dave_natch: "the first emerald fuel cells are being shipped to customers" - that kind of news, this kind of company, there should be an increase in share price. but, nothing... shows how little confidence the market has!
jim_black: Growth Company Investor Voller Energy - SPECULATIVE BUY Companies: VLR 20/07/2005 'We will be the first fuel cell play to reach profitability,' claims Stephen Voller, chief executive of Voller Energy, which floated on AIM with a £9.1m funding at 74p in February. The Basingstoke-based company makes portable fuel cell systems for use as battery chargers and mobile generators. Its VE100 – a 100-watt portable fuel cell system that runs off rechargeable hydrogen-infused metal hydride cylinders – has already launched and might well deliver meaningful sales this year. The VE100 uses a fuel cell stack and incorporates Voller's power output technology and integration know-how – and a forthcoming next-generation product should deliver far more power, helping Voller attack a wider market for portable generators. Voller has also side-stepped a perennial fuel cell industry problem – supplying hydrogen to power fuel cells – with the recent acquisition of KAT-Chem, a developer of hydrogen reformer technology. Reformers extract hydrogen from propane, liquid petroleum gas and butane, and the deal means Voller's systems can use existing fuel infrastructures without having to wait around for a new hydrogen infrastructure to emerge, a crucial point given Voller's target markets of building services, camping and boating. Voller also boasts a letter of intent with tool hire star Speedy Hire, which will be the launch customer in the UK for the VE100 and larger brethren the VE1000. For June 2006, house broker Arden Partners predicts pre-tax losses of £2.3m on only £994,000 sales, ahead of a £2.25m deficit from a top line £2.4m the following year. For June 2008, however, Voller might well score first profits of £600,000 on £14.5m sales. Voller offers investors exposure to the imminent commercialisation of the fuel cell industry. The shares have speculative appeal. Elliott Davis Market cap: £10.9m PE Forecast: n/a Share price: 47.5p
barn owl: Nice video, shame about the share price. Perhaps they should now delist, show the video and do a sales pitch on Dragons Den! Good luck all.
paulypilot: Hi, Excellent news that they're doing a strategic review to explore ways of maximising shareholder value. I actually wrote to the company urging them to sell the company a few days ago. Burning up the rest of the cash is not an option. Nor is a highly dilutive new issue of shares. As a major shareholder I would rather see the company taken over, and get some of my money back, than sit & watch further declines in the share price as the cash runs out. It's a disappointing outcome, but the share was always highly speculative. Why they need to employ Deloittes to do a Strategic Review, is quite beyond me. I used to work for a big firm of Accountants, and these sorts of reviews essentially involve interviewing management, then giving them a report telling them what they told you, and charging £25k+ for the privilege !!! The fact is that the stock market does not like this company at all, and I can't see that sentiment changing in the foreseeable future, regardless of what the company does, or what news it puts out. So might as well sell it to the highest biddder, and move on. I'd be very displeased if the exit price was below net asset value of 16p/share - they should be able to get at least that price for it, surely ? Anyway, let's see what transpires. Good that the "for sale" sign is up anyway. Regards, Paul.
giltspur: Pauly has changed his tune - initially he was promoting it on here but now that he has lost about 50% of his investment, "it's just a punt" He's justifying his own trading failure by saying he can afford to lose it. The fact remains, as far as I can judge, that VLR have yet to produce a competitive product yet I have no doubt they continue to pay themelves huge amounts of money for their efforts. The average pay, not including perks, for a AIM boss is £125K pa. If he was in Leeds Uni banging on about his law he would get about £22k pa. Now we know its peanuts to Pauly but 125K pa is a lot of money to me - certainly no one has ever paid me that amount of money for achieving nothing. Therefore, if I'm to part with my hard earned on this project I want to see some action - what I have seen so far is PR and nothing else. The other strange proposal is Pauly's ludicrous suggestion that cash on hand equates to some support for the share price? It's absolute nonsense to suggest a share price is supported by cash on hand. Is he suggesting that someone would buy the company for the remaining cash? Rubbish, Pauly, you really will have to do better. Have any of their outlets actually sold anything to anyone yet?
jimelson: Tell me why this company has just let its share price go down the pan along with there money? Surely it has been obvious for some time that they would need more moeny and why did they not try to raise more money when the share price was at a higher level. Theres no hope for it now without total refinancing surely? Whatever happens surely original investers at 75p and even 20p and maybe 10p will get diluted so much its just a farce!!!
doyouwantfries: Here's todays news mentioned on this site. I think he got VLR share price a bit wrong. Heres hoping he had a crystal ball!
paulypilot: Hi, Rover - re your post 2147. With respect the price has nothing to do with the Market Makers. They just reflect whatever 2-way business they have. And the reality is that there has been sustained selling of VLR shares by shareholders, interspersed only with sporadic buying on announcements. That's why the share price has been lacklustre. It's a complete fallacy to think that MM's are constantly manipulating share prices. What drives share prices is the underlying balance of buyers & sellers. That said, personally I suspect interest in VLR could dramatically increase over the next 6-months as their 1kw product nears market launch. With only 23m shares in issue, personally I agree with roverisback that a share price of 100p (£23m mkt cap) is entirely reasonable. Regards, Paul.
kiwimatt75: It's a bit long, but here you are... Executive Summary Share price – 30/34p bid/offer (price at 1/1 22p) Shares in issue – 23,000,513 Market cap – £7.36m (at mid market) You may know of Voller's bigger brothers in the Fuel Cell industry, ITM and CWR, which VLR shares many characteristics with, but differs on two major fronts; its share price seems to lag behind, and they actually have something in the market place (note that Ceres also have a small amount of sales but are currently valued at 1270x sales compared to Voller 49x). The share price has drifted down from highs in the mid 70's April last year but in the last month or two has started to tick up, and in recent times seems to be gaining momentum. Background Voller's products are "aimed at recharging the batteries used in cordless tools in the construction industry, generating power for the leisure industry and for use in the military." "Statement of Purpose We enable our customers to access clean, affordable, high performance power wherever they are, through the application of our core enabling technology in fuel cell systems. We create value by: - Penetrating early adopting markets for fuel cells - Developing fuel processor technology to exploit existing fuel infrastructures - Strengthening our IP and Know-how" Further they go on to say that the company is run by "Vollers Law" "Consumers will not pay a premium to be environmentally friendly nor will they accept a performance degradation to be environmentally friendly." This may explain why they are not selling many units or making much money at the moment... The company history so far: "2002 - Founded by Stephen Voller and Mike Clarke 2003 - Launched the world's first hand-held fuel cell system 2004 - Shipped products through international distributors 2005 - Listed on the London Stock Exchange (AIM) 2006 - CE approved products in 2006 Speedy Hire catalogue, launched fuel cell ABC and RBC 2007 - 1kW propane fuel cell system" (This hasn't happened yet but is expected later in the year). Financial timeline Year end – 30 June Preliminary announcement – September AGM – October Interim announcement – March The last technical update was issued on 11 November 2006 Directors Stephen Voller, Chief Executive Officer (Number of Shares: 2,857,150 Percentage of company: 12.4%) John Brown FCCA, CTA, Chairman (666,000, 2.9%) Mike Clarke, Chief Operating Officer (1,904,750, 8.3%) Dr Robin Francis, Chief Technology Officer(0,0) Colin Bonsey FCA, Finance Director and Company Secretary (47,027, 0.2%) David Cranston CBE, Non-executive Director (13,514, 0.06%) David Port, Non-executive Director (16 865, 0.07%) Results to date I don't believe that results show much in a development company such as Voller, as I always expect that a share like this is going to be somewhat of a punt anyway... Having said that I am impressed with the control that Voller seem to have on their outgoings, the directors remuneration seems acceptable to me (a max for the CEO and COO of £144k – although this was a 50% pay rise from 2005), the accounts appear to a layman like myself to be clear and easy to read, always an encouraging sign for me. Voller has reported growing losses each year, although these are inline or marginally below their expectations. 2006 2005Turn over £120,000 £42,000 Operating loss £2,052,000 £983,000Loss before taxation £1,710,000 £812,000Cash £6,784,000 £8,429,000 Outlook statements The last technical update was issued on the 28th of November 2006 and was very upbeat, The first line reads "Major milestone achieved ahead of schedule - remains on track to deliver commercial systems by the end of 2007" It can be read here; I was very surprised that the market did not react favorably to this RNS, although I guess there is an element of lets wait and see if it does what they say on the tin especially with some of the (sometimes) outrageous claims companies in this sector have made. On the 9th of February 2007 Voller also released the following RNS: "Voller Energy Group PLC has appointed Seymour Pierce as its Nominated Adviser and Broker with immediate effect." I take this as an upgrade to a more fashionable broker than their previous brokers, Arden Partners; with a view to getting them more exposure in the market place and perhaps looking towards another placement of shares to pick up the shortfall in cash reserves (see the forecast below). Forecasts There is a brokers report by Westhall Capital dated 1/02/2007 which can be read here; They predict that Voller will be profitable by 2011, although they go on to say that at the current rate of cash burn they will run out of money in 2009... If nothing else it is worth reading as it contains quite a nice technology briefing on what a fuel cell is and how they work. Conclusion What impresses me about Voller is the apparent marketing nouse shown by the directors, they have been first to market with a product (you can hire their early battery charger from Speedyhire), they have also been deliberately targeting a product that can work with what is available at the moment and also easily modifiable to work with new advances in technology (whether theirs or their competitors) as and when they happen. They also have a product that is useful now (even more so with the impending introduction of the VE600) as this unit will have their fuel reformer technology included which extracts the Hydrogen that the fuel cell needs from commonly available Calor Gas, LPG or Propane. I believe that the whole renewable energy/fuel cell sector is going to get a rerating this year; you only have to pick up any newspaper to see that energy efficiency is becoming the fashionable environmental concern. As one of the cheaper shares in this sector (the average price/sales ratio is 125ish, Voller is just under 50) Voller should benefit most. Also Voller has some significant milestones to pass this year, the successful commercial release of their first big money earner the VE600 towards the end of the year should help give the share price a real lift. Disclosure: I am currently long Voller (in at 64p, out at 26, back in at 22 and 31)
super boy plunger: Well, time to stop and sort out the wheat from the chaff, and make a broad judgement by taking a strong view over the next 12 months or so. The VLR share price is currently at around flotation price and announcements will kick start any time. For anyone short - if anyone is stupid enough to short a new issue with illiquid market - then best to avoid the train here as the market will love this stock to a level much higher than where we currently are imo. The only direction for Voller over the coming weeks is upwards as buyers are bound to dominate proceedings. The price could ''turn'' violently upwards. Any reasonable investor can see the wisdom of buying in at Voller right now. There will be very little selling at the current level and even traders could make a packet here over the next month or two. This is the best risk/reward story around imo and turning point this week, all IMHO. SB
