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 $0.29, up 4.32%, on 100,859 volume with 34 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 115,373, and its 52-week low/high is $0.161/$0.45.
International Stem Cell Corp. announced that they will be presenting at two investor conferences during the month of May today, with Exec. VP, Dr. Simon Craw, in attendance at the B. Riley & Co. 14th Annual Investor Conference in Santa Monica, CA Monday May 20, 2013 and the Marcum LLP 2nd Annual MicroCap Conference in New York City, New York on Thursday, May 30, 2013. Interested parties can contact Mark McPartland with MZ Group via email email@example.com or via phone 646.593.7140 to arrange a meeting with management at the conference.
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.

“Labeling our product as gluten-free will be a tremendous advantage in standing out in the marketplace,” stated ASCC CEO Robert Federowicz. “Nearly a third of all Americans report that they’re trying to cut back on gluten, and vodka is by far the most popular spirit in the country. By having ‘gluten-free’ on our bottles, consumers will be able to feel 100 percent confident that they’re enjoying their favorite beverage uncontaminated by so much as a hint of gluten.”
It has been estimated that the market for gluten-free products is even larger than the booming $5.5 billion vodka market. By producing a branded, gluten-free vodka, ASCC plans to capitalize on both markets’ growth.
ASCC will need to get approval from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) before adding “gluten-free” to the label of its new vodka brand. For years, this agency’s strict liquor labeling laws prevented manufacturers from labeling any spirits as gluten-free. That changed last year, when TTB began allowing companies to advertise distilled spirits as gluten-free if they were made from gluten-free ingredients.
Distilled in the U.S. from Idaho russet potatoes, ASCC’s new vodka could soon be one of only a small handful of spirits to bear “gluten-free” labeling.

The company featured the following financial highlights and recent developments:

• Total current assets increased 5.9%, or $51,034, to approximately $912,000, as of March 31, 2013 compared to March 31, 2012, attributed primarily to the increase in cash which resulted from the sale of the Company’s stock and warrants in March 2013.
• Net increase in cash and cash equivalents of $123,001, as of March 31, 2013 compared to March 31, 2012, primarily consisting of net cash provided by financing activities of $230,217 partially offset by net cash used in operating activities of $107,216.
• For the three months ended March 31, 2013, revenue totaled $525,427 compared to revenue of $729,137 for the same period a year earlier.
• $250,000 of equity investment received from a new Private Placement investor in the first quarter. An additional $515,000 from previous Private Placement investors received subsequent to the quarter end.
• Expanded footprint in China with the installation of eighth ButtKicker “4D” theater system for Lumière Pavilions in Beijing.
• Entered into a Joint Marketing Agreement with Digital Cinema Destinations Corp. All 300+ stadium seats in one of the largest 3D auditoriums at their Solon Cinema 16 location will be ButtKicker enabled as the initial installation.
• Joined D-Tools Manufacturer Vantage Point (MVP) Program.
• Partnered with Warner Brothers for this Summer’s Release of “Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim” by Oscar® nominee director Guillermo del Toro.
• Widened live in-arena game testing of the ButtKicker Live! broadcast technology with major sports league to include two potential broadcast partners.
• Began in-depth discussions with additional potential sports league for ButtKicker Live!
• Joined Nationwide, the largest buying and marketing organization in North America, with more than 3,500 members operating more than 10,000 store fronts.
• ButtKicker products were a Nationwide “Featured SOLUTION” at their Primetime! Buying Show in Las Vegas.
• Hired industry veteran National Sales Manager to lead domestic home theater sales initiatives.
Mark Luden, President of Guitammer, stated, “We started off 2013 by significantly raising the visibility of our ButtKicker® technology by strategically partnering with established market leaders. This not only raised immediate brand awareness for our products within the entertainment industry, but also positions us for growth moving forward. In addition, we welcomed our new National Sales Manager, Home Theater, to oversee home theater sales of ButtKicker brand products and generate an increase in domestic sales volumes.”
“Furthermore, we increased our footprint of both international and domestic movie theaters, a trend we expect to continue,” added Luden. “We expect to launch direct to consumer sales with one or more of our theater operators by the end of Q3 to help position us for Q4 consumer holiday sales.
“Importantly, we continued to progress with our live in-game testing of the ButtKicker Live! broadcast technology and expanded our efforts to include an additional sports partner to help us begin commercializing this technology, potentially this year.”
Addressing the decrease in Q1 revenues, Luden stated, “The decrease in revenues is primarily attributed to the following factors: the first quarter of 2012 had a sizeable stocking order from an OEM customer and the first quarter of 2013 did not have a stocking order of that magnitude; the first quarter of 2012 had more backorders that had to be fulfilled than the first quarter of 2013; and the economic slowdown in Europe caused certain restocking orders from established distributors to be delayed. However, our net loss decreased by 6%, and our EBITDA loss decreased by approximately $13,845 in the first quarter of 2013, compared to the first quarter of 2012. We do expect to see domestic sales volumes increase throughout the remainder of 2013.”
Richard Conn, Chief Financial Officer of Guitammer, provided the following guidance for the rest of this year: “We believe that our operations, exclusive of any research and development costs, can become operationally cash flow positive on an ongoing basis for our core products business by the end of the fourth quarter of 2013 as we continue securing additional capital,” stated. “With this additional financing, we anticipate the purchase of adequate inventory to meet existing sales demand and to be able to increase sales through increased sales and marketing activities as previously described.”
