brimach2: Delores....£4 million won’t look at it. Think more like 15 to 20 million in first placing followed by another 50 to 70 million in the next, both before the end of next year. That is the sort of dilution you need to consider. As an example of the sort of cash AFC may need to grow into its markets…Ceres, having raised £19 million previously raised a further £77 million last year (both from Placings ) to fund its business plan and current investment programme because even after 16 years and lots of previous cash investment into the business its current manufacturing capacity was still small. It has recently invested £8 million in a new manufacturing plant in Redhill which will come on stream in January (2020), this will give Ceres a 2MW capability to manufacture 200,000 cells –expandable to 10MW (one million cells) if needed…. just a tad ahead of AFC then? In comparison, readers should note that Ceres has already a well established and developed network of high profile partners in Germany, China, Japan and Korea, such as Bosch and Weichai Power, (a major Chinese automotive and equipment manufacturer with a market cap in excess of US$10 billion) and the Miura Co., and Japan’s, Doosan, a world leader in the fuel cell industry. Accepted that AFC also have a link with Doosan. As said earlier, even though Ceres are loss making, they are miles ahead of AFC today. The stark fact is that AFC Energy has a long road to travel and I firmly believe that it will still not be making a profit five years+ from now. So when people on this bulletin board start gabbing on about AFC/De Nora going to produce/manufacture/sell Megawatt+ systems in no time flat now that they have a commercial product etc, and we will all be millionaires soon, you really do need to re-join the real world. Readers/investors here need to ask themselves, what production capability has AFC/De Nora got right now? Realistically, what order revenue can you expect from such a limited capacity? How much cash needs to be injected into AFC to grow this business? Where will the cash come from? How will it be raised, Placing(s) Rights Issue(s), debt? When may we expect the first Call? How many Calls might be needed in the years ahead? How much dilution will come with each Call? What is a realistic timeline to breakeven/profit. There are zero fundamentals to analyse with this company. All of these things will impact on the share price going forward. So, what is it that justifies AFC’s current inflated share price in the face of the above and a pending Cash Call that will dilute all existing shareholders? You may as well place a bet on a long shot with William Hill. Bmac

brimach2: In comparing the business maturity of Ceres with AFC Energy and as an example of the sort of cash AFC may need to grow into its markets , you do not need a pair of high power spectacles to see that Ceres is an order of magnitude advanced on AFC from the point of view of product commercialisation, market penetration and business development. Ceres however, is a good example to use for showing why AFC’s share price is floating on rarefied air right now and just how far some posters are ahead of reality for AFC with their exuberance and hype. Multi-millions of pounds has been injected into Ceres to get it to where it is today and in addition, Ceres has £71 million in the bank for future development. A good lesson could be learnt by readers from the Ceres links below and from honestly coming to terms with the reality of what lies ahead for AFC and the scale of the investment AFC needs to grow from here. Investors also need to be realistic with the lengthy timelines that lie ahead for AFC. Ceres has a business model not too dissimilar to AFC, but in spite of having spent 16 years+ perfecting their own ‘unique’ fuel cell technology, Ceres revenue, which doubled in the last financial year, is still only circa £16 million. Against this it made a loss of circa £8 million i.e. a loss equal to almost half the size of its revenue. It’s amazing how all the fuel cell companies claim to have ‘market-leading technology’ and ‘uniqueness217; as benefits and selling points, just like AFC. They are all peddling a unique combination of advantages and all of them are highlighting the global opportunities, which unquestionably there are. In comparison to AFC who have no revenue, no order book, no product warranty, very little cash in the bank and only limited fuel cell production capability… Ceres, having taken 16+years to get to where it is… has an order book worth £28.4 million (at the report date Nov 2019). It has developed the SteelCell which works within the existing infrastructure of natural gas networks and also operates on sustainable fuels like biogas and hydrogen giving it potential for multiple markets and it has increased the number of its systems under licence in the same markets that AFC will be chasing its business. It has well established joint development agreements in place (JDA’s), which are essential for business growth and it has an investment programme that is fully funded with £71.3 million of cash, cash equivalents and short-term deposits…. and is ready to enter the EV Charging market.

brimach2: People need to take a cold hard look at reality and realistically assess timelines to meaningful order placements and revenue for AFC. The share price has been rising on nothing but hydrogen gas and whereas future prospects may appear bright the pertinent fact is, in the here and now world of today, AFC Energy has virtually no income, no orders, no revenue and no warranties for its products. Meanwhile the business requires substantial cash to survive the near term, and to grow in the long term. Ask yourself this….what is AFC’s revenue right now… effectively zilch, right? Now, try subtracting it’s current operating/running costs away from zilch and you might just begin to see that AFC needs to cover itself fairly soon with a Cash Call and probably a sizable debt facility as well. That Cash Call will substantially dilute everyone’s stake here when it comes. To what extent? Well that depends on the millions to be raised, the Offer share price and whether it will be done as a Placing or via a Rights Issue and if/whether you can and are prepared to buy yourself out of that resulting dilution. And, it’s very probable that in order to attract Institutional interest (which AFC badly needs to strengthen and support it’s share base) that the Offer will be at a heavily discounted price to the market price at the time. Responsible Investment Institutions (Schroders admitted), won’t buy into a wildly inflated share price and blustering on here, trying to imply that they will, is just more gas. I can hear someone shouting from the background already that this is just another troll at work. Well, no it’s not…it’s about basic maths and the financial necessity for this Company to survive in the short term and grow in the long term. A Cash Call is on its way, that is for sure and beefing up the share price with news flow beforehand is par-for- the-course for AFC. Just look back into it’s past. Happened every time. Some of you are going to get caught if you keep chasing this rise upwards. The fundamentals don’t support it. The gas that’s inflating was always going to go ‘pop’ at some point. There is a cash call coming, Two this year I would bet. A small one to start with and that will be followed by a much larger call later this year so considerable dilution is on its way for all existing holders.

jaknife: FQR714BHP, "I do not understand why peeps are selling this now, with more great news just around the corner???" When you write the words "more great news just around the corner", you might just as well write "more jam tomorrow", because that is what AFC has been promising now for the last 13 years. For 13 solid years AFC has promised jam tomorrow, stoked up an excitement with shareholders, only to then raise funds in a placing and not deliver any jam. And then the following year it does it again, promises jam tomorrow, stokes up excitement with shareholders, raises funds in a placing and delivers no jam. Most people can see the pattern and can see that at this precise point in time AFC are once again in the phase of stoking up excitement with shareholders. They've raised a small amount of money but, given that they burn £4m of cash per annum, they need to either place to raise more or, alternatively, create enough euphoria for the death spiral convertible bond to be fully converted. So if you can see lots of selling it is because of one of two things (a) bulls are selling because they know that now is a great opportunity to sell because these rare opportunities when the share price is pumped up down don't last long, or (much more likely because generally speaking AFC bulls are not a particularly intelligent breed) (b) placing or convertible bond shares are being forward sold now. warmest regards, JakNife

jaknife: Mr Sossidge, The evidence to date suggests: 1. Abramovich is a numpty - factually evidenced by the £7m loss that he's sitting on. 2. You are a day-dreamer rather than an investor - factually evidenced by the fantasy that you have that AFC will be worth "500-1000p in due course". 3. You're a gullible day-dreamer - factually evidenced by your preparedness to listen to Eugene Tenenbaum spin yarns about Jam tomorrow even though this company has been spinning about jam tomorrow for well over twelves years now and it's bleedingly obvious that AFC has no jam. But if you think that this means that Abramovich is better informed than little me, who simply claims to know how to actually read accounts then sobeit. I apologise for piercing the bubble of your wet dream of Abramovich and an AFC share price of 500p. But I suspect that you might have more luck with lottery tickets than with AFC. JaKNife

deccer1: vatnabrekk just remind everyone what it is that private related party company W2T do with their seven officers, no clients other than AFC and PHE, and an out of date little website; that PHE (or for that matter AFC) could not do for themselves or via a joint venture company with ownership split 50/50 between AFC and PHE and accountable to their shareholders, rather than via a private third party company; so saving more revenues for PHE, AFC and their shareholders? Do you even realise that without PHE or AFC, W2T would not and could not exist? Some people have even asked is PHE being run for the benefit of W2T, with perhaps PHE (and its shareholders) paying for all the development and taking all the dilution, and private company W2T (set up by the same person who set up AFC and who was also involved with PHE) stepping in to take a big slice of the money? Here is a lesson. A good way to know whether you are being shafted is to see if a share price is now lower than when you bought in, has there been regular dilution with lots and lots more to come, is a company still loss making, and are there any private related party arrangements at the centre of the business model? One or two of the above might be a red flag, but if you find all four you might then conclude that you have well and truly had a large and irregularly shaped turnip inserted up your vulnerable and no doubt rather sore little posterior so to speak. Of course you might rather like such an experience but I personally would not find it at all pleasing. Funny that isn't it.

jaknife: ffscomeonafc, re your 8138 "Shorters everywhere. If you are serious about investing in AFC then base it on facts, not on negative posts from shorters. These people are the scum of the earth." Shorters are an essential component to modern markets to assist in price discovery and provide a counter-balance to the exuberance of irrational longers. I defer to Fahmi Quadir of Safkhet Capital Management to provide a longer more eloquent defence: Https://ftalphaville.ft.com/2019/03/21/1553166784000/Safkhet-Capital-s-defence-of-short-selling/ The real "scum" in the case of AFC are: 1. Management who have repeatedly and regularly mislead investors as to the true prospects for AFC's technology, creating a "froth" of interest in order to perpetuate the story and thus keep themselves in their own jobs. 2. The city advisers, brokers, nomads, PR firms, etc that facilitates the broken system that lets AFC and a huge number of similar AIM companies do this on a regular basis. 3. A select small group of the long community who have naively assisted management with their own repeated and regular exuberant comments on AFC. In turn they have created an echo chamber community where long only thoughts pervade and any short comments, criticism or negative views are stamped upon in order to reinforce the group think that provides that warm comfort blanket for investors to wrap themselves in as their investment is slowly eroded away. As a further point I would also emphasise that it is not the fault of the shorters that the share price has fallen. Whilst they may have profited from having a short position the root cause of the fall in the share price is nothing to do with them, the reason for the share price fall lies 100% solely firmly and squarely at the feet of an incompetent management team that have delivered nothing other than wild speculative RNSs about supposed projects whilst frittering away shareholder funds on their own lifestyles. And as I final point, when this useless POS company finally gets round to the placing that it desperately needs to save it from otherwise impending insolvency, this shorter here will be putting his hand in his pocket to buy shares in the placing to support the company in its darkest hour ... and thus close my short position.

robo175: Fuelling the future at AFC Shares in AFC Energy are up 278% since Adam Bond took over in December 2014 The drive for efficiency will be every bit as important, if not more so, than cyclical energy prices in determining the destiny of clean energy in the future. That is certainly one of the main takeaways from an afternoon in the company of Adam Bond, the chief executive of AFC Energy (AFC:AIM). Since taking over at the helm of the alkaline fuel cell specialist in December 2014, Bond has pursued a clear and coherent strategy which has demonstrated the company’s own march towards the efficiencies needed to commercialise their clean energy technology. The markets in any event seem to have appreciated the milestones set by the company. Year-to-date the shares are up 226%. (Click on chart to enlarge) AFC ENERGY - Comparison Line Chart (Rebased to first) Off the boil Admittedly, the £95 million cap has come off the boil somewhat of late and on a three month view the stock is down 43%. I ask Bond if he is concerned that AFC’s stellar momentum might be running out of steam. ‘The scope of the opportunity for AFC Energy continues to grow and we are firmly in dialogue with a number of partners in advancing into the commercial fuel cell world and towards our stated objective of 1GW of fuel cells under development or installed by 2020,’ he tells Shares. ‘With the work we are doing at the moment behind the scenes, there is a significant amount of momentum still to be accessed as we finish out 2015 and roll into 2016,’ Bond says. ‘The momentum the company currently has behind it is infectious and to see how it has evolved and matured over the last 12 months has been inspiring. I’m confident with the activities we are currently working on, we will see a reinstallation of the momentum we saw in the share price over the first six months of this year,’ he adds. An equity swap arrangement with specialist finance provider Lanstead saw AFC recieving cash once the shares went above a certain price (13.8p) and this deal is coming to a close after 18 payments. Because Lanstead has been paying AFC once the share price is above 13.8p, the group has not had to burn so much of its own cash. The drawback being that, as a result, Lanstead held a lot of AFC equity creating a significant overhang. However with Lanstead Capital now holding only around 3% and another stakeholder – Linc Energy (T16:SGX) – selling its holding, is the recent share price volatility behind the company? ‘The selling out by these two shareholders has most likely seen downward pressure placed on the stock, however, I believe the sentiment in the market towards AFC Energy remains positive and indeed, there is growing support behind us in not only delivering on our objectives for 2015, but also in articulating and being held accountable for milestones into 2016 which we will be coming out with over the coming weeks,’ Bond says. Managing the share price is not the job of a chief executive, so what is Bond’s plan for sustainable growth? ‘We are all about creating a long-term value proposition for our shareholders through our business model and in the form of partnerships we are currently with. ‘We should not be fooled into seeing short-term share price increases as the prize here, but in the creation of a massive corporate value proposition that will see the AFC fuel cell form an increasingly large component of the global energy mix,’ Bond says. Although Bond took over as chief executive of AFC Energy at the end of last year he had been a non-executive board member prior to this. AFCEnergyStall Energy background ‘I’ve spent my career in the energy space. I have a lot of experience around clean technologies and the commercialisation of new technologies. AFC has been around since 2006 and we listed in 2007. We’re predominately focused on developing and delivering what will be the world’s first alkaline fuel cell technology.’ Bond then goes on to highlight one of the crucial issues in the evolution of a technology company: ‘I think that a lot of technology companies, the biggest challenge is the transition from technical to commericial. You can get very comfortable in the laboratory trying to make something work.’ We’re at a point now that we know the fuel cells work. For the first time, we’ve delivered an outcome in Germany (referring to the Stade KORE in Germany) so we’ve proven that we can generate electricity.’ The question at that point becomes how best to optimise that technology for commerical applications. That to Adam Bond’s mind, means focusing on the right questions. ‘Those questions are things like; what type of power output do we require for commericial applications? This will differ from market. The market for fuel cells in Europe and the output requirement will be very different from that in Korea for example. So the question then is where you are at on the technology front with the market which will drive commercial outcomes today? ‘That’s what I’ve been trying to look at; understanding the market and the technology and putting them together. My background is in the global energy market, I’ve worked throughout the world and I understand the different drivers within government and within industry as well as the drivers within the clean energy space.’ Along the way, AFC’s technology has garnered a number of commercial deals in Korea, Thailand and Dubai with installations of 50MW, 10MW and 300MW respectively. All of which of course plays well when set against Bond’s ambitious 2020 pipeline target of 1GW. It is important to remember that while AFC Energy showed cash outflows of less than £1 million in the six months to the end of April, this might be flattered somewhat by the company’s Lanstead equity swap. Investing in new or unproven technologies is inevitably fraught with risk and AFC is no exception in this respect. That said, the company’s ability to attract high status investors has at least proved newsworthy. Whether or not investors of the media profile of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich have added significantly to share price performance is perhaps moot. Or at least to Bond, the oligarch’s stake – while welcome – has not been a significant catalyst for either over or under-performance. ‘Mr Abramovich has been a shareholder in AFC Energy now for several years and so I don’t believe there is any direct correlation between his strategic decision to invest in the company and any perceived recent hype in the share price. ‘He remains very supportive and can see the massive opportunity that exists for AFC Energy¹s fuel cell in the global market and so in that context, his investment is and will continue to be most beneficial to the company¹s long-term deployment strategy.’ Mitigating risk So far, AFC has done an admirable job of mitigating risk and managing investor expectations. ‘As we continue to deliver our 11 stated milestones for 2015, we are at each stage confirming a de-risking of our technology in the industrial setting,’ says Bond. ‘With the introduction of executive commercial and operations teams at AFC in recent weeks, we are working on fully understanding these risks and using our activities in Germany and elsewhere to ensure these risks continue to be mitigated and managed as best as we can at this stage of the project and technology lifecycle.’ Bond adds that this includes the full range of technical, operational, funding, staffing, execution and regulatory risks. ‘AFC Energy is in a strong position to manage several of these risks, but the idea of partnering in chosen regions is to work collaboratively with our partners and contractors to ensure appropriate risk mitigation strategies are in place across the full spectrum of the risk register,’ he explains. Fuel-cell primer Fuel cell technology is increasingly becoming recognised as a better technology option than conventional internal combustion engine generators or batteries. Applications can be portable, stationary or used in transportation. As the name suggests, portable fuel cells are designed to be moved, and this category includes auxiliary power units (APU). Stationary power fuel cells are units designed to provide power to a fixed location and transport fuel cells provide either primary propulsion or range-extending capability for vehicles. There are a number of different electrolytes employed in the production of fuel cells and AFC Energy produces alkaline fuel cells that bypass the need for precious metal catalysts to be used in manufacture. An added advantage of AFC’s proprietary technology is that water is the main constituent by-product of the process and this in itself is a selling point in markets like the arid Middle East. PL9A0133-1 Biography Adam Bond, Chief executive Adam Bond took over as chief executive of AFC Energy in December 2014, having joined the board as a non-executive director in 2013. With over 15 years’ experience operating within the international energy sector Bond has held posts both in executive management positions for listed energy companies, and in advisory capacities to both governments and the private sector. He is currently a non-executive director of Waste2Tricity where AFC has an equity interest. Prior to joining AFC Energy, Bond held the position of global president – clean energy at Singapore-listed and Australian domiciled Linc Energy (T16:SGX). INVESTMENT CASE AFC Energy (AFC:AIM) 32.5p SUMMARY AFC’s disruptive technology has the potential to displace mainstream gas-fired power stations for utility scale generation; being cleaner, more efficient, modular and therefore more versatile, and ultimately lower-cost. The fundamentals of AFC’s technology also lend it to low-cost design and manufacture. Bull case • Has consistently delivered on a detailed series of technical milestones • Closing in on profitability; should be in the black by the end of 2017 • Disruptive potential dovetails with emerging global energy efficiency trend Bear case • Share price highly newsflow-sensitive • Disruptive competion • Roll-out execution time-frame risk Market value: £95 million Prospective PE Oct 15: n/a Prospective dividend yield: n/a
