Acumen Research and Consulting, Recently Published Report On “Phosphate Rock Market Size, Share, Trends, Scope, Growth Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2026”

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global phosphate rock market size is estimated to grow at CAGR above 6.8 % over the forecast time frame and reach the market value around US$ 38 billion by 2026.

The economy is mainly powered by the growing use of fertilizers for plant growth in the agricultural industry. Phosphate rock is used as phosphorus-based fertilizers in agriculture. In order to provide soil nutrients necessary for good crop development, fertilizers are dumped on agrarian land and arable land. The increasing world population has enabled fertilizer use to boost plant manufacturing effectiveness in order to deliver adequate food goods. This will probably boost the use of the item over the next few years.

Changes in customer food preferences, such as increased nutrition and meat intake, are probable to boost demand for phosphate rock. In the livestock feed sector, it is used as an ingredient in manufactured meat and as a feed phosphate. Feed phosphates provide good pets with a contribution to improving digestion and animal bone endurance.

Phosphorous is used in packaged food and drinks as a preservative. The demand for packaged foods is probable to be driven by raising disposable revenue and expanding working population. Due to their hectic daily timetable, consumers opt for packaged food & drinks, such as yogurt, buttermilk and salad. This will boost the use of the item during the prediction era.

The purchase is a significant approach for enhancing their technological capacities, extending their companies globally and broadening brand portfolios, among significant industry participants like Itafos, Nutrien Ltd. and The Mosaic Company. For example, in August 2018 The Mosaic Company bought Vale Fertilizantes, a Brazilian fertilizer company, for 2.5 billion USD in order to improve its business and increase its presence in Brazilian agriculture.

All issued and exceptional joint stocks of GB Minerals Ltd., a mining, exploration and growth business, was purchased by Itafos in February 2018. Itafos holds an investment of 31.3% in GB Minerals Ltd., which makes it an indirect subsidiary wholly owned by the former. Itafos’ own Farim Phosphate Project, earlier held by GB Minerals, was also allowed to acquire the product.

Key Findings

  • The implementation segment of fertilizers is expected to record a quantity CAGR of more than 5% over the prediction era. 
  • The North American phosphate stone industry is anticipated to advance in quantity at a small CAGR of around 3 percent between 2019 and 2026 due to increased meat consumption.

The Middle East and Africa will receive a 4.0% CAGR of income from the region’s elevated production of phosphate fertilizers. 

Key players adopt policies such as purchases to improve their manufacturing capacity and meet the increasing requirement for phosphate rock.

Key Players & Strategies

The global market is highly competitive in nature owing to the presence of key players such as Phosphate Resources Ltd.; Itafos; GUIZHOU CHANHEN CHEMICAL CORPORATION; The Mosiac Company; OCP; Misr Phosphate; Nutrien Ltd.; Hubei Xingfa Chemicals Group Co., Ltd.; PhosAgro, Fertoz; Yunnan Phosphate Haikou Co., Ltd.; and J R Simplot.

Mergers & purchases are the main business participants’ policies. For example, in January 2018, Itafos purchased a wholly-owned subsidiary of Conda Phosphate Operations from Agrium Inc. Conda annually generates 540,000 tonnes of phosphate products. The purchase included manufacturing equipment for phosphates and phosphate mineral rights.

BroadVision Announces Third Quarter 2019 Results




Reading Time: 4 minutes

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BroadVision, Inc. (Nasdaq: BVSN), a leading provider of e-business and engagement management solutions, today reported financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2019. This was the third quarter for which BroadVision’s results of operations reported under U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) included the results of operations of its subsidiary, Vmoso, Inc. (“VMSO”), which was consolidated with BroadVision for GAAP purposes through September 29, 2019. BroadVision completed the financing of and transfer of its Vmoso and Clearvale platforms to VMSO in the first quarter of 2019 (collectively, the “VMSO transactions”). On September 30, 2019, BroadVision took actions that resulted in the deconsolidation of VMSO from its consolidated financial statements. As a result, on September 30, 2019, BroadVision determined that the asset group associated with Vmoso and Clearvale products and its MyVmoso Network product development should be considered as discontinued operations.

Revenues from continuing operations for the third quarter were $0.7 million, compared with revenues from continuing operations of $0.7 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019 and $0.7 million for the comparable quarter of 2018. Revenues from discontinued operations for the third quarter were $0.2 million compared with revenues from discontinued operations of $0.2 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019 and $0.2 million for the comparable quarter of 2018.

License revenues from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2019 were $0.3 million, compared with license revenues from continuing operations of $0.3 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019 and $0.3 million for the comparable quarter of 2018. The majority of the third quarter license revenues from continuing operations was generated from the Company’s BroadVision® Business Agility Suite™, Commerce Agility Suite™, and QuickSilver™. Revenues during the quarter were generated from sales to both new and existing customers.

In the third quarter of 2019, BroadVision posted a net loss from continuing operations on a GAAP basis of $0.6 million, or $0.11 per basic and diluted share, as compared with GAAP net loss from continuing operations of $0.1 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, for the second quarter of 2019 and GAAP net loss from continuing operations of $0.5 million, or $0.09 per basic and diluted share, for the comparable quarter of 2018. Net income from discontinued operations of $1.7 million for the third quarter of 2019 included a $2.3 million gain on deconsolidation of VMSO offset by a loss from discontinued operations of approximately $0.6 million. This is compared to a net loss from discontinued operations of $0.8 million for the second quarter of 2019 and $1.3 million for the comparable quarter of 2018.

As of September 30, 2019, the Company had $2.2 million of cash and cash equivalents after deconsolidation of VMSO, compared to a combined balance of $2.6 million as of December 31, 2018, which was prior to the completion of the VMSO transactions.

“As a result of our deconsolidation of VMSO, for the first time this quarter we are presenting separate figures for discontinued operations related to the VMSO products within our reported results. These figures show that VMSO continued to require investment levels expected for a startup through its deconsolidation effective September 30, 2019, while the continuing operations of our core BroadVision business continued to generate revenues. Any future expenses related to product development for VMSO will no longer be consolidated by BroadVision,” said Dr. Pehong Chen, President, CEO and Interim CFO of BroadVision.
