Highlights for the Second Quarter 2014:
- Reported revenue of $14,038 up 261% versus $3,880 over the same period in 2013 and up 136% from $5,942 in the 1

- Completed the development and purchased the initial inventory of All Natural Speed.
- Roger Cady, M.D. joins GelStat as its Chief Medical Advisor.
Larry Gershman, GelStat's CEO, said, "The second quarter of 2014 was another transformational quarter for GelStat as we increased sales of GelStat Migraine while preparing and purchasing inventory of Chews 2 Lose and All Natural Speed. Most importantly, we signed a definitive agreement to acquire Mastix Medica which we closed on July 7, 2014. This acquisition secured the future production of Chews 2 Lose, as well as brought significant revenue, resources and opportunities to GelStat."
Since the closing of the second quarter, the Company has achieved a number of significant milestones including:
- Closed the acquisition of Mastix Medica completing our vertical integration strategy and providing a solid foothold in the rapidly growing high-CBD hemp oil products market.
- Launched a new corporate website www.GelStat.com .
Robert Estey, COO of GelStat, said, "We have made great strides at Mastix Medica since the end of the second quarter. Several new products incorporating high-CBD industrial hemp oil have been developed by our in-house team and are ready for production and distribution to consumers in the near future. Purchase orders from five new customers have been received and are being produced and shipped over the next few months. Our product development project list is robust with a good combination of contract manufacturing customers and our own proprietary products."
Our primary objectives and outlook for the remainder of 2014:
- Increasing the marketing efforts to secure additional contract manufacturing opportunities for Mastix Medica. Mastix has a solid pipeline of projects and purchase orders in excess of $500,000 to be completed by the end of 2014.
- Building brand recognition and product placement through distribution agreements in select retailers for GelStat Migraine, Chews 2 Lose and All Natural Speed.
- Developing additional high-CBD products leveraging Mastix Medica's proprietary methods to make functional gums and lozenges.
- Collectively, GelStat forecasts revenue of $400,000 for the third quarter and $500,000 for the fourth quarter of 2014.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
