    Energy storage and anscillary grid services have been kNOWN pbc strengths for at least couple of years. Why it took so long to devote significant resources to it is a failure from past management. Instead of chasing elephants who are known to have very stringent testing protocols, the easy picking was there all along and nor TG nor VD went aggressively after if. Hope DDG does.

    Why would these guys from the wealth management division of a brokerage firm reach out to Retail Axionistas, I wonder...

    kevin,

    How do we know the manager is a "well respected one"? I have never heard of them this side of the Atlantic...

    Time to fire the PR firm handling Axion then and invest a bit more in the public image. We are not and RD company anymore and if we want to change the perception of the market of us, time to make ourselves a desirable prospect. Whining against the market is an unproductive task, adjusting to it is a positive step forward...

    Mr Averill,

    I have long been a strong voice of criticism against Tom's handling of certain aspects of his tenure. I understand that not being in his shoes I probably (
    Most likely?) have no idea of how tough it is to run a small outfit during impossible times and shave the persistence he showed, however, the main point I wanted to emphasize was that running a public company requires a "public relations" skill in which I thought he was severely lacking and that could have been remediated by hiring adequately trained staff. As to marketing the PbC, many of us on this board a while ago raised concerns that Axion was understaffed in that segment an in the face of consistent failure to generate interest in the powercube beyond one single customer, we were becoming more vocal.

    Having said that, there are admirable traits about TG's character (marketing and raising money not so much) and I would like to extend my sincere apologies for the bashing.

    Does being pollyannish and not delivering constitute a breach of your fiduciary duty towards your shareholders' capital ? JP this question is for you...

    Otherwise I agree with many here that going forward we will be served the cold hard truth hopefully every time, instead of the embellished reality one wants to see. Shame it didn't happen much sooner...

    Stefan,

    Could also be that DDG's style is "no-nonsense" and he sought to weed out anything vague from the quarterly report about the accomplishments of the company, which tells me that, yes, we were being sold a bag of sand by prior manager TG all along, while paying him nicely for it!

    RK,

    I think given Axion's horrendous track record of late, it is prudent to exert extra caution. What you might read between the lines is generally what is happening with this company.

    No wrist slitting mrholty, it's not worth it ;)
    I really hope they have something to say on this chapter, otherwise it will really feel like we are have been taken to the cleaners.

    Surely a whole section on railroad and automotive work can't just disappear from a Q report. TG may be naive in some respects, but he is not that reckless with the law, or at least I hope not for his own sake.

    So what are we really left with?? Seems nothing is coming anytime soon and we will be diluted into oblivion. I gotta thank Thomas Granville for the fantastic job he has done with this company. Nice job Tom!

    Why has the NS999 suddenly disappeared from the report? I don't understand. Has anyone noticed this too?

    MAya,

    add to that the fact that Norfolk Southern has been scrapped out of the report, and I am not that enthusiastic about the NS999 coming out ANYTIME soon...

    We have been left with a bag of sand I am afraid, or at least it feels like it, but something is definitely not smelling good!
