Lot78 Inc (OTCMKTS:LOTE) is a micro-cap stock that has grabbed hold of the attention of traders during the stock’s recent bounce. The proximal catalyst is the company’s announcement of its intention to target opportunities associated with the Province of Ontario’s announced $20MM of incentives to build electric vehicle charging stations.
According to the release, LOTE has signed an exclusivity agreement with sPARK (www.sparkev.ca) Electric Vehicle Charging to market, sell and install Lot 78, Inc.’s Juice Bar Electric Vehicle Charger (www.juicebarev.com) products in Canada. The stock is breaking out to new 9-month highs in a move that appears, at least in part, in response to the headline.
Lot78 Inc (OTCMKTS:LOTE) trumpets itself as a company that is a business development company based in Connecticut. The Company plans to invest and help grow companies it believes are either under-preforming or would be helped by the business experience of the Company.
The Company is immediately targeting a 20% holding in an electric vehicle charging station company, Juice Bar EV. This initial investment is expected to lead to negotiations to purchase the rest of Juice Bar EV. The Company will not restrict its investment opportunities to any specific market.
According to company materials, “The Company was incorporated in the State of Nevada on June 27, 2008.

We’ve witnessed 62% piled on for shareholders of the listing during the trailing week, but this action is running counter to the larger trend in the name. This is emblematic of the stock. LOTE has a history of dramatic rallies. Furthermore, the listing has witnessed a pop in interest, as transaction volume levels have recently pushed just shy of 1100% over what the stock has registered over the longer term.
Earning a current market cap value of $849.5M, LOTE has virtually no reported cash on the books, which is balanced by virtually no total current liabilities. LOTE is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $65K. However, the company is seeing declines on the top line on a quarterly y/y basis, with revenues cratering at -85.6%. This is an exciting story, and we look forward to a follow-up chapter as events transpire.
