Nighthawk Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: NIHK), a leading provider of intelligent wireless power management and emergency notification solutions, today commented on recent sales activity at the Company and potential future applications for its products.
H. Douglas Saathoff, Nighthawk's CEO, commented, "I'm extremely pleased that we ended last year on a high note, and I'm very happy that we've continued that year over year growth trend into 2007. While we've continued to sell our core products to utilities and for rebooting applications, I'm particularly pleased that we've had recent sales to large companies like Verizon Wireless and DaimlerChrysler. The Nighthawk brand continues to grow, as we extend our reach through direct marketing and channel partners like American Messaging. We're doing a lot of work internally to develop software interfaces to our equipment which I believe will make it easier for our customers to use our products, and lead to larger sales volumes. Our goal is to be more than an equipment vendor for our customers -- we want to be their telemetry solutions partner."
Mr. Saathoff continued, "I believe that Nighthawk products will be important to green initiatives that are aimed at using less energy or improving the effect of energy production on the environment. Verizon Wireless is limiting the use of diesel generators to avoid polluting the environment, and DaimlerChrysler is controlling exhaust fans in order to regulate heat in their engine plant. I believe that the ability to easily and remotely control devices will play an increasingly important role in energy conservation as companies and consumers look to gain efficiencies in how they utilize available electricity supplies. Simply put, many devices today use power when they don't need to. In the near future, devices will need to be shut down on demand based on unpredictable external factors like weather and usage by others. Limited energy production resulting in variable, real time pricing from utilities may force consumers and utilities to make rapid decisions to turn off pool pumps, hot water heaters or air conditioners. If utilities can't supply enough power, the rate paid by customers for the available power will increase. Through existing relationships with utilities and continued product enhancement, we hope to position Nighthawk to be a leader in providing products for these applications as they develop. I believe we'll see the number and size of applications for our products continue to grow as the U.S. and the rest of the world seeks to become more efficient with available sources of electricity."
