Dr. Halden Shane, TOMI's Chief Executive Officer, stated: "During the quarter, we expanded adoption of our SteraMist™ platform around the globe. SteraMist was the equipment of choice in a variety of decontamination applications including in South Korea, West Africa, Malaysia and Singapore. Globally, we have and will continue to expand our distribution channels while also broadening awareness with academic presentations, product demonstrations, trade show exhibitions and industry conferences. While these efforts delivered financial improvements in the third quarter, this is merely the beginning. We are continuing to innovate within our SteraMist platform and will be filing patents to protect these new product features and form factors. The opportunities for our SteraMist product and Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) are abundant, and I look forward to keeping you apprised of our progress as we reach additional milestones."
