Warrior Met Coal Inc. (HCC)

The Online Investor, MarketBeat, QualityStocks, StreetInsider, Market Report, Zacks, The Street, Trades Of The Day, Daily Trade Alert, DividendStocks, BUYINS.NET, StockMarketWatch, InvestorPlace, Schaeffer's, StreetAuthority Daily, MarketClub Analysis, AllPennyStocks, Market Intelligence Center Alert, SmarTrend Newsletters, Street Insider, Dividend Report, TopStockAnalysts, CRWEFinance and TradersPro reported earlier on Warrior Met Coal Inc. (HCC), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

A recent report has found that if we are to meet the objectives set out the 2016 Paris agreement, we need to shut down coal-fired plants globally at a faster rate while also halting the construction of new plants. The report, compiled by the Global Energy Monitor, stated that all coal power plants would need to be closed by 2040 with no new ones being built for the goals stipulated in the agreement to be achieved.

Global Energy Monitor is a nongovernmental organization that studies the evolving global energy landscape, creating reports, databases and interactive tools.

Developed economies will also be expected to close their plants about 10 years earlier than the worldwide phase-out. This will require nations in the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development to close 60 GW of coal-power capacity annually until 2030, which is roughly 4.5 times the amount recorded in 2022.  Additionally, non-OECD nations will need to close 91GW of coal power capacity annually until 2040.

The international survey also found that while the total amount of planned and existing coal plant capacity outside China dropped in 2022, phase-out has slowed in comparison to prior years.

The report’s lead author, Flora Champenois, stated that at this point, the transition away from new and existing coal plants wasn’t happening as fast as it needed to avoid climate chaos. Champenois also noted that the unveiling of new coal projects would only lead to steeper commitments and cuts in the future.

In 2022, the existing fleet of coal plants around the globe grew by about 19 GW, with most of the growth being commissioned in China. China also plans to significantly increase its coal use with plans to build more plants in an effort to increase its power capacity by 126 GW, which will counterbalance the capacity retired across the European Union and the United States combined in 2022.

Last year, the U.S. retired more than 13GW of coal power capacity while closures in the European Union stood at 2.2GW in the same period. It should be noted that retired capacity in the EU dropped greatly from 14.6 GW in 2021, primarily in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which caused the cost of gas-fired power generation to rise considerably.

Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air’s lead analyst, Lauri Myllyvirta, added that clean solutions would need to be deployed and existing policies would need to be enforced better to restrict the launch of new coal projects.

Given the high demand that coal extraction companies such as Warrior Met Coal Inc. (NYSE: HCC) are seeing, it won’t be easy to completely shift away from coal energy in the near-term.

Warrior Met Coal Inc. (HCC), closed Friday's trading session at $37.83, off by 2.1216%, on 531,236 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 10.454M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $26.11/$42.95.

Fisker Inc. (FSR)

(FSR), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency is anticipated to introduce tighter emissions controls to encourage significant reductions in emissions produced by motor vehicles as part of a strategy to encourage carmakers to significantly switch to electric cars.

If these controls were to be put into effect, the light-duty cars with model years 2027–2032 are anticipated to be covered by the proposed regulations. According to environmental organizations and several carmakers, the idea will enable at least one-half of the country’s vehicle fleet to be electric by 2030, in keeping with the objective set down in 2021 by the president.

In 2032, the regulations would guarantee that the number of electric cars account for 64%–67% of all cars in the United States, even though The Washington Post noted that these percentages in the rule were the most restrictive of numerous choices.

The proposal by the EPA was first covered by the New York Times. This follows California’s air regulators’ decision to ban new conventional car sales by 2035 and establish a series of interim goals to eliminate them.

In December, the market share of electric vehicles among new car sales approached 10%. In a document released last week prior to the unveiling of the new guidelines, the Automotive Innovation Alliance, a significant group in the industry, observed that as demand for electric vehicles grows, so do the costs.

To combat global warming, General Motors and Ford, among other car producers, have increased sales campaigns and other programs for electric vehicles. Ford has promised to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by the year 2050 while establishing interim goals to deal with global warming issues more quickly, in addition to declaring a global goal to stop selling conventional vehicles by 2035. General Motors plans to achieve carbon neutrality by the year 2040.

However, environmental organizations claim that greater action is required to reduce tailpipe emissions. In a statement applauding the anticipated EPA move, Fred Krupp claimed that tailpipe emissions harm the oxygen we inhale and exacerbate severe weather.

The fight for safer weather, improved air quality, and much more made employment in the United States possible is currently underway.

According to the memo from the Automotive Innovation Alliance, keen insight into the analysis of the market’s preparedness is necessary. The alliance continues to state that the factors that will ultimately decide the viability of the electric vehicle transition cannot be addressed by regulatory demands alone.

A protracted public opinion period will be held for the EPA’s proposed standards, and changes may be made prior to adoption.

It remains to be seen what effect those proposed changes by the EPA will impact the sales volumes of EV makers such as Fisker Inc. (NYSE: FSR) in the years to come.

Fisker Inc. (FSR), closed Friday's trading session at $5.02, off by 8.2267%, on 10,453,680 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 689,034 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $5.00/$12.79.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX).

The 2023 Maryland General Assembly recently reached the policy goal the state has been edging towardfor years, approving regulations for recreational marijuana sales.Maryland residents aged 21 years and older will be able to purchaserecreational marijuana starting on July 1, 2023, if Governor WesMoore signs the legislation into law, which he is certain to do.Cannabis was made legal in the state constitution by a ballot referendum that was approved byvoters in November. Legislators promptly carried out theirdirectives, prioritizing the historic reforms at the top of theirto-do list even before the first session. The comprehensivelegislation established a framework for governmental monitoring andresolved a number of business-related issues, such as the types andnumber of marijuana licenses that can be issued as well as theamount of sales tax that must be charged by businesses. Overall,politicians from both chambers worked together to achieve two key objectives: stop unlawful salesbefore the deadline of July 1, 2023, and restore tax income andeconomic opportunity to areas that have been disproportionatelydisadvantaged by marijuana prohibition and punishment. Each purposeis interwoven throughout the entire 100-page document. As cannabisproduction ramps up to meet the growing demand for recreationalmarijuana in the state, plenty of opportunities will be created fornumerous ancillary companies that follow in the footsteps ofentities such as Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX), which specialize in availing what cannabis industry players needto serve their clients.

Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX) is in the business of selling and distributing self-contained, automated, indoor “micro-farms” called Grow Pods, along with related equipment and supplies. Additionally, the company designs and sells patented proprietary medical-grade plastic containers, known as the Medtainer®, that store and grind pharmaceuticals, herbs, teas and other solids or liquids.

ACTX is the leading distributor of Grow Pods. With a controlled environment, food and herbs can be grown without pesticides, harmful chemicals or risk of pathogen contamination, and with low energy consumption. Restaurants, grocery stores, non-profits, MSOs and entrepreneurs can use Grow Pods to ensure a fresh supply of ultra-clean produce year-round.

The company entered the Grow Pod business in October 2020 with its acquisition of all shares of Advanced Container Technologies Inc., a California corporation. As of February 28, 2022, ACTX is exploring the acquisition of the assets and the assumption of some or all of the liabilities of GP Solutions Inc., the developer and manufacturer of Grow Pods, for which ACTX is currently the sole U.S. distributor.

Because Grow Pods can be located almost anywhere, produce can be grown closer to the point of consumption and harvested at its peak, providing nutritious fruits and vegetables where needed. Indoor micro-farms, utilizing a practice known as vertical farming, have attracted the attention of governments and universities, which are now promoting vertical farming as a way to combat food insecurity and inequities.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has stated that vertical farming “is no longer a futuristic concept.” The department is enthusiastic about vertical farming, particularly those utilizing repurposed shipping containers, such as Grow Pods. Arizona State University reports that vertical farming reduces water use by 90 percent compared to conventional farming but produces 10 times the crop yield.


Grow Pods

One of the company’s main business units is focused on selling advanced, self-contained hydroponic containers called Grow Pods. These unique and innovative automated systems are essentially micro-farms that can be placed virtually anywhere and, with their controlled and specially filtered environment, allow cultivation of a wide variety of crops, 365 days a year. The Grow Pod controlled environment offers major advantages for the production of high-value crops. The ability to grow year-round and the ability to cultivate in a smaller footprint using less water and power are some of the primary advantages of the system. Grow Pods offer constant temperature, humidity and airflow control, as well as automated watering and lighting schedules for optimal growth and minimal labor requirements, regardless of crop.


ACTX meets the needs of the pharmaceutical and medical markets, including the cannabis and hemp industries, with patented packaging systems.

The company’s flagship container product is the patented Medtainer®, a child resistant, medical-grade herb container and grinder that is water-tight, air-tight and smell proof. Packaging in the cannabis industry is critical, with numerous stringent regulations about how cannabis products must be packaged and labeled. ACTX also offers custom-branded, compliant vacuum seal bags and other retail container solutions.

Equipment and Supplies

ACTX markets and sells two principal products: Grow Pods, which are specially modified insulated shipping containers manufactured by GP Solutions Inc., in which plants, herbs and spices may be grown hydroponically in a controlled environment, and Medtainers®, which may be used to store pharmaceuticals, herbs, teas and other solids or liquids and can grind solids and shred herbs. The company also markets and sells various products related to Grow Pods and the Medtainer®, as well as providing private labeling and branding services for purchasers of Medtainers® and certain related products.

GP Solutions manufactures and sells other products, such as humidity controllers and LED lighting systems for vertical farming. The company’s specially designed lighting panels are programmed to emit the exact wavelength of light that each crop requires. The system has a daybreak-to-nightfall feature that gives plants the proper chromatic signals to grow rapidly and fruitfully. High efficiency LED light strips supply the crops with a red and blue light spectrum required for photosynthesis in the spectrum that plants need most.

Market Overview

The global vertical farming market is expected to reach $33.02 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research. The market is forecast to expand at a CAGR of 25.5 percent from 2022 to 2030, according to Grand View. Escalating production of biopharmaceutical products, including cannabis, is anticipated to drive the market. The building-based segment of the market is expected to register a significant CAGR of 27.8 percent over the projected period. In addition, the climate control segment is expected to see high growth.

The global cannabis packaging market is expected to reach $14.34 billion by 2028, according to analysis by Reports and Data. The analysis forecasts 1,700 percent growth in cannabis users by the end of 2026, with packaging likely observing a whopping 26.42 percent growth in the forecast period. There are significant barriers to entry in the cannabis packaging market, giving an advantage to companies already established in the sector.

BMR holds the Bonanza and East Fork properties located in the historic cobalt-copper-gold Blackbird mining district (Blackbird Mine from 1902-1963 produced 17Mt grading 0.7% Co, 1.4% Cu, and 1 g/t Au) located about 30 kilometers west of Salmon, Idaho. The Bonanza project is immediately adjacent to Jervois Global’s Idaho Cobalt Operations, the United States’ only operating primary cobalt mine. At Bonanza, there are seven mineralized sites within an area over three kilometers wide that extends along a gabbro dyke striking continuously for over six kilometers northward from Noranda’s historic Blackbird Cobalt/Copper mine. The showings on the project are Bonanza Copper Tunnels, Tinker’s Pride, Bonanza Copper #25, Indian Creek, Gray Copper, Blackrock #4 and Papoose #’s 1-4.

From 2018-2021, BMR’s Bonanza Exploration included 550 line-km of airborne magnetics and radiometrics followed up by surface exploration that included rock sampling, soil sampling, channel sampling of historic workings and 3.6km of time domain induced polarization geophysics.

The two properties cover 12 significant cobalt-copper prospects within the known mineralized zone. Both of the BMR Idaho cobalt belt properties host excellent high-grade discovery potential.

South Korea – Graphite

BMR has 100% ownership of the Guemam and Taehwa graphite exploration projects containing high-purity flake graphite deposits. Both assets are past-producing mines with existing local infrastructure and near-term production potential.

Nevada – Lithium

The company’s Amargosa lithium project is in the southern Basin & Range province and central Mojave Desert of Nevada. It is an early-stage exploration opportunity in a favorable region that hosts numerous lithium occurrences, including the Clayton Valley lithium deposit owned by Cypress Development Corp., as well as a major nearby lithium brine mine currently in production called the Silver Peak mine held by Albermarle Corp., one of the world’s largest lithium producers.

Market Opportunity

Near-term forecasts for the copper sector are extremely bullish, with stalwart Wall Street firms such as Goldman Sachs and Bank of America projecting record highs in the coming months. A combination of short-term supply deficits and long-term energy transition demand are expected to buck the downward pressures that have impacted copper prices in recent years.

Goldman in December 2022 forecast a 178K metric ton deficit in the copper market in 2023, causing the firm to raise its 12-month target to $11K/ton and its average price for calendar 2023 to $9,750/ton.

With China likely to continue accelerating efforts to restock depleted inventories in the wake of its COVID-19 reopening and a sustained push toward electrification around the globe placing a strain on supply, BMR is uniquely positioned to capitalize through the anticipated restart of operations at its Punitaqui copper mine.

The Decarbonization Movement

Soaring and unstable energy/fuel costs continue to highlight the importance of rethinking the traditional approach to powering homes, from top to bottom. While most everyone is well aware of the remarkable, multi-trillion-dollar opportunity the electric vehicle transformation offers to investors (in addition to the benefits to the climate problem), few recognize that the all-electric home market is as large as electric vehicles and equally important to reducing carbon emissions.

U.S. energy expenditures clocked in at $3,891 per person in 2018, leading to estimated spending of $1.3 trillion on energy that year alone. Despite this, fewer than 3% of U.S. homes are currently powered by solar. This number is poised to increase exponentially as both new and existing residences transition to zero carbon models.

GST estimates that if all the homes in America were powered by its technology, carbon pollution could be reduced by an estimated 1.9 trillion pounds per year, greatly reducing the negative impacts on our climate.


The GeoSolarPlus (“GSP”) system combines solar power, geothermal ground-sourced energy and other clean energy technologies into one fully integrated system.
Key benefits of the GSP system include:

  • Making a real planet-changing difference in reducing air pollution
  • Eliminating or significantly reducing homeowners’ future utility bills

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) is a global innovator in drug delivery platforms. The company’s patented technology, DehydraTECH™, improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) enter the bloodstream by promoting healthier oral ingestion methods and increasing the effectiveness of fat-soluble active molecules. DehydraTECH promotes fast-acting, less expensive and more effective oral drug delivery and has been thoroughly evaluated through in vivo, in vitro and human clinical testing.

DehydraTECH is covered by 21 issued and more than 50 pending patents in over 40 countries around the world. Lexaria’s first patent was issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in October 2016 (US 9,474,725 B1), providing 20 years of patent protection expiring June 2034. Multiple patents have been awarded since then and are expected in the future.

Lexaria has a collaborative research agreement with the National Research Council (NRC), the Canadian government’s premier research and technology organization. The company has filed for patent protection for specific delivery of nicotine, vitamins, NSAIDs, testosterone, estrogen, cannabinoids, terpenes, PDE5 inhibitors (with brand names like Viagra), tobacco and more.

Lexaria began developing DehydraTECH in 2014 and has since continued to strengthen and broaden the technology. The company has no plans to create or sell Lexaria-branded products containing controlled substances. Instead, Lexaria licenses its technology to other companies around the world to offer consumers the best possible performance across an array of ingestible product formats.

The company’s technology is best thought of as an additional layer that providers of consumer supplements, prescription and non-prescription drugs, nicotine and CBD products can utilize to improve the effectiveness of their own existing or planned new offerings. Lexaria has licensed DehydraTECH to multiple companies, including a world-leading tobacco producer for the research and development of smokeless, oral-based nicotine products, and for use in industries that produce cannabinoid beverages, edibles and oral products.

DehydraTECH is suitable for use with a wide range of product formats including pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, consumer packaged goods and over-the-counter capsules, pills, tablets and oral suspensions.

DehydraTECH Technology

Lexaria’s DehydraTECH is designed specifically for formulating and delivering lipophilic (fat-soluble) drugs and active ingredients. DehydraTECH increases their effectiveness and improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients enter the bloodstream. The major benefits to a subject ingesting a DehydraTECH-enabled drug or consumer product can be summarized by the following:

  • Speeds up delivery – the effects of the product are felt by the subject in just minutes.
  • Increases bioavailability – the technology is much more effective at delivering a drug or product into the bloodstream.
  • Increases brain absorption – animal testing suggests significant improvement in the quantity of drug delivered across the blood-brain barrier.
  • Improves drug potency – more of the ingested product is made available to the body, so lower doses are required to achieve the desired effect.
  • Reduces drug administration cost – lower doses mean lower overall drug costs.
  • Masks unwanted taste – the technology eliminates or reduces the need for sweeteners.

Lexaria has demonstrated in animal studies a propensity for DehydraTECH technology to elevate the quantity of drug delivered across the blood-brain barrier by as much as 1,900 percent, initiating additional new patent applications and opening possibilities for improved drug delivery.

Since 2016, DehydraTECH has repeatedly demonstrated, with cannabinoids and nicotine, the ability to increase bio-absorption by up to five to 10 times, reduce time of onset from one to two hours to just minutes, and mask unwanted tastes. The technology is to be further evaluated for additional orally administered bioactive molecules, including antivirals, cannabinoids, vitamins, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and nicotine.

Market Outlook

Lexaria’s ongoing research and development efforts are mainly focused on development of product candidates across several key segments:

  • Oral Cannabinoids – a market estimated to be worth $18.4 billion in 2021 and expected to reach $46.2 billion by 2025.

IGC Pharma Inc. (NYSE American: IGC)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight IGC Pharma Inc. (NYSE American: IGC).

Germany shipped an unprecedented 25,000 kilos (27.6 tons) of medicinal and experimental cannabis last year, up 19% from 2021, per the Federal Drug Institute andMedicinal Devices (BfArM). But it also represents the smallestincrease since BfArM started disclosing information on cannabisimports in 2018. Due to the potential for inferior products orre-exportation to various nations, a sizable fraction of theshipments may have failed to reach patients. The German NationalAssociation of Statutory Health Insurance Funds claims that theincrease in imports is also at odds with the constant statesubsidies for medical marijuana products, which have been steady since 2020. Industry sources also assert that the quantity of cannabis sentto pharmacies is far less than that which is shipped into Germany.Only eight tons of medicinal cannabis had been shipped topharmacies in Germany as of September 2022, a significant decreasefrom the 19 tons shipped during the comparable period the yearprior. It is notable that Germany currently allows the use ofcannabis for medical purposes. This recognition of the therapeuticvalue of marijuana has given rise to several for-profit entitiessuch as IGC Pharma Inc. (NYSE American: IGC) that are going a step further to develop pharmaceutical-gradeformulations from this plant.

IGC Pharma Inc. (NYSE American: IGC), through subsidiary IGC Pharma, develops, patents, and markets advanced THC-based drug formulations for the treatment of symptoms related to various diseases including but not limited to Alzheimer’s disease, Tourette syndrome, chronic pain, and pet seizures.

IGC’s leading drug candidate, IGC-AD1, has completed Phase 1 of a safety and tolerability trial and entered Phase 2 trials for treating agitation in patients with Alzheimer’s dementia, the first study in humans of a natural tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) compound plus another molecule ( As of September 2022, the IGC trial is the only ongoing Phase 2 trial of a natural THC-based formulation on Alzheimer’s patients.

The company’s other drug candidate, TGR-63, is an enzyme inhibitor that has shown in preclinical trials the potential to reduce neurotoxicity in Alzheimer’s cell lines. Both drug candidates have shown their ability to ameliorate beta amyloid plaques in Alzheimer’s cell lines and improve memory in Alzheimer’s mouse models. Beta amyloid plaques are a key hallmark of Alzheimer’s and an important target of Alzheimer’s pharmaceutical drug development.

Neuro Psychiatric Symptoms (NPS) are not only debilitating for Alzheimer’s patients; they also place an immense emotional burden on their caregivers. Beyond reducing symptoms, IGC-AD1’s active molecules and TGR-63 have also shown promise in preclinical trials to reduce important hallmarks of Alzheimer’s including plaques and tangles, as well as improving the treatment of memory loss.

Over the past eight years, the IGC team has amassed a deep knowledge of cannabinoid science, including extraction, isolation, purification, and development. The company’s strategy is to leverage its unique end-to-end capabilities, platform, and expertise to develop a class-leading program and bring it to market quickly and cost efficiently to treat neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

The company also has a family of cannabidiol (CBD)-based consumer products ( such as pain relief creams, pain relief gels, purpose gummies, tinctures, and capsules targeting women’s wellness, with a particular focus on premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and dysmenorrhea (period cramps). In addition, the company targets individuals that need sleep-aids with its specially formulated low melatonin cannabinoid gummies.

IGC has also introduced a low-calorie CBD- and caffeine-infused energy beverage brand ( that is currently available for purchase. The company’s brands are founded on the belief that effective natural solutions should be affordable and accessible to everyone. As the demand for natural products targeting women’s wellness and energy drinks continue to grow, these products are seeing strong traction in the market.

The company operates three facilities – a large GMP (Good Manufacturing Production Standards) certified facility that includes extraction, distillation, and manufacturing, in Washington State; a GMP-211 (pharmaceutical) grade facility in Maryland; and a facility licensed for controlled substances including cannabis in Bogota, Colombia, with complete access to legal licensed cannabis where the company conducts its testing.

In addition, the company’s development under Magistral Formulations is approved by INVIMA (Colombia National Food and Drug Surveillance Institute) to treat neurological disorders, non-oncological chronic pain, and mental disorders.

IGC’s intellectual property (IP) portfolio comprises of eight patents that it controls and seven patent applications. The portfolio includes #11,446,276, a patent for extreme low dose THC treatment of Alzheimer’s that was granted in September 2022.

The company is headquartered in Potomac, Maryland.


IGC-AD1 is the company’s leading drug candidate for the treatment and relief of Alzheimer’s symptoms. A significant amount of research on Alzheimer’s cell lines has shown that the active agents in IGC-AD1 reduce plaques and neurofibrillary tangles that are the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s. Further, micro-dosing of THC, as shown in cell lines, could increase the functioning of mitochondria and potentially promote the growth of new neural pathways (neurogenesis). The research shows that micro-dosing of THC affects the brain radically differently from the normal higher dosing of THC.

While there is a significant body of research showing that THC is neuro-toxic at normal levels of dosing, micro-dosing of THC has been shown to be non-toxic to neurons. With the results of these preclinical studies, the company developed an oral formulation, IGC-AD1. The company recently completed a safety and tolerability Phase 1 trial on Alzheimer’s patients and has initiated a Phase 2, multi-site, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial of the safety and efficacy of IGC-AD1 on agitation in participants with dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease at sites in the U.S. and Canada. IGC expects the Phase 2 trial to take between 9 and 12 months to complete, barring unknown factors such as, for example, a resurgence of COVID and the enforcement of lockdowns and travel restrictions.

With further successful trials and FDA approvals, IGC hopes to bring a drug based on natural THC as an effective treatment for agitation in Alzheimer’s to market.


The company’s other molecule, TGR-63, has been shown to reduce the neurotoxicity that impacts memory loss in preclinical trials with mice. On a dose dependent manner, transgenic Alzheimer’s mice treated with TGR-63 showed improvement in memory relative to control.

Both drug candidates, IGC-AD1 and TGR-63, have shown their ability to reduce the brain plaques associated with memory loss in Alzheimer’s in mice.

With further successful trials and FDA approvals, IGC hopes to bring TGR-63 as a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease to market.

Market Opportunity

Alzheimer’s disease impacts over 55 million people worldwide and about 5.5 million individuals in the U.S. Over 70% of these patients face debilitating symptoms, including anxiety, depression, and agitation (Mendez, 2021). Agitation in dementia patients can include excessive physical movement and verbal activity, restlessness, pacing, belligerence, aggression, screaming, crying, and wandering.

In 2020, the estimated healthcare costs for Alzheimer’s disease in the U.S. were $305 billion. Medicare and Medicaid covered about 70% of those costs, leaving considerable burden on patients and families. At the current rate of growth of Alzheimer’s and other dementia diagnoses, those costs are estimated to reach over $1 trillion by 2050.

Currently, there are no FDA-approved medications to alleviate the symptoms of dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease, providing a tremendous opportunity for formulations that can have an impact on quality of life and disease progression.

SideChannel continues expanding its service offerings, workforce and customer base, attracting over 20 virtual CISOs to serve across industries including fintech, biotech, healthcare, manufacturing, legal, defense and technology services. The company is based in Worcester, Massachusetts.

Market Opportunity

An analysis from ReportLinker states that the global cybersecurity market is expected to grow from an estimated value of $173.5 billion in 2022 to $266.2 billion by 2027, recording a CAGR of 8.9% for the period.

The increased number of data breaches worldwide, the ability of malicious actors to operate from anywhere in the world, the links between cyberspace and physical systems, and the difficulty of reducing vulnerabilities and consequences in complex cyber networks are some factors driving cyber security market growth, according to the report.

A lack of cybersecurity professionals and the budget constraints among SMBs and start-ups in developing economies are expected to hinder market growth. Cybercriminals are using automated techniques to attack SMBs’ networks to take advantage of their weak security infrastructures. To save money, time and resources, SMBs are seeking cybersecurity solutions.


Enclave expands upon SideChannel’s cybersecurity service offerings by solving a pervasive network security problem with a simple tool.

A comprehensive cloud and network security solution, Enclave enables IT teams to contain breaches faster, reduce network outages, minimize latency and strengthen overall security defense.
