    This my fav pick for a possible multibagger in 2022. I believe 2022 has a high chance of being the breakthrough year for Pond Technologies.

    PNDHF: Thesis On-Track with Healthy Pipeline of Opportunities & Liquidity with Recent Private Placement

    Some excerpts:

    "Cow feed would be a breakthrough win and has been on our wish list since November. We would like to see Pond Technologies achieve a maiden win of a cattle feed contract in the United States or Canada. That would then become a springboard for a series of wins after the first customer is successful with it and methane reduction. A very important catalyst, in our view."

    "We believe that Pond Technologies is becoming well-positioned for winning additional contracts and can execute well on its Livalta (AB Agri) relationship. Animal feed and methane reduction remain are favorite growth catalysts for new contracts and project wins."

    "We reduce our price target valuation to $0.80 CAD & $0.65 USD because of the stock market correction over the past two months causing the relative peer group to trade at lower valuation multiples."

    Pond Provides Update to Shareholders on AB Agri/Livalta Project Progress and Milestone Payments Received of $1.5 Million to Date
    May 6, 2022
    https://www.pondtech.com/media-rele...one-payments-received-of-1-5-million-to-date/
    Pond Technologies Holdings Inc. (“Pond”) (TSXV: POND)(OTCQB: PNDHF)(FSE:4O0), an ESG company addressing global sustainability challenges of wellness and climate change, is providing an update on its agreement with Livalta, an AB Agri company, a subsidiary of Associated British Foods (LSE:ABF) for the joint commercialization of algae-based animal feed ingredients. This global partnership between responsible protein specialists Livalta and Pond will produce commercial algae-based animal feed ingredients from CO2 emissions. Effectively, the technology is designed to take CO2 emissions out of the air to produce high value protein.

    Details:
    • In an agreement dated September 7, 2021, Livalta and Pond entered into an exclusive global partnership to grow algae-based animal feed from CO2 emissions
    • The engagement consists of two parts: a supply agreement, where AB Agri will purchase an algae demonstration system from Pond to be installed in the UK for the sum of approximately CAD$2.9 million and a license agreement, where Pond will receive up to CAD$2.6 million in technology access fees and an ongoing royalty based on the production from commercial algae plants deployed in the future
    • The demonstration system will be used to grow algae strains for animal feed trials and the development of commercial animal feeds which will be sold by AB Agri.
    • The first product will be spirulina, combining 60% protein with essential vitamins and minerals. Spirulina is known for its nutritional and functional value both in food and animal feed.
    • Livalta’s pilot plant is currently anticipated to begin operating at British Sugar’s Wissington site in Norfolk in Q4 2022
    Managing Director of Livalta, Valerie Schuster, said:“We are very happy that together with our partner Pond and our sister company British Sugar we have completed the initial engineering work for our algae pilot plant. Despite global supply chain challenges and having to work mostly remotely across continents and time zones we now have achieved a key milestone towards starting operations of our algae pilot plant towards the end of this year.”

    May 10, 2022
    https://www.pondtech.com/media-rele...ults-and-provides-update-on-biotech-division/

    MARKHAM, ON / ACCESSWIRE / May 10, 2022 /Pond Technologies Holdings Inc. (“Pond”) (TSXV: POND); (OTCQB: PNDHF); (FSE:400), an ESG company addressing global sustainability challenges of wellness and climate change, is pleased share successful results related to the production of recombinant proteins published in the scientific journalNature Scientific Reportsand is providing an update on the Pond Biotech project announced in the fall of 2021 with a major Fortune 500 oil and gas company. As part of the project, Pond has been scaling up the production of recombinant proteins. Pond has received approximately $230,000 in payments to date for milestones achieved and the initial research agreement. Pond has now completed the initial scale-up, including bioreactor designs and growth protocols.

    Since the beginning of 2022, Pond has been making weekly deliveries of recombinant proteins to the project consortium for testing. This material has been able to prove that algae-grown recombinant proteins perform as well as conventionally produced proteins in diagnostic tests. Results of these trials were recently published in the scientific journalNature Scientific Reports and is available here:https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-022-11053-7.Nature Scientific Reportsis the 6th most-cited journal in the world, with more than 540,000 citations in 2020, and receives widespread attention in policy documents and the media1.

    Under the current license agreement with the Fortune 500 oil and gas company, Pond expects to receive a further $850,000 in milestone payments in 2022 and is now positioned to enter a commercial supply contract by the end of this year.

    Grant Smith, President & CEO at Pond said:“This peer reviewed journal article supports our view that algae can be a low-cost micro-factory for the production of recombinant proteins, with applications in medical diagnostics, antibody therapeutics, and vaccine manufacture. We expect to complete this project and continue to grow revenues from our biotech division in 2023.”

    Pond Technologies Holdings Inc. Announces Filing of 2022 First Quarter Unaudited Interim Condensed Financial Statements, MD&A and Provides Business Update
    May 26, 2022, 16:30 ET
    https://www.newswire.ca/news-releas...a-and-provides-business-update-830805712.html

    Management Commentary
    Grant Smith President & CEO Pond commented: "We are diligently working to further commercialize our technology in 2022, with our current and future clients, as well as partners globally. We have a network of major companies working with us across multiple sectors including energy, renewables, animal feed, human feed, and biotech, as we move towards sustained commercialization of our technology with a focus on consistent revenue generation. Early commercialization creates lumpiness in revenue, with a high dependence on the timing of signed contracts, but as we further build our scale this is expected to become much more stable over time, and this is the key focus of our management team. It is also worth noting we have seen supply chain disruptions as it relates to Pond Naturals which has impacted the timing of ingredient sales; however, we have seen improvements through the second quarter and look forward to returning to revenue growth in this business segment. We remain extremely excited with our current prospects as we execute on our strategic vision and anticipate updates in the near term."

    According to the linkedin post of AB Agri, a subsidary of the 10 Billion market cap company Associated British Foods, seems to be convinced of the technology from Pond. "More to come soon"...

    Beyond providing excellent #nutrition & functional benefits for animals, could #microalgae also reduce #methaneemissions in cattle? This is what we seek to find out together with Pond Technologies Inc., AB Agri and other partners. More to come soon. Thank you FeedNavigator for featuring our teaser. https://lnkd.in/exV89nDs

    This company seems dirt cheap at the moment considering their business relations with two multi-billion $ companies. Hopefully they will anounce some promising news soon regarding the methane reducing algae feed solutions in cattle.

    PNDHF: Pipeline Expanding; Positive Implications for Technology Applications & Growth
    by Zacks Small Cap Research
    July 31, 2022
    https://www.benzinga.com/markets/pe...plications-for-technology-applications-growth

    By M. Marin
    OTCQB: PNDHF | TSX.V: POND

    Pond Technologies
    (TSX.V: POND) is a carbon conversion technology company that uses its proprietary platform to grow microalgae in a rapid and cost-effective manner that does not require arable land. We expect Pond to benefit from growing awareness of its technology as concerns about environmental and ESG (Environmental, social, and corporate governance) issues increase.

    Project with global player offers proof of concept…
    The company has formed agreements that offer proof of concept and revenue opportunities, including with Livalta (AB Agri, part of Associated British Foods). Pond's Livalta (AB Agri) project is progressing. The company has completed the initial engineering work on the project and has recently received milestone payments. The pilot Livalta (AB Agri) plant is expected to begin operating in 4Q22. Pond and Livalta formed a license agreement for Pond to earn technology access fees and an ongoing royalty based on the production from commercial algae plants deployed going forward. As work progresses, the company expects further payments.

    … as new opportunities come on stream

    At the same time, Pond continues to form new agreements to further validate and commercialize its technology. Last month, Pond formed a memorandum of understanding with SEM Energy Ltd., a sustainable technology solutions company that implements customized solutions for the treatment of waste products and wastewater, recovery of nutrients and to generate value-added by-products. Pond expects SEM to utilize Pond technology as a bolt-on solution in certain of its projects.

    The two companies will collaborate on a non-exclusive basis to pursue projects internationally, beginning with an initial focus on projects based in Scotland. Their goal is to abate 10,000 tonnes of CO2 from an identified waste to energy plant using stack gas. The project is expected to launch in 4Q22. SEM intends to promote and recommend Pond to its existing ESG clients on a non-exclusive basis via a carbon capture campaign.

    The company expects that leveraging SEM's current global project pipeline can help Pond commercialize its carbon reducing algae-based platform across multiple sectors. The global collaboration is also expected to provide Pond the added infrastructure to support the scaling up process through its ongoing commercialization efforts. The company believes this agreement can accelerate its commercialization efforts.

    Separately, the company also recently engaged Clean Conduit, a clean technology management consulting firm that has more than 15 years of experience in domestic and international cleantech consulting. Clean Conduit will market Pond's technology solutions to prospective clients. The company expects the Clean Conduit relationship will be largely subsidized through GreenCentre Canada.
