This news dates from 9th July whilst I was on hols - congrats to the team at SCE. Another step forward in keeping the likes of BMW, VW etc onside: Http://www.4-traders.com/SURFACE-TRANSFORMS-PLC-4003551/news/Surface-Transforms-recommended-for-IATF-16949-certification-26897009/ "Surface Transforms : recommended for IATF 16949 certification 07/09/2018 | 10:14am EDT Following an external audit by auditing body Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance, Surface Transforms have been recommended for certification to the IATF 16949 automotive quality management system standard. This achievement has been made possible by a huge amount of work from across the company and at all levels in establishing an entirely new quality management system; it reflects Surface Transforms' dedication to customer satisfaction and continual improvement. IATF 16949 Certification is a pre-requisite for supply to all OEMs and we are delighted to have been recommended for certification. What is IATF 16949? IATF 16949 is a management system standard - it describes how the company should be run including specific process, results and auditing requirements; it lists these as requirements and recommendations in a published document (standard). IATF 16949 can be assessed and certified by third party auditors (as is the case for Surface Transforms). IATF 16949 is published by the International Automotive Task Force; a group of automotive manufacturers and their respective trade associations. IATF members include the following vehicle manufacturers: BMW Group, FCA US LLC, Daimler AG, FCA Italy Spa, Ford Motor Company, General Motors Company, PSA Group, Renault, Volkswagen AG and the vehicle manufacturers' respective trade associations - AIAG (U.S.), ANFIA (Italy), FIEV (France), SMMT (U.K.) and VDA QMC (Germany). It is used worldwide for quality management system assessment. How is IATF 16949 related to ISO/TS 16949? IATF 16949 is the replacement to ISO/TS 16949; IATF 16949 significantly changed and increased requirements on the organisation."

Having had good liquidity on both sides for the last week, normal service has resumed. Very well bid (can sell 75k at 20.1p) but can't buy diddly squat without going through a negotiated trade.Looks to me like someone is continuing to acquire stock, but brokers are being cagey to avoid over paying.

The larger trades look to be matched - so I guess it's one of the larger shareholders shuffling their holding.

Has anyone noticed the numerous, large reported trades. From the look of it they seem to be "off market": dealing going on behind closed doors I feel.

I note that Bell-Boeing have just been awarded the much anticipated third multi-year contract to supply and support the V22 Osprey.https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/bell-boeing-awarded-42-billion-for-78-v-22-ospreys-449889/I believe this could well be the initiator for ST's supply to the "airframe 1" program: no more delays would be most welcome.

I would suspect someone like him does MORE due diligence than your average insto. After all, it is his own money. And Baillie Gifford one of the best, old fashioned, long term research houses with good Scottish conservative approach to investment. Never a house to chase a story. So, hopefully he has the background and training to pick winners !

He certainly isn't infallible, and equally he is not an institutional investor.I am sure though that he does perform some due diligence and doesn't make investments like a monkey with a pin. He has made a number of very successful investments so let's hope ST becomes his next. Welcome on board Richard.

That certainly explains why the stock has been so well bid in recent times.Mr Sneller tends to "go large" and I doubt this will be the last holding announcement we hear from him.

He spent £3m on HAYT which was not exactly a raging success. I thought the RNS said the new stock had gone to institutions ?

Richard Sneller listed as a holder.Interesting....He is a fund manager at Baillie Gifford but has been an active investor in a personal capacity in several AIM companies.

There's the first new significant shareholder - Richard Sneller is a very successful small cap investor who was a fund manager at Baillie Gifford (though his large investment in ODX hasn't quite worked out...yet!)' He's bought 5.6% of SCE, or 6.9m shares: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/surface-transforms--sce-/rns/holding-s--in-company/201807030700092465T/

Yes I sense some movement too. Could be someone is wanting a bigger stake or a new stake. A steady drift upwards through the Summer would be most welcome especially as that would effectively give us a higher price just before news begins streaming in late 2018 about completion of OEM tests. Longshanks are you setting up to keep a careful eye on any particular Motor Show? Fils

It is going to take a lot higher share price for me to recycle and realise my investment. In fact I'd go so far as to say dependent on what happens the day the first volume OEM contract is announced - I may be looking to increase my holding. Why not now? I currently have enough exposure to Surface Transforms to be going on with with my current risk appetite - I think there will be plenty more upside beyond the first day of the announcement - and I think sensible investors will see this too.

Good point bdroop. CF have been trying to broaden the shareholder register for some time and the fact we have two new large holders could well encourage more liquidity. To my mind though this is also all part of the transition of the company from being a nanoscale technology developer into a mid-sized manufacturer. Such transitions often see a change in the makeup of the shareholder base as early stage investors realise and recycle their investments and new investors come in looking for revenue growth and dividends.

Maybe getting a couple of institutions onto the share register was considered a good tactical decision for the future health of the share price and was weighed up against the negatives. I think it’s a gentle positive and having cash on hand for a business ( spent wisely ) is always reassuring..

Yes it was a bit of a ruminating post. Clearly the Company decided it needed the funds and at 17p a share it appears to have sourced the funds all too easily. It means others are seeing what we are seeing - very positive. The facts it is two new IIs is also great as it strengthens the wider awareness of the market to SCE. If the share price goes up from here I have no complaints about my total holding being diluted - who would. If the IIs have less than they wanted the share price could move up through the Summer bucking what might be a general negative trend in the market as a whole. We all looked at the figures at the start of the month and thought it was tight. Now we wake up this morning knowing the funding issue over the next six months is resolved and we can look forward to news flow starting late 2018 that should really build interest in this Company. I don't think Brexit is currently disturbing the timetable - I think we are moving at the pace dictated by OEM3 and 5. I also don't think Brexit will affect the ability for SCE to get contracts in so far as the OEMS once they have made the final decision they want the product haven't really got anywhere else to go. Brexit pandemonium could cause a temporary delay if it continues right up to March 2019. However the disquiet from Industry is growing for them to know what is happening post March 2019 so hopefully the Brexit negotiations will conclude early Autumn 2018 and the stars will align for SCE to really sizzle as you say. Here's to them going out to fundraise for a second OEM cell at a much higher share price and with similar ease! My comments still remain about KJ and his options - I personally would take it is as a massive confirmatory signal if he started taking up options. Fils

I am not sure what your main point or statement is there fils.I think a fundraising was inevitable. Yes DB seemed clear the company had enough cash to see it through to full profitability in 2020 - and maybe it did - but that was before the company had appointed a proper FD and maybe that is the difference here. Either way, there has been significant strength in the market and I see that getting stronger with the share price appreciating in the run up to completion final track testing with OEM 5. Brexit is a concern for all manufacturers but ST have a niche product and are the only viable alternative supplier for automotive OEMs seeking dual-sourced supply. I think that is what has attracted these new investors. We should find out in coming days who these institutions are and that may itself inspire others to also look at taking a stake. It should be a sizzling hot summer in more than one way.

I don't know quite what to think about this fundraising - whether it is an overall positive or negative. I'm definitely wanting the days of fundraising sub 25p to be numbered and yet this fundraising has generated some interest and a rise in the share price - all to the good. Hopefully these new IIs might want to increase their stakes and it throws a spotlight onto Surface Transforms just before the Summer hiatus. Maybe the IIs suspect what I suspect - that all the action is going to take place Autumn 2018 through to Spring 2019 and they are just getting in early. However on the negative side - this fundraising is in direct contrast to comments made by David Bundred when he said he was confident the Company had sufficient funding to see them through to the announcement of a volume OEM contract. He has reiterated these comments several times with confidence. So going foward do we treat DBs comments with a pinch of salt? Also what it says to me is that the Company has decided to press for funds now and not following announcement of positive test results for OEM3 and 5 which are expected in calendar year 2018. So does this mean that the Management does not believe announcement of the successful conclusion of either of these tests will not have a material positive impact on share price which would have allowed them to raise funds at a better price? Or does it mean they need these funds to conclude the tests which means they did not have the funding to see them through to the end of 2018? I can appreciate you don't leave it to the eleventh hour to raise funds but even so. Also unless we get an announcement in the next few days - it would appear Kevin Johnson is going to allow one tranche of his share options to expire. I do wish this fund raise had been accompanied by an announcement of KJ beefing up his shareholding. Maybe Longshanks is right - maybe they were approached and SCE did not initiate this at all? When a Company is out and about in the City trying to raise funds surely word gets out on the street that this is happening? Finally DB has said he is unconcerned about the impact of Brexit and yet the Society of Motor Manufacturers is saying it is concerned about the drop in inward investment this year. Surely the post Brexit landscape needs to be firmly understood before SCE are going to get the ink drying on a volume OEM contract and if this is the case then the contract will change dependent on that landscape.

Good to hear IIs wanted to be involved, and good to see the share price responding to dilution in such a positive manner - even if it is the same IIs buying. Best of all is the demonstration of their belief that the future looks solid based on information provided.

The stock has been well bid for a while so I suspect the 750k trades are linked to one of the new institutions looking to acquire stock in the market on top of those acquired in the placing. I would be surprised if this is the end to their buying. The company clearly needed cash to get through the next six months; and these institutions were on hand to provide the cash and possibly made an unsolicited offer. Looks like a win-win to me. Most interesting is the fact that these shares were issued without needing EIS status: the buyers are probably not VC funds and could well be located in the US. Edit: Earlier you could pick up 50k at 18.5p, but the price is once more back to being tight and well bid.
