Valens Groworks Announces Strategic Collaboration

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 22, 2017) – Valens GroWorks Corp. (CSE: VGW) (the “Company” or “Valens“) and its wholly-owned subsidiary Supra THC Services Inc. (“Supra“) are pleased to announce a collaboration between Supra and Thermo Fisher Scientific (Mississauga) Inc. to develop a “Centre of Excellence in Plant Based Medicine Analytics” centered in Kelowna, British Columbia. This agreement is the first of its kind between a Canadian cannabis company and a world leader in Health Science services, with an ability to deliver innovative technologies, purchasing convenience and comprehensive services to this emerging market.

Supra’s operations are located in the Company’s state-of-the-art 17,000 sq ft Kelowna facility, currently undergoing modifications ahead of a significant expansion. Supra will utilize a suite of Thermo Fisher Scientific sector-leading advanced analytical instrumentation to provide analytical services, research and development, forensic analysis and support for clinical trials as well as being a demonstration and training site for Thermo Fisher Scientific clients and third parties involved in this rapidly evolving sector. It will also be used as a regional resource center for universities and companies.

Dr. Rob O’Brien, CEO and Chief Science Officer of Supra THC Services Inc. stated; “There are many plants such as Cannabis that contain active ingredients which could be effective treatments for disease or provide critical health improvements. However, conducting proper clinical trials with materials that contain many active ingredients is challenging, particularly if the effective absorbed dose can vary significantly depending on how the material is consumed. For example, the effectiveness of absorption of active ingredients contained in an oil carrier is much different if that oil is placed under the patients tongue, then if the oil, or edible, is swallowed. To measure the amount of active ingredients and metabolites in blood, urine, hair and saliva, advanced instrumentation and a team of highly qualified personal is essential. With the Supra THC Services team and advanced instrumentation from Thermo Fisher Scientific, many significant advances are expected.”

Luc Dionne, Canadian Sales Manager with Thermo Fisher Scientific (Mississauga) Inc., states We welcome the opportunity to work with Dr. Rob O’Brien and the Supra THC Services team, an organization that conducts testing activities in plant based medicine. Dr. O’Brien has an extensive background in analytical chemistry and is a recognized authority in scientific circles. Dr. O’Brien has worked closely with Thermo Fisher Scientific in the past using several of our market leading technologies to successfully perform testing on natural products, pharmaceutical formulations and environmental samples. We are delighted that his team has selected Thermo Fisher Scientific‘s cost effective analytical testing solutions to promote the advancement of testing protocols to meet the rigorous and regulatory requirements of this market segment.

Opawica Explorations Inc. Cancels Private Placement and Demobilizes Drill Program at Bazooka Property, Quebec

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 22, 2017) – Opawica Explorations Inc. (TSXV: OPW) (the “Company”) announces that the proposed private placement (the “Offering”) announced on August 15, 2017 and September 11, 2017 will not proceed at this time due to an abatement of interest stemming from declining gold prices, related weakness in the junior resource sector, and the Company’s current share structure.

In the absence of the Offering, the Company has demobilized its drill program at the Bazooka property, near Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, that it announced on August 15, 2017. The proposed drill program will not proceed at this time.

There is significant activity in the immediate area of Opawica’s Bazooka property. Richmont Mines Inc. announced on September 11, 2017 that it is selling its Wasamac gold property, situated on Opawica’s north western border, to Monarques Gold Corporation. On September 17, 2017, Yorbeau Resources Inc. (“Yorbeau”) announced that Kinross Gold Corporation (“Kinross”) has completed over 24,000 metres of drilling on the Rouyn Property that is optioned by Kinross. The Rouyn Property is contiguous to the eastern border of Opawica’s Bazooka property and the Company’s McWatters property adjoins the eastern border of Yorbeau’s Rouyn property and Granada Gold Mines Inc.’s land holdings.

The Company believes that the Bazooka and McWatters properties are excellent exploration prospects and are well positioned, covering about seven kilometres of the Cadillac Larder Lake Break.

Stonegate Capital Partners Updates Coverage on Deep Down, Inc. (DPDW)

By Stonegate Capital Partners

DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / September 22, 2017 / Deep Down, Inc. (OTCQX: DPDW):

Company Description

Deep Down, Inc. (OTCQX: DPDW) is an oilfield services company specializing in complex deepwater and ultra-deepwater oil production, distribution system, and support services. Its services and technological solutions include providing distribution with installation support, engineering services, umbilical terminations, loose-tube steel flying leads, ROVs, and related services along with marine automation, monitoring and control systems, and the design and fabrication of large onshore and offshore carousel systems. It also supports subsea installation, commissioning, and maintenance projects through specialized, highly experienced service teams and engineered technological solutions.


Deep Down, Inc. provides innovative concepts of subsea distribution systems with specialization in engineering services, installation management, custom fabrication, site integration testing, and inspection and repair of equipment for the subsea oil and gas industry.

  • The Company focuses on complex ultra-deepwater oil production support services and products. Importantly, Deep Down is focused on supporting clients on the completion side vs. drilling.
  • Deep Down provides support for subsea engineering, installation, and maintenance projects through specialized, highly experienced service teams and engineered technological solutions. We note that the Company is more service-oriented, but also produces some specialized products such as steel flying leads.
  • One of DPDW’s core competencies is its ability to collaborate with oil and gas operators, installation contractors and subsea equipment manufacturers to determine the fastest, safest, and most cost-effective solutions to the full spectrum of complex issues that arise in the Company’s industry.
  • While the Company has a diversified base of customers that include operators, installation contractors, and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), Deep Down has recently made significant inroads with majors.
  • Global spending on subsea production systems is due to reach $65B between 2015 and 2020, a 56% increase from the previous period.
  • The Company reported a backlog of approximately $11M as of Q217, and, while management has discussed a reduction in backlog from historic highs, DPDW continued to report one of its strongest balance sheets at 6/30/17 and also increasing interest in services for non-oil and gas applications, such as the development of deepwater technologies for other industries.
  • Deep Down is focused on margin improvement. For Q217, the Company reported gross margins of approximately 50%, and in Q216 it was 33%. The Company believes it can continue these improved gross margins longer-term.
  • In early 2016, the Company sold its manufacturing facility in Channelview, TX, for $3.8M, allowing DPDW to pay off its only debt of $2.7M and significantly strengthening its balance sheet. Additionally, due to the sale of Channelview and improved efficiency in its remaining facility, the Company has been seeing cost savings of~$35K to $45K/month.
  • Significant upside exists if DPDW can sell or rent two umbilical carousels currently being stored. Expected sale proceeds could generate several million in profit. Alternatively, long-term rental income on a carousel could be significant with high gross margins.

We employ a scenario analysis using multiple relative valuation frameworks. The details are on page 8, and all scenarios show upside. We also note that the current market capitalization of approximately $13.9M is significantly less than the Company’s tangible net worth of $23.4M, with $7.2M in cash on its balance sheet as of Q217.

Pharmaceutical Company Paying Penalty for Misleading Investors About Sales Metric

Washington D.C.–(Newsfile Corp. – September 22, 2017) – The Securities and Exchange Commission today filed fraud charges against a Massachusetts-based biopharmaceutical company that exaggerated how many new patients actually filled prescriptions for an expensive drug that was its sole source of revenue.

Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, now a subsidiary of Novelion Therapeutics, has agreed to pay a $4.1 million penalty to settle the charges that it misled investors on multiple occasions in 2013. The SEC’s complaint alleges that Aegerion told investors that the number of unfilled prescriptions for Juxtapid was not material and the “vast majority” of patients receiving prescriptions ultimately purchased the drug. The SEC alleges that Aegerion’s records reflect that it was actually around 50 percent of prescriptions that resulted in actual drug purchases.

“By no one’s math is 50 percent a vast majority,” said Paul Levenson, Director of the SEC’s Boston Regional Office. “When companies publicly discuss their financial data, they must be truthful. Whether they supply hard numbers or give broader descriptions, they cannot mislead investors.”

According to the SEC’s complaint, Juxtapid is used to treat a rare and potentially life-threatening genetic condition that causes extremely high cholesterol. In 2013 and 2014, it was priced at approximately $250,000 to $300,000 annually per patient. Following Juxtapid’s introduction in 2013, investors and investment analysts had little financial data to estimate Aegerion’s future revenues from sales of the drug.

Aegerion allegedly provided details on the number of Juxtapid prescriptions during several subsequent earnings calls, but this data alone was insufficient for analysts and investors trying to forecast the company’s future revenues because only prescriptions that were actually filled “converted” into sales. According to the SEC’s complaint, it wasn’t until October 2014 that Aegerion disclosed to investors that the conversion rate was actually in the range of 50 to 60 percent. But Aegerion allegedly failed to reveal to investors even then that the conversion rate had hovered around 50 percent since 2013.

The SEC’s complaint, filed in federal court in Boston, charges Aegerion with violating Sections 17(a)(2) and (3) of the Securities Act of 1933. Aegerion agreed to the settlement without admitting or denying the allegations. The settlement is subject to court approval.

The SEC’s investigation, which is continuing, is being conducted by Emily R. Holness, Dawn A. Edick, Ruth Anne Heselbarth, Rachel Hershfang, Marc Jones, and Amy Gwiazda of the Boston office. The SEC appreciates the assistance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

SwitzerCultCreative Represents Jay Miron Furniture

Unique pieces and artistic juxtaposition are inspiration anchors of this partnership

VANCOUVER, BC, September 22, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — SwitzerCultCreative now officially represents Jay Miron Furniture. Miron, a retired Canadian BMX athlete who holds multiple world championship and X Games titles and former owner of MacNeil Bikes has made the transition into a new career, designing and building unique furniture pieces.

SwitzerCultCreative’s Partner and Showroom Manager, Adam Bellas said, “It’s an honour to represent Jay Miron’s pieces. His eye for creating unique design combined with his exceptional quality of work sets the bar high. Having his experience as an athlete shows in the passion he demonstrates for his craft.”

Miron’s athletic past has been legendary. In his seventeen-year professional career he won six world championship titles, nine X Games medals and he invented over thirty unique moves including the first ever double back flip on a bicycle. His inspired action has shown through his artistic expression as he works with materials with the same passion and precision that he had shown on the bike. The juxtaposition of art meets creativity with a dose of technique makes his furniture offerings unique. Recently, it has been confirmed that BMX Freestyle will be a sport in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

“I’m super excited to be working with SwitzerCultCreative. Their commitment to quality and their focus on representing high-level designers and craftsmen align perfectly with my goals and the furniture I produce. I’m looking forward to a long and successful partnership.” – Jay Miron

The Orca Chair from Miron’s debut collection will be on display at the upcoming IDS Vancouver from September 28 to October 1.

About Jay Miron Furniture: I design and build bespoke furniture in Vancouver, Canada. Designing and building furniture is more than a job or a career to me. It’s a way of life. I’m constantly exploring new ideas and taking inspiration from everything around me. I love the creativity of designing, the physicality of working the wood by hand, and the challenge of merging the two to make a functional and beautiful piece. High-level woodworking takes discipline. The skills must be learned from a master and constantly worked at to improve. You can often follow the line of teachers back several generations. I am grateful to have received my training under Robert VanNorman, learning the Krenovian style of woodworking at his Inside Passage School of Fine Cabinetmaking. Robert learned this style from the legendary James Krenov, who himself studied under the great Carl Malmsten. I am proud of the knowledge I have received, passed down from these great masters, and work hard every day to further and continue their legacy. I have a huge appreciation for wood and the trees that supply it. Trees are one of the earth’s most important natural resources; they provide the air we breathe, clean our air and water, provide habitat for countless animal species, prevent soil erosion, provide food, cool us with shade, and generally make our world a more beautiful place. Because my craft is founded in this invaluable resource I feel a huge responsibility to do the very best work I can in a sustainable fashion.

On top of my technical training as a furniture maker, I’m currently working toward an education in Interior Design. This has been advantageous in helping me work with clients, architects, and designers to place my furniture within an overall concept of a space.
