Bluepeak to Accelerate Its Over $100 Million Investment in Fiber Optic Network Expansion Into Oklahoma and Texas

Bluepeak

Bluepeak is accelerating its more than $100 million investment to expand its fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network to over ten new markets in Oklahoma and Texas starting this year. “We’re thrilled to continue building out our fiber-to-the-home network, expanding into new communities and bringing cutting-edge technology and an incredible value proposition to more customers in Oklahoma, Texas and elsewhere,” said Bluepeak CEO Rich Fish. The expansion means Bluepeak’s fiber network will soon be available to more than 100,000 new homes and businesses in new markets across Oklahoma and Texas. Denison, Texas, was the company’s most recent fiber expansion market announced in late 2023, and the new investment by Bluepeak will result in more than ten additional communities in the region benefiting from greater choice among their internet options starting in 2024 and 2025. Since 2021, Bluepeak has been dramatically improving broadband options by bringing fast, reliable, affordable fiber internet to residents of Oklahoma, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota and Texas. The latest network expansion investment is part of Bluepeak’s larger plans to invest more than $200 million to continue building out its network in its currently served markets, reaching more than 200,000 new locations with its fiber network in 2024 and 2025. With Bluepeak service, customers get fiber-fast speeds, equal upload and download speeds and whole-home WiFi. Bluepeak service features all-in pricing, where the price on the website is the price on the bill, with a minimum service tier of 1 gigabit-per-second (Gbps). Homes can get up to 5 Gbps and businesses 10 Gbps and beyond. Each fiber internet speed package includes Wi-Fi powered by eero, along with the added value of eero Secure, which protects devices from online threats, ads and allows for customized content filtering. Bluepeak's fiber network provides reliable connectivity and the bandwidth to connect more devices for internet, streaming, gaming and more. Ultimately, Bluepeak service increases broadband competition for internet consumers by providing a fast, reliable, affordable choice for internet in communities where options have traditionally been very limited. According to the Federal Trade Commission, competition “benefits consumers by keeping prices low and the quality and choice of goods and services high.” In addition, a 2020 report by Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond on “Bringing Broadband to Rural America” determined that broadband access and adoption is linked to increased job and population growth, higher rates of new business formation, higher home values, and lower unemployment rates. Those interested in more information on Bluepeak service availability and details on the construction process can sign up for updates by entering their service address at mybluepeak.com. About Bluepeak Bluepeak is a new kind of internet provider bringing fast, reliable, affordable internet to places that have needed better options for too long.

TNR Gold Corp

TNR Gold Corp executive chairman Kirill Klip discusses the company's strategic moves and upcoming projects with Proactive's Stephen Gunnion. Klip highlighted the purchase of over 6 million shares under its normal course issuer bid program, underscoring the management's belief that the current share price does not reflect the true value of the company's assets. He referenced a report from Fundamental Research Corp., which set a price target of 22 cents per share. Additionally, Klip noted significant progress in TNR Gold Corp's projects, including the Shotgun Gold Project in Alaska, which benefits from rising gold prices and promising drill results. The project's inferred gold reserves stand at over 700,000 ounces, with potential for resource expansion through further drilling. Klip also discussed how Ganfeng Lithium is advancing its Mariana Lithium Project, scheduled to start production in 2024, marking a significant step as TNR Gold Corp transitions to a green energy metals royalty company. This project will provide the company's first cash flow from NSR royalty payments without requiring capital contributions. Furthermore, Kirill discussed the Los Azules Copper Project in Argentina, highlighting meetings with the new Argentine president and potential project implications under new economic policies. The project's expected outputs could significantly increase TNR Gold Corp's revenue streams from NSR royalties. Contact Details v +1 604-688-8158 na-editorial@proactiveinvestors.com

US Gold Corp's Edward Karr says gold's rally is a game changer for junior miners

US Gold Corp

US Gold Corp (NASDAQ:USAU) founder Edward Karr discusses the current gold market and company prospects with Proactive's Stephen Gunnion. Karr highlighted the gold price reaching new all-time highs at approximately $2,400 per ounce, which he sees as a positive trend for the industry, particularly beneficial for junior mining companies. Despite recent fluctuations, the industry remains highly profitable at these levels. Karr shared insights from the European Gold Forum in Zurich, noting a decrease in investor attendance compared to previous years, which he interprets as indicative of a "stealth bull market." Karr expressed optimism for future gold prices, emphasizing strong fundamentals despite potential headwinds from high interest rates and a robust US dollar. He believes that gold's resilience in the current geopolitical and economic climate suggests further upward potential. Karr also pointed to increased central bank and Asian market purchases as signs of sustained demand. Discussing US Gold Corp specifically, Karr detailed the promising economics of its flagship CK Gold Project in Wyoming, which is close to production with anticipated permits. He cited a sensitivity analysis indicating significant valuation increases at current gold prices. The company’s projects in Nevada and Idaho also stand to benefit greatly from the current gold market, potentially leading to enhanced company valuations and increased mergers and acquisitions activity in the sector.

Bango says positive momentum from 2023 has continued into 2024

Bango PLC

Bango PLC (AIM:BGO, OTCQX:BGOPF) CEO Paul Larbey takes Proactive's Stephen Gunnion through the company's 2023 performance, highlighting revenue growth of 62% to $46.1 million and a 29% increase in adjusted EBITDA to $6.4 million, slightly above the range provided in a January trading update, partly due to FX reclassification.

The full integration of the company's Docomo Digital acquisition promises significant future cash generation and profitability. The acquisition has also realised £21 million in annualised cost synergies, with additional savings identified. DVM, identified as a growth engine, has seen an expansion, with nine new contracts signed, increasing the total to 18 by year-end, and an additional four in the first quarter of 2024. This growth has propelled the ARR from £5 million at the end of 2022 to £11 million by the end of Q1 2024. Larbey said Bango's market position has been strengthened in North America, with the company now holding contracts with three of the top five operators, and it is exploring opportunities beyond telecommunications, venturing into financial services. The company maintains a positive outlook for 2024, with analyst forecasts suggesting a 16% revenue growth, a target already surpassed in Q1 with a 20% growth.

CoverSelf appoints Ashish Singh, Advisory Partner at Bain & Company, as Board Director

CoverSelf

CoverSelf, a unified platform for healthcare claims and payment integrity, is today announcing the appointment of Ashish Singh, Advisory Partner at Bain & Company, as Board Director. This development comes on the heels of the company’s recent close of a $8.2 million seed round. Ashish is a well-known and deeply respected Bain & Company leader. He led Bain’s global Healthcare and Life Sciences (HLS) practice from 2012 to 2018 and served two terms on Bain’s global Board of Directors in the same time period. Ashish also founded Bain & Company’s India office and was at its helm as Managing Director (2005-2011) and Chairman (2011-2014). Over the years, he also co-founded Bain’s Enterprise Software, Media & Entertainment, Pharmaceutical and Payer practices. Ashish’s expertise lies in corporate and BU strategies, market entry strategies, operational improvement, organisational effectiveness, M&A, healthcare IT, and large-scale corporate transformation programs. “We are thrilled to welcome Ashish onboard as our Board Director. He is a veteran in this space and brings invaluable experience in formulating overall strategy and US GTM strategy, as well as in-depth knowledge of the US healthcare system and health plans. Not to mention, his broad network of relationships across the industry will benefit us in the long term,” said Rajasekhar Maddireddy, Co-founder of CoverSelf. “We’ve been busy since our funding announcement. We are already live as the secondary editor in three health plans, with an expansion to another four over the next six months in the works. We are in full-scale implementation with a top 10 health plan, and executing a PoC with a Top 5 health plan. These are showing remarkable results, wherein the platform is processing 25 times more claims in the same time window than was done earlier. We will soon start initial moves into markets adjacent to the payment integrity (PI) space via collaboration with a focused set of partners to bring broader integrated solutions to our clients.” CoverSelf was founded in 2021 by US healthcare domain experts Rajasekhar Maddireddy and Raghavendra Pawar to tackle the ever-increasing claims inaccuracies and waste. The company aims to democratize the healthcare claims and payment integrity industry by creating a first-of-its-kind, fully open and transparent solution that empowers payment integrity teams in health insurance companies (payers) to transparently resolve health claims with hospitals and medical practices (providers). CoverSelf’s purpose-built platform utilizes multiple approaches, including the smart use of GenAI, to reduce waste while identifying new savings opportunities. The platform empowers payers to adapt to claims and payment inaccuracies by enabling them to configure their policies and logic in simple English-like language or use simple policy-specific templates, overcoming the fear of losing IP and fostering innovation and new concept releases without technical dependencies. “According to recent reports, the $9 billion PI industry has grown at around 7% CAGR in recent years. This just shows the inherent complexity of the billing processes. The truth is, over the years, there has been a perceptible negative impact on providers' experience with payments, and trust in payers has taken a significant hit. This has resulted in ballooning waste and improper payments. Given this scenario, I’m glad to lend a helping hand to CoverSelf’s mission,” said Ashish Singh, Board Director of CoverSelf. “I will work closely with the co-founders and top management to increase Coverself's visibility amongst healthcare payers and technology partners and also bring my expertise to assist them in corporate and market strategy. What we are doing in CoverSelf is not just building a product that is looking to solve a few pain points; we are on a once-in-a-lifetime mission to truly democratize healthcare claims and payment integrity and restore faith in the US’s healthcare ecosystem!” About CoverSelf CoverSelf is a generational leap forward in healthcare claims and Payment Integrity architecture, built from the ground up for healthcare-specific use by passionate domain experts and strong technology professionals with decades of experience in addressing the pain points faced by Providers and Payers when dealing with the latest technological advancements. Founded in 2021, CoverSelf’s Payment Integrity Platform engages modern technologies to address payment leakage & claims inaccuracies while remaining transparent & accessible to Payers. The platform empowers payers to prevent and adapt to the ever-evolving claims & payment inaccuracies. We also help you reduce complexity and administrative costs with our unified healthcare dedicated platform.
