£0.88M at 4.75p to keep the lights on.

Very disappointed in HDD we were assured it was on a positive trajectory.

They didn't even have the decency to announce it as a 7am RNS.

They are additionally seeking £250k of debt funding, so it will be interesting to see what terms they get that on.

One of the worst examples of a share being run in the interests of the BOD with almost zero regard for shareholders. For almost 20 years now. Abysmal shareholder value destruction during that time.

8 February 2024 - Hardide plc ("Hardide", "the Group" or "the Company")

Interim CEO appointment

Hardide plc (AIM: HDD), the provider of advanced surface coating technology, is pleased to announce the appointment of Stephen (Steve) Paul as Interim Chief Executive Officer with effect from 12 February 2024. Steve will succeed Philip (Phil) Kirkham who, as announced on 1 November 2023, is stepping down after leading the Company for over 11 years.

Steve had a successful 30-year international career in various managing director, commercial development and performance improvement roles for the leading global surface treatment business, Praxair Surface Technologies, now part of the Linde Group. Since 2018, Steve has led his own consultancy business, Sketchley GmbH, where he has advised a number of coatings companies, including Hardide, on strategic, business development and operational improvement projects. Steve has a Master's degree in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of Sheffield.

Steve has been working with Hardide for a number of months already on the development of sales of coated consumable parts to be supplied direct to end use customers. Steve will serve as CEO and join the Board of Hardide for an interim period of up to six months, after which it is intended he will continue to work with the Group on further international business development opportunities.

Accelerating revenue growth, with a focus on near-term sales potential for increased regular base load business is a key to the delivery of Hardide's strategy. Steve's appointment to this role will help drive this strategy forward, building on the foundations laid by Phil, ahead of the expected appointment of a permanent CEO later in the year.

Andrew Magson, Non-Executive Chair, commented: "We are delighted that Steve Paul is joining us as interim CEO. His broad leadership and commercial experience in the surface treatment industry will be invaluable to Hardide as we refine and focus our strategy to accelerate revenue growth, whilst helping realise a number of exciting near-term sales opportunities that Steve is already working on with us.

Everyone at Hardide is extremely grateful to Phil Kirkham for his strong leadership of the Group over many years. He has built an excellent platform for growth. We all wish Phil well for the future.

I am pleased that the process of recruiting a new permanent CEO for Hardide has identified a number of talented individuals who, like Steve, share the Board's belief in the exciting opportunities to further commercialise Hardide's unique coatings technology and the potential for the Group to generate significant value for all stakeholders over the medium to longer term."

[Stephen John Paul (Age 60)]

Has everybody here given up in disgust?

I question the logic of an RNS announcing the 'need to fundraise £1m' in the next month or two. Surely these things should be worked on and then announced once in place?

Instead we get the 20-30% drop based on a profit warning, coupled with the uncertainty of a £1m fundraise in the next 1-2 months.

£1m is a big old fundraise in current markets and when delivered with a profit warning.

I'm not sure the rev projections are going to met either.

Group revs in 4 months to 31 January 2024 were £1.3m.
Yet they forecast FY24 revenue to be broadly in line with FY23 (£5.5m).

That's a heavy back-loaded year of revenue they are predicting. £1.3m done in 4 months. £4.2m to do in 8 months. Or £2.1m per 4 month period.

It's great that aerospace is finally growing but when your rev mix looks like this that's not a huge consolation:

Energy: 63% (including oil & gas and power generation)
Industrial: 30%
Aerospace: 7%

The HCP phase out has been talked about for a long time, but given the REACH regulations have an end date of April 2024 for those chemicals it is surprising HDD aren't seeing a surge in demand and instead are seeing the opposite. I wonder why that is.

Very good improvement on margins. That's the main positive I can see.

Finally they project at what levels they will be profitable at.

However, what they don't project is how long it will take them to get there. Could still be a few years at this rate.

nestoframpers, I think it suits the end user industries to let HDD do it all for them, perhaps if it looked like HDD were going to fold, only then would one of the big boys step in, because they need the technology but don't seem to want to pay a sensible price to use it?

The tech could be in every engine made, every bearing in every machine, creating machines that effectively wouldn't wear out. But plainly that wouldn't suit mass producers of machines. I guess therein lies the problem, the difficulty of finding a mass market for the technology?

I have never been referred to as a "silent fart" before; yet at current share price levels HDD will surely come up trumps.

CANACCORD GENUITY GROUP INC are reducing their holding in HDD.
This is providing excellent liquidity on the buy side with good size available at 11.3p.
How/why did CANACCORD GENUITY GROUP INC become such significant holders and is there any significance to be drawn from their current disposals ?
I am considering investing into HDD in view of the evidence of some traction, the refreshed Bod, the widening acknowledgement of HDD's patented (through to 2038) technology and of course the low share price

Thanks to nick100 ... "For example, development is progressing well and at a swift pace for the use of Hardide-T coating on components used in the production process of lithium-ion (Li-ion) rechargeable batteries. These are commonly used in electric vehicles"

So the line about EVs was not for vehicle components it was for tooling for EV Li-ion battery cell manufacture, I'm guessing it is Tesla. So Johnwise we understand HDD are not talking about substantial volumes of vehicle components. (Cue another anonymous downthumb and threats to filter).

Nevertheless it is good to read how pro-actively HDD are going about marketing the benefits and potential applications of its coatings. Not just sitting back waiting for the benefits of deals with Airbus and Lockheed Martin, cleverly targetting future growth industries, listening to requirements and developing solutions. Already done the hard bit of investing in capacity, barriers to competition in place. Very happy with how HDD is being managed.

The HDD share price is deflated but these are indeed what someone describes as bottom-draw shares, filed away for the long term.
