erogenous jones: FAO demonboy and kirk6 Please don't get me wrong. I have been a holder of shares in Shell for the greater part of 50 years. The energy sector not just feeds but provides employment for the world. And I have no problem with alternative sources for energy. There is enough oil in the ground to power the world for many decades - it might get more expensive to extract, but that is a different argument - but when burnt, it is dirty. Oil majors are addressing this with investment in the green option including VLS. There has been no dominant winners thus far. VLS is finished. It might be ressurrected, but only when it has undergone considerable improvement and proves itself to be a viable alternative. Thus far it has not. 2017 was a decent year for investors. 2018 was a terrible year for investors. 2019 has been a spectacular one. For VLS 2017, 2018 and 2019 were terrible. I doubt it will last for 2020. We share the same hope - that our investments will perform well. We share investment in VLS at different times, with similar hopes that our investment will do well. There is still 100% left that the share price can fall, but the balance of probability is that this is a company that will fail. At least my shares in RDSB have been paying dividends for decades and no evidence that they will be stopping. I have a buy order in place for shares in RDSB for the avoidence of doubt.

erogenous jones: Whether VLS is successful with planning consent or not is immaterial. The company will need to raise funds to remain in business. So, suppose consent is given. Just to put the infrastructure in place will absorb some cash and will take time. Time is a resource that the company does not have at all. It might permit the company to suspend dealing and appoint administrator to give some value to the assets. A fund raising with consent will need to be at a very deep discount and with little or no evidence that it will have support. Short of a miracle, the share price will not recover. But if consent is delayed, denied or has special conditions imposed, I wager the company will run out of money, has little prospect to raise more and will have either to appoint adminstrators or as a minimum put the for sale notice up. Shares are priced to bring in speculative punters. Still too expensive, IMO

erogenous jones: jotoha2, I suggest that you really do not have a head for figures, as quite how you have concluded that a good 50% have been moderated is a mystery to me. I suggest your research is both insufficient and flawed. The facts are clearly stated by the managers that the company will run out of money within 12 months of the last financial statement. That the company has IP rights and advanced this to its current state does not provide the assurance that it is commercially viable. I have every confidence that the process will be very important in the future, however, the process needs to be very much more developed than it is now and any company that uses the Fischer-Tropsch process will need to demonstrate a return on investment OR provide a compelling case for investment. VLS, has made a compelling case for investment and has been supported by its major and minority shareholders. Right now, it simply has run out of time and money for further investment based on the failure of all the projects to date. You probably were not around when Roy Lipski departed without any explanation in 2015. There has been all maner of speculation, but, and it is simply a hunch, my suspicion is that the basis of the valuation of the company under his direction and the fundraising for that was based on mis-information or mis-interpreted results. Basically, I feel that there is actually no advantage for the company to continue in business. If the IP is sold (either through administration or liquidation), it will provide another company with e head start that IS able to commercialise the process. You are, however entirely correct in your assertion that the risk:reward element is massive. I thoroughly applaud a high risk strategy. There is a difference between risk and reckless when it comes to finance. I believe that the case for investing in VLS at the moment is reckless. You think otherwise. Your hope for an upturn in the share price and fortunes for VLS is admirable. But, the longer that goes on where revenues remain insubstantial and investors desert the shares, so the triumph of hope over reality will persist. Incidentally, I re-opened this thread as, perverse though it might seem, I do have a very keen interest that the company will succeed. I do not recall why I moderated 2 posts. At the time this thread was to maintain my promise not to post on that initiated by Gac141.

erogenous jones: Well, let's do some maths with the assumption that planning is approved. A lift in the share price is the obvious one - by how much, 20% perhaps 25%? Let's be generous and go for a full 100%. This will take the share price back to the point about a months ago. Will this be enough to enable the company to raise funds? Highly unlikely, I would have thought for the very simple reason that investors want to have a return on their capital and the company has burned its way through many millions of pounds and has nothing meaningful to show for it. I repeat that this is not a business. With planning in place, it is quite possible that the company is attractive for takeover though this might be reflected in the markup

erogenous jones: Turn happenned yet, Kirk 6? No, seriously, I note that some research has been made by a relative newcomer to the financial pundits - it can be read behind a paywall - and the shares are now plumbing a new low. Look, one of the "rules" for investors is that sometimes an investment goes sour. Get over it and preserve capital. My crystalised loss (£36k) in VLS pales into insignificance with the claimed exposure you have to this company and the paper loss in place. At the moment, VLS is NOT a viable business. It will not be a viable business until revenues exceed expenses. Currently it is a leech. Shell for example could buy this company every day for many years and it would not make the least impact on either the revenues of Shell or the revenues that VLS are generating. You are clutching at straws. I repeat my comment that companies that suffer a 90% drop in their share price rarely survive. The liklihood of VLS surviving beyond another fund raising is about nil. Abramovitch needs losses from time to time to reduce his tax liability. It would be better that the company folds than it would be for the share price to double from its present position. You can continue to "average down" if you wish, I don't actually care a hoot whether you lose the lot, break even or make a fortune, but IF the company is viable, it will be snapped up from under your nose and your holding, significant it might be for you, will have no influence whatsoever.

owenski: BP advertising on TV about converting waste food into jet fuel Obviously, VLS isn't the only game in town, BP must have or be funding their own GTL process. VLS share price deffo looking like there's a problem.

fluky: My assumptions/scenarios were posted in #3343 & 3345. Here they are: #3343: Velocys cannot survive this year without a cash injection. There are a few scenarios to get to year's end: 1. Another raise at approx 50p - probability: 5% - Will run into shareholders opposition because last round was at 225p unless VLS could grant them a deal. 2. An acquisition by a strategic partner - probability: 80% - would mean that the VLS shares are converted into cash and/or shares of the acquirer 3. VLS goes out of business - probability: 15% If VLS stays in business I'll go for 125p at Christmas 2017. I'll go for zero in the other cases. In the latter case, the shareholders will have cash or shares equivalent to 55p VLS share price. I discard the "going out of business" scenario. Thoughts? I added later a 4th scenario, responding to Fern's comment: #3345: Good point. Let's add scenario #4: RA takes VLS private and buys out the other shareholders at 55p - probability 30%. Probability of scenario #2 goes down to 50%. Fern5: what do you think? ------- Now that I retrieved my old posting, I am surprised about my prediction of the raise at 50p...

pugugly: Another possible drag on the vls share price "More pipelines form part of a wider, deflationary trend of rising energy supply that is likely under President Trump (see this). That means not only gas markets, but also coal miners and even power generators will feel the effects as those ripples grow more intense" https://www.bloomberg.com/gadfly/articles/2017-02-06/new-gas-pipeline-approvals-here-comes-the-monster.

gac141: Ok so here is the question. If you firmly believe that VLS share price is inextricably linked to the price of Oil (Which I do not but I'll come to that) Then on or about the 8th of December 2015 the price of Brent was $42...and VLS share price was 50p then why has the price languished at circa 30p? As I have said before we are not an Oil producer we make very high spec Diesel and Jet fuels and we also make Speciality Products that can sell for as much as $240/b. So with all this what is keeping it down...? I would like to see Velocys be more transparent about the projects not in the public domain and I will say this to them. Maybe the market thinks we will fail to get enough traction..I cannot see this with our first commercial plant in East Oak about to start in a few months producing all of the above... Maybe the market is waiting for that as a Catalyst perhaps the delays in the projects in the public domain have made people wary..it is possible. Red Rock has been months away from FID for quite a while now but they seem to have friends in Lake View so it must only be a matter of time. Ashtabula- The water permit has been granted. Product off-takers and gas suppliers have been identified and a number of letters of intent are in place. The company has secured letters of support from a major lender and a potential investor in the project. I guess watch this space- Exceptionally cheap feed stock from the Marcellus must make this a very viable proposition to make serious money. Greensky out but another to take it's place and British Airways still saying they will do something here. Oil price is rising and maybe will hit $50 once freeze is agreed on the 17th April. Results out in April so an opportunity for VLS to tell all or at least be a little more open. I shall be putting some my shares into an ISA quite a few more than last year so there are pluses as well as minuses so hope they do well. Exceptionally frustrating but also maybe a good opportunity to take a balanced punt over the next few months?
