  • A Summary Of The Axion Power (AXPW) 2015 Annual Meeting [View instapost]
    Thanks for the report, Al. I had planned to go to the next meeting but when the date was announced I could not get away from work commitments.

    Your conversation with Jay mirrors mine. I have no doubt he is going to be successful. I knew that the minute I met him at the shop.

    As for Dr. Gesang, I believe he is serious about making Axion successful. If he wants to sell the company after that, I guess that means we'll get a better price.

    One of the reasons I have not posted here in many months is proven once again. No matter what, someone will always find fault or criticize in some fashion. I don't know what I was thinking when I decided to post today.

    Well, what an interesting couple of days. A couple things strike me. Dr. Gesang is certainly a very bright man. I don't see him as the kind of guy who makes a deal that he is not sure will succeed. Also, as a couple here have pointed out, he is also not going to get into something unless he will profit. Nor should he. But I'm with BA in that this should put pressure on others to line up to make a deal. And, since the terms of the deal require shareholder approval, I can't imagine the deal will be negative for existing holders. Wouldn't pass if it was. Overall I'm excited about this. Glad I loaded up a few months back at .03. Wish I had sold this AM, but I'm in for the long haul anyway. We may finally be on our way.

    Let's get back to talking about Axiom. After all, don't you know that PLUG is going to buy them! It's going to be announced any time now!

    HAHA. It is fun reading the Twitter and Yahoo pumps. Not too much being said today, probably accounts for the low volume. That and millions of shares can't be converted.

    Wow. Have no clue who's doing the buying, but it is fun to watch. Saw some 300K+ buys go by. Not a lot of money but seems odd that volume turned so much the last two days. I guess if you're a good trader you could be making some money with it.

    I have not visited here in three weeks, but decided to last night to see if anybody was talking about the huge increase in A warrant activity as well as the increased common price over the last 2 days. It does appear something is up. I've been reading through the Fundamental Transaction section, and it does appear that warrant holders will be entitled to stock in a purchasing company in the case Axion were to give up a controlling portion to another company. The details escape me at this point, but someone must know something, and they must know that they can make money by buying A warrants at 18 cents. I'm glad I hung on to those I bought in the open market. This might be fun.

    I have tried avoiding reading the APC, and as I write this I have not read any comments for a few days. It seems to be soul-baring time on the APC and at the risk of being ridiculed for being optimistic, I'm going to explain why I am holding and may actually consider being a buyer in the near future.

    I will readily admit this has been an effing disaster. I'll not place the blame on anyone other than me. I have no clue if TG and the others are incompetent or not. Makes no difference now. Time to get over it. What's done is done.

    However, I'm positive NSC did not name Axion an "industry partner" without doing a fair amount of work with, and investigation of, the company. I have no clue why there has been no news from them, but that doesn't change the fact that somebody there was impressed enough with the technology to move ahead with the second version of the train. Some positive news from that front would do wonders. I'm not counting on that happening in the near future, though.

    BMW? No idea what happened there. Don't care at this point. Maybe it's dead, maybe not. I would like to know of course, but doubt I ever will.

    There are two things that will happen in the near future; ePower and PEV. Either one will improve the perception of Axion in the market.

    As an ePower investor I have a unique perspective related to them. I have met both Jay and John. I have visited the shop and have ridden in the big truck. I know that there will be either good news or bad from them very soon. Within a few months someone will be testing and we'll know if the testing went well or not. For obvious reasons I hope it does and I firmly believe it will. You may not agree, but if by summer a couple trucking firms sign up for rebuilds, there will be a lot of renewed interest in Axion. I'm not going to bet against Jay. Like I said I've met the man and seen the trucks.

    Within a few months PEV will either make a sale or not. Simple as that. There's a whole lot of solar and storage activity going on and maybe they can grab a piece. I know they are hitting the bricks to make it happen. As with ePower, we'll know by mid-summer.

    Yes, we need a CEO. Someone with vision and guts to make this happen. I thought DDG was the man. We'll never know. Now, I'm not being sarcastic when I say this, but I'll ask Rick why he doesn't contact them and offer to take over. Rick, you're obviously very bright, and you have plenty of ideas for what needs to be done, whether it be firing the BOD or selling batteries to anybody who comes calling. I don't know what you are doing now for employment but here's an opportunity to shine.

    Yes, I know we are going to need a reverse split to stay listed. Probably 1 for 20 at least. This time I will not vote for leaving the authorized at 100M, and I will run if the name Maxim is mentioned in relation to financing.

    B warrants? Yep, they suck. It does appear we'll either hit the 100M limit or come close to it. Somewhere around 60M shares have traded since 02/23. I have no clue how many of the B's have been converted but I'm guessing over 50%. Seems to me the big players would have converted and sold quickly. I've seen a lot of offers of 100K shares or more over the last few weeks, and I figure those are shares being dumped upon conversion. I guess we'll know soon after the end of March.

    The odds for all of this happening? Probably slim at best, but IMO we will know in relatively short order what's going to happen either way. We don't have to be profitable this year. Look at PLUG. They aren't profitable yet, but all it took was one big player to step up and they have a $500M market cap. An order or two and we should at least be a $100M company again. We'll know soon enough.

    A couple thoughts on buying;

    I believe that PEV is beating the bushes. Perhaps that has introduced the company to some fresh meat.

    ePower has been working for some time on a financing deal. Those financing guys might be talking to their friends.

    As Ranma has stated, could be a profitable trade when the B shares dry up. Supply of shares drying up hasn't worked for us the last two times, so maybe the third time really is the charm.

    Despite all the negativity here, there still is a bright future for the company, IMO. I will qualify that with the caveat that something needs to happen rather quickly to get us out of this negative-sentiment driven predicament.

    Well, my prediction of a dime was just about spot-on. Missed by .0001. As of today, that is.

    I had stated that I would be a buyer at a dime but I think I'm going to renege on that. Every time I think we've hit a floor, we blast right through it.

    Still puzzles me why someone buys after the close. Another 99K order in now that has started to be filled. Not talking about a lot of money there but they can probably buy the same shares on Monday for a grand or more less.

    Sigh.

    LOL, Edmund. I have a '39 Chevy, and I graduated in 75, so I think we're more like 57%.

    Seriously, since BA said he was able to get the real number, perhaps he will weigh in and tell us.

    I do think we are probably about 75% converted now. No chance of running out of authorized shares before conversion is complete. Ain't going to happen. I have no idea where Rick gets his .001 cents per share notion.

    However, if we were to try another capital raise, all bets are off on getting to 100M.

    I can't tell if Gamble"A-hole"ick is from another country and therefore ESOL, or just mentally deficient, but I do appreciate APC's efforts in removing his posts. I do not mind negative posts at all if they provide some degree of insight or factual information, but we sure seem to collect our share of those who have lots to say but nothing to back it up.

    You're correct. It probably doesn't matter too much. When the B's started, I had my own thoughts on what the final share count would be and I am trying to gauge how close I might be.

    Anybody know what the conversion ratio is now? Must be getting close to 20?

    What I do is go to Summary Quote on the left side, the click on Trade History icon at the top center. Just provides a little different way of looking at the data.

    Yeah, Rick. I suppose it could be a whale trader who bought the 100K shares after the close yesterday, but that seems a bit risky to me for a stock that has a descending channel chart for the last what, forever? I guess if you have a program written that does all that for you and you can make a few hundreds of a cent on each of those shares, but still seems risky. But then again I am not a trader so I don't know all the ins and outs of that sort of trading.
