COMMENTS FROM DR. BAL
“The transformation of SINTX from a retail spine business into an advanced ceramics company continues at an impressive pace”, said Dr. Sonny Bal, President & CEO of SINTX. “In the 2nd quarter, we hired Don Bray as Vice President of Business Development to pursue opportunities outside of medical device, we exhibited at multiple trade shows, published additional scientific papers, and met with a sizable number of significant partners in both the biomedical and non-biomedical markets. In addition, we vastly improved our capitalization structure and renewed our lease for a five year term at a significant cost reduction. CTL-Amedica remains our number one partner as demonstrated by the increase in sales to CTL in the 2nd quarter. Our factory is very busy with orders and we fully expect 3rd quarter revenue to exceed 2nd quarter. The future for SINTX Technologies is a very bright one.
