3 July 1967: Krugerrand – Birth of a Gold Icon

3 July 1967: Krugerrand - Birth of a Gold Icon

Johannesburg, South Africa, 30 June 2017: 50 years ago, on 3 July 1967, the first Krugerrand, the famous South African investment coin, was manufactured jointly by the South African Mint and Rand Refinery, thus beginning a unique and very special global success story. The basic premise of the investment coin was to provide private investors with access to gold as an investment product, thus making the precious metal mined in South Africa accessible to everyone.

As a result, the Kruggerand ranks as the world’s most traded gold bullion coin and has come to be one of the world’s favourite investment coins. It is legal tender in South Africa and is valued solely according to the current price of gold. To make it more marketable, the South African coin with its distinctive springbok-motive on its reverse has a 1/12 copper content, making it particularly resistant to scratches or other forms of damage. The Krugerrand contains the exact amount of gold stated on its face value, and the copper is added to the gold.

Richard Collocott, Executive Head Marketing at Rand Refinery, states: „At the beginning, the Krugerrand was only issued in the weight value of one ounce. This soon changed following a sharp increase in demand. Today, these investment coins are also available in fine gold weight values of 1/2 ounce, 1/4 ounce and 1/10 ounce, thus we are offering investors a greater variety of investment opportunities. The huge interest in this coin continues to this day. Since it was first introduced 50 years ago, more than 52 million ounces of the Krugerrand have been sold around the world. In 2016, the Krugerrand was the world“s most popular gold bullion coin.“

Tumi Tsehlo, Managing Director of South African Mint, adds: „50 years ago, no one could ever have envisaged that the Krugerrand would be such a huge worldwide success. To continue this success, we consider it is very important to uphold tradition by retaining the original design and thus its high degree of recognition. However, this does not mean that we turn a blind eye to current developments. These developments include, for example, an increasing relevance of precious metals other than gold in the investment sector.“

That is why, on the 50th anniversary of the Krugerrand, the South African Mint also issued limited edition, collectible versions of the coin in silver and platinum, for the first time. „The limited edition platinum Krugerrand is available in a weight of one ounce, and will be issued in 2017 only,“ Tsehlo explains. On the occasion of such a significant birthday, the range of limited edition gold Krugerrands also features limited editions of 5 ounce, 1/20 ounce, 1/50 ounce coins and an impressive 50 ounce coin as the highlight of the range.

Rand Refinery and the South African Mint produce the bullion Krugerrand in South Africa. Rand Refinery has refined nearly 50,000 tons of gold, around one third of the gold ever produced worldwide. The Rand Refinery was founded in 1920 by the Chamber of Mines in Germiston, South Africa to process raw gold mined around Johannesburg, marketing it around the world. The firm now processes approximately all gold mined in South Africa and a substantial share of gold mined in the rest of Africa. In addition to the world-famous Krugerrand gold coin, the company sells gold ingots ranging from one gramme to one kilogramme in weight. In Europe, the best-known ingots are the „elephant ingots“, bars of fine gold with an elephant motif on the back. The Rand Refinery has been admitted to the London Bullion Market Association, and is also listed for good delivery on the New York Commodities Exchange (COMEX), the Tokyo Commodities Exchange (TOCOM) and the Dubai Good Delivery Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), amongst others.

Franchising for Business Centers

Franchising for Business Centers

De Soet Consulting Business Center headquarter

Franchising has had a bad reputation in the past when it first started, but it has come a long way and is highly recognized now, considering that a lot of companies became successful because they were part of a big franchise system. When people think about franchising they usually think about restaurants or clothing brands, but there are more possibilities.

GMC AG, for example, offers their franchise system. It is a popular system which is based on a great business concept. Rieta de Soet says, franchising opens up a lot of opportunities.

Business Center offer completeley equipped offices and conference rooms, that can be rented for a few days, weeks or even months and years. Business Center are perfect for franchising, because there is a great demand in renting shortterm-offices, rather than committing to one permanent office.

There are a lot of benefits coming from franchising. Franchising is perfect for people who want to pursuit their dream of having their own company. However franchising can minimize the risk of financial bankruptcy, because the new owner gets to work with a proven system, claims Rieta de Soet, CEO of Global Management Consultants AG.


GMC AG mit Hauptsitz in Zug/Schweiz, ist mit zahlreichen Business Centern international in Amerika, Australien, Asien und Europa vertreten. In seinen Business Centern stehen Betriebswirte, Steuerberater, Marketing- und Unternehmensberater den Kunden zur Verfügung, die seit über 20 Jahren in den Bereichen Business Center, Firmengründung und Managementberatung tätig sind.

perma FLEX – The All-in-one Lubrication System in Two Compact Sizes

perma FLEX - The All-in-one Lubrication System in Two Compact Sizes

perma FLEX on a fan

Euerdorf, Germany – The basic requirement for a long bearing / chain service life is optimum lubrication. Incorrect lubrication results in damages and equipment breakdown. The new all-in-one lubrication system perma FLEX from perma-tec provides reliable 24 hour, year round lubrication for all types of industries and applications.

Immediately ready to use

perma FLEX requires no assembly or special tools. Just unpack, turn the rotary switch to the desired discharge period and screw the system into your lubrication point. The discharge period (in monthly steps of 1 to 12 months) can be changed anytime after activation and the two sizes are perfect for small or tight spaces (size 125 cm³ = 117 mm high / size 60 cm³ = 85 mm high). During longer machine downtimes, perma FLEX can be completely turned off. This flexibility makes perma FLEX ideal for different lubrication point requirements.
perma FLEX makes preventive maintenance practices easier and safer. Longer maintenance intervals and remote mounting significantly reduce the interface between maintenance staff and dangerous operating equipment. This increases workplace safety and is more cost effective.

Tried, tested, and proven

The system was successfully tested in the market. The practical experience shows that perma FLEX can be used on all applications that require reliable and optimum relubrication, e.g. on bearings, chains, sliding guides, open gears, gear racks, shaft seals and more. The system is extremely flexible and can even be mounted up-side-down. It performs reliably in extremely moist and dirty areas (protection class IP 68) and in hot and cold environments (-20 °C to +60 °C).

Service included

To ensure that perma FLEX matches all requirements of your lubrication point, perma-tec offers the largest range of lubricants and accessories in the market of automatic lubrication systems. If you have any questions, our team of application engineers will be glad to help. If requested, our perma SERVICE team will come to your premises.

U.S. CET Corporation – What is a Registered Agent?

U.S. CET Corporation - What is a Registered Agent?

A registered agent, also known as a resident agent or statutory agent, in United States business law, is a business or
individual designated to receive service of process (SOP) when a business entity is a party in a legal action such as a
lawsuit or summons. The registered agent“s address may also be where the state will send the paperwork for the yearly
renewal of the business entity“s charter. The registered agent for a business entity may be an individual member of the
company, or (more often) a third party, such as the organization“s lawyer or a service company. Failure to properly
maintain a registered agent can affect a company negatively.

The Importance of a Registered Agent

Imagine the consequences of not having a registered agent. How do you give notice to something that only exists on a
piece of paper? On a more practical level, how does a state (i.e. Delaware) give notice to a corporation who is merely
registered in that state but has all of its business activity done outside the state? The registered agent eliminates these
concerns. Any paperwork and declarations from the state, such as annual report and franchise tax forms, is sent directly
to the registered agent. Any service of process for any lawsuit or other legal action is also sent to the registered agent.

As a benefit to the corporation or LLC, the registered agent acts as the administrative link with the state. The registered
agent is required to forward all documents and notices to the corporation and often provides a service to report whether
or not the corporation or LLC is in „Good Standing“ with the state. With a corporation potentially conducting business in
many different states, the corporation may have a hard time keeping track of legislative changes and report due dates,
and so the registered agent becomes a crucial component in navigating through these administrative hurdles.

Safe medications thanks to new test procedures

High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF) invests in Reutlingen-based SIGNATOPE GmbH

Safe medications thanks to new test procedures

Founder-team of SIGNATOPE: Thomas Joos, Oliver Pötz, Hannes Planatscher (Source: Signatope GmbH)

(Stuttgart/Tübingen/Bonn) – High-Tech Gründerfonds is investing EUR 600,000 in Reutlingen-based SIGNATOPE GmbH. SIGNATOPE will use the funds to advance the development of its unique biomarker assay system, that has been established to support pharmaceutical research. The technology is based on special antibodies and allows the early detection of possible side effects during the drug development process. Thereby, the need for animal testing will be reduced while the drug becomes safer and the process more cost-efficient. SIGNATOPE has already secured a number of renowned companies as clients of the new technique.

Before new drugs get approval they are subjected to comprehensive tests in cell culture and animal models to assess their efficacy and toxicity. The biomarker assays developed by SIGNATOPE are able to detect organ damage and drug side effects. As biomarkers might differ between humans and animal models, to date a multitude of tests have been applied for this analysis. During phase I of the GO-Bio program, which is being funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the team at the NMI Natural and Medical Sciences Institute at the University of Tübingen developed a novel technique, which quantifies relevant biomarkers not only in humans but also across a wide variety of species. „Our technique delivers quantitatively comparable data, regardless of the selected test model. We are able to detect even the tiniest amount of biomarkers in urine and blood samples. This helps to cut down significantly on time and costs with respect to drug development,“ explains Oliver Pötz, CEO at SIGNATOPE.

As a major German seed stage investor, HTGF sees huge potential in the new approach devised by the Reutlingen researchers. „The team really impressed us with this pioneering technology. In comparison to traditional histopathological techniques involving tissue sections, non-invasive biomarker assays are becoming increasingly relevant in the development of new drugs,“ explains Dr. Lena Krzyzak, Investment Manager at HTGF.

SIGNATOPE was founded by scientists Hannes Planatscher, Thomas Joos, Octavian Schatz and Oliver Pötz, together with the NMI. „As a business-minded incubator, the NMI is the nucleus behind many successful start-ups,“ explains Dr. Klaus Eichenberg, Managing Director of BioRegio STERN Management GmbH. „It is a good example of how to fuse innovative research with successful business in the region.“

About BioRegio STERN Management GmbH:
BioRegio STERN Management GmbH is a skill-sharing network, providing a help and ad-vice centre for founders of new businesses, entrepreneurs and researchers in the life sciences sector in the cities of Stuttgart, Tübingen, Esslingen and Reutlingen and the Stuttgart and Neckar-Alb regions.

Creditunion-Domains – the Domains of Trust

Creditunion-Domains - the Domains of Trust

Creditunions worldwide have a better image than other banks (Source: dimitrisvetsikas)

The Sunrise Period of the Creditunion-Domains lasts till 3rd June 2017. Interested parties for the Sunrise Period of Creditunion-Domains have to register at the trademark clearinghouse.

Why Creditunion-Domains? The Creditunion-Domains are the trustworthy domains which can be registered by creditunions only.

The mission of Creditunion-Domains is „to provide a trusted, hierarchical, and intuitive namespace for entities that have a meaningful nexus with the credit union sector. Such entities include but are not limited to, credit unions, credit union trade associations and leagues, credit union service organizations, regulatory bodies, and entities offering products and services aimed primarily at credit unions.“

The Creditunion-Domains are „promoting a safe eco-system for the credit union sector by providing best in class safeguards that will evolve over time, continuing to incorporate additional security and other safeguards as necessary.“

The relationship between better ranking and the new top-level domains was proved by a study of Searchmetrics for Berlin-domains. Websites with Berlin-Domains frequently place better than websites with .de domains and .com domains in regional searches with Google. The result of the study by Searchmetrics can be summarized as follows:

„42% of searches show that .berlin domains rank better locally .“

A study of Total Websites in Houston shows that the results by Searchmetrics can be generalized to all new top level domains, including the Creditunion-Domains: It was proved that Google uses the domain endings of the New Top Level Domains as a key element for the assessment of domains. Total Websites draws as a conclusion:

„It is clear that the new top-level domains improve the ranking in search engines.“

Customers, who are interested at the Creditunion-Domains, are also interested in many cases at the Bank-Domains.
