It reported a Gross Profit of R733 million for the period, in comparison to a Gross Loss of R139 million for the prior comparable period.

Impala’s improved operating performance resulted primarily from efficiencies at Impala Rustenburg, a strong operational turnaround at Marula, and a sustained performance from Zimplats.

Nickel Creek Platinum Corp. (NCPCF)

(NCPCF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Nickel Creek Platinum Corp. is a mining exploration and development company headquartered in Toronto, Ontario. Its focus is on advancing its 100 percent-owned Nickel Shäw Project with the aim of creating Canada's next world-class nickel sulphide mine. The Company previously went by the name Wellgreen Platinum Ltd. It changed its corporate name to Nickel Creek Platinum Corp. in January of this year. Nickel Creek Platinum lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQX.

The 100 percent-owned Nickel Shäw project is positioned in the southwest of Canada’s Yukon Territory, around 317 km northwest of the capital, Whitehorse. The Project has excellent access to infrastructure, located three hours west of Whitehorse via the paved Alaska Highway, which further provides year-round access to deep-sea shipping ports in southern Alaska.

Nickel Shäw is host to more than 2 billion pounds of nickel, 1 billion pounds of copper, 6 million ounces of platinum group metals (PGM's) and 120 million pounds of cobalt in the Measured and Indicated categories. The Nickel Shäw Property lies within the Kluane First Nation core area as defined by their treaty with Canada and the Yukon Government.

Nickel Creek Platinum reported this past July the final results of its Phase II Metallurgical Program on the Nickel Shäw Project. The Phase II Metallurgical Program succeeded in its primary objective of separating bulk CuNi concentrate into separate saleable nickel and copper concentrates. This represents the most in-depth and comprehensive metallurgical undertaking completed so far at the Project.

Last month, Nickel Creek Platinum announced an update on the status of its Nickel Shäw Project. Following the conclusion of the Company’s Phase II Metallurgical Program, it embarked on more work toward completing a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA).  During the course of the Phase II Metallurgical Program, it reported that it identified a strong correlation between nickel recovery and total sulphide content.

Particularly, it was determined that the presence of sulphides (sulphur in pyrrhotite) was an important marker of nickel recovery. This means that the areas of higher sulphur yielded higher recoveries, and areas of lower sulphur yielded lower recoveries, irrespective of nickel head grade, which remains relatively consistent throughout the deposit.

Nickel Creek Platinum Corp. (NCPCF), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.07176, up 1.07%, on 41,290 volume with 16 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 144,126 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0685/$0.296.

Nemaura Medical, Inc. (NMRD)

Market Exclusive, OTC Markets, and 4-Traders reported on Nemaura Medical, Inc. (NMRD), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Nemaura Medical, Inc. is a medical technology business listed on the NasdaqCM. The Company is developing the wireless sugarBEAT® disposable adhesive skin-patch as a non-invasive, needle-free, pain-free, and affordable continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system for adjunctive use by diabetics. Nemaura Medical is based in Loughborough, England.

The Company’s patient-friendly technology has the potential to transform health monitoring through providing real-time, tailored feedback on glucose, lactate, and other vital body performance metrics. Its patented BEAT™ technology (passing a mild, non-perceptible electric current across the skin) draws a small number of selected molecules, such as glucose, into a patch placed on the skin.

These molecules are drawn out of the interstitial fluid. The patch (by way of a sensor) measures the amount of that molecule present, converting it into a meaningful concentration value for clinical diagnosis or preliminary guidance for self-treatment.

The BEAT™ technology will permit remote continuous monitoring of chronic diseases and health conditions. It is to replace traditional invasive methods of diagnosis and healthcare observation procedures.

The sugarBEAT® App can be pre-downloaded on a user’s smart device. There is an optional sugarBEAT® handheld reader (applicable where a user chooses not to use their own smart device).

sugarBEAT® provides accurate glucose measurement. sugarBEAT® comprises a reusable transmitter containing a daily-disposable adhesive skin-patch.

Nemaura Medical announced at the end of January 2018 positive summary data for its sugarBEAT® European clinical trial program. The summary results were taken from a 25 patient cohort of the earlier reported European three-stage 75 patient Clinical study, consisting of 80 percent Type 1 and 20 percent Type 2 Diabetics.

Results indicate an overall MARD (Mean Absolute Relative Difference) of 13.76 percent over an extensive dynamic glucose concentration range. Up to 70 percent of the data from the study paired between sugarBEAT® and the venous blood glucose concentration achieved an average MARD of 10.28 percent, denoting even greater accuracy. No serious or major device related adverse events were noted. A MARD of 10 percent is considered to be sufficient for making therapeutic decisions.

Recently, Nemaura Medical announced that it entered into a definitive joint Collaboration Agreement with Dallas Burston Ethitronix (DBE) to commercialize sugarBEAT® in the European Economic Area (EEA). Nemaura Medical earlier signed a licensing agreement with DBE for the commercialization of sugarBEAT® in the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland.

DBE and Nemaura Medical are in discussions with a number of large international organizations active in the Diabetes space with established infrastructure and market presence, concerning appointing one or more sub-distributors to cover European territories. DBE and Nemaura will share equally in all income and expenditure under the terms of the agreement.

BioCardia, Inc. (BCDA)

Penny Stock Hub, Investing Note, Penny Stock Tweets, Stockwatch, Stockopedia, Simply Wall St, Journal Transcript, Wallmine, TradingView, Insider Financial, 4-Traders, Marketbeat, and MarketWatch reported earlier on BioCardia, Inc. (BCDA), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

BioCardia, Inc. is a leader in the development of complete solutions for cardiovascular regenerative therapies. Its biotherapeutic product candidates in clinical development are CardiAMP® (autologous minimally processed bone marrow cells [a patient’s own cells]) and CardiALLO® (allogenic culture expanded mesenchymal stem cells derived from bone marrow [donor-derived]) cell therapies. A clinical-stage regenerative medicine company, BioCardia has its corporate office in San Carlos, California.

The Company’s two therapeutic programs are enabled by its Helix™ transendocardial delivery systems and Morph® vascular access products, which are partnered to enable other promising biotherapeutic programs. Additionally, the Helix transendocardial delivery system is being used by several clinical partners in biotherapeutic clinical trials.

The Helix transendocardial delivery system is the foremost percutaneous catheter delivery system for cardiovascular regenerative medicine. Helix enables the local delivery of cell and gene-based therapies to treat heart failure, myocardial infarction, ischemia, and cardiac conduction disorders. BioCardia’s CardiALLO uses younger universal donor mesenchymal stem cells. The Company states that CardiALLO may be suitable for patients who are not optimal candidates for the CardiAMP therapy.

CardiAMP harnesses the potential of autologous minimally processed bone marrow cells, utilizing a companion diagnostic to identify patients most likely to benefit from the therapy. The design of the investigational CardiAMP cell therapy system is to deliver a high dose of a patient’s own bone marrow cells directly to the area of cardiac dysfunction to stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanism after a heart attack.

In September, BioCardia announced the issuance of two United States patents. U.S. Patent No. 10,035,982 relates to methods of preparing culture-expanded cells for the treatment of heart failure. This patent has broad claims on an approach for expanding mesenchymal stem cells in media derived from the blood of the same donor who has provided the source cells for culture expansion.

The second issued patent, U.S. Patent No. 10,071,226, describes a system for delivery of biotherapeutic agents to the heart. The patent claims a catheter system that may be used to attain heart access from the radial artery in a patient's wrist and subsequently advanced into a chamber of the heart to directly deliver biologic therapies.

Recently, BioCardia announced that positive data from two studies of its investigational CardiAMP stem cell therapy were presented on September 24, 2018 at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference. Nine month results from the 10-patient roll-in cohort of the CardiAMP Heart Failure Trial (a Phase III pivotal trial) showed clinically meaningful improvements in symptoms, quality of life and exercise capacity, as measured by New York Heart Association class, Minnesota Living with Heart Failure Questionnaire and Six Minute Walk Distance, respectively.

The well was drilled to a total of 5,765 feet measured depth (5,700 feet true vertical depth). No problems were encountered while drilling. A complete integration of the well information and seismic data will be performed for further evaluation of the shallow potential of the wellbore and the block, and to define commerciality of these oil plays.

GulfSlope Energy recently announced that on September 13, 2018, it started drilling of its initial subsalt exploration well in the Gulf of Mexico on the Tau Prospect located on Ship Shoal Area, South Addition Blocks 336/351.  The Tau Prospect is being drilled with the high-spec Rowan Ralph Coffman jack-up rig that recently completed drilling operations on GulfSlope’s Canoe Prospect.

Mr. John N. Seitz, Chief Executive Officer of GulfSlope Energy, said, “This is the first well to be drilled in our exciting portfolio of high potential subsalt prospects.  Advancements in both imaging and drilling technologies are what enable this play today.  Reverse Time Migration (RTM) depth imaging and critical noise suppression technologies allowed our geoscientists to establish an improved subsurface image below salt.”

(SPLIF), and today we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Nutritional High International, Inc. concentrates on developing, manufacturing, and distributing products and nationally recognized brands in the hemp and marijuana-infused products industries. These include edibles and oil extracts for nutritional, medical, as well as adult recreational use. The Company works exclusively through licensed facilities in jurisdictions where such activity is permitted and regulated by state law. Nutritional High International is headquartered in Toronto, Ontario.

Concerning its Marijuana-Infused Products segment, Nutritional High focuses on developing, acquiring, and designing Marijuana-Infused Products (MIPs) and Marijuana Concentrate products and brands. With this segment, it is establishing operations in Colorado and Illinois. It is working to expand into more U.S. States in support of its strategy to establish some of the first nationally-recognized brands for MIPs.

Regarding its Hemp-Infused Products segment, the Company launched the first product in its Active Hemp category under the brand of “Nutritional Traditions”. For this segment, first distribution will center on California and Colorado via cannabis-related retail stores: medical marijuana dispensaries, vape lounges and headshops; and Food Supplement retail stores.

Nutritional High International entered into an agreement to acquire the technology and Intellectual Property (IP) rights to an innovative product to be referred to as the “Dab Stick”. The Dab Stick is a dispenser for viscous liquid substances. It can carry approximately 1⁄2 gram of cannabis oil extract designed with the retail consumer and adult use user in mind.

Nutritional High International has signed a definitive agreement for the acquisition of Pasa Verde. This is a commercial scale cannabis oil extraction and edible facility in Sacramento, California. Pasa Verde produces a number of extract products on a contract manufacturing basis for leading brands. It will produce Nutritional High's FLÏ™ branded oil and edible products.

At the beginning of October, Nutritional High International announced that it entered into formal agreements to acquire 75 percent of Nevada-based Green Therapeutics LLC, along with a put and call option to buy the remaining 25 percent interest. The Company had earlier entered into a Letter Of Intent (LOI) to undertake the Acquisition. Entering into the formal Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (MIPA) permits Nutritional High to proceed to submit filings to the relevant Nevada State and municipal regulatory bodies for approval for the ownership change.

Today, NeutriSci International, Inc., the innovator and pioneer behind neuenergy®, and Nutritional High International provided a further update on their earlier announced partnership. The first production run for the newly developed chewable, sublingual cannabis product (NU Tablets) for distribution and sale in California, is on course and underway at Nutritional High's FLI NorCal facility in Sacramento, California.

Regen BioPharma, Inc. (RGBP)

Small Cap Solutions, InvestorTrendz, Insider Financial, TopPennyStockMovers, YCharts, ProTrader, Emerging Growth, SmallCapVoice, Wall Street Mover, TheMicrocapNews, and The OTC Reporter reported earlier on Regen BioPharma, Inc. (RGBP), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Regen BioPharma, Inc. is a biotechnology company listed on the OTC Markets’ OTCQB. The Company works to identify undervalued regenerative medicine applications in the immunotherapy and stem cell space. Its aim is to quickly advance these technologies through pre-clinical and Phase I/II clinical trials. Checkpoint Immunology, Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. Regen BioPharma has its head office in La Mesa, California.

At present, Regen BioPharma is focusing on checkpoint inhibitor and gene silencing therapies for treating cancer. Furthermore, it is focusing on developing stem cell treatments for aplastic anemia. Fundamentally, the Company is working to increase the quality of life through therapies involving small molecules, stem cell treatments, and the body's own immune system. It is currently developing products treating blood disorders employing small molecules and gene silencing (DiffronC) and treating cancer with immunotherapy (dCellVax).

Regen BioPharma is also modulating vital molecular processes in cancer stem cells by way of its patented molecular targeting approaches (BORIS). In addition, it is repairing damaged bone marrow in patients with aplastic anemia and chemotherapy/radiotherapy treated cancer patients (HemaXellerate).

Regen BioPharma is centering on small molecules to activate and inhibit its main target of interest, NR2F6. The Company is continuing to develop the NR2F6 program in-house before entering into any potential partnerships. It has granted CheckPoint Immunology an exclusive international license to develop and commercialize Regen's NR2F6 technology for human therapeutic use. The objective of the license grant is the separation of Regen BioPharma’s small molecule technology from its other Intellectual Property (IP) to facilitate any future transactions involving small molecule therapies focused on the NR2F6 checkpoint.

In September, Regen BioPharma reported that its researchers identified a series of small molecule drugs, which inhibit NR2F6 as well as activate human immune cells ex-vivo. Evidence provided by studies suggest that NR2F6 represses the body's immune response against tumors. Therefore, inhibiting NR2F6 may lead to enhanced immune response against cancerous tumor cells.

Harry Lander, Ph.D., MBA, President and Chief Scientific Officer of Regen BioPharma, said, "Based on the known activities of NR2F6, we expect that inhibiting its activity will lead to increased T cell activation. We found that several of our NR2F6 antagonists can activate human immune cells, such as T cells, leading to increased IL-17a production in a concentration-dependent manner."

Earlier this month, Regen BioPharma reported that its researchers determined that its lead NR2F6 small molecule agonist, RG-NAH005, is now ready for testing in animal models of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Regen will pursue this testing as a joint venture (JV) with Zander Therapeutics, Inc. Zander Therapeutics has been granted an exclusive license by Regen to develop and commercialize the Company's NR2F6 IP for veterinary applications.

Regen BioPharma, Inc. (RGBP), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.0115, up 21.05%, on 3,750,456 volume with 86 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 732,009 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.00575/$0.1277.

Victory Marine Holdings Corp. (VMHG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Victory Marine Holdings Corp. (VMHG).

Victory Marine Holdings Corp. (VMHG) is a world-class yacht sales, brokerage and consulting firm with a sprawling inventory of new and used boats, financing, insurance, documentation and recreational marine accessories. Located in Miami, Florida – the “yacht capital of the world” – Victory Marine has over 20 years of experience in an industry hailed as “an American pastime and economic engine” by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (“NMMA”).

According to the NMMA, marine sales reached $39 billion in 2017. To capture its share of this market, Victory Marine has established partnerships with several selective manufacturers and is pursuing opportunities for vertical growth. While the company’s near-term focus is on expansion of its inventory and sales team, its longer-term plans reflect the current state of the broader yacht industry.

Marine sales are at a 10-year high, and though yacht manufacturers are operating at full capacity, delivery of some products can take longer than 18 months. As a result, Victory Marine is taking steps to establish its own pipeline. Management is currently in negotiations with several yacht manufacturers to build the company its own unique, private-label design, which would enable Victory Marine to quickly deliver a superior product to its clients.

Demand for recreational boat trailers is also on the rise, with growth reported for nearly all powerboat segments. Florida continues to ride the top of that crest with sales of powerboats, trailers, and accessories up 10 percent in 2017 to $2.9 billion, followed by Texas ($1.7 billion) and Michigan ($982 million).

Victory Marine’s wholly owned Excalibur Trailers USA subsidiary is set to take advantage of this market, and is approved by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE International) to build custom marine aluminum trailers for recreational boats, as well as for commercial boat transport. Excalibur Trailers USA has filed the necessary paperwork to trademark its brand name and logo and is seeking a suitable manufacturing facility in South Florida for production of powerboat, sailboat, catamaran, powerboat and Jet Ski trailers.

Leading Victory Marine to capture its share of the market is company CEO Orlando Hernandez, whose experience in the marine industry includes negotiation, business planning, investor relations, operations management and sales. He is joined by veteran yacht broker Gary Beaver, who has more than 20 years of successful yacht sales and industry experience. Beaver brings to Victory Marine his portfolio of approximately 25 vessel listings, valued in excess of $10 million.

Victory Marine Holdings Corp. (VMHG), closed the day's trading session at $0.235, up 81.05%, on 41,394 volume with 33 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 42,249 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.084/$0.97.

American Premium Water Corp. (HIPH)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight American Premium Water Corp. (HIPH).

American Premium Water Corporation (OTC: HIPH) announces that it has created a prototype tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)-infused beverage utilizing the Company’s hydro-nano technology, and that it is engaged in discussions with Canadian distributors and U.S. dispensaries.  Upon official launch, American Premium expects to offer the first hydro-nano-infused THC beverage on the market. Also today, the company was highlighted in a report on SinglePoint Inc. (OTC:SING), which recently signed a distribution agreement with the manufactures of Lalpina CBD Water, American Premium Water Corporation.

American Premium Water Corp. (HIPH), headquartered in Playa Vista, California, is a diversified holding company, manufacturer, distributor and marketer of branded consumer products. HIPH, the acronym for “Hi-Power of Hydro,” maintains a portfolio of subsidiaries catering to the health-conscious consumer and luxury fashion brand connoisseur. The company’s two main pillars focus on the development of health and beauty biotech, dedicated to unlocking the power of hydrogen and nanotechnologies. Paired with cannabidiol or “CBD” in a unique beverage, the technology is proving to be a significant health and wellness option for astute consumers.

Among the company’s holdings are:

  • LALPINA Hydro beverages mix hydrogen with nanotechnology into consumer beverages that combine the best of health, nutrition and fitness to deliver short and long-term therapeutic health benefits. LALPINA Hydro utilizes atomic molecular hydrogen, or diatomic hydrogen, which converts antioxidants in the body to H2O to further enhance hydration, which helps increase endurance, reduce lactic acid and melt away fatigue. Over 500 peer-reviewed articles demonstrate hydrogen to have therapeutic potential in essentially every organ of the human body and in 150 different human disease models.
  • LALPINA Hydro CBD is a technically superior CBD-infused beverage. Using hydro and nanotechnology, LALPINA Hydro CBD encapsulates water molecules with cannabidiol molecules, making them infinitely more bioavailable and accelerating delivery to the body’s cells and tissues. Each bottle of LALPINA Hydro CBD contains 3 million nanograms of CBD free from the psychoactive compound THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). HIPH is the first to introduce a hydro-nano CBD-infused beverage on the market, which is a more effective delivery mechanism for administering CBD into the blood stream than traditional beverages or oils, with up to a 90 percent higher absorption rates.

The company recently signed a distribution agreement for its subsidiary, LALPINA Hydro CBD, to sell its beverages to two SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING) e-commerce channels: SingleSeed.com and DIGSHydro.com. SING is a technology and investment company with a portfolio that includes mobile payments, blockchain solutions and ancillary cannabis services. HIPH will drop ship its product to the customers.

HIPH CEO Ryan Fishoff said the e-commerce arrangements “could bring in excess of a million of revenue over the life of the agreement.” The agreement serves as a pillar of the company’s e-commerce distribution strategy, driving awareness and impressions for the LALPINA brand.

In addition, HIPH seeks to market emerging fashion brands and leverage its relationship with classic retail partners while incorporating disruptive blockchain technologies to expand its retail footprint with the following:

  • Gents, a producer of luxury hats and other fine accessories and apparel, was acquired in September 2017. Gents is distributed across many luxury retail outlets including Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, and other high-end channels. The company added the Worthy streetwear brand to its portfolio in June 2018.
  • HIPH also acquired the license to operate the FashionCoinX exchange, a blockchain exchange focused on creating utility tokens for the fashion industry, and created THRD Coin, a multi-branded utility rewards token that is also the first token to be traded on the exchange. The company is leveraging its retail footprint and expertise in the fashion and apparel space with the burgeoning blockchain sector.

American Premium Water Corp. (HIPH), closed the day's trading session at $0.118, up 50.32%, on 77,026,871 volume with 4,077 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 13,960,310 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0035/$0.132.

The water has been a nice success so far and has drove sales of other products listed on SingleSeed as well. SingleSeed supplies multiple different hemp-based CBD products.

Also today, the company was highlighted in a report on distribution partner American Premium Water Corporation’s (OTC: HIPH) announcement that it has created a prototype tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)-infused beverage utilizing the Company’s hydro-nano technology.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) is a diversified holding company with operations in multiple industries and verticals including two high-performing market sectors: legal cannabis and cryptocurrencies. SinglePoint has grown from a full-service mobile technology provider to a recognizable brand with a diverse portfolio of undervalued subsidiaries with multiple revenue streams.

SinglePoint is researching opportunities where it can be an active participant by influencing the strategy and direction of high-potential companies whose verified assets offer attractive possibilities for shareholders. The company is guided by a visionary leadership team with extensive experience in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital.

SinglePoint is bullish on the cannabis industry, bitcoin and blockchain technologies, which is evident in its recent acquisitions and joint-venture announcements. Recent SinglePoint key highlights include:

  • A joint venture with Smart Cannabis Corporation (OTC: SCNA) to license and market Smart Cannabis’ SMART APP. SMART APP enables cannabis growers to measure all aspects of cultivation, from soil nutrient levels to watering cycles and carbon dioxide content in the air. SMART APP will integrate SinglePoint’s bitcoin payment solution to enable growers to process safer and more secure transactions.
  • A joint venture with Global Payout (OTC: GOHE) will build on existing financial technology solutions developed by SinglePoint and Global Payout’s subsidiary MoneyTrac Technology, Inc., to fully optimize the delivery of mobile payment applications for domestic and international organizations.
  • A joint venture with AppSwarm (OTC: SWRM) to start development on a proprietary delivery application that will enable licensed cannabis delivery services and licensed dispensaries to safely make in-home cannabis deliveries.
  • Signed original “Shark Tank” member Kevin Harrington as company spokesman for an innovative, compatible virtual wallet to store any type of cryptocurrency. Harrington recently finished shooting a new national ad campaign featuring SinglePoint and the virtual wallet’s secure method of storing cryptocurrencies.
  • Entered into a letter of intent to acquire 100 percent of Bitcoin Beyond, a premier platform that enables merchants to accept bitcoin payments using existing web-enabled point-of-sale devices.
  • Through SING subsidiary, SingleSeed, the company will soon offer a proprietary cryptocurrency solution that links both cannabis merchants and consumers who seek to take advantage of bitcoin-powered transactions using debit and credit cards. In addition to making bitcoin-backed card purchases possible, the solution enables cannabis dispensaries to digitally track and manage their product inventories, performing tasks like uploading product data, photos and descriptions. The system deducts items automatically from a dispensary’s product listings when a purchase is made. While this fully KYC-AML compliant point-of-sale platform can be utilized for any other retail setting, it will fill a critical need in the underbanked cannabis industry as it continues to seek non-cash payment solutions outside of traditional banking circles.

SinglePoint CEO and founder Greg Lambrecht leads the company in its mission to capture opportunities through an aggressive expansion strategy across a broad range of assets. Lambrecht oversees all company operations including investor relations, leadership of the board of directors, and daily business activities. As the founder of PCI, a leading consumer product distribution company, Lambrecht negotiated agreements with the nation’s largest retail outlets and led PCI through a NASDAQ listed IPO, raising $10 million.

Eric Lofdahl, SinglePoint’s chief technology officer, has more than 20 years of experience in the technology sector including positions in software development, program management, complex system integration and engineering process definition. Prior to SinglePoint, Lofdahl worked at the Boeing Company where he led a team that successfully developed advanced wireless and satellite data products based on commercial technology for the U.S. Air Force.

Ralston graduated cum laude from the WP Carey School of Business at Arizona State University with a degree in Global Agribusiness and a specialization in Professional Golf Management. He is currently recognized by the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) as a Class A Professional.

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

Digitalization has changed our world, most tellingly in the ways we communicate, but also in a hundred other areas; yet it seems to have largely bypassed the energy sector, which, in many parts of the country, still serves up electricity the way it has been doing for over a century. However, in Texas at least, that is changing, as Zenergy Brands, Inc. (OTC: ZNGY) continues on its mission to enrich businesses and consumers through responsible energy use and management.

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (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 $0.0004, even for the day, on 138,325,517 volume with 49 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 16,772,595 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0003/$0.029.

Also today, the company was highlighted in a report explaining how demand for cannabis continues to outpace projections as Canada will officially commenced its legalization of recreational marijuana. According to the Cannabis Business Plan, recreational cannabis could experience annual revenues north of $8 billion by 2020 in Canada. Additionally, the company was highlighted today by pioneer in digital financial market media, 24/7 Market News.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD) one of the largest publicly traded hydroponics supply companies moving into the industrial hemp space, is a product and brand marketing company investing in products and brands with disruptive potential. Sugarmade’s brands include: ZenHydro.com; CarryOutSupplies.com; and BudLife. Headquartered in Monrovia, California, a city within Los Angeles county, Sugarmade has various business operations in diverse marketplaces including packaging and paper goods for various industries, agricultural supplies.

Sugarmade has expanded into the European hydroponics supply market with a growing base of orders taken through Amazon UK. Over the past few financial quarters, Sugarmade has seen revenue growth patterns expand geographically. As recently as mid-2017, the majority of hydroponic-related revenue growth was seen from California and other West Coast marketplaces, however growth is becoming more geographically dispersed among U.S. states where legalization has eased restriction. This movement into the United Kingdom further expands the base of geographic growth areas for Sugarmade.

Sugarmade recently launched a new corporate initiative in the booming industrial hemp and CBD, committing up to $1 million in capital over the next 12 months to invest in Hempistry, Inc., a privately held Nevada corporation. Hempistry has begun planting an ultra-high cannabidiol (CBD) industrial hemp strain on a land option it holds on 23,000 acres of prime Kentucky farmland. The strain of industrial hemp being grown by Hempistry is ultra-rich in CBD but contains less than 0.3 percent of THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis. The U.S. hemp industry is expected to produce well over $1 billion in revenues in 2018, with a compound annual growth rate of 14 percent through 2022, according to the Hemp Business Journal.

Demand for industrial hemp and products derived from hemp is soaring, with no let-up in sight, which the company sees as a “tremendous opportunity to become a supplier to this fast-growing sector,” said Chairman and CEO Jimmy Chan, who is also an advisor and minority shareholder of Hempistry.

Sugarmade’s investment into the market for high-CBD hemp is expected to be highly accretive for common shareholders in two ways. First, Sugarmade’s investment will be in the form of common shares in Hempistry allowing Sugarmade common shareholders to possibly benefit from any future initial public offering of Hempistry. Second, Sugarmade is expected to sign a supply agreement with Hempistry for cultivation supplies, which would be additive to corporate revenues.

Sugarmade has also completed a master market agreement with industry leader BizRight Hydroponics, Inc., a leading marketer and manufacturer of cannabis and hydroponic growth supplies, which offers a range of hydroponics-related products including: HPS grow lights, electronic ballasts, HPS bulbs, nutrient mixes, environmental control products, pH measurement and calibration solutions and storage products. BizRight operates the ZenHydro.com website and other e-commerce properties and sells various products to distributors and retailers. BizRight is expected to produce in excess of $30 million in revenues during 2017, with substantial growth expected for 2018.

Sugarmade division CarryOutSupplies.com, the leader in paper and plastic take-out supplies, serves nationwide customers by offering a wide array of high quality products that are cost-efficient, custom-made and delivered on time. This business unit currently serves 2,000 quick service restaurants, garnering from 30-40 percent of the market share. Sugarmade plans to expand operations via the addition of market share and the introduction of new product offerings.

Management

CEO Jimmy Chan is an experienced business executive instrumental in growing multiple business operations with a strong expertise in international trade and banking, and international manufacturing and importation.

North American demand for legal marijuana is expected to jump dramatically as Canada will officially commenced its legalization of recreational marijuana today. According to the Cannabis Business Plan, recreational cannabis could experience annual revenues north of $8 billion by 2020 in Canada alone. This is forcing industry leaders to reinvest profits into the expansion of cultivation efforts as the consumer base grows and new markets emerge. And this is music the the ears of companies like The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD.TO) (OTCQX:TGODF), which just received its medical sales license from Health Canada pursuant to the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations for its Ancaster, Ontario facility.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF).

Vertically integrated North American pure-play cobalt company First Cobalt’s (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF) (ASX: FCC) Iron Creek property looks to provide promising opportunity in the hunt for cobalt needed to power EVs and the new age of technology. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/5YkLb. Also today, the company was highlighted in a report detailing how the United States — and the entire world — have become critically dependent on cobalt, which is essential for rechargeable lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries to retain and discharge electricity.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: 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 $0.22, up 4.76%, on 207,329 volume with 45 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 219,480 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.198/$1.3041.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (QMCQF).

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) (OTC PINK: QMCQF) (“QMC” or "the Company") is pleased to provide an update on the Company’s 100% owned Irgon Lithium Mine Project located within the prolific Cat Lake-Winnipeg River rare-element pegmatite field of S.E. Manitoba, which also hosts Cabot Corporation’s nearby Tantalum Mining Corporation of Canada (“TANCO”) rare-element pegmatite. Also today, NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, announced the publication of an editorial featuring QMC Quantum Minerals. To view the full publication, titled “Changes in the Lithium Market Drive Growth in Canadian Mining,” visit: http://nnw.fm/6CSrz.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) is a British Columbia based company engaged in the business of acquisition, exploration and development of natural resource properties. QMC’s focus is on creating shareholder value through strategic acquisition and development of high quality lithium, silver, gold, nickel, copper and zinc prospects.

QMC’s current properties are in the Canadian province of Manitoba, one of Canada’s most productive, centrally located mining regions. These resources include the Irgon Lithium Mine project and two Volcanic Massive Sulphide (“VMS”) properties – the Rocky Lake and Rocky-Namew known collectively as the Namew Lake District Project – which contain base metal-rich mineral deposits. Excellent access and well-developed mining infrastructure to the company’s wholly-owned Irgon Lithium Mine Project offers significant value and ramps up the near-term production schedule, putting QMC in a position to take advantage of rising lithium prices.

The region’s historic resource estimate of lithium is well documented in a 1956 Assessment Report developed by a previous owner, Lithium Corporation of Canada Ltd. The project’s historical resource estimate of 1.2 million tons grading 1.51% lithium-oxide over a strike length of 365 meters and to a depth of 213 meters is being updated by QMC through a detailed channel sampling and subsequent drill program.

North Face Software Ltd. recently created an interactive 3-D model of the Irgon Dike utilizing all historical data derived from past drilling and underground work. The 3-D model clearly demonstrates that exploration and underground development has only taken place on the central portion of the dike, leaving significant potential to quickly increase tonnage.

The company’s latest assay results, obtained from 144 channel samples at QMC’s Irgon Lithium Mine Project, provided encouraging and positive results that compare favorably with the historic assays. QMC has received a drill permit from the Sustainable Development Office of the Manitoba government and is in the process of requesting and assessing bids from drilling contractors. The company plans to begin a 2,000-meter drill program to confirm the historic lithium oxide assay results documented in the historic 1953-54 drill program.

QMC’s experienced leadership team includes specialists in mineral exploration, geology, engineering, new business development, marketing and investor relations. The company’s team of qualified advisors includes consultant Bruce E. Goad, P.Geo., who has 40 years of experience in mineral exploration in Canada, Argentina, Asia and Africa. As a Qualified Person, Goad has worked on numerous deposit styles including rare element pegmatites, porphyry, banded iron formation (BIF) gold deposits, skarn, greisens,  and VMS. He has a wide and varied skill set which includes precious, base, industrial and rare metal projects with a sharp focus on gold exploration. Goad is the author of several scholarly publications on pegmatite granites of the southeastern Manitoba region.

The market for lithium has surged over the past three years with prices per metric ton tripling. The world’s rising demand for portable power can easily been seen in the electric vehicle and mobile device industries – both of which use lithium-based, renewable batteries as a power resource. QMC’s high potential prospects and experienced management team, both in geology and corporate finance, put QMC and its shareholders in an excellent position to take advantage of the lithium, precious and base metals markets.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (QMCQF), closed the day's trading session at $0.256726, up 3.02%, on 56,699 volume with 32 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 119,305 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.169/$1.46.

BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTC: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (BCTXF).

BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTCQB: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT), a biotechnology company focused on immuno-oncology, recently announced the completion of several important milestones in 2018. These include obtaining topline safety and efficacy data in a clinical trial, achieving proof of concept and advancing the BriaCell clinical program.

BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTC: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT), based in Berkeley, CA, and headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the development of targeted immunotherapy for advanced breast cancer.

BriaCell hopes to develop and market the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for the treatment of advanced breast cancer.

The results of two previous proof-of-concept clinical trials produced encouraging results in patients with advanced breast cancer. Most notably, one patient with breast cancer that had spread to other sites (metastatic cancer) responded to Bria-IMT™ with a substantial tumor shrinkage in multiple sites including the breast, the lung, soft tissues and even the brain. Similar observations have been confirmed more recently in additional patients, and BriaCell is developing BriaDX™ as a way to identify those patients most likely to respond.

BriaCell has recently completed recruitment of a Phase I/II study (NCT03066947) of Bria-IMT™, the Company’s lead product candidate, in advanced breast cancer patients showing an outstanding safety profile and excellent efficacy. BriaCell is currently enrolling advanced breast cancer patients in a combination therapy trial (NCT03328026) of Bria-IMT™ with Keytruda® (Keytruda® is a registered trademark of Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp., a subsidiary of Merck & Co., Inc.) or Yervoy® (Yervoy® is a registered trademark of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company). For further information on the Phase IIa clinical trials, please visit trial NCT03066947 and trial NCT03328026.

BriaCell’s pipeline also includes Bria-OTS™, the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for advanced breast cancer; and, a companion diagnostic product BriaDX™. By using BriaDX™ to identify and treat the patients who would most likely benefit from their immunotherapies, BriaCell expects to personalize the treatment for the patients, and bring hope to thousands of cancer patients who currently have few-to-no treatment options.

Breast Cancer Statistics

The National Cancer Institute estimates that more than 265,000 new cases of female breast cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. during 2018, and that more than 40,000 women in the U.S. will die from the disease. Approximately 12 percent of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during their lifetime, based on 2013-2015 data.

Using its novel technology platform and strong R&D capabilities, BriaCell believes it has the opportunity to address this market, as well as have the opportunity to develop immunotherapy candidates for other cancer indications.

The global cancer immunotherapy market is expected to reach nearly USD$203 billion by 2025.

BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (BCTXF), closed the day's trading session at $0.08134, even for the day. The average volume for the last 3 months is 15,693 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.068/$0.139.

Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (NUGS)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (NUGS).

Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (NUGS) was featured today in a report from CannabisNewsWire explaining that, while the U.S. customs authorities may be unsure about how to respond once recreational marijuana becomes legal in Canada, social media giant Facebook has taken the step to stop preventing search results from showing in case a user is looking for cannabis pages, articles and organizations, among other kinds of related content.

Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (NUGS), headquartered in Los Angeles, California, is focused on supporting entrepreneurial growth within the fast-growing legal cannabis sector. Through a selective portfolio of subsidiaries, Cannabis Strategic Ventures offers outsourced personnel solutions tailor-made to match the growth dynamics of cannabis cultivators, manufacturers, dispensaries and other cannabis marketplace participants. The company also pursues investment opportunities in the areas of real estate, cultivation, extraction, distribution, packaging, dispensary operations, and branded products within the cannabis space.

The legalization of adult-use sales in California is expected to create nearly 99,000 cannabis industry jobs in the state by 2021, representing about a third of all cannabis jobs nationwide, and 146,000 jobs overall when indirect and induced efforts are considered, according to Arcview Market Research. By 2021, direct cannabis industry employment will top 291,500 FTE jobs, with a total employment effect of nearly 414,000 FTEs across all legal cannabis states, according to the report.

Cannabis Strategic Ventures believes its staffing capabilities will be in a similar state of demand. The company in April 2018 completed a definitive agreement to acquire Worldwide Staffing Group, Inc., which booked approximately $1.5 million in revenues in 2017.

Worldwide will operate within Cannabis Strategic Ventures as an independent and separate wholly owned subsidiary providing strictly non-cannabis related employment and staffing services.

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight VIVO Cannabis Inc. (VVCIF).

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX-V: VIVO, OTCQB: VVCIF) (“VIVO” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Harvest Medicine Inc. (“Harvest Medicine” or “HMED”), has completed the acquisition of Trauma Healing Centres (“THC”) from Organigram Holdings Inc..

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF) is a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality, organic, standardized medicinal cannabis. One of the earliest licensed medical marijuana producers under Canada’s federally-controlled Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), VIVO has five years of operating experience in the burgeoning medical marijuana space through its flagship operation, ABcann Medicinals, Inc. The company recently received its Health Canada license to produce medical cannabis oils and is working toward production of saleable, extracted, finished products that will lead to a final inspection allowing sales of its oils.

“Receipt of the license to produce cannabis oils is a major milestone in our pursuit to provide our medical cannabis patients with additional product formats that can be precisely dosed. The expansion and innovation of our product lines are a top priority for the Company as we continue to serve the needs of our customers, and we anticipate strong demand for our cannabis oil products,” VIVO CEO Barry Fishman said.

VIVO owns and operates a fully functioning 14,500 square foot facility in Napanee, Ontario, which is being doubled in size to produce 1,400 kg of cannabis per year. The company’s expansion plans include adding a seasonal greenhouse and a hybrid, multipurpose facility, capable of producing 31,000 kg of cannabis per year between the two facilities, to be constructed on 65 acres it already owns near the Napanee facility. This additional location is properly zoned with existing infrastructure in place for an eventual 1.2 million square feet of production space.

VIVO has built a reputation over the years for its best-in-class standardized approach to growing cannabis that includes the absence of pesticides and a computer monitored growing technique that provides a consistent, pharmaceutical-grade with high yields. The company’s custom, scalable growing chambers with proprietary lighting can be replicated anywhere in the world, leading to lower production costs. This technique has helped it record a customer retention rate of 94.7 percent alongside 30 percent month-over-month customer growth. When combined with VIVO’s current yield rate, which it has measured at roughly 100 percent greater than the industry average, the company has constructed a strong foundation upon which to build a sizable presence in the global cannabis industry.

This global growth potential is illustrated by VIVO’s partnership with Israel’s Syqe Medical, producer of the world’s first selective-dose pharmaceutical grade medicinal plant inhaler. After visiting VIVO’s production facility, Perry Davidson, founder of Syqe Medical, noted that the company’s production technologies put it “in a class with the best in the world” in its ability to produce standardized pharmaceutical grade cannabis.

VIVO’s recent acquisition of Harvest Medicine Inc. represents further progress toward the company’s goal of becoming a vertically integrated medical cannabis company. Harvest Medicine is one of the fastest growing medical cannabis clinics in Canada – adding over 1,200 new patients monthly from a single location – with an aggressive expansion plan and a patient-focused approach that perfectly aligns with VIVO’s philosophy of quality and innovation.

VIVO’s seasoned management team, board of directors and advisory board features well over a century of combined industry experience. Fishman, who has over 20 years of experience as a business leader, previously served as CEO of both Teva Canada and Taro Canada, as vice president of marketing at Eli Lilly Canada, and as past chair of the Canadian Generic Manufacturers Association. He most recently served as CEO of international specialty pharmaceutical company Merus Labs.

Notably, VIVO also has access to the ‘Father of Cannabis Research’, Raphael Mechoulam, PhD, through its board of advisors. An organic chemist and professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mechoulam was the first scientist to isolate both cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). He has received more than 25 prestigious academic awards, including the Rothschild Prize in Chemical Sciences and Physical Sciences in 2012.

With more than 65 acres of growth capacity, a healthy cash balance to fund upcoming construction efforts, steady sales growth, industry-leading yield rates and an established operations team in place, VIVO is well positioned to compete in the rapidly expanding Canadian cannabis industry and beyond.

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (VVCIF), closed the day's trading session at $0.97, off by 5.83%, on 621,040 volume with 541 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 591,050 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.73/$3.29.
