    Some ask why Richard is posting non related BLDP news. Actually they are hydrogen related news that i consider valuable. Be it political decisions, initiatives, or new business developments like the Cummins or Oshkosh contract by USPS are important for the hydrogen industry as a whole. And BLDP beeing a part of it we as investors should be informed as much as possible in order to make sound financial decisions. Thank you Richard

    I find it hard to believe that underwriters at TD Securities and National Bank would be so uninformed that they would buy $350M BLDP shares at $37/share. From what I understand of typical bought deals, underwriters purchase shares at a large discount in order to resell them for a profit at a later date.

    Ballard is performing the best among fuel cell companies during this decline. I think its because of the strategic partnerships they currently have as well as a broad product base.

    Relax and let it ride. The whole sector is down, just take a quick look at $BE, $FCEL, $BLDP message boards. We used to have these but swings all the time in the past. They used to play with $AMD like this all the time a few years ago. Wait for a few months. PLUG has a wonderful customer base with great plans and that worth GOLD

    Ballard Power with new "Bought Deal"
    12 February 2021 by Hydrogeit
    Ballard was able to draw attention once again and land a "bought deal". Banks have offered the company more than USD 600 million via share issue. The issue price: 37 U.S. dollars. The fact that there was a drop in the share price from more than 40 to less than 37 US dollars is due to the fact that the market can be assumed to sell the stock empty, since one gets the shares back more cheaply via the Bought Deal. This is a form of arbitrage, so the price decline should be considered temporary. For me, this has two positive aspects: firstly, a further USD 600 million in the bank, and thus a very healthy financial cushion of more than USD 1.4 billion, and secondly, the positive assessment of the market, the stock exchange and investors that even with the sharply increased share price in December to more than USD 40, such a capital measure can be very well placed. This shows great confidence in Ballard as well as, of course, in the industry. Acquisitions, despite the previous sharp increase, make sense.

    So far, Ballard management has been very calm, as it is planning to raise its own technologically leading electrolysis technology and its potential. This can be the creation of a new business unit, a licensing agreement, a joint venture or the acquisition of a suitable candidate/company. In my opinion, it makes the most sense to set up a joint venture with a large established player, which is well positioned worldwide and has great sales potential. After all, the ratings of companies in this BZ industry are now – felt – very high, if I only look at ITM Power as an example. In a joint venture, one could not only raise the know-how, but would then have to make more targeted use of capital on the part of Ballard. In any case, it is the right step for the company to expand this area of electrolysis as a useful addition to the product portfolio. In the specific case of implementation, this will further boost Ballard's share price, I believe.

    Today, Ballard has a valuation of more than USD 10 billion, as much as in 2001, when the stock rose from 5 to over USD 130. Today, however, the prospects are real and Ballard is a clear market leader.

    CNN and Anderson Cooper spent an hour with Bill Gates on climate change and neither said the word "hydrogen." Why??

    That great deal selling millions of shares at $37 when the stock was at $42 is really working out great for the common shareholders isn't it ??
