You're right about the ridiculous spread and they don't even want to trade at those prices. I'm hopeful of big contract news later in the year. Recent announcements have hinted at traction with OEMs.

Cash burn too high, uptake of disruptive technology too slow. Competitive space and share dilution. Market cap too high for current sales volumes. Sector dynamics positive and overall growth in wind v strong. Also potential retrofit and repowering market is interesting. Sub 70p I'm a buyer on newsflow. However, I'm put off by the spread and current price. I tried to buy last week at 75p but it wouldn't let me. I'd have had to buy at 77p and could only sell those today at 82p. Sure that would be 6% profit but too risky for me. I want to see higher volumes, lower spread and evidence that they are signing up large long term contracts. Manufacturing costs must be high. Lasers are not cheap either. The long term opportunity here is that they get bought out by an OEM looking to buy an off the shelf product for integration or they sub licence manufacture to an OEM under licence. Thoughts anyone?

The announcement from 26 June was for 5 lidars in Mexico but the comment from the CEO suggested follow-on orders of several hundred on a 1GW site. This could be worth €5m in revenue terms."I am pleased to announce the new order; not least due to the potential for additional orders for more LiDARs for the specific wind turbine site, which is planned to be extended to more than 1GW of capacity over the coming year. Based on our surveying of the site, even minimal annual energy production improvements of 1% constitutes a very attractive business case for rolling out the LiDAR sensors on all turbines on this site.

Nice and possibly a "must have" product but shame about the finance and sales traction - Cash burn too high (imo).

Directors all bought shares at 67.5p in a placing. Could be a good sign.

Research note from Edison today gives a decent overview... "Windar’s FY15 results were in line with our forecasts, but lower than the expectations at the time of the IPO in March 2015 because of issues with the distributor in China, which is a key market. These issues appear to have been resolved and we expect renewed activity in China to lead to a ramp-up in sales, beginning in H216." Can find full note on Edison or Research Tree websites

Back from the dead. Tipped in the Investors Chronicle WINDAR PHOTONICS Windar Photonics’ (WPHO) business also concerns the movement of air, although it is unlikely you will be familiar with its main product: a sensor placed on top of wind turbines which measures the direction and speed of the wind using a laser beam. But Windar’s LiDAR system – which reduces stress on the turbines’ components and can help generate an extra 4 per cent increase in power – will certainly be on the radar of all wind energy companies and their financiers. Sales are expected to significantly ramp up next year, when broker Edison estimates pre-tax profits will hit €12.7m (£9.1m), translating to 26¢ (19p) earnings per share. At 123.5p, that puts the shares on 7 times 2016 forecast earnings. It’s early days, but such a clearly disruptive (and patented) technology offers huge upside, beyond the early gains on the 100p listing price. Buy. Windar’s LiDAR system will certainly be on the radar of all wind energy companies and their financiers”

Brilliant piece of work Jumbone. Hats off to you. Just one point - in your post #1, I think there is an error in your spread-sheet for 2018, as you have unit sales of 36,660 being greater than the market figure of 30,500. I think the unit sales figure is 3,660 which gives total estimated unit sales of 7,470 not 40,470 and revenue of about £87m not £474m. Still makes the PER about 1x.

83.63% shares LOCKED IN FOR 18 MONTHS Only 6.2478 mill can be traded for the next 18 months. That gives a HUGE opportunity to multiply the investment several fold Shareholder post-IPO lock-ins – potential stock overhang. Shareholders representing approximately 83.63% of issued share capital have undertaken, save in limited circumstances or with the prior consent of the company and the Nomad, not to dispose of shares for a period of one year and for a further six months to sell through the Nomad. http://www.edisoninvestmentresearch.com/?ACT=18&ID=14081

Windar Photonics Innovative and disruptive low-cost LIDAR -- Edison Research Their Maximum target 242p Windar Photonics’ admission to AIM provides investors with the opportunity to participate in the anticipated strong growth phase of this industrial technology company. Windar was created to commercialise an innovative low-cost, tower-mounted light detection and ranging (LIDAR) wind measurement system designed to increase wind turbine efficiency and reduce operational wear. With initial results showing that wind turbine energy efficiency can be increased by c 1-3%, payback of system installation can be as low as six months for a large 6MW system and around three years for the most frequently installed 1.5-2MW variants. Success will be determined by the rate at which new contracts can be won. http://www.edisoninvestmentresearch.com/?ACT=18&ID=14081
