In fact his account only exists to ventilate it - set up for that sole purpose, which has been pursued diligently ever since.
Your opinion has been very well ventilated.
Are you joking? Hargreaves, interactive investor, Halifax share dealing, Barclays wealth, AJbell are all private investors through nominee accounts. You’re making my point for me?

"Kromek have no institutional investors, why?"

This is BS, sorry for language, but it is.

I've copied all the institutional investors above, direct from KMK's website.

many extreme, biased views for no reason

I’m not certain of negative outcomes. I’m only certain that whatever the CEO/board say should be taken with a pinch a salt. Kromek is essentially an uninvestable company if one cannot rely on any information they provide. We’ve seen it again and again. Kromek have no institutional investors, why? Because they are uninvestable, you cannot rely on information they provide. If they made an announcement tomorrow that they had secured x amount of sales of the biological pathogen detector from x number of governments. I would sell based on the good news. I would certainly not hang around and wait for the sales to materialise. Why? Because I simply don’t believe anything this board have to say.
If the share price is definitely going down hill / company is so dodgy, then why not sell out?

Then you can buy back in at 8p.

If you're that certain of negative outcomes...

When there is only one large institutional investor and an army of private unprofessional investors invested in a company you’ve got to ask questions. When the board hold very very little stock in Kromek you’ve got to be a little worried. When the ceo allows himself to get diluted at the last fundraising whilst simultaneously talking about the huge potential etc you’ve got to be very worried. When the ex cfo is given a huge payout (out of his contractual terms, as described by skid35 on lse chat), you’ve got to wonder why they are doing this. Kromek reaks of a dodgy AIM company.
Most if not all investors would agree with everything you have said, AQC888. I certainly do. That is certainly demonstrated by the constant daily share sells exceeding share buys. Faith in this BOD has not just diminished but has gone completely. The rampers on here probably agree - certainly understand- with what you have said but could never admit to it on this board as that would embarrass them.
The question you’ve got to ask yourself muck 33 is; why would any investor trust a company which continuously over promises and under deliveries. When there are other companies such as Frontier IP that I hold, that continuously under promise and overachieve. Why should I or any other investor continue to hold Kromek. We’ve been deliberately mislead for yet another time. Remember the money from the hospital scanner in China that was due to be paid imminently? Etc etc etc. Kromek needs a new board or to be sold off bit by bit. As it stands the board are completely destroying shareholder value.
That is simply not the case 33mick.

Sure there might be one interview he did in Korea where he correctly described that it is not “a fully automated continuous process that runs autonomously”. But there are endless examples of where it has been described as fully autonomous.

I’m not saying that it’s not impressive what has been achieved. I’m just saying investors have been mislead and facts embellished. Not for the first time either. There’s a reason Kromeks valuation is so low and keeps falling

AQC888, IF you'd bothered to watch the Korean vids from the showcase defence exhibition which for some reason you ramped up your personal expectations you'll have heard Arnab state that it is configured to run for 24 hour periods, the DARPA model for say Biowatch in the US has a requirement to run continuously for 5 days, these specs have changed many times as no other company has managed to design a unit that can run automatically for a hour let alone a day so far.
Also you will notice in the same vid that we see for the first time the service door open showing the 2x process cleaning solutions bottles and the waste
one. Which is another large clue to the RNA DNA sequence platform tech being used

“Completely autonomous”

“Samples the air every 30mins 24hours a day”

“Fully automated continuous process runs autonomously”

My point here is that the board have mislead investors. It’s a fairly important difference. A detector that works as a co2 detector does in your home - as we were lead to believe. Or a detector that needs a human to service it every day.

We have a situation with Kromek where the board continuously again and again and again mislead investors. I do not view this as a mistake. I view this as an embellishment on top of many others. I have certainty there will be many many more where this has come from. This product was used to attract investors - cited as the main reason for the previous £13m funding. Not impressed, I have no confidence in this company anymore.

Technology will beat pandemics and Kromek is a world leader - time to be patient imho dyor
I'm happy to see they are taking steps to market the machine and glad to be able to read though those details. Still sounds like the strongest solution in this space to my layman ears.
Well said, Aqc. Too many tweaks needed on this machine. Probably why it’s not yet on sale. Have we been had?
“Runs autonomously for upto 48 samples”. In other words it runs autonomously for 1day.

That’s new information. Not quite how it’s been described by the CEO. It’s always been described as fully autonomous with no lab or human input. I’m sure if I looked through previous descriptions from the CEO regarding this I would find he’s been exaggerating slightly here. Not impressed and yet another dent to my confidence in Kromek. Over promise under deliver.

Still no information regarding what lab tested the machine, any details about the accreditation or data or results from the tests. No statements or results from the institutions the detector was trialled at.

A fully autonomous machine is not a machine that needs to have new sample capsules put in it every day... It’s not as described... How many more things are going to be found to be not as described?

My last blog is only 12 hours old and already got two “thumbs down” that tells me that the rampers don’t like it and my thoughts could be correct.
