Implant Sciences’ recent additions of Todd Swearingen, appointed General Manager for the Americas, and U. S. Transportation and Security Administration veteran Mo McGowan as an advisor to the Company, should help to star the Company in the right direction. Anything Implant Sciences can do to boost their top line number will only benefit shareholders if they can provide the services needed and not just the title and paychecks.
Swearingen is expected to oversee the federal and state sales channels in the Americas with a focus on the aviation security markets. His number one priority will be leading sales for Implant Sciences’ Quantum Sniffer™ QS-B220 desktop explosives and drugs trace detector which is currently undergoing U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) qualification testing for air cargo screening.
McGowan, retained through a contract with Command Consulting Group, is expected to provide national security expertise in order to advance the Company and its explosives and drugs trace detectors in the U. S. market. His top three priorities: military, homeland defense and security, and federal government security screening.

Bottom Line: This is one of those penny stocks that sign a bunch of people to their executive board and then go quiet for the next 4 months. They are flying way to close to the sun, their PPS ceiling, and have but one way to go, with gravity. IMSC will need to beef up their next few 10-Q’s with higher revenues and lower operating costs before they can consider entering in to territory above $1.15 and remaining there.
