Digitonic Ltd

UK-based technology-driven Investor Relations (“IR”) media company, Digitonic, is pleased to announce that it expects to scale up the distribution of its revolutionary new “NextGen Newswire” platform rapidly following its successful launch in January. (Click the url above if you don't see a NextGen Newswire video) NextGen Newswire leads Digitonic’s latest range of innovative IR services and distributes press releases to a global audience in an original and highly engaging way. Digitonic has already begun to onboard clients to the service on 12-month contracts and is confident in converting the vast sales pipeline it has established during its successful international marketing effort this year. This included pitching and demoing NextGen Newswire to more than 40 potential clients at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC) in January. Likewise, Digitonic has signed a reseller agreement with iRPub to promote the product across all its US clients listed on the Nasdaq, the New York Stock Exchange, and the OTC. iRPub focuses on helping publicly traded companies substantially increase their market awareness, and reaches an engaged network of more than six million investors. Digitonic is also in talks with two UK-based companies to agree similar reseller agreements. These would see the companies promote NextGen Newswire to businesses listed on the London Stock Exchange and Alternative Investment Market (“AIM”). Grant Fraser, CEO of Digitonic, said: "We are excited about the rapid scaling up of our NextGen Newswire platform, which has already garnered interest from potential clients worldwide. Our innovative IR services, coupled with our relentless focus on results, compliance, and technical innovation, have positioned us as a leading player in the IR marketing space. We are confident that our new range of products, including NextGen Newswire, will provide us with multiple sources of recurring revenue and take our business to the next level." Looking forward, Digitonic’s international marketing efforts will continue in early March with its attendance at the annual Mineral Exploration & Mining Convention held by the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (“PDAC”) in Toronto. The event, which has been held annually since 1932, hosts more than 30,000 attendees from more than 130 countries. With NextGen Newswire, Digitonic rapidly creates engaging videos of its clients’ upcoming newsflow narrated by a styled avatar using press release content. These are then distributed across the world’s most-visited financial content platforms including Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters and MarketWatch, among many others. Alongside its unique AI Avatar video feature, NextGen Newswire offers powerful analytical and retargeting functionalities to provide unparalleled end-to-end service in its market. Early feedback has shown the platform to also offer a powerful accompaniment to companies’ existing newswire providers. Several clients have found success in distributing NextGen Newswire’s videos in the trading sessions immediately following the initial release of news to engage as many existing and potential investors as possible. Paul Ruffolo, Director of iRPub, commented: "We are thrilled to partner with Digitonic to promote NextGen Newswire to our clients listed on the Nasdaq, NYSE, and OTC. Our focus has always been on helping publicly traded companies increase their market awareness, and Digitonic's cutting-edge technology aligns perfectly with our mission. We believe that NextGen Newswire's unique AI Avatar video feature will revolutionize how companies approach IR marketing, and we are excited to be part of this journey with Digitonic." Digitonic’s pioneering technology has repeatedly driven record financial results since the Company’s launch in 2011. In 2021, revenues reached an all-time high of over $16 million propelled by the business’s increasing success in the IR space. The Company has now completed the development of a range of next-generation IR products and is beginning to commercialize them across publicly-listed companies trading on the NYSE, Nasdaq, OTC Markets, TSX, CSE, NEO, LSE, AIM and ASX. NextGen Newswire is the first product to be launched in this range. Digitonic expects its new services to provide it with multiple additional sources of significant recurring revenue, both in strong markets and any weaker ones that may occur in the future. The Company will re-examine a public market float as a potential source of funding for the services’ long-term growth following their launch. As well as targeting entirely new areas of the IR market, the Company’s new platforms complement its existing services entirely.

FanDuel Named ‘Most Innovative Sportsbook’ by Sports Betting Journalists in New HPL Digital Sport Study

HPL Digital Sport

HPL Digital Sport, (HPLDS) a specialty division within Hot Paper Lantern focused on building brand, partnerships and user growth within the sports betting, sports technology and iGaming industry, today released its new study State of the Sportsbook: Media Scoreboard on Innovation. The study measures the opinions and perspective of the media who regularly write about the sports betting industry on topics like: which are the most innovative sports betting operators, the technological elements most likely to make the most impact in 2023 and which new entrants to the market can challenge current leaders in the space. To contrast the media’s opinions, HPLDS also interviewed more than a half-dozen sports betting industry consultants to obtain their views. “In a very nascent industry like sports betting, the media hold a very important position as the group that sits across the entire market, talking to every company and executive on topics ranging from technology, new products and services, pain points, wins and innovation. While many opinions and anecdotes have been shared on who leads the market, there has never been a definitive study completed to put quantitative and qualitative data behind these ideas,” said Ed Moed, CEO of HPL Digital Sport. “As thought leaders in the space, we felt it necessary to create this content but also accentuate this data with commentary and opinions from the most respected and visionary sports betting consultants in the industry. We hope this series of studies and our Media Scoreboard become the industry standard bearer for years to come.” When it comes to the most innovative operator, it’s FanDuel and everyone else In a weighted ranking, the media named FanDuel as the most innovative sports betting operator in a landslide, scoring 55 points. FanDuel more than doubled the points of the Second Place and Third Place finishers, PointsBet (24) and DraftKings (20), respectively. Rounding out the Top 5 list included BetMGM in Fourth Place with 9 points and Bet365, Caesars and Circa all tied for Fifth Place with 7 points. Among new sportsbooks joining the market, the media believe 2023 is Fanatics’ year to lose When choosing the most anticipated new entrant in the market, the media overwhelmingly chose Fanatics as the company they feel will have the biggest impact in sports betting. The potential Disney (ESPN)/DraftKings partnership came in second while Betr rounded out the top three. Subsequently, the media survey also felt Fanatics’ announcement to officially launch its sportsbook was the top story of 2022 showing a betting operator “revolutionizing the market and leading to potential change in 2023.” Fanatics’ launch beat out other top stories including the Disney (ESPN) teaser announcement of an upcoming strategic partnership with DraftKings, DraftKings integration with Amazon’s Thursday Night Football package and FanDuel’s announcement of its pullback of promotional dollars. The media prioritized User Experience and Engagement as the most important innovative practice in sports betting In an industry deep in an arms race to secure new and sustainable users, when given a list of the most innovative practices, the media found User Experience and Engagement to be the industry’s top priority, followed by: User Experience and Engagement Product Differentiation Development of Next Generation Technologies Fiscal Responsibility Brand Development Strategic Partnerships Influencer Deals In-play betting seen as the innovation most likely to gain momentum in 2023 In-play betting secured 42%, and the majority of the response, from the media as the innovation most likely to gain momentum in 2023. While in-play betting drew the most attention, other imminent innovations mentioned highlight the expanding betting ecosystem and capabilities users can begin to expect to gain traction in the near future including, the evolution of sports betting content (17%), universal wallet (8%) and the gamification of sports betting (8%). “The consultants we interviewed all agreed with the media’s assessment of the sports betting innovation landscape. However, adding to the media’s perspective, the consultants warned this is not the time for any company, new entrant or incumbent, to rest on their laurels,” said Moed. “Innovation isn’t about winning the moment but a mindset of continuous improvement. The companies and sportsbooks who will make moves on our Scoreboard in the future will undoubtedly have a deep focus on the end user experience, as well focusing on any real ways each can be unique in its own value proposition to sports bettors.” The State of the Sportsbook is the first industry study collecting the data and opinions of the sports betting media and the most influential industry consultants, as well. HPLDS was the first to capture the data behind needs, behaviors and wants of the emerging sports bettor in its flagship study, The State of the New Sports Bettor in 2020. In 2021, HPLDS was the first company to obtain data and insights from sports betting executives in its State of the Sports Betting Industry: User Expectations vs. Executive Realities study. The study was conducted between Jan. 12-23, 2023, leveraging the insights of more than two dozen top-tier business and sports betting trade reporters covering the business of the sports betting industry.

Evofem Biosciences Inc. (OTC:EVFM): Here Are Latest News & Updates

TopNewsGuide - Market News & Commentary

Women’s sexual and reproductive health is one of the more important things that is now being addressed by the healthcare industry in a much more focused manner. There is significant demand for products that fulfill the unmet needs of women’s healthcare and a company that is now making significant strides in that direction is Evofem Biosciences Inc. (OTCMKTS:EVFM). The company is involved in the development and commercialization of innovative products which are meant to fulfill the unmet sexual and reproductive health needs of women. The first product from the company that had been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration is Phexxi, an on-demand, hormone-free prescription vaginal gel contraceptive. The product is sold in boxes of 12 pre-filled applicators and can be applied 0-60 minutes prior to the sexual act. As it happens, Evofem was in the news on February 28 when it announced that the telehealth major SimpleHealth started offering its product Phexxi. The fact that the company’s product would now be available to a larger number of customers could be seen as a major positive. Saundra Pelletier, who is the Chief Executive Officer of Evofem, spoke about the latest development as well. She noted that the latest partnership was part of the company’s long-term strategy to make the product far more accessible to women who may need it. However, that is not all. The offering from SimpleHealth is also going to offer important resources, contraceptive counseling, and education about women’s health. SimpleHealth also offers online prescriptions, free home delivery, and automatic refills as a result it is going to open up a dynamic new market for Phexxi. At this point SimpleHealth has as many as 120 branded and generic products including contraceptives. However, Phexxi would be the first hormone-free contraceptive that it would offer. While the partnership with SimpleHealth was a major deal for Evofem, the company made an announcement about another major milestone for Phexxi the day before on February 27. The company announced two more patents related to Phexxi and its labeled indication had been listed in the Approved Drug Products with Therapeutic Equivalence Evaluations that is published by the FDA. In popular parlance, the publication is called the Orange Book. It was another significant development and one that could only be a positive for the product in the long run. Pelletier noted that it was an important step for the company since it was going to further strengthen its patent portfolio. However, she went on to add that Evofem was focused on expanding its intellectual property portfolio in the United States and abroad. The original patent for the product had been issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office back in May last year and it would expire in March 2033. The two newly listed patents cover contraception with the use of L-Lactic Acid Phexxi formulation and compositions with L-Lactic Acid. Both of which are specifically related to the Phexxi formulation from Evofem.

TopNewsGuide - Market News & Commentary

The growth that has been enjoyed by the beverage industry has been quite significant and hence, it is perhaps not a surprise that there is far more interest in the sector.

The company is based out of Delaware and works through a range of subsidiaries. Some of its subsidiaries are Gold Leaf Distribution LLC, Kona Gold LLC, and HighDrate LLC. All the different subsidiaries have managed to come up with their own unique products. For instance, Kona Gold LLC came up with a hemp-laced energy drink range and HighDrate manufactured the first-ever CBD-laced Energy Water in the beverage industry. The subsidiary Gold Leaf Distribution had been created by Kona Gold Beverage to fulfill its distribution needs and for entering new markets swiftly. For a company like Kona Gold distribution is a hugely important element of the business, and earlier in the week the company made a significant new announcement on that front. On February 27 Kona Gold announced that it's Ooh La Lemin Lemonades were going to be made available for sale through the Hot Spot convenience stores located in North Carolina and South Carolina. At this point in time, the company has 10 SKUs of Ooh La Lemin and out of those 6 are going to be sold through Hot Spot. Those six SKUs are going to comprise 3 non-sparking variants and 3 sparkling variants of Ooh La Lemin. The products in question are going to be distributed by MR Williams, which is the company’s new distribution partner for the South Carolina and North Carolina markets. MR Williams is primarily focused on Convenience Stores and Food Service. The products are going to be sold through 40 Hot Spot convenience stores. The Chief Executive Officer of Kona Gold Robert Clark spoke about the latest development as well. He summarized the whole thing and noted that he was looking forward to growing the company’s brand through the placement of the Ooh La Lemin products at the Hot Spot convenience stores. It is also important to note that Kona Gold has been expanding its distribution footprint for the Ooh La Lemin brand at a breakneck pace and has signed up a number of distribution partners across the United States. Earlier in February, the company had announced that it had inked a distribution agreement with the firm A&B Distributors. By way of this agreement, the company’s 12oz Sparkling Ooh La Lemin and 16oz Ooh La Lemin Lemonades are going to be distributed in the states of Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Texas. The distribution partner is going to provide Kona Gold with distribution services in the states of Oklahoma and Arkansas in addition to a total of 19 counties in the state of Texas. The distribution footprint in Texas is also going to include the Dallas market and its vicinity.

Foothills Exploration Inc. (OTC: FTXP) Acquires 545-Well In Kansas And Oklahoma

TopNewsGuide - Market News & Commentary

The oil and gas sector has almost always drawn interest from investors and there are many companies that investors could consider tracking at this point. One of the companies which may be worth looking into at this point is Foothills Exploration Inc. (OTCMKTS: FTXP), which is involved in the oil and gas sector and focused on providing the energy needs of the present and the future. The company has decided to hone in on two main strategies for the purpose of building up its portfolio of assets. One of those is its focus on the creation of a number of high-impact oil and gas assets. The second strategy is related to investments in the geothermal and hydrogen projects through its New Energy Ventures division for the purpose of being involved in a low-carbon future. The company was in the news last week after it announced that it had been successful in completing the acquisitions of some wells and leases in the state of Oklahoma and Kansas. In its press release, Foothills noted that up until there was sufficient green energy to fuel the world, oil, and gas would remain the sources of energy. However, the company also stated that natural gas is going to play a bigger role all over the world by being a source of clean and reliable fuel. The acquisitions would provide Foothills with an inventory that could last many years and help the company with its production targets. Additionally, it was also noted that these assets would help the company in generating double-digit growth in 2023 and also in the following year. There were substantial reserves at those assets and the infrastructure was already in place for low-cost development. It was in January this year that Foothills completed the 100% acquisition of the Oklahoma-based limited liability company Jubilee Exploration LLC. The company owned as many as 545 shut-in oil and gas wells. These wells and leases are situated in Kansas and Oklahoma. Earlier on in the year on January 31, 2023, the company had managed to complete the acquisition of as many as 21 shallow oil and gas wells. All of those wells are located in Comanche County in the state of Oklahoma and are spread across a total of four leases. The wells are actually stripper wells and have an average depth of 1200 feet. On February 13 Foothills announced that it would start a return-to-production initiative for these wells. Once these wells are back in production then all the wells combined would produce 20 to 25 barrels of oil daily. At the time, it was also announced that Foothills was going to start the return to production work with immediate effect. Each well was expected to get into production capabilities systematically and it was in the week of February 20 that the wells were expected to get into production. On January 27 this year, the company provided another key corporate update that investors ought to know about. It had announced that back on November 25 last year, it had reached a settlement agreement with its biggest institutional investors. By way of that agreement, as many as 11 convertible promissory notes were canceled and extinguished. The promissory notes had been issued by the company at different stages between the years 2018 and 2021.
