NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 30, 2015 / Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of CorMedix, Inc. (“CorMedix” or the “Company”) (NYSE MKT: CRMD).  Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.

The investigation concerns whether CorMedix and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. 

On June 29, 2015, an article by The Pump Stopper published on Seeking Alpha article reported, among other adverse facts, that: (i) a review of German court transcripts and corporate records indicated that the patent at issue in the company’s infringement lawsuit against Tauropharm is invalid, making the lawsuit a”$1.3-2.5m failure,” indicating that the company’s market claims are inaccurate; (ii) clinical studies on Taurolidine/Neutroline, the company’s sole product, indicate that the company made inaccurate statements about the product’s purported “40% benefit” over industry standards; and (iii) that the company now spends more on insider compensation than R&D. The article describes a years-long pattern of misrepresenting clinical trial progress and misleading investors, characterizing CorMedix as “one of the most brazen, worthless biotech shells of insider enrichment I have ever seen.” 

On this news, shares of CorMedix fell $0.76 per share, to $4.10, or more than 15.64%, in intraday trading on June 29, 2015.

123Employee Opens New Virtual Assistant Center

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / June 30, 2015 / 123Employee, a Las Vegas, NV business, is proud to announce the opening of a brand new center to house their virtual assistants. The business offers outsourcing services, such as virtual assistants, to a variety of enterprises and small businesses. Their goal is to take a stand against overworked employees, thereby increasing overall efficiency and productivity and, ultimately, profits. By opening the new center, 123Employee hopes to be able to service even more business around the world.

“We have recently opened a brand new center in which 320 of our virtual assistants will be housed”, says LJ Gacho from 123Employee. “We are currently going through around 30 applications each night, where we put potential assistants through written and oral tests. Only the best, less than 2%, end up getting a job with us.”

With the new center, 123Employee will hire nearly a thousand employees overall. The new employees will be working with split shifts, so that the virtual assistant service can be offered around the clock. This also means that businesses from all over the world can utilize the service, as it is able to span timezones. A particular benefit of this is that it means businesses can still communicate with others who are in different time zones. For instance, a company in New York can conduct business with a company in London with far greater ease.

“The opening of 123Employee is a dream come true for us, our clients and the local community”, says Daven Michaels, Founder and CEO of 123 Employee. “Our purpose is to empower lifestyle start entrepreneurs, make them more successful, help them to get their time back and their lives back.”

The company offers a service that improves their clients not just on a business level, but on a personal level as well. They do this by giving personal attention to each of their clients, which they achieve also by running each facility individually. Their unique service has received many positive reviews ever since the business first started.

123Employee first opened its doors in February 2003. At that time, they had just 10 employees. Over the past 12 years, they grew into a leading business that companies from all over the world come to in order to outsource some of their services. Their goal is to ensure small businesses and entrepreneurs can save time and money, ultimately increasing their bottom line. One of the things that really sets 123 Employee apart is the fact that they focus on their social responsibility, by working from the Philippines, giving impoverished people an opportunity to improve their lives as well. However, only very few are able to make the cut and become a 123Employee.

Blue Dolphin to Expand Nixon Facility

HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / June 30, 2015 / Blue Dolphin Energy Company (“Blue Dolphin”) (OTCQX: BDCO) today announced plans to expand the Nixon Facility, recently closing on $28 million of $35 million in approved funding.

On June 22, 2015, Lazarus Energy, LLC and Lazarus Refining & Marketing, LLC, wholly owned subsidiaries of Blue Dolphin, closed on a $25 million term loan (the “LE Term Loan”) and a $3 million bridge loan (the “LRM Bridge Loan”), respectively, with Sovereign Bank, a Texas state bank. The LE Term Loan is guaranteed under the Business & Industry Guaranteed Loan Program administered by the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development Program (the “USDA”). Proceeds from the LE Term Loan will be used to support the expansion of crude and product storage at the Nixon Facility and refinance approximately $8.5 million in debt owed to American First National Bank. Proceeds from the LRM Bridge Loan will be used to acquire idle refinery process equipment for the Nixon Facility.

The LE Term Loan has a fully amortizing maturity date of June 22, 2034. The total effective interest rate will be 8.0% per year (currently) variable to Wall Street Journal Prime Rate with a prepayment penalty of a flat 5% if repaid within 5 years. Additional details regarding the LE Term Loan and the LRM Bridge Loan, including borrowing terms, payments and interest rates, are included in a related Form 8-K that Blue Dolphin filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 26, 2015.

The Nixon Facility expansion plan has three phases:

– Phase 1: Construct more than 500,000 barrels of petroleum storage tanks (100,000 barrels of crude oil storage, 400,000 barrels of product storage, and 2,142 barrels of LPG / LSR storage) and associated ancillary equipment through the LE Term Loan. By refinancing approximately $8.5 million of existing debt, LE’s net debt increased by approximately $16.5 million. Total debt payments including principal and interest will be approximately $225,000 per month or approximately $150,000 per month more than the prior loan from American First National Bank. Leasing 20% to 30% of the newly constructed storage tanks would fully cover the incremental debt payments.

– Phase 2: Purchase idle refinery process equipment through the LRM Bridge Loan. The company believes it will reduce future capital costs by utilizing various process equipment, pumps and compressors that can be cost effectively rebuilt. The process equipment purchased is estimated to be about 2% of the installed replacement cost of comparable new equipment (see Table 1).

– Phase 3: Obtain and close a new $10 million USDA guaranteed loan to LRM with similar terms to those of the LE Term Loan. Sovereign Bank has approved the loan, subject to receiving a loan guarantee from the USDA. We are in the process of obtaining a guarantee commitment from the USDA. Proceeds from this loan, when funded, will be used to refinance the $3 million LRM Bridge Loan and to construct an additional 300,000 barrels of new crude oil storage tanks.

Potential benefits of the Nixon Facility expansion plan include:

– generation of additional revenue from leasing product and crude storage to third parties
– crude and product storage capable of supporting refinery throughput of up to 30,000 barrels per day
– production of a higher octane gasoline blendstock (reformate) by refurbishing and relocating the naphtha reformer
– production of ultra low sulfur diesel (“ULSD”) by refurbishing and relocating a light duty hydrotreater
– increasing the processing capacity and complexity by refurbishing and relocating additional purchased refinery equipment to the Nixon Facility, including a Merox unit, vacuum tower, prefrac tower unit, and LPG fractionator and other recently acquired equipment.

“We are able to lay the groundwork for additional new capital and organic growth through debottlenecking and capital improvements,” said Jonathan P. Carroll, Blue Dolphin’s Chief Executive Officer and President. “Simultaneous with the storage tank expansion project, we continue to identify and vet additional opportunities to increase throughput and diversification of products that will optimize profitability.”

“By securing low cost and long maturity loans, we will be able to finance construction of over 800,000 barrels of crude and product storage tanks at the Nixon Facility, purchase idle process equipment at a small fraction of the replacement cost, and fully fund the debt repayment cost through leases on a small portion of the newly constructed storage tanks,” continued Mr. Carroll.

SME Advisors LC, a Dallas-based Advisory firm, served as exclusive financial advisor to Blue Dolphin throughout the transactions.
