Cyclone Power Technologies Will File Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and Releases Progress Letter to Shareholders

POMPANO BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Dec 19, 2014) - Cyclone Power Technologies (OTC PINK: CYPW) will file with the Securities and Exchange Commission its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2014, and has released the following progress report to its shareholders:

Dear Shareholders:

Warm greetings from South Florida! Through the third quarter of 2014, we have: (i) made substantial advancements in our core technology, (ii) successfully spun-off our subsidiary, WHE Generation Corp. ("WHE Gen"), and (iii) turned our focus to getting our first three base engines into production.

The Spin Off & Late Filing

The Spinoff of WHE Gen, which resulted in a gain of $2.4 million, was not as seamless as expected. The time frame for closing was pushed from Q2 to Q3. Current receipt of funding from the sale of $500,000 of Cyclone's WHE Gen stock has been reduced to $350,000. This caused a deficit of $150,000 from our prior projected funds and resulted in a related $150,000 receivable to be collected from the sale of 625,000 shares in Whe Gen. In addition, the accounting complications of the sale and the necessary financial information from Whe Gen were tardy making for an extremely late filing. Our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q will be filed with the Securities & Exchange Commission, and we urge our shareholders to review it. Notable changes during the period and additional forward looking information are highlighted below:

Revenue & Expenses 

Cyclone generated $315,527 of revenue during the nine month period ended September 30, 2014, which was less than the same period in 2013 of $715,387. Operating expenses for the same period in 2014 increased by 16% and higher funding related interest expense increased by 209%.

Management is continuing its efforts to channel resources on revenue-producing projects. With the royalty streams that are projected from the subsidiaries and licensees, and the finalization of the preproduction engines and components being delivered to our customers, we feel that our business model is finally coming to fruition.

Technology and Business Advancements

The Company has made considerable progress towards the overall marketability of our products. Cyclone started with the formation of a new Board of Directors with expertise in running public Companies, manufacturing, production and green energy. This provides management a broader base of assistance for the upcoming production phase for Cyclone. We have aligned ourselves with prime suppliers who are capable of producing our specialty parts for installation into our engines or for sale of component sub assemblies to other companies for system integration. The Company has signed numerous agreements with international engineering and consulting companies to represent us in broader markets and to their clients. Our focus is on revenue via sales of products and license and royalties.

We have not had the extra resources to devote to our Land Speed Record attempt, and therefore, have delayed it until 2015. Our Combilift project is in the final process of the 50 hour testing (Cyclone Mk V Combilift) and we are hopeful for a January 2015 delivery. Both the LSR streamliner and the Combilift equipment will utilize the Mark 5 model engine. This is a remarkable engine that we expect to have available for manufacturing in mid-2015.

Capital Markets and Funding

We have seen continued pressure on the public markets side for our Company's valuation. Admittedly, this is partly because our development has taken longer than previously anticipated and required additional funding, which is addressed above. It is also a result of certain promissory notes being converted to common stock and sold into the market over the last few quarters. Like many other micro-cap entities, Cyclone issued these convertible notes over the last year to fund a material portion of our operational and R&D shortfall. The Company is grateful to these funding groups, and understands that liquidating their positions at note maturity is a standard investment strategy for them. Additionally we had to increase our authorized common stock levels to accommodate the convertible contracts that obligate the Company.

As a long term shareholder, one should not correlate the common stock selling activities with the progress of our business model and the viability of our technology. We are now a viable company for the clean-tech and green-energy funding sources and we believe that our story is quite compelling:

  • Globally patented engine technology with potentially "game changing" attributes.
  • Worldwide markets with a current invested customer base that includes the U.S. Army and Department of Defense.
  • Focused path to commercialization for our initial engine products.
  • Experienced technical team, manufacturing experts, and new directors and management.
  • Current revenue with consistent sales forecasted to start in 2015.

Our shareholders and supporters must not overlook these strengths of Cyclone, as they truly separate us from the vast majority of "micro-cap" companies out there. We are energized by these accomplishments, and will continue to work diligently until we have yielded results for our shareholders. 

On behalf of the entire Cyclone team, thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Harry Schoell
Chairman

Frankie Fruge′
President
