Omni Bio Pharmaceutical, Inc. (OMBP)
SmallCapVoice and SeriousTraders reported earlier on Omni Bio Pharmaceutical, Inc. (OMBP), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Omni Bio Pharmaceutical, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company that lists on the OTCQB. The Company initially formed to explore new methods of use of an FDA-approved drug, Alpha 1-antitrypsin (AAT) also referred to as "plasma-derived AAT." AAT is purified from human blood and is widely believed to be the body's most powerful anti-inflammatory protein. Omni Bio Pharmaceutical is based in Greenwood Village, Colorado.
The AAT drug has a greater than 20-year safety record as an approved treatment for emphysema in AAT-deficient patients. Omni Bio Pharmaceutical’s initial strategy was based on licensing "methods of use" patents and patent applications that cover new indications for AAT and commercializing these via royalty agreements with existing AAT manufacturers. The Company’s initial markets were infectious diseases, including biohazards.
However, in 2009, Omni Bio Pharmaceutical changed their focus to auto-immune and inflammatory diseases such as Type 1 diabetes (juvenile diabetes). The Company is the licensee of patents and patent applications related to methods of use for plasma-derived AAT. At present, they hold three licenses with RUC in the areas of treatments for diabetes, graft rejection/cellular transplantation, bacterial disorders, and viral disorders.
They additionally hold a fourth license to an issued patent for the treatment of diabetes with a privately-held company, Bio Holding, Inc. To date, Omni Bio Pharmaceutical’s business efforts have been primarily dedicated to pursuing additional capital to fund SRAs related to evaluating the therapeutic effects of plasma-derived AAT on bacterial disorders, viral disorders and diabetes, and developing several synthetic fusion proteins involving Fc-AAT, and funding a human clinical trial using plasma-derived AAT to evaluate their therapeutic effects in the treatment of Type 1 diabetics.
Omni Bio Pharmaceutical is currently in negotiations with RUC and Konkuk University in South Korea for an exclusive license to patent applications covering Fc-AAT. In the second half of 2011, the Company started to look at novel alternatives to create Fc-AAT and filed provisional patent applications for compositions, methods and uses for Fc-AAT. Currently, Omni Bio Pharmaceutical is evaluating a variety of forms of Fc-AAT. The Company indicates that they will likely select one for further development.

Street Insider, TheStockAdvisor, MicroCap Gems, DrStockPick, CRWEWallStreet, BestOtc, PennyOmega, PennyToBuck, StockHotTips, CRWEPicks, CRWEFinance, and PennyTrader Publisher reported earlier on Aastrom Biosciences, Inc. (ASTM), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Aastrom Biosciences, Inc. is a regenerative medicine company developing patient-specific, expanded multicellular therapies for use in the treatment of patients with severe, chronic cardiovascular diseases. The Company’s commitment is to the development of stem cell treatments for critical cardiovascular diseases. Aastrom is currently evaluating their autologous cellular therapies in late-stage U.S. clinical trials. Founded in 1989, Aastrom Biosciences has their headquarters in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The Company's proprietary cell-processing technology enables the manufacture of ixmyelocel-T, a patient-specific multicellular therapy expanded from a patient's own bone marrow and delivered directly to damaged tissues. Aastrom has advanced ixmyelocel-T into late-stage clinical development. This includes a Phase 3 clinical program to study patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) and a planned Phase 2b clinical trial in patients with ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM).
Ixmyelocel-T is a patient-specific, expanded multicellular therapy, manufactured using the Company’s proprietary, highly automated, fully closed cell-processing system. Aastrom Biosciences’ patent-protected technology selectively expands mesenchymal cells, monocytes and alternatively activated macrophages, up to several hundred times more than the number found in the patient’s bone marrow. This is while retaining many of the hematopoietic cells collected from only a small sample (50ml) of the patient’s bone marrow.
Today, Aastrom Biosciences announced the appointment of Mr. Daniel (Dan) R. Orlando as Chief Commercial Officer. This is a newly created position at the Company. Most recently, Mr. Orlando was with Takeda Pharmaceuticals for more than 13 years in executive leadership positions in marketing, sales and business development, most recently as Vice President, Business Development for North and South America. Previously, he was with Abbott Laboratories for more than 11 years in progressive sales and marketing roles.

Duma Energy Corp. (DUMA)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Duma Energy Corp. (DUMA). Today, Duma Energy Corp. closed trading at $1.35, down 4.93%, on 3,032 volume with 7 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 7,382, and its 52-week low/high is $1.10/$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.

Duma Energy Acquires Interest in 5.3 Million-Acre African Concession
Duma Energy Enters Final Stage of Negotiations for African Concession
Duma Energy Provides Third Quarter Results and Demonstrates Positive Earnings
When Duma management points to the rapid increase in oil production from their wells in Galveston and Trinity Bay, just offshore form Houston, indicating that production has jumped from less than 100 BOEPD (barrels of oil equivalent per day) to over 500 BOEPD, and then states confidently that production should grow to over 1000 BOEPD by the end of the year, and 2500 BOEPD by the end of 2013, it’s not an example of executive wishful thinking. The numbers are simply based upon what has been tapped and what has been untapped.
The current 500 BOEPD is being produced by only a fraction of Duma’s available wells in the two bays. Specifically, out of the 130 wells the company has in Galveston Bay and Trinity Bay, only 27, roughly 20%, of the wells are currently active. As the other nearby wells come online, production will increase. At the same time, operational margins are expected to improve, directing more money to the bottom line.
More than beefing up Duma’s financial picture, this domestic productivity, including additional projects in Texas and other parts of the U.S., serves to finance the company’s exploration projects overseas. In particular, it currently supports Duma’s working interest in a 5.3 million acre petroleum concession in Namibia, Africa. Namibia is a small country of just over 2 million people, with a representative government that is considered one of the most stable in Africa. Duma obtained its interests through the acquisition of Namibia Exploration, now a wholly owned subsidiary.
The concession is located in the Owambo Basin in northern Namibia. The basin was formed primarily during the Proterozoic Era, and appears to contain the major elements required to produce a major petroleum system: source rock, reservoir rock, reservoir trap, and reservoir seal. Having a dependable source of income from domestic production gives Duma the opportunity to explore and develop what could become major finds.

Calling itself the healthy lifestyle company that truly lives and breathes the healthy lifestyle, MusclePharm recruited the industry’s top doctors and nutritionists, and then provided them with a state-of-the-art athletic and testing facility featuring the best equipment available:
• Woodway Treadmills
• Keiser Machines
• Hyperbaric Machines
• Hydroworx Pool
• Omega Wave Machines
• Stem and Ultra Sound Units
It’s the MusclePharm Sports Science Center Research Institute in Colorado, where their team of doctors and scientists utilize an advanced 6-stage research protocol, together with extensive field testing by professional athletes from the National Football League, Mixed Martial Arts, and Major League Baseball, to formulate a full line of nutritional supplements that are 100% free of banned substances. Their clinic can perform bone scans, blood work, ultrasounds, muscle and fat evaluations, kidney and liver tests, cortisol tests, reaction-time testing, and much more. This intensive combination of science and professional field testing is unique, and gives MusclePharm an important edge. Its products are now sold around the world, including thousands of retail outlets and online stores.
All this may seem like an unnecessarily big investment, but the sports nutrition and high energy supplements market is expected by some to top $100 billion in the near future, and any chunk of that is considered worth the effort. MusclePharm is gearing itself to become the nutritional supplement line of choice for serious athletes.

Mesa Energy Holdings, the Dallas-based E&P with an extensive portfolio of domestic holdings and an emphasis on growth via acquisition/upgrading sites, with multi-well, repeatable projects in low-risk basins being the central focus, reported the successful execution of some three-year leases on approximately 1,525 net acres today in Oklahoma’s Garfield and Major Counties, as well as closing on another 1,720 net acres held by production via the Farmout Agreement with Twenty/Twenty Oil & Gas, Inc.
This is some prime territory for accessing the Mississippian Limestone, and the Farmout deal in particular is notable for including an outright purchase of three vertical wells slated to fall under purview of the company’s Oklahoma-based operating subsidiary, Mesa Midcontinent, LLC. Mesa Energy is looking at late this year or early 2013 to commence a comprehensive drilling program in the Mississippian Limestone and is in ongoing due diligence to acquire additional interests to add to this enviable 3,245 net acre position.
The collective regional position in Major and Garfield Counties is known as the Turkey Creek Project and represents another superb addition to MSEH’s already rapidly flowing production pipeline, which now totals some seven primary sites in New York and Louisiana. Now with a serious footprint in Oklahoma, MSEH is intent on maximizing productive capacity at Turkey Creek and is acquiring new acreage held by production to further shore up the company’s footing.
With targets down about 7k feet in a nice, 500-foot thick layer and the Woodford Shale (another 50-80 feet) right beneath it as a tantalizing secondary, MSEH is eager to kick off the drilling program and get at those reserves. Speaking of which, were looking at a 300k-500k bbls per well in potential reserves from the Mississippian by all accounts, including the numerous published technical reports and SEC filings from regional operators.
CEO of MSEH, Randy Griffin, underscored the proven nature of the play, with extensive drilling in the region offering a good model for drill program results. Griffin called it a great opportunity for the company to setup exactly the kind of repeatable drilling situation they have focused on in Louisiana and elsewhere, accumulating acreage and eventual throughput momentum on proven targets in an area with abundantly clear success rates.
This emerging play is right in the sweet spot for MSEH: still young enough to be snapped up at prices that will potentially translate into big downstream shareholder ROI, yet established enough that there is a surfeit of high-quality well control and other data already in the public record.

The Guitammer Company, a low frequency sound technology company used by entertainment and theater audiences, today announced it has shipped new products to Pagnian Imports, its distributor for the Australasian market. Guitammer reports that product demand has a head start on the 2012 holiday season, with company sales to-date to Pagnian Imports already topping Guitammer’s full-year 2011 sales by more than 600 percent.
Guitammer says the significant hike in sales reflects continued acceptance of the company’s patented ButtKicker brand products.
Pagnian owner Hess Ghahramanian echoed the value of strong consumer sentiment.
“We are proud and also excited for the opportunity to partner with The Guitammer Company to distribute their fantastic products in Australia and New Zealand,” Ghahramanian stated in the press release. “The demand for the ButtKicker products has been huge in Australia, in fact the demand has often exceeded our stock levels so Guitammer’s increasing ability to have available inventory to meet our growing demand bodes well for sustainable sales growth in our markets.”
Increased year-to-date sales were also positively impacted by deeper working capital due to Guitammer’s successful private placement offering, which generated $1.6 million in new capital growth. Guitammer says this increase has enabled the company to secure inventory and ship products to meet demand.
“Our recently completed private placement offering has further strengthened the company’s working capital position, which has helped to drive an increase in our inventory levels commensurate with growing customer demand for ButtKicker branded products,” Mark Luden, CEO of Guitammer stated. “As a result we continue to grow revenues from our core business products as we are more favorably positioned to meet demand from key partners including Hess Ghahramanian and his team at Pagnian Imports.”
