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 $0.28, even for the day, on 140,325 volume with 31 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 21,002, 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.

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.

Scio Diamond, the developers of a revolutionary series of patented methods/processes for growing the kind of real diamonds which are in increasingly high demand across all global commercial/industrial markets, reported appointment today of 30-year veteran business leader/manager, Bern McPheely, to the company’s Board of Directors as a non-executive member.
Fast on the heels of the recent (July 31) milestone of producing over 1k carats of their CVD (chemical vapor deposition) single-crystal diamond and the initiation of shipment to customers, this appointment looks to catalyze the company’s forward momentum by bringing a heavy-hitter with broad international business experience to the Board’s lineup. McPheely has been a driving force for over three decades at packaging equipment and packaging solutions developer, Hartness International, who is located not too far from Scio’s own state-of-the-art production facility in Greenville, SC.
From a mere startup through to the eventual acquisition by Illinois Tool Works (ITW) in 2009, McPheely has been there to provide the kind of leadership excellence that saw Hartness turn quarterly profits, every quarter since 1982. In fact, it was McPheely who negotiated the ITW deal and carefully oversaw the successful transition of the company from a private, family-owned business, to a full public company.
McPheely was honored by widely-read industry publication Start Magazine as a top ten “CEO Visionary Who Ignites Technology,” briefing Presidents and cabinet ministers on the state of the US business environment well before many of today’s top players were even on their feet. McPheely is a former (2000-2002) chairman of the leading global resource for packaging and processing, PMMI (a trade association with nearly 600 member companies representing billions of dollars in annual sales), and has even worked directly with the U.S. Department of Commerce.
President and CEO of SCIOE, Joseph Lancia, welcomed McPheely to the team with open arms and threw a spotlight on his distinguished track record of success, confident that he possesses the proper mix of experience in international business and developing prosperous companies.

Today, Dialogic Inc. announced that its Board of Directors appointed current President and COO Kevin Cook to the role of President and CEO. The announcement follows former CEO Nick Jensen’s resignation, which occurred yesterday. Mr. Jensen will continue to be on Dialogic’s Board and has assumed the role of non-executive Vice Chairman.
Mr. Cook remarked, “I am honored that the Board has selected me to be our CEO. I am excited to take the helm of Dialogic given the depth of our management team and our shared commitment to the company’s future. We are all aligned in support of our top global priorities – extending Mobile Experience Management to our customers worldwide, investing in the power of our Next-Gen portfolio and generating the returns that create shareholder value. Our partners and customers should view this transition as a vote of confidence in Dialogic and an important milestone in our growth as a world-class company.”
Cook had served as Dialogic’s President and COO since December 2011, where he directed global operations for over 700 employees in 30 countries. He held the position of Executive Vice President of Worldwide Field Operations from 2010 until 2011, where he was responsible for sales, marketing, services, and the company’s entire global go-to-market strategy. Cook joined Dialogic as Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Support in 2008.
Jensen stepped down as CEO after 10 years in that position with Dialogic and affiliated companies.
“Nick’s vision and leadership have benefitted our valued customers and enabled Dialogic to become a global leader in Mobile Experience Management,” said Dion Joannou, Dialogic Board member. “Nick brought exceptional knowledge of the market and an intuitive sense of how to take advantage of the rapid pace of change in telecommunications. We recognize Nick’s lasting contributions in integrating the building blocks that have positioned Dialogic for success in the future. We will miss his passion, integrity and strong connection to customers, employees and shareholders in a day to day role but are pleased that he is remaining on the Board.
“Bringing innovation to market in order to solve long-term customer challenges has driven my passion for Dialogic since 2002,” said Jensen. “I’m honored to have served the company for so long and to have developed such great relationships with the Board, our shareholders, our customers and our employees. This is the right time to transition having guided Dialogic through a significant evolution of its business. Kevin has been an active partner in driving this transformation and, under his leadership, will continue to meet the needs of over 3,000 customers in 80 countries.”
Hitor Group has developed considerable momentum in environmentally sustainable technology via an ever-growing proprietary portfolio of solutions that penetrate the primary construction, energy/transportation, and water/waste management markets, establishing lucrative territory for the company’s shareholders in what is one of the most rapidly growing global segments today.
Look at construction and housing for instance, where the company made a bold move in July 2012 with the formation of a European division, Hitor Poland LLC., to accelerate delivery of the exclusive global rights to NuGuard™ Home Systems Technology (reported, Aug 1), a revolutionary new architectural panel system. Securing the manufacturing agreement (July 17) with legendary Polish rail-vehicle body and bus supplier Autosan (largest in Poland with a production track record stretching back to the early 1800′s) to produce the NuGard panels, which are light-weight yet exceed durability/structural integrity requirements of competing products, was a major win for HITR and showcases the European footprint move quite well.
Management seems to have a good nose for this sort of thing and the Hitor Poland European head office is planned to be located in the Mercedes Benz office building in Krakow, placing HITR at the epicenter of activity, as Autosan’s major clients include both Mercedes and the Polish Army, as well as many railways throughout Europe. It’s a perfect example of how well positioned HITR is both in terms of industry connectivity and product innovation. The NuGard panels are composed of environmentally inert materials, and are generally more efficient/cost-effective than alternatives as well.
At the close of 2011 (Dec 12), HITR was able to punch through with their novel NanoJet fuel saving and emissions reduction technology after five years of rigorous R&D, introducing it in Europe in collaboration with German manufacturer of ultra-fine filters for cleaning oil/diesel (just about any oil really from biodiesel to compressor oil) from water and particles, Micfil International GmbH. The revolutionary NJCT product is destined to become a standard for fuel and emissions markets and will be manufactured according to the highest standards in Germany. After successful third-party testing in 2012, the product should hit the market with some serious force. Emission reductions of a whopping 50% (up to 80%), combined with fuel savings in the 35-40% range, according to CEO of HITR, Ken Martin, will lead to a follow-up phase, as the company kicks down the door of the locomotive/truck end of the transport market. The newest patented version has seen extensive testing in Europe and the company is very excited about the anticipated commercial launch.
Another area where HITR has deep roots and positive forward developmental momentum is water filtration/treatment. With joint venture and private label RO (reverse osmosis) technology that dovetails exceptionally well with all existing systems and a solid reputation in the industry for being able to design any kind of customized solution (under the counter or large-scale) the client could want, HITR is a leader in water filtration with 15 years of tried and tested, yet constantly evolving hardware capabilities. Water filtration and treatment is emerging as one of the growing global problems today and HITR has anticipated this dynamic with a green, scalable systems architecture that is also self-cleaning by design.
Hitor has also developed a strong bundled communication data services capability (cell, high-speed data, radio, telephone, and television) which integrates all the needed technologies into one wireless IP platform. Such a platform is ideal for the kind of remote, standalone, Solar and Wind Turbine technologies that make up another significant area of the company’s work. While solar is still an emerging front for HITR, the company’s patented VAWT (vertical axis wind turbine) technology is an established, robust, next-gen wind harvester built around a permanent magnet generator. The 5kW VAWT design from Canadian developer Vbine Energy is an ideal micro-application that can go just about anywhere, whether it’s on a remote site or used in a rural/urban niche application, the no-to-low maintenance design features no drive shaft/gearbox, no brushes/bushings or slip rings, and uses a patented blade design able to produce energy on a full half of the 360 degree rotation (even on mere updrafts). With a lifecycle of 20-30 years, the VAWT service envelope will place the technology increasingly in the hands of isolated/remote field functions and one can’t help but think of the pressing DOD requirements in the U.S., which call for exactly this kind of remotely operable, self-contained, modular, renewable platform technology.
Rounding out the company’s profile are initiatives in the waste-to-energy, gasification, and initial filtration/separation for waste technologies, all stemming from core competencies built in related hardware, logistic, and managerial endeavors. Hitor is a well-connected environmental solutions company with visionary management that is squarely focused on expanding their overall commercialization pipeline for a constantly-evolving green tech portfolio, driven ultimately by the massive opportunity that exists in the segment for bolstering shareholder returns as a global push towards sustainable technology encompasses all industries.
