|jcpete5: Perhaps u could suggest a more realistic reason why share price not bombed as many other stocks have done. Chance for u to demonstrate some intelligence for the first time. The bulletin board awaits....|
|eternaloptimist: Quid, I will certainly go along with NSO having made *glacial speed progress so far but I still think there is now a reasonable chance of visible progress being made and I was guessing at a share price above 1p and possibly up to 2p in the next 6 - 12 months. 10p by the end of year definitely comes under my "wildest dreams" category :) IMO
*Glaciers are starting to melt a lot faster......|
|mjcrockett: The game we usually play is to stuff the share price up while the results are issued and then push it a little higher while people buy a few and finally drop it back down to the 0.45/0.50 level a couple of days later. So, given that the share price has been hiked, we can be fairly confident that the results are going to be issued in the next few days.
|riddlerone: Morning all,cant help thinking that we are in for a very interesting 6 months.Firstly we have the next set of results which should be very good " The lower first half revenues in the joint ventures should be satisfactorily
compensated by increased revenues in the second six months and from new direct
business in Norway which has recently been agreed".We also have "Of note recently is a significant contract to
salvage oil offshore from a vessel wrecked on 11th August off Europa Point,
Gibraltar, which will contribute towards what should be considerably higher
revenues and profit in the second half of 2007".The balance sheet as of jun 2007 has £440k in cash debt free.We should now have if everything goes through after fees something in the region of £2.8 million in cash as well.Sounds like a heap of money that covers the share price without any of the value of the Stavenger plant,the added direct business from Norway,the now fully tested and trialed OTU and most importantly the technology that Nature has fully patented.The management now seem finally to have realised they either grow by producing the OTUs and contracting them out or sell the parts to give shareholders the value locked away in these JV,s .I believe that they have to do one or the other and we should see which over the next six months. Have a good xmas all..regds Micky|
|fatfish: well thats a turn up for the books 500k buy and the share price drops mmmmmmmm|
|mjcrockett: I agree with you Sharebuff. The share price has not fully taken on board the recent announcement. They have said they are looking at returning some of the cash to shareholders. If that really happens then we may see more of an uprating.
As a substantial holder of NSO I would love to see 3p but where do you get the 3p figure from? Market cap is currently £3m based on this mornings 0.55/0.7p share price.|
|malkie: Wiganer - I agree with you re the "All fur coat & no knickers" type of Companies.
I truly hope you are right & that I am over reacting.
However there is a huge difference between "PR Fluff" and normal market communications & updates.
The company has invested in a market awareness site. The non-performance of that site and subsequent lack of market updates prior to this placing has led me to raise an eyebrow.
Call me cynical, but why state your intention is to raise the profile of the company with a dedicated investor site, then not even bother to apply resources to keep it updated??
Whilst our share price remains at around the net asset value (at cost) of the
Group we believe that the potential of our technologies should be reflected in a
higher value. Shareholders may wish to further support the evolution of this
potential, and so benefit our share price. A new Nature Technology investor
website at www.investnature.com has been established as a medium for advising as to progress on the key elements of our planned developments. This site has a
direct link to our technical and industry marketing website www.naturetechsolution.com. In addition we expect that our new offshore unit
will be featured shortly in a leading industry oil, gas and offshore journal and
such articles will in future be posted on our investor website.
and since that one pdf - absolutely ziltch!!
I like Companies actions to match their stated intentions.
The El Oro chairman's report is a hoot - I particularly like the line "Praise the Lord & pass the ammunition!"
I'll wager he has consumed a glass or two of port in his time! Fabulous stuff!
|malkie: interesting - I have held for a few months and not a regular poster here.
Just one comment, whilst I see today's announcement and level of participation from informed parties as an extremely positive indication,( I am particularly impressed by El Oro's involvement - a very traditional & extremely shrewd outfit - worth checking them out ELX - www.eloro.co.uk - Chairman is a bit of an Eccentric - but non-the less they have near on £100k invested in NSO!), I am quite disappointed by the fact that the Company seems to want to keep to an absolute minimum, the level of visibility & information voluntarily provided to the market.
They are clearly making significant progress with their Offshore Treatment Units and have managed to garner significant support for this placing.
But no updates from the Company between the initial announcement and this placing has caused that the share price to languish at these levels for several months and thus benefited the placing participants with a nice low entry point.
I fear that this lack of clear market communications and low visibility may be an indicator that, if things do take off, the long term interests of the private investor may not be as clearly aligned to those of the Directors & Major shareholders as one would have hoped and expected.
The pathetic state of the Company's own investor awareness site is an example of how they hardly seem to even pay lip service to the retail investment community.
Don't get me wrong, I feel that the fundamentals are there for a very significant business enterprise, but how much we as retail investors will see of the benefit remains to be seen.
Continue to hold and would be interested in other views, hopefully to the contrary, but I feel that the way this is playing out indicates a bit about the psychology of the management and perhaps a bit of contempt for retail investors.
The biggest indicator of this is of course the fact that no shares have been traded as yet today!!|
|mjcrockett: Sorry to break up the party with an 'intruder' post.
As you watch the NSO share price continue to descend in response to small sells, it is perhaps worth reminding ourselves of good reasons to hang on in there. The following extract from the interim results statement promises some news in the not too distant future:-
"Meanwhile in order to fund our 60% share of developing the NTS offshore
treatment unit - which is anticipated to be trialled offshore in first quarter
2006 (i.e. NOW - MJ) with immediate prospects for demand - we made a placing of NTS shares inJuly to raise a gross sum of #480,000, less very effective direct costs of only #20,000. We welcome all new shareholders who participated in this fund raising.
In addition to oil industry generated waste, there has been a continuing and
huge opportunity for NTS in the oil industry relating to 'produced water',
generated in large scale quantities worldwide as part of oilfield reservoir
extraction. In an increasingly environmentally conscious era this enormous
generation of displaced water requires the application of solutions not
previously available in treatment to levels now required. We have researched and trialled with a leading oil company project Group over 5 years, and will now further explore the application of NTS solutions, possibly in co-operation with a major oil industry drilling fluids and service group.
As explained above, the long lead time between enquiry and installation of
'third party' plants makes it difficult to forecast the level of growth in
turnover year on year, but we are confident that our share of joint venture
revenues will continue to increase in the second half of 2005 and into 2006.
With the launch of our new offshore treatment unit next year we are hopeful that NTS will achieve a further breakthrough into significant revenue generation in second half 2006 and beyond."
