The information in this Item 2.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K (including Exhibit 99.1) shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “ Exchange Act ”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

On January 30, 2019, the Company and the United States Navy entered into Contract No. N6449819D4009 (the “ Agreement ”) for a high temperature superconductor (“ HTS ”) based ship protection system to be deployed on the future USS Fort Lauderdale, LPD 28. The aggregate contract value of the Agreement is not to exceed $12.9 million, which amount includes the HTS-based degaussing system, installation, support, service and spares.

Under the terms of the Agreement, the Company has agreed to manufacture and deliver to the U.S. Navy the HTS-based degaussing system for integration into LPD 28.

Forward-Looking Statements
This Current Report contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “ Exchange Act ”). Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the Company’s expectations regarding the manufacture and installation of its HTS-based ship protection system in LPD 28; and other statements containing the words and other statements containing the words “believes,” “anticipates,” “plans,” “expects,” “will” and similar expressions. Such forward-looking statements represent management's current expectations and are inherently uncertain. There are a number of important factors that could materially impact the value of the Company's common stock or cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements. These important factors include, but are not limited to: the manufacture and installation of the Company’s HTS-based degaussing system in LPD-28 may not occur in the timeframe expected, or at all; the Company’s contracts with the U.S. government are subject to audit, modification or termination by the U.S. government and include certain other provisions in favor of the government, and additional funding of such contracts may not be approved by the U.S. Congress; and the important factors discussed under the caption “Risk Factors” in Part 1. Item 1A of our Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, and our other reports filed with the SEC. These important factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by forward-looking statements made herein and presented elsewhere by management from time to time. Any such forward-looking statements represent management's estimates as of the date of this Current Report. While we may elect to update such forward-looking statements at some point in the future, we disclaim any obligation to do so, even if subsequent events cause our views to change. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing our views as of any date subsequent to the date of this Current Report.
