Beacon Equity Research Updates Coverage of Sense Holdings, Restates 12-Month Target Share Price $0.75; Reports Notes Strengthened Patent and License Portfolio in Biometric and Explosive Detection for Homeland Security Markets
Key among those developments is the Company's recent filing of a new explosives detection technology patent based on Micro Electro-Mechanical Sensors (MEMS), which brings Sense's total exclusive worldwide patents and licenses, pending and issued, to 12.
“Terrorism threats involving explosives are not only a concern of those in the U.S., but for virtually every country in the world now. It is very likely that as the technology evolves, handheld explosive detection devices will comprise a large part of this market in the future.”
"In the highly competitive Homeland Security space, we see a depth of patent protection as a key for any company seeking to take a leadership position," the Beacon report update notes.
In addition, Sense also has recently expanded its worldwide licensing and patent agreements with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the report notes. "With that agreement, Sense now owns all worldwide exclusive licenses and patents related to the sale, manufacturing and distribution of this handheld detection system, as well as to all its potential applications for the detection of landmines, unexploded ordnance, chemical warfare agents and narcotics," the update notes. "In addition, the Company has rights to acquire the field of use for all biological warfare agents."
The update, which follows on the heels of a comprehensive, research report issued on Oct. 19, paid for by Sense Holdings, reiterates Beacon's initial long-term projected target share price. "In light of the positive news announcements and promising business prospects since our initial coverage of the Company on October 14, 2005, we reiterate our 12-month price target of $.75 for Sense Holdings, Inc. at this time," the report update notes.
"The potential market for explosive detection units is enormous," said the report update. "Terrorism threats involving explosives are not only a concern of those in the U.S., but for virtually every country in the world now. It is very likely that as the technology evolves, handheld explosive detection devices will comprise a large part of this market in the future."
