Miramont Resources Corp. (MRRMF)
Stockhouse, Stockwatch, Wallet Investor, InvestorX, Global Mining Review, Junior Mining Network, MarketWatch, Dividend Investor, Canadian Mining Report, OTC Markets, Pinnacle Digest, Wallmine and 4-Traders reported on Miramont Resources Corp. (MRRMF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Miramont Resources Corp. engages in the exploration and development of its Peruvian projects. Its emphasis is on acquiring and developing mineral prospects within world-class belts of South America. The Company was previously known as Miramont Capital Corp. It changed its name to Miramont Resources Corp. in November of 2016. Miramont Resources has its corporate office in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Company entered into a share exchange agreement in June of 2017 to acquire 100 percent of Puno Gold Corp., a privately held Ontario corporation, and Minera Puno Gold SAC, a Peruvian subsidiary of Puno Gold. Minera Puno engages in mineral exploration and development in Peru. It holds options to acquire 100 percent interest in the 988.69-hectare Cerro Hermoso project and the 4,400-hectare Lukkacha project (both in southern Peru).
Cerro Hermoso is in the Puno region, 60 kilometers west of the city of Juliaca, and 5kms west of the supply town of Santa Lucia. Cerro Hermoso is a breccia-pipe prospect targeting Au, Ag, Cu, Zn and Pb mineralization.
Lukkacha is in the Tacna region. It is 55 kilometers east-southeast of the operating Toquepala mine of Southern Peru Copper. The project (a porphyry copper prospect) is 60 kilometers north of the city of Tacna and 8 kilometers from the supply town of Tarata.
In July, Miramont Resources announced that it entered into an option agreement to acquire the rights to the Milenos 32 concession contiguous to its Cerro Hermoso project. The concession gives the Company complete control of the Pocomoro zone. This is where highly anomalous copper and silver has been identified in surface rock samples. The combined area of the project is currently 1318 hectares. It includes the whole diatreme system, which controls mineralization in the district.
Also in July, Miramont Resources announced that the Peruvian Ministry of Energy and Mines (MEM) determined that Miramont is not eligible for an automatic approval of its drilling permit as it is possible that exploration drilling may affect indigenous communities. The Company stated that it appreciates more review to ensure that any potentially affected communities are identified and fully consulted. As Miramont Resources’ Environmental Impact Statement has already been approved, this is the final level of review required before issuance of drilling permits.
Miramont Resources Corp. (MRRMF), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.1262, even for the day. The average volume for the last 60 days is 7,247 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1262/$0.33.
Tinka Resources Limited (TKRFF)
Hotstocked, Barchart, Stockhouse, InvestingNews, TradingView, Northern Miner, InvestorsHub, MarketWatch, Streetwise Reports, Canadian Insider, Wallet Investor, Dividend Investor, The Prospector News, 24hgold, InvestorsHangout, OTC Markets and Junior Mining Network reported on Tinka Resources Limited (TKRFF), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Tinka Resources Limited is an exploration and development company headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia. Its flagship property is the 100 percent-owned Ayawilca carbonate replacement deposit (CRD) in the zinc-lead-silver belt of central Peru (200 kilometers northeast of Lima). Tinka Resources owns 100 percent of the contiguous 150 km2 mining concessions at Ayawilca. The Company is concentrating on growing the Ayawilca Mineral Resources.
Three NI 43-101 Mineral Resources exist on the Property. The Zinc Zone and Tin Zone resources are thought to be mineable by underground methods for resource calculation purposes. The Colquipucro Silver Zone is thought to be mineable by open pit methods.
The Ayawilca Zinc Zone Inferred Mineral Resource estimate currently comprises 42.7 Mt at 6.0 % zinc, 0.2 % lead, 17 g/t silver, and 79 g/t indium. It also consists of a Tin Zone Inferred Mineral Resource of 10.5 Mt at 0.63 % tin, 0.23 % copper & 12 g/t silver.
At the beginning of August, Tinka Resources announced assay results for eight step-out drill holes from the West, Central, Camp and East Ayawilca areas in the Company's continuing resource drill program at the Ayawilca project, Peru. Furthermore, one infill hole at South Ayawilca is reported.
Highlights include two high-grade zinc intersections at the newly named Camp area (holes A18-130 & 134) in the 'gap' between West and Central Ayawilca including 5.7 meters grading 14.9% zinc. The intercept occurs within a repeated limestone unit underneath phyllite.
At West Ayawilca, two follow-up holes to hole A18-129 (10.4 meters at 44.0% zinc) have also intersected high-grade zinc mineralization beneath the known zinc resource. Zinc-rich veins hosted by phyllite in hole A18-132 (including 6.9 meters grading 20% zinc) are believed to be feeder structures that have tapped the source for the zinc mineralization and provide further potential for more mineralization at depth.
Moreover, a positive infill hole at South Ayawilca (A18-133) confirms high-grade zinc replacement mineralization hosted by limestone and sandstone. The hole has improved the geological model in that region.
Tinka Resources Limited (TKRFF), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.31, even for the day, on 17,296 volume with 10 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 56,750 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.3085/$0.75.

It changed its name to Zinc One Resources, Inc. in January of 2017. Zinc One Resources is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Zinc One Resources acquired Forrester Metals, Inc. in June of 2017. As a result, it acquired the Bongará Mine and Charlotte-Bongará Projects. Both host high-grade, nonsulphide zinc mineralization at or near the surface. At the Bongará Zinc Mine the mineralization is concentrated along and proximal to a NW – trending anticlinal axis over roughly 2.5 kilometers.
The Bongará Zinc Mine was mined in 2007 and 2008 by a former owner by open-pit methods, dried at the site, and subsequently shipped 540 kilometers westward to the coast where it was processed through a Waelz kiln. This is a processing technology usually applied to flue dust from steel mills to recover zinc. In August of 2008, the mine was closed down primarily because of a drop in the price of zinc at that time.
The exploration upside at Charlotte-Bongará includes more than 8,000 meters of drilling. This includes results of 29.5% Zn across 15.5 meters, 26.1% Zn across 12.5 meters, and 29.7% Zn across 11.5 meters.
At the end of July, Zinc One Resources announced additional results from its drill program at the Mina Grande Sur zone, part of the Bongará Zinc Mine project. Drilling in this area of Mina Grande Sur has been centered on the delineation of near-surface, high-grade mineralization.
The drill program at Mina Grande Sur consisted of 95 holes for 2,328.4 meters (results from 18 holes are reported). Notable intercepts include 33.7 meters of 24.2% zinc and 16.5 meters of 26.5% zinc. Results from the additional 27 holes are pending. They will be reported upon receipt.

A patient’s stem cells are isolated, processed, and sprayed onto wound sites for quick healing.
Skin stem cells sprayed with the Company’s patented SkinGun™ device maintain 97.3 percent cell viability. There is no impairment to cell growth or metabolic activity when evaluated in vitro. In 2017, RenovaCare miniaturized the SkinGun™ from the size of a microwave to a device that fits comfortably in one hand.
The next major milestone for RenovaCare will be its initial Food and Drug Administration (FDA) filing. The FDA filing will advance its unique technology towards market. The Company’s initial FDA filing will be to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of its approach for treating wounds using a patient’s own skin cells.
In investigative clinical use in the U.S., SkinGun™ treatments have shown the potential to naturally and quickly heal burns and other serious wounds. The CellMist™ System harvests a patient’s stem cells from a small area of skin, usually around 1 square inch. It suspends them in the water-based CellMist™ Solution. The suspension is delicately sprayed onto the wound employing the SkinGun™ deposition device, where it starts to grow new skin at the cellular level.

PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE: 18H)
Health sciences company PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE: 18H) is tackling a topic that many people hesitate to bring up – anxiety disorders, including the devastating physical and emotional damage they cause and the social stigma that’s often associated with them. PreveCeutical’s newly created medicinal cannabis division is bringing the subject out into the open with one goal in mind: to create an effective, preventive treatment that combines the company’s Sol-gel (“Sol-gel”) nasal delivery platform with the beneficial properties of cannabinoids, a news release states (http://nnw.fm/ldw3S). Also today, CannabisNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how PRVCF announced that it has signed an agreement with Asterion Cannabis Inc. to acquire a worldwide license to use, manufacture, distribute and sell three Health Canada approved natural health products. To view the full press release, visit: http://cnw.fm/4oHCT.
PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE:18H), headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, is a health sciences company dedicated to researching and developing innovative options for preventive and curative therapies utilizing organic and Nature Identical™ products. The company is strategically staking out select positions in the medically acute areas of diabetes and obesity, pain management, neurological disorders and cancer.
PreveCeutical Medical Inc. had its beginnings in 2009 when Stephen Van Deventer, a seasoned businessman and venture capitalist, and Kimberly Van Deventer, a successful entrepreneur, met and formed a business partnership. The duo created Cornerstone Global Partners, a venture capital and business development company, and became involved in numerous ventures including building companies such as Aurora Cannabis Inc. Taking their interest in the health and wellness market further, the pair began researching how nature and science can work together to benefit health-conscious consumers. Coining and trademarking the word “PreveCeutical” – a combination of the words “preventive” and “pharmaceutical” – was a precursor to the company’s formation and incorporation in October 2015.
The company’s first product was developed in the Dominican Republic and is now marketed and distributed worldwide by PreveCeutical. It is a Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom product sold under the trade name CELLB9®. This product is an oral dilute solution infused with select peptides sourced exclusively from the blue scorpion (Rhopalurus princeps) found only in Caribbean nations. The active potentiated ingredients in CELLB9, which have been used in over 40 countries for over a decade, appear to support health at a deep, cellular level. PreveCeutical’s research team is using proprietary chemistry to generate Nature Identical™ peptides derived from natural compounds found in Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom with the goal of eventually treating, regulating and preventing cancer progression. Peptides are also being used to target an array of disease indications including metabolic disorders, pain management, cancers, cardiovascular and infectious diseases.
PreveCeutical is developing the first nose-to-brain delivery system of cannabinoids (CBDs) with a novel process that prepares insoluble drug-containing nano-micelles and successfully incorporating them into a proprietary sol-gels application, essentially creating a targeted drug delivery vehicle. Intended for use via a nasal spray, this unique formulation rapidly gels upon contact with mucosal tissue, which paves the way for direct nose-to-brain delivery. This novel application eliminates first pass metabolism (stomach, intestines, liver), potentially improving bioavailability and delivering extended time release formulations that may alleviate side effects of higher dosage therapeutics. This CBD-based patented formula is projected to be deployed in selected markets with licensed medical marijuana companies within 18 months.
PreveCeutical is working with four leading Australian research centers to develop a curative therapy for diabetes and obesity. This four-year program involves engineering a novel approach that selectively targets the gene that encodes for the protein PTP-1B, which is implicated and over-expressed in both type-2 diabetes and obesity. PreveCeutical’s gene-silencing technology would effectively “turn off” the genetic signal which leads to the over-production of this key protein molecule, bringing it back down to safe, normalized levels, and prevent the body from storing excessive fat. Diabetes kills one person every six seconds, with more than $800 billion spent globally on the disease.
Another exciting joint venture, established with Sports 1 Marketing, will focus on the therapeutic potential in the peptides and proteins connected to the Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom to potentially treat mild brain injury concussions. Developing a therapeutic product geared towards athletes who suffer from concussions could help alleviate suffering experienced by those who are affected by head trauma.
PreveCeutical Medical’s science and research team is led by Dr. Harendra (Harry) Parekh, Ph.D., who is based at the University of Queensland’s (UQ) Pharmacy Australia Centre of Excellence (PACE), and Dr. Makarand Jawadekar, Ph.D., whose 28 years of R&D experience with Pfizer Inc., is applicable in his role as chief science officer. Research collaborators include Dr. Rakesh Veedu, an emerging expert internationally in the field of molecular medicine, and Professor Grant Ramm, who is currently head of a leading medical research institute located in Brisbane, Australia.
PreveCeutical Medical is partnering with leading industry experts and companies in its quest to be a leader in the preventive health sciences sector. Its Research and Development partnership with UniQuest, the main commercialization company for the University of Queensland, provides PreveCeutical with the rights to all intellectual property arising from projects created under the agreement. PreveCeutical Medical Inc.’s management team brings an extensive portfolio of research experience, product development, deep corporate strategy and capital markets leadership to the company’s core.
PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (PRVCF), closed the day's trading session at $0.0272, up 0.37%, on 46,750 volume with 14 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 613,404 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.002/$0.20.

FANDOM SPORTS Media Corp. (CSE: FDM) (OTC: FDMSF) (FRANKFURT: TQ42)
FANDOM SPORTS Media Corp. (CSE: FDM) (OTC: FDMSF) (FRANKFURT: TQ42) (“FANDOM SPORTS” or the “Company”), creator of FANDOM SPORTS, the new app that aggregates, curates and produces fan-focused content, will give its users and fans a chance to prove their fandom by becoming contributing writers for the FANDOM SPORTS App!
Allows Sports Fans to Unleash Their Primal Sports Passions
FANDOM SPORTS Media Corp. (CSE: FDM) (OTC: FDMSF) (FRA: TQ42) is a sports entertainment and gaming company “Hell Bent” on finding and creating the best sports content. FANDOM SPORTS allows passionate fans to unleash their primal sports passions by engaging with other fans, cheering for their favorite teams, players and jeering their opponents.
FANDOM SPORTS: The Brand
FANDOM SPORTS exists to allow sports fans to unleash their primal sports passions, to express their adoration for their teams and players, as well as their deep scorn for their opponents.
Building on the success of its current, 2015 designed, FANDOM Sports App, the company is phasing out systematically the legacy product and will launch an enhanced IBM Blockchain Platform accompanied by a new iOS and Android sports app in the fourth quarter of 2018. This core mobile product – the FANDOM SPORTS App – taps into the passion of sports fans around the world, bringing “trash talk” to a new level.
Currently in development with HHS Tech Group and overseen by IBM, the new platform will give FANDOM the flexibility to expand into new global markets by tailoring a shell app, based on demand, to that specific market. While the shell app will look and perform the same globally, it will produce new results depending on the user’s geographic location. For example, a FANDOM Sports App user in China may not be as interested in the NFL, NBA or NHL like a North American market. Instead, their interests could be in eSports and sports leagues native to their country.
With these features, the FANDOM SPORTS App is the ultimate destination for die-hard sports fans. The app enables users to follow their favorite live-action and fantasy teams and players, as well as test their sports knowledge and track viral sports highlights. During Online and live sporting events, professional athletes, commentators and users can engage and debate. It provides a place for fans to connect and square off in real-time with raw, authentic sports debates.
Users are able to log in, celebrate and commiserate with like-minded fans or debate the enemy. The FANDOM SPORTS app currently targets major sports, including football, basketball, baseball and hockey, with future global expansion based on demand and market expansion plans. FANDOM SPORTS’ mighty live sports metadata provider is the Sports radar.
The app’s FanFights feature allows sports fans to engage other users and unleash raw opinions, predictions and uncensored debates. Application-use is further driven when sports lovers can keep up with their favorite teams and players, trash talk, invite friends to “Pick a Fight” to win virtual currency and experience points status.
FANDOM SPORTS has identified a relatively untapped sports market ripe with demand. Large-scale social media players are not nimble enough to fill this gap in the sports entertainment market, and this is where FANDOM SPORTS enters the game. As a newcomer to the market, the company has chosen best-in-class partners to make its platform and sports app.
Monetization is based on multiple potential revenue streams, including in-house advertising sales, brand partnerships, in-app purchases and more.
In addition to its one-of-a-kind, mobile-only IBM Cloud and IBM Blockchain platform, the company’s business model is based on unique features and gamification of FANDOM SPORTS to bring fans, athletes and celebrities together by blending user-generated and curated content.
Through its ability to engage users in a one-of-a-kind social media and competitive mobile sport experience, FANDOM SPORTS is well-positioned within the booming North American and international gaming markets, targeting sports super fans.
FANDOM SPORTS utilizes the IBM Watson learning algorithm, which predicts and services user preferences while building relevant personalized FANFIGHT channels. This brings sports entertainment to a new level, delivering competitive conversation and interaction that rival a sports bar into the user’s hand.
FANDOM SPORTS is led by a strategic management team with combined expertise and a great track record in business development, finance, technology and content curation. The team holds veteran expertise across entertainment, media and music industries, while the company’s advisory board boasts high-level executives, professional athletes and celebrities. New additions to the advisory board cover the massively growing arena of eSports.
Functionality of the FANDOM SPORTS App enables users to engage in sports debates that have definite resolution from live games. The company is implementing strategies extensively used in the mobile gaming industry to attract its users in continued engagement with the FANDOM SPORTS App. Within the application environment, users become invested as “players” to build their profile (“Player Card”) while competing for rewards and prestige.
The app further engages players with a unique in-game virtual currency. Not intended for use in real-world gambling, the virtual currency holds in-app value. With the in-app currency, fans are able to create their own “FANFIGHTS,” “Pick a Fight,” and debate the outcome of arguments. Users are provided a fixed amount of app currency upon initial sign up. As the user contributes and engages with other fans, they accumulate more virtual currency FANCOIN, as well as a higher experience on the platform.
Within the application in Q4, users in certain regions can make in-app purchases to speed up their gaming experience, as well as “Pick A Fight” for prizes, in-game items and potentially live sporting events.
FANDOM Sports is establishing routes to take advantage of strong growth of mobile gaming and mobile games. The worldwide gaming market is forecast to rise to $137.9 billion in 2018, according to Newzoo.
Worldwide gaming is forecast to rise to US $144.31 billion by 2018. In 2015, the online gaming market had a volume of US $37.91 billion, and this figure was forecast to increase to US $59.79 billion in 2020. In 2015, the online gaming gross win accounted for 10 percent of the total gaming gross win, and this was forecast to increase to 14 percent in 2020.
Within this space, the FANDOM SPORTS App is the ultimate destination for die-hard sports fans to dive deeper. The app provides engaging and authentic real-time interactive content aimed right at the company’s targeted age demographic of 18-34. The FanFights on the app create a platform in which intense sports fans can engage other users, unleashing raw opinions, predictions and debates that you don’t want your mom to see on Facebook. Application use is further driven when sports lovers can keep up with their favourite teams and players, vent, gloat, invite friends to Pick A Fight and play to win virtual currency and experience points status.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF)
The United States needs to ramp up production of electric vehicles considerably in order to meet Paris Agreement target goals by 2025. This market growth is expected to translate into an overall higher demand for cobalt, one of the key components of the lithium-ion batteries that power electric vehicles, making clean, conflict-free cobalt exploration projects such as the ones owned and operated by First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF) (ASX: FCC) in North America of crucial importance. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how FTSSF’s recent drilling program in Idaho’s prolific Cobalt Belt extended the strike length of the previously known mineralization in two zones: Waite and No Name. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/xJ2dF.
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: 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 $0.2154, up 7.70%, on 80,932 volume with 41 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 249,744 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.20/$1.3041.

CytoDyn Inc. (OTCQB: CYDY)
Biotechnology company CytoDyn (OTCQB: CYDY) recently reported significant developmental progress during phase 3 trials for its PRO 140 monotherapy for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) after observing enhanced response rates at higher doses of the treatment (http://nnw.fm/3g2Np). To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/xbFr3.
CytoDyn Inc. (OTCQB: CYDY) is a biotechnology company focused on the clinical development and potential commercialization of a new class of HIV/AIDS therapeutics or viral-entry inhibitors intended to protect healthy cells from viral infection. The company’s pipeline includes its lead product, PRO 140 for multiple indications among which are human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), graft-versus-host disease (GvHD), colon cancer, and multiple sclerosis (MS), each in various stages of development. CytoDyn first approval is focused on HIV indications for two different HIV populations.
PRO 140 is a humanized monoclonal antibody directed at CCR5, a molecular portal that HIV uses to enter T-cells. PRO 140 works by blocking the predominant HIV (R5) subtype entry into T-cells by masking this required co-receptor, CCR5.
CytoDyn has completed one pivotal phase 3 clinical trials of PRO 140 use in combination with current drugs for population that has limited treatment options. PRO 140 is also currently in another phase 3 (investigative trial) for a second approval for another HIV population. HIV continues to be a major global public health issue. There is no cure for the disease that has claimed more than 35 million lives to date, according to the World Health Organization (“WHO”). In 2017, 940,000 people around the world died from HIV-related causes. There were approximately 36.9 million people living with HIV at the end of 2017 with 1.8 million people becoming newly infected during that same year. The WHO estimates there were 21.7 million people globally receiving antiretroviral therapy (“ART”) in 2017.
HIV targets the immune system and weakens the body’s defense systems against infections and some types of cancer. As the virus destroys and impairs the function of immune cells, infected individuals gradually become immunodeficient which results in increased susceptibility to a wide range of infections, cancers and other diseases that people with healthy immune systems can fight off. The most advanced stage of HIV infection is Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), which can take from 2 to 15 years to develop depending on the individual.
PRO 140 functions by blocking the HIV co-receptor CCR5, a molecular portal HIV uses to enter T-cells, thus preventing the HIV virus from entering the cell. CCR5 is a protein located on the surface of white blood cells that normally serves as a receptor for chemicals that attract immune cells to the site of inflammation. Clinical trials to date indicate PRO 140 does not interfere with these normal CCR5 functions. Results from phase 1 and phase 2 human clinical trials have shown PRO 140 significantly reduces viral burden in people infected with HIV. Importantly, in a recent phase 2b clinical trial, PRO 140 demonstrated it can allow a subset of R5 strain of HIV population to replace their current HIV regimen (Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy or “HAART.”) by a simple sub-cutaneous self-injectable dose of PRO 140 which is administered once a week. Some of those patients have received PRO 140 as their only therapy for almost four years.
The PRO 140 antibody appears to be a powerful antiviral agent with hardly any side effects, toxicity. More than 500 patients have used PRO 140 in clinical trial and no resistance has ever been developed in any patients including patients in monotherapy of PRO 140 for almost four years.
PRO 140, which is taken as an easy-to-use, weekly, subcutaneous self-administered dose, has almost no side effects or toxicity with no report of any serious adverse event related to PRO 140 in more than 500 patients in eight different clinical trial.
As we indicated earlier patients given PRO 140 showed no drug resistance on monotherapy for some almost four years while 76% of HAART patients developed a resistance to some portion of the lifetime drug regimen. Patient compliance with HAART is also the main reason why only 35% of HIV patients in US reporting complete viral load (VL) suppression which is VL<50 cp/mL.
In addition to its research into the powerful potential of PRO 140 for use in HIV patients, CytoDyn is pursuing PRO 140 as a therapeutic anti-viral agent in other non-HIV indications that could benefit from PRO 140’s ability to block CCR5. These immunologic indications include new reactions to cancer, transplantation rejection, autoimmune diseases and chronic inflammation such as Multiple Sclerosis. The company sees the significant potential for multiple pipeline opportunities for PRO 140.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has designated PRO 140 as a “fast track” product for HIV and granted Orphan Drug Designation to it for the prevention of GvHD in transplant patients. CytoDyn has initiated its first clinical trial with PRO 140 in an immunological indication for GvHD in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) who are undergoing bone marrow stem cell transplantation. The company is also investigating PRO 140 in animal models of cancer progression and autoimmunity with positive results and has published its animal study results in GvHD in peer-reviewed journal.
CytoDyn president and CEO Nader Z. Pourhassan, Ph.D. joined the company in 2008 and is credited for purchasing PRO 140 from Progenics in 2012 and has taken a new path to approval for the product. He is the co-inventor of monotherapy path for PRO 140. He has taken PRO 140 development from phase 2 to Completed successful phase 3 in about four years. He now has more than 10 years of drug development experience and has overseen the rapid clinical development of PRO 140 as a therapy for HIV into two phase 3 for two different indications. He also initiated PRO 140 first immunological indication in GvHD (currently in phase 2). He is also involved in preclinical and clinical development of PRO 140 in additional immunological indications.?Dr. Pourhassan, who has more than 20 years of business development experience, has led CytoDyn’s capital market activities since joining the company in 2008. He received his Bachelor of Science from Utah State University, Master of Science from Brigham Young University, and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Utah and is the author of three books.
CytoDyn Inc. (CYDY), closed the day's trading session at $0.5101, up 1.80%, on 70,186 volume with 33 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 327,181 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.40/$0.836.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO)
Pressure BioSciences Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) recently announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2018, highlighting one of the most successful periods in the history of the company. A leader in the development and sale of pressure-based instruments, the company registered its tenth consecutive quarterly increase (YOY) in products and services revenue. In addition, the company marked another financial accomplishment – an all-time record in total revenue for the first half of the fiscal year.
Pressure BioSciences Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) develops, markets and sells proprietary laboratory instrumentation and associated consumables to the life sciences sample preparation market. Sample preparation refers to the wide range of activities that precede most forms of scientific analysis. It is often complex and time-consuming, yet a critical part of scientific research. The market for sample preparation products is currently estimated at $6 billion worldwide.
The Company’s product line can be used to exquisitely control the sample preparation process. It is based on a patented, enabling technology platform called pressure cycling technology (“PCT”). PCT uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient (14.5 psi) and ultra-high levels (up to 100,000 psi) to safely and reproducibly control critical biological processes, such as the lysis (breakage) of cells, the digestion of proteins, and the inactivation of pathogens.
Pressure BioSciences’ product line is led by its newly released, next-generation Barocycler 2320EXTREME instrument. Named a finalist in the prestigious 2017 R&D Awards (also known as the “Oscars of Innovation”), the Barocycler 2320EXT is already being touted by some key opinion leaders as an essential element of the $1.8 billion U.S. “Cancer Moonshot” program. For example, Professor Phil Robinson, Co-head of the cancer research center of the Children’s Medical Research Institute (Sydney, Australia), said in a recent interview: “We are collecting the whole proteome on 70,000 tumor samples from all classes where complete clinical outcome is known. Due to its unique capabilities, the Barocycler 2320EXT has become a critical part of our program. It is the primary enabler of the high-throughput component of the project. Without this step, our project simply could not be done. In fact, the Barocycler 2320EXT works so well we have just purchased two more.”
Momentum is building when it comes to the potential for using the Company’s unique PCT technology platform. Leading scientists are intrigued by Pressure BioSciences’ approach, which among other attributes, revolutionizes the process of rupturing cells (lysis) for further study, yielding superior biomolecules for investigation. The Company’s technology transcends current methods of breaking open cells, which use chemicals, blades, metal beads, or other damaging and altering methods that can ultimately adversely affect the result for researchers. Pressure BioSciences’ PCT technology utilizes customized, controlled hydrostatic (water) pressure to rupture cells in a chamber, enabling exquisitely customized levels of pressure to optimally break open different types of cells at prescribed pressure levels—something never before accomplished in a commercial setting. Using this pioneering method, the result is a truer, more legitimate sample, which boosts the efficacy of research and the quality of results. The potential impact of this technology on scientific advancement is enormous, enabling research scientists to begin their studies with biological samples of unprecedented integrity, with the potential to improve research outcomes at the earliest, most critical step. PCT can additionally inactivate pathogens (e.g., viruses, bacteria) using hydrostatic pressure, making the samples safer to study—another innovation with astronomical potential for application in a variety of markets.
The Company’s high-pressure instruments for research purposes are marketed throughout the United States, Europe, China and Japan. To date, Pressure BioSciences has installed nearly 300 PCT Systems in over 165 leading academic, government, biotech and pharma laboratories around the world. Its primary applications are in biomarker discovery, forensics, agriculture and pathology. Over 100 scientific papers have been published on the advantages of the PCT platform, which is also being used in the specialized fields of drug discovery and design, bio-therapeutics characterization, soil and plant biology, vaccine development and histology.
Impressive as their biotech business is, there is more to the PBI story. Pressure BioSciences recently received two patents in China for its novel Ultra Shear Technology (UST), a process that has potential in a wide range of industrial applications, including extending the shelf life of some food products and making two insoluble liquids (like oil in water) soluble. Patents have also been filed in many other countries worldwide. UST is a novel technique based on the use of intense shear forces generated from ultra-high-pressure valve discharge.
This important technology has the potential to play a significant role in a number of commercially important areas through its ability to create high-quality, stable nanoemulsions. Scientific studies indicate that improved absorption, higher bioavailability, greater stability, lower surfactant levels and other advantages can be achieved with nanoemulsions – all hugely important factors in the fields of nutraceuticals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and in various medical products. There is an enormous opportunity in the cannabis market, since the technology can potentially reduce oil droplets containing cannabidiol (CBD) to nanoparticles, after which they can be safely suspended in a stable water solution—something many companies have endeavored to achieve without success. Researchers looking for a way to increase the bioavailability of cannabinoids in the body will find this technology a game changer.
The Company’s UST technology also has possibilities in the production of clean label foods, which are currently processed using several innovative methods, including high-pressure treatments (such as Starbucks’ Evolution line of juices). In 2015, the worldwide market for high-pressure processed (HPP) food was estimated at U.S. $10 billion. UST uses ultra-high pressures and certain valves to generate intense shear forces under controlled temperature conditions to produce nanoemulsions, and which also significantly reduces food-borne pathogens. Pressure BioSciences’ initial focus with this technology will be to evaluate UST for the production of high-quality dairy products and beverages.
Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO), closed the day's trading session at $3.98, up 0.76%, on 3,545 volume with 14 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 1,231 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.70/$5.00.

Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF)
Traders News Source, a leading independent equity research and corporate access firm focused on small and mid-cap public companies is issuing a comprehensive report on Choom Hldgs Inc. (OTCQB: CHOOF), a company that is focused on delivering an elevated customer experience through its curated retail environments, high-grade handcrafted Cannabis supply, and a diversity of brands for the Canadian recreational consumer.
Choom Holdings Inc. (OTCQB: CHOOF) (CSE: CHOO) channels the laid-back spirit of Hawaii to the Okanagan region of British Columbia with a generous nod to the inspirational, yet unofficial, history of the 1970s “Choom Gang,” a group of buddies in Honolulu (including former President Barack Obama) who knew how to relax with “choom,” the local’s term for marijuana. Choom’s trademark slogans pivot off another unconventional phrase (“Say Hello to…”), bringing a heady dose of good times and good friends together as the company invites investors to “Say Hello to Choom™” as it lights up the adult recreational cannabis market in Canada.
Choom™ has been an ACMPR (Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations) applicant since November 2013 in Vernon, B.C. The company’s first application has received security clearance and is now in the detailed review stage. They also recently announced their second late-stage ACMPR application, which is in its confirmation of readiness stage. Cannabis Compliance Inc. has been retained to help expedite Choom’s initial license applications to ensure the company’s readiness for legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada mid-summer 2018.
True to the company’s character, Choom™ is retrofitting two large facilities – No. 1 in Vernon, B.C., and No. 2 on Vancouver Island – to house its cannabis growing facilities. Phase 1 of the Vernon property will provide Choom™ with 6,800 square feet of growing space, capable of producing 660 kg/year of cannabis at an estimated revenue of $6.6 million, excluding oils. The company expects this facility to be completed by July 2018, the same month that Canada is expected to formally legalize recreational marijuana for adult use. A potential Phase 2, to be completed by the end of 2018, would add another 6,800 square feet for a total of 1,500 kg/year capacity, which would nearly double No. 1’s revenue. A Level 9 vault is also planned with a storage capacity of 15,000 kg. While the No. 2 facility on Vancouver Island is smaller – 4,500 square feet – its retrofit is also slated to be completed by July 2018. Plans include doubling this space as well, which would add about $9 million in annual revenue, excluding cannabis oils.
Choom™ announced its retail dispensary strategy with the intention of establishing market leadership in reaching the Canadian cannabis consumer. The partner program is already in the retail space design stage as the company seeks to build a chain of branded retail cannabis dispensaries in jurisdictions in Canada where recreational cannabis is legal. Choom™ Stores will have a cool, modern layout and design created to emit an authentic “Aloha” vibe. Choom™ is all about producing high-grade cultivars and curating them for a bigger audience.
A savvy, experienced management team includes Chris Bogart, president and CEO; John Oh, R.P.I.C., Operations Manager; Robert Bayrack, Master Grower, S.P.I.C.; and Adrian Robinson, Strategic Advisor. Bogart has over two decades of international experience in capital markets and was a co-founder of InMed Pharmaceuticals and Magnum Uranium. He has structured complex equity financing transactions in the U.S., Europe and Canada. Bogart is joined on the Board of Directors by Kevin Pull, Stephen Tong and John Oh.
While the medical marijuana industry is expected to double by 2021 to 500,000 registered users, the true highlight of the recreational cannabis represents the key cultural shift set to launch in Canada. With an estimated $4.9B to $8.7B retail market coming, now is the right time for a Recreation Brand like Choom™ to be involved in this growing industry. Establishing and maintaining Choom™ premium brand loyalty is a key factor in the company’s growth strategy. Get ready to “Say Hello” to opportunity, good times and good friends with Choom™.
Choom Holdings Inc. (CHOOF), closed the day's trading session at $0.8142, off by 1.21%, on 362,323 volume with 255 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 582,080 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.153/$1.13.

Auscrete Corp. (OTC: ASCK)
Auscrete (OTC: ASCK) aims to offer turnkey houses for roughly $100 per square foot, which is significantly less than the 2017 median list price of $148 per square foot. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/L0tIe.
Auscrete Corp. (OTC: ASCK) is a building products manufacturer of environmentally-friendly, energy-efficient housing and commercial structures using a lightweight hybrid concrete material developed through a proprietary technology. Auscrete’s unique process produces a medium that is cost-efficient, extremely soundproof, offers high insulation values, requires very low maintenance, won’t burn, non-toxic, highly resistant to insects and mold, and resists damage from hurricane forces and earth tremors. It’s a more affordable, energy-efficient “green” construction material that can be utilized for building residential housing and commercial structures.
Affordable homes are increasingly becoming more difficult to purchase in the U.S. with the median price of a new home consistently rising while wages stay stagnant in many areas and mortgage rates rise. The average price of new homes sold in the U.S. in 2017 was nearly $385,000, according to Statista. The homeownership rate in the U.S. has been in decline since 2004, the report states, and now amounts to a little more than 64 percent of Americans.
Auscrete’s lightweight concrete product is described as an aerated concrete material following infusion of a specially designed foaming agent during manufacture. This technology enables the product to have millions of minuscule air bubble “aggregates” introduced and evenly distributed throughout the cast sections, which creates a unique, lightweight product without compromising strength or structural integrity. Each hybrid panel also incorporates a distinctive XPS insulation amalgamation that guarantees greater comfort in a wide range of climatic conditions and a reduction in heating and cooling costs. The final product is a light and strong concrete panel with an extremely high insulation value, as well as excellent fire resistance and sound-proofing qualities.
Auscrete’s product also offers a high strength-to-weight ratio, allowing architects and engineers to develop new design and construction concepts that take advantage of the product’s reduced weight, which is nearly half that of normal concrete. Each panel can be cast in large sections, a common size being 16-feet by 8-feet, for easier transportation and faster construction on site. Savings are enhanced, not only by the energy efficiency of each panel, but through the use of mass production techniques. Auscrete estimates the company can produce a ready-to-move-in turnkey house for around $100 per square foot, which is significantly less than the 2017 median list price of $148 per square foot in the U.S., according to a report by Zillow.
Auscrete is constructing its flagship, 10-acre facility in Goldendale, Washington, on initially 5 acres the company recently purchased with the option to purchase another 5 adjacent acres. This new campus will ultimately comprise of 6 buildings, including 3 production buildings of 25,000 sq. ft. with each production buildings’ capacity of 100 homes annually, giving this flagship facility the ability to produce 300 homes or equivalent commercial structures per year.
During this construction phase, Auscrete has leased a commercial building in Goldendale. The facility will be used as a temporary headquarters and will also serve as a refurbishing station for production equipment the company has developed and used in its prior production plant. John Sprovieri, CEO and founder of Auscrete Corporation, is at the helm of the company with Mike Young serving as vice president of internal operations and Otto Paulette controlling the in-house mechanical services.
Auscrete’s Investor Relations Director, Lee Odom said, “The company’s construction process has already attracted interest from many developers, contractors and builders, some with large tracts of land looking to make available, significant numbers of Affordable Homes throughout the Country. Additionally, there have been significant commercial projects offered including 300 room destination hotel resorts, correctional facilities, a shopping complex, and a court house along with a flood of inquiries from people who are looking for more affordable building options”.
“This could really launch the commercial aspect for?ASCK, apart from residential home production which so many investors are not yet aware of,” Odom said. “A strong combination of both will lead?ASCK?to better performance through all business cycles, thus continuing to enhance the shareholder values, which is always the ultimate goal of Auscrete Corporation.”
Auscrete Corp. (ASCK), closed the day's trading session at $0.0508, even for the day. The average volume for the last 60 days is 120,231,774 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0001/$0.10.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP)
NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring Lexaria Bioscience (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP), a client of NNW focused on developing and out-licensing its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids and nicotine. To view the full publication titled “Big Businesses Look for Healthier Alternatives to Smoking for Drug Delivery,” visit: http://nnw.fm/p5O7K. Also today, CannabisNewsWire released a report on the company detailing LXRP’s disruptive drug delivery platform, DehydraTECH™, that the company out-licenses to entities aiming to deliver healthier ingestion methods of cannabinoids, vitamins, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), nicotine and other molecules. To view the full article, visit: http://cnw.fm/seLx8.
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 $1.71, off by 1.72%, on 123,470 volume with 160 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 227,309 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.322/$2.54.

Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTCQB: LTMCF)
Lithium Chile (TSX.V: LITH) (OTCQB: LTMCF) holds a robust property portfolio including 15 projects on lithium-rich salars and lagunas in Chile. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/s3cJH.
Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTCQB: 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 $0.54, off by 8.29%, on 55,395 volume with 32 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 48,190 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.535/$0.97.

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (OTC: ZNGY)
Zenergy Brands, Inc. (OTC: ZNGY), the nation's next-generation utility announced today it has filed its Form 10-Q with the SEC, reporting financials from the second quarter (Q2) for 2018. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how ZNGY is leading the way in offering affordable, attractive financing to make upgrading to energy-efficient, smart control products for the reduction of utility consumption a reality through its Zero Cost Program™.
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 $0.0007, even for the day, on 11,248,494 volume with 15 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 21,475,773 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0005/$0.03.
