Vision Industries Corp. (VIIC)
OTCPicks reported yesterday on Vision Industries Corp. (VIIC), HotShotStocks did last week and we are highlighting the Company as "One to Watch" this week here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Vision Industries Corp. is a developer of zero emission electric/hydrogen hybrid powered vehicles and turnkey hydrogen fueling systems. The Company's proprietary electric/hydrogen hybrid drive system combines the superior acceleration of a battery powered electric vehicle with the extended range provided by a hydrogen fuel cell. Their system offers lower lifetime cost of ownership. Vision Industries has their headquarters in El Segundo, California. The Company's shares list on the OTC Bulletin Board.
Vision Industries' Zero Emission Terminal Tractor (ZETT) is a zero emission, electric/hydrogen hybrid, 130,000 lbs. gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) terminal tractor designed to work a double shift before refueling. The ZETT is jointly developed by Vision and the Capacity of Texas.
In November 2011, Vision Industries announced that they won the Los Angeles Business Journal - Patrick Soon-Shiong Innovation Award, which took place in November at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. The Company's consideration for the award was based on their cutting-edge efforts in producing a zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell-powered/electric hybrid Class 8 truck, the Tyrano™. This truck provides a clean-tech transportation solution for moving containerized cargo to-and-from ports of entry and regional logistical hubs.
Powered by a 536 HP engine creating 3,300 ft./lbs. of torque, the Tyrano™ is a premier drayage vehicle. Drayage is the transport of containerized cargo by specialized trucking companies between ocean ports or rail ramps and shipping docks. With a standard H2 fuel tank configuration, the Tyrano™ can cover 200 miles (400 miles on an extended configuration) over an 8-hour shift. There is no internal combustion engine, which means no carbon footprint, no carcinogenic particulates, and no noise pollution. Vision integrates the latest technologies – such as remote diagnostics to in-dash touch screen displays - to control and monitor all essential systems and their performance.
Vision's initial target markets are the trucking fleet operators, warehouse operators, shipping operators, and rail yard operators in the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach - the largest port of entry system in the United States. On July 22, 2011, Vision delivered the first Hydrogen/Electric Hybrid Class 8 Truck to the Port of Long Beach.
Last Friday, Vision Industries announced that they finalized the purchase order agreement for 100 Tyrano Class 8 Trucks with Total Transportation Services, Inc. (TTS-I) of Rancho Dominquez, California. The purchase agreement also allows TTS-I to purchase an additional three hundred Vision trucks, bringing the total value of the contract to approximately $108 million dollars.
Mr. Martin Schuermann, CEO of Vision Industries said, "It has been a long road from our letter of intent signed a year ago to the closing of definite agreements. However, it was a very productive process in which we could identify specific needs of the trucking industry and translate those needs into our technology. I am looking forward to a long relationship between Vision and TTS-I."

International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO). Today, International Stem Cell Corp. closed trading at $0.38, off by 8.43%, on 19,950 volume with 20 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 185,187, and its 52-week low/high is $0.3412/1.20.
International Stem Cell Corp. announced today, that several of its leading scientists will present experimental results from three of ISCO’s pre-clinical therapeutic programs, including a Parkinson’s disease treatment, a stem-cell based cornea replacement technology, and in vivo/vitro analysis of another cellular technology for liver repair.
International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO) specializes in the therapeutic applications of human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSCs) and the development and commercialization of cell-based research and cosmetic products. The company was first to perfect the natural phenomenon of parthenogenesis, which utilizes unfertilized human eggs to create hpSCs. These stem cells, created in a particular form called HLA homozygous, can be immune-matched to millions of people regardless of sex or racial background, with minimal expectation of immune rejection after transplantation.
hpSCs are as pluripotent as embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and have significant therapeutic potential but their creation does not involve the destruction of a viable human embryo – thus sidestepping the controversy and ethical dilemmas associated with the use of human embryonic stem cells. Different from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSs), hpSCs do not involve manipulation of gene expression back to a less differentiated stage – a practice that may become a safety or regulatory obstacle in clinical applications.
A relatively small number of hpSC lines can offer the potential of producing the first true stem cell bank, UniStemCell, which ISCO intends to create as a means of serving populations across the globe. The company's scientists are currently focused on using hpSC to treat severe diseases of the eye, nervous system, and liver, for which cell therapy has been clinically proven but is limited due to the unavailability of safe human cells.
In addition to its therapeutic focus, ISCO also provides two revenue streams. Firstly through its subsidiary Lifeline Cell Technology, specialized cells and growth media for biological research around the world, and secondly its subsidiary Lifeline Skin Care, the company manufactures and sells anti-aging skincare products utilizing an extract from the hpSC and by leveraging the latest discoveries in the fields of stem cell biology, nanotechnology, and skin cream formulation technology.

International Stem Cell Corp. this morning announced that several of its leading scientists will be presenting experimental results from three of ISCO’s pre-clinical therapeutic programs at the 15th Annual Meeting of American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy, in Philadelphia at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 17th.
Firstly, the application of A9 dopaminergic neurons derived from human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSC) for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Demonstrating functional dopaminergic neurons in vivo represents an important milestone towards the goal of creating well characterized populations of cells that could be used to develop a treatment for Parkinson’s.
Secondly, the differentiation of hpSC and embryonic stem cells into cornea-like constructs for use in transplantation therapy and the in vitro study of ocular drug absorption. There are approximately ten million people worldwide who are blind as a result of damage to their cornea. Generating human corneas from a pluripotent stem cell source should increase the likelihood that people will receive treatment in the future even in the absence of suitable tissue from eye banks.
Lastly, the in vivo and in vitro characterization of immature hepatocyte derived from hpSC. Such cells could be used to develop a treatment for individuals with a liver that has been damaged by disease or sufferers of genetic disorders that inhibit normal liver function. In both cases, implanting healthy hepatocyte cells could treat the underlying disease and prolong the life of the individual.
“These results not only show the progress we have made in these important programs, but also demonstrate the broad application of human parthenogenetic stem cells in the development of treatments for incurable diseases,” stated Dr. Ruslan Semechkin, Vice President of Research and Development.

Moments ago, Dynasty Limousine, a full service Luxury Transportation and Limousine firm covering the southeast United States, released its quarterly report for Q1 2012.
The period represents the best start in the company’s 14-year history. Revenues, net profit, and assets were up over the same period one year ago.
“Dynasty added many new vehicles to its fleet in the latter part of 2011 and this helped contribute to a great start in 2012,” stated Pierce Fleming, Dynasty’s CFO. “Our clients are excited about our new offerings, and we have plans to further upgrade our fleet and services throughout the year. We are continuing to offer the highest level of service that Dynasty is known for, even as the company grows and adds additional clients. We would like to thank our professional team of dispatchers, chauffeurs, and office personnel for providing a great experience to our valued customers.”

ProGaming Platforms has developed an ingenious framework for massive multiplayer online gaming that allows authenticated, head-to-head competitive play, with complete scoring, results, and stats. Able to function with almost any online skill game (and be licensed by any online gaming provider), the PPTF platform fuses pay-to-play online gaming with the ability for winners to receive monetary rewards, and all within a sophisticated architecture that prevents cheating and skill-level disparity, so that veterans cannot exploit novices (a common problem).
Complete with a proprietary billing system that is simple and easy to setup with third-party gaming servers (as well as typical commercial billing systems), the PPTF platform brings tight, zero-middleware accounting security together with the flexibility needed to handle multiple game types/billing scenarios (CTF, DM, TDM, etc.). A statistically determined ranking system is aggregated for each player based on accumulated data from play, this data is stored in a server side file, and the ranking system is then used to accurately/quickly pair opponents of similar skill levels, circumventing an age old problem in online gaming, while offering a silver-bullet solution that can supercharge the player base.
The real trick to getting a game viral is to have something players really enjoy and can come back for again and again. Competitive online gaming is already very popular and PPTF has a wonderful solution for easily getting players setup so they can simply pay a fee to compete and then potentially win back their entry fee, plus that of the opponent(s). This is an incredible draw; from bragging rights and the exhilaration of victory to rewards for success, the PPTF platform infuses existing games with functionality that most gamers will find irresistible.
With companies like Zynga (some 227M actively monthly users) looking to potentially get into online gambling (Mar 5 – CEO, Mark Pincus confirmed ZNGA plans to enter online gambling space), and the more recent announcement (Mar 21) of Zynga’s acquisition of extremely popular “Draw Something” (a sort of massively multiplayer Pictionary for the real-time connectivity age) developer, OMGPOP, for a reported $200M, the potential for PPTF is obvious. The $200M OMGPOP acquisition by ZNGA marks the largest move to date for ZYnga, which has dominated emergent mobile territory with leading products like “Words With Friends” (coming in at second largest purchase, with the $53M paid for publisher Newtoy, Inc. back in 2010), pushing serious user numbers thanks in large part to robust leveraging of Facebook and social media.
It’s a new age of gaming, with social networks and massively multiplayer environments drawing larger audiences as each day passes (especially in China where gaming industry growth has exploded alongside mobile usage and Internet availability). PPTF’s capacity to monetize on top of what is an extremely efficient framework for tying it all together, places the company in an ideal position to capture substantial market space should online gambling legalization really take off. The recent move by the Justice Department, reinterpreting the federal law that banned sports betting to more accurately address the new paradigm (since this isn’t sports betting, its head-to-head real-time competition between players), has caused investors eyes to light up, as 20 states move to open up the market by legalizing online gambling.
The domestic and global potential is certainly there for PPTF and with ZNGA (market cap upwards of $11B, with $2B in cash on the sheet) eyeing potential acquisitions, the PPTF platform’s broad appeal to players as a strong benchmark and way to make money playing video games, is very attractive. To a $35B global market ready for carving, the technology PPTF has created is a sharp knife, bringing real-time statistical tracking of scores and rigorous security together with a sophisticated enough software apparatus to seamlessly address the payment/billing required. The $5-6B poker market currently ends up overseas and there is a vast array of existing skill based games already designed to be competitive, they just lack a wagering structure.
Between the more traditional gaming spaces and the sprawling, rapidly evolving mobile space dominated by social media integration, there is plenty of room for PPTF’s technology to be applied for some truly amazing results that have yet to even be considered. Indeed, the technology has the potential to create a whole new standard and the fairness of the environment it creates, as well as the transparency in score keeping, appeals to gamers in ways you’d almost have to be a gamer to fully appreciate. Needless to say however, the enhanced experience for the end users, where the chance at monetary reward for a nominal entrance fee is as close as skill can take them, should be immediately obvious to any investor. Simply by integrating the PPTF platform games become better products that are more appropriately aligned to the target market’s demands.
PPTF isn’t waiting around for larger players to pick up the ball and run with it though. With newer racing games coming down the pipe and more of them in recent years, like publisher EA’s Need for Speed franchise, there is even more room for growth now, and PPTF’s platform is readily extensible to new engines/games that are developed. This extensibility means the platform can grow as the market grows, taking advantage of new territory, whether it is in the more traditional hardware space or the latest tablet/mobile game.
