IDO Security, Inc. (IDOI), headquartered in New York with a subsidiary in Israel, focuses on developing solutions for shoes-on weapons metal detection. The company's flagship product, the patented MagShoe™ system, instantly and accurately detects metal items concealed on or in footwear, ankles or feet without requiring the removal of shoes. Taking only 3-4 seconds to scan, the detection system solves possibly the most problematic issue in the security checkpoint routine.

The MagShoe is produced at the company's main manufacturing facility in Rishon LeZion, Israel where it offers local sales and support via a worldwide network of industry-leading distributors and system integrators. Designed for security and loss prevention at high-security venues and checkpoints, IDO Security's products are currently in use at international airports, cruise lines, government agencies and other locations requiring strong security.

The company's detection systems employ state-of-the-art sensors and algorithms to detect weapons and other controlled metal articles. By providing accurate measurements, the MagShoe solutions keep false alarms at minimum - detecting potentially dangerous items while ignoring metal typically found in footwear such as heels, zippers and ornaments. The advanced technology reduces the number of manual inspections required, allowing personnel to focus on the real threat.

President and Director Michael L. Goldberg guides the direction of the company with an extensive business and legal background spanning more than 30 years. Prior to joining IDO Security, Mr. Goldberg spent 17 years as the Chairman, CEO and one-time President of RX Medical Services, a medical company that owned and operated small rural hospitals, clinical laboratories and MRI/CT centers across the US. He has served on the boards and as a member of audit and compensation committees for a number of public companies.

VizStar, Inc. (VIZS.OB) Flys Well Ahead of Competitors

Private aviation broker VizStar Inc., dba Celestial Jets, is unique in its industry, with some very specific things going for it. Headquartered in New York, the company provides upscale charter aviation services to entertainers, athletes, executives, and even government agencies. And it does it all on an as-need quick-response basis, without demanding membership or initiation fees. Customers just call and fly from any point to any other point, using any one of 5700 available aircraft, completely avoiding the wait and the hassle normally associated with air travel.
• The company offers competitive charter rates, but without the upfront charges, an important differentiator in a very competitive, though expanding, marketplace.

• Instead of having to maintain a fleet of its own planes, limiting availability and increasing fixed costs, the company has access to thousands of outside charter aircraft. The customer can have any size plane required, anywhere in the world, with only a few hours notice.

• They offer every conceivable option, from customer pickup and delivery, to food and business service requirements, making it as easy and pleasurable for the customer as possible.

• The company has laid out a definite growth strategy, acquiring the assets of jet charter businesses which have suffered from the recession. They’ve already identified a number of prospective targets, potentially generating over $40 million in annual revenue and $4 million in operating earnings.

• By using technology to auction off vacant seats on private aircraft, the company helps maintain the lowest possible costs.
• Customers will be able to book flights via the Internet and mobile applications.

Add to this the fact that their market continues to grow. 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.”

The reservation was made two days ago (Sept. 22) as part of the stock repurchase program, pursuant to which the Company is able to buy back shares of common stock via the open market or individually negotiated transactions.

President and CEO of SECX, Jonathan Elster, confidently asserted that this extension of the repurchase program validates the Company’s steadfast commitment to increasing shareholder value and proving to the wider investment world that SECX “represents a compelling investment opportunity”.

Elster cited robust 2010 financial data and a clear growth strategy for 2011 and beyond as evidence of the Company’s ability to not only continue to develop the business but also to make new strides into exciting opportunities and novel prospects that translate into future corporate/financial growth.

Since inception of the repurchase program in August of last year, the ball has steadily been moved down the field. This extension brings the authorized aggregate for repurchases to $350k, with a total of 51,608 shares (average cost of $2.36/share) already tucked under its belt as of the end of June this year.

Structuring of open market operations leading to repurchase of stock was designed in full compliance with Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Rule 10b-18 and SECX thus bears no obligation to acquire a specific number of shares and may suspend/terminate at any time at the discretion of the Board.

Working capital will fund the repurchase program, with shares acquired under it ending up retired, restored to the status of authorized and unissued shares, or added to treasury shares. Either way, the percentage ownership of all existing shareholders will increase as the program progresses.
