  • That are not reflected in the AWRE chart. To anyone besides us who have not been following along, the stock looks like a technical disaster since May 9 of 2012.

    When so many of the market participants trade based on charts, it's no wonder Aware fails on just about every screen.

    Ariels activity in Q3 is the one I'm waiting for. Their disclosure should coincide with Q3 earnings...or lack thereof.

  • Substitute AWRE for ASEI...

    Perhaps even more concerning is the Company's failure to provide any guidance regarding its underperformance. Stockholder value will not be achieved without transparent communications detailing the reasons for any earnings shortfalls, providing specific evidence regarding how problems will be solved, and providing clear, accurate and concise guidelines for future results. By failing to adequately address the underlying causes for ASEI's underperformance, we believe the Company is missing the significant opportunities to participate in an improving economy.

    Further, management's and your lack of response to my requests for a constructive dialogue only underscores how much improvement is needed in this regard. ASEI's investor communications appear weak, disorganized and inefficient. The Company's stockholders, the true owners of the Company, are entitled to transparency and disclosure of material information. We believe the Company's failure to communicate effectively with its stockholders is one of the reasons for its dismal stock performance. This practice of disseminating minimal and ambiguous disclosure has likely caused the stock to underperform by increasing uncertainty and making it extremely difficult for potential new investors to understand the business. ASEI should adopt a formal policy of transparent and timely disclosure to all its stockholders.

  • Mr. Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO, ImageWare Systems, Inc. told us, "Fujitsu, T-Systems, and IBM are three Blue-Chip companies we have gone to market with. These large, established partners offer the support, brand name and worldwide cloud platform needed to seamlessly distribute our products. At the beginning of April, Fujitsu announced the kick-off and worldwide expansion of our partnership model with a dedicated sales team covering the Americas. Since then, Fujitsu and ImageWare have closed a three-year agreement with a major international retailer who will use the IWS CloudID® products running in the Fujitsu cloud for face, finger, iris, and voice enrollment and matching. Additionally, Fujitsu has set up proof of concept pilots with several of their major customers, with more expected in the near future, and has kicked off sales and marketing of the partnership products in Japan and China. Our partnership with T-Systems has led to a project with Deutsche Bahn, the German national railroad, who is slated to become the first customer receiving our joint product offering. We expect more to follow and anticipate this agreement will begin producing revenues in the fourth quarter."

  • Mellody Hobson-President, Ariel Investments-Wife of George Lucas and Obama bundler

    Additionally, she serves as chairman of the board of trustees for Ariel Investment Trust...Mellody earned her AB from Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of International Relations and Public Policy.

    2012 FORBES Article: Hobson, 42, was born in Chicago, the youngest of six children raised by a single mother who supported the family by buying and renovating old buildings.
