iVoice, Inc. Announces Acquisition of American Security Capital Corporation

HOUSTON, TX — (Marketwire – Jan 29, 2013) – IVoice, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: IVOI) announced today that the Company has acquired American Security Capital Corporation (“ASCC“) in order to provide financing and leasing services to the alternative energy industry. In an effort to salvage some value for IVOI and its shareholders, the Company accepted an offer from American Security Resources Corporation to exchange the Company’s ownership of Hydra Fuel Cell Corporation (“Hydra“) for all of the ASCC shares and a note of $100,000. American Security Resources Corporation still controls the Company through its ownership of Preferred Stock shares in the iVoice, Inc.

iVoice, Inc. acquired Hydra in an exchange of debt securities in December of 2011 and took control in January of 2012. Between the December close date and the January change of control, the Company’s previous management issued the remaining authorized Common Stock shares subsequently leaving the Company unable to finance itself and unlock Hydra’s market opportunity,” stated Norris Lipscomb, CEO of iVoice, Inc. “This transaction allows us to provide value to iVoice, Inc. shareholders while at the same time limiting the capital required.

From the great white North (not so white)

Traveling…

Today was a traveling day – first, getting up at 4:45 AM CST was just eye opening (not), but then going through the airport security line was a jolt back into reality.  My trip brought me from Houston, TX to Toronto (Ontario), Canada and then onto Montreal (Quebec), Canada with my final destination Quebec City (Quebec), Canada.  I have to tell you, Canada is clean, the people are friendly, and the beer is great.  But onto my commentary…

English: Québec Province within Canada. Españo...

Québec Province within Canada. Source: Wikipedia.

The TSA security in the United States is ludicrous, but no more invasive than the Canadian version.  It is a perfect example of how bureaucracy leads to inefficiencies in the system – what sounds like a good idea to begin with, namely keeping the airlines safe from terrorists, blossoms into full blown idiocy.  Stripping to step through the scanner may make some feel safe, but when the TSA itself finds gaping wholes that allow their own agents to smuggle in guns and other dangerous materials, it’s time to start cutting.  I mean, get real, a shoe bomber got through, although the underwear bomber did get caught (kudos to those agents).

Mr. Obama has sought the power to eliminate government agencies from Congress, like the Commerce and Education Departments (see this article entitled “Obama seeks power to merge agencies” and the Roll Call article entitled “Consolidation Authority Would Empower Obama, Successors“). I am in no way supporting giving more power to The President, making note that I mean any President – I think President George W. Bush went way too far with the Patriot Act, trampling on our sacred [as far as I am concerned] Bill of Rights.  Here are my suggestions:

  • Mr. Obama should submit specific department consolidation(s) or elimination(s) to Congress and have it vote on that specific request. Republican legislators should play ball on at least eliminating one department.
  • Department of Homeland Security should review TSA practices to determine effectiveness and eliminate those deemed worthless (to determine this, a third party should be used).

Corruven

If you are curious as to why I am in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, I am here for a shareholders’ meeting for Corruven, Inc. – one of my clients that I am helping bring to the public markets in conjunction with Brad Bingham and others.  We were initially asked to do some work out consulting associated with a “Grey Sheet” public vehicle, but we recommended that Corruven do a Direct Public Offering, or “DPO”, instead.  We have helped put together the team that is taking them public in the United States, including:

  • Brad Bingham, SEC Counsel
  • MK CPA’s, PCOAB auditors
  • Phil Scott, CFA (for valuation services and make ready)
  • Jay Pigantello

Here is a little more about the company itself (from their website):

Corruven Inc. is a U.S. based development-stage company that intends to develop and market a lightweight wood panel, Corruven™, fabricated mainly from unrolled “veneer” providing numerous advantages for various applications in different construction sectors. The panels: (i) contain approximately 75% air making them extremely lightweight compared to any other conventional panel; (ii) utilize only 25% of the raw material required to produce traditional panels (e.g.: MDF, HDF, OSB, plywood, etc.); and (iii) use formaldehyde-free glues which increase our distinction in the “green product” market.

In addition, the company will be less dependent on the manufacturing sector’s fluctuations as our future business model focuses on selling the production equipment (franchising) into different sectors while generating revenue both on the sale of equipment and raw materials and ongoing royalties from the output of such franchised equipment.

A very innovative company that you will hear more about in the coming months as they complete their PCOAB audit and file a registration statement.

iVoice, Inc. Announces New Investor Presentation

IVoice, Inc. (OTC: IVOI.PK) announced today the availability of its new investor presentation detailing its “go forward plan” and upcoming fireside chat series with the iVoice, Inc. (“IVOI”) and American Security Resources Corporation (“ARSC”) management team.  The investor presentation provides a roadmap to the ARSC incubation process for Hydra Fuel Cell Corporation and how both shareholder bases will benefit.  The presentation focuses on the delivery of measurable results – namely becoming current on SEC periodic reporting requirements for both IVOI & ARSC and initial delivery of HydraStax® units to Liberty Towers and other backlogged PO’s.

Chairman and CEO Frank Neukomm stated, “The investor presentation has taken longer to complete and make available to investors due to extensive research on our marketplace position undergone by Rhodes Holdings LLC.  We are in contact with multiple institutions concerning funding for the first two phases of our ‘go forward plan’, while ensuring that our previous debt holders are completely satisfied.  As funding negotiations are entered, we will make shareholders aware of our progress.  Our upcoming ‘fireside chats’ will provide us a means of answering many shareholders’ questions concerning our progress and future; we chose the ‘fireside chat’ format instead of a conference call so that we will be able to better answer investor questions that are well thought out.”

Going green and listening in…

Official seal of City of Sugar Land

Sugar Land, TX making a “Green” difference

I personally like to be “green”, recycling everything possible and consuming less – that is, if it is easy and doesn’t cost more than doing what we have done previously.  This is the mantra that I would like politicians in Washington, let that read “Congressmen (and women), Senators, Presidents,…”, understand.  Funding environmentally focused industry is fine if it “helps” them, but subsidizing industries that will never be self sufficient is lunacy.

That is why I am so proud of the City of Sugar Land.  Last year, Sugar Land instituted a new curbside recycling program (and trash pickup) that made it EASY TO RECYCLE.  Yes, easy.  Not only that, but it increased the items that the city would recycle.  This has led to a 200 percent increase in recycling, just in the first four months of 2012.  The Fort Bend Star has a great article on this with specifics entitled “Recycling increase 200 percent in Sugar Land“.

Take a look at the City of Sugar Land’s website page on recycling as well.


Google was listening to your WiFi network at your house

Have you seen the Google vans going around taking pictures for their street level mapping service?  I am sure that you have used Google Maps and been able to drop down to the street level view and thought, like me, that this was the coolest thing since sliced bread.  But here is the scary thing about this is that they were taking a look at what WiFi spots were around – and were they open or not.

As related by Steven Vaughan-Nichols in his article on ZDNet, Google got their hands slapped for this, but not for mapping this information.  It got its hand slapped for not answered the government’s request.  You read the article and tell me what you think..
