Security Matters (SMX) Scores Major Technology Validation; Invisibly Marks And Identifies Twenty-One Tons Of Natural Rubber ($SMX)

Security Matters (SMX) Scores Major Technology Validation; Invisibly Marks And Identifies Twenty-One Tons Of  Natural Rubber ($SMX)

Savvy investors know that share prices are far from perfect representations of a company's intrinsic value and inherent potential. They also know that, in some cases, these imperfections present investment opportunities that are simply too good to ignore. SMX PLC (NASDAQ: SMX; SMXWW) is a case study for both. In fact, at $0.14 yesterday, its roughly $4 million market cap grossly undervalues a game-changing technology that may forever change, for the better, supply chain life cycles, circular economy initiatives, corporate accountability, transparency, and product authenticity. 

At that price, even its recent $5 million deal with R&I Trading of New York doesn't appear to factor into the valuation model of a company shifting its growth pace from hyper-speed to warp. And that's just one deal. SMX has plenty of others, including with some of the world's largest companies, who will likely feel obligated to utilize SMX invisible marking technology to show and prove commitments are met to mine, produce, or provide logistical support in an ethical, compliant, and sustainable manner. 

In other words, as the world shifts to green, clean, and sustainable supply-chain practices, the company's word may no longer be enough to appease environmentalists, clients, and even governments regarding homeland security. That can be a value driver of immense propositions for SMX well beyond what's in play in 2024. 

A Massive Validation Announced On Wednesday

Speaking about 2024, much value-creating news remains under the radar. While the company would appreciate the valuation respect it deserves, from an investor perspective, it's not necessarily bad news. After all, having an opportunity to capitalize on the low share price of a company targeting hundreds of millions in near and long-term revenues doesn't come often. So when it does, consider seizing it. Include SMX in that list. Why?

Because SMX is doing groundbreaking work with some of the world's largest conglomerates. But because they often tout these relationships only through SEC filings or an occasional social media post, investors not following the wires closely could miss news that strengthens the bullish thesis and, as importantly, the evidence for why they should capitalize on a valuation disconnect sooner rather than later. On Wednesday, SMX added more to an already compelling value proposition.

Specifically, SMX announced it successfully completed the invisible marking of twenty-one tons of natural rubber sourced in Latin America. The tree-to-tire program covered the marking at the tree source and followed it through manufacturing and production processes in the region. That was enabled by the SMX marker technology being added to the cup lump harvesting by the farmers before transfer to the manufacturing center where the forty-two tons of latex was converted to twenty-one tons of natural rubber. 

That end product was then transferred to commercial car, truck, and lorry tire manufacturing. Here's the most important thing to know about the process: After evaluating the SMX marker technology on that rubber, results demonstrated 100% success in proving raw material verification, origin authentication, and full traceability regarding supply chain data and manufacturing integrity.

Relationship With Global Rubber Behemoth Continental Rubber

While SMX didn't provide the client's name, it's fair to infer that it was with Continental Rubber, pointing to a March 2023 press release highlighting its relationship with ContiTech, one of Continental's group sectors in Hanover, Germany. Similar to its Wednesday update, SMX said at the time that the teams were able to 100% identify (through blind tests) the 'marked' and 'unmarked' natural rubber in engine mounts supplied by Continental for a global automotive company without affecting the material properties and the product performance. Don't under-appreciate that performance.

SMX delivered the first known product, demonstrating a reliable means of providing total supply chain authentication and traceability from tree to tire. It can be a production game changer not only for the global supply chain but also for the automotive industry in particular. Those results are the third 100% optimal read for SMX, noting that other projects validated natural rubber delivered by SMX for bicycle tires, engine mounts, and internal materials. Its effectiveness goes far beyond rubber.

SMX invisible marker technology works on metals, plastics, oils, fabric, and other raw materials. As important, the mark can't be removed, destroyed, or altered, instead becoming a permanent part of a product's DNA, providing companies throughout the supply chain buying, selling, or mining products the most efficient and reliable means of identifying where products started, where they went, and how they will be reused in their new life cycle. And with blockchain inclusion, that pedigree is only enhanced, not diminished, through those stages, earning the technology the right to be referenced as "The Intelligence of Things." 

That's a fitting description, especially since SMX technology intelligence produces barcodes on steroids. Remember, barcodes are static- and they were still widely adopted and worth billions of dollars in creating efficiencies. However, their benefit is primarily related to product pricing and inventory. SMX changed the landscape. Best described, SMX marker technology is the next-generation barcode and far more beneficial to miners, manufacturers, brands, and logistics providers than those long black lines ever were. Unique to that format, SMX technology comprises a chemical-based, hidden "barcode" system with a "reader" to identify unique codes and create a blockchain record to store, maintain, and protect data ownership. Companies large and small are embracing that value.

Deals With Global Sector-Wide Giants 

That includes food and beverage giant PepsiCo (NYSE: PEP). In March, SMX filed about its excitement to share a pilot program with that company to deter counterfeiting and ensure that product authenticity is complete. Notably, the success of initial tests has moved the program toward finalizing an agreement to scale the technology across their operations and provide PEP accurate identification of marked PepsiCo packaging to validate supply chain transparency and safeguard brand integrity. A final deal could become a massive revenue-generating driver for SMX, considering the product volume associated with PepsiCo and their intent to promote and track sustainability initiatives across their European supply chain. Important to the SMX value proposition, PepsiCo appears interested in leveraging SMX's invisible marker system in waste sorting to track closed-loop recycling and verify sustainability claims. Others want in. 

Over the past few years, SMX has been adding to a Who's Who customer list interested in utilizing its blockchain-tech system to identify, sort, monitor, and pack waste. That includes the Perth Mint, the North American Flame Retardant Alliance (NAFRA), LVMH Métiers d'Art (OTC: LVMHF), and the Israeli Cotton Board. And those established names still represent just the tip of the revenue-generating iceberg regarding new client opportunities. For companies committed to traceability, accountability, recycling, and fostering a global circular economy, having SMX technology in the toolbox is more than vital; it's essential.

Serving A Purpose In Homeland Security

Know this, too- new client opportunities extend far beyond the private sector. SMX technology could become one of the most potent weapons in a homeland security arsenal. Remember, the vast profits made without supply chain checks and balances often support global terrorism, an area of concern needing no introduction to most. These dollars are raised daily through conventional manufacturing and transporting channels. While that result has been hard to stop, it's no longer impossible. Thank SMX for that.

They market precisely the type of technological asset needed to combat supply chain fraud and deficiencies to mitigate untoward intentions. And there's plenty to target, evidenced by countries spending billions to prevent black market trade. The United States's budget allocation for homeland security will likely eclipse the $49.8 billion spent in 2021, highlighting its commitment to countering immersive threats. That's just the United States. Billions more are in play from other countries, many of which have an immediate need to bolster national security infrastructures. Opportunities extend beyond country defenses. Companies and sectors also need protection. Some may eventually be required to fortify their internal forces. 

That includes companies working in the digital assets sector like RIOT Platforms (Nasdaq: RIOT), Marathon Digital (Nasdaq: MARA), and CleanSpark (Nasdaq: CLSK). Due to their sector-user's anonymity and ease of transfer, digital assets can significantly threaten global homeland security defenses. Those are respected companies for sure, but considering the millions in daily transactions, they could unintentionally provide a pathway to funding less-than-desirable events on a global stage. They highlight that every company, food, beverage, digital asset, or material must, in a way relevant to its means, ally on the side of homeland protection. SMX may be the go-to option.

Seizing On A Price To Assets Disconnect 

Earning that interest is no coincidence. SMX's growth results from having some of the most sophisticated marker technology known to ensure corporate and government accountability and supply-chain security. And deals made in 2024, which add to a busy 2023, prove that more companies than ever before are paying attention to the SMX value proposition offered to them, accelerating an already ambitious SMX growth mission. 

So, don't be surprised to hear much more about SMX in 2024. By demonstrating that its invisible marker technology can be a potent asset to fight global supply chain destruction and fortify homeland security defenses, its client list should increase substantially, reflecting the technological shift in how businesses, manufacturers, military, and trade operate. And with client growth, revenue curves tend to steepen, which, from a valuation perspective, may expose the current SMX share price to be as ground floor as they get.
