Small Defense Contractor Plans and Projections for 2021 (ADFS:OTC)

December 06, 2020; 10:00am

American Defense Systems Inc. (OTC:ADFS), a small armor-making defense contractor since 2002, released its projections for 2021. (Find a complete version of the report at http://www.adfsnews.com or http://www.adfsinc.com )

The report read, in part, that “…the Corporation shall continue to operate in four market segments: ‘Crisis & Disaster Preparation & Aid’; ‘Strategic Investments’; ‘Real Estate Holding’; and ‘Maritime Support Services’…

“Planned Leases & Purchases: Our current commitments for the next year are to: (a) lease pre-existing warehouses with a budget ceiling of $28,800 per annum, and projected gross income of at least $48,000 per annum; (b) purchase approximately 600 acres of land with a budget ceiling of $12,500,00, and a projected gross income of $1,803,000 per annum; (c) purchase approximately 24 acres of land with a budget ceiling of $13,000,000 for the land, and $96,000,000 for construction, with a projected gross income of $13.5 million from the land sales, and $132 million from home sales; and (d) lease maritime facilities, paying rents from $12,000 to $100,000 per annum, with a renovation budget of $7 million; and a projected gross income of at least $750,000 per annum after completion of renovation…

“Projected Assets, Liabilities & Revenue: If the preceding targets are met for the Corporation, by the end of the year 2021, we project: (a) total debt, including mortgages, should be less than $130 million; (b) total real estate portfolio should be valued at no less than $170 million; (c) gross revenue for the year should be a minimum of approximately $9.1 million; all subject to unforeseeable market changes or events.
CEO, Gary Sidorsky stated that “the Corporation now needs to focus on achieving the following: consolidate and verify shareholder listings; produce an updated audited financial report; secure partnerships to further our market penetration strategies; secure real estate leases, purchases, and subleases to ensure the Corporation has predictable, if not guaranteed, cashflow; fund the Capital Reserve and Brokerage Accounts to improve the liquidity of the Corporation; increase our asset-base to improve the net-worth and valuations of the Corporation; and make the Corporation more attractive to long-term investors.”

Mr. Sidorsky also noted that “small public companies, like ADFS, typically use stock buyback programs for company consolidation, equity value increase, and to look more financially attractive… There’s no doubt that if we initiated a ‘Stock Buyback Program’ under our Strategic Investments Operation, it would positively impact the Corporation’s consolidation, undervaluation, and key financial ratios; as long as we do not finance the Program with interest bearing debt, which can strain cash flow. In such a case we could continue buying back for as long as ADFS’ net income or market share continues expanding.”

The Treasurer, Osita Iroku has also added an announcement of his retirement from the company, saying, “We achieved all we set out to achieve this year, and now it’s time to hand over to a new administrative team to take ADFS to the next level.” The company is set to announce the appointment of new executives and officers later this month, although Gary Sidorsky is scheduled to stay on as CEO.

American Defense Systems (OTC:ADFS) Releases Plans and Projections for 2021

American Defense Systems Inc. (OTC:ADFS), a renowned armor-making defense contractor since 2002, released its business plan and projections for fiscal year 2021.

The report read, in part, that “…during the course of the current fiscal year 2020, the Corporation completed its revival with the State of Delaware; completed the filing of tax returns up to the current fiscal year; established new bank accounts; reactivated our institutional credit history; established a brokerage account; and submitted paperwork for updating of its information with the OTC board…

“The Corporation shall operate in four market segments: ‘Crisis & Disaster Preparation & Aid’; ‘Strategic Investments’; ‘Real Estate Holding’; and ‘Maritime Support Services’…

“Planned Leases & Purchases: Our current commitments for the next year are to: (a) lease pre-existing warehouses with a current budget ceiling of $28,800 per annum, and a respective projected gross income of at least $48,000 per annum; (b) purchase approximately 600 acres of land with a current budget ceiling of $12,500,00, using commercial mortgages, and a respective projected gross income of at least $1,803,000 per annum; (c) purchase approximately 24 acres of land with a current budget ceiling of $13,000,000 for the land, and $96,000,000 for construction, using a commercial mortgage; with a respective projected gross income of at least $13.5 million from the land sales, and $132 million from home sales; and (d) lease maritime facilities, paying rents from $12,000 to $100,000 per annum, with a renovation budget of $7 million; and a respective projected gross income of at least $750,000 per annum after completion of renovation…

“Cashflow Projections: Our current targets for the executive and management teams, for the next year are to: (a) secure approximately $128,540,800 in financing, primarily through private loans and commercial debt in the form of approved mortgages; (b) secure the two respective commercial property leases with a maximum expense of $40,000 for the year; (c) purchase the two respective development properties for a maximum total of $25.5 million; (d) receive a minimum of $1,851,000 in commercial rents; (e) begin $7 million in renovations and $96 million in new constructions; and (f) execute contracts, and receive a minimum of 10% deposits for the pre-sale of at least 37 housing units for a minimum contract total of at least $71.78 million…

“Projected Assets, Liabilities & Revenue: If the preceding targets are met for the Corporation, by the end of the year 2021, we project: (a) total debt, including mortgages, should be less than $130 million; (b) total real estate portfolio should be valued at no less than $170 million; (c) gross revenue for the year should be a minimum of approximately $9.1 million; all subject to unforeseeable market changes or events.
“OER & NOI Targets: (a) In consideration of the management’s recommendations, the Corporation shall target an operating expense ratio of no more than 80% for the year 2021; (b) use the projected 80% OER in our forecasts, to remain conservative; (c) which means, if the Corporation targets a minimum gross revenue of $9.1 million for year 2021, the management will target a net operating income of approximately $1.82 million for year 2021.

ADFS CEO, Gary Sidorsky stated that additional information on the value of the investments, the respective commercial mortgages, and projected returns will be available after updated inspections, assessments, and appraisals of the targeted real estate investments. According to the CEO, “the Corporation now needs to focus on achieving the following: consolidate and verify shareholder listings; produce an updated audited financial report; secure partnerships to further our market penetration strategies; secure real estate leases, purchases, and subleases to ensure the Corporation has predictable cashflow; fund the Capital Reserve and Brokerage Accounts to improve the liquidity of the Corporation; increase our asset-base to improve the net-worth and valuations of the Corporation; and make the Corporation more attractive to long-term investors.”

In specific reference to how ADFS can achieve its fundraising and liquidity goals without diluting shareholder equity, Mr. Sidorsky noted that “when a stock is dramatically undervalued, the issuing company can repurchase some of its shares at this reduced price and then re-issue them once the market has corrected, thereby increasing its equity capital without issuing any additional shares or further diluting company ownership. So, small public companies, like ours, typically use stock buyback programs for company consolidation, equity value increase, and to look more financially attractive.”

“There’s no doubt that if we initiated a ‘Stock Buyback Program’ under our Strategic Investments Operation, it would positively impact the Corporation’s consolidation, undervaluation, and key financial ratios; as long as we do not finance the Program with interest bearing debt, which can strain cash flow. In such a case we could continue buying back for as long as ADFS’ net income or market share continues expanding.”
The Treasurer, Osita Iroku has also added an announcement of his retirement from the company, saying, “We achieved all we set out to achieve this year, and now it’s time to hand over to a new administrative team to take ADFS to the next level.” The company is set to announce the appointment of new executives and officers later this month, although Gary Sidorsky is scheduled to stay on as CEO.

These forward-looking statements are based on management’s current expectations, and due to certain risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from those projected.

AMERICAN DEFENSE SYSTEMS (OTC:ADFS) RELEASES GLOBAL MARKET ASSESSMENT

A ‘Global Market Assessment for 2020 to 2024’ Report is Guiding ADFS’ New Business Planning


American Defense Systems Inc. (OTC:ADFS) released to the public today a report entitled “American Defense Systems: Global Market Assessment for 2020 to 2024”, which the company states is guiding their business planning for the next few years. A full copy of the report can be downloaded at http://www.adfsinc.com or at http://www.adfsnews.com.

Some excerpts from the report are as follows:

“Planning A War Against Nature: Daily disruptions to our economy, society, and international relations are compelling industries to establish new assessments for a post-COVID-19 recovery. The pandemic, protests [and] global military challenges have created a perfect storm of uncertainty [which] has allowed these crises to linger and merge. As the situation drags, corporations planning supplies and distribution across the American continent must ascertain the potential lifespan of the current crisis before any reliable business planning can be finalized.

…We discuss ‘being able to adapt quickly’ because a significant portion of the population are still not convinced of how serious this corona virus pandemic is. On the other hand, enough of us agree that the best business plan for today is one that has honest clarity about both the present and what comes next.

… The virus and the violence are not so much the root of the problem, as our inability to work together to tackle them. This divide will probably prolong the lifespan of the economic crisis until another wave of disaster arrives to further the damage. A smart gambler, therefore, would bet that the current instability in the global economy will last for years.

…The impact of the pandemic and protests so far, is that traditional strengths are losing ground to challenges that are faster, bolder, or more flexible. Damage to the world’s major economies is thus four times worse than the 2009 global financial crisis. The United Nations has projected that up to 265 million people could face starvation by the end of the year because of the impact of Covid-19 alone.

…Some economists are forecasting a strong rebound within months, with activity surging right back to where it was before COVID-19. This optimism ignores the inescapable effects of the ‘velocity of money’ which dictate that with consumer purchases at all-time lows, it will take some time to catalyze that velocity of spending back to pre-COVID-19 levels. The more conservative bet is that the pain will extend for two to three years. This is mostly because people are still frightened, Americans are still dying, and it is becoming evident that the next phase of the coronavirus pandemic is already upon us. Ending the pandemic is the only way to restore the country’s wealth, health, and economic strength. But in the current political environment, supercharged by an election year, it is unlikely a consensus can be formed around any of the competing strategies to achieve that goal.

…All of this is occurring while the world is waking up to the fact that at the end of the day each country can only depend on what they already have secured within their own borders. This will lead to an increase in the building of storage facilities, to enhance food and pharmaceutical security. Both WHO and the World Bank are already starting to fund such initiatives. Other natural and man-made disasters will no doubt have a cumulative negative impact on global trade and the regional integration.

…Reinforcing domestic political and capital control are now major national security issues, while healthcare, liberty, and other immediate needs of the common person are not. This is ‘the new normal’.

…Disasters, therefore, like the current global catastrophe, are opportunities to adapt and leap ahead of the competition… As sure as history has taught us that dark ages breed new empires, if the world is decoupling, ADFS should rely on its rich historical experience and track record, and our exclusive access to commercially valuable holistic data, to employ bold long-term strategies and pioneer new post-COVID-19 industries exclusively for the post-COVID-19 era.

Moving forward, it is our resolve that ADFS should limit our markets to: (a) customized disaster relief for wealthy families; (b) government-continuity services; (c) mobile emergency healthcare technologies; (d) emergency warehousing and shelters; and (d) high-technology law enforcement and disaster management equipment and training.”

Certain statements in this report; statements relating to the development, production, production rates, features and timing of existing and future products and technologies; statements regarding market growth and locations, and repair capabilities; statements regarding growth of our business and the means to achieve such growth; statements regarding growing market opportunities for products and the catalysts for that growth; statements regarding product demand, volume, production, delivery, and market share; statements regarding revenue, cash availability and generation, cash flow, gross margin, product pricing, spending, capital expenditure and profitability targets; statements regarding productivity improvements, cost reductions and capacity expansion plans, such as for customer deliveries, logistics and vehicle servicing; and statements regarding our investment in and the impact of changes to our customer delivery infrastructure, are “forward-looking statements” that are subject to risks and uncertainties.

AMERICAN DEFENSE SYSTEMS (OTC:ADFS) BEGINS ‘STRATEGIC INVESTMENTS’ OPERATION

ADFS Strategic Investments will target companies for regional joint ventures

American Defense Systems Inc. (OTC:ADFS) reported today that although it has scaled back its operations of ADFS Real Estate Holdings until early 2021, it has proceeded with the launching of ‘ADFS Strategic Investments.’

The small defense company has reorganized their operations into four divisions, currently referred to as: (1) Crisis & Disaster Prep: to provide training and supplies to law enforcement, rescue, and healthcare professionals; (2) Strategic Investments: to invest and partner with other firms that have the products and services needed for our long term market strategies; (3) Real Estate Holding: Providing mobile medical facilities to disaster prone areas; warehouses for the storage of emergency food and medical supplies; and emergency shelters; and (4) Maritime Support Services: Providing safe harbor, re-supply, maintenance, and repairs for vessels in disaster prone areas.

In particular, ADFS Strategic Investments is preparing for fundraising this quarter to make their initial investments in other companies that have: (1) products or services crucial to the ADFS long term market strategy; (2) undervalued stock price, giving room for immediate positive equity; (3) a low-barrier for entry and influence; (4) pre-existing shareholder confidence in the current executive management team (e.g. a low rate of insider sales or shareholder turnover); and (5) pre-existing major shareholders that ADFS can have cooperative relationships with (e.g. well-known, highly-regulated, institutional investors).

Other than those general characteristics, there are no other specific criteria for how ADFS is selecting their investment targets. The two general guiding principles are simply: to invest in companies that ADFS can establish a good working relationship with; and to do so in a manner that catalyzes capital appreciation on the investment and also on ADFS common stock as well. The industries ADFS focuses on include communications hardware, software, construction, and shipping.

ADFS will release additional information on the nature of the investments, the size of the respective fundraising, and the actual targeted investments, after a valuation of the available shares in the companies currently being audited.

Certain statements in this report; statements relating to the development, production, production rates, features and timing of existing and future products and technologies; statements regarding market growth and locations, and repair capabilities; statements regarding growth of our business and the means to achieve such growth; statements regarding growing market opportunities for products and the catalysts for that growth; statements regarding product demand, volume, production, delivery, and market share; statements regarding revenue, cash availability and generation, cash flow, gross margin, product pricing, spending, capital expenditure and profitability targets; statements regarding productivity improvements, cost reductions and capacity expansion plans, such as for customer deliveries, logistics and vehicle servicing; and statements regarding our investment in and the impact of changes to our customer delivery infrastructure, are “forward-looking statements” that are subject to risks and uncertainties. These forward-looking statements are based on management’s current expectations, and as a result of certain risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from those projected.

AMERICAN DEFENSE SYSTEMS INC. (OTC:ADFS) RESTRATEGIZES ON REAL ESTATE SUBSIDIARY

Postponing Real Estate Acquisitions Until After the Election to Suit Post-COVID Environment


American Defense Systems Inc. (OTC:ADFS) released additional information today regarding the development of their Real Estate Holdings subsidiary, ‘ADFS Real Estate Holdings’.

Founded in 2002 by Anthony J. Piscitelli out of Hicksville, New York, American Defense Systems (ADFS) has a distinguished history in the American defense industry. Renowned for numerous products, including crew protection kits; bullet-proof windows; blast resistant walls; and lightweight police shields, ADSF was also given opportunities to produced windows, hinges, latches, and locks for the Navy; and a live-fire ballistics range for training both soldiers and police officers. They were so popular, in New York especially, that in 2008 ADFS was awarded contracts from the New York Police Department (NYPD) and the Suffolk County Police Department. Under those agreements ADFS designed hardened architecture to protect the NYPD’s Forensic Investigation Division, located in Jamaica, New York as well as the Suffolk County Police Headquarters located in Yaphank, New York.

By the beginning of 2021, however, the company’s Treasurer, Osita Iroku, was pushing the company in a different direction. The Treasurer preferred a fixed-income foundation for the company and urged the board to launch a $300 million real estate portfolio, under the management of a subsidiary company named ‘ADFS Real Estate Holdings’. The portfolio was to include a pre-selection of mixed-use properties, with a historical return rate of around 7% per annum. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic hit their New York City offices hard, and they were forced to shut-down operations since the first week of March, 2021. According to Mr. Iroku, “the pandemic, and how it’s been handled, pretty much brought our real estate pursuits to a halt; and honestly, we’ve been trying to find a way to bounce back since then.”

The company has still reorganized their operations into four divisions, currently being rebranded as: (1) CRISIS & DISASTER PREP: to provide training and supplies to law enforcement, rescue, and healthcare professionals; (2) STRATEGIC INVESTMENTS: to invest and partner with other firms that produce the products and services ADFS will need for our long term market strategies; (3) REAL ESTATE HOLDING: Providing mobile medical care facilities for hurricane prone areas; warehouses for the storage and delivery of emergency food and medical supplies; and emergency shelters. (4) MARITIME SUPPORT SERVICES: Providing facilities needed to protect and maintain vessels stranded in disaster areas.

“At the end of the day, we are still going ahead with the four-lane strategy, we just had to adjust our timing of entry into the real estate market, and the types of properties we are purchasing, to suit the lingering pandemic and growing political divide,” Iroku concluded. “As they say, whoever adapts best to changing conditions, usually comes out ahead.”
