Sono-Tek Corp. (OTCQX: SOTK), the leading developer and manufacturer of ultrasonic coating systems, today announced that it has retained PCG Advisory Inc., a leading investor relations and digital strategies firm, to serve as an advisor for investor relations and strategic communications.
Sono-Tek is the leading provider of ultrasonic coating systems for medical devices, semiconductors and electronics components, glass and specialty glass for electronic devices and recently reported record quarterly sales of $3.35 million for its second fiscal quarter and continued record backlog.
Dr. Christopher L. Coccio, Chairman and CEO of Sono-Tek, commented, “Our second fiscal quarter revenues were up 19% over last year, with a strong increase in the bottom line, and we project a good second half as well, with third quarter revenues expected to be 15%-20% above last year’s third quarter, and for this trend to continue in the fourth quarter. Many things are contributing to our growth this year including entry into larger and more complex coating machine applications, new segments of our historical electronics and medical markets, and the introduction of advanced six axis coating solutions to supplement our robust three-dimensional multi axis solutions.
“We use our Applications Engineering resources to help customers bridge the gap between their needs and our equipment, assuring their successful implementation in increasingly complex applications. The current and anticipated growth has led us to increase our manufacturing capacity and to add new computer controlled manufacturing equipment to meet these demands. With our outlook for continued strong growth, we believe that it’s the right time to raise our profile with the investment community, and this has led to our engagement with PCG Advisory.”
Jeff Ramson, Founder and CEO of PCG Advisory, added, “As Sono-Tek’s strategy to provide customers with a high level of application engineering support in combination with their large complex ultrasonic coating systems continues to gain momentum, it has become increasingly important to increase the Company’s awareness among investors and other key stakeholders. My team has a proven track record of creating targeted messaging and connecting clients with the right investors and we look forward to putting this expertise to work for Sono-Tek Corporation.”
