Mr. John B.

Importantly, our 2021 YTD financial results - including total revenue, instrument & consumable sales, and BaroFold/UST services - maintained our strong improvement trend compared to the same 9-month period in 2020. Significantly, anticipation for our eco-friendly agrochemical product sales in Q4 2021, followed by the release of our much-anticipated UST platform for leasing and licensing in the early part of 2022 continues to build. We are receiving numerous unsolicited calls every week from a variety of markets regarding our product introduction timetable to help deliver better nanoemulsified products via the UST process. We are very excited about the expected impact we believe our UST platform release will have in 2022."
Q3 2021 Operational and Technical Highlights
- Set up a U.S. warehousing, processing, and product packaging facility for our new PBI Agrochem subsidiary.
- Reported the successful UST nanoemulsification processing of Astaxanthin and Neem Oil.
- UST processed nanoemulsions of CBD oil in water soared past our one-year stability goal - now at 18 months.
- Enacted strategic expansion of BaroFold refolding program with successful debut of instrument sale/lease program.
- Announced plans to set-up Toll Manufacturing partnerships on the east and west U.S. coasts.
- Unveiled aggressive goals for Q4 2021 & FY 2022, including NASDAQ/NYSE Uplist, Agrochem Acquisition, and Profitability.
Mr. Richard T. Schumacher, President and CEO of PBI, commented: "The many successes of the 2021 third quarter have set the stage for continued foundation building in Q4, in preparation for anticipated major growth in 2022. We believe our achievements in Q4 2021 and FY 2022 will be many, and will include: (i) significant increases in agrochem revenue; (ii) shipment of the industrial-scale UST system to our partner The Ohio State University ("OSU"); (iii) announcement of progress made by the OSU/PBIO Consortium leveraging UST for improved food quality, safety and stability; (iv) commercial release of the UST platform; (v) executed fee-for-service contracts for UST toll processing; (vi) up-listing of PBIO to a national stock exchange; and (vii) profitability by or before the end of 2022. Our team and our partners are highly motivated by PBI's recent successes and strengthening, but we believe the best is yet to come."
About Pressure BioSciences, Inc.
Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) is a leader in the development and sale of innovative, broadly enabling, pressure-based solutions for the worldwide life sciences industry. Our products are based on the unique properties of both constant (i.e., static) and alternating (i.e., pressure cycling technology, or PCT) hydrostatic pressure. PCT is a patented enabling technology platform that uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient and ultra-high levels to control bio-molecular interactions safely and reproducibly (e.g., cell lysis, biomolecule extraction). Our primary focus is the development of PCT-based products for biomarker and target discovery, drug design and development, biotherapeutics characterization and quality control, soil & plant biology, forensics, and counter-bioterror applications. Additionally, major new market opportunities have emerged in the use of our pressure-based technologies in the following areas: (1) the use of our recently acquired, patented technology from BaroFold, Inc. (the "BaroFold" technology) to allow entry into the bio-pharma contract services sector, and (2) the use of our recently-patented, scalable, high-efficiency, pressure-based Ultra Shear Technology ("UST") platform to (i) create stable nanoemulsions of otherwise immiscible fluids (e.g., oils and water) and to (ii) prepare higher quality, homogenized, extended shelf-life or room temperature stable low-acid liquid foods that cannot be effectively preserved using existing non-thermal technologies.
