biOasis Technologies, Inc. (BIOAF)

Zacks, Stockwatch, SmallCapFinancialWire, OTC Markets Group, VentureBeat, and PennyStocks24 reported on biOasis Technologies, Inc. (BIOAF), and we highlight the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

biOasis Technologies, Inc. concentrates on overcoming the limitations of therapeutic drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB). It is developing and commercializing the xB3 platform, its proprietary blood-brain barrier delivery technology, to address unmet medical needs in the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) diseases and disorders. A biopharmaceutical enterprise, biOasis Technologies has its corporate office in Richmond, British Columbia.

The delivery of therapeutics across the BBB represents the single greatest challenge in treating neurological disorders. The Company’s Transcend Platform consists of a diverse set of peptide carriers and linkers. These, together, provide transport solutions for an array of CNS therapeutics. These include monoclonal antibodies, enzymes, small molecules, and different kinds of gene therapies.

Transcend was discovered in the 1990’s in Dr. Wilfred Jefferies’s laboratory at the Michael Smith Laboratories at The University of British Columbia. Transcend is based on the naturally occurring human transport protein, melanotransferrin, also called MTf, CD228 and p97. MTf is found at low concentrations in the blood.

MTf is able to cross the BBB through a process called Receptor Mediated Transcytosis where MTf molecules attach to receptors on the cells of the BBB and is subsequently pulled through the cells and into the brain. With biOasis’ proprietary Transcend carrier, the MTf protein can be attached to therapeutics of different sizes and kinds.

The Transcend Platform is currently available to be licensed by biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies for the advancement of their neurotherapeutic programs. The Transcend Platform has attained a significant high level of success in dozens of studies at more than 20 third-party institutions and pharmaceutical companies. biOasis Technologies has acquired full patent protection for its Transcend group of peptide carriers and linkers.

The Transcend-peptide platform is now referred to as the xB3 platform. It is part of biOasis’ patented portfolio that is transforming therapeutic brain-drug delivery.

Last month, BiOasis Technologies and BioAgilytix announced a strategic collaboration to partner on the development and validation of bioanalytical methods to support and advance the xB3 TM-001 program, BiOasis’ lead candidate to treat HER2+ brain cancer, to investigational new drug (IND) submission and into the clinic. BioAgilytix is a foremost provider of contract bioanalytical testing services with a specialization in large molecule bioanalysis.

Via this partnership, BiOasis Technologies will have access to BioAgilytix’s extensive bioanalytical expertise, especially in ligand binding assays, anti-drug antibody detection, stability assessments across complex matrices and highest quality GLP validation of complex assays.

Last week, BiOasis Technologies announced positive results from a Microdialysis Study showing lead investigational candidate xB3 ™-001 increased brain activity. The Company conducted the Microdialysis Study at Charles River Laboratories, Inc.

The goal of the study was to evaluate the effect of xB3-001 on cortical brain-related activity in a freely-moving in vivo mouse Microdialysis Study. Brain activity was assessed by examining changes on neurochemical levels induced by biOasis’ lead candidate xB3-001 in comparison to trastuzumab alone. This study demonstrated that following a single intravenous treatment, xB3-001 elicited considerable increases in brain cortical dopamine and serotonin activity levels at 60-90 minutes after treatment.

OceanaGold Corporation is a mid-tier, high-margin, multinational gold producer. The Company has assets in the United States, the Philippines, and New Zealand. Its flagship asset is the Didipio gold-copper mine on the island of Luzon in the Philippines. In 2018, the Didipio underground is progressing to plan. OceanaGold is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia. The Company’s Americas office is in Vancouver, British Columbia.

On the South Island of New Zealand, OceanaGold operates the largest gold mine in the country at the Macraes Goldfield, which comprises a series of open pit mines and the Frasers underground mine.

On the North Island of New Zealand, the Company operates the high-grade Waihi Gold Mine. It has commenced permitting of a 10-year mine life extension at Waihi.

OceanaGold operates the Haile Gold Mine in the United States. This is a top-tier, long-life, high-margin asset in South Carolina. In 2016, OceanaGold completed the construction of the Haile Gold Mine. Last year, the Company attained commercial production at Haile. This year, the Haile process plant expansion is underway.

OceanaGold also has a substantial pipeline of organic growth and exploration opportunities in the Americas and Asia-Pacific regions. This year, the Company is processing high grade ore from Coronation North.

OceanaGold has its Argentina Joint Ventures (JVs). It has the potential to earn-in up to 75 percent on each project in this fertile gold region.

Recently, OceanaGold announced the intersection of high-grade mineralization along two large veins (Martha and Empire) beneath the Martha Pit at Waihi in New Zealand. The results come from the latest round of drilling from two drill drives beneath the Martha pit. They form part of a more wide-ranging continuing exploration program, which includes surface and underground drilling.

Mr. Mick Wilkes, OceanaGold President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The latest drill results further demonstrates the significant mineralization that resides beneath the Martha Pit. These results are from a drill program that form only a subset of a much more extensive drill program along kilometers of combined strike and hundreds of meters of vertical vein extent. The exploration program is designed to unlock the million-ounce resource target at Waihi which we expect would sustain current mining operations out to 2030 at historical production levels."

In July, OceanaGold announced the intersection of more high-grade gold mineralization along the East Graben vein at its WKP prospect in New Zealand. The results come from the latest round of drilling. Continental began exploration of the WKP prospect in August 2017 with 1 - 2 diamond rigs drilling 8,005 meters in 17 holes to date. Since the November 2017 exploration update, 6,803 meters have been drilled at WKP centering on the potential of the East Graben Vein - one of three major low sulphidation epithermal gold-silver veins.

For the first half ended June 30, 2018, Continental Gold had Net Profit after tax of $89.1 million. This represents an increase of 45 percent versus the same period in 2017.

Bravada Gold Corp. (BGAVF)

Real Pennies and Gold Investment Letter reported previously on Bravada Gold Corp. (BGAVF), and we report on the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Bravada Gold Corp. is a Nevada-focused exploration and development company. The Company has a large portfolio of high-quality properties. These properties cover a range of development stages - from early-stage exploration to advanced-stage exploration and pre-development. Listed on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB, Bravada Gold has its head office in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Bravada Gold explores for precious metals in well-established gold trends in one of the world's best gold jurisdictions. Currently, five of its Nevada properties are being funded by partners. In total this includes earn-in work expenditures of up to $6.5 million and payments to Bravada Gold of up to +$3.0 million in cash and shares.

Bravada Gold retains residual working or royalty interests. For 2017, the Company says that mine permitting continues on its Shoshone Pediment project. Bravada holds a royalty on eventual barite production.

Pertaining to its Wind Mountain project, Bravada Gold’s plan is to drill-test for high-grade “Hishikari-type” gold/silver vein mineralization beneath the existing disseminated resource at Wind Mountain. Regarding the SF property, the Company plans to drill-test for high-grade “Carlin-type” gold mineralization at the SF property.

Concerning the North Lone Mountain and South Lone Mountain projects, plans have not been finalized for Bravada’s two claim groups. However, Nevada Zinc continues to expand the footprint of zinc mineralization on its claims towards Bravada’s South Lone Mountain claims. Should Nevada Zinc complete the purchase of these claims, Bravada Gold will retain a royalty on base and precious metals.

In May of this year, Bravada Gold announced that it received notice that a third-phase drilling program is underway at its Baxter Low-sulfidation gold property in the Walker Lane Gold trend in Nevada. Kinross Gold U.S.A., Inc. plans to drill 8 to 12 reverse-circulation (R.C.) holes for roughly 2,600 meters. Kinross Gold U.S.A. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kinross Gold Corp.

The Baxter property comprises 240 unpatented lode claims (approximately 1,940 hectares) in the Walker Lane Gold trend of western Nevada. Bravada Gold previously demonstrated widespread low-sulfidation gold and silver mineralization at surface and in relatively shallow reverse-circulation drill holes at a number of target areas.

Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA) (OTCQX: PHVAF)

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

Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, with operations offices in southern California, Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA) (OTCQX: OTCQX) is a premium food and beverage company that develops CBD-infused functional foods, beverages and supplements poised for global distribution. All products in the Phivida label are infused with organic, hemp-derived cannabinoids into a variety of premium foods, beverages and clinical products for everyday health. Phivida is guided by a team of Fortune 500-caliber executives focused on a new strategic portfolio of products and brands, comprehensive consumer research, new product and brand development, improved visual identity and packaging design, and a strong distribution strategy.

The company’s motto – “Celebrating Health and Wellness, in Harmony™” – underscores Phivida’s mission to lead the alternative health care sector as the benchmark standard in premium CBD-infused functional beverages and tinctures. To execute this goal, Phivida is taking advantage of positive legislative developments in the United States and has defined an elevated national route-to-market strategy across the U.S. where small regional distributors will be now be replaced with large national distributors.

Management

Phivida’s management team includes president and CEO Jim Bailey, former president of Red Bull Canada and global chief marketing officer for Merrell Outdoors; Chief Marketing Officer Michael Cornwell, former chief marketing officer for Samsung New Zealand and the former director of marketing for Red Bull Canada; and Doug Campbell, former director of sales for Red Bull North America, who as Phivida’s chief commercial officer is tasked with driving new sales revenue growth.

Publicly traded on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE.VIDA) and recently graduated to the OTCQX Best Market in the USA (OTCQX.PHVAF), the company’s strong balance sheet carries CAD$15.7 million with no debt or loans with less than 60 million shares outstanding and the company is now well-capitalized to fun major mainstream distribution with a solid structure poised for long-term growth.

The Science

Using encapsulation technology, Phivida uses full spectrum CBD-hemp oil (rich in naturally occurring phytocannabinoids) converted into a water-soluble delivery format, which enhances delivery and absorption of the cannabinoids into the human body – up to an estimated tenfold.

Encapsulated CBD is infused into functional beverages, food and supplements containing a proprietary blend of phytonutraceuticals studied to target a range of health and wellness conditions. Phivida tests every product for microbials, heavy metals, pesticides, residual solvents, terpenes, and potency to guarantee less than 0.3 percent THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the chemical compound in cannabis responsible for a euphoric high) is present.

Regulations

Federally legal under the 2014 Farm Bill, CBD from Hemp Oil is a rapid growth market across the USA. When derived from marijuana, CBD remains a schedule one controlled substances, giving hemp derived CBD oil infused products a competitive advantage on regulations. On June 28, 2018, the U.S. Senate passed the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (i.e. the “Farm Bill), lifting the USA Industrial Hemp laws to an agricultural commodity status and effectively removed hemp from the controlled substance list.

Earlier this year, another milestone court ruling also provided significant regulatory support for the US CBD-Hemp sector. In February 2018, the Supreme Court preceded over the HIA (Hemp Industry Association) vs. DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) in a class-action suit concerning the issue of CBD extracted from hemp, and the legality of industrial hemp. In the final ruling the Supreme Court unequivocally determined that – when produced domestically under the Farm Bill – hemp (and its derivatives) are not a controlled substance.

The Supreme Court ruling also found the Farm Bill (as it relates to hemp) “pre-empts” the Controlled Substances Act. Congress has since exempted Farm Bill hemp from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) giving the Farm Bill primary jurisdiction over the governance of the CBD-Hemp Oil industry in the USA.

The DEA further conceded it does not “seek to control cannabinoids,” and that only marijuana derived cannabinoids are governed under the Controlled Substances Act. In May of 2018, the DEA issued a formal directive to all federal agencies (e.g. US Customs and Border Patrol) stating that cannabinoids are not controlled substances unless derived from marijuana, and that the “mere presence of cannabinoids” in any product or derivative does not render it a controlled substance. The Supreme Court ruling also resulted in the mediation of a settlement in what is now the third successful HIA vs. DEA suit in over a decade.

In Canada, the Senate approval of Bill C-45 legalized the production, distribution and use of recreation cannabis – with edibles to be added in 2019. The bill will officially become law as of October 17, 2018, creating a legal framework for the production, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis across Canada including cannabinoid-infused beverages.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP).

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQX: LXRP) (CSE: LXX) (the "Company" or "Lexaria"), a drug delivery platform innovator, is pleased to report significant bioavailability results from its randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind European human clinical study that evaluated TurboCBDTM - a proprietary, DehydraTECH™ powered, cannabidiol ("CBD") fortified hemp oil capsule developed by Lexaria. Also today, LXRP, together with Hill Street Beverage Company (TSXV: BEER), this morning announced that the companies have signed a definitive agreement to license Lexaria's DehydraTECH™ for five years on a semi-exclusive basis to produce a line of cannabis-infused alcohol-free beverages to be distributed in Canada following regulatory approval. To view the full press release, visit: http://cnw.fm/2Nx3H.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. Though boasting a wide range of health benefits, cannabinoids are traditionally poorly absorbed by the body’s gastrointestinal tract. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering hemp oil ingredients – or through locally licensed partners, cannabis oil ingredients – through a patented process within food products.

The key differentiator between Lexaria’s products and others on the market is the company’s disruptive technology proven to enhance the absorption of orally ingested cannabinoids while improving the “unusual” taste of cannabinoids and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the USA, and internationally. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within lipids in popular foods. These brands include ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, and TurboCBD™.

In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent, third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company’s technological process and lipid formulation both improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Additional follow-up studies in human volunteers suggested that Lexaria’s processed, lipid-infused tea may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation with results indicating as much as a 1,000% increase in overall absorption.

Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government’s National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria’s unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D are expected to support accelerating B2B relationships – not just in the cannabis industry, but also to support new B2B business relationships in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs, and nicotine delivery. All of these sectors expected to offer additional future growth potential.

Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong intellectual property portfolio that utilizes the most commonly used food processing techniques. As of 2017, the company’s patent portfolio includes 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world. The most recent patent applications expand Lexaria’s lipophilic food and beverage composition claims to include the processing of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine in many of the world’s most commonly used food processing ingredients. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the USA and internationally in 2017 and 2018.

Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third party partners, and has several deals signed and/or pending. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $50 million in working capital for the companies he has led over the course of his career. He is supported by a team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP), closed the day's trading session at $1.82, up 5.97%, on 152,836 volume with 270 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 238,819 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.322/$2.54.

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.”

Victory Square Technologies and its management team believe innovation, incubation of excellent ideas and social responsibility are at the core of its growing success.

SHRV has created the “Blue Ocean Strategy,” which melds three keys together to implement the company’s vision. These keys include elevating home-based entrepreneurs, known as “Elepreneurs,” utilizing the direct selling channel to generate 100 percent organic growth.

Sharing Services Inc. subsidiaries include:

  • A growing international network of home-based entrepreneurs, called “Elepreneurs”
  • Growing selection of health and wellness products dedicated to elevating the well-being of all people

Sharing Services recently expanded its corporate footprint by moving to a 10,000 square foot facility in Plano, Texas, that offers room to expand as the company grows and its subsidiaries 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.

“The opportunity to expand to the rest of this new building over the course of the next six to 12 months ensures we won’t have to move again anytime soon,” Sharing Services Inc. Chairman Robert Oblon said. “We are on track for very significant growth here in the U.S., as well as upcoming international expansion, so this move is in preparation for what’s in front of us.”

The company recently signed a joint venture agreement with Health Wealth & Happiness Limited (“HWH”) to expand its “Elepreneurs” brand and market its products throughout Asia. The newly formed company will be named “Elepreneurs Asia Limited” and will have marketing and sales rights to China, Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Papua, New Guinea.

Attendees arrived from several countries including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Singapore and Hong Kong. Keynote speakers included several internationally known motivational leaders – Shawn Achor, Sandra Yancey, John Fleming and Les Brown – who provided exceptional material and inspirational discussion points.

“The enthusiasm of our attendees and the early success that we are experiencing is incredible considering our growth has been 100 percent organic, with almost no marketing from the company,” Oblon said. “I’m speechless by the dedication of our Elepreneur leaders and their entire teams, as they share our incredible line of products that have helped so many people.”

Sharing Services and its management team plan to travel the U.S. to hold several mini conferences to expand on the messages presented at its Happiness Convention that focus on helping people become “healthier, happier and wealthier.” Details of the company’s aggressive global expansion initiatives are soon to be announced, Oblon said.

The law firm of Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP has been retained as outside corporate counsel for all general business matters. The Dallas-based law firm will represent Sharing Services, Inc., and its subsidiaries as the company utilizes the direct selling channel for a significant component of its overall growth strategy.

John “JT” Thatchwas appointed president and chief executive officer of Sharing Services, Inc., at a March 1, 2018, annual shareholder meeting.

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

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

E-commerce continues to see steady growth, thanks in part to growing markets and in part to clever gamification and analytical tools. Gamification uses the psychology of video games to encourage shoppers to spend money and share information. The addition of analytics lets retailers better understand their customer base. China and India will soon have nearly 2 billion smartphone users, vastly increasing the e-commerce market. DeepMarkit, Inc. (TSX.V: MKT) (OTC: MKTDF) is tapping into all these trends, creating an adaptable gamification app for online retailers that provides analytics while attracting customers.

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 $0.0243, even for the day. The average volume for the last 60 days is 19,818 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0238/$0.12.
