PCT is a patented, enabling technology platform with multiple applications in the estimated $6 billion life sciences sample preparation market. PCT uses cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient and ultra-high levels to control bio-molecular interactions. PBI currently focuses its efforts on the development and sale of PCT-enhanced sample preparation systems (instruments and consumables) for mass spectrometry, biomarker discovery, bio-therapeutics characterization, vaccine development, soil and plant biology, forensics, histology, and counter-bioterror applications.
Forward Looking Statements
Statements contained in this press release regarding the Company's intentions, hopes, beliefs, expectations, or predictions of the future are "forward-looking'' statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward looking statements include the estimated size of the life sciences sample preparation market; the potential applications of the Company's PCT; the Company's plans and ability to secure sufficient financing to support working capital needs; statements related to the strong financial and operating results of the 2013 first quarter, and the Company's expectations that the increase in revenues and reduction in costs will continue in 2013 and beyond; that we will be successful in releasing new products to the market in 2013 and beyond, including a method to increase the quality and throughput of rape kit testing, and that such a method could result in the apprehension and conviction of perpetrators of sexual assault crimes; that we have made significant progress in our goal to develop and implement a sound financial roadmap for PBI, and that we will successfully implement both short and long-term financial plans, and that these successes will result in a stronger Company and a positive effect on the value of PBI for all shareholders. These statements are based upon the Company's current expectations, forecasts, and assumptions that are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially from those indicated by these forward-looking statements. These risks, uncertainties, and other factors include, but are not limited to: the Company's financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 may not necessarily be indicative of future results as future revenues may not meet expectations due to the possible failure of the Company's products to achieve commercial acceptance, changes in customer's needs and technological innovations, expenses may be higher than anticipated due to unforeseen costs or cost increases, and the Company may not secure sufficient capital to implement its plans; possible difficulties or delays in the implementation of the Company's strategies that may adversely affect the Company's continued commercialization of PCT; the Company may not be successful in selling its PCT product line because scientists may not perceive the advantages of PCT over other sample preparation methods; that other researchers may not be able to replicate the data the Company previously reported or see the advantages of using the Company's PCT platform in previously reported studies; and if actual operating costs are higher than anticipated, or revenues from product sales are less than anticipated, the Company may need additional capital beyond May 2013. Further, given the uncertainty in the capital markets and the current status of the Company's product development and commercialization activities, there can be no assurance that the Company will secure the additional capital necessary to fund its operations beyond May 2013 on acceptable terms, if at all. These statements are based upon the Company's current expectations, forecasts, and assumptions that are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially from those indicated by these forward-looking statements. These risks, uncertainties, and other factors include, but are not limited to, the risks and uncertainties discussed under the heading "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012, and other reports filed by the Company from time to time with the SEC. The Company undertakes no obligation to update any of the information included in this release, except as otherwise required by law.
