Completed First Trials Successfully
Solaris has successfully completed its first trials of its newly designed Solaris Agriculture Grow Cell, a self-contained off grid agriculture LED grow light solution. The sun recharges the Solaris Power Cells which powers the Red Blue spectrum LED array that enables the crop growth under a controlled lighting condition even after the sun has gone down for the day. As an added safety feature, the Solaris Power Cells are solid state that does not depend on Toxic Lead Acid Batteries.
What makes this move a win is that Solaris Agriculture Grow Cell technologies complement Greengro's lines of complete grow systems including its modular designs and complete greenhouse solutions.
“This alliance is in line with our desire to provide a complete systems and service offering and provides an economical alternative to traditional power sources for our large-scale commercial grow projects,” states CEO Haas.
BP Gardens CEO and Director of Sustainability Projects, Rafael O. Quezada, has appointed Nancy Caruso to be on-site marine biologist and recirculating water farmer with Josh Graybiel providing design of the aquaponics and greenhouse systems.
Greengro says that Ms. Caruso brings a wealth of experience with stints at Aquarium of the Pacific, the California CoastKeepers, Disney and others, in addition to multiple, ongoing educational aquaponics programs initiated in schools throughout Orange County.

Introducing New Financing Plan for Medical Marijuana Dispensaries
Meanwhile, MediSwipe Inc. (OTCQB: MWIP) stock volume soared Mar. 11, with 3,301,872 shares changing hands, nearly double its three-month average volume of 1,825,001 shares.
This uptick in volume comes on the heels of news that Detroit-based company that provides payment solutions to licensed medical marijuana dispensaries is offering new financing for its customers.
MediSwipe’s program offers the initiation of up to a $500,000 credit facility to fund a broad range of cost-effective and flexible equipment leasing, real estate lease purchase agreements and financing programs for licensed retail, recreational and grow operations within the state of Colorado.
The innovative financing concept will quickly allow qualified licensed individuals and existing operations to participate in a revolving credit line to purchase heavy agricultural equipment including lighting, CO2 and hydrocarbon extractors, real estate property and acreage zoned for the regulated cannabis industry. The flexible and easy access business loans will eliminate much of the red tape of traditional bank financing. The Company is presently in negotiation with its' first two properties within the state of Colorado.
“We intend to streamline the lending process and have committed up to $500,000 for this program to provide easy access to capital for canna-businesses with minimal down payments and terms amortized up to sixty (60) months to fund hydroponic, agricultural and extraction equipment,” stated B. Michael Friedman, chief executive of MediSwipe.
This latest market move by the company comes about a month after MediSwipe launched its Mont Blunt® vaporizers and tobacco alternative product lines.
This is true vertical diversification and its one of the moves serious players in a burgeoning market always make.
Brings Strong e-Cig to Market
The Feb. 12 rollout was launched on the MediSwipe’s new e-commerce website at www.Montblunt.com. According to the release, MediSwipe’s Mont Blunt® product line offers a clean, affordable alternative to smokers. The company contends its cigarette’s unique design will be embraced by its target market.
Mont Blunt Vaporizers are battery powered devices that allow cigarette smokers to receive a vaporized liquid solution, while simply exhaling water vapor. The vapor is both harmless and odorless, yet it provides users with a physical sensation very similar to that of tobacco smoke, without the hassle and hazard of traditional cigarettes. The stainless steel, short but streamlined thin tube allows the user to hold the product much like they would while smoking, mimicking the physical sensation smokers often require.
The Mont Blunt device is also simple to use and effortlessly transportable. The subscription cartridges, which hold the nicotine and alternative flavors, are also small and easily replaceable, allowing the Mont Blunt user to enjoy this convenient technology wherever they choose, according the release.
On Mar.11, MWIP share price closed at 48 cents, up 8 cents from the previous day’s share price of 40 cents.
SMTP Stock Value Climbs amid Very Little News
In the Internet Service Provider sector, SMTP Inc. (NASDAQ:SMTP), a global provider of email delivery services, share price closed at $6.13 cents, up 5 cents from the previous day’s share price of $6.08.
The company hasn’t issued any press releases nor has it been in the news since Feb 13 when it reported that its Board of Directors had declared a quarterly dividend of 12 cents per common share to shareholders of record at the close of business on Feb. 24, 2014. The dividend was paid on Mar. 3, 2014. The 12 cents per share dividend reflects the 1-for-5 reverse split that became effective on Dec. 26, 2013.
When initiating its dividend program in 2012, the company indicated its intent to return approximately 80%-90% of quarterly earnings to investors in the form of dividends. The company has applied that dividend policy throughout 2012 and 2013.
SMTP closed on a $10M public offering of 1.6 million new shares of common stock on Feb. 6, 2014, and closed on the $1.5-million over-allotment option granted to the underwriters for an additional 240,000 shares on Feb. 18, 2014. These transactions have increased the number of shares of company common stock outstanding by over 50%, which creates a situation where the dividend paid will exceed quarterly cash flow from operations. While this dividend declaration does not adhere to the company's previously published dividend policy, the company's Board of Directors considers it to be in the best interest of its shareholders to maintain a $0.12 per share dividend on the company's common stock for the foreseeable future.
