Back in October 2018, HCMC announced the granting of three US patents related to its Q-Cup™ technology. This Q-Cup™ technology provides significantly more efficiency and an “on the go” solution for consumers who prefer to vape concentrates either medicinally or recreationally. In addition, the Company has a suite of patent applications pending in the United States including for a biometric fingerprint lock sensor that can be used in vaporizers. The biometric fingerprint lock sensor allows the owner of the vaporizer to keep the device locked and turned off unless the authorized user unlocks the device via fingerprint scan, protecting the device from use by another individual. This technology may be used to protect against minors being able to turn on the device and will also deem the devices unusable in the event the device is lost or stolen. There is no assurance that we will be awarded a patent for this technology. 

HCMC owns a valuable intellectual property portfolio related to both vape technology and also manufacturing processes and procedures for an imitation nicotine product. HCMC’s patented Q-Cup™ technology is based on a small, quartz cup called the Q-Cup™, which a customer can purchase already filled by a third party in some regions, or can partially fill themselves with either cannabis or CBD concentrate (approximately 50mg), also purchased from a third party.  The Q-Cup™ can then be inserted into the patented Q-Unit™, which heats the cup from the outside without coming in direct contact with the solid concentrate.  This Q-Cup™ and Q-Unit™ technology provides significantly more efficiency and an “on the go” solution for consumers who prefer to vape concentrates either medicinally or recreationally.  The Q-Cup™ can also be used in other devices as a convenient micro-dosing system. 

Recently the Company formed a new wholly owned subsidiary to hold, market and expand on its intellectual property assets.  This subsidiary, HCMC Intellectual Property Holdings, LLC, will own all of the patents, trademarks and other intellectual property of HCMC. The Company’s focus with this new subsidiary is to invest in innovation and encourage further development of core intellectual property.

HCMC

The big story on HCMC is its patent infringement lawsuit against Philip Morris USA, Inc. and Philip Morris Products S.A. in connection with their product known and marketed as “IQOS®.” The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. The international law firm Cozen O’Connor has been engaged to represent HCMC in this matter. Philip Morris trades on the NYSE at $84 and did $80 billion in sales last year. 

The Company’s lawsuit which was filed in November includes claims that Phillip Morris is infringing HCMC’s patent rights in connection with IQOS®, an alternative tobacco product marketed and sold by Phillip Morris. Philip Morris claims that it is currently approaching 14 million users of its IQOS® product and has reportedly invested over $3 billion in their smokeless tobacco products. Philip Morris has been very open about their ongoing transition from traditional fully combustible cigarettes to their modified risk tobacco products, including IQOS®. The Philip Morris IQOS® product is currently the subject of two other patent infringement proceedings filed by RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company. One proceeding is before the International Trade Commission and seeks to stop the importation of the IQOS® product into the United States; the other is a patent infringement action currently pending in the Eastern District of Virginia. RJ Reynolds’ patents are unrelated and not affiliated with the patents asserted in the HCMC case. 

The current run up in price is made possible by the smart forward thinking of HCMC management team who successfully eliminated 90% of the convertible debt on the books some time ago. CEO Jeff Holman said at the time: “We believe that this trade, which has saved HCMC and its shareholders approximately $29M of potential dilution, will lead to the re-creation of shareholder value.”  

The caliber of HCMC management team should be noted; John Ollet serves as the Company’s CFO; he previously served as Executive Vice President-Finance for Systemax, Inc. (NYSE:SYX) North America Technology Division for 10 years. SYX currently trades at $43 per share on the NYSE and the Company does over a billion dollars in annual revenues. Prior to that Mr. Ollet served as Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Arrow Cargo Holdings, Inc., an airline logistics company, and VP Finance/CFO – The Americas – Cargo Division, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. Currently HCMC OS is 194,780,848,017.

HCMC made a powerful move towards a penny after the Company reported an equity capital raise through the sale in a private placement of $5,000,000 of its Series D preferred stock to certain institutional investors. The Series D preferred stock is convertible into HCMC common stock at an initial conversion price of $0.0024, a 150% premium to its last market closing price on Friday, February 5, 2021, of $0.0016. The conversion price is subject to certain downward adjustments, including when the conversion shares are registered for resale or may be sold pursuant to Rule 144, as further described in the Company’s Form 8-K filed as of the date hereof. 

HCMC CEO Jeff Holman stated: “Led by our largest single long-term investor, HCMC has received an equity investment from a group of institutional investors, with the convertible preferred stock being issued with an initial conversion price of $0.0024, a 150% premium to our last market close. This show of confidence in the company’s fundamentals, IP assets and prospects moving forward is inspiring. We remain committed to enforcing our intellectual property rights in the form of our patents against all infringers. This again applies to the tobacco industry, as well as the cannabis industry.”
