How do you know that the Nokia antenna has been built? I thought it was in development.

Estienne-you are asking the question I am asking myself. They were asked to develop the antenna for Nokia and now they have completed it. So how many are needed and at what price and margin? The unknown and more's the pity-I haven't a clue!

Is Mrs Dixon part of the Dixon family builders in Maldon ? That's an investment of almost 2.5 million.

I thought the Nokia China announcement might have rubbed off on ftc.

Yes I should have been clear on the open offer. However it still increased the number of shares in circulation.

She-ra, by posting 4 links you have made it look as though there have been 4 fundraisings, but surely the open offer in late 2015 was allied to the institutional placing a few months earlier. Sorry to split hairs, but I think it is only right that readers of this board are given the true facts.

Thanks she-ra, I stand corrected on there being earlier fund-raises and agree therefore at face value it appears a regular event. So there certainly is that risk if they need more capex, to support the 5G growth. It seems to me though not that big a risk, given that they have been nicely cash generative over the last 18months and at the last count had £3m on the balance sheet. FWIW I'm watching rather than holding at this stage as I'd like to see some evidence of the growth materialising before considering investing, the possibility of a further fund-raise (even if imho remote) just adds to my caution in that respect.

In 2015 (alongside a move from the main market to AIM) they did a placing of 90M shares and an open offer to existing shareholders of 20M shares both a 5p. Market price at the time was somewhere around 7-8p I think. This more than doubled the shares in issue. Just off the top of my head I cannot see anything significant prior to that and certainly nothing since, so unless I missed something, it's a bit of stretch to suggest this is a regular event. Doing things in partnership (eg the Nokia colaboration) may well reduce the risk of needing to raise cash too. So whilst you can never rule out the need to raise cash for capex, it doesn't seem that likely imho.

she-ra When was the last cash call, the amount raised and purpose? Are you able to provide a link to let us all see what you are referring to? Many thanks

pictureframe - It has a cash call every few years. Its almost cyclical with this company. They will probably need money to invest in new tech be that R&D or acquisition for 5G. They did it with 4G.

Interested as to why people on here are talking about another cash call? Its a profitable business without debt !

Then there is a second RNS quoting the same total shares as the first RNS but very different percentages. I'm truly baffled, as often I am!!

Interesting RNS re the Newlands just published. It would appear to be that the Newlands have just taken out a long spread bet!! Struggling to understand it...!!

MIMO isn't just for 5G, it's for crowded bandwith and coverage boosting now. It is likely to be necessary for 5G. So, it wont be 5 years for this to become 'useful'. Not a holder as I think they'll need funding again, but on my watch list and rightly so, a lot of potential here.

Sales 5 years away? I cannot imagine FTC doing this work for free! Filtronic and Nokia develop FDD-LTE massive MIMO antenna product Leeds, UK - April 04, 2018 - Filtronic has collaborated with Nokia to develop a massive MIMO (multiple input/multiple output) antenna. The next generation, dual-band FDD-LTE antenna is designed to integrate Nokia AirScale radios in a 16T16R configuration and is based on Filtronic proprietary designs, allowing rapid product development. Massive MIMO incorporates beamforming techniques that yield increased spectral efficiency, which significantly increases network capacity in both uplink and downlink. The efficiency gains from massive MIMO products provide a compelling business case for Mobile Network Operators and are a major step in the development of dense 5G networks. Rob Smith, CEO, Filtronic commented, "We are delighted Nokia has chosen to work with Filtronic on this prestigious development. Our ultra wide band antenna and filter related IP are being used in this design and are a proven fit with the acclaimed Nokia AirScale radios." About Filtronic: Filtronic plc (AIM: FTC) is a specialist RF communications company, providing a range of antenna, filter and mmWave products to the telecoms and critical communications industries.

Not sure this will take 5yrs to generate revenue, 5g tests already ongoing and Nokia have MIMO trials on current networks with Sprint and China mobilewww.pcworld.com/article/3174355/mobile/nokia-sprint-show-a-massive-mimo-antenna-to-boost-cell-service.amp.htmlThe wording is interesting in the rns, has collaborated rather than will collaborate.
