The COVID-19 Pandemic has wreaked havoc on the global economy but perhaps no industry has suffered worse than the travel industry which could suffer an unfathomable loss of $US 3.3 TRILLION (Not A Typo) if it can’t find a practical solution to replace the shut down and / or quarantine measures mandated around the world.  Specifically, as of today, travel restrictions by country are as follows: 

  • 58 countries are completely closed
  • 124 countries are partially open with MANDATORY quarantine upon arrival

Unlike the restaurant business which can mitigate losses through alternative models such as take-out, delivery and outdoor patios, the travel industry has no mitigation solutions.  Countries are either shut down or implementing such strict quarantine requirements that they might as well be shut down.  The only solution is a complete solution that combines venue tracing, contact tracing and rapid testing to give government, airlines and cruise ships the comfort they need to know that travellers are not spreading COVID-19 to each other, or to other countries. 

Loop Insights CEO, Rob Anson confirmed this when he said:

“We have heard from stakeholders in the entertainment, travel, and hospitality industries that have stressed the importance of an end-to-end integrated solution capable of protecting employees and customers to facilitate a safe economic recovery.”

ENTER THE “TRAVEL BUBBLE”

Earlier today, Empower Clinics (CBDT:CSE) and Loop Insights (MTRX:TSXV) announced they have combined forces to provide an end-to-end COVID-19 mitigation solution complete with venue tracing, real-time automated guest exposure notifications and frequent testing with rapid results in 15 minutes.  More than just lip service, each company brings a strong recent track record of success in their respective parts of the bubble as follows:

LOOP INSIGHTS

As the front facing part of the Travel Bubble solution, Loop Insights is a powerful Artificial Intelligence company whose industry leading venue tracing has gained significant traction towards reopening the tourism, hospitality and entertainment industries in the United States with the likes of University of Houston and the NCAA Basketball #VegasBubble, as well as, recently being recognized by TELUS as one of the most advanced IoT solutions in the world for their customers.

EMPOWER CLINICS

Empower’s rapid antigen and antibody tests produce results in only 15 minutes, providing airlines, cruise ships and the 182 countries currently in full or partial shutdown with the safety and security necessary to fully reopen their borders to international travel. Moreover, Empower’s KAI Medical Laboratory is a high-complexity accredited laboratory that provides reliable and accurate testing solutions to enterprise level clients, including the gold standard COVID-19 RT-PCR testing  with the capacity to process 4,000 tests per day. Empower recently announced a deal to provide a major film and television studio with 1,000 such tests.

Together, the two companies believe the Travel Bubble combination of frequent testing and a robust international tracing platform provides the end-to-end protection necessary to spark a strong global economic recovery.

Sounds too good to be true?  Both companies still have to execute but they advise that advanced discussions are already underway with major airlines, cruise ship companies and hotel operators.

American Creek Provides Update on Its First Quarter Filings

American Creek Resources (AMK:TSX-V) Treaty Creek Project has been the subject of incredible discussion in 2020, including by Eric Sprott who stated Treaty Creek may have as much as 50,000,000 ounces of gold this summer.

There isn’t a single junior exploration company that isn’t envious of Treaty Creek and the one good problem it is creating for the Company – it is overshadowing everything else in the Company.  As such, AMK announced the following:

“American Creek Announces Spinout of Dunwell Property and Other Properties and Assets and Sets Date for Annual General & Special Meeting”

Watch this powerful interview with CEO Darren Blaney as to the reasons for the spinout that go well beyond the obvious. 

VIDEO – $HPQ.ca Silicon Is Able To Deliver The Carbon Coated #Silicon @ElonMusk, #Tesla And Electric Battery Makers Are Seeking $EFL.ca $EGT.ca $ENPH $PYR.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 1:50 PM on Wednesday, October 14th, 2020

HPQ Silicon Resources (HPQ:TSXV) is a Canadian producer of Silicon 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, has hinted at other NDA’s that are so tight they could not even be announced and just recently announced HPQ Receives Request for Spherical Nano Silicon Material From Major Automobile Manufacturer; First Pre-Order Expected Soon

5 YEARS ON THE SILICON ROAD LESS TRAVELED

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 a global auto manufacturer, NDA signatories and other potential partners as early as December.

However, despite providing shareholders with a great return during this period, HPQ’s silicon strategy was still met by skepticism amongst investors who found it easier to understand traditional battery metal stories.

TESLA CHANGED EVERYTHING OVERNIGHT

This all changed on 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.

BUT ELON MUSK NEEDED EVEN MORE

This quote from a story covering Tesla Battery Day says it all.

“Musk also added that he would tackle one of the key downsides of using silicon inside anodes by coating the silicon with elastic polymer coating and holding the silicon together with elastic binders.”

Was this the back breaking hurdle that would finally put a pin in the rising HPQ Silicon balloon?  The final step that couldn’t be crossed by 2 small cap technology companies from Quebec?

NOPE.

HPQ Silicon announced the following today  HPQ Proprietary Nano Silicon Manufacturing Process to Incorporate First Ever One Step Capability of Carbon Coating Nano Silicon Material as it is Produced

Not only could HPQ rise to the challenge of coating its silicon with carbon …. it announced it could do it in one step! HPQ CEO Bernard Tourillon stated:

“The decision to proceed with this additional capability demonstrates HPQ NANO’s leadership in the space and reflects the infancy of Silicon anode technology development. HPQ continues to expand the attractiveness of our product line for renewable energy storage participants and electric vehicle manufacturers who continue to search for cost effective ways of increasing the Silicon contained in their batteries. Our belief that HPQ NANO PUREVAP TM N SiR will open up unique multibillion-dollar business opportunity for HPQ and PyroGenesis has never been stronger.

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.

VIDEO – Empower Clinics $CBDT.ca Acquires Testing Lab And Lands First COVID-19 Testing Contract For Major Film & TV Studio $VPT.ca $ADK.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 6:42 PM on Wednesday, October 7th, 2020

Sometimes, you just have to let the numbers speak for themselves.  With 165,000 patients, Empower Clinics (CBDT:CSE) (EPWCF:OTCQB) has a database that almost every medical cannabis and CBD company would kill for … but then these numbers came in for the first two quarters:

Revenues $USD 1.7M vs $745,000 = 130% Gain

Patient Visits 12,400 vs 5,500 = 125% Gain

CBDT has now delivered growth in 4 successive financial reports (Q4, FY 2019, Q1 and Q2), so it is safe to say that superstar CEO Steve McAuley can officially claim victory on the turnaround he inherited in 2019.

But he is far from done.

In the last 36 hours, Empower announced:

1.  The acquisition of an 8,000 sq ft lab in Dallas (they do everything big over there) that can process 4,000 COVID-19 tests per day.  At the lowest price of $USD 80 per test and operating on just 1,000 tests per day, the clinic would deliver $USD 80,000 in revenue PER DAY.  We will let you do the math with the combination of higher prices + more tests per day.

2.  An agreement to run 1,000 COVID-19 RT-PCR Tests for a major film & TV studio, which could lead to much more business if all goes well with this first batch. To this end, the lab has already processed tests for six different film and television productions since September 1st (prior to the acquisition) and continues to build both confidence and credibility within the industry.

It doesn’t take much to see that the lab has the potential to take Empower to a whole new level.  Specifically, if you’re an investor in Well Health (WELL:TSX) and/or CloudMD (DOC:TSXV) you have to start taking a serious look at Empower as the next great potential health and wellness company.  It’s already proven solid revenues and growth from its clinics, is expanding its telemedicine practice very nicely and now has the power to quickly generate significant enterprise level revenues from its newly acquired medical diagnostics laboratory … which is already bearing fruit just 24 hours after the acquisition.

Can McAuley pull it off?  First consider what he has already accomplished after inheriting a catastrophe of a company in early 2019.  Secondly, McAuley is Six Sigma certified under the quality initiative of legendary GE (General Electric) Chairman Jack Welch. We’ve never seen a Six Sigma certified CEO in the Canadian small cap markets. Never …. which explains how McAuley has been able to guide Empower Clinics through the most disruptive retail environment in recent history and turn it into significant growth through Q2 2020 … with some jet fuel now added here in Q4.

And if you MISSED Well Health and CloudMD, you really need to take a close look at Empower as the next great small cap health & wellness company.

VIDEO – FansUnite $FANS.ca Becomes First Ever #Esports Odds & Feed Partner With Global Gaming Giant Pinnacle $DKNG $PENN $GAN $ESPO $AESE $EGLX.ca $BRAG.ca $FDM.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:47 PM on Tuesday, October 6th, 2020

The global online gambling market could potentially hit $1 TRILLION by the end of this decade. That isn’t a typo and the reasons are pretty clear – more jurisdictions are legalizing online gambling to get their hands on the tax revenue and the remaining 40% of people on the planet without internet access are going to get it.   

Until recently, however, small-cap investors did not have a company that could provide them ground floor exposure to this massive market and its growth over the next 10 years.  The industry was dominated by the big traditional gambling companies, who focus heavily on old fashioned gambling.  

That all changes with FansUnite, the small cap iGaming super company that goes beyond simple gambling and attacks both sides of the iGaming market by offering both B2C and B2B gambling platforms.   

More than just lip service, the formation of this iGaming super company became a reality when FansUnite acquired Askott Entertainment recently, the highlights of which are as follows:   

  • $27,000,000 Acquisition
  • Over $350,000,000 In Total Bets
  • Over 300,000 Registered Users
  • Strong Emphasis On Esports
  • Over 6,000 Casino Games Onto Platform
  • $5,000,000 Financing In Support Of The Acquisition
  • World Renowned Team

…. And now FANS just made a major leap forward in the esports betting world by becoming Pinnacle’s first odds & data B2B partners, giving them a major competitive advantage over other turnkey B2B esports betting products

“With Pinnacle’s addition and their relationship with GRID Esports, we continue to add the best esports betting data available with the most markets and the best odds. It’s exciting to be the first to offer Pinnacle Solution’ service, and we are honoured they chose to work with us,”

If that was all FANS had to say, this would already be a big announcement … but watch this interview to hear how fast they are moving on the biggest licenses in the gaming world, as well as, how big this industry is set to be in the coming years.

If you are looking for a disruptive technology company that is well positioned to carve out its share of the massive online gambling world, then you need to watch or listen to this interview with FANS CEO, Scott Burton.

VIDEO – Soldier Launched Micro Drones, Electronic Soldier Decoys and a $93,000,000 Pipeline – Meet Brand New Listing KWESST Micro Systems $KWE.ca $WRTC $BYRN.ca $PAT.ca $POWW

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:17 AM on Thursday, October 1st, 2020

If you haven’t heard of KWESST Micro Systems (KWE:TSXV) you’re not alone because the Company just listed for trading a couple of weeks ago – and it is probably the coolest new listing of 2020 if you love high-tech, covert defense systems that we only get to see in Tom Cruise movies.

KWESST is a leader in “soldier systems” which are technologies that increase the capabilities of soldiers,  Let’s be clear right off the start, KWESST doesn’t sell weaponry.  Rather, it sells technologies that make a big difference to the safety and effectiveness of soldiers.  

For example, out in a field of combat, soldiers emit Electro Magnetic (EM) signatures that make them detectable by enemy combatants.  KWESST has a battlefield decoy system that creates multiple false phantom signatures to spoof adversaries.  This picture is worth 1,000 words.  

 We could go on about many other such technologies created by KWESST but this is AGORACOM after all and we want to get down to the business of KWESST, the highlights of which are as follows:

  • A developer of next-generation systems for forces around the world, including those of NATO and its allies
  • A leadership team whose experience spans decades and hundreds of millions of dollars in military and homeland security contracts
  • A sales and distribution network of agents that spans the globe
  • Partnerships with globally recognized OEM’s, including Samsung
  • A sales pipeline that stands at $93,000,000 (not a typo) as of August 2020
  • Already generating revenues in 2020

And last but not least, a secret weapon in its Executive Chairman David Luxton, whose companies under his leadership have generated over $1,000,000,000 (Yes, BILLION).  

The soldier systems market is projected to hit $14.5 Billion by 2023 and, up until  now, small cap investors have never had a company to participate in this lucrative (and SUPER COOL) market.  

Now you do.  Meet KWESST Micro Systems.  Watch this first ever interview with David Luxton himself to learn about where KWESST is going.
