Uncompetitive Pricing Practices of Taiwan INER

1. INER is a government agency. Therefore it enjoys many advantages over private companies when conducting business activities. For example, it does not need to pay various taxes, including income tax (25%) and sales tax (VAT, 5%). These all affect the customer prices.

2. Being a government agency, INER receives huge funding from central government each year. It is very likely that part of the government funding is used to subsidize their business activities, both directly and indirectly. This is a violation of the WTO agreements regarding subsidies.

3. INER does not have a pricing policy based upon cost analysis. It simply surveys the market prices of competitors and undercuts them. One of INER’s major products is Tl-201. They started selling this product in 2003. At that time the market price was around NT$950~1000 per mCi (a radioactivity unit), they undercut the market price by offering NT$900 average per mCi. Since then INER has kept dropping their prices to block out competitions and their price is now around NT$600. This price is even below our acquisition price from Bristol-Myers Squibb.

4. INER is a subsidiary of Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), which regulates radiation safety affairs in Taiwan. GMS’s radiopharmacies, in respect of radiation safety issues, is supervised by AEC. This is an unfair situation as competitors will worry any fierce confrontation with INER will get themselves into trouble with AEC. We do not think under this structure that INER should be engaged in any business activities.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
