Weekly Update: December 20, 2021
All the best of the Holiday Season and may the blessings of a prosperous New Year be yours.
Not much Christmas cheer in the markets however.
It’s clear now that Covid is here to stay for the foreseeable future and although it is impossible to judge what effects this will have short and long term, the chaos and uncertainty are not good things for the stock market. Layer on the discord in Washington that is so polarized it has basically crippled government.
Build back better with what money ???? I guess is the biggest thing and how many billion dollar political bridges to nowhere does it take to get anything done.

Stock market news live updates: Stocks sink amid virus concerns, Manchin’s blow to Build Back Better
Stocks fell on Monday at the start of a holiday-shortened week of trading, with investors considering renewed virus-related restrictions overseas and prospects that a significant social policy bill may be scuttled.
The S&P 500, Dow Nasdaq each dropped more than 1%. Treasury yields fell as investors piled into safe haven assets, and the benchmark 10-year yield held below 1.4%. The CBOE Volatility Index, or VIX, spiked more than 20% to hover above 25.
U.S. crude oil prices sank 3% to trade below $69 per barrel as restrictions mounted in Europe, stoking jitters around energy demand. Countries from Germany to Ireland imposed curfews or travel restrictions in recent days given the rapidly spreading new variant. And the Netherlands over the weekend announced a nationwide lockdown of non-essential stores, bars and restaurants until Jan. 14. As of this weekend, the Omicron variant had been reported in about 89 countries, with cases doubling every 1.5 to 3 days.

12-5-2021Apollo Future Mobility Group (HKSE 860)
Greenridge Global Research Issues Update
WM Motors Becomes Largest Shareholder
WM Motors Becomes Largest Shareholder. Last week there were a number of transactions with AFMG’s shareholders and WM Motors, which resulted in WM Motors becoming the largest shareholder of 860, now holding 28.5% of the issued shares. The Ho family, which had been the largest shareholder, exchanged 815,000,000 shares and Agile Property [HK: 3383] exchanged its 794,386,000 shares at HK$0.68 per share for WM shares; Agile also led the recent Series D2 round of WM Motors. Li Ka Shing and Solina Chau exchanged the remainder for WM shares, however the decrease in their shareholding of 860 was less magnified as they participated in the convertible debt deal prior to the exchange, as detailed below. While no formal statements have been made about the change in largest shareholder, we view these transactions as a net positive for AFMG. It ties the Company to an established auto manufacturer with a great deal of excess production capacity, which Apollo could potentially use for its Apollo branded EVs in China, provides the potential for better pricing on components, and could result in WM working with AAT for ESO projects.
HK$163.8 Million Raised From Convertible Debt. In September, AFMG raised a total of HK$163.8 million from the issuance of three-year 9% notes convertible at HK$0.55 per share. Roughly half of the notes were purchased by Li Ka Shing, Solina Chau and Tony Ho. The proceeds will be used for continued investments in its operations, namely new vehicle development and expansion of the ESO business.
Series Of Product Showcases. AFMG had another successful showing at CIIE last month, followed up by a showcase at the Macau Grand Prix, with an invitation-only event in Hong Kong on December 9.
Operations & Model Update. We made a number of changes to the model, primarily related to the timeline for vehicle deliveries, the biggest of which was pushing out Project EVO and its large Revenue contribution to 2024. The Company appears to have settled into a defined vehicle release schedule, with the IE Roadster and EVO Track models to be released prior to the EVO. We note our estimates contain no Revenue from the EVision S, which could completely change the model with thousands of vehicles delivered annually, starting in 2024. We also note that 38.76 million options have expired since the end of the fiscal year.
Maintaining Rating & Target. We view the share exchanges with WM Motors to be a net positive as it could speed the time to market and reduce the cost to bring the Apollo EVision S to mass production. We continue to believe the Company is being substantially undervalued by the market, given the valuations standalone EV companies receive, which is just one part of AFMG. Given its broad product and service portfolio, which should turn profitable in 2022, we are reiterating our Buy rating and HK$1.50 target price on Apollo Future Mobility Group. Our target price is based on a P/E multiple of 25 times our fiscal 2023 Diluted EPS estimate of HK$5.79 cents, which falls just before the launch of the Apollo EVision S.

Greenridge Global Research Issues Update
Revenue Surges In Q3, Reverse Split Approved
Revenue Surges In Q3. Can B reported third quarter Revenue of $1.91 million, which surpassed the Company’s Revenue for all of 2020. The surge was related to the acquisitions of TWS and MCB, which added significant processing capacity, as noted in our initiation report. Gross Margins were strong at 71.7%. Operating expenses of $3.89 million were higher than expected related to acquisition and Reg A offering costs. Net Loss for the quarter was $3.23 million, or $0.11 per share.
Reverse Split Approved. Yesterday, the Company filed a Proxy notifying shareholders that the Board approved a reverse stock split, which could range between 1:2 and 1:15. A full shareholder vote was not required due to the voting rights on the Series A and Series D Preferred Shares. We expect this move was done in anticipation of an uplisting.
Model Update. Despite beating on the topline in Q3, we are leaving the remainder of our estimates in place and will wait to make adjustments based on Q4, which will be the first full quarter with all of the processing equipment owned and operated.
Maintaining Rating & Target. With no material changes to our model, third quarter results that beat our estimate, and a potential uplisting on the horizon, we are reiterating our Buy rating and $1.20 target price on Can B Corp. We expect that a full quarter of operating results in the fourth quarter will be significant in showing the Revenue and Earnings potential of the re-made Can B. Our target price is based on a P/E multiple of 20 times our fiscal 2023 Diluted EPS estimate of $0.06, discounted one year at 10%.

11-01- 2021 Antibe Therapeutics Inc. OTC ATBF (TSXV:ATE)
Antibe Therapeutics Outlines Plan for Otenaproxesul’s Acute Pain Program
TORONTO, November 01, 2021–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Antibe Therapeutics Inc. (TSX: ATE, OTCQX: ATBPF), a clinical stage company leveraging its hydrogen sulfide platform to develop next-generation safer therapies for a wide range of inflammatory conditions, is pleased to provide further detail on otenaproxesul’s development plan for acute pain indications. Further to its October 14th press release, Antibe has now identified timing for the program’s key regulatory and development milestones for post-operative pain, the Company’s initial acute indication for otenaproxesul.
“With otenaproxesul’s impressive 14-day efficacy and GI safety profile, which is ideally suited for acute pain, we are well-positioned to rapidly bring to market a novel and safe non-opioid analgesic,” commented Dan Legault, Antibe’s CEO. “From a commercial standpoint, we see the $13 billion post-operative pain segment as an ideal springboard to the much broader acute pain market. Combined with the lack of innovation in oral analgesics and the urgent global need for non-addictive alternatives, we expect otenaproxesul to be especially attractive to potential partners. And with the option of funding the entire Phase III program with our current cash position, Antibe has a unique opportunity to shift the treatment paradigm of acute pain.”
