Does this mean that if he grants himself ten times more, the share price will go up to 340p or down to 3.4p? I can never work it out ☺.

I see IKA sneeked in an RNS after closing bell last night. Graeme Purdy now owns almostt 3% of Ilika !!!

If you really want to know, there's no point asking here - contact the company. I'm told Graeme Purdy is usually pretty helpful.

SN, thanks. Hopefully it will be 2-way.

That's what I was thinking. If Toyota can build a car battery, how could IKA not build a (smaller) phone battery? The tech is shared/identical isn’t it? Am I missing something? -------------------- YES -------------------- “Yes” to the 1st, 2nd or 3rd question? Pls elaborate. Always happy to be brought up to speed.

It might only be shared in one direction - if Toyota have independently found a way of stacking these batteries, I'm not sure they would be obliged to inform Ilika.

Ilika would benefit in some way, does it not prove ilika's concept?

Rog, if you didn't delete all your posts after a few days then you'd be able to prove that. I was probably ridiculing that rather than what you said. You also appeared to dislike positive remarks then switching to posting them as I suspect on badly timing your dealing, I'm pretty sure you sold at a loss and are now not holding. On announcing a deal the shares would be marked up so much. If you believe strongly in what you invest in timing it before the herd arrives can be very profitable. I have traded this share so that I have a free float but am looking to buy more as i still believe in the story, I just have to decide whether now and how much to commit. The shares are very cheap if the licensing comes off. The fact you are still here suggests you want to too, if say a deal is announced tomorrow do you think you would get in under 60p? 50 maybe?

Big7time, I did tell you to avoid these until a license was signed and you ridiculed me.

Toyota have royalty free rights over everything they've done with IKA, and IKA retain rights to exploit with other customers, including Toyota rivals. However, it appears from the little I've read that other Auto mfrs are ploughing their own furrow in solid state, which is perhaps a reflection of IKA IP strength and value.

hb, excellent, that's very helpful. Hadn't realised that you were at the investor day at their "factory". You might recall me pressing them then on my doubts in relation to series stacking, although my concerns were based upon how they made connections without introducing increased leakage paths. The series connection stack was a key USP, but it may well be possible to come up with a decent engineered solution to larger externally connected cells. Of course they're limited in resource, and maybe the resource isn't always focused in the right direction [that's perhaps unfair, as it's easier to say with hindsight]. Management also needs to be more open, which is a difficulty of being a listed company involved in cutting edge development.

BG, I too remember that their "roadmap" was a progression from micro-cells to phone/laptop, to automotive/grid storage. This was from about two and a half years ago when they held investor days down at Southampton. The idea was that having already made a working prototype of a solid state battery which had excellent qualities, it was only a matter of time until they produced a "double-stacked" cell which would be the start of the journey towards larger and larger batteries. They claim to have produced a double-stack cell but admitted that it was extremely difficult technically since it meant laying down new layers on top of the first cell at very high temperatures (400 degC, I think). This often had the effect of destroying the first cell. When asked what progress was being made on this, they reluctantly admitted that they could not spare time on the chip machine for this research because it was fully utilised on the Stereax line (for customer product development). They only have one, six-inch chip machine. They were asked about getting another one. It seems this is not on the cards. The tie up with Toyota MAY produce some income if Toyota use any of IKA's tech, and that's IF they ever produce solid state, Lithium batteries. Although Toyota is one of the biggest car makers in the world I think it unlikely they will ever owe Ilika any royalties on THIS technology...(but maybe on some other tech). The main problem is that Ilika's method of manufacturing batteries does not lend itself to double stacking and is therefore unlikely ever to be used for anything but the smallest cells, but hey, there may be a vast market for just that! When the media comes up with a better name than the purile "Internet of Things", we might make some progress. In the meantime, Ilika has an excellent product that it is waiting for the world to produce a market for. I still hold IKA shares.

OK, thanks. Will look into this further, but my suspicion (having not held or been involved for some time) is that the direct series stacked connection didn't work as they expected. I couldn't see how it would, however, I don't think that's necessarily a dead-end in terms of larger applications.

I believe their batteries need to be PCB solder mounted too which isn't what i had expected.

Rogk - wasn't asking for confirmation of whether he was correct in his assertion - just wanted a bit more detail around what was said. I understand they've quite a bit of focus on micro-medical/industrial, but is there something they've found and commented upon that rules out larger scale. They've c.£5m in the bank in April. They do have a prolific burn rate, that needs to be reduced, but a further raise will not be a significant issue if they are gaining traction, and they do operate in just about the most attractive sector currently. They are clearly struggling to make the most of the opportunity however!

horneblower is correct AND they need a license badly. Another fund raising H1 2018 otherwise.

horneblower (haven't seen that name since Burren!) - interested in your comment about the batteries only being destined for micro-cells. What was said at the investor meeting in that regard? Previously the Co have talked about a progression from micro-cells to phone/laptop, to automotive/grid storage. In recent results they seemed to indicate that this technology had only ever been thought of as being for micro. That seemed to make sense, as I've always felt the production opex and capex costs were too high. Did they give some more detail around this area? The recent Toyota publicity (but not a formal Toyota announcement) indicates that they're serious about using the same family of solid state batteries for automotive in 2022. While five years away, it's not that far off and they've need to have proper scale prototypes working in the next couple of years, and would need to have a very clear vision of the technology and costs NOW. So, anyway, interested in what was said.

You obviously weren't at the recent investor presentation. That being said, there is no reason that Ilika's micro batteries won't produce a sustainable business.
