Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOG), Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) Target Diabetes Tech

The world’s largest and most powerful tech companies –Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOG), Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) – are targeting an opportunity in health care that’s just too big to ignore – diabetes. Almost a third of the entire U.S. population – more than 100 million people in this country alone – are living with diabetes or are at high risk for the disease. Diabetes makes it difficult for the body to process sugar (glucose) and can lead to serious health issues and death. With $1 of every $4 of health care costs in the U.S. now spent on caring for people with diabetes, these tech giants are looking to snag a share of the multi-trillion-dollar global diabetes markets through innovation. 

Managing the disease relies way too much on guesswork and variables – random finger pricks to test blood sugar before trying to accurately adjust insulin dosage is far from perfect science. Plus, a multiplicity of lifestyle choices, like food and exercise, can severely impact people with the disease. Technology is key to helping people with diabetes better manage their disease, and the tech giants are all exploring how they can bring new services and tools to market. 

  • Alphabet, through its Verily subsidiary, teamed with DexCom Inc. (NASDAQ: DXCM) to bring continuous monitoring hardware to market. DexCom users insert a sensor under the skin and, after the sensor is inserted, a transmitter is snapped into place allowing users to check their readings via a smartphone or watch.
  • Amazon makes it easier for people to access their readings via the Alexa voice assistant and promotes blood sugar monitoring devices on its marketplace.
  • Apple is working closely with other medical device makers like Dexcom to build integrations with consumer devices like Apple Watch and iPhone.

Tech continues to provide creative solutions to better manage chronic diseases like diabetes. Nemaura Medical Inc. (NASDAQ: NMRD) has developed sugarBEAT(R) – a wearable, non-invasive and flexible continuous glucose monitor patch designed to help people with diabetes and prediabetes manage their glucose levels. sugarBEAT(R) consists of a daily disposable adhesive skin patch connected to a rechargeable transmitter with a smartphone app displaying glucose readings at five-minute intervals for periods of up to 24 hours. Users don’t have to draw blood samples or prick their fingers multiples times each day and can wear the patch on whatever days they choose. 

Other continuous glucose monitor devices on the market must be implanted under the skin. sugarBEAT(R) is the world’s first wearable and disposable monitor which offers the potential to radically change the way people manage their chronic disease conditions. Already cleared in the EU and FDA Pre Market Application (“PMA”) submitted, Nemaura’s patented skin surface blood monitoring technology has allowed the company to create additional products, which are in the pipeline. More information on its technology can be found at www.NemauraMedical.com.

Thank goodness, technology is delivering previously unimagined solutions to human frailties and the management of chronic diseases. However, for the record it’s not altruism that’s driving these tech companies, there’s a business opportunity here that’s just too damn big to ignore.

FingerMotion Inc. (FNGR) Reports Revenue Growth from Mobile Services, Prospects for Further Big Data Services Growth in China

  • U.S.-based FingerMotion has been pursuing opportunities to provide text and multimedia message services in China, whose population is expected to exceed 1.4 billion people this year
  • FingerMotion is expanding into a third channel of operations with the development of its trademarked big data platform Sapientus, and expects revenues from the tech platform to eventually exceed its SMS and MMS message services
  • The company recently reported its Q2 financials, noting a 25 percent YOY quarterly growth in revenues attributed to SMS and MMS services, and an overall quarterly revenue growth to $5.39 million
  • China is encouraging development of its insurance industry services, providing increased opportunities for leading global insurers such as Pacific Life
  • Pacific Life Reinsurance finalized a contract with FingerMotion for Sapientus’ services earlier this year, strengthening FingerMotion’s position in supporting the insurtech industry

Communications and big data technology platform builder FingerMotion (OTCQX: FNGR) is welcoming signs of growth in its newly released Q2 report. The China-focused enterprise reported quarterly revenue of $5.39 million, which included a 25 percent year-over-year quarterly growth in its short and multimedia messaging (SMS and MMS) business revenue of $0.73 million. 

“Growth continues unabated with the SMS texting due to our optimized prepayments of bulk inventory purchases. Contributing to the growth and margin expansion was from the subscription plan and the mobile phone sales,” CEO Martin Shen stated in a news release about the financial filing (https://ibn.fm/cU7KK). “These optimized purchase programs and hardware sales and service improved gross profit from 7% to 13%. The Company is seeing strong demand in SMS from our corporate clientele.”

Despite the positive news regarding texting and multimedia services, FingerMotion remains committed to improving its bottom line through the development of its trademarked Sapientus big data platform. The company noted a sharp increase in general and administrative expenses tied to research and development as the company continues to build up SMS, MMS and big data services simultaneously. 

“We are pleased at the strength of our balance sheet which hit a milestone of over $5.0 million in shareholders’ equity. This quarter was more of a transition to greater profitability as more of our initiatives started contributing to gross margin,” Shen stated. “This is the third consecutive quarter of Big Data revenues and we expect it to continue and eventually outpace our existing revenue streams.”

During Q1, FingerMotion secured a landmark agreement with Pacific Life Re-insurance to provide Sapientus’ big data prowess as a tool for Pacific Life’s efforts to build its insurance offerings among China’s consumers. 

China’s population is expected to exceed 1.4 billion people this year, creating the potential of a world-leading base for economic activity. And the country’s leadership has been encouraging further development of the insurance industry, as noted in the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission’s recent statement urging insurers to accelerate their offerings for gig-economy delivery workers, elderly people and children with congenital diseases and medical conditions (https://ibn.fm/nhWPu).

But the country’s insurance risk and credit risk evaluation infrastructure is still underdeveloped, which poses a challenge for companies like Pacific Life — one of the world’s top five Insurance companies with $1.1 trillion in life insurance policies and $171 billion in assets (https://ibn.fm/6jhnI).

Sapientus delivers predictive algorithms that help clients such as Pacific Life Reinsurance gain insights into consumer activity and risk potential.

“This trend will continue and revenue should ramp as the insurtech business starts to develop,” Shen stated.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp.’s (NASDAQ: LEXX) DehydraTECH(TM) Addresses the Needs of Medical THC Users

  • Lexaria’s THC absorption animal study yielded promising results on the patented DehydraTECH(TM) technology
  • It showed that the technology required a shorter time to deliver the same THC levels than concentration-matched controls
  • Lexaria believes that through DehydraTECH, it is meeting the needs of medical THC users with its rapid delivery, increased overall THC delivery and high brain tissue delivery

Lexaria Bioscience’s (NASDAQ: LEXX) just-concluded oral tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”) absorption animal study, THC-A21-1, yielded promising results on the effectiveness of the company’s patented DehydraTECH(TM) drug delivery technology.

The study, performed by a leading, independent laboratory, involved 20 male Sprague Dawley rats split into two groups of ten each. It followed the administration of the THC with brain tissues collected at 8 and 24 hours (https://ibn.fm/7S0D0). 

The study showed that DehydraTECH-THC delivered via oral ingestion required only 15 minutes to dispense THC levels proportional to those achieved at 45 minutes with concentration-matched controls. It also showed that DehydraTECH-THC delivered considerably more THC into the bloodstream compared to standard medium-chain triglyceride (“MCT” or “coconut oil”)- based control formulation, starting from the 2-minute mark onwards. It would then drop rapidly to the same level as the MCT control after 6 hours.

While making the announcement, Chris Bunka, Lexaria’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), noted, “THC users today include… medicinal and pharmaceutical users, all of whom need technology that doesn’t rely on harmful delivery methods such as smoking, but still provides rapid onset and high bioavailability which common oral formats do not offer.”

Mr. Bunka acknowledged that with DehydraTECH, Lexaria offers a solution that considers medical THC users’ needs. He noted that the findings from this study are proof of the technology’s rapid delivery, increased overall THC delivery, and high brain tissue delivery, all of which are consistent with the needs and wants of medical THC customers.

According to Harvard Medical School, medical cannabis use today is largely for pain control. Patients dealing with multiple sclerosis or nerve disorders have cited responding to cannabis treatment a lot better compared to opiates. This alternative has also proven to be more effective without the accompanying addictive or sedating effects linked to opiates. With DehydraTECH, Lexaria is proving that cannabis is not only integral to healthcare going forward but that it can also be administered effectively while still yielding better results for patients.

DehydraTECH processing consistently proves its ability to deliver drugs more effectively into the bloodstream and the brain tissue. The THC-A21-1 study is a testament to that and an indication of the tremendous potential that the technology has, not just with THC delivery but also with nicotine, vitamins, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (“NSAIDs”), phosphodiesterase inhibitors and anti-viral drugs, among others.

Digital plant community products and lifestyle hub PlantX Life (CSE: VEGA) (Frankfurt: WNT1) (OTCQB: PLTXF) is establishing an expanding line of category verticals designed to firmly root its status as a one-stop shopping and education dynamo, selling more than 5,000 products in line with its mission and anticipating eventual forays into cosmetics, clothing and other product brands.

On Oct. 19 PlantX Life celebrated the announcement of another indoor plant vertical’s growth as wholly owned subsidary Bloomboxclub Limited (“Bloombox Club”) entered Canada as a direct-to-consumer indoor plant-selling business platform.

Red White & Bloom Brands Inc. (CSE: RWB) (OTCQX: RWBYF) Subsidiary Completes Development of Licensed Apopka Facility, Commences Cultivation Targeting Q4 Harvest

  • Red White & Bloom completed the build-out of its Apopka facility – phase one of a development strategy – and immediately commenced cultivation following the receipt of a cultivation license
  • The initial licensed area is projected to generate annual revenue in excess of $10 million
  • The Apopka facility will support phase two of the strategy, which entails the activation of thirty customized, self-contained growing pods
  • Phase three will involve the activation of a 113,000 SF facility for cultivation located in Sanderson

Upon closing the acquisition of an operational 45,000 square-foot greenhouse situated on 4.7 acres of land in Apopka, Florida in early August (https://ibn.fm/l3Pye), the team at Red White & Bloom Florida LLC, a Red White & Bloom Brands (CSE: RWB) (OTCQX: RWBYF) subsidiary, embarked on the rapid development of the facility to ensure all compliance standards are achieved. The rapid development – build-out of Apopka – would constitute phase one of an aggressive three-phase development strategy for its Apopka and Sanderson facilities. 

In an October 12 press release, RWB announced that it had completed phase one of the strategy. In addition, having received regulatory approval to begin cultivation toward the end of September, RWB commenced operations on September 30 (https://ibn.fm/UcOrt). 

The initial licensed area in Apopka is capable of producing 85 g of flower per plant, translating to projected annual revenue in excess of $10 million. With a projected Q4 2021 harvest schedule in the facility, RWB has hired additional cultivation specialists specifically for the Florida project, fulfilling an earlier projection that the center would add tens of additional employment opportunities for the local community when fully operational.

“We brought this site into production ahead of forecast and ahead of budget, and I’m very proud of our Florida team,” stated RWB CEO Brad Rogers. “Despite being relatively new players in the Florida market, I feel we have the most talented team of PhDs and horticulturalists, and an incredible grow infrastructure to bring the highest quality products, rich in terpenes and cannabinoid content, to some of the best retail locations in the state starting Q1 2022.”

The Apopka facility will supply RWB’s phase two of the strategy, which entails activating thirty 16’ by 40’ customized, self-contained growing pods. First announced on April 6, the pods are part of the company’s plans to increase cultivation capacity by collectively providing about 19,000 square feet of operating space, with 14,400 square feet of canopy. They will also provide a unique opportunity for RWB to produce ultra-premium products for the Florida market (https://ibn.fm/hWmGK). 

With a targeted Q4 launch, the pods are expected to yield nearly 10,000 pounds of dried flower annually, representing a current market value of $30 million. The pods will be deployed at the Sanderson Property, which covers over 15 acres of land and houses a 113,000 square-foot facility for cultivation and processing. Notably, the activation of the latter facility constitutes the company’s third phase of the strategy.

As a company committed to becoming the superior and most recognizable cannabis company in the United States, RWB’s ethos covers retail, brands, and cultivation. In Florida, where it has already commenced cultivation, the company earlier announced that it would brand its Florida medical dispensaries beginning in Q4 and is developing a consistent retail footprint and product line to align with the medical market in Florida. RWB also boasts premium THC and CBD brands, including Platinum Vape, HighTimes, and more (https://ibn.fm/BlYjh).
