ProfitableStocksOnly Looks as if the CEO of CAF has already established himself in South Africa's realm of black empowerment. He started a company a few years ago called Sewa Coti, as per his LinkedIn: Sewa Coti is an African-focused consultancy specialising in due diligence, project management, strategy, as well as B-BBEE legislation in South Africa.

So what that tells me is that with pretty much 100% certainty we will get a deal done, established Canaf with government contracts and shouldn't have any issue diversifying. This guy is smart, he has paved the road to growing this company far beyond where it's currently at.

From CAF's last MD&A:

The Corporation also remains focused on completing a Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (“B-BBEE”) transaction for Southern Coal, by mid-June 2018. The B-BBEE is a form of economic empowerment initiated by the South African government with the goal to distribute wealth across as broad a spectrum of previously disadvantaged South African society as possible. A new partner has been identified and initial terms of the agreement, which will remain much the same as the previously agreed transaction, will most probably be announced by the end of April 2018. The Corporation remains confident that it will achieve its B-BBEE goals during the current fiscal year and we remain optimistic of the opportunities that will arise from such a transaction.

MD&A Highlights

Revenues for the six months were $8,698,426 (2017 - $6,482,459) a 34% increase, and the Corporation continues to be profitable with gross profits of $703,169 (2017 - $684,905) a 2.7% increase and net income for six month period ended April 30, 2018 of $449,880 (2017 - $429,652) a $20,288, 4.7% increase. While revenues and gross margin have grown, increased cost of sales produced smaller gross margin percentages, 2018 8.1% (2017 10.6%).

The reduction in the gross margin is mainly due to a major maintenance project during the period. The Corporation expects to continue to operate profitably into Q3 and Q4, however Revenue is expected to drop, due to a reduction in demand caused primarily by one of Southern Coals main customers’ internal coke breeze coming back online.

The outlook and profitability of the Corporation remains strong and the Corporation expects to continue to generate positive free cash flow during the fiscal year-end 2018 and, as it accumulates cash and reduces its gearing and increases its efficiencies, will continue to look at investment in related business opportunities in South Africa and neighbouring countries.

The Corporation’s B-BBEE transaction for the sale of 30% of Quantum’s shares in Southern Coal remains on track to be completed during the current fiscal year. Following the termination of the initial agreement announced on 20 February 2018, a new B-BBEE partner has been identified and initial terms of the agreement, which will remain much the same as the previously agreed transaction, are expected to be announced during Q3.

Sales from the Corporation’s South African coal processing business are substantially derived from two customers and as a result, the Corporation is economically dependent on these customers. The Corporation’s exposure to credit risk is limited to the carrying value of its accounts receivable. As at April 30, 2018, trade receivables of $3,604,555 (October 31, 2017, $1,314,828) were due from these customers and were collected subsequent to period-end.

The bank loan bears interest at 10.25% per annum, matures on January 7, 2019, and is secured by the Corporation’s furnace acquired with the proceeds from the loan. The bank loan is repayable in blended monthly payments of Rand 391,624 ($32,359.89 translated at April 30, 2018 exchange rate)). During the six month period ended April 30, 2018, the Corporation incurred interest expense totaling $19,909 (April 30, 2017 – $29,658).

Expenses for the six months were $304,980 (2017 - $237,288) an increase of $67,692, 29%, primarily due to increased costs relating to the B-BBEE program

General administrative and finance expenses for the six month period were $285,071 (April 30, 2017 - $207,630) an unfavourable variance of $77,441, primarily due to increased involvement in South Africa’s B-BBEE program and increased activity resulting in higher management fees and office expenses. Additional detail of general and admin expenses can be found in the table below.

What You Must Know About Canaf Investments Inc’s (CVE:CAF) Financial Strength
Armando Maloney July 13, 2018
Canaf Investments Inc (CVE:CAF) is a small-cap stock with a market capitalization of US$4.98m. While investors primarily focus on the growth potential and competitive landscape of the small-cap companies, they end up ignoring a key aspect, which could be the biggest threat to its existence: its financial health. Why is it important? Evaluating financial health as part of your investment thesis is crucial, as mismanagement of capital can lead to bankruptcies, which occur at a higher rate for small-caps. I believe these basic checks tell most of the story you need to know. Nevertheless, this commentary is still very high-level, so I recommend you dig deeper yourself into CAF here.

Does CAF produce enough cash relative to debt?
CAF’s debt levels have fallen from US$566.85k to US$271.61k over the last 12 months , which comprises of short- and long-term debt. With this debt payback, the current cash and short-term investment levels stands at US$315.41k , ready to deploy into the business. Moreover, CAF has generated cash from operations of US$536.73k during the same period of time, leading to an operating cash to total debt ratio of 197.61%, indicating that CAF’s debt is appropriately covered by operating cash. This ratio can also be a sign of operational efficiency as an alternative to return on assets. In CAF’s case, it is able to generate 1.98x cash from its debt capital.

Does CAF’s liquid assets cover its short-term commitments?
At the current liabilities level of US$2.72m liabilities, the company has been able to meet these obligations given the level of current assets of US$4.36m, with a current ratio of 1.61x. Usually, for Metals and Mining companies, this is a suitable ratio since there is a bit of a cash buffer without leaving too much capital in a low-return environment.

TSXV:CAF Historical Debt July 12th 18
TSXV:CAF Historical Debt July 12th 18
Is CAF’s debt level acceptable?
CAF’s level of debt is appropriate relative to its total equity, at 10.45%. CAF is not taking on too much debt commitment, which can be restrictive and risky for equity-holders. We can check to see whether CAF is able to meet its debt obligations by looking at the net interest coverage ratio. A company generating earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) at least three times its net interest payments is considered financially sound. In CAF’s, case, the ratio of 32.89x suggests that interest is comfortably covered, which means that lenders may be inclined to lend more money to the company, as it is seen as safe in terms of payback.

China to invest $15 billion in South African economy

Beijing has pledged to bankroll $14.7 billion in South Africa and provide the country’s power utility and logistics corporation with loans. The South African rand firmed by more than one percent on news of the investment.
The announcement followed a meeting between the two countries’ leaders President Cyril Ramaphosa and Chinese President Xi Jinping in Pretoria. Xi’s state visit took place ahead of the 10th BRICS summit, scheduled for July 25-27. South Africa's biggest city of Johannesburg is set to welcome the heads of Brazil, Russia, India, and China.

“China is ready to invest and work with South Africa in various sectors, such as infrastructure development, ocean economy, green economy, science and technology, agriculture, environment and finance,” Ramaphosa told journalists following the meeting.

“We also recognized that, although trade figures have grown steadily over the past few years, bilateral trade has not reached its potential. We have thus explored avenues for increasing trade, identifying sectors for future investment and promoting tourism.”

The parties reportedly signed three major agreements aimed at strengthening mutual trade and identifying sectors for future investment. The presidents also announced plans to relax travel restrictions and loosen visa requirements.
The rand grew 1.04 percent to 13.3200 per dollar at 11:45 GMT, its firmest since Thursday.

“The rand is firming because our president is making it rain,” Wichard Cilliers, a trader at Pretoria-based Treasuryone told Bloomberg. “He has just secured another big investment, this time from China. That means new FDI inflows.”

Chinese investors plan $10-billion metallurgical complex in South Africa
South Africa's President Cyril Ramaphosa said at a joint news conference with Xi on Tuesday that China had committed to invest $14.7 billion in the South African economy, but neither leader mentioned the $10-billion complexREUTERS | July 27, 2018, 17:31 IST
NewsletterA A

JOHANNESBURG: Chinese investors signed agreements to build a $10-billion metallurgical complex in South Africa during President Xi Jinping's state visit this week and hope to start construction next year, an executive involved in the project and a provincial official told Reuters.

South Africa's President Cyril Ramaphosa said at a joint news conference with Xi on Tuesday that China had committed to invest $14.7 billion in the South African economy, but neither leader mentioned the $10 billion complex.

Ramaphosa is on a mission to kickstart economic growth after a decade of stagnation and is targeting $100 billion in new investment over five years.

The complex, which is still in the planning stage and envisages building a stainless steel plant, a ferrochrome plant and a silicomanganese plant, is a much-needed vote of confidence in the sputtering South African economy.

Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies said on Tuesday that China was considering a metallurgical project in a special economic zone (SEZ), but he did not reveal the scale of the project or timeframe.

The executive involved in the project, who did not wish to be named because he was not authorised to speak to the media, said memoranda on the complex were signed before Xi and Ramaphosa gave news conference on Tuesday.

"The investors for the SEZ project were in the room when Ramaphosa and Xi spoke to the press," the executive said.

Richard Zitha, a project executive at the Musina-Makhado SEZ where the complex will be based, said the project was being led by Chinese state-owned companies, but he declined to name them.

He said the Chinese investors would look for Black Economic Empowerment partners to comply with South African rules designed to address racial disparities more than two decades after the end of apartheid.

The investors were open to investors from other countries joining at a later stage, he said.

"The investors have been in South Africa for around a week and have visited mines to look for inputs for the project," Zitha said.

The Musina-Makhado SEZ is in Limpopo province close to South Africa's borders with Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Botswana.

The SEZ plans to house plants with a capacity of 3 million tonnes per annum of stainless steel, 3 million tonnes per annum of ferrochrome and 500,000 tonnes per annum of silicomanganese. Those capacity targets are subject to change and will be finalised by the end of the year, the executive said.

A coal-fired power plant, coking plant and coal washery will be built alongside the metallurgical plants, a presentation prepared for investors showed.

Some of the steel output for the complex has been earmarked for export to China, while other products would be sold to countries in southern Africa, the executive said.

South Africa is already a major exporter of metal alloys to China.

Investors are hoping to receive the necessary environmental approvals by the end of March and would then start construction, Zitha said.

ProfitableStocksOnly Looks as if this fund has started accumulating Axmin Inc. shares. The cutoff was March 31st 2018 for Q1, but their Q2 should be out sometime this summer. Doesn't make sense for a fund with $550 million USD to only pick up 240,000 shares of a small cap. Their other holdings are between $100K to $20 million each, so I suspect more will be purchased. Keep in mind that AXM insiders currently own 85 of the 130.5 million common shares.

ProfitableStocksOnly Based on the recent news from Axmin Inc, the government, UN, and other global support will help the company get this project back hopefully sometime this year. Right now AXM stock value is based solely on the royalty payment earnings multiple and has not given any value towards the CAR asset, or future Senegal royalty targets. Thus making AXM severly undervalued.

President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr President,



It is a pleasure to welcome you to St Petersburg.



I would like to thank you for coming to the St Petersburg International Economic Forum.



At the outset, I would like to recall that our country was one of the first to recognise the independence of the Central African Republic.



In the 1960s and 70s, specialists from our country worked in many spheres in your country, dozens of highly qualified specialists in many fields. Over 500 people were trained in Russia and managed to apply the knowledge and skills they received to develop their homeland.



Later, for many reasons our cooperation was, if not completely curtailed, stuck at a rather low level. We will be happy to consider various plans to boost our relations, first of all in the economic and humanitarian fields, including personnel training.



I am happy to see you, Mr President, and hope that today we will manage to find areas where we can work together to advance our relations.



President of the Central African Republic Faustin Archange Touadera (retranslated): Thank you very much, Mr President.



I am most grateful to you personally and the Government of the Russian Federation for the invitation. It is a great honour for me to take part in the St Petersburg Economic Forum.



You mentioned the very important historical cooperation between our country and the Russian Federation in the 1960s and 1970s. In these periods, our contacts were much closer.



You spoke about personnel training. Some students received education in the Soviet Union, while others studied in our country. For example, I studied at home but my teachers were Russian, which illustrates the very high level our relations were at.

I am very happy to be here at your invitation. I think this is a wonderful opportunity to enhance our cooperation in many areas. I believe we can map out ways, areas and means for more active cooperation. You mentioned the economy and humanitarian contacts and I agree with you.



Today our country is among the least developed but we have huge potential. I think participation in the economic forum will allow us to tell its participants about this potential and the business and economic opportunities opening up in our country.

I went to Sochi on October 7 and saw that there is an opportunity for large-scale partnership based on trust between our countries.



I would like to once again thank you, Mr President, the entire Government and the people of the Russian Federation for your support in the process of consolidation and reconciliation in our country.



Incidentally, recently a Russian convoy covered a very difficult route from the East to the West in the framework of such partnership. Its goal was to set up mobile hospitals that will render simply invaluable support to our population that is currently in a very difficult humanitarian situation.



We have big expectations for potential economic and humanitarian exchanges. We will discuss ways of promoting our cooperation.

ProfitableStocksOnly Two videos that came out this week from reliable news sources(BBC & France 24). CAR is getting a huge boost from Russia and in return the Russians will be working on getting mining/exploration going on in the Central African Republic. This is big news because once they make it safe enough for Russia to work in the country, then Axmin Inc. will also have this ability in the near future, thus adding tremendous value back to the stock( 3 million ounce gold deposit on a $15 million market cap company)

This was important to put out for a few reasons:

1) Shows that insiders still own over 80 of the 130.5 million common shares

2) Directors are paying themselves less than $20,000 USD per year and given that the company just made $1.2 million USD in profit, why aren't they paying themselves more?

3) Options are being renewed and expanded.

What does this all mean? In my opinion, I see it as a clear example that they want to make their money through capital gains, aka selling common shares. They gave themselves options last September at $0.05 for the first time. Fast forward 8 months and we now have a clearer picture from their latest news release on how the country is progressing rapidly towards stabilization with the help from the AU, UN, Russia, CAR military.

CAR asks UN to approve China arms deliveries
12th June 2018 - 08:08 GMT | by ​Agence France-Presse in United Nations

RSS
The Central African Republic (CAR) has asked the UN Security Council to approve deliveries of Chinese-made armoured vehicles, machine guns, tear gas grenades and other weaponry for its struggling army and police, according to the request obtained by AFP on 11 June.

CAR Defence Minister Marie Noelle Koyara requested an exemption to an arms embargo, arguing that national forces are ‘confronted with the strength and escalating violence of armed groups whose illegal activities pose a threat to civil order.’

The council imposed an arms embargo on the CAR in 2013 when the country descended into bloodshed but its sanctions committee in 2017 gave the green light for Russia to supply weapons to the national forces.

Council members have until 3:00 pm EST (7:00 pm GMT) of 15 June 2018 to raise objections to the request for the Chinese shipments, according to a letter from the sanction committee's vice-chair.

China is donating the military equipment which includes 12 armoured vehicles and four assault vehicles, 50 pistols, six sniper rifles, ten submachine guns with silencers and some 30 machine guns of various calibres.

The list of equipment from China's Poly Technologies also includes 300 rockets, 500 anti-tank grenades, some 725,000 rounds of ammunition of various types and 15,000 tear gas grenades.

In her request, the defence minister argued that tear gas would help gendarmerie and police deal with crowd control as the ‘units do not currently possess any of this equipment designed to maintain order.’

The request for the Chinese weaponry is backed by a European Union military training mission and by the UN peacekeeping operation MINUSCA, which has come under repeated attacks from armed groups. Five peacekeepers have been killed in 2018.

The CAR exploded into violence following the 2013 overthrow of longtime leader Francois Bozize, prompting France to intervene with its Operation Sangaris.

MINUSCA took over an African Union-led mission in 2014, deploying some 12,000 troops and police, but the country remains overrun with militias, many of whom claim to protect Christian or Muslim communities.

CAR's leaders have repeatedly asked the Security Council to ease the arms embargo to allow shipments of equipment that will beef up the national forces.

France and the UN mine-action service have helped CAR's defence ministry set up armouries and ammunition depots for the deliveries, which the request stated should take place in June 2018.

Koyara wrote: ‘Building up the defence and security forces, alongside MINUSCA, and progressive deployment of those forces safeguards the security of people and ensures the progressive enforcement of state authority.’

Most of the armoured vehicles and other weaponry will be used by special forces trained by Rwanda and certified by the EU training mission. Units of CAR's gendarmerie and police were trained by the UN police.

ProfitableStocksOnly Axmin, Teranga receive exploration permits in Senegal

2018-06-18 16:06 MT - News Release


Ms. Lucy Yan reports

NEW EXPLORATION PERMITS IN SENEGAL WITH TERANGA GOLD CORPORATION (TERANGA)

Axmin Inc. has received confirmation from Teranga that the government of the Republic of Senegal has granted two new exploration permits under the 2016 Senegalese Mining Code for Sounkounkou and Bransan, encompassing the 17 target areas that the company shares an interest in with Teranga.

The initial term of the exploration permits is for a period of four years with a requisite minimum expenditure commitment during this initial period. Thereafter, the exploration permits are renewable two times for consecutive periods not exceeding three years each, provided that Teranga has satisfied its work and expenditure commitments. The Bransan perimeter is 337.3 square kilometres and Sounkounkou is 291.7 square km, which together cover roughly 90 per cent of the prior permit areas.

Axmin chairman Lucy Yan said, "The issuance of exploration permits for the additional targets, upon which Axmin has a [net smelter return] royalty of 1.5 per cent, is very good news for our company."

About Axmin Inc.

Axmin is a Canadian exploration and development company with a strong focus on the African continent. Axmin continues to closely monitor the political situation at its feasibility-stage Passendro gold project in the Central African Republic.

IMF Executive Board Completes Fourth Review Under the ECF Arrangement for the Central African Republic and Approves US$ 32.1 Million Disbursement
July 3, 2018

Completion of the review enables a disbursement of US$ 32.1 million.
Program implementation has been satisfactory in a difficult context. Restoring peace and speeding the implementation of the development agenda are key to sustain the economic recovery and reduce poverty.
Improving domestic resource mobilization is crucial for the scaling up of expenditure in key sectors such as health, education, and security.
On July 2, 2018, the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) completed the fourth review under the Extended Credit Facility (ECF) arrangement [1] for the Central African Republic. The completion of the review enables a disbursement of SDR 22.84 million (about US$ 32.1 million), which will bring total disbursements under the arrangement to SDR 88 million (about US$ 123.7 million).

The ECF arrangement for the CAR was approved by the Executive Board on July 20, 2016 (see Press Release No. 16/352 ) for SDR 83.55 million and subsequently augmented twice to a total of SDR 133.68 million (about US$ 189.0 million, 120 percent of Central African Republic’s quota at the IMF).

At the conclusion of the Board’s discussion, Mr. Tao Zhang, Deputy Managing Director and Acting Chair, stated:

Performance under the ECF-supported program has been satisfactory despite a challenging security environment and difficult humanitarian conditions. The authorities stepped up the implementation of their reform agenda and public investment plan.

“Fiscal policy is broadly on track. The revised 2018 budget includes new revenue measures and remains anchored to the domestic primary balance objective while allowing a scale-up of social and capital spending. Renewed efforts to mobilize domestic revenues, which remain weak, will be critical to support the scaling-up. Given the country’s high risk of debt distress, continued reliance on grant financing is essential to support debt sustainability. The implementation of the investment program for the National Recovery and Peacebuilding Plan will boost economic prospects.

“The authorities continued to implement fiscal structural reforms, which contributed to the strengthening of the treasury single account, improved budget transparency and traceability of domestic revenues. Quarterly publication of budget execution reports allows for better tracking and monitoring of government expenditures. More consideration should be given to streamlining quasi-fiscal taxes, reducing exceptional payment procedures, and strengthening the asset declaration regime. It will also be important to follow through on commitments to strengthen transparency in the management of natural resources.

“The government started the comprehensive clearance of domestic arrears. The transparent repayment of arrears will support growth, bolster the credibility of the state, and strengthen the banking sector.

“The Central African Republic’s program is supported by the implementation of policies and reforms by the regional institutions in the areas of foreign exchange regulations and monetary policy framework and to support an increase in regional net foreign assets, which are critical to the program’s success.”



[1] The ECF is a lending arrangement that provides sustained program engagement over the medium to long term in case of protracted balance of payments problems. Details on Central African Republic’ arrangement are available at www.imf.org/external/country/CAF .

Following relevant exemptions and notifications to the Security Council
Committee established pursuant to resolution 2127 (2013) concerning the Central
African Republic, the country’s security and armed forces received training and
military equipment from the Russian Federation. Coupled with the support of other
partners such as the European Union Military Training Mission in the Central African
Republic, those efforts are facilitating the re-operationalization of FACA.

Ex-Séléka factions, like other armed groups, have, however, maintained their
engagement in the African Union Initiative for Peace and Reconciliation in the Central
African Republic, under which consultations began in November 2017 and the
conclusion of an agreement between the Government and the 14 recognized armed
groups is planned in the coming months

Page 7)
The European Union Military Training Mission in the Central African Republic
is currently finalizing the training of a third battalion of the Forces armées
centrafricaines (FACA) in Bangui. All trained battalions are gradually being
redeployed in Bangui and beyond (see para. 18 below). The Training Mission also
supported the training of 232 demobilized members of armed groups integrated into
the national army, which was completed on 11 May as part of the pilot project for
disarmament, demobilization, reintegration and repatriation

On 26 December 2017, the Committee received a notification from the Russian
Federation regarding the training of Central African defence and security forces,
involving 5 military and 170 civilian Russian instructors for a period of one year. The
first and second training sessions for FACA and the Presidential Guard in the Sudan
and Berengo (Lobaye Prefecture) conducted by Russian instructors were concluded
on 31 March and 30 May 2018, respectively. The third training session commenced
on 30 May in Berengo. The presence of instructors from the Russian Federation
among the Presidential Guard, as observed by the Panel in Berengo on 31 March, was
reported to be part of the training exercise. 2

Russian instructors are currently deployed in Sibut and Bangassou in support of
recent FACA deployments. They were also involved in escorting a convoy
transporting materials for the construction of hospitals, which travelled from
Am Dafok and through the towns of Birao, Ndélé, Kaga Bandoro, Bria and Bangui
between 7 and 26 May 2018. Twenty-four instructors are currently ensuring the
security of hospitals donated by the Russian Federation in Bria, and 20 are doing so
in Ouadda

In Bangui on 12 March 2018, national authorities, with the support of
MINUSCA, started the training of the 500 candidates for the police and gendarmerie
recruited throughout the country (see S/2017/1023, paras. 14–16).6

Page 8)
Since April 2018, Russian instructors have also started the training of 160 policemen
and 50 gendarmes in Berengo as a precondition for assigning them weapons in view of their
deployment.

Between 26 January and 7 February 2018, nine aircraft arrived at M’Poko
International Airport in Bangui to deliver weapons and ammunition as part of the
military cooperation between the Government of the Russian Federation and the
Government of the Central African Republic, and as allowed under an exemption by
the Committee on 15 December 2017

Page 10)
The African Union Initiative for Peace and Reconciliation in the Central African
Republic, which began its activities in November 2017, has achieved some traction
towards meeting the objectives set out in its road map. Through meetings in Bangui
and several rounds of field visits in the country (see annex 3.1), the African Union’s
panel of facilitators documented grievances that now form the basis of discussion for
the planned dialogue aimed at concluding a peace agreement between the Government
and the 14 armed groups.

In accordance with the timetable adopted under the African Union Initiative, a
series of workshops and training seminars are being organized to prepare for the
upcoming dialogue and build the capacity of the main stakeholders, including the
panel of facilitators, the Government, the 14 armed groups and civil society.

In parallel with the African Union Initiative, mediation efforts are also being
undertaken at the local level, including by MINUSCA, the national authorities and
religious leaders. Those initiatives are aimed at establishing a favourable environment
that addresses local conflict dynamics, involving various actors (armed groups, local
authorities, civil society and religious groups) and taking various formal or informal
forms.

The Russian journalists who died in Central African Republic (CAR), on the day of the assassination were attempting to arrange the filming of the gold mine, which the company established by Yevgeny Prigozhin supposedly plans to develop, the Dozhd television channel (also known as TV Rain) reported citing information from the Investigations Management Centre (IMC) for which journalists collected information about Russian military mercenaries.

Before the murder, the journalists Orkhan Dzhemal, Alexander Rastorguyev and Kirill Radchenko went to meet the "fixer" – the UN employee based in the CAR, who was supposed to help them film the gold mines of Ndassima, said the IMC. The journalists were ambushed between the cities of Sibu and Kaga-Bandoro, away from their planned route. The IMC does not have any knowledge of why they deviated from their route.

In mid-July, the Africa Intelligence news outlet reported that Russia had allegedly made an agreement with the government of the CAR for development of the Ndassima gold mine, in return promising to restore the order in the region, writes The Bell. According to the Africa Intelligence, Lobaye Invest which is established by M-Invest company, associated with the alleged sponsor of a Russian Wagner Private Military Company (PMC), Yevgeny Prigozhin, represents Russia's interests in the country. The PMC fighters, in line with the Lobaye Invest interests, are engaged in the transportation from Bangui and the protection of mining equipment . In particular, the Lobaye Invest employees control the recently renewed diamonds mining near Berengo, wrote the newspaper.

The journalist, film director and camera operator arrived in the CAR planning to make a film about the activities of the Russian private military company (PMC), which media associates with businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin (Prigozhin himself denies the link with Wagner PMC). The official investigation version named the killing near the city of Sibu as a result of an armed robbery.

ProfitableStocksOnly Plaintree earns $2.54-million in fiscal 2018

2018-07-30 14:11 MT - News Release


Mr. David Watson reports

PLAINTREE SYSTEMS INC. RELEASES FISCAL 2018 AUDITED RESULTS

Plaintree Systems Inc. has just completed a profitable year.

The Company filed today its audited consolidated financial statements and management discussion and analysis for the year ended March 31, 2018.

For the year ended March 31, 2018, the Company posted after-tax profit of $2,547,514 as compared to a loss of $(2,639,634) and revenue of $19,005,680 as compared to revenue of $12,844,110 for the 2017 fiscal.

"2018 was an excellent year for Plaintree with sales increasing by 48%. We are excited to announce that this dramatic sales growth combined with the divestiture of the Firetrucks division, had earnings increase by over $5 million.

It's important to explain that, starting in fiscal 2014 through fiscal 2016, the market for all of Plaintree's product lines were either stagnant or declining, said David Watson, Plaintree CEO. The Mining industry went into almost complete hibernation, the Aerospace industry began its cyclical move to offshore as much as possible and funding for firetrucks by municipalities continued to languish at lower than expected levels. This all began to change in fiscal 2017. Commodity prices finally began to recover and the Aerospace industry began its phase of reshoring its manufacturing.

This has not only provided us with the excellent 2018 results but also given us a favourable backlog to begin fiscal 2019."

About Plaintree Systems Inc.

Plaintree has two diversified product lines consisting of Specialty Structures and Electronics.

The Specialty Structures Division includes the former Triodetic Group with over 40 years of experience, is a design/build manufacturer of steel, aluminum and stainless steel specialty structures such as commercial domes, free form structures, barrel vaults, space frames and industrial dome coverings, Spotton Corporation, a design and manufacturer of high end custom hydraulic and pneumatic valves and cylinders and Madawaska Doors, a design and manufacturer of premium solid wood doors.

The Electronics Division includes the legacy Hypernetics and Summit Aerospace USA Inc. businesses.

ProfitableStocksOnly Washington State Card Room & Casino Statistics Sheet

**Note** - As per WSGC website, due to staffing shortages, Q4 2016 is the most recent statistics from card rooms that they have.

At the end of 2016 there were 65 card room casinos in the state of Washington. Dawn Mangano joined Evergreen Gaming Corporation in June 2017.

TNA Casinos – Riverside, Palace, Goldies, Chips,
Dawn Mangano Prior Casinos – Macau, Caribbean(Casino & Card Room)

Statistics Link: http://www.wsgc.wa.gov/docs/statistics/cardroom-gross/2016-4.pdf

Out of 65, this is where TNA’s and Dawn’s casinos ranked:

Dawn’s Prior Casinos:
Macau Casino - #3 of 65
Caribbean Casino - #8 of 65
Caribbean Card Room - #42 of 65

Evergreen Gaming Casinos:
Riverside Casino - #6 of 65
Goldies Casino - #11 of 65
Palace Casino - #16 of 65
Chips Casino - #23 of 65

What this shows is Dawn Mangano was able to run casinos quite well and out of the 65 listed on the sheet, two of them placed under 10. Compared to Evergreen Gaming which only had one placed under 10. Three quarters have gone by and things could be different, but I believe Dawn will play a huge role in Evergreen Gaming’s growth.

Another important note since some individuals have been worried about online gambling being a hindrance to Evergreen’s growth:

ProfitableStocksOnly Nice article from Simply Wallstreet. Looking forward to seeing TNA's Q3 results end of November and by then their $2 million Tukwila property sale (currently pending) should be completed. I am estimating that the company will earn at least $500,000 US profit. Their Q3 is always a bit slower and I am being very conservative on the earnings, especially after making over $1 million USD last quarter. Their Q1 profit $377,000 net income but that was also hurt by Tukwila still in operation at the time.

Evergreen Gaming Corporation (TSXV:TNA)
Evergreen Gaming Corporation engages in the gaming operations in the United States. Evergreen Gaming is run by CEO Dawn Mangano. With the company’s market capitalisation at CAD CA$17.95M, we can put it in the small-cap group

TNA’s shares are currently trading at -22% beneath its true level of $0.17, at a price tag of $0.14, based on my discounted cash flow model. This mismatch signals an opportunity to buy TNA shares at a discount. In addition to this, TNA’s PE ratio stands at 7.2x compared to its hotels, restaurants and leisure peer level of 19.4x, indicating that relative to its comparable company group, we can invest in TNA at a lower price. TNA is also in good financial health, with short-term assets covering liabilities in the near future as well as in the long run. It’s debt-to-equity ratio of 52% has been diminishing for the past few years demonstrating TNA’s ability to pay down its debt.

ProfitableStocksOnly Looks like resistance has hit this stock over the last month despite decent earnings. Starting to unload my position and take the 100%+ gain and purchase AXM.V and CAF.V since they are half the price with more potential than TNA.V. Getting two stocks for the price of one is always a good deal and great diversification strategy. What the market has taught us is despite the venture at a three year low, earnings based companies continue to go up. The losses are coming from Marijuana/Crypto and speculative companies that have no capital to work with. Thus buying small caps that generate free cash flow cannot lose in these turbulent times. But AXM being in gold and CAF in coking coal used for steel, these two metals are highly sought after right now.
