Monday, March 31st, 2008

China Voice, a public holding company of next-generation communications products and services, announced March 31, 2008 that its wholly owned U.S. subsidiary, Phone House Inc., a Master Distributor of prepaid calling cards and other telephony related products and services, signed an Exclusive Supplier Agreement with Sara Enterprises Inc., which is a distributor of prepaid telecommunication products.

Phone House offers a large collection of cards that are intended for major ethnic groups. Its products are marketed through an extensive and rapidly expanding national distribution network.

President and CEO of CHVC, Bill Burbank said, “We are very excited to have completed negotiations with Sarah Enterprises, a well known and respected Company that is currently purchasing in excess of $17 Million of product annually. We expect that with our support infrastructure and financial resources, Sarah Enterprises will purchase upwards of $25 Million of our prepaid calling card products during the next 12 months, representing an approximate 40% increase in our U.S. revenues. As the foreign communities in the U.S. continue to grow, they require the ability to call their home countries at competitive rates and this leads to increased demand for the products that Phone House and Sarah Enterprises market.”

Burbank continued to say, “As we continue to complete the Exclusive Supplier Agreements that we have in the works with other quality distributors such as Sarah Enterprises, CHVC is getting within reach of our $100 Million goal in U.S. revenues. These U.S. sales combined with the deployment of our Chinese Government contracts will eventually deliver well balanced revenues for CHVC from both continents. I am very happy with the performance of the team that we have assembled to execute our Business Plan and feel that if the accomplishments that have been achieved thus far in 2008 are any indication of what to expect for the rest of the year, this will be a great year for CHVC and its shareholders.”

Tamm Oil & Gas Corp. (TAMO.OB) Receives Research Note from Ernest C. Schlotter, SISM Research Analyst

Monday, March 31st, 2008

Ernest C. Schlotter, a senior analyst with SISM Research – a private investment research firm offering high-quality, independent, fundamental research on public companies – has released a Research Note on Tamm Oil & Gas, an emerging junior oil and gas exploration and development company based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, dated March 28th 2008, stating the company’s Sawn Lake Project “holds 3P recoverable reserves and up to 175 million barrels of oil.”

Tamm Oil & Gas intends to add corporate asset value through the drilling and production of heavy oil. Tamm has obtained 21 contiguous pieces of land, or 13,440 acres, known as the Manning Properties in the Peace River Oil Sands Area of NW Alberta. The Company has 100% working interest in mineral rights on these lands. Tamm has also entered into a Letter of Intent to acquire a 10% interest in 63 contiguous sections of oil sands leases in the Sawn Lake area of Alberta’s Peace River oil sands.

“Pan Orient’s (POE.V) Sawn Lake Project was recently valued by DeGolyer and MacNaughton, and based on 27.1 net sections, was calculated to hold net probable reserves of 72.9 million barrels and a net reserves PV10 value of $405 million,” said Analyst Schlotter. “Tamm has 31.5 net sections in the same area, which can be valued at a net present value of $470.8 million, discounted at ten percent, based on DeGolyer and MacNaughton’s forecasted pricing. In February of 2004, Ryder Scott estimated that the Sawn Lake Project contained 819 million barrels of OOIP, while log analyses indicated up to 1.6 billion barrels of oil-in-place. In late 2004, AJM of Calgary estimated oil-in-place at 1.2 billion barrels, with the potential for significant expansion of resource. Three drilling programs in 2006 confirmed that Sawn Lake is a heavy oil play with the possibility of cold flow in some parts of the reservoir.”

Schlotter also said, “Tamm Oil and Gas has an attractive valuation, trading at thirty-one percent of its 2008E FDNAVPS. The SISM Research NAV breakdown, based on our per-barrel value assumptions on recent oil sands transaction metrics, is $6.56. We estimate that it will take approx. three to four years, on average, for an SAGD producer to convert contingent resources to reserves. Based on the DeGolyer and MacNaughton reserves appraisal report, just recently released, we arrived at a NAV breakdown of $4.12 for the Sawn Lake Project only.”

A Strange Tale in Chocolate Land

Monday, March 31st, 2008

What could be more innocuous than making candy? You would think that the Hershey Company (NYSE: HSY), with an almost mythic simplicity, its wonderfully personable origins, and an equally redoubtable brand of chocolate, could be an unassailable business. The late Milton Hershey, who founded the company over 100 years ago and built “The Sweetest Place on Earth” – Hershey, Pennsylvania (the all-in-one company town, resort and fantasy place for chocoholics) – might be troubled at how making and selling chocolate confections has become such a troublesome business, with the sweetness mostly gone.

The largest chocolate maker in the U.S., maker of Hershey Bars, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, Hershey Kisses and much more, has fallen on difficult times. In 2007, its profits slipped to less than half of the previous year, as its net income was down to $214 million or 93 cents per share, off from its 2006 numbers of $5.59 million net income with EPS at $2.34. Sales in 2007 were $4.9 B, up marginally by only $2.5 million.

The company’s response was to promise a turnaround and let CEO Richard Lenny go, naming David West to take over. The Hershey Foundation, a trust that controls 30% of the stock and most of the voting rights, has been regarded as meddlesome and out of touch with the current business realities, not just by investment observers, but by many Hershey shareholders as well. How could such a wonderful, seemingly foolproof business get this way?

Hershey’s troubles appear to lie at the doorstep of its overly-narrow focus. It is candy and chocolates, and that’s it. Hershey’s competitors, such as Nestle SA (NQB: NSRGY) – the Swiss company which is now the largest food company in the world – rejected narrow focus and instead went for a bold strategy of widely expanding its food and beverage lines. Nestle now has a vast reach deep into many food categories, which is far from the solely candy company that it once was. Privately owned Mars is also a formidable competitor. Kraft (NYSE: KFT), with its line of sweet, chocolate foods like Oreos, is another diversified food company. England’s Cadbury Schweppes (NYSE: CSG) has extensive candies yet is also heavily into the beverage business. Other candy and confection makers are often smaller or premium, high-end companies, and they, too, are taking part of Hershey’s market share away.

Its critics maintain Hershey has only stamped its brand on candies that aren’t really new or unique or exciting, and simply expected these products to sell rather than concentrating on new product development. Even with a $6.5 billion market cap and a renowned brand name in an ever-growing competitive candy-selling climate, more of a responsive strategy is needed. Add to this the fact that the raw material, cacao (from which chocolate is made) has soared in price along with dairy price increases for the sweet milk chocolate makers require, and you have yet another difficulty thrown into the business recipe. Accusations of price fixing also loom. The stock, which has traded between $33 and $56 a share, had fallen to near a five-year low, recently traded in the $37 area.

As early as a year ago, even prior to the economic slowdown, Hershey was experiencing difficulty in a business that should be much more recessionary resistant. 2008 is projected to deliver more of the same poor results, with the promised turnaround not on the horizon. Recently, consensus earnings estimates for 2008 were lowered from approximately $1.85 a share to anywhere in the $1.35-$1.50 range, a downward trend that’s a concern to investors.

Prior to the changeover of CEOs, there had been talk—as there has been for years—that Hershey and Cadbury Schweppes, who have long done some joint ventures, were going to merge, after which Cadbury would sell off its beverage business. This would have created a giant candy conglomerate that would have put Hershey-Cadbury as the dominant–sized player, the largest in the world. Still, the Hershey board seemed to balk at this move – one felt necessary by the investment community to keep Hershey’s prospects growing. More forward-thinking management and some aggressive re-working of its marketing is needed. Of more concern is that Wall Street does not have much confidence in the Hershey trust or board of directors, and without having seen much of anything in the way of turnaround evidence, they aren’t expecting to see anything positive soon.

March 31st CEOcast Weekly Newsletter

Companies featured in the current edition of the newsletter: ACTC, AMAR, CGXP, CORG, CYTR, FMTID, GNBT, HSOA, IASCA, IFSG, MSHI, SEE.V, SMGY, SWVC, TAGS, TKO

In mixed trading last week, indexes diverged as strong gains on Monday where offset by losses later in week. The Dow lost 145 points for the week increasing its year-to-date loss to 7.9%. In similar fashion, the S&P fell 15 points contributing to a 10.4% decline this year. Meanwhile, the technology-oriented Nasdaq index stood its ground with a 3-point weekly gain, trimming its year-to-date loss to 14.7%, and the small-cap-heavy Russell rose 2 points, paring annual losses to 10.8%.

Last week started on a bullish note as JP Morgan Chase raised its bid for troubled Bear Stearns to $10 per share from $2 per share. The market also reacted favorably to existing home sales report for February, which showed the first monthly increase in a year of 2.9%. However as the week progressed, familiar concerns about the economy were able to cast a dark shadow over the stock market as several banks and brokerages witnessed their earnings forecasts getting reduced, while oil prices topped $107 per barrel, and both Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) and JC Penney (NYSE: JCP) issued cautious forecasts.

Monday marks the end to what has been a dismal first quarter for stocks, and in particular micro-cap issues. With equity markets in turmoil, the capital markets have essentially been closed to micro-cap companies for months, stoking fears that small companies will run out of money. While there are few indexes that measure the performance of smaller companies, one such Index is the Russell Microcap Growth Index, which tracks the growth of many small emerging growth issues. The Index is down 17.3% for the year, nearly 7 points below the Russell 2000 and by far the worst-performing Index among the 26 that Russell tracks.

One area that could “cheer” investors, is that investor sentiment levels are at their lowest since 1990 and second lowest since the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII) began tracking such behavior in 1987. On February 7, the eight-week moving average bull/bear spread reached the low of -25% and has since hovered below -20%. In the seven times that has happened since 1990, one-year returns for the S&P 500 have averaged 18%, while gains for small-cap value-oriented stocks have been 33%. History has also shown that when sentiment levels reach such extremes it has marked “bottoms” in the market.

What should investors look for in the upcoming week? Investors will turn their attention to economic data being released for further insight on the current economic turmoil. The March Chicago PMI will be reported at 9:45 on Monday. Tuesday morning Auto and Truck Sales will be announced, followed by the March ISM Index and February Construction Spending at 10am. Shortly after the opening on Wednesday, March ADP Employment Report, February Factory Orders, and Weekly Crude Inventories will be released. Weekly Jobless claims and March ISM Services will be reported on Thursday morning. Friday morning will be active as the March Average Workweek, Hourly Earnings, Nonfarm Payrolls and Unemployment Rate are scheduled to be released at 8:30AM.

This week will feature few prominent earnings reports. Shaw Group (NYSE: SGR) will announce earnings Monday before the market opens. Wednesday will be the busiest day of the week with announcements from Best Buy (NYSE: BBY), CarMax (NYSE: KMX), MasterCard (NYSE: MA), Monsanto (NYSE: MON), Micron (NYSE: MU), and Research In Motion (NASDAQ: RIMM). Mosaic (NYSE: MOS) will announce earnings on Thursday before the bell. Much more earnings activity will follow next week when aluminum giant Alcoa (NYSE: AA) officially kicks off this earnings season with an announcement on April 7.

This order signifies Shreya’s commitment to a successful commercial launch of the product in the Indian market. A research note from Rodman & Renshaw (Market Outperform, price target $6) last week noted that, “The order indicates Shreya’s significant commitment to commercializing Oral-lyn in India, which received regulatory approval to sell the product in India in October 2007.

SPECIAL SITUATION:

Forbes Medi-Tech Inc. (NASDAQ: FMTID) $0.95

The pursuit of healthier lifestyles and the desire to live longer has led to a new attitude towards food. Now, more than ever before, the nutritional contents of food are scrutinized by discerning consumers in an effort to lower cholesterol and to maintain overall health. This has given rise to a new category of food products and dietary supplements referred to as “Nutraceuticals”. Nutraceuticals refer to extracts of foods claimed to have a medicinal effect on human health. The nutraceutical is usually contained in a medicinal format such as a capsule, tablet or powder in a prescribed dose. To address this growing market opportunity, Forbes Medi-Tech Inc., a Vancouver-based life sciences company that has focused on the research, development and commercialization of innovative products for the prevention and treatment of life-threatening diseases, has developed Reducol, a branded, non-GMO, clinically proven ingredient that helps lower LDL cholesterol safely and naturally.

The company’ss strategy and vision is to develop and market a portfolio of products for the benefit of all consumers, from the healthy person desiring consumer lifestyle products that can help reduce the risk of future disease, to medical patients needing therapeutic prescription products for the treatment of an established ailment. At one time, many believed that this company’s compound FM-VP4, a therapeutic for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease through the reduction of cholesterol, could be the next blockbuster drug. Rumor had it that Pfizer was considering making a bid to acquire the company. However, when Phase II results were disappointing, the investment community all but gave up on FMTI, ignoring its nutraceutical business. However, that business today is anticipated to generate 2008 sales of $9.75 – $10.5 million, an increase of up to 20% compared to the range given for 2007 of $8.75 to $9.25 million (company has yet to report 2007 Q4 results).

Forbes’ scientific platform for the ingredient business is based on core sterol technology focused on the extraction of plant sterols from wood pulping by-products The company has recently established a San Diego research facility to further develop early stage pharmaceutical compounds focused on asthma and diabetes

The stock, like many small companies, has suffered mightily over the last six months. Today, it actually trades at a discount to its cash position ($5.7 million as of September 30, 2007), seemingly ignoring its nutraceutical business. If investors were to Value that business at even one times revenue, plus adding in the company’s cash position, would generate a stock price in excess of $2 per share. The company also announced earlier this month that it has secured $3.8 million in non-dilutive financing, which will further create value for investors. It also completed a reverse split in order to maintain its Nasdaq listing, which is why it will trade with a D after its symbol for a few days more. While the stock is unlikely to reach double-digits again as it did when the promise for FM-VP4 was high, at today’s valuation investors seemingly have thrown in the proverbial towel when a thriving business still exists, create the Special Situation opportunity.

China North East Petroleum Holdings Ltd. (CNEH.OB) Releases Increase in Q4 and Fiscal 2007 Revenues as well as Income

Monday, March 31st, 2008

China North East Petroleum Holdings Ltd. (OTCBB: CNEH) today released its financial results for the fourth quarter and 12 months ended Dec. 31, 2007, posting increases across the board. The China-based oil producing company operates four oilfields in northern China.

For fiscal 2007, China North posted a 266 percent increase in sales; revenues for the year were $19.5 million, up from $5.3 million the year prior. The increase is attributed to higher oil production and oil prices. Fourth-quarter revenue rose 539 percent to $7.7 million, up from $1.2 million for the same period of 2006.

“We are extremely pleased with our progress for the fourth quarter and 2007 fiscal year. We finished the year operating 153 wells in four oilfields in the Jilin province,” Hongjun Wang, president of the company stated in the press release. “The rising price of oil throughout 2007 generated more cash for our business allowing us to increase the total number of wells in production from 90 at the beginning of 2007 to 153 at the end of the year. We also benefited from the implementation of water injection technologies that allowed us to maximize oil extraction at our existing wells.”

Net income for the 12 months of 2007 was reported at $5.1 million, up 439 percent from $952,000 the year before. Net income for the fourth quarter was $2.1 million, a 323 percent increase from $495,000 for the same period of 2006.

“We are very encouraged with our ability to further grow our revenue and profit in 2008. Our company enjoys a strong partnership with a major oil company, and the four oilfields in which we currently operate are proven oil bearing areas with strong reserves. CNEH has a compelling business model that is highly scalable, has minimal reserve risk, no sales costs, and generates strong cash flow. We see the opportunity to expand our operations through increased oil production, greater economies of scale and acquisition opportunities. We are building on our momentum over the last twelve months and believe that 2008 will be a monumental year for our business,” Wang stated.

Angstrom Technologies Corp. (AGMS.OB) Announces the Signing of a Definitive Agreement

Monday, March 31st, 2008

Angstrom Technologies Corp. announced this afternoon that it has signed a definitive agreement that outlines the merger of its wholly owned subsidiary, Angstrom Acquisition Corp., with Angstrom Microsystems Inc. (AMI). Once the merger is completed, Angstrom Technologies Corp. plans to change its name to Angstrom Microsystems Corp. in order to accurately reflect its new business direction.

Angstrom Microsystems is a green computing solutions company that is focused on providing blade servers and workstations specifically designed for the energy-demanding datacenter sector. The company also provides software that dramatically reduces the number of machines required to complete a given task. By combining this technology with state-of-the-art cooling techniques, the company significantly reduces energy consumption while preserving high performance computing.

Terms and conditions to be met prior to the closing of the merger include: “(i) AMI obtaining the requisite shareholder approval; (ii) AMI delivering all financial statements required to consummate the merger; (iii) the Company having appointed nominees of AMI and the Company’s President to the board of directors; (iv) the parties entering into certain employment agreements with management of AMI; (v) the principals of AMI licensing certain patents of AMI to the Company; and (vi) the Company adopting a stock incentive option plan for employees and consultants.”

Angstrom Technologies Corp. CEO Alpha Pang stated, “I am excited in the new direction our Company is expected to take with this merger. With the completion of the Merger we expect to be able to move the Company forward in a positive direction to help create shareholder value. The server market alone is a several-billion-dollar industry; the fact that Angstrom Microsystems Inc., addresses a bourgeoning problem within this industry offers even more value and opportunity to our company.”

“I am therefore happy and prepare to pass the reins on to Angstrom Microsystems Inc.’s founder Mr. Lalit Jain, as the new CEO of Angstrom Technologies Corp. to lead Angstrom into a new future once the merger is completed. Mr. Jain is an alumnus of MIT and brings with him numerous years of experience in this sector, as well as over $50 million in revenues since Angstrom Microsystems Inc.’s inception,” he continued.

Lalit Jain, CEO of Angstrom Microsystems Inc, responded, “I am excited by this opportunity to lead this company and hope to enhance shareholder value by adding Angstrom’s powerful energy-saving solutions. With energy prices soaring to record levels and energy consumption surging throughout the world, Angstrom reduces energy usage in the datacenter to do more with less. Going green used to mean spending more of your hard earned ‘green.’ However, using Angstrom solutions is an environmentally-conscious way to save your ‘green’ from day one!”

SARS Corporation (SARO.OB) Increases 2008 Sales Projection to $16 Million

Monday, March 31st, 2008

In December of last year, SARS Corp acquired the UtilityEye™ from Andronics, Ltd. This breakthrough technology remotely monitors propane and butane gas tank levels via satellite. The UtilityEye LPG system can monitor tanks both above and below ground. It is ideal for commercial and residential tanks and identifies fuel levels as well as sends utility notifications when a tank is filled and/or transmits alarms when fuel levels drop to a predetermined level.

After visiting some of the world’s largest propane suppliers, SARS has increased its projected 2008 sales of its UtilityEye™ system to $16 million, which amounts to delivering a total of 25,000 monitoring units. The company is hoping to deliver the additional units to key customers during the summer months when the weather is more advantageous for installations.

The company is excited about delivering the UtilityEye to the industry as stated by Clayton Shelver, CEO of SARS, “Our meetings with the world’s major propane suppliers have demonstrated a great opportunity to leverage SARS® UtilityEye two-way data solutions for monitoring and managing remote assets, specifically vehicles and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) tanks in Europe, North America and South America.”

He also added, “The application of this technology has generated worldwide interest. The ability to remotely measure LPG levels in propane tanks can reduce delivery costs significantly. In many cases the return-on-investment can be less than 18 months.”

SARS’ line of services also includes the SARS Tracpoint®, a solution that uses General Packet Radio Service and satellite technologies to track and monitor the movement and location of vehicles.

Lebed.biz Featured Company: South Texas Oil Company, Inc. (STXX) Signs Gas Agreement and Readies Existing Oil Wells for Cash Flow

Monday, March 31st, 2008

It may be dogged determination or just exceptional planning with a dash of luck, but some companies seem to be in the right place at the right time. When some pull up stakes in search of richer pastures, others merely watch and laugh as they slog through the dust. Finally, when the winds start blowing from another direction, those who plan and wait find reason to smile.

This is clearly the case with South Texas Oil Company Inc., an oil and natural gas acquisition, development and exploration company working to take advantage of oil and gas properties that others have abandoned for those green pastures. The company only works with proven oil and gas fields, and currently holds leases totaling 25,000+ acres in Texas and Colorado.

As oil and gas prices continue to hover near record prices, the company appears ready to take advantage of its existing properties. A tentative agreement to sell certain drilling equipment assets has been terminated in favor of potential opportunities for the equipment. Additionally, new gas agreements have been put in place that will begin generating new revenues in the second half of 2008. Although both oil and gas show exceptional return potential, the gas component of the company’s holdings may actually be the more near term revenue generator as the company works to ramp existing oil wells left by others.

It seems that the company’s most recent gas agreement, with no minimums and initial transmission shipments of 150 thousand/cfd, will be an integral portion of the company’s future growth plans. Its transmission and infrastructure agreement for this project calls for infrastructure improvements as capacity shipments increase – after an initial improvement phase – so a longer term future does appear likely.

Oil opportunities, however, are expected to be no small contributor to the company’s anticipated near term revenue growth. The State of Texas has recently revised its drilling regulations to double the concentration of potential wells on existing leases. In the past, a company could drill only one well per 20 acres, but now it may drill one well per 10 acres.

In-fill drilling, as South Texas Oil Company calls it, will provide the largest growth opportunity for the company on its Texas leases. In a certain sense, one might say that this regulation change has effectively doubled the company’s holdings in Texas. Indeed, the company appears to have been in the right place, at the right time, with leases in hand and equipment ready to produce.

StockGuru Blog: Hybrid Technologies (HYBR) – $2.20 for 90 Miles

Monday, March 31st, 2008

New Generation Technology Vehicles

Hybrid Technologies, Inc., (OTCBB: HYBR) is a development stage technology company that is focusing its resources and efforts on the development and marketing of lithium-powered vehicles and products, as well as on commercial and residential properties. By using its proprietary advanced lithium management and battery balancing system, HYBR converts gas-emission vehicles to electric power. The Company presently markets lithium ion battery-powered Chrysler PT Cruisers, Mini Coopers, Chrysler Crossfires, and Mercedes’ Smart Cars and has recently introduced the LiV™ series, its own line of all-electric lithium ion battery-powered vehicles. HYBR offers telecommunications services to business and residential customers utilizing VoIP technology through its subsidiary, Zingo, Inc. The immediate focus is Canada, Central and Latin America, Europe and developed countries in Asia, allowing those destinations to have access to superior multilevel platforms that provide highly reliable and advanced telecommunications services. Hybrid Technologies was incorporated in 2000 and was formerly known as Whistler Investments, Inc. In 2005, it changed its name to Hybrid Technologies, Inc. Hybrid Technologies is based in Las Vegas, Nevada.

$2.20 for 90 Miles

Hybrid Technologies is capable of fitting almost any vehicle with a lithium-powered engine. Everything from scooters, bicycles, mopeds and motorcycles, to boats, cars, and even lawnmowers can be adapted to utilize this portable electric power source that produces virtually no emissions. Recently, the company completed a project in conjunction with Volkswagen’s Electronic Research Laboratory in Palo Alto, CA to retrofit a 1964 Deluxe Microbus with an all-electric drive engine powered by lithium polymer batteries.

HYBR already offers to the public a Smart Car and all-electric conversions of the Chrysler Crossfire, Mini Cooper and PT Cruiser with this technology, an ATV, as well as the LiV™ Series, its own line of zero-emission, noise free vehicles.

The LiV™ Series was recently introduced at the March New York International Auto Show — six lithium-ion-powered vehicles, including a $39,500 electric version of the Toyota Yaris hatchback called the LiV™ Wise and a 105 horsepower carbon-fiber-bodied sports car called the LiV™ Rush. The company already offers lithium-ion-powered versions of the Mini Cooper (dubbed the LiV™ Flash, and priced at $57,500), the Smart ForTwo (the LiV™ Dash; $43,500), and the Chrysler PT Cruiser (the LiV™ Surge; $55,000). Performance-wise, all of Hybrid’s conversions can go on one electric plug charge cycle for 100 miles or so and top out somewhere between 70 and 90 mph, with the LiV™ Rush, hitting 120 mph.

Besides passenger vehicles, Hybrid Technologies also sells the LiV™ RYDER chopper, a chopper-style motorcycles that can go as fast as 74 miles per hour. The chopper features a monster 300 rear tire for the dedicated motorcyclist seeking the ultimate riding experience. Also at the New York Show was the Hybrid Tech lithium-powered military vehicle, the LiV™ REAPER, mounted with a 50-calibre gun and grenade launcher, and an all-terrain vehicle, the LiV™ BULLDOG ATV. Hybrid Tech plans to offer a division of its Company for production of the custom-designed electric wheelchairs. LiV™ FREE wheelchair, not be eclipsed by the Moped-like and attractive LiV™ CRUZ bicycle.

As of mid-2007, HYBR was the only innovative company selling consumer ready electric-powered vehicles – and distribution licenses – from its website (www.hybridtechnologies.com).

It’s In The Battery

HYBR is involved in researching and developing the portable lithium battery power pack technology to model different cathode structures and optimize process parameters to obtain a single phase and pure material in industrial scale. In February it made an important announcement on a successful move toward development of a new cathode material that will be incorporated to a Lithium Ion Polymer Battery. The company’s new Lithium Ion Polymer battery significantly increases operating voltage range and energy density. The new cathode material comprising the “Superlattice Structure” allows electric vehicles to be driven over 200 miles compared to the current 120 to 140 mile range. The pure material is produced in-house and is synthesized at an industrial scale.

Dr. Surajit Sengupta, Director of Battery R&D at Hybrid Technologies, states “our objective is to create the Next Generation of lithium ion polymer battery that is environmentally non-toxic, safe, less expensive and more powerful.”

The Company’s advanced battery technology offers some of the industry’s fastest charger systems. The high density and lightweight lithium-ion batteries can be charged by simply plugging them into a common household electrical outlet. Deemed the Advanced Drive System Technology, The lithium power system consists of an integrated network of high performance components that is adaptable to multiple energy sources and is capable of powering a wide variety of end-user product applications.

Further and Future Price Cuts

February 11, 2008 Hybrid Tech announced substantial price reductions on the Smart Car, Mini Cooper, and PT Cruiser. In contrast to the continual increase in gas prices, the reduction in lithium ion battery costs allow HYBR to pass savings along to their customers. With fuel prices at record high levels and the global focus moving rapidly towards addressing pollution, the needs for sustainable, zero emission energy and more cost savings are ever more in demand. The future for lithium production speaks favorable in terms of availability and lower costs. Management at HYBR foresees the lithium industry as one of the fastest growing segments within the global economy.

A World Model

The all-lithium vehicles from HYBR are quickly gaining Auto Industry and consumer notice. The company is pleased with its feature episode in the award winning History Channel series Modern Marvels showing several of its models. A writer from the popular www.jalopnik.com site attending the recent New York International Auto show exclaimed, “I hopped into the Hybrid Technologies Lithium Powered Super Car with the guy who built it. There was no top, so I enjoyed the welcome good weather–at last!–in NYC. The car itself was a hoot to drive!” The HYBR produced Mini Cooper has gained massive international media attention from outlets such as CNN, Forbes, Popular Mechanics, and Wired magazine.

Last year, the Government of Canada launched the new “ecoTECHNOLOGY for Vehicles Program”. The program will thoroughly test an array of light-duty vehicles, and then publish their safety and environmental performances. The Canadian Ministry of Transportation purchased models of the Smart Car and PT Cruiser, expanding Hybrid’s brand recognition, and providing Canadians with valuable information on HYBR’s vehicles.

Hybrid has partnered with ALITALIA for shipment to ITALY and is actively selecting other partnerships to distribute its PT cruiser, Mini Cooper and Smart car models.

In a study produced last year by the Electric Power Research Institute found, it was shown that widespread adoption of plug-ins in the United States could reduce greenhouse emissions in 2050 by more than 450 million metric tons a year, the output of 82.5 million cars. The United States produces so much electricity, “Even if everyone went out and bought a plug-in hybrid,” the institute’s Mark Duvall said, “it is extraordinarily unlikely that we’ll ever significantly tax the system.”

Hybrid Technologies is leading in the development and marketing of lithium-powered products worldwide. With its proven technology, The Company is now poised to setup a Dealer/Distributor network in North America and license its’ technology to other automotive manufacturers.
