I'd say you made a good choice yump to stay on the sidelines.

I own a horticultural nursery where I have been approached by these guys a number of times regarding a sensorGROW trial. I looked into what the product actually offers and after visiting their website and you tube film I was none the wiser! Lots of fluff about maximising this and optimising that but with no substance!

Much of what we use in the industry originates in Holland. There are a multitude of technically very advanced solutions out there from companies with many years experience and massive resources.

Simplistically they are, to the layman in a growth area where they proclaim to offer something exciting. There are many LED growing lights now on he market from people like Philips and GE. The chance of LST making significant ground against these global players is very unlikely.

There is talk of vertical farms being mothballed as they have become nonviable due to their high electricity usage.

I could be proved wrong and this is just my humble opinion but I think they will prove to be another AIM company with vaguely promising products that aren't nearly as unique as they proclaim. They will burn cash, make promises, fail to deliver much and then burn more cash.

The chart would appear to be telling us something too!

Held off buying as found out there are a lot of businesses into vertical farming and still can't figure out if LST have something unique or are just a 'me-too' business.

Just as well by the look of it.

Quite interesting long term at this level I think. Finger in the air to guess the next placing price, which imo is inevitable. 1.8mln left at half year, which was 31 May.

There are plenty of vertical farms in the US and an issue with energy usage. Quite tricky to find other businesses supplying energy-saving kit - not surprising the 4th. gateway has been brought forward.

Haven't been able to figure out if LST are late into the market or not yet.

A trading update today:

and an article about the pros and cons of vertical farming:

Price looks like its got wind of a fund-raise.

Problem is there's no signs of significant contracts in the CEA division.
That leaves an unattractive humdrum base business that has supply chain issues.

Somewhere in the admission doc there's an explanation of the milestones that need to be achieved to get the full value from that large potential order value quoted at float, which had a "*" next to it. Can't find the specifics though and they clearly don't want to put them out there and make it easy to find.

Looks like they've got through about 2mln in last 6 months, £700k ish spent on inventory since year end.

1.8mln cash left and its not clear whether the base business is profitable enough to support the new one, given the headwinds.

On the other hand vertical farming is clearly in an upward trend - there's a following wind there.

Just unclear, without contract news, whether LST is likely to capitalise on it.

Interesting though, that its a fairly dire outlook and the share price hasn't plummeted. Perhaps the forecast at finals did the share price damage already.

Light Science Technologies' present growth plans following Autumn listing on AIM will be a correction of the share price considering it went up over 70% past week. Share price always goes opposite to most of retail investors expected.

Hi toptomcat. As you say, IIG is a much less risky play than LST, so holders are able to retain an indirect interest in LST whilst spreading that risk more evenly. I'm optimistic that IIG's management are more than capable of spotting more winners like LST, particularly the other unquoted investments to date. Therefore happy to hold IIG whilst taking profits on LST.

The chart is a thing of beauty here! But I've felt compelled to take a lot of profit here today.

At these levels the £46m m/cap is asking for quite a bit to sustain it. The results this year to 30th November will likely show a large decline in EBITDA/PBT as per Turner Pope's forecasts given the investment in LST and the supply chain problems in UK Circuits' sector, so might surprise some existing investors/put new investors off.

I certainly didn't expect to make around 130% in a couple of weeks, so happy to leave some for the next man. The huge volumes - and the incredibly quiet thread here - suggest there's perhaps decent institutional interest which may carry the share price higher.

It's also good news to be able to sell a lot of stock at high prices when there's such good liquidity. This is often impossible in microcaps like LST.

It's really a gamble from here at this point without maiden trading info, news flow etc. To double from here would require a hefty £92m m/cap. On the other hand negative news could see a pull back to say 14p-15p? Not a good risk/reward imho.

Good luck all - I'll keep the thread going with news flow as I still have a holding for interest's sake.

LST scoops gong at vertical farming awards
Light Science Technologies wins ‘Best Sustainability Initiative’ at Vertical Farming World Awards

LST's nuturGROW wins sustainability award

UK agritech firm Light Science Technologies (LST) has won ‘Best Sustainability Initiative’ at the 2021 Vertical Farming World Awards, for its sustainable grow light range nurturGROW.

The Derby-based business, formed in 2019, was selected by a renowned panel of independent judges for its innovative lighting product, seeing off strong competition from some of the industry’s biggest names.

Recently launched, nurturGROW is made from materials that minimise carbon footprint while providing a high-performance and cost-effective solution for indoor growers. It is 90 per cent recyclable, significantly reducing landfill waste, and is also 85 per cent reusable, allowing growers to easily upgrade components and with no downtime, making it future-proof and easily maintainable.

Simon Deacon, CEO of Light Science Technologies said: “We are thrilled to receive this award, especially at a time of exciting growth for the business. It is recognition of all the team’s hard work over the past two years, and cements LST’s place at the front of indoor farming technology and innovation.”

Celebrating excellence and innovation across the global vertical farming industry, the inaugural awards saw 18 winners from across 16 categories announced on Tuesday 21 September at an online ceremony during Zenith Global’s 2021 Vertical Farming World Congress.

Light Science Technologies says it delivers lighting, science and research-proven plant monitoring technology and software in partnership with world-leading university research teams.

It works across multiple indoor applications including vertical farming, greenhouses and poly tunnels across different plant species."
