The Coretec Group Releases May 2023 Shareholder Call Transcript and Webcast Recording

The Company provided updates on its Endurion battery program, discussed the importance of its latest provisional patent, and outlined goals for the remainder of 2023

ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Coretec Group (OTCQB: CRTG), developers of silicon anode active materials for lithium-ion batteries and cyclohexasilane (CHS) for electric vehicles (EVs), cleantech, and emerging tech applications, today released the transcript and webcast recording from its May 18, 2023 shareholder update on the Company’s Investor Relations Website.

During the call, The Coretec Group’s Chief Executive Officer, Matt Kappers, Chief Technology Officer, Ramez Elgammal, Ph.D., and VP of Partnerships and Innovation, Michelle Tokarz, Ph.D., shared its strong results from cycling tests on its modified silicon battery material. These tests proved three important factors:

  • Coretec’s team successfully bonded a polymer to the silicon nanoparticles.
  • The Endurion engineered solid electrolyte interface layer improves rate capability.
  • The cycling stability of Endurion’s silicon material outperformed unmodified materials.

The Company also discussed the importance of its latest provisional patent. The patent identifies three distinct, novel methodologies for minimizing pulverization and increasing the rate capability by creating an artificial solid electrolyte interface. This innovation is capable of extending the life and increasing the capabilities of silicon-based anodes for lithium-ion batteries, with an emphasis on scalability. The development marks a major breakthrough for the Company’s Endurion battery program focused on EV batteries that charge faster and last longer than the current industry standard.

The Company also provided a roadmap for the rest of the year, and an update on its current and prospective partnerships. It is developing relationships with potential Endurion end-users such as automakers and battery companies as well as key suppliers and testing companies.

The call concluded with Company leadership answering questions from the investor community. Kappers urged all who are interested in receiving the latest Company updates to sign up for notifications on its Investor Relations Website, follow the Company’s social media channels on Twitter and LinkedIn, and watch its recent informational video that breaks down the Endurion battery program.

New Access Accelerated Global Collective Report Charts Path Forward in Fight Against Noncommunicable Diseases

Access Accelerated and Partners Unveil Findings From Six-Year Report

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND / ACCESSWIRE / May 24, 2023 / Access Accelerated, a pioneering collective of leading biopharmaceutical and life science companies dedicated to confronting the growing global noncommunicable disease (NCD) crisis, announced the release of a six-year report: Key Lessons in Advancing Access to NCD Care: Collaboration, Connectivity, Community.

This milestone report highlights the initiative’s outcomes, impact, and collective learnings between 2017 and 2022 and serves as a retrospective, a showcase for the initiative’s success stories and challenges, and a much-needed vision for the future.

Michael Fredrich, Lead Access to Medicine Non-Communicable Diseases at Bayer Pharmaceuticals and Chair of the Access Accelerated Board, commented, “With the 2030 deadline for the UN Sustainable Development Goals approaching fast, which include Universal Health Coverage, it’s more important than ever that we make the most out of our resources and approach this fight strategically. This report gives us the opportunity to critically evaluate our past and use key learnings for the future. It is essential that we share insights and learn from our collective efforts. Much work lies ahead, but this report serves as a valuable foundation for effectively addressing NCDs.”

This initiative’s impact has already been felt widely. Access Accelerated and its strategic partners – the City Cancer Challenge Foundation, NCD Alliance, PATH, the World Bank and the World Heart Federation – have helped improve access to NCD screening, diagnosis, and treatment around the world, reaching over 700 million people through 54 partner projects in 37 countries and catalyzing $US1.6 billion in investment in 2022 alone. By the end of phase 2 (2020-2022), this number totalled $US3.7 billion. In the same period, Access Accelerated partner projects contributed to policy change in 35 countries and 13 projects were scaled to national level, moving away from pilot phase to locally embedded projects.

Six years since its founding, the initiative has accumulated a wealth of hard-won knowledge and experience. The report highlights those learnings, including the crucial role of open, transparent communication in measuring intangible impact of partnerships, the ways flexible long-term funding can open the way for locally embedded solutions, and why community- and patient-centric approaches are essential to sustainability. By capturing impacts beyond hard numbers, the report demonstrates the importance of local engagement, trust, and social capital in improving NCD outcomes over time.

According to Dr. Juan Pablo Uribe, World Bank’s Global Director for Health, Nutrition & Population and Director of the Global Financing Facility, the report demonstrates the importance of rigorous monitoring and reporting. “Learning from our successes and challenges is absolutely necessary if we are going to shape more efficient and effective initiatives that can respond to the growing NCD burden on countries around the world. That’s why we’re excited to have the insights offered by this report to inform future initiatives and are grateful to the partnership with Access Accelerated which has led to meaningful action in creating sustainable change.”
