The business allows a USB device to reach into a database. Many of the clients were US military and security agencies. A recent acquisition gives them good forward prospects.

He uses this company’s services. They are also using their technology as a basis for expanding into new areas, providing potential growth over the next year. He has owned the stock in the past, doesn’t own it now, but sees a lot of potential.

They continue to lose subscribers. A great product, though, which he uses. But the decline in subscribers make this a non-buy.

Their product is a USB stick that you push into computers. Unfortunately, the US government and many others have looked at this as a security risk. VIQ Solutions (VQS-X) just introduced new SAS models, which you should consider instead.

Makes specialty software for extremely robust and secure access. They have a high recurring revenue model. Currently working extremely well with the US government. Everyone is hopefully expecting a dramatic increase in the number of installations. If that happens, it will flow immediately to the bottom line.

You have to remember that the company is profitable. That is really important, particularly with smaller companies, because it is hard for small companies to raise money these days. You want to have them free cash flow positive, and this one is. They are not ripping the leather off the ball as far as growth, but what they have is a product called MobiKey which allows you to remotely, on a totally secure basis, reach into a computer from anywhere. US and Cdn governments uses this in a big way. The question is, will there be a broad rollout beyond the existing government users. Profitable.

Just announced that their average revenue per subscriber is up 8%, the average number of subscribers is up about 12% and the average dollars year-over-year is up about 17%. For the 1st time, a Canadian legal firm has used this because people are becoming more concerned about security. US government is now starting to embrace it. The big catalyst is looking for a huge uptake in US government users. There is pretty good quarter on quarter increases in underlying subscribers. Hopefully you can Buy, throw in a box and a year from now see it at more than $0.04-$0.05.

Clients include US Department of Homeland Security, Defence and others. Their product offers simplified security without a ton of overhead.

A top 5 personal holding. They have their costs in Canadian dollars and their revenues in US dollars. They are improving approximately 20% because of declining currency. The catalysts are getting a large number of clients. They are already profitable and they have cash in the bank. They are hoping for increased sales to the US government. They don’t have stiff completion.

It is like watching paint dry as it trades between $0.04 and $0.05. Has been profitable, which is very good for a small company. Their product is an equivalent of a memory stick i.e. you put it in your computer giving you access to your other computers anywhere in the world. The US government is continuing to roll the product out. Thinks there is testing going on in the UK with the banking community. If they were to sign a significant contract, there would be a dramatic improvement for their outlook.

Not in the active part of his database because it is quite small. Recently reported, and earnings were profitable for the 1st time in a long while. It did contain some positive extra ordinary events, but it looks like that in the next 12 months the company will be profitable. Their specialty is a device that allows you to remotely look into your computer from any place globally on a totally secure basis. Used by the US military. It is hoped the US government will be using more of it. A recurring revenue model. Not well covered because it is very small, but the product is quite good.

Great technology. The US government uses it. It’s a recurring revenue model. They need to add more subscribers. Every subscriber that they add basically falls to the bottom line. Thinks there are opportunities for them in Europe on the banking side. Unfortunately you have to see subscriber growth and as yet they have not landed the big contracts that everyone has been waiting for.

Has a product that goes into the USB port on your computer and allows you to reach into any computer, where you have authorization, around the world. Has been trading in a band of 3.5 cents to 5 cents. Currently at break even on earnings and cash flow. Home and security just renewed their contract. Expecting significant orders in the next 12 months.
