Monaker Group, Inc. (MKGI) Benefits When Business Travelers Add Leisure

Annual spending on leisure travel, at $650.8 billion in 2015, far exceeds spending on business travel, which totaled $296.3 billion during the same period, according to the U.S. Travel Association (http://dtn.fm/4Y0zB). But travelers are increasingly mixing business travel with leisure by extending their trips and combining the two. Monaker Group, Inc. (OTCQB: MKGI) serves this market through its subsidiaries, NextTrip.com, a real-time online booking platform, and Maupintour, which specializes in luxury and customized tours.

Monaker Group’s NextTrip.com and Maupintour offer technology-driven platforms which enable travelers to learn, plan, and execute their trips online. BridgeStreet Global Hospitality (http://dtn.fm/4B4iz) has found that travelers want sightseeing, dining and arts/culture in locations they were already traveling to for business.

According to the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) (http://dtn.fm/rqAV7), 45% of employees at firms with less than 250 employees extended trips, compared to 38% at companies with 250-499 employees and just 30% at companies of 500 or more.

Some 52% are extending business trips with leisure travel with a spouse or significant other, the GBTA’s Business Travel Sentiment Index™ found in 2015. Further, 63% use the opportunity to explore the destination, and 48% said they would visit family or friends.

In the 2016 GBTA Index survey, mobile devices, social networks and apps were noted as important business travel tools. Some 72% of millennials and 64% of all business travelers check their travel itineraries at least once a day, and some 31% said they prefer to use electronic receipts instead of hard copies for tracking expenses.

Monaker Group has its own Monaker Booking Engine (MBE), which, in real time, has a global inventory of air, lodging, and tours, all viewable from a single online site. Travel bookings can be organized for the business traveler, the leisure traveler, or both. Monaker recently announced plans to release its own app for NextTrip on Android and iOS by the end of January 2017.

Additionally, Monaker Group has access to alternative lodging options for the traveler on its NextTrip.com site, with rentals of private residences or unused timeshare rooms in managed properties. In a news release, Bill Kerby, chairman and CEO of Monaker Group, said that the company is well positioned to take advantage of the trend to alternative lodging and travel. Monaker’s management team believes that the alternative lodging rental (ALR) market will reach $169 billion by 2019 and sees it as the fastest-growing segment of the business.

The company believes it is able to leverage its more than 60 years in leisure travel with new technology to best deliver its services. It said it plans to introduce artificial intelligence to NextTrip.com in the future under its ‘Travel Made Easy’ platform. Alternative travel includes everything from private residences available for rent to fractional shares of timeshare resort rooms.

Through NextTrip.com, Monaker Group is able to bring all of these elements in an online platform to the prospective traveler. Through Maupintour, it can organize even more specialized travel. Maupintour offers unique and luxury tours with a high repeat rate among travelers. Millennials want a single source for their combined business and leisure travel.

Function(x) Inc. (NASDAQ: FNCX) Stole a March on the Women’s March with Wetpaint for Millennial Women

The hundreds of thousands of women who attended the Women’s March on Washington and its ‘sister’ marches across the nation and around the world attest to the magnitude of ‘girl power’. The status of women has certainly changed from what it was in the 15th century, when the English clergyman, John Mirk, wrote in a homily that survives, slightly altered, to this day: a maid should be seen, but not heard.

The multitude of maids that paraded across Independence Avenue and at other locations was certainly seen and definitely heard. The modern woman takes an active role in public affairs, but she also indulges her fancy for lighter fare by visiting the Function(x) Inc. (NASDAQ: FNCX) website Wetpaint, which, for over six years now, has been serving millennial women with the latest entertainment scoops, including television, music, and pop culture news.

Millennials, or those born between 1982 and 2000, make up about one-quarter of the U.S. population. At 83.1 million, they now outnumber the 75.4 million Baby Boomers, according to recent Census Bureau (http://dtn.fm/BlAo7) data. Their numbers mean they cannot be ignored.

A feature on NewsCred Insights (http://dtn.fm/pNS12) stressed the need for those who market to Millennials to have relevant content. It also pointed out that you can ‘catch Millennials where they live: on social media’. Millennial women, it seems, make up the majority of users on social media platforms such as Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. Men prefer online discussion forums like the once profanity-laced Reddit. Gender differences on Twitter, Tumblr and LinkedIn are not, according to the Pew Research Center (http://dtn.fm/yX1BZ), significant. Most fascinating of all was the discovery that 70 percent of millennial women consider shopping to be entertainment. Who would have guessed?

That’s why, in 2010, Function(x) launched the Wetpaint Entertainment platform designed to offer the 18–34 year old female demographic information, entertainment and information on entertainment. On Wetpaint, Generation Y females can get the latest updates and breaking news on TV shows, celebrities, reality gossip, music, and fashion. The site, which depends on an advertising-based revenue model, publishes more than 55 new articles, videos and galleries each day.

To enhance its digital publishing business, Function(x) recently acquired the assets of Rant Inc., a leading digital publisher of original content across 13 different verticals, most notably in sports, entertainment, pets, cars, and food. The combined Wetpaint and Rant properties currently have approximately 13.5 million fans on their Facebook pages and generate an average of 14.4 million visits per month.

Another Function(x) property is Choose Digital, a white-label digital marketplace featuring a wide up-to-date range of digital content, including music, movies, TV shows, e-Books and audio books. The site offers an aggregation of movie and TV content plus content sourced from the world’s leading record companies and book publishers.

Function(x) also offers a daily fantasy sports experience both directly to consumers and to businesses desiring turnkey solutions through its majority ownership of DraftDay Gaming Group, which is well-positioned to become a significant player in the explosive fantasy sports market.

Catalyst Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CPRX) Offering Novel Therapies for Rare Diseases

A Florida-based biopharmaceutical company is giving hope to patients with rare debilitating diseases by developing innovative therapies designed specifically to improve and alleviate their symptoms. The main focus of Catalyst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPRX) is the development of a treatment for Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome (LEMS) – a rare, autoimmune, neuromuscular disorder characterized by muscle weakness and autonomic dysfunction.

With a prevalence of approximately 1 in 100,000 people in the United States and Canada, this ailment can be severely debilitating, as its primary symptoms are severe muscle weakness and fatigue. The disease occurs when the immune system starts attacking the nerves that control muscles, more specifically nerve cell proteins that regulate how much acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, is released. When the body cannot release enough of it, regular muscle contractions that allow walking, wiggling one’s fingers or shrugging one’s shoulders become almost impossible. In addition to these symptoms, approximately 50 percent of LEMS patients also develop a form of cancer, typically small cell lung cancer.

Catalyst Pharmaceuticals is currently developing amifampridine phosphate specifically for the treatment of LEMS and possibly other neuromuscular disorders. The company has recently completed a crucial Phase 3 clinical trial for amifampridine phosphate with positive top-line results: the 38 subject, global, multi-center study showed that the product is safe and effective in the treatment of LEMS Patients. The therapy has already received the Orphan Drug and Breakthrough Therapy designations from the Food and Drug Administration, which means that it can be made available on a compassionate use basis to patients who really need it, pending FDA’s approval for commercialization. Clinical trial participants can get continued access to the treatment through the Amifampridine Phosphate Expanded Access Program recently initiated by Catalyst Pharmaceuticals. In the meantime, the company continues its work to secure FDA approval for the therapy so as to begin commercializing it under the proposed tradename of Firdapse®.

The company believes this product has the potential to treat several other neuromuscular disorders including Congenital Myasthenic Syndromes (CMS) and some cases of myasthenia gravis that do not respond to regular approved therapies. These possible applications of the treatment are also mentioned in the NDA that Catalyst recently filed with the Food and Drug Administration. CMS is a rare autoimmune disorder that starts affecting patients shortly after birth or in their early childhood. Ranging in severity from minor to disabling symptoms, its main effect is a significant fatigable weakness of skeletal muscles that can even lead to episodes of respiratory insufficiency if other conditions, such as fever or infections, are present. Another condition that could be improved by amifampridine phosphate is downbeat nystagmus, popularly known as “dancing eyes” because of its most common symptom: involuntary rhythmic oscillations of the eyes.

In addition to amifampridine phosphate, Catalyst Pharmaceuticals is also developing CPP-115, a very potent GABA-aminotransferase inhibitor for the treatment of infantile spasms or seizures. In-vitro studies have indicated that CPP-115 is 200 times stronger than traditional therapies for this condition and that it may also have fewer side effects. Besides infantile spasms, CPP-115 might prove effective against a wide range of conditions, including other forms of epilepsy or central nervous system ailments such as Tourette Syndrome and PTSD.

eXp World Holdings, Inc. (EXPI) Operating in a Way that Contributes to Improvements in Environmental Sustainability

Despite many real estate firms having environmental policies, sustainability targets, and clear commitments and strategies to lower their carbon emissions, the real estate sector still uses more energy than any other sector. This is according to the ‘Environmental sustainability Principles for the Real Estate Industry’ report published by World Economic Forum (http://dtn.fm/Rb5J2), which views real estate as the operational life of the final buildings and not just what’s involved in their initial construction. In other words, how “green” are our buildings?

According to the report, not only are buildings the source of the most energy consumption, they are, understandably, also a growing contributor to CO2 emissions. In fact, real estate consumes over 40% of global energy every year. In addition, 20% of greenhouse gas emissions originate from buildings, a number that’s expected to increase 56% by the year 2030. The report continues to explain that, by 2030, buildings are expected to use up to 12% of the world’s fresh water.

However, although a large proportion of the world’s real estate already existed before eco-friendly policies were put in place, progress is being made toward “greener” real estate. The number of “green” commercial builds increased to between 40% and 48% in 2016, up from only 2% in 2005. Additionally, regulations are now in place to ensure that businesses work toward sustainability performance.

In support of these efforts, companies such as eXp World Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: EXPI) are completely changing the way the real estate industry itself functions. Gone are the days during which agents and brokers were expected to work in a brick and mortar office. EXPI has not only cut unnecessary expenses and built an agent-owned, cloud-based real estate brokerage that operates without the need for offices, utility bills, insurance, furnishings, and redundant staffing costs, the company has correspondingly cut its direct CO2 emissions.

Aside from the financial benefits of operating in the cloud, EXPI provides an extremely sound template for a more sustainable way of operating a real estate brokerage on all levels. The company works on the basis that its most valuable asset is the group of agents and brokers who are part of it. And, with no physical constrictions, eXp World Holdings, Inc. can focus its efforts on these assets while providing smart solutions to the climate concerns that the world is now facing, further championing sustainability across the entire real estate industry.

National Waste Management Holdings, Inc. (NWMH) Committed to Reducing C&D Waste Environmental Impact

Construction and demolition (C&D) debris occupies a significant portion of the entire waste stream in the United States, and improper disposal or failure to reuse or recycle this type of waste can have a major impact on the environment. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (http://dtn.fm/7kyMX), C&D waste amounted to more than 530 million tons in 2014, which was twice as much as the amount of solid municipal waste generated nationwide. Most of this debris (over 90 percent) came from demolition works, while the rest came from construction projects. The largest sector that generated C&D waste was non-residential demolition, followed by residential renovation, the EPA figures show.

Typically consisting of bulky, heavy materials such as wood products, steel, drywall, plaster, bricks and clay tiles, concrete and asphalt and even building components, C&D waste is more difficult to handle, so proper disposal and/or recycling often requires an extra effort on behalf of the contractor or beneficiary of the construction project. Most C&D debris ends up in a landfill, and that is considered the end of its lifecycle. However, due to the EPA’s Sustainable Materials Management approach, a growing volume of construction and demolition waste is now being recovered and recycled, thus reducing the need to mine for virgin materials.

Florida-based National Waste Management Holdings, Inc. (OTC: NWMH), a professional waste management operator offering a comprehensive suite of relevant services, is committed to recycling as much C&D waste as possible from all of its services, primarily from its 54-acre landfill located in Hernando, Florida. The landfill is authorized by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and disposes of roughly 240,000 cubic yards of C&D waste every year.

With a strong dedication to Department of Environmental Protection standards and to the Sustainable Materials Management approach, National Waste Management Holdings focuses on reducing the volume of excessive waste by recycling several C&D materials. For this purpose, it has transformed its entire line of services to focus on recycling and has plans to set up a portable waste sorting line at its landfill this year, so as to increase recyclable rates. The company receives a wide range of approved C&D waste at its landfill, including asphalt; brick; drywall and plaster; lumber and wood; pallets; dirt, sand and uncontaminated soil; roofing materials; glass; metal materials; non-asbestos insulation; electrical wiring and components; and more.

In its efforts to further reduce the environmental impact of C&D debris, National Waste Management Holdings has already found a great use for the wood debris collected through its landfill and transfer stations: it manufactures and sells its own line of proprietary mulch, a high-quality product already used to help beautify homes and commercial properties throughout west and central Florida. The mulch is made entirely of recycled wood and is available either in natural color or red dyed.

According to the EPA, reducing the amount of C&D debris disposed of in landfills can have significant economic and environmental benefits, such as preserving landfill space; having fewer disposal facilities, which can lower methane gas emissions and other associated environmental issues; reducing the negative environmental impact associated with the extraction and production of virgin construction materials; adding new economic and employment opportunities in the recycling industry; and creating additional business opportunities for local communities.

Ballard Power (NASDAQ: BLDP) Buys 100% of Its European Subsidiary, Grows Globally

Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ: BLDP) (TSX: BLDP) has purchased complete ownership of its European subsidiary from Dansk Industri Invest A/S for what it termed a “nominal value”. The subsidiary is now named Ballard Power Systems Europe A/S.

With that name change, the subsidiary will now use the Ballard brand, such as visual identity and logo, and will play an expanded role in supporting all of Ballard’s activities in Europe. The transaction will enable the company to not only acquire all the shares of the company, but also cancel the debt owed by the parent company to Dansk Industri. Prior to this, Ballard held 57% of the shares of the subsidiary, while Dansk Industri held the other 43%.

Ballard is a clean power company that specializes in fuel cell stack development (proton exchange membrane), fuel processing and systems integration. Ballard is considered one of the key vendors in the global fuel cell market. The company has announced that its fuel cells, branded as FCveloCity®, are in engines used in 80 buses internationally in Europe, China, the United States, Brazil, and India. Ballard is currently focused on expanding within the countries in which it is already operating, as well as adding to the list of countries using its fuel cell engines. Other transportation systems also use the technology, such as light rail.

The acquisition of the subsidiary closed on January 5, 2017. In a news release, Tony Guglielmin, CFO of Ballard Power Systems and chairman of Ballard Power Systems Europe A/S, said the company began the takeover process two years ago. “Europe is a critically important market for Ballard and we have taken important steps to strengthen our sales, engineering and service capabilities to support expected market growth,” he noted. About 50 employees work at the European subsidiary based in Hobro, Denmark. Ballard’s headquarters are located in Burnaby, British Columbia, in Canada.

Randy MacEwen, Ballard president and CEO, also said that the company achieved 10 million cumulative kilometers (6.2 million miles) worldwide with vehicles powered by its fuel cell motors. “We are moving beyond technical validation into commercial scaling at a time where market demand is at a breakthrough inflection point,” he said. “The cumulative learning by Ballard during our unparalleled field experience serves as a major competitive differentiator.” The company said it is seeing increased market demand for its fuel cell engines.

Ballard Power recently reported its third quarter results, with revenues for the three-month period ended September 30, 2016, totaling $20.6 million, compared to $16.0 million for the same period of the prior year. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, revenues were $54.6 million, versus $36.5 million the prior year. Shares of Ballard were trading at $1.91 on the Nasdaq Global Market as of January 17, 2017.

Last month, Ballard announced that its stock ticker symbol on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) had been changed to BLDP. The result is that the company now has the same ticker symbol on both the Nasdaq and TSX.

Ballard was named one of the nation’s Top 20 innovative public technology companies by the Canadian Innovation Exchange (CIX).

Monaker Group, Inc. (MKGI) Makes Business-Leisure Travel More Accessible

At one time there was a feeling that, in an age where virtually everything is connected and platforms such as Skype and Facetime make video conferencing easily accessible, traveling for business would no longer be necessary. However, according to Globetouch (http://dtn.fm/rsN9l), the Asia-Pacific region doubled its business travel output between 2005 and 2015, with these numbers expected to grow further during the coming years.

This has been attributed, in part, to the fact that more people are learning how to combine business travel with leisure, encouraging many to look upon business travel as a positive. According to ‘Predictions: The 8 Hot Travel Trends In 2017’ (http://dtn.fm/6Igkt), a WIT article, “30% of travelers said they would accept a lower paid job if it meant they could travel more for work.” It also states that “Of the 40% of global travelers who journeyed for business this year, 46% would travel even more for business in 2017.”

Businessmen and women are realizing that it is possible to combine work and pleasure, and opting to travel more for work makes the leisure opportunities more affordable. With many business travelers today being millennials, they expect a seamless travel experience, where they can see to their business affairs while incorporating some rest and relaxation into their trips. With the help of technology, this has been made possible.

Monaker Group, Inc. (OTCQB: MKGI), a technology driven travel company with a number of divisions and brands boasting more than 60 years of combined experience in the travel and leisure industry, provides an all-in-one platform through its flagship NextTrip.com planner, which makes planning work and leisure combination travel easy.

The NextTrip.com travel planner works with a range of mobile devices, and it allows those traveling for both business and pleasure to organize and plan a trip from start to finish. Including rental homes, hotels, timeshare resorts, airlines, tours, and car rentals, the travel planner makes the multitude of options clear to the user on one screen. In addition to the above, the planner gives users the chance to import all bookings onto one device; find attractions, restaurants, and bars in their desired locations; and maintain a level of financial organization, all for free.

An Update on Axsome Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: AXSM)

Once New York-based Axsome Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: AXSM) was founded in 2012, its team set out to establish a fully-integrated biopharmaceutical business that would develop therapies to treat and manage central nervous system (CNS) disorders. Now in 2017, the Axsome team is setting off on another exciting leg on this journey.

For years, Axsome has been laser-focused on improving the lives of patients living with pain and various CNS disorders. With an eye toward differentiated therapies, the company has concentrated on developing and commercializing both in-licensed drug candidates and internally-derived drug candidates in order to accomplish its goal of increasing the treatment options accessible to caregivers.

Along the way, industry analysts have pointed out the value in Axsome’s focus on complex regional pain syndrome, treatment resistant depression and agitation in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD); the lower-than-average research and development risks, as well as the tested business models that surround these disorders, hint at a faster commercialization schedule.

During the first week of 2017, a new report from AEGIS Capital Corp. (http://dtn.fm/w6MIe) also alluded to Axsome’s accelerated timeline and other investment highlights, including recent developments affecting one of the company’s two late-stage drug candidates: AXS-05, a fixed-dose combination of dextromethorphan and bupropion that is being developed for multiple indications, including treatment resistant depression and agitation in patients with AD.

According to the AEGIS report, on January 4, 2017, Axsome announced that the United States’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had cleared its Investigational New Drug (IND) application for a phase II/III clinical trial of AXS-05 in AD. This is a significant development for the company, as this IND program is the means by which a pharmaceutical company operating within the United States obtains permission to ship an experimental drug across state lines (usually to clinical investigators) before a marketing application for the drug has been approved. With the FDA’s approval in tow, the placebo-controlled, randomized, double-blind, multicenter trial is now set to register the necessary 330 patients and to commence sometime in the first half of 2017.

National Waste Management Holdings, Inc. (NWMH) Turns Trash into Treasure, Records Strong Revenue Growth

National Waste Management Holdings, Inc. (OTC: NWMH) has turned the old aphorism ‘garbage in – garbage out’ on its head. It’s now ‘garbage in, revenues up’. In its last 10-Q filing, for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016, the company reported quarterly revenues of $1.8 million, which represented a 269 percent increase over 2015 same period revenues. This stellar performance in the third quarter boosted revenues in the nine-month period ended September 30, 2016, to $4.9 million, up by 262 percent over same period revenues for 2015. Not all garbage, it seems, is waste.

National Waste operates a licensed 54-acre landfill in Hernando, Florida, that disposes of roughly 240,000 cubic yards of construction debris annually. These landfill services include the disposal of asphalt and rock; lumber and wood; brick; wallboard, drywall and plaster; pallets; rock concrete; dirt, sand and uncontaminated soil; plumbing fixtures; non-asbestos insulation; roofing materials and shingles; glass; piping; waste metal; brush and land clearing; yard and tree waste; and many electrical and wiring components.

However, as extensive as those facilities are, they do not encompass the whole range of landfill services. There’s a lot more to garbage disposal than meets the eye.

Solid waste, defined as household garbage and industrial non-hazardous waste, is disposed of in a variety of landfills. Municipal solid waste landfills (MSWLF) are designed to accommodate the disposal of household waste but may accept other types of non-hazardous wastes, such as commercial solid waste, non-hazardous sludge, and industrial non-hazardous solid waste. A special kind of MSWLF is the bioreactor landfill, designed to degrade waste in a controlled manner.

Even though some commercial solid waste and industrial non-hazardous solid waste ends up in MSWLFs, there are special facilities, known as industrial waste landfills, designed to take commercial and institutional waste. In this category are construction and demolition (C&D) debris landfills, designed exclusively for construction and demolition materials, which consist of the debris generated during the construction, renovation and demolition of buildings, roads and bridges. C&D materials are typically bulky, heavy materials, such as concrete, wood, metals, glass and salvaged building components.

Another type of industrial waste landfill is the coal combustion residual (CCR) landfill, which is meant to accommodate coal ash and other residuals from coal combustion.

With such a heterogeneous landscape, there is ample opportunity for National Waste to continue the implementation of its vertical integration strategy. Apart from its landfill services, the company rents out roll-off containers of 20, 30 and 40 cubic yard capacity. It also offers recycled wood mulch and garden mulch products. The route is clear for National Waste to realize its long-term goal of servicing the entire East Coast, from Florida to New York.

National Waste is a vertically-integrated waste management company offering landfill, transfer station, garbage collection and container services for both commercial entities and residential customers in Central Florida and Upstate New York. The company presently services the counties of Citrus, Hernando, and Marion in Florida and Upstate New York with 13 roll-off trucks and approximately 800 containers.
