the drewster: Confirmation of FST tech in either, both, or ideally ALL might do wonders for the share price going forwards. It's been an unduly long journey, and nothing I originally invested for remains, but it looks like it could be a big winner after all. HUGE potential given the market share, margins, and relationships.
the drewster: Usual sedate share price reaction. With Google's voice activation devices out, we ought to have a feel now for full year.
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!
felix1: I get your point about the options, but they are just options. The additional shares aren't issued unless the options vest, which usually means the recipient or company has to achieve a certain goal. In this case I believe someone reported that the options are at 160p so they won't be exercised unless the price exceeds that. After a 70%+ rise in the share price will we worry so much about a few percent extra shares being issued? On the other hand it's also an indication of where the Directors hope to get the share price. Though 'hope' doesn't mean certainty of course.
birkenhead: With no contracts for over 3 months and a dubious strategy of scavenging for the few crumbs left by Amazon & Apple, shareholders & Mr. Market seem to have lost the will to live as the share price flat-lines at less than 2.5p from 10.25p - but at least AS & JA are enjoying their bloated salaries & undeserved options. In a futile attempt to ease the pain & relieve the tedium, I give you: The Ballad of Johnny Apps Come and listen to a story 'bout a man not named Jed Poor accountant always kept us in the red Then one day he was “working”; for Toumaz, And up from the board come a bungling award (Options that is, black money, Toumaz tea) Well the first thing you know old Johnny's a millionaire ‘Kin BoD said Sensium move away from there Said FST is the place AS & JA oughta be So they backed up the truck and they awarded themselves some more (Options that is, swimming pools full, mega farce) Well now it's time to say goodbye to Johnny and all his ‘kin (... BoD) They would like to thank you fools for kindly paying in You're all invited back again to this 9am AGM immorality To have a mumbling helping of their self-serving hospitality (Frontier Smart Technologies, that's what they call 'em now, NOT Nice folks… Y'all wake up now, ya hear?)
birkenhead: Mr Market still says ‘up to 2.5p/100p and that’s yer lot!’ There’s precious little of substance in the trading update's usual AS waffle (cynically issued to evade AGM board lynchings?) apart from our Norway hallelujah. It is sickening that our major shareholders have not insisted on a statement of intent to maximise shareholder value by curbing AS & JA’s blatantly excessive salaries & undeserved share options – only another 64p to go before they stick their snouts in OUR trough again and hog £1.2m & £592,000 of OUR money, respectively :-( What a shame that they were not ‘taking a prudent view’ of looking after our share price, £58 million in raised funds and Sensium crown jewels while they were prudently enriching themselves. Incidentally, with his savvy punt of 2,438,019 shares, Luc Van Schil will have been given Sensium for free when the share price rises only about 53p above his purchase price :-( If Johnny ‘discontinued business’ Apps is not going to apologize, resign, be dismissed or give back his share options for his latest bungling incompetence, he could at least do the decent thing, join us plebs, and actually BUY a lot more shares to boost his shameless, paltry holding.

birkenhead: hTtps:// “FST is an investment, I do not expect to see silly prices.” (‘venty) So we should protect and maximise the shareholder returns from our investment. FST is not a benevolent money tree for AS & JA to shake down. 90p is a ‘silly’ price that would never have happened if AS & JA hadn’t failed to deliver anything after siphoning off over £500,000 for each of the last 4 years. The fish rots from the CEO’s greedy head and even a stopped clock delivers more than AS & JA. Look again at how the directors’ remuneration jumped with the Sensium fund raising in 2012-13. With £55m & Sensium gone, it is criminally insane to continue 'doing a Leeds' and letting the parasitic directors rob us shareholders of our profits and share price gains: The remuneration of the Directors for 2015 in £’000 (2014-2011 in £’000) 2015 (2014 13 12 11) A Sethill 302 (258 320 140 -) = £1.02m. £140,000 in 2012 was for 5 months J Apps 246 (242 240 28 -) CFO = £756,000. £28,000 in 2012 was for less than 2 months M Knight 37 (30 32 – 10) C Batterham 30 (30 30 13 -) P Stephansen – (- - 84 77) CFO - Yes, CFO should be paid £77,000 NOT £246,000! Remuneration Committee 1. Membership 1.1. The committee shall comprise at least three members, all of whom shall be independent Non-Executive Directors. Remuneration Committee Chairman: Dr Martin Knight Members: Mr Chris Batterham How exactly are the above two turkeys 'independent'? What,if anything, do they do for shareholders? Why are they paid £30,000 instead of £10,000?
birkenhead: “Anthony Sethill buying shares can only be a good thing and suggests optimism.” Really? Let’s take a closer look at the facts. AS bought 50,000 shares for just under £40,000. Total number of shares in issue as at 19 January 2017: 42,748,464, so he bought about 0.094% of the company – that’s less than one tenth of one percent. However, on the very same day (what a coincidence!), he was miraculously gifted 750,000 share options or 15 times the amount he bought. The other directors didn’t even spend a penny but JA was gifted 370,000 share options and paying shareholders will suffer a 6% dilution. If the share price only crawls up to 160p (‘The options become exercisable providing the share price has been greater than 160 pence’) in the next 10 years (it was £4.10 when he became CEO in 2012!), AS will still get £1.2m & JA £592,000 on top of the £1.02million & £756,000 they were paid from 2012-2015 in salaries (before bonuses) AND their salaries for 2016 and beyond, but those who bought shares at £4.10 (10.25p) in July 2012 will still be holding massive losses and less than 40% of their original investment, thanks to AS. The sickening reality is that AS buying shares is meaningless and suggests only a despicable smokescreen to hide the fact that AS & JA have wangled fortunes for themselves at the expense of shareholders!
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."
