Bio-Key Maintains Guidance Amidst Low Cash Flow

Bio-Key International (NASDAQ:BKYI) has reiterated its full year revenue guidance of US$ 8 million to US$ 12 million despite lacking the cash reserves to manufacture the products.

In its second quarter results announced on Tuesday (August 14), the company reported that its total revenues declined to US$ 748,141 from US$ 886,881 compared to the previous year’s Q2 results.

Further, the company’s revenues for the six-month period was US$ 1.5 million versus US$ 2.3 million in the same period last year. The company attributed the decline to the timing of larger software and hardware deals.

The company reported that it had a net working capital of US$ 3.6 million as compared to US$ 4.7 million on December 31, 2017.

Known for its biometric solutions, Bio-Key International has both hardware and software products with its hardware portfolio ranging from finger scanning devices to padlocks. The company has software solutions ranging from encrypting user data to biometric fingerprint authentication softwares for securing user data.

Last year, the company generated US$ 6.3 million in revenue and revealed in its earnings call on Tuesday the revenue ratio between hardware and software is 70 percent to 30 percent.

Mike DePasquale, CEO of Bio-Key International, said on the call that hardware could again contribute to a significant portion of its revenue this year, but that the split could change to 60 percent to 40 percent.

With the company required to generate US$ 3.2 million in each of the next two quarters to meet its guidance, questions on the earnings call were asked on whether the company has the cash to continue to grow with the revenue.

“It depends on the timing, it depends on the size of orders, it depends on the term, so … I really can’t answer that question,” DePasquale said.

DePasquale explained the company is looking at options to supports its business and has factoring arrangements in place.

“It certainly takes more cash for us to build inventory…buy parts and pieces and components, to be ready to ship on a short term bass,” DePasquale said. “We have a credit line that we put in place. A number of years ago, actually two years ago we’ve not drawn down on our utilized.”

Recently Bio-Key International has secured numerous partnerships across Latin America, Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Its most recent partnership was with Claro announced on August 2 with the Latin American telecom company selecting Bio-Key software to secure access to customer data.

“As we’re expanding our international operations, as we have more irons in the fire, as we’re selling to a broader base of customers in not only various industries, but in various geographies, I think we’ll get more visibility into our business, but that may not happen for another year,” DePasquale said.

Following Tuesday’s announcement, shares of Bio-Key International closed the trading session on Wednesday (August 15) at US$ 1.79 with the stock down 0.6 percent over the two day trading period. On TipRanks, the share has a moderate buy ranking with an analyst target price of US$ 5 which translates to an 185 percent upside from the current price.

The stock has a sell ranking on TradingView with 16 verticals against, seven neutral and three in favour.

Crop Advances Its San Bernardino Dispensary Application and Increases Ownership in California Farm

CROP Infrastructure Corp. (CSE:CROP) (OTCMKTS:CRXPF) (“CROP” or the “Company”) announces it has received confirmation that its San Bernardino dispensary application has passed stage one of the application review process. As previously announced on July 5th 2018, CROP has agreed to finance the purchase of real estate on the granting of a California dispensary license. The proposed dispensaries will operate under the brand, “Emerald Heights”.

Furthermore, the Company is pleased to announce it has increased its ownership from 30% to 49% for its “Emerald Triangle” cannabis production facility tenanted by “Hempire” in Humboldt California. This 30,000 square foot production facility sits on approximately nine acres and consists of a 10,000 square foot medicinal cannabis greenhouse facility and an additional 20,000 square feet of recreational licensed canopy.

As previously announced on August 9th 2018, harvesting at the Humboldt operation recently began at the first of five 2,000 square foot greenhouses and is expected to continue at a rate of one greenhouse per week. As each greenhouse is harvested new starter plants will populate the canopy space. Once the 10,000 square feet of plants have been taken down, the additional 20,000 square feet of canopy will then be harvested.

CROP Infrastructure Director & CEO Michael Yorke states: “This is an exciting time for CROP as our tenant begins its first harvest in California which makes this an ideal time to increase our ownership in the project from 30% to 49%. Our Humboldt facility is located in one of the most important cannabis jurisdictions in the US and potentially the world known as the Emerald Triangle. With the advancement of our dispensary application we are now moving towards assisting tenants in becoming fully vertically integrated in the State of California.”

The Company will purchase the additional 20% of Humboldt for total consideration of $ 1.0 Million CAD by issuing 5,000,000 shares at a deemed price of $ 0.20 per share; 100% of these shares will be escrowed for 12 months, with 25% becoming free trading every 3 months thereafter.

About Humboldt Holdings LLC

On site are five 5,000-gallon water tanks, a well and pump house and a 30 x 60 ft. drying shed. The property is zoned for a 10,000 square foot medical and a 20,000 square foot recreational cannabis license.

Ripple Exec Says Company is Targeting the Large Financial Market in China

Ripple Targets China

Ripple, the third largest cryptocurrency project by its total market cap, confirmed that it is targeting the large Chinese market with its cross-border blockchain payment technology, CNBC reported this morning. Ripple targets China despite China’s anti-cryptocurrency reputation? Here’s why.

Ripple Targets China

Jeremy Light, VP of European Union Strategic accounts at Ripple, had a phone interview with CNBC and said, “China is definitely of interest, it is definitely a target.“

Earlier this year, Ripple signed a deal with the Hangzhou-based financial institution LianLian International. This partnership is aimed at improving the cross-border transactions between …

A Bullish Bond Argument That Hides in Plain Sight

Panel Explores Risks of Adapting Cannabis Business to New Market

As cannabis markets continue to open across the globe, companies are eager to translate products and brands into emerging new areas of the sector. As such, a panel at this year’s MJBizCon INT’L in Toronto will cover the challenges companies face when interacting in foreign markets.

Jennifer Sanders CEO of equity firm of CNS Equity Partners will lead the panel during the second day of the conference on Wednesday (August 15).

As part of our coverage of the MJBizCon INT’L,  the Investing News Network (INN) had the opportunity to chat with Sanders about her panel during the conference and the strategy for her equity firm.

Looking for Cannabis Stocks?

Read our report to find market data, important news and stocks to watch!

 

Sanders explained her panel will evaluate the need for companies to understand there are multiple operational challenges and pitfalls within the cannabis industry innately that can affect the move into a new geographical market.

The executive said the first thing she looks at when evaluating companies with intentions to make the jump into a new market are their investment advisory teams.

“If someone does not have or they don’t have access to someone who has that international advisory, international council auditing, tax… There’s really no way that they are going to be able to navigate properly, it’s extremely expensive to bring these people on,” Sanders told INN.

Capitalization plays a big role in expansion for Sanders, as she explained it the process of going into a foreign space for a company is a lot more expensive than projected.

Another factor for Sanders is how translatable a product or a concept or the brand itself will be in the new market. “Are people in, say, Southern California going to adopt a brand that came from Canada and what speaks to them about that.”

Landscape of investment in the cannabis space and growth of health/wellness

CNS Equity Partners has a focus on investing based on impact methodology, essentially which companies have “strong philanthropic business practices” or are performing in an environmentally and socially responsible way.

Sanders told INN there is a correlation for cannabis and hemp to be adopted within the health and wellness market space, which she said in its entirety is outpacing the growth of cannabis.

One of CNS’ portfolio companies, The Green Heart, is a cannabis dispensary offering an entire holistic approach to the sector in Oregon. Its stores offer consumers juices, salads and yoga classes. The company also has an approved cannabis license.

According to Sanders, The Green Heart will begin offering franchise licenses in 2019. The dispensary will setup the new shops for the franchisee adopters including operating the store, doing inventory management and keeping everything compliant.

“I think that’s also a really unique way of entering the industry of having a store like that but having the time to learn the way that this business works, that’s really exciting to me,” she said.

Investor takeaway

When asked about the areas of interest for investment in the cannabis space, Sanders said she has noticed a lot of product and brand side. While expressing some concerns for the cultivation side of the industry, Sanders said investors have been high on retail.

Following the announcement from Ontario’s Progressive Conservative government to open the retail market to private companies for the sale of recreational cannabis, the interest on the retail strategy from cannabis companies has gained momentum as a top metric for investors.

A Depressed Economy And A Silver Boom

Math test could earn collectors a profit

Have you ever done the math puzzles where a series of numbers are laid out and then you are asked what the next number is?

Try it this morning.

The numbers are 106,108, 39,281, 18,730 and 9,503.

What is the next number in the sequence?

The answer is something we would all like to know – at least those of us who are following sales of the San Francisco Mint 2018 Silver Reverse Proof Set.

If you can figure out the answer, you will be able to determine whether the set will sell out.

Maximum mintage is 200,000.

All the benefits to speculators that accrue in an instantaneous sellout are out of the question. That boat has sailed.

However, secondary market sellers who eventually can claim they are offering a sold-out product will have an easier time.

But will they be able to?

What the sequence of four numbers represents is the sales increase week to week of the reverse proof set.

First report was 106,108 sold.

The following week, an extra 39,281 were sold.

This put the running total at 145,389.

The next week, an additional 18,730 were sold to bring the running total up to 164,119.

A gain of 9,503 was just reported by the Mint.

The running tally now is 173,622.

What do you think the fifth number in the sequence will be?

My guess is 4,700, roughly half this week’s sales increase, which was also roughly half of the prior week’s increase.

With sales standing at 173,622, adding another 4,700 would leave the set 21,778 short of a sellout.

If the rate of sales keeps dropping by half each week, the set will never sell out.

However, there is another force at work.

When total sales get close enough to a sellout number, there is almost a gravitational pull exerted on buyer behavior to push sales to the sellout number.

Is this week’s 173,622 sales total close enough to have entered that gravity zone?

It is certainly a close call.

My guess of 4,700 additional sales next week would be an indication that gravity has not gone to work.

What do you think?

If you get the answer right, you could earn a profit on the secondary market.

Bold Ventures Acquires Additional Ground at J&B Lithium Project

Bold Ventures Inc. (TSXV: BOL) (“Bold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of 28 mining claims that comprise approximately 503 hectares or 1242 acres. These claims are located contiguous to the Company’s Jean claim group that is part of Bold’s J&B Lithium Project. The subject claims are also contiguous to and on the east side of the Parole Lake patented mining claims held by Rock Tech Lithium Inc. (please see J&B project details on our website www.boldventuresinc.com)

The claims were acquired to cover the potential eastern strike extension of the historical No. 4 Dike within the Parole Lake patented claims. The No. 4 Dike was estimated to contain 1,689,000 tons at 1.30% Li2O from 4893 m (16,053 ft.) of diamond drilling.  This information is from an unpublished report by J.P. Walter in E.G. Pye’s report dated 1965, reference: Pye, E.G. 1965. Geology and lithium deposits of the Georgia Lake area, District of Thunder Bay; Ontario Department of Mines, Geological Report No. 31, 113p. Accompanying map, Map 2056, Georgia Lake Area.

Two diamond drill holes completed by Rock Tech Lithium Inc. in 2011 intersected the No. 4 Dike on the eastern side of the Parole Lake patented claims. Hole PL-11-01 and PL-11-02 were located approximately 250 and 300 m respectively from the boundary with Bold’s newly acquired claims. Hole PL-11-01 returned 7.29 m @ 1.76% Li2O (including 5.15 m @ 2.29% Li2O) and Hole PL-11-02 returned 5.41 m @ 1.25% Li2O (including 3.0 m @ 1.77% Li2O). Reference: Caracle Creek International Consulting Inc., Author Adrian Peshkepia, M.Sc., P. Geo., Drill Report For 2010-2011 Winter Drilling Program, June 14, 2011, prepared for Rock Tech Lithium Inc.

Management believes that the No. 4 Dike described in the historical work referenced above, within the Parole Lake patented ground, remains open along strike to the east. The Company regards the Georgia Lake Pegmatite Field as a large fertile Lithium bearing region that displays high potential for significant new discoveries.

The J&B Lithium Project now encompasses a total of 3,057 hectares or 7,551 acres within two claim groups named the Jean claims and the Barbara claims.

The terms of the option agreement call for the payment of $ 2,000 cash and the issuance of 100,000 common shares of Bold to the Vendor on closing and the expenditure of at least $ 10,000 on the Property before the first year anniversary of closing. An optional payment of $ 3,000 and 150,000 common shares of Bold is due on the first year anniversary of closing. Subsequent optional payments over the next two years total $ 75,000 in cash and/or common shares (in any combination at Bold’s option) and $ 75,000 in work expended on the property.

Upon fulfilling these optional terms Bold will earn a 100% interest in the property subject to a 1.5% Net Smelter Royalty (NSR) in favour of the Vendor. At any time until a production decision is made on the Property, the Company shall have the right to purchase from the Vendor a 1.0% NSR for $ 500,000 leaving the Vendor with a 0.5% NSR in the Property. After a production decision is made, if the 1.0% NSR has not been purchased, the Company shall have the right to purchase the 1.0% NSR at any time thereafter for $ 750,000. The transaction is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Bold is currently planning a prospecting, sampling and geological mapping program scheduled to commence this month.

In other news, the Company is pleased to report that a prospecting and mapping crew has been mobilized to its Stover gold property to carry out an initial program of geological mapping, prospecting and sampling.

The technical information in this news release was reviewed and approved by Gerald D. White, B.Sc., P. Geo., a qualified person (QP) for the purposes of NI 43-101.

About Bold Ventures Inc.

In Ontario, the Company has recently optioned the Stover Gold Property covering approximately 20 kms of the Goudreau-Missanabie Shear Zone that is host to numerous past and present gold producers. At the Koper Lake Project, centrally located within the Ring of Fire and directly adjacent to the Eagles Nest nickel-copper massive sulphide deposit, the Company has earned a 10% carried interest in the Blackhorse Chromite resource and a 40% working interest in all other metals with the opportunity to earn an additional 10% carried interest in the Black Horse chromite and an additional 40% working interest in all other metals. Bold and its subsidiary Rencore Resources Ltd. have extensive holdings comprised of over 18 claim groups in and around the Ring of Fire area of the James Bay Lowlands. Bold has the option to earn a 100% interest in the Wilcorp gold property (subject to a 1% NSR).

On Tuesday (August 14), CannTrust Holdings (TSX:TRST) reported a 99-percent rise in revenue as part of its second-quarter results for 2018.

During the quarter, CannTrust’s net selling price per gram lowered from last year to C$ 8.36.

Eric Paul, CEO of CannTrust, said the company was pleased with its results for the second quarter and is well positioned as a developer of cannabis products for the medical market.

The company revealed its earnings took a hit from C$ 1.5 million in costs for the ramp up of its Niagara Perpetual Harvest Facility, where expansion construction started in June.

According to the report, the company held a C$ 11.7-million position in cash as of June 30.

The president of the company, Brad Rogers, added that the operation of the company’s Perpetual Harvest Facility shows the ability for CannTrust to produce high-quality yields and reduced costs.

“Operating a facility of this scale, CannTrust is well-positioned to meet the increased Canadian and global demand for cannabis,” Rogers said.

The 450,000-square-foot hydroponic facility is expected to produce 50,000 kilograms of cannabis per year, before the completion of the 600,000-square-foot expansion. CannTrust estimates the final facility will produce over 100,000 kilograms of cannabis per year.

As part of its quarterly developments, the company highlighted that of the entirety of its cannabis sales, 60 percent represented extracts. The patient count for CannTrust also grew to over 45,000 active consumers of its products.

Investor takeaway

The company holds a “strong buy” rating on the analyst data aggregator site TipRanks, thanks to the reviews from three cannabis analysts.

The most recent report on CannTrust, from Derek Dlay with Canaccord Genuity, gives the company a C$ 11 share price target. The aggregate price target from TipRanks is C$ 15.50.

Following an early dip for the stock, shares for CannTrust rose 3.33 percent. The company’s closing price on Tuesday was C$ 6.83.

The increase for CannTrust represents strong support for its results, as Tuesday’s trading session brought declines across the board in the cannabis space due to Ontario’s decision to delay retail sales of cannabis until April 1, 2019.

Maple Leaf Green World CEO: Near-term Cultivation and Sale of Cannabis for the Medicinal Market

Maple Leaf Green World (OTCQB:MGWFF,NEO:MGW) CEO Raymond Lai believes there are vast opportunities for cannabis companies tied to the growth of the North American markets.

In the interview below, Lai discusses the company’s facilities in BC, Nevada and California, the first of which will be completed within this year. Using its experience in eco-agriculture and greenhouse management, the company’s management team plans to position Maple Leaf Green World as a key cultivator for the medicinal and recreational cannabis markets.

Below is a transcript of our interview with Maple Leaf Green World CEO Raymond Lai. It has been edited for clarity and brevity.

Investing News Network: Please give our investor audience an overview of Maple Leaf.

Maple Leaf Green World CEO Raymond Lai: Maple Leaf Green World is a North American company concentrated on the cannabis sector. Our main focus is on providing cannabis-derived oil for medical use, as well as offering safe and high-quality cannabis for adult use. We have extensive greenhouse management experience, eco-agricultural knowledge and cultivation technology that can be applied directly to the production of high-quality cannabis products.

INN: How has Maple Leaf been developing its presence in the North American cannabis industry? Does the company have plans to expand to the international market?

RL: We currently have three projects which include Telkwa, BC; Henderson, Nevada; and Riverside County, California. Construction at our BC project will be completed before year end and our Nevada facility shortly thereafter. Upon completion, we will have over 47,000 square feet under roof. Immediately following, we plan to add 10 additional greenhouses to our property in California, giving us over 80,000 square feet under roof. Once these projects are completed, we will look to expand globally by exporting to countries where medical cannabis has been legalized.

INN: What is next for Maple Leaf and how does that fit into the company’s long-term plans?

RL: The completion of our projects in BC and Nevada will be a major milestone for us. This will enable us to begin cannabis cultivation and sales. Legalization of Canada’s recreational cannabis is set to occur in October of this year. This will not only open up a huge market for us, but it will also bring a lot of attention, legitimacy and advocacy to the medical benefits of cannabis. This is going to be a major industry and we have a lot of room to grow, both geographically and as a public company.

INN: Will the company’s primary focus be on medical or recreational cannabis?

RL: Maple Leaf’s primary focus is on medical cannabis to help patients achieve a quality of life. We are concentrated on producing high-quality cannabis and cannabis-derived oils and ultimately exporting these products to other countries that have legalized medical cannabis programs in place. However, with recreational cannabis soon to be legalized in Canada and already legalized in a number of states in the US, we also plan to launch recreational cannabis brands focused on providing a variety of products to market in both Canada and the US.

INN: How does Maple Leaf stand out within the medicinal cannabis industry?

RL: One of our advantages is our experience. We started off as an eco-agricultural company, allowing us to leverage over a decade of greenhouse management experience and cultivation technology that can be used directly for the production of high-quality cannabis products. We have also retained and are in the process of retaining a few key individuals with vast amounts of knowledge and experience in indoor cannabis cultivation. In addition, we believe we have a huge geographic advantage. Our land holdings in BC, Nevada and California have positioned the company strategically so that we can promptly respond to demand in both the medical and recreational cannabis markets in both Canada and the US.

INN: What other upcoming catalysts can investors expect for Maple Leaf?

RL: We will be making various announcements regarding the start of cultivation and production after our facilities are completed. This will include the sale of products, adding additional partners and entering into new markets to ultimately expand globally. We are really looking forward to seeing the continuous growth of our business and the rapid growth of the market.

Cannabis Industry Reacts to Ontario’s Retail Strategy

Following the Ontario provincial government’s announcement on how recreational cannabis will be sold once it becomes legal on October 17, the cannabis industry offered a variety of reactions.

On Monday (August 13), Ontario’s Progressive Conservative government unveiled its approach to the sale of legal adult-use cannabis, saying it will offer consumers online-only service until the establishment of retail shops from private players starting in April 2019.

Minister of Finance Vic Fedeli stated that the provincial government does not intend to be in the business of owning a network of cannabis shops.

Cannabis industry members offer reactions

Charles Taerk, president and CEO of Faircourt Asset Management, said the delay from the provincial government for retail shops has negative implications in the short term.

However, Taerk is optimistic in the long term thanks to the decision by the province to drop the plan of a government monopoly on cannabis shops. The executive also said there is potential for investors to strengthen their positions in companies set to experience declines due to the delay.

“There will likely be some negative trends to the names in the sector as short-term estimates on revenues and earnings are adjusted and moved out 12 months,” Taerk said. “We believe there is likely an opportunity to add to certain positions during this weakness.”

David Clement, a Toronto-based North American affairs manager at the Consumer Choice Center, said the decision by Ontario to embrace private retail is a win for consumers and smart public policy.

Clement added that not having stores with the start of legalization in Canada means consumers will continue to buy cannabis from illegal dispensaries.

“Simply put, relying solely on online sales until April 1 isn’t an accessible enough model to sway people away from the black market,” Clement said. He suggested the province should fast track the application process to allow legal cannabis shops to be available on October 17.

Canadian licensed producer Aurora Cannabis (TSX:ACB) announced on Tuesday (August 14) that it has already singled out over 100 locations for Aurora-branded cannabis retail shops in Ontario.

Through its partnership with Alcanna (TSX:CLIQ), Aurora will seek to establish its network of shops across the province once licensing applications become available. In Alberta, the duo already plans to have 37 cannabis shops following legalization.

Toronto-based law firm Aird & Berlis said in an email newsletter that it is interested to see if Ontario will use any of the licensing restrictions planned by other provinces for retail operators.

In Alberta, no person or entity can own more than 15 percent of the retail licenses for the province, while Saskatchewan has a fixed limit of 51 shop permits, according to the law firm.

Stocks take a dive following Ontario’s decision

During Tuesday’s trading session, most of the major cannabis stocks took took a hit from the delay in retail sales for Ontario. Canopy Growth (TSX:WEED,NYSE:CGC) closed with an 8.25-percent decline despite having a clear entry into the retail space with its acquisition of Hiku Brands (CSE:HIKU).

Other stocks like Aurora, Aphria (TSX:APH) and Cronos Group (TSX:CRON,NASDAQ:CRON) were also down 9.8, 9.54 and 3.09 percent, respectively, after the closing bell on Tuesday.

The Horizons Marijuana Growers Index ETF (NEO:HMJR), which tracks small-market-cap cannabis stocks across North America, suffered a 5.68-percent drop, according to the Aequitas Neo Exchange live tracker.

Horizon’s fellow cannabis-focused ETF, the Horizons Marijuana Life Sciences Index ETF (TSX:HMMJ), was also down 4.52 percent at market close on Tuesday. This fund holds close to 40 of the major cannabis stocks in the market.

The Canadian Index from Arcview Group’s Marijuana Index was down 22.33 percent on Tuesday. This index tracks 17 Canadian cannabis stocks like the Hydropothecary Corporation (TSX:HEXO), Organigram Holdings (TSXV:OGI) and Auxley Cannabis Group (TSXV:XLY).

Every listing of the Canadian Index was down on Tuesday, except for CannTrust Holdings (TSX:TRST), which announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2018.

According to Bloomberg, Canaccord Genuity cannabis analyst Matt Bottomley said on Tuesday that the Ontario news will result in a “long-term gain” for cannabis companies and investors.

Canadian licensed producer support group offers response

Avtar Dhillon, board chair for the Cannabis Council of Canada, a group overseeing the interests of licensed producers in Canada, said this move from Ontario will create a “truly competitive and inclusive landscape that will allow for law-abiding companies to more quickly replace the bad apples in the cannabis space.”

The executive director for the association, Allan Rewak, said it removes the cost of brick-and-mortar retail from taxpayers and instead puts it on the private sector to deliver.

Crypto Retirement Funds Pose Too Much Risk, Says SEC: Don’t Do It

cryptocurrency retirement funds

If you were planning on using Bitcoin to retire, you might want to think again. Why? Well, because the SEC has recently warned against cryptocurrency retirement funds.

Here’s why.

Cryptocurrency Retirement Funds

As people approach retirement, many are nervous about where they are sitting financially. For these reasons, people are turning to self-directed IRAs, which are savings accounts that allow for alternative investments.

When it comes to self-directed IRAs, typical investments include company stocks and precious metals. However, thanks to the crypto boom, virtual currencies have been added as an option.
