LightPath Secures Renewal Order of $3.4 Million, a 36% Increase from Initial Order

ORLANDO, FL / ACCESSWIRE / October 5, 2023 / LightPath Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:LPTH), ("LightPath" or the "Company"), a leading vertically integrated global manufacturer and integrator of proprietary optical and infrared technologies, announced that the Company has received a renewal order to provide advanced infrared optics for a critical international military program (or the "Program"). The Company has been awarded a follow-on order of $3.4 million which represents a 36% increase as the program demand grows from the initial order of $2.5 million announced in December.

LightPath's VP of Global Sales Mark Palvino commented, "We are delighted to see that our customer is happy enough to increase their order size for such a high-profile program. Meeting the intensive qualification standards as a supplier provides evidence of LightPath's ability to deliver value on some of the most complex and demanding needs by the US military."
