01 April 2024

FREDERICK, Md., April 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc.® (“TOMI”) (NASDAQ: TOMZ), a global company specializing in disinfection and decontamination utilizing its premier Binary Ionization Technology (BIT) platform through its SteraMist brand of products, today announced its fourth quarter and year end 2023 results.

TOMI Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Halden Shane, stated, “During 2023 we continued to expand our sales infrastructure through the broadening of our distribution network, diversify our product line to support our growing customer base and the related utilization of our SteraMist technology and deliver multiple custom engineered systems to key customers.

“We remain focused on expanding our internal and external sales infrastructure and business development initiatives. Last year we onboarded 9 distributors and 11 sales representatives, which expanded our presence both domestically and internationally. We anticipate the increased bandwidth of our internal and external sales channels will have a positive impact on our revenue in 2024 and beyond.

“In 2023 we made significant progress developing, manufacturing and validating new products for our elite customers. These new products will be the primary driver of growth in the years to come. We are reciving multiple orders from the Pharmaceutical, Vivarium, Food Industry and United States Homeland Security sectors. While our list of premium clients continued to expand, we diversified our product mix with the SteraMist Hybrid, Transport and Select Plus units, positioning us to achieve improved financial results moving forward.    Our products and related customer projects have long sale cycles, but as the number of engagements is growing, we expect to drive revenue growth over the next 18 months.

“We are off to a good start in 2024 as we landed a new SteraMist iHP Custom Engineered System (CES) installation with a California-based life sciences company and have seen further growth in our iHP service revenue. We will continue to focus on executing our strategies to grow revenues, expand business development and deliver improved results and value for our shareholders,” Dr. Shane concluded.
