I have wanted to ask this on ihub, but I haven't been able to figure out what bothers the moderators. I'm asking here because if someone is setting terms for couch to post, I wouldn't mind knowing what the terms are for me to post. Half of my posts or more are deleted within a few minutes. Is the information providing guidelines on what you can and can't say available? I've scanned the ihub board and nothing pops out (but what would its such a clutter of things). If it was in the user's agreement, well, I don't read those (does anyone?). But you seem to have an idea since you may be a master deleter over their. I am guessing there is software running in the background looking for a list of unacceptable words, but there is obviously also content and intent so someone is reading them, thus it is a bit subjective.
BTW, Couch you called it that my post would be deleted. I have an idea that it was one particular word in it....which I knew, while could be said on any tv station any time of day, probably wasn't lady like, but it sure expressed my feelings accurately!!!
You hit the nail on the head! There are too many investors who if they don't get a payoff in a month they throw a fit and declare a company a pump and dump scam. And many have no ability to calmly wait out a loss, which in a development stage company is almost always a given for at least awhile. I don't think these type of investors make much money. Which is their problem. They make it all of our problems (or at least announce) by whining and moaning on the boards asking other investors to calm their fears. But I don't think its a now versus the old-days thing. Its just back in the day there were no message boards onto which they could copiously and anonymously whine.
I never saw that Elite ever set a schedule for the Human Liability studies. They were late on the second bioequivalence. If I had attended 'the' meeting I would not of asked about the Human Liability studies because it was made clear on a previous quarterly call these are very expensive ( 1 plus million per test, and each drug needs about 4 to 5 tests) and would be done but later down the road after either a partner was invested, or if they went alone they had means to raise the cash. So the possibility of their even setting a date is just now on the possible horizon. I also wouldn't of asked because they said this meeting was not intended to be put out previously unannounced information because all investors wouldn't have access to the information. Anyone asking a question about when are the abuse deterrent trials would of looked like a Dumb butt and wasted their breath. This is a topic for the call in June. I expect it will be brought up then and if not, I am confident Couch or someone else will ask.
If you are long the stock, hopefully understanding these tests are not late puts your mind at ease. BTW, I agree that at this point in time these are the most important results to ensure success for the company and its investors.
In my experience with shareholder meetings they don't talk business at shareholder meetings because they legally can't reveal anymore to attendees then they do to everyone. Have you experienced differently? I think the recent big sells correlated with people banking on de novo this week. After reading alot more about that I basically learned that almost always means clinical data needed (animal or people) so it will be several more months.
but there is just no interest. Volume is not very large so no one big is dumping, just people deciding to get out. Wish I had anticipated this and held off buying over a dollar. Pop up may not come until revenue is documented in next 10K.
The choice he has if he thinks it is failing is to stop putting money into it. Him using $10,000 of his personal money to buy common shares is not going to do anything for the company if they don't get FDA approval. The only reason he would do that is if he felt it was a good investment. He already has and runs a successful profitable company. If ADMD were going no where he cut his losses and focus on that company. If your looking for dumb try a mirror as an insider willing to buy more common shares not protected from bankruptcy any more then the ones I own is definitely a vote of confidence.
Thank you, this type of helpful information is why I participate on boards. I have wondered for sometime why some companies report much earlier than others.
Its not my job to explain their financials. They need to start having quarterly conference calls. I am not too worried about the consulting fees. I believe it is a one off in getting their business going. They have several irons in the fire and seem to be making progress on several at once. For example the legalities and business decisions for setting up the showcase center for MGs was probably a third of that (an LLC, agreement with whomever is going to manufacture the ordered parts etc). Equity compensation could be to the new board members. For example the navistar exec who is providing his contact information and clout probably expects money in return (the in the form of shares, which typically is in the millions). Bottom line not many small caps get to the point of having revenue. And this company has the potential for lots lots more if they can stay on track. I'm staying in, but want to see revenues increase and such expenditures decrease (or stay well below revenues).
Earnings are for the end of their fiscal year a 10 K (versus a normal quarter a 10Q) so it will be around the 19th to 21st of June. Look back at previous filings for the typical date. Not sure why but all companies I own have a month delay for the yearly report. The other quarters are reported on the 14th or 15th of Nov, Feb, and Aug.
They just announced yesterday they sold 1 million of mobile generators and were paid $500k up front (that is in their pocket now). It will be on next quarters 10K. In Oct to Dec 10K they said they expected revenue second quarter of FY 14 (next quarter), and in this 10K (Jan to Mar) they said they expected first revenue second quarter of FY 14 (next quarter) so the last two 10Ks they said the same date, and they have apparently pulled it off. Its interesting to see people sell the news of the first revenue, but I'm not worried, I have seen this happen before on small stocks. In the mobile generator business they will not land accounts, but have orders. I think the other technologies are not as manufacturable ready. Another possibility is the big boys are testing prototypes like ESSCO did. That can take months (as a respectable company will want to run pumps for a few months under severe conditions to validate performance). The last two 10Ks were also consistent in both estimating profitability in FY 15.
I didn't see that trials were requested yet, but they had asked the question. So I'm still hopeful they won't be necessary. From my reading many times for medical devices they can get away with animal trials (which I though UW had already done). The FDA website also tries to say if they are human they do not need to be extensive. Any hoo, given the changes, I'm thinking approval might be end of summer and believe they can wait that out. I agree they have already been up classified, but the new process is for how to deal with that outcome when it happens. As they have been very forthcoming in saying they are weighing their options on what to do next, I think they may be waiting for the new and improve process before proceeding. The fact they seemed to be doing nothing was driving me crazy. Now I think its a good approach. But would still like to know why they didn't petition for de novo. I read several of the documents that have to be sent in for de novo for other medical devices (all available on-line) and they are not that long or complicated. I'm not sure what it could of hurt. I also want to reiterate that a consultant, and probably a medical device consultant (maybe even the one whose name has been tossed around on these boards), gave them services in exchange for only their stock. That is a big positive too.
They indicate they are still evaluating there options and trying to figure out if trials are an option. I think if they had submitted a de novo petition requesting FDA to make a risk-based classification determination for the device under section 513(a)(1) of the FD&C Act they would of legally had to say that in the 10-Q. I would love to know why they didn't at it seemed a good fit. But I don't see them answering that. They did manage to trade shares for consulting services in Feb. and Mar. which means they convinced someone they had a chance. But no consulting services since. So if they are weighing their options I'm not sure how they are doing it. A flood of stock at a penny or hundreds of pennies a share is not going to go very far.
But frankly I think the company is toast :(
Looks like the inflection was a million dollar sale of MG with 500k down payment. People selling the stock at 1.1 must not be keeping up with the news. I expect sales will increase once showcase opens. BTW, having lived in Fl for almost a decade there isn't a better place to market such mobile generation. One hurricane (even a tiny II) frequently knocks power out for days, they are a necessity for most everyone (although as a home owner, I wouldn't want an MG, but utility and clean up crews do).
Post on full of poop site that is such a joke. I'm positive on ELTP, but not on ridiculous lies. We don't need a fake pumper campaign. It will happen on its own the right way.
There all engineers, they know what that word means so they should know the expectations they are setting with that statement. Hopefully this conference will mean news of revenue in hand or imminent.
"We believe that our business has reached an inflection point that will find a great deal of interest at the forum as we present our progress and plans for the future to a group of potential institutional shareholders."
The other companies presenting have much higher value and most positive P/E ratios. It looks like they were invited late (others announced the first week of May), but maybe it does mean they have meaningful, new, information. I think we are also close to time for the 10K.
It is very common for small cap start ups use their stock to 'hire' companies to promote their stock . These companies develop a reputation of marketing only for reputable legit companies to their investor network. The first company you referenced is actually one of the better ones that doesn't take just anyone as a client, you have to prove to them you are worth them using their credibility on. If there were adds out in penny stock rags or recommendations in mass emails I would be worried, but what you describe it reality in the world of start ups.
Besides from what you describe they only spent a bit over 100k on investor relations in 2013. Thats because they are getting visibility through their own achievements But my main reason for not worrying they are a scam is that a scam doesn't get to present to, much less get funding from LPC. Not all of LPC funding pays off, but none of it is made to a fake company.
You sound like a short who is a bit worried about today's turn around that occurred because the downward pressure from Spirit Bear has passed.
That said, I don't want to hear they are pushing revenue out another quarter!
