ProtoKinetix, Incorporated (PKTX)

Street Insider, Equities.com, Small Cap Exclusive, Allstocks, Stockwatch, Investor Village, Research Pool, OTC PR Group, Trading View, 4-Traders, Cantech Letter, and Wallet Investor reported beforehand on ProtoKinetix, Incorporated (PKTX), and we highlight the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

OTCQB-listed, ProtoKinetix, Incorporated provides medical researchers with a platform for enhancing cell survival and health, in vitro and in vivo. It has developed and patented a family of hyper stable, potent glycopeptides (AAGP®), which enhance engraftment and protection of transplanted cells, organs, tissues and organs used in regenerative medicine. A molecular biotechnology company, ProtoKinetix is based in Marietta, Ohio.

At the heart of the Company’s technology is its patented anti-aging glycopeptide AAGP™. This small molecule (580 Daltons) displays abilities in resolving challenges facing medical researchers in areas such as regenerative medicine and as a therapy for diseases relating to tissue inflammation and oxidation stress. Because of its stability, small size, and molecular makeup, it maintains its function in vivo without triggering the body's immune system. Furthermore, it can function without toxic side effects common in treatments involving larger and less stable compounds.

ProtoKinetix is building value through the independent research of laboratories, university and private, into applications for its AAGP™ molecule. Regarding health solutions, there are two main categories that AAGP™ applications would be divided into. One is regenerative Medicine issues. This includes harvesting, processing, storage and transplanting cells, tissues and organs. The other is treatments for chronic inflammatory conditions and diseases caused by stress factors. This includes UV radiation, oxidation, as well as cryopreservation and hydrogen cyanide.

Because of the results realized over the last four-plus years of testing, the University of Alberta has started Phase 1 human clinical trials. Additional studies will be expanded to include whole organ transplantation and all therapies that are being developed internationally to date; diabetes, retinal degeneration, cardiac repair and numerous other degenerative conditions. Moreover, ProtoKinetix is studying the potential impact on a number of cancer therapies.

Last month, ProtoKinetix announced the completion of an in vivo study to assess the effect of AAGP® on the long term survival and functional activity of photoreceptor precursor cells (PPCs) in the animal ocular model of genetic retinal degeneration. The goal of the study was to ascertain the effect of 24-hour pre-treatment with anti-aging glycoprotein (AAGP®) PKX-001 at 4 mg/mL on the long-term (3, 4.5 and 6 months) survival and functional activity of PPCs) following their subretinal transplantation into the eye of nude immunocompromised rats with genetic retinal degeneration.

In vivo tests demonstrated that transplantation of PPCs pre-treated with AAGP® (PKX-001) results in statistically significant improvements in the visual behavioral (optokinetic tracking test) and functional analysis (electroretinogram test) responses versus PPCs without pre-treatment.

This month, ProtoKinetix announced that ITR Laboratories of Montreal, Quebec ran multiple tests on eye irritation at maximum concentration of AAGP® and to date have shown no sign of irritation. Based on this, ProtoKinetix is shipping AAGP® to EyeCRO to begin testing Dry Eye Disease efficacy.

The testing will involve topical application of AAGP® and evaluations of its effects on ocular inflammation. The program started early this month. The expectation is that it will run for 3-4 months. EyeCRO is a world recognized, specialized CRO in the field of pre-clinical ocular drug research and development.

The QualityStocks Company Corner

Sharing Services Global Corporation (SHRG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Sharing Services Global Corporation (SHRG).

Integrating operations and activities into a single platform and fighting health problems through research and education are two key trends for the direct-selling sector moving into a new year, according to a recent article (http://nnw.fm/9UgYf), titled ‘The Top 7 Direct-Selling Trends to Watch for in 2020’. Sharing Services Global Corporation (OTCQB: SHRG), a diversified holdings company in the direct-selling industry, is leading out in these areas, as well as others designed to continue the company’s incredible momentum created in 2019.

Sharing Services Global Corporation (SHRG), formerly Sharing Services Inc., is a diversified company dedicated to maximizing shareholder value, operating through two primary subsidiaries: Elepreneurs Holdings, a direct-selling company, and Elevacity Holdings, a products company. Headquartered in Plano, Texas, SHRG markets and distributes Elevate-branded health and wellness products through an independent sales force of distributors called Elepreneurs.

Proprietary Products

SHRG’s current exclusive Elevate product offerings are marketed under the Elevacity brand, so named to signify the company’s commitment to elevating lives.

The Elevate health and wellness product line consists of nutraceutical products that SHRG refers to as D.O.S.E., which stands for dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin and endorphins – all of which are key hormones proven to promote happiness and well-being.

Elevacity brand products are carefully formulated, chosen and designed to support a single objective: elevate the happiness and well-being of the consumer.

Global Network of Elepreneurs

Elevacity products are shared and sold by a growing international network of home-based entrepreneurs, called Elepreneurs, operated by Elepreneurs Holdings. This SHRG subsidiary provides basic and advanced programs for both new and experienced entrepreneurs who are focusing on their direct-sales careers.

SHRG’s high-performing independent sales force follows the company’s Blue Ocean selling strategy, an approach that encourages individuals to seek new markets, lead, and to “stop competing and start creating.” The Blue Ocean strategy is based on the book, “Blue Ocean Strategy,” written by Professor Renée Mauborgne, who notes that “the lesson here is that the best defense is offense, and the best offense… is to make a blue ocean shift and create your own blue ocean.”

Following this selling strategy, SHRG’s Elepreneurs are taught that, rather than competing directly in a competitive, direct-selling market, they should focus on making competitors irrelevant and succeeding in an uncontested marketplace.

In addition, SHRG’s Elepreneurs use the interactive, video-based VERB sales-marketing platform developed by Verb Technology Company Inc. The app utilizes proprietary interactive video data collection and analysis technology and provides next-generation customer relationship management, lead generation, and video marketing software applications.

Continued Momentum as Industry Leader

These selling strategies have resulted in sharp and consistent revenue gains. In the company’s 10-Q filed with the SEC for the three months ended Oct. 31, 2019, SHRG reported sales of $38.8 million for fiscal Q2 2019, an increase of 116% over sales of $17.9 million reported for the comparable quarter of 2018. Consolidated gross profit jumped by $16.2 million to $27.4 million for the same period compared to Q2 2018.

SHRG’s consolidated operating earnings were $3.9 million in the fiscal quarter ended Oct. 31, 2019, compared to $866,802 for the comparable period the prior year. Consolidated gross margin also grew 70.9% for the three months ended Oct. 31, 2019, compared to 62.2% the prior year.

These numbers are continuing a trend established over the past two years. In fiscal Q1 2019, SHRG achieved revenues of $35.4 million, more than double that of the comparable period in 2018. Even earlier, the company reported sales of $85.9 million for fiscal year ended April 30, 2019. This represents a nine-fold increase, or $77.5 million jump, over the company’s revenues of $8.4 million the prior year.

These numbers bring SHRG’s sales revenues since December 2017 — when the company’s Elevate product line was released — to an impressive cumulative total of $169 million.

Preparing for Success

SHRG is well prepared to continue and accommodate for this growth. The company recently expanded its corporate footprint by moving to a 10,000-square-foot facility in Plano, Texas, that offers ample room to expand as the company grows and flourish. The larger corporate locale provides space for a growing customer service department, product fulfillment, opportunity and training rooms, as well as a video production suite.

In addition, the company has a seasoned, expert leadership team in place, led by John “JT” Thatch. Thatch was appointed president and CEO of SHRG in March 2018, bringing to the company his expertise obtained from successfully starting, owning and operating several businesses in various industries. His experience with corporate growth, acquisitions, financing and negotiation in fast-paced and flexible environments will significantly assist SHRG as the company aims to expand and increase revenues.

InsuraGuest Inc.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight InsuraGuest Inc..

InsurTech company InsuraGuest Inc. announced the launch of InsuraGuest Insurance Agency LLC (IG Agency), its wholly owned subsidiary. IG Agency is registered and licensed to sell insurance in 16 states nationwide: Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Utah and Virginia. It brings licensed insurance sales in-house to create shareholder value and increase InsuraGuest revenues.

InsuraGuest Inc. is a SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) company utilizing its proprietary flagship InsurTech software platform to provide specialized insurance products to end users in the business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) markets. The company’s first focus is on the B2B hotels and vacation rentals sectors, where its API integrates with the clients’ property management systems to offer guests a specialized guest protection policy. The platform and policy combination “InsurTech” product helps transfer the exposure to liability away from the client/property while guests benefit from potential accident and loss coverage during their stay.

InsuraGuest’s platform is currently capable of integrating with approximately 70 different hotel and vacation rental property management systems, giving it access to roughly 40,000 properties worldwide.

The company continues to pursue expansion opportunities and recently signed a Letter of Intent with a master general agent in the United Kingdom and Europe to distribute its platform and products to hotel and vacation rental markets in those regions, as well as plans to expand to Asia in 2020.

Protecting Guests, Enhancing Customer Experience

InsuraGuest is the first line of defense for both the property and the guest.

InsuraGuest is purchased by the hotel or vacation rental “property,” which offers the policy to each registered guest and its occupants for an additional fee. The specialized policy affords coverage for theft of personal property while in the hotel, as well as accidental medical expense and accidental death and dismemberment, up to the policy limits of $2,500 to $50,000.

Market Opportunity

The U.S. hotel industry generated more than $218 billion in annual revenues in 2018, an increase of $10 billion from the previous year, according to STR’s 2019 HOST Almanac. The European market is more than double the size of the U.S. market. According to Oxford Economics, there were 6.4 billion nights stayed in the world, with 2.6 billion hotel nights in Asia, 2.8 billion nights stayed in Europe, and 1.1 billion nights in the United States. Additionally, $100 billion was spent on vacation rentals in the United State alone, where there are approximately 4.5 million second homes are being managed by a third-party rental company.

With distribution in Europe and the United States, InsuraGuest’s demographics combined will total 3.9 billion nights stayed, and will more than double its vacation rental opportunities.

Within this burgeoning, high-demand industry is risk of liability to guest injury. For example, gym injuries are among the top five most common hotel accidents. Without proper hedges in place, the property may be liable in a personal injury claim or lawsuit.

Though the potential for accidents, slip and falls and mishaps can be widespread, it can be covered under the InsuraGuest Specialized Guest Protection Policy to provide guests a worry-free and enjoyable stay that potentially increases loyalty for the property.

Business Highlights

  • Targeting hotels and vacation rentals, a multi-billion-dollar industry
  • Providing the first line of defense in case of accident, loss or death
  • Expanding distribution reach with footing in European hotel and vacation rental markets
  • Expansion into Asia by 2020

MCTC Holdings Inc. (OTC: MCTC)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight MCTC Holdings Inc. (MCTC).

Visionary cannabinoid science innovator MCTC Holdings Inc. (OTC: MCTC) is announcing a strategic effort to develop an efficient nanoparticle-based means of using the rare but potentially serviceable tetrahydrocannabivarin (THC-V) extract for purposes such as appetite suppression and obesity reduction. Also today, the company announced its entry into a distribution contract with Marijuana Company of America (OCTQB: MCOA) for MCTC's Hemp You Can Feel(TM) beverage product line. To view the full press release, visit http://cnw.fm/vhk1Y.

MCTC Holdings Inc. (OTC: MCTC) is an innovator in the field of cannabinoid nanoparticles and infusion technologies with several important cannabinoid patents filed and an active research and development program underway. The company was reorganized during June of 2019 and announced its intent to enter the cannabis sector and change its corporate identity to Cannabis Global Inc. The company is headquartered in Los Angeles, California.

With the hemp and cannabis industries rapidly expanding in terms of market size, acceptance and number of market participants, MCTC plans to concentrate its efforts on the middle portions of the hemp and cannabis value chain. The company is actively pursuing R&D programs and productization of advanced cannabinoid delivery systems, based on solid polymeric nanoparticles and fibers. These technologies hold the promise to revolutionize the science of cannabinoid bio-enhancement for use in foods, beverages, consumer products and in transdermal applications. Because of nanoparticles’ ability to be quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, nanotechnology has been utilized in the food and drug industry for some time and has the potential for tremendous growth in the cannabis industry (http://nnw.fm/v6RQ6).

Cutting-Edge Technology

MCTC is at the cutting-edge of the cannabis industry’s trends with its emphasis on polymeric nanotechnology. This is not to be confused with the more basic oil-in-water nano-emulsions currently marketed to the food and beverage industry. The company’s polymer-based particles offer significant loading of active ingredients and unmatched flexibility and customization, allowing for myriad combinations of cannabinoids with unique performance characteristics. MCTC believes polymeric nanotechnology particles will be a critical technology area for the cannabinoid formulation marketplace.

The company continues to build its R&D program, specifically researching the development of improving methods to make cannabinoids available to living systems. Instrumental in the research program is the development of novel polymeric nanoparticles and nanofibers. These have the potential to elevate the potential of cannabinoid products in the following ways (http://nnw.fm/cK3Bl):

  • Significantly improving bioavailability
  • Allowing for ultra-high loading rates
  • Enhancing customization of cannabinoid combinations
  • Improved dosing precision
  • Providing more control in release parameters

MCTC leadership understands the importance of developing intellectual property (IP) in the ever-evolving cannabis industry. A recent Forbes article described IP as “critical for creating true differentiation between companies and their product and service offerings” (http://nnw.fm/57Fjh). Recognizing the importance of IP, MCTC has been consistent in its application for patents to protect its innovative nanotechnology applications.

Patents

MCTC has now filed four patents on its cannabinoid delivery technology systems:

  • The company first collaborated with Cannabis Nanosciences Inc. on technologies. This became the basis for its first patent filing on an innovative edible dissolvable film for cannabinoid ingestion.
  • Its second patent filing for cannabinoid nanoparticles combined TPGS, a water-soluble form of vitamin E.
  • Its third patent filing involved a unique 4th dimension, 3D printed cannabinoid delivery system for beverages.
  • Its fourth patent, considered its most significant, broadly covers many aspects of nanoparticles and nano fibers comprising one or more cannabinoids disposed at least partially within a water-soluble medium.

Collaborations

MCTC collaborated with Marijuana Company Inc. (OTCQB: MCOA) subsidiary hempSmart Inc., under a hemp extract and CBD product supply agreement wherein hempSmart will utilize its extensive network of marketing partners to market MCTC’s powered drink mixes and other CBD edibles online. These products are designed for the dry beverage and edibles sector and will be supplied by MCTC. They incorporate the company’s patent-pending cannabinoid infusion technologies and will be trademarked as Hemp You Can Feel (TM) and Gummies You Can Feel (TM).

Leadership

MCTC CEO and chairman Arman Tabatabaei boasts 15 years of management and operations experience and is considered an expert at data collection and analysis relative to resource management, risk forecasting, and profit and loss management. He has acted as a consultant with Cannabis Strategic Ventures (OTCQB: NUGS) and played an instrumental role in improving operations at Sugarmade Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD) relative to the company’s hydroponic growth supplies initiatives.

MCTC founder and director Robert Hymers also brings a seasoned perspective, having had significant experiences in the cannabis industry and as a financial executive and consultant. He is the managing partner of Pinnacle Tax Services in Los Angeles and was previously CFO and director of Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOA). He is currently a member of the Strategic Advisory Board at Massroots Inc. and acts as a consultant to both Cannabis Strategic Ventures Inc. and Sugarmade Inc. Hymers’ background in tax accounting, auditing, SEC reporting, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate finance has immense value in his current position at MCTC Holdings.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight SinglePoint, Inc. (SING).

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) was featured today in a publication from HempWireNews, examining how hemp seeds are also referred to as hemp hearts, and people looking enrich their plant-based diet can use them. Hemp hearts are very nutritious as they have high fiber content, protein, omega fatty acids, antioxidants, and minerals. Because hemp seeds are composed of many nutrients, nutrition experts consider them to be a superfood.

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.

Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX).

Genprex (NASDAQ: GNPX), a clinical-stage gene therapy company utilizing a unique, nonviral proprietary platform designed to deliver tumor suppressor genes to cancer cells, today announced that the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Fast Track Designation for Genprex’s Oncoprex(TM) immunogene therapy in combination with EGFR inhibitor osimertinib (AstraZeneca’s Tagrisso(R)). Tagrisso(R), with worldwide sales of $1.86 billion in 2018 and $2.31 billion in the first 9 months of 2019, is currently AstraZeneca’s highest grossing product for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with EFGR mutations that progressed after treatment with osimertinib alone. To view the full press release, visit http://nnw.fm/o6nIh.

Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX) is a clinical-stage gene therapy company developing potentially life-changing technologies for cancer patients based upon a unique proprietary technology platform, including Genprex’s initial product candidate, Oncoprex™ immunogene therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Genprex’s platform technologies are designed to administer cancer-fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities.

Research and Development

Genprex holds a portfolio of 30 issued and two pending patents covering its technologies and targeted molecular therapies. The company’s research and development program is focused on identifying and developing leading-edge gene therapies that can be used alone or in combination with other therapies for treatment of cancer.

Genprex’s initial product candidate is Oncoprex™, an immunogene therapy for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Oncoprex works by interrupting cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells, re-establishes pathways for apoptosis (or programmed cell death) in cancer cells, and modulates the immune response against cancer cells. Oncoprex has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance.

Preclinical research is being conducted with the goal of developing Oncoprex to be administered with targeted therapies in other solid tumors, and with immunotherapies in NSCLC and other solid tumors. In addition, Genprex has conducted and plans to continue research into other tumor suppressor genes associated with chromosome 3p21.3, as well as other potential applications of the company’s immunogene therapy platform.

Clinical Trials

Genprex is currently conducting the second phase of a phase I/II clinical trial at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. The company plans to expand its clinical program by adding a new clinical study evaluating Oncoprex™ in combination with a checkpoint inhibitor for treatment of Stage IV or recurrent NSCLC. In research presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research in Washington, D.C., Genprex’s collaborators showed that TUSC2 in combination with PD-1 checkpoint inhibition has a significantly greater anti-tumor effect in lung cancer than either agent alone. The research also shows that TUSC2 in combination with PD-1 blockade has synergistic activity in upregulating natural killer (NK) cells, correlating with prolonged survival in mice.

TUSC2 (Tumor Suppressor Candidate 2) is a tumor suppressor gene that is absent or deficient in cancer cells of many different cancer types.

The Market

Genprex technologies seek to bridge a critical gap by combining with targeted therapies and immunotherapies to provide treatments to large patient populations who would otherwise not be candidates for those therapies or who have become resistant to them. Genprex technologies are being developed to overcome genomic limitations which are inherent in targeted therapies and immunotherapies in order to provide new treatment solutions to large cancer populations, such as those with lung cancer.

Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast and prostate cancers combined. NSCLC is the most common type of lung cancer, accounting for about 85 percent of all lung cancers, according to the American Cancer Society (“ACS”). Despite radical advances in drug development and novel therapeutic standards, survival for late stage lung cancer has not improved significantly in the past 25 years.

Senior Management

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer J. Rodney Varner, JD, is a co-founder of Genprex and has served in these roles since August 2012. He has more than 35 years of legal experience with large and small law firms and as outside general counsel of a Nasdaq-listed company. Varner has served as counsel in company formation, mergers and acquisitions, capital raising, other business transactions, protection of trade secrets and other intellectual property, real estate, and business litigation. He is a member of the State Bar of Texas and has been admitted to practice before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Court and the U.S. Tax Court.

Julien L. Pham, M.D., MPH, is president and chief operating officer of Genprex. In March 2013, Dr. Pham co-founded RubiconMD, a healthcare IT company that connects primary care providers to specialists for additional guidance and opinions on medical cases and served as its chief medical officer. He has served on the faculty at Harvard Medical School’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital and is a board-certified internal medicine doctor and nephrologist.

Ryan M. Confer, MS, has served as Genprex chief financial officer since September 2016. Confer has more than 10 years of executive experience in planning, launching, developing, and growing emerging technology companies and has served in the chief operating and chief financial roles for non-profit and for-profit entities since 2008. Confer has also served as an international business development consultant for the University of Texas at Austin’s IC2 Institute, where he focused on evaluating the commercialization potential of nascent technologies in domestic and international markets applicable to technology incubator programs associated with the University. Confer holds a BS in finance and legal studies from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and an MS in technology commercialization from the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin.

Jan Stevens, RN, is vice president of Clinical Operations. Stevens has nearly 20 years of comprehensive clinical operations experience in the biopharma industry and a specialization in early-to-late stage oncology companies. Stevens joined the company to help support the various clinical development programs for Oncoprex™.

Its industry leading alliance partners include Eaton, Ledcor Group and Hamilton Utilities Corp.

Eaton is the second largest power management company in the world and promises to supply innovative and cost effective power solutions to meet TGOD’s growing demands. Construction management is supplied by Ledcor, Canada’s second largest multidisciplinary construction company and a pioneer in the Green Building Industry. An alliance with Hamilton Utilities Corp allows TGOD to reduce its power costs from $0.13 per kWh to less than $0.05 per kWh. Greenhouse design is provided by Larssen Greenhouse, whose 25-plus years of experience in building some of the most modern and sophisticated greenhouses in the industry will provide TGOD with state of the art, climate-controlled hybrid greenhouse solutions.

Canada is quickly becoming a hub for cannabis investors with over $1.3 billion raised by Canadian companies to date. There are 58 licensed producers to service a population of 36 million and only two organic producers. TGOD, which holds licenses in Ontario and Quebec, is strategically located in both provinces that together claim 22 million Canadians as residents. Another estimated 57 million people live next door in six U.S. bordering states.

The Canadian cannabis market currently has a massive supply demand gap, which makes TGOD’s expansion plans even more important to investors. These plans include a combined build-out capacity of 970,000 square feet, allowing TGOD to produce 116,000 kg annually of organic cannabis. Upon completion, Phase One in Hamilton, Ontario, which is fully funded, will provide 150,000 square feet of growing capacity capable of producing up to 14,000 kg of cannabis or $112 million in revenue at $8 a gram.

The company’s Quebec expansion will be constructed on a recently secured 75-acre property near Montreal. This new property has a planned expansion of 820,000 square feet capable of producing 102,000 kg of organic cannabis. The first phase of this expansion is underway and construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Quebec’s first phase will consist of 220,000 square feet capable of producing 22,000 kg of cannabis. Two additional expansion phases will add 250,000 square feet (26,000 kg of cannabis) and 350,000 square feet (54,000 kg of cannabis). Power costs remain exceptionally low for both facilities with access to all other needed utilities available and close by.

TGOD also plans to gain a share of the burgeoning cannabis oils market which by Q1 2017 accounted for 49 percent of all cannabis sold in Canada under the ACMPR, up from only 27% in Q2 2016. TGOD has ordered a purpose-built extraction laboratory with an estimated commission in Q4 of 2017. This is a commercial-scale CO2 extraction unit capable of processing up to 12,000 kg of raw material per year and producing approximately $170 million worth of organic cannabis oils. Raw cannabis oil provides a significant downstream manufacturing opportunity into several potential recreational market verticals including edibles, beverages, topicals and concentrates.

Data from the Canadian ACMPR Market Trends report indicates a rising number of consumers will continue to seek out healthier, less conspicuous ways to consume cannabis, ensuring sales of organic cannabis oil products remain brisk. Organic cannabis products demand a significant premium compared to non-organic products and the demand keeps growing.

Plans to take the company public are underway with an initial public offering (IPO) slated for January 2018. In November, the company raised $13 million in equity financing and in March closed a $27 million non-brokered private placement. Another $20 million is currently being raised before the IPO in January, which will be utilized for expansion plans.

TGOD is uniquely positioned between the medical and recreational cannabis industry since Canada is scheduled to legalize cannabis for all adults in mid-2018. As of August 2017, TGOD has 2,400 shareholders. Established in 2012, TGOD’s motto, “Making Life Better,” can be seen in its strategic partnerships, top quality management team, and dedication to organic farming and principles.

Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc. (IGNG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc., the wholly owned subsidiary of Imaging3 Inc. (IGNG).

Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc. (IGNG) was featured today in a publication from CBDWire, examining how it’s hard to believe that as civilized as we are, and with all the advancements we’ve made, a silly little flu will curse you to a week of intense discomfort. While there are tons of over the counter medications designed to make the ordeal more bearable, you have to let the infection run its course. And more often than not, it’s an extremely sucky experience.

Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc., a California corporation (“Grapefruit”), as of May 31, 2019, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Imaging3 Inc. (OTC: IGNG), a Delaware corporation whose shares of $.001 par value common stock are publicly traded on the OTCMarkets OTCQB Market under the symbol “IGNG.” IGNG is subject to the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and files annual and quarterly reports pursuant thereto. Grapefruit holds licenses originally issued by the State of California in January 2018 to both manufacture and distribute cannabis products. Grapefruit’s management now owns a controlling interest in IGNG which now owns 100% of Grapefruit’s outstanding shares. As a result, IGNG’s financial reports will consolidate both IGNG’s and Grapefruit’s balance sheet, statement of operation and statement of cash flows and IGNG and Grapefruit will be operated as a single company. IGNG intends to change its name to Grapefruit and to obtain a more appropriate trading symbol as soon as possible. Hereinafter the combined companies will be referred to as “Grapefruit” or the “Company.”

Grapefruit’s corporate headquarters is in Westwood, Los Angeles, California. Grapefruit holds licenses to both manufacture and distribute cannabis products which were originally issued in January 2018 and is fully compliant with all applicable laws and regulations to operate its cannabis manufacturing and distribution businesses.

The company is well-focused on sourcing only the “best of the best” raw cannabis materials to create the highest quality, most-trusted and consistent recreational and medical cannabis products for its customers. Grapefruit is committed to ensuring class-leading quality by rigorously testing the purity and potency of its raw materials throughout the manufacturing process and distribution chain.

Grapefruit owns and operates its fully licensed and compliant ethanol extraction laboratory located in the Coachillin’ Industrial Cultivation and Ancillary Canna-Business Park in Desert Hot Springs, California. The company’s extraction lab produces high quality, cannabis-derived distillate, also known as “honey oil,” from cannabis flower and “trim.” THC honey oil is one of base cannabis commodities which serves as the active ingredient in everything from infused edibles and tinctures/creams to the cartridges used in vapes and e-cigarettes. Honey oil often sells on the wholesale marketplace for thousands of dollars per liter, with pricing being dependent on quantity purchased, as well as other market factors such as the availability and cost of the underlying flowers and/or trim.

Grapefruit began its extraction operations in May 2019. Plans are in place to expand its honey oil production through the purchase of additional distillation equipment, which is expected to significantly increase the company’s production capacity by the fourth quarter of 2019. Grapefruit’s extraction lab is fully scalable and expansion will be built-out on a two-acre lot owned by Grapefruit at the Coachillin’ site adjacent to its current manufacturing and distribution operation.

Grapefruit selected the City of Desert Hot Springs for its cannabis extraction laboratory, because the city has created a friendly business environment for cannabis-based manufacturers, including incentives like the absence of taxes on cannabis oil production revenues. This affords Grapefruit a fundamental competitive market advantage over other Honey Oil producers.

The California cannabis regulatory scheme is unique in that it requires all cultivators (cannabis farms) and manufacturers (whether producing oils/distillates, infused edibles, tinctures creams or other cannabis products) to sell their products into the legal cannabis wholesale and retail markets exclusively through licensed distributors such as Grapefruit. Grapefruit initially obtained its California recreational and medicinal cannabis distribution license Jan. 4, 2018. In May 2019, Grapefruit was granted its provisional distribution license which is renewable annually, thereby cementing the regulatory foundation necessary to rapidly expand its distribution business.

Grapefruit’s distribution license affords it a twofold strategic advantage: first, to market and sell its own cannabis product lines to retailers throughout California; and second, to buy and resell bulk cannabis flowers and trim as well as all other legal cannabis products to properly licensed distributors and/or retailers throughout California.

The Coachillin’ Canna-Business Park, home to Grapefruit’s current operating facilities and adjacent two-acre parcel of land, is a 160-acre, self-contained legally mapped compound providing the Company with a fully permitted and serviced physical plant from which Grapefruit intends to establish a leading position in the booming California cannabis sector. The parcel was purchased by the Company prior to the Park’s full development, and the value of the land the Company owns has conservatively since doubled in value to over $2 million. Additional long-term benefits of the Coachillin’ compound include agricultural rates for power, which are currently $0.09 per kilowatt hour; the Park’s deep-water well that fully satisfies its need for water; and security expenses shared by all resident businesses. The Coachillin’ Park’s promoters also plan to position the Park, located only 10 miles north of rapidly growing uptown Palm Springs and less than 15 miles from the site of the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals as a must-see canna-tourism destination.

Grapefruit’s ultimate goal is to become a vertically integrated, seed-to-sale cannabis and CBD product company serving the California market. Moreover, it plans to roll-out its product lines in other states, such as Nevada, Illinois, Oregon, Colorado and Washington. Grapefruit has plans to build a large, all-inclusive facility that will house a 50,000-square-foot-plus indoor grow canopy, a large extraction laboratory designed to extract both THC and CBD cannabinoids via non-volatile (ethanol) and volatile (butane) processes, a manufacturing space to produce Grapefruit’s vape lines and CBD products, an FDA-certified kitchen for the production of Grapefruit edibles and a distribution facility to sell all products into the entire cannabis market. The indoor grow canopy operation will be outfitted and operated to produce ultra-high-quality flowers and buds, some of which, along with the high-quality trim resulting from cleaning and maintaining the grow, will provide biomass necessary to feed the company’s extraction laboratory. Fueled by this hand cultivated biomass, Grapefruit’s lab will continuously produce pesticide and heavy metal-free world class honey oil to both serve as the active ingredient in all of Grapefruit’s branded and unbranded products and meet the projected ever-growing demand for high quality honey oil in the California market.

Grapefruit’s motto – A High You Can Trust – embodies its philosophy and ethos, reminding consumers of the company’s commitment to manufacturing, procuring and distributing only the highest quality all-natural cannabis flower, concentrates and related products that are free from pesticides, heavy metals and bacteria. Grapefruit will target its products to all recreational cannabis enthusiasts’ as continuous, consistent cannabis products. By relentlessly adhering to these policies Grapefruit intends to become the Titleist of the Cannabis industry, known for unwavering quality and consistency.

Grapefruit is managed by a team of experts possessing the experience, skill and resources required to succeed in the competitive cannabis marketplace. Founded by brothers Bradley Yourist, CEO, and Daniel Yourist, COO, Grapefruit has expanded to become a group of industry professionals sharing a passion for all things cannabis. Both the CEO & COO are attorneys licensed to practice law the State of California who possess expert cannabis licensing and regulatory expertise and experience, which will allow Grapefruit to deftly navigate the ever changing California regulatory landscape and apply for new cannabis licenses at reduced costs when necessary, rather than having to acquire licenses that are often overvalued and/or pay outside counsel to handle such matters.

Grapefruit also has its own line of cannabis-infused concentrates and edibles. Among the brands now in stores or soon to be launched are:

  • Rainbow Dreams is a new lifestyle brand designed specifically for the recreational cannabis marketplace. The Rainbow Dreams brand captures the anything goes party vibe of the 1970s by offering an array of cannabis products, such as a line of vape carts with unique cannabis strains combined with all-natural flavors for a superior no-burn experience. Rainbow Dreams fills an important niche in the marketplace as a top shelf quality product line that is competitively priced.
  • Sugar Stoned, which Grapefruit acquired in the winter of 2018, has always been a popular cannabis edibles brand which terminated operations when recreational cannabis became legal and required a license in California. Grapefruit purchased the Sugar Stoned brand in 2019 and it is now a Grapefruit portfolio brand consisting of a premium quality cannabis-infused gummy line with eight different flavors: blue raspberry, cherry, grape, peach, pineapple, sour apple, strawberry and watermelon. Grapefruit intends to expand the brand in the near future through the release of a variety of infused cookies.

Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc. (IGNG), closed Tuesday's trading session at $0.074, off by 2.6316%, on 184,585 volume with 49 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 162,867 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.006095/$0.358999997.

MCTC Holdings Inc. (OTC: MCTC)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight MCTC Holdings Inc. (MCTC).

MCTC Holdings (OTC: MCTC), a cannabinoid science forward company developing unique infusion technologies and cannabinoid delivery systems, today announced its entry into a distribution contract with Marijuana Company of America (OCTQB: MCOA) for MCTC's Hemp You Can Feel(TM) beverage product line.

MCTC Holdings Inc. (OTC: MCTC) is an innovator in the field of cannabinoid nanoparticles and infusion technologies with several important cannabinoid patents filed and an active research and development program underway. The company was reorganized during June of 2019 and announced its intent to enter the cannabis sector and change its corporate identity to Cannabis Global Inc. The company is headquartered in Los Angeles, California.

With the hemp and cannabis industries rapidly expanding in terms of market size, acceptance and number of market participants, MCTC plans to concentrate its efforts on the middle portions of the hemp and cannabis value chain. The company is actively pursuing R&D programs and productization of advanced cannabinoid delivery systems, based on solid polymeric nanoparticles and fibers. These technologies hold the promise to revolutionize the science of cannabinoid bio-enhancement for use in foods, beverages, consumer products and in transdermal applications. Because of nanoparticles’ ability to be quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, nanotechnology has been utilized in the food and drug industry for some time and has the potential for tremendous growth in the cannabis industry (http://nnw.fm/v6RQ6).

Cutting-Edge Technology

MCTC is at the cutting-edge of the cannabis industry’s trends with its emphasis on polymeric nanotechnology. This is not to be confused with the more basic oil-in-water nano-emulsions currently marketed to the food and beverage industry. The company’s polymer-based particles offer significant loading of active ingredients and unmatched flexibility and customization, allowing for myriad combinations of cannabinoids with unique performance characteristics. MCTC believes polymeric nanotechnology particles will be a critical technology area for the cannabinoid formulation marketplace.

The company continues to build its R&D program, specifically researching the development of improving methods to make cannabinoids available to living systems. Instrumental in the research program is the development of novel polymeric nanoparticles and nanofibers. These have the potential to elevate the potential of cannabinoid products in the following ways (http://nnw.fm/cK3Bl):

  • Significantly improving bioavailability
  • Allowing for ultra-high loading rates
  • Enhancing customization of cannabinoid combinations
  • Improved dosing precision
  • Providing more control in release parameters

MCTC leadership understands the importance of developing intellectual property (IP) in the ever-evolving cannabis industry. A recent Forbes article described IP as “critical for creating true differentiation between companies and their product and service offerings” (http://nnw.fm/57Fjh). Recognizing the importance of IP, MCTC has been consistent in its application for patents to protect its innovative nanotechnology applications.

Patents

MCTC has now filed four patents on its cannabinoid delivery technology systems:

  • The company first collaborated with Cannabis Nanosciences Inc. on technologies. This became the basis for its first patent filing on an innovative edible dissolvable film for cannabinoid ingestion.
  • Its second patent filing for cannabinoid nanoparticles combined TPGS, a water-soluble form of vitamin E.
  • Its third patent filing involved a unique 4th dimension, 3D printed cannabinoid delivery system for beverages.
  • Its fourth patent, considered its most significant, broadly covers many aspects of nanoparticles and nano fibers comprising one or more cannabinoids disposed at least partially within a water-soluble medium.

Collaborations

MCTC collaborated with Marijuana Company Inc. (OTCQB: MCOA) subsidiary hempSmart Inc., under a hemp extract and CBD product supply agreement wherein hempSmart will utilize its extensive network of marketing partners to market MCTC’s powered drink mixes and other CBD edibles online. These products are designed for the dry beverage and edibles sector and will be supplied by MCTC. They incorporate the company’s patent-pending cannabinoid infusion technologies and will be trademarked as Hemp You Can Feel (TM) and Gummies You Can Feel (TM).

Leadership

MCTC CEO and chairman Arman Tabatabaei boasts 15 years of management and operations experience and is considered an expert at data collection and analysis relative to resource management, risk forecasting, and profit and loss management. He has acted as a consultant with Cannabis Strategic Ventures (OTCQB: NUGS) and played an instrumental role in improving operations at Sugarmade Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD) relative to the company’s hydroponic growth supplies initiatives.

MCTC founder and director Robert Hymers also brings a seasoned perspective, having had significant experiences in the cannabis industry and as a financial executive and consultant. He is the managing partner of Pinnacle Tax Services in Los Angeles and was previously CFO and director of Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOA). He is currently a member of the Strategic Advisory Board at Massroots Inc. and acts as a consultant to both Cannabis Strategic Ventures Inc. and Sugarmade Inc. Hymers’ background in tax accounting, auditing, SEC reporting, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate finance has immense value in his current position at MCTC Holdings.

MCTC Holdings Inc. (MCTC), closed Tuesday's trading session at $0.04555, off by 18.6607%, on 4,401,005 volume with 259 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 660,706 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.023/$1.194.

Wonderfilm Media Corporation (TSXV: WNDR) (OTC: WDRFF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Wonderfilm Media Corporation (OTC: WDRFF).

Wonderfilm Media Corporation (TSX.V: WNDR) (OTCQB: WDRFF), a leading entertainment company, is finding a lucrative market niche amid rising demand for streaming services. The race to capture content streaming consumers is a salient feature of entertainment, and the company has become more attractive to investors than ever before as a new provider of quality content.

Wonderfilm Media Corporation (TSXV: WNDR) (OTC: WDRFF) main business is the worldwide production of high-quality feature films and episodic television. The Wonder?lm team includes Hollywood veterans who have packaged, produced and delivered several profitable recent films, including “BlacKkKlansman,” “Get Out” and “The Hurt Locker.” Having these individuals on the Wonderfilm team demonstrates the company’s proven access to Academy Award-quality films and upside.

Wonder?lm maintains a continuing $58 million annual production slate to meet the constant and growing need for content worldwide. The company’s risk-averse production process results in predictable and consistent revenue streams.

Soaring demand for content from streaming providers is fueling industry growth. The global media and entertainment market is expected to grow from $1.9 trillion in 2017 to $2.4 trillion in 2022, a five-year CAGR of 4.4%.

The company recently formed Wonderfilm Global, an international film and television sales and distribution joint venture that is expected to generate significant incremental revenue.

Potential for Breakout Success

Wonderfilm movies have the potential for millions of dollars in revenue from the kind of breakout success generated by films like “Saw” and “Get Out,” which would propel Wonderfilm and its revenue streams to a new level. Wonderfilm has several potential breakout films in its development/production queue.

Note: Potential breakout films are not factored into company’s revenue projections.

Wonderfilm Global Distribution

At the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, Wonderfilm officially launched Wonderfilm Global, a new film, television and media foreign sales/distribution joint venture with 101 Films and Paul McGowan.

Wonderfilm acquired 51% ownership in the joint venture structure and immediately began attaching its own productions to Wonderfilm Global. The joint venture represents a significant opportunity for Wonderfilm, changing how the company does business.

The intention behind Wonderfilm Global is to keep distribution margins in-house that previously went to other companies. Since most Wonderfilm movies are relatively low-risk and easy to sell because they feature desirable cast and genre, third-party distribution companies were previously earning approximately 10%, plus expenses, on Wonderfilm movies without any level of risk. Now, revenue is generated through presales of Wonder?lm projects and, at times, third-party films. The average Wonder?lm movie is pre-sold for $5million, garnering $500,000 to $750,000 per sale as a commission. These commissions now stay in-house with Wonder?lm Global, and the company expects to sell 10 to 12 third-party films between fall 2019 and fall 2020, generating roughly $6 million in commission income.

A further revenue source is generated from theatrical sales through a 50/50 upside split once the minimum sales threshold is met.

Wonder?lm Global has offices in Vancouver, Beverly Hills, London, Ireland, Seoul and China.

Wonderfilm Business Model

Wonderfilm productions are structured to begin generating a return to the company as soon as the camera starts rolling.

Return Before a Film is Delivered: Producer fee line items are included in each production budget. These range from $50,000 to $500,000, depending on the total budget, and are paid to Wonderfilm most commonly on the first day of principle photography.

Distribution: Wonderfilm Global charges sales and distribution fees within each production budget to cover its presale costs.

Note: Wonderfilm’s productions are all structured to minimize risk by matching budget to funds available.

Return After a Film is Delivered: Unsold presale territories are countries or territories left off of a film’s presale list, either for strategic reasons or because the broadcaster/distributor is waiting to see the completed film. These outside-the-budget distribution sales become Wonderfilm profit centers.

Sales overages once contracted presale threshold is surpassed.

The company’s film library grows with each new production, adding to future sales revenue. Depending on the agreement, exploitation rights for future worldwide sales return to Wonderfilm four or seven years after delivery. As of October 2019, Wonderfilm’s growing film library comprises 18 titles for future exploitation.

Note: The nature of the film business is that box office revenue lags production up to a couple of years.

$50 Million Wonderfilm Production Fund (WPF):

Wonderfilm is in the process of raising $50 million to establish a Wonderfilm Production Fund (WPF). WPF is designed to consolidate traditional production financing models into a single diversified, asset-backed debt instrument.

The WPF is a highly specialized investment vehicle with noncorrelated market returns normally reserved for institutional banks and specialty lenders, and it would pay 8% interest directly from each Wonderfilm movie or series budget and not from corporate funds. These same interest payments are already added to each production budget, as the company currently closes a separate financing for every film. The WPF would significantly streamline Wonderfilm’s production rate, adding revenue more quickly and broadening the yearly production slate.

For fund investors, the WPF is a dedicated production-financing vehicle designed to offer a risk-moderated approach to investing in film finance. The managed process provides structure and reassurance that are normally experienced only when working with an institutional lender that has a dedicated staff and resources.

All projects being financed are for Wonderfilm productions, with the fund collateral fully secured by receivables, including presale contracts, government incentives, or a guarantee from Wonderfilm for any unsecured amounts as may be permitted.

Wonderfilm Media Corporation (OTC: WDRFF), closed Tuesday's trading session at $0.095, off by 32.0944%, on 25,267 volume with 6 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 58,878 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.072099998/$0.408600002.
