    I have also learned something quite valuable with this debacle. previously, I always attributed competence to "age" and "experience", only to realise now that both these do NOT mean much in hindsight. There are plenty of skilled people out there who are in their mid-forties to early fifties who could have run this baby very well until commercial success. Why don't we drop the ego a bit and get them onboard for a change?

    Ah yes I forgot, we have a board that is very pro-status quo....

    I wouldn't mind if some financially savvy investors take the control of Axion for a change, and fire the entire management team and replace them with new people. How realistic is that ?

    I will be a big proponent of it if it happens, but it's unlikely to happen...

    Axion has run into difficulties preparing the annual 10K and is seeking outside assistance. Report to be filed with SEC mid April 2015.

    Gotta thank the management who buried it alive. You couldn't have done a better job, TG and Trego.
    Both deserve a place in hell !

    In a field such as Advanced Robotics, R&D spending has to be a rather large budget for companies with first mover advantage trying to cut a moat for themselves. EKSO needs the cash to keep pushing and come up with more prototypes. The company is under GOOG and Lockheed's radar screen, so in my opinion the moment it becomes an important one in the field, someone with just come out of the wood and pay a HUGE premium to acquire it.

    That is, unless it gets run to the ground by its management...

    Well, Rick, maybe now is the opportunity for you to go back into the field and make another success, a success that will make you forget the misery of the Axion experience!

    Anyone thinks that the next CC may be Axion's last as well? Frankly, I see no reason for them to keep going as things are right now.

    We gotta watch for employees starting to put their CVs out there as an indicator that things are really over in New Castle...

    Well, looking at the videos of some of their early experiments with people with complete motor disability, it truly looks amazing!

    What I would look at as a red flag though would be if the BOD/Executive management is solely composed of grumpy old men who seem out of touch with today's world.

    The 20 million loss is a one-time charge linked to the issuance of the warrants. The company has 25 million in cash, enough to last - by their own 10K- until Q2 2016.

    Anyways, just bringing a company with outstanding potential to your awareness since we seem to have shared into the pain together. You are free to do whatever you want to do with the tip :)

    RA,

    Except that when investing in Axion the company had not sold 400K worth of PbC to NS and was surviving on toll manufacturing for standard LAB, i.e NON CORE business activity. T

    his company's products are already there, they are not perfect - far from it- but there is market curiosity for them, and the potential for growth in top/bottom line is mind-boggling! Skimming through the last 10K, there already seems to be a take off in their business. It is still in its infancy, with a number of risk factors, but hey, one has to keep taking chances. Starting small and sizing the position is one of them :)

    Also one other detail of huge interest: Some brokerage houses are already taking notice and initiating coverage.

    There is real potential: military is one thing, but all the people in wheelchairs in need of it. Only big obstacle so far: still a high price item!

    At least it does not contain the poison word: LEAD. After the Axion experience, I realise anything that has lead in it is really, truly, definitely NOT wanted by anyone...

  • Ekso Bionics: Well-Positioned In A Thriving Industry [View article]
    I feel very lucky to having stumbled on this little gem. Saw the website and the range of products that are currently available, even though they are still expensive. If prices for medical use exoskeletons drop significantly, the future of EKSO is set!

    I will keep a sharp eye on it, and maybe even start a small position. Thank you for an enlightening article!

    All,

    Just found out the next 100-bagger, except that this one has REAL sales (albeit small), and REAL innovation:

    The next wave to - hopefully- get the money I lost on this POS stock and more :)

    I think if I had picked up on this in one of your reports back then Maya, I would have run to the hills!!!!

    Had no idea that Granville had been a Las Vegas fanatic...

    I think we the legacy shareholders could team up and do one last thing: pay for a proper, 360 degrees, background check on Thomas G Granville just to be sure what type of man we entrusted some of our capital with. Plus, it promises to be an educational experience!

    Anyone agrees?
