    Carrier royalty unpaid.

    ".... Earned royalties of approximately $0.8 million and $1.4 million were unpaid as of June 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013, respectively, and are included in accrued expenses in the accompanying balance sheets." $2.2 million more to add to cpst misery. With cpst current total assets at $3.4 million, one more straw to break the camel's back. The only remedy left is another dump of cpst shares on the market

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

      In September 2007, the Company entered into a Development and License Agreement (the “Development Agreement”) with UTC Power Corporation (“UTCP”), a division of United Technologies Corporation. The Development Agreement engaged UTCP to fund and support the Company’s continued development and commercialization of the Company’s 200 kilowatt (“C200”) microturbine. Pursuant to the terms of the Development Agreement, UTCP contributed $12.0 million in cash and approximately $0.8 million of in-kind services toward the Company’s efforts to develop the C200. In return, the Company pays UTCP an ongoing royalty of 10% of the sales price of the C200 sold to customers other than UTCP until the aggregate of UTCP’s cash and in-kind services investment has been recovered and, thereafter, the royalty will be reduced to 5% of the sales price. In August 2009, the Development Agreement was assigned by UTCP to Carrier Corporation (“Carrier”). On January 14, 2011, the Company entered into an amendment to the Development Agreement with Carrier. The amendment amends the royalty payment from a certain percentage of the sales prices to a predetermined fixed rate for each microturbine system covered by the amendment. This predetermined fixed rate will be reduced by 50% once the aggregate of Carrier’s cash and in-kind services investment has been recovered. Carrier earned approximately $0.8 million and $0.9 million in royalties for C200 and C1000 Series system sales during the first quarter of Fiscal 2014 and Fiscal 2013, respectively. Earned royalties of approximately $0.8 million and $1.4 million were unpaid as of June 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013, respectively, and are included in accrued expenses in the accompanying balance sheets

      • I made the post above because I was looking at Ballard over the last two weeks.

        (Thu, Sep 26) Ballard Power expects $11M in contract revenue

        (Thu, Oct 3) Ballard Announces U.S. Offering

        Don't bet your kids' lunch money on a sure thin...where the heck are the contracts with $$$ attached?

        Of note, I have NEVEREVERNEVER agreed with Sternip before tonight, and I am frequently wrong. Can a Brainiac tell me why they did not pay their royalties?

        If big news next week, then I'll be happy...I guess that I am still a bit spooked by last quarter's numbers and call...fool me once and all that...

        Sill long, but would love to read some real news.
