Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – February 18, 2019) – Robert Friedland, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of High Power Exploration Inc. (HPX), and Eric Finlayson, President, announced today that the company has entered into lease and technical assistance agreements with Shandong Yantai Xintai Gold Mining Co., Ltd., (Xintai), a subsidiary of China National Gold Group Co., Ltd., one of China’s largest gold producers.

Under terms of the agreements signed in Yantai, Shandong today, HPX – a metals-focused exploration and development company that also invests in disruptive exploration technologies – will deploy its proprietary Typhoon survey technology at Xintai’s gold mine property for approximately three months, commencing in early 2019.

Typhoon is a high power, induced polarization and electromagnetic geophysical survey technology that can inject large amounts of energy much deeper underground than conventional technologies, penetrating through otherwise-opaque conductive or resistive cover to rapidly acquire survey data. Typhoon is deployed in conjunction with world-leading survey forward-modelling, QA/QC and data inversion software from HPX’s 94%-owned subsidiary Computational Geosciences.

HPX will receive lease and technical service fee payments for the operation of Typhoon, completion of a survey report based on acquired data, as well as assistance with exploration planning and drill-hole targeting. Should a gold resource discovery be made as a result of Xintai and HPX’s efforts, HPX will receive royalty payments as a portion of net profits generated from the discovered resource, throughout the entire mine life.

“We are pleased to be partnered with Shandong Yantai Xintai Gold Mining and China National Gold to explore for gold using our unique and proven Typhoon technology,” said Mr. Friedland.

“These agreements represent an opportunity for China’s leading gold companies to leverage cutting-edge technology to maximize the chances of discovery, and for HPX to create value for our stakeholders with a royalty-based business model for Typhoon.”

Mr. Finlayson added: “Typhoon has demonstrated its search capability in numerous countries around the world. Most recently, drill targets defined by Typhoon intersected semi-massive nickel and copper sulphides at Sama Resources’ Yepleu Project in Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa.

“We look forward to demonstrating our team’s discovery track record and expertise in exploration survey planning, data acquisition and interpretation.”

Tycon Capital When Investing in Multi Family Projects in Vancouver Bigger is Not Always Better

By Tycon Capital

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 17, 2019 / Currently there are a lot of real estate developers in Vancouver seeking funding for their large multifamily apartment projects. While at first glance bigger projects might seem better, that isn’t really the case when developing multifamily property in Vancouver.

How mid rise multifamily projects are developed

Mid rise apartment buildings are those that are 4 to 8 stories high with a total of between 40 and 120 units. The development of mid rise multifamily buildings in Vancouver begins by locating and assembling several parcels of adjacent single-family lots that can accommodate the bigger building footprint that a mid rise building requires.

After the developer has purchased and assembled the lots to build on, engineers and architects must design a building that matches the site and doesn’t raise objection from the neighborhood residents. Then permits must be obtained, construction begins, and after 5 years or more the project is ready for occupancy.

When seeking funding for new multifamily projects developers pitch several common perceived advantages of larger buildings to investors: 1) There is investor demand in the market for mid rise property because so many projects are being developed, 2) Individual units are easier to sell or lease because of the larger quantity and variety, 3) People like living in bigger apartment projects so there will never be a lack of demand for the units.

Major risks of developing mid rise apartment buildings

Unfortunately, these perceived advantages of bigger apartment buildings end up being overly optimistic and understate the risks involved in developing mid rise multifamily projects because of the multi-year development time frame and the expense involved, real estate developers building mid rise projects attempt to collect investor funds up front. While this provides working capital for the developer, it’s risky for the investor because money is being sunk into a project that the developer doesn’t have complete control of.

There are several cons to developing mid rise apartment buildings, making these projects suitable only for investors willing to accept an extremely high level of risk:

  • Developers seek capital for projects whose land they don’t currently own, where due diligence hasn’t been completed, and plans and permitting have not been approved by the city
  • Contiguous single-family parcels are extremely difficult to locate and are usually found only in the less desirable areas of Vancouver or in locations where the market is already saturated
  • Local communities often object to the construction of a mid rise building because these projects don’t match the existing character of the neighborhood
  • Investors will not begin to see a return for at least 5 years due to the extremely long timeframe needed to develop a mid rise multifamily project
  • A lot can change during the 5-year development time for a mid rise building, especially in a dynamic city like Vancouver – a project that appears to make sense today could easily end up being a money-losing property five years from now

However the biggest risk for investors in this type of project is that developers must pre-sell at least 50% of their units to obtain construction financing from most lenders. Historically these off plan units have been sold to overseas investors however due to recent government policies to curb speculation these funding sources have diminished. If this quota is not met the project will hang in limbo leaving all involved high and dry.

As for the sales pitch that mid rise developers make to investors about people liking bigger apartment building living? That isn’t exactly true, as a recent article in the Vancouver Sun explains in detail.

Why smaller multifamily projects make more financial sense

Developing smaller multifamily projects in Vancouver follows the value-add investment strategy. These projects provide high net worth investors with a balance of risk and reward that preserves and grows investment capital while offering double-digit ROIs.

The team at Tycon Capital has years of development success with nearly a dozen profitable multifamily projects completed for our investors. There are several key advantages to investing in one of our joint venture multifamily projects in Vancouver:

  • Investment capital is accepted only after due diligence has been completed, building sites have been acquired, and plans have been submitted for approval
  • Established banking relationships allow Windsor to arrange project financing without a presale requirement, compared to larger mid rise projects that require a certain percentage of presales before banks will make a loan
  • Multifamily development projects from Tycon Capital and their partner JC Tycon Developments only take 2-3 years to complete, providing investors with a higher ROI and the option to reinvest funds in future projects to compound returns even further

Tycon Capital is keenly aware of the competition and the saturated market in many parts of Vancouver. Our in-depth knowledge and portfolio of successful multifamily projects allows us to seek untapped opportunities, meet pent up market demand, and identify neighborhoods in Vancouver that are undeveloped.

By maintaining the single-family character of the neighborhoods we build in, we are increasing density and helping Vancouver grow in a very positive way for the community and a very profitable way for our investors.

ALICORP S.A.A.: Alicorp Fourth Quarter 2018 Consolidated Financial Statements

By ALICORP S.A.A.

LIMA, PERU / ACCESSWIRE / February 17, 2019 / Alicorp S.A.A. (”the Company” or ”Alicorp”) (BVL: ALICORC1 and ALICORI1) announced today its unaudited financial results corresponding to the Fourth Quarter 2018 (Q4 18′). Financial figures are reported on a consolidated basis and are in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (”IFRS”) in nominal Peruvian Soles, based on the following statements, which should be read in conjunction with the Financial Statements and Notes to the Financial Statements published at the Peruvian Securities and Exchange Commission (Superintendencia del Mercado de Valores – SMV). Consolidated statements include i) the financial results of the Bolivian acquired companies during 2018 (”Industrias de Aceite S.A.” or ”Fino” and ”Sociedad Aceitera del Oriente S.R.L” or ”SAO”) and the accounting adjustment that arose from both acquisitions’ goodwill recording, and ii) the effect of the application of the International Accounting Standard 29 (or IAS 29, Financial Reporting in Hyperinflationary Economies) in Argentina.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

1. This quarter’s results were strongly affected by 2 accounting non-cash adjustments: i) the effect of recording the acquisition of Fino and SAO using the acquisition method, as established in IFRS 3 ”Business combinations”, and ii) the application of International Accounting Standard 29 in Argentina as it was categorized as a hyperinflationary economy. The first adjustment related to the acquisition of Fino and SAO affected various Income Statement lines such as Cost of Goods Sold (COGS), Depreciation, Financial expenses and Taxes. Moreover, it reduced Gross Profit in S/ 35 million, Operative Income in S/ 46 million, EBITDA in S/ 24 million, and Net Profit in S/ 32 million. The second adjustment restated financial statements to address the changes in the general purchasing power of the Argentinean peso, affecting all lines of the Income Statement from Revenue to Net Profit. It reduced Gross Profit in S/ 31 million, Operative Income in S/ 23 million, and EBITDA in S/ 16 million while it increased Net Profit in S/ 12 million. Onwards, when referring to the exclusion of Fino, SAO and the IAS 29 application these adjustments should not be consider.

2. Consolidated Revenue amounted to S/ 2,247 million (+23.2% YoY), while Volume reached 707 thousand tons (+44.0% YoY). Excluding Fino, SAO and the IAS 29 application, Revenue amounted to S/ 1,898 million (+4.0% YoY), while Volume reached 517 thousand tons (+5.2% YoY). The leading contributors to the increase in Revenue and Volume, besides Fino and SAO, were the following businesses: i) Consumer Goods Peru, growing 9.7% YoY in Revenue and 7.2% YoY in Volume, ii) B2B, rising 8.8% YoY and 10.5% YoY in Revenue and Volume, respectively, and iii) Aquaculture, which increased 3.2% YoY increase in Revenue and 1.1% YoY in Volume.

3. During Q4 18′, Revenue from the Consumer Goods Peru business reached S/733 million (+9.7% YoY) while Volume reached 147 thousand tons (+7.2% YoY). Growth is underpinned by strategy for each portfolio segment, constant product and brand innovation, and the value go-to-market channel. Furthermore, this business continues growing through our core categories such as Laundry Detergents (+13.5% YoY), Canned tuna (+115.2% YoY), Cookies & crackers (+10.8% YoY), Sauces (+11.2% YoY), and Edible Oils (+3.6% YoY). Additionally, it is relevant to remark that our commercial strategy resulted in an equal or a higher volume share in 15 out of our 19 categories (including subcategories).

4. Regarding product innovation, during Q4 18′ the Company launched/revamped 20 products (8 in Consumer Goods Peru, 5 in Consumer Goods International, 4 in B2B and 3 in Aquaculture). The most relevant in the Consumer Goods Peru business were the following: i) a new Dishwashing liquid soap under the ”Marsella” brand, entering into a new category, ii) in the Pasta category, the new ”Maestra” line, under the “Don Vittorio” brand, and iii) in the Premix category, a new cookie premix under the ”Blanca Flor” brand. In the Consumer Goods International division, we launched 5 products: i) In Brazil, we launched two new formats of the ”Plusbelle” hair cream, ii) in Ecuador, a new tomato sauce under the ”Don Vittorio” brand, and a new ”Detox” shampoo variety under the ”Plusbelle” brand, and iii) in Bolivia, a new 520 gr format of the ”Bolivar” detergent. In B2B, the most important launches were the following: i) in the Food Service platform, the new ”Alpesa” table salt and ii) in the Bakery platform, the new ”Regia” sugar. Finally, in the Aquaculture business, we launched a new shrimp feed diet called ”Nicovita Origin” aiming to strengthen the firsts stages of shrimp farming cycle.

5. Gross Profit reached S/ 503 million (-1.0% YoY) while Gross Margin decreased by 5.5 p.p. YoY to 22.4%. Excluding Fino, SAO and the IAS 29 application, Gross Profit amounted to S/ 521 million (+2.6% YoY), while Gross Margin decreased 0.4 p.p. to 27.5%. Excluding Fino, SAO and the IAS 29 application, the margin decrease was mainly explained by higher raw material prices in the Consumer Goods International (Brazil), B2B and the Aquaculture businesses, coupled with a revenue mix towards value products. Nevertheless, we managed to partially offset the increase in raw material prices, through efficiencies within other inputs and transformation costs as packages, manufacturing, logistic, among others. These costs, excluding Fino and SAO and the IAS 29 application, represented 14.9% of Total Revenue in Q4 17′ and 11.6% in Q4 18′, a 3.3 p.p. decrease.

6. EBITDA amounted to S/ 228 million (+1.4% YoY) while EBITDA Margin reached 10.2%, a decrease of 2.2 p.p. compared to Q4 17′. Excluding Fino, SAO and the IAS 29 application, EBITDA amounted to S/ 265 million (+17.8% YoY) while EBITDA Margin was 14.0% (+1.7 p.p. YoY).

7. Consequently, Net Income totaled S/ 92 million during Q4 18′, (-26.3% YoY), while Net Margin reached 4.1%, (-2.7 p.p. YoY). Earnings per Share (EPS) decreased from S/ 0.148 in Q4 17′ to S/ 0.106 in Q4 18′. Excluding Fino, SAO, and the IAS 29 application, Net Income amounted to S/ 131 million, while Net Margin reached 6.9%. Earnings per Share (EPS) increased from S/ 0.148 in Q4 17′ to S/ 0.155 in Q4 18′ (+31.0% YoY).

8. Cash flow from Operations for 2018 was S/ 874 million, S/ 9 million lower than the figure generated in 2017. The lower cash flow was explained by the working capital efficiencies gained during 2016 and 2017 after the deployment of our efficiency program. Thus, improvements in Working Capital, organically, are marginal. Cash Flow used in Investing Operations during 2018 was S/ -1,203 million, compared to S/ -223 million during 2017 explained by Fino and SAO acquisitions which amounted to S/ 1,101 million, while CAPEX investments as of December 2018 were S/ 222 million.

9. As of December 2018, Total Debt increased by S/ 1,095 million compared to December 2017, reaching S/ 3,037 million mainly reflecting the leverage undertaken for the Fino and SAO acquisitions. Net Debt-to-EBITDA ratio increased from 1.0x as of December 2017 to 2.1x as of December 2018.

How These Entrepreneurs Are Crushing The Competition In Their Markets

By SV Advisory Group

DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / February 17, 2019 / In the world of ever changing markets you have to be able to move fast and adapt in order to stay on top. There are many factors that play out when it comes to being successful in your specific niche. A few simple ways to stay ahead of the competition is by constantly brainstorming new ideas to grow, creating new strategies to become more efficient, and keeping track of your audience. Never get too comfortable, that is how businesses stop growing and fail because everyone else around them is expanding.

Here is how a few entrepreneurs are staying ahead of the game:

Razvan Romanescu

Razvan Romanescu is not someone that you hear much about online but is certainly a trailblazer in the social media community. He’s the Co-Founder of memes.com & guff.com. This solidifies him as the leader in meme distribution with over a combined 60 million followers on social media. You may follow @memes across FB / IG. Aside from Memes, Razvan personally owns and operates the #1 vertically focused female network on social media. Some of his accounts include @style @females and @girls, to name a few. He has been very active in e-commerce making significant eight-figure revenues as well as entering the retail market for various products. He recently founded a new online gaming company that will be launching in 2019.

Aidan J. Cole

Aidan J. Cole currently leads growth initiatives for Gravity Group, a San Francisco based tech company focused on enriching culture & community through world-class technology. Their flagship product, Dil Mil, is a mobile dating app exclusively for the South Asian community. Dil Mil has generated over 10 million matches and helped thousands of people get married.

Prior to joining Gravity Group, Aidan co-founded an eCommerce brand that generated over $5 million in revenue within its first five months of operation with consistent growth month after month. Aidan has extensive experience in building influence on social media and has helped entertainers like Flo Rida and athletes like Zachary Claman De Melo do so as well.

”Stay focused on hitting your goals, failing fast and learning as much as you can. Find individuals within your industry that actually matter and study them. One thing you must first learn is how to identify someone that has substance, then earn their respect. I’ll give you a hint: they’re usually the quiet ones that listen when someone speaks, you’re unsure as to how wealthy they actually are, they probably rarely post on their social accounts and you can tell they’re typically 10 steps ahead of you. Shut up and listen to them.”

Jeremy Haynes

Jeremy Haynes, CEO/Founder of Megalodon Marketing he grew up in Ohio and used to sell Directv and cell phones in CostCo.

Erus Energy Offers More Residential Solutions For Solar Energy Nationwide

With solar & energy management systems designed to fit the lives of homeowners nationwide, Erus Energy now offers a variety of options for those looking to go solar.

SAN ANTONIO, TX, February 16, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — The decision to invest in a solar and energy management system for a home involves several factors. Most homeowners look at upfront costs, potential volume of power that can be generated, leasing options vs. purchase, and energy bill savings. Every home and property is different, with different variables affecting how the system will be designed, and how much power it will produce.

That’s why the solar experts at Erus Energy know the ins and outs of all of these factors. They have helped thousands of customers nationwide take advantage of clean, renewable energy, and save a lot on their energy bills by reducing, producing and monitoring their energy.

Solar solutions reduce energy waste

Reducing energy waste in a home can make a considerable difference in energy costs and usage. This step is an important part of home energy management. It is done by implementing energy efficient solutions into the home and making it run more efficiently. Beyond solar panel installation and usage, energy efficient solutions include:

– LED light bulbs
– Aeroseal. This product seals your ducts from the inside to make heating and cooling your home more efficient which in turn lowers your energy usage.
– Smart Home solutions including programmable thermostats, load controllers, and other solutions to improve the comfort in your home.

Financial optons for getting solar panels installed

Using solar panels produces free, clean energy from the most efficient source – the sun. Going solar not only protects against rising utility rates and lowers energy bills, but is an investment that gives great returns over a long period of time. To make the process of installing solar panels more feasible for a homeowner at any end of the economic spectrum, Erus Energy now offers multiple financial options.

Purchasing: It’s possible to own your own system and take advantage of the best way to go solar – become energy independent. The highest cost benefit comes from owning the system, but also requires more upfront funding. However, Erus Energy will help homeowners qualify for Federal Tax Incentives through the Solar Tax Credit.

Leasing: Leasing is the most budget-friendly option for getting solar for a home or property. With predictable monthly rates, lease payments can be locked in with no increase in rates. Homeowners also continue to save on their energy costs each month, and they will see their energy bills begin to get lower over time. There is normally no upfront cost for leasing a solar energy system.

Solar PPA (Power Purchase Agreement): This is another great option to go solar while saving money on energy costs. Homeowners pay little or no upfront costs and instead purchase the power generated by their solar energy system rather than from their power company. Their monthly electric bill is lower, and rates are locked in for years to come, giving predictable solar electricity costs.

Erus Energy now has more than 8000 solar panel installations in five states, servicing such major cities as Tampa, Phoenix, Albuquerque, San Antonio, and Columbia SC, with more states launching in the near future.

Erus Energy is the industry leader in home solar energy systems, with over 8,000 systems installed since 2009 and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Erus is a fully integrated alternative energy company, offering financing, installation, ongoing maintenance, and service for solar panels to both commercial and residential customers in multiple markets across the US.
