Can anybody see any good news in this scenario? Or is it 'Last one out turn off the lights'? I do hope not.

Not many of us left now, I guess.

Are you guys still living in hope?

Personally, I've lost too much thus far to bale out, so have little hope other than watching developments and silently praying (facing the appropriate direction, of course).

Hi,

On a point of information. I note that you refer to 'Sid' on Hotcopper, Lizard.

I post on HC (only rarely, and when I feel I have something to contribute) as Sunny Sid. One of my latest posts - about 4C and BQT at Farnborough Air Show, here in the UK - received some 850 hits (not showing off, just pointing out that 850 is a lot more than average for that BB).

The 'Sid' you refer to, Lizard, is not me, of course, but Sidneybynight (not sure if I've spelled that correctly).

Whilst I have no argument with Sidneybynight, who also refers to himself as 'Sid', I simply want to make it clear that we are two unconnected posters.

Thanks for your time.

BTW, for better or worse I still have a substantial holding in BQT. I hold with more hope than expectation, simply because I've been in for many years now. Personally, if I were a newbie, I don't think I'd risk any new money just yet. (DYOR, of course)

Sorry guys, I've no more idea than anyone else just what the hell is going on. But that big "sell" at 18c (just outside the five-most-likely-to-be-matched) sure does stand out don't it?

You'll all know by now that the first UK biometric passports have now been issued. You may not know that BBC TV News today announced that biometric registration has been started at London Heathrow. Iris recognition, as well as fingerprint, was specifically mentioned.

BTW do any of you guys use this site I've just discovered?

http://www.getagraph.com/

It seems like a great facility from my point of view, desparate for Aus news, here in the UK.

Watcha, Wolvie,

Well, I'm doing OK - for an old 'un - dunno about the rest cool.gif

Take your point about BQT, and must admit to feeling somewhat let down by all the hot air, but that is probably the nature of the beast. Probably, when they've nothing to say they should say nothing. But, of course, the punters want 'news' so the temptation is always there to spin it up a bit. Our Tony B and all his mates UK-side know a lot about that.

Guess, as always, we shall just have to wait and see. Time will tell.

Cheers mate.

Be lucky.

Hi,

I'm really surprised to see no BQT discussion on this board, particularly since the UK parliament passed the legislation enabling a biometric passport and ID card yesterday.

BQT appeared to be in the pack for this, surely that warrants some slight shuffling of feet and a polite cough, if nothing else? This used to be a really great, polite and intelligent forum. Where have all the punters gone?

I'd be interested to know how many of you were put off by an apparent 'interruption of service' on ShareScene over the past few weeks and months. I'm in the UK. I only watch BQT as it is the only OZ stock I hold, so I used to rely on the email notifications of new posts before logging-on. Some time before Christmas, I realised I had not received a notification for a very long time. I tried to access the site, but couldn't get in. Being busy, I simply didn't bother to keep trying... except perhaps every few weeks, always with the same negative result. A couple of weeks ago I became more determined, sent a couple of emails to SS and finally I'm back in.

I still don't seem to be getting email notifications of new posts. But then again, there don't seem to be any new posts.

There seems to be a healthy interest in BQT over on HC (OK, I'll wash my mouth out), why not here?

What happened? Did some of us (perhaps a lot of us?) get wiped out during an upgrade? Anybody know?

Bye for now.

Hi, BQTeenies,

I note with interest that the "...Directors are keen to see that the existing shareholders, many of whom have been long term investors, [are?] able to participate in the Company's future at an advantageous price."... but that to be an Eligible Member you have to be a resident of Australia or New Zealand.

Great! But what about the really long-term holders here in the UK? We have stuck with BQT through thick and thin, some like me from the very early Banque-Tec days on the UK OFEX exchange.

Seems to me like dumping on your hard-time mates just as the good times start to roll, but then again... I'm just another whinging Pom.

Thanks for that, J.Fo, very interesting.

The piece was dated 11/01/2005 and referrs to a one year programme of evaluation that commenced in November last year, for the US Department of Homeland Security.

Given that BQT have been active in the States, is it not possible that they are also part of the same evaluation process?

A contract to the value of $6m (US) was being discussed, that would be quite nice

A year from November 2004? That would be just in time for Christmas... VERY nice biggrin.gif

Oh, well...

Wotcha, wolvie,

Very droll and sardonic comment, but missing the point.

Those retailers employing the new technology and NOT having to 'handle' the current charge overhead (which is indeed eventually passed on to the consumer, as always) will gain one of two advantages:
1) They continue to charge at the rate the market currently expects - and pocket additional profit (for a while).
2) They pass on the savings and gain additional customers and turnover.

If they do '1' they will soon be sussed out, when competitors take the other strategy and lower their prices. So, eventually, everyone WILL employ the new system, or commit commercial suicide (IMO).

For the record (another fog droplet?), recently found this Australian patent application:

AU 772761 Transaction system
Applicant: Nexus Corporation SA Class: G07F 007/08; G07C 009/00
Accepted: 6-May-2004 Priority: 2-Aug-1999 PCT: WO 99/36889

Abstract: A network transaction system including terminals and database servers which are adapted to issue transaction cards as well as to accept cards for subsequent transaction use. The cards include impersonal information, i.e. not including any personal information about the user, and the terminals are adapted to capture personal information directly from the user for verification purposes. The impersonal information on the card and the personal information of the user are discrete.

Doesn't add a lot I know, but forms part of our knowledge base, I suppose.

LC, So Monoco and Nexus (Nexus Corporation SA) at Camberly appear to be firmly linked via Max Rhiando? And the case for involving Nexus software is now dropped...? Or is that simply yet to be proved? Or am I just getting confused? :-)

Did 'chipperbill' claim to have actually spoken with Max R, personally, really? If so can we take the denial of any connection with Nexus Software as being final (after all we are talking very serious security issues), and the number of parties involved in 'Monoco' (25?) as being kosher, or simply arbitrary?

Let's be clear, I'm not claiming to know more than any of you guys, just trying to see through the fog.

Keep the searches going and the information flowing. Thanks LC and thanks All.

Hi, Nifty49,

Many thanks for your link (repeated below):


http://geip.ge/en/center/patent.html?act=v...vekat=07&ena=en

I think you have made the big contact. If we read down the page - which is from the Georgian (as in ex Russian Federation) Transfer Centre of Innovations and Technologies - we find that the invention in question is a Transaction System and the Essence is:

"A network transaction system including terminals and database servers, which are adapted to issue transaction cards as well as to accept cards for subsequent transaction use. The cards include impersonal information, i.e. not including any personal information about the user, and the terminals are adapted to capture personal information directly from the user for verification purposes. The impersonal information on the card and the personal information of the user are discrete."

Which is I believe pretty well word-for-word what was stated in the BQT / Monoco Ltd., announcement.

Thanks again, nifty49.

Thanks for your kind words, ty.

Thanks too for your additional indications. Most of what you have posted in the past has proved sound as I recollect. I also happen to believe we will be hearing some very big names mentioned in the same breath as our little BQT before too long.

As to Psion, rest assured, the funds have already been allocated to another little tech stock, here in the UK. The business I have in mind, like BQT, I have been involved with for several years. Also like BQT, it has had its ups and downs, and detractors, but the underlying technology is sound, in this particular case, unique.

And before you ask, don't. I want to get the rest of my dibbs in first :-)

Hi, Guys,

It seems to me that 'Monoco Ltd'., is a 'flag of convenience entity' enabling various interested parties to pool resources within a legal framework. If I'm right and this is the case, you will not find any track record because Monoco Ltd., is simply a construct for a purpose, much the same as Psion's 'Symbian' subsidiary - recently sold by Psion for tens of millions (I know, because I am one of the Psion shareholdes who will be receiving a handsome cheque from Psion in a few weeks time).

The entity 'Symbian' was a covenient way of uniting various disparate - competing - mobile manufactureres under one flag for long enough to form a de-facto standard operating system. I see Monoco as being the Symbian in a much larger game.


For the benefit of someone who posted earlier, the address of Monoco Ltd., is given as:


Monoco Limited
Quatro House - Frimley Road - Camberley
Surrey - GU16 7ER - United Kingdom

(UK) FAX NUMBER: 01276 679595


Have a great weekend.

Cheers for now.

Hi, ty,

Great post! And well spotted regarding John S's contribution to BQT's IP stable. I must confess I hadn't spotted that.

As to the ATM idea, I was also thinking along similar lines.

Here in the UK, the banks etc., are in the throes of changing over to 'Chip & Pin' technology - a move to which I (and many others) very strongly object, for reasons* I shall go into later to avoid clouding the issue.

A year or more ago, when this change was proposed, I wrote to all the major newspapers, and a number of TV programmes in the UK - to little obvious effect - pointing out the shorcomings of the system (to the customer) and suggesting that the biometric route was clearly the better route to take. Being a BQT shareholder, I also took the opportunity to point out that there was an Australian company that had excellent credentials for just this kind of project. I wonder if someone somewhere was taking notice?

M wink.gif onshine

* IMO, the change from a 'signature' transaction to a 'chip & pin' transaction does improve security... for the banks and institutions, but most definitely not for the customer.

1) In the event of a fraudulent transaction, with a 'signature' card the cardholder has the ultimate recourse to make the bank/card provider produce his/her alleged signature. With a chip and pin card under similar circumstances, what proof has the cardholder go that they were not the one making the fraudulent transaction? All this is against the background that more and more sophisticated methods are being employed by fraudsters to gain PIN numbers and personal data.
2) A great many people, particularly those getting on in years (of whom I am one wink.gif), have serious difficulty in remembering PIN numbers. If you have more than one card, for security you should have more than one PIN number, so then you have the problem of remembering which PIN goes with which card.

For the record, my wife and I have flatly refuse to accept the chip and PIN system on the grounds that we have a 'disability' (age wink.gif ) that prevents us from remembering numbers. They (Barclays in this case) have finally agreed to 'make an exception' for us. We still have 'signature cards' (less secure for the bank). You betcha we're not alone! So where are they going to go from here?

Hi

Saddo that I am, I print out the end of day prices from ASX - mainly 'cos that's all I can get at a reasonable time of day over here in the UK.

End of day 06/06/05 shows a 50,000 unit $0.40 bid at the top of the column (really weird when you think that the top column on the offer side was $0.22!), but of course this was a 'frozen','fossil' price from the point when BQT went into 'pre-open'.

If I've got it right, BQT was again traded briefly on 07/06/05 before being suspended. During this time the $040 bid seems to have been filled, so it should presumably show as the 'high' for the day.

The printouts do look strange, but the answer, probably, is that the software - a bit like shareholders? - doesn't like being screwed around with. wink.gif

No doubt all will be well.

nifty49, the ASX Market Release statement clearly states that the shares have been placed in pre-open (effectively frozen?) "at the request of the Company".

Clearly, the timing indicates an announcement is expected on Monday.

In all the speculation recently, why has nobody mentioned the possibility - which I am not advocating, because I want to follow BQT through to fruition - of a takeover? This would also fit in with the pattern of directors' purchases etc., etc., recently.

Playing devil's advocate for a minute; what, on ASX, is the level of holding at which a potential takover situation must be declared? Can any of you guys help a UK dumbo on this one?

Sorry if I'm just 'one of the usual suspects, mate, but IMO the fact is that the punters are gradually realising that BQT is for real. Nobody knows eaxctly when the sp will go through the roof, but anyone who's been watching points over the past weeks must surely be feeling pretty confident that it will - maybe very soon?

I notice that BQT are (unless my quick scan has missed something) the only partner firm specifically mentioned in the piece. So, by inference, Hirsh must be pretty proud of their partnership with BQT, or else they'd keep quiet. IMO, it also implies that BQT's involvement may have played a significant part in their winning the award.

You guys can think just whatever you like of course, but for my money (the only significant factor from where I'm standing) this pattern feels GOOD.

Tex, with respect, I think you underestimate just how highly Australia is viewed in the World community regarding security matters, and smart-card technology in particular.

You are arguing around the question of how BQT have pitched - phrased - their PR announcements. I would be the first to agree that their PR is clumsy, sometimes to the point of being inept - indeed I have openly criticised this aspect of BQT - but what does that matter in the long haul, if they're doing the business?

Thank you for that excellent piece of 'sounding out', Tex.

However, I really can't fathom why you and some other posters are viewing the collaboration with A4vision in a negative light.

I see it as a major feather in the cap of BQT. Of course the advantage will be time-limited - all advances are. Someone somewhere will always get around any patents/safeguards. The name of the game is a head start on the competition.

IMO, the importance of the information lies in the fact that BQT are the company that have first-to-market rights. What more could a small company ask for?

Additionally - this market is by definition not one in which the clients will go for the cheapest option. Once the technology is proven (and surely this is precisely what has taken all the time) the highest profile clients will settle for nothing less than the best technology: the market leader.

I may be seeing the glass as half full, of course, but that really is unlike me - I'm a natural pessimist.

Hi, ty.

I had just been listening to John G's interview on Wall Street Reporter, but thanks for your link anyway, I'm sure a lot of guys out there are not getting the up to the minute info that we clearly are.

As to the 'awards', tex, they can keep all that razzamatazz and 'luvvy' stuff, so long as BQT are quietly getting the contracts. As always, only time will tell.

Cheers,

Trumps again, ty! Respect - you are indeed the Main Man - as we sometimes say over here in the UK (I put it down to excessive consumption of rap music).

Thanks a million for that link too. Your posts are the Gold Standard in BB information.

Keep it up! (and the postings wink.gif )

I shall do some research of my own, when time permits, in the direction you indicate.

Have a great weekend (turned wintry again over here - suddenly gone from sunstroke to snowstorms in a couple of days... any of you guys remember that?) Hey Ho!

Thanks for that link, ty, I apologise for doubting you - or if not doubting, treating you more lightly than you deserve.

To save me trawling through the whole site - the existence of which is a complete revelation to me - can you please give us a little more info on exactly which "certain unprofitable cash-burning Silicon Valley biometrics firm" you were referring to? It does seem as though it is all in the public domain, so what's to lose?

Thanks again,

Hi, ty,

You have some interesting titbits in your well expressed post. Could you please put some more meat on the CIA story? I am as keen as anybody to hear good news about BQT, and I value your input, but - with the utmost respect - just how can anybody really know what the CIA are buying into? Or are you a secret squirrel too? wink.gif

Thanks for that, charry3, makes a nice change from the recent swinging handbags biggrin.gif

Since starting to reply I see that PG has already asked my question - what was the source?

But I also believe that the piece does give a few titbits of new information - news to me, anyway.

I did not know that their 3D system worked better the more the subject moved, for example - makes sense: more sampling = more accuracy, and accuracy has to be the gold standard, long term.

Also, is this not the first 'official' (?) mention of a possible UK MoD contract? This has much more credibility now, given the very recent Palace of Westminster contract.

Cheers, Matey,

Moonshine

Yup! I planned to retire at Christmas too - still do.

Ok. This last Christmas would have been very nice, and I agree that the lack of financial information is frustrating, I also agree that the announcements are a bit 'puffed-up' and the presentation's lousy - but...

BQT are still building a solid reputation in one of the - perhaps THE - fastest-growing market areas - security - at the highest levels. You don't get to supply security gear to the UK parliament buildings without your kit being the dog's b*****ks - not at present risk levels, with a general election due any day, anyway.

All my previous experience of the firm that became BQT was that they were remarkably shy at trumpeting their successes. I first met John Genner at an Ofex exhibition in London soon after the Sydney Olympics - the event that made a mega-difference in the way Australia was viewed to the rest of the world, where one of the great memories of participants was the smoothness of the security arrangements. I had to virtually prise the fact of Banque-Tec's involvement out of John. I don't think publicity seeking comes easily to him - believe it or not - perhaps that's why some of the PR is so unprofessional.

Similarly, all the feed-back I had been getting from enquiries to the UK branch of BQT until I stopped bothering them sometime last year, was that the greatest sales prospects for their division seemed to be in the Middle and Far East - there was far too much competition in Europe and the UK!

'Too much competition', and BQT have now secured the contract for the Palace of Westminster! No wonder John Genner has the confidence to keep increasing his personal holding.

I will retire at Christmas - God willing. I don't know if it will be next Christmas, either, but I'm confident that BQT will be the foundation of my pension.

Bye for now.

Cheers,

I'm with you on that 'good sign' PG, and I think I see another sign too.

In Market Depth figures at close of trading today (Weds 9th March) it is noticeable that the first five lines of the Buy side are 'requiring' 1,260,714 shares, whilst the Sell side is 'offering' only 835,431... that makes it 60 - 40 in favour of the buy side unless my calcs are very wrong.

I know that the MD figures are not set in stone, but the 'Mickey Mouse' entries are not generally in the first few lines - the ones that are almost certain to be processed rapidly.

Strangely enough, all the really heavy 'sells' in the MD figures are in lines six to nine. Safely away from the action?

For the record, the count of traders/trades in the first five lines is 62-38 in favour of the Buy side too.

But hey! I read fortunes from tealeaves too. rolleyes.gif

Hi, DRUGGIST, you are quite right of course, I stand corrected. It was simply a typo, but how I managed multiple copies of it I don't know. I can only say in my defence that I have been laid up with one of the virulent viral illnesses we are all too prone to in the UK at this time of year. I've only been getting out of bed to check up on BQT and one or two other investments I have - sad, or what? But If you really are a druggist, I suppose you're the last one to look to for sympathy - I'm just more business!

QUOTE (ty.webb @ Thursday 17/02/05 01:39pm)

Sorry, ty.webb, in all honesty I can't say how long the security project has been 'in the pipeline'. But my assumption would be that it could well have been under consideration for some time but that the recent incursion into the Commons probably persuaded the guys in kneebritches (the historical 'security' men) to arrive in century 21 - at last.

Did any of you guys note the clanger in this announcement? When did you ever hear reference to the UK 'House of Parliamant'? Never before? Not surprising. We have Houses of Parliamant here: The Lords and The Commons. You can refer if you like to the house of Lords, or the House of Commons - but never the House of Parliamant! This must be one of the most prestigious contracts they've had, wouldn't a little care have made the announcement in keeping with that status?

For J. H. C's sake BQT, get your bloody act together!

This is a great little firm. More than anything, I would like them to be seen as such - worldwide. As I reported in my last post I have already tried to mark their card, without effect. So, Please, Please! PLEASE! You Guys - my friends in Australia - please bombard them with enough flack that they HAVE to take notice. For the sake of a little care, they're not just letting themselves down, they're selling themselves short. They have the potential to be a really great Australian export.

Sorry to be so heavy, but I feel very strongly about this.

Pushing my well documented bullishness about BQT to one side, I must agree with the comments that have been made about their PR/Press output - it certainly does their credibility no favours and gives easy ammunition to their detractors.

For what it's worth, I did try to bring this to their attention whilst they were still Banque-Tec here in the UK, I even - tongue firmly in cheek - offered my services as a Press Officer, but nothing seems to have changed. One wonderful clanger in an announcement that keeps coming up on my searches is the one that says, something like: 'BQT Solutions is now BQT solutions...' Clearly nobody has time to read/edit the PR Department's output. I just hope that's because all their efforts are being expended in the Sales Dept. rolleyes.gif Please, God.

My money is still on the technology, management, and drive of BQT, but by the lord Harry some literacy in their announcements wouldn't half help.

Cheers,

Things over here, Matey? Weatherwise - remarkably, disconcertingly, mild; a fair bit of sunshine for which we pay with a little ice and fog at night.

You Guys are a never-ending enigma to me. We have had two announcements from BQT today - well three if you count the correction - and the only comments forthcoming are about JG's further share purchases. Why is nobody talking about the fact that they've finally announced the new address. The one I posted about on Sat 05/01/05.

They've moved in next to Philips - now it's official. graduated.gif

Genner's buying like there's no tomorrow.

How do you spell that Homer Simpson sound? Duuuhhh?

At risk of seeming over zelous - and to save you guys rooting back through the archives - here's what I posted:

Hi, ty.webb,

Thanks for the link (which I note was dated december 2003) in your last post.

I'm interested to see the direction these recent posts are taking, that is the possibility of BQT eventually being taken over... even, "by the likes of Philips" to quote happy2.

The mention of Philips rang a bell that set me looking back through my BQT archive file, and there sure enough was a hard copy of an item from Property Review archives (the link was http://www. peopertyreview.com.au/archives/...710200009.html - but I can no longer access this... perhaps it has been removed?), I quote from my hardcopy:

"Catalyst Business Park, North Ryde NSW

Less than one year after acquiring this asset, IIF renegotiated the major lease to Philips Electronics to enhance the lease profile of the property.

Philips has committed to a four year lease extension over 45% of its existing space and a surrender of the remaining space effective July 2005.

As part of this transaction, Management has negotiated a new five year lease to BQT Solutions, for a portion of the space to be surrendered by Philips, amounting to 900 sqm of office space and 35 car spaces..."


Does anyone know if there has ever been a formal announcement of this additional/relocated office? I haven't heard of one.

I wonder just how close our cuddly little BQT is to Philips?

I don't know about you guys, but - much as I'd like BQT to become a major multi-national powerhouse to keep me into my dotage - I'm in this for the money. Recent events in the UK have seen minor outfits (see for example Baltimore Technology [LSE - BLM]) soar on the suggestion of a takeover - and in BLM's case it is only by an ostensibly impecunious little upstart (EPO), what effect would - say - Philips have on the equasion?

Regards,

Moonshine


Well now we HAVE got the formal announcement... Yes? wink.gif

Thanks, Krumbs, for your comments and particularly for the URL to 'stockness' (haven't had a chance to try it yet, but sounds useful). Thanks too, polyphemus, for taking the trouble to straighten me out - I clearly have a lot to learn about ASX. Worrying really when I have most of my pension tied up in BQT - bit like skydiving blindfold? But even skydiving blindfold is OK if you take the right precautions, so I was told by a guy from NZ... "All you do is cross your right leg over your left leg," he said, "then after you hit the deck yer mates can unscrew yer!"

Hi, guys,

At risk of talking a load of tosh - in which case you can all shoot me down and I'll try not to whinge in stereotype UK style - I'd like to run something past you for your comments.

For reasons of cost and time difference I do not have the advantage of streaming data from ASX like some of you, so I rely on the and-of-day 'market depth figures', but I do download the 'deal data', and it is from this static data that I'm working.

In today's trading data there are five deals that stand out from all the others:

10:01 531000 @ 0.27
10:20 1092000 @ .26
11.37 586495 @.26
12.31 802606 @ .24
15:56 354028 @ 0.25

I have no way of knowing which are buys or sells, other than by inference from the sequence of the prices. I am assuming that the first two are the sells that started - understandably!! - the price slide. They total about 1.6m units at a net cost of $427,240. After each of the next two (the last was the penultimate deal of the day, so has little following effect) the price rose again - so I am assuming that these must have been buys. So let's assume that all three were buys? They total about 1.7m units @ a net return of $431,371.14 - or a net profit of $4,131.14 - costs covered, a bit of a profit taken... and a dramatic price damping achieved - for whatever puropse.

Just a thought - any comments?

Cheers,

Moonshine

Yes, I can imagine him saying what the secretary told you. And, whatever your point of view, you have to say his money and his beliefs are in the same pot for all to see.

Kiwi, I know just how much it hurts, but keep on keeping on, that's the only way. Good to have you back, Matey.

texas4qld, I haven't had a chance to look at all your links (thanks for them by the way), I asked John Genner and Chris Blake(?) I think it was Blake, anyhow - their top tech man) the same question at a security exhibition here in the UK a couple of years ago. 'What edge has your company got over all these other smartcard / biometric companies?'

The answer I got was, in a word, adapability. They seem to be prapared to adapt anything - whatever it takes - to a customer's (or systems integrator's?) requirements. It seems to me that - given equivalent technology - adaptability could just be the deciding edge in a fluid, and fast-evolving field.

Thanks for your good wishes, which I take as sincerely meant, as probably are your other asides.

Be lucky yourself; although with your money snug in your pocket you must have other means of income, presumably, than share dealing.

For the sake of those who might otherwise think that I am not what I say, I'll tell you this much: I held about 1.5 million at the time of consolidation (1 for 3) bought at various times and prices on UK's Ofex. Having bought and sold a few since, I still hold around 1/3 million - on to which I intend to hang.

Given that you have your money in your pocket, as you say, I'm interested to know why YOU appear to take so much interest in BQT.

Hi, Wolverine,

There are a lot of 'old sayings' that do the rounds of the boards (and pubs, and other places were us humans chew the fat), many of them are just so much hot air, but one or two have that feeling of encapsulated wisdom. The one I'm thinking of is something like: 'The stockmarket favours the patient (or words to that effect). I believe that this saying will prove to be true in the case of BQT.

After all, if 'deals' could be simply produced out of a hat, we could all run successful businesses, couldn't we? Put yourself in the position of the BQT management. You've got a world-beating technology, you've achieved recognition from most of the major international systems resellers in your business, you've gone out and built-up great contacts at the very highest levels of decision-making world-wide, and you know - know - the deals are on their way. But first, all these layers of other people have got to get funding, get approvals, prove compatibility etc.,etc. So you're John Genner, and you've got panicking herds of investors who want to be rich - NOW! (Don't we all) How do you send the right signals, guys? You puts yer ackers where yer confidence is - at least that's what I believe.

In my opinion, the progress to date has been amazing. You've only got to look at 3G telephone technology to see how long it takes to get really new systems off the ground. There's a measurable delay - I think it used to be something like ten years - between the invention of leading-edge technology, and its acceptance into the mainstream of human society. This inertia has been reducing over the years and the current explosion in security technology has been accellerated in the way only a 'war' can do. So if BQT can have just a little of this market under its belt in 2005 - and I do believe it will - patience will be rewarded.

All just my opinion, of course. But I've got a lot riding on it too.

All the best, mate,

Grandfather came from Nova Scotia (that's new scotland, I think) and... place of birth was Cheshire, which is about as close to England, Wales, Ireland and... Scotland as you can be in the UK in any one place. And granddad was into cycling I hear, wink.gif so you never know.

Cheers cousin

Rocksteady, I regret that I will not be attending. I wish I could, but a flying visit from the UK is not realistic right now.

I too would be pleased to hear from any of you other BQTeenies who will be attending - particularly if you would be kind enough to give as a brief report of what transpires, and your personal impressions of course.

With thanks in anticipation (thats "Onya Blue" in UK-speak) laughingsmiley.gif

You're just TOO kind, kiwi - that DOES make me feel a whole lot better about MYSELF, but I'm still hissed off at not knowing the reason. On some UK sites they (the bogey men) put a notice in place of the 'offending' posting stating why it has been removed - even simply stating the fact of a removal seems more civlised behaviour to me. What I find even more offensive is the fact that other parts of Hotcopper are jam full of the vilest oscene rubbish, but that is OK by Big Brother. I guess dirty talk can't be construed to affect any-important-influential-body's wealth or income, eh? rolleyes.gif

Bye for now,

Thanks for that response, kiwi, but I don't think any of the scenarios you suggested apply in this case. I wouldn't mind if someone had the decency to notify me of any such transgression, if indeed I'm guilty. We certainly were not slagging one another off - I don't go in for that kind of time wasting, life's too short. It could only have been a few forthright comments made about ASX (not by me) that triggered it I guess... And I thought that you guys over there could take it on the chin wink.gif

Thanks again matey.

Have a good one.

Hi, Guys, grrr.gif
Sorry to be a grouch, but I'm pretty hissed of with another Oz site right now, HotCopper to be precise.

On the BQT thread there, I was having an interesting exchange over the past few days with Red Fox and smuggler, and was looking forward to the latest responses (I'm in the UK, so there's a time delay if I post after about midday here). What do I find today? All our posts have been removed... not a trace under my heading: 'Oz help for UK dumbo?' (me being the dumbo in question).

Question: Is this common in Oz? or on HotCopper in particular? Has Big Brother emigrated to Oz? In the UK we sometimes suspect that Orwell simply got the date wrong.

None of our stuff was contentious to my view, although Red Fox was pretty forthright in his views about ASX and information about who deals what and when being available if you are in the know.

I shall be interested to receive your replies, unless of course the Though Police are already erasing my words as I type.......................

Hi, guru61, thanks for that tip too. I'll set up similarly today.

Keep in touch.

"We are the BQTeenies, happy girls and boys..."

king louie, clearly you should do you own research, but as a friendly guide: BQT have supplied their kit and expertise - through major international third party security systems specialists (BQT are designers/maufacturers/suppliers and do not carry out installations) - for numerous high-profile sites; lately several airports (e.g. Bangkok, Gerald Ford, Adelade). As to the 'biggest', that depends upon how you define 'big'. In financial terms probably the contract for (I think) a communications company (in Saudi, I think. I haven't got the details to hand).

But for all the long-term followers of BQT (or BQTeenies biggrin.gif , as I have named us on a UK website) the excitement lies in the potential presented by the high profile and status of the contracts gained to date, and the international standing of BQT's partners.

As to contracts 'in the works'; remember BQT is a leading-edge security company, dealing in highly sensitive areas through third parties; in other words we plebs are always going to be the very last people to know what is going on. I am not going to speculate on some of the rumours that have been doing the rounds, you do your homework, but suffice it to say that if there is a trace of truth in any of them, without doubt, the best is yet to come.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

Moonshine

Thanks a million for that, dig deep.

BQT's close proximity to Philips can do nobody any harm IMO. Indeed, I wonder if the synergy might not lead to an even closer relationship wink.gif Mind you, they've also had a long-running involvement with Siemens too (only a thought cool.gif ) .

Hi, guru61,

I'd be interested to know how you came by this information (re new premises) - can you give us a source?

Being in the UK, my contact with the Oz media is minimal, so any links to BQT stories would be very much appreciated.

Cheers,

Hi, dubois,

My reason for selling a part of my holding was simply the need for cash at that point in time. My wife had been exceedingly patient with my previous history of throwing good money after bad - mainly on the UK OFEX - on other small cap companies, most of which no longer exist. She is a keen gardner and likes to over-winter (UK Winter = cold frosty miserable... any of YOU guys remember that?) her plants in a conservatory. Our ancient conservatory was finally collapsing despite my attempts at shoring it up and would not have see this winter out, so I foolishly promised a replacement, if only BQT could provide it. And of course BQT did! And, being an honourable man ( lmaosmiley.gif ) I kept my word. I deserve no praise fo my fine timing or judgement, it was just jammy luck - HERS!

And before anyone says anything, yes, perhaps I should hand over control of the family investments to the wife sadsmiley02.gif

Regards,

Moonshine

PS

Onya! JSM & LC,

I have also bought in again at various points since the earlier peak, in fact I sold out of another Oz company (Biometrics) to buy one lot.

Wolverine, I guess that relative stature and other macho posturing doesn't matter all that much when there's thousands of miles of sand, turf and ocean between us - that's one of the benefits of 'handles' too.. No point in getting mad, is there? Lucky for you though 'cos I'm a big nasty SOB... As ladies hairdressers go biggrin.gif

As it happens, I have lost nothing on BQT, in fact I'm having some home improvements built right now on a little profit I took at the $0.45 AUD mark, and the remainder of my holding is mainly in the black even now - I got ithe bulk very early here in the UK. I was simply observing that I thought I saw a takeover pattern emerging, one I have experienced before in other small cap stocks. Usually, the business is just starting to become established - lots of promise, often really good IP - and some big shark comes along and swallows the lot for peanuts... NOT usually good for small shareholders. I hope I'm wrong, and I probably am... That's another established pattern - in my like, that is.

Anyway, be lucky, matey,

Regards,

Moonshine

Wow! Respect! (as we multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, ph34r.gif no longer bowler-hat-with-rolled-umbrella cool cool.gif UK citizens are inclined to exclaim nowadays when pleasantly surprized... or indeed overwhelmed) That was an exercise worth undertaking. Amazing what sparks a little wind-up can strike. I understand more about you guys and your ASX from those few replies than I have from months of gentle exchanges and passive 'lurking'.

Thanks ty.webb, that was an education indeed. You are clearly far more knowledgable than I regarding stock exchanges wordlwide (mind you that's not difficult, I know dildly squat) but, given what you say about ASX -v- LSE etc (and this is a serious qestion, not a dig), why is it that LSE data is freely available worldwide whereas I had no option (not that I mind now) but to start up accounts in Australia in order A) to get data and B) to be able to deal at all in my Australian holdings?

Dig deep, yes, I'm sure we are singing from the same songsheet.

Wolverine, I may be a 'newbie' to ShareScene postings, but I've been looking in for some time and feel I know YOU quite well. I truly have great respect for Australia (with a capital 'A' please Wolverine - Respect! tongue.gif ) and all you guys, otherwise why would I risk my hard-earned dosh in one of your baby companies? In no way could anyone over here (UK) think of Australia or Australians as backward, hick or unsophisticated after your great show for the Olympics. Just trim the corks off your hats, dump 'em in the dunny and you could be really quite cool. My one real hands up admission, Wolverine, is I can't think what an ETO is when it's at home... I feel sure you will enjoy enlightening me.

Dubois, you got it in one!

Bye for now,

Wolverine, you seem to have no idea of what a market maker is; graduated.gif they are broker/dealers in any particular stock. If ASX has no market makers as you say, then it is nothing more than a simple matched bargain system... Surely Australia is more sophisticated than THAT? rolleyes.gif

BQT is a fledgeling company (with great potential). How many young growth companies can you name that have all the capital they need? The point is that they have no trouble raising capital when they need it; and that says more about the management than any ill-considered abuse you might sling at them biggrin.gif

Have a good weekend!

Hi, Guys

I’ve been thinking over the BQT trading patterns over the past few weeks, and something keeps jangling those deep down memory bells – I think there’s something familiar going on. But I am just an ageing amateur, so what do I know? I would be interested to hear your thoughts.

First, basic market principals:
1) For every ‘sell’ there must be a matching ‘buy’- otherwise there’s no Market.
2) When there are more sellers than buyers – price goes down.
3) When there are more buyers than sellers – price goes up.

Second, BQT’s attractions to a predator:
A) At the leading edge of one of – if not THE – biggest-funded, fastest-growing businesses, worldwide.
B) Possessing intellectual property that has been proven to be equal to or better than that of their international competitors (look at alliances they have made and status of contracts they are affiliated with).
C) Possessing a presence on the ground in most major areas where growth is strongest and demand for security is highest.
D) Like all ‘acorn’ companies, BQT appears to be precariously funded because not yet profitable.
E) Because news-flow has to be ‘third hand’ and considerably delayed (affiliate company gets contract, subsequently BQT gets ‘sale’) besides probably being security sensitive and therefore ‘filtered’, BQT’s SP is more than usually vulnerable to manipulation by negative rumours.

Third, observations in recent weeks (based on end-of-day market depth position – my only way of analysing here in the UK due to time difference problems):
· The amount of interest in BQT on BBs and market has been at an all-time high.
· The Market (to me that is the total volume of shares ‘ordered’ in total, adding buy to sell) has been growing on a quite steep up trend.
· The amount of dealers/orders on the buy side has been increasing.
· Buy volume has been increasing.
· Perversely, against this background – indeed on one occasion following an excellent announcement (Adelaide Airport) – the share price has been consistently falling (I have a spreadsheet graphing this data, and to see most factors rising, and share price falling, is really weird).

Questions:
· Is it possible that someone – perhaps a market maker, or market makers - is accumulating stock to cover one large buy order?
· If this is the case, would that skew the market depth to appear that there were more sellers than buyers?
· Can the above be done within the ASX system, or is something more subtle happening?
· Are we witnessing the opening moves of a takeover?

I look forward to your replies.

Cheers,

Moonshine

Yes, dig deep, thanks, I'm in in a big way (for me that is - small fishes in big ponds etc.), in fact BQT is my Great Hope for my pension. I've been in a long time - since Banque Tec came over to the UK and resided on our OFEX. I've met John Genner and some of the other top guys at exhibitions in the UK. I like tham as individuals, and I have as much faith in them as one could in any management team. They have certainly moved heaven and earth - against the odds - to get BQT to where is is now (in with the top movers and shakers in the security field worldwide) so there is no lack of faith or confidence there.

At this stage in the game my philosophy is: Eyes and ears wide open - fingers crossed. biggrin.gif

Good hunting All,

Yes, dig deep, strange how it has gone so quiet just as the buy side of the 'market depth' has flipped to 81% (81% buy : 19% sell) in the first five places (the serious bids, or those likely to get filled). wink.gif Could something be about to happen, I wonder.

Good luck,
