Buyer Beware in Ecosciences Inc (OTCMKTS:ECEZ)


Ecosciences Inc (OTCMKTS:ECEZ) is a stock that’s recently started to get some attention as it pops up to challenge the penny level after spending some time in sub-penny land over recent months.

ECEZ is a stock with a long history of big moves in recent years. Investors have been having a second look at it of late.

This is actually something of an interesting concept play. You will find the following quote associated with ECEZ probably a lot:

“According to several recent studies, the overall market size in the United States for contaminated site remediation falls between $7-8 billion annually. The demand for these services is mainly driven by government entities such as the Department of Energy, the Department of Defense, Resources Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Superfund site projects and underground storage tank regulations. Although there are several innovative technologies available one of the fastest growing areas is likely bioremediation.”

That’s recent research from the publication “WaterWorld” (an online news and technology source serving engineers, managers, and consultants in the Water/Wastewater Industry Worldwide) and it is possibly relevant here for prospective ECEZ investors.

Ecosciences’ management commented, “The process to obtain government agency contracts is a long one with many steps. The grease-caused sewage system problems facing local governments are real, and we feel our products can be of great assistance. We believe that over the long term, we can be successful in being a government vendor of choice, specifically in the northeast but also nationally and eventually internationally. We have many milestones to accomplish, but feel confident that we will put ourselves in a position to be considered as a strong candidate. We look forward to providing additional updates as more progress is made.”

ECEZ execs updated shareholders with a list of action steps that they are planning on from here, including discussions with engineering firms to join forces to make pitches to government bodies; presentations, bids and applications to be a preferred solution to municipalities and states for the grease build up problems; additions of seasoned professionals to the biz-dev team for gov’t advocacy and lobbying for local government contracts; alliances with distributors to jointly service government agencies in need of solutions; and treatment tests cases for showcasing the effectiveness of its “EZE” products.

In addition, as the Company has made clear in its recent press release, “it is implementing marketing programs for its Trap-Eze bioremediation products to food service establishments in response to the opportunities it sees created, in part, by various cities’ and municipalities’ regulation of grease trap usage.”

Those are great ideas. perations and headcount with no organic sales growth.

On september 22 ECEZ announced it is implementing marketing programs for its Trap-Eze bioremediation products to food service establishments in response to the opportunities it sees created, in part, by various cities’ and municipalities’ regulation of grease trap usage.

Through its research, the Company sees that certain municipalities such as New York City have enacted regulations regarding the handling of fats, oils and grease (often referred to as “FOG”) in restaurants, hotel and school kitchens, hospitals, bars and other food service establishments.
