Nanotech Signs Additional Banknote Security Feature Development Contract
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – June 10, 2015 – Nanotech Security Corp. (TSXV: NTS) (OTCQX: NTSFF), today announced signing an additional contract with another top ten issuing authority to develop a unique optically-variable security feature for incorporation into future banknotes. The issuing authority has requested the Company develop an icon with specific features based on characteristics of Nanotech’s patented technology.
The Company will provide working banknote image samples of a new, novel security feature which shows a distinct colour change when the viewing angle of the image is tilted. The image will have the potential to include various levels of security; overt and/or covert.
The development contract is valued in the low six figures and is expected to be completed over the next six months. The Company feels the signing of this contract is further validation in establishing its unique optically variable device technology in the global banknote and secure document industry.
“We continue to see increased interest in our optically variable device technologies as we gain more exposure and expand our presence in the security feature market,” said Doug Blakeway, Chief Executive Officer of Nanotech. “The signing of this latest contract shows issuing authorities around the world have taken notice of our Company and our unique patented technology.”
The discussion and analysis in this news release contains forward-looking statements concerning anticipated developments in our operations in future periods, the adequacy of our financial resources, and the events or conditions that may occur in the future. Forward-looking statements are frequently, but not always, identified by words such as “expects”, “anticipates”, “believes”, “intends”, “estimates”, “predicts”, “potential”, “targeted” “plans”, “possible” and similar expressions, or statements that events, conditions or results “will”, “may”, “could” or “should” occur or be achieved.
These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements about our market opportunities, strategies, competition, and the Company’s views that its nano-optical and optical thin film technologies will continue to show promise for mass production and commercial application. Other forward-looking statements imply that the Company will remain capable of being financed and/or will be able to partner development until commercial sales are eventually realized. The principal risks related to these forward looking statements are that the Company’s intellectual property claims will not prove sufficiently broad or enforceable to provide the necessary commercial protection and to attract the necessary capital and/or that the Company’s products will not be able to displace entrenched hologram, metalized strip tagging, and other conventional anti-counterfeiting technologies sufficiently to allow for profitability.
Our forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs, expectations and opinions of management on the date the statements are made. Consequently, all forward-looking statements made in this discussion and analysis of the financial conditions and results of operations or the documents incorporated by reference are qualified by this cautionary statement and there can be no assurance that actual results or developments we anticipate will be realized.
