The Company notes that the timing of a reverse stock split has not been determined, but is anticipated to be reviewed by the Board next year after the Company's successful achievement of one or more noteworthy business objectives and business development activities currently underway.
Some of the business highlights discussed by the Company's Board of Directors during its recent meetings included:
- The continued progress towards expansion of products and the expected growth in revenue within the Company's radiochemical products segment.
- The strong performance of the cobalt products segment during for the first half of 2018 and the Company's high expectations for continued growth of revenue in this segment throughout 2018 and beyond. A major reason cited for the highly optimistic outlook for this segment is because of the long-awaited resumption of high specific activity cobalt deliveries from the U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Test Reactor late in 2018.
- The continued revenue growth in the Company's radiological services segment which is being driven by growing contract opportunities for field services involving the recovery and disposal of disused therapy and industrial devices.
Dr. Robert Atcher, a member of the Board of Directors said, "We are seeing good progress across all the business segments and we believe these new developments in each of the segments should portend improved financial results for the Company's future."
