A.Fewbob, I expect that I have a little more knowledge and experience and game than yourself. IP that doesn't generate cash flow is worth nothing. In Ilika's case, it's IP consumes cash flow on an annual basis. Hence its IP is worth less than nothing. And they will need to place to raise funds again because once again they are running out of cash. JakNife

It all comes down to the whether the technology the company is pursuing is going to be successful and whether you believe the management of the company has it in them to build up the company IF the tech succeeds. Sadly, I've come to the conclusion that the answer to both those questions is no. Not that you can't make solid state lithium batteries. You can. But scaling them up to, say 3 Watt cells is another matter. And if they did? What have they got that Panasonic won't be able to emulate? The company is run by accountants!

While what you post, Jack, is true it is irrelevant. The key judgement to make is about the risk against the potential reward of making large amounts of money from a step advance in technology. In my view the potential rewards are an order of magnitude greater than the risk. If yourself and Stockopedia think differently that is your prerogative.

malnu, Perhaps you would like to enlighten me? Because all I can see is a company with a track record of over-promising and under-delivering. I'm more than happy to re-post my comments as a list and perhaps you can identify which particular fact that I've written that ires you so much? 1. Stockopedia have it down as a "Sucker Stock" 2. it's forecast to lose money next year 3. and has burnt cash every year since it came to market 4. Plus it's running low on cash again so a placing seems imminent. Feel free to post facts but I have little tolerance for childish name calling. JakNife

Why? What's the attraction? Stockopedia have it down as a "Sucker Stock", it's forecast to lose money next year and has burnt cash every year since it came to market. Plus it's running low on cash again so a placing seems imminent.

hb - Dyson has already said he'll continue work on the batteries, because they could be useful in his other products. Implies to me they're not a commercial proposition yet, and of course may never be. It's a hard nut to crack.

Have a different take: Dyson probably pulled out because of both, although they’re related. Sakti3 strikes again :) Proves that there are barriers to entry and financial muscle is not the only or deciding factor. Experience & tech capability mean more. Dyson & IKA are 2 different animals. One has revenue & profits and probably had a culture shock seeing a lot of cash being spent on something that generates nothing immediately. IKA don’t have that pressure as such (sometimes to our annoyance) and have just a single purpose. Not sure anyone would be interested in using Dyson batteries (if they exist) if Dyson wasn’t. The news is positive for IKA as it shows that every T D & H can’t just jump in. Maybe the “team” aspect mentioned by KJ is indeed a crucial factor

Dyson has pulled out of his electric car project either because his batteries didn't work or because the economics of the whole project didn't stack up. I hope it was the latter because if his batteries didn't work it is bad news for IKA, who has only a fraction of the financial muscle to make theirs work. If, on the other hand, his batteries do work and the project was pulled for economic reasons then his batteries will still be in competition. It will be interesting to see whether he continues the battery project or not. Imo the Dyson battery project will continue.

Yep, Unlike Musk, Dyson has a brain. If you have a cash generating business, why would you invest in a cut throat low margin saturated business where you are competing against established giants like VW, Nissan, Toyota, etc etc. Very bad business decision made to go into that!!!!!!

Thanks, very interesting and nice to note that I was correct in saying that the main obstacle was finding a cheap manufacturing process for Ilikas Goliath battery concept. So, they are going down the printing route. I imagine it might be some kind of 3D process??? Exciting times!! Prototype would see IKA rocket.

I fear my view of the vids on their website is that there is no substantive detail at all. But, perhaps that is to be expected. Look. I don't wish to sound completely negative as it is just possible that, ahead of the scores of major labs doing similar work worldwide, this parochial team has managed to leapfrog other, much better financed groups and are in the process of producing a better battery of higher efficiency and safety etc. If so, it is surprising the world's money men haven't caught on yet. Beware of chasing dreams.

Wow, It’s only you and me left on this stock!! Yeah, your right. I guess the market was just thinking about the extra costs!! This is a gamble no doubt, but the second they release a prototype (if), the stock will fly. It’s just a shame we have absolutely no way of knowing what they have under wraps. They have been working on this for years, there whole business model is based on the ability of being able to rapidly test new materials. So with any luck, they have something with potential they are working on. We will see.
