"This financing, when added to JMAR's current cash position and untapped $3 million line of credit, enables JMAR to continue investment in our product development activities, including the BioSentry product line," commented Dennis E. Valentine, Chief Financial Officer of JMAR.
"With this financing in place, JMAR is able to accelerate its pursuit of the attractive business opportunities presented by our BioSentry water monitoring system," added Ronald A. Walrod, JMAR's Chief Executive Officer. "Recent orders for production BioSentry units to test as part of a municipal Homeland Security center, to operate as part of a city's security infrastructure for advanced water quality, and to monitor beverage production water for microorganisms, support our belief that continuing investment in this product line will create value for our shareholders," he continued.
