Share:

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

Q3 2017 Operational Highlights

The Company reached major milestones in its readiness plan for volume
production in medical and automotive markets. Showcasing its new
manufacturing facility at its recent open house, the Company
demonstrated its ENGEL-based medical grade molding systems and upgraded
EON industrial grade molding systems. New metal injection molding
production systems were also introduced. The facility is configured to
scale rapidly. A planned power upgrade will support additional expansion
in the first half of 2018.

"Our customers have shifted from an interest in a novel technology to a
strong desire to produce high volumes of amorphous metal parts. We now
have the capabilities customers demand to scale high-value production,"
said Bruce Bromage, COO.

Q3 2017 Financial Summary

During the third quarter of 2017, the Company generated revenues of $36
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 $1.7 million
in both Q3 2017 and Q3 2016. Research and development expense was $500
thousand in Q3 2017, compared to $548 thousand in Q3 2016.

Cash and restricted cash totaled $43.3 million at September 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 September 30, 2017 Form 10Q,
which was filed earlier today.
