Sono-Tek Announces Record Year End Results

Stocks in this article: SOTK

MILTON, N.Y., March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sono-Tek Corporation (OTCQB: SOTK) today announced record sales of approximately $9,903,000 for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2011, compared to sales of $7,242,000 for the previous fiscal year, an increase of 37%.  Results are unofficial until Sono-Tek's audit is completed in May 2011. Sales increased versus last year due to growth in the advanced energy markets involving coating systems for fuel cells and solar energy devices, sales to the medical device coating market, sales of coating systems for glass and non-woven fabric manufacturers, and the resurgence and increase of spray fluxing business worldwide.

According to Dr. Christopher L. Coccio, Sono-Tek's Chairman and CEO, "We expect that our net income will be in the range of $585,000 - $600,000, or $.04 cents per share, for the trailing twelve months when the audit is complete, a significant increase from last year's result of $82,000. Looking ahead, based on our existing backlog, we expect to see similar continued sales levels and profitability in the first half of our new fiscal year . We are quite pleased that most of the development initiatives we put in place during the recession have been showing such positive results, and we are looking forward to another year of strong growth in sales and net income."

The Company also announced that effective February 22, 2011, its common stock is being quoted on OTC Markets Group Inc's ("OTCM") OTCQB platform.  The change in coverage to the OTCQB trading platform was caused by the migration of the Company's market makers away from the OTCBB, and does not affect, nor is it a reflection upon, Sono-Tek's business, operations or growth prospects.  Sono-Tek is current in all of its reporting obligations to the SEC and the delisting from the OTCBB was not caused by any action or inaction by Sono-Tek.
