BioSante (BPA.OB) – THE BIG REVEAL

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

Leading small-cap pharmaceutical company BioSante Pharmaceuticals (OTCBB: BPA) recently told Market News First about three new developments the company is looking at, and how they could affect the company’s future.BioSante’s CEO Stephen Simes discussed the news in a phone interview, particularly on the introduction of two new products in the BioSante product line: Eslestrin, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – approved estrodiol hormonal gel that Simes expects to be a competitive product in the $1.3 million marketplace; and LibiGel, a female sexual dysfunction gel.

Simes said that the LibiGel product is extremely important at this point because it’s entered the crucial third stage of development before reaching FDA approval – if it passes, it will make LibiGel the first product of its kind on the U.S. market.

“We believe we can be the first product approved in the U.S. for female sexual dysfunction,” Simes said.

In addition, Simes said the company has $18 million in cash “in the pipe” that will bring the company’s current cash balance to over $30 million.

“We’re in very good shape to implement our plans,” Simes added. “We want to create value [for our investors] by performing and delivering to our stockholders.”

Global Beverage (GBVS.OB) Reaches Distribution Agreement for Rudy

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

It’s doubtful that as the Notre Dame football team of 1975 hoisted Daniel “Rudy” Reuttiger on their shoulders, the oil refinery worker turned Fighting Irish icon imagined that he would one day motivate people of all ages around the world. It’s even more doubtful he envisioned he would be the spokesperson for a line of beverages to address rising obesity and diabetes issues.But that’s just what he did. The Rudy Line of Beverages consists of five sports drinks low in sugar and elevated nutritional value compared to other sports drinks on the market.

Rudy Partners Ltd. today announced it signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Beverage Network, a subsidiary of Global Beverage Solutions Inc. (OTCBB: GBVS). Global Beverage shares climbed steadily this morning after the announcement, up 5 cents, nearly 63 percent, to 13 cents Thursday afternoon.

Global Beverage recently sold Rudy Revolution and Rudy! Rudy! Flying Colors to Rudy Partners, granting Global Beverage the rights to distribute Rudy Revolution to the Baltimore, Md. and Washington D.C. markets.

“We are excited to be launching Rudy Revolution in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. market this summer. Given our history and ongoing relationship with Rudy Brands Inc. we will go the extra mile to grow distribution and sales for the Rudy Revolution brand,” said Jerry Pearring, CEO of Global Beverage, in a press release.

Drew Carver, president and co-founder of Rudy Beverage said the company’s strategy is to focus on the metropolitan markets in Buffalo, N.Y., Boston, Ma. and Washington D.C.

“Coming on the heels of successful launches in Boston and Buffalo, we look forward to an equally successful launch in Baltimore-Washington, DC. Beverage Network of Maryland is a very capable distributor with a reputation for growing brands to their full potential and we are certain that Rudy will realize its full potential in this market,” Carver added.

It’s a step toward a huge market, actually. The sports drink industry is worth about $6.8 billion, according to Smallcapresearch. Ruettiger and Carver started Rudy Beverage Inc. to create a line of healthy children-centric beverages and “to fundamentally change the face of the beverage industry,” the company states on its Web site. The company is now a subsidiary of Global Beverage.

AIMS (AWMM.OB) Goes on Acquisition Spree

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

Up-and-coming marketing firm AIMS Worldwide (OTCBB: AMWW) has been on an acquisition spree lately, gobbling up other companies in an effort to expand its operations beyond its original borders.In a recent interview with Market News First, AIMS President and CEO Gerald Garcia Jr. revealed the company’s latest acquisitions and the strategy behind them.

“We have been in an acquisition mode and client development mode,” Garcia said. “We have added a couple of significant emerging clients to our book of business.”

Included among the company’s acquisitions are southwestern U.S.-based restaurant Times Grill, a chain famous for its grilled burgers; BestLine International Research, an emerging microsynthetic lubricant company that recently developed a near-frictionless lubricant for industrial uses; and Street Fighting Marketing, a Ohio-based grassroots marketing firm that gives small-town individuals the chance to market their individual businesses more effectively.

To Garcia, these acquisitions are the perfect reward to several years of hard work.

“In the past four years, we simply have been a company in development working to bring our strategy of changing the marketing paradigm to fruition,” Garcia said. “We think this and next year will be the year that AIMS comes out.”

Garcia said that the core strategy behind all these acquisitions is giving AIMS a larger network of interconnected companies to pass services through, both giving AIMS a wide selection of services and giving customers a wider choice.

“We want to deliver accurate, integrated marketing solutions to our clients,” Garcia said. “If you own the company, you can just pass the business to your company and significantly lower cost of sales.”

RAE Systems Inc (AMEX:RAE) Products Enhance Industrial Worker Safety

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

RAE Systems Inc. (AMEX: RAE) today announced it will exhibit its leading gas detection and industrial hygiene monitoring solutions at the American Industrial Hygienists Conference and Exposition (AIHce) Monday. In addition, RAE will introduce two next-generation, photoionization (PID) based instruments to attendees.Founded in 1991, RAE focuses on global expansion through multiple markets, increasing infrastructure in China and pursuing acquisitions and strategic relationships.

RAE is a global provider of sensor networks that can be quickly deployed for homeland security and industrial use. The sensors alert customers to safety and security threats in real time. RAE products are used in over 65 countries by U.S. government agencies and corporations.

The company is seeing demand in China’s sector as it looks to keep its refinery workers safe.

“We’re doing a good job of riding the industrialization wave in China,” Bob Durstenfeld, director of investor relations for RAE, told Market News First, adding that the company expects 40 percent of its revenue to come out of China’s industrialization sector.

In a recent press release, Thomas Negre, director of instrumentation products for RAE said, “One of the biggest challenges in the field is the effective, accurate sensing of unseen threats in real-time. Our next-generation products for the measurement of toxic and flammable volatile organic compounds (VOCs) put a new level of information in the hand of industrial safety officers.

“Industrial hygienists strive to keep workers, their families, and their communities healthy and safe. They have a critical role in making sure that federal, state, and local laws and regulations are followed in the work environment.”

The company supplies those hygienists with the ability to do so through its marketing and distribution plans, utilizing 130 people in industrial sector about 60 in coal mine safety in China through direct selling methods, and supplying the rest of the world through retailers and distribution centers.

Durstenfeld gave guidance for fiscal 2007, expecting between $90 million and $95 million in 2007 revenue, up roughly 40 percent from $68 million reported in 2006.

Revenue for the first quarter of 2007 was up 45 percent to $18 million from $12.4 million in the same period last year.

“We’re a global company with a strong presence in China with high growth and profits for 2007,” concluded Durstenfeld.

Penge (PNGC.OB) Reduces Debt, Moves Up to OTCBB

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

It’s good to see companies in our space taking the route of being a fully reporting and filing company, moving off the Pink Sheets and listing on the OTCBB. Penge Corp. (OTCBB: PNGC) has had a busy year so far, taking the necessary steps to make this happen.The company recently announced that it received approval from the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) to step up from the Pink Sheet quotation service onto the OTC Bulletin Board effective May 16, 2007. Penge will file its quarterly reports on Form 10-QSB and annual reports on Form 10-KSB, containing financial reports and other important information, with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and expects to hold its annual shareholder meeting in July, 2007. Penge’s fiscal year end is June 30.

Penge reduced its short and long-term debt by $2.45 million dollars during the period from January 1, 2007, to May 2, 2007. The company converted $1,234,299 of short and long-term debt into common stock and reduced its non revenue-producing real estate holdings by approximately $1.22 million dollars for a total monthly interest expense reduction of over $23,000 per month.

“Being a public company and having just reduced our debt by $2.45 million should significantly increase our ability to now create much greater shareholder liquidity and value than ever before,” said KC Holmes – president of Penge – in a press release.

Penge is a public holding company that is vertically integrating the retail and wholesale nursery businesses. Penge’s current holdings include two Texas Landscape Center retail nurseries in Midland and Odessa, Texas, and three wholesale growing facilities in Tucson, Ariz., and Houston and Midland, Texas. Penge maintains its principal offices in Midland.

Spectre Gaming (SGMG.OB) Outlines Immediate Future

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

Electronic gaming machine company Spectre Gaming Inc. (OTCBB: SGMG) recently told Market News First about its plans for the company’s immediate future, including its legal difficulties in Florida and its eventual expansion to Mexico.According to Spectre Gaming CEO, President and Director Brad Olah, the biggest obstacle facing the company right now is getting its products approved in more conservative, anti-gambling counties who mistake the company’s skill-based games for games of random chance.

“We’ve really been refocused on reopening Florida,” Olah said. “The regulatory and business environment we’re in is very unstructured. The market we’re in – the for-prize profit market – the law is that these games are always subject to interpretation by local law enforcement. So [some authorities] look at these devices that look like slot machines, but they’re really not – for example, in Florida, the machines give away gift cards.

“One could interpret these things as slot machines, but they’re really not,” Olah added.

Unfortunately, the company has faced some difficulties in the past few months due to these kinds of interpretations, particularly in Florida.

“We have had no problems in Florida until we hit the 5th judicial circuit which consists of five counties; Citrus, Lake, Marion, Sumter, and Hernando,” Olah said. “They have a very tough state’s attorney that’s taken the position of ‘I don’t care what [expletive] you have, it’s not coming into my county.’”

Still, Olah’s not too worried. Not only are his machines reportedly 100 percent compliant to the standards and laws that govern these machines, but he’s looking forward to an upcoming court confrontation with the state attorney – that way, the state’s laws on gaming machines will be brought back to the legislative eye and put under closer scrutiny.

“We’re looking forward to the legal challenge over the next ninety days,” Olah said. “Our strength is compliance. We try to go over and above… to be able to comply with the law.”

In addition to asserting its rights in Florida, Spectre Gaming just signed on to move 1,300 units down to Mexico.

“We’ve signed a letter of intent about three weeks ago in the cash market, because cash is considered a prize down in Mexico,” concluded Olah.

Astrata Group (ATTG.OB) Discusses $93 Million Contract, 2007 Financials

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

“We have entered a phase of rapid growth, we’re converting the current backlog to revenue and responding to a number of substantial bid requests,” he said. “We expect Astrata to become a very different company during the current fiscal year.”

Astrata’s telematics and GPS (Global Positioning System) technology are applicable to homeland security, military, intelligence, mining, agriculture, marine, public safety and transportation.

The company reported $3.47 million in revenue for fiscal 2007; gross profit rose 90 percent to $1.6 million from $840,000 in fiscal 2006. Astrata’s operating loss narrowed to $6.62 million, from $7.27 million the prior year.

Building Better Boards

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

It’s common knowledge that the board of directors is the backbone and foundation of just about every business. An effective board of directors is an absolute necessity for larger corporations: they help keep management focused and insure that shareholders are protected. But many small companies should also look to create a board of directors, even if they don’t think they need one.

The building of an effective board requires management to think strategically and long term if it wants to eventually build a board of directors that is committed, effective and passionate about its mission. The first step in the process requires the company to analyze the capabilities and resources of the senior management team, identifying challenge areas in the business, and potential solutions, then use that knowledge to drive changes in procedures, communication protocols and in the board selection process.

The composition of a board is unique to every business, as are the individuals on the board. Management should be looking for specific talents for each board position. A fully functional, effective board should have members that bring a diversity of background and hands-on experience in business building, funding strategies, technology and some industry experience.

Everyone knows what it takes to run a successful business, especially a large and complex enterprise. Management obviously needs to have considerable power, but should never be allowed to operate in a vacuum. Power without accountability usually becomes destructive, and usually detrimental to the success of any business large or small. That’s where the role of the board can be effective.

Boards are an American tradition much like democracy. They bring a check and balance system and stability to a business. Boards can help steer new courses or spot trends and evaluate risks that can make or break a business. Boards can provide a road map and guidance for managers. Even more, a board can be a crucial component for survival for a company on life support, or one that’s floundering without direction.

The most pressing challenge for directors, in our current regulatory environment, is performance. To achieve the level of performance expected from them, directors need to be involved and engaged with management. They need to understand their purpose, responsibilities, and have timely access to information on the operations of business in order for them to establish manageable goals and objectives.

The boards of today take many shapes and sizes. There is the passive board, which limits its activities and participation with management. On the other end of the spectrum there is the operating board, which makes key decisions which management implements and that also fills in the gaps in management experience. Which type of board is right for your company is a factor of the size of the business, agenda and management style.

What should your priorities be when you organize a board?

 Start the selection process by picking candidates you can trust. Select people you know well, and that you can count on in a crisis.

 Don’t pick friends or neighbors. Directors should be qualified and competent at what they do. It’s difficult to ask a director to resign, so choose your directors wisely.

 Create diversity. A board should broaden your reach and your way of thinking. Add experienced and talented people to the board that the management team can draw on and access when needed.

 Seek out the best people. Many bankers, investors, customers and the press judge companies by their boards. So you may even need to hire a search firm to find the right directors. It’s worth the effort. A director’s talent should be your primary consideration.

 Be a good student. Creating and managing a board of directors is as much a science as it is an art. Look at other successful business as examples and learn about the politics and nuances of the board game before you make any definitive decisions.

 Look to the future. Every business should be arming itself with the special skills it needs to be competitive in a global economy. Plan for the future and add board members that bring with them the skills you need to manage your business today as well as tomorrow.

An ambitious board-building process is about building a culture within your organization whereby everyone is involved in the value creation process, not just innocent bystanders. Keep in mind that boards cannot easily change their culture, but as members learn to function as a team, board culture will change. The more board members are engaged and understand the company’s agenda the closer they are to becoming the best board possible for the given situation.

An effective board building process contributes not only to the overall performance of the business but also to member satisfaction. So choose your board members wisely, always remembering that the board is the team behind the scenes. A supporting cast and a support group for management.

What makes great boards great are people that can work together as a team with common goals and a defined purpose. As Warren Buffet said many years ago, “Show me a good board, and I’ll show you a good company.”

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

Compress Technologies, Inc. (CTLG.PK), a technology-based company with patented and protected applications that improve bandwidth and network topographies, reports that the Company is set to welcome a Korean Delegation.
A major Korean delegation of 3 high-ranking officials from the Teltron Corporation announced interest in CTLG technology for use on set top boxes and antennas. A demonstration is to be shown at CTLG/Walker’s Edison N.J. laboratory. The delegation includes those officials who are directly responsible for the interpretation, implementation, and promulgation of antenna technology of Teltron into use of mobile and stationary antennas. The idea is to make sure the compression technology is full use with the technology of Teltron.

While we have met with these officers of Teltron, this will be the first time they have come to the US to discuss directly with our member companies representatives the details of the USA and European antennas,” said Rodney Kincaid President Balmoral shareholder to CTLG. “This will be an extremely valuable opportunity to get first-hand answers from these officers directly responsible for merging technology. At the same time, both companies will be able to engage the delegation on several concerns that we hope can be addressed.”

Reed’s, Inc. (REED.OB) – Ginger is a Hit with Many Top Publications

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

For thousands of years ginger has been used as a spice and medicine in Asian cultures, and today it comes in many different forms. Its distinctive flavor has made it a favorite for countless years.

In April of last year, Forbes recognized ginger’s potency after a new study found that ginger can eliminate ovarian cancer cells. Not only does it eliminate the cells, but it also may keep them from reappearing.

Natural Health listed Ginger twice in its report, “The 55 Best Herbal Remedies”. It ranked in 19th place for preventing nausea, and in 20th for preventing morning sickness.

Parenting wrote an article on ginger’s strong curing power of morning sickness in June of 2004. The article specifically mentioned the relief a mom of two children found in Reed’s Original Ginger Brews during her pregnancy. Three-Fourth of those who take placebos still felt sick, while two-thirds taking ginger felt better in a week.

Consumer Reports on Health wrote on ginger’s nausea fighting attributes in the article “Food sense; Foods to fix everyday ailments”. The publication commented on studies which have proven ginger can relieve nausea caused by motion sickness, early pregnancy, or chemotherapy as effectively as over-the-counter drugs can.

Reed’s motivation to introduce new and exciting products is fueled by ginger’s great taste and health-giving qualities. Much is expected from this company as its revenues continue to grow.

StockGuru Blog: Rushnet Targets JAPAN! And for Very GOOD reason. RSHN Up as Much as 33% Since StockGuru Initiated Coverage

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

Rushnet Targets Japanese Market

Rush OTC: RSHN Stock Guru Profile

Japan is the initial target market for RushNet’s sales of their new beverage, Deep Ocean Water from Hawaii.

Hawaiian Deep Ocean Water is harvested from 600 meters – 2,000 feet below the Ocean surface off Oahu, Hawaii, where the water has been protected from the influences of the toxic environment of the Earth’s surface. This remarkably pure resource is considered the healthiest source of water available today. It undergoes state of the art desalinization and R/O treatment on station, and is securely shipped to RushNet Inc. in 5,200 gallon flexitank lined containers. Link to DO Water process.

Japan is the ultimate test market for beverages; it has six million vending machines and 40,000-plus convenience stores. The result is about 1,000 new drink products released every year, making Japan’s beverage market among the most crowded in the world. Hit drinks can sell half a billion cans a year. The approach has made Japan into a kind of world-wide beverage testing ground, says Gary Hemphill, managing director of the Beverage Marketing Corp. in New York.

Japan has a prolonged interest in beverages that are energy and health enhancers. In the U.S., soft-drinks makers usually conduct years of consumer research before launching a product. Japanese producers do limited research, throw new varieties on the shelves and see what happens.

Minoru Matsumoto, a senior officer at Seven & I Holdings Co. — Japan’s biggest convenience-store operator and the owner of 7-Eleven stores world-wide says it is typical for Japanese customers to become bored with drinks faster than ever.

To keep up with this constant desire for new products, convenience-store chains demand beverage makers provide them with unique — and sometimes exclusive — products. Advanced in-store technology tracks sales daily, and flops are pulled from the shelves in as little as three weeks. The power of the convenience stores is so great that they sometimes charge drink makers “placement fees” to secure prime real estate in the drinks aisle.

Pressure to maintain the right image with consumers and a good standing with retailers pushes beverage makers to launch hundreds of new drinks a year.

“It’s becoming a self-perpetuating system,” says Dave McCaughan, executive vice president at marketing communications company McCann Erickson Japan, a part of Interpublic Group of Cos.’ McCann Worldgroup. “The whole industry is just geared towards new products, new products, new products.”

This is a smart move for Rushnet. Japan’s beverage industry is well developed and Deep Ocean Water is the type of product consumers are willing to try in a country where brand loyalty is almost non-existent.
