ChroMedX Corp. Awarded Two New Patents on Ultra-Filtration Technology

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – September 30, 2015) – ChroMedX Corp. (CSE: CHX) (OTCQB: MNLIF) (FSE: EIY2) (the “Company”), a developer of in vitro diagnostics and point-of-care testing (POCT) is pleased to announce that the Company has been awarded two additional Canadian patents on its Automated Ultra Filtration (AUF) technology.

These patents demonstrate the novelty, inventiveness and usefulness of the AUF technology, and are listed below:

1. CA No. 2,876,445 entitled “AUTOMATED ULTRA-FILTRATION SYSTEM”, and

Similar patents are pending in US, Europe and India.

The AUF is a potentially disruptive technology which will allow the preparation of samples for immunoassay of free therapeutic drugs and hormones to be done quickly as part of an automated system, replacing the current manual centrifugation preparation step.

The immunoassay market comprises approximately one-fourth of the IVD market and was estimated at $12.0 billion in 2014. Therapeutic drug monitoring alone was estimated to reach $335 million in 2014 while endocrine (hormone) testing was valued at $1,537 million in 2012 with a forecast 4.3% CAGR. Preliminary market study has shown that there are approximately 100,000 independent and hospital laboratories in the US, not including physicians’ offices, many of which could benefit from the AUF technology by reducing costs and reducing time required for sample processing.

The AUF patent application is a part of the Company’s suite of issued and pending patents covering all of its technologies. A complete list of the Company’s intellectual property can be found on the ChroMedX website at www.chromedx.com.

SEC Charges Executives for Defrauding Investors in Financial Fraud Scheme

Washington, D.C.–(Newsfile Corp. – September 30, 2015) – The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged two former executives of ContinuityX Solutions Inc. with fabricating nearly all of the company’s revenue and enriching themselves in the process.  Metamora, Illinois-based ContinuityX was a publicly traded company that claimed to sell Internet services to businesses.  The company is now in bankruptcy and its former CEO was criminally charged last year with six counts of wire fraud for conduct related to the SEC’s allegations.

The SEC’s complaint charges ContinuityX’s former CEO David P. Godwin and former chief financial officer Anthony G. Roth with engineering a scheme to inflate the company’s revenues.  ContinuityX reported revenues of $27.2 million from April 2011 to September 2012, but the complaint alleges that 99 percent of it came from fraudulent and fictitious sales.  Godwin and Roth used the allegedly fraudulent SEC filings to raise millions of dollars from investors in a private offering of ContinuityX securities, the complaint further alleges.

According to the complaint, Godwin and Roth enriched themselves through their allegedly fraudulent conduct, as Godwin received $1.3 million in compensation from ContinuityX and Roth received $351,800 in compensation and $456,098 of profits from sales of ContinuityX stock.

In one alleged scheme, Godwin and Roth approached companies to become a straw buyer of services from Internet providers, promising them they would not have to pay for the services and would receive a portion of the commissions paid to ContinuityX by the providers.  ContinuityX allegedly reported the commissions from the sham sales as revenue in its quarterly and annual reports.  In another scheme, Godwin is alleged to have fabricated service orders and to have caused ContinuityX to recognize revenue from these fake transactions.

“We allege that Godwin and Roth cheated investors out of millions of dollars, depicting ContinuityX as a successful Internet service sales company, when in reality it was a sham from beginning to end, complete with phony customers and fake contracts,” said Timothy L. Warren, Associate Director of SEC’s Chicago Regional Office.

The SEC’s complaint filed in federal court in Peoria, Illinois, charges Godwin and Roth with violating the antifraud provisions of the federal securities laws and related SEC rules.  The complaint also alleges that Godwin and Roth aided and abetted ContinuityX’s violations of the financial reporting, books and recordkeeping, and internal controls requirements of the federal securities laws.

The SEC’s complaint seeks return of allegedly ill-gotten gains with interest, financial penalties, and permanent injunctions against further violations of the securities laws.  The SEC also is seeking an order that would bar Godwin and Roth from acting as public company officers or directors and require them to reimburse ContinuityX for bonuses, incentive and equity-based compensation, and stock sale profits, pursuant to Section 304 of Sarbanes-Oxley Act. 

ContinuityX, in a separate administrative action, agreed to an order revoking the registration of its securities.

The SEC’s investigation, which is continuing, has been conducted by Justin M. Delfino and Ann M. Tushaus of the Chicago Regional Office under the supervision of Assistant Regional Directors Steven L. Klawans and Scott J. Hlavacek.  Daniel J. Hayes and Alyssa Qualls will lead the SEC’s litigation efforts.

PyroGenesis Canada Files Provisional Patent for Using Plasma Arc to Produce High Purity Silicon from Silica – Video News Alert on InvestmentPitch.com

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 30, 2015) – PyroGenesis Canada (TSXV: PYR) (OTCQB: PYRNF) has filed a provisional patent for a one step process using plasma arc for producing high purity silicon from silica. The PUREVAP™ is a proprietary process that uses a plasma arc within a vacuum furnace to produce high purity, metallurgical grade silicon, solar grade silicon and polysilicon from quartz.

InvestmentPitch.com has produced a “video news alert” which provides a brief overview of the company. If this link is not enabled, please visit http://ift.tt/1h0J9Vw and enter “PyroGenesis” in the search box.

If you cannot view the above video, please visit:

Pierre Carabin, Director of Engineering, stated: “We expect this process to not only have strategic significance with respect to Silicon, but will allow PyroGenesis to further develop distinct plasma processes geared to refining other high grade and valuable metals as well. Applying plasma to silica in this manner is another example of how PyroGenesis is finding high value niche markets for its plasma based processes.”

Peter Pascali, President and CEO, added: “Advances in solar energy and electronic applications have made silicon a strategic material in the 21st century. The world consumption of silicon metal in 2014 alone exceeded US$ 6 billion. Therefore, there is a significant need to finding ways to reduce the cost of producing strategic materials and PyroGenesis’ processes are poised to do just that.”

The company has a track record of building complex systems around its core plasma technology, allowing PyroGenesis to lead the way in providing innovative plasma torches, plasma waste processes, high-temperature metallurgical processes, and engineering services to the global marketplace.

With a team of experienced engineers, scientists and technicians working out of its Montreal office and 3,800 square metre manufacturing facility, the company provides engineering and manufacturing expertise, cutting-edge contract research, as well as turnkey process equipment packages to the defense, metallurgical, mining, advanced materials, (including 3D printing), oil & gas, and environmental industries.

The company posted revenues of $1,533,667 for the second quarter of fiscal year 2015 ended June 30, 2015, a decrease of 22% as compared to the $1,958,534 reported in the same period of fiscal 2014.

The revenues for the 2nd quarter of 2015 resulted primarily from the company’s progress on:
(i) work completed under phase 1 and phase 2 of the tactical mobile plasma system for destruction of chemical warfare agents,
(ii) the ongoing R&D projects incorporating novel plasma based technologies in the oil and gas industrial sector, and
(iii) work completed on the Company’s latest project to manufacture ten plasma based powder production systems for 3D printing.

The backlog at the end of August stood at $15.7 million, representing approximately 2.6 times the revenues recorded for the 2014 fiscal year.

In June, analyst Fadi Benjamin of Pope & Company, called the company a top pick, giving it a buy rating, assigning a price target of $1.00, a premium of 185% to the $0.35 price on June 11th, the day the report was issued.

The company currently trades at $0.265 and with 84.8 million shares outstanding, is capitalized at $22.5 million.
