EnviroLeach Technologies, Inc. (EVLLF)
Dividend Investor, Marketwired, Streetwise Reports MarketWatch, Stockhouse, GuruFocus, 4-Traders, OTC Markets, Barchart, Investopedia, Investors Hub, and Stock Market Revolution reported on EnviroLeach Technologies, Inc. (EVLLF), and we also report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Established in 2016, EnviroLeach Technologies, Inc. is a technology enterprise and near-term gold producer. The Company engages in the development and commercialization of environmentally-friendly formulas and technologies for the treatment of materials in the mining and E-Waste sectors. Its aim is to become a foremost gold producer through the “Urban-Mining” of end-of-life electronics and be a major player in the extraction of precious metals in the traditional mining space. EnviroLeach Technologies has its headquarters in Burnaby, British Columbia.
Utilizing its proprietary non-cyanide, non-acid based process, EnviroLeach extracts precious and base metals from ores, concentrates, and E-Waste using only Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved additives. The Company developed an inventive, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly alternative to cyanide and strong-acid based processes currently used for the extraction of precious metals from mineral ores, concentrates and E-Waste.
The process is alike to the standard cyanide vat leaching circuits used today. However, it is much safer and simpler. The patent-pending EnviroLeach formula consists of combining five non-toxic, FDA approved dry ingredients with ambient temperature water.
EnviroLeach Technologies and Mineworx Technologies successfully advanced their proven chemical formulas and mechanical processes last year with several additional proprietary and patent-pending breakthroughs. The new discoveries include significant enhancements to the proven EnviroLeach E-Waste process concerning improved leach kinetics, improved recoveries, metal complex stability, element selectivity, metal precipitation and the reusability of the primary solution.
The two companies also completed a series of successful pilot scale tests throughout 2017. They completed the design, engineering and construction of the first production scale, 10 tonne per day E-Waste processing plant, which was installed on-schedule and on-budget at the Memphis, Tennessee facility.
The EnviroLeach reagent is well suited for the leaching of gold in an agitated or vat leach type process. This includes the treatment of whole ores, gravity concentrates, flotation concentrates, as well as E-Waste. This segment of the market represents most of the global gold produced.
The Company states that the EnviroLeach process could be an effective alternative for many potentially economic gold deposits that are unable to secure permitting due to cyanide restrictions.
EnviroLeach Technologies, Inc. (EVLLF), closed Thursday's trading session at $1.0499, even for the day, on 30,390 volume with 16 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 26,576 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2277/$1.8554.

Aerpio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ARPO)
OTC Markets, HotStockCafe, HighRisingStocks, Street Insider, OTC Stock Picks, and MarketWatch reported previously on Aerpio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ARPO), and we report on the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Aerpio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. centers on first-in-class treatments for ocular diseases. The Company’s lead compound is AKB‐9778. This is a small molecule activator of the Tie2 pathway. It is in clinical development for the treatment of non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy. A biopharmaceutical Company, Aerpio Pharmaceuticals has its corporate office in Cincinnati, Ohio.
AKB-9778 is currently in a Phase 2b study (TIME-2b) for the treatment of non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR). This is a disease that affects millions of people worldwide. Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is a complication of diabetes caused by damage to blood vessels in the retina. AKB-9778 is undergoing development as a subcutaneous injection.
Aerpio Pharmaceuticals’ second program in development builds on its unique approach to targeting the Tie2 pathway. ARP-1536 is a humanized monoclonal antibody. It works by binding the extracellular domain of VE-PTP, inhibiting its ability to interact with the Tie2 receptor. This prevents the inactivation of Tie2. It also promotes vascular stability.
ARP-1536 is in pre-clinical development. Aerpio’s plan is to develop ARP-1536 in combination with anti-VEGF therapy for the treatment of wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic macular edema (DME).
The Company’s AKB-4924 is in Phase 1 clinical development. Aerpio’s plan is to develop it as a once-daily, oral treatment for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). AKB-4924 is an innovative small molecule inhibitor of prolyl-hydroxylase domain enzymes (PHDs).
This week, Aerpio Pharmaceuticals announced the initiation of dosing in a Phase 1a, multiple-ascending dose study of its hypoxia-inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1 alpha) stabilizer, AKB-4924. AKB-4924 is a once-daily, oral, gut-restricted HIF-1 alpha stabilizer. It has been shown to improve disease indices in numerous models of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The goal of the current study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of multiple daily doses of AKB-4924 in healthy volunteers.
Mr. Kevin Peters, MD, Aerpio Pharmaceuticals’ Chief Scientific Officer, said, “Unlike other HIF stabilizers that mainly affect HIF-2 and stimulate erythropoiesis, AKB-4924 is unique in that it preferentially stabilizes HIF-1 alpha, which has a profound anti-inflammatory and mucosal healing effect. These properties make it an ideal candidate for the treatment of IBD.”
Aerpio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ARPO), closed Thursday's trading session at $4.00, down 1.23%, on 6,159 volume with 10 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 8,708 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $3.29/$6.75.

Zenosense, Inc. (ZENO)
Zenosense, Inc. (OTC PINK: ZENO) a healthcare technology company primarily focused on the development and commercialization of MIDS Cardiac™, a Point of Care handheld device for the early detection of certain cardiac event biomarkers.
Zenosense, Inc. (ZENO) (the “Company”) is a healthcare technology developer that participates in transformational, disruptive medical diagnostic projects; particularly handheld devices used at the Point of Care which are displacing slow and expensive laboratory tests.
Zenosense is primarily focused on the development and commercialization of MIDS Cardiac™ through the Company’s joint venture ownership in MIDS Medical Limited (“MML”). MIDS Cardiac is in development as a cost-effective, handheld Point of Care (“POC”) diagnostic device and disposable test strip for the early, rapid detection of suspected acute myocardial infarction (“AMI”, or “heart attack”).
Identification of very low levels of cardiac markers can significantly accelerate critical triage, diagnosis, treatment and disposition of patients reporting chest pain. Cardiac troponin is well documented as the preferred biomarker for diagnosis of AMI, with evidence continuing to demonstrate that high sensitivity troponin is the most powerful prognostic biomarker for the assessment of cardiovascular risk in the general population. However, highly sensitive troponin assays are currently available only on state of the art, central laboratory analyzers. These analyzers are extremely expensive, not generally available at the POC and slow to turnaround results (typically 60 minutes) when time is critical.
True, high-sensitivity devices are not available in smaller handheld devices at the POC, where they are most needed. This is because the optical detection systems generally used in central laboratory analyzers cannot be effectively miniaturized.
MIDS Cardiac uses the patented MIDS technology platform, exclusively available to MML. Instead of using conventional optical detection, MIDS can detect and quantify assay beads nano-magnetically. This means it can be incorporated in a small device expected to achieve highly sensitive detection levels, which can support true high sensitivity cardiac biomarker tests in emergency settings, at the POC.
Harnessing world-class expertise, the MML laboratory is located at the prestigious Sci-Tech Daresbury campus in the U.K., internationally recognized for leading-edge, scientific research and commercial development. MML has the sole rights to the MIDS technology platform, which is protected by patent applications already granted in China and the USA, and applications now in the national phase in all other key geographic areas.
MIDS Cardiac aims to provide a single troponin I or T test within 3 minutes and three panel assay (additional cardiac biomarkers) on a disposable test strip within 8 minutes, using a hand-held device costing a fraction of the price of laboratory analyzers.
MIDS Cardiac should only require a pin prick of blood for a single assay test carried out on an easy-to-use, disposable microfluidic test strip. MIDS Cardiac is being designed to be operated quickly by minimally trained personnel, producing a simple to interpret result in emergency settings, even in the back of an ambulance.
Initial testing of the electronic and microfluidic components of the MIDS Cardiac “Hybrid Strip” system was completed in November 2017. The Hybrid Strip system used for development testing aims to replicate as closely as possible a fully integrated Lab on Chip MIDS test strip set-up. Development testing was conducted on both the assembled hybrid unit and its electronic and microfluidic components separately, focusing mainly on the electronics of the magnetic sensing system.
Testing revealed that a variety of brands and sizes of commercially available assay beads could be magnetically detected in very low quantities, including samples of beads that were previously undetectable. In several instances, the current “limit of detection” appeared to already be at or near to the range advised by MML’s assay consultants as suitable for a high sensitivity troponin assay.
Dr. Nasser Djennati, MML’s Managing Director and Chief Scientific Officer, said; “These results come in at the very high end of detection expectations, even at this Hybrid Strip stage. As we move forward into true Lab on Chip construction, I expect detection levels to improve further still.”
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the western world, accounting for more than 17 million deaths in Europe and the United States alone. Nearly 20 million patients each year visit an emergency room with reports of chest pain, with hundreds of millions spent on unnecessary admissions to the hospital. Zenosense Inc. is confident MIDS Cardiac will deliver unparalleled levels of accuracy, speed, reliability, ease of use and cost savings, making it the future device of choice for hospitals, emergency rooms, medical practitioners, paramedics and in low-resource settings.
The MIDS technology is also seen as having a far wider application, with the platform being capable of performing Point of Care immunoassay tests for a vast array of common healthcare concerns, a market projected to be worth $23.7 billion per year worldwide by 2019. The medical testing market as a whole is projected to be worth $53.34 billion by 2021. Zenosense believes the MIDS technology could be the most significant advance in diagnostic testing services in decades.
Zenosense, Inc. (ZENO), closed the day's trading session at $0.30, up 15.38%, on 370,033 volume with 126 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 118,062 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.15/$0.895.

BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSXV: DNAX)
NetworkNewsAudio, via NetworkNewsWire (“NNW”), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company that delivers a new generation of social communication solutions for business, today announces the online availability of its interview with BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSX-V:DNAX), a client of NNW specializing in tracking global cannabis strains from genome to sale through a secure, proprietary blockchain technology platform. The interview can be heard at http://nnw.fm/zGM4Q.
BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSX.V: DNAX), a full-service software company headquartered in Vancouver, BC, Canada, has developed the first integrated blockchain platform that registers and tracks cannabis intellectual property (“IP”) from genome to sale. It is proprietary, immutable and cryptographically secure, thereby establishing a single source of truth for cannabis strains and their ownership.
With Canada set to legalize marijuana use for recreational purposes, and other jurisdictions following suit around the world, new challenges will emerge regarding the ability to provide a safe and legal inventory of a product that up until now was largely only available on the black market. Cannabis will be heavily tested and regulated by numerous regulatory bodies in Canada. The cannabis industry faces unique challenges that BLOCKStrain specifically helps it address, including:
- Mandatory Testing: Through BLOCKStrain’s platform and lab-testing partners, the process is more efficient and streamlined, cutting the administrative burden in half and getting products to market faster;
- DNA Based Product Validation: The underlying blockchain technology creates a genetic fingerprint that identifies and validates the product electronically so any participant on the platform, including consumers, can view and track what’s happening with that product from genome to sale;
- Intellectual Property: Third, and perhaps most importantly, the BLOCKStrain platform protects the intellectual property of growers and breeders. This is important for the industry’s growth as products evolve and develop. If a craft grower, for example, creates a popular strain with unique characteristics, it will be able to protect its intellectual property by simply registering the strain’s genome with BLOCKStrain and locking that data into the blockchain. It will reside there forever and will be readily accessible in the event of future disputes, bringing a level of trust to the industry and ensuring licensing fees are paid to all players in the market.
VERIFICATION = CERTIFICATION
BLOCKStrain’s genetics verification process is authentic and incredibly effective. User groups register by creating an account with BLOCKStrain, which starts the process. Organizations and independent growers submit seeds, flower and post-extraction product for testing to a registered and approved testing facility, which then submits test results to BLOCKStrain. Pre-existing data of genetic cannabis strains can also be submitted via BLOCKStrain verification administrators, with those results being added to the user group’s blockchain account. Submissions are entered into BLOCKStrain, and the transaction is completed and recorded.
Each time an item is tested and verified by the network, a Registration Affidavit is auto-generated and given a unique “BLOCKStrain Address” along with a traceable QR Code. Producers, patients and consumers are able to not only verify the test but can also rate the product, write reviews and share opinions. This detail is stored within BLOCKStrain and, just like the test results, cannot be tampered with or modified. Verification and certification are earned by all parties for their participation.
SAFE CONSUMER SUPPLY
BLOCKStrain demystifies the seed-to-sale process for all relevant stakeholders including producers, distributors, shippers, government agencies and consumers by creating a repository of cannabis genomes on an immutable, shared ledger. Thousands of cannabis strains exist and cultivators are breeding new strains all the time. The proliferation of cannabis strains can prove problematic for consumers since there are more than 500 known chemical compounds in a single plant. Furthermore, since several dozens of these compounds have been identified as pharmacologically active, it becomes more and more difficult for consumers to know what they are purchasing.
It is for this reason that being able to quantify the genetics, potency and equivalencies among cannabis products is crucial to the future of legalized cannabis. The difference is not so much in the name or brand attached to the cannabis, but the DNA of the plant itself. BLOCKStrain ensures product integrity, safety, regulatory compliance, product licensing and authenticity – all vital elements for the emerging cannabis industry. This technology also bolsters the process of meeting government regulatory standards by providing real-time visibility of industry operations to agencies assigned to enforce and regulate cannabis activity.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
BLOCKStrain allows for the defense of intellectual property rights for the grower with an authentic, verifiable chain of evidence embedded in the blockchain itself. Proof of ownership for a specific strain of cannabis is paramount in a multibillion dollar industry. Real life ownership disputes have already begun in the industry with legal battles underway. Unfortunately, the framework for resolving these disputes has yet to be defined and they are not likely to be resolved anytime soon.
Consumers and regulators alike want to know whether a cannabis product grown and sold at a local dispensary is safe and meets quality control standards. BLOCKStrain enhances trust of origin from genome-to-sale as cannabis flows through the supply chain, verifying critical steps in the process such as who is growing the plant, which seed is planted and where did it come from, whether pesticides were used, how much was grown, which tests are used to establish quality and potency, where the product is transported and how, and whether possession limits are meeting regulatory standards.
In summary, BLOCKStrain has developed the most comprehensive, secure and community-driven cannabis genetics archival platform for cannabis breeders and growers, large and small, to protect and release their varieties into the public domain, all while compensating and rewarding them for their contributions.
BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (DNAX), closed the day's trading session at $1.08, up 1.89%, on 271,690 volume. The stock's 52-week low/high is $0.10/$0.30.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQB: FTSSF)
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC; ASX: FCC; OTCQX: FTSSF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that results of recent drilling have further extended the strike length of the mineralized zone in the Kerr area to over 350 metres. Also today, NetworkNewsAudio announced an Audio Press Release (APR) titled "Growing Cobalt Industry Looks to Escape Reliance on DRC," featuring First Cobalt. To hear the NetworkNewsAudio version, visit http://nnw.fm/8OdeU. To read the original editorial, visit http://nnw.fm/Z0wTJ.
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQB: 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 $0.59, off by 0.84%, on 84,589 volume with 36 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 118,162 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.32/$1.3041.

Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTC: LTMCF)
NetworkNewsAudio announces the Audio Press Release (APR) titled "Lithium Essential to New Energy Revolution," featuring Lithium Chile Inc. (TSXV: LITH) (OTCQB: LTMCF). To hear the NetworkNewsAudio version, visit: http://nnw.fm/qsM6S. To read the original editorial, visit: http://nnw.fm/Yi8Ye.
Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTC: LTMCF), headquartered in Canada, is advancing one of the largest lithium-rich exploration portfolios in Chile consisting of more than 148,000 hectares covering sections of 13 salars or mineral salt flats and one laguna complex. The company’s wholly owned premier properties include 66 square kilometers on the Salar de Atacama, Chile’s largest mineral salt flat which hosts the world’s highest concentration of lithium brine production and is currently the source of about 35 percent of the world’s lithium production. Lithium Chile also owns a significant copper/gold/silver property portfolio consisting of 28,184 hectares over six different properties.
Lithium Chile’s portfolio in the heart of Chile’s lithium-rich salars includes Salar de Coipasa, Salar de Helados, Salar de Atacama, Salar de Turi Salar de Ollague and Salar de Talar. Surface and near surface salt and brine sampling programs on all properties has been completed. To date, samples of high-grade, near-surface lithium brines at each of these projects are showing excellent chemistry of lithium to potassium and lithium to magnesium ratios. Good chemistry is important as it reduces your overall cost of production. Recent geophysical surveys including T.E.M have been completed on 5 of 6 priority targets and data collected to date has been extremely encouraging.
Lithium Chile has identified multiple high-priority brine target areas at its Atacama and Ollague lithium project areas. These areas display the same geophysical characteristics as the lithium-rich aquifers at Salar de Atacama, home to the world’s largest and highest-grade lithium brine producers. Spanning an area of 1,200 square miles, Salar de Atacama is the world’s third largest salt flat behind Salinas Grandes in Argentina and El Salar de Uyuni in neighboring Bolivia. Exploration drilling and resource definition drilling for these target areas are planned for 2018.
“We are delighted with the discovery of such impressive drill target areas at Atacama and Ollague. The results also follow the recent discovery of a 60km2 target area at another of our top Chilean projects – Helados – where we hope to drill in the second quarter of 2018,” stated President and CEO Steve Cochrane. “We have an aggressive multi-project drill program planned for this year, which includes all three of these exciting projects and we look forward to sharing drill results as they come through.”
Global demand for lithium-ion batteries is expected to surpass US$53 billion by 2024 as governments around the world aggressively seek to ban gas-powered vehicles and major automakers invest billions in new technology and electric vehicles powered by lithium-ion batteries. Chile’s mining-friendly jurisdiction offers Lithium Chile a clear, streamlined permitting process that significantly lowers the cost of lithium production to around $1,800/ton as compared to Australia’s $5,000/ton.
Lithium Chile is led by an experienced team with strong Chilean connections. Cochrane’s 36 years of investment industry experience have primarily been focused on the mining sector. During this time, he raised more than US$500 million for a variety of small cap public companies in various businesses and industry sectors including mining.
Terry Walker, P.Geol., vice president of exploration and chief geologist, is a highly experienced geologist. He has spent over 25 years in Chile’s mining industry and is well connected throughout the sector. Walker is co-founder of GeoServicios Piedra Dorada, an exploration and development services company focused on Latin America. He is a Qualified Person for the North American and Australian stock exchanges.
Lithium Chile is well funded and driven by a top-tier team with more than 100 years of combined experience in financing, mining exploration and development in the natural resources sector.
Lithium Chile Inc. (LTMCF), closed the day's trading session at $0.6714, off by 2.68%, on 2,000 volume with 4 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 1,529 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.6599/$0.9021.

Victory Square Technologies Inc. (VSQTF) is a venture builder that creates, funds and empowers entrepreneurs working in the fields of blockchain technology, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, personalized health, gaming and film. As a technology incubator, Victory Square invests in game-changing entrepreneurs who are provided access to education programs, global mentorship networks, distribution partners, creative workspaces, resources, and other forms of operational support to help them scale internationally.
Victory Square has made multiple early partnerships and investments in the blockchain space. Approximately three years ago the company incubated and invested in BTL Group, which is now a $150 million dollar TSX-listed company offering blockchain solutions across multiple industries with particular focus on the finance, energy and gaming sectors. BTL’s showcase product – Interbit – is a blockchain platform that facilitates the rapid development of business applications that dramatically improve efficiency. Some of the world’s largest institutions are using Interbit to explore new opportunities on private blockchains.
A new social sports betting platform to be developed by Victory Square’s wholly owned subsidiary, FansUnite Media Inc. As a social sports data platform, FansUnite relies on robust data to allow members of its community to engage with like-minded individuals by collaborating, discussing, and predicting the winners of sporting events with a free virtual currency. The integration of blockchain technology into FansUnite’s social sports data platform could also lead to blockchain initiatives developed by other divisions and subsidiaries of Victory Square.
Integral to the FansUnite platform is the introduction of FAN Tokens, an in-game currency purchased with the cryptocurrency Ethereum that token holders can use to place wagers. FansUnite members will be able to earn FAN Tokens through participation in any number of networking effects identified in the company’s Bounty program.
“Blockchain technology and the inherent security it provides will enable us to push every envelope we can to build the most dynamic and responsive social sports betting platform,” said Darius Eghdami, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of FansUnite. “The opportunity to secure data through Blockchain certainly appeals to the accountant in me and we are confident it will become the gold standard among sports betting sites around the world.”
Company subsidiary Victory Square Health Inc., which serves as the venture arm dedicated to companies focused on the development of solutions in personalized health technologies, has also invested in Personalized Biomarkers Inc. (PBI). PBI develops test kits that reliably predict the expected response to a number of therapies prior to prescription, with an initial focus on diabetes.

V2 Games is well known for its successful launch of PAC-MAN Bounce and Beast Brawlers, two of the company’s releases that are capturing the gaming world by the millions of downloads.
In a move designed to strengthen its presence in film and entertainment, Victory Square has acquired a 40 percent equity stake in United Film Fund II, LLC, which is producing three major motion pictures in 2017 and 2018 including “What They Had,” starring two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank.
“This kind of investment in entertainment and film represents a major plank for our Company going forward and we consider ourselves fortunate to have the opportunity to acquire this 40% stake in the Film Fund,” said Tejani, who has launched more than 40 startups in 21 countries that employ hundreds of people and generate more than $100 million in annual revenues. “We believe it’s another strong initiative in film production for us and our stakeholders,” he added.
Victory Square has strategically positioned itself in the legal cannabis industry through an investment in Tantalus Labs, a Canadian-based cannabis cultivation company. Tantalus Labs optimizes plant health and sustainable cultivation by using a unique, environmentally controlled greenhouse engineered specifically for growing cannabis. Called a “SunLab,” the greenhouse takes 90 percent less electricity, uses filtered rainwater, and cools the growing environment to prevent stagnant moisture, recycling the air every 7 minutes to achieve maximum airflow.
Victory Square and its leadership team have seamlessly transitioned from its former identity as Fantasy 6 Sports Inc, a company focused solely on fantasy sports, mobile gaming and immersive sports, to a strategic technology company that creates, funds and successfully executes leading-edge ideas. A long-time technology entrepreneur and advocate of the industry, Tejani received the Person-of-the-Year Award at the 2017 Technology Impact Awards in British Columbia, a hallmark award category that recognizes betterment of the tech industry through leadership and philanthropic or enterprise skills and talents. Tejani has pledged to match up to $1 million in donated funds to be shared by a number of Canadian endeavors aimed at education and child-safe projects.
“These are exciting and important steps in the evolution and growth of our Company, and which properly and fully align with our strategic plan focusing on our core competencies in Blockchain Technology, Artificial Intelligence, Gaming, Personalized Health, Film and Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality,” said Tejani. “We’re spurred on by the success we have had in building on our original forays into fantasy sports, mobile gaming and immersive sports. In addition, we are energized by our most recent initiatives in sports, personalized health and entertainment and the confidence being shown by our shareholders in the dynamic direction of the Company.”
