Kinderhook, N.Y., August 14, 2019 – American Bio Medica Corporation (OTCPK: ABMC) today announced financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019. 

Chief Executive Officer Melissa A. Waterhouse stated, “We are pleased that the second quarter of 2019 was our second consecutive quarter of increased sales. While sales are down when comparing prior periods, we are hopeful that we are on the right track to reversing that trend. Our contract business continues to grow and we expect this will positively impact sales in the second half of 2019. In addition to these new customers, we are exploring a number of other potential sales opportunities.”

Waterhouse continued, “We are currently exploring options to refinance current debt given our facilities expire in early/mid 2020. These efforts are expected to result in new or extended facilities. And finally, we continue to be diligent in our efforts to maintain appropriate operational expense levels.”
