Superconductor Technologies to Present at the 2015 European Conference on Applied Superconductivity Sept. 6th to 10th

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Jeong Huh of Superconductor Technologies Inc. (STI) (Nasdaq:SCON), a world leader in the development and production of high temperature superconducting (HTS) materials and associated technologies, will present "2G HTS Coated Conductors 1 km Scale-Up at STI" during the 1A-WT-01: Wires and Tapes – Industrial Developments session at the European Conference on Applied Superconductivity (EUCAS) in Lyon, France on Monday, Sept. 7th at 5:00 p.m. in the Salon Pasteur. Dr. Huh will review STI's technology and provide an update on Conductus® wire production scale-up milestones. In addition, STI will join the Robinson Research Institute in its booth, number 10, from Sept. 6th to 10th.

"STI is excited to meet with our customers and strategic partner, the Robinson Research Institute, as we complete qualification testing with customers producing fault current limiter, magnet and power transmission cable products using HTS wire technology," said Adam Shelton, STI's VP of Marketing and Product Line Management. "EUCAS presents a unique forum for industry leaders from around the world to meet in one location and present new technical discoveries related to superconducting products. The event offers an exceptional opportunity to build on our existing relationships with companies that are seeking a reliable supply of high performance wire to commercialize their products. We are dedicated to completing the final qualification stage with our customers and look to supply them Conductus wire that improves the product availability, performance and economics of HTS solutions."

Safe Harbor Statement

Statements in this press release regarding our business that are not historical facts are "forward-looking statements" that involve risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are inherently subject to uncertainties and other factors, which could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. These factors and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: our limited cash and a history of losses; our need to materially grow our revenues from commercial operations and/or to raise additional capital (which financing may not be available on acceptable terms or at all) in the very near future, before cash reserves are depleted (which reserves are expected to be sufficient into the fourth quarter of 2015), to implement our current business plan and maintain our viability; the performance and use of our equipment to produce wire in accordance with our timetable; overcoming technical challenges in attaining milestones to develop and manufacture commercial lengths of our HTS wire; the possibility of delays in customer evaluation and acceptance of our HTS wire; the limited number of potential customers and customer pressures on the selling prices of our products; the limited number of suppliers for some of our components and our HTS wire; there being no significant backlog from quarter to quarter; our market being characterized by rapidly advancing technology; the impact of competitive products, technologies and pricing; manufacturing capacity constraints and difficulties; the impact of any financing activity on the level of our stock price; the dilutive impact of any issuances of securities to raise capital; cost and uncertainty from compliance with environmental regulations; and local, regional, and national and international economic conditions and events and the impact they may have on us and our customers.

Forward-looking statements can be affected by many other factors, including, those described in the "Business" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" sections of STI's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 and in STI's other public filings.
