  • Axion Power Concentrator 360 August 22 '14: 10-Q For Q1 2014; S-1 For $15MM Share Issuance; Changed Loan, IP-Secured MDA; David DiGiacinto Appointed Chairman And CEO [View instapost]
    >robert barry ... Axion has, in its way, already said it died. It got put on the "back burner" and other indicators until it is just not mentioned anymore. Now, if you think Axion is going to tell any details of why ... you've got a long wait ahead.

    >robert barry ... BMW reportedly made an introduction between Axion & a battery OEM. Then the whole process just died out. There is no way of knowing if something is or isn't going on but I'd bet it just isn't. The good thing I get from this is that BMW finished their R&D with good enough results to make that introduction. The numbers of unit production probably were not projecting high enough to entice a battery OEM to move & Axion is not a company that BMW can do business directly with because of financial & supply chain issues.

    >Rick Krementz ... I'll not argue but I can't think of any other potential indicator of Axion's PbC durability that could present itself where I might be able to make some sort of guess. I'm going on the premise that no company is willing to extend a warranty period for a particular application without be more than slightly sure it will not cost them. It's all varying shades of black.

    >iindelco ... We will get some sort of hint about durability if/when Axion gives ePower a warranty period number.

    >JP ... The biggest lesson I've learned from "investing" in Axion is this. Don't ever put money in a company that doesn't have sales or is considered by Mr. Market, whether real or imagined, to have clear visibility to sales.

    >Ranma ... I agree that 99.9% of BioTech investors don't understand the science. When I say easy to understand I don't mean the science, just the market. Allergic reaction needs and epipen. Problem ... solution ... easy to understand. A little faith that this company or that can do the better job and you've got investors willing to bid it up.

    With Axion, most likely the average investor doesn't understand the problem. Ever tried to explain frequency regulation or AltEnergy indeterminacy. Investor type people don't understand DCA or PSOC or Capacitance or Cycle Life as being a solution to anything and particularly to a problem they might never have heard of and don't quite understand if they have.

    That is the tough row to hoe I'm talking about. The generalize & simplified overview. The dream of fast money just isn't in Axion's realm for the majority. Just too difficult.

    >Ranma ... I have to admit to knowing nothing about Adams Pharma (OTCQB:ADMP). The biggest difference I see between AXPW & ADMP is visibility. Adams has several products in R&D, review & trials that are easy to understand and clearly have ready markets. Axion has a difficult to understand supercapacitance energy device that virtually no one has any knowledge of built to service a market virtually no one knows even exists ... if, in fact, it does. Certainly it is not a ready market to sell into. A tough row to hoe.

    >KillaCycle ... This is one inane premise your trying so hard to push. Entertaining but irrelevant.

    >Bob Averill ... That has been the Big Question for the past several years. My guess is that the whale hunt will be a boom or bust by 2017 and I look forward to at least 2 more of these financing rounds. Corporate survival is a question I have.

    The wild card is the PowerCube. It is the market that is least known and could do anything from nothing at all to limping the company along until one of the known whales is captured to making Axion a one hit wonder $1B USD enterprise. I have a hard time envisioning a time line to be optimistic about anymore.

    >JP ... I regret dredging this up and getting this thread started ... again. The idea our little company has can wait until a supercapacitor comes to market at a reasonable price or the idea dawns upon a more acceptable company. Maxwell is cost probative and there is no guarantee the idea would work as envisioned.

    I'll just let sleeping dogs .... My only other gripe is that playing with the Big Boys is "All or Nothing". While it is true that worldwide more small children (companies) die from dysentery (debt) than die from starvation (lack of capital) & neglect (no revenues), they do in fact happen.

    >JP ... I'm more in Rick Krementz camp. I don't like that Axion has actively discouraged the tinkering class ... a sustaining Eco System I believe is the way he put it. Several small niches that might only buy 500 or 1,000 batteries a year. I don't feel very comfortable with the "All or Nothing" change in Axion's business plan.

    >JP ... I can only hope. Plug did it with a little ink on paper and sector enthusiasm.

    >NJB & Retired Aviator ... Sales, Sales, Sales. That is all it would take to have share price approach $1.00 USD pre-RS. I agree but there is absolutely no visible path (or even rumored) to those sales ... or any sales. All I see is decreasing share prices, management turmoil, falling revenue & a desperate need for cash. Not sales or prospects of growth. Growth or the promise of growth is all the market cares about.

    >JP ... And those elephants have benefited Axion in many ways. Improved the device. Improved instrumentation. Improved manufacturing. Many benefits ... just not where it really counts for Oh so many reasons.

    The device is "as tough as nails" you say while the company is limp as a dish-rag. Elephants can be very dangerous animals.

    >Mayascribe ... Here's hoping that ePower gets a tractor on the road soon. It is the only hope for visibility to investors that Axion can point to ... just not yet.

    Declining sales is a problem. Pray for PowerCubes ... marketing, such as it might be, hasn't worked.
