    I hope you are right Patrick. My initial reaction was that we had been mightily screwed (again) by someone running the price down in order to pick up a huge quantity of cheap shares. But just imagine if this is a strategic investor coming on board. So long as shares are sold at or near market price the deal would be an excellent one for current investors who are holding at just over a buck. I think that would move the share price higher and B warrants might become less or unimportant.

    Why waste money on a piece of paper if you are not going to use it?

    I have not even been following AXPW. Pretty much written off my investment. Only noticed because the filing appeared in my email. Seems from the lack of interest in the board that many others have done likewise.

    Oil supply soaring will reduce focus on alternative energy stocks like AXPW. And it seems supply will continue soaring. Dont expect a rebound for years. Government policy will be the main drive force for green technology and even then in the short term I would expect the Eurozone to slow its green push as their economy falters again.

    The reason is shale and the fracking revolution. US oil production has more than doubled in the last 5 years back to 1980s levels. That is an extra 5 billion barrels being produced every year and rising. The US will soon become a net producer of oil (time to leave the middle east ;) Opec has decided that reducing their output will just give business to the States and elsewhere so are maintaining their levels. And we can expect much more fracking in the future. We haven't even started in the UK. End result. cheap oil. Bad for the planet. Bad for Axion. All the potential end users will be redoing their sums. I am not being facetious JP but how would $1 gallon gas effect the benefits to hauliers of conversion?

    I still pay over US$6 a gallon in the UK by the way.

    Stable share price for 48 hours. Highly suspicious!

    "Jeez, I'm all for pertinent discussion but this is a lot of post-mortem analysis for a company that's still alive." Exactly. It is the sort of chat I was expecting when Axion finally file for protection. Not what I was expecting at all after funding and new vision outlined by CEO. I guess so many of the long timers have capitulated now maybe it feels like BK.

    I posted, when the price started falling, that it was possible that the price would fall to a dollar. Reverse splits usually have a negative effect on stock and there doesn't seem to be any logical resistance. I guess $1 will give some resistance if we get that far. I thought we had put a bottom in a few days before the CC but apparently not. We are now testing the low that was established on the 5th/6th. Probably not much resistance there. I am sure HTL would have more to say about 1.36 being a significant support level.

    I guess either the B warrants are toxic and the price is going to be continually manipulated down or else the share price finds a base. If $1 fails dramatically then I guess it is time to face facts.

    Across for attention. Down for results.

    "CEO just told us on no uncertain terms that there is presently no catalyst to make 2015 any different than 2013 or 2014."

    I didn't hear that. I heard a comment from a CEO who was damning the old guard and changing direction. I also heard that there are existing relationships out there that could be lead to a strategic partner. And that is the focus of the next two quarters. I would hope a memorandum of understanding might get the stock moving.

    TG did a reasonable job. Yes, he got over excited but shouted his mouth off but I wish him well. He took AXPW in the direction he thought best and it didn't work out. But he didn't kill the company. DDG has focus. Lets see what happens.

    I dont see the reason for the sudden exodus. The CC and the 10Q just explained what everyone on this board has been saying for weeks. What were you expecting?

    As a new CEO the first CC is always going to be negative. It is like a prime minister making his first speech. "Loads to do, terrible situation I have inherited, going to take a super hero to sort this out".

    And hey presto, he looks like a super hero when the stock rises.

    I was encouraged by his new focus on the component aspect of PbC and maybe the "3 to 6 months" needed to focus on finding a partner will be enough. I hope the potential for partners will be a major focus of this board going forward. It seems to have not been discussed nearly as much as it should be and I for one have no idea how, where, who, or what it all means.

    If that happens how will you feel PY? Sick is my guess. Hope you stick around. If not then please remember....get your uranium rods, we going fission.

    "Our primary goal is to be the producer of activated total carbon electrodes, working with partner companies to produce and market the key element that contains the technology which has been developed over many years."

    I am slightly confused a) which companies they might have in mind and b) how close they are to this partnership and c) who is the partner going to sell the electrodes to?

    From the press release...

    executive summary...no change

    "CEO David DiGiacinto commented, "We will be keeping a tight rein on total expense control, on furthering essential R&D activities, and focusing on the market opportunities in energy storage for renewable energy, frequency regulation, and transportation concentrating on locomotives and heavy-duty commercial trucks. We have a high priority on selling PbC technology and products in these markets, and believe that our PbC products are especially well suited for these market opportunities. Our primary goal is to be the producer of activated total carbon electrodes, working with partner companies to produce and market the key element that contains the technology which has been developed over many years. We have a unique technology that we believe is better suited to certain market opportunities than any competitive technology. Our job is to commercialize the product, and make sure we have the right resources to accomplish the goal.

    "We are focusing on PbC revenue and margins, customer engineering, strategic partnerships, and improving the execution of our business. We are very pleased to have been designated to provide energy storage and frequency regulation for the Coatesville Solar Initiative which, when completed, is projected to be a 9.1 megawatt solar farm, and the largest solar farm in Pennsylvania. We are also working with a commercial solar photovoltaic company in New Jersey, which is in the process of completing its first installation using PbC technology in a system for energy storage and frequency regulation. Because of the work that Axion has done for the last several years with the PJM grid, the Coatesville and other installations will be able to connect directly to the PJM grid, and potentially to provide high-value frequency regulation with a response time in nanoseconds, as we do on a daily basis in New Castle. We have also made a much smaller 12kw installation near our factory, a size that would be right for residential or small commercial applications, or possibly for island locations where electricity from the grid is very costly."

    JFTR, the questions for CC I am most interested in are

    1) Is there any update on the status of the powercubes becoming operational.
    2) Can management comment on the tweets about NS999 only working for four hours.
    3) Has AXPW finally put automotive to bed or is cash still being spent chasing the pipedream, and IF it is over, please let the investors know what went wrong.

    I am impressed with new CEO so far. Seems to have taken AXPW by the scruff of the neck, realised what can and can't be achieved and most importantly is slashing costs to stretch out the time available to get a decent order pipeline. My only remaining issue is how long it will take for the powercubes to have been installed long enough for a definitive customer approval of technology. I still don't think we are there yet with the powercubes. I year of sustained use of the four power cubes with high ROI plus no technical/maintenance issues might be enough to secure 40 more cube orders.

    Does anyone else have an opinion of when this "definitive customer approval of technology" might happen. Or has it already?

    I can't see any comment in 10Q regarding how long current cash will last. Was it mentioned elsewhere?

    Watch out for that stop Razor. There is so much movement on the share price that it could yoyo and we are back where we started but you find yourself out.
