Though the results are promising, it's debts are going up and up, from £4.96m to £9.25m and now £11.17m

What do you make of results L? Market may have trouble valuing relatively small but fast growing earnings (c3p)with value of installed base. Perhaps a bit like valuing a company with high net cash to market value but earnings relatively modest to market cap? T.

I've heard the bigger boys are picking up the contracts for big six. UU, Siemens and G4s engineers.

Interesting to see new player Energy Assets come to market. Presumably EA price on float will have an impact, positive or negative on SMS. Any thoughts? T

Lennonsalive did you mean "does not" as the article reads as follows:- Smart meters for energy to be voluntary Plans to force households to have energy smart meters installed have been shelved over health and privacy fears. The Government had promised that every household would have a smart meter by 2019 in a £12 billion programme to stop gas and electricity bills being estimated. Officials are devising plans to allow people to reject the smart meters, which communicate remotely from households to energy companies. The move is a victory for campaign groups and backbench MPs, who raised concerns with ministers that the devices emit electromagnetic radiation 24 hours a day and cannot be turned off. Privacy campaigners were worried that half-hourly data on energy usage collected by smart meters could give clues about people's way of life, such as when someone is on holiday, at work or asleep. Sources in the Department for Energy and Climate Change said the proposal was shelved to avoid the programme getting "bogged down" in lengthy legal disputes. There has been a public outcry recently about the potential health effects of smart meters in the US and Canada.

Doesnt look very good for a company which set itself up under the smart metering banner. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/financialservices/utilities/Business-energy/9053100/Smart-meters-for-energy-to-be-voluntary.html

I used to work in the gas industry until recently . Over the past 10 years there has been a massive program of works countrywide to replace metallic gas mains with new Plastic systems but the meters were never changed unless they really had to be. During the last few months of my employment some of the meter fitter were talking about a similar program to replace ALL the meters in the country with new smart meters that can be read i'd imagine by some kind of handheld device from OUTSIDE your property thereby eliminating the need for you to be in or recieve an estimated bill. Looking at a company review sms has a patent pending for just such technology again i'd imagine if they can get it passed and are able to install it the potential here could be massive.

Still some decent buying going on. The IPO was substantially oversubscribed so the buying is not a surprise, the speed with which the share price is increasing is a little bit of a surprise though, not that i,m moaning, in fact quite the opposite.

Lots of different companies producing Smart meters, Bglobal, OnStream, etc. Volume of installs is a very important part, as this is the bread and butter. Any figures on install volumes?

Bought in this morning. A couple of things stood out from this morning rns. ADM is a patent pending smart meter device for the I&C market with application in gas and water both in the UK and internationally. ADM is currently undergoing commercial trials. Based on trial volumes, the Directors have concluded that ADM is significantly less expensive than any other product currently on the market and is an effective replacement for the equivalent manual meter reading service. ADM features simple plug and play functionality with zero commissioning and can be deployed quickly using unskilled labour. ADM provides half hourly meter reading data direct to suppliers through secure information gateways. Significantly cheaper and can be deployed quickly using unskilled labour. Hopefully a winning combination. I also like this bit. Smart Metering Systems raised GBP10.0 million (gross) of new investment from a broad range of institutional and other investors by way of a substantially oversubscribed placing of new ordinary shares at a price of 60 pence per share. Substantially oversubscribed. Should mean there will be a bit of interest and volume for a while.

Website http://www.uk-smg.com/Home Aim Admission Document. http://www.uk-smg.com/SMS/media/Documents/Smart-Metering-Systems-Plc,-Admission-Document.pdf UK Gas Connection Management of new gas connections and meter services. UK Gas Connection is uniquely positioned as the UK's leading independent provider of outsourced administration and management of commercial gas supply infrastructure projects. This independence is important as it allows us to manage complex gas connection projects on an ongoing basis even when the end consumer changes supplier during the process. Our services cover the full life cycle of new gas connections and meter projects which range from new build installations, to extensions, to existing buildings which require new infrastructure such as pipelines and meters. We manage from the initial contact with an end user right through to management of the project including all billing and credit management activities. Our client base includes the UK's largest energy suppliers. UK Meter Assets Gas meter asset operations for every UK gas supplier. UK Meter Assets is an Ofgem-approved meter asset management company which owns, operates and manages commercial and domestic gas meters on behalf of the UK's leading gas suppliers and independent meter asset managers. Offering flexibility through our ability to adapt to the needs of our customers. UK Meter Assets' comprehensive IT system enables us to interface simply and seamlessly with our clients in order to track, manage and bill for the meter assets through multiple changes in supplier. Our systems are fully RGMA and Rainbow compliant and operate through both the IX and DTN gateways. All of our meters are smart-ready, providing a pulsed output for retrofitting our (patented) ADM Smart Metering Solution , which we believe is the most competitive and environmentally friendly available, or one of the other currently available smart meter devices. UK Data Management The key to the future efficiency of the UK's energy system Recently established, UK Data Management has been set up to deliver the company's patented ADM smart metering solution which is very simple to install and highly cost effective and competitive. ADM has worldwide potential and includes a full suite of web based analysis tools. It is suitable for use in both the gas and water industry and has been designed to exceed the requirements of both the industrial/ commercial market and the domestic market. Smart metering is seen as the key to the future efficiency of the UK's energy system. This follows the UK Government's requirement for every home and business to have smart/advanced meter functionality by 2019 to monitor energy consumption, resulting in the replacement of approximately 22 million meters in the UK. ADM can be simply and quickly retrofitted to the majority of pulse enabled meters therefore preserving existing meter assets where possible. This is critical if the environment is to be protected against unnecessary removal and disposal of vast numbers of existing meters as part of the smart meter roll out. The unit is commissioned in seconds when activated using a simple fob and offers major advantages for the end user in data management and control.

Deciding on whether to get an iPhone or a Google Android based one. Anyone got either some screenshots of the share price monitor on the iPhone, or an idea of what i'd expect to see. I was under the impression that the iPhone couldn't display Java, or does the mobile version of ADVFN use something different? TIA
