Autonomix Medical Inc. Covered in Benzinga Article Highlighting Innovative Nerve Treatment Technology

Autonomix Medical, Inc.

New York, April 15, 2024 - (Plato Data) -- Benzinga has published a new article on Autonomix Medical Inc. (NASDAQ: AMIX), featuring the company's groundbreaking approach to peripheral nervous system (PNS) disorders. The Benzinga article delves into the critical role of the PNS in human health and highlights how Autonomix Medical is pioneering with its catheter-based microchip sensing array technology. The article provides a comprehensive look at how Autonomix Medical is redefining treatment protocols for nerve-related disorders. By targeting the root causes associated with the PNS, rather than just managing symptoms, Autonomix Medical's technology offers a novel solution that combines both detection and ablation of problematic nerves in a single procedure. This approach, likened to a "GPS" for nerve treatment, allows for precise identification and treatment of the nerves involved, enhancing the accuracy and effectiveness of procedures. In a notable application, the company is focusing its efforts on managing pancreatic cancer pain—a condition notoriously difficult to treat due to its proximity to critical nerves. The technology's high sensitivity in detecting neural signals—up to 3,000 times greater than existing technologies—promises not only to improve outcomes in pain management but also to significantly reduce the need for opioids, addressing a major public health challenge. This exposure in Benzinga underscores the potential of Autonomix Medical's technology to transform the field of electrophysiology and pain management, potentially tapping into a market exceeding $100 billion. As the company progresses with its clinical trials, the successful implementation of its technology could revolutionize treatment approaches for a wide range of diseases, offering hope to millions of patients worldwide.

Oworkers Celebrates a Decade of Excellence in Multilingual BPO Services

Prodigy Press Wire

Oworkers, a leading provider of business process outsourcing (BPO) services, commemorates 10 years of providing top-notch solutions designed to meet its clientele's diverse needs. Founder Stephane Guillemin has propelled the company to the forefront of the industry, positioning it as a global leader in socially responsible outsourcing. Initially, Oworkers focused on providing data entry and processing services in its nascent stages. It immediately gained momentum, expanding its service portfolio and including content moderation and artificial intelligence-related (AI) services, such as annotation. This development enabled Oworkers to become a frontrunner in delivering BPO solutions customized to meet the shifting needs of its clients. Its team of seasoned experts with over 25 years of collective experience in the industry allows Oworkers to serve clients from various industries and sectors, from aggregators and marketplaces to Commerce platforms and AI companies. In 2017, Oworkers obtained ISO 9001 certification, showcasing its commitment to quality and adhering to international standards. It also attained ISO 27001 accreditation four years later. It is significant to note that throughout its remarkable journey, the company has established delivery centers in strategic locations across the globe. Oworkers capitalized on Antananarivo, Madagascar's growing reputation as a prime destination for data processing outsourcing services and focused on French and basic English projects. The region then became the center of the firm's operations, known for its cost-effectiveness and high-quality deliverables. The innovative outsourcing company also found an ideal setting for its multilingual BPO operations in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, in 2020. The city boasts Europe's lowest operating costs and a pool of highly skilled multilingual talents, making it an ideal location for Oworkers to continue its mission of solidifying its position as a premier BPO solutions provider within the Eurozone. Oworkers also seized the opportunity to leverage Cairo, Egypt's rich talent pool and favorable business environment, and established another multilingual BPO services center. Because of its diverse workforce proficient in Arabic, English, Italian, Spanish, Greek, and Turkish, Oworkers' Cairo headquarters became renowned for its efficiency, reliability, and outstanding linguistic capabilities. Besides its initiatives for growth and expansion, Oworkers stands out for its commitment to the well-being of its employees. "Many BPO providers fail to prioritize the welfare of their annotators. We at Oworkers recognize that our success relies on our employees. We do our best to create a conducive work environment for them. This means a great work atmosphere, a balanced work-life ratio, and no overtime demands," Guillemin supplies. Oworkers' low employee turnover rate, which stands at 1.7% in 2023 compared to the industry average of around 20%, attests to the company's success in fulfilling its mission of prioritizing its employees' well-being, professional development, and overall welfare. This high retention rate is one of the drivers of Oworkers' long-term stability and growth. The company also demonstrates dedication to socially responsible outsourcing practices by employing full-time staff rather than freelancers or subcontractors. Because it operates in countries like Madagascar and Egypt, where the majority of its workforce consists of women, Oworkers helps empower countless families to break free from the cycle of poverty and achieve a higher standard of living. As it celebrates its 10th anniversary, Oworkers looks forward to continuing its journey of innovation and redefining the standards of excellence in the BPO industry. "We promise to remain dedicated to delivering value-driven solutions that drive operational efficiency and enhance client satisfaction," Guillemin assures.

West Red Lake Gold CFO Harpreet Dhaliwal Explains Exactly How the Gold-Linked Notes Work

West Red Lake Gold Mines Ltd.

April 15, 2024 – The Newswire – Global Stocks News – In a press release dated April 4, 2024, West Red Lake Gold Mines (TSXV:WRLG) (OTC:WRLGF) announced that it has closed a second and final tranche of its private placement of gold linked notes, bringing the total value of notes issued to US$27,165,631, equivalent to about $37 million CAD. “Gold-linked Notes (GLNs) are a type of equity-based structured note,” states DBS Treasures, “Similar to Equity Linked Notes (ELNs), except the underlying [asset] is gold, rather than stocks.” Each Offering Unit contains notes worth USD $1,000 and 710 warrants. Each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of WRLG at C$0.95 until March 19, 2029. “The Notes represent unsecured obligations of the Company, bear a 12% per annum coupon, calculated and payable quarterly in arrears, and will mature on December 31, 2029,” states WRLG. “The gold-linked notes are an unusual but innovative financing structure,” WRLG CFO Harpreet Dhaliwal told Guy Bennett, CEO of Global Stocks News (GSN). “The key advantage of this structure is that in depressed equity markets it allows us to raise money with minimum share dilution.” “We evaluated 4-5 different financing options,” continued Dhaliwal. “And found the gold-linked notes to be the best option for our existing shareholders. Shane Williams, our CEO and I personally invested in the gold-linked notes.” Dhaliwal explained to GSN that for the next two years, the gold-linked note holders will receive 12% interest per annum, about 280% higher than the yield on a Canada 2-year government bond. As the debt repayment begins on March 31, 2026, gold-linked note holders will continue to be paid 12% per annum on the remaining balance, until it is paid off on December 21, 2029. “With the gold-linked notes,” Dhaliwal continued, “You have five years expiry on the warrants. Our share price has risen about 27% since we closed the first tranche of gold-linked notes of March 20, 2024, to 94 cents. If West Red Lake Gold share price rises, say another 40% in the next five years, to $1.31, the warrants will be an additional significant sweetener”. “If the gold price drops to $1,600/ounce you will still get the $1,800 minimum,” stated Dhaliwal. “So, there’s protection there. But if the gold price stays at $2,300, where it is now. That’s a delta of $500/ounce, which goes into the pocket of the investor. That’s a 27% premium, in addition to the 12% interest, and the.95 warrants.” Click Image To View Full Size   WRLG Gold-linked Notes Transaction Highlights Gold placed in escrow into a gold trust account   Beginning March 31, 2026, principal reduced on a quarterly basis.   Final payment on December 31, 2029.   Notes will amortize based on a gold floor price of US$1,800/ounce.   Excess proceeds (spot price - floor price) paid to investors as a premium.   The company’s flagship asset - The Madsen Gold Mine – is fully permitted, with a brand-new 800+ tonne per day mill, a tailings and water treatment facility. [ 1 ] On April 9, 2024 WRLG announced the arrival of a second underground diamond drill at the Madsen Mine. “The addition of a second underground drill at Madsen will expedite our efforts in de-risking the resource and building a runway of high-confidence mineable inventory that will be critical during restart of mining operations,” stated Shane Williams, WRLG President & CEO.” Previously announced highlights on the North and South Austin drilling can be viewed at the following links: West Red Lake Gold Intersects 27.15 g/t Au over 10.28m and 22.31g/t Au over 8.5m at North Austin Zone – Madsen Mine (November 21, 2023)  West Red Lake Gold Intersects 47.44 g/t Au over 3.2m, 21.64 g/t Au over 7m and 296.83 g/t Au over 1m at South Austin Zone – Madsen Mine (December 5, 2023)  West Red Lake Gold Intersects 9.15 g/t Au over 3.3m and 10.66 g/t Au over 2.6m at North Austin Zone – Madsen Mine (February 7, 2024)  West Red Lake Gold Intersects 25.12 g/t Au over 5.5m, 39.46 g/t Au over 2m and 18.60 g/t Au over 4m at South Austin Zone – Madsen Mine (March 4, 2024)  Click Image To View Full Size   “There were three good reasons to buy these gold-linked notes,” stated Dhaliwal. “1.  You want the 12% return on your capital investment.  2. You believe the stock price of WRLG will rise above.95 cents and 3. You believe the spot price of gold will rise.” “I’m an employee of WRLG, so my opinion is biased,” Dhaliwal concluded. “But, as an investor, it was not a difficult decision for me to participate in the gold-linked notes.” References: SRK Consulting.

Bitdeer Releases Full-Year Results For 2023 – Revenue Up And Forecast For Continued Growth

Benzinga

By Austin DeNoce, Benzinga Bitdeer Technologies Group (NASDAQ: BTDR), a leader in Bitcoin mining and high-performance computing, reported its financial results for the full year ending December 31, 2023. Overall, the company showcased both growth and challenges in a market notorious for its volatility and capital intensity. With that in mind, and as competition in the space heats up, identifying the outliers capable of long-term growth is going to be critical. Here is a simplified breakdown of Bitdeer’s 2023 performance and what investors need to know going forward. Financial Performance Revenue Growth: Bitdeer’s total revenue increased to $368.6 million in 2023, up from $333.3 million in 2022. The company reports that this 10.6% growth reflects healthy growth in its operations driven primarily by its self-mining and hosting services. Net Loss Reduction: Bitdeer managed to reduce its net loss from $60.4 million in 2022 to $56.7 million in 2023. Despite still operating at a loss, the reduction indicates some level of financial improvement as it gradually balances growth with efficiency. However, it should be noted that Bitdeer incurred expenses for going public, including a $33M one-time listing fee, meaning the year-over-year improvements were even better. Adjusted Profit and EBITDA: While Bitdeer’s adjusted profit declined from $30.3 million in 2022 to $22 million in 2023, its adjusted EBITDA rose to $100.3 million from $93.2 million. Unlike competitors including Marathon Digital (NASDAQ: MARA) and Riot Platforms (NASDAQ: RIOT), Bitdeer doesn’t hold bitcoins on its balance sheet, meaning its Adjusted EBITDA doesn’t include mark-to-market adjustments for the value of Bitcoin. If you remove these adjustments across its peers’ results and compare pro-forma Adjusted EBITDA, Bitdeer reports it had the highest 2023 adjusted EBITDA in the industry. Strong Cash Position: With cash and cash equivalents sitting at $144.7 million as of the end of 2023, Bitdeer appears to be in a solid liquidity position to support its operations and expansion plans. Strategic Achievements And Future Plans In 2023, Bitdeer achieved a significant milestone by mining 3,694 bitcoins, a 74.8% increase over the previous year. This feat was largely made possible through its expanded self-mining capacity from the energization of its Gedu data center in Bhutan as part of its ongoing efforts to diversify and grow its global mining operations. This accomplishment also coincided with notable technological advancements, including the successful testing of its first proprietary Bitcoin mining chip, the 4nm SEAL01, If nothing else, these developments are a testament to Bitdeer's leadership in mining technology innovation. Additionally, the company embarked on substantial infrastructure expansions in Norway and Ohio, as well as deployed an NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD H100 system. By operating across three main business lines – self-mining, hash rate sharing (with a focus on Cloud Hash Rate) and offering comprehensive hosting solutions – Bitdeer has broadened its reach within the Bitcoin mining market. Moreover, Bitdeer has allocated 25% of its workforce to R&D, showcasing a commitment to diversification and capturing new market opportunities. Other Key Developments Early this year, Bitdeer underwent a significant leadership change when its founder, Jihan Wu, stepped into the CEO role. That signaled a pivotal shift toward enhancing the company's growth and innovative capabilities, especially in the chip development space. Further underlining its ambitious trajectory, the company announced plans to bolster its self-mining hash rate by approximately 3.4 EH/s. The move highlights Bitdeer's dedication to scaling its mining operations and solidifying its position as a stable player in an increasingly competitive industry. Investor Takeaway For interested investors, Bitdeer’s financial results could potentially present a promising picture worth looking into. As an industry leader in adjusted EBITDA (when evaluated on a pro-forma basis), the company continues to show growth potential, largely driven by technological advancements, strategic expansions and continued progress in operational efficiencies, but it will require capital to fund its growth plan. Its commitment to diversifying its revenue streams and enhancing its technological capabilities could likewise position it well for the future. The Bitcoin mining industry is still very much a growth story and companies like Bitdeer, capable of sustainable expansion and efficiency gains, could be instrumental in that narrative over time.

AI Revolution Takes Sales and Marketing by Storm

MarketJar

In the fast-paced world of business, staying ahead means embracing the transformative power of technology. At this point, companies either have to get in on artificial intelligence (AI) or risk getting left behind. For sales and marketing, AI's impact is far-reaching, from automating routine tasks to personalizing customer interactions and everything in between. Its predictive analytics capabilities allow for sharper lead targeting, ensuring sales teams concentrate their efforts on prospects most likely to convert. It also leads to operations that are quicker, more connected, and ultimately, more productive. AI-powered tools, including chatbots and CRM systems, are not only streamlining interactions but also providing invaluable insights that help fine-tune sales strategies. The result? A significant boost in sales productivity and a more engaging customer experience. New research from GoDaddy reveals that entrepreneurs are rapidly adopting generative AI (GenAI) to enhance their small businesses, with expectations high for gaining a competitive advantage. 1 According to a January survey of over 500 US small business owners conducted by GoDaddy, a whopping 75% believe GenAI will give them an edge over similar-sized businesses, while 68% feel it will allow them to compete more effectively against larger entities. The uptake of GenAI among entrepreneurs has seen a significant increase, with 73% of respondents trying out the technology and 26% applying it to their business operations. This marks a substantial rise from GoDaddy's initial survey published in May 2023, which showed only 38% had experimented with GenAI, and a mere 11% had leveraged it for business purposes. On February 26, GoDaddy introduced Airo, an AI-powered solution designed to democratize the use of AI for business enhancement. Airo simplifies the process of starting or scaling a business by offering automated solutions for creating logos, websites, emails, payment systems, and social media posts, requiring no technical expertise from the user. GoDaddy isn’t the only one using this powerful tool to help small businesses improve sales outcomes. Leading digital marketing solutions company Wishpond Technologies Ltd.

The Growing Market Demand For Waste Energy Solutions And How Sky Quarry Has Prepared Itself To Meet It

Benzinga

By Jeremy Golden The dawn of a new industrial world is upon us as countries across the globe strive to create new sustainable strategies, reduce emissions and increase clean energy consumption, leading to significant market demand for clean technologies. Pushing forward and staying on track will require massive deployment of clean energy technology, including renewables and energy-efficient construction. Compared to other parts of the economy, spending on renewable energy should be front-loaded between 2023 and 2030 to align with carbon budgets that keep global warming well below 2°C, experts say. Clean power has a vast influence as it supports the decarbonization of multiple sectors, such as manufacturing and transportation. With a commitment to promoting circular economic principles, clean-tech company Sky Quarry, Inc. is ready to help meet these rising needs with its plans to divert waste, maximize resource efficiency and help create a system where materials can be reused, recycled or repurposed to keep them in circulation for as long as possibl e. Sky Quarry’s Sustainable Solutions – Converting Waste To Energy An oil production and refining company, Sky Quarry was formed to utilize technologies that facilitate the recycling of waste asphalt shingles (WAS) and remediation of oil-saturated soils by using its “ Waste-to-Energy Solutions,” which convert toxic waste into sustainable oil. This recycling of finite materials decreases landfill waste and reduces harmful emissions in the process. According to the EPA, about 15 million tons of recyclable asphalt shingle waste gets dumped into North American landfills annually, the equivalent of over 22 million barrels of oil per year. Rather than letting it go to waste, Sky Quarry’s closed-loop recycling process can recover both material and oil through the use of proprietary extraction technology. This process allows the reuse and recovery of these materials, including up to 95% of the asphalt bitumen, and helps create sustainable infrastructure products while reducing emissions and dependence on foreign oil or new sources of material. Recycling one ton of waste asphalt shingles yields 800 pounds of aggregate granules, 100 pounds of fiberglass, 600 pounds of limestone powder and 1.5 to 2.0 barrels of oil (500 pounds). Oil can be processed into Liquid Asphalt Cement (asphaltic tack coat) and sold to the paving industry suppliers at about $140 a barrel, while recycled clean solids and oil can be sold to refineries at market spot prices or under fixed-term supply contracts. Tapping Into The Carbon Credit Market As of 2023, the global carbon market is a $398.4 billion industry growing at a CAGR of 29.4% through 2028, with companies willing to pour big money into renewable energy projects and purchase carbon credits to offset their emissions. Sky Quarry's business model allows the company to potentially earn a considerable amount of these carbon credits. This could lead to the contribution of millions, if not tens of millions, of dollars to the company’s bottom line as the carbon market matures. Sky Quarry’s trajectory could place them as first-in-class in the renewable energy sector, where new investments skyrocketed to $358 billion in the first six months of 2023, according to a Bloomberg report. This marked a 22% rise compared to the start of last year and an all-time high for any six-month period. In the U.S. and across Europe, the sector is experiencing growth. Last year, the European Union announced a new Renewables Energy Directive. The goal was to raise the percentage of renewable energy in the EU’s overall energy consumption to 42.5% by 2030, with each member expected to contribute to that target. The global green technology and sustainability market is projected to reach $19.83 billion in 2024, with significant growth anticipated for the next decade as the market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 19.7% over 2024-2032. Sky Quarry, which believes its business model is just as sustainable as its technology, is prepared to capitalize on this monumental shift.
