A2Z Technologies (TSXV: AZ)

A2Z Technologies Canada Corp. is an innovative technology company based out of Israel, specializing in military technology and expanding into the civilian markets. A2Z has been operating for over 30 years and has a client base with 75 recurring clients, including the Israel Defense Forces, Security Forces, and Ministry of Defense among others. A2Z plans to leverage their cash flow-generating core-business to expand into the civilian robotics and automobile markets.

According to Zion Market Research, the Military Robotics space is expected to reach $53.93B by 2027 for a projected CAGR of 13.5%.(Summary of Report)

Highlights:

Core Business: A2Z's line of products include unmanned remote-controlled vehicles of various sizes designed for intricate bomb disposal, counter terrorism, and firefighting, as well as energy storage power packs/generators. A2Z also provides maintenance services to both external and in-house complex electronic systems and products to over 75 clients.

A2Z has been an Israel Ministry of Defense contractor for over 30 years and a significant portion of its business is long-term service contracts.

Expansion into Civilian Markets: To drive growth, A2Z plans to adapt its military technologies for the much larger civilian markets. One patent-pending product is a capsule (FTICS) that prevents vehicle fires resulting from collisions. A2Z has also been granted a patent for a smart vehicle cover device that protects automobiles from natural elements while the vehicle is parked and is stowed away safely in the vehicle's bumper when not in use.

Fuel Tank Intelligent Containment System (FTICS): In the event of a collision, the FTICS installed into the fuel tank prevents the ignition of fuel, thereby mitigating the spread of fire and explosion, minimizing risk to human life and property damage. According to the NFPA, from 2014 to 2016, an estimated 171,500 highway vehicle fires occurred in the United States, resulting in an annual average of 345 deaths, 1,300 injuries, and $1.1 billion in property loss annually.

Management: CEO Bentsur Joseph's previous venture, Comfy Interactive, was acquired by Shamrock Holdings, the family investment firm founded by Roy Disney. Previously, Bentsur Joseph was the chairman of Elad Hotels whose holdings include the Plaza Hotel in New York City.

Bentsur Joseph has a ~64% ownership stake in the business with 30,000,000 shares subject to an escrow agreement.

NXT-ID INC. (OTC QB: TICKER $4.25)
MOBILE SECURITY BEYOND THE PASSWORD

STEPHEN WAITE AND KRIS TUTTLE - OCTOBER 15, 2013

Research Report October 15, 2013 - Soundview Research

"NXT-ID's Mobile-Bio technology platform is the foundation for three new product offerings designed primarily to mitigate security risk of mobile devices. These products include a modular facial recogni-tion system called Mobile-Bio FaceMatch,TM a separate, physical biometric secured electronic wallet called The Wocket,TM as well as a portable biometric device called Mobile-Bio Sensor,TM which allows an individual access through multiple devices to a protected database or server.

This segment has been active in terms of acquisitions. The first generation biometric security compa-ny (L-1 Identity Solutions) was acquired by security giant Safran for $1.6B in 2010. L-1 was predomi-nantly enterprise focused and didn't address mobile or online commerce. Apple bought mobile secu-rity firm AuthenTec for a reported $356M, predominantly for their fingerprint sensor technology.

Our initial IV case suggests a stock value of $10.90/share if the company can execute on their plans."
