gnnmartin - You might be correct. It feels to me like KMK are struggling to sell significant quantities hence no updates. Would also explain Arnab's desperate interview in the express which reeked to me of no significant orders so far from the UK government at least. Would love to be proven wrong obviously.

I thought everyone knows and agrees that this is what the world needs. Protection against threats of all kinds. The issue here is that someone else will get the job done before KMK. THE CARROT HAS BEEN DANGLING TO LONG. WE, THE INVESTORS/GAMBLERS ARE BEING LEFT IN THE DARK. THATS FOR SURE!

gnnmartin, I think your point here is what many are thinking and what I have been focusing my attention on whilst forgetting the bigger picture of the bio pathogen detector. The covid specific detector is just a spin off of the full spectrum detector. I think this point is damaging the image of the potential on offer here. The full spectrum detector is of huge importance of detecting an biological attack (or future pandemics). The market for this is huge as the US government have already stated they want them in underground stations and have stated the figures. The market for this is huge. The other huge market is as a defence against the next pandemic. If this machine does work I find it unthinkable that the world would not have these stationed at every port entrance to stop the stream of the next global pandemic. The covid specific detector I see as more useful in governments data collection of the state of covid prevalence in the population. The government (ONS) are currently spending £390m a year taking samples from peoples doorsteps to monitor covid in the population. https://www.ons.gov.uk/aboutus/transparencyandgovernance/freedomofinformationfoi/annualcostofthecovid19infectionsurvey The collection of data is of importance. The detector will also be important in reassuring people to return to the workplace. Kromek states that the data will allow the users to increase decrease airflow. It’s also important to remember that while here in the U.K. we have quite high rates in China, Japan, Australia and many Asian economies rates are very very low and these economies are still aiming for zero infection rates. A point that is easy to forget from a U.K. investors perspective. Anyhow a lot of government money has gone into funding it )1.25m from U.K. government and £7m US government, so not all shareholders funds. I would be interested to know whether the funding from the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is hampering the sale of the equipment to the civilian market.

I'm not currently a holder of KMK, but watch it thinking to buy in sometime. I'm rather put off by the bio detector. I assume that the market puts some value on it, but I don't, so I'll wait for the market to agree with me, or KMK to prove me wrong! My reason for not valuing the bio detector is that there is no clear action when the bio detector sounds a warning. Can anyone sketch out a scenario where it is useful? In a theatre? What do you do? Clear the theatre? In a night club, clear the night club? If people won't get vaccinated, is sounding an alarm saying there is Covid in the air going to make them ready to abandon whatever they were doing?

No news is being interpreted as bad news here. Im thinking of the huge demand for a detector that can prevent the next pandemic from spreading. News that will be released by the next financial year. If this feat is pulled off, which I think will happen, Kromek at these prices will be seen as a huge opportunity missed.

But tho But the last two bounces were back at the end of Winter when excitement of the Covid Detector trials was beginning & end of Summer when hope for positive news on the Covid Detector was expected in the short-term. Months later....excitement & hope of an impressive update has waned!!!

If you look at the chart the last 3 times there where 4 monthly red candles in a row the next month was a big green candle. Let's hope for some relief after 4 months of misery. Anyone here been invested for the full 8 years from the beginning? I can only imagine how miserable that must have been!!

Might explain why there’s such patchy and poor information being revealed by the board. Or maybe as in Occams razor the simplest answer is correct - the board are just plain useless

Possibly a bit far fetched... but another positive scenario I hadn’t considered before. The only place the detector was publicly displayed at was a military trade show where security clearance was required. hxxps://www.kromek.com/news/kromek-is-exhibiting-at-dsei-2021/ Perhaps with the Russians and Chinese reportedly stealing the Oxford vaccine amongst other military technology. Just maybe the US government department DARPA who funded the pathogen detector (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) could be unhappy at the technology getting into Chinese/Russian hands. This might explain the lack of details regarding the accreditation of the detector. It might be that DARPA don’t want a crucial part of their biological warfare kit getting into enemy hands?

It's been months & months of nothing on the Covid detector. Why haven't they got some decent orders by now!?! I guess it's all looking rather disappointing on that front( priced too high, restricted to, too limited customer base, not enough passion, conviction on the sales demonstration; who knows!?!) I suggested back on July whether they'd be able to sell enough to excite the market, & got blasted by some. We remain to be convinced still... If they eventually sell decent amounts & excite I will be impressed & congratulate Kromek.

I think the problem is Arnab, he is very convincing but has over promised for many years. He lost the support of his largest shareholder gervais williams (miton) which was telling and I suspect the board struggle to rein him in or challenge him. If you start with the long term share price chart it shows this has been a serial disappointment and most ceos would be under pressure after this long in charge. I am happy to add despite Arnab as I think there is great value here.

I share the same disappointment of all the above three points. Nick is right with the management lacking credibility and needing some hard evidence of profitability/takeover. Bobus is right to refer to the dreaded Kromek “upto” phrase we’ve all heard before. Ark is also right to be disappointed at the lack of news on the detectors - although at the AGM they were categorically stated as working, have been showed at trade shows and have had successful trials they claim. They also stated at the AGM that a manufacture agreement was in place and ready to go. But the details seem to be missing with all these claims. Its just the sales that are needed if all is as stated by the board. Best case scenario is Kromek are currently manufacturing orders they have taken from the “very interested governments” and are very close to releasing an RNS about it any day now. Worst case scenario is the detector isn’t working and the board have mislead us. This would mean they have lied outrageously. I can’t see much middle ground between these two scenarios...? Kromeks share price rapidly changes quite dramatically. I can foresee it going up quite rapidly - if people who see it as a trading stock think it’s reached the bottom and going for another spike, as seems to be the case.

Simon Thompson on July 14th said "expect some exciting news within the next few months" regarding Covid detector. 4 months on absolutely nothing and the share price is collapsing. All very strange? "I last suggested buying the shares at 16.75p (‘Small-cap bargain hunt’, 14 February 2021), and feel that the value of the company's IP and scale of the profit opportunity on offer from Kromek’s Covid-19 pathogen detectors – expect some exciting news within the next few months – warrant a return to April’s highs (28p), and well beyond. Strong buy."

AQC The positive news was not a $17m contract, but a multi year contract that could be worth "up to" $17m It depends on your assessment of the language used, and I for one did not like it. I believe it caused a lot of selling.

I view KMK as a bit of a trading stock so I have bought in again. Always impossible to pick the lows but it looks a reasonably decent entry point. I can't say I am over-impressed with management hence I sold before the recent fall. They do pick up decent contracts in terms of size and prestige and there is significant news to come this year with the Covid detectors and, early next year, the broader bio-terrorism detectors. Previously I'd have thought the anticipated news would have ignited the prices significantly but I'm not sure KMK is that kind of stock. It will need a move to profitability for a substantive re-rating or, as mentioned, takeover interest.

Probably heading for last low of 13.15 before bouncing up again.

Very disconcerting to see the share price drop everyday. The only new news since the share price was at 21p is positive news ($17m contract). Yet the share price continues to drift lower. All small sells I note, a lot of panicking by small investors. Essentially if you thought it was a good buy 6months ago and bought some, it’s an even better buy now. Granted I too sold a few too at 16.5p. But it’s all based on emotions not information. The big news on that biological pathogen detector isn’t out yet. Nor has their deadline for commercialisation been reached yet.

Great summation of the value here. I suspect this will only come out via corporate action which given the recent share price could be on the cards. Arnab has chased too many rainbows and whilst creating some good products and possessing some great ip the constant stream of fund raising has destroyed any confidence. As stated the low share ownership by the board suggests this is something of a lifestyle company particularly for Arnab.

We’ll all find out in the coming months who’s been right and who’s got it wrong. Personally despite having a belief they can pull it off, I’m not putting too many of my chips on the table given the entire board own less than 1% of the shares of Kromek. I’m pretty alarmed that the chief financial officer and chief operations officer own less shares than myself. Also pretty alarmed that the founder and CEO owns just 0.69%. However, I’ve seen the same pathetic ownership in other companies who’ve made strong recoveries. I was put off buying more Braemar Shipping plc recently as so little buying was taking place by directors despite the strong case and plummeting share price. Only to see the share price surge back, hopefully it’s the same here. It does grate on my nerves significantly though that the board have such a pathetic stake in the business.

20% of £500m on 52% profit margin. Not bad for a company with a market cap of £60m - that’s excluding the czt scanners and radiation equipment that’s already been developed.
