Ocean Bio-Chem, Inc. Featured as One of Three MicroCap Stocks Worth Consideration

Article Published in Grants Interest Rate Observer

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 11/29/12 -- Ocean Bio-Chem, Inc. (NASDAQ: OBCI), a leading manufacturer and distributor of appearance, performance, and maintenance products serving the marine, automotive, power sports, recreational vehicle and outdoor power equipment markets, is pleased to announce the Company is featured in the November 30, 2012 issue of "Grants Interest Rate Observer" in a story about three microcap companies that investors should consider.

Harper Stephens, director of investment management at Thompson Davis Asset Management, Richmond, Virginia, is quoted in the story: "We've owned Ocean Bio-Chem for about a year and a half now and they continue to execute fundamentally. They have a new product that is ramping and they just had an all-time record revenue quarter. In fact, over the past 12 quarters, it has broken revenue records nine times for that particular quarter of the year."

Mr. Stephens continues: "The stock trades at around half the peer group's earnings multiple, 70% below the price-to-sales multiple, 80% below the price-to-cash flow multiple and around half the price-to-book multiple of its peer group."

The article continues with a description of StarTron, an enzyme-based fuel additive that fights the corrosive effects of ethanol, as "Ocean Bio-Chem's prize elixir." It talks about the strong reviews of the product on Amazon and how the product produces repeat customers.

Ocean Bio-Chem is "doing about $9.5 million of StarTron sales annually," Mr. Stephens is quoted saying. "If they can continue to grow and take share from the competitors it could end up being a $50 million to $100 million per year product" in a $1 billion sector.

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility?

How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
