———————————————————— Part 1: CURRENT & (HUGE) PENDING EVENTS
The immediate excitement at BVTK is due to the massive deals being put together with partner Darkpulse Tech, which has patented ‘Darkpulse’ fiber-optic sensors that can detect temperature, structural integrity, and tunneling in applications such as border walls, mining, bridges, dams, and oil pipelines, as well as smart cities.
On October 20 BVTK released an 8-K specifying the percentages it will receive from the Darkpulse deals currently in the works. http://www.otcmarkets.com/edgar/GetFilingHtml?FilingID=12332433
. BVTK gets 20% for the previously announced deal, and 10% for each of the huge Indian and Indian subcontinent deals. And oh, yeah, “As a result of these recent agreements, DarkPulse anticipates its sales could potentially be between $1.5-$2B
”… so BVTK will get between 10 and 20% of 1.5 - 2 Billion. Let’s be conservative, and say 10% of 1.5 Billion. That’s 150 Million.
And then tonight, Darkpulse released a PR in which DARKPULSE provides further details on Bravatek 8-K from Friday!!! http://www.darkpulse.com/press/
Read Item 4 in the addendum of the 8-K:
4. Bravatek shall receive 10% compensation related to a second Agency Agreement between a third party UK entity whereby said entity will represent and sell DarkPulse’s products and services and act as distribution partner throughout the India Subcontinent (Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sr i Lanka & Bhutan), all of Middle East including GCC countries, U.A.E, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, and African continent in the O&G industry.
Now consider the language from today's PR from Darkpulse:
AGENCY AGREEMENT WILL INTRODUCE DARKPULSE’S TECHNOLOGY INTO KEY O&G MARKETS THROUGHOUT THE INDIA SUB-CONTINENT, MIDDLE EAST AND AFRICA
October 22, 2017 – NEW YORK, New York – DarkPulse Technology Holdings, Inc. (“DarkPulse” or the “Company”) announces that it has entered into an Agency Agreement with a Multi-National Agent/distributor, whereby Agent will act as a sales and distribution partner for DarkPulse’s patented BOTDA system.
Of course it's the same agency agreement. BVTK gets 10 percent, per BVTK's 8-K; and per item 5 of the addendum in the 8-K, total sales for Darkpulse could be 1.5 Billion to 2 Billion.
And the reason Darkpulse can be so confident of the numbers and short term time frame is that, per today's PR, their system is being offered as UPGRADE to existing sensor systems:
We are working closely with our new partner in a phased approach that will bring our technology to their existing customers as a system upgrade - offering us short term revenue.”
And this is a continuation of all the recent great news from this team: on October 11, they announced a $107 Million deal worth approximately $24.1 Million to Bravatek as a 20% finder’s fee due to Dr. Cellucci’s amazing network of connections. October 11 8-K: 107 Million Purchase order for DarkPulse, 20% Sales Commission of estimated 21.4 Million for Bravatek This Purchase ORDER (“PURCHASE ORDER”) is issued by DarkPulse technology Holdings, Inc. (“DPT”) for Services provided by Bravatek Solutions, Inc. (“BVTK”) under the Marketing Alliance Program (“MAP”) Agreement whereby both BVTK and DPT (“Parties”) having mutually agreed to enter into a strategic alliance dated 6 September 2017. BVTK will receive 20% commission for the project, estimated to be $21.4M on a total project value of $107M. https://www.otcmarkets.com/edgar/GetFilingHtml?FilingID=12321272
Let’s review the very recent, very SPEEDY history of this fast-moving relationship:
On September 5, Bravatek signed a breathtaking MAP agreement with DarkPulse
, which may be providing remote monitoring capabilities to the US-Mexico border wall, if all goes well. The full 8-K for the deal can be found at: https://www.otcmarkets.com/edgar/GetFilingHtml?FilingID=12268773
The 8-K makes it clear that BVTK will make 10 - 20% of revenue as a finder’s fee / sales commission from any DarkPulse deals. The exact percentage will be negotiated between BVTK and Darkpulse for each deal.
Bravatek will receive a lead-finder fee, to be mutually discussed and finally decided by DARKPULSE at the range of minimum of 10% to maximum of 20% of project revenue, with an exact fee to be determined, depending upon the overall project sales margin and cost of development and delivery of each project, payable NET 30 days after each client payment on delivered products received at DARKPULSE’s bank account.
On September 12, less than a week after BVTK's 8k, DarkPulse, a privately held company, released a PR on their website, for a $22 million deal facilitated by BVTK: http://www.darkpulse.com/press
From the PR: "The $22 million deal is with one of Europe’s largest Infrastructure & Mining Companies" and "This is the first segment of a multi-year agreement under which Arizona-based DPT will build the technology infrastructure and perimeter security systems for a large Infrastructure group and support 7 infrastructure and perimeter security deployments throughout Europe, according to a company statement. DarkPulse’s technology infrastructure monitoring agreement would total more than $100 million."
The DarkPulse twitter account retweeted a third-party tweet of a text from Tom Cellucci stating that BVTK gets "at least 20% which goes right to the bottom line": https://twitter.com/DaddyRicx/status/907597931548573696
; Basically, the only cost to BVTK for these deals is Dr. Cellucci’s time.
The DarkPulse twitter account has also been vocally supportive of BVTK in the days since the PR was released.
From 9/13/17: "Words of wisdom: any CEO that signs a deal for the sake of signing deals is a fool.. this guy is no fool" https://twitter.com/DarkPulseTech/status/907952796162514944
Same day: "Referring to comments on an investor hub type of site that claimed the BBTK [BVTK] deal I signed was "fluff" - my job is to raise revenue not fluff" : https://twitter.com/DarkPulseTech/status/907955380524904449
And just in case there's any doubt, yes it was a "Typo.. $BVTK" https://twitter.com/DarkPulseTech/status/907955764513439744
There was a also a September 7 third party tweet of a text that provided important background info: "Darkpulse sales with Gov, DoD, DHS go thru Bravatek SEWP contract vehicle" https://twitter.com/Trade_Trigger/status/905770911420305408
AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER, THEY LOUDLY HINTED AT A COMING BILLION DOLLAR DEAL:
From 9/22/2017: "Relationship with $BVTK continues to expand; deal finalised for India agency agreement valued $1B +
...Key Hire... PR soon" https://twitter.com/DarkPulseTech/status/911302302379724806
From 9/25/17 "Meetings with various heads of state this week.. finalising partnership agreements... team continues to grow.. key alliances lining up" https://twitter.com/DarkPulseTech/status/912319000213893123
From 9/29/17: "One signature away from Indian Subcontinent,Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka & Bhutan - all of Middle East and Africa" @FedEx https://twitter.com/DarkPulseTech/status/913742915754692608
From 10/2/17: "Very productive weekend working with Dr. Cellucci $bvtk looking forward to a very busy week.. India done deal PR soon" https://twitter.com/DarkPulseTech/status/914883241311686656 AND YES, on 9/28/17 BVTK released an 8-K regarding a joint venture being created with DarkPulse in which BVTK would be a 40% owner. http://www.otcmarkets.com/edgar/GetFilingHtml?FilingID=12298053
; So we're getting a substantial piece of that ever-expanding pie. (HELLOOO... Did you see that $1B above?
October 12 Darkpulse Tweet: Regarding PO issued to $bvtk- we are in final stages to hire the PhD who will run the Eurasian office. Expect him to be onboard in 2 weeks https://twitter.com/DarkPulseTech/status/918587957757562880
October 12 Darkpulse Tweet: Slight delay due to Canadian holidays expect India Subcontinent, Middle East $ Africa deal to come back signed shortly - will issue 2nd PO https://twitter.com/DarkPulseTech/status/918588680058626048
October 18 Darkpulse Tweet: New manufacturing partner coming on board for everything OCONUS including India & Eurasia https://twitter.com/DarkPulseTech/status/920626451048730634
(OCONUS is an acronym for Outside the Continental US, FYI.)
October 12 Darkpulse Tweet: Traveling today expect PR regarding the recent deals signed early new week- apologies for the delay https://twitter.com/DarkPulseTech/status/921419694942416896
Remember, in Darkpulse’s October 12 release about the $107 Million / $24 Million on their website, they included this sentence confirming the development of massive, $Billion-scale orders: “After seeing how effective Bravatek is as a strategic partner, we decided to join forces in a substantive way to accelerate our mutual growth. We are finalizing distribution deals to yield literally over $1 B in orders in the short term for our team.
Earlier, I said this one could be EXTREMELY lucrative. However, if they're talking about billion-dollar deals (and they have now included that in an 8-k, on 10-20-17, so they must have some very solid paperwork to back it up), EXTREMELY might be a serious understatement. http://www.otcmarkets.com/edgar/GetFilingHtml?FilingID=12332433
1. we’re waiting on the official release of PRs for India, and Indian subcontinent agency agreements, which may total over $1 Billion, and likely over $100 Million for Bravatek.
2. With news of these deals in hand, Tom Cellucci is once again talking to equity investors, per a post on the Facebook fan page, and confirmed in the 10/25 conference call:. “That ultra conservative PR caught the eye (and respect) of several additional equity firms, representing ‘smart money’…first meeting at 11 AM Monday”
3. In the conference call 10/25, he confirmed the intent to buy out the remaining convertible debt, and that there would be revenue in the next quarterly financials.
———————————————————— Part 2: Other recent events & MAP developments
During the month of August, more or less, the company put out a 10-K filing, and three 10-Q filings, on an accelerating cadence. Then, finally, at the beginning of October, the last 10-Q necessary to go current was released. YES, BVTK IS CURRENT NOW! These weren't great financials, since the company was rebuilding… the point was to go current and prepare the company for the big news to come. But everyone is wildly impatient for the big news, NOW NOW NOW (including yours truly), and have been discounting the massive progress being made in getting current and building Marketing Alliance Partnerships (MAPs) with complementary companies.
OBVIOUSLY DARKPULSE ABOVE IS HUGE. But let’s consider another of these new MAP companies… One of the biggest is probably going to be CrucialTrak, which just won best-in-show at the ISC West Show earlier this year for it’s four-method biometric identification scanner, BACS, which can identify people in one second or less based on facial, retinal, touchless fingerprint, and palm vein pattern.
On October 10, BVTK released a 10-K for a LOI to create a JV with CrucialTrak, with BVTK owning 35% of the joint venture. http://www.otcmarkets.com/edgar/GetFilingHtml?FilingID=12319193
; ...clearly Dr. Cellucci sees some serious potential with this one, and is strengthening the agreement to improve our position when contracts are signed.
This follows the earlier announcement of CrucialTrak as a MAP: http://www.nasdaq.com/press-release/crucialtrak-joins-forces-with-bravatek-as-its-newest-development-and-marketing-alliance-partner-20170811-00454
Some marketing videos about the CrucialTrak BACS system: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LIuI_cFAos&t=462s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WVTmwJICuU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAFu9qOt-Mc
The speed and convenience of this system rivals card swiping and RFID technologies, which means we may be at what is known as an inflection point, the point at which a new system can be adopted rapidly because it outcompetes existing systems for any of speed, convenience, or price. Furthermore, as a touchless system, CrucialTrak’s BACS does not itself become an infectious disease vector, as touch fingerprint systems sometimes can.
Check out the company’s website for more about the BACS solution: http://crucialtrak.com/BACS/main/main.php
And again, as with the eCrypt One email system, CrucialTrak almost directly addresses a recent directive from Donald Trump:
Sec. 7. Expedited Completion of the Biometric Entry-Exit Tracking System. (a) The Secretary of Homeland Security shall expedite the completion and implementation of a biometric entry-exit tracking system for all travelers to the United States, as recommended by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.
Given the quality and speed and ease-of-use of the CrucialTrak system, it has a good chance at winning contracts with the federal government at international airports nationwide, as well as at other security locations.
By adding CrucialTrak to its product offerings, BVTK significantly strengthens its security product portfolio. This isn’t something to be taken lightly.
Also, you should probably read Nick Serrano's DD on CrucialTrak, as posted by jmmatthews... if he's right that this is going to play a role in a federal roll-out of biometric ID systems at international airports, etc, it really could be huge: http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=135061212
———————————————————— Part 3: TELECOM MEGA DEALS UNDER DEVELOPMENT
In addition to all the above, Bravatek has a telecom division that it is expanding via acquisition and partnership. This enterprise is clearly taking longer than Dr. Cellucci intended, but it’s still moving forward, so I still believe all the below still applies. It’s just running a few months behind schedule. Which may not matter with what’s happening with DarkPulse (above).
Most of us saw the hilarious poopy pants comments. (But see here for the original if you missed it…. http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=132256864
) We’ve all seen the dropped hints about equity investors, and billionaire friends, and the suggestion that we hold onto our seatbelts. But this is a pink sheet subpenny stock, so we discount it, massively. We trade for small percentage gains, and we are grateful to make that, rather than lose it all. Business as usual on the OTC.
But what if it isn’t business as usual? What if something massive really is coming to BVTK, and soon? How could it happen? And how soon?
On June 12, Tom made his ‘hold onto your seatbelts’ tweet, without explanation, and then didn’t appear to follow through. Subsequent inquiries from several sources have produced responses about lawyers, and stakeholders, and coming soon.
All summer, BVTK was working hard to churn out over a year's worth of financials, with audited 10-Ks, and the company is now current as of the beginning of October, 2017.
The easy assumption is that Tom expected financials to be done sooner, and was expecting to release news soon thereafter, to make sure the company was current before news was released. That’s probably partly correct.
It’s also reasonable to assume that the final details of their contract negotiations are a little more involved and taking a little more time than he’s letting on. So it’s probably a little of one, and a little of the other.
It will happen when it happens. Though it should happen soon, now that we're current.
But what kind of contract can suddenly produce such huge news and revenues that the CEO of a publicly held company would state that people will poop themselves?
The company has two basic lines of business:
1. Highly-secure email servers (and other related security software)
2. Telecom tower services
The whitelist-only email server with always-on encryption and antivirus is a brilliant combination of technologies. But the company is waiting for customers to start buying. Some of those purchases may be huge (hello, they’re in discussions with the U.S. military, and at least a few F1000 companies), but they are also almost certainly not final yet. There’s a long demo, trial, and decision-making process for organizations of this size to acquire major software… and a replacement email server is very major indeed. It’s not the sort of thing that Tom can predict with 100% certainty either. That kind of decision takes *time*.
So what about Item 2?
Viking telecom was a relatively small organization until very recently. Then, this spring / summer, they hired a rockstar project manager, and signed funding/profit allocation agreements with an additional 2 companies in virtually the same business. If you read the description of those agreements, it makes the companies very nearly subsidiaries. Legally independent, still, but contractually bound to allocate most of their revenue to Bravatek/Viking, while Bravatek/Viking provides funding and manages the difficult task of getting projects.
Revenues for the two deals combine to 9 million, per annum, minimum:
(2.5 Million here) http://www.nasdaq.com/press-release/bravatek-and-mhc-forge-a-strong-strategic-alliance-20170602-00876 https://finance.yahoo.com/news/bravatek-mhc-forge-strong-strategic-211700292.html
(and 6.5 Million here) http://www.nasdaq.com/press-release/bravatek-and-helpcomm-announce-a-winwin-strategic-alliance-20170607-00579 https://finance.yahoo.com/news/bravatek-helpcomm-announce-win-win-130000889.html
I believe this is the seed, and foreshadows, a much larger version of the same business model that is about to be revealed.
Bear in mind that Tom has been tweeting for over a month about his multiple meetings with high-dollar equity investors. What on earth for? He doesn’t need high dollar equity investors for the email server part of the business. That has already been developed, and is just starting to get major customer interest. It will sell without millions in equity infusions.
Likewise, we’re all excited about the hints Tom has dropped about being on NASDAQ sooner than we expect, and his billionaire friend and investment funds, etc. Some assume that the high-net-worth individuals are going to buy up shares on the open market, themselves; others understand that this wouldn’t require negotiations with the company, and doesn’t provide the company any cash for future projects. No, the equity investors will expect either preferred or restricted shares for their investment, and they won’t provide the cash for growth or a buyback out of charity; they expect a major return on their investment. And not just a return due to a buyback using their cash. If they wanted to run up the stock price they could damn well do that themselves. Probably any one of them could run up the stock price to 10 cents in a matter of days if they really wanted.
So what kind of major return on investment can a company with a small telecom tower service operation provide to gigantic equity investors?
Simple: they buy into a MAJOR telecom tower service operation (or perhaps two, given Tom’s communications about there being two major deals now) using the equity investors’s money, and the know-how and familiarity of their existing telecom services staff. These major tower service operations will already have major revenue, but might be regionally constrained, or might not have the cash to outcompete or acquire their larger competitors.
Enter a public company with a large group of equity investors looking over its shoulders. They can make acquisitions, or provide funding for expansion, and do it all secure in the knowledge that they will make money because the companies they are acquiring are ALREADY making money. And I wouldn't be surprised if the deal is very similar to the ones we've already seen, funding, projects, and organization in exchange for majority revenue share.
Let’s take a moment for a brief introduction to one aspect of the telecom tower industry: collocation service companies.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, telecom companies all built and operated their own towers. (Or contracted companies to put the towers up for them.) But that quickly revealed itself to be expensive and inefficient. It takes time and money to put up a tower. And if each company is putting up its own towers, then there may be almost half a dozen towers covering the same area, when all that is needed is one, with ALL the telecom company’s equipment up on it.
So the business rapidly changed. The telecom companies started selling the towers, and leasing back the space on them to locate their telecom equipment. Thus the term ‘collocation’. The collocation company builds / owns / maintains the towers, and leases the space on the towers to the telecom company, or, optimally for them, to multiple telecom companies. Maybe they also perform equipment maintenance and upgrades. Or maybe they hire subcontractors like Viking to do the actual equipment maintenance, and upgrades. Their choice.
Meanwhile, the major wireless telecom company bills wireless customers, manages the network, and pays their subcontractors and collocation companies regularly to keep their towers operational. The cost of the lease becomes a clear business expense, meaning it can probably be deducted from federal taxable revenues.
Consider this tweet:
BVTK negotiating JV agreement for large stake in Telecom site ownership/ operations worth significant multiple of announced Telecom services https://twitter.com/bravatek/status/872806307354607616 ;
A significant multiple of 9 million? Nice!!!
And that was from June 8, just days before the hold onto your seatbelts tweet, on June 12:
Let's make it simple today: "Hold on to your seat-belts" folks. We've been busy at BVTK and it'll show this week... https://twitter.com/bravatek/status/874247169154396160 ;
I’d hazard a guess that this tweet meant that an agreement in principle had been made regarding the above JV stake. But of course it’s a long way from an agreement in principle to a final contract, and the execution of the same, so we’re still waiting for that news to drop.
Another hint was dropped in the recent (accidental ?) release of a large loan agreement letter on ihub and twitter (yep, 20 mill!) : https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DEpd0XKU0AQqPvP.jpg:large https://investorshub.advfn.com/uimage/uploads/2017/7/13/kpav[IMG_0475.PNG
The relevant quote is: “This funding shall be provided, in Carebourn’s discretion, in support of your Build to Suit initiatives with the major telecommunication carriers”
(Also, the same 20 million is now also referenced on the company’s website, http://bravatek.com/solutions/viking-telecom/
; : “Please review the twenty-million-dollar letter of credit
that we already have in hand and rest assured that as a publicly traded company, Bravatek has access to unlimited capital to complete even large-scale Build to Suit initiatives
Look up build to suit, and telecommunications, together. The reading gets very interesting. http://www.3480g.com/build-to-suit/
The idea behind the build-to-suit concept is to shift all aspects of tower siting-including zoning, construction and maintenance, to a third party. Carriers, increasingly burdened with competitive pressures, now can pass the time, capital and risk involved with tower siting to a vendor and focus their money on their core business, say build-to-suit companies.
So how big is the telecom services, build to suit, and collocation industry?
A sizeable fraction of the US telecom industry.
Here are a few examples of public companies in this industry. (There are a lot of private companies, about which I couldn’t find detailed information, and we are probably doing our deals with one or more of these private companies. The public companies here are being provided for informational purposes only. Do not expect to see them mentioned as partners in these pending deals. They are already public, and likely can already get all the funding they need.) Lend Lease Group (www.lendlease.com). Ticker LLC.AX:
Stock price: 17.35. Shares outstanding: 564 Million. Market cap: 10.12 Billion. Revenue 2016 15 Billion Gross Profit 2016: 1.7 Billion
Of course that particular company has other non-cell-tower properties as well, so it might not be the best example, but try this: American Tower Corporation (www.americantower.com , an REIT) : Ticker: AMT
Stock price: 136.04 Shares outstanding: 425 Million Market Cap 57 Billion Revenue 2016 5.7 Billion Gross Profit 2016 3.9 Billion Crown Castle ( www.Crowncastle.com, another REIT): ticker: CCI
Stock price: 101.1 Shares outstanding: 366 Million; Market Cap: 36.9 Billion; Revenue, 2016: 3.9 Billion Gross Profit 2016 2.11 Billion
Additionally, read the following page, and you should get an idea of how deeply the wireless carriers are dependent on the tower owners these days: http://www.steelintheair.com/Blog/2017/03/the-glorified-wireless-carrier-lease-renegotiation-bonanza.html
So owning a tower owner / operator, or partnering with a couple of them, may come with significant revenue, if the money involved is significant enough to worry the major telecom companies enough that they are trying to renegotiate existing leases.
If Tom is able to strike deals with a few mid-sized private tower site operators for funding and revenue sharing, at even a fraction of the above revenue numbers, we could see a very large share price appreciation VERY QUICKLY. And if the plan is to keep making these deals until BVTK controls a nationwide cell-site development company on the order of the above public REITs? The sky is the limit!
But how can a sub penny stock make those kinds of major deals?
Again, this is where the equity investors come in. They will most likely be providing funds SPECIFICALLY to acquire or partner with existing private cell-site operators, SPECIFICALLY for the virtually-guaranteed revenue they provide. As those revenue numbers are released (and depending on who Bravatek is partnering with they could range from a few million to several hundred million), the BVTK stock price will appreciate dramatically, and be supported by massive public interest. THAT’S what is attracting the equity investors. They’ll be in for a few years at least, during which the stock price will continue to grow, and they will count their preferred or restricted stock as an asset. And they really won’t be in any rush to sell.
And that stock price appreciation can begin very soon after Tom
1. Updates financials to go current (DONE as of 10/6/17!!!)
2. Announces finalized equity investments (one set of stakeholders)
3. Announces finalized JV agreements with private telecom site operators (another set of stakeholders).
I seriously doubt 3 happens without 2, since it’s ultimately all about the money for the telecom site operators, who probably need cash to expand; and it’s likely that 2 can’t happen without 1, since many of these large equity investors will have stringent requirements for documentation and being current.
So, yes, we’re probably all waiting on financials, and the auditors. Tom is probably as impatient as the rest of us.
On July 24th, BVTK released one of the most indicative PR’s yet:
Bravatek Solutions, Inc. (OTC-PINK:BVTK) announces that it has formed a Joint Venture ("JV") firm called BravatekST, LLC for the sole purpose of addressing its mega-sales pipeline opportunities.
Note that BravatekST is the same company referenced in the Carebourn letter for the 20 million. So this joint venture firm is going to be the vehicle for some very large telecom initiatives, with addressable revenue probably many multiples of the 20 million LOC.
There’s been speculation that this joint venture firm and mega deals have to do with AT&T’s recent contract to build the nationwide first responder’s network, FirstNet, which was a multi-billion contract from the federal government, because the states where BVTK’s new partners are located were some of the first states to opt-in for FirstNet.
There has also been some speculation that it might be targeted to help T-mobile expand its network to be truly competitive with AT&T and Verizon on a nation-wide basis. First, because of a tongue-in-cheek description of Bravatek’s Viking Telecom as “your un-landlords” on http://bravatek.com/solutions/viking-telecom/,
; which seems to be a sly reference to T-Mobile’s “Un-carrier” marketing campaign; and second because T-mobile just spent billions buying new broad-spectrum licenses, which will have to be built out aggressively this year and next for the company to profit: https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2017/04/t-mobile-dominates-spectrum-auction-will-boost-lte-network-across-us/
; ….and…. https://newsroom.t-mobile.com/news-and-blogs/tmobile-spectrum-auction-win.htm
…And the contracts for these build-outs are probably still being pinned down.
Whatever it is, we’ll find out pretty soon. I don’t know how much longer it will take Cellucci to get all his ducks in a row, but once he does, it really could be explosive. CURRENT ACTIVITY ON THIS!!!
On September 21, BVTK released an 8-K regarding an LOI to acquire HelpComm in its entirety. If all goes well, the close should occur by October 31st. http://www.otcmarkets.com/edgar/GetFilingHtml?FilingID=12289195
; Whatever the exact plan for telecom, it's clearly moving forward. I would hazard a guess that full ownership of Helpcomm was a requirement in negotiations to demonstrate advanced capabilities for whatever massive contract is being discussed.
There was also a company tweet October 18: “BVTK CEO and team completing HelpComm acquisition” https://twitter.com/bravatek/status/920625088155746305
And on October 25, an 8-K for the Material Definitive Agreement to purchase HelpComm: http://www.otcmarkets.com/edgar/GetFilingHtml?FilingID=12338551
So it’s getting close!!
———————————————————— Part 4: ECRYPT ONE EMAIL SERVER MEGA DEALS UNDER DEVELOPMENT
I am convinced that one or more of the mega-deals Tom Cellucci is working on is in fact for the Ecrypt One email server product, probably for the U.S. military or related government organizations. So I’m going to take a little time to examine the publicly available evidence. Firstly
, as background, let’s acknowledge that cybersecurity failures have been in the news a LOT this year. Secondarily
, also as background, there’s the May 11 Trump executive order on ‘Strengthening the Cybersecurity of Federal Networks and Critical Infrastructure’ which directly orders the U.S. federal government to improve its IT security in ways that overlap pretty closely with the email server product we provide: https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/05/11/presidential-executive-order-strengthening-cybersecurity-federal
There was 60 days to present this plan, which ended this summer. Thirdly
, a little info about the email server itself:
Our email server operates on a whitelist only basis, so that
Only authorized people or organizations can email IN
Only authorized people or groups can email OUT
Only authorized people or groups can send attachments in or out http://bravatek.com/solutions/software/ecrypt-one/
This basic architecture, itself, is almost enough to stop most worms and viruses in their tracks since any IT professional knows the weakest link in antiviral security is the extremely poor judgement of users who click on almost EVERYTHING that is sent to them, without critical thought. (Yes, I’m in IT, and it can be sad how trusting some people are.) By allowing only approved users to send email into the organization, you should very nearly eliminate fishing and similar operations designed to seed your organization with a viral payload.
The server, however, also combines standard spam identification features, anti-virus plugins, audit capabilities, and encryption capabilities to further secure email and make breaches more difficult.
These capabilities will be attractive not only to the U.S. military and government, but also to
Banks, which are often the target of sophisticated email fishing operations;
Hospitals networks, which are increasingly ripe, but soft, targets for data hostage-taking, and which moreover must abide by data security regulations which would only be helped by restrictions on the ability to email OUT
Any large corporations that are growing nervous about the potential for a massive breach, emailed viral payload, or data hostage-taking.
If you haven’t been paying attention, you might now be thinking, “hey, that’s great in theory, but where’s the evidence anyone is interested?”
Well, read on. I’ll address that shortly, but first there are some basic numbers you should have in mind as you read. Software can be sold on several different models. A simple sale is often used for individual users, but large organizations often pay a license on a per-seat basis. That appear to be the model BVTK is making available.
, consider, please, the eCrypt pricing structure, which lists:
$150 per seat per year for government clients,
$200 per seat, per year for military clients, and
$225 per seat outside of government or military: https://twitter.com/AdrianCantu3/status/892228631581212672
The original source for this appears to have been the Price List that appears helpfully on the Bravatek Sales library, here: http://www.theperformancecenter.com/BRAVATEKSALES/library.htm
What would this pricing structure mean if some big organizations that might be considering it were to purchase it across the board?
Consider the US Department of Homeland Security, with 229 thousand, employees, per wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Department_of_Homeland_Security
) ; or the U.S Department of Defense, with 740 thousand civilian, and 1.3 million active duty military ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Department_of_Defense
A simple per-seat license calculation based on these numbers gives us the following:
DHS: 229K x 150 = 34.3 Million / year potential
DOD, civilian: 740K x 150: 111 Million / year potential
DOD, military: 1.3M x 200: 260 Million / year potential
However, it has been pointed out to me by CWatt250, that the simple calculation is an underestimate because Tom already tweeted the market potential for DHS, with higher employee numbers, as well as rates for Services and Support:
May 14 Bravatek tweet: “DHS Market Potential for Ecrypt One: Employees (about 277.543) with Software Annual Rev-$41.63 M; Services-$15.82 M and Support- $12.49 M” https://twitter.com/bravatek/status/863843446913630208
As CWatt250 points out, Services and Support add an additional 68% annually to the simple calculation I used just for the per-seat software license.
Thus, the more accurate projection would be: DHS: 277K x 150 + 68% = 69.8 Million / year potential
DOD, civilian: 740K x 150 + 68% = 186.48 Million / year potential
DOD, military: 1.3M x 200 + 68% = 436.8 Million / year potential
And if for some reason numbers totaling almost $690 Million annually aren’t enough to get your blood boiling, consider this fun tweet, also from May 14: “Our Bplan: ‘ Over 220 agencies/org. in US Gov't--DHS is only one of them’…” https://twitter.com/bravatek/status/863844352178757634
And outside of the government? Consider the size of one major hospital and insurance organization in this country, Kaiser Permanente, based in California, with 186 thousand employees, and billions in revenue: ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiser_Permanente
) Kaiser Permanente 186K x 225 + 68% = 70.3 Million / year potential.
I chose Kaiser Permanente semi-randomly, because there is a connection with BVTK through the past work of the wife of the VP of Sales; however, in truth, that kind of connection is no guarantee they will be working with us. But now consider that Kaiser Permanente is only one of several large hospital networks in this country: http://www.compassphs.com/blog/healthcare-trends/healthcare-fast-facts-top-30-largest-hospital-systems-in-america/
And NOW, FINALLY
, let’s look at the evidence that Bravatek’s Ecrypt One is being seriously considered by at least a few of these large organizations:
On June 29, a PR was released stating that BVTK had signed 3 Fortune 1000 companies to Pilot Programs (read: trials). One company is in Health Care, one in IT, and one in Aerospace / Defense. http://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/bvtk/news
ACCESSWIRE / June 29, 2017 / Bravatek Solutions, Inc. (OTC PINK: BVTK), a next generation cyber security software, hardware and solutions provider, today announced that it has agreed to terms to launch pilot programs with 3 prominent Fortune 1000 companies in the fields of health Care, IT services and Aerospace/Defense. Mr. Jim Brown, Senior Vice President of Sales has been working diligently to coordinate the launch of our Pilot Program and these agreements signify a healthy trend that is just beginning to show the significant potential for our patent-pending software email solution, Ecrypt One.
If you feel like playing the guessing game as to *which* health care company it is, by all means, go ahead. Here are some of the Healthcare companies just in the Forbes 500, as of 2016. Note that this doesn’t include Kaiser Permanente, since it’s legally a non-profit (but, ahem, a very wealthy one): http://www.beckershospitalreview.com/hospital-management-administration/15-healthcare-companies-on-fortune-s-global-500-list.html
What about Aerospace / Defense, and IT? Well, there are almost too many of them to bother making a list, and I’m getting sidetracked…
, let’s focus on the tweeted speculation and tweeted documentation regarding BVTK and the U.S Military and related government organizations. Tom’s tweets etc. in that regard have been out of this world.
So let’s review the statements regarding military deals that may be in the works:
First, from the June 29 PR, a further statement:
The early success of our pilot program has made it clear that corporations, as well as government and military agencies, are now seriously looking for the security benefits that Ecrypt One provides.
Then, from the endless sea of twitter:
June 16, Company tweet: BVTK Board updated on two "company game changer" late-stage sales negotiations. Input was required due to the magnitude of opportunities... https://twitter.com/bravatek/status/875704373996924928

July 10: 3rd-party tweeted email exchange: “Are you saying this isn’t the game changer we’ve been waiting for?” “Exactly—you guys will SHIT YOUR PANTS on the game changers” https://twitter.com/hpar32/status/884419013274734592
July 11, company tweet: “BVTK's CEO invited to give detailed brief at NATO Headquarters on Monday, July 17, 2017 (fyi--not open to the public)…” https://twitter.com/bravatek/status/884760491083608064
July 18, company tweets: “NATO and Smithsonian (Jim Brown) yesterday...DHS today with Jim Brown (BVTK's VP of Sales) who's still in town with BVTK's CEO…” https://twitter.com/bravatek/status/887298959936565249
Same day: “Pentagon folks tomorrow…” https://twitter.com/bravatek/status/887299766174060544

July 20: Company tweet: BVTK's VP of Sales left D.C. yesterday after several successful
meetings and now is in Chicago "spread the word" at meeting about Ecrypt One https://twitter.com/bravatek/status/888018801891180544 Editorial comment: So the several meetings July 19 to close business with the U.S. government and military were successful? Don’t hold back, Tom. Tell us more!
July 20: Tweeted photo of Tom Cellucci with the NATO supreme commander, as well as some other recognizable figures, such as US Air Force Lieutenant General Jeff Lofgren (original source Tom Cellucci’s FB page): https://twitter.com/OTCMillionaire/status/888161922448728064
July 21, tweeted text exchange: “Nothing comes close to these mega orders we’re working” https://twitter.com/DaddyRicx/status/888539432134918144
July 21, Company tweet: "Excellent progress made on legal front with game changers...“ https://twitter.com/bravatek/status/888364109124820992
July 22, 3rd-party tweeted text exchange. “We have mega orders to come—the size you haven’t seen in OTC” “Who are these mega orders with, government?” “Both gov and telecom” https://twitter.com/Trade_Trigger/status/888776391239532544
July 25, Company tweet: Positive Feedback from last week's NATO visit is overwhelming... https://twitter.com/bravatek/status/889832046687903746
July 28, 3rd-party tweeted text exchange. “How is progress on mega deals?…” “All Going well” “With Gov or military?” “Both”
… “working with Nato DHS DOD, etc” : https://twitter.com/Trade_Trigger/status/890940633845727232
…. (For anyone who is unfamiliar with the acronyms, those last two are Department of Homeland Security, and Department of Defense)
August 4, company tweet of a thank-you letter from US Air Force Lieutenant General Jeff Lofgren, who is currently Deputy Chief of Staff, Capability Development for the NATO Headquarters Allied Command Tranformation https://twitter.com/bravatek/status/893491751742312450
…. NATO currently has two commands, which can be thought of as current operations, and forward-thinking transformation. This is the forward-thinking transformation command. These are the guys in charge of determining what comes next. http://www.act.nato.int/deputy-chief-of-staff-capability-development
So in sum, there is plenty of evidence that there is more than one mega deal, that one is with telecom, and that one or MORE are with the government and/or military.
Now that we're current, it shouldn't be long for final details to be ironed out on these deals; and then news bomb after news bomb will be coming our way. However, it’s possible that we are waiting, in part, for the federal government appropriations process, and given the disarray in Washington, that may not move quite as fast as we investors would like. On the other hand, the new Federal fiscal year just started, so it may not be much longer. Remember, we’ve only been current for a week as of this writing (October 15th).
———————————————————— Part 5: ADDITIONAL INFO, REFERENCES, AND DD
———————————————————— First, some recent tweets to keep track of what’s happening behind the scenes:
There was an investor conference call October 25. It was recorded by both the company and shareholders. It can be accessed at http://bravatek.com/bravatek-investor-conference-call-audio-recording/
or, for the investor recording, http://tctrips.club/Site/BVTK/BVTK_CC_10252017.mp3
Key takeaways: No Reverse Split, working on equity investments to buy back convertible debt and fund operations. For more, take a listen. There’s some good stuff in there.
Third Party tweet of email 10/25 after the CC: “$BVTK Mega deals are still on! Time is PST, so it was after 7 Tom's time.” (Tom emails “Yep” in reply to the question of if the tweeted mega deals are still in the works.) https://twitter.com/CarlMattBlack/status/923333471023407105
Company tweet October 18: “BVTK CEO and team completing HelpComm acquisition” https://twitter.com/bravatek/status/920625088155746305

; Note that both the language of the tweet, and subsequent inquiries by several posters have strongly suggested that there is more coming than "just" the LOI with CrucialTrak. And in fact it was quickly followed with the 107 Million / 24 Million deal with Darkpulse. But there’s likely still more coming!

August 28, Company tweet confirms no RS: “"ABSOLUTELY"says BVTK's CEO about getting current with its FINS and "NO" to BVTK management's desire for RS!!!

August 11, the day the first CrucialTrak PR was released, a 3rd party tweet of a text, confirmation that CrucialTrak isn’t the ‘hold on to your seatbelts news’ but is big in its own way: https://twitter.com/araa2121/status/896134724380504064
