Now $3.60, up 30% today on Investor Presentation

- the idea of 80% margin is attractive if patents hold and a competitor doesn't emerge.

Medical technology is about as far as you can get from property development but that has not stopped billionaire Lang Walker finding and backing one of the most promising medical technology stocks listed on the ASX. According to Next Science chief executive Judith Mitchell it was luck and serendipity that resulted in Walker getting the opportunity to be the first significant backer of a company with technology that's had extraordinary early success.

Next Science, which is 42 per cent owned by Walker, has risen from a first day's trading closing price of $1.35 a share to $2.13 on Tuesday. The company raised $35 million at $1 a share but the smart money, including Regal Funds Management, got in early at 80¢ a share before the IPO.

Florida-based American doctor Matthew Myntti was looking for expansion capital after he invented a new method for attacking superbugs that lurk in hospitals and affect people with chronic wounds. The patented Xbio technology used in various medical devices has been proven to eradicate the biofilm that forms a shield around bacteria resistant to traditional forms of eradication such as antibiotics. About 90 per cent of bacteria is referred to as biofilm bacteria.

Mitchell says the sister-in-law of Myntti’s sister-in-law drew the invention to the attention of a researcher working for Walker’s investment arm, which is run by former deal maker Bruce Hancox.

Next Science Ltd (NXS : ASX)
– Global chronic wound care biotech

Next Science is a biotech company focused on infection control. It is the patent holder and developer of a unique non-toxic technology designed to eradicate biofilm based bacteria.

A biofilm is like a bomb shelter for bacteria and tends to be present in chronic wounds that prove resistant to healing. These wounds affect 11.6 million people in US, UK, Germany and Australia annually and they have a treatment cost of $9 billion a year.

Next Science’s core technology has been tested extensively in US hospitals and are proven to be up to 1000 times more effective than the next best treatment available.

The company has 4 products that are U.S. Food and Drug Administration registered that will likely generate revenue in FY19 and FY20.

The company listed at on the Australian Securities Exchange at $1 last month and is now trading at $1.70, giving it a market cap of about $300 million.

Conservative estimates of penetration into wound care markets globally over the medium term would suggest the company has significant earnings growth potential in the coming years.
IFM Investors, small cap pick

..... now $2.30

Commercialising and developing its Xbio technology, which is a non-toxic technology with proven efficacy in eradicating both biofilm based and free-floating bacteria, in a range of products for the treatment of biofilm based infections.

QUOTE
The Company’s technology is currently protected by 15 patents and 47 patent applications throughout the world. The Company’s proprietary Xbio technology is a non-toxic technology which is used in eradicating biofilm and biofilm-protected bacteria. This technology has been validated by extensive clinical testing, multiple FDA clearances and more than 70,000 patient treatments since 2017. Xbio technology is being sold in the US market to eliminate biofilm-protected bacteria in surgery and chronic wound care applications.

The proceeds from the Offer will be used to expand the company’s product development activities, for administration costs and working capital, and to pay for the costs of the Offer. The company is planning to launch four more Xbio-based products by the end of CY 2019.

The company is having distribution agreements with major multinationals 3M and Zimmer Biomet and has a pipeline of additional product development opportunities planned for the short and medium term. The company is expecting the sales of its acne treatment to start in Australia in the second half of 2019 under an agreement with Advanced Skin Technology.

Next Science’s business model is to further develop and commercialize its proprietary Xbio technology in a range of products for the treatment of biofilm-based infections. The Company generates revenues by offering its products for sale primarily through distribution partnerships with major health companies. The distribution through the third party provides Next Science with access to large global markets without incurring extensive sales and marketing expenditures. This allows Next Science to grow while maintaining a focus on ongoing research and development activities aimed at unlocking further healthcare products and market opportunities for its patented Xbio technology. Next Science intends to continue its strategy of sales through established distributors rather than directly market and sell its products itself...

Is anyone aware of how we can get a final transaction statement for those who held shares in Nexes Energy (NXS)at the final bell.

My Accountant wants to complete end of year figures and I cannot locate any data.

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks

Jag

I have had a couple of goes at NXS over the years but got out the last time when Richard Cottee departed. For a company with such promising assets it really is a shame to see it dragged into the mud like this so condolences to those who have lost on this one. I don't know but clearly there is a widely held suspicion that the main cause for this travesty is at the board level (??).

I see the shareholders association rep called it crazy-brave by retail holders to vote against Kerry Stokes and Don Voelte having an easy win. But my impression is that for many it was quite a wilful reasoned move. No doubt some were hoping for a white knight to appear and save them from losing all their dough but I thought other factors are in play. One I think is the hope that the administrators may look into how the board, perhaps diliberately or negligently, made a series of decisions that ended up handing Mr Stokes some great assets for bugger all. Another factor I thought was the prospect that by deciding to let the company go into administration they would trigger the pre-emptive rights of the joint venturers in the Longtom and WA assets, not so much so that those assets would be liquidated at a higher return for shareholders than that being offered by Kerry Stokes but more so that Mr Stokes does not get those assets fullstop.

Anyway I reckon it was a brave stand by current holders and hopefully it was not for naught.

SGH will get the company for nothing because, as its creditor, it will exchange proprietorship for debt obligation. Under those circumstances there will be no other bidder - probably there cannot be and SGH know that.

I sold my painful holding for .019 the other day when I realised the window would be open only momentarily. Good luck to anyone who can does better.

I hesitate to name the high profile market commentator who tipped this one and was, without doubt, the deciding factor in making me buy it in the first place. He said that Nexus was going to be the next Woodside and for a while that looked possible. He is still a good bloke and we can all make mistakes, but now I ignore his tips.

This has brought home to me again, and finally, I hope, that old lesson that we should never buy on tips. For sure tips have cost me a lot more than they have gained.

The shareholders have voted down the paltry t/o offer of SGH and have put the company into voluntary administration after years of the boards inability to realise the potential of the assets.
It would appear that they want the board, who also hold shares, to feel the pain.
I have a small holding left and would rather get nothing than see this board claim accolades for selling us out at such a ridiculous value. Unfortunately SGH will probably get the whole box & dice for next to nothing. grrr.gif

Australian oil and gas company Nexus Energy is in the thick of debt worries and is trying to avert potential bankruptcy after a major outage last month at its only money-making processing facility. Sources close to the company have said that senior bankers at Nomura Holdings and Bank of America Merrill Lynch are seeking to offer Nexus a bridging loan that would be in their own interests. The bankers are understood to be owed nearly $45 million, Dow Jones reported.

The news service is also reporting that two other people say subordinated-note holders want the troubled company to sell assets to recoup their investments faster.

Nexus’s Longtom offshore gas-processing facility in Australia’s Victoria state was shut down last month after an electrical fault occurred that the company still hasn’t been able to fix. Longtom is Nexus’s only source of revenue at the moment.

Longtom generated $14 million in revenue in the three months through December – just barely above its costs of $10.8 million, including interest payments. The company had $10 million in cash at the end of last year, the report said.

Nexus’s shares are in a trading halt...To service a $148.4 million debt pile, Nexus could raise more debt or equity, sell assets or renegotiate its current lending arrangements, the report said. Alternatively, if Nexus is able to fix Longtom soon, it could be able to generate enough revenue to ward off bankruptcy by meeting its debt obligations.

Nexus owns a stake in the Crux natural-gas field offshore Western Australia state, but that is understood to be years away from starting production. Royal Dutch Shell is Crux’s largest shareholder, while Nexus owns 15 per cent.

November 2003... the last time the SP looked this this. I dont know why I've kept this one on the watchlist but despite the 10 - 20cents movement in the last 12 months they're back to where they've started (even a bit lower). Ahhh NEXUS. Anyone who's voted against Richard Cottee has hopefully learned a valuable lesson. In hindsight I dont think the situation would be this crazy atm if he was still in charge and was allowed to try some risky corporate manoeuvres.
