Heliospectra AB (HLSPY)

MarketWatch, Barchart, Equities, and OTC Markets reported on Heliospectra AB (HLSPY), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Heliospectra AB (publ) specializes in intelligent lighting technology for plant research and greenhouse cultivation. The Company designs, develops, manufactures, and sells lighting systems in Sweden and worldwide. Heliospectra is an international leader in intelligent lighting technology for horticulture-controlled environments. OTCQB-listed, the Company has its corporate headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Heliospectra’s lighting system provides an effective and durable technology for cultivating greenhouse and indoor plants through uniting numerous diverse groups of versatile Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) with optics, remote sensing techniques, and a strong heat dissipation solution. The Company provides smarter LED grow lights for commercial greenhouses, indoor grow facilities, as well as research applications.

Heliospectra’s patented solution enables growers to create customized lighting spectrum recipes. These recipes may be able to shorten a cannabis plant’s flowering cycle and even alter a strain’s balance of active cannabinoids.

The design and engineering of its highly-engineered Heliospectra Light System is to replace traditional lighting solutions in commercial greenhouse environments. For indoor grow facilities, its patented lighting system enables an operation to grow plants that look and taste better, have a longer shelf life, and boost the overall yield of its operation.

Heliospectra’s LED light systems make it possible to closely control the intensity of light wavelengths and to accurately match the spectrum to a particular plant. The spectral distribution of its systems (400nm to 735nm) is consistent with the action spectrum of photosynthesis and critical photomorphological receptors.

The Company has its light control software HelioCORE™. HelioCORE connects Heliospectra’s LX60 adjustable spectra and LX50 high voltage intelligent LED lighting solutions with sensors and schedule functions for real-time light adjustments.

This past April, Heliospectra announced the commercial release of its new light control software HelioCORE™. HelioCORE enables businesses to automate and connect growing environments to reliably monitor and forecast yields, and ensure consistent, high-quality crops year-round. The HelioCORE system is compatible with the Company's LX60 and RX30 intelligent LED lighting solutions.

ABB (ABBN: SIX Swiss Ex), a pioneering technology leader in electrification, robotics and motion, industrial automation and renewables, and Heliospectra are joining forces to explore unique solutions, which will increase the productivity and the sustainability of the greenhouse and controlled environment agriculture produce industry in the Middle East and Africa.

The Company previously went by the name Litera Group, Inc. It changed its corporate name to First Foods Group, Inc. in February of 2017. First Foods Group is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Company earlier signed cannabis business expert Mr. Robert Hunt, Esq. to identify opportunities in the legal cannabis industry where First Foods' management, expertise, and relationships could have significant effect. Mr. Hunt is one of the distinguished consultants in the legalized marijuana industry. He has been instrumental in many of the best known and most successful cannabis businesses in operation today.

First Foods Group entered into a binding term sheet in April 2017 with internationally renowned chocolatier and entrepreneur Mr. Oded Brenner. This is to fully develop Mr. Brenner’s new chocolate-based retail concept.

This venture is jointly owned by First Foods Group and Mr. Brenner. Initial plans are to launch two flagship stores in New York, New York, as well as to immediately leverage manifold multi-unit global franchising opportunities.

Holy Cacao is marketing premium chocolate products created and packaged by Holy Cacao consultant, Mr. Oded Brenner, founder of "Max Brenner, Chocolate by the Bald Man," for the legal cannabis sector. Mr. Brenner has incorporated an exotic mix of champagnes, sherries, and select cannabis strains into his chocolate formulas. Among the lines scheduled for production are "Lips", "Body and Soul", "Something About You and Me", and "Shooting High."

First Foods Group registered its Holy Cacao® subsidiary with the State of Nevada on August 31, 2017. Moreover, it officially finalized its brand, logo, packaging, and 7 proposed products, completing its design and concept phase. First Foods Group states that Holy Cacao will soon be licensed as a THC product in the legal marijuana states.

NaturalShrimp, Inc. (SHMP)

ThePennyPicks, SmallCapVoice, Pennystockmania, PennyPickGains, and WallstreetSurfers reported on NaturalShrimp, Inc. (SHMP), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

NaturalShrimp, Inc. is an international leader in aquaculture technology. It has developed and tested the first commercially-viable system for growing shrimp indoors. The system employs a proprietary technology to reliably produce healthy, naturally-grown shrimp weekly without the use of antibiotics or toxic chemicals. NaturalShrimp has developed a technology to produce fresh, gourmet-grade shrimp dependably and economically in an indoor, re-circulating, saltwater facility.

OTCQB-listed, NaturalShrimp is based in Dallas, Texas. The Company’s production facility is outside of San Antonio, Texas. NaturalShrimp, Inc. owns 100 percent of NaturalShrimp Corporation, established to operate in the United States and Canada, and 100 percent of NaturalShrimp Global, Inc., created to form International Joint Venture (JV) Partnerships.

NaturalShrimp operates a closed-system saltwater aquaculture facility. The facility produces high-grade Pacific White shrimp. It accomplishes this without using the antibiotics and chemical additives today’s shrimp farms require. The technology causes ammonia (NH3) to break down into risk-free nitrogen and hydrogen gas. As a result, this eradicates one of the historically most demanding problems in shrimp aquaculture.

The Company’s European partner has built a production facility in Medina del Campo, Spain. Expansion plans include domestic and worldwide production facilities and distribution channels.

NaturalShrimp’s production facilities will be the aquaculture industry’s first truly eco-friendly, sustainable way of cultivating shrimp in high density environments. The Company’s eco-friendly, bio-secure design does not depend on ocean water. It recreates the natural ocean environment allowing for high-density production, which can undergo replication anywhere globally.

The NaturalShrimp Automated Monitoring and Control system utilizes individual tank monitors to automatically control the feeding, the oxygenation, and the temperature of each of the facility tanks independently. Additionally, a facility computer, running custom software, communicates with each of the controllers and performs more data acquisition functions that can report back to a supervisory computer from anywhere worldwide.

In late May, NaturalShrimp announced that it is installing an enhanced version of its patent pending, vibrio suppression technology system at the La Coste, Texas production facility.

Mr. Tom Untermeyer, Chief Technology Officer, stated, "The testing we conducted went very well; the electrocoagulation system developed with our strategic partner, F&T Water Solutions which is headquartered in Largo, FL, exceeded technical specs with a greater flow rate and less power consumption, therefore reducing overall projected operating costs."

NaturalShrimp, Inc. (SHMP), closed Monday's trading session at $0.0154, down 12.00%, on 736,150 volume with 33 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 837,564 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.015/$1.00.

PwrCor, Inc. (PWCO)

Investors Hub, MarketWatch, OTC Markets, Amigo Bulls, Stockhouse, Barchart, and Stockopedia reported on PwrCor, Inc. (PWCO), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

PwrCor, Inc is a clean technology energy technology company. It is launching advanced and disruptive solutions for the Waste Heat to Energy, Geothermal, and Solar Thermal markets, as well as other applicable markets. PwrCor also focuses on energy infrastructure development projects and delivering cleantech energy solutions to commercial and not-for-profit customers. PwrCor has its headquarters in New York, New York. The Company’s shares trade on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.

PwrCor also identifies, selects, and implements cost-effective and sustainable energy production technologies for its customers. The Company assists in varied ways to finance those improvements. The PwrCor™ engines utilize proprietary technology that can cost effectively convert ultra-low-grade heat to usable mechanical or electrical energy.

PwrCor™ uses no fossil fuels and does not operate via combustion. It has no emissions, and does not process any working fluids that are flammable, harmful to the environment, or expensive to replace. PwrCor™ is scalable and modular. Moreover, it runs relatively silently, all within a small footprint.

PwrCor has started a program with Consolidated Edison, Inc. to develop a pilot project based on its proprietary PwrCor™ engine technology. This program is based on PwrCor’s advanced green waste-heat-to-power technology in an application that captures waste steam condensate and converts it to electricity before it is disposed of in the municipal sewer system.

Consolidated Edison (Con Ed) is one of the largest publicly owned energy companies in the U.S. The structure of the program is to culminate in a Pilot Project installation of a PwrCor engine at a suitable Con Ed customer site.

PwrCor’s proprietary technology captures the steam condensate (hot water) before it is disposed of. This technology can deliver electric power to the building. In addition, because of the process, it cools the hot water, eliminating the need to buy water to temper the over-hot condensate before it can be disposed of in the sewer system.

The Company’s proprietary technology can operate in the entire range of temperatures. However, PwrCor expects to quickly capture market share through expanding the market into lower temperature resources. The Company can make a customer’s power generation more efficient. PwrCor can help them tap renewable energy sources, therefore qualifying them as providing renewable energy.

The Company’s executive team combines years of practical experience with alternative energy technology and solutions with years of experience and a notable record of accomplishment in successful energy project development. PwrCor has access to proprietary technology; it also works to select the best appropriate technology for any particular application. PwrCor has a bias towards applying “green” or environmentally benign technologies and alternative energy solutions.

PwrCor, Inc. (PWCO), closed Monday's trading session at $0.19, up 8.57%, on 484 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 60 days is 19,588 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.09/$0.51.

Lixte Biotechnology Holdings, Inc. (LIXT)

Real Pennies reported earlier on Lixte Biotechnology Holdings, Inc. (LIXT), and we are reporting on the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Lixte Biotechnology Holdings, Inc. is a drug discovery company listed on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB. The clinical-stage Company employs biomarker technology to identify enzyme targets associated with serious common diseases and subsequently designs novel compounds to attack those targets. Lixte’s product pipeline covers two major categories of compounds at different stages of pre-clinical and clinical development, which the Company believes have extensive therapeutic potential for cancer and other debilitating and life-threatening diseases. Lixte Biotechnology’s corporate office is in East Setauket, New York.

The Company’s dedication is to discovering drugs for more effective treatments for cancer. It has identified molecular signaling pathways altered in disease states and designed compounds that can safely target them in animal models.

Lixte’s present drug portfolio includes inhibitors of protein phosphatases that are vital to cell division and DNA damage repair, and inhibitors of protein deacetylases that regulate pathways of gene expression and protein degradation.

The Company’s innovative phosphatase inhibitor is LB-100, its lead compound. LB-100 is in a Phase I clinical trial at two NCI designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers and three U.S. Oncology Research locations.

Lixte Biotechnology granted an exclusive license of its LB-100 for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in Asia to Taipei Medical University (TMU). LB-100 is not presently approved for treatment of HCC. Under the license, Taipei Medical University will determine the effectiveness of LB-100 against HCC in clinical trials conducted in compliance with Taiwanese and American regulatory requirements. TMU will pay milestone and royalty payments to Lixte Biotechnology.

Lixte Biotechnology presented a late-breaking abstract earlier in 2017 entitled "Protein phosphatase 2A inhibition with a novel small molecule inhibitor, LB-100, achieves durable immune-mediated antitumor activity when combined with PD-1 blockade in a preclinical model" as a poster (abstract number LB-193) at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2017 in Washington, DC on April 4th. The research was done in collaboration with scientists at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), NIH.

Lixte Biotechnology’s cancer drug development strategy has led to the discovery of novel compounds. These have the potential to be therapeutically useful against a number of other important but seemingly dissimilar diseases. The phosphatase inhibitors are in pre-clinical development for decreasing the extent of tissue damage following stroke, heart attack, and septic shock. The deacetylase inhibitors are in pre-clinical development for the prevention and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, traumatic brain injury, and topically for fungal dermatitis.

Lixte Biotechnology Holdings, Inc. (LIXT), closed Monday's trading session at $0.30, up 20.00%, on 7,962 volume with 5 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 7,889 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.094/$0.30.

WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp. (OTCQB: TVTV)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp. (TVTV).

NetworkNewsWire released a report on WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp. (OTCQB: TVTV) today explaining the many reasons why TVTV is “One to Watch.”

WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp. (OTC: TVTV) is a next-generation OTT (Over-the-top) television subscription service that manages live-stream broadcast programming rights across multiple devices, geographies and languages, providing viewers with personalized service that is truly “wherever” they may be watching TV.

WhereverTV’s patented Interactive Program Guide (IPG) technology currently handles over 125 live channels that are broadcasted securely over the Internet to any Internet-enabled device anywhere in the world. Many of the company’s channels are the same as those broadcasted by traditional cable and satellite companies. For example, the World News Now package includes One America News, RT News (Russia Today), Bloomberg TV, CBN News and EuroNews Live — the latter provides pan-European coverage in 350 million households in 155 countries. Other channel packages include Choice TV (a wide variety of popular options for the family), Spanish TV, Faith TV and Morocco TV, providing current genre-specific subscriptions for news, faith, drama, sports, movie, reality and children’s programming.

WhereverTV’s free app works with iOS and Android devices to cover the spectrum of mobile consumer needs, as well as with personal desktop or laptop computers through its over the top (OTT) platform. The platform delivers channels, shows and events to SmartTVs and digital media receivers that include Google Chromecast, AppleTV, Amazon Fire TV, iPhone, iPad, Android Smartphone and TabletPCs, with DVR recording functionality slated for future development.

The company, based in Fort Myers, Florida, was developed in 2007 as a solution to its founder’s frustration with the complexities of trying to stream English speaking content while abroad.  As the live-streaming market has developed over the decade since then, WhereverTV has gained recognition as a pioneer in next-generation content delivery systems.

WhereverTV’s strategy is to increase revenue-generating subscriptions worldwide through the acquisition of content that is desirable to consumers and deliverable anywhere a device can connect to the Internet. Prepaid accounts will be accessed through the cloud, and the IPG technology will allow users to make their viewing choices. The company has developed two separate divisions, one for worldwide distribution and one for Latin American distribution.

In 2017, the company acquired Digital Rodeo, LLC, a Tennessee limited liability company that delivers a rich mixture of music and videos from independent country artists, current arrests and legacy artists, as well as similar Florida-based companies Digital RodeoTV, LLC (Name changed to WhereverTV Country in 2018), Digital CrossTV, Inc., Digital PopTV, Inc., and Digital RockTV, Inc.

WhereverTV is transitioning from a development to operational company and in doing so we have refined our 2018 business model,” CEO Edward D. Ciofani stated. “Our business model calls for content acquisition from around the world, exclusive content development, Major Marketing Alliances, similar to the announced Google Chromecast for Latin America and major marketing initiatives including social media marketing. … There are a lot of content providers (channel providers) around the world that offer a uniquely diversified perspective of cultures, travel and lifestyle content.”

As an increasing number of people “Cord-Cutters” no longer subscribe to the traditional cable or satellite distribution but rather a simpler lower cost means of watching content. The streaming OTT industry is expected to grow to $62 billion by 2020 — nearly triple its revenues in 2015, per Goldman Small Cap Research. Future Market Insights estimated the North America OTT market alone at $16.29 billion in 2017 with a CAGR of 17.4 percent through 2028. The arrival of 5G technology this year has the potential to accelerate the pace.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF).

Fully integrated oil and gas company Petroteq Energy (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQX: PQEFF) this morning provided an update on the progress at its Oil Extraction facility in Asphalt Ridge, Utah. Per the update, the company is on track to initiate “full on” operations at the end of July and ramp up production with an expected 1,000 barrels per day (“bod”). To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/5Bc4o.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF) is a Canadian-registered, publicly traded company engaged in the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the environmentally safe extraction of heavy oils from oil sands, oil shale deposits and shallow oil deposits. The company is focused on oil and gas exploration and production on mineral leases it owns in Texas with Accord GR Energy Inc. and in expanding production capacity at its Asphalt Ridge heavy oil extraction facility in Utah.

Petroteq Energy is also participating in a blockchain initiative aimed at solving the global transaction needs of the oil and gas industry through the development of PetroBLOQ, the Company’s collaboration formed with First Bitcoin Capital Corp. (OTC: BITCF). PetroBLOQ’s novel blockchain-based oil and gas supply chain management platform is currently being co-developed by the two companies.

PetroBLOQ recently joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (“EEA”), the world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative. Membership with the 200-member EEA represents a wide variety of industries and offers 14 industry-focused, member-driven working groups.

“Joining this community of forward-looking enterprises and blockchain innovators is an important step for PetroBLOQ as we develop transformative solutions for the oil and gas industry,” said Petroteq Energy CEO Alex Blyumkin.

In addition, Petroteq has joined the American Petroleum Institute (API). The API is the only national trade association representing all facets of the oil and natural gas industry, promoting safety across the industry globally and influencing public policy in support of a strong, viable oil and natural gas industry. “API has led the development of operating standards for our industry, and we look forward to contributing our experience with oilfield technologies in addition to introducing our PetroBLOQ platform to its members throughout the supply chain,” Blyumkin previously stated.

Petroteq Energy’s patent-pending application is a closed-loop, solvent-based process, which results in significantly lower per-barrel production costs than those incurred with traditional hot water-based oil sands extraction technologies. This green technology utilizes a small, modular footprint, produces no greenhouse gases, requires no high temperatures, leaves only clean dry sand, and could be deployed to unlock heavy oil deposits located around the world.

The Company’s Asphalt Ridge mineral lease on 3,000-plus acres in northeastern Utah features a large contingent oil sands resource base with an estimated 87 million barrels of oil equivalent. In 2015, the company produced 10,000 barrels of oil from the Utah location and plans to increase production are underway. Utah holds over 32 billion barrels of undeveloped oil sands resources, which are also known as “oil-wet” deposits containing a mixture of sand and a dense, extremely viscous form of petroleum referred to as bitumen or tar. A recent upswing in developing domestic energy sources has intensified interest in technological advances such as Petroteq’s Liquid Extraction System.

The company’s Texas location includes an ownership interest (46%) in 7,000 acres under mineral leases with Accord, a Houston-based oil and gas exploration company that focuses on the development and recovery of heavy oil reserves and deposits. Two enhanced, licensed oil recovery technologies designed to increase oil recovery from more than 80 shallow oil wells on the property are expected to substantially improve the recovery rates of heavy oil deposits in this area. In both the Utah oil sands and traditional oil patch Texas project, the Company, its subsidiaries and Accord are using proprietary technologies, processes and methodologies to recover heavy oil, providing a distinct, strategic economic advantage for Petroteq Energy and its shareholders.

The Company continues to evaluate the development of other medium to heavy oil exploration, production and recovery projects on a global basis through a variety of structured agreements. These opportunities or other arrangements with private and governmental entities that utilize Petroteq Energy’s proprietary licensed technologies are expected to generate a significant return on investment.

The Company’s management team, board of directors and officers form an invaluable cross-section of industry leaders with extensive experience ranging from chemical engineering and solvent research, business development, international project management, entrepreneurial achievements, and senior management for global energy companies in North America and the Middle East. This impressive knowledge base covers both conventional and unconventional oil and gas projects and production, both in upstream and downstream industry sectors.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF), closed the day's trading session at $0.9487, up 14.38%, on 688,307 volume with 495 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 113,974 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.28/$1.8892.

CIIX is also leveraging its financial expertise to enter into the burgeoning CBD industry, which within a few years has grown from a relatively invisible sector to a billowing market expected to reach $2.1 billion in consumer sales by 2020.

The increasing demand for CBD-based products is a catalyst for innovative business endeavors. To this accord, CIIX has established a three-year development plan to capitalize on the convergence of CBD and the nutrition and health products market in mainland China, where the benefits of CBD oil have not been widely recognized.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG).

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), a Nevada corporation specializing in state-of-the-art financial services structured to serve the medical cannabis and banking industries, today announces it has reached an agreement in principle that will result in the nation’s largest mobile hemp CBD processing service.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG), headquartered in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is a first-tier merchant processing cannabis industry pioneer, offering one of the first and only comprehensive card processing operations of its kind to serve the state-sanctioned medical marijuana industry. The company’s state of the art system, which also tracks sales and tax collection, and eliminates the need to deal in cash-only transactions.

Through its robust, closed-loop merchant processing system, the company’s unique “StateSourced” proprietary system enables authorized operation under FinCEN parameters and complies with all regulatory frameworks. StateSourced is tailored to deliver full-spectrum merchant processing services, providing the convenience of modern commercial card processing resources and making it the first operation of its kind geared to the legal cannabis industry.

StateSourced is not a prepaid or gift card, which is an important variable for merchants since standard banking institutions have not offered this form of payment processing to the legal cannabis industry. Federal law still considers marijuana illegal under the Controlled Substances Act, although 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the plant either for medicinal or recreational uses or both. This restriction has kept financial institutions at bay since most banks are federally insured and haven’t been inclined to venture into the nascent industry.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions is able to offer its StateSourced card on a state-by-state basis where the card can be used in purchasing product from a legal, authorized vendor, providing a much-needed option for consumers and businesses alike. In another first, the company is collaborating with First Bitcoin Capital Corporation to integrate First Bitcoin’s cryptocurrency ($Weed) with Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions’ StateSourced payment gateway. This collaboration will allow state-licensed marijuana establishments across the nation to accept both StateSourced debit cards and cryptocurrencies such as WeedCoin and Bitcoin.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions president and CEO Jeremy Roberts and his executive team are working with state lawmakers to introduce legislation in an effort to address the growing problems in banking for the medical cannabis industry. For companies in the emerging legal cannabis industry, where retail and non-retail transactions such as vendor payments and payroll are almost exclusively paid for with cash, the solutions offered by StateSourced can help businesses avoid the inherent risks associated with a cash-intensive sector. Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions has also signed its first StateSourced contract with a Las Vegas-based vertically integrated marijuana establishment.

“We’ve completed our transition from development stage to revenue stage,” says Roberts. “We have just started our business development efforts and the market is responding very well. We anticipate having many more, similar releases.”

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions provides end-to-end management across multiple systems for medicinal marijuana operations. The company solves the fragmentation problem experienced by many of these rapidly growing companies by identifying tools that are important to dispensaries and customizing those tools to meet the specific needs of this unique industry.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), closed the day's trading session at $0.048, up 6.67%, on 699,912 volume with 91 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 572,263 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0161/$0.092.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD).

The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD)(US:TGODF) is a company built on innovation with the goal of becoming the largest organic cannabis producer in the world. The path is clearly evident from the way we have financed the Company with our retail first approach, to our strategic hires, recent expansion, exclusive licensing deals, entering international markets and most importantly, TGOD’s organic differentiation.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF), whose principal location is in Hamilton, Ontario, produces farm grown, organic, pesticide-free medical cannabis in small batches using all natural, organic craft growing principles. TGOD is licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) to cultivate medical cannabis. The company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).

Committed to becoming the global leader in delivering organic cannabis solutions that enhance people’s lives, TGOD consistently adheres to the highest levels of excellence. Its world-class management team includes a proven group of leaders with outstanding executive and operational experience specific to consumer packaged goods, consumer products, cannabis and finance industries.

TGOD is positioned as one of the highest quality and most cost efficient cannabis producers in Canada by leveraging innovative technology and low-cost power solutions. It holds one of the largest land packages under a single ACMPR license in Canada, providing future cannabis Agri-park style development and opportunities for joint ventures, licensing and distribution partners. 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.

Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (NASDAQ: FRSX) (TASE: FRSX)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (FRSX).

Foresight Autonomous Holdings (NASDAQ: FRSX) (TASE: FRSX) recently discussed the advantages of its passive sensor vision system compared to active ones (http://nnw.fm/wW9G3). To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/loP62.

Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (NASDAQ: FRSX) (TASE: FRSX), founded in 2015 and headquartered in Israel, is a technological innovator in automotive vision systems and driver assistance technology. Through its wholly owned subsidiary, Foresight Automotive Ltd., Foresight is engaged in the design, development and commercialization of stereo/quad-camera vision systems and V2X cellular-based solutions for the automotive industry based on 3D video analysis, advanced algorithms for image processing and sensor fusion. The company’s powerful and patented stereoscopic technology is derived from field-proven technology that has been deployed throughout the world for almost two decades.

Foresight’s innovative autonomous driving solutions are based on mature, proprietary stereoscopic image technology that uses two synchronized cameras to mimic human depth perception and produce a three-dimensional image. This 3D image can anticipate possible collisions with other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and other obstacles. The technology provides highly accurate real-time alerts about the vehicle’s surroundings while in motion. The systems are designed to improve driving safety by enabling highly accurate and reliable threat detection while ensuring the lowest rates of false alerts.

The company’s patents provide IP protection for its robust and proven proprietary stereoscopic technology, which was developed using the security technology of Foresight’s major shareholder, Magna B.S.P.

Foresight has developed three main products:

  • QuadSight™. This breakthrough detection system sets the bar for autonomous vehicle vision. It features nearly 100 percent obstacle detection with almost zero false alerts and operates optimally under all weather and lighting conditions, including darkness, rain, fog, haze and glare. QuadSight™ is the first quad-camera multi-spectral vision solution of its kind, driven by advanced and proven image processing algorithms. The system consists of two sets of stereoscopic infra-red and visible-light cameras that enable highly accurate and reliable obstacle detection for seamless 24/7 vision.
  • Eyes-On™. This solution uses advanced algorithms for accurate depth analysis and obstacle detection to provide a unique stereo vision Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS). It can detect all potential obstacles regardless of shape, form or material, including other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and animals. It has an accuracy and reliability of almost 100 percent and near zero false alerts.
  • Eye-Net™. This is a cellular-based accident prevention solution that is designed to provide real-time pre-collision alerts to vehicles and pedestrians. This proprietary system is deployed on smartphones and cloud-based servers operating on existing cellular networks, and it eliminates the need for additional designated hardware. Eye-Net™ is designed to provide a complementary layer of protection to advanced driver assistance systems and extends this protection to road users who are not in direct line of sight. It is optimally designed for both urban environments and high-speed scenarios to provide protection for the most vulnerable road users. On March 28, 2018, Foresight announced that it had completed a successful feasibility study of its Eye-Net™ accident prevention solution involving 120 users of Android and iOS cell phones located across Israel.

In 2017, Foresight sought more opportunities within the international market. The Company signed pilot agreements with three leading car manufacturers in China and completed pilot projects meeting all pre-defined requirements and criteria. In addition, FRSX completed a pilot project with Uniti Sweden.

Studies by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety continue to emphasize the dramatic reduction in accidents and injury-related crashes reported when vehicles are equipped with collision avoidance systems. A recent study by the Institute states that the rate of single-vehicle, sideswipe and head-on crashes was 11 percent lower in vehicles with the warning systems. More importantly, the study shows collision avoidance technology cut the rates of injury crashes of the same type by 21 percent.

Foresight Autonomous Holdings, Inc. also holds a 32 percent interest in RailVision, a company that develops advanced systems for railway safety and maintenance. RailVision has successfully completed 13 tests in Israel, Germany, Italy and Switzerland in addition to a real-time system test with a European railway operator. Over the course of 2017, RailVision successfully completed rounds of financing totaling $5.8 million and started the process of licensing the system according to European standards.

Haim Siboni is the founder of Foresight and has served as the company’s chief executive officer and director since 2015. Siboni, a passionate entrepreneur, has an extensive background in the marketing and business management sectors in the fields of electronics, video, TV, multimedia, computerized systems, line and wireless telecommunication, design and development of systems and devices, including electro-optic radar systems. He is the founder and CEO of Magna B.S.P., Foresight’s major shareholder and a leading innovator in the field of homeland security surveillance solutions.

Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (FRSX), closed the day's trading session at $3.23, off by 0.31%, on 36,673 volume with 130 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 55,495 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $2.44/$9.9953.

DeepMarkit Inc. (TSX-V: MKT) (OTCQB: MKTDF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight DeepMarkit Inc. (MKTDF).

DeepMarkit (TSX-V: MKT) (OTCQB: MKTDF) has reportedly reached an average of 61 percent month-over-month growth in its merchant base since launching its slide-out app “Gamify” for e-commerce websites less than four months ago. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/tIv4d.

DeepMarkit Inc. (TSX-V: MKT) (OTCQB: MKTDF), based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, is a patent pending gamification technology company inventing new ways to engage consumers and other audiences. The Company’s proprietary promotions platform – “Gamify” – enables businesses and agencies to create branded games that incentivize consumers, thus driving sales, capturing data and generating leads. The DeepMarkit platform integrates next-gen gamification engagement mechanics with interactive advertising industry standards and powerful visuals, including 3-D images. Customers may choose from both free and paid solutions suitable for campaigns of all sizes, targeting multiple channels on the web, mobile and social media.

A team of seasoned, passionate gaming executives, led by president and CEO Darold Parken, has worked together for more than 15 years developing games and gaming systems that are still used today by some of the largest gaming companies in the world. This accomplished executive team founded Chartwell Technologies, acquired in 2011 by Amaya Gaming, which now is known as The Stars Group (Nasdaq: TSG) with a market cap of over $5 billion.

Gamify offers a selection of easily customizable gaming apps featuring a customer’s branded e-store in addition to tailored landing pages, technical support, real-time analytics, data collection and an engaging marketing campaign. Gamify’s patent-pending app comes complete with unique user incentives that draw consumers in with games and prizes, which in turn engages shoppers, turning them into buyers and building brand loyalty.

The gamification market is rapidly expanding and projected to be worth $22 billion by 2022, with a CAGR of 41 percent. DeepMarkit is the only publicly listed company focused solely on this exploding market that embraces any size of business, from the mom-and-pop shops to the blue-chip giants. DeepMarkit’s management team knows that increasing a customer’s conversion rate by a mere 1 percent has the potential to double revenue, which is why Gamify’s app and its ability to transform simple shoppers into engaged buyers is so compelling.

“Our marketing platform enables customers to build branded games that incentivize audiences, generate leads, and drive sales. Businesses need a way to stand out from the crowd,” Parken states in an investor’s video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97hJoRKR92k). “DeepMarkit’s gamification platform gives customers that way to stand out and it’s a way that they can afford. That’s the strength of our platform. For a relatively small amount of money, any business can create a very powerful, high quality customer engagement using gamification.”

DeepMarkit recently entered into a joint marketing agreement with ITN International (“ITN”), a global leader in trade show data capture and analytics. The agreement will enable the 1.5 million exhibitors at the 125-plus yearly events serviced by ITN to purchase a customizable campaign with prize delivery and branded games that can be used in collaboration with ITN’s lead retrieval solutions. DeepMarkit and ITN are currently integrating DeepMarkit’s patent-pending gamification platform directly into ITN’s exhibitor portal.

“We started DeepMarkit because we have a passion for games and we believe in the power of games, not just for entertainment but more importantly as a tool for business,” Parken said. “DeepMarkit is a gamification company. What we mean by that is that we create innovative ways to use games for business purposes. Games to generate customer leads, games to promote products, deliver rewards, build brand awareness and customer loyalty.”

Selected as the winner of the New Company/Product pitch competition at the Retail Global 2017 Conference held in Las Vegas, Gamify’s platform has also attracted a $1.5 million investment from Allstate International LLC in Hong Kong. The investment gives Allstate a 10 percent stake in DeepMarkit and a great opportunity to bring the Gamify platform into the burgeoning Asian gaming market.

DeepMarkit Inc. (MKTDF), closed the day's trading session at $0.0364, even for the day. The average volume for the last 60 days is 27,340 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0293/$0.12.

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (OTC: ZNGY)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY).

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (OTC: ZNGY) is a next-generation energy and technology company that combines energy services and smart controls. The company offers commercial, industrial and municipal customers the ability to reduce their utility consumption and carbon footprint while decreasing the demand on the national energy grid and water supply in the United States.

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (OTC: ZNGY) is the nation’s leading next-generation energy and technology company operating in the emerging smart energy, conservation, and utility industries. Headquartered in Texas, Zenergy provides an entire suite of conservation-based products and services that enable clients to achieve sustainability goals, reduce carbon emissions and improve their bottom line. The company’s cutting-edge Zero Cost Program™ reduces utility expenses by 20 percent to 60 percent by offering energy conservation, smart controls, and efficiency-based products and services to residential, commercial, industrial and municipal end-use customers.

The Zero Cost Program™ is a financing mechanism that allows customers to reduce water, natural gas and electricity expenses by implementing proven conservation technologies at no out-of-pocket cost. The Zero Cost Program™ enriches businesses by immediately reducing energy consumption through the use of smart controls, building automation, LED lighting solutions, refrigeration optimization, efficient water systems, EC motor controls, demand-side management and load factor correction.

A unique Managed Energy Services Agreement (“MESA”) allows a portion of these utility savings to be retained by Zenergy’s partner financing the upgraded, retrofit equipment and installation costs until a specified repayment period ends. After that, clients reap all the financial rewards of the technologies implemented, which Zenergy estimates should range between 25 percent and 45 percent of total utility costs.

Residential customers seeking cost-effective energy savings can also choose from a suite of “Smart Home” products including home automation, security monitoring, and energy conservation services that can be controlled 24/7 from the comfort and convenience of their smartphones or internet-connected smart devices. Zenergy’s residential program offers partnership opportunities for homebuilders and residential, multi-family real estate developers to provide smart home technologies to high-end customers.

Zenergy Brands’ acquisition of Enertrade Electric LLC, a fully operating, licensed Texas-based Retail Electric Provider (REP), further increases the company’s value proposition. Zenergy CEO Alex Rodriguez said this new subsidiary adds an essential complementary service to the company’s suite of smart energy products and services.

“Since our founding, our vision has been to converge smart controls (home and building automation) with energy conservation and retail energy to deliver the comprehensive smart energy service to customers,” Rodriguez said.

On a global scale, residential and commercial buildings account for nearly 45 percent of the world’s total energy consumption. Improving the energy efficiency of these homes and buildings is often a more affordable way to reduce harmful gas emissions while minimizing the need for new energy production. According to Navigant Research, global revenue for energy-efficient commercial building retrofits alone is expected to grow from $71.4 billion in 2016 to $100.8 billion in 2025. At the same time, the energy-efficient devices market is expected to reach a market size of $908 billion by 2022. Increasing demands for reduction in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions along with concerns over climate change are contributing factors driving the market’s overall growth.

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY), closed the day's trading session at $0.0017, off by 10.53%, on 34,321,486 volume with 99 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 11,004,403 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0014/$0.03.
