"Puerto Rico loves baseball for many reasons, we are proud that so many excellent players call us home. This sport is part of our tradition, of who we are, of our history. It is impossible to speak about our Island without mentioning Roberto Clemente and so many others," said Mariela Vallines, Executive Director of the PRCDA. “It’s a great honor to elevate the positive image of Puerto Rican baseball since the late 1800s until today by sharing historical baseball data and recognizing the Puerto Rican baseball stars on MLB teams in 2023.

Insider Buying: Hedge Fund Legend Makes A Series Of Stock Purchases In Premium Digital Smart Home Fitness Company Interactive Strength (NASDAQ: TRNR - “FORME”)

FORME

By David Willey, Benzinga Notable hedge fund manager Bradley Wickens has made a series of insider purchases adding to his position of more than a 10% holder in premium digital smart home fitness company Interactive Strength Inc. (NASDAQ: TRNR - “FORME”). FORME is a digital fitness platform that combines premium connected fitness hardware products with live virtual 1:1 personal training. The Company completed an IPO in May and aims to establish itself as a leader in the premium fitness training market by combining at-home convenience with cutting-edge personal training services through its award winning connected hardware products. Wickens, a UK-based hedge fund manager and founder of Broad Reach Investment Management, started with a 10% ownership stake in Interactive Strength. Wickens has made a series of share purchases since Interactive Strength’s initial public offering (IPO), and he increased his number of TRNR shares by over 120,000 during the month of May. In his most recent purchase, he acquired 20,000 shares of stock at an average purchase price of $5.71, for a total of $114,200. This brought Wickens’ direct share ownership to 1,699,891 shares, for a value of $9.7 million. When a senior company executive, board member – or in this case, a major shareholder (someone who owns more than 10% of a company) – purchases company shares or other securities, it is referred to as insider buying and is frequently viewed as an indication that those within the company are optimistic about the future value of the company’s share price and the overall growth trajectory of the company. Purchasing activity from a seasoned hedge fund manager like Wickens would likely be viewed as particularly suggestive of outside optimism for the company, even if Wickens were not an insider. However, Wickens doesn’t represent the only hedge fund interest in Interactive Strength. Block.one, a UK-based investment firm, recently purchased shares of TRNR common stock at $8 per share, bringing its total securities owned to 3.2 million. The online and digital fitness market has grown significantly since the pandemic, with the U.S. representing the largest segment of the online fitness market. According to the Company’s research, they believe the total addressable market (TAM) includes nearly 10 million households, representing a total potential market of $18 billion. Learn more about Interactive Strength Inc. by visiting their website. FORME is a digital fitness platform that combines premium connected fitness hardware products with live virtual personal training and coaching to deliver an immersive experience and better outcomes for both consumers and trainers. FORME delivers an immersive and dynamic at-home fitness experience through two connective hardware products: 1. The FORME Studio (fitness mirror) and 2. The FORME Studio Lift (fitness mirror and cable-based digital resistance). The Studios uniquely transform to host a variety of workouts and activities, returning to an elegant, full-length mirror when not in use. In addition to the Company's connected fitness hardware products, FORME offers expert personal training and health coaching in different formats and price points through Video On-Demand, Custom Training, and Live 1:1 virtual personal training.

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/ma3UlYWugug To mark World Refugee Day, which occurred on June 20th, organizations like Airbnb.org and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) continue to raise awareness about the ongoing needs of refugee populations around the world and connect them to free emergency stays. From refugees fleeing events in Afghanistan to people displaced by the war in Ukraine, Airbnb.org is proud to work with partners like IOM, as well as Airbnb.org Hosts and donors, to offer welcoming places to stay during unimaginable times of crisis. Kristen Berlacher, Director of Programs at Airbnb.org, and Amy Pope, Director General Elect of IOM, talked about this important collaboration. Since its founding in December 2020, Airbnb.org has worked with IOM and organizations around the world to connect nearly 200,000 refugees and asylum seekers with free, temporary stays, including: ○ 135,000+ refugees from Ukraine ○ 34,000+ refugees from Afghanistan During the media tour, topics that were discussed included: ● How the state of refugees and asylum seekers evolved in recent years and where there has been the greatest need. ● Why providing temporary housing is a key part of refugee relief and how temporary housing benefits both refugees and their local host communities over the long-term. ● How the partnership between Airbnb.org and IOM has been instrumental in addressing the temporary housing needs of refugees and asylum seekers internationally. ● How people can support ongoing refugee relief efforts by Airbnb.org and IOM. Humanitarian crises like those that forced people to flee events in Afghanistan and the war in Ukraine often capture the attention of the world and compel people and organizations to take action. Long after the headlines fade, however, the needs of those displaced by these events endure.

NextFerm Technologies announces a commercial manufacturing agreement for the production of ProteVin™, its vegan protein, with Kothari Fermentation and Biochem, a subcontractor in India

NextFerm Technologies Ltd.

In the first stage, the production setup will enable an annual production capacity of $4M in revenues The completion of the production setup is expected during the fourth quarter, 2023 (Yokneam Illit, July 5, 2023) – NextFerm Technologies Ltd. (TASE:NXFR), a food-tech company developing ProteVin™, a vegan, fermentation-based, non-GMO protein alternative and other innovative yeast-based nutrients, announced today that it has entered into a commercial manufacturing agreement with a subcontractor in India, Kothari Fermentation and Biochem, for the production of ProteVin™. The agreement relates only for production services and doesn’t include IP transfer to the subcontractor. The company's management has worked diligently to find a solution to establish a production setup that will be in line with its financial means, so that, in this stage, this agreement replaces the establishment of the manufacturing plant with the subcontractor in North Macedonia, and will allow the company to supply market demands with a lower investment than planned and with the ability to increase future capacity. In the first stage, the production setup will enable an annual production capacity of $4M in revenues. In addition to the production equipment that the company has purchased so far, the Company estimates that the necessary investment needed for the completion of the production setup and the purchase of the production equipment for the first stage will be approximately $2M. This investment will be financed from the company's own resources. The completion of the production setup is expected during the fourth quarter, 2023. The building in which the production facility is planned to be built already exists and has needed utilities, and most of the equipment needed to operate it has already been purchased by the company and/or is in the possession of the subcontractor and is available for the company’s use. Starting 2023, five food and dietary supplement companies in the USA and Europe have launched vegan products based on ProteVin, including Swanson, one of the leading and veteran nutritional supplement brands in the USA, Spacemilk and Mushroom Design. In the five products, the ProteVin™ brand is labeled on the packaging. The company has a wide and growing base of food and dietary supplement companies, including global companies, that are examining ProteVin for use in a variety of alternative products. In addition to ProteVin, the production facility in India will allow the company to also produce and market the by-product Yeast Extract, which is obtained in the production process of the protein. This product is an ingredient that enhances taste and flavor in the food industry. The company has developed a first generation of Yeast Extract based on a unique technology developed by the company (a yeast strain and unique processes) that contributes to the quality of the Yeast Extract products and the profitability of these products. The Yeast Extract market is estimated at approximately $1.9 Billion in global annual sales, with a growth of approximately 8.7% which is influenced, among others, by the growth of the alternative food market[1]. This is one of the most important and largest categories in the flavors market. Boaz Noy, Chief Executive Officer of NextFerm, said: "In past few months, we have focused on finding an efficient and flexible production alternative to the production facility that was planned to be established in North Macedonia, which will be in line with the company's capabilities and financial resources. The production setup that will be established in India will allow us to meet the growing demand for ProteVin, with a lower investment than planned with the ability to increase future capacity. ProteVin™ is the only alternative protein on the market today with a neutral taste and an animal-like nutritional value, and we believe it will become a leading solution in the global alternative protein industry. In addition, the company will be able to initiate the production and launch of Yeast Extract, which is a vegan food ingredient that enhances taste and flavor and with a high and growing demand in the food industry." About Kothari Fermentation and Biochem Kothari Fermentation and Biochem, traded on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE:KFBL.BO) is a manufacturer of baker’s yeast, Instant Yeast, Active & Inactive Dried Yeast, Cell walls, yeast extract, alcohol yeast and other yeast based products.
