    Ten years from now this will probably a billion dollar plus company and we'll all laugh about the days when you could buy it for less than half a dollar. I look forward to those days but realize the it will be a long and bumpy road. It will be interesting to see if dagiw is right and we'll a big discount when dilution hits. Personally I'm hoping that one of the customers who is evaluating their product signs a contract before things get that far. The construction industry is just one of many large potential markets that could profit from switching to Metabolix's products.

    List of Participants In the Latest Raise

    I’m very encouraged by the amount of money put in by the Schuler family… Prior to the financing they owned roughly 15% of the company. With this financing they are nearly doubling their cash investment yet picking while picking up even greater ownership of the company.

    They talked about several key tests going on right now and those tests aren’t just to see if the products work. They are tests to see if the customers can manufacture products using M’s tech… I suspect that Schuler knows exactly what he’s investing in and is certain it’s just a matter of time before M lands a few large customers or someone big tries to buy M… Personally, I’d like to know what percentage of the company he is about to own. I highly suspect that going forward that there are only two votes that count; those are Schuler and Strobeck.

    Speaking of votes that count… Very few talk about Strobeck’s position here yet he has decided to purchase another $2,000,000.00 of additional stock. Every year for the last several years he has been one of the largest insider investors but now he is really going for it! You don’t invest that type of money unless you expect it to make you a lot of money! I’m certain those are the parameters that both Strobeck and Schuler are playing with which is why the punch bowl for shorts now appears empty rather than half full like it did before.

    I also like the fact that Giles is purchasing over a million, Scully four million, small a hundred thou, peoples two hundred thou and walsem a hundred fifty thou… It makes me want to invest a hundred thou too so if dag is right and this gets to 25c then I’ll be right there with them.

    I wish this company were already successful, but they do have hundreds of patents and they do have a few certifications and they have seen plenty of research funding so I suspect that it’s only a matter of time.

    When are earnings?

  • Is not as bad as some here claim:

    “You’ll recall that our financing plan is to raise to $50 million to $60 million over the next 12 to 15 months. To that end, we’re looking at a variety of different structures ranging from smaller staged financing to larger, more comprehensive solutions. While we’re not in the position today to say how this will all play out, what we do know is that we intend to complete at least the first phase of our financing by the end of June… Based on our current plans and projections, which remain subject to numerous uncertainties, we intend to raise $50 million to $60 million over the next 12 to 15 months… Failure to receive additional funding by the end of June 2014 will force us to delay, scale back or otherwise modify our business, operating plans, and/or pursue strategic alternatives… here’s a lot of activity around the financing, and we are talking to a bunch of different people about a variety of different structures. The focus has really been about the long term business plan and making sure that we’re securing the capital that we need to execute it. And we’re focused specifically on counter parties who share that interest… I would say that our plan to complete at least the first phase of financing by the end of June and we would expect to have a full set of information for investors about what that financing looks like when we announce it. And to complete it by the end of June, it means we’d have to announce it by the end of June.”

    Okay so failure will lead to delay, scale back, business mods or strategic alternatives… The last one there could interest short term traders because a sale of the company would probably return at least 2x from today’s price and possibly much more. In spite of what the shorts want you to think, The IP here has significant value; shopping the company for a buyer that knows how to unlock value could/should be next...

    I had June $10's that I bought months ago for around $2.20 and today was the first day that they've been worth anything... Not long ago they were down over 50%... It was so nice to see them come back :)

  • Just wondering what others think... I see a gap in the chart of a big name and highly suspect we'll see a recovery. I'm starting to see Twitter integrated with more and more television programs and suspect we're just starting to see the beginning of a big and beautiful relationship.
