As Seen on TV: (OTCBB: ASTV)

 

Cee Lo Green of the critically acclaimed duo Gnarls Barkley has agreed to endorse the personalized weight loss plan from As Seen on TV (OTCBB: ASTV). 

eDiets.com was selected as one of the best sites by Forbes magazine in the diet and nutrition category. There is a recent trend of Fortune 500 companies with extremely large health care costs to focus on prevention of health problems rather than paying large medical bills in the future. Building gyms at corporate headquarters, hiring personal trainers for some employees, banning Coca-Cola and Starbucks from their premises and other creative solutions like installing smoke detectors everywhere just to keep employees from smoking and hiring private security guards to stay in bathrooms all day long. (A popular destination for smokers)

As seen on TV (OTCBB: ASTV) saw this niche market, which has generated over $22 million in sales in 2011 and decided to buy the entire company for $15 million worth of Equity (shares) last November.  Both companies believe there are numerous synergies between the two that could provide significant growth potential for the combined entity.

Biometrics is however widely viewed as one of the fastest-growing segment within the information technology sector. Experts say the sector could more than quadruple its revenues to $2 billion globally by 2013, with biometric recognition expected to remain the dominant form of the technology.

Aware, Inc. (NASDAQ: AWRE)

Companies in industries from healthcare to point of sale have capitalized not only in the value of biometric technology but also on the benefits of the revolutionary biometric solution. One of such companies is Aware Inc. (NASDAQ: AWRE). Operating out of Bedford Massachusetts, it is considered a leading software and technology supplier for biometrics, telecommunications, and healthcare industries.

One unique thing about Aware Inc. occurred during its last quarterly report in 2012… The Board of Directors determined that the company’s current cash balance exceeded its capital requirements and therefore decided to return cash to shareholders through a special cash dividend of $1.80 per share, or approximately $400 million in total.

 

Like all companies, Aware has a number of competitors. Some of them are Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE: LMT), Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.(NYSE: AMD), Advanced Photonix, Inc. (NYSE: API), Advanced Semiconductor Engineering, Inc. (NYSE: ASX), and others. However, Aware is unique because its processing and analysis of digital data and image “signals” have applications in the telecommunications, biometrics, and medical imaging industries.
