kiplig,

"If you don’t believe, then don’t buy the stock - or short it of you’re that passionate."

FWIW it's impossible to short SALT, but even if it wasn't, it would be reckless to short it at this point in time.

Firstly note that no entry has been created at ShareTracker:



So no one (market markets apart, since they are excluded from having to disclose) has shorted more than 0.5%.

Also note that IG have zero positions (long or short) in SALT:



And since IG are prime broker to SpreadEx then neither do SPX, hence the top two spread bet providers in the UK have zero positions.

But the biggest reason why no one should get involved on the short side is that the free float in SALT is miniscule. TEK own 77.1% of SALT and the next three shareholders own another 8.4%. Less than 15% of SALT is considered to be free-float, which is very small and thus dangerous to short.

It does of course also point to one of the reason why SALT would be a good short - because in time TEK Capital will have to crystallise their shareholding, just like they've done with the likes of Lucyd and Belluscura. But that's not a good enough reason on its own to try.

Btgman.

There are many other micro salts that are not quite as small as your Microsalt. The question is does ever decreasing size of salt particle generate value? Actually it creates problems because it makes the salt very vulnerable to moisture.

The food companies largely use salt for preservation of food snd size of particle does not impact that. On things like crisps they do not need the smallest salt particle. Just a small one. Of which there are lots.

Once again, the drop in sales suggests that there is not a massive need but that is my view only.

kiplig,

We disagree on numerous issues relating to SALT but I am well aware that many investors need to see "things" happen. Which is why I suggest that we discuss this again in six months, when the next results are out. I forecast:

* insignificant growth
* immaterial revenue
* significant admin costs making the post-tax loss material
* an increased share count, probably from the exercise of share warrants
* probably enough cash, from the exercise of those share warrants, for there to be enough to continue as a going concern for the next twelves months
* net assets in the region of £2m
* a lower share price, in the ball park of 60p, possibly lower if the convertible loan has begun to be converted to shares (it's an "at the market" convertible rather than a fixed price one)

You don't have to make a forecast if you don't want to but I promise that if you take detailed notes, including of forecasts, then it will be hugely beneficial to your investment journey in the long run.

MicroSalt results for year ending 31st December 2023 are out today


The numbers have been known for months

Hence much of the wording in these results could have been written months ago --- however

The following statements have been imo written recently :-

Rick Guiney, CEO of MicroSalt commented:


"This has been a transformational year for MicroSalt and with continued evidence of the timeliness and essential nature of its products as it emerged as a recognised and preferred choice for product reformulation globally.
Our geographic outreach is expanding all the time, now with inroads into Asia, Australia, South Africa, the UK, Germany, Canada and Latin America with a resultant boost to our sales pipeline.
Furthermore, our consumer products including SaltMe crisps and MicroSalt shakers have successfully provided a low-sodium alternative for households worldwide, cementing our brand as an essential, generation-spanning choice.

I am delighted that we can look ahead with the utmost confidence and in eager anticipation of further successes awaiting us".


Outlook


We are excited about 2024 as the year where we see MicroSalt receiving recurring commercial volume purchase orders for its bulk product.
The Group currently has various significant volume customer prospects at advanced stages with a range of national and multi-national companies.
The nature and size of these existing and potential customers businesses is that once MicroSalt has been nominated as a supplier on one product line, we expect further nominations across multiple other, and likely much larger product lines of that customer.


We also anticipate more investment into growth of our MicroSalt® shakers and its establishment as the generational salt used at home.

MicroSalt plc

("MicroSalt" or the "Company")



Patent Issuance for Novel Low Sodium Salt



MicroSalt plc, (AIM: SALT) a company producing full-flavour, low-sodium salt for food manufacturers and consumers, is pleased to announce that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has granted and will issue its patent number 11,992,034 entitled Low Sodium Salt Composition on 28 May 2024 (the "Patent"). This relates to Microsalt's patent application No. 18/175,028, previously announced by the Company on 6 March 2024.



The Patent concerns the production of MicroSalt having claims directed to a low-sodium salt that adheres better to foods than a traditional salt that is not adhered to a carrier particle, and that is produced according to MicroSalt's claimed improved production process.



MicroSalt also has counterpart patent applications as described in the Company's admission document dated 27 January 2024, with claims directed to similar subject matter as the Patent, pending in countries including China, Chile, Australia, Brazil, Europe, Canada, Japan, Russia, Mexico, India and Hong Kong.



MicroSalt also owns a previously issued United States patent directed to its salt carrier product and production processes, and a United States provisional patent application directed to additional innovations.

Blue sky potential: MicroSalt (SALT:AIM) 70.5p

One market minnow on a mission to reduce sodium consumption and heart disease is MicroSalt (SALT:AIM), producer of a patented full-flavour, low-sodium salt for food manufacturers and consumers that is strengthening its intellectual property position and could reward a punt if its technology fulfils its tasty potential over the next decade, though the market newcomer is no stock for widows and orphans. Revenue remains modest and the company chalked up operating losses of $2.5m in the year to December 2022 followed by a $1.7m deficit in the six months to June 2023 due to ongoing investment in the MicroSalt brand and new product formulations. Liquidity is also thin given TekCapital’s (TEK:AIM) majority stake. Nevertheless, the shares are up 65% on February 2024’s 43p IPO price in recognition of its potential to disrupt the food industry and growth scope in a global sodium reduction ingredients industry worth an estimated US$5.5bn in 2021 and forecast to reach US$9.6bn by 2032.

Management believes the £30.5m cap, whose consumer products include 50% less sodium salt shakers and SaltMe! low sodium crisps selling on Amazon and stocked on retail shelves across the pond, is well positioned to capture growth in the low sodium market and enter the larger salt market, with major, though as yet unnamed, food, drink and snack manufacturers developing and trialling MicroSalt across their products. MicroSalt also secured its first placement into the premium food service sector with Carma, a chain of restaurants in Canada, which CEO Rick Guiney said demonstrates ‘the wide appeal of Microsalt and offers a real-world example of our potential in the foodservice channel’.

Interesting stock although early days in its development. No position but onto my watchlist.

No truant. It’s not low sodium salt. Its is micro sized salt particles so you get more surface area of salt for the same amount of salt. It means it has a saltier taste with less salt because it dissolves on the tongue quicker than larger particles.

However, there are some problems….

1) the food industry mostly does not use salt to make food taste nice. It is there to preserve the food. Size of particle is not important there.
2) the USP of Microsalt is that it is 100th of the size of normal salt size. But micro sized salt already exists. This Microsalt is smaller than microfine salts but only by a much smaller amount.
3) they have been trying to sell this tech since 2016 but nobody wanted it. The food mega companies have had a decade to jump in.
4) the patent runs out in 6 years so that’s game over.

So basically this looks like a final attempt to get some cash out of it.

MicroSalt(R) files New Patent to Improve Baked Goods

Tekcapital Plc (AIM: TEK) the UK intellectual property investment group focused on creating valuable products that can improve people's lives, is pleased to announce that its portfolio company Microsalt Ltd ("Microsalt") has filed a new patent application (# 63/580,590) entitled "Compositions and methods for reduced leavening time and sodium content in doughs comprising micron-sized salt particles adhered to a carrier," to improve baked goods.

Highlights:

-- MicroSalt has recently demonstrated the successful utilisation of its proprietary low-sodium technology with a new recipe for use in baked goods


-- There is significant global demand for reducing sodium in a wide variety of baked goods
-- MicroSalt believes its new low sodium recipe reduces both sodium content and baking time for baked goods, enabling an improved nutritional profile coupled with a more sustainable and cost-effective production process

Rick Guiney, CEO of MicroSalt(R), commented:

"We are very excited about our new invention which we believe enables the production of baked goods quicker, less expensively, and with reduced sodium. The bread market is extremely compelling for us, with global volumes expected to reach 216.7bn kg by 2028 [1] . Our ability to not only reduce sodium but to enable a more efficient production process could be a watershed moment in the fight against excess sodium consumption, and we have already seen a high level of interest from one of the world's largest food companies."

Market Size

According to Statista the global bread market is estimated to be valued at US$0.5tn in 2023 and is expected to grow annually by 6.83% (CAGR 2023-2028). [2] MicroSalt believe that its new technology can be utilised on a wide variety of baked products to significantly reduce their current sodium concentrations. Potential product applications are listed below.

Strategy Highlights:



· MicroSalt is sufficiently capitalised and well-positioned to pursue immediate opportunities in its business to business ("B2B") and business to consumer ("B2C") channels.



· The Board believe nearer term profitable growth will primarily be driven by its B2B business. In 2024, the Company will continue to prioritise conversion of current B2B customer trials into commercial volume orders, expanding current product line sales across to other product lines and to establish new potential B2B partners to reformulate their product ingredients using MicroSalt technology to reduce sodium content.



· Having secured commercial orders from Customer B, the Mexican business of one of the world's largest food, soft drink and snack manufacturers, and Customer A, a national Fortune-500 pharmacy / food retailer, for use in their crisp and salted nuts lines, the Board see a clear path to sales growth in its higher volume B2B business. The Company expects to announce new orders and new customers, primarily based in the US, in the coming period.



· MicroSalt is in early-stage discussions with three of the largest UK supermarkets to use MicroSalt technology in their own-label products, as well as suppliers of ready-meals and a fast food burger company.



· MicroSalt plans to attend at least 12 food shows globally, including international events in Frankfurt, Paris, Shanghai, Dubai, and Stockholm.



· In addition to over 1,000 US and Filipino outlets stocking MicroSalt salt shakers, the Company will maintain its global expansion, aiming to make B2C products available in more top-tier retail stores, and in new territories.



· To manage expected growing order volumes, the Company will continuously monitor and expand as appropriate its global distribution and logistics network of third party manufacturing facilities, storage hubs, and transportation routes. In the longer term, the Board may determine it appropriate to build and manufacture some of its required volumes inhouse.



· The Company is encouraged by global regulatory agendas supporting reduced sodium consumption and will seek to engage constructively with authorities and policymakers.



· Through MicroSalt's marketing and sales strategy, the Company will continue to educate consumers on the health benefits of lowering sodium consumption, and communicate to the food manufacturing industry the commercial benefits of reformulating products with MicroSalt's low sodium technology.



Reformulation



MicroSalt is working with existing and potential customers to reformulate products in order to reduce sodium content using MicroSalt's patented technology. The Company is encouraged by results to date, which include successful testing results for Customers A, B and C (as described in the Company's admission document). MicroSalt has a sales pipeline of potential customers engaged in testing and expects to announce additional updates throughout 2024.



MicroSalt has proved its technology can be implemented in the reformulation of ingredients of crisps, bread, ready meals, and coatings for salted nuts. The Company believes many more products have the potential to include MicroSalt technology.



The Company believes a substantial commercial opportunity exists through the changing attitudes of major food companies to reduce sodium, and that it is well positioned to take advantage of the nascent market for a healthier alternative that tastes like traditional salt

BH - it's simply twice as "salty" as normal salt, due to microscopic particle size yet larger surface area. That gives improved adhesion too.

lifted from website :

A breakthrough patented technology in salt production. MicroSalt® salt particles are natural salt that are approximately 100 times smaller than traditional salt, therefore they dissolve on your tongue immediately, providing more saltiness with less sodium.

I'm happy for those very exiting B2B customers and the very experienced board to provide us the proof of the pudding.
