    The CEO of this outfit is so over-rated its a disgrace. His part was to pull a fast track on every one on the technical side and then try to figure out what to do next. I have an idea. Resign. Anyone can do better so try the Public Relations and attorney guy. NOW.

    Mr. Fasnacht Resigns as Executive VP.

    Yes. Things like this do take time and unfortunately the patents are also on a time and money clock thanks to the actions of Congress some years ago with the addition of the "maintenance Fee" unconstitutional blackmail. If not paid when due can short-term the life of a patent. That is in part why time is of the essence. Another is the time it takes to ramp up a product for commercial production. Waiting for any news of that is gut wrenching. Investors need hope and information in the meantime to avoid complete loss of interest.

    I feel sorry for all the talented inventors of the technology who have to sit and wait for the worthless manager who grabbed the Exclusive License away remains unable to perform on anything. Probably because the money has been blown away already. The Inventors need to form a group and demand action or take the exclusive away from the losers. Their time is up.

    New Patent 9,306,184

    I want NanoFlex Power management to bother themselves and let us know if this new Patented technology will come under the "Exclusive License Agreement". And, why they haven't bothered to say anything about it. And, has an application for patent been sent by NanoFlex to other nations securing the ownership of this technology.

  • reported to be going into bankruptcy. This is a disaster for many investors. What technology can our management geniuses offer them that will save them millions? Anything? Nothing! Wake up out there.

    I think it already has filled their pockets. But now even a sale of their Exclusive ownership of the patents and/or applications to another for commercial production may not be feasible due to the debt they have accumulated. All depends on the value of their technology. Their in ability to do anything with it is astounding and without technical sales people covering the world makes "Time of the Essence".

    I too noticed that the management of the company is cleaning up after doing nothing of any consequence to have ever earned what they skimmed off. Actually they should be removed before a bankruptcy becomes the result of their actions.

    I believe their actions have damaged the integrity of the company and most likely scared off numerous potential investors who want nothing to do with this kind of management. They have so far built a monstrous debt and then rewarded themselves on their failure. There's no money for them to even do any advertising of all the technology acquired and now going down the drain with no license agreements to obtain any royalty income. Pathetic.

    I agree 100%. Well done and very impressive.

  • When you receive an "Exclusive License Right" to patent property it most often is under a time certain to perform on that license right or it automatically converts to a "Non-Exclusive License". Meaning that only the patent owners can license anyone they want at any royalty they want and collect it all.

    This management has failed. Patents are a property where "Time is of the Essence." They begin and end on a date certain. In between time there is an ever increasing "maintenance fee" slapped on the patents by the USPTO. With over 700 or more patents these fees become huge. For every month this non performing management fiddles along the cost becomes enormous. But worst of all they are loosing the lifetime income potential of the patents. Yet they sit there refusing to keep others advised on their activity. That is outrageous and needs looked at carefully. Most certainly somewhere in the pile of patents there is something of value and they better reach out to others in the solar business for someone who knows what to do before they are bankrupt. If I were one of the patent owners I would be on their #$%$ every single day beginning now. Or take away their "Exclusive".

  • rawco rawco Mar 16, 2016 3:53 PM Flag

    There's another issue here. The management of this company had no business sucking up all those patents with an "Exclusive License" if they didn't have a clue how to build the business. What did they think they were going to do them all. They are either going to have to build a production operation on a development or turn the patents over to another owner who will agree to set up a business. At worst they should lose their "Exclusive " rights by a date certain should they fail to obtain contracts for royalty income. The inventors are most likely getting feed up as they too are going nowhere fast at this point. Time to make a decision!

    EXACTLY. There are now many companies crowing about their solar flexible thin film it makes one wonder if they are not in fact using Nanoflex Power technology sitting in a patent or two they don't even remember about. Or let's put it this way. How many solar thin films are being made by a different material and production process? Multiple? I don't think so. Are all those other nations making a different solar film? What the hell is happening.

    Nanoflex Mention

    The real question now is what happens if the Germans got there first! They are going about it the right way by setting up a production process to make the stuff and not waiting around for someone to knock on their door and Leaping ahead of OPVS. No mention of any working relationship with NanoFlex Power. Let's see if OPVS will now wake up long enough to let us know about their being run over.

    Short Interest Increased

    Any company in this universe with over seven hundred patents and applications for patent with not a single patent license agreement with an operating enterprise that will make, use or sell a product under any one of said patents is wasting millions inventing the wrong stuff. PERIOD. Or, totally inept at presenting what they have invented to anyone anywhere in the world. Or, they would have spoken long ago about their earth shaking invention(s). This is an astounding example of how not to design and develop a product.

    How About Developing Our Brand a Little?

    I like your thinking. Now if there was just some way to get into the heads of management who are wasting such valuable time. They seem to have no marketing skills whatsoever. Cut the technical raz-ma-taz and go out and explain just what the product can do for your industry, new business, construction business, cost saving and on and on why you have to do it now. It is frustrating to sit and wonder if there is anything to get excited about or forget it and move on.
    "Solarjetic". A revolutionary technology to transform the use of obsolete power sources to cheap Solar Power over all the world. Broadcast it on Google - Yahoo - Facebook etc., etc., etc. into a world class webpage. Oh come on. Wake the hell up. Get going. I'll even license NanoFlex Power to use my select brand name for the
    products.
