Calpian, Inc. (CLPI)
Calpian, Inc. (CLPI) has forged a powerful combination of steady cash flow here in the U.S. on the one hand, and explosive growth potential abroad in India on the other. Both business units are growing fast and creating huge value that has so far gone largely overlooked due to the company’s rapid rise.
Calpian is a leader in the U.S. business for providing access to credit and debit card payment processors for merchants and also for making investments in the resulting cash flow streams. Calpian's management team, with over 60 years of combined experience in payments, has also tapped into a super-hot growth opportunity in India where it is the leader in consumer payments using the cell phone - the most powerful financial trend in the developing world today. The company's revenues in India grew 300% year to year and are headed for triple digit growth again in 2013. Examples of this service in other countries like Kenya show that consumers need this simple payment tool and adopt it quickly. In Kenya, over 90% of the adult population has adopted a mobile phone money transfer system known as M-PESA, which produces over $100 million pretax profit after only 7 years in business. Calpian is providing this same service in India via Money on Mobile (MoM). India is a market at least 30 times larger than Kenya with vast potential. Calpian is the undisputed market leader in the space and looks poised to dominate the largest market for this service in the world with almost 1 billion cell phones.
In the U.S., the company has carved out a solid niche in the growing $1B plus annual residuals space for credit card usage by providing a silver bullet solution including their own gateway that merchants use to connect with large payment processors. Calpian is providing its merchant services through its wholly owned subsidiary, Calpian Commerce continues to sign merchants to card processing contracts, while Calpian itself continues acquiring additional recurring monthly cash flows from the over 10,000 smaller Independent Sales Organizations (dealers) throughout the U.S. The management team has been together for decades refining this business model through over 200 acquisitions in their careers before making it public in 2010. The team is experienced and well known throughout the industry as the go-to guys for making a deal.
In India, with Calpian acquiring an interest in March 2012 in Digital Payments Processing Limited (DPPL), which delivers the payment processing service for the Money on Mobile solution, it has taken off with incredible force, signing an incredible 53 million consumers though its vast network of 143,000 retailers (and growing at least 3,000 per month) so far. This astonishing growth is thanks in large part to how elegantly the company's mobile payment application, which is already seen as the “PayPal” of India, satisfies all the needs of the average Indian consumer, distributor, and retailer alike. The vast swathes of under-banked and unbanked consumers in India represent the tip of a much larger global iceberg for this solution as well, a solution whose backbone is simple SMS text protocol, and which bundles all the right incentives together for emerging markets. MoM is the runaway leader at this time in India pacing at 20 times larger than its nearest competitor.

Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (MEEC)
Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (MEEC) develops and delivers patented, cost-effective mercury capture systems and technologies to power plants and other coal-burning units in the United States and Canada. As a result of the company’s innovative, patented mercury removal technologies, customers can attain compliance with new, highly restrictive government emissions regulations, in the most effective and economical manner.
In 2011, the EPA issued its Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) for power plants. The new rule is intended to reduce air emissions of heavy metals, including mercury (Hg), from all major U.S. power plants. It is projected that the total national cost of this mandate will reach $9.6 billion annually. More than a dozen states have established even more stringent emission limits, further increasing demand for energy emission control technology.
Leveraging its partnership with University of North Dakota’s Energy & Environment Research Center (EERC), the premier center of mercury control research, Midwest Energy Emissions is well positioned to meet and exceed new government regulations with its exclusive patent rights to EERC’s mercury control technology. The company’s customer-centric mercury capture solutions use a combination of materials tailored specifically to customers’ coal-fired units.
Years of research and testing with the EERC has enabled Midwest Energy to deliver one of the most effective low-cost and high-capture solutions possible – typically without impacting operations or requiring extensive capital equipment changes. The total mercury solution offered by Midwest Energy Emissions is uniquely formulated to optimize mercury capture at any coal-fired unit.
