Valley Forge Composite Technologies Announces $5 Million Agreement In Principle for Initial THOR LVX System Deployment
COVINGTON, Ky., May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Valley Forge Composite Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: VLYF), developer of state-of-the-art detection systems, including the THOR LVX photonuclear detection system, today announced that it has an agreement in principle with a private US based company that is negotiating an agreement with a Latin American government for the first commercial development, delivery, and maintenance of a THOR LVX photonuclear detection system. The customer will use the system for high-volume, precision scanning of cargo entering the country. Valley Forge has funded $300,000 for the posting of a bond, which we believe is the final step necessary to signing the agreement (the “Agreement”). We believe construction of the system should begin in the next 90 days or so.
Under the proposed terms of the Agreement, the Agreement will be for a five-year term, Valley Forge will receive an initial payment for the system and ongoing monthly revenue on a per-scan basis. Management is in discussions with several potential partners to help finance the Agreement.
“This is the most important development in the history of Valley Forge, as today we announce a potential agreement relating to the sale of a THOR LVX photonuclear detection system,” commented Louis Brothers, president and chief executive officer of Valley Forge Composite Technologies. “The last year was focused on completing the patent applications and licenses of this important system, as well system upgrades of the first THOR LVX prototype. This set the stage for a commercial launch. Adding this incremental revenue from THOR LVX is anticipated to have a material and positive effect on the Company helping to drive the Company’s revenue and profit growth in the years to come.”
Construction is expected to begin in the next 90 days or so, and the Company anticipates completing construction and installation by the end of the first quarter of 2013. Total value of the Agreement, including ongoing fees paid on a per-scan basis, is expected to exceed $5 million. The Company will recognize revenue as phases of the project are completed.
