PositiveID Corporation (“PositiveID” or “Company”) (OTC:PSID), a life sciences company focused on detection and diagnostics, announced today that 2017 bookings for its E-N-G Mobile Systems (“ENG”) subsidiary increased over 100% from 2016, driven primarily by growth in ENG’s mobile labs bookings.
Since PositiveID’s acquisition of ENG in December 2015, ENG has focused strategically on growing the mobile labs segment of its business, with mobile lab bookings representing approximately 40% of overall bookings in 2017. Bookings represent signed purchase orders or contracts received from customers. The Company recognizes revenue on booked contracts once the vehicle is built and delivered to the customer.
“We are very proud of the significant year-over-year growth in ENG’s overall business, and specifically the strength of the mobile labs segment, where we differentiate ourselves from the competition due to our team of off-staff scientists and industry experts,” stated William J. Caragol, PositiveID’s Chairman and CEO. “We are also pleased to report that we believe the strength in ENG’s business will continue for the foreseeable future, and have projected continued year-over-year growth in the 2017 fourth quarter (for which we have not yet reported financial results), 2018 and beyond. We will continue to update the investor community as we get more insight into ENG’s future bookings,” continued Caragol.
ENG has delivered more than 1,500 specialty vehicles to customers around the globe, including more than 400 mobile laboratories, 600 broadcast news vehicles, and more than 400 vehicles for cellular, RF, infrared, and other applications. ENG’s MobiLab(TM) line, mobile laboratories for chemical and biological detection, monitoring and analysis, bring these capabilities to the field where they are needed most, with applications ranging from general purpose and chemistry labs to BSL3-ready and full CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives) threat detection and analysis.
