  • Munich, June 19, 2017 – Fujitsu today announces that it is broadening its advanced biometric security solutions portfolio through an agreement with ImageWare Systems to resell key security capabilities including enterprise mobile biometric user authentication as a service. The agreement will see Fujitsu not only extend its biometric identity and access management solutions to mobile devices but also to additional authentication methods including fingerprint, face, and voice recognition. Fujitsu customers will now be able to deploy biometric authentication as a service running on the Fujitsu Cloud Service K5.
  • Over $5. Time for celebration.
  • Did anyone see the opening trades? 1 share 1 share 1 share 4 shares 46 shares. 100% sure it is institutional. Retail trades don't get executed like this. Also obvious is the direction this entity wants to take the stock. What is the significance in keeping it under $5? Saw news on Nok Nok Labs and Fujitsu. Aware has no future on it's own
  • BTW AWRE was $5 over 20 years ago when DOW was 12,000 points LOWER.
  • The former CEO sold his options at 4.30 what does he know going forward that you don't know?
  • We are long overdue for a change at Aware. Stafford has long relied on a sit an wait approach to running this business. He is obviously afraid to take on growth as part of his strategy.

    My assessment of Stafford, other than being interested in his own personal advantage over the interests of shareholders is that he is not willing to risk a growth strategy on Aware. This is because he believes there is a lower risk option available, at least to him.

    Potential Low Risk Profit opportunities available to Stafford:

    1) Maintaining low transparency of Aware's business, allows him to have a trading advantage in the stock. Decades of long term flow has provided an acceptable RoR for privileged shareholders.

    2) Reliance on strategic patent position to capitalize on an emerging market. I think Aware has been lying in the bushes, waiting for one of the emerging markets that they have covered with their IP to take off. My belief is that they want the market to proceed without concern about the IP. Once the IP has been sufficiently embedded, they will pounce with the licensing/infringement. The low profile is intended to lull users of the technology in. Nothing else explains this company's interest to maintain an invisible presence in the market place.

    As CEO Kevin Russell is a blank page without any leadership skill at all. Russell and Moberg together did nothing but manage a cash fund. 500K$ in salary were issued to sit in the henhouse and keep the eggs warm. Its crazy how this company has been managed. The only reportable activity for Moberg and Russell was their recurring lapses in their responsibilities to shareholders. Violations of the Corp Code of Ethics, refusal to enforce that code, long periods of undisclosed material non-public information. I know of no other highlights that can be attributed to those two executives.

    Since this strategy has now played out over nearly a decade, I think Stafford has taken an unreasonable risk of obsolescence.
  • "Applications include ***mass*** enrollments of personnel at forward operating bases ***or for watch-list matching.***"

    OK, all you bad guys look at the camera and say 'Cheese'. The DOD wants to be able to search all faces in group photos against the watch list at the same time. They need this. One at a time enrollment and search must be too damn slow.

  • Well, glad I got into GSOL . At least it is going up.
  • Q2/17 is going to be a tough YOY comp ...From the Q2/16 10Q

    "Revenue and operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2016 were $6.9 million and $2.1 million, respectively. These results compared to revenue of $4.5 million and operating income of $0.5 million in the three months ended June 30, 2015."

    This stock could get ugly if it doesn't even beat what it did in the 2 years ago quarter.

    No bump from the Nimibia Trade show? Go figure?...lol
  • 10Q shows two worrisome additional data items.
    1) virtually no known sales pipeline: ~0.1 Million $
    2) Decline software maintenance, due to lack of retention

    Both of these are very concerning.
  • Firing Moberg lifts profits by about 400$K per year which is 25%.
    I say, lay Russell to waste and increase profits 50%.

    What does that say about value of Aware leadership?
  • Interesting product release today. However, lack of credible company leadership overwhelms and sends clear signal that Aware has no intention to grow it operating business.

    Still leads me to believe Aware only exists today to prosecute patents, and perhaps sell the operation when the time is right.
  • AWRE was almost 300% higher 20 years ago. My biggest tech dud.
  • DG Capital back over 5%. Went from 1,036,848 to 1,120,425. Not much but better than a further reduction.
  • Tascent has Dean Senner Mr. Senner brings a broad breadth of domestic and international experience in technology, consumer electronics and telecommunications products for both government and commercial markets. Dean was President and CEO of Thales Navigation, Inc. (Magellan GPS Systems), an international company with operations in 13 countries, and over 17,000 retail outlets in more than 100 countries around the world. Dean oversaw the explosive growth of Thales Navigation during his tenure which included the Professional Products division, OEM division, and Consumer Electronics division.

    Dean has also served as an executive in the defense and aerospace industry with Lockheed Martin. During his tenure, he was Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Lockheed Martin Commercial Space Systems company, developing and operating satellite systems for Direct Broadcast (TV), Fixed and Mobile Satellite (Telephony), and Broadband services worldwide. Dean also served as Vice President of Military Satellite Communications Programs for Lockheed Martin developing satellite systems such as MILSTAR, DSCS, GPS IIR, and others.

    And Aware has Kevin Russell. "Prior to joining Aware, Mr. Russell served as legal counsel at IRIS Graphics, Inc. from November 1994 to April 2000." which is funny because Mass Sec of state shows IRIS Graphics dissolved in 1998.

  • So far no follow through of further management changes at Aware tells me they got rid of Moberg for cause. If they appoint a legit CEO I might think otherwise.
