The Globe and Mail Ranks Kontrol 81st in Canada’s Top Growing Companies 2020

  • Following a number of pilots for its SmartSuite® technology the Company has received an order for four apartment buildings located in Ontario, Canada
  • The contract win was awarded after a comprehensive Request for Proposal (RFP) process that involved other competitors
  • For industry competitive purposes revenue details and size of the order will not be disclosed.

TORONTO, ON / September 28, 2020 / Kontrol Energy Corp. (CSE:KNR)(OTCQB:KNRLF)(FSE:1K8) (“Kontrol” or “Company“) is pleased to announce it has won a new order for its smart building technology across four buildings and has been recognized as one of Canada’s top growing companies by the Globe and Mail Top Growing Companies 2020.

New Smart Building Technology Win
Following a number of pilots for its SmartSuite® technology the Company has received an order for four apartment buildings located in Ontario, Canada. The contract win was awarded after a comprehensive Request for Proposal (RFP) process that involved other competitors. For industry competitive purposes revenue details and size of the order will not be disclosed.

“We’ve selected Kontrol and their SmartSuite® technology to help us control, manage and reduce in-suite heating costs in four of our multi-unit residential (apartment) properties in Ontario,” says Cam Murchison, Vice President, Property Standards at Q Residential (a leading private real estate asset manager and operator). “Their smart building technology attracted better than expected incentives from the local utility and allows us to understand what is happening within the suites when it comes to temperatures and open windows and doors across the four buildings. With their system providing cloud access to in-suite temperatures and settings, using our mobile devices and laptops, we no longer need to enter our tenant’s spaces to troubleshoot and make changes, allowing us to avoid unnecessary and expensive truck rolls. This is a big advantage and benefit under the environment we now operate in.”

We are thankful to all of our customers, employees and partners for their support as we continue to develop our technology solutions to build a better future for all,” says Paul Ghezzi, CEO of Kontrol Energy.

  • Announced short form agreement to grant Austin, TX based startup CasaPerks LLC a non-exclusive license to use various aspects of Loop’s technology in return for $1,930,000 in cash and shares
  • CasaPerks is a property technology, or “proptech”, startup from Austin, Texas
  • As part of this multi-pronged approach, CasaPerks will provide both reward (i.e points) and fintech layers (i.e. car payments) that will require the artificial intelligence capabilities of Loop to optimize and maximize a target market that includes 79.5 million renters in 14.1 million units

VANCOUVER, BC , Sept. 28, 2020 – Loop Insights Inc. (TSXV: MTRX) (the “Company” or “Loop”), a provider of contactless solutions and artificial intelligence (“AI”) to drive real-time insights, enhanced customer engagement, and automated contact tracing to the brick and mortar space, is pleased to announce the signing of a short form agreement to grant Austin, TX based startup CasaPerks LLC (“CasaPerks”) a non-exclusive license to use various aspects of Loop’s technology in return for $1,930,000 in cash and shares.

CASAPERKS SOLUTION FOR THE PROPTECH MARKET COMBINED WITH LOOP ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE CREATES POWERFUL, DISRUPTIVE OFFERING

CasaPerks is a property technology, or “proptech”, startup from Austin, Texas . Proptech is a very fast-growing space and CasaPerks is on its cutting edge, creating a multi-pronged solution specifically for the commercial real estate industry. For the property operator, CasaPerks will help drive revenues and significantly reduce costs, while for the resident it will greatly enhance the overall living experience.

As part of this multi-pronged approach, CasaPerks will provide both reward (i.e points) and fintech layers (i.e. car payments) that will require the artificial intelligence capabilities of Loop to optimize and maximize a target market that includes 79.5 million renters in 14.1 million units. Loop Technologies included in the license are as follows:

  • AI Data Insights Portal;
  • Smartapp Check-in technology;
  • Digital Wallet Pass Technology

Loop Insights CEO Rob Anson stated, “I am very excited about the path and direction of CasaPerks, which is led by Kevin Bradt , whose track record of success speaks for itself. CasaPerks’ major disruptive strategy, which now creates a return on rental investment, is a major paradigm shift in the entire sector’s core value proposition. Combined with our AI & Big Data Solutions, CasaPerks’ loyalty rewards and Fintech will result in a very powerful product offering. COVID-19 has accelerated the necessity for mobile commerce in every vertical, and CasaPerks is now set to quickly become the new standard for the industry.”

DISRUPTIVE OFFERING PROVIDES MASSIVE POTENTIAL UPSIDE AS “PROPTECH” GROWS UNDER COVID-19

The last couple of years have seen the emergence of proptech, which is applying information technology and platform economics to streamline and modernize the cumbersome process of browsing, building, and transacting in real estate.

In 2019 alone, upwards of $16 billion USD in venture capital flowed into proptech startups (according to data from Crunchbase and Pitchbook), clearly demonstrating that VC’s “are turning to proptech for returns and disruption on a global scale”.

The advent of COVD-19 has only further accelerated the need for proptech applications from Hedge Funds, Pension Funds and owners who have seen significant disruption in their investments and look to new revenue models and opportunities.

LICENSING AGREEMENT CREATES “A.I. PROPTECH” FOR GLOBAL SCALE

The CasaPerks platform infused with Loop Insights technology represents the dawn of Artificially Intelligent property technology that delivers an entirely new experience to users while providing investors and owners with multiple areas to create value.

Moreover, the offering will provide major brands with unparalleled data and direct access to the CasaPerks user base, including renowned brands in grocery, finance, fast food, internet, and entertainment.

The combination of CasaPerks and Loop is expected to create lucrative revenue models based on known user profiles thanks to robust granular insights based on real-time engagement, spend and future needs, leading to significant impacts on:

  • ARPU Average Revenue Per User
  • ARPL Average Revenue Per Location

Kevin Bradt , CEO of CasaPerks, stated, “Our strategy at CasaPerks is to build a robust platform with best-in-class partnerships throughout our entire ecosystem. Loop’s technology is very impressive and provides us with significant additional layers to our core technology that will prove to be extremely valuable. Our vision is to expand CasaPerks from a regional offering to a national footprint and then eventually achieving global scale.”

TERMS OF THE AGREEMENT

The following are the material terms of the agreement between Loop and Casa Perks:

Loop will license the following Loop technology:

  • AI Data Insights Portal;
  • Smartapp Check-in technology;
  • Digital Wallet Pass Technology

In exchange for the license, Loop will receive a total value of $1,930,000 USD in a combination of both:

  • Cash $250,000
  • Stock $1,680,000 (6,720,000 shares X $0.25 /share)

Both parties have agreed to a 60-day closing period for a definitive agreement, the terms of which are subject to Loop Board of Directors Approval.

6 Small Cap Companies That Will Benefit from Canadian Liberal Government’s New Focus on Electric Vehicle #EV #Batteries and Vehicles $GRAT.ca $HPQ.ca $LMR.ca $NAM.ca $SX.ca $TN.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 2:11 PM on Friday, September 25th, 2020

The Liberal Government announced new measures towards climate, clean energy and transport in yesterday’s throne speech. This will no doubt help accelerate the transition toward electric mobility while ensuring a cleaner, healthier economy.  Here are 6 small cap companies that stand to benefit from these initiatives (in alphabetical order).

Gratomic Inc. (GRAT :TSXV) is gearing up to bring its high grade, environmentally sustainable graphite to the North American EV market. In a race that started in 2012, Gratomic is the only one of several graphite companies that has successfully brought its asset through to the final construction phase.

The Company is now ready to introduce its graphite to battery producers for use in advanced anode technology. Being of such naturally high purity, Gratomic’s vein graphite is ideal for use in this application, requiring simpler, less expensive and more efficient processing methods, resulting in a final product with naturally lower contents of deleterious elements.

In addition to its high purity levels, the Company’s Aukam graphite is a much cleaner alternative to this market’s current supply options as a sustainably sourced resource as per the Company’s September 3rd Press Release. The Company intends to establish a new benchmark for recording and guaranteeing the product’s carbon footprint, based on latest generation blockchain technology.

Gratomic is preparing the high grade Aukam Graphite mine for commercial production. The company anticipates commencement of production in Q4 of 2020 while producing 20,000 tonnes of high purity vein graphite annually to support a burgeoning market.

HPQ Silicon Resources (HPQ:TSXV) is a Canadian producer of Silicon Solutions that is building a line of specialty silicon products needed for electric batteries. More than just lip service, HPQ has already announced NDA’s with 2 undisclosed companies in the space and has hinted at other NDA’s that are so tight they could not even be announced.

Over the past 5 years, HPQ has teamed up with 2 world renowned technology partners, including PyroGenesis Canada (PYR:TSXV)  to manufacture high purity silicon cleaner, cheaper and better than anyone in the world – because you can’t dig it out of the ground like other battery metals such as graphite, cobalt and nickel. Now HPQ is on the verge of sending samples of its industry leading silicon to NDA and other potential partners as early as December. 

However, despite providing shareholders with a great return during this period, HPQ’s silicon plan was still met by skepticism amongst investors who found it easier to understand traditional battery metal stories ….  This all changed on September 23rd 2020, when this headline emerged from Tesla’s “Battery Day”

Lomiko Metals (LMR: TSXV) discovered high-grade graphite at La Loutre property in Quebec and is working toward a Pre Economic Assessment to increase current resource to 10m/t of 10% Cg.

“Initial indications are that La Loutre Graphite Property is high-quality and high-grade and thus worthy of development.” stated A. Paul Gill, CEO. “The only operating graphite mine in North America which is the Imerys Graphite & Carbon at Lac-des-Îles, is 30 miles northwest of La Loutre and has operated for 30 years.

Lomiko is in an ideal position to participate in the Electrical Vehicle market with the potential to become a North American supplier of graphite materials.

The Company’s philosophy is to be a project generator with the objective of optioning its Lithium projects with major and junior mining companies through to production.

St-Georges Eco-Mining (SX:CSE) is developing new technologies to solve some of the most common environmental problems in the mining industry.  The company is focused on value-adding the recovery of battery-grade nickel, ferronickel for alloying in the stainless steel industry and recovery of valuable elements such as cobalt. St-Georges is working on processing nickel and minimizing tailings with solutions to energy challenges.

The company is also working on lithium extraction technologies with non-conventional resources, such as clays, and working on ways to concentrate and reduce the environmental impact while unlocking the valuable content of the material.

More than just lip service, the Company’s lithium extraction technology has already delivered its first License agreement with Iconic Minerals in exchange for:

  •  $100,000 cash
  • 5,000,000 shares in 3 stages
  • A perpetual net revenue interest royalty (NRI) of 5% on all minerals produced on sites licensed with SX technologies in the state of Nevada

CEO Mr. Mark Appleby stated, “The Updated Mineral Resource Estimate was necessary to determine if Kenbridge mineralization is potentially extractable under current metal prices and exchange rates. This is a major milestone achieved by the Company as the market conditions for Class 1 nickel sulphide deposits improve. The differences between the previous P&E Mineral Resource Estimate (2008) and the current P&E Updated Mineral Resource Estimate are attributed to changes in metal prices and recalculation of NSR values.

As the name implies, ImagineAR (IP:CSE / IPNFF:OTCQB) is an Augmented Reality Company … but they’re not just any AR company.  Imagine enables businesses to create their own mobile phone AR campaigns with no programming or technology experience. Why is that important?  Ask Apple CEO Tim Cook who stated 

“AR Will play an important role in how we use technology in the future – and promises to be as influential in our society as the smart phone”   

For those of you that are just discovering Augmented Reality, “AR” is essentially a technology that lays digital images and graphics over the real world, typically by looking through your cell phone or special glasses.  If you think it sounds like a gimmick, it isn’t.  AR will create an entire new revenue stream for businesses, organizations and sports teams that will boggle the mind in the next 3 years.  

ImagineAR provides small cap investors with an opportunity to participate in the growth of this mega market in the making …. and some of the smartest people in sports agree the Company is a best of breed company:  

“In my 30 years working in sports and entertainment technology, I have never seen a solution that provides such a high level of interaction & engagement”  (Chris Dill)  

“The ImagineAR platform is years ahead of every other company today” (WaV Sports)”  

“ImagineAR has one of the most amazing mobile technologies I have seen to date” (Gus Frerotte)  

 “The ImagineAR augmented reality platform is truly a gamechanger for sports organizations and athletes to deliver in-home mobile phone engagement” (WaV Sports)  

If that wasn’t enough, the NFL Alumni Association believes it as well, signing a 5-year partnership agreement with ImagineAR to provide its Augmented Reality Platform for the launch of their new NFLA mobile interactive products.  This agreement provides for equal program revenue sharing over the 5-year term.    

On its own, this is a great partnership for ImagineAR.  But in the bigger picture, this kind of 3rd party validation from the top of the professional sports food chain has just put ImagineAR firmly on the map.

VIDEO – $HPQ.ca Silicon Applauds Elon Musk And #Tesla $TSLA Use Of Silicon To Revolutionize Electric Vehicle Batteries $DUK $XEL $NEE $PYR.ca @elonmusk

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 1:28 PM on Thursday, September 24th, 2020

HPQ Silicon Resources (HPQ:TSXV) is a Canadian producer of Silicon Solutions that is building a line of specialty silicon products needed for electric batteries.

More than just lip service, HPQ has already announced NDA’s with 2 undisclosed companies in the space and has hinted at other NDA’s that are so tight they could not even be announced.

Over the past 5 years, HPQ has teamed up with 2 world renowned technology partners to manufacture high purity silicon cleaner, cheaper and better than anyone in the world – because you can’t dig it out of the ground like other battery metals such as graphite, cobalt and nickel. Now HPQ is on the verge of sending samples of its industry leading silicon to NDA and other potential partners as early as December.

However, despite providing shareholders with great a great return during this period, HPQ’s silicon plan was still met by skepticism amongst investors who found it easier to understand traditional battery metal stories.
This all changed yesterday, September 23rd 2020, when this headline emerged from Tesla’s “Battery Day”

“Tesla To Revolutionize Use Of Silicon In Batteries: Slash Costs, Increases Range”

With the specific references to Silicon + Cheaper Cost + Longer Range, you would have thought HPQ wrote this headline themselves given the fact this is EXACTLY what they have been telling the world for the last 5 years.  Now, thanks to this headline, HPQ Silicon no longer has to convince everybody that Silicon is the holy grail of batteries …. Elon Musk and Tesla have done it for them in one fell swoop.

If you are serious about battery metals and electric vehicles entering a paradigm shifting parabolic stage in the next 5 years, then you owe it to yourself to watch this interview with CEO Bernard Tourillon.
