john09: “Stronger thsn H1” well yeah otherwise we are screwed! Still gives them a get out to say yeah it’s not returning as fast as we expected ! They also said the next country for DAB - FM switch is Switzerland from memory in 2020-2024 ! Doesn’t bode well for H2 2018! It’s newsflow on products that will get the share price moving I think. There was some snippet about a chip going into mass production. I just wish there were some tie ups anounced Sonos sound bar is out in anew version with Alexa in it. So who’s won that business because it’s not FST unless I’ve missed something ? And those sonos sound bars are superb The tie ups announced with speaker companies apart from one or two have been second rate producers and brands which I’m sure will sell in the developing world but I’m n of buying a memorex or Altec Lansing speaker with Alexa . I want B&O , Sonos, Sony, etc
birkenhead: Sorry but £4.10 to 44p, 67p or 69p is no laughing matter. The 3 stooges on the 'independent' remuneration committee must be removed and replaced by rational people (preferably shareholders)who are genuinely interested in maximising shareholder value. Mumbles Sethill and Johnny Appetites both have contracts paying them 6 months for termination. This must be changed to 1 month max. What, if anything, does JA contribute to earnings? He is a luxury we cannot afford and the fact that he only holds a few shares is disgraceful. Bye, bye Johnny is long overdue. Institutional shareholders should force Sethill to justify his existence & produce monthly progress reports for sustained profitability and getting the share price back to £4.10+ asap. It would be nice if Patrick could simply replace the greedy, mumbling malignancy instead of slashing R&D.
birkenhead: 44p to 67p? Hurrah! Mumbles and Appetites have increased the share price by over 50%, so BoD salary increases, bonuses and share options all round! Let the shareholders all eat cake! Hurrah! What? The share price was 410p when they started? We had Sensium and £58 million in funds? You cannot be serious...
mark4231: Nice announcement but the money is getting this integrated into the third party products and those products selling. When will that happen? Will it happen? I see that Google have launched a premium speaker - Google Home Max - but then that sort of product tramples over third party products. How much of a market is there for third party products? A year ago I was bullish on FST, but sold out when the share price crashed down to 80p or so - lack of faith in the management. I'm monitoring to buy back in but am nervous, not helped by the wide spread.
john09: That’s 3 little bits of news that haven’t been RNSd. I wonder if we will have a pop up soon. The other poster is right, when things were going well news like that was causing 10-20% daily share price rises and that’s when the share price was north of £1.50!
nod: The Alexa news would have sent the share price sharply up in H2 2017. Today it doesn't trigger a single purchase. There may be a realisation that smart audio is a highly competitive market. Unless FST can develop some unique IP we may be a small player in this market.
birkenhead: Frontier collaborates with NXP on new Smart IoT software licensing business London, 29 August 2018 Frontier Smart Technologies, a pioneer in digital audio solutions, announces the launch of a new Smart IoT software licensing and services business line. The first collaborator in this venture is leading silicon manufacturer, NXP® Semiconductors. Frontier is providing its fully featured SmartSDK and design services to major brands and ODMs who are developing voice-enabled smart devices. Frontier’s SmartSDK is a mature starting point for the development of reliable and sophisticated networked devices and can be deployed in a range of IoT systems including smart audio, home automation, smart appliances and security. Frontier’s SmartSDK has already been successfully deployed as part of the company’s turnkey solutions in over 20 smart audio IoT products incorporating Google’s Chromecast platform and Google Assistant. Now Frontier is offering its SmartSDK as a standalone software proposition. In conjunction with licensing the SmartSDK, Frontier is also providing software design services to help customers bring their smart products to market quickly and cost-effectively. To strengthen the appeal and flexibility of its software proposition, Frontier is working with NXP to port its SmartSDK to NXP’s recently announced i.MX 8M Mini, a new quad core SoC optimized for customers adding voice assistants such as Google Assistant and Alexa to smart home products. The i.MX 8M Mini brings high compute efficiency and security to a range of edge node computing, streaming multimedia and machine learning applications. NXP’s i.MX 8M Mini includes several innovative features which will enable substantial improvements to battery life for voice assistants. It also offers strong support for multi-channel audio products such as soundbars. Anthony Sethill, Chief Executive Officer, Frontier Smart Technologies, said: I have been a greedy barsteward and am reducing my bloated salary by 90% in line with the share price collapse I am responsible for. Furthermore, Johnny Appetites and I are returning the unmerited bonuses and share options we looted from shareholders' pockets.......oops, not really. “The launch of our Smart IoT licensing and services business is an important development for Frontier and its customers. The Smart IoT sector is highly competitive, and it is essential that we offer brands the maximum flexibility in designing and launching new products. The combination of our SmartSDK with NXP’s i.MX 8M Mini provides a compelling proposition to the smart IoT market.” Martyn Humphries, Vice President of i.MX Applications Processors for Consumer and Industrial Markets at NXP, said: “The i.MX 8M Mini processor brings together the high-performance compute, power efficiency, and embedded security required for smart IoT and other consumer and industrial applications. Our collaboration with Frontier, with its proven capability in digital audio and extensive relationships across the sector, provides a powerful and effective new route to market for this family of processors.”
p1nkfish: Some thoughts. Where is their pricing power? Paul Taylor - might have been added at behest of larger holders to offer some true idependence on remuneration. Amazon etc - they like data. Data is their lifeblood and the gift that keeps on giving once hardware is installed. Not at all convinced they like hardware, it's a loss leader. In other words, hardware is a disgusting business to ship into vs these companies. A fools game for quite a while until they have enough installed base and then there might be a chance. When? DAB is relatively ok until volumes really take off and the likes of some larger semiconductor company (TI, Dialog etc) muscle in or buy FST. We don't know what management have told larger shareholders behind closed doors. It does happen. Sell-off may have been on disappointment vs image painted in private. SmartHome = commodity. Outside of some volume potential, I don't see too much pricing power or reliable recurring revenue to bank on. However, acquisition target and one to watch. Recover unlikely to be quick. I've bought into others with similar dynamics and share price performance in the past and nearly always too early!
nod: Loc, entrapment. The few shares I owned in TMZ fell so much that the converted shares in FST were hardly worth selling. I hope we may yet benefit from Sensium sales or the on-sale of that company. FST DAB has long held a market leading position and has good sales, yet profits for shareholders have been elusive. Smart Audio has undoubted sales potential but the history of DAB makes me suspect there will be no profits for shareholders. This is not a company run for shareholders. I am hopeful that Smart Audio hype will late this year pump up the share price beyond 200p. I missed the exit before the slide down in January.
iamnoone: The cautious nature of forward looking statements is a correct one. We do not know the exact numbers of 3rd party smart speakers will be sold. However, it is clear FST have won 10 design wins for the google voice assistant speakers that will start shipping in the 2nd half of 2018, but it all depends how well the 3rd party manufacturers do in selling them. We also know that there are 20 models out there that use the Google Chromecast technology. The R&D expenditure is necessary to get Amazon's Alexa and Airplay 2. I don't really see how FST can get around by cutting costs and get things done on the cheap. I would rather lose money to a company that tells it like it is than to lose money to some fraudsters who pump up the share price for short gain. You just need to look at Cloudtag. I admit, it has taken FST too long to get to this point and I think they should rightly be challenged on this.
