HII Technologies, Inc. (HIIT) Adds High Volume Frac Water Handling Capability with Closure of AES Acquisition

Friday, September 28th, 2012

HII Technologies, the Houston-based oilfield services firm with over a decade in manufacturing and service for E&P power and water management, reported wrapping the milestone AES acquisition today, adding key, high-volume fracking water infrastructure to the company’s bottom line.

AES has an established presence in the industry doing high volume water transfer via a sophisticated array of no-leak mobile piping solutions, praised not only for their performance metrics in hydraulic fracturing work, but also for their ability to ensure that environmental stewardship targets are met with ease. AES has built up a sizeable network of E&P clients in the Texas and Oklahoma region, with nationally recognized customers engaged in the burgeoning hydrocarbon recovery industry.

HIIT pretty much dumped their wholly-owned valve design and production subsidiary, KMHVC (Hemiwedge Valve Corp.) back in early 2011, but has built up the kind of lensing capability needed to produce an incredibly powerful, focused beam through the acquisition of such rich oilfield service capacity as that represented by today’s announcement. AES has a good five decades of boots on the ground in the industry doing complex, customized systems for oil and gas operators, with broad proficiencies in everything from drilling water wells, to implementing ad hoc water circuits that can handle intricate high-capacity water transferring requirements.

With some 10 miles of 10-inch aluminum, leak-proof, and cam lock connection-based piping in inventory, which they install with complete ancillary instrumentation, valves, and vents, AES can do big, temporary, on-site water transfer jobs without breaking a sweat. AES has earned its reputation by working directly with client frac engineers to design custom systems, providing everything from drilling site design and preparation, to roadways, pits, and the linings for containment/disposal facilities. A fleet of distribution manifold trailers, as well as top of the line high volume Cornell pumps (175 HP Duetz turbo engines capable of 80 BPM and 325 HP John Deeres capable of 100 BPM), all with exemplary leakage-eliminating valve designs, stands ready to be deployed for clientele. AES even has the 12-foot and 20-foot road crossings needed to do safe, convenient, low-profile crossings for driveways and roads.

HIIT will look to file an 8-K on the deal with the SEC directly and will also file an amendment to its own current report that includes the audited financials for AES by Dec 11, with full faith and confidence that the deal will be accretive to EPS.

CEO of HIIT, Matt Flemming, noted the rapid turnaround on the acquisition, having filed the LOI last month and closing the deal yesterday. Flemming underscored the $4M initial revenue guidance for the coming 12 months from AES and spoke warmly to shareholders about the advantages of the turn-key water handling capabilities for sector operators. It is an extremely valid point, especially considering the spike in demand for such high volume water handling solutions, which stem out of the constantly innovative fracking work being done in domestic hydrocarbons.

President of AES, Brent Mulliniks, P.E., affirmed his colleagues sentiments about the organic growth potential of the portfolio in today’s market, noting in particular how more recent developments in multi-stage fracking and horizontal drilling have pushed the envelope for water volumes required. Mulliniks ensured investors and markets that together AES and HIIT would be redoubling their efforts to expand the water supply services portfolio available to clients, with features like flow-back water recycling technology taking developmental precedent.

International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO) to Participate in Upcoming Investor Conference

Friday, September 28th, 2012

California-based International Stem Cell Corp. announced that Dr. Simon Craw, the company’s Executive Vice President of Business Development, will attend and present at the SeeThru Equity Fall Smallcap & Microcap Conference, to be held at the Cornell Club in midtown Manhattan, New York, on Tuesday, October 2, 2012.

International Stem Cell is a biotechnology company focused on therapeutic and research products. The company has developed a powerful new stem cell technology called parthenogenesis that promises to advance the field of regenerative medicine by addressing the problem of immune-rejection.

Risk of rejection for stem cell therapeutics is proportional to the degree of difference between the immune system proteins present on the donated cells and the immune system proteins present on the cells of the recipient. The human leukocyte antigen (HLA) system is the term used for antigens important for transplantation. Normally donor tissue is screened for these immune system proteins (antigens) in order to determine the degree of compatibility with the recipient.

Parthenogenetic stem cells are pluripotent human stem cells that come from unfertilized oocytes (eggs). Because of the way they are generated, parthenogenetic stem cells have a duplicate set of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) genes, which greatly reduces the possibility of the derived cells being rejected by an individual’s immune system, meaning that a single cell line can be suitable for the treatment of millions of individuals. As such, a small number of cell lines could be sufficient to provide “immune matched” cells to a significant percentage of the world’s population. ISC has already created the first parthenogenetic stem cell line that can be a source of therapeutic cells for hundreds of millions of individuals of different genders, ages, and racial backgrounds, with minimal immune rejection after transplantation.

The company also offers specialized cells and growth media for therapeutic research worldwide through its subsidiary Lifeline Cell Technology, in addition to stem cell-based skin care products through its subsidiary Lifeline Skin Care.

InspireMD, Inc. (NSPR) to Present Positive MASTER Trial Results at TCT Scientific Symposium

Friday, September 28th, 2012

Medical device company InspireMD is slated to present the initial results of its 433-patient randomized MASTER trial later this month at the 24th Annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium in Miami, Fla.

On October 24, Gregg W. Stone, MD, will highlight the company’s MGuard™ embolic protection stent platform technology and its MASTER (MGuard forAcute ST Elevation Reperfusion) study, which demonstrated a positive outcome in patients suffering heart attacks as compared to commercially approved bare metal or drug-eluting stents.

CE Mark-approved MGuard™ Embolic Protection Stent is a coronary stent integrated with a proprietary Micronet technology, which is designed to hold plaque and thrombus in place against the wall of the blocked artery. This wedge prevents debris from falling into the bloodstream, which could cause a potentially fatal downstream blockage.

In eleven previous single arm studies and one 40-patient physician-sponsored randomized trial, the MGuard™ embolic protection stent was effective in restoring blood flow.

“The TCT conference is one of the world’s premier events for new data and developments in interventional cardiology,” Robert Ratini, InspireMD’s vice president of sales and marketing stated in the press release. “We are honored that the committee found the MASTER trial important enough for inclusion in the prestigious Late Breaking Clinical Trials session. We are hopeful this will broaden clinical awareness and adoption of our MGuard Embolic Protection Stent for the benefit of our customer physicians and their patients.”

ERHC Energy, Inc. (ERHE) Solidifies Oil and Gas Development Profile in Republics of Kenya and Chad

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

ERHC Energy, the publicly traded, Houston-based independent oil and gas firm with several highly valuable assets in Sub-Saharan Africa, offered markets an update today on the company’s planned exploration work programs for their operations in Kenya and Chad.

This story breaks amid a fervor of fund raising by the company to facilitate an increasingly aggressive exploration campaign across East, Central, and West Africa. Immediate goals of the current activity in Kenya and Chad will be to identify the lead targets so that a comprehensive drilling package can be put together. Pending success with the geological, geophysical, and subsequent analytical work being done on the properties, as well as the availability of certain financing requirements, the company is looking to go full-bore in both countries as soon as possible to meet the production sharing contract drilling commitment minimums of one well each (with options to drill more during the terms of the contracts).

The company will look to finance via equity issuance and appropriate debt instruments, as well as via arrangements currently being made through potential partner talks over the Chad/Kenya interests. Collectively the company has put together a beautiful footprint on the continent and some 100% WI opportunities expected to close with local government officials before the end of the year in the Sao Tome and Principe Exclusive Economic Zone (blocks 4 and 11, option to acquire as much as 15% in two more blocks), as well as some working interests held in the Nigeria-Sao Tome and Principe Joint Development Zone (blocks 2-6 and 9).

The company looks to get started in Kenya by the end of this year in the Lotikipi plain at block 11A, where a strong in-trend relationship exists to Southern Sudan’s established Abu Gabra Rift basins, suggesting an extremely positive oil and gas abundance correlation. This massive (63 miles across) depression will be explored over an initial two year period, with the environmental impact assessment work and analytical data aggregation taking top priority. ERHC has planned full tensor gravity surveying by air, accompanied by 2D seismic and geological field studies, in order to fully resolve the structural portrait of key targets and tectonic horizons for the region. Follow up 3D seismic work may become necessary to better define resources identified during analytical integration and mapping of the other data sets, a potential outcome for which the company is currently preparing.

A similar approach in Chad is slated to begin in early 2013, with the 100% interest in Southern Chad at BDS 2008 taking priority, again a target which is on-trend with a solid lead vector, in this case the successful Doba Basin oilfield (average of 122.5k bopd in 2010). Technical assessments by the operator of an analogous, adjacent block, upon close scrutiny by ERHC, offers abundant promise of at least three prospects with a reasonable chance of success on the company’s blocks. ERHC is projecting a combined mean potential as high as 63M boe, with a whopping 332M boe potential upside. The same discrete analysis is being performed here as in Kenya, with existing well logs thrown into the complex array of data sets that will be aggregated for resource mapping purposes, and the company stands again at the ready to execute with full 3D seismic work consequent upon the need to further delineate identified resources/structures. Secondary targets will be the Manga and Chari-Ouest Block 3, which are also adjacent to the prolific Doba Basin oilfield.

With a serious footprint on the continent and in the Gulf of Guinea, ERHC Energy is rapidly making a name for itself within the industry and investors will be keen to stay abreast of developments as the company’s financing/development efforts progress.

Reef Resources Ltd. (REE.V) is “One to Watch”

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Reef Resources has a clear growth strategy focused on the exceptional price metrics of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) through injected natural gas, a proven technology within the global industry currently being exploited by REE in advanced form to great effect at their primary interests in Southern Ontario.

The company currently holds a very healthy 71.4% WI on some 1,800-acres of development land in Lambton County as its primary site accessing the Ausable pinnacle reef (312-acre footprint alone). A quantifiable resource play, identified out of a massive proprietary 23.5k-acre 3D seismic database on the Ontario Basin acquired along with the property in 2003, has led to geophysical and petrophysical driven discovery of an estimated 8.9M barrels of oil and natural gas (Stock Tank Original Oil In Place; Nutech Energy Alliance, Houston, Texas). The entire region is renowned for patch/barrier reef type complexes rich in Silurian age hydrocarbons and a number of support targets in the main Guelph oil/NGL formation offer compelling longer term benefits for the natural gas recycling EOR program.

By jacking up the reservoir pressure through injecting natural gas, production and recovery values are significantly increased as the reef is energized, granting not only stable output rates due to stabilized pressurization, but also a three-fold to six-fold jump in overall output potential. The injected gas is then recycled through the formation, comingling with natural gas liquids (NGLs) in a process which also offers build up of exceptional resource structure mapping data over time. The resulting liquid-saturated gas that comes out as up pipe production is then reprocessed via onsite refrigeration units, resulting in saleable propane, ethane, and condensates, with the remaining dry gas pumped back into the reef.

With gas storage rights that could even be sold in the future (once depleted, estimated storage capacity of three billion cubic feet), contributing to both the EOR implementation and the company’s ability to ride seasonal price/demand movements, the company’s Southern Ontario interests represent a tangible growth vector that investors should compare to similar EOR schemes in Western Canada which yielded 80% resource recovery rates, resulting in attractive shareholder ROI. Initial production levels and solid EOR reservoir communication has essentially validated the company’s Q1/Q2 2013 goal of around 550 or more barrels per day, with the Airport Reef and three to four additional Silurian complex reefs (discovered within company-owned 3d seismic database) under the company’s belt, as well as another three to six reefs in the vicinity identified as prime acquisition candidates.

The upper Guelph has been isolated via the Ausable #1 well and injection for the EOR program is proceeding apace of expectations. Current production on Ausable #1 and #5 shows minimal recycle volumes of around 230 mcf per day and current production is roughly 13 bbls per day (total liquids potential of 275 boed computed based on current gas cycling rate), while the #2 and #4 (which was successfully worked over) are slated to be brought on stream in short order alongside the Airport Reef infrastructure (South Airport #1 was completed in the upper Guelph and the suspended Ausable #3 is slated for horizontal re-entry). Current targets include some 236 feet of net pay in the Ausable reef wells (roughly 170 feet of which is in the Guelph, with the remainder in the A2 gas formation) and another 394 feet of net pay total between the North (discovery) and South (standing gas well) Airport #1 wells. Considering the company’s plan to pump 5M mcf per day through relevant structures, the 550 boed target for early 2013 looks good and the Airport well tie-in, along with potential acquisitions or outright purchases from the local utility, should feed the EOR program’s natural gas needs handedly.

Management intends to develop the regional strategy around this considerable stratigraphic discovery and its associated reefs. The company raised some $1.9M amid the choppy economic waters of 2011 and soldiered ahead with infield well pipeline development, as well as major facility upgrades, to get ready for moving through planned development phases. The company even recently added veteran industry executive’s Martin Sandell and Gene Moody to the Board of Directors in order to handle the sheer volume of complex work related to developing the regional strategy. Development drilling of offsetting lands should help the company grow towards its year-end 2014 goal of becoming a 3k boed producer, relying heavily on a mastery of EOR methods.

We are talking finding and development costs of only around $5.00 per barrel and an overall net present value of around $54M on some $6.7M in investments, set against a nice ($2.5M market cap) share structure backdrop, where almost 1/4th of the outstanding 55M shares are owned by company insiders. A strong position established in the Guelph formation, a strong regionally-minded, EOR-driven exploitation strategy for the Ontario basin, and ample long-term (20.5-year reserve life index) upside all combine in Reef Resources to make for an appealing investment opportunity, even before factoring in the true potential of the company’s current footprint (indicated in part by off reef potential seen in the North Airport results).

At even a 70% recovery rate we are looking at roughly 6.2M barrels of recoverable reserves from the ongoing EOR program and Reef has an active portfolio of other domestic oil and gas acquisition opportunities in the hopper as well, with the lead candidate being a huge medium oil (18 API) play down in South Texas, kicked up through internal expertise in the industry.

Wave Systems Corp. (WAVX) Enters ARM TrsutZone Ready Program

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Wave Systems, a foremost expert on the growing trend of incorporating data protection directly into endpoint computing platforms, announced that it has joined the ARM TrustZone® Ready Enablement Program. The goal of the program is to deliver support and infrastructure for the implementation of enterprise security capabilities in mobile devices. This partnership means that Wave has united with other industry leaders in helping chip manufacturers design and roll out new industry standard security capabilities within ARM’s TrustZone architecture to enable full cross-platform interoperability across PCs, tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices.

ARM, the leading semiconductor IP supplier worldwide, developed TrustZone Technology as a System-on-Chip security concept that features a hardware-isolated space for a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE). Mobile services can be deployed with enhanced security and convenience after core security services, such as cryptography, storage, and user interfaces, have been integrated.

ARM’s TrustZone Ready enablement program has the primary objective of assisting chip and device manufacturers in designing robust, industry-certified security architecture into their products that will address the demands of service providers seeking to deploy secure services on secured platforms. Companies that have security blanketed across their entire system will significantly benefit from the cohesive set of design blueprints, market requirements, and checklists aligned with industry standards inherent to the program.

“Smart phones, tablets and other devices are essential for today’s enterprise, and require access to sensitive applications and data. While these devices have excellent security for the mobile operator’s services, they lack basic security for use within an enterprise network,” commented Steven Sprague, Wave’s CEO. “ARM, with the TrustZone Ready Program, is taking the lead in making sure that standards-based security implemented in the TrustZone Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) is integrated into chipsets for mobile devices. Wave is committed to sharing its expertise in Trusted Platform Module (TPM) implementations, application development and trust infrastructure support.”

“Wave’s infrastructure for managing TPM and TPM-mobile-enabled devices will allow enterprise users to exploit the full capabilities of Trusted Computing Group standards across multiple device types,” added Jon Geater, Director of Technology for ARM Secure Services Division and Board Representative of ARM at GlobalPlatform. “ARM welcomes Wave into the TrustZone Ready Program as a valuable partner that will bring secure enterprise services to TrustZone secured devices running GlobalPlatform Trusted Execution Environments.”

SmallCapVoice: Omega Commercial Finance Corp. (OCFN) Implements $1BB Capital Markets Strategy

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

Omega Commercial Finance Corporation has authorized the facilitation of a proven capital markets strategy available to public companies that will structure its own internal version of a credit facility. For compliance considerations, limited information can be disclosed however this strategy will be promoted to designated institutional investors and facilitated by licensed financial services firms, yet to be determined.

Management’s motivation behind this proven capital markets strategy is to generate up to $1-billion in potential lending proceeds for its subsidiary lending companies. This established capital markets strategy in many ways should create an imminent competitive advantage over other small-cap finance companies and private lenders that primarily compete in originating, investing, acquiring, and managing senior-performing commercial real estate mortgage loans, CMBS’s, CRE Corporate-debt, and other commercial real estate debt investments in the U.S. and globally.

President, Jon S. Cummings IV stated, “With institutional investors seeking yield coupled with the US Treasury benchmarks trading at record lows and the recent initiation of QE3, we think yields are going to remain at these low levels for the foreseeable future. Hence, Omega has created a competitive strategy specifically by offering an attractive risk-adjusted premium, which could make this eye-catching to Yield-Hungry participants.” More importantly and operationally, OCFN has formulated strong back-office support teams for this potential massive inflow of capital.

TNI BioTech, Inc. (TNIB) Enters Agreement to Open an Oncology & Infectious Disease Clinic at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

Earlier today, Mrs. Joyce Banda, the President of the Republic of Malawi, announced that an agreement has been signed to open an outpatient’s clinic at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital for the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases with US-based biotech firms TNI BioTech (TNIB) and GB Oncology & Imaging Group LLC (GBOIG).

Chronic infectious diseases are estimated to cause more than 20 percent of all cancers in the world, including liver, cervical, and gastric malignancies. Infection-related cancers are more frequent and often more severe in people infected with HIV. Cancer patient survival rates in Malawi are abysmal due to lack of access to early diagnosis and treatment.

President Banda is working to reverse this problem by signing an agreement with TNIB and GBOIG to open an outpatient clinic for the treatment of cancer, HIV/AIDS, and infectious diseases at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital within the coming months. At the clinic TNIB and GBOIG will deliver both conventional and alternative therapies; including safer, more effective cancer therapies, new-targeted drug therapies, and minimally invasive surgical alternatives.

The new facility for outpatient cancer care, education, and research will allow TNIB and GBOIG to:

• Provide first-rate cancer care in Malawi, a country of about 16 million citizens suffering from one of the highest cancer rates in the world, in order to improve survival rates for most common cancers under the available therapies from 10 percent to 90 percent, saving an estimated 5,000 lives each year.
• Study the interaction between infections and cancer by promoting cutting-edge research aimed at pathophysiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of infection-related cancers in Africa.
• Improve the quality of medical education in oncology and increase the number of cancer specialists in Malawi.

The Government of Malawi will make space available in the Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital where TNIB and GBOIG will retrofit the facility and start the operation of an outpatient oncology and infectious disease clinic. This first phase will begin in November of 2012 with the anticipation of the clinic being operational by March of 2013. This clinic will include a CT Scan, an X-Ray Room, a 10 chair infusion chemo-therapy and immune rehabilitating therapy clinic, a sterile room, all related medical supplies, an electronic medical record system, and other medical services. In an effort to provide treatment immediately, the companies will initiate the treatment of 10,000 women and children a day for cancer, HIV/AIDS, and infectious diseases using IRT-103 LDN, and then expand to 250,000-500,000 patients over time. The next phase is focused on adding the necessary Radiation Oncology treatments. The radiation department will be managed by an experienced radiation oncology team and will provide the most advanced technology they can offer to provide the highest chance for healing and recovery; the aim is to have Phase II within 12 months.

Dr. Gloria Herndon, President & Managing Member of GBOIG stated, “Though cultural change is achieved very slowly, we strongly believe that IRT-103 (LDN) can serve to literally save millions of lives within a relatively short time. We believe this is an important step forward as there is an urgent need in Malawi for readily available, safe and effective treatments that can hopefully increase the life span and improve the quality of life for millions of cancer and HIV/AIDS infected patients.”

“Having a healthy population is essential for the fabric and stability of the nation. It is imperative to provide care to the people of Malawi in need of care,” said President Banda. “It’s also the right thing to do. There can be no greater mandate in cancer treatment and research than to wage the fight by doing the right thing.”

First Titan Corp. (FTTN) Puts First Alabama Well Into Production at 400 Barrels Per Day, Well Over Expectations

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

First Titan, the oil and gas exploration and development firm that owns an array of promising domestic interests in Texas and Louisiana, reported putting the company’s first well (in which FTTN owns a working interest) into production today over in Alabama’s Little Cedar Creek Field, Conecuh County, at rates exceeding initial expectations.

This new oil well is currently pumping out an average of 400 bbls and 350 MCF per day, the maximum legal limit allowed by the state government per well and the tube pressure looks very solid at around 440 psi on 16/64ths choke. This is great news for FTTN and its wholly-owned operating subsidiary, First Titan Energy, LLC, which is firmly committed to developing oil and gas both in the domestic and global markets.

The Little Cedar Creek Field is Alabama’s biggest producing field and the new well sits in the heart of a whole series of successful nearby wells. The extremely positive geological and production data flowing out of these surrounding wells, like the north and northwest offsets run by discoverer of the Little Cedar Creek Field, Pruet Production Co. (formerly Midroc), were among the datasets looked at when projecting the production potential of the new well. The diagonal offset to the northwest operated by Pruet tested 392 bbls/day, the east offset operated by Sklar is currently flowing at 215 bbls/day, and the southeast offset, also operated by Sklar, is currently flowing at 160 bbls/day on pump.

CEO of FTTN, Robert Federowicz, spoke of the great expectations for the well based on localized output data and positive geology, underscoring how the current flow data and production values have exceeded all initial expectations, and affirmed that the company can honestly say they have “struck black gold.” Federowicz also looked forward with comments about capitalizing on this success in Alabama by jump-starting the company’s other domestic projects.

With five working interests in promising domestic oil wells (South Lake Charles Prospect, LA; Big Canyon Prospect, West TX; Conecuh County Prospect, AL; Hughes County prospect, OK; and Breaux prospect, Logan County, OK), FTTN and shareholders are in an enviable production/development position for a company of this size. Investors will be keen to hear more out of Alabama as well moving forward, considering the presence of two more possibly productive zones just above the producing zone tapped by the new well, both of which look even better than the current zone. The NW/4 quarter well should be higher in the structure and this should also make the lower zone able to produce at an increased rate (if that lobe is indeed present in the projected well bore, as well as being safely off the known water level).

With such great news coming out of just one of the several working interest positions in prospective wells acquired by the company in the last year, and current reserve estimates at the Conecuh County operation clocking in at around 400-800k barrels of oil, FTTN shareholders have every reason to be proud of management’s aggressiveness. Indeed, FTTN has made a name for itself seeking to partner with energy developers who embrace cutting-edge technology, unconventional resources, and the kind of cleaner development/production methods needed to ensure proper environmental stewardship. The company is making big strides for its size these days and FTTN is rapidly earning its spurs as the company grows into a larger role within an industry dominated by majors like Chesapeake and Anadarko.

Loans4Less.com, Inc. (LFLS) Offers Guidance, Options in a Recovering Housing Market

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

Despite concerns over the Federal Reserve’s Sept. 13 announcement that it would be launching a third round of quantitative easing, commonly labeled QE3, by buying $40 billion of mortgage-backed securities each month for an indefinite period of time, recent positive developments have folks hopeful in the housing market. Companies like Loans4Less.com continue successfully aiding would-be homebuyers and homeowners who are seeking to refinance their homes, by matching them with suitable mortgage lenders.

The National Association of Realtors recently reported that homebuilders are experiencing some of the best sales levels they’ve seen since 2006 – also reporting that builder confidence is at its highest since the housing crisis took hold and that builders expect the housing recovery to further strengthen within the next six months. The U.S. Department of Commerce reports that August 2012 building permits were up 24.5 percent from 2011 and that housing starts increased 29.1 percent in July 2012 over the previous year. Overall home construction has improved nearly 60 percent since April 2009, the National Association of Realtors reports. Though the housing market is by no means out of the woods just yet, these indicators show the best signs of market recovery in six years.

Consumers looking to take advantage of the slowly but steadily improving conditions, as well as the continuing record-low mortgage interest rates (which QE3 has been aimed at pushing even lower over time), have many options available to them, including a competitive wholesale lending program offered through Loans4Less.

An online mortgage broker maintaining an A+ TrustLink rating with the Better Business Bureau, Loans4Less.com offers competitive rates, terms and costs, as well as daily updates and extensive market information to help consumers in their quests to obtain mortgage loans and refinancing.

Relying on various wholesale lenders for its retail home loan programs, Loans4Less.com is committed to offering consumers the lowest deliverable rates and closing costs available, also offering guaranteed closing costs. Loans4Less.com does not operate a warehouse line of credit, hold trust funds, lend directly, or service loans, and the company sidesteps the risks and problems associated with sub-prime or Alt “A” lending. The company’s pristine record, completely devoid of litigation and obligation defaults, as well as its industry-leading reputation and established relationships with respected lenders have made it an attractive option for those seeking to purchase or refinance a home.

Loans4Less offers valuable advice and service to its borrowers. What it does not offer is rate quotes or point quotes that are undeliverable. Consumers will never find unrealistic quotes posted as a lure or misleading inducement tactics from Loans4Less.com. The company’s aim is to make the decision process comfortable and straightforward by providing an honest, itemized truth-in-lending disclosure statement/good faith estimate from the get-go, with no camouflage or unfulfilled promises. The company’s goal is, simply, to offer the lowest deliverable rates and closing costs possible.

Loans4Less.com, Inc. is a publicly traded online mortgage loan brokerage focused on becoming a national loan origination platform for standard “A” paper conforming residential mortgage programs. The company prides itself on honest and excellent service and has survived the “credit crisis” that has destroyed much of the competition.
