Primoris Services Corporation (PRIM)

SmallCap Voice, CRWE Finance, and CRWE Wall Street reported earlier on Primoris Services Corporation (PRIM), and we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Founded in 1946, Primoris Services Corporation is a holding company of various subsidiaries which cumulatively form one of the largest specialty contractors and engineering companies in the Western United States. The Company is also a leading water and wastewater contractor in the Southeast, and a specialist in designing and constructing complex commercial and industrial concrete structures in California. Primoris Services Corporation trades on the NASDAQ Global Market. The Company has their headquarters in Lake Forest, California.

The Company primarily serves the growing power and energy sectors. Primoris provides a broad spectrum of construction, fabrication, maintenance, and replacement services, as well as engineering services. They provide these to major public utilities, petrochemical companies, energy companies, municipalities, and other customers.

Primoris Services Corporation acquired James Construction Group in December 2009 and Rockford Corporation in November 2010. With these acquisitions Primoris has doubled their size and the Company’s national footprint now extends from Florida, along the Gulf Coast, through California, into the Pacific Northwest and Canada.

Recently, Primoris Services Corporation announced financial results for their third quarter ended September 30, 2010. The Company’s results for the third quarter of 2010 include the results of James Construction Group (JCG) and Cravens Services, Inc. (Cravens).

Revenues increased 116.1 percent to $230.4 million from $106.6 million in Q3 2009.  Gross profit increased by $7.7 million, or 38.3 percent, to $27.9 million for the 2010 third quarter from $20.2 million in the same period in 2009. This was primarily due to a $12.3 million profit contribution from the acquired businesses.

Gross profit as a percent of revenues decreased to 12.1 percent during the 2010 third quarter from 18.9 percent in the same period last year. This reflects the typically lower margin percentages on JCG's heavy civil projects and lower utilization of equipment and manpower in the West Construction segment. The Company had net income of $7.6 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared to Q3 2009 net income of $7.9 million, or $0.23 per diluted share.

With plans to continue aggressively pursuing this strategy, Uranium Energy Corp is well positioned to capitalize on the world’s first significant alternative energy boom. Disclaimer

Christmas Comes Early for Micro Identification Technologies, Inc. (MMTC)

In what must seem like an early Christmas gift for Micro Identification Technologies Inc. (MMTC), the U.S. Senate passed legislation Tuesday significantly increasing the ability of the government to put pressure on food processors and importers for safer food. Although the Senate bill has a number of limitations, and still faces uncertain prospects in the House, it represents a major push for more inspections, spurred by the recent spate of food contamination recalls.

Micro Identification Technologies, creator of the world’s first and only automated bacteria identification system, the patented MIT1000, has already been lining up funding and resources for production and marketing in preparation for increased demand. Their one-of-a-kind system, based on laser light and advanced pattern recognition software, dramatically cuts the time and cost involved in accurately identifying a variety of pathogenic bacteria. Though the system can be used in a wide range of environments and applications, their initial target is the food processing industry.

The Senate bill applies largely to fruits and vegetables and requires major players in the food chain to create detailed food safety plans. The FDA would create new safety regulations, including tougher standards for imports, and could require the recall of tainted foods, versus simply pressuring businesses to do voluntary recalls. The bill would also greatly increase required inspections of domestic and foreign food facilities.

All of this plays perfectly for MIT, which offers an automated way for inspections to be completed quickly and on-site at a cost far below traditional approaches. It is estimated that revenues for such rapid testing methods have expanded at an annual rate of over 9% since 1998, and already exceed $5 billion annually, figures that could easily be surpassed when or if the Senate bill becomes law.

Uranium Energy Corp. (UEC) Processes First Shipment of Uranium from Patlangana ISR Project

Uranium Energy Corp. was pleased to announce today that it has started the processing of the first shipment of uranium-loaded resins at its Hobson processing plant. Received earlier this week, the shipment consisted of 500 cubic feet of uranium-loaded resins contained within one of the company’s two U.S. Department of Transportation-approved tanker trailers specially built for this purpose.

Harry Anthony, Chief Operating Officer, stated, “Hobson is a state-of-the-art processing facility now operating under the supervision of experienced staff headed by VP Production Bob Underdown and Hobson Superintendent Greg Kroll. We are confident of standard and secure operations here. We will continue to ramp up production at the Palangana ISR project and the Hobson processing facility over the ensuing weeks and months.”

Converting uranium loaded resin beads to marketable yellowcake (U3O8) at Hobson includes stripping the uranium from the resin beads using a salt solution, precipitating the yellowcake slurry from the salt solution, filtering it from the remaining solution, then vacuum drying and packaging the yellowcake into drums for delivery. An animated video of the process can be found on Uranium Energy’s homepage: www.uraniumenergy.com

Zentric, Inc. (ZNTR) Updates Investor Community

Today before the opening bell, Zentric, Inc., an advanced battery technology company, issued a press release to update the investment community on its current initiatives.

As previously announced, Zentric has entered into a joint venture agreement to build and operate a battery manufacturing facility on approximately 7.4 acres of land provided by the joint venture partners. The company is now in the process of planning and designing the facility, which is anticipated to undergo construction in mid-2011.

Zentric is also in the process of building a strong management team. Last week the company announced the addition of Lee Harrison as Executive Advisor. Zentric is pursuing other prominent figures in the industry as well which are currently in talks to join.

The Research and Development team at the University of Hong Kong continues to perfect the energy storage designs with the addition of a new storage battery configuration. The new configuration consists of 3 electrolytes separated by membranes that have added storage capability, resulting in a more cost effective battery with greater storage capacities.

Simulated Environment Concept, Inc. (SMEV) SpaCapsule Adopted by BodySmart Franchise Following Results of Dermscan Study

Simulated Environment Concepts announced earlier this morning that its flagship SpaCapsule massage system has been incorporated into the BodySmart fitness training regimen. The company believes its further success in northern Europe and BodySmart fitness centers is attributed to favorable results of the Body Slimming Study conducted by the DERMSCAN Group.

The BodySmart exercise program is a 25 minute high-tech, full body workout; perfect for busy individuals. “The benefits of using SpaCapsule in conjunction with exercise include faster muscle recovery, decreased muscle fatigue, and pain-relief associated with muscle tension,” stated Dr. Ilya Spivak, Marketing Director of Simulated Environment Concepts (SE Concepts) and Co-Inventor of the SpaCapsule. SpaCapsule also reduces cellulite and improves skin elasticity, two prime initiatives in weight loss.

According to the press release, BodySmart franchises have been opening up all over northern Europe as consumers demand quicker workouts and improved results. “The demand for SpaCapsule following the Dermscan study has been absolutely incredible,” commented Graham Gibbons Director of SpaCapsule Ireland. “We have been contacted by many organizations interested in the SpaCapsule and we’re excited to have the BodySmart franchise on board.”

“The medical and aesthetic benefits of SpaCapsule make it the perfect addition to any gym or fitness facility seeking an overall improvement in health and wellness,” Dr. Spivak concluded. SE Concepts continues to execute an aggressive expansion strategy throughout northern Europe with more installations of the SpaCapsule in other franchise locations.
