Graphene 3D Lab (V.GGG) will be acquiring all shares of their ex-parent graphene company Graphene Laboratories. Graphene 3D was incorporated in 2013 as a spin-off company geared towards the development of graphene to be used in a wide range of manufacturing processes and products. As with any new startup company, there were major risks. At the time of their inception, Graphene 3D did not actually have any functional products, only concepts. However in just a year, the company had already developed a 3D printed battery and a graphene filament designed for 3D printing. The company was able to raise funds through investors and take the company public, eventually resulting in a valuation of over $40 million.
You are probably already aware that graphene production is highly expensive. The future of graphene and all of its applications hinges on commercialization which centres on mass production. The graphene company that is able to make large amounts of graphene in an economically viable way will win the contest.
Every week it seems there are major developments and announcements about new proprietary production methods. But there may be some marketing trickery, and deliberate vagueness when it comes to these “breakthroughs.”
If you are interested in investing in graphene, more specifically investing in graphene stocks involved in production, then it is imperative that you pay attention to the significance of the company’s claims.
Do not fall victim to extravagant claims. Claims by graphene companies are not necessarily regulated as in the case of pharmaceuticals for example. There seems to be no standard list of attributes the industry goes by, especially with regards to the stability and quality of the graphene.

Graphene 3D Lab Inc. (TSX-V: GGG, OTCQB: GPHBF) has announced that there will be a reduction of the company’s outstanding shares by 7.3%. This translates into a change from 44,387,500 to 41,164,955 common shares. The cause of the share reduction is a result of the departure of co-founder Michael Gouzman who served on the company’s advisory board. The rights to the shares were contingent on Mr. Gouzman remaining on the advisory board.
The President and CEO of Graphene 3D, stated “I want to thank Professor Gouzman for his contributions and service to the company and I wish him every success in his future endeavors.”
What are the repercussion of a cancellation or reduction of shares?
More importantly what are the repercussions of the co-founder stepping down from the advisory board?
Graphene Company: Carbon Sciences (CABN:NASDAQ)
Category: Graphene Production and Graphene Applications
Company Summary: Carbon Sciences, Inc., practices research and development of mass production of graphene from natural gas. The company has developed its own chemical vapor deposition process that is supposed to produce commercial size sheets of graphene for use in electrical and materials applications.
The company plans to license its technologies. They were previously known as Zingerang, Inc. but have since changed its name to Carbon Sciences, Inc. The organization was founded in 2006 and is based in Santa Barbara, California.
Current: Carbon Sciences has been able to explore procedures for the production of economical graphene, and now is engaged in the development of graphene applications such as ultra-high speed fiber optics for cloud computing. The company is manipulating the optical and electrical properties of graphene to create a new generation of fiber optics that are very fast, use little power, and cost less. Carbon Sciences is eager to use graphene in photodetectors, fiber lasers, and optical switches. The result the company hopes to achieve is enhanced Cloud based services with fewer limitations. Cloud services such as music streaming, movie and video streaming, e-commerce, and other cloud services could be launched into a new high speed generation.
