Aerosonic Corp. (AIM)

We are highlighting Aerosonic Corp. (AIM), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Trading on the NYSE Amex, Aerosonic Corp. is a leading supplier of precision flight products for commercial, business, and military aircraft. They mainly engage in the manufacture of aircraft instruments and displays. The Company has four primary product groups. These are Integrated Cockpit Displays, Digital and Mechanical Standby Displays, Sensors, and Probes. Aerosonic Corp. has their headquarters in Clearwater, Florida. Locations of the Company include Clearwater, Florida and Earlysville, Virginia.

Aerosonic Corp.'s roots go back to 1953. This is when the first instruments underwent manufacture in a small facility in Clearwater, Florida. Today, they are a leading supplier of technology-based Integrated Displays, Digital and Mechanical Standby Displays, and the latest in sensors and probes for commercial, business and military aircraft.

Aerosonic acquired Avionics Specialties, Inc. from Teledyne Industries, Inc. in 1993. In 2007, they acquired Optec Technologies, a manufacturer of cockpit glass display solutions. The Optec Technologies acquisition is a significant component of Aerosonic's strategic plan. It provides them with the expertise and products to compete on a larger scale across a wider number of aircraft models.

Skilled craftspeople assemble each mechanism by hand. This is to maintain quality and reliability, the Company's trademark for fifty years. They also conduct relentless quality inspections throughout the production cycle.

Aerosonic markets their products to manufacturers of corporate and private jets, contractors of military jets, the United States government, and private aircraft owners. They sell their products directly through their sales personnel. They also sell their products through distributors and commissioned sales representatives, who then resell to aircraft operators.

Aerosonic Corporation announced in May that they received a contract to build complex Aerodynamic Test Equipment for the Overhaul Division of Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. (HAL). This contract with Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. will initially include hardware, software, and training. The new equipment, once operational, will allow HAL to provide in-country support for multiple aircraft types. Consequently, this will generate a requirement for component parts that Aerosonic will supply.

On July 9, 2010, Aerosonic Corporation announced that they received a contract to build complex Aerodynamic Test Equipment for Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI). This deployment of highly engineered test equipment from the Company’s growing Air Data Test Equipment product line will further expand global support for Aerosonic’s Air Data sensor products.

Brand Neue Corp. (BRNZ) Unveils Energy Efficient, High Lumen Output 120 Watt LED Lighting Fixtures

Brand Neue today announced an addition to their product line of commercial and industrial LED lighting solutions. The company unveiled a super energy efficient, high lumen output 120 watt high bay LED fixture. The new low cost Luma Vue 120 Watt High Bay fixtures are now one-to-one replacements for conventional 400 watt metal halide lighting fixtures and consume 70-80% less electricity.

The company also announced the first order of its LED Lighting Product Line from its newly appointed Hawaiian distributor. This initial order will be shaped to Brand Neue’s Honolulu-based distributor over the next 30 days. The cost of energy in Hawaii is among the highest in the country, making energy saving LED lighting, such as the company’s products, an ideal solution for some of the state’s ongoing energy challenges.

Of course, the market for Brand Neue’s LED lighting fixtures will be much larger than just Hawaii. By replacing traditional 400 watt metal halide fixtures with the company’s 120 watt LED fixtures, commercial and industrial customers will be able to make significant reductions to their energy consumption. Less heat will be produced as well, lowering air conditioning costs. This in turn will further lower electricity usage and a company’s overall carbon footprint.

The good news from the company has propelled the stock solidly higher in today’s trading. Earlier in the day, Brand Neue traded at 1.13 a share – up $0.21, or 22.8%. For more information on Brand Neue and its new LED products, please visit the company’s website at www.brandneue.com

VizStar, Inc. (VIZS) Uses Commission Program To Draw Clients And Control Costs

One of the growth tools used by VizStar Inc., a growing aviation charter broker doing business as Celestial Jets, is their hefty commission package. By offering independent contractors and employees the opportunity to make significant sums by identifying and servicing clients, VizStar leverages its marketing efforts and encourages an expanding customer base. It also helps to control costs since money is paid only after needed services are rendered.

Commissions range from 10% to 35% of the cost of the flight, and are estimated to average approximately 17% to 20% of the total flight charge. Commissions obviously depend upon normal business factors such as competition in the applicable market, and basic supply and demand. The company gives initial flight discounts to increase its customer base, and thus commission margins are lower as it ramps up its operations.

If a prospect is generated from the company’s own marketing efforts, then the contractor or employee is normally paid 30% of the commission, as compensation to work with the customer and finalize the transaction. If the flight opportunity originated from the contractor’s or employee’s own relationships, then the employee or contractor normally receives 60% of the full commission.

Revenue is formally recognized once persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, services have been performed, the sales price is fixed or determinable, and collectability is probable. (In general, the company recognizes net revenue as being the difference between the gross amount paid to it by its customers and the amount it remits to the provider of the chartered flight.)

The company allows customers the right to cancel brokered airline trips up to 24 hours prior to departure for domestic flights, and up to 48 hours before departure for international flights. Payment is due from the customer no later than when the right to cancel expires and revenue is formally recognized once the flight is completed (or scheduled to complete if the flight was cancelled too late). The company accepts advanced deposits from customers as pre-payment for multiple flights in the future, and these amounts are deferred until the right to cancel expires.

With this well thought-out and extremely competitive commission program, VizStar is in an excellent position to increase market share in the growing jet charter industry. According to the FAA: “The demand for business jet aircraft has grown over the past several years. New product offerings, the introduction of very light jets, and increasing foreign demand have helped to drive this growth. In addition, corporate safety/security concerns for corporate staff, combined with increasing flight delays at some U.S. airports have made fractional, corporate, and on-demand charter flights practical alternatives to travel on commercial flights. Despite the hard impact of the recession felt in the business jet market, the forecast calls for robust growth in the long-term outlook, and predicts business usage of general aviation aircraft will expand at a faster pace than that for personal/recreational use.”

Revolutions Medical Corp. (RMCP) Begins Clinical Applications and Validation Process of Its Software Tools

Revolutions Medical Corp. is a safety medical device and software application company. Its products include the FDA-approved RevVac safety syringe, safety blood drawing device and safety IV catheter. The company also provides RevColor, RevDisplay and Rev3D – software solutions and proprietary tools that are compatible with standard MRIs.
The company announced today that it is beginning collaboration with H. Keith Brown, PhD, Professor of Anatomy at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, on two clinical applications using their proprietary magnetic resonance software tools. Professor Brown is a pioneer of color MRI.

One clinical application is for the differentiation and characterization of intracranial hemorrhages by color MRI automatic segmentation. The other application is for characterization of intracranial masses by color MRI automatic segmentation. These studies will be the first of their kind to examine the use of RevMed’s proprietary MRI software tools.

The studies will look at how the company’s tools can enhance diagnostic confidence in the diagnosis of tumors, cysts, and other masses and to aid in distinguishing between older blood and new blood for concussions and other head injuries. This is the beginning of the validation process for the use of the company’s MRI tools to be delivered through its software as a service (SAS) model.

Janel World Trade (JLWT) Posts Record Q3 Results; Offers Positive Guidance for Remainder of Fiscal 2010

Janel World Trade Ltd., a global integrated transportation logistics and environmental services provider, today announced its financial results for its fiscal third quarter and first nine months ended June 30, 2010.
For the three months ended June 30, 2010, Janel posted record third-quarter revenue of $21.0 million, up 35.3 percent compared to same quarter fiscal 2009, marking the highest third-quarter revenue in the company’s history.

Janel also achieved record revenues for the second quarter of 2010, fueled by the “economic diversity” of the company’s customer base, which resulted in growing shipping demand for the company’s core transportation, customs and logistics services.

Third quarter 2010 net income was $166,634, or $.009 per fully diluted share, as compared to a third quarter 2009 net loss of $(109,597), or $(.006) per fully diluted share.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2010, Janel reported total revenue of $57.2 million, up 6.2 percent from the first nine months of fiscal 2009. Net income for the nine-month period of 2010 was $215,182, or $.012 per fully diluted share, as compared to earnings of $732,550 from the 2009 reported net loss of $(517,322), or $(.028) per fully diluted share.
“We are very pleased that our third-quarter results have continued to reflect the significant turnaround in our core business units from the same nine month period in 2009. The $732,550 year to date improvement in earnings from 2009 is a testament to the success in our corporate planning, strategy and the business plan execution by our people,” James N. Jannello, executive vice president and CEO stated in the press release.

Jannello also gave his forecast for the fourth quarter of 2010.
“Looking ahead, our expectation is for continued improvement in our financial results for the remainder of 2010, based on a continuing modest recovery in global economic conditions. Our customers are reporting an improvement in their businesses and they too remain cautiously optimistic about the remainder of the year. Having just experienced excellent shipping volumes in July, the first month of our final quarter for 2010, our expectation is that we can finish fiscal 2010 with at least a 12 percent growth in revenue from year-end 2009,” Jannello stated.

Jannello concluded by noting the company’s plans to boost its core segment and its plan to expand certain areas of business.
“We are continuing to focus on growing our core transportation logistics segment and our plan to add established books of business with higher than industry standard margins. We are exploring opportunities to expand existing traffic lanes and services that generate higher operating margins, which will continue to enhance the profitability of our business and add to the impressive business turnaround story we are writing,” he stated.
