Psychemedics Corporation Responds To Recent Price Volatility
Date:2/1/2017

ACTON, Mass., Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Psychemedics Corporation (NASDAQ: PMD) today announced that recent volatility in its stock price on January 31, 2017 appears to have been caused by a news report of a court ruling in Brazil involving Psychemedics Brasil. 

Psychemedics Brasil is an independent distributor of Psychemedics Corporation's hair testing services in Brazil, and Psychemedics Corporation has no ownership interest in Psychemedics Brasil.  Psychemedics Corporation is not involved in the lawsuit, and was not made aware of the court ruling until it was publicly released today.

Psychemedics Brasil has been a distributor of Psychemedics Corporation's hair testing services for more than fifteen years, and will be appealing the court's ruling.  We expect that our business in Brazil will continue as usual.   

Psychemedics Corporation is the world's largest provider of hair testing for the detection of drugs of abuse. The Company's patented process is used by thousands of U.S. and international clients, including over 10% of the Fortune 500 companies, for pre-employment and random drug testing. Major police departments, Federal Reserve Banks, schools, and other public entities also rely on our unique patented drug testing process. We strongly believe our drug testing method to be superior to any other product currently in use, including traditional urine testing and other hair testing methods.
