savagedstock: It is interesting to read the posts on here - the technology is uncertain as no one really knows how the market will play out, or even if graphene itself will be superseded by a new material. What we DO know is 1) HAYD is making huge losses 2) Cash burn is high and on current trajectory has only a few months left 3) the CEO has zero credibility, and even less now with a share price some 30% below the last placing 4) new money will be required, and at what price 50p, 40p or 10p? 5) there is little chance of HAYD being acquired as they have little IP of any value. It is now about how long they can limp along, which is hardly what you expect from an allegedly rapidly growing tech company...
timbo003: grabster, I agree with your second paragraph. Sentiment is not on Haydale's side at the moment and some investors are certainly getting impatient, as evidenced by the recent weakness in the share price. As Ed Stacy suggests, should graphene become commoditized, it is likely to be the companies which can add value who will be well positioned and as it stands, Haydale seem to be in a good position to do that. Should such a situation arise, then it is more likely to be the graphene producers and in particularly those who do not have their own source of high quality graphite who are the ones who are most likely to be squeezed. This could be further exacerbated if the lithium battery market grows as fast as predicted, as they would then also be in competition for graphite with the battery manufacturers.
savagedstock: Post 534 is the most salient on here....the only update on that is how will they be able to raise cash at a share price markedly lower than their last raise....and who will they con to do it....this is not a company but a third rate project that will end up in liquidation
cheek212: What's occurring with the share price today????
timbo003: I have mentioned Talga Resources on here from time to time as they are partnered with Haydale providing the GNPs for at least some of Haydale's work with composites, for example the aileron aerospace projects. Their share price (and quoted share options) are doing rather well at the moment, so no funding problems for Talga to deliver on developing their all important Graphite mines and Graphene pilot plant production facilities which will be required to supply Haydale and Haydale's partners (such as Huntsman) with the required production feedstock.
timbo003: Given the recent strength in the share price, the open offer shares look a steal. Accordingly I have over-subscribed (by a factor of 4) fully expecting to get scaled back. We should hear about the open offer allocations sometime tomorrow
timbo003: The share price for Directa Plus has continued its upward trajectory and has now more than doubled to stand at around 180p The Market Cap for Directa Plus is now around £80M (Haydale £26M) The Directa Plus Aim Admission document is an interesting read, especially the section on the competitive landscape (see below). I will quiz the Haydale management about that at the forthcoming Haydale Investor day on June 22nd 10. COMPETITION There are many organisations involved in graphene research and production, ranging from university spinouts and other small start-ups through to large multinational corporations. The Directors believe that the Group’s competition can be split into two groups, direct and indirect. Direct competition comes from companies working to directly supply and/or functionalise GNP’s, or products incorporating GNP’s, to the market. Indirect competition comes in the form of alternative competing technologies working to penetrate the market for similar commercial applications to those which the Group is focused. Direct competitors producing GNP’s include the US-based companies Angstron Materials, Inc., Vorbeck Materials Corporation, Inc. and XG Sciences, Inc.. These three companies are involved in the commercialisation of graphene technology, using top-down production methods that rely on the exfoliation of mined graphite. Angstron Materials, Inc. has a facility located in Dayton, Ohio and is focused on energy storage applications of graphene. Vorbeck Materials Corporation, Inc. is a specialty materials company which manufactures and supplies graphene, primarily for the electronics industry. Vorbeck Materials Corporation, Inc. was founded in 2006 and licenses its technology from the University of Princeton. In October 2012, Vorbeck Materials Corporation, Inc. increased the production capacity of its facility located at Jessup, Maryland to 40 t/a. XG Sciences, Inc. was founded in 2006 and manufactures and sells GNP’s for use in advanced materials and energy applications. In the UK, the main competitors that the Directors are aware of are Haydale Graphene Industries plc (Haydale), Applied Graphene Materials Plc (AGM) and Thomas Swan & Co Limited. Haydale works on functionalising graphene using its HDPlas™ process and their current focus appears to be the addition of functionalised graphenes within resin and composite materials as well as graphene-based inks and coatings that can be used in smart packaging, printed batteries, electrochemical sensors, flexible displays and potentially in touch screens. AGM has developed a proprietary bottom-up process for the production of graphene and their current focus appears to be on inks and coatings as well as composites. Thomas Swan & Co Limited is working in collaboration with Trinity College Dublin to develop a top-down process to produce graphene. The Directors believe that the Group faces indirect competition from producers of nanomaterials, particularly carbon nanotubes and multi-walled nanotubes, which in some circumstances carry similar performance properties to graphene. Known commercial-scale producers of carbon nanotubes include Arkema SA and Nanocyl NV. Whilst there are multiple companies exploring the commercialisation of graphene, the Directors believe that the Company has a strong competitive position with a production facility that is already capable of producing consistent commercially viable graphene on a commercial scale. In addition, the Directors believe that the GNP’s produced by the Group’s proprietary manufacturing process have unique morphology (high lateral dimension and very low thickness) together with higher crystalline quality leading to a lower proportion of graphite and other contaminants than those derived from alternative production methods, and therefore the Directors believe that the Group’s GNP’s have the potential to deliver a greater improvement in material properties when added to a final product.
timbo003: I'm quite happy with results today too, I hadn't expected Haydale to have progressed quite this far when I first invested at the IPO, so happy to hold and will add a few more in the ISA after April 5th if the share price stays around these levels. On a related subject, there's a new (post results) interview with Ray Gibbs on Directors talk (see link in header)....worth a listen
knownowt: I did, and I am not; the market has given me the opportunity to buy more at a lesser price. To me, the statement is very positive and I continue to hope for great things from my investment. The recent share price performance has been dismal, the under-performance caused by a steady trickle of sales. Understandable in tricky markets when a company has no earnings, but Haydale, though still relatively 'early stage', is being invited to dine at fairly rich tables, such as Huntsman, and the relationship with NATEP has huge potential.
timbo003: The Haydale AGM was held on Wednesday December 3rd at the Offices of the Company’s Solicitors: Field Fisher Waterhouse, 2 Swan Lane, London EC4R 3TT. There were around 20 attendees which included the BOD, around 6 shareholders and a number of AGM functionaries. The Chairman John Knowles kicked off the meeting with a welcome and introductions, this was followed by shareholder questions and then the voting on the resolutions. There were only a few shareholder questions (mostly mine) asked in the formal part of the meeting and I asked several more after the meeting had officially finished. Ray Gibbs (CEO) fielded most of the questions. My main questions concerned the current IP situation and how this might affect the Haydale’s prospects, in particular progress (and possible third part infringments) for Haydale’s two patent applications concerning their current graphene technologies and “know-how” WO2010142953 WO2012076853 I also enquired about other third party patent applications which could potentially restrict Haydale’s freedom to operate. I do not think it is appropriate to go into detail of what was discussed regarding the IP on this public bulletin board, suffice to say that the EPO have so far looked favourably on the Haydale European patent applications. The Haydale BOD appear to be very alert to identifying and protecting any IP which might arise from their development activities. Furthermore they have regular meetings with the company’s patent attorneys (Mewburn Ellis LLP) and IP issues are discussed at every BOD meeting. My concerns regarding Ian Walters and Perpetuus have abated somewhat, based on what was discussed. The Perpetuus web site certainly appears very showy: ...but is it a case of all mouth and no action or deliverables? Has anyone connected with the industry or anyone connected to academic groups working with graphene actually seen any of their product? I don’t know the answer to those questions, but I guess time will tell. As previously pointed out earlier in this thread, The BOD confirmed that Perpetuus do indeed have 5 priority patent applications in the pipeline: The first of which publishes in May 2015 and it remains to be seen exactly what these applications disclose. The BOD seemed more concerned with what other third party Graphene specialists had been up to than with the Perpetuus activities. One company singled out for a mention was Vorbeck, apparently they might have claims on some broad IP concerning one particular graphene application (printing inks?). However, it sounded like Vorbeck’s IP might have more potential to restrict Haydale’s potential customers, rather than Haydale themselves. I asked about future fund raising, the response was that none was envisaged unless an unexpected opportunity came along such as a compelling acquisition. The directors seems perplexed by the low share price and market cap (not far off money in the bank), I opined that some sustained director buying might go some way to fixing that and said that I was tempted to buy some more at these levels, but thought they would go lower before they went higher with a nadir probably at the end of the tax year (due to usual small cap investor end of tax year dynamics, i.e. stale bulls balancing losses on losers with gains on winners to use up CGT allowance). No one seemed to disagree. I asked whether any action was being taken against the previous broker Hume for the chaotic after market following the IPO. The BOD stated that they were reasonably pleased with the money raised and the fall in the share price was due to IW selling off his stake. As far as the BOD were concerned the matter (with Hume) was now closed, although I sensed that some others (shareholders?) may wish to take things further on that issue. Before the meeting finally closed, I had a chance to talk individually to the Technical Director (CS), one of the NEDs (RS), the company broker (PJ) and one other shareholder (CB) all of whom gave me various helpful insights into the company’s history and prospects. It was particularly useful to hear the rationale behind the EPL acquisition, which initially seemed like a change in direction when first announced, but now looks like it is a very good strategic fit with the core graphene business. In conclusion, I’m glad I went along to the AGM. The risk / reward profile is looking increasingly attractive although I suspect the shares will fall further in the next few months. I will therefore look to top up as we approach the end of the tax year in April, but I'll probably keep my powder dry up until then.
