|Hello everyone and welcome to our new group members,
Medigus (NASDAQ: MDGS) is a technology company focused on partnerships in medical solutions, digital commerce, and electric vehicle markets.
Current price $7.11/share (as of market close 11-18-22)
After closing the Thursday session at $7.03/share, MDGS had a strong opening Friday, trading as high as $7.64. Early trading volume was 28.6K shares which exceeded the daily average volume.
Earlier I mentioned the potential for a lucrative dividend the company had proposed, subject to court approval. Today the company announced it has gotten court approval and intends to proceed with the dividend. MDGS advised that a separate announcement will be made with the exact timing and details of the cash distribution.
I don’t know exactly what the dividend details will be, but here is what I do know. On October 12, 2022, MDGS published the share counts listed below. These figures are pre-reverse split.
The post reverse split total of those share classifications would be 1,976,380. A dividend of $1.6M would yield $.809/share or 11.3% based upon a share price of $7.03. The company press release said the dividend applies to holders of the Company’s ADSs and eligible warrant holders in proportion to their respective holdings. In other words, everyone holding equity.
I’m going to continue watching MDGS. There is so much going on at this company right now and I can’t wait to see how the new developments turn out. One thing seems certain, shareholders will probably benefit.

For our members unfamiliar with MDGS I first want to present the businesses they are invested in and the level of ownership the company holds:

Before I get started about the catalysts pushing up the value of MDGS you need to watch this short video by Charging Robotics, and you will see a big reason why the company is building momentum. You need to watch this video (it’s less than two minutes).
On Monday of this week Charging Robotics, an MDGS wholly owned subsidiary, announced it had filed a patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for its wireless EV charging technology. According to Statista, Electric Vehicles market unit sales are expected to reach 16,206,900 vehicles globally in 2027. Could this technology be worth millions or billions?
This week, Eventer announced revenues for the first nine months of 2022 were $1.99 million, an increase of 69% compared to approx. $1.18 million for the full year of 2021. That news was immediately followed with an announcement that Eventer signed a non-binding letter of intent for a planned securities exchange agreement with AI Conversation Systems Ltd (TASE: AICS). According to the LOI, Eventer will become a wholly owned subsidiary of AI Conversation Systems, and in exchange, Eventer will receive 74.99% of the issued and outstanding share capital of AI Conversation Systems.
Last month, Jeffs’ Brands announced that it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent for the purchase of an Amazon Marketplace brand for $2.5 million in cash. The new brand offers nutritional supplements and an estimated $2.7M in 2022 revenues. Those revenues would be added to the $7M (ttm) annual revenues Jeff Brands already has.
There is a lot going on at MDGS that could serve as a near-term catalyst for those riding the momentum. It’s important to note that a swing just to the company’s book value represents an upside of 385%.
