We are highlighting InSite Vision, Inc. (INSV), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Headquartered in Alameda, California, InSite Vision, Inc. is advancing new ophthalmologic products for unmet eye care needs. The Company develops novel ophthalmic products designed to treat a growing range of common eye problems. These include ocular infection, pain and inflammation in ocular surgery, and glaucoma. InSite Vision’s product portfolio utilizes their proven DuraSite® bioadhesive polymer core technology.

The DuraSite system can be customized to deliver a broad array of potential drug agents. DuraSite is a drug delivery vehicle that stabilizes small molecules in a polymeric mucoadhesive matrix. The topical ophthalmic solution can be described as a gel forming drop. It extends the residence time of the drug relative to conventional eye drops.
Currently, the Company’s DuraSite® platform is leveraged in two commercial products for the treatment of bacterial eye infections, AzaSite® (azithromycin ophthalmic solution) 1%, marketed in the U.S. by Merck, and Besivance® (besifloxacin ophthalmic suspension) 0.6%, marketed by Bausch + Lomb. InSite Vision’s clinical-stage ophthalmic product pipeline includes AzaSite Plus™ and DexaSite™ for the treatment of eye infections, BromSite™ for pain and swelling associated with ocular surgery, and ISV-101 for the treatment of dry eye disease.
InSite Vision’s business strategy includes developing and extending their AzaSite® franchise in North America and internationally; advancing their late stage pipeline toward NDA filings; advancing their earlier stage pipeline toward Phase 3 clinical trials, and advancing their late pre-clinical pipeline toward Phase 1/2 clinical trials. In addition, their strategy includes advancing their early pre-clinical pipeline toward IND-enabling GLP toxicology studies; seeking promising new late-stage products and technologies for in-licensing or acquisition, as well as executing on their plan with operational discipline – the implementation of their strategy will be guided by milestone-driven decision making and the careful management of resources.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Duma Energy Corp. (DUMA). Today, Duma Energy Corp. closed trading at $1.45, even with yesterday's close, on 21,125 volume with 34 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 4,897, and its 52-week low/high is $1.21/$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 $0.32, even for the day, on 88,915 volume with 22 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 841, and its 52-week low/high is $0.21/$1.00.
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.

GlobalWise Reports on International Expansion Initiatives
Although Duma Energy has oil and gas interests in Texas, Louisiana, Illinois, and is even pursuing an opportunity in Africa to acquire a private corporation with a significant interest in an African concession totaling approximately 6 million acres, the company’s key operations are located in the shallow bays off the Gulf of Mexico just east of Houston, Texas.
In early 2011, the company purchased 4 existing off-shore fields in Galveston Bay and Trinity Bay, most of which were originally developed and the facilities built by Exxon. Production operations are focused on the Frio interval, the most prolific in the region, and the fields are currently receiving a full geological and engineering analysis to determine future projects. This includes reworks, recompletions, plugging, offsets, and potential new drilling locations. Recently a new well was drilled in the Fishers Reef Field, in Trinity Bay, and is currently awaiting completion. Duma also operates several offshore production and processing platforms, as well as pipelines that carry the produced gas and liquids to shore-based production and processing facilities where they are either disposed of or sold. Production has increased dramatically, and will continue to expand, following a well thought out developmental timeline.
Duma believes that oil is currently (and historically) a compelling investment opportunity with a unique set of macroeconomic drivers. The company’s success in the above projects is a direct result of this, in addition to the key elements of their operational and growth strategy, and the advantages they feel they have in the industry.
• An oil company that invests for strong financial returns, not solely for barrels of oil
• A company not bound to any geographical location or operational strategy
• A strategy where risk is evaluated on a broad basis, including operational, financial, and industrial
• The use of only industry standard and time-tested technologies
• The careful avoidance of unproven “resource plays” heavily dependent upon high commodity prices
• A philosophy of letting others risk their money first and learning from their mistakes
In addition, the company’s CEO, Jeremy Driver, has personally invested more than 25% of the company’s capital since its inception.

Synthesis Energy Systems, which is focused on providing the logistics required to implement their U-GAS® fluidized bed gasification technology (licensed from the Gas Technology Institute) for low-grade coals and biomass feedstocks, reported today that, as a majority of the syngas production facility systems approach mechanical completion at the coal to methanol Yima Joint Venture project in Henan Province, China, the project has officially entered the commissioning phase.
President and CEO of SYMX, Robert Rigdon, hailed the rapidly approaching startup of the Yima facility as a strong indicator that the company’s China strategy, which also includes the similarly successful Hongye and ZhongMo strategic investments, is progressing nicely. Rigdon pointed to the Yima facility as a real milestone on the company’s road toward growth targets set for China’s vast coal, energy, and chemical industries.
The ability of the SYMX technology to transform low-grade coals, even the dirt-cheap high ash and moisture coals, into energy, via a technology which is easily scaled down such that plant construction can occur in close proximity to fuel sources like a coal mine, quickly and without typical massive capital outlays, has rapidly propelled U-GAS (which has seen over four decades in development time) to prominence in the eyes of industry operators. Investors are also turning a sharp eye on the company, as rapidly proliferating adoption of this technology begins to transform the global energy and chemical markets.
The first gasifier is expected to go online by September and many of the ancillary support systems, like the coal handling and feeding systems, as well as the steam/oxygen processors, are now mechanically complete. Methanol unit system commissioning is slated to immediately follow after these other considerations have been dealt with and the plant is otherwise fully commissioned.
Senior VP and CTO for SYMX, Francis Lau, commented warmly on the vast gasification experience possessed by the company’s team, including the Zao Zhuang Joint Venture operating unit and how it has allowed for gathering of key data during pre-commissioning that will allow for a speedy, successful startup of the plant. Lau expressed great confidence in the SYMX team’s ability to execute flawlessly on the commissioning phase work and looked forward to eventually getting Yima up and running at capacity.
With an abundant supply of low-grade coals in China and elsewhere around the globe, the U-GAS gasification technology has major potential for becoming a permanent fixture in the energy conversion space and the company already has a strong foothold in the Chinese market. Other developers will be looking to SYMX to provide similar expertise in the execution of yet more syngas facilities as China continues to push cleaner, energy efficient tech like this across the board.

Mobile Internet technology company XcelMobility today introduced its Mach 5 LBS (Location Based Service) as an optional component of its Mach 5 browser accelerator product line.
XcelMobility reports that its flagship product, the Mach 5 “Xcelerator,” provides the industry’s fastest browsing experience available for mobile phones, tablet PCs, and laptops, having undergone testing by some of the world’s largest cellular carriers and manufactures that confirmed its speed.
While the Mach 5 LBS is also a stand-alone product, the company says the service is enhanced when coupled with the Mach 5 Xcelerator.
Paired with LBS, the Mach 5 offers developers a platform that enables the deployment of high-speed LBS applications. XcelMobility says it has initiated discussion with cellular carriers, OEM manufacturers, and retail distributors for initial entry into the Asian marketplace in upcoming months, and that it plans to use the combined features as a development platform for future products.
The company notes that LBSs are relatively new, but that developers are recognizing the potential of the services and the wide variety of applications, such as turning on/off lights, unlocking/relocking doors as the user travels through a building, and automatically alerting travelers as they near popular venues based on social media platform reviews.
From a marketing stance, XcelMobility says LBSs are a means to execute profile-based marketing messages to users as they enter retail shopping environments.
“We are very pleased to announce our entry into the LBS market space. We believe this is the future nexus of application development and the need for speed just got even more important. Within the next few months we hope to carve out some new relationships with like-minded carriers and manufacturers in order to move the product into the public arena as quickly as possible,” Ryan Ge, CEO of XcelMobility, stated in the press release.

ZBB Energy designs, develops, and manufactures advanced energy storage systems, power electronic systems, and engineered custom and semi-custom products. The company’s products are aimed at the growing global need for distributed renewable energy, energy efficiency, power quality, and grid modernization.
The company announced today that it has hit the final milestone in the flow battery joint development agreement with Honam Petrochemical, a major diversified producer of petrochemicals and advanced synthetic resins located in South Korea. Several years ago Honam identified energy storage as a strategic priority business. Its due diligence search for a leader in the field of energy storage led them to ZBB Energy and its zinc bromide technology, which is widely recognized as the leading commercially available flow battery.
Under terms of the agreement, Honam paid ZBB Energy $3 million over a four-quarter period and gained non-exclusive rights to sell the ZBB EnerStore battery in Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia, in addition to Korea.
In addition, ZBB benefited from this relationship through cost savings and performance achievements in the ZBB EnerStore product, which has been in development since January 2010 and began shipping in early 2012. The initial phase of the collaboration between the two companies spanned from April 2011 to June 2012. It culminated with shipment of a ZBB EnerStore to Honam in June. Specifically, the two firms worked together to refine the materials and manufacturing process for the ZBB EnerStore battery in sizes from 50 to 500 kilowatts.
The two companies have agreed to extend the first phase of their collaboration to September 30, 2012, and are currently discussing a manufacturing ramp-up and joint marketing plans. With Honam’s position in the plastics supply chain and their strong research capabilities, the two firms expect to be able to quickly reach global scale production.
