Clement Forget, President and CEO of Clemex Technologies Inc. declared: "We
are quite pleased with the results of this second Quarter of 2013. Clemex had
reasonable success in the manufacturing sector in the USA where the automotive
industry continues to perform well since the beginning of the year. We have
also concluded important sales in the steel manufacturing industries, a sector
of activity that had declined in the last few years. Finally, sales of our
MicroHardness Testers, the Clemex CMT.HD keep up at a steady rate, confirming
that Clemex is definitely offering one of the best instruments on worldwide
market for this field of application.
The CEO continued "Sales for this Quarter are in line with our internal
forecasts and take us back to profitability. While we work on keeping
expenses under control, we invest more in marketing activities in view of the
introduction of the new line of instruments for Hematology which should occur
within the next six months. Concerning this matter, Clemex along with its
French partner RAL Diagnostics participated at one of most important Medical
instruments Trade show in the world, Medica in Düsseldorf, Germany this past
November where we introduced our latest instrument, the HemaCyto 2L and the
interest from the show attendees was extremely positive. We have also just
exhibited the same instrument this week in Atlanta GA, USA, at the ASH
(American Society for Hematology) conference where we also had an excellent
response from the American Medical community. Our R & D team is working very
hard to fine tune the last details of the instruments while a three month
validation period will be required before the official launching".
