Nocopi Technologies, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: NNUP) today announced that revenues for the year ended December 31, 1998, were $2.4 million vs. $3 million for the previous year. The announcement was made by Jack H. Halperin, the Company's interim Chairman of the Board. Mr. Halperin replaced Richard A. Check who resigned in early 1999. The loss per shares was $0.02 compared to a loss of $0.05 per share in 1997. The Company has approximately 33.5 million shares outstanding.

"We are disappointed with the 1998 results," said Mr. Halperin. "We are considering various strategic and business alternatives.

There is no assurance that any transaction will be consummated." Nocopi Technologies, Inc., based in West Conshohocken, PA, is a publicly traded company.
