Omagine Inc.(OTCMKTS:OMAG) is making higher highs and higher lows as the stock nears $3 per share. OMAG exploded off $1 earlier this year after the Company initially announced their Development agreement with the Government of the Sultanate of Oman.
Omagine, Inc. organized Omagine LLC under the laws of Oman to design, develop, own and operate a tourism and real-estate development project in Oman named the Omagine Project. The Omagine Project is estimated to cost approximately $2.5 billion to design, develop and construct.
Omagine Inc.(OTCMKTS:OMAG) has had this project in development now for close to 10 years even before the Company changed their name to Omagine, Inc. in June 2007. As early as 2006 when the Company was still Alfa International Corp. and then later Alfa International Holdings Corp. they were in Oman working on this.
Omagine, Inc. is a publicly traded company conducting real-estate development, tourism and entertainment business activities through either its 60% owned subsidiary Omagine LLC or its 100% owned subsidiary Journey of Light, Inc. The Company is focused on real-estate, entertainment and hospitality opportunities in the Middle East and North Africa (the “MENA Region”) which is one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in the world.
Governments in the MENA Region are seeking to diversify their economies and create employment for their citizens via the development of tourism destination projects. It is the Company’s opinion that this governmental strategic vision combined with the enormous financial resources in the MENA Region will continue to present superb development opportunities. The Company presently focuses the majority of its efforts on the business of Omagine LLC and specifically on the Omagine Project.
On October 2 OMAG announced the $2.5 billion Omagine Project a planned integration of cultural, entertainment and residential components, including: hotels, commercial buildings, retail establishments and more than two thousand residences to be developed for sale. It will be developed on one million square meters (245 acres) of beachfront land (the “Omagine Site”) facing the Gulf of Oman just west of the capital city of Muscat and approximately six miles from Muscat International Airport.

The Omagine Project will include cultural, heritage, educational, entertainment and residential components, including: a high culture theme park containing seven pearl shaped buildings, each approximately 60 feet in diameter, associated exhibition buildings, a boardwalk, an open air amphitheater and stage.

Conclusion: OMAG is an old shell that has been around for many years since the mid 90’s before it went bankrupt on a higher exchange. The Company has undergone a significant number of name changes and reverse stock splits over the years before changing their name to Omagine Inc. in 2007.
For the past 10 years the Company has been focused on bringing The Omagine Project to fruition and the recently announced Development Agreement (“DA”) brings much hope that this deal will now happen.
The Company has maintained a loyal shareholder base over the past 10 years primarily on agoracom.com where OMAG has been a crowd favorite since 2006. Since that time OMAG has been highly volatile swinging from $0.50 on the low side to runs as high as $14 per share.
Currently trading at a $50 million market valuation OMAG continues to trade strong. Some investors swear this one is going into the stratosphere others are saying the opposite, once thing is clear; OMAG time to shine is here and as it comes into the spotlight in the coming days and the Omagine Project is traded on things are going to get incredibly exciting around here.
