crosswires: Agree it’s good news. We must remember that the next leg up for the IQE share price is now about our future markets and the exponentially increasing volume of 8” wafer production and the mass adoption of products that contain Face ID (which is still a top of the market feature) and those that feature micro LED (VR/AR). Lidar of course will be in most cars during the next decade and within the next 5 years alone that market is predicted to grow from $1.5b to $7b. Don’t make the mistake of getting stuck in the past couple of years as an indicator of the potential of iQE. If the past 5 months has taught us anything, it is that Americo Lemos means business… The world is only ever going to need a growing number of semi conductors, and of ever increasing complexity.
guildedge: An existing partnership which ties them in for years? 'IQE announces multi-year strategic supply agreement with Lumentum -- Multi-year, high-volume supply agreement -- Development and production of broad, industry-leading photonics products IQE plc (AIM: IQE, "IQE" or the "Group"), the leading supplier of compound semiconductor wafer products and advanced material solutions to the global semiconductor industry, is pleased to announce the signing of a multi-year agreement with Lumentum for the supply of epiwafers supporting 3D Sensing, LiDAR for automotive, and optical networking applications. Lumentum Holdings Inc., (NASDAQ: LITE, "Lumentum") a market-leading photonics solutions provider, has been a long-term partner of IQE. Effective immediately, the multi-year agreement is focused on high volume production of epiwafers which will be used across Lumentum's portfolio of innovative laser products, in particular to enable LiDAR for autonomous vehicles, where IQE will be the epitaxy partner of choice for this technology. The strong partnership between IQE and Lumentum will also enable leadership across a wider range of cutting-edge technologies such as biometric security, data communications, and extended reality. There is also further provision for multi-year joint research and development initiatives. Americo Lemos, Chief Executive Officer of IQE, commented: "Our partnership with Lumentum is in alignment with our strategy to strengthen our customer relationships and to enter into long-term agreements securing wafer supply. Lumentum and IQE are industry leaders in the 3D Sensing space, and this partnership is underpinned by IQE's unrivalled technology portfolio. We look forward to our continued collaboration and expansion of our business relationship into new market segments." Alan Lowe, Chief Executive Officer of Lumentum, added: "I am pleased to extend our fruitful partnership with IQE into the future. They supported our ramp to high volumes in the consumer space, where we have shipped more than 1 billion large scale VCSEL arrays. As we start to ramp high volumes of differentiated solutions into even more demanding applications in the coming years in the automotive, extended reality, and industrial spaces, I'm sure our partnership will continue to flourish." '
crosswires: Savvy, yes interesting times, although the share price is just as likely to drop back than rise again in the coming days/weeks from experience. However the issue I’m keen to hear about is what form the expansion Americo talks about will manifest itself and how it will be paid for? Fund raise, expansion of credit facility, private investment, government grants or “partnerships”? When we know the answer to this and exactly what we will be producing in this expansion we will have a better idea of the mid term potential for the share price. As ever the possibilities for IQE are great, what is now required is much needed execution that delivers a quick return to growth that becomes sustainable growth that leads to growing profits. IF (and it’s certainly not a sure thing!) that happens the share price could easily be in the £s and not the pence…
crosswires: Guild, if Spreadex are short they will either be proved right or wrong as will Richard Griffiths, place your bets. I guess the question is, does Richard Griffiths have some more pertinent knowledge about tech and IQE than the shorters and have the latter just placed their bet on the quick rise of IQE share price from 26p, assuming like the recent past that it will run out of steam and drop back sharply? Spreadex already looking at a fairly hefty loss on their ‘bet’ if they are short ;0
crosswires: You might Lords depending on what your break even point is. Looking at the historical chart shows us that IQE share price goes up and down like the clappers so at some point it will pop up significantly
guildedge: Fact is IQE plans need a lot of money. If they plan to slowly ramp then maybe they can gradually borrow whilst share price rises to match this. If they plan to aggressively invest in up to 90 machines now for a big future order then they will need a big investment. That money will either come from government, borrowing, a share issue or a private venture caspitalist/bigger firm who would likely take the firm private and plouugh 100m-200m in here to shift the dial and maybe make IQE a global force. GF could well just gobble them up too. Of course government may not want the Welsh site in foreign hands so that could stop a takeover. Hopefully the board will announce big plans which should help shift the share price Until any of this happens IQE remains a loss making firm. Key difference on the takeover now is where IQE are at. They have big plans but are losing money on low revenue right now. Banks would want to see big orders on their books to lend more money. They wasted a lot of the money from the last share issue. At current prices they may need to issue 30-50% more shares. I had this on a previous investment. The firm ran out of money and a private firm stepped in with fundings and basically took it private and gave major shareholders a stake. Private shareholders got a 30% premium and that was it. If the share price does not move up there is a huge risk this will happen in my opinion. That firm too had big ambitions with big expansion plans.
sweenoid: Lemos’s entire strategy is based on IQE being CUSTOMER focused rather than being almost entirely technologically driven. His comments in the BBC article must suggest that he sees a very large demand and growing customer engagement based upon our present offerings. hTtps:// He was not scared at all about sidetracking the cREO development, that was his 1st major decision and was a big one indeed, this is what Silex said on 30/3/22 ( we still have to pay them $400k a year) Until recently, IQE had been developing a product called IQepiMoTM which was built on cREO®, targeting 5G filters for mobile handset devices. However, as a result of a strategic review under new CEO Americo Lemos, IQE has said the technology has become a longer- term development. IQE says it will retain the technology, capability and IP enabling redeployment if and when appropriate. In short Lemos is doing what we were all crying out for and doing it with an eye for a very positive future in terms of revenue growth. I am liking what I hear but the proof is in the pudding and our CEO HAS to execute and by execute I mean focus on revenue growth and PROFIT. Quite how that squares with the possibility of significant investment being needed I don’t know! We should all remember he is backing himself and the company with a very healthy investment of his own money. hTtps:// I am increasingly but also cautiously optimistic. S
longtallsally: It’s one trade and not an insider, would only impact the share price much if we were in a positive momentum. These days investors know when big trades are made pretty quickly. Whatever any of us think or type here only results and contracts will drive the IQE share price further forward as the markets will be difficult for some time.
longtallsally: At present there is zero coiled spring, that expression is far away from what IQE share price is today. However I can see some signs that the future (still a fair way down the line in investing terms) may offer better days. People like using throw away phrases on share bulletin boards to pass the time of day. Cheap as chips was another ;)
longtallsally: Nonsense, IQE share price is where it is due to failure to make money, period.
