edmondj: British Bear, It is the old dilemma of do you draw 'insight' from what directors and managers tell you - no, swear to you is the case - versus blunt 'insight' from what the share price is telling you. Both ways can prove right and wrong, on different occasions. This is what makes the investment game so compelling: like seduction there are no firm rules. When are you alleging I have 'tipped' this share? It was years ago, so many I have lost count. Life moves on. More recently one was being pressurised to update and give a view when the shares were soaring; although I noted it I held well back from recommending a buy. I have stated plainly here (in the form of a question because I am legally identifiable) 'can this company survive for another AGM?' Honestly I don't find I have been ignorant of the risks. Are you next going to cane me for not being clever enough to sell out, into the 40p + strength a year ago, on the directors' statements it was all coming good?! At least unlike the Universities Superannuation Scheme I was not buying then. You would think these people were being given the 'best possible' information.
3 doubler: The much talked about Ghana water contract was supposed to be the making of the company and was the reason for the rise to 40p last year.It was thought to generate profits of something like £2m/year to AVT.However the company was, by all accounts, led a merry dance by the locals saying very soon now they would be in a position to sign the various agreement for the project but it never came.The reason I assume was because they didn't have the money(typical Africa) so I guess now they have $100m from the World Bank things can now go ahead. My guess is if the Ghana Contract does go through it is with all the history surrounding the company still worth about about 10p to the AVT share price.Fidelity did come in as a new investor in the financing at 5p which was quite interesting. Don't want to get too excited but this could be the start of the new begining under Captain Morgan. As a layman trying to look at it on a risk reward basis I think there is a 50:50 chance something might get signed on the back of this news in the next six weeks so I reckon there is a 50:50 chance of tripling my money over that period.Therefore using those odds it is worth a punt but for option money only.
britishbear: I had thought about "two-way share price but contract unlikely to ever be signed" but it was too long. Disagree with $:£ analysis though - I think £ will decline further against the dollar in the next 6 months. Of course if the opposite happens it will be good for AVT. Damage for the next results will already have been done and I doubt AVT hedge currencies.
shortashare: In response to British Bears post earlier... quote''AVT is another share where many of its costs will be in £ but nearly ALL its revenues will be in $'s. This is the primary reason for the fall imo. Dollar has further to fall so no recovery in the near future.''unquote The Bank of England MPC minutes were released today and it looks like interest rates will be cut now, rather than increased - this should be good for the dollar and therefore better for AVT. Also BB, I know you probably chose the title for this thread because of the pun, but we really are going 'one-way' at the moment, perhaps you could start a new thread with another title...? (I would but I don't know how to). Perhaps it could be called 'Two-way share price, but mostly up'. Lol
lord r: Stu Understand your frustration mate but without Morgan this Company would have gone down the pan back in June/July. AVT is a little tiddler in a complex big boys game involving meter manufacturers,utilities,partners,politians and other hangers-on. Progress has been incredibly slow on 2-way and AVT has come close-(or so they thought)to securing very large contracts which would mean we'd all be on the beach in the Bahamas by now. Even one contract would have a massive impact on the share price, so i'm hanging on in hope!Encouraging that some long term shareholders have topped up at these prices.Maybe they know something we don't!!
stu31: RNS Number:0415YAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC30 January 2001Advanced Technology (UK) Plc The Directors of Advanced Technology (UK) Plc note the recent move in the share price and confirm that they are in detailed discussions with a thirdparty for a large scale supply contract. A further more detailed announcement will be made in due course. RNS Number:7162CAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC27 April 2001Focus continues on South East Asia, where we await confirmation of commencement of the project. We are proceeding towards pilots with various other countries and our South East Asian partner, Paracorp Technology, has recently announced it has secured an order for a pilot installation in Tianjin province in China. In Europe we continue to build our presence in countries such as France, Italy and Germany and with new countries such as Greece. We have also received an order for a pilot in India and a first order for 1,000 units was received in February for a pilot installation in Malta. RNS Number:5519KAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC25 September 2001 The Group continues to support its South East Asia partner in preparation for manufacturing and system deployment. Negotiations between our partner and the utility regarding the Automatic Meter Reading Service contract are at an advanced stage. It is expected that production and revenue generation will begin before the end of 2001.Two new customer-funded pilots, in Ghana and Western Australia, will commence in October 2001.We expect the South East Asia project to provide a working example of a Two-Way Fixed Network which should provide a valuable reference site for other interested parties. Projects of this size, political nature and complexity, tend to result in protracted negotiations. The planning of future projects will incorporate allowances for these activities. (Yeah right like Ghana) RNS Number:4621PAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC4 January 2002Update Following a visit to the Far East in December 2001 by the management of ATL, the board of ATL reconfirms that it remains optimistic of a successful outcome to the negotiations with its partner in the Far East. (wonder who paid for that holiday er trip) RNS Number:4362XAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC19 June 2002 The Board has recognized the need to raise further funds as the Group has an urgent requirement for further funding to finance working capital and capital expenditure. In our announcement on 4 January 2002 the Group confirmed that it remained "optimistic of a successful outcome to the negotiations with its partner in the Far East". We still firmly believe this to be the case. In January 2002, the Group successfully completed a trial for Ghana Water Company Limited and has now tendered for a comprehensive project for a Two-Way Fixed Network System. We await the outcome of this tender. Progress in Ghana has been greatly facilitated by the work already done in South East Asia, and by previous a trial with South Staffordshire Water. Furthermore, our progress in Ghana has been, by comparison to other projects, rapid. This has been as a consequence of the Group seeking to work directly with the end-user rather through intermediaries. "Furthermore, our progress in Ghana has been, by comparison to other projects, rapid". (LOL! Absolutely priceless, yes this was June 02) RNS Number:9819DAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC19 November 2002 However, in Ghana, progress is being made and we believe that we are close to receiving our first order. (of course, of course) RNS Number:8562MAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC27 June 2003. The Group has raised #1.75 million (net of expenses) in two fundraisings in November 2002 and March 2003 by way of convertible loan notes and equity. Development in Ghana has been slow. (Really?) These delays, which were of a commercial nature, have now been resolved and we hope to be able to progress this project.The cash injection from the two recent fundraisings secured the Group's immediate prospects, though the Group's longer term prospects remain significantly dependant on delivery of a major Two-Way contract. Shareholders will be only too well aware that the embryonic Two-Way operation has absorbed considerableresources which has constrained the rest of the Group's business from growing more rapidly. 2003 will be a defining year for the Two-Way business. (It certainly was) RNS Number:1545QAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC25 September 2003 Overall, the Board is confident that the recent lack of output will not disrupt future revenue. Our immediate goal is to have a positive cash flow balance without relying on any revenue contribution from the Two-Way Fixed Network business. RNS Number:0141RAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC17 October 2003 Placing to raise #205,000 in Loan Notes and New Ordinary Shares at 10p per share. RNS Number:7789VAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC24 February 2004 The Company confirms that discussions have continued both with those government officials and senior officials of Ghana Water Company Limited. The executive management involved have satisfied themselves of the final stage nature of these discussions and they have confidence that these discussions should result in a timely satisfactory project outcome. (I think I've heard this before). In addition, the Company is in an advanced phase of negotiation with an electricity utility company in an Asian country in respect of another Two-Way project. This Asian utility has shown every indication of wishing to conclude the formalities on this project with the Company within the very near future, although the Board remains cautious of the outcome of any negotiations until all formalities are completed. Other projects, both Two-Way and One-Way, are also showing good progress. In particular, the Company's business in the One-Way water market in the United States, which was not without its problems in 2003, is now starting to show improvement and progress. While the Company remains optimistic that it will be in a position to enjoy the benefits of the protracted negotiations surrounding the potential Ghana contract, as well as other projects currently under negotiation, the delays encountered in such negotiations once again necessitate the injection of further capital into the Company, (I'm shocked) both to finance the Company's normal ongoing costs, and also to finance specific project costs relating to potential contracts currently under negotiation. Accordingly, the Company have negotiated with the Universities Superannuation Scheme ("USS") already a substantial shareholder in the Company, (fools) and otherparties including certain other existing institutional shareholders, an injection of a further #850,000 into the Company. RNS Number:2586YAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC04 May 2004 Advanced Technology (UK) Plc has raised #800,080 through the placing of 4,444,889 New Ordinary Shares at 5p each ('New Ordinary Shares') at a price of 18 pence per new Ordinary Share. On 24th February 2004, the Company reported that it was in the final stage of discussions regarding the development of its potential Two-Way Fixed Network project in Ghana and was at advanced phase of negotiations with an electricity utility company in respect of another Two-Way project. Although these discussions have taken longer to conclude than previously envisaged (surely not?) both utilities are showing every indication of wishing to conclude the formalities with the Company within the very near future. (At least by 2020). RNS Number:7175ZAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC14 June 2004Re: Suspension ATL announces that it is in the process of transferring its invoice factoring facility to a new factor. The Company has also recently encountered supply difficulties, in respect of two of its principle component suppliers. (how unlucky) This has compromised its ability to draw down funds under its existing factoring arrangement, on which the Company is highly dependent for working capital. ATL continues to await the outcome of the final stages of negotiation of the Ghana2-Way contract. RNS Number:2118AAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC28 June 2004 Advanced Technology (UK) plc announces that it has raised the sum of #650,000 through a placing of 7% conditional convertible loan notes 2007 ("the LoanNotes") arranged by Ruegg & Co Limited with an institutional investor. (more fools) #500,000 of the placing monies has at today's date been drawn down. (don't waste time lads) RNS Number:2890BAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC28 July 2004 The Group experienced a very difficult year. First half manufacturing disruption was overtaken by product quality issues which seriously hurt sales and resulted in a large replacement programme. The Company seriously underestimated the timescale in completing Two-Way contracts in Ghana and Asia, although they are still being progressed. Turnover declined to #5.12 million (2002: #7.63million). At the time of our Interim Statement last September we said we believed that the causes of the manufacturing disruptions in our One-Way business had been eliminated, costs had been removed from the business, and that the Company was confident of securing additional revenues during the final quarter of 2003. Regrettably, this optimism proved wholly misplaced, with significant additional problems surfacing as the year drew to a close. We are enormously conscious of having been over optimistic in our endeavours and in our statements in recent years. (as we are intellectually challenged and don't know how to run a business, but please keep the funds coming) RNS Number:3959BAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC29 July 2004 Name of director GREGORY WORRELL JOHN MORGAN (CHAIRMAN) Description of shares or debentures involved: class, number 1,800,000 ORDINARY SHARES 5P. Exercise price 6P. Name of director ANDREW JOHN CHANNON. Description of shares or debentures involved: class, number 300,000 ORDINARY SHARES 5P. Exercise price (if fixed at time of grant) or indication that price is to befixed at time of exercise6P. (Hey, the more we destroy shareholder value the cheaper our free options get!) RNS Number:8937BAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC12 August 2004 Placing for Cash Ruegg &Co Limited on behalf of ATL, has raised a further #430,750 (#408,250 net of expenses) through a conditional placing of 8,615,000 ordinary shares of 5p each to institutional and other investors at a placing price of 5p per Ordinary Share (mugs) RNS Number:4223DAdvanced Technology (UK) PLC28 September 2004 Turnover in the period to 30 June 2004 fell to #1.58 million from #2.82 million with lack of finance and production constraints adding to the Company's problems. I became Executive Chairman on 1 July 2004. My first role was to secure and rapidly put in place the necessary finance as well as address the management issues. (such as not having any) Our embryonic Two-Way business has still not succeeded in landing the previously much talked about large contracts. (surprise surprise) If you believe a word that comes from this lot you are a bigger fool than the management and that is saying something. At the very least they are incompetent and IMO verging on criminally negligent. How the same company can put out the same misleading/grossly over-optimistic statements over such a long period, albeit with new but equally inept management defies belief. All money put into this company, and there have been many many fundings, has disappeared into a bottomless pit. That institutions keep rescuing it is a testament to the potential of the technology but management is everything in business and this bunch is as clueless as you can get on the LSE. Anyway, I'm thinking of averaging down so I'm worse than them.
themanwithnoname: £5k is peanuts to these guys ...the drop is share price means no further money can be raised ...... These guys are burning £2m every 6 months ......they should have no money now ...reason for share price drop ......IMHO .. This is going belly up .........sorry to state the obvious ..this co has no chance ... I am sorry for shareholders sincerely ...but the last results were the nail on the coffin .....
lord r: Richpoorkid, I assume this contract has been signed a while back and was one of the reasons why investors were prepared to invest.As Edmond has previously mentioned one rule for Institutions and another for ordinary shareholders. A 6 year contract and the biggest to date would imply several millions of dollars but utilities don't always want financial details of contracts being made public.This is unfortunate as a $10 million plus contract for example would immediately affect the share price!! Hopefully with an ex-stockbroker and someone who has actually invested his own money into AVT as well as the share options he will be more geared up to the PR side of things that has been lacking with this Company in the past and hopefully there will be more positive newsflow trickling out over time.But who really knows!!
richpoorkid: EJ, or can someone answer the following qustions: When did the Company announce that they had warranty problems, what contract (date and country) do they relate to, and was the suspension directly, or in major part, due to these warranty problems. Here's Scenario 1: The comapny knows that it acted fraudulently with regard to announcements relating to warranty issues, the lack of which helped fuel the share price move earlier this year. The non-execs (morgan for eg) says he knew nothing. OK. No shareholders go after the board because they need stability in the company in the hope that this will help the company eventually succeed, and therefore profitable again for the shareholder. Here's Scenario 2: The company knows that it acted fraudulently with regard to announcements relating to warranty issues, the lack of which helped fuel the share price move earlier this year. The non-execs (morgan for eg) says he knew nothing. OK. The directors of the comapny are replaced (as EJ wants). Shareholders can then freely go after the directors for fraud without jeopoardising (so much!) the future of the company viz a viz their actions. BUT: the directors squeal and prove that non-exec's (including spotwood and morgan) knew about problems and are therefore equally liable. Oh dear... Scenario 3: Please offer your views... The egm that Bill wants would put the board on notice that they can not escape and will, if not now, then later, what ever happens be called to account. Unless...(unless what? whatever it takes for them to make the company valuable again).
britishbear: Posted from iii (the wicker man) from Feb. as a reminder of why we all got excited in the first place. I have a feeling buyers will begin to drift back into this stock. With only a couple of weeks to wait until the results we could get some good action when the traders appear. ---------------------------------------- I have now found the JAN 2004 Growth Company Investor article in which AVT were recommended as a Speculative Buy at 18.5p. A 100% profit in a month isn't bad although they did originaly recommend the company at £2.30 in June 2000 and sold out at 97p in April 2001.Better luck 2nd time round!? "News of more big contacts from the world's utility companies is eagerly awaited by followers of Advanced Technology following heavy-handed hints from Chairman Greg Morgan in the last statement.Any such announcement should prove a fillip for the shares. AT has developed shortwave radio-based systems that can read water,gas and electricity without the need for them to be checked manually within a customer's premises. Given the trend for both spouses to go out to work these days, more and more houses are empty during the day.With AT's smart technology utilities can still make accurate readings and bill efficiently. The nature of the utility industry means that each contract AT wins stands to contribute significant revenues since utility providers tend to be huge companies with lots of customers. The Company is also working on systems that allow utility companies to charge higher rates during peak usage-and others which customers can inform their utility provider of changes.It also has a product that can prevent fraudulent use of a utility service. Since moving to AIM from OFEX in Spring 2000 via a flotation of £2.50 that raised £8million, AT has experienced a turbulent time.Although turnover rose from £2.44 million three years ago to £7.63 million last year(boosted in part by the acquisition of US rival RAMAR in 2000)losses have persisted. A funding crisis-and an investigation by the US Federal Communications Commission-in 2002 resulted in the shares being suspended for a period.By the beginning the the year, AT had joined the 90% club with its share price down from £3.00 to 8.5p-loss making product development companies were simply not what investors wanted. However, the US regulatory issue was cleared up late last year and, following a series of small placings of shares and loan notes, AT looks to have resolved its funding problems. The last set of figures was still pretty bleak.Turnover for the first half of 2003 fell 44% to £2.8 million and losses rose by a quarter to £2.18 million.But that was down to a one-off shortage of components and a severe winter in the US which delayed orders and installation contracts. Many of those contracts are now starting to come through.One for £500,000 has recently been won with a European utility.The group which has so far focused on servicing water meters is starting to win electricity customers in the US and will shortly lauch a product for the gas industry. Since the interim figures were released at the end of September, the share price has more than doubled.But the company is still only valued at the equivalent of one year's sales. The funding picture should improve markedly, too.Warrants that accompanied the recent fundraising are now "in the money" since the shares trade well above the 10p strike price. This is also the level at which the loan notes can be converted into shares.There is a big incentive for holders of the notes not to ask for their money back but convert into more shares.Although this will dilute existing shareholders, it will make the balance look a whole lot healthier. There are no broker's forecasts for AT and , although the management has said that sales for the final quarter are expected to be strong there is still a speculative quality to the shares.However a punt could prove rewarding."
