Management Commentary

Regarding the Company's results for the second quarter of 2018, Bruce
Bromage, the Company's Chief Operating Officer noted, "The second
quarter of 2018 has been instrumental in our continued evolution into a
trusted, volume manufacturer. We delivered amorphous alloy parts under
early production orders with medical and consumer products customers.
Our product development efforts continue to focus on lowering
manufacturing costs, increasing customer confidence in high volume
commercial applications, and developing effective strategies to
infiltrate target markets."

Dr. Bromage went on to note that "We have identified an exceptional
candidate to serve as our Vice President of Sales and Marketing. We are
excited by a fresh outlook and approach to markets and customers, while

Q2 2018 Financial Summary

During the second quarter of 2018, the Company generated $55 thousand in
revenue as it continued to focus on the development and manufacturing 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 $1.5 million
in Q2 2018, as compared to $1.3 million in Q2 2017. The increase was
primarily due to increases in non-cash expenses for depreciation due to
continued capital investments in the Company's manufacturing center.

Research and development expense was $0.6 million in Q2 2018, as
compared to $0.4 million in Q2 2017. The increase from the prior year
was mainly due to additional expenses associated with alloy and
application development.

Cash and restricted cash totaled $37.9 million at June 30, 2018, as
compared to $41.3 million at December 31, 2017.

For a more detailed and complete analysis of the Company's financial
results, please refer to the Company's June 30, 2018 Form 10Q, which was
filed earlier today.
