|goldenmember: I hear that Quiktrak have actually bought BT and the board meeting is today to sign the deal. They have also got an option on Vodafone which will be announced next week. Once these acquisitions are completed they will be relocating all staff to Australia so they can take advantage of the nework they have built there in order to save costs.
It is also rumoured that the entire Labour Cabinet has accepted non-Executive positions on the board with the Queen taking the Chair.
Share price bound to go to 3p on this news!!!! Make certain you do your own research though as I have trouble separating fantasy from reality...wibble wibble!!!!|
|vinyy: Share price is looking up.......L2 is getting better 2 v 1|
|rcorlett2: I have just spoken to Annie Richards (corporate communications manager) @ Quiktrak.
They have noticed yesterdays increase in the share price and were called by the LSE but they will not be putting out a statement regarding the 60% increase.
She tells me that they are speaking to alot of people regarding contracts but they are not about to sign a deal within the next day, monday or tuesday.
She was very bubbly and did sound relatively excited though (may just be her general demeanour...)|

It doesn't seem long ago that the industry was enthusiastically debating how it was going to slice up the telematics cake. Internet services-stock price data, sports results, news, music, and so on- were all going to be downloaded into vehicles on a large scale, paid for by the consumer and the revenue shared by the service providers and the vehicle-makers. Even the Tier Ones were working on elaborate revenue models to share in the rich pickings.
Only that's not going to happen. If there is a rich cake in the offing-and there must be some doubt about that-then the telecommunications industry is not about to share it. And technology developments are moving in a direction that favours the telecomms companies as the primary providers and conduits of all telematics services, including vehicle navigation.
There's some logic to this.Take city high fliers as an example. If they need incar access to share price information, they also need it at home, in the restaurant or on the golf course. And they are relatively small in number, making the cost of providing the service prohibitively expensive for any one luxury car-maker.
The same model could be argued for people interested enough in music to be bothered to download it directly into an on-vehicle system from Internet suppliers. It seems much more likely that most will choose to data-stream MP3 files into their cars from home- based equipment, along with video and DVD files for rear-seat entertainment systems, using interfaces such as WiFi (802.11).
The rules have been changed by the march of technologies such as smart (Java-based) mobile telephones and personal digital assistants (PDAs). These provide the key to delivering information to vehicles and are also capable of delivering on-board and off-board navigation. The incontrovertible truth is that they have the potential to do the job as well as any dedicated on-board system. In addition, can guide their owners around town when their cars are parked.
Some sections of the automotive industry are preparing for this change. Oliver Rousselange, Delphi's European product marketing manager for audio and mobile multi-media, was honest enough to admit that the engineering community had "spent a few years trying to invent the perfect world without really considering what the driver actually wants or needs". he sees Delphi's role as providing the "perfect interfaces" for smart telephones and PDAs under its Radio- Plus platform.
He envisages steering wheel controls for radio systems with associated IP displays that also show turn-by-turn navigation with local traffic information included. "There is very little additional system cost," he says. And there is no reason why these off-vehicle systems should not communicate with all the same sensors used by current on-board navigation platforms.
The case for on-the-move downloading of information into vehicles, other than obviously useful systems such as navigation and traffic information, has been overstated. And with road safety legislators now taking a close interest, caution needs to be exercised.

|springbok: GUYS - I 'm just going to warn you that exactly the same thing that has happened over at ZYZ is going to happen here IMHO - Large placing of shares (CE also involved!) and the share price has dropped like a STONE to just over 10% of the placing price - You've got to really be careful of company's that put out large share placings without backing the placing up with REAL hope for an improvement in the company's prospects - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!|
|opthalmist: Yes, the share price will rise with demand, because all the bad news is out and priced in, and any good news is likely to cause more buying than selling.
The only reason a share doesn't rise with demand, is when the MM's know the company is going down the pan, or their is massive dilution ahead etc etc, so they can safely go short to cover demand, knowing they can balance the books further down the line at dirt cheap prices when they drop the price and everyone bails out.
That is not the situation with QTR.|
|optimist23: From iii :
HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT ABOUT TWENTY SMALL COMPANIES AND HAVE NOTICED SINCE FEB THEY HAVE ALL GONE DOWN IN PRICE,SO WE HAVE OBVIOUSLY BEEN IN A FALLING MARKET.LARGE COMPANYS HAVE NOT ,THINK THIS IS BECAUSE YOU CAN SPREAD BET THOSE AND CAN MAKE MONEY BOTH WAYS ,IF THE PRICE IS FALLING OR RISING.YOU CAN MAKE SO MUCH A POINT.SO WHAT DO YOU DO.PROBABLY LIKE ME THERE ARE OTHERS WHO STUDY THE STOCK MARKET EVERY DAY (8 HOURS EVERY DAY WATCHING ALL TRADES).YOU START QUESTIONING YOURSELF ,HAVE I BOUGHT INTO A BUM COMPANY,MY MONEY IS GOING DOWN EVERY OTHER DAY,DO I SELL OR HOLD ON?.MARKET MAKERS MAKE THE PRICE GO DOWN 5% THEN ANOTHER 5% WHICH IS 10% THEN YOU THINK DO I SELL,THEN THE DAY AFTER THEY MAKE THE PRICE GO BACK UP 7% SO YOU THINK THE TIDES TURNED AND WE ARE BACK IN BUSINESS AND YOU DON'T SELL,THEN THE SHARES ARE DOWN 10% THE DAY AFTER AND YOU WISH YOU WOULD HAVE SOLD AND IT CARRIES ON LIKE THAT .UNTILL THE PEOPLE WHO ARE RUNNING THE SHOW DECIDE TO LET THE MARKET RECOVER AND LET PEOPLE MAKE A FEW QUID ITS OUT OF OUR HANDS.THE MARKET WILL RECOVER AGAIN SOON AND IN LITTLE COMPANYS YOU CAN MAKE QUICK GAINS AND ITS ALL ABOUT TIMING.THE MARKET MAKERS CAN GET AWAY WITH SHARE PRICE MANIPULATION WITH THE SMALL COMPANIES ,WHICH THEY CAN'T WITH YOUR ICI,RMC GROUP,BT.

|optimist23: Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) on Tuesday this coming week where details of when the new shares will come onto the market will be announced. Directors are putting £200,000 of their own money into the fundraising so out of the 56 million shares approximately 15 million shares less out of the 56 million shares will not be floating around. They will added to the directors interest.
Once the new shares have come onto the market the price should start to rise. The price has bottomed out (see candlesticks and definitions) and if one sees the trades since the fall from 15 pence they have been hardly any sells from 15p to 2 pence. This means that once more new contracts and licences start to come the price will have no resistance on the rises and they won't be any sellers, just buyers.
All the bad news was priced in hence the price did not fall when their results were released last week. It actually finished up on the day. Most of the latest contracts and licences were not included in the results. Even with the fundraising announcement they did announce a contract win with the fundraising announcement. The newsflow has been pretty good this year with new contracts and licences being awarded practically every month. A good RNS every month. What was wrong was their business model, which they have rectified now. All the bad news is out of the way now and with the directors options at 25 pence I think the directors can get the share price rising with new contracts win pretty soon.
From the Final Results :
beginning it has been a fundamental component of our business plan that we
operate a UK national network, but the establishment of such a network requires
a significant amount of capital and we have to date not been successful in
securing these funds - our efforts in this direction continue and we believe
that in due course we shall find a partner to further commercialise the M25
Network and take the technology to the national market.
Accordingly, the directors resolved in May 2004 to suspend commercial operations
of the M25 Network, retaining it for demonstration purposes, and to focus the
company's efforts on securing partners to roll-out, operate and commercialise
QuikTrak networks in the Territory. In June 2004, we secured #845,000 in new
equity to finance this revised strategy.
QuikTrak's secure, accurate and reliable tracking technology has been well
received by the market for a wide range of applications and I remain confident
that with our new approach based on licensing and partnerships we have a solid
base for re-building shareholder value".

|tuscany: Why do you people waste your time posting all that rubbish, which is of no use and of no interest to any serious investor or speculator. It would be very refreshing to see some serious comment, with reasoning and logic. Has anyone got anything to say on that basis??
And, by the way, using charts and all those 'clever' analytical tools on a share like this is a complete waste of time and effort - there is no liquidity and movements in the share price tell you nothing.
My own view is: I'm rather pleased to see that QTR has changed its business model to drastically reduce operating costs and maximise opportunities for its patented technology. Selling licences to utilise their technology rather than operating a network themselves gives them a much better chance of success by cutting operating costs to a fraction of what they were. Look at radio spectrum licence costs in the UK!
The revised business model is similar to ARM and could work very well for them. Focus on the technology and let others invest in the applications.|
|responsible lad: It does not matter if QTR did not get the fundraising since their technology is first class and they have won many contracts which are what their last anouncements are about. QTR can always raise money anyday with us shareholders as they for sure know they have our full support as their performing very well as a company.
My opinion in fact is that QTR are going to pull out an anounement to deny romours of this abandon fundraising. Then the share price may even double. The upside is around 50% with no fund raising and 100% with it.|
