If fish/krill get their good oil from algae where is this oil pill from SZYM algae? A krill/fish oil pill without the krill/fish oil taste would be an easy home run and should be a grand slam. It's a billion dollar business that is ripe for the next generation of product. Mark-ups would be through the roof.
when a new CEO is announced. If they do it right and get a big player (credibility) with lots of energy and contacts in the food industry it should be a no brainer. Food is a multi-hundred billion dollar business with thousands of manufacturers. TerraVia makes the world's best oil and now proprietary flour with a 100,000 MT capacity production facility so it should just be a matter of signing up manufacturers for the next ingredient revolution in food which is going to take credibility and energy and contacts.
As in 100 million dollar Unilever scam? As in 400m Moema plant scam?
David, you're street trash. Posting videos of your Tilapia ponds out off hwy 99, always talking trash, denying SZYM makes algae oil when you can buy it at Gelsons etc. etc. It's entertaining but at a Jerry Springer/Heraldo level. They're laughing at you not with you.
I'm betting you live in a trailer and drive a really old rusty bucket. It's 50/50 you even have air conditioning in your white trash mobile mansion.
Nobody else really cares.
The future is finally here. Wolfson is out and a new CEO will be coming in. Nothing to do but sit and wait for the announcement.
Hopefully, it will be a major food company CEO who wants to take a shot at revolutionary product.
1. Bring on a high energy CEO who knows the food industry (and tell Wolfson he'll be working from home from now on). Even better bring on a CEO and his entire team to take over.
2. Do Deals. Lots and lots of deals. Should be easy when you have the best products in history.
3. Publicize your deals. Put out press releases all the time. Foods that use your products are better. Foods that use your products are healthier.
TESLA is for "people with BRAINS" who... live MOSTLY in places like Boston, Chicago, NYC...THE PEOPLE "that are with it" AND ALSO HAVE THE "BUCKS"
Exactly. All 1% of them. You unwittingly make my argument for me.
key management and Board appointments that along with our new investor group will broadly expand TerraVia’s market knowledge in the food and nutrition arena, and a crucial new $200 million plus supply agreement with Unilever.
This agreement is a major expansion of our long running partnership that is expected to serve as a cornerstone of our specialty personal care ingredients business and provides a cost plus baseload that derisks the plant and makes everything that follows more profitable.
That's a 200m contract with just one customer-- Unilever.
Only when a stock is able to hold a move up for at least a couple of days is it time to consider buying on "good news."
There wasn't enough good news. The CEO stepping down isn't worth a double. The rest was all window dressing and hype--bottom line they are still trying to find profitable product lines. But if they bring in a true food industry giant as CEO, it could make the stock double immediately. That's how important this next decision is.
Nah, no way their problems are because of GMO. The oil is not GMO so not even a factor. See below. However, the algae flour is so that might stop some people but not many. Most corn and soy is GMO and they sell hundreds of billions of it a year. You're just not going to hold progress back by screaming GMO every time. Not all GMO is equal.
"Myth 4: If the sugar feeding into Solazyme's Clinton, Iowa, facility is derived from genetically modified corn, then products coming out of Clinton are genetically modified.
While organic dairy must be sourced from livestock fed non-GM animal feed, the origin of sugars doesn't fall under the same guidelines -- and for good reason. When animal feed is consumed, so, too, are all of the proteins and compounds contained within a corn kernel (DDGS contains fewer nutrients, but this still applies). That includes the tiny fraction of proteins altered by modern biotechnology tools.
But sugar is not GM, regardless of its origin. The carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms that comprise each molecule formed without genetic modification. It may sound like a loophole, but it's just science. In fact, products in the United States and European Union may be labelled natural if they are "derived directly from an animal or vegetable material". Industrial organisms and the products they produce are natural. "
That cc was completely scripted by professional marketers. It read like an advertisement more than a cc. The only thing of substance they said was a 200m 5 year contract with Unilever and minuscule 28m in investment from some food players all of which was grossly outweighed by their statement that they are going to burn at least 70m in cash this year. Another 70m minimum gone in 2016! And for what?
Why would SZYM burn through 70m in cash this year if things were so great? How man years can it possibly take to get Moema up to scale? Why doesn't SZYM have contracts in place for 100 million tons of product right now? There's only two possible answers: Supply or Demand. Maybe something will change in the future but right now telling the world you're going to burn through the last of your cash this year is about as bad as news could get at a cc.
How much money did SZYM blow on biofuels and tailored oils and drilling algae and make-up? How much money did SZYM blow on plants that are now shut down? Several hundred million and it was all for naught. He should never show his face around this company again. He single handedly took this company down. What an embarrassment.
Here's SZYM's answer from the cc:
it all starts with algae. Before there were foods like Chia, Acai, Kale, or Quinoa there was algae. Nothing can be more heirloom, more ancient or more original. It’s the origin of our food chain and unbeknownst to many, we’ve been consuming algae oils for as long as we’ve been eating fish.
Those omega-3 oils we were all told to eat salmon for are not produced in the salmon or any other fish for that matter. They’re made in algae and make their way up the food chain to the fish we eat.
I am a master of algae
That's not algae David, that's a fungus. If the off the shelf sprays don't clear it up, take your medi-cal card and sit at a CHC until they give you a prescription.
What the? The Netherlands? Did you really just defer to the Netherlands to try and make a point? Because Tesla is going to maintain a 25b market cap because of the 600 cars a year it sells in the Netherlands?
Here's your reality check. In Rotterdam NY, it's $1.90.
But I did like the Denny's place-mat remark. That's a good one. But how would you know what a Denny's place-mat says?
They sell perpetual licenses meaning it's a one time fee for licenses. 39,000 customer means nothing.
Absurd. They just projected 850m in business for 2016. They have 700m in cash. They have no debt. It's a top tier company by any standard.
When it doesn't have any. That's the one and only time.
SZYM hasn't put out a press release of a significant achievement in ... in.... in.... hell, I can't even remember the last time I saw a good news press release from SZYM.
It speaks volumes about the state of SZYM.
About the only question left now is "where is all the money going"? How can you spend 100m a year and achieve nothing?
If they can poach a truly powerful CEO from the food business and, at the same time, if the Wolfson can promise to disappear and never ever speak again on behalf of the company.
General. A clinical hold is an order issued by FDA to the sponsor to delay a proposed clinical investigation or to suspend an ongoing investigation. The clinical hold order may apply to one or more of the investigations covered by an IND. When a proposed study is placed on clinical hold, subjects may not be given the investigational drug. When an ongoing study is placed on clinical hold, no new subjects may be recruited to the study and placed on the investigational drug; patients already in the study should be taken off therapy involving the investigational drug unless specifically permitted by FDA in the interest of patient safety.
Phase III halted in its tracks.
Right, because I really want to drive for 45 minutes and then sit at a charging pump 45 minutes then drive 45 minutes then sit at a charging pump 45 minutes as I zig zag my way to my destination from charging station to charging station.
Covereight--you're about a year behind. This was public news a year ago and the subject of a class action.
Now, it's on to food. So unless you have something to say about food, you're just banging an old book.
