"The world's largest airport spot company. I've used them at an airport while traveling, and I'm sure you have to s O. Let's get into what their business has been like and how they are dealing with the pandemic and what the future looks like. Doug sat minutes. CEO of Express spot Joining us on the phone in New York City. Doug Nice to have you here on Bloomberg. How are you? I'm great. Good morning. Think care for having a fun. Well, it's great to have you here. Tell me a little about what your world has been like. Take me back to march and what it's been like since then. So in March. We all know what happened across our community in communities around the world. Our core business has been airport spots where the largest global spot operator in airports And we were deemed a non essential use appropriately, So you know, by the end of March, closed all of our spots down globally. On then we haven't idea from our chairman Bruce Bernstein. Could we offer covert testing during this time and leverage the real estate we have in the spa, So we started a down and dirty project with a small group of people and then 75 days we went from idea to concept to pilot and got our first one open in June. In JFK Terminal four. And since then we've been continuing to roll out express check clinics, which the offer covert testing for airport employees to say agents and I. Anyone who works the airport as well as travelers on Bui have been expanding around the country. We're focusing domestically first, and then we can look broader. Right? So we're so what's your expectation? Moving forward? And as you continue to I'm assuming branched out out. I know there was a headline. Was it just yesterday or on Monday that you guys are going to start offering on site testing from select cities for non stop flights? I think this was for Hawaii specifically. But how do you continue to kind of embrace the environment? We are and kind of help your company as well as the airline industry kind of get back to normal. So what? What we're finding is it's the private companies that are leading the way trying to figure out the best path for, um safe travel and returning consumer confidence. So it's the airlines. It's testing companies like us and some health up, cos. Um, like the common past who we're partnering with to develop process to partner with the airlines and destination cities or states. On do connect travelers through getting tested and then being able to convey their negative results and satisfy giving out of quarantine requirements or other requirements to be admitted into you know a country or a state. Started with Hawaii, becoming one of their trusted testing partners. And then we've had a several recent announcements with United and with JetBlue and the Flying Airlines where we have partnerships now with the three airlines to partner with them on select cities. Often we're focusing on Hawaii right now. But we're looking to transatlantic destinations and and other destinations around the world. Um, so, in fact, with JetBlue as an example We are opening a second unit in Boston, where we already have one express check, but we're opening the second one in their terminal to help facilitate Boston is being a hub for them to help. Open up more travel to more destinations, and there's other airlines were speaking with as well. But this these are the groups that are feeling the way and then we're partnering with the airports to get either. Average existing real estate that we have from our spa business. But more often than not were being offered new spaces that are more more convenient for travelers. Like pre security. I have to say the investment space has written that this is kind of created a resurgence in reincarnation for you guys as a company, and I do wonder, you know, how does this kind of factor into future longer term strategy at this point? Resistance kind of a stopgap to get through. Ah, well, if it started as a stop gap to get through, you know our our business. Woz closed and this was a pivot that allowed us to serve the airport community with where we've worked. What's happened As we've learned through the medical side we are. We are developing a new concept that takes what we've learned from health and wellness. Our history what we've learned from medical And are developing it to launch next year, which will continue with things like testing. It'll run alongside express check it could run alongside express pas. But on a post covert world, things have definitely changed. And what travelers and employees are looking for our new services that aren't offered at airports and were uniquely positioned to deliver that with our experience operating in the environment and what we've learned now working with doctors in our medical side, right and my understanding is you guys doing testing for things like the regular flu and mono Oh, and offering flu vaccines to which is Which is pretty fat. Fascinating. How quickly just got about 20. Seconds here 25 seconds. How quickly though, do you You're not abandoning the spa business, or are you Way haven't abandoned spa business, But we're watching traffic to continue up and we've been successful in raising funds to help fuel future growth. Expansions. Um and tow. Have a very solid balance sheet for investors Toe. Stay in with us. Well, be fascinated. Check in with you throughout 2021 to see how it's all going, especially as you guys have pivoted dog. Doug Saxman. He.

If she wants to travel to Hawaii on Thursday on Thanksgiving as planned, she needs to know that she does not have the coronavirus. Otherwise she cannot land in Hawaii. They'll, you know, they'll basically tell her to turn around or they'll basically make her quarantined on the hotel. I mean, Yeah, I imagine. They got through the whole plane around for another. What is that? Five hours to why? You're so right. You could land you get right back on the next one. Right, Executive. See you later. But one word of caution here.
