|ditchpig: Atleast the share price graph here looks a little more positive.
|whilest2: Marvin, please get some psychiatric help. This thread will close and you will be all alone with your nightmare thoughts about OMH,and there will be no one to aim at - and perish the thought, but the share price might be glorious....
Anyone here got any ideas about how to help Marvin?|
|novine: The only way is up - if this recession did not kill it nothing will the share price will probably go up considerably from this level so no wonder that some are buying on pure potential speculations which will come with fresh funding no brainer really I might even persuade myself to buy some|
|roobarb36: Whilest -
Did he, I've had Marvin on Filter for a while now so have been blissfully unaware that I was a moron but if he did say that then fair enough, I must bow to his insider knowledge.
At least you and I and a few others know its a gamble at this stage and are prepared to take a calcualted risk. If it does go belly up we will have nobody to blame but ourselves and I for one will not waste the next 10 years of my life bleating about this and that and laughing at others who have lost money after they have "seen the light".
Who in all honesty can ever say they always time their trades perfectly. You have to make a judgement call, and if it falls, accept no one made you buy the shares,take it on the chin and decide whether to bale out,stick or twist.
I know with Jon Faiz Kayem and Chris Gleeson heavily invested at much higher prices with their own money, not cut price options, along with a few pension companies and institutions both here and in the States I feel a little less concerned with the short term fluctuations in the share price and more confident in the long term viability of the company.
The previous Nasdaq float was pulled through no fault of their own and as I have said before they would have thought long and hard before they had another shot at it. Usually when they they do things like this they would like a positive announcement or two shortly before or shortly after the float to get it up and running and bring it to the attention of potential new investors who are not as jaded or cynical as some on here are.
The huge volume in early January also suggests to me that many other people with big pockets and people to answer to have decided it is now an interesting entry point.
Sorry, what am I thinking, I should just say zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz and be put back in my place.|
|roobarb36: Did not want more dilution but in this market they had no real option at the company's stage of development and did very well to attain a placing price above the current share price
Must admit that the price stagnating for so long around the 2p mark at a time when everyone knew they were in need of money smacked at a placing at or about this price.
One can only assume that the market must have had wind of this potential funding or I'm sure with the lack of buying activity over the last few months the price would have continued to fall.
Also the impressive video presentation on OMH's website again suggested that they were making a real effort to get their house in order to impress potential financiers during a difficult fund raising environment.
Lets hope that Mr Kayyem, released from his Efficacy duties and Mr Gleeson can give OMH shareholders a little hope after 10 years of abject misery.
It takes a long time to turn around negative perceptions but so far they've done about all they could have given the difficult circumstances.
It is also reassuring that Mr Kayyem bought bucket loads of shares in the region of 17.5p and so he must be desperate to prove his investment was not as foolish as some would have you believe.
May take some considerable time yet but lets hope he can prove the doubters wrong, big style.|
|marvin9: Not being to harsh on the directors, i think its the fault of those pesky MM who for years have manipulated this share price and tree shook and tree shook.
Nevwer in coperate history has such a small company been picked on and been the sole attention of every mm in the worlds stock markets.
I think next week it will be differnt, the share price will rocket, mark my words, i had a secret tip from a little green pixie down at the dog track, goes by the name of pinky.|
|ngen yap: Marvin, think you will find management has effectively changed since last two fund raising with the founder of tech now taking reins, now further supplemented by an experienced Chris Gleeson. Sales strategy has been boosted by Fisher distribution deal and you can see from the number of placements in the last 6 months alone, to be showing a high growth rate. Honesty, Nanosphere is not in a different league, in fact, I think Osmetech's technology is far superior to theirs, hence OMH's sales overtaking Nanospehere's this year. It is just pretty fortunate they raised significant funds when markets were good, whilst OMH relied upon sale of previous business.
I did a quick forecast of OMH's sales, so let's see where we get to.
No of Sales per
Instruments unit Revenue/$
2009 30 50000 1,500,000
2010 80 100000 8,000,000
2011 150 150000 22,500,000
2012 200 200000 40,000,000
2013 250 250000 62,500,000
If the above growth can be achieved, as I said, I can see a larger pharma buying us out at a price significantly higher than 6p. A great return from today's share price. Always look at your investment from today's standpoint, not history.
|regandjess: Without looking at the share price,would anybody care to have a guess which direction the OMH share price has gone today....|

James called me this morning just after 9 and we chatted for about 15-20mins.
Bit of a mixture but I'll try and explain what was said:
1) Don Hetzel have gone as part of cost cutting and because OMH have now moved onto a different stage of the business.Intro's have been made and James says the main players they need for the way forward are very much on board.
2) He said the placing was very good news for OMH as the funds will last about 2.5-3 years.
3) Asked about what the wait has been, he said it was potential partners stretching things out NOT that there was no deal in the offing.
4) I said investors were furious he had been granted further options but he stated they were upon condition OMH turns over at least £5m and is attached to the shareprice, otherwise he gets nothing.
5) Asked how long before we get a deal and could we be waiting for another year. He said when Gordon Hall did the deal with Abbott for Shield it took 12-18months and OMH were now entering into that kind of time period about now. Hmmm...
6) Also asked if we would see a deal BEFORE all the extra approvals for Gonerea?, Trichomonas, Clamydia and Candida. Now I've got to be careful here so I'll just say that IMHO we are not going to have to wait that long. You are all going to have to read into that what you will because I know James will read this.
7) Pnuemonia is going well and will start clinical trials next year.
8) UTI seems to be seperate from the Multi-faceted device and we could see a seperate deal, no time limits were given.
9) Asked why on earth they didn't raise a load of money earlier when the share price was higher. He admitted in hindsight that would have been a good idea but I think they didn't think the negotiations would take this long.
10) James also said they couldn't risk waiting or were advised not to wait for BV approval because theoretically it could take the same length of time as UTI and they'd be stuck with 3 months money and would have been in a bad negotiating position even with the approval under their belts.
11) Shorting. I said finally we suspected that this had been leaked and someone had been shorting these from a great height. I said shareholders were especially gutted about this. I also said one way or another we'd find out who. He said they'd been doing the rounds in the city for over a month and that there was therefore many "insiders". He would be very interested to know who this was. I said if the position was not closed in the market then we all would know who was responsible. He agreed that if this happened then we would have our answer.
There was other stuff I can't remember but will try to expand.
In short this whole thing was caused by negotiations being strung out for longer than was bargained for. James feels OMH are now in a very strong position to complete negotiations.
I hold and will continue to do so.

Troutisout you should hold your head in shame "
Where have you come from???? just looked up your posting history and you can't talk can you FFS can't even tell his wife about his share purchases!
As for share price drops you seem to only post on another site and that share price fall since July (60p-4p) makes OMH's look very respectable,
" Central African Mining and Exploration Company - >
4.10p purchase that was my best
Not telling the highest I paid lol
