  • Still not sure why Apple feels the need to justify a mediocre technology and overpay for it. If Apple wanted to introduce better earphones and streaming options, they could easily do so for less than $3B. Definitely seems to be overpaying to jump into the market. Not a sign of great internal development.

    The agreement simply states that to if Soex doesn't do $15M in 2016, Dais can terminate it. Look back to 2009, they had a similar agreement for $200M in China that they received no revenue on except the initial deposit. Seems more like a case of the company pushing out misleading press releases to pump the stock. The financials of the company still don't add up. Also there was the big sale planned of one of the major shareholders, if it was such a good deal, why exit now?

    New Value of Dais is .04

    Will be interesting to see if the deal consumates itself. Past deals have fallen apart with Dais picking up some change in the process (this time it is only $50K), but placing a $0.04/share valuation on a capital raise is pretty bleak I agree, especially given where they have been the past couple of years. Given they are also issuing 3+ million to a broker, makes it even worse. Haven't done the math, but they should be getting close to the 100 million share total issue. Then they get into the preferred which will make it more difficult for the common stock holders. Unfortunately, the fundamentals aren't there, and without that, you are left with the personnel, which with the same management having run the company for over 10 years, is not a good bet given the track record.

    CFO Resigns... Company being sold?

    Stock now at 3.5 cents, so continuing a downward trend. (A great time to buy if you like high risk). Yes, I believe the CFO was a defection and likely to see others before it is over. The NanoClear holds great promise, however it has been touted repeatedly by the company over the years, including the multiple Chinese opportunities. So I would question whether it is real and cost effective. Seems like they can make it only work for demos.

    Looks like a new board member was added. Seems like he bought a place there with prior investment, so should be interesting. Maybe he can help turn it around. Still doubtful.

    CFO Resigns... Company being sold?

    Sale?? Resignation of CTO last year, CFO this year, who's next? Generally don't see defections prior to a sale. $48K per year for a CFO outside the area, that is "renewing" his CPA License, sounds like it isn't active which is a question. From the prior Dais SEC filings, Richardson Patel and Mr. DiChiara had been involved in Dais' attempts to raise funds. Based on their last quarterly filings, funds are definitely needed to stay afloat.

    Stock Sale

    Helps provide a voice to counter all those on here with an "agenda" to drive the stock price up. Any potential small investors need be aware. I can easily post to other sites, but when I look at all the companies and stocks I have owned, Dais falls at the very bottom of the barrel. Over two decades with no results is a track record that is hard to run away from. The Board and Management appear to be cozy or closely aligned. I am not aware of any shareholder meetings or votes that give the shareholders any say in the running of the business.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • craig_stevens by craig_stevens Jul 24, 2013 12:10 AM Flag

    Looks like Dais raised a few more dollars ($235K) by selling stock off at $0.10 per share. With it trading down to $0.08 today, not sure that it was a savvy investor, albeit an accredited one according to their release. Should be interesting to see what the Q2 report says in a couple of weeks.

    Unless your average is 0, not sure how much more time you can give them. Good luck and hopefully I am wrong and they turn it around. The track record doesn't bode well for that. though.

    If you have a good experience you tell one person, if you have a poor experience you tell 10. Having invested in successful tech companies, as well as tech failures (and bankruptcies), Dais stands out as one of those in which the company hype far exceeds the company's results or capabilities. When you look at the technology and opportunities, you are lured in. The management (which has been in place since the beginning and failed to perform) has demonstrated an inability to generate anything other than hopeful press releases. After seeing the many press releases on China, HVAC, ERVs and other systems, to then see them move out of ERVs and not really progress on any front, you have to question the operation and management and long term viability. When the only positive press over a 10 year period comes from the company itself and there is no resulting follow on, it raises serious questions.

    So with a negative experience, you tell 10 others.

    It was interesting to see the investment trigger in the employment agreement press release (June 14) for the COO,: "After the completion of an offering of the Company's common stock greater than $2 million to an investor who, at the time of the investment, does not own or control shares in the Company, Executive's salary shall be increased to $160,000 per annum."

    Since there are no S1's filed, one has to question what Dais is up to and what value they are now applying to the company. Given the last attempt to get the HK investors in at $0.10, which failed, definitely raises concerns.

    Seems to be more of their own BS. For a science based firm to continually toot their own horn with no independent verification of the process or results is a bit of grandstanding. Given management's past record of spinning press releases to hype the stock and suck a few more investors into the fold, this seems to fit the pattern. Continuing science experiment and sale to China (funny how China keeps coming up when they are looking for money).

    Noticed the continuing BS that the company serves up as news. Re-hash prior releases and continue speculating on the future. Interesting that things that have been in "beta" and advertised as near completion for years needs the grant to continue towards commercialization. Either raises a question about the viability of the technology or the competence of the leadership.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Losses of $306K on revenue of $620K. Almost 50% loss. $18K in cash and cash equivalents. Management team down to CEO and CFO according to web site. A weak bench and balance sheet for a technology/R&D company.

    Yes, it is back on, but a pretty poor showing on their site at this point. Little to no real information and no contact info. Seems to be a painful integration at best. Dais' site is still up and makes no reference to Multistack, so not sure if they are competing for sales or not.

    No, Dais has no batteries. They talk about a capacitor, but that is far different from a battery.

    You are correct on the Q4 Sales. With the $150K in deposit counted as revenue, their growth was 4.3% YoY. If that is excluded, their growth was flat. Given the promise of the technology over the last 10 years, hardly the desired result.

    Not sure what new math you are using but mine was spot on and based on reported numbers. Licensing generally reduces revenue not increasing it.

    With the 10K, they announced that the Green Valley investment hadn't been made.
    The Operating results show a ($1.2M) loss on the $3.6M sales level, excluding amortization, impairment and interest charges, add any of these and the losses are even greater. The "income" was due to warrant valuation changes, which isn't real income.

    Wonder if there will be an 8K announcement today regarding the Green Valley investment (or lack thereof) since it is the end of the quarter and was due on Jan 25 per the 8K filed in December. Should be an interesting quarter. Expectations are revenue down due to the Conserv systems now being licensed and built by Multistack, delayed investment. The only good thing is that they wiped off the debt so immediate pressures are gone.
