PROVO, Utah, March 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Galtech Semiconductor Materials Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: GTSM) -- Galtech's president William F. Pratt today issued a website letter to stockholders which included the following statement, "As a management team we continue to be encouraged by our progress in the manufacture of cadmium telluride compound semiconductor materials and our opportunities to commercialize our crystal growing process. As we announced in our December news release, we completed construction of our testing and production facility, and calibration and testing of equipment. Since that time Galtech has been engaged in production trials to improve its crystal growth process. We are optimistic about what we have seen to date; the facility and equipment are performing well, and confirm our earlier expectations and analysis. "In a September 20, 1999 press release, Galtech announced that it had completed the construction of a test automobile that was to be used as a platform for testing and developing of its unique electrical motor/generator technology. While our main focus remains the development and production of compound semiconductor materials, the company has continued to gather baseline information on the performance of the electric vehicle using existing technology in our test vehicle. As we stated in September, as time and resources permit we will continue to further the development of our patented motor/generator technology. Additional information can be seen on our website. "We appreciate your patience and will continue positive, constructive progress toward achieving our business and technical objectives." Galtech is an innovative research and development company with its beginnings in the development and manufacture of high quality, specialty, compound semiconductor materials. Galtech was reorganized in 1998 to manufacture compound semiconductor materials and is based in cadmium telluride (CdTe) process and product development. Crystalline material made from this compound is capable of converting solar or other sources of radiant energy to electrical current. Such materials are widely used in solar-cell arrays, lasers, infrared detectors and other devices. This press release includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties.
