"Development of the Innova biological filters has been underway for several years,
stimulated by the need for microbial protection among outdoorsmen and throughout the
world's developing nations," said John E. Nohren, Jr., Chairman and Founder of the
company. "We quietly introduced the filter more than two months ago at an outdoors
trade show in Utah."
"In the wake of recent volatility in Innova's stock price and trading volume, and
the growing public demand for safe, pure drinking water due to the anthrax scare,
management deemed it necessary to make immediate disclosure of the groundbreaking
breakthrough and our marketing and distribution plans," Nohren said.
Innova Pure Water, founded in 1985, is based in Clearwater, FL.
