Leonard Rosenbaum, President and Chief Executive Officer stated: “We are pleased with the growth in orders and revenue which we have experienced so far this year and we are continuing to pursue additional opportunities in our key markets. These efforts continue to be successful as our bookings momentum has continued into Q-4 and our three principal markets: aerospace manufacturing; medical device manufacturing and research laboratories (university and industrial) continue to show significant activity.  We anticipate that our orders and revenue will continue to grow through the end of the year and beyond.

“Our Application Laboratory continues to advance technology for Graphene, Nanowires and Nanotube materials and work with potential end users to apply this technology to advance nano materials into large volume, value added products.  Custom CVD solutions and systems which we provide help enable our industrial customers to scale up their production requirements.

“With regards to the judgment, we disagree with and are very disappointed with the Court’s ruling in connection with this contractual dispute regarding events which took place over five years ago.  However, this will not affect our determination or ability to continue to build upon our many successes and we remain confident that we will continue to grow orders and revenue as well as the reputation of CVD as a leading designer and manufacturer of custom and standard state-of-the-art equipment.”
