$UUUU Other US Uranium Producers to Benefit from Extended Limitations on Russian Imports

Energy Fuels (NYSE American: UUUU) (TSX: EFR), the largest uranium mining company in the United States, announced that the U.S. Department of Commerce has finalized a deal with Russia to reduce Russian imports through 2040. The Russian Suspension Agreement extends limitations on uranium imports from Russia into the United States and is a key step toward reviving the long-term health of the U.S. uranium mining industry. The agreement was originally scheduled to expire at the end of 2020 and could have resulted in unlimited Russian uranium imports into the country. “Energy Fuels thanks the Department of Commerce for its efforts in reducing U.S. dependence on Russian uranium in the long term,” said Energy Fuels president and CEO Mark Chalmers in the press release. “This is a critical step in restoring U.S. leadership in the global nuclear fuel sector and helping to revive the U.S. uranium mining industry. . . . While the agreement does a good job at blocking Russia’s stated intention to expand its share of the U.S. uranium market over the long-term, it only provides U.S. uranium miners with limited immediate relief. Today’s announcement therefore highlights the importance and urgency of Congress appropriating the funds requested by the U.S. Department of Energy to support the strategic Uranium Reserve recommended by the U.S. Nuclear Fuel Working Group.

$NETE Highlighted as $UBER Promises to Go All-Electric by 2030

Over the next decade or so, most developed countries plan to phase out internal combustion-engine vehicles in exchange for electric vehicles (“EVs”). Not only do they run on clean energy, but EV’s have zero emissions, making them perfect for drivers who are keen on reducing their carbon footprint. Rideshare giant Uber Technologies Inc. (NYSE: UBER) recently announced an ambitious plan to have “100 percent” of rides take place in electric vehicles by 2030 in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, and it is using an interesting strategy to achieve it.

Instead of directly paying drivers to trade their fossil-fuel vehicles for EVs, Uber will impose an extra fee on trips completed in an electric vehicle to incentivize drivers to go green. Under the “Uber Green” plan, the rideshare giant will charge a dollar extra to riders who specifically request a hybrid or a fully electric vehicle in 15 cities in the U.S. and Canada. Drivers using hybrid or electric vehicles to pick up passengers will get an extra 50 cents per ride while drivers who specifically use battery-electric vehicles will get an extra dollar for a total of $1.50 extra per ride.

This will make trips in hybrid or electric vehicles slightly more expensive for Uber customers but the company sees this as a necessary cost to help speed the transition to a zero-emissions fleet. Additionally, Uber says it will also spend $800 million of its own money to help “hundreds of thousands of drivers in the U.S., Canada, and Europe transition to battery EVs by 2025.” The company believes that incentivizing rather than punishing drivers is the best way to achieve zero emissions. Aside from getting a little extra cash per passenger for using an EV, drivers won’t be required to drive electric or hybrid vehicles to make money on Uber’s app, even by 2030.

“During the first lockdown, we saw a glimpse of the positive impacts of the record low emissions as a result of less transportation: blue skies replacing smog among city skylines, wildlife returning and pollution levels falling. Clogged roadways transforming into spaces for walking and cycling,” says Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi. “But it won’t last. Emission levels are already heading back to pre-COVID highs as recovery from the pandemic continues. And at Uber, we’ve been thinking about what we can do.”

“We want to take this moment as an opportunity to do more, to do better, and to do our part to drive a green recovery in our cities.”

Experts say it is these kinds of initiatives that companies like Net Element (NASDAQ: NETE) can be proud to associate with since they seek to empower working people while safeguarding the environment.

$DRIO Penn State Researchers Examine Possibility of Coronavirus Infecting Livestock

The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently awarded a grant to Penn State that will enable its researchers to study the possibility of SARS-CoV-2 infecting and spreading among livestock.

SARS-CoV-2 stands for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2. It is the strain of coronavirus that causes the novel coronavirus which resulted in the global pandemic.

The grant, through the USDA’s Agricultural and Food Research Initiative, was awarded to a team that is led by Suresh Kuchipudi, a clinical professor of veterinary and biomedical sciences in the College of Agricultural Sciences.

Kuchipudi notes that the coronavirus pandemic is still the most notable public health crisis that has occurred in the modern era and the unprecedented spread of SARS-CoV-2 globally could pose a serious exposure risk to livestock. In the course of the pandemic, scientists state that the new virus has continuously mutated and there now exist many genetic variations of SARS-CoV-2.

Kuchipudi, who is also Penn State’s Animal Diagnostic Laboratory associate director, explained that the first SARS virus infected less than 9,000 people in 2002 and affected pigs the most.

Despite the fact that the virus was contained quickly and did not spread widely, it showed the ability of the SARS viruses to infect agricultural animals. He said that a spillover SARS-CoV-2 into the agricultural sector would be devastating for the U.S. because the livestock sector plays the vital role of providing a reliable and safe food supply, in addition to jobs and other economic benefits.

The research on the vulnerability of livestock to SARS-CoV-2 will determine whether the virus can mutate and spread in agricultural animals. To be on the safe side, these experiments will be done in a level 3 biosafety environment. Additionally, this team of researchers will be using computer models to evaluate the possibility of the virus infecting the livestock.

The research team will create diagnostic tests that will be used to monitor the presence of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in livestock. Kuchipudi states that their results might help in the betterment of decision-making strategies with regard to safeguarding the agricultural supply chain as well as the well-being of the farming community, the safety of food and the security and health of livestock.

Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences, Penn State is credited by Kuchipudi for assisting in the quick assembly of a team to establish methods and produce preliminary data. This, he said, helped in securing the competitive grant.  Experts say companies like DarioHealth Corp. (NASDAQ: DRIO) are glad that such an outstanding team of researchers will look into the susceptibility of livestock to COVID-19.

$POAI Why Additional Research is Needed to Examine Falls & Aging

Some things are inevitable in life, and you are bound to experience them sooner or later. For instance, aging and falls are some of them. You probably have experienced it or know one or several individuals who have undergone it. Since the world is evolving each day, resources must be directed towards researchers and research, especially in the biomedical field in relation to these realities.

Surveys have revealed that almost 10% of the world population consists of people who are 65 years old and above. It has further been predicted that the number is bound to rise by18% by the year 2050. Additionally, the death toll from falls has been rising steadily from 2007 and will continue to climb as people get older. Despite the bigger number of the aging population, clinicians are insufficient to bridge the health sector gap appropriately.

The aging population has tremendously led to a decreased workforce, increased consumer demand, and financial pressures. This has contributed to the shortage of personnel in the medical field. Therefore, it is necessary to expose and integrate the upcoming and potential physicians to the global issues that are related to aging at the early stages of their training. If that is done, more students will be attracted to undertake the health-related courses connected to the aging process.

It is a practical necessity that future researchers be equipped with the skills and knowledge to handle the elderly. Today, most of the world public health training is happening after students have already specialized in their areas of interest. Henceforth, it will be beneficial if the upcoming cohorts research workforce on aging be nurtured to include the different groups.

Further research reveals that the aging population of African Americans, Asians, mixed-race, and Hispanics is bound to increase while that of Non-Hispanics and whites is expected to decrease. It will be beneficial if the talents of the underrepresented minority groups are put into good use. To have adequate personnel, other factors such as gender, ethnicity, race, socio-economic background, and physical ability have to be considered when training healthcare professionals.

Furthermore, only 20% of the underrepresented groups that pursue their undergraduate studies under STEM always finish their courses. The challenge always comes when engaging this minority group about the STEM courses without breaching the academic standards. A time has come when students have to participate in active research to gain professional experience.

A big mantle has to be carried by the Historically Black Colleges and Universities. They play a role in the 2% of the nation’s degree-granting institutions, but they produce almost 40% of African American STEM degree students. A strong need has been created to develop educational programs that will equip undergraduate students in careers that address the world health problems, especially aging.

Biomedical engineering devices, interventions, and designs are set to be investigated by the University of the District of Columbia (“UDC”). UDC is poised to offer a good environment for the study of the biomedical engineering degree. The program is aiming at emphasizing aging-based courses and training.

Furthermore, UDC will offer rare aging-related research courses that will be available to undergraduate students. Invaluable training will also be provided to the underrepresented minority learners to help solve the situation. Bringing diverse groups on board, various solutions will also be available, which will bring balance in the global health sector. Furthermore, having diverse researchers on board will be a vital and major solution to the world’s medical problems, mainly on aging.

It would be eye-opening to learn what research entities like Predictive Oncology (NASDAQ: POAI) are doing in relation to the specific health challenges the elderly in the community face.

$WTER 420 with CNW – Affordable Deals Drive Ohio Residents to Michigan to Purchase Medical Marijuana

Michigan has a new consumer market: Ohio’s medical cannabis patients and no, it’s not because their marijuana is better or of a higher quality. Only because it’s cheaper. Marijuana card holders from Ohio have revealed numerous times that they only travel to the cannabis clinics up north in Michigan to save money.

One medical marijuana patient recently stated in an interview that most Ohio clinics charged double the price that dispensaries in Michigan did. Another cannabis card holder, George McClure, admitted to going to Michigan dispensaries as they were far cheaper, even after factoring in the amount he’d spend to pay for gas to and from Michigan. He added that he signed himself up for text notifications that would inform him when Michigan cannabis clinics had sales, which would allow him to save almost 90% of what he’d pay in Ohio.

Most officials in Ohio’s medical cannabis industry hypothesize that once the cannabis industry in the state matures, the prices will decrease, making the herb more affordable to its consumers. State bodies who are tracking consumer costs support this notion.

It is estimated that approximately 9% of Michigan’s legal marijuana is sold to non-residents of the state, particularly individuals from Ohio and Indiana.

Michigan did have a head start though, seeing as they legalized medical cannabis over a decade ago and legalized recreational marijuana in 2018 for residents who are 21 years of age and above. Sales for recreational marijuana began in the state in late December of 2019.

This also makes Michigan a mature market in comparison to Ohio’s new market. However, buying medical marijuana in another state has its disadvantages. For instance, carrying cannabis across state lines, even legal cannabis, is illegal. Residents of Ohio can therefore, travel to Michigan and purchase the drug at any Michigan cannabis clinic of their choice but need to consume it before travelling back to Ohio.

Both states are however looking into an agreement that would allow cannabis cardholders who live in Ohio to purchase marijuana in Michigan and carry it back to Ohio. Nothing has been finalized though. Ohio issued a letter to medical cannabis cardholders that would allow them to bring cannabis products from Michigan for a period of 60 days after Ohio started a patient registry in 2018.

However, this appears not to apply to all Ohio residents who consume medical marijuana. Some residents of Ohio claim that prices in Ohio’s cannabis dispensaries are actually affordable. That is yet to be proven though.

It is such interstate activity that prompts analysts to think that sector players like The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (CSE: WTER) (NASDAQ: WTER) would be happier is the federal government legalized marijuana so that patients are free to buy and transport cannabis products anywhere around the country.

$UUUU Europe Joins Scramble for Critical Minerals

Precious minerals have become very crucial that every miner is not taking chances. Some continents like Europe have realized that they are running out of these precious minerals. Furthermore, Europe is also facing competition from low-cost minerals from China. The situation is putting Europe at a critical stage as it has to struggle and recover its sustainable minerals.

However, for this to happen, Europe will have to produce many of these minerals that the region does not have. This has forced the European Union to follow the U.S. and Japan’s footsteps to build its metallic supply. It is predicted that these precious metals will also play a vital role in determining the global economic order.

Europe’s Important Minerals

Like the U.S., Europe’s crucial minerals comprise some of the least known minerals, such as scandium, hafnium, and beryllium. Other minerals such as titanium, lithium, bauxite, and strontium have been added to the list of those critical minerals. Helium has been removed from the crucial minerals due to a drop in its economic value. Nickel, too, has not been added to the list but is being closely monitored.

Titanium and aluminum have also been subjected to national security investigations in the U.S. This has led to the introduction of some excise duty upon their supplier countries. Aluminum has also been identified by the World Bank as the main metal to help in achieving higher demands of renewable energy. However, it may be difficult to accomplish this as Europe’s aluminum production has been steadily declining since 2008.

Strontium has found itself among the crucial minerals because the whole of Europe depends on one European country for the supply of this metal. The metal is vital as it is used in the manufacture of robotics and ceramic magnets.

Lithium is not excluded from the list as it plays an important role in the manufacture of electric car batteries. It is considered crucial as it is one of the pillars in helping curb the spread of carbon in the atmosphere. The European Battery Alliance has also given the metal prominence, and most European industries also rely on it for their industrial ecosystem.

Areas of Importance

Europe’s minerals can be largely traced across the Atlantic. However, building a mineral supply from scratch will be a difficult task. For instance, 80% of the supply of lithium for car batteries must just come from Europe. However, this is a very aggressive target as refining lithium into its chemical form to make the batteries requires technical knowledge. The experts can only be found in China and Asia, hence putting Europe at crossroads.

Additionally, Europe will have to collaborate with other processers that offer friendly prices, such as Australia and Canada. The EU is also planning to integrate Ukraine and Norway and the Western Balkans into EU supply chains. Having a concrete partnership with other developing countries that are rich in minerals will also be essential. The only remaining thing is to see where Europe will invest its cash as it is on the verge of expanding its area of influence.

Competition from China

As china is dominating in the processing of minerals such as lithium and aluminum, it will force the EU to shift their supply chains away from China. Additionally, the EU will also have to defend their domestic producers from Chinese producers operating in parallel.

Furthermore, European production must be protected from unfair competition from the global market. Europe should also take other precautions, like investigating the imports of aluminum and other products to survive in the worldwide market.

This growing realization of how important the mining sector can be is most likely music to the ears of companies like Energy Fuels Inc. (NYSE American: UUUU) (TSX: EFR) since governments now appreciate the role they play in national development.

$UUUU Commerce Department Announces Deal to Reduce Russian Uranium Imports Over Long-Term; Key Step in Helping to Revive the U.S. Uranium Industry

Establishing Strategic Uranium Reserve Now Will Help Ensure U.S. Uranium Miners Can Benefit from the Agreement’s Long-Term Restrictions

LAKEWOOD, Colo.Sept. 14, 2020Energy Fuels Inc. (NYSE American: UUUU) (TSX: EFR) (“Energy Fuels”), the leading producer of uranium in the United States, is pleased to announce that the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Commerce”) has obtained Russia’s agreement to extend limits on uranium imports into the U.S. from Russia through 2040 under an extended Russian Suspension Agreement (“RSA”). This is an important step toward maintaining the long-term health of the U.S. uranium mining industry, especially since the expiration of the RSA at the end of 2020 could have resulted in unlimited Russian uranium imports into the U.S.

Commerce won important concessions from Russia, including lower quotas starting in the mid-2020’s, allowing only a portion of the quotas to be used for the sale of U3O8 and conversion into the U.S., and strict controls on Russian enrichment service contracts.

Mark S. Chalmers, President and CEO of Energy Fuels stated:  “Energy Fuels thanks the Department of Commerce for their efforts in reducing U.S. dependence on Russian uranium in the long tem. This is a critical step in restoring U.S. leadership in the global nuclear fuel sector and helping to revive the U.S. uranium mining industry.

“While we are pleased with the long-term prospects available to established U.S. uranium producers like Energy Fuels, the shorter-term picture for the U.S. uranium industry still remains uncertain. Even though Commerce has negotiated lower quotas starting in the mid-2020’s, the agreement allows for the ‘grandfathering’ of existing contracts between U.S. nuclear utilities and Russian state-owned enterprises, which will actually result in Russian uranium imports into the U.S. increasing during the next three years, before decreasing in the mid 2020’s. While the agreement does a good job at blocking Russia’s stated intention to expand its share of the U.S. uranium market over the long-term, it only provides U.S. uranium miners with limited immediate relief. Today’s announcement therefore highlights the importance and urgency of Congress appropriating the funds requested by the U.S. Department of Energy to support the strategic Uranium Reserve recommended by the U.S. Nuclear Fuel Working Group. Establishing the Uranium Reserve now will help ensure that U.S. uranium production capabilities can benefit from the long-term restrictions imposed under the extended RSA. We also support the efforts of Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming to put this agreement into law ‘so Russia cannot walk away from the deal’ in the future.

“The U.S. cannot consider itself to be energy independent when we are nearly 100% dependent on imports to fuel the nuclear power plants that provide nearly 20% of U.S. electricity. It is vital that Congress appropriate the funds to create the strategic Uranium Reserve to support U.S. national security and reduce Russia’s influence on the U.S. energy grid. Energy Fuels will continue to lead industry initiatives to reduce U.S. dependence on uranium imports from geopolitical challengers, including Russia.”

Commerce is releasing a draft amendment of the RSA for public comment. Comments will be due by 5:00 pm EDT on September 28, 2020. The draft amendment is available to registered users at https://access.trade.gov (reference case number A-821-802), and it will also be published in the Federal Register. Commerce is seeking to finalize an amendment to the RSA no later than October 5, 2020, at which time it will go into effect and become binding on the U.S. and Russia.

About Energy Fuels: 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.

$DRIO Uneven Brain Growth Might Be Behind Risky Behavior in Adolescents

Every parent knows that no two children are alike. So you’re wondering why your adolescent children take more risks as compared to the others but you have no explanation? Look no further. Scientists have discovered that in adolescents, the two centers of the brain; the one that makes them want to take risks as well as the other which works on preventing them from acting on these impulses, physically develop at different rates. It is reported that adolescents who have bigger differences in the rates of development of these two centers are much more likely to be risk-takers as compared to those with smaller differences.

This study was carried out by Curtis Johnson, a Biomedical Engineer from the University of Delaware and a graduate student, Grace McIIvain. The details of their study are explored below.

The socioemotional system refers to the part of the brain that compels adolescents to want to take risks while the cognitive control center is the part that helps stop them from acting on the said impulses.

As we previously mentioned above, the two centers mature at different rates. Researchers hypothesize that the fundamental structure of the brain manages the control and risk-taking tendencies.

The study used Magnetic Resonance Elastography to measure the brain tissues’ mechanical properties as a way to evaluate brain development. Elastography is a technique of imaging mechanical features of tissues using an MRI scanner. In layman’s language, scientists take snapshots showing how the brain bends as it vibrates under low frequencies. The images are then put through an algorithm that reverse engineers what is happening. If you are skeptical about safety, Johnson insists that MRE vibration is safe for individuals of all ages and as compared to the natural movement in the brain, it causes minimal movement. Additionally, it offers a lower vibration than other designated child devices.

MRE methods have also been used in adults to study diseases like Alzheimer’s, with research findings indicating relationships between cognitive performance and memory. These techniques are said to offer a more sensitive and objective way to study the wiring of an individual’s brain.

Johnson asserts that if they can point out individuals, based on their brain’s composition, that are more likely to take risks, it may help form prevention strategies.

Moreover, McIIvain added that equipped with the full understanding of the brain’s mechanical properties in an individual who has autism, they would be a step closer towards finding a way to accurately diagnose autism. This research is likely to be of great interest to entities like DarioHealth Corp. (NASDAQ: DRIO) who have an interest in using digital solutions to address health problems.

Cybin Corp. Focused on Advancing New Products Amid Positive Research in Psychedelics

Cybin Corp., an exemplary Canada-based, life-science company focused on the development of pharmaceutical-grade psilocybin products, is at the forefront of change in an era open to exploring psychedelic treatment options where big pharma has failed. Started in the 1940s, but kiboshed in the 1960s with President Richard Nixon’s war on drugs, researchers have once again picked up the study of psychedelics in the treatment of mental health conditions. Research is showing positive results for many indications and disorders including depression, anxiety, PTSD, addictions, ADHD and more. A recent article discussing this reads, “Cybin believes that psychedelic substances derived from mushrooms can work as boosters for the brain, potentially rebuilding pathways and breaking negative patterns. Today more than 700 million people around the world struggle with mental illness, addiction or eating disorders — all areas where the benefits of psychedelic substances is being studied. What’s more, even though over 40 million Americans are taking psychiatric drugs, big pharma has not produced any new drug innovations in the last ten years (http://nnw.fm/RT9bI).”

$POAI Combining Silk with Synthetic Compounds: The Future of Biomedical Implants

Silk has an extensive history of being used in medical practices. For example, there exist vast records of doctors in the past using fibers that were spun by silkworms to stitch up patients nearly 200 years ago. Today, surgeons sometimes use silk sutures to finish certain operations, like eye surgeries.

This is mainly because silk is not only safe for use in a human body but is also tolerated well by the human body. In some instances, the body degrades and absorbs it. This is not silk’s only application. Its potential is limitless as researchers explore the different ways in which it can be used in biomedical applications. These researchers predict that in the future, silk combined with various synthetic compounds, may be used as knee cartilage cushion replacements as well as structures that hold bones in place after an operation.

Juan Guan, the principal investigator of this project and her colleagues are looking into various ways that will allow them to develop versatile materials that will be used in medicine and possibly, other fields. While other scientists may have come up with composite materials using silk, Guan and her colleagues are on a different path, focusing on silk fabric that is woven from one long thread. The study is using two types of commonly found silk i.e. Bombyx mori, from the domesticated silkworm and the Antheraea pernyi, which comes from a wild species that produces a tougher and stretchy fiber.

This, she explains, is because silkworm cocoons usually contain about 5000-foot-long fibers, which when utilized as a whole in fabric, can better distribute mechanical stress as compared to shorter fibers, which is what other scientists are working with. The researchers then bind this fabric using a polymer matrix, which forms a laminate, making it easier for it to be cut into the desired shapes that the researchers need to continue their research.

Guan as well as her colleagues also state that the features of these materials are a much better fit for human body tissues in comparison to what is in use currently. However, there are challenges that come with using this material in an individual’s body. For instance, the human body is moist on the inside, which may weaken and soften the silk.

Recent experiments that were carried out by the team discovered that while the stiffness of the material decreased in wetter surroundings, the composites still endured and were stiff enough to be able to function as implants. Research on integration of high-performance natural fibers is yet to be complete but the future shows promise, especially with regard to biomedical appliances.

What would biomedical companies like Predictive Oncology (NASDAQ: POAI) do with a blend of silk and several polymers?

$NETE Trojan Energy Could Hold the Key to the Future of EV Charging

Although most developed governments have plans to phase out internal combustion-engine vehicles for electric vehicles over the next decade or so, one issue that stands in their way is charging. EVs generally don’t have that much range, unless you’re willing to shell out a few extra bucks for a vehicle with a larger battery and greater range. And even if you can afford to, chances are you will have to deal with issues like spotty charging infrastructure (unless you buy a Tesla which has its own network of charging systems).

However, technology pioneered by Trojan Energy may completely change the EV charging game as we know it. In a bid to create an elegant charging system that doesn’t sacrifice sidewalks and curbs to cables, Trojan Energy has developed an EV charging pole that comes out of the sidewalk to charge then slides back in when it is done. “With no permanent footprint or street clutter, it’s only visible when a vehicle is charging.” the company says.

“Better for wheelchair users, visually impaired, baby buggies, delivery drivers, children on bikes and scooters, teenagers on phones, refuse collectors, street cleaners, mobility scooters, and everyone on a busy pavement. Far less damaging in heritage areas.” Additionally, the charging poles provide up to 22 kW of power, just enough juice to quickly charge your battery pack without having to worry about degrading it.

Trojan Energy will be installing 200 of these charging poles into sidewalks in Brent and Camden in London, UK. “The Subsurface Technology for Electric Pathways (‘STEP’) project has been awarded £3m in co-funding by Innovate UK. If successful, it will enable entire streets to be filled with charging points so that no matter where a driver parks, they will be able to charge their EV,” writes Element Energy, a cleantech-focused consultant that is assisting with the pilot project.

“The technology consists of two parts, a charge point slotted into the ground, and a lance which is inserted into the charge point in order to charge. The charger can provide charge rates from 2kW to 22kW and up to 18 chargers can run parallel from one electricity network connection.” Trojan energy says that its goal is to become the UK’s leading conduit for vehicle-to-grid (“V2G”) use.

“By aggregating demand through one central power cabinet the possibility of EV to grid will become commercially viable. Ultimately we aim, with the help of our customers, to become the UK’s biggest battery allowing us to power the UK for days at a time if the wind doesn’t blow. The rewards for our customers and our planet will be massive and prove the point that a big idea and great engineering can change the world.”

Entities like Net Element (NASDAQ: NETE) would gladly partner with innovative companies like Trojan Energy that are addressing a pressing need in an environmentally conscious way.

$SRAX Bolsters Investment Analytics Platform Through Acquisition of LD Micro

  • SRAX acquiring LD Micro, leading information portal providing intraday information on micro-cap stocks
  • Acquisition to accelerate adoption of Sequire, SRAX’s investment data analytics platform
  • Sequire revenue grew 29% year-over-year for Q2 2020
  • SRAX entered into $13 million definitive securities purchase agreement to fund Sequire’s rapid expansion

SRAX Inc. (NASDAQ: SRAX), a digital marketing and consumer data management technology company, recently announced that it will acquire LD Micro, a leading data and event company serving the small and micro-cap space. Initially founded in 2006, LD Micro has grown from a newsletter into a portal that provides exclusive intraday information covering North American stocks with market capitalizations between $50 million and $300 million. SRAX’s move comes at a time of rapid growth for Sequire, its investment data analytics platform, making the acquisition a synergistic gain for both parties.

“LD Micro is, without a doubt, one of the most well-known and respected brands in micro-cap. Chris Lahiji and his team have done an incredible job of creating a loyal community of investors and issuers,” said SRAX founder and CEO Christopher Miglino. “LD Micro is also accretive to our investors from day one. We are confident that together we’ll accelerate the adoption of Sequire, while also enhancing LD Micro’s digital assets” (http://nnw.fm/ppRfl).

Sequire helps public companies unlock the power of data by providing tools that give valuable insights on the activities of both retail and institutional investors, in addition to providing the critical data necessary to activate successful marketing campaigns. With over one million active investors and traders across 91 public companies, the platform has experienced rapid growth since its creation in 2019, due mostly to its in-demand suite of products that include tools to harness investor intelligence and outreach, warrant tracking, survey creation, events and roadshows and customer relationship/resource management (“CRM”).

“What Chris and his team at SRAX have built is simply remarkable,” said LD Micro founder Chris Lahiji, who is expected to join SRAX’s board of directors following the acquisition.

“The platform is an absolute game-changer for public companies and their shareholders. Both companies believe that one day executives will rely on Sequire the same way investors rely on Bloomberg. Over 1,500 companies have presented at LD Micro’s events since 2008, and almost all of them would be immediate beneficiaries of this technology.”

LD Micro recently hosted its LD 500 conference in early September, featuring updates from hundreds of companies representing a wide range of industries. The online conference, considered to be the most ambitious project in LD Micro’s 14-year history, incorporated interviews and keynotes with small-cap royalty from some of the most prominent companies in the micro-cap world.

“We are also impressed with SRAX’s plans for the next generation of events,” continued Lahiji. “With more than one million investors on Sequire so far, we will continue hosting industry-leading forums with an audience that is 50 times our current reach.”

Besides doubling its user base since July to over a million investors and traders (http://nnw.fm/JRZtk), Sequire has also seen impressive financial success with 29% year-over-year revenue growth for Q2 2020, fueling plans to fund the platform’s expansion through an agreement for the purchase and sale of $13 million senior secured convertible debentures (http://nnw.fm/9fMKq). Besides Sequire, SRAX continues to capitalize on the growing demand for quantifiable and detailed consumer data through the creation and development of other specialized tools for the CPG, luxury goods and lifestyle verticals that reveal core consumers and their characteristics across various marketing channels.
