LightPath Technologies Provides Update On Infrared Initiatives

ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LightPath Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: LPTH) ("LightPath", the "Company" or "we"), a global manufacturer, distributor and integrator of patented optical components and high-level assemblies, provided an update to shareholders on its progress within its infrared lens initiatives. Notwithstanding a challenged global market environment, the company is on track to deliver exceptional year-over-year growth in its infrared business, and expects to provide details of this growth in its fourth quarter and full year 2012 earnings report due out at the end of this month.

Jim Gaynor, President and Chief Executive Officer of LightPath, commented, "We are pleased to see continued market acceptance of our innovative products and a healthy flow of orders, for both our core precision molded and new infrared product lines. In particular, we are seeing our infrared business being driven by demand for our quantum cascade laser lenses, with customers in various subsectors, such as infrared countermeasures, gas analysis and spectroscopy, both through our direct sales efforts and through the major catalogue houses. Our revenues last year grew 67% from this group, and we're on pace to achieve growth that is substantially above market in this business, and expect more material financial results in Fiscal 2013 and beyond as we grow from a relatively small base."

"We continue to make good progress on our infrared development project with Raytheon. A product design has been finalized and prototypes are being built to establish a baseline process. Manufacturing and test equipment has been ordered and work to optimize the material system to find the best processing and lowest cost material are underway," continued Mr. Gaynor. "We have invested in additional resources to see that we realize the full potential of this program. During the next 12 months this program will result in new technologies and processes that will significantly reduce our manufacturing costs and increase our ability to commercialize these technologies. We believe that our addressable market for infrared is in the neighborhood of $100-$150 million. We'll have more details on that later this month when we report our earnings on August 30th."
