Since its inception in 2002, the Company has grown at a compounded annual rate of 48% to generate annual revenues of $37M from only $2.3M.

This strategic decision was made after an all inclusive analysis of GEVI's opportunity in the environmental management business.

Within the U.S. alone, the water industry is a $120 Billion market that is expected to grow at 6-7% over the next year. On a global basis, the industry size exceeds $400 billion annually and increasing with the demands of a growing world population.

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) 

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV). Today National Automation Services, Inc. closed trading at $0.147, which was up 5.00 percent. Their volume today was 80,000 shares.  

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) is a public holding company focused on designing, engineering, installing and maintaining automated control systems for such business applications as waste water treatment, water treatment, airport security, bottling plants, power plants, metals, mining, breweries, food processing, tire making, textiles, plastics and nearly all production activities.  

Dominant players in the $500 Billion national and international automation controls market include Siemens, Honeywell, Fisher Controls, Johnson Controls and others. In addition to the multi-nationals, it has been estimated that there could be as many as 300 local and regional firms providing automation control services. In general, these companies have an edge on the larger behemoths because they can better respond to the needs of local business and municipalities.  

Unfortunately, for these smaller companies, they compete in a limited market space, have stunted growth prospects and have no way of monetizing their asset value. NAS aims to capitalize on this condition by acquiring and integrating the strongest local and regional players into a new organization that would allow for the synergies and efficiencies of a national company while keeping the competitive advantages of decentralized management and service.  

Of the 300 local and regional automation companies, 42 meet the company’s acquisition criteria; 11 of which have been targeted for acquisition over the next two years. NAS projects year-end 2010 revenues of more than $47 Million and year-end 2011 revenues of over $140 Million predicated on meeting its targeted acquisition schedule. With a solid business plan in place, NAS has a firm foundation to generate strong cash flow and increase shareholder value over the long-term. Disclaimer

General Environmental Management, Inc. (GEVI) Acquires Exclusive Rights for PetroMax Treatment Technology

Today before the opening bell, General Environmental Management Inc. announced that its subsidiary, Southern California Waste Water (SCWW), has acquired exclusive licensing rights to market the PetroMaxTech treatment chemical and process known as PetroMax as part of its service to the oil and gas industry.

Tim Koziol, CEO of GEM, commented, “This technology provides SCWW with additional capabilities to service a core segment of our client base, the oil and gas industry. As a non-hazardous wastewater treatment facility, SCWW is the treatment option of choice for our clients, and we are always looking for additional means to service our clients’ needs. The PetroMax process is an excellent example of meeting the needs of our current clients who provide SCWW with a substantial portion of our volume in non-hazardous liquid waste while also providing the impetus to add new clients.”

“We are thrilled to offer what we believe is an industry changing treatment process,” added Doug Edwards, GEM Chief Strategy Officer and Executive Vice President for Corporate Development. “The great merit of the PetroMax process is that it can generate savings of 30% to oil producers and refineries who struggle to move thick oil sludge. This can literally save a million dollars or more for a large tank cleaning.”
In addition to oil and gas production and refineries, SCWW has acquired the exclusive right in North America to market PetroMax to the shipping industry. Edwards explained, “PetroMax will save enormous money as shippers use PetroMax to pump their oil sludge with ease and clean their tankers in a fraction of the time currently required.”
A third aspect of the license is for the stimulation of downhole oil production. “Put simply,” said Edwards, “PetroMax allows thick oil to come out of the ground quicker.”

Mr. Koziol stated the following in conclusion, “We look forward to marketing PetroMax and sharing with our shareholders how this process both enhances our current wastewater services at SCWW and brings us into the broader oil and gas service industry. The rights to PetroMax provide GEM the ability to move quickly into new geographic markets and develop a wastewater network.”

ImmuneRegen BioSciences (IRBS) and MPI Research Agreement Aimed at Getting Homspera® to Phase 1 Human Clinical

IR BioSciences Holdings, Inc.’s wholly-owned subsidiary, ImmuneRegen BioSciences, Incorporated®, the development stage biotech firm squarely focused on the adult stem cell compound Homspera® (which boosts the immune system, accelerating the healing of wounds and remediating influenza, and can also be used as a vaccine adjuvant), has teamed up with preclinical contract research organization, MPI Research, in a strategic collaboration agreement aimed at procuring Phase 1 human clinical studies of the amazing new drug Homspera.

CEO of ImmuneRegen, Michael Wilhelm, explained that this agreement with MPI enables immediate satisfaction of the FDA-required safety studies, and welcomed the rock-solid “independent validation” of Homspera’s value to the industry provided by this relationship with MPI, projecting that the studies would produce the data required to “support planned INDs (investigational new drugs) for indications such as influenza, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and cancer”.

The agreement harnesses the power of MPI’s industry-leading analytical research capabilities while satisfying both parties with written-in mutually beneficial financial incentives, creating an accessible foundation for what Mr. Wilhelm called “visibility to potential new partners”, which he indicated would only increase as the development team’s milestones are achieved.

Wilhelm called it a pivotal time for the Company, pointing out that this relationship is a confirmation of management’s analysis that the Company is significantly undervalued.

Chairman and CEO of MPI, William U. Parfet, MBA, affirmed the synergistic upsides of this cooperative agreement, suggesting what savvy investors always know; that within dynamic industries like the drug development sector of today, such partnering often produce huge new capital draws, promising substantial profit and ROI.

“This collaboration reflects the flexible, solution-based mindset of each organization.” said Parfet, who heads up the Michigan-headquartered provider of analytical/bioanalytical services, discovery and safety evaluation services which defines itself according to scientific knowledge and experience, integrity, teamwork, trust and an on-going commitment to Sponsor relationships.
