Sono-Tek Announces First Quarter Results
Date:7/14/2009

MILTON, N.Y., July 14, /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sono-Tek Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: SOTK) today announced sales of $1,465,000 for the three months ended May 31, 2009, compared to sales of $1,621,000 for the prior year period, a decrease of $156,000 or 10%. During the current quarter, sales of fluxer units, nozzles, Widetrack units, spray dryer units and solder recovery systems decreased when compared to the prior year. However, the Company did see an increase in sales of programmable XYZ precision coating units, SonoFlux EZ units, stent coating systems and Hypersonic units (recently released) when compared to the prior year.

The Company incurred a net loss of ($169,427) for the three months ended May 31, 2009, compared to a net loss of ($130,458) for the prior year period. During the quarter, the Company reduced its cash expenditures and operating expenses. These actions had a positive impact on this quarter's net loss. The Company's net use of cash during the current quarter amounted to less than $1,000, and is consistent with its goal to conserve and maintain adequate cash reserves.

Shipments of circuit boards by our customers, to whom we provide spray fluxing equipment, were still lower than previous levels in the US, as they are still being impacted by the recession. However, we are seeing positive signs in other regions, plus strong growth in fuel cell and solar energy applications in the US and abroad. Another promising area has been in the food industry, where we recently reported our first industrial coating sale for the application of flavoring oils to baked goods.

Dr. Christopher L. Coccio, Sono-Tek's Chairman and CEO, reiterated that "Late in the preceding fiscal year, we began to reduce costs with the goal of bringing the business back to a profitable mode again. We have now been able to reduce expenditures that were needed to fulfill the business development objectives, and senior management also took voluntary pay reductions (20%) to demonstrate our commitment to the future. In the current economic climate, the Company continues to enforce its rigorous prepayment terms for large scale orders, which may delay the shipment of orders and affect the timing of revenue. We believe that the new products, technology developments, and increased marketing and sales coverage we now have in place will continue to generate new business in the clean energy, medical, and food areas for us in the current fiscal year. The combination of these sales, with the cost reductions, may lead the way to profitability later this year, particularly since a part of the US stimulus plan is aimed at increasing domestic capability in clean energy technologies which include both fuel and solar cells."
