basic info on greenchip; looks good business idea, at least!


Greenchip

Greenchip's current business model involves seeking to secure an option, from
owners of intellectual property, over newly developed products, ideas and
technologies ('Products') in respect of the exclusive European rights to
exploit and commercialise those Products. The companies targeted by Greenchip
are typically already established in the USA, Canada, Australia, Asia and the
Pacific region and own the rights to the Products. Options typically have a
three-month duration and Greenchip does not intend to pay for the option. The
intention is to convert the option agreement into an exclusive license
agreement.

Greenchip's principal source of license opportunities is through a referral
agreement with Oceanic Management, a North American-based investment and
technology ventures company, through which license opportunities are received.
Greenchip focuses on Products that have undergone development and are being,
or are about to be, commercially exploited. Greenchip seeks to avoid
partnering with start up companies and preferably targets companies already
quoted on an overseas stock exchange.

Typically the owner of the Products will grant an exclusive license to a
company ('the Licensee Company'), which initially is owned equally by
Greenchip and the licensor. Subsequently, as the European business is
developed and finance is raised the shareholdings of the two parties will
usually be diluted. It is intended that, where appropriate, shareholders in
Greenchip will have an opportunity to apply for any IPO offering for each
Licensee Company.

Greenchip's plan is, in due course, to realise all or part of its shareholding
in each Licensee Company.

Currently, Greenchip has established a portfolio of Licensee companies with
which it is working and in which it has invested to exploit the Products,
including the following:



Environmental Technology Division

Genesis Microbial Limited. It is intended that Genesis Microbial Limited will
have exclusive rights to exploit within Europe two bio-microbial products the
first of which digests fat and grease and is used primarily in the catering
trade to keep drains clear. The second product is anticipated to be used
mainly in pest control to prevent insect larvae from developing.



Life Science & Medicine Division

Perioplus Europe Limited. It is intended that Perioplus Europe Limited will
have exclusive rights to exploit within Europe an anti-bacterial chlorhexidine
mouthwash. The mouthwash, which does not have harmful additivies, is currently
in advanced laboratory testing with a major pharmaceutical and consumer
healthcare multinational.

Infantcare (UK) Limited. Infantcare has exclusive European rights to develop
and exploit a patented and professionally endorsed electrically operated crib
called 'The Babysleeper' which oscillates and calms babies, thus promoting
sleep.



Internet Division

Ecomextra plc. Ecomextra plc is an OFEX quoted provider of packaged e-commerce
solutions to SME's.



Word of Mail Limited - It is intended that Word of Mail Limited will hold a
license under which it may exploit a permission based multi-level viral
marketing software package within the UK.

Whats-online Limited - It is intended that Whats-online Limited will have a
license to exploit a web based aggregate affiliate marketing program within
the European Union.

Biztalk Limited - Biztalk is a business information portal for SME's. This US
website currently has over 100,000 registered members. It is intended that
Biztalk Limited will have an exclusive license to develop and exploit a
similar website in the European Union.

Global Leading Edge Technologies Europe Limited ('GLETE')- It is intended that
GLETE will have exclusive rights to develop and exploit, within Europe, a fax
product that incorporates technology from Hewlett Packard, Symantec and 3Com
that enables organisations to send long distance faxes via the internet and
benefit from the reduced telecommunications rates available using this medium.

In addition, Greenchip holds 19.1 % of the issued share capital of Great
Panther Inc. This company intends to secure license rights to technologies for
exploitation in Asia Pacific.

Its got me stumped why on earth would anyone want to sell @ 1p when the bid price is 2.5p. I can only assume that it has something to do with the cancelation of the old shares and then the issueing of the enlarged share capital.

Just to change the subject completely and apologies if this is the wrong place but why the big drop in GRE's price today. Anyone have any ideas?

Reasons for Listing

The Directors believe that Admission will enhance the standing of the Company, and will facilitate the expansion of the Company, by the acquisition of other companies or intellectual property rights for the issue of new shares rather than cash.

Commenting on the Company's application for admission to AIM, Gavin Simonds, Greenchip's Chairman said:

"Greenchip's admission to AIM is an important step in the Company's development. Currently we are seeing rapid changes, including corporate consolidation, within the markets in which we have an interest. Greenchip's ability to participate in these exciting developments will, I believe, be enhanced by its listing on AIM."

And major shareholders are interesting - from article in the Guardian ages ago:

Focus: Greenchip

E-finance: special report Greenchip

Tuesday February 15, 2000

Another day, and another technology investment firm signals its intention to come to market. The torrent of money pouring into the net sector shows little sign of abating. It seems everyone is involved in the new gold rush. Entrepreneurs, bankers, management consultants, teenagers, celebrities - they are all having a go. Trying to sort the wheat from the chaff is a thankless task.

Yesterday's new arrival was Greenchip, an Ofex-quoted vehicle which said it is looking for an Aim listing. It claims its "mission" is to secure marketing , manufacturing and other licence rights in technologies owned and developed outside Europe and introduce them to the continent. The focus is on the internet and life sciences.

Deal flow is maintained through a strategic alliance with Oceanic Management, a north American technology ventures company.

The Greenchip model is a slightly different one from the traditional investment and incubator offerings and, after taking a glance at the shareholder list, appears a little more fruity than many others.

Almost inevitably Luke Johnson, surely one of the most prolific investors in small internet investment companies, features prominently. Mr Johnson, on behalf of his Intrinsic Value listed investment trust and on his own account, owns around 10%.

John Gunn, former director of British & Commonwealth, holds a further 9%. Arlington Group, another Ofex-listed investment group which counts Kerry Packer's family business, JellyWorks' David Rowland and Mr Johnson among its investors, holds a further 14%.

Gavin Simonds, a former director of UBS and Kleinwort Benson, is to be chairman. Having floated British Steel and Abbey National his role will be to add investment banking expertise.

Shareholders are bullish, management confident and the move away from the lightly regulated Ofex market likely to improve Greenchip's profile. But whether they can deliver value investments in such a volatile area is still unclear.

The bottom appears to have dropped out of this share and I'm not really sure why.Anyone shed any light on this and the chances it will bounce back?
