ICM

ICM
ICM Inc. is one of the most recognized names in ethanol, and now it wants to carry over its vast service knowledge and experience into biodiesel. About 60 percent of North American ethanol plants employ ICM process technology, says Debbie Harding, ICM’s marketing manager. 

The company already provides behind-the-scenes benefits to biodiesel producers with nearly 50 percent of the market in distillers corn oil (DCO) extraction technology, increasing availability of lower-cost feedstock to biodiesel producers. ICM’s corn oil extraction design employs a horizontal three-phase decanter, or tricanter, design. “We’ve had buyers of distillers corn oil say they prefer to get it from ICM systems because the product is more consistent,” says Brock Beach, ICM’s vice president of sales and marketing. ICM has also helped increase extraction rates. “We started with a base tricanter system,” Beach says. “That recovered 0.5 to 0.6 pounds per bushel. Then we added our Selective Milling Technology that increased recovery by 5 percent. Our Fiber Separation Technology added another 10 percent bump in corn oil. ICM’s Thin Stillage Solid Separation System (TS4) provided another increase. And at the end of the line, we have our gen 1.5 corn fiber to ethanol process. So now, in all, our systems can recover up to 1.2 pounds of DCO per bushel.”

Nothin Honey

Just to let you know I continue to consume oxygen and exhale CO2, I just checked Pacer and SEC and see nothing to report.  I checked DVG in Pacer and he is still in this. 


I drove through downtown Atlanta Tuesday night and that place continues to generate traffic faster than it can lay asphalt.  And it is laying a lot of asphalt.

Back in the Saddle

Here is update on docket. The last two dated the 18th are new.  Still do not understand why DVG was specifically excluded from related Ethanol Company filings in last post.

Docket News?


Here is the newest on the docket.  If you click on it it should get bigger.  

Is there news here?  Not sure.  I am lucky if I stumble on the right questions - no answers here.  Here are 4 questions:  Is it normal for parties to say who is not a part of their party?  Is it common for parties to not file things right the first time?  Is the party that you file an appeal against really called an appellee?  and is that how you spell it?

Four questions and I am only confident the answer to the last three is yes.

I think I will be traveling when the 10-K comes out, so keep on eye on things here.  Every day for six weeks I have been waking to the surf on the big pond - on the west side looking east.  At my age, when the flight is so long you land before you take off sometimes it takes a day (or two) to fully bounce back.

The Big Payout - blast from 2008!

In one of the few times one could have made a KILLING hanging around this company and its sister companies - Kevin Kreisler announced when the stock of Agri fuels was selling around 21 cents a share - that the parent company would purchase it for 50 cents a share on 31 March 2008.  Much to the chagrin of some, it went off without a hitch. (thanks to Nobody for pointing out this history as we look to the future)

"The plan also calls for other GS AgriFuels shareholders to be bought out at 50 cents per share -- more than double Wednesday's closing price of 21 cents per share."  See Here


Here is SkunK back in the day (1 March 2008 - 30 days out)

Overall the market week was spent in a close trading range because it was waiting to see if Mr. Keisler was going (to be able) to go forward with the taking private of GS AgriFuels under the GERS structure ("the event"). At COB Friday GSGF closed at .457 (same as the bid). At first this would seem to indicate no market confidence in the event - but further review indicates that the ask was .49 - that there were no trades for the last 40 minutes and volume was only 7.33K. This large spread indicates that the holders of GSGF are convinced they will get the .50/share buyout by the end of March as planned. It also shows that others are equally convinced it will not happen - since their bids insisted on over a 9% premium to hold GSGF for 30 days (thats 109% annualized return).

I believe the event now must happen. Therefore it will happen. If Greenshift was to reverse course they would have had to do so before COB Friday. In the absence of information contrary to the event - there will be a gradual increase in the price of GERS through the .50 payout to GSGF shareholders.
