World News: . []

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Aug. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- . (OTCQB: ), a technology solutions company that markets invisible ink identifiers and serialization for authenticating, tracking and tracing functions for labels, packaging and products, announced the company's financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Mr. White concluded, “We believe our recent stock performance is not reflective of the business traction and success we are gaining in the market for our digital technology solutions that provide identifiers and serialization for authenticating, tracking and tracing functions for labels, packaging and products. We believe that we have the only serialization technology that cannot be removed or defaced.  That point is the true differentiator between our technology and all of the others in the market.  We are seeing major brand owners, like the multi-billion dollar consumer products company we just signed, demand a solution like ours to combat counterfeit goods because they have tried others and they have failed. Interest continues to grow and has never been higher. We believe the partnerships and contracts we have been signing are setting us up for growth in the latter part of 2019, 2020 and beyond.  We do not believe the recent decline in our share price has anything to do with our business performance and is instead influenced by certain shareholders that are associated with each other who have sold large blocks of our shares at undervalued stock prices.  The relationships that VerifyMe has forged with its strategic partners such as HP Indigo, Micro Focus, S-One LP and INX International reflects the strength of our technology and what we offer global Brand owners.  We look forward to continuing to communicate our business progress.”
