Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical (OTCBB:AEMD) Note: Multiple Shots on Goal - A Therapeutic Strategy to Address Infectious Disease & Cancer

SAN DIEGO - February 28, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) - Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD), today released the following note authored by its Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce.


I recently attended a healthcare related event that featured a panel discussion comprised of life science bankers and venture capitalists. While members of this panel often had differing viewpoints, they did mutually agree they were interested in emerging therapeutic candidates that provided more than one "shot on goal," meaning the possibility of a single therapy that could address more than one disease indication.
In the case of the Aethlon Hemopurifier®, we have created a therapeutic filtration device that selectively captures a broad-spectrum of disease promoting particles from circulation without eliminating blood components required for health. However, instead of immobilizing an antibody or agent that specifically binds to a single pathogen, we made the bold decision to deploy the capabilities of a lectin affinity agent that binds to a unique structure evolved and shared by viruses and cancer as a survival mechanism that allows disease progression to continue below the surveillance of the immune system. In the treatment of Hepatitis C virus (HCV), we have demonstrated that our Hemopurifier® can eliminate the presence of HCV in as little a seven days when utilized in combination with interferon-based therapy. Short-term administration of the same device has reduced viral load by greater than 90% in an HIV-AIDS dialysis patient who was not receiving any form of antiviral drug therapy. Additionally, government and non-government research organizations have demonstrated the Hemopurifier® captures a wide range of bioterror and pandemic threats. In regards to cancer, the same Hemopurifier® deployed in infectious disease studies has emerged to be the first therapeutic strategy to address tumor-secreted exosomes. Tumor-secreted exosomes are a vital therapeutic target as they have recently been discovered to be immunosuppressive and play significant role in seeding the creation and spread of cancer metastasis.
So, how is it possible that one therapy can address a breadth of disease conditions? Dr. Annette Marleau, our Director of Tumor Immunology provides the following summary review for interested parties, including medical and non-medical industry shareholders of Aethlon Medical:
Intriguingly, there are converging biological mechanisms underlying viral infections and cancer, despite the fact that these are distinct categories of disease that are typically addressed with different therapies. Common disease processes in infections and cancer include the modalities by which disease is spread and the involvement of the immune system. The latter point stems from the fact that both tumor cells and infectious pathogens are viewed as "foreign invaders" by the immune system. In response, diseased cells have evolved tactics for manipulating the immune system to their advantage in order to propagate disease. One of the key pathogenic maneuvers employed by viruses and tumors is the systemic distribution of disease-mediating particles that spread molecular information from diseased cells to healthy cells.
Of relevance to our Hemopurifier® is the observation that critical disease-mediating particles in many viral infections and cancer display high-mannose glycoproteins on their surfaces. These surface features arise during the process of glycosylation, whereby carbohydrate residues such as mannose are tagged onto proteins to ensure proper protein assembly and function in healthy cells. Not surprisingly, this process becomes perturbed in several disease conditions, thereby changing the biologic functions of proteins. To define the glycoprotein signatures associated with specific disease conditions, researchers have applied panels of carbohydrate-binding proteins (lectins) to determine the relative compositions of specific carbohydrate residues in cellular material. Extrapolating on the use lectins as research reagents for biomarker discovery, our device platform leverages the specificity of lectins for glycoprotein-coated particles for therapeutic affinity capture.
Among the spectrum of targets of the Hemopurifier® are enveloped viruses, a broad group of infectious pathogens that are enriched for high-mannose glycoproteins on their outer surfaces. The envelope glycoproteins have well-recognized roles in viral attachment and integration into host cells (1). Scientific studies have demonstrated that lectins have potent anti-viral activity by virtue of their interference with the functions of envelope glycoproteins. Indeed, the current version of the Hemopurifier® has been demonstrated to capture a spectrum of enveloped viruses including HIV, Dengue virus, orthopoxviruses (vaccinia and monkeypox), influenza viruses (H5N1 bird flu, 1918 Spanish flu), and Ebola.
In addition to addressing viral infections, the Hemopurifier also captures cancer-derived exosomes that also display high-mannose glycoproteins on their outer surfaces (2). Exosomes are membranous nanovesicles secreted by diverse tumor types that act as inter-cellular messengers to spread oncogenic signals. Evidence is emerging that cancer exosomes are involved in practically every aspect of malignancy, including apoptosis of immune cells, tissue invasion, angiogenesis, metastases and resistance to therapeutic drugs. The genomic and proteomic content of exosomes, as well as the exosome load in the circulation, are known to correlate with tumor stage and metastasis, suggesting that exosomes can serve as disease biomarkers (3,4). Accordingly, exosomes have emerged as critical targets in cancer care, and there is currently an unmet need for means of targeting these nanovesicles therapeutically.
Based on their common glycoprotein signatures, the biogenesis of virions and exosomes has been suggested to share a conserved evolutionary pathway (5). These nano-sized particles (both in the 50-300 nm range) use their heavily glycosylated surfaces for entry into target cells, where virions and exosomes transfer pathogenic information in the form of proteins and/or genetic material. These particles also hijack the intracellular machinery to affect cell growth and survival pathways, while also promoting the formation of more disease-mediating particles. Indeed, newly generated virions and exosomes are both secreted by budding off from the plasma membrane of diseased cells, during which time it is believed they inherit glycoprotein-rich membrane components (6). Thus, the fields of viral and cancer immunology converge mechanistically at the level of the glycoprotein "fingerprints" on key disease-mediating particles.
The intersection of the pathways exploited by virions and exosomes is exemplified by the ability of certain viruses to package their infectious material into exosomes. For example, HIV-infected cells secrete exosomes containing Nef or "Negative Factor", an abundant HIV protein that induces death of CD4+ T cells, a hallmark of AIDS (7). Viruses and exosomes can therefore act as co-dependent entities for spreading infection and impeding host immunity. A validation study conducted by our collaborators at the Morehouse School of Medicine revealed that the Hemopurifier® captures NEF exosomes and therefore holds promise as an anti-viral strategy for co-targeting both Nef exosomes and HIV virions in circulation.
Collectively, these lines of evidence provide a compelling scientific rationale for why the Hemopurifier® is a candidate broad-spectrum countermeasure against both viral pathogens and cancer. In both of these clinical scenarios, we propose to advance the Hemopurifier as an adjunct to standard of care therapies for reducing the systemic burden of disease-mediating particles and unmasking the native immune response in patients.

About The Aethlon Hemopurifier®
The Aethlon Hemopurifier® is a first-in-class medical device that selectively targets the rapid clearance of infectious viral pathogens and immunosuppressive proteins from the entire circulatory system. In the treatment of Hepatitis C virus (HCV), human studies have demonstrated that Hemopurifier® therapy may improve immediate, rapid and sustained virologic response rates when administered in the first few days of standard-of-care drug therapy. In addition to accelerating viral load depletion, post-treatment analysis of the Hemopurifier® has documented the capture of up to 300 billion HCV copies of HCV during a single six-hour treatment. Access to Hemopurifier® therapy is available on a compassionate-use basis through the Medanta Medicity Institute (Medicity), a leading center for medical tourism in India. The Medicity is offering treatment access to infected individuals who previously failed or subsequently relapsed standard-of-care drug regimens. The Hemopurifier® is also being offered as a salvage therapy to infected individuals who suffer a viral breakthrough during standard-of-care therapy. U.S. studies of the Hemopurifier® are currently pending approval of an IDE submitted to FDA.
The Aethlon Hemopurifier® and Cancer
In addition to the opportunity to address a broad-spectrum of infectious viral pathogens, the Hemopurifier® has been discovered to capture tumor-derived exosomes underlying several forms of cancer. Tumor-derived exosomes have recently emerged to be a vital therapeutic target in cancer care. These microvesicular particles suppress the immune response in cancer patients through apoptosis of immune cells and their quantity in circulation correlates directly with disease progression. Beyond possessing immunosuppressive properties, tumor-derived exosomes facilitate tumor growth, metastasis, and the development of drug resistance. By addressing this unmet medical need, the Hemopurifier® is positioned as an adjunct to improve established cancer treatment regimens.

Mining Stock News: SilverCrest (TSX.V: SVL) (NYSE MKT: SVLC) Continues to Expand Santa Elena Deposit

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - February 26, 2013 (Investorideas.com Mining Stocks Newswire) SilverCrest Mines Inc. (TSX.V:SVL) ( NYSE MKT: SVLC) (CW5.F) ("SilverCrest" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results of further delineation drilling at the Santa Elena Mine in Sonora, Mexico. One hundred and eleven holes of a revised planned 114 holes have been completed to re-categorize Indicated and Inferred Resources to Probable Reserves and expand current underground Resources (see Figure - http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/svl226-F1.pdf). This drill program continues to be extremely successful and several of the most recent holes have identified additional bonanza grade (as defined below) intercepts and two new zones (El Cholugo and El Cholugo Dos) that lie below and are sub-parallel to the Main Mineralized Zone currently being mined. All holes included in this program will assist with resource confirmation and reclassification, the results of which will be included in the upcoming Pre-Feasibility Study for the Santa Elena Expansion Project.

J. Scott Drever, President stated; "This delineation drill program has been immensely successful. We have drilled the known portion of the deposit at 35 to 40 metre centres, the Main Mineralized Zone has been extended by approximately 300 metres beyond our current resource boundary and we have identified two new sub-parallel zones, El Cholugo and El Cholugo Dos. We are eagerly awaiting the results of the revised underground resource and reserve estimations that are intended to extend the mine life well beyond the existing 6.5 year life of the current open pit heap leach. Our underground decline has progressed beyond 1,200 metres and a number of muck bays are within 25 metres of the underground portion of the ore deposit which will allow for early development of the deposit."
In this reported series, core holes SE-13-117, SE-13-119 and GT-12-09 have intercepted further Bonanza grades of silver (greater than 1,000 gpt Ag) ranging from 1.0 metre @ 1.50 gpt Au and 1,320 gpt Ag to 1.9 metres @ 2.34 gpt Au and 1,281.9 gpt Ag (see tables below).
Assay values in this series of holes range from 0.3 gpt to 27.2 gpt gold and 54.7 gpt to 1,320.0 gpt silver. Mineralized intervals range from 1.7 metres to 25.8 metres. All mineralized drill intercepts are near true thicknesses. The most significant assay results in this series of holes are shown in the following tables;
Investorideas.com Newswire Investorideas.com Newswire All sample analyses were completed by ALS Chemex in Hermosillo, Mexico and North Vancouver, BC.
Assays for Hole SE-12-60, SE-12-61, and SE-12-75 were pending in a previous news release and are now presented above. Hole GT-12-09 previously reported only the Main Mineralized Zone with the El Cholugo Zone intercept now reported above.
The El Cholugo Zone continues to expand with 5 new drill hole intercepts. The dimensions of this newly discovery zone are now approximately 200 metres long by 100 metres high and open to the west and to depth. A new parallel mineralized zone (EL Cholugo Dos) was intercepted below the El Cholugo discovery in hole SE-13-117 with 10.4 metres @ 0.78 gpt Au and 76.7 gpt Ag; hole SE-13-118 with 4.2 metres @ 0.90 gpt Au and 70.8 gpt Ag, and hole SE-13-119 with 4.5 metres @ 4.83 gpt Au and 72.3 gpt Ag. Dimensions of this new discovery are currently unknown with further drilling anticipated to test this mineralization. Both of these new zones will be easily accessible from the underground development of the adjacent Main Mineralized Zone. A series of holes are being drilled to the west of SE-13-117 to test all three zones at depth.
Several Holes reported previously (Holes SE-12-72, SE-12-73, SE-12-74, and SE-12-111) extended the strong silver and gold mineralization along the Main Mineralized Trend to the east and to depth. These intercepts are up to 200 metres beyond the boundary of current resource estimates. This area beyond previous resource boundaries is now approximately 300 metres long by 200 metres high by 5 to 10 metres thick and open to the east and to depth and will be included in the upcoming revised resource estimates. Further drilling is underway to help delineate this area of potential expansion.
Approximately 39,000 metres of drilling have been completed to date in the program to convert underground resources to reserves and expand total resources. Results for the next series of holes will be released once compilation of results is complete. Three drills are currently on site completing the in-fill program.

Mobile Stocks Investor Alert; Payment Processing and Mobile Strategies From Heartland Payment Systems (HPY) and Calpian, Inc. (CLPI)

POINT ROBERTS, WA - February 22, 2013 (Investorideas.com mobile payment stocks newswire) Investorideas.com, a leader in sector research for independent investors, issues exclusive insight into the opportunities and challenges in the payment processing industry from management of Heartland Payment Systems and Calpian, Inc., and how the two companies are planning for the future with innovative mobile strategies.

Mr. Bob Baldwin, Vice Chairman of Heartland Payment Systems ( NYSE : HPY ) and Mr. Harold Montgomery, Chairman and CEO of Calpian, Inc. ( OTCQB : CLPI ) share their industry knowledge on four key points shaping their industry; where they see the biggest growth opportunities, how new EMV transaction requirements will impact the industry, their mobile growth plan and lastly, what they feel are the biggest challenges facing the payments industry moving forward.
Q: Investorideas.com
As an industry leader in payment processing, where do you see the biggest growth opportunities?
A: Mr. Bob Baldwin, Vice Chairman of Heartland Payment Systems
In card acquiring/processing, we see our biggest opportunities in further broadening our capabilities so that we can address additional merchant segments and/or bring new solutions to market. As examples of the former, we have launched significant initiatives in grocery and ecommerce, areas where we have previously had a limited or nonexistent presence. For the latter, we are highly focused on the implications of the development of cloud-enabled tablet processing. As these solutions develop, driven by the extensive interest in using tablet/smart phone interactions to change the merchant/consumer relationship through offers, discounts, etc., we see significant opportunities in the disruption of existing processing approaches and in particular the existing solutions offered by higher-end POS systems. We are also confident that the merchant will need a much more robust network-management capacity, given the reliance on the cloud, and are rolling out a hosted network solution that will address this specific issue.
We are also deeply focused on a broader range of processing solutions that we think can drive faster growth for Heartland Payment Systems in the years ahead. Pro forma for two acquisitions that closed in December, approximately 30% of the company's Net Revenue in 2013 will be generated in non-card activities. In particular we would focus on two drivers of growth: payroll, and our school-related offerings (differing solutions for K-12 and University). In payroll, we view the acquisition of Ovation Payroll at year-end as being truly transformative, bringing on board a new leadership for the combined businesses, combining the processing onto one common platform for scale economies, and driving innovation in our sales approaches. In the school-related field, we now provide processing for the lunch program of 30% of the public schools in the US, and see substantial growth in replacing checks and cash with electronic loads of the student's prepaid account. At the college and university level, with the acquisition of ECSI, we now offer a host of processing solutions to more than 2,000 schools, and believe we have significant cross-sell opportunities with our broad set of processing solutions. Both of these businesses have the potential to grow much more quickly than the card business, and so they will be critical to helping drive faster overall growth in the coming years.
A: Mr. Harold Montgomery, Chairman and CEO of Calpian, Inc.
We believe the small to mid-sized merchant space is a vibrant and dynamic market segment. Every merchant is interested in cost-competitive payment processing and that's where we specialize. Offering customized solutions at an affordable cost to the small business owner is crucial to his ability to maintain and grow his business. Payment processing is as critical a business function to a merchant as is the goods he sells -- it must work seamlessly every time. Calpian works with merchants, who these days are burdened with more and more costs and government regulations, to ensure that each of our merchant customers receives the most cost-effective and regulatory compliant solution for their specific type of business.
Calpian's acquisitive strategy in the small to mid-sized merchant space presents what we believe to be the greatest opportunity for growth under current market conditions. The payments industry has long been one of entrepreneurs and as such, there are numerous very well run small Independent Sales Organizations (ISOs) serving this merchant space who are looking for larger partners with capital strength. By partnering with Calpian, these ISOs receive both the working capital they need to grow their businesses and access to Calpian's superior pricing and payment processing product options.
Q: Investorideas.com
How do new EMV transaction requirements impact the industry?
A: Mr. Bob Baldwin, Vice Chairman of Heartland Payment Systems
At this point, the impact of EMV is difficult to predict. The card brands have not been very effective at articulating the value proposition to either merchants or issuers, so progress has been slow. It also appears that any reterminalization (exchanging one terminal for another), which the successful roll-out of EMV would force, will be greatly impacted by the success in the marketplace of both contactless solutions (NFC or bar code) and new tablet-based processing alternatives. We will be learning a lot about these solutions over the next two years, and Heartland's intention is to remain engaged with all of the new solutions so that we can bring the most effective ones to our merchants when the timing is right.
A: Mr. Harold Montgomery, Chairman and CEO of Calpian, Inc.
EMV presents an opportunity for merchants to achieve a level of transaction security they have never before enjoyed by requiring a chip and PIN card to be used at the point-of-sale (POS). It's also an opportunity for companies like ours who support merchants to educate them about the benefits and requirements of EMV and assist in their POS equipment upgrade needs. Despite the benefits that EMV presents, the U.S. rollout, scheduled to begin April 1, will most likely be delayed because the card associations have not provided a clear implementation road map to the various players in the payment chain -- system and program updates to support EMV processing must be made at the card issuer, card processor and hardware manufacturing levels -- to name a few. Card-holding consumers must be issued new plastic cards with an embedded chip. Merchants must be educated on the new procedure at the point-of-sale and must upgrade their processing equipment to accept EMV cards. There is a lot to do and a lot of questions throughout the payments industry that must be answered before we will effectively make the transition to EMV in the U.S. Calpian is committed to monitoring the latest EMV developments so that our merchants are educated, equipped and ready when the time is right.
Q: Investorideas.com
What is your company's mobile growth plan?
A: Mr. Bob Baldwin, Vice Chairman of Heartland Payment Systems
We introduced our MoBuyle fob solution, which works with iOS and Android tablets and phones, in 2012 and since then, have enabled many thousands of our merchants with this capability. Unlike many competitors, we have been focused on providing an already-active merchant with added flexibility with this solution, for example by using a tablet outdoors in the summer, or line-busting, or as back-up processing when the merchant's primary system is not operating. At the same time, we are considering how we want to address the micro-merchant category where mobile solutions have been highly popular; Heartland has never wanted its sales force to sell to such small merchants, as the economics just don't make sense. At the same time, we believe that we have numerous partners including banks and professional associations that may well prove to be highly effective in providing a conduit to their customers and members in a cost-effective way.
A: Mr. Harold Montgomery, Chairman and CEO of Calpian, Inc.
Calpian has both a domestic and a global strategy with regard to mobile wallets.
In the U.S., we are monitoring the developing mobile market carefully with the intent of identifying services we can provide which make sense when it makes sense to offer them. There are a number of mobile payment solutions available in the U.S. market now, but none has really taken hold yet -- largely because the convergence of consumer demand and handset functionality (the most widely used smartphone in the U.S. -- iPhone -- did not equip their latest release, iPhone 5, to process mobile transactions) has not yet come together. Only when consumers require mobile wallet functionality and phone manufacturers equip phones with the ability to process them en masse, will a mobile payment merchant solution begin to emerge and will it make sense to offer it to our merchant customers.
Calpian's global mobile payments strategy centers around our ownership of Mumbai, India-based "Money-on-Mobile," the largest mobile payments processor in India. Our experience in India has been instructive to us about the ways consumers integrate mobile wallet functionality into their lives on a daily basis. It's enabled us to identify new offerings and merchant markets for mobile payments and to be a large player in the global mobile payments initiative. The growth of Money-on-Mobile to over 35 million unique users in less than two years is a dramatic demonstration of the power of mobile payments and the importance of providing a solution that fits both the specific market conditions and the specific consumer's needs in that market. We've done that in India with Money-on-Mobile
Q: Investorideas.com
Do you see the biggest challenge as government regulation moving forward, or are there other factors that will impact the industry even more?
A: Mr. Bob Baldwin, Vice Chairman of Heartland Payment Systems
Historically, government regulation has not had a meaningful impact on our business, except indirectly through bank regulators. Of course, the Durbin Amendment to the Dodd-Frank legislation had a substantial impact on the pricing of the majority of debit card transactions, which resulted in a number of unintended consequences that the industry is still grappling with. Looking forward, while there could be further legislative action, and certainly will be impacts from judicial actions -- the Visa/MasterCard class action settlement that now allows merchant surcharging is a good example -- we expect the card processing environment to be tremendously dynamic in the next few years, driven by technology advances that are just starting to play out. To succeed in the coming years we believe an acquirer will have to make thoughtful investments, implement successful sales and marketing strategies, and move aggressively to engage merchants in the opportunities to improve both their processing environment, and customer interactions. We believe that Heartland, having achieved significant scale on our modern processing platforms, and having the industry's best and largest sales organization, is ideally suited to benefit from the substantial disruption we see in the coming years in this market.
A: Mr. Harold Montgomery, Chairman and CEO of Calpian, Inc.
Government regulation is definitely a concern, particularly after the Durbin Amendment wreaked havoc with debit card processing and affected the entire payments chain, including the consumer, in mostly unfavorable ways. With recent court rulings regarding surcharging and allowing spending limits on credit card transactions, it seems there are always changes to the rules governing electronic payments. Calpian monitors all such events so that our merchants are informed about both their rights and the requirements they must meet based on such rulings. Although we don't see any major legislation being currently considered, when new products and processes -- such as EMV and mobile payments -- are introduced with what will invariably be the normal kinks any new product or service, we may see some legislative activity in response.
Among the near term trends that Calpian sees as industry game changers are innovative product and pricing packages and EMV are the top two that we are watching today.

As one of the biggest shareholders and investors in Sunwin Stevia International ( OTCQB : SUWN ), WILD Flavors has been dedicated to the ongoing development and marketing of Sunwin Stevia™. They have had success in gaining customer acceptance of Sunwin's brand, making use of their natural Taste Optimization Technology and excellent resources, especially in European markets. WILD Flavors and Sunwin have been cooperating to create new formulations, adopting advanced technologies to provide products with the best quality and taste. WILD has taken the role as a leader and a collaborator in the international marketing of Sunwin Stevia.
Q: Investorideas.com
Canada recently approved stevia as an ingredient in the food and beverage industry -- how does this impact companies like yours and the future of the industry?
A: Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO
Sunwin has been preparing for the possible entry into Canadian markets for quite some time and now has some very good customer resources in place. The approval will allow Sunwin to further expand the scope of its market in North America, strengthen the awareness and promotion of stevia, and increase emerging customers.
Q: Investorideas.com
The company recently announced new high tech manufacturing upgrades in anticipation of future growth -- can you give investors insight as to the capacity of the new production lines and some of the key improvements made?
A: Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO
Our new product lines include a high A3 product line, a stevia product line and a granule stevia production line with 500 tons annual capacity each. With the adjustment of relative technique standards, the production is more efficient and the quality of the product is strengthened as well. Take granule products for instance, we adopted the new advanced technical formula from WILD and the efficient boiling granulating technology highly expands the potential industry use of the stevia products.
Q: Investorideas.com
The Company announced in January it is now capable of producing high quality A3-99 stevia products. What are the market opportunities for this stevia extract and how are you targeting them?
A: Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO
A3-99 is the highest quality of the REB A products in stevia industry. The ability to produce A3-99 illustrates that Sunwin has made huge progress and a significant break in the stevia manufacturing technique. The biggest difference between A3-99 products and other lower level products is the taste. A3-99 will be targeting customers with high demand for better taste quality.
Q: Investorideas.com
In late November you announced that you have started marketing six of the proprietary formulations developed in conjunction with WILD Flavors, Inc. to food manufacturers in China. What kind of growth opportunities do you see within China?
A: Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO
Currently, the Chinese stevia market is in a development period, so the opportunity is still very much in front of us. The 6 formula is not only important for our marketing strategy, but also key to future cooperation with potential new customers. Having a full line of products, formulations and services, is a great competitive advantage for Sunwin as we enter the market.
Q: Investorideas.com
In closing, as a leader in the industry, what are you seeing in terms of new products coming to market using stevia and do you anticipate the overall growth to continue moving forward? (For example, Packaged Facts, a US Research firm estimates the world stevia market between $800m and $2bn in 2011 and industry leaders have predicted that REB A may reach as high as $10bn over the next few years.)
A: Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO
From a global perspective, as a new natural sweetener, stevia is becoming familiar and accepted by a growing number of organizations and consumers. We are seeing it in beverages, baking, ice cream and new products are announced all the time.
The market has increased substantially by the approval for stevia in the EU and Canada. We are very optimistic about the continuing growth of stevia products and look forward to new countries approving its use .The potential global stevia market and business opportunity is bigger than we ever imagined years ago when we were first started producing and marketing our lines.

OTC Automotive Stock Alert; MWW Automotive (OTCQB: MWWC) Reports Financial Results for the First Fiscal Quarter 2013

HOWELL, Mich. - February 20, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) MWW Automotive Group (OTCQB: MWWC), a global design, engineering, and manufacturing firm serving some of the world's leading automotive and industrial manufacturers and design firms, announced today its financial results for the First Quarter 2013, ending on December 31, 2012.

"While we have been able to considerably improve our balance sheet in specific sections and will continue to do so in the months and years to come, we have not yet produced the revenues that appropriately reflect the level of our turn around," states Chuck Pinkerton of Marketing Worldwide Corp. "Nevertheless, based on recent developments, the Company's management and consulting teams believe that the Company will report positive cash flow from operating activities by the end of 2013. Achieving these goals is subject to the Company's ability to appropriately finance the rapidly increasing order and resulting production volume and resolve certain remaining issues as outlined in our filings. We do believe that the prospects of the company have improved significantly and it is now on a clear path of recovery."
Chuck Pinkerton, continues: "While our revenues are still in a partial pre-production-recovery mode, as we have earlier announced, we expect to demonstrate improving financial and operational performance beginning with our 2nd quarter 2013 results, which are due on May 15, 2013. Already in this first quarter ending on December 31, 2012, we have set the basis for improving performance by keeping our operating expenses close to the same level as in the year before. At the same time we have continued to secure new business, have been expanding our production facilities, broadened production capabilities, and disbursed significant resources for several awarded pre-production projects in preparation for a significant increase in production volume and revenues, beginning in the 2nd quarter of 2013.
Only twenty four months ago our company was dependent on mainly one large client (Toyota), which had created an unsustainable vulnerability for us, painfully demonstrated when we lost that customer because of a general shift within the Toyota organization and we lost the majority of our revenues over night. Based on this experience, we are now spreading our risk over a number of large customers. Most of the MWW extended active client roster programs are now either in full production or an advanced pre-production mode. This includes programs for large clients such as Ford, Chevrolet, Hyundai, Subaru, Toyota (returning business), Nissan, Scion, MAZDA and CNH to name a few.
This has been achieved while at the same time reducing our gross loss from operations by nearly 30% and only slightly increasing the net loss from operations, caused by the necessary expansion in expectation of higher production volume. We expect to significantly improve our performance in the third and fourth quarter 2013 and report positive cash flow from operating activities. While 2012 has been our year to assure the company's survival, the focus for 2013 will be on the aggressive expansion of our business model of diversification and on a more economical approach to financing the company's expansion in support of our share price."
REVENUES
Net revenues were $193,974 for the three months ended December 31, 2012. Our revenues decreased by $29,615 from the three months ended December 31, 2011. This decrease is attributable to the fact that some of the new programs that had already been awarded still have been significantly delayed. At the same time our team was focused on the pre-production of a number of already awarded projects and aggressively pursuing additional business, with a focus on immediate production start.
GROSS LOSS
For the three months ended December 31, 2012, MWW has significantly improved its Gross Loss, which was $26,249 (13.5) in the 1st quarter of 2013, compared to a gross loss of $91,684 (41.05) for the three months ended December 31, 2012. This improvement is based on the fact that MWW sold a greater percentage of its higher margin products during the first quarter of 2013 than in the same period during 2012. The primary components of cost of sales are direct labor and cost of parts and materials. The cost of parts and materials has been consistent from year to year.
OPERATING EXPENSES
Selling, general, and administrative expenses were $350,176 (180% of revenues) in 2012 compared to $253,026 (113% of revenues) during 2011. The increase in costs is attributable to additional production and management staffing added at Colortek, as we carefully ramp up towards future revenue. Management intends to keep costs comparatively low, so that increasing product volume and revenue will result in improving profit margins and eventually net profits. Significant components of operating expenses consist of professional fees, salaries, and impairment losses, some of them accrued or non-cash.
Net Income – Earnings per Share
Net income available to common stockholders improved to a profit of $4,047,258, generated earnings per share of $0.02 in the first quarter of 2013 compared to a ($2,128,659) loss in the first quarter of 2012 an increase of $6,175,917. This increase was partially based on the change in the fair market value of the derivative liabilities. At the same time total liabilities decreased from $16,245,335 in 2012 to $11,883,752 in 2013 and generated earnings per share of $0.02 in Q1 of 2013 as opposed to a loss of $0.02 per share in Q1 of 2012.
