If shareholder value isn't realised soon, someone will take a stake and call for a strategic review. It makes no sense to me that their key competitor was acquired for almost 5x the current share price and the share price is languishing at all time lows (disclaimer: my basis is 10p as I only discovered this biz a few days' ago). Even assuming that was top of the market price to sales and applying a massive haircut, we're still getting the other division for free. These sorts of valuable assets don't tend to stay cheap / undiscovered forever. If the operational gearing doesn't kick in soon, they will be forced to do something about it. A decade is a long time to wait for the 'story' to finally come true.

Any investor in Kromek has to understand that the management here is extraordinarily weak, with an aweful record of never achieving their aims.

It’s possible value can be extracted here via sale of part of business or a strategic tie up. But investing here hoping that the management will suddenly change is a fool’s errand.

If you see any fund manager being interviewed about how they pick investments you’ll often see a strong management team as pretty high up. There’s a reason for this. As a previous investor of Kromek I’m extremely irritated by the ineptness of the board.

Could be right strategic, just seen another 100k buy hit the market, looks very promising.

We've got buyers today coming in for 100k sizes and loads of little nibbles too. NT at the moment to buy, is this the corner approaching?

I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt here, progress is happening from the evidence of recent announcements alone. You cant deny the area of expertise isn't at the forefront of of many governments :

Arnab Basu, CEO of Kromek Group, said: "We are delighted to have been awarded this contract to develop and supply an important capability for biological threat detection. The pandemic has demonstrated the impact of biological incidents - whether it is through an act of terror or naturally emerging threats. Governments throughout the world are reviewing their strategies to update their defence against such threats. We believe technologies that can provide information about emerging threats in near real time will be a critical component of such strategies."

We had this little snippet dated the 10/11:

Dr Arnab Basu, Chief Executive Officer of Kromek, said: "We are pleased to win this contract for our D3M radiation detectors. This repeat order affirms the strength of our nuclear radiation detection technology and highlights the growing market demand for these products. It is also reflective of the strong trading that we experienced in the first half of our FY 2023 year, and we expect to report revenue growth of approximately 45% for the six months to 31 October 2022. This, combined with the momentum that we are seeing, particularly in the CBRN segment, underpins the Board's confidence in our prospects for the future."

We've seen positive news releases and an uptick in the volume traded, this has coincided with a start of an uptrend in the price. I'm looking for a sustained rerate, all imho of course.

The thing with Kromek is, that you can never believe what they say. They said the biological pathogen detector had passed its accreditation brilliantly with accuracy equivalent to a pcr test, the trials all went well and sales were due at the beginning of this year. No sales materialised and no explanation was given. Same story as the ventilators. Kromek even had a liquid bomb detector for airports they developed… these are rolling out in airports now I see in the news (only not Kromeks version).
Kromeks share price has been rightly battered. The last £13m fundraising was in large part to commercialise the biological pathogen detector… yet there has been no commercialisation. They just received a £5m contract from the government to develop it - how could they commercialise something years ago that apparently isn’t developed yet??!! Bizarre. The only constant with Kromek is failure.

Except that this time the price hasn't risen on the tip which implies that investors have got wise to it. I wonder what motivates ST to tip them when they perform so badly?

Its funny to read about it being tipped in Investors Chronicle. Simon Thompson has been promoting it for years but its been a complete disaster. It shouldn't give anyone much confidence in their predictions.

I think this will settle at a 50% discount to brokers fair value of 26p. Should remain around the 13p level for a while imo

Tipped in Investors Chronicle

Brokers fair value forecast 26p and 27p

There was no evidence to suggest that was happening, e.g. negotiations with governments etc., and it was probably pure guesswork by the company. Perhaps they should have given more consideration to the wording of their announcement. However, given the UK government development contract, they might have announced that if the programme is successful, they fully expect to receive UK orders and roll out the commercialisation of the system internationally. That would have been the best way to inform the market, in my view.

Helicopter, valid points and I agree rewards would be huge and new technology needs further research…

However, we were told it worked as accurately as a pcr, trials all went brilliantly and to expect sales by April past.

The bio-detection system is still under development but has shown enough efficacy to warrant further research leading to commercialisation, perhaps sometime after 2024. It's still not certain if it will become a viable platform, but the rewards for getting it right must be enormous. In the meantime, Kromek will hopefully continue to progress in the nuclear and medical detection markets.

Who knows what’s going on?! I’m grateful I got out at 16p and then again 13.5p (without a loss) before the share price plunged. Today I took a small chunk at 8.6p, since I no longer feel Kromek are doomed to administration. I feel there’s a strong possibility of a fundraising in the near future. and that will be the optimum point that it will be best to invest at. However, the potential for Kromek to move sharply upwards is now greater than the chance of it moving sharply downwards in my opinion. Undoubtedly high risk though.

ACQ: No, not: "to ‘develop’; and supply the detector."

Rather:

"to develop and supply biological threat detection systems."

A pretty wide brief! Also perhaps form factor(s) come into it.
