    It takes admirable courage and integrity for a CEO to do that, unfortunately I don't think Granville had much integrity in dealing with Axion so I would not expect that from him...

    I take the silence on this blog as a final acknowledgment that most people are by now disillusioned and lost every once of hope that the company will ever survive once the money runs out.

    It's sad. Really sad, but it's life. You live, you get burned, you learn, you try again and your prosper...if you are lucky :)

    Very strange action in Axion stock market, really....

    From sub 1$ to 1.26 at close! I suspect if there ever is a modicum of substantial news that the company will survive and even prosper, this stock would run like a wild cat: 5 dollars in a matter of days...

    The Board of Directors was not doing it's job properly. The failure at axion was one of corporate governance. IMO

    I completely agree with Rick. Don't blame the Pipers for a deal that prior management agreed to. The blame lands squarely in TG's lap and his "yes" men. On top of that he had the audacity to take "performance" bonuses? If anything needs to be done, and if we legacy shareholders want our "justice", then I would suggest a class action against former management for material misrepresentation to get that money back, although I doubt it would be possible now.

    Patrick,

    What about the PowerCube working on-site for PJM? I cant recall Axion needing anyone's help for it. Why can't we just supply ERCOT with some PowerCubes if we meet their demand-response requirements (in terms of speed of response and quality). We can't argue we don't have track record, but whether the asset would prove economical in TX remains to be seen.

    I don't know if this has been discussed here before, but TX is looking to tap into demand-response assets to stabilise the grid:

    An area right down Axion's alley, and we have a track record of 3 years with PJM! The question is will ERCOT consider Axion as part of a solution to their problems, or are we too small a fish to matter for them, in which case I would clearly say that our condition is hopeless as no one is willing to sponsor us and give us a chance ( I am not counting e-Power because their weight so far is insignificant)

    Blauschuh,

    I echo your judgment and I must say I am still sitting on a pile of stock in the 15 dollars area. I chose to stay over the years mainly because I was LED to believe by some fantasist amateur who knows NEXT to nothing about managing public companies that things were "about to turn the corner" and lets face it, the opportunity for him to get handsome payouts (for the level of his competences) while spouting lies and rosy scenarios was too good to be true, so what did he do? Instead of levelling up with his shareholder base and not bidding expectations high, he blew even more bubbles and threw us under the bus.

    I wonder how those "meetings" with financiers must have gone. There they see a desperate old man trying to "sell them" on the concept of the PbC, and their response was predictable: Let us walk with a lion's share of the company for crumbs. All he could do was swallow his ego and say OK.

    The time to replace Granville was in 2012, even before. Contrary to many others, I think Axion would have been just fine, if not infinitely better, had it just gotten rid of him back in the days. All that the BoD should have done was to look at the pattern of "exiting investors" and understand that the business owners were not happy with Granville at the helm. Now thats the past, and we have to accept it. He had to step down due to his own health reasons, but his legacy was a true, opaque mess that will be difficult, if not impossible to climb from. Time will tell.

    I expect some transparency from DDG, but I am aware that he can't produce miracles

  • Report: BMW to pass on Tesla Motors investment [View news story]
    solucky,

    Germany made a few hundred million cashing in a paper profit on a punt, and they will be thanking the retail suckers in the process.

    It's the kind of dynamics that happens every day...
