Following the adjournment of the formal meeting, the board, led by Gregory J. Quarles, Ph.D., chief executive officer of Applied Energetics addressed questions from the shareholders present.

Mr. Quarles gave an overview of the market and the company’s products.  Mr. Quarles described how recent events have given rise to increased military spending, and corresponding threat levels posed which create a strong potential demand for the company’s ultrashort pulse optical source technology as many of the new threats can most effectively be countered using light energy.

Mr. Quarles also described how the Company’s technology can be applied to a range of products both in the defense sector and in other commercial markets. He also discussed the continued relevance of the company’s Laser Guided Energy (LGE™) technology to various defense applications. The technology and programs behind these discussions are at various stages of maturity with some having an 18 to 36-month runway while other products are very early in the development cycle with a range of 4-7 years.  Throughout the lifecycle of a contract, revenues and timelines are smaller in the earlier years, but grow as the contract moves along the lifecycle process and milestones are achieved.  From an analysis standpoint, early in the lifecycle process, it’s important to understand a contract’s potential in achieving a program of record status.  Mr. Quarles also remarked that the discussions we are having on a daily and weekly basis are with customers across various agencies utilizing numerous technologies and IP of Applied Energetics. From a diversification standpoint, this reception is very exciting for our future moving forward.

Capital needs were also discussed, it being noted that a Capital Program of $10M-12M would more than support a 24-36 month business plan.
