(AITB), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
AIT Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage medical device and biopharmaceutical company based in Garden City, New York. The Company focuses on developing inhaled Nitric Oxide (NO) for the treatment of patients with respiratory conditions. These include serious lung infections and pulmonary hypertension. AIT Therapeutics also has an office in Ness Ziona, Israel. The Company lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.
AIT’s technology originated at the University of British Columbia, Department of Infectious Disease in Vancouver. In 2011, Advanced Inhalation Therapies (AIT) was established and the Company developed a proprietary technology to safely deliver Nitric Oxide (NO) gas to patients with bronchiolitis and cystic fibrosis. In 2017, AIT Therapeutics became a publicly traded company.
At present, AIT Therapeutics is applying its therapeutic expertise to treat lower respiratory tract infections not effectively addressed with present standards of care, and also pulmonary hypertension, in different settings. The Company is now advancing its pioneering NO Generator and Delivery System in clinical trials for the treatment of bronchiolitis and severe lung infections including nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM).
AIT Therapeutics’ propriety generator and delivery system generates NO from room air. This eliminates the need for costly and cumbersome cylinders. The Company’s system allows for numerous significant advantages over approved NO cylinder based systems now used in hospitals worldwide and may allow for use in the home setting.
AIT has conducted greater than 2,100 treatments in more than 85 patients across 7 studies at “high” NO concentrations. There are no serious adverse events related to NO therapy. NO is recognized as an important molecule involved in numerous physiological and pathological processes. NO is naturally produced by the body’s immune system to provide a first line of defense against invading pathogens. NO is a powerful molecule and has a short half-life of a few seconds in the blood. This enables it to be cleared quickly from the body.
In late July of this year, AIT Therapeutics announced that it started commercial development for its ventilator compatible NO generator and delivery system with Sparton Corporation. AIT and Sparton expect to complete the process in about 6 months. AIT will make a 510(k) submission to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) soon thereafter.

International Frontier Resources Corporation (IFRTF)
Connecting Investor, YCharts, Wallet Investor, GuruFocus, 4-Traders, MarketWatch, Stockhouse, Marketwired, Otc.Watch, Investment Pitch, Investors Hub, Investing News, Market Screener, and Emerging Growth reported earlier on International Frontier Resources Corporation (IFRTF), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
International Frontier Resources Corporation has a demonstrated track record of advancing oil and gas projects. The OTCQB-listed Company, by way of its Mexican subsidiary, Petro Frontera S.A.P.I de CV and strategic joint ventures (JVs) is advancing the development of petroleum and natural gas assets in Mexico. International Frontier Resources is based in Calgary, Alberta.
International Frontier Resources (IFR) also has projects in the U.S. and Canada. This includes the State of Montana and the Northwest Territories. IFR created a JV company in 2015 - Tonalli Energia - together with Grupo Idesa, one of Mexico’s largest petrochemical companies. Grupo Idesa is a well-established Mexican petrochemical company.
Block 24 Tecolutla establishes IFR’s Mexican JV as one of the first operators’ in Mexico. In addition, it provides important insights into future rounds. Tecolutla is a very underdeveloped mature field with considerable upside potential. The Tecolutla Block is in the Tampico-Misantla Basin within the State of Veracruz.
The Tecolutla Field is 7.2 square kilometers. It contains an oil reservoir at 2,340 meters or around 7,700 feet. The Tecolutla Block is a 60-80 m gross pay carbonate reservoir on a structural high with proven oil production.
Tonalli has submitted the regulatory applications and documentation that will allow IFR to go ahead with the drilling permit and operations at Tecolutla. The expectation is that the existing wells at Tecolutla will exceed historic production numbers and peak initial production (IP) rates with the arrival of new recovering techniques, technology, and expertise to be undertaken by Tonalli.
This past November, International Frontier Resources Corporation (IFR) announced that Tonalli Energia, IFR’s JV with Mexican petrochemical leader Grupo IDESA, spudded the first conventional horizontal well, (TEC-11), at its onshore Tecolutla block. TEC-11 is the initial horizontal well in a potential multi-well plan to develop the northern extension of the Tecolutla field that has been identified on Tonalli’s interpretation of the 3D seismic.
Moreover, in December, IFR announced that Tonalli Energia reached total depth at its first conventional horizontal well, (TEC-11), on its onshore Tecolutla block. The TEC-11 field development horizontal well was drilled to a depth of 3283 meters (m) Measured Depth (MD). A total of roughly 670m of measured length of Cretaceous limestone was drilled before the total depth was reached. Oil shows were encountered during drilling.
Furthermore, Tonalli received its first payment from PEMEX for oil shipped from its Tecolutla field. Tonalli’s TEC-10 producing well averaged 156 barrels of oil per day in October and November at an approximate average crude sales price of USD$64.73 per barrel.
International Frontier Resources Corporation (IFRTF), closed Tuesday's trading session at $0.08, even for the day, on 9,500 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 20,377 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.059/$0.2865.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQX: LXRP) (CSE: LXX) ( "Lexaria Bioscience"), a drug delivery platform innovator, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary Lexaria Nicotine LLC ("Lexaria Nicotine") and Altria Ventures Inc., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Altria Group, Inc. (NYSE:MO) ("Altria"), have executed definitive agreements to pursue innovation in oral, reduced risk nicotine consumer products using Lexaria's patented DehydraTECH(TM) technology. Lexaria's DehydraTECH(TM) technology enhances the performance of beneficial compounds in ingestible products across four categories: taste & smell, speed of action, bio-absorption and bioavailability.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. Though boasting a wide range of health benefits, cannabinoids are traditionally poorly absorbed by the body’s gastrointestinal tract. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering hemp oil ingredients – or through locally licensed partners, cannabis oil ingredients – through a patented process within food products.
The key differentiator between Lexaria’s products and others on the market is the company’s disruptive technology proven to enhance the absorption of orally ingested cannabinoids while improving the “unusual” taste of cannabinoids and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the USA, and internationally. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within lipids in popular foods. These brands include ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, and TurboCBD™.
In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent, third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company’s technological process and lipid formulation both improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Additional follow-up studies in human volunteers suggested that Lexaria’s processed, lipid-infused tea may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation with results indicating as much as a 1,000% increase in overall absorption.
Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government’s National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria’s unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D are expected to support accelerating B2B relationships – not just in the cannabis industry, but also to support new B2B business relationships in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs, and nicotine delivery. All of these sectors expected to offer additional future growth potential.
Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong intellectual property portfolio that utilizes the most commonly used food processing techniques. As of 2017, the company’s patent portfolio includes 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world. The most recent patent applications expand Lexaria’s lipophilic food and beverage composition claims to include the processing of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine in many of the world’s most commonly used food processing ingredients. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the USA and internationally in 2017 and 2018.
Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third party partners, and has several deals signed and/or pending. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $50 million in working capital for the companies he has led over the course of his career. He is supported by a team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP), closed the day's trading session at $1.415, up 12.30%, on 846,099 volume with 766 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 175,501 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.75/$2.43.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST)
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than two million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were reported in the United States in 2016. The majority (1.6 million) were newly-diagnosed cases of chlamydia. Young women make up nearly half of all diagnosed chlamydia cases. The CDC recommends that STD screening and timely treatment become a standard part of medical care (http://nnw.fm/CK2qo). Earth Science Tech, Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) is strategically positioning Hygee, a non-invasive discreet chlamydia testing kit, as the answer to this global epidemic.
Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST) is an innovative biotechnology company operating in the fields of hemp cannabinoid (CBD), nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and medical device research and development. Earth Science Tech offers the highest purity and quality, full-spectrum, high-grade hemp CBD (cannabidiol) oil on the market. Made using the supercritical CO2 liquid extraction process, the company’s CBD oil is 100 percent natural and organic. Earth Science Tech has partnered with the University of Central Oklahoma and DV Biologics Laboratory to conduct research and development projects that scientifically support and advance the healthcare benefits of its high-grade hemp CBD oil.
Earth Science Tech Inc. currently has three wholly owned subsidiaries focused on developing its role as a world leader in the CBD space and expanding its work in the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors. These subsidiaries include:
- Earth Science Pharma, Inc., which is committed to development of low cost, noninvasive diagnostic tools, medical devices, testing processes and vaccines for sexually transmitted infections and/or diseases. Earth Science Pharmaceutical CEO and chief science officer Michel Aubé is leading the company’s research and development efforts. The company’s first medical device, MSN-2, is a home kit designed for the detection of STIs, such as chlamydia, from a self-obtained gynecological specimen. Earth Science Pharma is working to develop and bring to market medical devices and vaccines that meet the specific needs of women.
- Cannabis Therapeutics, Inc. (“CTI”), which is poised to take a leadership role in the development of new, leading-edge, cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. CTI is invested in research and development to explore and harness the medicinal power of cannabidiol. The company holds a provisional application patent for a CBD product that is focused on developing treatments for breast and ovarian cancers.
- KannaBidioiD (“KBD”) provides a wide variety of products geared toward the recreational space of cannabis. KBD’s unique Kanna and CBD formulation is sold and distributed in CBD-infused edibles and vapes/e-liquids products. Kanna and CBD synergistically enhance one another, providing optimal relaxation, an uplifting sensation, enhanced focus and the added benefit of assisting with nicotine reduction therapy.
Earth Science Tech celebrated a significant, developmental year during 2017 by sharing its achievements in a condensed end-of-year report. Among the report’s highlights are the implementation of a development plan for the coming three years, which includes expanding into Canada and opening new manufacturing and shipping facilities. Of particular interest is the acquisition of Canna Inno Laboratories Inc., a company headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which gives Earth Science Tech access to Canadian government grants offered to innovators in the pharmaceutical industry. ETST has also launched development of proprietary prophylactic therapies utilizing cannabidiol (CBD) to treat various forms of breast cancer.
In October 2017, ETST announced it is cooperating with the Clinique SIDA Amité (AIDS Friendship Clinic) for a mini-clinical trial, the last trial needed before the MSN-2 device, designed for the detection of STIs, enters molecular diagnostic trials. And in November 2017, the company began pre-launch human trials on a new CBD formula to fight against the U.S. opioid epidemic. The new formula, expected to decrease cravings and the negative effects of withdrawal in addicts, is based on industrial hemp CBD mixed with a known natural ingredient proven to help increase dopamine levels. ETST’s medical devices will first be launched in Vietnam, Djibouti and Morocco while the company awaits regulatory permission to enter the North American market.
The company expects to up-list to the OTCQB in early 2018, which management believes will attract well-funded institutional investors and pave the way to becoming the next billion-dollar-in-capitalization company on the OTC markets. Other highlights include completion of the company’s Scientific Advisory Council with a team of recognized scientists, the launching of several CBD-infused edible products and entry into the medical devices market through collaborative partnerships.
Earth Science Tech has signed a collaborate agreement with Laboratories BNK Canada, a private laboratory that will conduct the clinical studies necessary for MSN-2 medical device-related services to meet regulatory requirements. ETST has confirmed the MSN-2 device’s ability to detect chlamydia, and is working to validate similar results for gonorrhea, both highly infectious diseases that often have permanent consequences for patients. ETST will also add testing for trichomoniasis and a complete body fluid panel to detect the different serotypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cervical cancer. These additions will help the company create sales opportunities in the global market for diagnostic testing of STDs that Transparency Market Research has indicated will grow to $108 billion by 2019.
Cannabis Therapeutics is in the development stage of two cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products targeting a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease, among others. Research into the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecules found in the cannabis plant is supported by ETST’s International Application for Provisional Patent titled “Cannabidiol Compositions Including Mixtures and Uses Thereof,” which was filed on October 8, 2015. Cannabis Thera’s R&D efforts are concentrated on developing CBD-based drugs and nutraceutical products and in working to integrate the CBD molecule with existing generic drug molecules to create more efficient medications with fewer and less severe side effects. A report in Hemp Business Journal predicts the CBD consumer market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, while other industry experts expect an increase to almost $3 billion by 2021. A recent report by Statista projects the U.S. consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals could reach $50 billion by the year 2029.
The management team at Earth Science Tech brings decades of invaluable experience to the nutraceutical, dietary supplement field as well as the life sciences sectors. Nickolas S. Tabraue, who serves as the president, director and chief operating officer, is an industry veteran with extensive knowledge of supplements, retail management, customer service and sales expertise. He is joined by CEO and CSO Dr. Michel Aubé, a microbiologist whose scientific research in sexually transmitted infections, cancer and stem cell biology has been widely published in several prestigious medical journals.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF)
The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF) (FRA: 53S1) makes progress seem so easy. After a string of recent successes that include completion of 19 flowering rooms, clinching a deal with Khalifa Kush Enterprises and copping the 2018 Cannabis Brand of the Year Award, the company has received conditional approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") to graduate from the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") and list its common shares on the TSX (http://nnw.fm/a6PbE).
Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF), is committed to providing premium brands and products that reflect the company’s knowledgeable customers, passionate employees, and culture of innovation. Supreme Cannabis’ mission is to grow the world’s best cannabis and become a leader in the global industry. The company calls its Toronto Venture Exchange stock symbol FIRE “a testament to our passion for cannabis and our obsession with quality.”
Supreme Cannabis believes the world is ready to follow Canada’s lead by ending the 100-year cannabis prohibition and, as Canada’s only coast-to-coast premium cannabis producer, the company sees itself at the center of this global shift.
In August 2018, Supreme Cannabis uplisted its shares to the to OTCQX market in the U.S., where the company trades under the ticker symbol SPRWF. The following month Supreme reported record Q4 revenues of CAD$3.55 million, a 71-percent increase over the previous quarter. Supreme Cannabis also recorded revenue of CAD$8.85 million for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, placing it among publicly traded Canadian cannabis companies with the highest reported revenue in their first four quarters of sales.
“As a result of the successful execution of our strategy, we have generated significant revenue growth both for the quarter and the year-end period,” Supreme Cannabis CEO Navdeep Dhaliwal stated in a news release. “We look forward to building on this growth as we expand domestically and internationally.”
The company’s growth strategy includes key industry agreements, such as its CAD$12 million supply agreement with Tilray Inc. (OTC: TLRY), a global leader in cannabis research, cultivation, processing and distribution. The agreement calls for Supreme to supply Tilray with dried cannabis for support of medical cannabis patients in Canada for the period of one year.
Another key component is the company’s wholly owned 7ACRES subsidiary. The 7ACRES cultivation facility, one of the first 40 federally licensed cannabis producers in Canada, is focused on building a core competency in scaled cannabis production, which will give 7ACRES the needed flexibility to maintain leadership in the industry as the Canadian market grows and matures. Though 7ACRES is Supreme Cannabis’ flagship brand and only currently operating business unit, the company will continue to identify new opportunities to grow its portfolio of companies and build innovative cannabis businesses throughout the world.
7ACRES operates from a 342,000-square-foot cultivation facility in Kincardine, Ontario, and has been federally licensed since 2016. Current capacity is 13,333 kilograms dried cannabis annually, with plans to ramp up production by mid-2019 to a rate of 50,000 kilograms per year.
Supreme Cannabis seeks to differentiate 7ACRES from other licensed cannabis producers by producing premium quality product sustainably at scale. “Craft quality, commercial scale” is a slogan the company uses, and the Kincardine greenhouse employs state-of-the-art technology and cultivation best practices to strive toward that goal. Supreme identifies the quality of the 7ACRES product as the company’s primary strength and says a shared “passion for the plant” is the driver of company culture. Six Canadian provinces have signed supply agreements with Supreme, a fact the company credits to the high quality of 7ACRES cannabis.
Its customers, Supreme Cannabis management says, are informed and discerning regarding cannabis, and they value a premium brand that respects their product knowledge. The company believes its high regard for customers, premium product quality, and mass cultivation capability has allowed Supreme Cannabis to emerge as Canada’s preeminent premium cannabis producer. In the Canadian cannabis market, the company has established 7ACRES as a premium brand that’s distributed coast-to-coast and commands premium pricing. The 7ACRES brand is already listed as premium cannabis product in all provinces that disclose their cannabis listing categories, and 7ACRES on average wholesales for up to one-third higher in price than other brands in the Canadian cannabis market.
To further its distribution, in the medical cannabis market Supreme Cannabis has partnered with several Canadian cannabis retailers including Aurora Cannabis, Emerald Health Botanicals, Namaste, Zenabis, and others. The company’s investment portfolio also includes an equity position and long-term global distribution partnership with Medigrow, based in Lesotho, targeting the export of medical cannabis oil for the international market.
Supreme Cannabis seeks to make the company an innovator in the cannabis sector regarding design of cultivation facilities and development of operation excellence metrics. The management team is confident that the 7ACRES flagship brand, the company’s proprietary technology and products, and the company’s culture of passion for cannabis will deliver consistent long-term shareholder value.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF)
First Cobalt (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF) (ASX: FCC) is working toward creating a North American cobalt supply chain to meet mounting demand for the metal as human rights concerns and profiteering politics are continuously problematic for cobalt produced in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/xk5eW.
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, is the largest land owner in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario with control of over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and 50 historic cobalt/silver mines. The company’s assets include a mill and the only permitted cobalt extraction refinery in North America capable of producing battery material, providing an integrated solution for cobalt projects. First Cobalt began drilling in the historic Cobalt Camp in 2017 and seeks to build shareholder value through new discovery and growth opportunities.
First Cobalt’s 2018 $C7 million drilling program, which includes testing different styles of mineralized areas throughout the Cobalt Camp in more than 10 past-producing mines known to contain cobalt, is a significant expansion over its 2017 exploration activities. The company received positive test drill results from the Bellellen mine location, with early results confirming the presence of high-grade cobalt and nickel, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site. A prospecting sampling program of existing muckpiles around the camp’s historic mines, trenches, pits and surrounding bedrock could provide an early production scenario.
First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world’s current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.
First Cobalt is embracing innovation in the mining sector, utilizing a digital compilation of 100-plus years of mining and geological data spanning the historically prolific Cobalt Mining Camp’s lifespan. First Cobalt’s management team is also assessing the ability of artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery cycle. As a member of the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) and Metal Earth Project, First Cobalt conducts regional geophysical surveys for geological interpretation of structures controlling cobalt-silver mineralization.
The company’s clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.
First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.
First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.124625, off by 4.13%, on 136,035 volume with 37 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 177,743 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1143/$1.10.

DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: DPW), is a diverse holding company pursuing a growth strategy of acquiring undervalued assets with disruptive technologies with a global impact.
The company invests in diverse industries within the commercial, defense/aerospace, industrial, communication, medical, crypto-mining, hospitality, textile, and corporate investment/lending sectors. DPW has evolved and grown from being a leader in advanced power products. Through its subsidiaries, the company continues to be a leader and supplier of innovative technologies, advanced design and development services, and state-of-the-art power products and solutions.
Through its wholly owned Coolisys Technologies, Inc. subsidiary, DPW is committed to offering world-class technology-based solutions for critical applications and lifesaving services that are primarily driven by innovation. Coolisys targets to the defense, aerospace, naval, homeland security, medical, telecom, datacom and industrial markets. Its growth strategy centers on core markets that are characterized by “high barriers to entry” and require specialized products and services not likely to be commoditized. Through a portfolio of companies, Coolisys is engaged in developing and manufacturing advanced switching power products and power solutions that utilize a customized digital power management and resonant topology to attain:
- The highest efficiency and highest density power converters and inverters
- Specialized complex airborne high-frequency, radio frequency (RF), and microwave detector-log video amplifiers (DLVA)
- Very high-frequency filters
- Naval power conversion and distribution equipment
Coolisys offers its technology and services through three primary groups: the Power Solutions Group (PSG), the Defense and Aerospace Solutions Group (DSG), and the Advanced Service Industries (ASI) Group. Coolisys manages five divisions:
- Digital Power Corporation, a leader in providing power electronics technology that is based in northern California.
- Digital Power Limited dba Gresham Power Ltd, a designer and manufacturer of power distribution systems primarily for Naval use that is based in Salisbury, UK.
- Microphase Corporation, a designer and manufacturer of microwave electronics technology that is based in Shelton, Connecticut.
- Power-Plus Technical Distributors, a value-added distributor that is based in Sonora, California.
- Enertec Systems, a developer and manufacturer of specialized advanced electronic systems for the defense and aerospace sectors that is based in Karmiel, Israel.
DPW’s portfolio of wholly owned subsidiaries also includes Digital Power Lending, LLC (DPL), a California private lending company operating under Financial Lender’s License ##60DBO-77905. DPL is dedicated to strategically providing capital to small and middle-size businesses for an equity interest in addition to loan fees and interest. DPL provides secured and unsecured debt financing for public and private companies. These loans will typically have a six to 12-month maturity and range from $250,000-$5 million. DPL is active in bridge loans, receivable financing, inter company loans and micro loans. DPL will work with a network of company owned ATMs (terminals) in California, which will help utilize its CA Finance Lending License and enable the company to offer micro loans of up to $500 or less.
Management has over 50 years of Wall Street experience of investing in, and building companies. DPL’s desire is to bring world-class companies lending opportunities while allowing main street investors to participate. Deal flow and organization comes from an extensive network of investment bankers, business brokers, family offices, and institutional clients enabling DPL to engage and fund the most compelling companies from Silicon Valley to Wall Street.
To date, DPL has funded over $19 million in loans. Since inception, DPL has internally funded over $15 million to DPW’s portfolio companies and wholly owned subsidiaries. As for companies outside DPW, DPL has lent over $4 million in commercial and real estate loans.

Another subsidiary wholly owned by DPW is Super Crypto Mining, Inc., a cloud computing service that provides shared and managed computing resources optimized for various block chain mining solutions. Based in Newport Beach, California, Super Crypto Mining leverages its engineering expertise and existing locations to create cryptocurrency mining facilities throughout the world. The company owns and maintains the computing resources and sells access to their use. The established mining is on the Top 3 crypto-currencies with the goal of having 10,000 miners deployed in 2018. Super Crypto Mining endeavors to leverage its engineering expertise and existing global facilities (high-security defense business locations) to secure mining farms. Super Crypto Mining is a rapidly growing organization that recently strategically secured 25 mega watts to power the company’s mining farm. For crypto currency mining, locations with inexpensive power and secure capacity are minimal and hence costly. Having such a location allows the company to grow its mining business to more than 20,000 mining machines. Super Crypto Mining continues to purchase mining machines and explore opportunities to expand its services into other related areas including mining farm real estate investments, mining machine development, and mainstream blockchain projects.
DPW additionally has beneficiary ownership in MTIX International, Inc., the parent company of MTIX, Ltd. and I.AM, Inc.
MTIX was acquired by Avalanche International aka MTIX International, Inc., in August 2017 and offers “green technology” that uses a proprietary laser process to enhance the surface of textiles. This process reduces water usage by approximately 75 percent, reduces greenhouse gases by approximately 90 percent, and reduces chemical use by approximately 95 percent.
I.AM, acquired in May 2018, owns and operates hospitality offerings that include four Prep Kitchen brand restaurants and Giulia DTLA.
Utilizing a shareholder-centric approach to compensation, DPW has formulated the following 10-year objectives:
- Achieve compounded annual revenue growth of 25-35%
- Achieve compounded annual net Income growth of 5%
- Achieve positive unrestricted free cash flow by the end of 2019
DPW is led by a seasoned team of successful business professionals and entrepreneurs. The company is headquartered in Newport Beach, California.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING)
SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING), a diversified holding company specializing in the acquisition of small- to mid-sized companies (with an emphasis on new technologies), urges investors to “not sleep on SinglePoint” in 2019 as it looks ahead at a potentially impressive year filled with expansion and revenue growth.
SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) is a diversified holding company with operations in multiple industries and verticals including two high-performing market sectors: legal cannabis and cryptocurrencies. SinglePoint has grown from a full-service mobile technology provider to a recognizable brand with a diverse portfolio of undervalued subsidiaries with multiple revenue streams.
SinglePoint is researching opportunities where it can be an active participant by influencing the strategy and direction of high-potential companies whose verified assets offer attractive possibilities for shareholders. The company is guided by a visionary leadership team with extensive experience in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital.
SinglePoint is bullish on the cannabis industry, bitcoin and blockchain technologies, which is evident in its recent acquisitions and joint-venture announcements. Recent SinglePoint key highlights include:
- A joint venture with Smart Cannabis Corporation (OTC: SCNA) to license and market Smart Cannabis’ SMART APP. SMART APP enables cannabis growers to measure all aspects of cultivation, from soil nutrient levels to watering cycles and carbon dioxide content in the air. SMART APP will integrate SinglePoint’s bitcoin payment solution to enable growers to process safer and more secure transactions.
- A joint venture with Global Payout (OTC: GOHE) will build on existing financial technology solutions developed by SinglePoint and Global Payout’s subsidiary MoneyTrac Technology, Inc., to fully optimize the delivery of mobile payment applications for domestic and international organizations.
- A joint venture with AppSwarm (OTC: SWRM) to start development on a proprietary delivery application that will enable licensed cannabis delivery services and licensed dispensaries to safely make in-home cannabis deliveries.
- Signed original “Shark Tank” member Kevin Harrington as company spokesman for an innovative, compatible virtual wallet to store any type of cryptocurrency. Harrington recently finished shooting a new national ad campaign featuring SinglePoint and the virtual wallet’s secure method of storing cryptocurrencies.
- Entered into a letter of intent to acquire 100 percent of Bitcoin Beyond, a premier platform that enables merchants to accept bitcoin payments using existing web-enabled point-of-sale devices.
- Through SING subsidiary, SingleSeed, the company will soon offer a proprietary cryptocurrency solution that links both cannabis merchants and consumers who seek to take advantage of bitcoin-powered transactions using debit and credit cards. In addition to making bitcoin-backed card purchases possible, the solution enables cannabis dispensaries to digitally track and manage their product inventories, performing tasks like uploading product data, photos and descriptions. The system deducts items automatically from a dispensary’s product listings when a purchase is made. While this fully KYC-AML compliant point-of-sale platform can be utilized for any other retail setting, it will fill a critical need in the underbanked cannabis industry as it continues to seek non-cash payment solutions outside of traditional banking circles.
SinglePoint CEO and founder Greg Lambrecht leads the company in its mission to capture opportunities through an aggressive expansion strategy across a broad range of assets. Lambrecht oversees all company operations including investor relations, leadership of the board of directors, and daily business activities. As the founder of PCI, a leading consumer product distribution company, Lambrecht negotiated agreements with the nation’s largest retail outlets and led PCI through a NASDAQ listed IPO, raising $10 million.
Eric Lofdahl, SinglePoint’s chief technology officer, has more than 20 years of experience in the technology sector including positions in software development, program management, complex system integration and engineering process definition. Prior to SinglePoint, Lofdahl worked at the Boeing Company where he led a team that successfully developed advanced wireless and satellite data products based on commercial technology for the U.S. Air Force.
SinglePoint President Wil Ralston is well known for his successful track record of building and maintaining great relationships with clients. Ralston graduated cum laude from the WP Carey School of Business at Arizona State University with a degree in Global Agribusiness and a specialization in Professional Golf Management. He is currently recognized by the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) as a Class A Professional.
SinglePoint, Inc. (SING), closed the day's trading session at $0.01829, off by 1.14%, on 5,624,029 volume with 193 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 6,361,607 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0106/$0.092.
