Ever wonder what company made the keypad on your mobile phone light up or who’s behind that really cool apparel with reflective properties? Oryon Technologies (OTCQB: ORYN) is the answer to those riddles. One of Texas-based Oryon Technologies early successes in commercializing its Intellectual Property (IP) led to the backlighting of the keypad light source in over 125 million Motorola RAZR cell phones. That alone would be a feather in the cap of most small companies, but the case of Oryon starts, not ends, there.
The Company’s ELastoLite was used in a Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS) film, “Tron Legacy” and for some costumes in the television series “Terra Nova. " That same technology has been used on Nike (NYSE: NKE) athletic apparel. Undeniably, that’s an impressive duo of customers… deep-pocketed customers that could help Oryon Technologies go from unknown micro-cap to the next hot small-cap and well beyond.
In addition to Nike and Walt Disney, Oryon said it’s working with several Fortune 500 specialty apparel, sporting goods and safety product companies to possibly see its lighting technology used in the production of scores of new, innovative products.
Intellectual Property Adds Up to Big Bucks
What’s even more impressive than having supplied its technology to Disney and Nike is Oryon’s war chest of patents. The Company’s technologies are protected by over 55 patents issued or pending worldwide. For those not in the know about patents in the technology universe, they’re a really big deal and exceptionally valuable.
Earlier this year, Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) paid over $1 billion for several patents belonging to AOL (NYSE: AOL). Microsoft proceeded to sell some of those patents to Facebook for $550 million. As you probably heard, Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) and Oracle (Nasdaq: ORCL) are currently locked in a patent battle that could eventually cost one of the companies a nine- or 10-figure settlement.
Disruptive Technology Drives Value
Simply put, Oryon has what some would describe as a “disruptive technology" with numerous potential end markets. ELastoLite® broke through restrictive barriers that limited the growth of electroluminescent technology. So, not only does that mean the product itself is highly valuable, but the patents are too. And that leads to a compelling investment opportunity that is currently vastly undervalued relative to the sum of its parts.
A Real Game Changer
Oryon’s patented technology is trademarked as ELastoLite®; a thin, flexible, crushable, water resistant lighting system able to be incorporated into new and far-reaching product applications across multiple markets. The Company believes ELastoLite® is a game-changing technology that will open up new markets and enable the evolution of new products which would otherwise be unavailable.
Closing Comments and Portfolio Recommendation
Since the dawn of time, man has craved light, which now comes in different forms and fashions. This profitable light comes courtesy of Oryon Technologies (ORYN), the next bright addition to your microcap portfolio. You might consider loading up on this one while it’s trading under a buck because I don’t think it will be there for long.
