WESTON, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 04/09/08 -- Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: ALL Fuels & Energy Company (OTCBB: AFSE), Arch Coal, Inc. (NYSE: ACI), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Apache Corp. (NYSE: APA).
ALL Fuels & Energy Company (OTCBB: AFSE) continues to issue positive news, and the company should have investors monitoring the stock closely. Yesterday after the markets closed, the company, a development-stage ethanol company organized to operate as an ethanol producer, issued a press release announcing that the Super Enzyme could reduce ethanol production cost to less than $1 per gallon if proven successful in its upcoming trials.
Great news for the company! New plant construction cost could potentially be reduced by nearly 30% using the new Super Enzyme technology. According to the press release, this would apply to AFSE's current Iowa plant development, which would equate to approximately $60 million in savings out of the expected costs of $200 million to build. "This enzyme is exactly what President Bush has been calling for regarding America's Energy Policy. Know-how and ingenuity is what makes the United States the world leader. New energy alternatives are no different. This new cellulosic/corn enzyme is just what the energy world needs," said Dean Sukowatey, President/CEO of ALL Fuels & Energy Company.
The company reported last week that it has selected a specific "super" enzyme on which its has begun testing to determine its capacity for boosting production of corn and cellulosic ethanol. This selected super enzyme is the first in a suite of ten super enzymes identified for testing by AFSE Enzyme, LLC, a subsidiary of AFSE. It is expected that testing on this first super enzyme will last approximately thirty days.
"We are pleased with the rate at which our super enzyme project is progressing. As we continue to pursue acquisitions and vertical integration opportunities, we believe this super enzyme project greatly enhances our business model of risk management and low cost production," said Dean Sukowatey, ALL Fuels & Energy President.
Also last week, the company reported that Trinity Capital LLC ("Trinity"), a leading investment bank focused on the renewable fuels and clean technology industries, has been engaged to negotiate strategic acquisitions and facilitate the financing of those transactions.
This is also great news for the company, as Trinity will execute the acquisition of the production and integration opportunities AFSE management has identified and secured to date. Trinity Capital LLC is a boutique investment bank whose senior bankers have completed over $50 billion in M&A, private placement and restructuring transactions, including the recent funding of Green Earth Fuels LLC with the Carlyle Group, Riverstone Holdings and Goldman, Sachs & Co. Trinity brings worldwide project finance and M&A experience in renewable fuels and related industries and is comprised of senior level bankers from such bulge bracket firms as Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, JP Morgan and others.
Investors are urged to continue to monitor the progress of the company!
