Have a proven and innovative project to separate proteins from canola but in terms of manufacturing is going to have to get its yield up and they are having trouble executing. Also running a little short on cash. High risk.

Extract protein from canola. Attempting to get to commercial levels of production. Initially had some problems with foaming in the process. Once they are back up in production there'll be moving to a 2nd shift, which allows them to pull Level 1 proteins. Real earnings come when they start pulling a much more valuable part of proteins. This will take $10 million of CapX and a year of development. Sold his holdings.

Expected to lose $0.07 in 2011 and earn anywhere from $0.01 on a median basis to $0.03 on an average basis, which puts it at 60X PE multiple. If successful in being able to produce commercial quantities, they will start construction of the 2nd plant in N. Dak and looking out will double expansion again.

Assuming they can get the frothing part of the manufacturing process under control it will be quite attractive. Extract protein from canola. It can be used in baking and cooking. By end of year they should be up to speed. Loss of 6 cents for 2011 and earnings of 3 cents for 2012. Once production comes up to speed they will break ground on a second plant in North Dakota. On a 3-5 year basis, someone like VT might get interested in the company. Was a recent price hike in protein prices.

New process for extracting protein from canola seed. Pilot project was successful. Always hesitant when companies are going from pilot stage to full production. It always takes longer and is more costly than is expected. Once it is proven that it is expected, that would be the time to Buy. (Has a Short position.)

Extracts protein and oil from canola. Plant is just ramping up to production. Recently scaled back his holdings, partly due to analysts shaving back earnings estimates by about 15% in the last 90 days and also 2011 being forecast as just break-even. Expects the 2nd plant in North Dakota will be built.

2010 has been a very eventful year. Brought Saskatoon plant into production and now going into continuous production, which has to continue for 2 months before they can sell product into the food industry and the market is nervous. Very important milestone. Also looking to add a 2nd plant in 2011, which will require more capital.

Crushes canola to extract oil and then has to extract protein. The big margins occur when they extract isolets. Expecting to have equipment in place and producing commercial volumes in Q1 of 2010. If successful $2 per share would be a good price because of the lower risk. The real key is between Jan/10 and March/10. Reasonable speculation for a toe in the water.

Canola oil. Must go through 3 phases of production between now and the end of the year. Now in the 1st phase. Should be a 50% ROE in the 2nd phase. In the 3rd phase they should be able to pull out protein and should give 100% ROE. Their advantage is a low temperatures solvent giving them lower operating costs and better protein. Very speculative.
