Kevin G. Kroger, President and COO, noted, “The second quarter of 2013 was not as strong as the same time period last year, as a couple of our larger distributors’ sales are below their business for same period. However, we continue to focus on efforts to add to our overall distributor base, as exemplified by our announcement last week in a release that we have entered into Puradyn’s first ever exclusive distributorship agreement in the commercial marine industry with MER equipment.”
Kroger concluded, “Our technology is gaining understanding and acceptance; however, there continues to be a slow process of transitioning from a verbal commitment to actual purchase order. The industry trade magazine coverage over the past 12 months or so, which has promoted the direct and indirect benefits of our product’s performance to the bottom line, is helping to shorten that time between verbal commitment and actual purchase order release. For the remainder of 2013, we remain confident in our overall strategy and targeted markets.”
