We have an agreement in principle with Abraxas (TrapWire) to provide
"streaming sitreps" to their clients via their desktop/homepage by the end
of July. Their clients include Scotland Yard, #10 Downing, the White
House, and many MNC's. This is big time QSM. This will get us front and
center to corporations and governments to sell IS. Our consideration is
introducing them to companies like Wal Mart, Dell and other Fred cronies.
Fred made the introduction, Patrick figured out the business deal.
We have also expanded our relationship with Deloitte to start providing
"some" of their customers with geopolitical intelligence similar to what
the Eurasia group does with Price Waterhouse. This is in the early stages
but feels good. Again - QSM working here.
We also have a couple of opportunities with MNC - LyondellBasell - out of
their Mexico subsidiary pertaining to Venezuela. One - a $28,000 "easy"
one and another in the hands of Peter to determine the effort and
$$$$$$$$$ from me after getting the info. Also out there with
LyondellBasell is a biggie we priced at $300,000 which is centered around
Fred's cashing in some chits in Mexico. This has nothing to do with time
spent - it's all about introductions to the right people which is VALUE to
LyondellBasell. This is "easy money" and therefore has low probability of
getting done. LyondellBasell is loosing between $1,500,000 and $5,000,000
/ year on the local Mexicans skimming production from one of their plants
in Mexico. I'm not counting on this. The company is taking our proposal
to their Board next week.
One of the things we are getting Nate to do is study other's pricing for
IS. Once we get the dossier we can go head to head (I hope, with Janes
and Oxford Anaylitica's pricing model. THINK BIG: Check out the pricing

Sure, there are differences but not so much in the product as in the
price! It's the packaging. We have the Quality, we need the Status, and
deffiently have the Mystic.
