PEN (OTCQB:PENC) has announced its financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2017.
As quoted in the press release:

Scott Rickert, PEN’s President, Chairman and CEO, said: “The second quarter was an active one at PEN. We commenced the relocation of our Ohio operations to a smaller facility nearby, a move that will allow us to outsource a good portion of our manufacturing and lower our cost structure while providing the flexibility to quickly meet the diverse and dynamic packaging needs of our customers. More importantly, it will allow PEN to focus on our primary mission of building a consumer products company offering compelling products enabled by nanotechnology.
“We are preparing for upcoming relaunch of our key health and safety products, including our environmentally friendly surface protector, which we expect to kick off in the fourth quarter once the relocation is complete. The PEN Design Center has evolved into a true development partner for industrial and commercial customers, and is making a name for itself as a key supplier of inks and pastes for the printed electronics industry and graphene foils used in medical imaging. I am impressed with the contributions of our team members on each of these fronts as we move forward to position PEN for future success.”
