    "BACKLOG and BACKORDER are not the same. If you truly don't understand the difference, please look it up. If you do, then you are simply bashing and making unfounded statements.

    BACKORDER = We can't deliver the product because it is either not available now or we can't build it by the date you want it.

    BACKLOG = Thank you for your (future) order. You have requested that the MT(s) be delivered to your jobsite on X date and we will be able to fulfill your order at that time. In the meantime, we get to report a "contracted" future sale, and plan for our production/assembly schedule.

    As pointed out, backlog is about CUSTOMER construction schedules, not about supplier schedules. If a customer orders a MT to be delivered in Feb 2012, it would be bad business for Capstone (or anyone) to build it now and leave it sitting on the dock until then."___br_yank

    "In the meantime, Pickens said the answer for tapping the market of U.S. consumers interested in the natural gas car market is to fuel up at home."

    “For your car and my car, the way you’re going to fuel it is in your garage. You can just hook off your natural gas,” he said. “Natural gas, from your garage, is less than a dollar a gallon. It's what it costs. It is cheap.”

    "Steady revenue growth from 2008-2014 ($31 mln to $133 mln). Backlog in same period has gone from $28 mln to $171 mln. Operating expenses have remained stable despite significant revenue growth. Margin improvement from -24% to +16% and projected higher. Many of the early investors got excited about Capstone products but have been disappointed because they didn't understand what it takes to build out a manufacturing company.High fixed costs and low revenues were killing them - that is resolving itself with the growth in revenue. Think about it this way - If you have fixed costs of $25 mln/yr but only sell 100 units thats $250,000 per/unit but if you have the same fixed costs and you sell 600 units then it drops to $41,000 pre/unit. There has never been a better time to own CPST. They are on the cusp of turning a profit and gaining market share. The opportunities for their products are enormous."___Brokerjmac

    We're about to have our first $50 million quarterly revenue report. I would think that would easily be the catalyst to boost us back to 1.70 and beyond.

    First quarter of the fiscal year has been historically weak with the second and third quarters showing strength. Add to that the $13 million revenue from delayed deliveries of product because of customer licensing problems and we could meet the $50 million revenue quarter.

    The key statement was..."FedEx has just ordered 25 of the new powertrains to begin to retrofit its fleet. Because the technology goes inside old trucks, FedEx can more than double fuel efficiency, and more than halve CO2 emissions, without getting rid of its current stock of vehicles. TO BEGIN TO RETROFIT? Does that mean there will be additional orders after the 25 are installed in the first month of next year? Also read about...
    Of the 2.2 million medium-duty trucks in the US [Class 3 to 6, 11,000 to 26,000 pounds], about 10 percent of those get a new powertrain every year. That’s 250,000 new engines and transmissions per year. That varies a lot – in the parts of the country where they salt the roads heavily in the winter, they don’t get twenty years out of the chassis, so you might actually not replace the engine in one of those trucks. In California, that chassis might be good for thirty years and they go through three engines, or even more. The interesting thing is that we can sell directly to the fleet operator, the guys who own the trucks. We don’t have to go through the cycle of doing a deal with the truck manufacturer, getting the powertrain approved and all of that.

    Of course, we can also go into new vehicles. The truck industry is very different from cars. The package-delivery guys, the way they buy those trucks is they go to, say, Freightliner, and they say, I want the MT45 chassis, and I want the Cummins engine, and I want an Allison transmission, and a Meritor axle, and I want you to ship all of that down to Michigan, to Spartan Motors, the UtiliMaster Group, and have them build a custom body on it. The fleet owner can just as easily say to Freightliner, well, I want the MT45 chassis, I want the UtiliMaster body, but I want the Wrightspeed powertrain. We’re about the only range-extended powertrain, with the only retrofit kit.
