Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE) Electronic Payment Solutions Set to Depose Cash

  • Fast-growing electronic payments business
  • Non-cash payments continue to grow
  • Flagship Aptito restaurant management solution

Cash may be king, but Miami, Florida-based fintech Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE) seems set on deposing it. The innovative global technology company provides a range of non-cash payment solutions that are increasingly taking the place of cash as consumers expand their use of electronic means of payment. As global adoption of digital payments increases, the company expects its transaction processing business to continue growing at double-digit rates.

According to The Federal Reserve Payments Study 2016 (http://dtn.fm/T1SxD), non-cash payments in the U.S. in 2015, the last year for which data is available, amounted to about $178 trillion, taking the following forms and trillion-dollar amounts: debit cards ($2.56); credit cards ($3.16); checks ($26.83); ACH debits ($54.76) and ACH credits ($90.54). ACH (Automated Clearing House) transactions can be either debits, where someone authorizes a merchant, say, to withdraw funds from a bank account, or credits, where the holder of a bank account instructs his or her bank to transfer funds out of the account.

More details on the non-cash world come to light in the latest World Payments Report (http://dtn.fm/Pp19v), published by consultants Capgemini in collaboration with the French bank BNP Paribas, showing that cash may soon lose its crown. The report discovered that ‘global non-cash transaction volumes grew 11.2% during 2014-15, the highest growth of the past decade…’ For 2015, the last full year of data surveyed, ‘debit cards and credit transfers were the leading’ transaction instruments, with debit cards accounting for 46.7% and credit cards for 19.5% of global non-cash transactions. These are encouraging findings for NETE, since its transaction-solutions unit, which processes debit and credit cards, brings in the lion share of both revenues and income.

NETE’s North America Transaction Solutions unit, its major business division, provides a range of technology and services for retailers to accept cashless payments. These include both card-present (swipe) point-of-sale solutions and card-not-present alternatives, such as mail order or over the phone (MOTO) transactions, also called Merchant Acquiring transactions. The unit also offers mobile payment services, merchant performance analytical tools, merchant back office reporting, and the cloud-based Aptito point-of-sale platform.

Aptito is a unique restaurant point-of-sale product that aims to use mobility to give managers and staff greater control. The Aptito iOS cloud-based platform offers a comprehensive array of management and payment services specially designed for the food and beverage industry. It features digital menus (instead of traditional laminated paper stock ones), mobile point-of-sale (no running back and forth between tables and counter) and a Mobile Communicator that allows wait staff to send orders directly to the bar or kitchen. Aptito will reduce the time and energy wait staff expend going in person from diners to kitchen and back, undoubtedly improving customer service.

According to the latest SEC filing, the transaction-solutions business is doing extremely well. Revenues for the 12 months ended December 31, 2016, were up by 54 percent over same period 2015 revenues. As a result, the unit now contributes 78 percent of sales, up from the 68 percent one year ago.

In a recent update to investors, SeeThruEquity maintained the price target of $2.45 it had set earlier (http://dtn.fm/Vyr2U). Net Element stock, under the symbol NETE, currently trades at $0.50 on the NASDAQ Capital Market.

As it competes in the expanding sector of online-to-offline (O2O) marketing in China, Moxian, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOXC) is well-positioned to profit from the country’s booming economy.

Developed in China, Moxian provides social marketing and promotion platforms and helps merchants advertise through social media by integrating social media, entertainment, and business intelligence.

More than half of China’s 1.4 billion population use the internet, an estimated 733 million people, and the country boasts 691 million smartphone subscribers.

Moxian focuses on the online-to-offline market, helping offline merchants reach more digitally-oriented customers using promotions such as games, rewards, loyalty programs, and social events.

Targeting the more than 75 million small- and medium-sized businesses in China, Moxian helps companies grow their businesses using consumer behavior data compiled from the company’s database of consumer activities.

The company projects its mobile advertising revenue in China to reach $3 million in 2017 and $6 million in 2018 – which would account for 24% of total company sales.

Digital ad spending in China is expected to grow by 21.5% in 2017, and Moxian stands to benefit. Spending on digital advertising revenue in China has jumped to 57.2% of total ad dollars from just 19.4 percent five years ago.

Net Element (NASDAQ: NETE) Successfully Converts $2 Million Term Loan into $2.5 Million Revolving Loan

  • Extends loan to May 20, 2021, can take monthly advances up to $1 million
  • Proceeds to be used for retirement of debt, general working capital
  • North American Transactions segment jumps 40% in leading the way for NETE’s $13.6 million revenues in 1Q17

Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE) has successfully converted its $2 million term loan into a $2.5 million revolving loan, which enables NETE and its subsidiaries to take advances of up to $1 million every calendar month. The loan date was also extended to May 20, 2021, from the original date of May 20, 2019.

NETE is a global financial company that supports other firms with a cloud-based system of accepting electronic payments in an omni-channel environment. The company has three segments: North American Transaction Solutions, Mobile Payment Solutions and Online Payment Solutions. A growing percentage of its revenue comes from the North American segment, which generated 78% of total company sales in 2016 and $10,964,919 of NETE’s 1Q17 $13,561,941 revenues. This represented a 40% jump in sales for the North American segment from the prior year. The company attributed the increase to organic growth among its merchants.

In an SEC 8K filing (http://dtn.fm/C9nbd), NETE disclosed that the loan amendment was finalized June 27, 2017, with lender Priority Payment Systems LLC and NETE subsidiaries TOT Payments LLC, TOT New Edge LLC, Process Pink LLC and TOT FBS LLC.

As part of the agreement, NETE agreed to use the proceeds to meet its debt obligations from an acquisition, an ancillary agreement and for working capital. Its obligations under the agreement as of the amendment date totaled $1,925,967, according to the loan.

The company reported revenues of $54.3 million in 2016 and sales for the three months ended March 31, 2017, at $13,561,941, compared to $11,261,059 for the same period of the prior year.

NETE is seeking to generate more revenues in the future by launching a nationwide sales campaign for Aptito, its cloud-based point-of-sale system, with a special $1,200 incentive to agents and dealers per placement. Aptito is designed by NETE as a management tool to increase retention rates and sales productivity in the restaurant and retail industries. It also features a wide array of business management tools.

Moxian, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOXC) Stands to Benefit from Forecast 21.5% Growth in Chinese Digital Advertising for 2017

  • Moxian sees its own digital advertising at $3 million in 2017, $6 million in 2018
  • Digital advertising at Moxian projected to generate 24% of sales in 2018
  • 731 million people in China, more than half of whom use the internet

Moxian, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOXC) is setting a high priority for meeting its revenue goals on digital advertising. According to an AdAge report (http://dtn.fm/K5bnT) quoting WPP’s GroupM research (http://dtn.fm/Vv1s9), such spending in China is skyrocketing to 57.2% of total ad spending on the internet. Five years ago, that number was just 19.4%, per the report. By comparison, only about 30.9% of total ad spending will be digital in the U.S. this year.

Moxian is a digital marketing company which connects online users and merchants with its focus on offline merchants desiring to reach more digitally-oriented customers. Games, rewards and social events are critical to reaching consumers. In return, these merchants can use valuable information learned to promote their products and services at their brick-and-mortar stores in this online-to-offline (O2O) market.

Currently, Moxian is converting its Moxian+ business and user apps from free to paid. Key to Moxian’s revenue stream are fees, subscriptions, licenses and a percentage of all transactions. Vital to this is digital advertising. In the SeeThruEquity research report of February 28, 2017 (http://dtn.fm/0ycOx), mobile advertising is projected by Moxian to reach $3 million in 2017 before doubling to $6 million in 2018. That total would account for 24% of total company sales, it said.

Digital ad spending in China is expected to grow by 21.5% in 2017 compared to its growth of 29.5% last year, albeit on a smaller base. The increase in digital advertising in China is slower, in part, because its sales base has become larger. However, the GroupM report cites “continuing urbanization and solid consumer confidence” as lending optimism for continued overall advertising increases. China had 731 million internet users last year, accounting for more than half the country. That number represents more than double the size of the entire U.S. population.

MissionIRNewsBreaks – India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE: IGC) Featured in Benzinga Article Evaluating Potential of Cannabinoids in Treating Alzheimer’s

On Thursday, India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE MKT: IGC), a developer of cannabis-based therapies to treat a variety of life-altering conditions, was featured in an article on Benzinga titled ‘Marijuana Could Help Treat Alzheimer’s: Here’s How It Would Work’. The article notes that soon after discovering the pathway by which low-dose THC binds to amyloid beta plaques and prevents them from aggregating on neurons, the University of South Florida filed a patent for that mechanism. Notably, IGC announced on June 12 that it had acquired exclusive rights to this patent, titled ‘THC as a Potential Therapeutic Agent for Alzheimer’s Disease’, positioning the company to protect a potential cannabis-based blockbuster treatment for America’s most expensive disease. “What IGC is going to do with this patent is take it to clinical trials,” Ram Mukunda, CEO of IGC, stated in the Benzinga article. “We have productized it, and there is more than sufficient evidence. So, now we are now talking to several different places to see where we can begin clinical testing on the path to FDA approval.” If FDA approval is achieved, the market potential for a THC-based Alzheimer’s treatment could be expansive. There are currently more than 5.3 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s, and Medicare and Medicaid alone are expected to spend $175 billion on Alzheimer’s patients in 2017.

Net Element’s (NASDAQ: NETE) North American Business Up 40 Percent in First Quarter

  • North American business up 40 percent in Q1
  • Track record of phenomenal domestic growth with international growth plan in place
  • Zach’s pegs NETE at $3.12 per share once profitable

Currently trading at 65 cents a share, Zach’s Small Cap Research just pegged Net Element (NASDAQ: NETE) at $3.12, five times current market value, once it reaches profitability (http://dtn.fm/9vNVT). The highly respected research firm noted that Net Element’s U.S. business growth was up a phenomenal 40 percent in the first quarter, while the company’s overseas operations and expansion were currently dragging down growth. However, global expansion has been a cornerstone of Net Element’s long term growth plans.

Growth, the elixir of Wall Street, is no stranger to Net Element. Just last year, the company was recognized by the South Florida Business Journal as one of the fastest growing technology companies in the United States, and, in 2012, the company’s Unified Payments division was named the fastest-growing private company in America by Inc. Magazine. To become an industry leader, investing, opening and expanding into new markets is imperative to sustain growth trajectories over time.

A technology-driven mobile payments and transactional services company, Net Element’s products and services include mobile payments, value-added services, marketing solutions and business analytics. Through its wholly owned group of companies, Net Element’s global divisions support electronic payments acceptance in an omni-channel environment spanning across point-of-sale, e-commerce and mobile devices. The company provides turn-key services, including the technology and services required for cashless transactions, to small and medium-sized businesses throughout the United States and in select international markets.

Known for its dynamic marketing efforts, Net Element’s North American Unified Payments division continued its strong growth in Q1 2017 as the company added a record 1,500 merchants to its customer base. The company is aggressively adding new North American customers, and rapid customer acquisition is continuing into Q2.

Net Element’s international game plan is to spur global growth where it already has a substantial footprint by leveraging its omni-channel platform to deliver flexible offerings to select emerging markets with diverse banking, regulatory and demographic conditions, such as the UAE, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Azerbaijan. Net Element has already launched initiatives is these locations.

Given Net Element’s historic track record of phenomenal domestic growth, there’s no reason to doubt the company’s ability to grow internationally. Once Net Element kicks revenue in its international markets into high gear, profitability should be around the corner and Zach’s target of $3.12 per share should easily be in reach.

India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE: IGC) at the Threshold of a Potential Alzheimer’s Breakthrough

  • Alzheimer’s is the most ominous and expensive disease in the U.S.
  • IGC is the first and only NYSE MKT-listed pharmaceutical company to develop cannabis-based Alzheimer’s therapies
  • IGC’s patent pending phytocannabinoid therapies to enter clinical trials for potential Alzheimer’s breakthrough

A pioneer in the development of innovative cannabis-based combination therapies, India Globalization Capital (NYSE MKT: IGC) is creating new classes of phytocannabinoid pharmaceuticals with broad therapeutic applications for both humans and animals. IGC’s pipeline of patent pending therapeutics include treatments for pain, cachexia, neurologic disorders, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. IGC plans to enter clinical trials this year on its primary pipeline of four major therapeutics that address large market maladies. These trials include a potential cannabis-based blockbuster treatment for Alzheimer’s, America’s most ominous and expensive disease.

Alzheimer’s disease has no cure, no means of prevention and no long-term disease-modifying treatments. It’s a fatal, progressive brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills. It’s the third-leading cause of death in the U.S., following cancer and heart disease. More than 5.3 million Americans and over 46 million people worldwide are currently suffering from Alzheimer’s, and, frighteningly, this number is expected to triple within a few decades. Alzheimer’s is also the most expensive disease in the nation. In 2016, costs totaled $236 billion for the U.S., and global costs exceeded $600 billion. These figures will skyrocket if the disease continues unchecked.

Bolstering its portfolio of patent pending cannabis-based pharmaceuticals, IGC recently acquired exclusive rights to a novel THC-based treatment for Alzheimer’s disease from the University of South Florida (http://www.igcinc.us/alzheimers-disease/). Under the definitive license agreement with the university, IGC is the exclusive licensee of a patent filing for the use of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) as a potential therapeutic agent for Alzheimer’s. The patent claims discovery of a new pathway in which low doses of THC bind to amyloid beta plaques and prevent those plaques from aggregating on neurons, which is exactly what occurs in Alzheimer’s disease and causes cognitive decline.

This new pathway holds immense potential in treating Alzheimer’s, and IGC will own the rights to this unprecedented therapeutic pathway if the patent is granted and proven. Acquiring this patent further supports IGC in protecting its proprietary formulation IGC-AD1, which includes low-doses of THC and is intended to disrupt the buildup of amyloid beta plaques and alleviate some of the worst symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.

Several clinical studies are currently underway to address the ravages of Alzheimer’s, but later this year IGC will become the first and only company to utilize cannabis-based therapies for the treatment of the disease. Even though there are about a dozen publicly traded cannabis pharmaceutical stocks on the market, none have patent filings to a potential Alzheimer’s breakthrough.

Should IGC’s clinical studies show promise on Alzheimer’s or any of its primary pipeline of phytocannabinoid therapeutics, it could not only trigger a major shift in national medical marijuana policy but also dramatically impact the company’s market capitalization and stock price to the upside.

MissionIRNewsBreaks – SRAX (NASDAQ: SRAX) Announces New Tool Aimed at Extending the Reach of Facebook Posts

Internet advertising company SRAX (NASDAQ: SRAX) this morning announced the launch of a new SRAX Social tool for digital marketers and content owners designed to create and promote posts that extend beyond their Facebook page communities. This release is noteworthy as, according to industry reporting, organic reach for businesses on Facebook fell more than 50 percent last year. “Organic reach for brand content on Facebook has rapidly declined leading to strong demand to boost content on the social network and beyond,” Chris Miglino, CEO and chairman of SRAX, stated in the news release. “The ability to boost posts directly from SRAX Social provides digital marketers and content owners a new tool to take advantage of the paid media opportunities on Facebook, while managing social media efforts, most importantly, data across social channels and campaigns, through one platform.” The new tool is the first of many planned monetization opportunities to be integrated into SRAX’s social media management platform, SRAX Social, which leverages programmatic technology and big data to share, schedule and automate social media content.
