The increase of revenue during this period was largely due to a major supplier of store-value cards who temporarily ceased their business with China Teletech in the first quarter of 2012 for their internal system upgrade so they could serve a greater customer base from Guangzhou City extended to the Guangdong Province. The supplier re-started their business with China Teletech. Subsequently, China Teletech’s sales increased during the three months ended March 31, 2013.

This is in comparison to net income of $1,634,850 during the three months ended March 31, 2012.

The August 9, 2013, investor conference call presented by International Stem Cell provided more than the company’s 3-month and 6-month financial results, significant though those results were. Quarterly revenues were up by 38% over the second quarter in 2012, and gross margin jumped to 77%, up 600 basis points. But significant information regarding the company’s moves over the past several months was also presented, along with expectations.
Simon Craw, Executive Vice President of Business Development, summarized a number of key points:
• ISCO continued to move forward with their Parkinson’s disease program, the company’s top priority at this point, and they are still planning for an IND filing in 2014. During the 2nd quarter, they had what Craw called a “pre-pre” IND meeting with the FDA’s office of tissues, cellular, and gene therapy. These early meetings are an opportunity to get off-the-record advice regarding pre-clinical research, and help lay the groundwork for a smooth pre-IND meeting, ensuring no surprises. For ISCO’s Parkinson’s disease program, they got guidance from the FDA regarding specific questions pertaining to the intended manufacturing process for creating the human neural stem cells to be used, along with the design of their associated primate and rodent studies. Subsequent to this pre-pre meeting, ISCO began the large scale manufacturing of the human neural stem cells and associated cell banking. The company anticipates IND filing sometime in the middle of next year.
• In the 2nd quarter, ISCO also gave results of their neuronal cell in vivo safety and efficacy studies, with presentations at the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy meeting in Salt Lake City, UT, and the International Society of Stem Cell Research in Boston, MA. These studies show that implanting human neuronal cells, created using the ISCO proprietary platform, into the brains of primates and rodents has a good safety profile, and increases the levels of dopamine in the brain, plus may also offer a potential neuroprotective benefit. This work is now being prepared for publication in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
• Regarding ISCO’s metabolic liver disease program, using their hepatocyte like cells, they have been working to scale up the manufacturing process for the cells, along the same model as used to create the neuronal cells used in their Parkinson’s disease program.
• With respect to ISCO’s cornea program, this is a pre-clinical stage program, developing human corneas from stem cells primarily for eventual use in the developing world where it is especially needed. ISCO is the first company in the world to have successfully created these 3-dimensional corneal tissue constructs from stem cells, and they are now optimizing their physical and optical properties to make them suitable for transplantation.
Dr. Craw emphasized that one of the things making ISCO a special company is their proprietary platform for creating stem cells using parthenogenesis, and that clinical success in any one of the above programs will validate the approach and unlock tremendous therapeutic and partnering opportunities. This clearly differentiates ISCO from other stem cell companies.
He also commented on ISCO’s two commercial operations, Lifeline Skin Care and Lifeline Cell Technologies, are responsible for the significant increase in revenue as well as improvement in gross margins. Over the past months, ISCO has invested in growing business in Asia, and much of these improvements are the result of those efforts. The company plans to continue expanding in Asia, but also plans to have more U.S. focused sales people to help grow the domestic market share more quickly. The reduced cash burn rate and improved gross margins is due in part to the company’s use of larger batch sizes and more efficient manufacturing processes, but also because of the company’s ability to promote their higher margin products.
Replay of the conference call is available through August 16, 2013, by calling 877-344-7529, or 412-317-0888 internationally.

In collaboration with Dr. Gordon Keller, one of the world’s leading stem cell researchers, biotech company VistaGen Therapeutics is developing a novel human liver cell-based bioassay system, LiverSafe3D™.
VistaGen believes it can use its technology to provide clinically relevant biological information about a new drug candidate early in the drug development process, before time and money are spent on clinical trials.
To do this, VistaGen focuses on applying proprietary human pluripotent stem cell technology for technology for drug rescue, predictive toxicology, and drug metabolism screening. The LiverSafe3D system is designed to predict liver toxicity and metabolism issues in connection with VistaGen’s drug rescue activities.
In a poster presentation entitled “Semi–quantitative assay of CYP3A4 allows the identification and selection of mature human stem cell derived hepatocytes,” Dr. Kristina Bonham, senior scientist, Hepatocyte Biology Project Leader, earlier this year presented data indicating that the LiverSafe 3D bioassay can monitor the induction of the key metabolic enzyme, CYP3A4, and its expression level.
This data suggests that VistaGen’s liver cells contain functional properties of mature adult liver cells, which would allow for multiple functional analyses and provides a system to evaluate the effects of drug candidates on CYP3A4 expression and liver function.

Customer loyalty is all about getting the attention of the right customer and providing that customer with a product or service that they keep coming back to buy. Consumers have a plethora of commerce options before them, and if a company or brand isn’t successful at gaining its customer’s trust and loyalty, that company is failing one of the key necessities for keeping its doors open for business.
StreamTrack, a digital media and technology services company specializing in audio and video streaming and advertising services, has created a no-cost loyalty program targeting music audiences around the world. This platform not only provides consumers with an array of entertainment options, but also creates a revenue stream for STTK through advertising and marketing opportunities based on customer loyalty.
RadioLoyalty™ rewards users of Internet radio and mobile stations that use the company’s UniversalPlayer™ platform. After signing up for the free RadioLoyalty service, listeners and/or viewers earn points for listening/watching and performing other tasks on the platform. These points are redeemable for merchandise through RadioLoyalty.
RadioLoyalty provides advertisers with a connection to a highly targeted and brand loyal audience that spans more than 1,000 terrestrial and Internet broadcasts. Advertisers select their target demographics, formats, and geographic areas and then launch an advertising campaign based on the specific criteria.
For broadcasters, RadioLoyalty serves as a comprehensive tool for increasing audience and revenue. RadioLoyalty is free of charge for broadcasters; their content is what keep customers coming back for more, which in turn generates more advertising appeal for STTK.
The broader strategy isn’t about increasing sales to improve the bottom line, but rather to create a solid base of customers that keeps listeners coming back to RadioLoyalty for more entertainment and redeemable loyalty points. STTK’s goal is to provide a unique experience for consumers to watch and listen to content through its no-cost platforms while offering advertisers and broadcasters a cost-effective means to reach a loyal target audience.
