Share:

Liquidmetal® Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB:LQMT), the leading
developer of amorphous alloys, reported results for its second quarter,
ended June 30, 2017.

Q2 2017 Operational Highlights

During the second quarter of 2017, the Company received two hot crucible
amorphous metal molding machines from its licensing partner Eontec
Ltd. These machines allow the production of amorphous alloy parts that
are up to three times larger and one-third the cost of established
technologies. In addition, the Company continued the build out of its
new manufacturing facility which the Company purchased in February of
2017.

"The Company is making significant progress towards expanding its
manufacturing capabilities. With the renovation of our state of the art
facility nearing completion, we can begin commissioning our
manufacturing operations with both our hot and cold crucible amorphous
metal molding machines. Exciting times are upon us," said Professor Li,
Chairman and CEO of Liquidmetal.

Q2 2017 Financial Summary

During the second quarter of 2017, the Company generated revenues of $58
thousand as it continued to focus on the development of prototype and
commercial parts for its customers and partnering with licensees on the
development of the Company's technology and production processes.

Selling, marketing, general and administrative expense was $1.4 million
in Q2 2017, as compared to $1.8 million in Q2 2016. Research and
development expense was $439 thousand in Q2 2017, compared to $623
thousand in Q2 2016. The decreases were primarily due to decreases in
employee headcount and incentive compensation.

Cash and restricted cash totaled $45.4 million at June 30, 2017, as
compared to $58.9 million at December 31, 2016. The decrease was
primarily attributable to 2017 capital expenditures associated with the
continued build-out of the Company's manufacturing capabilities.

results, please refer to the Company's June 30, 2017 Form 10Q, which was
filed earlier today.
