Katanga Mining Limited (KAT.TO)

Today's Financial News reported previously on Katanga Mining Limited (KAT.TO), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Katanga Mining Limited operates a major mine complex in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Company produces refined copper and cobalt. They have the potential to become Africa's largest copper producer and the world's largest cobalt producer. Katanga Mining Limited is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. They have their headquarters in Baar, Switzerland.

The Company’s single-site operation, which comprises brownfield assets and new facilities under construction, will have one of the lowest unit production costs in the world, net of by-product credits. The January 2008 merger with Nikanor PLC, whose adjacent concessions had previously been part of the same mine complex, has consolidated Katanga Mining’s leadership position in the region and is expected to generate significant operating and financial synergies.

Katanga holds a 75 percent stake in two joint ventures with Gécamines, a state-owned mining company in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Katanga is committed to the socio-economic development of the Democratic Republic of Congo and the communities surrounding their operations, and place sustainable development as integral to the way they do business.

All assets and operations of Katanga Mining Limited are located in the Katanga Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is a vast country with immense economic resources, including an estimated 10 percent of the world's copper and 50 percent of its cobalt.

Katanga Mining Limited operates a large-scale copper-cobalt mine complex in the Democratic Republic of Congo through two joint ventures, Kamoto Copper Company (KCC) and DRC Copper and Cobalt Project (DCP). KCC and DCP are engaged in the exploration, refurbishment, and rehabilitation of the Kamoto/Dima mining complex (the Kamoto Project) and the KOV copper and cobalt mine, respectively in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Katanga's assets include the Kamoto Underground Mine and KOV open pit mine, providing sulfide and oxide ores respectively. Their assets also include Kamoto Concentrator and Luilu Metallurgical Plant for the onsite production of refined copper and cobalt.

The Company also has a number of other mines and plants that may be operated initially or at a later stage in the Company's development. These include the open pit mines Mashamba East, Musonoie-T17, and Kananga.

Earlier this month, Katanga Mining Limited announced their financial results for the third quarter of 2010. Total sales for the third quarter of 2010, were US$129.4 million, comprised of US$91.6 million (12,632 tonnes) for copper cathode, US$33.2 million for cobalt metal (902 tonnes) and US$4.6 million for copper concentrate (944 tonnes of contained copper). For the third quarter of 2010, the Company had a gross profit of US $30.3 million and net income of US$21.1 million.

Gray Television, Inc. is a television broadcast company that trades on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

Gray Television Inc. has their headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Company’s primary mission is to provide quality news and entertainment services to the local markets in which they operate. They have a commitment to local interests and a selective acquisition strategy, with these providing growth opportunities.

The Company’s operating results from the third quarter of 2010 exceeded their initial forecasts.  Gray experienced improvements in all major revenue classifications. This included local, national, and political advertising revenue, in the third quarter of 2010 compared to the third quarter of 2009. 

They experienced positive period over period results in the first and second quarters of 2010 and that trend continued in the third quarter of 2010.

Total revenue increased $18.9 million, or 28 percent, to $85.3 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2010 compared to the three-month period ended September 30, 2009.

The Company continued to earn consulting revenue from their agreement with Young Broadcasting, Inc. This agreement was effective August 10, 2009, and the increase in revenue from the agreement was due to it being in place for only a portion of the three-month period ended September 30, 2009.

Earlier this month, BlueLinx Holdings Inc. reported financial results for the third quarter ended October 2, 2010. Revenues increased 3.4 percent to $464.7 million from $449.4 million for the same period a year ago. The increase reflects a 5.9 percent increase in structural product sales and a 2.5 percent increase in specialty product sales.

Gross profit for the third quarter totaled $49.9 million, down 9.7 percent from $55.3 million in the prior-year period. Gross margins decreased to 10.7 percent from the 12.3 percent generated in the year earlier period. The decline in gross margin was largely driven by a sharp decline in underlying wood-based product prices during the quarter.

The Company incurred a net loss of $14.9 million, or $0.48 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2010. This is compared to a net loss of $13.5 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2009.

"Our overall performance for the third quarter was impacted by a lack of improvement in actual housing starts and continued deterioration of wood-based product prices," said BlueLinx President and CEO George Judd. "Total housing starts for the quarter fell 0.8 percent from year-earlier levels, while prices for key grades of structural wood products dropped 20 percent on average from the end of the second quarter. The price volatility seen in the last six months is some of the worst I have seen in my 25 years in this industry. This volatility in the wood markets had a negative impact on our margins during the quarter as our inventories returned to current market values. Despite this challenging environment, we increased sales by 3.4 percent while controlling our operating costs and generated approximately $33 million in cash from operations during the third quarter."

BlueLinx Holdings Inc. (BXC) closed Wednesday’s trading at $3.78, up 1.89%, on 61,118 volume with 284 trades.  The average volume for the last 60 days is 117,371.  The 52-week low/high is $2.24/$6.32.

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.

True 2 Beauty (TRTB) is a leading manufacturer and distributor of sexual potency pills and liquid products in the United States, with expansion efforts underway in other parts of the world. The company's line of current products currently include Libigrow (for men), Libigirl (for women), Libiliquid Shots and Libiliquid Relaxation Drinks. Made from only natural ingredients, the products are regarded as the most powerful over the counter herbal sexual and performance supplements available on the market.

In addition to being sold online, Libigrow products are sold throughout the U.S. in convenience stores, liquor stores, smoke shops, vitamin stores, independent grocers, and adult boutique stores, with potential in larger chains such as CVS, Walgreens and GNC to name a few. In fact, a major retail pharmacy chain has begun a regional trial in eight of their stores in southern Florida in preparation for a nationwide roll-out to begin in early 2011 for select Libigrow products – the first step to national expansion within the retail pharmacy chain network.

The company has recruited a trained and highly qualified full-time staff. In addition to their talented and well-seasoned designers, the company employs a team of photographers, web designers, a marketing and advertising director and assistant director, account managers in sales, in-house customer service representatives, a commercial ads designer and editor, and an in-house printing team for all promotional material.

Alex Hbaiu leads the company as CEO, president and director. He published several research articles and findings during his employment at Eli Lily Research Labs where he had the opportunity to work with some of the most talented and educated doctors and scientists in the world. Although founded with very little capital, via Mr. Hbaiu's expert leadership Librigrow has grown to over $10,000,000 in sales via "word of mouth" advertising alone. Disclaimer

IDO Security, Inc. (IDOI) Goes To China

When IDO Security first developed MagShoe™, the foot level security scanning device that eliminates the need for passengers to remove their shoes, it’s doubtful that anyone in or out of the company fully anticipated the level of interest around the world that would be generated. And now, based upon growing demand in the area, the company is traveling to China to train distributors on the latest iterations of MagShoe.

The International Marketing Manager for the company, Dani Werber, said of the trip, “We are most excited to be able to introduce our new state of the art models to the Asian marketplace, especially given our earlier success in placing the MagShoe™ in China. The strong interest shown in the new and improved models by our distributors is a testament to what we believe will be a much greater revenue opportunity throughout Asia as we see continued interest throughout Europe and the remainder of the world.”

MagShoe is seen by the company, and increasingly by airport and other security operations around the world, as filling a critical void in today’s systems by extending screening to the area around the lower legs and feet, an area not adequately covered by standard scanning systems. The product’s advanced design increases accuracy and minimizes safety concerns, without requiring the user to go through the trouble of removing their shoes. MagShoe integrates seamlessly with existing detectors, is very quick and easy to use, and is highly cost effective. But perhaps most importantly, with all the current complaints about the invasiveness and inconvenience of security checks, MagShoe is timely, perfectly filling a worldwide need.

“We are honored to provide Sutter Health’s West Bay Region with our resources and expertise to support its delivery of quality patient service to northern California residents,” stated Joseph J. Flynn, chief executive officer of AUXILIO. “We appreciate our Company’s long standing relationship with California Pacific Medical Center, and we are excited by the opportunity to expand our services, cost savings programs and operational efficiencies to the Sutter West Bay.”

“AUXILIO’s performance and execution of its MPS program has been a very valuable service that saved CPMC thousands of dollars and greatly increased our internal customer service over the past five years,” commented Craig Vercruysse, Sutter West Bay Region Chief Information Officer. “We are looking forward to extending that service to the Sutter West Bay facilities and enhancing our relationship with AUXILIO.”

Throughout 2010, AUXILIO has experienced unprecedented growth in the MPS market for health care. So far this year the company has been awarded five new MPS contracts which include over 15 hospital campuses and associated off-site facilities, significantly increasing the company’s revenues. Boasting 100% customer retention, the company achieves continuous multi-million dollar saving for its customers which is illuminated by its unparalleled level of service and solutions.
