Tampa, Florida--(Newsfile Corp. - March 4, 2021) - Umbra Applied Technologies Group, Inc (OTC Pink: UATG) announced today that it has purchased 20% of the Austin, Texas based medical company Next Casting Technologies. The global orthopedic casting, splinting, braces and support market was valued at US $4.6 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach US $7.9 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 6.4%. Next Casting Technologies has projected its first-year revenues to be $16.1M once it launches with a five-year evaluation in excess of $80M. UAT Group will deliver the $5M purchase price amortized over the next 24 months.

Chief Executive Officer, Alex Umbra commented, "Next Cast represents the tip of the spear in casting technology. What they have created is impressive and singular in the market. We initially partnered with NextCast on producing one of the components in their next generation cast which utilizes our industry leading antimicrobial technology Hygieia. After 2 years of collaborating on this unique project, it seemed only natural to have Next Cast become part of our family in a more definitive way. This addition to our suite of companies supports our commitment to building value within our subsidiary and strategic network".

Next Casting Technologies (NCT) founded in 2016, is a research and design-centric, biomedical technology company, with an expanding portfolio of intellectual property. The NCT team of experienced engineers, designers, certification experts and business professionals combine advanced design with paradigm shifting technology engineered to disrupt and transform the casting, bracing and splinting space.

The current SmartCast technology is ready for commercial production and introduction into the market, with advances in second generation models currently under development. The next generation SmartCast will feature an integrated microprocessor not just for simplifying and managing the cast curing time, but will also include the ability to detect swelling, and promote the fracture healing process with active bone growth stimulation. Their patent pending technology provides multiple pathways for product line expansion within the lucrative specialty casting and custom bracing markets.

The CEO and inventor of the NCT product line stated," We are currently in the final stages of initial commercial production and building domestic sales. As revenue increases, design and production work will continue to expand product offerings to include bracing, splinting and specialty casting, utilizing NCT's unique technology. Over the next 36 months, the NCT Board vision is to guide the company into an international brand. We are currently engaged with a national medical products and service provider to provide our product lines to their clients. I know I speak with everyone at Next Cast when I say we could not be more excited about our future with our new strategic partner UAT Group".
