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!
birkenhead: "His wealth of experience as a Non-Executive Director will bring significant value to the Group as we continue to build our position in our core Audio markets and explore opportunities in the Smart Home sector." 'Significant'? Isn't that Sethillspeak for 'peanuts' just as 'modest' is Sethillspeak for 'share price collapse from 200 to 67'? Perhaps Mumbles Sethill and Johnny Appetites could be so kind as to pay for the new gravy train rider from the ridiculous amounts they have looted in totally unmerited bonuses on two occasions and return the rest along with their share options and halving their bloated salaries - greedy, shameless, incompetent a$$holes!
1activeinvestor: Share price looks like the bitcoin bubble trace. As an unintentionally long term holder myself, a change at the top is definitely required. The only thing that exceeds expectation is the consistent under achievement against expectation.
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.
birkenhead: "the extra costs look excessive. First thing I will do when the annual report comes out is look how much the the board have taken out." Agreed. It is disgusting that they are so overpaid for decimating the share price. Mumbles Sethill has shafted us again by tanking our share price from 200 to below 140. It is criminal that his and Johnny App(etite)s' salaries and options are not considerably more 'modest' in line with their consistently abysmal performances. Is it true that the BOD vegetables have been paying themselves 3,000 pounds per meeting? What do they actually contribute, other than dilutions from awarding AS & JA unmerited share options? "Too many jollies and business class flights for my liking." Is there any evidence?
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.
mark4231: I agree. I'm sure that if these announcements were made via RNS then the share price would be much higher now. However, looking on the bright side it gives a chance for those of us in the know to buy in at cheap prices. Once the accounts show the money flowing - that will be visible via an RNS - then the share price will react accordingly.
felix1: On share options from what I can see:• those issued this year have an option price of 78.5p (the price at the time) but only vest if the share price exceeds 160p for at least a month. • those issued in 2014 have an option price of 10p (new money) and vest over a 3 year period from Apr 2017 (or in the 10 years following) provided the share price exceeds 600p (for half the options) or outperforms the FTSE Allshare by between 25% and 50% over the vesting period (for the other half). Complicated but employee option schemes always are. There were options before 2014 which I haven't fully analysed but those above at least aren't a gift: they do have to be earned by getting the share price up. When calculating the cost of options you do have to remember to deduct the option price. On those issued at 78.5p if they reach 160p to vest then the gain is actually 81.5p per option not 160p.
birkenhead: "MMs trying to generate activity?" Sniff, sniff......ah, BS again! A share price collapse of over 10% is more like Mr. Market slashing his expectations for 'materially ahead of expectations' after 3 months of no new contracts & no significant news! "I think the factory-fit car radio segment is the one area FST haven't captured and there is an Asian company addressing that, though I know FST address the after-market. Does anybody know more about this?" Good point but... duh, yes, your good friends AS & JA do. Why don't you phone or email them & see if they'll deign to actually reply & do something to deserve a few of those options? Regarding Loldemort's point about the options, (felix1, are you the pathetic tool that gave him the thumb down?) the criminal insanity of AS & JA gifting themselves (oh, sorry their cohorts on the 'independent' remuneration committee gifting them) 750,000 and 370,000 options, respectively, simply means that they are holding shareholders to ransom and robbing US of OUR higher share price and dividends of £1.79 million just to get the share price back to 160p and £4.592 million to finally get back to the 410p/10.25p they started at before they botched & gave away our Sensium crown jewels.....and on top of their 'hyper-inflated salaries.' As Dr. sweenoid would say, that's a lot of friggin' radios, boyo! 750,000 x 1.60 = £1.2m 370,000 x 1.60 = £0.59m Total = £1.79 million 750,000 x 4.10 = £3.075m 370,000 x 4.10 = £1.517m Total = £4.592 million!
the drewster: How nice it is when a company you hold shares in issue an RNS that really aligns management returns with those of shareholders. Little Avacta came out with this today - such measures should be much more commonplace amongst small caps, Sethill and Apps would instill a little more confidence if they followed suit: Director/PDMR Shareholding Avacta Group plc (AIM: AVCT), the developer of Affimer(R) biotherapeutics and research reagents, announces the following changes to the equity incentives of its Chief Executive Officer, Alastair Smith and its Chief Financial Officer, Tony Gardiner. The two Directors have waived their right to participate in the annual performance bonus awards in respect of the year ended 31 July 2017 and have instead been granted share options under the Avacta Group plc Executive Share Option Scheme. The number of options which have been granted at 72.5p are as follows: -- Alastair Smith - 520,550 options over Ordinary Shares -- Tony Gardiner - 306,000 options over Ordinary Shares They will vest on the third anniversary of the grant at a level of 50% if the share price is in excess of GBP2.00 or at a level of 100% if the share price is in excess of GBP2.50 based on a 30-day average of the closing mid-market share price. Trevor Nicholls, Avacta Group Chairman and Chairman of the Remuneration Committee said: "As we stated in our Trading Update on 20 January the Company has made substantial progress with its Affimer technology, but that has not yet been reflected in the share price. The Board unanimously felt that it is right to strongly align the executives' rewards with those of shareholders. Therefore, the executive directors have waived their involvement in the annual performance bonus awards in favour of longer term equity driven value. This reflects the confidence we have in the future value of the Affimer technology and the team's commitment to delivering it to shareholders."
