Scott Switzer, the Company's Interim Chief Executive Officer stated, "In 2020 Costar Technologies faced the many challenges of COVID-19 and the associated impact to the business. The Costar team responded, developed and executed a restructuring plan to right size the business while not losing sight of new product development and the needs of our customers. We expanded our product portfolio to include a new line of NDAA compliant cameras and solutions. As we look to 2021, we are seeing evidence of increased activity in key markets as many of our customers return to full operations and resume projects that were placed on hold with the global pandemic."

Sarah Ryder, the Company's Chief Financial Officer went on to say, "The unification of our departments through our One Costar initiative drove efficiencies in many areas of the business, allowing us to generate positive income in the fourth quarter of 2020. The result of the unification also drove company-wide efficiencies which led to a large reduction in operational expenses. I am encouraged with how well the organization has adopted the One Costar Initiative and continue to be optimistic with the recent increase we are seeing in sales activity."

The Company's independent auditors completed their analysis of the Company's financial condition. The Independent Auditor's Report, including financial statements and applicable footnote disclosures, is available on our website at www.costartechnologies.com.
