ARK87, I can see you're a hard man to impress, Kromek a small UK company have developed and built the first Patho Airborne detection prototype and have them in testing off the drawing board (well CAD screen) in January this year....months.. There are to my knowledge a number of US and global companies many times the size and resources of Kromek who have tried and failed to crack this much needed design detection solution...it's an all UK tech world's first if you Weren't aware. The core RNA sequencing tech being used here was deemed almost impossible only a few years ago, 5 years latter £200 mil spent in development and today they're in the news again one of the UK's true success stories. My first old engineering boss's favourite saying was - 'The Impossible We Can Do at Once, Miracles Take a Little Longer' He worked on the design of Concorde and knew his stuff. Kromek are just about to showcase the system at a London Defence exhibition next week not bad going in my book.

Ark87, they are still within the timeframe reported in the IC it’s easy to forget with all the impatience by myself and others on here. The article 2months ago said expect news in the coming months. Also the article was reporting on the covid detector which as responses to Nicks emails from the CFO seem to suggest that’s still on track. Who knows what’s going on with it... hopefully we get a bit of news next week at the dsei exhibition. If it gets a little media attention we could see another sugar rush spiral upwards while we await the trial results. A small release of new news or regurgitated old news could see that.

AQC888 - The length of time Covid detector is taking makes me believe they are surely have issues with it? It probably works but maybe not well enough to make it worthwhile hence endless amounts of tweaking? Why else could this be taking so long when under big pressure to get it out?

I note there was no shareholder revolt at the AGM. Turnover was 35pc ish which is quite high given the current KMK shareholder base. I could not find the link to the notice and assume that resolution 1 which attracted a 10pc no vote was the approval of the accounts.

14th September is the before mentioned exhibition at excel. Where the theme of the show is relevant to the detector. I wouldn’t want to sell out now with details that could be released then. Remember there will be buyers of the machine there - if they have any details it would be a good time to release them.

Quepassa, so what’s your interest in Kromek? I’m guessing you’ve lost a chunk of money in Kromek from the early days and a little bit bitter about it all?

oh I do apologise if you feel my posts are lacking substance. I hope this one of mine from earlier this year on 6th April 2021 (post 4244) helps rectify the situation. Perhaps you weren't on the board at the time or missed it. "Using figures from Equity Development (7/10/20), this is Kromek's seven year performance. Rounded by me to nearest half-million. 1. TURNOVER FIGURES. 2014 £6m 2015 £8m 2016 £8.5m 2017 £9m 2018 £12m 2019 £14.5m 2020 £13m These TURNOVER figures include PRODUCT and OTHER. I assume (but am not certain) that OTHER includes/means grants and research funding. For example, in 2016 OTHER was £3m. In 2019 OTHER was £2.5m TURNOVER total for last 7 years is £71 million. 2. PROFIT BEFORE TAX - ADJUSTED 2014 -£4.5m LOSS 2015 -£3m LOSS 2016 -£4m LOSS 2017 -£4m LOSS 2018 -£2.5m LOSS 2019 -£1.5m LOSS 2020 -£4m LOSS LOSS BEFORE TAX (ADJUSTED) for last seven years is £23.5 million. 3. EQUITY RAISING SINCE IPO 30/7/15 £11million 25/1/17 £21million 12/2/19 £21million 12/2/21 £13million They had raised £53m by end 2020. And the new 2021 Placing, brings total to £66m. A great deal of shareholder dilution. 4. SUMMARY. SEVEN YEARS TURNOVER £71m LOSS £23.5m EQUITY RAISINGS £53m (+ another £13m in 2021) Where does so much money go? With so many positive messages and so many sure-fire guaranteed, copper-bottomed, game-changer, cutting-edge, state-of-the-art and innovative whizzbang new product initiatives, mostly announced to piggy-back off the latest global scare (nuclear detection, airport security, medical imaging, ventilators ,covid), why does this company still make such resolute losses? The Easter weekend marked the 7th. anniversary of the infamous 4/4/14 RNS announcement of the seven year up to $159million CZT-based detection modules contract in China. You see, if you add together ALL Kromek's TURNOVER for the last seven years, the whole lot doesn't come anywhere close to what that ONE SINGLE CONTRACT was meant to bring in. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP " ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

Need to remember that in China, Australia etc they are still closing down areas when a covid case is identified. Big market. Very different approach to U.K. we should remember U.K. is taking an approach which is very different to a lot of other countries. Also we need to remember that variants seem to be evading the vaccines and that should a new worse variant pop up the machine will be of huge importance. There will also be niche areas where there detector would be very useful. When a niche area is identified and sold to globally sales will boom. If elderly are found to be vulnerable for example. At £20k per machine it’s not out of the range of many institutions buying just to reassure staff, students, residents etc. Then there are the sales to governments who are interested in testing cases in the community. Remember the ONS study at the moment is visiting over 100,000 households monthly paying each resident of that house £25 each for swab samples at a cost of well over £10m per month. So governments are still very interested in monitoring the virus in the community. I can envisage many uses for the machine. People also forget future products Kromek scientists can develop. Something which would be well priced into the share price on a Nasdaq listing

The longer the wait the less optimistic i am the covid detector will generate significant revenues. If it was knocking it out the park surely they would have it out by now considering the world is crying out for something like this.

Boomboy, we’re both overly exposed to Kromek, i think I remember you saying Kromek were 40% of your portfolio. It’s 10% of mine currently and showing a 25% profit. I’d generally think it’s unwise holding so much in a single AIM company. I’m nervously keeping a close eye on Kromek. Disappointed there was no news today on the trial results. Hopefully some details will be released when they show the detector at the Excel exhibition on the 14th next week.... I suspect the CFO was taking a more reserved under promise over deliver approach when giving his timescale of the end of this financial year for detector results. The CEO just seems a disaster causing false hope constantly. Partly why there is such little confidence in Kromek

It’s pretty normal quepassa for a company developing a lot of new class leading products not to be profitable. The various products they have developed so far will produce a small profit this financial year. Meanwhile on the side they have developed the biological pathogen detector whilst generating that small profit for the year. Here are some other facts... Order book covers 75 per cent of revenue estimates for 2021/22 financial year. £20m worth of nuclear sector revenue in active procurement that could be delivered this year. Estimated turnover of £15m this year. House broker Cenkos Securities expects gross margins to rise from 48 to 52 per cent, so with the benefit of a relatively fixed cost base last year’s Covid-19 impacted cash loss of £1.7m is forecast to produce a small adjusted cash profit. Hill at Equity Development values the annual global market for the biological threat detection devices at £500m.

@dixter. Thought you had filtered me. “ Just a sample. So what part of that is not informed and relevant information that could provide significant tailwind to the company that we are invested in?” “Could” is a little bit like “if”. hmmm Are you gambling on the “could’s”, dixter?

AQC. Your post 5092, along with nearly all your posts have been interesting to read and inline with my views in the main. However, this is now becoming a bit ridiculous (and I don’t mean you or your posts) to say the least. There’s no need here to reiterate over everything but all positive posts about KMK on this site have become nothing but massive ramping. In all those posts (ramping posts) there is the word “if” and they’re always massive IF’s. This is not meant as a jibe to you but to all the pathetic ramping that’s being written here. As I said earlier, I’m gambling on the massive IF’s. Good luck!

What is the brokers forecast for next year. I suspect this is more important than the last 7 years. All in my opinion.
