Amarantus BioSciences, Inc. (AMBS)
HEROSTOCKS, Liquid Pennies, and Stockhunter.us reported recently on Amarantus BioSciences, Inc. (AMBS), OTC Stock Pick, Stock Brain, SmallCapVoice did earlier, and we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Amarantus BioSciences, Inc. is a development-stage biotechnology company focusing on developing certain biologics surrounding the intellectual property and proprietary technologies they own to treat and/or diagnose Parkinson's disease, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and other human diseases. Founded in January 2008, the Company owns the intellectual property rights to a therapeutic protein known as Mesencephalic-Astrocyte-derived Neurotrophic Factor (MANF). Amarantus BioSciences is developing MANF-based products as treatments for brain disorders. The Company is based in Sunnyvale, California.
In addition, Amarantus BioSciences is a Founding Member of the Coalition for Concussion Treatment (#C4CT), a movement initiated in collaboration with Brewer Sports International seeking to raise awareness of new treatments in development for concussions and TBI. Amarantus BioSciences' intention is to advance therapies that will provide patients with safe and effective treatment options and help curb the growing healthcare costs associated with the care of chronic illnesses.
MANF is a highly potent, neurotrophic factor currently in pre-clinical development for the treatment of several apoptosis-related disorders. The design of MANF's discovery protocols, utilizing the Company's proprietary PhenoGuard Protein Discovery Engine is to identify a molecule that would be highly selective for dopamine producing neurons of the Substantia Nigra. MANF represents a new family of neurotrophic factors with mechanisms of action fundamentally differentiated from its predecessors.
MANF is an endogenous, highly-conserved, ubiquitously expressed, and highly potent secreted human growth factor up-regulated in the adaptive pathway of the Unfolded Protein Response resulting in the prevention of apoptosis. This cell death is associated with several devastating human diseases and injury related disorders. Through mediating this critical biological process, MANF is highly indicated for the treatment of several poorly served medical conditions, including Parkinson's disease and Ischemic Heart Disease.
In early June, Amarantus BioSciences and Banyan Biomarkers announced the successful completion of a collaboration agreement initiated in November 2011 to evaluate MANF's potential as a disease-modifying agent for the treatment of TBI. Banyan Biomarkers is the leader in developing in vitro diagnostic products to detect TBI. In in-vitro cell culture experiments, MANF was reproducibly shown to confer neuroprotective properties in various cell death-related pathways. The data raises the possibility that modulating MANF in patients immediately after suffering a TBI and in patients who have suffered multiple concussions over an extended period, could be a successful therapeutic approach to promote recovery after TBI.
Recently, Amarantus BioSciences announced that they were featured in BioWorld Today, Brewer Sports' 2nd Annual Sports Law and CLE Symposium and Opportunist Magazine. On June 15, 2012, a featured article on Amarantus was published in the NewCo News section of BioWorld Today entitled "Amarantus Restart Makes another Run at MANF Protein".
Amarantus BioSciences, Inc. (AMBS), closed Thursday's session at $0.01, down 8.33%, on 1,023,594 volume with 26 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 168,608. The 52-week low/high is $0.008/$1.04.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Duma Energy Corp. (DUMA). Today, Duma Energy Corp. closed trading at $1.90, up 5.56%, on 100 volume with 1 trade. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 3,133, and its 52-week low/high is $1.50/$4.00.
Duma Energy Corp. (DUMA) is an aggressive growth company actively producing oil and gas in the domestic United States, both on and offshore. Leveraging its technical expertise, promising portfolio, and strong financial condition, the company plans to utilize domestic revenues and cash flow to fund its rapid growth through acquisition, while participating in transformational projects with the potential of providing exponential returns for shareholders.
The company's primary goal for fiscal year 2012 and beyond is to drive earnings growth. The company also aims to pursue listing on major exchange(s) to provide better visibility and liquidity to shareholders and financial partners. Already producing and generating revenue from oil and gas in Texas, Illinois, and Louisiana, Duma projects domestic production to exceed 1,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd) by the end of 2012; with 2,500 boepd projected by the end of 2013.
Duma was founded in 2005 and began trading on the OTCBB in 2009 via registration. In 2006, the company began producing from its first properties in Texas and soon after added production in Louisiana. In 2009, its new CEO Jeremy G. Driver came on board. Within one year, Mr. Driver had identified and negotiated an acquisition that would fundamentally reshape the company. This acquisition was made possible by the large direct cash investment by Mr. Driver and his family, as well as other investors.
The company uses only industry standard and time-tested technologies, and avoids unproven "resource plays" and other opportunities that are heavily dependent upon high commodity prices. Not bound by any geographical location or operational strategy, Duma's management team is focused on developing its existing portfolio while pursuing additional opportunities that provide rapid growth, leveraging growing revenue, cash flow, and reserves to accelerate its growth strategy.

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, off by 3.33%, on 226,349 volume with 56 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 193,102, and its 52-week low/high is $0.21/$1.06.
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.

Companies and government agencies around the country use GlobalWise Investments software to make the storage and retrieval of important electronic or scanned documents more efficient. The company’s cloud-based solution, through its Intellinetics subsidiary, is based upon an open architecture, compatible with all major operating systems, and is Open Database Compliant for seamless integration into any existing database. The system uses a special algorithm for compressing stored information, allowing files to be easily searched and retrieved in mere seconds, independent of the number of users or files involved, or even the size of the network.
One of many examples of the system’s effectiveness in government is its application at the Ohio Department of Insurance, a large state insurance operation that protects consumers through the regulation of the many insurance agencies licensed to operate in the state of Ohio. The size of the task was daunting. The agency needed high-speed and flexible access to over 5 million images, with the ability to import and export documents from many sources. The system also had to effectively integrate with various business applications and legacy databases. The GlobalWise implementation reduced the average turnaround time for Property & Casualty filings by over 60%, while significantly reducing problems and work associated with lost files, misfiles, and multiple copies.
In private industry, an example involves the world’s largest car dealership, Ricart Automotive Group, covering 66 acres and supporting 20 satellite locations. (To give you an idea of the size, in one year alone Ricart sold over 33,000 vehicles.) Ricart had a growing issue trying to effectively deal with the vast amount of paperwork involved in such sales volumes, including many legally required forms. Physical storage, and the associated time involved, were becoming major problems. The fact that the GlobalWise solution could integrate with many different satellite office systems was a big factor, and the implementation gave Ricart an immediate and substantial return on investment. The system provides instant access to an image repository that is growing by over 90,000 images per month, and the timeframe for logging inventory has gone from over 1½ weeks to only 1½ days.

XsunX, developer of the patent-pending solar cell manufacturing process CIGSolar, announced its technology development and marketing operations are being expanded to a new facility in Irvine, Calif. The company received equity financing through Ironridge Global IV, Ltd., an institutional investor that finances small cap public companies in the energy market.
XsunX has been working toward the assembly completion of its CIGSolar TFPV cell manufacturing system, as well as establishing a marketing facility to create a hands-on demonstration environment for customers. Offered in exchange for unregistered shares of common stock, the Ironridge investment helped enable XsunX to settle around $500,000 in accounts payable that were chiefly associated with the assembly of the CIGSolar thermal evaporation technology. XsunX’s liabilities were substantially reduced by the transaction, and the company is now able to expedite the completion of its baseline CIGSolar co-evaporation system and establish a facility for marketing and demonstrating its technology.
XsunX is working to accelerate progress toward hosting the company’s first customer demonstrations. In recent years, the solar industry has undergone significant changes – chiefly driven through substantial pricing reductions to silicon that have put some companies out of business and left others to operate on extremely thin margins. In offering a solution to this problem, XsunX has focused its efforts based on a belief that high-performance CIGS solar cells can provide additional price reductions and restore operating margins.
Samples of XsunX’s technology were certified delivering 15.91% average efficiency in tests conducted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. The company’s technology utilizes multi-small area thermal co-evaporation for rapid deposition of final-sized cells for improved control of the complex management of the CIGS layer deposition process.
Unlike other CIGS manufacturing technology, XsunX’s method begins and ends with the use of individual, thin stainless steel substrates that are sized to match silicon cells – allowing them to be used in place of silicon cells in existing module assembly lines. The CIGSolar process not only provides for a smaller, more precise deposition environment but also helps prevent performance losses experienced when cells are either cut from rolls of manufactured CIGS material or mismatched electrically in monolithic assemblies.
XsunX is engaged in the development of a new manufacturing process to produce low-cost, high-efficiency thin-film Copper Indium Gallium (di) Selenide (CIGS) thin-film solar cells. The company’s patent-pending system and processing technology, called CIGSolar, targets mass production of individual thin-film CIGS solar cells that match silicon solar cell dimensions and can be offered as a non-toxic, high-efficiency, lowest-cost alternative to silicon solar cell use. XsunX is offering licenses for the use of the CIGSolar process technology and intends to generate revenue through licensing fees and manufacturing royalties.

Today, leading provider of energy-related project delivery solutions, ENGlobal, announced that it is one of three firms to receive a multiple-award contract by the U.S. Military for the procurement of automated fuel handling equipment (AFHE) support services. The cumulative value of the fixed-price contracts is estimated at $215 million. If it reaches that amount, work could continue until June 2017. These factors are contingent upon the U.S. Navy exercising all options.
The scope of the project awarded to ENGlobal includes development, design, engineering, fabrication, integration, installation, quality assurance, logistics, maintenance, life-cycle management, and technical support for AFHE systems. The company will primarily focus on an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ), cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for technical and maintenance services for automated tank gauging and automated fuel service stations. The work will be performed at Department of Defense fuel facilities worldwide and is expected to be completed by the second quarter 2013.
“ENGlobal has a proven track record of delivering exceptional service to SPAWAR since 2007,” remarked Edward L. Pagano, ENGlobal’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “This cumulative award for the three firms represents an increase of approximately $89 million over the 2007 award level of $126 million and, as validated by our performance, we will make every effort to increase ENGlobal’s portion of the base contract funding.”
Mr. Pagano continued, “Our Government Services division, based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, specializes in the turn-key installation and maintenance of automation and instrumentation systems for the U.S. defense industry worldwide. This award demonstrates that our technical capability for AFHE engineering support extends globally to keep Department of Defense fuel systems fully mission capable.”
