Company President Describes Recent Milestones and Strategies for Continued Growth
RIDGEFIELD, Conn., Jan 19, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Markland Technologies, Inc. ( MRKL ), a defense and homeland security company transforming advanced laboratory technology into real-world products, has announced the online availability of an in-depth interview given by Company President Ken Ducey. Markland CEO Robert Tarini made the announcement.
The entire 2,500-word interview is available free online at http://www.twst.com/ceos.htm
In the interview, Mr. Ducey describes fundamental business information about Markland Technologies, and provides an insight into the Company's strategic goals and direction for the future.
"The Wall Street Transcript is an excellent format to allow us to explain to interested investors how Markland works, where our unique value lies, and how our strategic plan will position us for continued success in the homeland security and defense sector," said Mr. Ducey. "We are a highly technical company that is moving quickly in a complex and evolving industry, and as such we welcome every chance to tell our story in a clear and detailed manner."
Markland is a developer of next-generation technologies for a number of key segments of the homeland security and defense marketplaces. Among the Company's next-generation technologies and products are imaging sensors and other tools to help soldiers and other security personnel identify potential suicide bombers and other armed attackers.
"I was particularly interested to describe Markland's business plans for the coming years," said Mr. Ducey. "We have grown our revenues significantly over the last two years. But we have also put into place business plans that we believe will enable the Company to continue to thrive in the homeland security space for the next several years, during which we expect the industry to undergo major consolidation. All of our efforts are directed towards building and increasing Markland's technological and marketplace leadership in the coming years."
Mr. Ducey describes the business strategies for acquisition and organic growth that have enabled Markland to quickly evolve from its startup phase into a Company with annual revenues of approximately $70 million. One ongoing contract, a five-year omnibus contract between wholly-owned Markland subsidiary EOIR Technologies and the U.S. Army, may potentially provide a maximum ceiling amount of up to $80 million in fiscal year revenues for Markland. The contract has a potential value of approximately $406 million over the life of the contract.
