“Growing industry demand for our innovative SaaS platform and capitalizing on the true power of our recurring revenue business model enabled Accelerize to achieve its first full year of profitability, with record revenues that grew 146% year over year,” said Accelerize New Media Inc. Chairman and CEO Brian Ross. “Given the increased number of new clients and greater usage among existing clients, we fully expect this momentum to continue through 2013 as we continue to scale our business both domestically and internationally.”

“Reaching profitability was an important milestone, providing validation for our business model and enabling us to prudently reinvest in R&D and build shareholder value,” added Mr. Ross. “With advertisers demanding a measurable return on investment for their marketing initiatives, we are confident that the R&D investments we have made and continue to make will result in ongoing and significant market share gains as the industry embraces performance-based marketing.”

OPEL Technologies Inc. Announces New Laser by ODIS Subsidiary as Key Achievement in POET Monolithic Optoelectronic Platform

TORONTO, ONTARIO and STORRS, CONNECTICUT–(Marketwire – Dec 4, 2012) – OPEL Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:OPL)(OPELF) (“OPEL” or “the Company”) today announced that its U.S. affiliate, ODIS Inc. has successfully produced an integrated laser device, thereby achieving a key milestone in its Planar Optoelectronic Technology (“POET”) process, that enables high-performance devices fusing optical and electronic devices together on a single chip.

By allowing the production of components with increased speed, density, reliability, and lower costs, POET offers the semiconductor industry the ability to push Moore”s Law to the next cadence level, overcoming current silicon-based bottlenecks, and potentially changing the roadmap for a broad range of applications, such as smartphones, tablet and wearable computers.

After years of increasingly successful development, the fabrication of the first Vertical Cavity Laser (VCL) utilizing ODIS”s patented POET GaAs III-V technology is a significant success. Incremental progress over the years has led to what many consider to be the next phase of semiconductor development which is to surpass the capabilities of complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology for the next generation of high speed low power applications. It is now widely believed that CMOS technology advances have reached a saturation point.

The new laser serves as the basis for chip-to-chip interconnection, and complements numerous other optoelectronic devices already demonstrated by ODIS – including heterostructure field effect transistors (HFETs), optical thyristors, pulsed lasers, and super-radiant light emitting devices – all able to be monolithically fabricated via the POET process.

Penny Stocks – A Simple Definition for Beginners

Essentially, a penny stock is one that trades for pennies. It can be an extremely volatile market, as investors expect a large return for a small amount of input. These types of stocks lack liquidity, have limited following and disclosure, small capitalization and also have large bid-ask spreads. However if you do it right, you can reap the rewards and they tend to be traded over the counter, using pink sheets and OTCBB. Penny stocks are usually traded outside of the major market exchanges, due to the small amounts that they trade with and it takes a lot of research and education in the subject to really become knowledgeable about them.

In some countries, penny stocks are also known as cent stock. While there is really no definition of the penny stock that is accepted all over the world, the definition above is pretty standard. Many people put money into penny stocks, as well as other opportunities such as Bullion Vault. With any investment opportunity, it is important to make sure that you have as many facts as possible before making a decision. If you get it right, there can be good rewards, however it is definitely worth making sure that the opposite does not happen.

The OTCBB, or the OTC Bulletin Board provides over-the-counter equity securities and services to their members. To become a member, you must subscribe and then you can enjoy all the benefits that will be available to you. The equity securities that the OTCBB provides, are not available on the NASDAQ or national stock exchange, so are therefore unique to subscribing customers. Penny stocks tend to have limited listing requirements and not very many regulatory and fulling standards. They usually belong to small companies with speculative shares that are not liquid.
