RIDE HAILING STOCKS TO WATCH

These Two Ride Sharing Stocks Have Slid But Does That Mean It’s An Opportunity Or Another Red Flag?

Earlier this year, Wall Street and the rest of the world was abuzz at the prospect of two of the most eagerly anticipated initial public offerings. Both belonged to ride-sharing companies. One was LYFT Inc (NASDAQ:LYFT) and the other was the global behemoth Uber Technologies Inc (NYSE:UBER).

IPO Stocks Hitting New Lows; Why?

The stocks didn’t perform that well, post-listing day and earlier this week, both stocks sunk to their record lows. The plunge took place last week. According to analysts, the decline is due to widespread skepticism about the business models of the companies. Over the past few weeks, many public companies have been subject to scathing criticism from the public.

Last week, Uber stock dropped by as much as 4% to and hit a low of $28.15. This was the lowest level in its history. Lyft, which had its IPO ahead of Uber, saw its stock go down by 4% to hit $37.92. Uber had hit a previous low of $30.29, while the same for Lyft was $40.84.

Both of those lows had been reached in the last days of September. Uber’s valuation sits at $49 billion as opposed to its private valuation of $76 billion. The situation with Lyft is not as bad since it is current valuation stands at $11.6 billion as opposed to the private valuation of $15 billion.

What Does The Future Hold?

The current situation with many of the tech companies which had its IPOs this year is due to the increased scrutiny about the business models of these outfits. The final nail for investors had been the whole fiasco surrounding the IPO of the co-working space firm WeWork.

The company has eventually decided against going for the IPO after it appeared that it would have to reduce its valuation from $45 billion to $15 billion. That gave rise to increased scrutiny of another tech IPOs as well and it seems it is a downturn that is going to take some time to reverse.

MADISON, WI and VANCOUVER, Oct. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (“Liberty”) (TSXV: SCAN; FRANKFURT: LD2; OTCQB:LDDFF), a leading concealed weapons detection solutions company, is announcing that it has signed a collaboration agreement (“CoA”) with the University of Wisconsin Police Department (“UWPD”) to beta test HEXWAVE on campus.

UW-Madison is known as one of the top universities in the country, and is the oldest and largest public university in the state of Wisconsin. The UW’s academic and athletic success attracts tens of thousands to the campus each year.

HEXWAVE uses 3D radar imaging and artificial intelligence, primarily to detect and identify weapons, as well as other threats and anomalies without obstructing the movement of large groups of people. HEXWAVE enables the implementation of a layered defense strategy, which provides security teams with more time to manage threats by detecting them at the perimeter of a property.

“It is a privilege to work with the University of Wisconsin and its Police Department, such a well-established and respected education institution,” said Bill Riker, CEO of Liberty Defense. “We are looking to expand our understanding of the needs of educational environments, including open campuses. We are proud to have the opportunity to contribute and draw upon the Department’s expertise.”

Universities are a major category in the public venues market vertical, making this partnership key for Liberty’s continued development of HEXWAVE.

“The security of our campus is, of course, a top priority,” said Kristen Roman, Chief of Police at UW-Madison. “We are excited to have the opportunity to be the first campus to test this new technology. We understand how important it is for organizations to keep innovating when it comes to security and we look forward to kicking off the testing in 2020.”

This beta testing phase is a key part of HEXWAVE’s development process. Testing the system in operational and diverse facilities can help to ensure that it is aligned to market requirements. Beta testing is expected to begin later in 2019 and progress into 2020. Liberty will also beta test HEXWAVE at FC Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena in Germany, Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Maryland Stadium Authority’s Camden Yards Complex, in the state of Utah, with the Virginia Division of Capitol Police, in Sleiman shopping centers, in a Hindu temple, in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, and in Toronto Pearson International Airport.

Sernova (SVA) (SEOVF) Finds C-Peptide In Phase I/II Fasting Patient

Mr. Dominic Gray reports

SERNOVA CONFIRMS ENDURING LEVELS OF FASTING C-PEPTIDE IN BLOODSTREAM OF FIRST PATIENT IN ITS PHASE I/II CLINICAL TRIAL FOR TYPE-1 DIABETES

Sernova Corp. (SVA) (SEOVF) has detected enduring levels of C-peptide (measured up to 30 days and continuing), a biomarker of transplanted beta cell insulin production, in the bloodstream of a fasting patient in its continuing phase I/II Cell Pouch United States clinical study of type-1 diabetes.

The detection of fasting C-peptide in the bloodstream of our first patient, in addition to Sernova’s recent announcement of glucose-stimulated C-peptide and other early efficacy indicators, demonstrate a normalizing response of the Cell Pouch therapeutic cells to the body’s varied need for insulin production. This is an important step forward and evidence of ongoing islet engraftment within the Cell Pouch.

“Along with the preliminary safety and early indicators of efficacy, I am excited that we are observing C-peptide levels in the patient’s bloodstream after recent transplant, not only following stimulation with a meal but also when the patient is fasting. These findings represent progress in clinical outcomes and evidence of enduring islet survival and function within Sernova’s Cell Pouch,” said Dr. Piotr Witkowski, Director of Pancreatic, and Islet Transplant Program at the University of Chicago and study principal investigator. “We look forward to reporting ongoing results in additional patients as the trial progresses.”

The entry criteria of Sernova’s clinical study require patients to be C-peptide negative upon enrolment. C-peptide measured in the bloodstream is a biomarker of insulin and is widely used as a measure of insulin production by islet cells. C-peptide is typically measured following overnight fasting (fasting C-peptide) and during a glucose tolerance test (glucose-stimulated C-peptide). Together these measures provide an index of the patient’s ability to control blood glucose through their production of insulin.

With the goal of improved blood glucose control and stabilization of fluctuating blood sugar levels commonly experienced in people with type-1 diabetes, a normalizing response can also decrease the likelihood of life threatening hypoglycemic unaware events, a key efficacy measure in the Sernova trial.

Sernova’s clinical trial is continuing active recruitment and enrollment of study participants and further results will continue to be reported as the study progresses.

ABOUT SERNOVA’S CLINICAL TRAIL

Sernova is conducting a Phase I/II non-randomized, unblinded, single arm, company-sponsored trial, to assess the safety and tolerability of islet transplantation into the company’s patented Cell Pouch in participants with diabetes and hypoglycemia unawareness. The secondary objective is to assess efficacy through a series of defined measures. Importantly, patients enrolled in Sernova’s clinical trial are incapable of producing C-peptide prior to implantation of Sernova’s Cell Pouch and therapeutic cells.

Eligible subjects are implanted with Cell Pouches. Following development of vascularized tissue chambers within the Cell Pouch, subjects are then stabilized on immunosuppression and a dose of purified islets, under strict release criteria, transplanted into the Cell Pouch.

A sentinel pouch is removed for an early assessment of the islet transplant. Subjects are followed for additional safety and efficacy measures for approximately six months. At this point, a decision is made with regards to the transplant of a second islet dose with subsequent safety and efficacy follow up. Patients will be then further followed for one year to assess longer-term safety and efficacy.

For more information on this clinical trial, please visit www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03513939. For more information on enrollment and recruitment details please visit www.pwitkowski.org/sernova.

ABOUT SERNOVA’S CELL POUCH

The Cell Pouch is a novel, proprietary, scalable, implantable macro-encapsulation device designed for the long- term survival and function of therapeutic cells. The device is designed to incorporate with tissue, forming highly vascularized tissue chambers for the transplantation and function of therapeutic cells which then release proteins and hormones as required to treat disease. The device along with therapeutic cells has been shown to provide long-term safety and efficacy in small and large animal models of diabetes and has been proven to provide a biologically compatible environment for insulin-producing cells in humans.

ABOUT SERNOVA CORP.

Sernova Corp is developing regenerative medicine therapeutic technologies using a medical device and immune protected therapeutic cells (i.e., human donor cells, corrected human cells and stem-cell derived cells) to improve the treatment and quality of life of people with chronic metabolic diseases such as insulin-dependent diabetes, blood disorders including hemophilia, and other diseases treated through replacement of proteins or hormones missing or in short supply within the body.
