$UUUU Leading Charge to Reduce U.S. Dependence on Foreign Sources of Uranium

April 28, 2020
  • U.S. government recently issued policy determinations aimed at revitalizing domestic mining industry
  • UUUU’s White Mesa Mill is only conventional uranium mill in the United States
  • Energy Fuels is largest domestic producer of uranium with assets accounting for over one-third of nation’s supply since 2006

Despite being the world’s largest consumer of uranium, the United States has almost zero capabilities in uranium mining, conversion or enrichment, forcing it to import the majority of its uranium and rare earth elements (REEs) from Russia and China. Energy Fuels Inc. (NYSE American: UUUU) (TSX: EFR), the leading U.S. producer of uranium, is leading the charge to reduce this major supply chain vulnerability, spurred by initiatives from the government to bring production back to the U.S. and to revitalize this segment of the domestic mining industry.

“America has become 100% dependent on uranium imports, with increasing quantities coming from Russia and its allies,” CEO Mark Chalmers explained during a recent corporate presentation (http://nnw.fm/SE2e8). “That should shock everybody because we are the largest consumer of uranium in the world.”

“Similarly, we are also dependent on imports of rare earth elements from China,” he said, referring to China’s 90% control of global markets for rare earth elements (http://nnw.fm/9eSs0).

This dilemma has spurred several initiatives by the Trump administration, including the president issuing determinations that declare rare earth elements essential to national security, the U.S. Department of Interior declaring uranium and vanadium (another metal produced by Energy Fuels) critical to America’s security and economic prosperity, and the pursuit of $1.5 billion in funds to purchase uranium directly from domestic producers to create a strategic U.S. uranium reserve. In addition, the President’s Nuclear Fuel Working Group released its report on April 23, 2020, which represents the strongest commitment since the 1970’s by the U.S. government to support domestic uranium miners.

“Energy Fuels been the largest producer of uranium over the last couple of years, and we have far more production assets, capacity and capabilities to increase production quicker and faster than any other U.S. company,” said Chalmers. Between 2017 and 2019, UUUU was the largest producer of uranium in the United States, with assets accounting for more than one-third of the nation’s supply since 2006.

Of particular interest to investors and the government is the company’s Utah-based White Mesa Mill, which has a licensed capacity to produce over 8 million pounds of uranium per year. This is the only conventional uranium mill in the country and the only facility in the U.S. able to process ore from hardrock mines.

In addition, the Energy Fuels holds two fully licensed, constructed and low-cost in situ recovery (“ISR”) mines in Wyoming and Texas. Moreover, uranium spot prices have risen 30% over the past two months, making Energy Fuels’ 500,000-plus pounds of existing uranium inventory more valuable, and the company’s “first-mover” advantage all the more important.

Besides uranium, the White Mesa Mill has other diverse businesses that include alternate feed materials recycling, land cleanup and the mining of vanadium – a critical metal used in the steel, aerospace and chemical industries. Vanadium is also used as a catalyst in next-generation, high-capacity, community-scale renewable energy batteries, and demand for the element is expected to grow as the market for green technologies expands.

Based in Lakewood, Colorado, Energy Fuels is the largest producer of uranium, and the leading conventional producer of vanadium, in the United States. The company’s production portfolio boasts more uranium production facilities, more production capacity, and more in-ground resources than any other producer in the United States, uniquely positioning the company to benefit from future price increases and directives by the U.S. government aimed at revitalizing the domestic mining industry.

$SGLB Breakthrough Technology Positioned to Enhance Sustainability for Manufacturing Industry

April 27, 2020
  • SGLB’s PrintRite3D(R) technology supports, enables wider adoption of 3D printing for scaled manufacturing
  • Fourth industrial revolution’s new manufacturing technologies can usher in a cleaner, more sustainable world
  • One of simple but substantial solutions that add to sustainability of 3D printing is assembly consolidation, or combining of several parts into fewer, multifunctional assemblies

In an industry that is “forever changing the way products are made” – specifically as it pertains to ushering in a cleaner, more sustainable world – Sigma Labs Inc. (NASDAQ: SGLB) stands out as a leading developer of quality-assurance software in the commercial 3D-metal-printing space. A recent World Economic Forum article, titled ‘These 4 Simple Solutions Can Help Make the Manufacturing Industry More Sustainable’, recognizes 3D printing as one such solution to enhance the industry’s success – and companies like SGLB are well positioned to help (http://nnw.fm/95xnG).

The fourth industrial revolution involves more than the transformative impact new manufacturing technologies – such as 3D printing – will have on companies and consumers, the article observes. “It’s also about how industry can usher in a cleaner, more sustainable world.”

“It’s foolish to deny the planet is rapidly approaching the day when the consequences of climate change will be unavoidable,” the article continues. “The question now facing many business leaders is whether – and how – we can both continue to build value for our shareholders and mitigate our impact on the natural world.”

One of the simple solutions that add to the sustainability of 3D printing is assembly consolidation, or the combining of several parts into fewer, multifunctional assemblies. “With fewer parts to transport, the process can make shipping networks more efficient, significantly reducing CO2 emissions,” the article states, going on to point out that, though the geometric flexibility of 3D printing makes it possible to create these multifunctional parts, additive manufacturing (AM) is still in its infancy when it comes to manufacturing production parts.

“In part, that’s because the story of the additive industry is really one of three distinct growth curves,” the article continues. “The first, beginning in the early 1990s, largely focused on research and development of the new additive technology. Today, the industry stands at the start of a new S-curve, which will see wider adoption of 3D printing for manufacturing, forever changing the way products are made.”

Sigma Labs has been on the cutting edge of the research and development taking place in the AM space and is already actively involved in supporting and encouraging the wider adoption of 3D metal printing through its PrintRite3D(R) product line. SGLB’s proprietary technology resolves the major roadblocks and costly quality-control challenges that slow down and even prevent the 3D manufacture of precision metal parts. The company’s breakthrough, computer-aided software product revolutionizes commercial additive manufacturing, enabling nondestructive quality assurance during production and allowing errors to be corrected in real-time.

Founded in 2010, Sigma is a software company that specializes in the development and commercialization of real-time, computer-aided-inspection (CAI) solutions known as PrintRite3D for 3D-advanced manufacturing technologies. SGLB’s advanced, computer-aided software product revolutionizes commercial additive manufacturing, enabling nondestructive quality assurance mid-production, uniquely allowing errors to be corrected in real time.

$SRAX Stock for Ads Program Helps Clients Retain Marketing Presence Amid Fiscal Belt-Tightening

April 24, 2020
  • SRAX has launched a Stock for Ads Program, allowing clients to pay for media solutions through stock payments
  • The company also offering customers subscriptions to its SRAX IR platform, helping publicly listed companies track shareholders’ behavior and manage investor outreach
  • In spite of sharp increase in online audiences, major advertisers have been forced to slash marketing budgets, leading to drop in ad prices

As of April 18, nearly six out of every ten people around the world were forced or urged to stay at home, measures which have contributed to a stunning fall in global consumption (http://nnw.fm/YQUu1). In the United States, retail sales plunged by 8.7 percent in March (http://nnw.fm/lApt5), the biggest decline on record – prompting major corporations to respond by slashing their marketing expenditures. With the ongoing situation in mind, digital marketing pioneer SRAX Inc. (NASDAQ: SRAX) has launched an innovative Stock for Ads Program. The initiative is designed to support their clients through this critical period by helping them procure media solutions in exchange for stock payments as a way to help businesses continue to engage with their customers and conserve cash (http://nnw.fm/D9MVt).

Consumer spending accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. economic activity, yet economists are predicting that consumption could decline by as much as 41 percent in the second quarter, relative to the same period last year (http://nnw.fm/7DTjM). However, U.S. ecommerce sales have been a bright spot within the sector, with online spending increasing by over 40 percent year-over-year since the state of national emergency was declared (http://nnw.fm/NtX2S). In fact, February marked the first month in US retail history where online shopping surpassed that carried out within ‘brick and mortar’ stores (http://nnw.fm/8psOP).

Companies hoping to capture a portion of these sales are handcuffed by budget restraints, however. According to the World Federation of Advertisers (WFA), which represents companies such as Unilever, Coca-Cola and Visa, 81 percent of large corporate advertisers are opting to defer ad campaigns, with over 57 percent of members revealing they had been obliged to reduce budgets “greatly or somewhat” due to the virus outbreak (http://nnw.fm/caqT5). SRAX has stepped in to address this unmet need through its stocks for ads program, being able to assist businesses capitalize on the significant captive audiences currently confined to their homes by helping companies increase their online presence without compromising their fiscal health.

“We understand what it means to be a publicly traded company and we want to help businesses continue, not halt their marketing efforts,” SRAX CEO and founder Christopher Miglino stated in a news release (http://nnw.fm/fRX5o). “With our custom media plans, businesses can attract and engage customers with digital ads, covering expenses up to a year in exchange for stock of their company.”

In addition to its marketing services, SRAX has offered its publicly traded corporate clients subscriptions to the Company’s investor intelligence and communications platform, SRAX IR. The platform, which enables companies to monitor their shareholders’ buying and selling behavior, carry out virtual investor meetings and develop insights which can be used to engage with current and potential investors, has become increasingly relevant given the heightened volatility in global markets.

Online advertising has been embroiled in an extraordinary paradigm this year. Facebook recently publicized that time spent by users across all of its apps has risen by 70 percent over the last few weeks (http://nnw.fm/1wYk1) while Snapchat reported a 50 percent increase in video calls through its app. However, and in spite of the increase in online audiences, the sheer breadth of companies freezing ad campaigns has led to a steep drop off in revenues for digital media platforms. Expedia and Marriott have been the latest companies to announce that they were slashing their marketing expenses, the former announcing an 80 percent cut in its annual ad spend while Marriott has halted all of its marketing efforts entirely (http://nnw.fm/gJ6Kv). This has led to digital ads costs declining sharply as Google, Twitter and other online ad companies have found themselves saddled with too much inventory.

In the brief history of digital media, there has never been a situation where a rise in online audiences has been met with a decline in advertisers seeking to attract their attention. Rather, companies have traditionally sought every opportunity to increase their marketing with research firm IHS Markit revealing that each dollar that companies spent on advertising in the United States last year led to $9 in sales (http://nnw.fm/Of3wC). Through its Stock for Ads program, SRAX has provided companies who would otherwise have been forced to reduce their marketing in a bid to conserve cash an invaluable opportunity to bolster their online presence during a tenuous time for the industry.

$GNPX Among 3 Penny Stocks To Watch With “Strong Buy” Ratings

I’m pretty sure that most people don’t think about penny stocks and analyst ratings at first. From what I’m sure many of you initially experienced, penny stocks have been known for volatile trading of “start-up” companies. Yet it’s important to keep in mind that just because they’re stocks under $5, it doesn’t mean they don’t have potential.

Most of this week, our writers have discussed penny stocks that hit it big this year. We’re not talking about stocks under $1 going to $2. We’re talking about cheap stocks under $5 that have moved higher than $40 in some cases. Check out some of these in our articles:

Honestly, no matter how you “feel” about penny stocks, there are a few things to consider before “writing them off” if you’re on the fence. For starters, some of these “no-name” companies attract “big name” financiers. While family offices will always lend money to penny stock companies, you can’t ignore the fact that so does Deutsche Bank, BofA, and even Wells Fargo. Another thing to consider is that analysts from these and other firms are also giving rating and issuing price targets for these stocks under $5.

So while the choice is yours, all I’m saying is don’t think all penny stocks are worthless names. The fact of the matter is that the vat majority actually have shown potential. Not only that but some of the more popular coronavirus stocks you’ve likely heard of, actually started as penny stocks. With this in mind, let’s see some names that analysts have given a “Strong Buy” rating to. Keep in mind, that analysts aren’t the end-all, be-all and you are ultimately responsible for determining if certain penny stocks are a “buy” or “sell” based on your research.

Strong Buy Penny Stocks To Watch #1: Trillium Therapeutics Inc.

Trillium Therapeutics Inc. (TRIL Stock Report) had a big day on Wednesday. Shares of TRIL stock jumped to highs of over $5 for the second time this month. If Trillium Therapeutics seems familiar, that’s because it is. We initially started to cover this penny stock back in December. At the time it was trading around $0.56. Prior to all of this coronavirus stock hype, Trillium was working on its TTI-621 immune therapy.

Jumping to this year and COVID-19 has dominated headlines. In the case of Trillium it has begun clinical trials of its TTI-621 and TTI-622. But the initial hype wasn’t stemming from a COVID-19 vaccine. Through all of this hype, Trillium has focused on its core model. Between its two treatments, the company is looking to address what’s known as a CD47-based treatment. This “CD47” is a protein found on cell surfaces but in most cancer cells, there are far more of this CD47 protein than there should be.

Jan Skvarka, President and Chief Executive Officer of Trillium said in a recent update, “While we expect a slowdown or potentially a pause in new patient enrolment in our TTI-621 and TTI-622 dose escalation studies, our strong financial position, with about $135 million in cash and investments, will enable us to navigate through this pandemic and continue to execute on our key strategic objectives.”

In March, attention shifted to Trillium after Gilead (GILD Stock Report) made a $4.9B bid for Forty Seven Inc. (FTSV Stock Report). The latter has a similar CD47 inhibitor for acute myeloid leukemia. Among analyst ratings, the majority have TRIL stock listed at “Strong Buy”. What do you think about TRIL stock? Comment below.

Strong Buy Penny Stocks To Watch#2: ReWalk Robotics Ltd.

Shares of ReWalk Robotics Ltd. (RWLK Stock Report) jumped over 30% with well-above-average trading volume on April 22. The company focuses on developing and commercializing exoskeletons to allow wheelchair-bound individuals to stand and walk. If it sounds like a familiar story, you may have also heard of a competitor, Ekso Bionics (EKSO Stock Report) and both are vying for market share.

This week both stocks saw noticeable moves. However, RWLK stock managed to win the battle of the percentage gains so far. Wednesday’s move echos a similar jump the medical device stock saw just last week. On April 14th the penny stock traded more than 6.9 million shares and jumped 68% in a single day. While this wasn’t as much the case for most of the April 22nd session, Power Hour trading saw a flurry of buying and even stronger aftermarket trading. Not only that but following the closing bell, RWLK hit a high of $1.31, which takes it right into “the gap”.

Here’s what I mean by that last part, back in February the stock gapped lower after announcing a discounted share offering. The difference between where it closed the day before and where it opens the day after the announcement is considered “the gap”. When penny stocks “enter the gap” while climbing higher, this could be considered a potentially bullish sign.

While there was no news to speak of on April 22, the volume can’t be ignored. Furthermore, among analyst ratings, the majority have RWLK stock listed at “Strong Buy”. What do you think about RWLK stock? Comment below.

Strong Buy Penny Stocks To Watch #3: Genprex Inc.

Genprex Inc. (GNPX Stock Report) saw its first day of above-average trading volume since mid-March. The penny stock jumped from an open of $2.02 to highs of $2.59 before closing at $2.36. However, it’s also worth noting that it traded more than 5 million shares when it normally trades less than 2.5 million on average. Needless to say, it piqued some interest on Wednesday. But similar to RWLK, GNPX stock gained more momentum later in the day than right off of the opening bell.

While the penny stock saw a steady climb before the afternoon, things started getting very active around 1:30 PM EST. This is when shares ran from around $2.15 to highs of $2.59. While there weren’t any corporate headlines on Wednesday, GNPX stock certainly attracted an audience. This came just a day after the company announced a new VP of Global Clinical Operations, Shannon Inman.

She’ll lead the clinical developmental strategies and protocol design while managing risk assessments. The trials include those with Genprex’s lead drug candidate, Oncoprex™. It is for non-small cell lung cancer and recently received Fast Track Designation for its combination with osimertinib, AstraZeneca’s first-line targeted EGFR TKI drug Tagrisso®.

Something else to note is that many traders were also discussing analyst ratings for the penny stock. Among analyst ratings, the majority have GNPX stock listed at “Strong Buy”. But as with the others, what do you think about GNPX stock? Comment below.

$POAI CEO Discusses Distinctive Business Model in Exclusive Interview

Predictive Oncology (NASDAQ: POAI), a knowledge-driven company focused on applying artificial intelligence (“AI”) to personalized medicine and drug discovery, today announced that its director and CEO Dr. Carl Schwartz was featured in an exclusive interview with NetworkNewsWire (“NNW”). In the interview, Dr. Schwartz discussed Predictive Oncology’s distinctive business model, as well as significant changes management is making to position the company for the future. “Predictive’s major asset is its Helomics subsidiary and its proprietary database of over 150,000 cancer tumors covering over 137 types of cancers, with over 30,000 tumors related to ovarian cancer, which is sort of our specialty. In fact, this is the largest inventory of its kind in the world,” Dr. Schwartz said, explaining that the collection was amassed over the last two decades by physicians sending in cancerous tumors to be tested with the known therapies of the time. “The results of these tests were in turn sent back to the referring physicians to be used as a guide or a reference as desired for treatment of the evaluated tumor. And the evaluated tumor was placed back in the physician’s therapy inventory. That’s how we amassed all these tumors.”

About Predictive Oncology Inc.

Predictive Oncology operates through three segments (domestic, international and other) that contain four subsidiaries; Helomics, TumorGenesis, Skyline Medical and Skyline Europe. Helomics applies artificial intelligence to its rich data gathered from patient tumors to both personalize cancer therapies for patients and drive the development of new targeted therapies in collaborations with pharmaceutical companies. Helomics’ CLIA-certified lab provides clinical testing that assists oncologists in individualizing patient treatment decisions, by providing an evidence-based road map for therapy. In addition to its proprietary precision oncology platform, Helomics offers boutique CRO services that leverage its TruTumor(TM), patient-derived tumor models coupled to a wide range of multi-omics assays (genomics, proteomics and biochemical), and an AI-powered proprietary bioinformatics platform to provide a tailored solution to its clients’ specific needs. Predictive Oncology’s TumorGenesis subsidiary is developing a new rapid approach to growing tumors in the laboratory, which essentially “fools” cancer cells into thinking they are still growing inside a patient. Its proprietary Oncology Discovery Technology Platform Kits will assist researchers and clinicians to identify which cancer cells bind to specific biomarkers. Once the biomarkers are identified, they can be used in TumorGenesis’ Oncology Capture Technology Platforms, which isolate and help categorize an individual patient’s heterogeneous tumor samples to enable the development of patient-specific treatment options. Helomics and TumorGenesis are focused on ovarian cancer. Predictive Oncology’s Skyline Medical division markets its patented and FDA-cleared STREAMWAY System, which automates the collection, measurement and disposal of waste fluid, including blood, irrigation fluid and others, within a medical facility, through both domestic and international divisions.

$SGLB Shareholder Letter Reports on ‘Perfect Opportunity’ for Company Growth

April 22, 2020
  • SGLB executive chairman updates shareholders on how company is adjusting to COVID-19 pandemic
  • Ruport reports on increased innovation, efficiency in its team dynamics
  • Sigma Labs “adapt[s] seamlessly” to new conditions, sees future opportunity “bigger than… imagined”

In a recent letter to shareholders, Sigma Labs Inc. (NASDAQ: SGLB) Executive Chairman Mark K. Ruport discussed the expected impact of COVID-19 on the company, outlined recent company accomplishments and talked about upcoming milestones. Ruport stated that what SGLB is doing for the 3D-metal-printing industry is “more important and relevant than ever before” and that the current situation will have minimal long-term implications to the company’s business plan (http://nnw.fm/CaD3e). Sigma Labs is a leading developer of quality-assurance software for the commercial 3D-metal-printing industry that uniquely allows manufacturing anomalies to be corrected in real time.

“One of the things that has amazed me over the past few months is the level of interaction between our Sigma team and our customers,” he observed. “We seem to be carrying out evaluations and installations as if there wasn’t a crisis. In many ways, we are becoming more efficient and more innovative in responding to customer issues.

“For example, in the past, we were likely to just react and put an engineer on a plane and spend a few days at a customer’s site to get an hour or two on the printer to address an issue,” Ruport continued. “Today, we are experimenting with users wearing cameras, supplemented with augmented reality, to be our engineer’s eyes and instructing our customer on how to be our hands as we address a critical situation together. The result is a more educated and competent user, and a much more efficient Sigma team.”

Ruport noted that Sigma Labs is doing everything possible to ensure the safety of each of the people who work for the company and that SGLB’s work and culture before the pandemic “has allowed us to adapt seamlessly to work remotely.” One important change, he noted, was the prioritization of weekly company-wide conference calls to ensure that company officials maintain regular, frequent contact with its employees.

In the letter, Ruport talked about significant SGLB achievements over the past year, which include the following:

  • Successful completion of several financings in order to continue to fund company development efforts and market initiatives.
  • Launch and successful execution of Sigma Lab’s Rapid Test and Evaluation (RTE) program with five different companies.
  • Granting of several patents to protect the company’s IP; this brings the total of SGLB patent portfolio to 11 issued and 24 pending patents.
  • Continued sales of SGLB’s PrintRite3D(TM) to universities and R&D organizations around the world
  • Announcement of PrintRite3D Production Series, which features a real-time production dashboard and several significant add-on features.
  • Third-party validation of SGLB technology from influential organizations.

Looking forward, Ruport also reported on upcoming milestones the company is expecting, including the following:

  • Continued acquisition of PrintRite3D by influential universities and R&D organizations worldwide.
  • Implementation of OEM contracts with 3D metal-printing hardware manufacturers to integrate SGLB technology.
  • Evolving relationships with additive manufacturing (AM) software companies to integrate SGLB products to streamline and optimize the AM digital thread from simulation through closed-loop control.
  • Multi-unit sales of PrintRite3D Production Series by end users.
  • Increasing quarter-over-quarter revenue driven by multiple, independent streams, primarily from OEMS, end users, resellers and others.

“On one hand, the world is deep in crisis, and we as a company need to take measures to ensure we are prepared to operate through this global shutdown,” Ruport told shareholders. “On the other hand, I had to balance these COVID-19 issues with my belief that when we get through this, our opportunity will be bigger than I had ever imagined… We are seeing the convergence of the next generation of manufacturing, the need for manufacturers to rethink their supply chain strategies, and the commercialization of our technology coming together and creating the perfect opportunity for Sigma.”

Sigma is a software company that specializes in the development and commercialization of real-time, computer-aided-inspection (CAI) solutions known as PrintRite3D for 3D-advanced manufacturing technologies. SGLB’s advanced, computer-aided software product revolutionizes commercial additive manufacturing, enabling nondestructive quality assurance mid-production, uniquely allowing errors to be corrected in real time.

$GGBXF 420 with CNW – Supreme Court Grants Mexico Legislature a Marijuana Legalization Deadline Extension

April 22, 2020

Aside from grinding most economies to a halt, the Coronavirus pandemic has severely impacted drug legalization campaigns all over the world. The scene in Mexico wasn’t much different. Legislators had been working on marijuana legalization when efforts to curb the spread of the virus made it impossible for them to complete the bill by the original April 2020 deadline.

However, the Mexican Supreme Court has granted a request to extend the deadline for marijuana legalization. This isn’t the first roadblock the legalization bill has run into. It all started when a precedent-setting ruling by the Supreme Court in 2018 deemed the country’s ban on marijuana unconstitutional.

Mexico’s Congress was granted 90 days to repeal its marijuana laws, but it became apparent that the lawmakers wouldn’t be able to make the October 2019 deadline. With lawmakers unable to find a consensus on aspects of the bill, Senate leaders requested an extension. The court approved the request, stating that the circumstances were exceptional and unique and that it took into account the ‘complexity of the matter.’

Unfortunately, the Coronavirus came along and disrupted life as we know it. With most legislative activities put on hold, the chances of the Bill being completed in time became slim. With the new deadline extension, lawmakers will have until December 15, the end of the next legislative session to tackle the marijuana legalization bill.

Despite not being completed, the bill has gone through a lot of work. In early March, Mexican senators circulated a draft bill that contained a series of proposed regulations for a legal marijuana model. Adults 18 years and older would be allowed to possess and cultivate marijuana for personal use.

An individual would be permitted to grow up to 20 registered plants as long as the total yield isn’t more than 480 grams per year. Medical marijuana patients, however, would be allowed to grow more than 20 plants. The bill would also cap personal possession at 28 grams and decriminalize possession of up to 200 grams.

It would establish the Mexican Institute of Regulation and Control of Cannabis, a decentralized body that would be responsible for regulating the market and issuing licenses to marijuana businesses. Cannabis sales would be taxed at 12% and some of the tax revenue would go toward a substance misuse treatment fund.

Additionally, public consumption would be permitted as long as the space isn’t designated as 100% smoke-free.

Experts think the news of the deadline extension didn’t come as a surprise to the cannabis industry, including companies like Green Growth Brands Inc. (CSE: GGB) (OTCQB: GGBXF), which saw the disruptions of the current pandemic as far-reaching.

$UUUU Energy Fuels Referenced in Publication Discussing the Future of America’s Rare Earth Element, Uranium Supply

Energy Fuels. Inc. (NYSE: UUUU) (TSX: EFR)  today announces its placement in an editorial published by NetworkNewsWire (“NNW”), one of 40+ brands in the InvestorBrandNetwork (“IBN”), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company for private and public entities.

To view the full publication, “America’s National Security Blind Spot: Uranium and Rare Earth Element Production,” visit: http://nnw.fm/E6tfK

Though the United States is by far the largest consumer of uranium in the world, the country imports nearly 100% its uranium, much from state-owned foreign sources, strangling domestic suppliers and creating a hazardous situation for the U.S. supply chain and electrical grid. Many Americans may well know of the country’s near-100% dependence on China for critical rare earth elements. However, most may not realize that America is also nearly 100% dependent on uranium imports—increasingly imported from entities owned by the governments of Russia, China and their allies. Like rare earth elements, uranium is designated by the U.S. government as critical to the nation’s security and economic prosperity, and the Department of Interior warned, “This dependency of the United States on foreign sources [of uranium] creates a strategic vulnerability for both its economy and military to adverse foreign government action, natural disaster, and other events that can disrupt supply of these key minerals.”

Energy Fuels Inc. (NYSE: UUUU) (TSX: EFR), the United States’ leading domestic producer of uranium, has led the charge in efforts to warn the U.S. government about the security threats to uranium supply chain disruption, and also recently announced that it is working to help bring rare earth processing back to the U.S. by leveraging its White Mesa Mill.  If the U.S. fails to act, 20% of the nation’s electricity — and 55% of its clean, carbon-free electricity — may become hostage to malign foreign sources of uranium, and recent events show that any supply chain disruption, malicious or well-intentioned, can have a devastating impact.

About Energy Fuels Inc.

Energy Fuels is a leading US-based uranium mining company, supplying U3O8 to major nuclear utilities. The company also produces vanadium from certain of its projects, as market conditions warrant. Its corporate offices are near Denver, Colorado, and all of its assets and employees are in the United States. Energy Fuels holds three of America’s key uranium production centers, the White Mesa Mill in Utah, the Nichols Ranch in-situ recovery (“ISR”) Project in Wyoming, and the Alta Mesa ISR Project in Texas. The White Mesa Mill is the only conventional uranium mill operating in the U.S. today, has a licensed capacity of over 8 million pounds of U3O8 per year, and has the ability to produce vanadium when market conditions warrant. The Nichols Ranch ISR Project is in operation and has a licensed capacity of 2 million pounds of U3O8 per year. The Alta Mesa ISR Project is currently on standby. In addition to the above production facilities, Energy Fuels also has one of the largest NI 43-101 compliant uranium resource portfolios in the U.S., and several uranium and uranium/vanadium mining projects on standby and in various stages of permitting and development. The primary trading market for Energy Fuels’ common shares is the NYSE American under the trading symbol “UUUU”, and the Company’s common shares are also listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the trading symbol “EFR.” Energy Fuels’ website is www.energyfuels.com.

$YGYI Subsidiaries Enter Joint Venture for Large Scale Processing Facility, 2,200 Acres to Grow Hemp in Nicaragua

Youngevity International (NASDAQ: YGYI), a multi-channel lifestyle company operating in three distinct business segments including a commercial coffee enterprise, commercial hemp enterprise and multi-channel lifestyle company, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiaries, CLR Roasters LLC and Khrysos Industries, Inc. (the “US Partners”) have entered into an agreement with H&H Coffee Group Export Corp and The Nica Hemp Cooperative, Inc (the “Nicaragua Partners”) to acquire the 2,200 acre Chaguitillo Farms in Sebaco-Matagalpa, Nicaragua. The joint venture will utilize the property to erect a large-scale processing facility and to grow hemp on the land. Planned improvements to the property are anticipated to total approximately $30,000,000 dollars, with H&H contributing the 2,200-acre farm with an estimated value of about $10 million. All the capital toward the construction of the project, estimated at $20 million dollars, will be provided by The Nica Hemp Cooperative. Along with its expertise in the hemp business, the US Partners will initially contribute $3,000,000 of extraction equipment to the project. Additionally, the US Partners aim to issue 1.5 million shares of YGYI common stock to the Nica Hemp Cooperative in exchange for a 50% stake in the land and the improvements (having a $30,000,000 estimated value at completion). The US Partners will also issue 5 million warrants with a strike price $1.50 per share to the Nica Hemp Cooperative in exchange for a 75% controlling stake in the hemp grow and oil extraction business, subject to Nasdaq approval. The warrants will be issued when the project is completed and initiates its operations. “This is a very impressive partnership and collaboration between our Hemp Enterprise, our Coffee Enterprise and our very strong and growing strategic business relationship in Nicaragua. We feel that the value of YGYI’s 50% interest in the land and infrastructure at completion of the project along with the assumption that the warrants will be exercised represents a significant premium to our current trading price,” Youngevity president and CFO Dave Briskie stated in the news release.

$SRAX Rising to New Challenges of 2020, Meeting Consumers, Brands Where They Are

April 21, 2020
  • California Consumer Privacy Act presents opportunity – not inhibition – to data management companies
  • SRAX prioritizes consumer experience as well as the consumer’s ownership of data
  • Launch of new program allows public companies to conserve cash, purchase ads with stock payments

Digital marketing and consumer data management technology innovator SRAX Inc. (NASDAQ: SRAX) is adapting to and overcoming the new challenges of 2020. From new laws regarding data collection and elimination of social gatherings due to stay-at-home orders, SRAX is helping consumers and the brands they trust stay connected.

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) has presented both challenges and opportunities to businesses regarding data privacy regulations. Following the precedent set by the 2018 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), California set out requirements of its own that are anticipated to influence similar legislation across the rest of the United States.

In a recent article, Tech News World identified these legal implements not as inhibitors to business but rather as opportunities for the industry to enhance customer experience (http://nnw.fm/EOlt7). Consumers who opt into the sharing of data are more likely to fully engage with brands. What some see as inflexible standards of the CCPA can actually be mechanisms to help companies build trust and transparency with an interested audience.

While many in the data management realm are playing catch-up to these new legal requirements, SRAX has prioritized customer control from its inception. The Company provides all stakeholders – marketers, content owners and consumers – tools to unlock the value of data. All of the data collected by SRAX is opted into by the consumer, making it more valuable with long-term recurring revenue to the companies who access the collected information. Not only are consumers receiving a better overall experience from the companies they choose to interact with, but the companies are accessing high-quality data with higher conversion rates – a win-win situation orchestrated by SRAX’s strategic design.

2020 has brought more changes then data privacy. In fact, more people are online right now than ever before. Social distancing has forced the world out of the office and into cyberspace, and companies are having to pivot quickly to meet the new needs of their consumers. Understanding this new challenge and the opportunity accompanying it, SRAX launched a Stock for Ads program (http://nnw.fm/IcH6l). This new program allows public companies to conserve cash by purchasing media across all marketing channels with stock payments.

“We understand what it means to be a publicly traded company and we want to help businesses continue, not halt their marketing efforts,” SRAX founder and CEO Christopher Miglino stated in a news release. “With our custom media plans, businesses can attract and engage customers with digital ads, covering expenses up to a year in exchange for stock of their company.”

Now more than ever, people are seeking community. The new virtual happy hour (http://nnw.fm/4Dn2c) is evidence to how, when faced with any odds, humans still seek connection. Consumers are turning to the tools they have on hand, and those tools are digital. SRAX has worked hard to create a platform that empowers the consumer to take charge of their digital content. When companies sign up, they are communicating to potential consumers that they value and respect their privacy. They are seeking a relationship built on trust and loyalty and aren’t looking for shallow connections. SRAX provides a platform that enables both consumers and brands to reach their full potential.

$POAI Releases FY Financials, Notes Key Partnerships, CancerQuest 2020 Milestones Achieved

April 21, 2020
  • Q4 highlights include $15 million equity line, CancerQuest 2020 initiative
  • POAI revenues for FY 2019 total $1.4 million, primarily driven through sale of proprietary STREAMWAY units
  • Predictive Oncology will continue to be pioneer in fields of biomarker discovery, precision therapies

Predictive Oncology Inc. (NASDAQ: POAI), a knowledge-driven company focused on applying its cutting-edge technology to cancer research, released its financial report for fiscal year 2019, ending December 31, 2019. The report also identified fourth-quarter highlights for the company (http://nnw.fm/5uhu6).

Noting that 2019 “was not without its challenges for the entire healthcare technology industry,” POAI CFO Bob Myers observed that Predictive Oncology “continued to execute on our business model, making a synergistic acquisition and shoring up our balance sheet via a new $15 million equity line from Oasis Capital. Our STREAMWAY(TM) line has maintained strong disposable product sales and we continue to sell the STREAMWAY System.”

In its announcement, POIA outlined several key milestones reached by the company during the fourth quarter, including securing a $15 million equity line with Oasis Capital and launching its CancerQuest 2020 initiative with ovarian cancer as the initial target. Other highlights include subsidiary Helomics sequencing tumor cases in partnership with UPMC Magee Women’s Hospital and subsidiary Skyline Medical completing its largest STREAMWAY System order to a single hospital in company history.

Regarding the company’s financial numbers, the report noted revenues for FY 2019 were $1.4 million, steady year over year when compared to FY 2018, which was also $1.4 million. Revenues were primarily driven through the sale of Predictive Oncology’s proprietary STREAMWAY units, with 43 units sold in 2019. The company reported that gross margins remained strong, declining slightly to 62% in 2019 from 71% in 2018; much of that decline was tied to the increase in costs following the consolidation of the Helomics acquisition in April 2019.

The growing company’s report detailed losses consistent with a company investing in its long-term future. Net losses for 2019 totaled $19.7 million versus $10.1 million in 2018. General and administrative expenses rose an estimated 111% to nearly $9.8 million in 2019 as a result of extraneous expenses and initial costs related to the Helomics merger. Operational expenses also rose to $3 million, compared to $1.8 million in 2018. Net loss in 2019 reflected impairment charges of $8.1 million on goodwill related to the Helomics merger and $800,000 on intangibles.

In addition, Predictive Oncology saw a gain of $6.1 million as a result of the revaluation of the equity method investment recorded following the initial 25% purchase of Helomics and after the merger and consolidation of Helomics. Predictive Oncology also incurred additional expenses of $4 million in 2019, primarily due to an increase in interest expense, payment penalties, amortization of original issue discounts and a loss on debt extinguishment related to notes payable.

“We continue to be very excited about the revenue and monetization prospects for our precision medicine business, which will allow us to be at the forefront of developing the artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven predictive models of cancer, as well as our revolutionary STREAMWAY clinical waste disposal products,” said POAI director and CEO Dr. Carl Schwartz. “We will continue to execute upon our comprehensive strategy to deliver long-term profitable growth and innovation while concentrating our efforts and resources on our recently acquired Helomics business.

“Building on the successes in 2019, we have recently announced the launch of our CancerQuest 2020 initiative, and we expect Helomics’ first AI-driven predictive model of ovarian cancer to be ready for initial commercialization in revenue generating projects with Pharma in Q2-2020,” he continued. “Furthermore, we have signed a letter of intent to acquire Quantitative Medicine, a biomedical analytics and computational biology company with a unique machine learning (ML) framework that will be integrated in with our Helomics business. Against this backdrop, we believe that Predictive Oncology will be a leader in the application of AI and ML to both the use of and search for new precision therapies.”

POAI is bringing precision medicine, or tailored medical treatment using the individual characteristics of each patient, to the treatment of cancer. Through the company’s Helomics division, the company leverages its unique, clinically validated patient derived (PDx) smart tumor profiling platform to provide oncologists with a road map to help individualize therapy. In addition, the company is leveraging artificial intelligence and its proprietary database of over 150,000 cancer cases tumors to build AI-driven models of tumor drug repose to improve outcomes for the patients of today and tomorrow.

$UUUU America’s National Security Blind Spot: Uranium and Rare Earth Element Production

April 21, 2020

NetworkNewsWire Editorial Coverage: Reliance on foreign and malign sources for critical materials is a national security risk.

Though the United States is by far the largest consumer of uranium in the world, the country imports nearly 100% its uranium, much from state-owned foreign sources, strangling domestic suppliers and creating a hazardous situation for the U.S. supply chain and electrical grid. Many Americans may well know of the country’s near-100% dependence on China for critical rare earth elements. However, most may not realize that America is also nearly 100% dependent on uranium imports—increasingly imported from entities owned by the governments of Russia, China and their allies. Like rare earth elements, uranium is designated by the U.S. government as critical to the nation’s security and economic prosperity, and the Department of Interior warned, “This dependency of the United States on foreign sources [of uranium] creates a strategic vulnerability for both its economy and military to adverse foreign government action, natural disaster, and other events that can disrupt supply of these key minerals.” Energy Fuels Inc. (NYSE American: UUUU) (TSX: EFR) (UUUU Profile), the United States’ leading domestic producer of uranium, has led the charge in efforts to warn the U.S. government about the security threats to uranium supply chain disruption, and also recently announced that it is working to help bring rare earth processing back to the U.S. by leveraging its White Mesa Mill. If the U.S. fails to act, 20% of the nation’s electricity — and 55% of its clean, carbon-free electricity — may become hostage to malign foreign sources of uranium, and recent events show that any supply chain disruption, malicious or well-intentioned, can have a devastating impact. Major companies across all segments have recognized the importance of streamlining supply chains, including Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA), a company that relies on rare earth elements (REEs) to power its vehicles. Reliable, low-cost sources for uranium production exist in the United States, as well as from free-market allies. Canada-based Cameco (NYSE: CCJ) (TSX: CCO) is one of the largest global providers of the uranium fuel needed to produce clean energy, and Australian BHP Group (NYSE: BHP) provides needed minerals across the globe. Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, leading international mining company Freeport-McMoRan (NYSE: FCX) conducts a significant mining operation in North America, specializing in copper, gold, and molybdenum. The United States and its allies have the resources and know-how to produce uranium and rare earths, and it’s time to end risky market dominance by Russian and Chinese state-owned and subsidized enterprises.

Policy Makers Urged to Consider Domestics

The current global health crisis has revealed the nation’s Achilles heel of dependency on foreign sources for critical materials. America’s reliance on crucial medicines and supplies from adversarial nations such as China has sounded the alarm for U.S. policy makers to think and plan smarter. The current crisis has also shown that the U.S. has a dangerous reliance on certain foreign sources of critical minerals and energy. Most people know about the country’s extreme reliance on China for REEs, which are found in products as varied as cell phones, electric vehicles, wind turbines and military systems that defend America. Not as many people know that the country is now nearly 100% reliant on imports of uranium for its nuclear power plants. If nothing changes, over 50% of this uranium and nuclear fuel may come from state-owned entities in Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and China in just a few years.

U.S. nuclear power plants currently generate 55% of the nation’s carbon‐free electricity and produce nearly 20% of the nation’s overall electricity needs. In fact, nuclear power is the only currently available and affordable low-carbon power source that meets significant baseload electricity demands, simultaneously reducing air pollution and providing a viable solution to climate change. As global electricity demand continues to soar, nuclear power has been shown in multiple scientific studies to be the cleanest and most economical way to produce reliable electricity. According to the World Nuclear Association (WNA), there are 441 operable reactors globally, with another 54 units under construction and 439 in various stages of planning; in addition, the WNA has identified a potentially massive gap in uranium supply and demand through 2040 of 1 billion pounds. Further increases in global electricity demand could easily spur significant new nuclear power development, including the commercialization of small modular reactors in the next few years. These potential demand drivers indicate that the United States’ uranium appetite is only increasing, yet the country is becoming increasingly dependent on adversarial sources for this critical mineral.

Hope on the Horizon for Domestics

Few other companies have been more proactive or outspoken about supply chain risks than Energy Fuels Inc. (NYSE American: UUUU) (TSX: EFR). Based in Lakewood, Colorado, Energy Fuels is the country’s largest producer of uranium and the leading conventional producer of vanadium—both designated as critical minerals by the U.S. government. Energy Fuels’ uranium production portfolio looms large in the U.S., boasting more uranium production facilities, more production capacity and more in-ground resources than any other domestic uranium producer. In fact, the company’s assets have produced over one-third of all U.S. uranium over the past 15 years, making Energy Fuels uniquely positioned to quickly increase production to meet increased demand.

Energy Fuels has seen success in its efforts to convince the U.S. government of the strategic importance of the domestic uranium mining industry. President Trump’s recently announced FY-2021 executive budget request allocates $150 million per year for the next 10 years to create a strategic U.S. uranium reserve. This funding is expected to provide considerable support to established U.S. uranium producers such as Energy Fuels, and significantly enhances the security and independence of the nation’s electric supply. This $1.5 billion strategic initiative comes on the heels of a July 2019 Presidential Memorandum that ordered the creation of the U.S. Nuclear Fuel Working Group to “examine the current state of domestic nuclear fuel production to reinvigorate the entire nuclear fuel supply chain, consistent with United States national security and nonproliferation goals.” The working group has not released its findings, but it is believed that government actions are now underway to protect vital U.S. uranium infrastructure, spur domestic production and preserve the country’s energy independence.

Expertise and Assets Built for Scale

As the country’s leading diversified uranium miner, Energy Fuels is uniquely positioned to capitalize on these initiatives. Energy Fuels utilizes both conventional and in-situ recovery (ISR) technology to produce uranium from three strategic facilities:

  • The highly strategic White Mesa Mill in Utah is the only conventional uranium mill in the U.S. and is centered around the largest and highest-grade conventional uranium mines and projects in the country. The White Mesa Mill has a licensed capacity to produce over 8 million pounds of U3O8 per year and provides immediate scalability as uranium demand increases. The White Mesa Mill also has other diverse business opportunities, including being the only facility in North America capable of recycling uranium-bearing alternate feed materials and vanadium production (Energy Fuels was the leading U.S. producer of vanadium in 2019) which is essential in production of high-grade steel and holds promise in high-capacity batteries. Evaluations are also currently underway to utilize the mill in processing of critical rare earth elements (REEs).
  • Nichols Ranch Plant (ISR) is in the productive Powder River Basin district of Wyoming and has a total licensed capacity of 2 million pounds of U3O8 per year. Nichols Ranch has produced 1.2 million pounds of U3O8 since commissioning in 2014, and it has significant future expansion potential from 34 fully licensed wellfields containing significant in-ground uranium resources.
  • Located on over 200,000 acres of private land in Texas, the fully licensed and constructed Alta Mesa Plant (ISR) has a total operating capacity of 1.5 million pounds of uranium per year and produced nearly 5 million pounds of U3O8 between 2005 and 2013. This low-cost production facility is currently on standby, maintained in a state of readiness to respond to expected increases in demand.

Energy Fuels’ portfolio of production facilities and resources poises the company to significantly benefit from strategic government initiatives, increasing global demand and increasing global prices. The company possesses both expertise and assets that can be immediately scaled to capitalize on the impending opportunity. As of Dec. 31, 2019, the company had a war chest of $17.7 million in cash and marketable securities, as well as an additional $22.8 million of immediately marketable inventory, including 515,000 pounds of uranium and 1.6 million pounds of vanadium. Increasing commodity prices in 2020 so far have significantly increased the value of this inventory. In 2020, Energy Fuels added an additional $19.1 million of cash to its treasury.

Not only does Energy Fuels stand to benefit from the government’s shift toward domestic uranium production, but the company also recently announced its intent to evaluate the production of REEs at its White Mesa Mill. Subject to the program’s success, the mill will be utilized to receive and process multiple varieties of REE ores—a task which, historically, could only be completed with the help of Chinese state-owned companies. The U.S. government has designated REEs as vital in the nation’s national defense strategy and—similar to its focus on domestic uranium production—intends to designate funds to empower private American companies to develop REE production. Energy Fuels’ latest initiative places it in an advantageous position to assist the country in lessening its dependence on Chinese companies for the processing of REEs. The company believes REE production, alongside its leadership in uranium production, will fortify its already strong industry position.

Emerging Opportunities for Uranium Producers

Nearly all the uranium that fuels the United States’ nuclear power plants is imported, placing 20% of the nation’s power output in jeopardy. Historically, these imports mainly came from free-market allies such as Canada and Australia. However, in the coming years, uranium imports are expected to mainly come from Russian and Chinese sources whose state-owned companies flood the global market, drive free-market companies out of business and threaten national security—but there is hope on the horizon. With new government initiatives in motion, America’s strategic uranium supply chain will be secure and free from foreign influence. These initiatives have the potential to spur a resurgence in uranium markets and an abundance of new opportunity for companies such as Energy Fuels. However, the global uranium equity market is concentrated and relatively small. There are a few uranium explorers and developers, but they require many years of licensing and hundreds of millions of dollars to get permits, build infrastructure, and achieve production status. While there are only limited opportunities to directly participate in proven producers, Energy Fuels is one of those proven uranium producers, with assets and capabilities that are truly unmatched in the country today.

Looking Ahead to Secure Supply

Major companies across all segments have recognized the importance of streamlining supply chains, and some stand to benefit from the country’s prioritization of domestic production, including:

Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA), which recently participated in a blockchain pilot to see whether the technology could accelerate its cargo pick-up procedures, has been passionate about intensifying its competitive edge by vertically articulating its supply chain. CEO Elon Musk’s strategy has been used as a blueprint by others in the business community for achieving an efficient, streamlined supply chain. Similar attention to America’s supply of rare earth elements—including efforts to shore up its supply—must be addressed to ensure the continuity of the United States’ clean power supply.

Canada-based Cameco (NYSE: CCJ) (TSX: CCO) is one of the largest global providers of the uranium fuel needed to energize a clean-air world. The company’s competitive position is based on a controlling ownership of the world’s largest high-grade reserves and low-cost operations. Utilities around the world rely on nuclear fuel products to generate power in safe, reliable, carbon-free nuclear reactors.

With global headquarters in Melbourne, Australia, BHP Group (NYSE: BHP) is a world-leading resources company. The company extracts and processes minerals, oil and gas, and has more than 72,000 employees and contractors, primarily in Australia and the Americas. Company products are sold worldwide, with sales and marketing led through Singapore and Houston, Texas.

Freeport-McMoRan (NYSE: FCX) is one of the world’s largest publicly traded copper producers. Operating seven open-pit copper mines in North America, the company reports significant undeveloped North American reserves and resources. With a portfolio of potential long-term development initiatives, FCX shows potential to benefit from the United States’ refocused efforts on domestic producers.

As the United States government recognizes the importance of avoiding overreliance on foreign and malign sources for critical materials, major domestic companies stand to benefit.

$BHAT Announces Receipt of Delinquency Notification Letter from Nasdaq

XIAMEN, China, April 20, 2020 — Blue Hat Interactive Entertainment Technology (“Blue Hat” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BHAT), a producer, developer and operator of augmented reality interactive entertainment games, toys and educational materials in China, today announced that it received a delinquency notification letter (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) on April 15, 2020 indicating that the Company is not currently in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement set forth in Nasdaq’s Listing Rules (“Listing Rules”) for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market, as the closing bid price for the Company’s ordinary shares listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market was below $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days. Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) requires listed securities to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share, and Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A) provides that a failure to meet the minimum bid price requirement exists if the deficiency continues for a period of 30 consecutive business days. The Notice provided that the Company had a period of 180 calendar days from the date of the Notice, or until October 12, 2020, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement.

On April 17, 2020, the Company received an additional notification letter (together with the Notice, the “Notices”) from Nasdaq stating that Nasdaq has determined to toll the compliance periods for bid price and market value of publicly held shares requirements (collectively, the “Price-based Requirements”) through June 30, 2020. In that regard, on April 16, 2020, Nasdaq filed an immediately effective rule change with the Securities and Exchange Commission. As a result, companies presently in compliance periods for any Price-based Requirements will remain at that same stage of the process and will not be subject to being delisted for these concerns. Starting on July 1, 2020, companies will receive the balance of any pending compliance period in effect at the start of the tolling period to regain compliance.

Accordingly, since the Company had 179 calendar days remaining in its bid price compliance period as of April 16, 2020, it will, upon reinstatement of the Price-based Requirements, still have 179 calendar days from July 1, 2020, or until December 28, 2020, to regain compliance.

The Notices have no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s securities. Pursuant to the Notices, the Company now has until December 28, 2020 to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement, during which time the Company’s ordinary shares will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market. If at any time before December 28, 2020, the bid price of the Company’s ordinary shares closes at or above $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, Nasdaq will provide written confirmation of compliance to the Company. In the event that the Company does not regain compliance by December 28, 2020, the Company may be eligible for additional time to regain compliance or may face delisting.

The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its ordinary shares and will continue to consider its available options to address the deficiency during the compliance period.

$SRAX Seizes Lucrative Opportunities from Global Social Distancing of Consumers and Investors

April 20, 2020
  • SRAX launches Video Virtual Roadshow solution, helping public companies engage with investors in pandemic, post-pandemic world
  • Company also released BIGtoken Lightning Insights, helping brands get consumer insights in hours
  • SRAX offers investors growth potential backed by diversified business model, proven ability to swiftly seize market opportunities as they arise

SRAX Inc. (NASDAQ: SRAX), a digital marketing and consumer data management technology company, is revolutionizing consumer and financial markets data collection through secure and transparent digital platforms – even in these challenging economic times. As a part of one of its flagship products, SRAX IR, the company has recently announced the launch of SRAX IR Virtual Roadshow – a new tool that allows publicly traded companies to search for prospective investors and host video meetings (http://nnw.fm/mbAZ1). The company also announced that it recently enhanced another leading product, BIGtoken, with a tool that connects brands with consumer insights in as little as a few hours (http://nnw.fm/ocSQ4).

SRAX IR, the platform that helps public companies communicate with their current shareholders and potential investors by leveraging data that tracks their behavior in the stock market, has been enhanced by SRAX IR Virtual Roadshow tool. This new offering helps companies build their prospective investor list and host one-on-one or one-to-many video and audio meetings. By presenting their story as well as quarterly and annual updates, companies are able to engage with existing and new shareholders in a dynamic way. The unique feature of this tool is that after an event has ended, companies can monitor in real-time the market behavior of investors who attended the meeting and track their investments in the company.

“The ecosystem for investor events will be changed forever after the current environment. Both investors and issuers will no longer need to meet in person. New technologies are providing the tools that issuers need to meet with current and prospective investors,” SRAX Founder and CEO Christopher Miglino stated in a news release. “The organizers of these events are the cornerstone of the industry and our system will allow for them to create their own events on the platform and profit from letting issuers invite investors from proprietary lists to the issuers’ roadshows. Video is the future of investor communication and we are thrilled to add this feature to the platform.”

BIGtoken, a platform that specializes in consumer data collection, enabling consumers to own and monetize their data, now offers quick yet robust audience insights in just hours. The newly introduced solution, called BIGtoken Lightning Insights, is now enabling brands to quickly activate research and surveys about their brand, products, or industry. The tool leverages over 16 million survey respondents across more than 30 countries, allowing brands to target and access very niche groups through 10,000 unique points of segmentation, augmenting their inquiries with additional data points such as location and buying history. Unlike other similar products offered by competing digital data companies, BIGtoken Lightning Insights provides actionable audience insights in hours, not days, giving brands that use it a competitive edge over their rivals. The new tool enables prompt support for informed decision making, thus helping brands overcome uncertainty during this critical time by gathering immediate data from their target consumers.

To showcase the impressive capabilities of the new tool, the company recently surveyed the BIGtoken community to explore how the recent pandemic restrictions have affected their social and work life. In just 24 hours, the company received results from over 1,300 panelists, indicating that consumers are most worried about the financial burden resulting from the social distancing environment, followed by cabin fever and worries arising from the absence of necessities such as food.

The full results of this study can be found at http://nnw.fm/dPg1s.

As a pioneer in digital data space, SRAX has a proven track record of leveraging newly emerging market trends and capitalizing on its early entrance into nascent industries. Amid the global pandemic, the company is poised to yet again seize the market opportunity by adjusting its offer to meet the changing behavior of both consumers and public companies and their investors. With its diversified business model, which generates multiple income streams across the world’s largest markets, SRAX is an attractive investment opportunity for investors who seek growth potential supported by robust fundamentals.

$SGLB Catalyst for Fourth Industrial Revolution, Enables Remote 3D Printing with Printrite3D(R) Production Series

April 20, 2020
  • SGLB launches new patented Printrite3D(R) Production Series, giving 3D printing operators metrics to increase quality control while operating remotely from any location
  • 3D metal printing expected to increase as economic shutdown affects complex manufacturing supply chains
  • Robust patent strategy established to protect intellectual property with eleven patents granted, 24 patents pending
  • New Printrite3D(R) Production Series an essential first mover contribution: a universal thermal quality data standard for measuring, comparing part quality from part to part; AM machine to machine; brand to brand

As supply chains look to restructure from the economic impact of COVID-19, Sigma Labs Inc. (NASDAQ: SGLB) remains at the frontline in quality control software for the 3D printing industry by launching its new patented Printrite3D(R) Production Series. Featuring a new ‘Production Dashboard’, the series arrives at a critical time for the industry as it evolves into a viable alternative to traditional manufacturing models.

Effects of the economic shutdown are profoundly affecting U.S. manufacturing, especially for producers that rely heavily on complex and lengthy supply chains. Since on-demand 3D printing is more timely and rapid in development and delivery, many experts expect sharp increases in 3D printing in conjunction with an overall restructuring of supply chain dynamics (http://nnw.fm/yUi8A).

In addition to addressing perplexing quality control issues, Sigma Labs’ PrintRite3D(R) Production Series also enhances the speed and agility of 3D metal printing by truncating the design and development process, accelerating machine qualification, and enabling remote production in real-time from any location in the world. The software’s technology runs on most major brands of 3D metal printers, allowing for standardized quality assurance processes that can be used across equipment from different manufacturers throughout the entire supply chain.

Built on a rich history of innovation, SGLB’s robust patent strategy includes seven patents granted, 18 patents pending, and four patent applications in pre-publication. “PrintRite3D(R) Production Series is the culmination of years of internal research and development and radical collaboration with our customers,” Sigma Labs Executive Chairman Mark K. Ruport stated in a news release (http://nnw.fm/wm8SK). “We believe it will be seen as a major advancement for the additive manufacturing industry just as 3D printing of metal parts will be tested and challenged to fulfill the promise of being the next revolution in manufacturing.”

As the industry moves from prototype manufacturing of critical components to economically viable commercial production, SGLB’s leading quality control solutions enable 3D metal printing to dramatically increase production speed and quality yields while dramatically decreasing the excessive cost of quality control. The PrintRite3D(R) Production Series features an intuitive dashboard that provides in-process quality metrics and actionable information that will enable operators to make changes in real-time production as required from any location around the globe, allowing manufacturers to deploy the technology throughout their entire supply chain.

“PrintRite3D® Production Series addresses one of the critical barriers of the industrialization of additive manufacturing and puts highly sophisticated tools in the hands of the printer operators,” Dr. Prveen Bidare stated in a news release. Bidare, who is the technical research officer in Hybrid Manufacturing at the University of Birmingham, added, “Bringing Sigma’s technology down to the manufacturing floor to be used by production managers to monitor the 3D printing process is a major step forward for the AM industry.”

Founded in 2010, Sigma Labs, Inc. is a leading provider of quality assurance software to the commercial 3D printing industry under the PrintRite3D(R) brand. With a global client base that includes 23 installations across 19 different users, the company’s growing client list includes tier-1 OEM enterprises and end-users such as Siemens, Honeywell, Pratt & Whitney. Through a stated objective to become the de facto provider of quality assurance software, SGLB aims to provide solutions that will catalyze the full-scale industrialization of the commercial additive manufacturing industry, referred to by many as the fourth industrial revolution.

$UUUU $EFR Expected to Benefit from Global Uranium Shutdowns

April 16, 2020
  • UUUU U.S. uranium production poised to benefit from major global mine shutdowns
  • Company operates three U.S. uranium facilities in Utah, Wyoming and Texas
  • Energy Fuels is also leading industry efforts to encourage U.S. government to support domestically produced uranium, not cede control of U.S. nuclear sector to Russia

With many global uranium mines currently shut down because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Energy Fuels Inc. (NYSE American: UUUU) (TSX: EFR), the United States’ largest domestic producer of uranium, continues to operate its White Mesa Mill in Utah and is ideally poised to benefit from its reliable, stable production of uranium, which is designated by the U.S. government as vital to the nation’s security and economic prosperity. Energy Fuels also continues to maintain its two in situ recovery (ISR) facilities on standby in Wyoming and Texas.

Energy Fuels is the only U.S. company that utilizes both conventional and ISR technology to produce uranium from three different locations: the White Mesa Mill in Utah, the Nichols Ranch ISR Facility in Wyoming and the Alta Mesa ISR Facility in Texas.

The only conventional uranium and vanadium mill in the United States, UUUU’s White Mesa Mill is centered around the largest and highest-grade uranium mines and projects in the country. With licensed capacity to produce more than 8 million pounds of U3O8 per year, the facility can provide immediate scalability as uranium demand increases.

Found in the Powder River Basin, Energy Fuels’ Nichols Ranch ISR Facility has a total licensed capacity to produce 2 million pounds of U3O8 per year. The facility has significant underutilized capacity, having produced a total of 1.2 million pounds of U3O8 since commissioning in 2014. The facility is currently on standby, but the plant has significant future expansion potential as demand for uranium increases.

Located on more than 200,000 acres of private land in Texas, the Alta Mesa ISR Facility boasts a total operating capacity of 1.5 million pounds of uranium per year, and produced almost 5 million pounds of U3O8 between 2005 and 2013 before being put on standby. Although not currently operating, the plant is maintained so it can resume operation immediately to meet future expected increases in demand.

In addition to its commitment to being ready to meet the nation’s uranium needs, Energy Fuels is also leading industry efforts to encourage the U.S. government to act upon the importance of domestically produced uranium. While the United States is the largest consumer of uranium in the world, the country imports nearly 100% of this essential clean-energy metal.

The COVID-19 crisis has exposed the vulnerability of several critical U.S. supply chains including uranium imports, which are increasingly coming from Russia and China and their allies. In its efforts to change that, Energy Fuels spearheaded the 2018-2019 Uranium Section 232, which resulted in President Donald Trump creating the Nuclear Fuel Working Group (NFWG) to provide recommendations on reviving and expanding the production of nuclear fuel in the United States, including uranium. President Trump also recently announced he is seeking $1.5 billion over the next 10 years to create a U.S. strategic uranium reserve, and additional recommendations from the NFWG are expected soon.

Based in Lakewood, Colorado, Energy Fuels is the country’s largest producer of uranium and the leading conventional producer of vanadium, both of which are designated as critical minerals by the U.S. government. Energy Fuels is also evaluating opportunities to process rare earth elements, which the U.S. government has also deemed critical to U.S. national security. Energy Fuels’ uranium production portfolio stands apart, boasting more uranium production facilities, more production capacity and more in-ground resources than any other uranium producer in the United States. In fact, the company’s assets have produced over one-third of all U.S. uranium over the past 15 years, making Energy Fuels uniquely positioned to quickly increase production to meet new demand.

$PBIO and RedShiftBio Combine Proprietary Technology to Create Powerful Biotherapeutic Drug Development Platform

Pressure BioScience (OTCQB: PBIO), a leader in the development and sale of broadly enabling, pressure-based instruments, consumables and platform-technology solutions to the worldwide life sciences and other industries, today announced that the combination of PBIO’s patented Pressure Cycling Technology (“PCT”) with RedShiftBio’s proprietary Microfluidic Modulation Spectroscopy (“MMS”) has resulted in a powerful new platform for biotherapeutic drug development (“PCT-enhanced MMS”). PBIO believes combining both platforms enables for the rigorous investigation of protein structure and stability in a highly efficient workflow that can be crucial in drug development. Per the release, the collaboration should result in faster development of new drugs as well as improvement in the quality of drugs coming onto the market. “Our collaboration with RedShiftBio takes advantage of our ability to manipulate protein structure with high pressure and RedShiftBio’s precise analytical platform that reports subtle changes in the three-dimensional structure of protein molecules that could lead to protein aggregation. Unfortunately, aggregated protein biologics could train a patient’s immune system to recognize and eliminate the drug, so finding appropriate formulations to prevent aggregation is a major task in biopharmaceutical drug development. Moreover, MMS will help us to understand protein folding kinetics in our BaroFold platform, which uses high pressure to shape recombinant proteins into their active and stable conformations in biomanufacturing process development,” Alexander V.

About Pressure BioSciences Inc.

Pressure BioSciences is a leader in the development and sale of innovative, broadly enabling, pressure-based solutions for the worldwide life-sciences industry. The company’s products are based on the unique properties of both constant (i.e., static) and alternating (i.e., pressure-cycling technology, or “PCT”) hydrostatic pressure. PCT is a patented, enabling technology platform that uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient and ultra-high levels to safely and reproducibly control bio-molecular interactions (e.g., cell lysis, biomolecule extraction). PBIO’s primary focus is in the development of PCT-based products for biomarker and target discovery, drug design and development, biotherapeutics characterization and quality control, soil and plant biology, forensics and counter-bioterror applications. Additionally, major new market opportunities have emerged in the use of its pressure-based technologies in the following areas: (1) the use of its recently acquired, patented technology from BaroFold Inc. (the “BaroFold” technology) to allow entry into the biopharma contract services sector, and (2) the use of its recently patented, scalable, high-efficiency, pressure-based Ultra Shear Technology (“UST”) platform to (i) create stable nanoemulsions of otherwise immiscible fluids (e.g., oils and water) and (ii) prepare higher-quality, homogenized, extended shelf-life or room-temperature, stable, low-acid liquid foods that cannot be effectively preserved using existing nonthermal technologies.
