'Things are looking great' for Pioneering Technology says CEO Kevin Callahan http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/stocktube/6489 Pioneering Technology Corporation (CVE:PTE) president and chief executive Kevin Callahan updates Proactive on the company's latest results and outlook for growth.

They've recently received a boost with its life-saving SmartBurner product being made available for purchase through the US Communities Government Purchasing Alliance.

The system is an easy-to-install upgrade for conventional electric coil stoves.  Built-in temperature regulators and a proprietary design ensure the attractive elements never get so hot that if left unattended they might hit sustained temperatures high enough to cause a fire.

In regard to Pioneer's fourth quarter results Callahan says: ''Things look great. Year over year we're up about 55%, we're profitable again, net income is a little over $1 mln''.

''We expect this growth to continue.  Some of what's driving that growth is one of our products SmartBurner which represents about 70% of our sales at present.''

Callahan adds: ''That sort of shift from us selling our products directly to us working with three of the largest supply channel distributors in North America has meant that we now have 500-600 people actively selling our products into the channels we want to be in versus the 5 or 6 that we had a year and a half ago.''

BOS GLOBAL's work patterns platform to be "more viral than the use of Facebook" http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/stocktube/6477 Michael Travia, managing director of recently-listed technology firm BOS GLOBAL HOLDINGS Limited (LON:BOS), tells Proactive Investors what the company is all about.
In a word, it is: efficiency.
The company’s “platform-as-a-service” helps companies do things better, and that translates into a boost for the bottom line, Travia explains.
Interestingly, this is not a case of the cobbler’s children having no shoes; BOS’s first and most important client was itself, and Travia said that “as a pre-revenue organisation going into revenue next month, we have been able to produce more, with less cash, and get there faster”.
The crux of its offering is collecting and sharing information, and in the process “turning it into knowledge”, which can be profitably shared to enable fact-based decisions to be made more quickly.
The company recently signed a transformational deal with Ag-I Solutions, a software development and licensing business headquartered in Hong Kong, that will enable BOS to re-bade some Ag-I products, paving the way for the release of BOS’s BOS360 Work Patterns platform.
Travia is confident businesses will be introduced in its platform, and the bigger the business, the more efficiency savings its platforms will deliver, all for a small investment.
Better still, none of Travia’s vastly experienced team has ever come across “anything that comes close” to what the BOS360 platform offers, and it’s all protected by a patent.
“On that basis we are very confident that, with time, we will become globally recognised as a true provider of a work pattern, and you only need to work out how many workers there are in the world to work out what that would mean for GOS GLOBAL in its global ambitions,” Travia said.
BOS’s ambition is “to own this space worldwide”. Travia predicts it will be more viral than the use of Facebook.
So, while BOS’s model is to provide the licences to its distribution channel partner, and they will handle the implementation side, much of the marketing should be done by word-of-mouth.

TechFinancials Inc JV 'paying dividends' says COO Jeremy Lange http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/stocktube/6476 The good news keeps on coming for resurgent financial trading services provider TechFinancials Inc (LON:TECH), which is to pocket a million dollars in dividend payments.

The US$1,020,000 pay-out is from its 51%-owned subsidiary, DragonFinancials, which has declared a US$2mln dividend in respect of the first nine months of 2016.

TechFinancials COO Jeremy Lange tells Proactive: ''We started out the joint venture with Optionfortune on the first of January this year   and the relationship is paying dividends''.

''The JV has done amazingly well, so we see results on target, the dividend is beyond our expectations this year and we're expecting good results to the end of this year''.

TechFinancials, which last week raised earnings guidance for the year, said it would look in the new year at the possibility of resuming dividend payments.

The report, 'Rise of the Growth Hunters', analyses sentiment and expectations of over 1,000 retail investors alongside five years of company growth data from Beauhurst.

de Vasconcelos says early-stage companies may well be the route to higher returns for investors, adding that they've experienced a rate of growth in the past five years that is more than 6 times faster than that of the FTSE all-share index.

''When you think about it, it's an astonishing comparison on the growth that those companies enjoyed compared to the main market''.

Mirada Plc boss hails successful large-scale rollout of Iris platform http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/stocktube/6454 Digital TV services specialist Mirada Plc (LON:MIRA) is enjoying improved cash flow after successfully rolling out its Iris Inspire platform on Televisa Group's Izzi network.

In its half-year results, the group revealed turnover rose to £2.78mln in the six months to the end of September from £2.26mln the year before, with the Americas accounting for three-quarters of revenues, in line with expectations.

On just why the period was so significant chief executive Jose Luis Vazquez tells Proactive: ''We were able to launch to Televisa's five cable networks  without any technical glitches, it's going really well and the performance of the video-on-demand solution is going extremely well''.

''We announced a few weeks ago our milestone of 500,000 set-top boxes .. and we've made an update today that we are now at 525,000 so it's growing ... but it's still far away from where we're going to reach''.

The group now has sales and marketing representation in India, Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe as well as the Americas, and around half of the business in the company’s pipeline is outside of Mirada’s traditional Americas heartland.

The group said it has now performed more than half a million registrations in the People’s Republic for its .vip domain, which is not bad going, as it only went on sale in May of this year.
Chief executive Toby Hall tells Proactive: ''We've had a good 23% growth since the half-year point there so we're very pleased indeed''. Hall went on to say the milestone was achieved without making use of the “fremium” sales models, adding ''for us there were many marketing strategies that can be used to launch a domain but for us maintaining the price is key for establishing the long term value. What's particularly reassuring is this significant level of registration has been done without any discount of our standard price''.

“We’ve been talking to significant corporates, and customers over the last eighteen months and while we’ve been successful in partnering with them to reduce spend on their indirect services, we’ve been hearing ‘how can you help me on my physical goods spend’ as well,” he said in an interview.

“So by listening to our customers we took a decision to add that ability to source goods through our marketplace as well, which really means that we’re a complete solution now.”

Happily the penny is now starting to drop says chief executive William Clough as meaty contracts with National Grid and Italian firm SNAM RETE illustrate.
These will showcase the benefits of its gas quality monitoring tech and Clough believes it is only a matter of time before other suppliers switch from the chromatographs that have been the industry standard for sixty years.
When they do it will mean a huge opportunity for CUI he explains to Proactive.

Axios Mobile Assets on course for big step value change http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/stocktube/6034 Richard MacDonald, President and chief executive of Axios Mobile Assets Corp.

The transport pallet specialist is suffering from a growing company’s dream – that of a backlog of orders.  Customers are prepared to wait because as MacDonald explains:  “We’re so far ahead in terms of the technology and washing and sanitisation there’s no other alternative.”

“People are being very being very patient because they know it’s the best solution out there and there’s nothing else in the interim that can compete with it.”

'Fantastic visibility' is being promised over the next two quarters and shareholders should see "a big step value change in how the company’s doing.”
