|Not a good day to talk about posting on twitter...|
|Could do with some more PR on social media I think. Will see what I can do on Twitter to get a few mentions|
|A report from September that is worth reading: LWRF at page 176 if I recall correctly.
|Lightwaverf get a mention in this months House Beautiful UK magazine on page 156.
There will no doubt be a growing interest from these home magazines and a lot more intesest in IoT in general which should be positive for the industry.|
|Interesting article about other major Power Suppliers getting into the market:
Could result in some being taken over.|
|Interesting posts gentlemen.|
|Although a direct competitor with deep pockets, I believe the current Hive TV campaign will also be beneficial to Lightwaverf by the raising the awareness of the new technology and it's capabilities.|
|Sikyj, that's my interpretation. I think CC are now calling the shots. The last RNS mentioned that they were getting repeat orders so the size of the order book is a bit misleading regarding total sales. We will need to wait the results for the full picture.GLA|
|I think you maybe underestimating the resourcefulness of the board and City Capital. Changes have been made: Open Source : New Distribution Partners : Increasing retail prices (as they were well below competitors)- Focus on wrapping up Homekit etc.
If there was more positive news and orders from overseas the order book could expand rapidly which should result in confidence returning and a new wave of investors.
It is not just the size of the order book it is how often they turn the order book over. They maybe waiting for the right time to suggest that they have in fact sold a lot more than the current order book would suggest.|
|Or management get cleared out and new ones installed who can get the job done.|
|An Apple a day keeps the Doctor away, so they say. It maybe that Apple will rescue the situation and have a monumental effect on the business. The beauty is that a logo like Apple can transform a business at a stroke.Now that the company have a wider range of distribution channels, visibility becomes clear which breeds confidence in itself. With or without Apple for the next few months, the path of growth seems certain with suppliers like Srewfix marketing the goods.|
|Looks like clutching at straws. Very poor. I have been a shareholder since 2012 and have seen this company make mistake after mistake imo. Products are good but management have mishandled it. Was hoping CC director (Harris) would show the way with his background and experience. Heres hoping!
All those wishing or hoping for the company to do this and that which will hopefully bring high growth I can only say its a slim chance with this management. They had the market lead all those years ago and wasted the advantage in a sector which was white hot. call it narrow sighted or inexperience etc do not know. What a waste!|
|mixed bag, pretty neutral for share price.
Good support shown from a key shareholder. Given, its a high interest rate but would you lend the company money with the publicly available information? For existing holders, it's much preferable to more dilution.
Poor sales, but the range is very tired now, some products over 5 years old, which is a lifetime in this market. If they have 150K R&D tax credit to come, there's been some hefty R&D going on to replace those products.
Looks like like a short term loan, to bet 150K on Homekit to me. Whatever the situation now, put some new product out with an Apple logo on it and the channels, new and old, will light up. It's all in the execution of getting those to market. Hopefully, CC are looking after our mutual interests there.|
|There are now a lot of companies plugging it on their websites like this now if you check, so the uplift could happen quickly,these resulting from the work done over time by Megaman.
|buggy, I do not wish to dispute your summing up but just putting forward another take on the situation.
b) CC put up new funds a short time ago at 12.75p and seem very committed to the business, the terms of the loan maybe generous in your eyes but maybe a way of rewarding them for the support, and suggests that they can afford this repayment, which is no-doubt meant to provide confidence going forward.
c)Sales maybe are at H1 level but they say are showing traction - so I think they are saying they are now on the up - and to support that have said the order book stands at £800k which is £50k up on the last figures they provided.
d) When you find the deal with Megaman was not what you intended, is it not right to move quickly to correct that? By doing so they are gaining distribution and with notable success's with the likes of Screwfix and now around 200 Graham Plumbers Branches plus others that I have either posted links too before or noticed. Having done a quick check it seems that the 200 Branches of Granhams do not yet hold stock, so with winter on its way it is likely that once the base stock is in, there will be rapid repeat orders as the products are now more visible in the market.
The rise in the share price is only due to WIRE taking its offer up and increasing its bid to that of other MM at this time.
This winter could be the turning point for Smart Home products.
To avoid misunderstandings I only have a small holding at present (which I think I flagged when I got back in at around current levels) and will be waiting for more news before investing further but do see this as a good time to take a small punt for those not in already as the long-term prospects look reasonable.|
|DISCLAIMER: No longer invested but just observing, so ignore my rambling.
Not really sure why the price was marked up on this news as I can't see the positive that warrants a price rise.
(a)In general companies do not release good news on Fridays.
(b)Secondly the money situation must be tighter that I anticipated to drive the company to take a short term loan at 15% pa and the lender is concerned enough to have incoming ring-fenced to cover their payment.
(c)Sales still at a level to H1 level which was terrible >>> where is the traction.
(d) Having additional distribution channels is now being trumpeted as a positive? Previously they had over 30 distribution channels which they ditched to go with Megaman. We were told that this is great because this model means that they do not have to carry stock hence reduction in working capital requirements. We are now going back to where we were before they dismantled their distribution channels. They have now done an about face and telling us that it is a good thing? What about the working capital requirements etc. etc, all those bad things that they told us meant that the Megaman structure is the best model forward. Having to borrow 215K at a loan shark rate does not scream of company with a lot of head room in the working capital department.
I am no longer an investor so most probably way off with my analysis.
For those that are still invested, I wish the best of luck and hope that it comes good. I am just an interested observer as I once had great hope for this company and it formed a big chunk of my investment portfolio,|
|Revenue likely to be 1.5 to 1.6m|
|Yep, as others have mentioned let's hope they're making a good job of integrating with apple's homekit...I'd rather they got it right than rushing it out to market.|
|Well there you have it. Trading update and more funding|
|Just done a quick search on Screwfix Web site. .. Plenty of lightwave products available.|
|Zzzzzzzzzz no news and it appears no stock for Screwfix. None of the Screwfix stores have any LWRF products available online or at any stores nationwide.|
|LWRF featured in the new Medlock - Go Green Catalogue 2016/2017 with a double page spreed on pages 40/41
