The implant can restore function to a knee and relieve pain. Often this procedure is done in lieu of a full knee replacement.

The QualityStocks Company Corner

General Environmental Management Inc. (GEVI)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight General Environmental Management Inc. (GEVI) Today, General Environmental Management Inc. closed trading at $0.22, which was down 4.35 percent. Their volume today was 82,836 shares.

General Environmental Management Inc. (GEVI) continues to implement their revised business model to expand from an environmental services only company to an enterprise that begins with the treatment and disposal of non-hazardous wastewater at their subsidiary, Southern California Waste Water (SCWW), and expands to include a full spectrum of environmental services for their clients.

General Environmental Management Inc. (GEVI) recently shifted its business focus from hazardous waste field services to the fast growing water treatment and waste-to-energy markets. Growing its business organically and developing state-of-the-art systems for operations, sales, compliance, finance, and human resources which can then be deployed at other acquired facilities, the company aims to establish a nationwide network of environmental facilities.

The strategic decision to shift the company’s focus was made after an all inclusive analysis of GEVI's opportunity in the environmental management business. Although the company could have worked through the current economic downturn and built revenue in its field services business, management believed that shareholders would be rewarded by moving the company into the higher margin, faster growing business segments.

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. The global waste-to-energy market, on the other hand, is a $19.9 billion market with expected CAGR of 6.7% over the next five years.

The company’s management team believes that 2010-2011 will be years of enormous growth. GEM’s change of focus is also expected to result in margins up to eight times greater than those of the previous hazardous waste services only model. With a very selective and calculated acquisition strategy in place, GEVI is poised for continued success.

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 $0.1440, which was up 1.41 percent. Their volume today was 32,500 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

Micro Identification Technologies, Inc. (MMTC) – Bacteria Wars

If you added up all of the people who have ever died in all the recorded wars in history, a number some scholars estimate to be perhaps 30 million, it would not approach the number of people who have been killed by bacteria. The greatest of destructive technologies are no match for nature’s invisible bugs, the microscopic prokaryotes we call bacteria, which even today manage to kill several million people every year.

Numbers like this make it tempting to think of bacteria as a singularly bad thing. But quite the opposite is true. Bacteria are an integral and vital part of life on the planet, including human life. In fact, bacteria are believed to be the first organisms to develop the capability to use solar energy to make organic compounds. It is thought now that plants actually acquired this capability by capturing bacterial cells, which became their chloroplasts, the organelles that carry out photosynthesis, the ultimate basis of almost every form of life on earth.

So bacteria have been here since the beginning, and it’s little surprise that they can be found virtually everywhere, even within us. There are roughly ten times as many bacterial cells in your body right now as there are human cells, most of which pose no threat, or even aid in the life process. And yet bacteria weren’t even known to exist until 1676, when Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, a Dutch tradesman and self-taught scientist, first observed them using a magnifying lens of his own design. And it wasn’t until 200 years later that the work of Louis Pasteur and Robert Koch helped solidify the idea that such germs could be the cause of disease.

Since that time, science has made great strides in the understanding of bacteria, resulting in an arsenal of chemical and radiological weaponry to combat the worst offenders. Nevertheless, bacterial pneumonia, whooping cough, cholera, bacterial meningitis, tetanus, and other bacterial diseases, remain among the world’s greatest killers, taking the lives of millions of people around the world annually, primarily in less developed countries. In addition, bacteria can cause major problems with crops, livestock, and other supportive elements of human life. Even in developed countries, bacteria are seeing a comeback. The modern paranoia about bacteria has led to so many anti-bacterial products that are only partially effective, that bacteria have grown stronger by interacting with them. In addition, the fear of pesticides that has promoted so-called organic foods has resulted in a bacterial presence in food that wasn’t an issue before.

Even though most bacteria are harmless, and in many cases even beneficial, the relative handful of dangerous bacteria continue to challenge our technologies and their application. Part of the problem, of course, is that bacteria are simply hard to see and thus avoid. The presence of potentially problem causing bacteria, in water, food, hospital surfaces, processing plants, or anyplace else, is not an easy thing to detect. A determination usually involves taking a sample and sending it off to a suitable laboratory, where it is cultured and grown, and then analyzed by trained technicians. It can take days or even weeks to get an answer, and there is a cost. As a result, an endless amount of unnecessary contamination occurs, in this country and around the world.

Although giant pharmaceutical companies remain the biggest players in the war against bacteria, one of the most unique breakthroughs in the science of bacterial detection and identification belongs to a little company out of San Clemente, California called Micro Identification Technology (OTCBB: MMTC). The company has developed a way to identify 23 different species of pathogenic bacteria, just minutes after completed culturing. In addition, because the required sample is so small, the culturing time itself is also cut in half. The bottom line is much faster processing, at a tiny fraction of the normal cost.

It’s all done by laser light that is scattered off bacteria cells suspended in water, creating light patterns that are unique for each species. The company’s proprietary software quickly analyzes the patterns to come up with a determination. Analysis can be done on-site by standard personnel, reducing or eliminating the need to ship samples off to laboratories.

Other publicly traded small-cap companies involved in the battle of the bug include the following:
• Tasker Products Corp. (PINKSHEETS: TKER) – Engages in the manufacture, distribution, and marketing of products using its patented pHarlo technology, a process that inhibits bacteria growth.
• PolyMedix Inc. (OTCBB: PYMX) – Uses a proprietary computational platform to design molecules that mimic the activity of proteins, a different approach to fighting drug-resistant bacteria.
• Rad Source Technologies Inc. (PINKSHEETS: IRAD) – Develops non-nuclear irradiation products to kill bacteria and other microbes for a variety of applications.
• Nuvilex Inc. (OTCBB: NVLX) – Creates all-natural health and lifestyle products, including Citroxin, an eco-friendly antibacterial disinfectant.
• Food Technology Service Inc. (NASDAQ: VIFL) – Provides gamma radiation services for various food and non-food anti-bacterial and sterilization applications.

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) Offers Expert Solutions For All Types of Cards

Consorteum Holdings Inc. is a global solutions provider for the financial services, payment and transaction processing marketplace. The company uses its expertise to provide a customizable “right” solution for each and every specific need. One such area where Consorteum provides solutions is in the card market – including payroll, gift and loyalty cards. Here is a brief overview of each type of card the company provides to its clients:

Payroll Cards – Payroll cards provide employees with immediate access to their payroll funds no matter where they may be located. Each pay period, the employee’s funds are automatically deposited into their individual card account by their employer rather than mailing out a paper check. Cardholders can use their cards to obtain cash and pay for purchases. Payroll cards are an ideal solution for temporary workers, students and employees who work remotely.

Re-Loadable Prepaid Cards – Re-loadable prepaid cards are designed for people looking for multiple use functionality from their card. Stored value cards are safer than cash and reduce risk for purchases made online or over the phone. Many retailers offer re-loadable cards as a convenient way for their repeat customers to pay for products and services, while maintaining brand loyalty. Based on the specific program, these cards can be reloaded at selected retail locations, online or at the bank.

Non-Reloadable Gift Cards – Non-reloadable gift cards frequently have a pre-set denomination value and are designed as a one-time use card. These cards are traditionally designed for use at specific retail chains or alternatively as gift cards that can be used at any merchant that accepts major credit cards.

Benefit Cards – Prepaid benefit cards have been developed so that federal, state, municipal and provincial governments can deposit social assistance payments directly onto a prepaid card instead of issuing millions of manual checks to recipients. Healthcare benefit cards are designed to be loaded with a monetary value by healthcare benefit suppliers. Cost effective and re-loadable, these cards give their clients increased control over their own benefit expenses.

Rebate Cards – Rebate cards are similar to non-reloadable retailer gift cards. The card is issued to the mail-in rebate recipient rather than a traditional paper check. The rebate card enables the recipient to use their rebate monies at almost any retail location, thus increasing customer satisfaction.

Loyalty Cards – Loyalty establishes a critical relationship between the individual consumer and the provider. Consorteum’s loyalty programs can be customized to target specific industries or merchants, such as grocery store chains. The company’s card identifies the consumer accumulating points and provides them with the opportunity to redeem points for pre-selected rewards. The card also enables the loyalty provider to track the activities of their consumers spending habits.

In addition, Consorteum is involved with merchant discount rates. These are fees charged to a merchant in order to accept payment from any of the major credit card companies. Consorteum has established relationships with several large processors to purchase transaction processing at a competitive rate. In turn, the company offers these services to its merchant clients.

General Environmental Management, Inc. (GEVI) Implements New Business Model to Drive Profitability and Higher Margins

General Environmental Management Inc.’s focus remains on implementing its revised business model to expand from an environmental services only company to an enterprise that begins with the treatment and disposal of non-hazardous wastewater at its subsidiary, Southern California Waste Water (SCWW), and expands to include a full spectrum of environmental services for its clients. The company’s ultimate goal is to establish a nationwide network of environmental facilities.

“GEM has been providing a premium level of environmental solutions to clients in the Western Region of the United States for over seven years,” stated Timothy Koziol, Chief Executive Officer of GEM. “In 2002, we researched the landscape of environmental service companies and determined there was a need for a higher level of service in the Western U.S. Our team then began building a business model centered on GEMWare, our proprietary software designed to give GEM and its clients the data needed to properly manage regulated waste, a Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facility (TSDF) for the consolidation of waste, and a network of service centers.”

Mr. Koziol continued, “Last year, based on the current economic changes, GEM’s Board of Directors decided the Company should change its focus from a purely services based company to an enterprise with a foundation in a fixed based treatment and disposal facility, like SCWW. With that decision we sold both service lines, the mobile treatment services business and the hazardous waste services only business, and acquired SCWW, a non-hazardous wastewater treatment facility in Santa Paula, California. Our plans are to grow the business organically and develop state-of-the-art systems for operations, sales, compliance, finance, and human resources at SCWW which can then be deployed at other acquired facilities.”

Bill Mitzel, President and Chief Operating Officer of GEM, added, “In the environmental sector all regulated waste must be ultimately treated and disposed of properly at permitted facilities. Because of this, the final treatment and disposal facilities generally have greater stability in their revenues streams and higher margins. SCWW is a tremendous asset because of its ability to treat and dispose of non-hazardous wastewater. We are excited about our business strategy to push greater volume through SCWW and develop the kind of systems we created previously for efficiency, increased revenue, greater margins and scalability.”

“We were thrilled to sell SCWW to GEM and become part of their growing wastewater plans,” said Doug Edwards, Chief Strategy Officer of GEM and former owner of SCWW. “Our management team believed there was more potential and growth available if we joined with GEM. SCWW is the first piece of what we expect to be a much larger network of non-hazardous wastewater facilities. We believed in our future with GEM to the extent that we sold CLW, the parent company of SCWW, to GEM prior to the completion of the sale of its hazardous waste services only business to Luntz Acquisition (Delaware) LLC.”

Mitzel commented, “Our business model, centered around a permitted, non-hazardous waste, fixed based treatment and disposal facility, like SCWW, generates greater margins for us than those achieved by our previous model. Our change of focus has resulted in margins up to eight times greater than those maintained by our hazardous waste services only model.”

Koziol added, “The water industry domestically is a $120 billion market and growing with increasing demands from industry, government and consumers. Globally the water market, which exceeds $400 billion, is third in size behind only power generation and oil. Diminishing world water supplies will only aid the Company in securing more non-hazardous wastewater business in the future. Within the water industry, we believe the wastewater sector has great potential for building value by developing the type of systems needed for profitable and efficient operations that can be deployed for greater scale. We look forward to building a growing enterprise of wastewater facilities utilizing the experience of our management team.”

Koziol concluded, “GEM’s new business model is more in tune with the needs of today. Our experienced teams have managed to build real value with our state-of-the-art SOP systems. Our systems are completely scalable, using the SCWW platform, for regional and national expansion. GEM will continue to grow as we build organically and seek out acquisitions and reformulate them to the GEM standards. We believe that 2010-2011 will be years of enormous growth for GEM. As GEM prepares for an incredibly active year, we have dedicated ourselves to ensuring that our shareholders are kept apprised of news and information as events occur.”
