Mar. 23 - Entered Sales Representative Agreements with Highmark NY, LLC. for the Greater New York City Metro Area, effective immediately.
In the past six months, SHRC has made some notable progress. The Scottish Water Horizons project has won some awards and cemented further into a Joint Venture (JV) agreement (Bandwith). SHRC also made head ways into the Australian and US Market. In Australia, the agreement with ETS has already beard fruits within six months of initiation. In the US, three new representation agreements were initiated; Midwest Machinery, Johnson and Barrow (WA, OR), and Highmark, NY. In addition, the DC Water project seems to be on schedule. On the product development front, the New Piranha and Mako shows that the company intends to go after multi-dwelling and single dwelling units which is synergistic to it's commercial focus.
However, earnings are still lagging and SHRC continues to be in a loss position. While a brief update on the RENEW Energy Partners LLC and Prospect Silicon Valley was provided six months ago, none on the Beijing Ruibaoli were received. For the California Alliance, details on Title 24 Testing and UL Certification are still outstanding or have are yet to be communicated to the market.
In an interview with SmallCap-Investor.de (June 27, 2017), the CEO (Lynn Mueller) reported that he believed that shareholders would be pleased of the company results in the next 6-12 months. He claimed that much of the work on the Scotland project will be done within 3 to 9 months as the project needs to be completed within 18 months. In addition, he specified that no financing would be required, the company should be able to leverage existing contract against their need for credit. He also reminded shareholders that the contract in Scotland were "guaranteed" and he believed that the company had "turned the corner..."
Well, looking at the trading activity reveals that SHRC is still unable to capitalize on the recent progress. The options granted at $0.44 and $0.60 cents definitely are good incentive. However, SHRC is trading well below the 52 week high of $0.96 cents and closer to the 52 week low of $0.305. Though, SHRC has improved communications with shareholders, it still have to work to gain back credibility with the market. Specifically, the recent stock consolidation, and the lack of progress on the RENEW Energy Partners LLC project are a factor. Nonetheless, SHRC does have a proven technology and its CEO holds a few patents to his credits. Below is the forecast this remainder of the week, perhaps SHRC is coming (a)round the corner.
