AMR technologies (AMR) on toronto

AMR is a rare earth company out of Toronto. Although they are a canadian company AMR primarily opperates in China. AMR is one of the only foreign companies that china has premitted to develop the vast rare earth resource found in china.

There are a few points that stand out to make this company interesting.

- They are proven in the rare earths market. The rare earth market has just come thought a tough time. However AMR was able to survive the lower demand and decreased margines, facotrs that were too much for some competitiors.

- They have developed strong roots in China, and have been there for 10 years. Working in China is not easy, there are many road blocks and everything is covered with red tape, especially for any transnational. AMR had learned over the years to work with the system, and in turn it seems the system is working for them. In the future China will an economic monster, and AMR looks to be positioned well to benefit.

- Nanotechnology, you've all heard of it by now! AMR has been in the nanomaterials sector since the late 90's. It fits in perfectly with the value-added rare earth inductry. Nanomaterials and nanotools will most likly be the first nano sectors to see real gains. All the weird and wonderful IP you've been hearing about has one thing in common: They will all NEED the proper MATERIALS to be built. If you've heard of companies suck as Altair Nanotechnologies or Nanophase, then your on the right track. AMR has been compared to these nano companies.

-When you combine AMR being a solid company, having deep conections to possible the worlds most oppertunistic future economy, and the possiblity of becomming a major nanomaterials supplier, AMR looks very good.

Possibly the reason i like it so much is that nobody really seems to know about them, and if they do, even less people truly understand what it is they actually do. Up untill recently the stock has been trading below net asset value ($2.16), and yesterday there was a major buy (over 3 million shares) at a value of $2.35 a share.

When people find out about AMR and the potential it holds, I believe this one will make some big moves.

I recommend you check this one out. The potential is there!

If anyone has any other comments on AMR (positive or negative) I would like to hear them.

Hope this one is good to everyone!


oh ya..I hold a small position in AMR, I'm looong on this one!

Ten year exclusive agreement to supply Nano Cerium Oxide

TORONTO, Feb. 9 /CNW/ - AMR Technologies Inc. ("AMR") (TSX:AMR) announced today that it has developed a novel form of nanosized Cerium oxide material which has significant implications for use in a major global consumer product. If this product succeeds in the marketplace, AMR estimates that sales of its materials would result in revenues to AMR of approximately US$25m per annum for every 1% worldwide market share penetration by the product. It is still uncertain when the consumer product might be introduced to the market because it continues to be under development and subject to further evaluation by the customer.

AMR has been developing its nanotechnology platform for over five years under the direction of Dr. James L. Woodhead at AMR's Nanotechnology Centre in Abingdon, UK. AMR has applied its technology to meet the performance specifications and requirements stipulated by a customer which holds a major market share in the above-mentioned consumer product. AMR and this customer have entered into a 10-year exclusive agreement to supply nanosized cerium oxide and other related materials required in the production of this consumer product following its commercialization.

AMR's customer holds an extensive portfolio of patents and patent applications on this consumer product. A confidentiality agreement in place between AMR and its customer prevents the Company from disclosing the name of its customer and the nature of the application.

Peter Gundy, AMR's Chairman and CEO stated, "This supply agreement is an example of the significant long term growth potential of our nanotechnology initiative. It clearly demonstrates our capabilities in developing and commercializing nanotechnology products and applications."
