IC Potash Corp. (ICPTF)

Streetwise Reports reported previously on IC Potash Corp. (ICPTF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

IC Potash Corp. has previously demonstrated a method to make Sulfate of Potash (SOP) from the Ochoa polyhalite deposit in Southeast New Mexico. The Company has an interest in this deposit and is now exploring ways to become a low-cost fertilizer producer. IC Potash’s business strategy includes direct application of polyhalite as a crop nutrient product - no chemical processing plant. The Ochoa Project is a fully permitted polyhalite deposit. IC Potash lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB and the Company is headquartered in Toronto, Ontario.

The Ochoa project has access to premier local labor resources, low-cost electricity, and natural gas, water, rail lines, and the Port of Galveston, Texas. The Ochoa Project’s land holdings comprise almost 90,000 acres of potassium prospecting permits and mining leases issued by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and State of New Mexico. The present review of the Ochoa Project’s existing feasibility study is being extended to determine a viable positive economic road to the production of direct application polyhalite.

A positive PEA (Preliminary Economic Assessment) on the Polyhalite Project completed in November of 2016.  The expectation is roughly 80 million tons of mining. This potentially translates into a 42-year mine life. The processing facility will consist of standard crushing and pelletizing facilities. It would produce raw granular and pelletized polyhalite products. Polyhalite is an evaporate mineral, a hydrated sulfate of potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

No tailings will be produced and less water is required. The updated Mineral Resource estimate (Measured and Indicated) is 330 million tons.    The proposed production schedule is on extracting up to 2 million tons per annum (Mtpa) of polyhalite. The estimation is that initial production will commence in 2019.

Earlier this month, IC Potash and Cartesian Capital Group, LLC announced the entrance into a binding Letter of Intent (LOI) concerning the indirect ownership of IC Potash in Intercontinental Potash Corp. (USA) (ICPUSA). IC Potash holds an interest in ICPUSA through common shares. ICPUSA fully owns the Ochoa Sulphate of Potash project.

With this LOI, ICPUSA will, subject to the shareholder vote of the shareholders of IC Potash, redeem those of its common shares, which are indirectly owned by IC Potash. This transaction represents the sale by IC Potash to Cartesian affiliates of IC Potash’s indirect ownership in the Ochoa Project. 

Cartesian Capital Group is an international private equity firm. It has proven expertise in helping closely-held companies to expand globally. Cartesian manages greater than $2.7 billion in capital commitments. Cartesian has offices in New York, São Paulo, Shanghai, Warsaw, and Bermuda.

Integrity Applications, Inc. (IGAP)

SmallCapVoice and OTC Markets Group reported earlier on Integrity Applications, Inc. (IGAP), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Listed on the OTC Markets, Integrity Applications, Inc. is the maker of GlucoTrack®. This is a non-invasive device for measuring glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes. GlucoTrack® is a monitoring device, which quickly measures and displays an individual's glucose level in approximately a minute without finger pricking or any pain. GlucoTrack® has received CE Mark and KFDA approvals for type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes. It is presently in the early stages of commercialization in Europe, South Korea, and other geographies. Established in 2001, Integrity Applications is a Delaware corporation with headquarters in the U.S. and a research and development (R&D) site in Ashdod, Israel.

GlucoTrack® features a small sensor. This sensor clips to the earlobe and measures the user's glucose level employing unique and patented sensor technology. The measured signals undergo analysis utilizing a proprietary algorithm and subsequently a calculated glucose level is displayed on a small handheld device the size of a small mobile phone.

The glucose results are stored in the device and used to project an estimated HbA1c level using a proprietary algorithm. Also, the device can display glucose values graphically, enabling the user to monitor glucose levels over time.

The expectation is that GlucoTrack® will start clinical trials for United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in late 2017. The product is now experimental in the U.S. It is limited to investigational use only.

Recently, Integrity Applications announced new data demonstrating the clinical performance of GlucoTrack, further supporting its suitability for people with type 2 diabetes across different medication regimes. The data were recently presented at the American Diabetes Association's (ADA) 77th Scientific Sessions in San Diego, California.

GlucoTrack (following the collection of 7,700 total measurements) demonstrated comparable clinical and numerical accuracies among all participants. This was regardless of medication regime. Across medication groups, the clinical accuracy of GlucoTrack® ranged from 97.5 percent to 99.2 percent in the clinically acceptable A and B zones of the Consensus Error Grid. All medication groups showed clinical accuracy above 72.5 percent in the A zone. In addition, no statistical difference was observed in mean and median absolute relative difference within each medication group (p>0.05).  
In early August, Integrity Applications announced that it successfully closed a private placement offering, raising roughly $12 million over the past 16 months. Accredited investors bought units comprising one share of Series C preferred stock, convertible into shares of Integrity Applications’ common stock at $4.50 per share, and two warrants to purchase shares of the Company's common stock at $4.50 and $7.75 per share, respectively.

The transaction was led by Mr. Andrew Garrett, a New York, New York based full-service investment bank and Integrity Applications’ investment advisor, which acted as sole placement agent.

Mr. John Graham, Chairman and CEO of Integrity Applications, stated “This ongoing source of capital has provided us with resources to continue our progress towards a truly non-invasive solution to glucose measurement and, in addition supports the initial commercialization of GlucoTrack in Europe, as well as advances our clinical and regulatory efforts in the U.S. and China."

Integrity Applications, Inc. (IGAP), closed Wednesday's trading session at $5.40, up 6.93%, on 21,154 volume with 25 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 1,311 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.00/$6.00.

Empire Petroleum Corp. (EMPR)

Nebula Stocks reported earlier on Empire Petroleum Corp. (EMPR), and we are highlighting the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Empire Petroleum Corp. involves in the exploration and development of oil and gas interests in North America. It owns interest in the Gabbs Valley prospect and interest in the South Okie prospect. The Gabbs Valley prospect is an area of about 34,186 gross acres in Nye and Mineral Counties, Nevada. The South Okie prospect encompasses 110 net acres of oil and gas leases in Natrona County, Wyoming.

The Company previously went by the name Americomm Resources Corp. It changed its corporate name to Empire Petroleum Corp. in August of 2001. The Company operates in the Independent Oil & Gas industry in the Basic Materials sector.

Formed in 1983, Empire Petroleum is based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In February of this year, Empire Petroleum announced it was approved to upgrade its common shares from the Pink® Open Market to the OTCQB® Venture Market under the trading symbol “EMPR”, effective January 30, 2017.

Empire Petroleum has conducted wide-ranging geological studies, conducted a seismic survey, carried out a geochemical imaging survey, conducted satellite and gravity studies and drilled two test wells on the Gabbs Valley Prospect. The additional studies of such data and the assistance of geological and engineering consultants led the Company to conclude that more drilling was warranted. The determination was that a new test well should be drilled using a different method of drilling.

Empire Petroleum drilled the Paradise Unit 2-12 well to a depth of 4,250 feet before drilling problems caused them to halt drilling. The Company recovered small amounts of oil containing paraffin that may have been restricting the oil flow. Swab tests failed to increase the oil flow and Empire suspended operations on the well.

The Company assigned the lease and the 1-12 and 2-12 wells to the other leasehold owners from which Empire had taken a farmout. Empire Petroleum does feel the prospect has significant geological merit since the main target, being the Triassic formation, was not reached in either of the two test wells.

Empire Petroleum and Sierra Nevada Oil, LLC centered their activities on the exploration and development of around 36,750 acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) leases situated on a surface anticline in Gabbs, Nevada. Three exploratory wells were drilled on the leases.

Empire Petroleum announced in December of last year, that it entered into an Agreement (Contribution Agreement) with Masterson West, LLC, regarding a newly-formed entity, Masterson West II, LLC (MWII). Upon closing, Empire Petroleum will own up to a maximum of 50 percent of MWII if it delivers $18,000,000 with a proportionate decrease down to 25 percent of Masterson West II at the lower end of the range. These oil and gas properties are in Moore and Potter Counties in the Texas Panhandle. The wells to be included in the transaction chiefly target the Red Cave formation.

Empire Petroleum Corp. (EMPR), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.05, up 25.00%, on 3,959 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 60 days is 6,024 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.035/$0.51.

Singlepoint, Inc. (SING)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Singlepoint, Inc. (SING). Today, Singlepoint, Inc. closed trading at $0.09, up 6.13%, on 30,949,530 volume with 2,095 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 20,405,458, and its 52-week low/high is $0.0075/$0.415.

NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announced the publication of an editorial featuring SinglePoint, Inc. (SING), a client of NNW focused on strengthening its position in the marijuana industry through the acquisition of, or investment in, small to mid-sized cannabis companies. The publication, titled, "Cannabis and Cryptocurrency: The Time Is Now," highlights several companies utilizing cryptocurrency to address the lack of banking options in the cannabis sector. To view the full publication, visit: https://www.networknewswire.com/cannabis-cryptocurrency-time-now/

Singlepoint, Inc. (SING) has grown from a full-service mobile technology provider to a publicly-traded holding company. Through diversification into horizontal markets, SinglePoint is building its portfolio by acquiring an interest in undervalued subsidiaries, thereby providing a rich, diversified holding base.

SinglePoint's approach is to first research and identify acquisition opportunities in which it can take an active and influential role among existing leadership to provide enhanced strategy and direction. Target companies are undervalued, cash-flow positive, with high potential and verified assets. SinglePoint acquires and takes controlling interest of successful candidate companies.

SinglePoint recently signed a Letter of Intent to acquire an interest in Jacksam Corp., dba Convectium, a profitable California-based provider of equipment, branding, and packaging solutions for the cannabis industry. Convectium has developed the world's first cartridge and vape pen oil filling machine for wholesale distribution to dispensaries. The 710Shark and 710Seal systems can fill and package over 100 cartridges or disposable vape pens in 30 seconds and are sold to dispensaries through its EquipCanna.com brand. The company also operates a consumer brand that includes BlackoutX and HazeSticks and reaches customers in over 52 countries.

Additionally, SinglePoint has raised more than $300,000 and has signed a Letter of Intent to secure an additional $1 million in funding. The move provides management with ample capital to execute its business plan, while avoiding debt repayments that can eat into cash flow and reduce flexibility over time. It's also a rare development for a development-stage company in the cannabis industry.

Guided by a visionary leadership team with extensive experience in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital, SinglePoint continues to explore high-potential acquisition opportunities to grow and diversify its current holding base. The company also plans to uplist to the OTCQB and become a fully reporting company during the current fiscal year.

The company has engaged Milost Advisors to pursue acquisitions and financing facilities toward funding acquisitions, as well as to provide working capital. Milost Advisors will assist SinglePoint in the acquisition of undervalued companies with annual revenues of at least $50 million, and has already identified potential acquisition targets for the company to consider.

ABcann Global (TSX.V:ABCN) (OTCQB:ABCCF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight ABcann Global (ABCCF). Today, ABcann Global closed trading at $0.7132, off by 2.17%, on 210,978 volume with 225 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 60,672 and its 52-week low/high is $0.6171/$0.90.

NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announced the publication of an editorial featuring ABcann Global (TSX VENTURE: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF), a client of NNW that is a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality organic standardized medicinal cannabis. The publication is titled, "Canadian Cannabis Leaders Sharpen Focus on Increasing Yield, Plant Quality." It shines a light on the companies blazing a trail through Canada's legalized cannabis space. To view the full publication, visit: https://www.networknewswire.com/canadian-cannabis-leaders-sharpen-focus-increasing-yield-plant-quality/

ABcann Global (TSX.V: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF) ABcann Medicinals, Inc. is a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality organic standardized medicinal cannabis. One of the earliest licensed Canadian medical marijuana producers under Canada's federally-controlled Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), ABcann has five years of operating experience in the burgeoning medical marijuana space. The company currently owns and operates a fully functioning 14,500 square foot facility in Napanee, Ontario. Additionally, ABcann owns 65 acres of real estate with proper zoning and existing infrastructure in place to support the construction of another production facility of up to one million square feet.

In a November 2016 report, market research firm Canaccord Genuity Group forecasted that the medical marijuana market in Canada could see sales in excess of $8 billion by 2024, creating a sizable opportunity for the country's licensed producers (LPs). The research firm also noted that the "rigorous process of becoming a licensed producer of cannabis in Canada imposes significant barriers to entry and there will be a shortfall of supply in a legalized market in the short-term." This market barrier serves as a strategic advantage for ABcann as it prepares for its highly-anticipated IPO, which is currently scheduled for April 2017.

Canaccord's synopsis of the Canadian cannabis industry is supported by recent market activity, as companies sporting one of the illustrious Canadian government licenses for medicinal production have recorded strong growth following IPO. Canopy Growth (OTC: TWMJ), one of the largest fully-licensed Canadian marijuana growers, saw share prices skyrocket by more than 700 percent in the months following its initial offering. Aphria Inc. (OTC: APHQF), another licensed grower, climbed by more than 900 percent following its IPO. Other companies that have recorded huge growth since going public include Aurora Cannabis (OTC: ACBFF), climbing nearly 900 percent, and SupremePharma (OTC: SPRWF), which soared more than 1,300 percent.

With these market trends in mind, ABcann's impending IPO is one that prospective investors in the marijuana sector will want to explore. Recalls from some of the biggest players in the Canadian cannabis industry have highlighted the considerable learning curve that LPs face in today's market, which makes ABcann's proven track record in the market all the more noteworthy. The company has built a reputation over the years for its best-in-class standardized approach to growing cannabis, including the thoughtful omission of pesticides and a computer monitored growing technique that allows ABcann to minimize the risks of variance in its yields and ensure the creation of consistently high-quality products.

This technique, which the company calls the ABcann Advantage, has helped it record a customer retention rate of 94.7 percent alongside 30 percent month-over-month customer growth. When combined with ABcann's current yield rate, which it has measured at roughly 100 percent greater than the industry average, the company has constructed a strong foundation upon which to build a sizable presence in the global cannabis industry. This global growth potential is illustrated by ABcann's partnership with Israel's Syqe Medical, producer of the world's first selective-dose pharmaceutical grade medicinal plant inhaler. After visiting the company's production facility, Perry Davidson, founder of Syqe Medical, noted that ABcann's production technologies put it "in a class with the best in the world" in its ability to produce standardized pharmaceutical grade cannabis.

ABcann's entry into the public sector is being guided by a seasoned management team, board of directors and advisory board that feature well over a century of combined industry experience. Ken Clement, the company' founder and executive chairman, has been the key component and driving force behind ABcann's development since its inception. His vision of standardized production and dosage sets ABcann apart in the medical cannabis sector. Clement is joined on the company's management team by CEO Aaron Keay. Keay brings more than a decade of capital markets experience to ABcann, having played a role in raising approximately $250 million for public and private market issuers.

Notably, ABcann also has access to the 'Father of Cannabis Research', Raphael Mechoulam, PhD, through its board of advisors. An organic chemist and professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mechoulam was the first scientist to isolate both cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and he has received more than 25 prestigious academic awards, including the Rothschild Prize in Chemical Sciences and Physical Sciences in 2012.

With more than 65 acres of growth capacity, a healthy cash balance to fund upcoming construction efforts, steady sales growth, industry-leading yield rates and an established operations team in place, ABcann is well-positioned to compete in the rapidly-expanding Canadian medicinal cannabis industry. These factors, along with the company's ongoing global expansion into the European, Australian and Israeli markets, show why ABcann Medicinals' upcoming public offering fits the bill as "Canada's Next Medical Marijuana IPO."

Bollente Companies, Inc. (BOLC)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Bollente Companies, Inc. (BOLC). Today, Bollente Companies, Inc. closed trading at $0.80, even for the day, on 2,770 volume with 4 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 1,421 and its 52-week low/high is $0.20/$1.21.

Bollente Companies, Inc. (BOLC) is in the early stages of developing a diverse portfolio of companies, targeting disruptive technologies that positively impact the environment and emerging economies. Their current focus is on high-efficiency electric tankless water heaters, manufactured and sold under "trutankless", a division of Bollente, including a line of economy tankless water heaters sold under the Vero name. Units are available for both residential and commercial application.

The primary Bollente advantage is their use of advanced technology, superior to previous tankless systems, together with a growing U.S. and global market. Traditional water heaters are one of the costliest appliances to operate. The two primary energy sources used in U.S. homes are electric and natural gas, with less than half of U.S. homes having natural gas available. In addition, there are no significant electric whole home tankless manufacturers.

The U.S. Department of Energy now requires tanks of 55 gallons or more to have efficiency levels requiring expensive heat pumps to achieve. Bollente's trutankless electric tankless water heater employs specialized sensors for constant water temperature, solid state electronics, and proprietary software, resulting in one of the most efficient heat exchangers ever produced. The technology includes smart grid and home automation capabilities, remote control and monitoring, and even smartphone alerts. It also allows adjustable custom power management settings, so that users can further enhance energy usage and performance. It is now estimated that tankless heaters used in every home would save over $8 billion annually in the U.S. alone.

By maintaining 99 percent efficiency, Bollente's trutankless heaters use less energy than tank heaters, while providing the convenience of always-hot water. The system only uses power when there is demand, producing water to exact temperature, within one degree, even with sudden changes to input. Wireless apps allow for remote settings, notifications, and monitoring, and models are compatible with existing home automation and energy management systems. The technology also reduces size, for easy location, and the system's self-flushing design provides up to 20+ years of maintenance free operation, significantly reducing upkeep and replacement costs. This becomes an additional environmental benefit since roughly 8 million used water heaters are dumped in landfills every year.

Bollente has also announced the formation of Bollente International, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary, for the international production and sale of trutankless systems. Taking advantage of growing interest in their technology, Bollente International is working with an international manufacturing firm for the production and distribution of trutankless systems throughout Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, with the first step being the testing and certification necessary to meet the various international standards.

Bollente has made electric tankless water heating compelling to a major consumer market, both in and outside the U.S., offering economic as well as operational efficiency and convenience, attractive to builders as well as to end consumers. Disclaimer
