HONG KONG, Sep 20, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – A Mitsubishi Chemical (MTLHY) technical expert revealed that the important innovations of Tesla's new battery are the positive and negative electrodes and the new electrolyte. Mitsubishi Chemical has perfectly matched the electrolyte technology for the new battery. This electrolyte mainly uses new solutes and functional additives, which can greatly improve battery performance. The technical expert said that the solvent in the new electrolyte is still supplied by the Chinese company Shida Shenghua, and the amount of DMC in the solvent will be greatly increased. Beginning in 2017, Mitsubishi and Shida Shenghua have jointly developed a new type of solute. This product will soon be mass-produced, which can effectively increase battery cycle times and energy density.

Impact BioMedical Demonstrates 10-Fold Reduction in Viral Population of COVID-19 in Surface Disinfectant Efficacy Testing of its 3F Antiviral Biofragrance

Rochester, N.Y., Sep 18, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – Document Security Systems, Inc. ("DSS" or the "Company") (NYSE American: DSS), a multinational company operating businesses focusing on brand protection technology, blockchain security, direct marketing, healthcare, real estate, and securitized digital assets, today announced its wholly owned subsidiary Impact BioMedical, Inc. ("Impact BioMedical"), through its subsidiary Global BioLife, Inc. ("Global BioLife"), completed efficacy testing of its proprietary 3F Antiviral Biofragrance ("3F Biofragrance) at a biosafety level 3 containment facility at an independent university. The study demonstrated a 10-fold reduction in COVID-19 viral population on surfaces using 3F Biofragrance.

"We're extremely excited with the results of the study, which was based on a quantifiable, robust model and designed to treat high levels of the COVID-19 virus," stated Daryl Thompson, Global BioLife's Director of Scientific Initiatives and founder of advanced research company GRDG Sciences, LLC ("GRDG"). "As the world continues to battle COVID-19, common antimicrobial compounds have the potential to be overused, leading to new health concerns. We designed 3F Biofragrance to solve this issue through a multi-focal approach to inhibiting viruses that reduces the chances of developing resistance as seen with other antimicrobials."

3F Biofragrance was designed for the Open Air Defense Initiative, a strategy to protect locations where large numbers of people gather or transit such as airports, containment areas, train stations, convention centers, hospitals, and ports of entry. The Open Air Defense Initiative was created as a solution for Event 201, a pandemic exercise conducted in 2019 by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Event 201 highlighted areas where public/private partnerships are vital to respond to a severe pandemic. In addition to COVID-19, 3F Biofragrance is effective against E. coli, MRSA, Influenza, Rhinovirus, and Tuberculosis.

In the latest study, 3F Biofragrance demonstrated success as a surface disinfectant, killing the COVID-19 virus in concentrations as low as 1/5000 or 0.02%. In comparison, typical antimicrobial surface disinfectants have concentrations of 0.1% to 1.8%.

Impact BioLife is currently in joint development with multiple global cosmetics and consumer products companies for the commercialization of the 3F Biofragrance technology.

"3F Biofragrance has the potential to transform typical consumer products into weapons against the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses, and we look forward to providing updates on ongoing negotiations for global licensing and royalty agreements of this innovative technology," continued Thompson.

The global market for antimicrobial additives, estimated at $2.2 billion in 2020 and growing at a CAGR of 8.4%, is expected to reach $4.3 billion in 2027, according to Grandview Research, and the global fragrance ingredients market is expected to reach $16.1 billion by 2027, up from $13.6 billion in 2019, according to data from Allied Market Research.

GRDG's Chief Scientific Advisor Dr. Roscoe M. Moore, Jr., the former United States Assistant Surgeon General and former Epidemic Intelligence Service Officer at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or CDC commented, "This latest study affirms our belief that our 3F Biofragrance technology can play an important role in the battle against COVID-19 through a wide variety of consumer applications."

"As a result of the profound and unprecedented global experiences surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, consumers around the world now have a newly heightened awareness of the importance of microbial-resistant products and surfaces, and 3F Biofragrance could provide an extremely effective and safe alternative to meet this growing demand," added GRDG's Chief Strategy Advisor, Lieutenant Colonel William H. Lyerly Jr., retired U.S. Army Medical Service Corps Officer who also served as a senior official in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the U.S. Executive Office of the President (White House).

GRDG is a specialized research team that focuses on developing solutions for biodefense under the guidelines of the Project BioShield Act, Event 201, and Potomac Institute for Policy Studies.

GRDG performs rapid analysis and research by using advanced algorithms and the most complete databases in the world. The team operates in a lean and efficient manner and when necessary utilizes the top contract research organizations to deliver solid results that are robust and accurate.

Tiger Brokers adds ASX to its Online Trading & Mobile App

SINGAPORE, Sep 18, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – Tiger Brokers, the NASDAQ-listed, Xiaomi-backed online brokerage focused on global trading across the world's top markets, announced the addition of the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) to its mobile and online trading application, Tiger Trade. This brings the current number of exchanges available to regional investors to 6; the US, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, and Australia: the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), NASDAQ, Shanghai/Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect, Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX), Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX), and since Monday, the ASX.





The addition of ASX to Tiger Trade's offering addresses regional investors' increasing appetite for equities, even during the current COVID-19 pandemic: Tiger Brokers witnessed a surge in account openings especially during June to August, with an increase of 43% y-o-y following the addition of SGX to the platform on June 8. With the ASX seeing an average daily on-market trading volume of AU$5.4 billion (S$5.36 billion) in July, up 21% y-o-y, it was natural that Tiger Brokers would want to provide access to ASX trading on its platform and to expand its offerings to potential ASX investors.

Mr Eng Thiam Choon, CEO of Tiger Brokers Singapore, said, "Tiger Brokers believes that technology is a strong enabler to providing convenient access for retail investors to meet their investing needs. The access to another popular stock exchange like the Australian Securities Exchange will allow investors to further diversify their investment portfolio."

Demand for Overseas Exchanges

The top 10 stocks traded on the Tiger Trade platform included Tesla, Alibaba, Apple and Netflix from US exchanges, Tencent and Alibaba from Hong Kong, rounded out by banking stocks, glove makers and Singapore Airlines (SIA) in Singapore. Across exchanges, the sectors most traded were ihealthcare, followed by the technology sector.

"Industries like healthcare and technology have seen tremendous interest from retail investors, and surging stock prices. Tiger Trade has also seen an increased number of transactions in these stocks. We are also seeing retail investors more comfortable using online trading platforms such as ours, similar to the financial industry as a whole, which is rapidly digitizing. With more people at home, the consumption of technology has risen, and Tiger Brokers is well placed to meet that rising trend," said Mr Eng.

Mr Wu Tianhua, CEO of Tiger Brokers, commented, "A major increase in new customers in Q2 2020 as well as a strong growth momentum in total client assets is indicative of the appeal of our service offerings to both retail and institutional clients. The improvement of these key business metrics showed strength in the business amidst the COVID-19 induced market volatility."

Tiger Brokers Singapore is able to tap the expertise and insight of its parent UPFintech Holdings (NASDAQ: TIGR) in helping drive fintech innovation in Singapore and Southeast Asia. UPFintech Holdings focus is on global Chinese investors. UPFintech's Q2 earnings shared positive momentum with revenue growth of 121.8% y-o-y to US$30.1 million, on trading volume of US$46.8 billion. Client assets hit a high of US$8.3 billion as of June 30, an increase of 132.9% from a year earlier. UPFintech led the rankings of underwriters among brokerages for US IPOs during H1 2020. Despite COVID-19, UPFintech assisted many firms in settling sizable orders, showing the group's capability to serve its 500+ institutional and corporate clients. Earlier this month, it received approval for five new Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. ("FINRA") licences in the United States.

Huge Decrease in Levels of Streaming Piracy Seen in Malaysia Over the Last 12 Months

KUALA LUMPUR, Sep 17, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – A new study of the online content viewing behaviour of Malaysian consumers has found a massive 64% decrease in consumers accessing piracy websites over the past 12 months. The survey, commissioned by AVIA's Coalition Against Piracy (CAP) and conducted by YouGov, found that 22% of online consumers currently use piracy streaming websites or torrent sites to view pirated content, substantially less than the 61% from a similar survey conducted in August 2019. The YouGov survey also found a 61% reduction in the number of consumers who use an illicit streaming device (ISD) when compared to the August 2019 survey.

More than half (55%) of online consumers had noticed that a piracy service had been blocked by the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (MDTCA). This would appear to have had an impact on consumer attitudes towards piracy, with 49% stating that they no longer accessed piracy services and 40% stating that they now rarely accessed piracy services as a result of not being able to access blocked piracy sites. 11% of consumers said it made no difference to their viewing habits.

Desmond Chan, General Manager of TVB International commented: "We are encouraged by the efforts of MDTCA in fighting online piracy with their site blocking campaign. Malaysia is an important market to our content distribution business. TVB's programmes are popular in Malaysia and have always been the targets for piracy. The swift anti-piracy measures provided by MDTCA will foster a business environment in which we will continue investing."

Melcior Soler, Global Audiovisual Director at LaLiga commented: "This substantial reduction in online piracy in Malaysia is a sign of the success of the actions undertaken by the MDTCA. Piracy only benefits the criminal organisations who operate the websites and illicit applications and harms society as a whole, especially those who work every day to generate content and entertainment for everyone. LaLiga will continue to fight against the problem of online piracy."

The continual site blocking has had an impact on consumers viewing habits who are now more likely to access legal content services. 20% of consumers who said they were aware of the government blocking piracy websites and illicit application domains, have since subscribed to a paid streaming service; 15% said they now spend more time viewing free (AVOD) local streaming services; and 65% now predominantly watch free (AVOD) international streaming services.

Neil Gane, General Manager of AVIA's Coalition Against Piracy (CAP) said: "We applaud the MDTCA for disrupting piracy website networks which are being monetised by crime syndicates. Consumers who subscribe to illicit IPTV services or access piracy streaming sites are wasting their time and money when the channels and websites stop working. Piracy services do not come with a 'service guarantee', no matter what their 'sales pitch' may claim."

When asked about the negative consequences of online piracy, consumers placed funding crime groups (57%), loss of jobs in the creative industry (52%) and malware risks (42%) as their top three concerns.

"Given the COVID-19 phenomena, industries like healthcare and technology have seen strong interest from investors, and surging stock prices. As such, Tiger Trade has also seen an increased number of account openings, and transactions in these stocks as well. Also, we are seeing that retail investors are more comfortable using online trading platforms such as ours, similar to how the financial industry as a whole is digitizing.

We are seeing more users open to using technology to meet their investment needs, and at Tiger Brokers, we are well placed to meet that rising need," Mr Eng shared further.

The increase in online brokerage preference also aligns with Accenture's data-driven analysis of COVID-19's impact on the digital behaviour of Singapore consumers. The report showed that the opportunity in Singapore's digital economy is worth at least half a billion US dollars per annum.

Tiger Brokers Singapore was able to tap the expertise and insight of parent UPFintech Holdings to help drive fintech innovation in Singapore and Southeast Asia.

Dyadic Announces Collaboration with Jiangsu Hengrui Medicine for Biologic Drug Development

LIANYUNGANG, CHINA and JUPITER, FL / ACCESSWIRE, Sep 17, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – Dyadic International, Inc. ("Dyadic" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:DYAI), a global biotechnology company focused on further applying its proprietary C1 gene expression platform to accelerate development, lower production costs and improve the performance of biologic vaccines and drugs at flexible commercial scales, today announced collaboration with Jiangsu Hengrui Medicine Co., Ltd. ("Hengrui") (SSE:600276) to apply Dyadic's C1 technology to the development of selected Hengrui biologic drug(s).

"We are very excited to partner with Hengrui, one of the most innovative and inventive global biopharmaceutical companies. This collaboration also highlights the appeal of C1's value proposition, producing cell lines at higher expression levels and lower cost, to address global demand for more efficient biomanufacturing processes of biologic vaccines and drugs. We are looking forward to a successful collaboration with Hengrui," said Dyadic's CEO, Mark Emalfarb.

Dr. Lianshan Zhang, Hengrui's R&D President, commented, "We are interested in Dyadic's C1 technology, which has potential to help us produce biotherapeutics in a more cost-effective fashion. As a result, we are leveraging our combined expertise and working closely with Dyadic as we share their vision of creating biomedicines to benefit patients globally."

About Dyadic International, Inc.

Dyadic International, Inc. is a global biotechnology company which is developing what it believes will be a potentially significant biopharmaceutical gene expression platform based on the fungus Thermothelomyces heterothallica (formerly Myceliophthora thermophila), named C1. The C1 microorganism, which enables the development and large scale manufacture of low cost proteins, has the potential to be further developed into a safe and efficient expression system that may help speed up the development, lower production costs and improve the performance of biologic vaccines and drugs at flexible commercial scales. Dyadic is using the C1 technology and other technologies to conduct research, development and commercial activities for the development and manufacturing of human and animal vaccines and drugs, such as virus like particles (VLPs) and antigens, monoclonal antibodies, Fab antibody fragments, Fc-Fusion proteins, biosimilars and/or biobetters, and other therapeutic proteins. Certain other research activities are ongoing which include the exploration of using C1 to develop and produce certain metabolites and other biologic products. Dyadic pursues research and development collaborations, licensing arrangements and other commercial opportunities with its partners and collaborators to leverage the value and benefits of these technologies in development and manufacture of biopharmaceuticals. In particular, as the aging population grows in developed and undeveloped countries, Dyadic believes the C1 technology may help bring biologic vaccines, drugs and other biologic products to market faster, in greater volumes, at lower cost, and with new properties to drug developers and manufacturers, and improve access and cost to patients and the healthcare system, but most importantly save lives.
