Nano Magic Inc. Marks Progress

Miami, Florida, UNITED STATES


DETROIT, Michigan, Oct. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nano Magic Inc. (OTC: NMGX) (“Nano Magic” or the “Company”), a leader in cutting-edge nanotechnology powered solutions formulated in the U.S.A. released a Progress Report from President & CEO Tom Berman following the Company’s filing on October 5, 2020 of its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Berman explained:

“Next week marks my two-year anniversary with Nano Magic. PEN Inc., as it was known then, was struggling. The Company had capped out its revolving credit line, had a substantial working capital deficit, and had lost major customers. Over the course of the past two years, we have clawed our way ahead. Although we are still not where we want to be, I think it’s important to take a step back to acknowledge some the progress we have made. The new equity capital we have raised, in large part thanks to the vision of Ron Berman, has been a huge help.

A few key highlights over the past 24 months include

  • We created a new Nano Magic brand identity
  • We developed and are now launching our new Nano Magic product line
  • We paid off our secured credit line and substantially reduced legacy obligations
  • We brought manufacturing operations back in-house
  • We are in the process of upgrading our IT infrastructure – including the implementation of a CRM system and the impending launch of a new ERP system that will serve as the backbone of our manufacturing, inventory management and accounting organization
  • We have brought on new key talent in Sales, Accounting, Customer Service, IT, HR, R&D and Operations
  • We are current with our public filings with the SEC

Move of HQ and Manufacturing –

“We are in the process of moving our headquarters and Product Segment manufacturing operations from Cleveland, Ohio to Madison Heights, Michigan pursuant to the Lease we signed this summer. We anticipate that the move will be completed by the end of this month. The move to Michigan is another big step in the evolution of our rebirth.

“Our new headquarters will embody our ‘work hard, play harder’ mentality. We are focused on building a great team and culture that collectively is stronger than any single person. In order to attract, develop and retain top talent, the single biggest reward we offer is the opportunity to make an impact while being part of helping build something special; plus, we’ll also offer competitive compensation and benefits as well as amenities and perks at the facility intended to let the team know their work is appreciated.

“The new facility will be equipped with two new state of the art bottling lines to complement our current equipment. When installed, the additional equipment is expected to increase our production capacity substantially. We want to be ready to support the growth in demand that we have begun to see and the increases we anticipate from the launch of our Nano Magic branded products, including our anti-fog solutions rolling out now in a national drug store chain nationwide. In addition, our new facility will house a research and development laboratory that will be more than double the size of the one at the Company’s current space in Cleveland.

Trading suspension – the elephant in the room –

“I’ve been gun shy about making any public statements since the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued a temporary Order of Suspension of Trading of our common stock. The period of the 10-day trading suspension was May 1, 2020 through May 14, 2020, after which the company’s stock was able to resume trading.

“We issued a Press Release in response to the suspension and that statement speaks for itself. We are still waiting for the SEC to rule on the petition we filed seeking relief from the trading suspension because – as more fully explained in our detailed and comprehensive filings in that proceeding and are in the public record – we believe that the SEC erred in imposing the trading suspension on the Company’s common stock. Meanwhile, we are staying focused on building a strong company.

Conclusion –

“This is an extraordinarily exciting time for Nano Magic. More than ever we need the continued support of our stockholders and team as we harness the magic power of nanotechnology to take advantage of the momentum of increased demand for our products alongside the power of the brand we’re launching. Stay tuned!”
