Net sales during 2019 increased 10.2% to $8,258,000 from $7,495,000 in the prior year.  The increase was due primarily to an increase in sales of our HazardPRO wireless hazard monitoring systems.  International markets provided approximately 12% of our 2019 net sales led by improved sales to Brazil.

"We are pleased to announce record annual revenue during 2019," said David L. Klenk, Electro-Sensors' president.  "Our growth during the year was largely driven by sales of HazardPRO wireless hazard monitoring systems, including several repeat and multi-system orders from existing customers."

Klenk continued, "While the COVID-19 outbreak will be an extraordinary challenge in 2020, Electro-Sensors continues to fully operate as we have been recognized as an essential supplier to companies serving the nation's food supply."

A full analysis of results for the year ended December 31, 2019 is available in the Company's Form 10-K, which is available on the Company's website at www.electro-sensors.com or through the Securities and Exchange Commission's Edgar database at www.sec.gov
