FGR, FIRST GRAPHITE LIMITED

stall speed??

....over the past two years FGR has been involved with a lengthy path of product verification. Have a look at the large number of products that we have successfully shown can be significantly enhanced with the addition of PureGRAPH. These products will form the basis of the push to commercialise our business, but they are only the start of that journey.


Some shareholders have complained about the time it is taking to show sales in our books. Admittedly, it is taking longer than we first anticipated, but that is typical of disruptive technology. Just proving that something is better does not alone generate sales overnight. I would suggest those shareholders stop looking in the rearview mirror at audited accounts and cash flow statements. Instead, they should be looking ahead at the doors which are opening with the strongly positive test results, for these will lead to a strong sales book.


It has been a long-held belief that graphene is a revolutionary nanomaterial which will enable a new generation of products to perform much more efficiently. The key point to recognise is graphene is an enabler which will be combined with existing product lines as opposed to a stand alone product itself. It is not simply a matter of substituting one product for another, which would be an easy decision to make; in with the new and out with the old. The need to integrate graphene, with its benefits into existing products, is a much more complicated process than one might first imagine. Manufacturing companies already using the state of the art processes will be sceptical of anything that suggests otherwise. Industry leaders will already be operating from a position of strength so they will not rapidly adopt new technologies if there is no urgent need to do so. Recognition of this observation goes a long way to explaining why the large-scale adoption of graphene enhanced products is taking its time.

FGR has gone into a trading halt
and the announcement states this "Trading Halt has been requested by the Company in anticipation of an update on its arrangements with planarTECH"

So what is this planarTECH?
QUOTE
planarTECH is a global leader in providing process and analytical equipment for graphene and 2D materials synthesis, as well as the integration of graphene into everyday products, such as our collaboration with Thailand-based IDEATE on a graphene-enhanced face mask.

Having gained extensive insight into a variety of graphene applications, planarTECH is now poised to enter a new phase of growth. To be part of this, learn more about our crowdfunding campaign at planartech.seedrs.com.
Website is touting the "graphene-enhanced face mask". Relevant and of the moment, yes. But.

There's an office in an industrial estate in Texas, and a street address in Cambridge UK (associated with the Graphene Centre), links to Korea, Singapore, our Deakin Uni.... but I can't help but get the feeling it's small time.

Crowd-funding !!!

FGR has gone into a trading halt in the middle of the 1;:10 rights issue . It would have to be "material" though the announcement doesn't say anything


(Currently little upside in it as the trades have all been around issue price 13c, though the oppies FGROC are carrying a cent or 2 ... though that may disappear when new ones issued)

Naw, Mick.

Your instincts were right, both up on the rumour before the Ann.

Geez, talk about rookie mistakes!
Posting can be such a humbling experience.
Mea Maxima Culpa.
At least you spared me the coprolitic comparisons.

I guess the 60 tonne pilot plant success was the leaked info that sparked the jump.
Up another 4% today.

the company may need to come out with a statement like this if a Speeding Ticket comes:
QUOTE
FGR is not aware of any information, which has not been announced to the market, which would explain the [upward] price movement;

though there was an announcement about controlling graphene oxide surface oxidation levels, suggesting FGR could produce consistent graphene oxide material that can meet specifications and be suitable for a range of applications (which will need investigating).


There has been consistent buying in the last few days lifting SP from 14 to 20.5c today

QUOTE

The Directors of First Graphene Ltd know of no reason why the shares have been sold down on large volume in the last 48 hours. The market activity has certainly not been reflective of the Company’s operating performance, which continues to make significant achievements on a regular basis as it pursues the commercialisation of its graphene
division.

Since the NICNAS approval was achieved late in May 2019, the Company has been inundated with queries regarding the supply of graphene to industry. It takes a number of months testing for each potential customer and then there follows a period of contract negotiation.

maybe the Graphene market is not so strong, and tiddlers are losing relevance?
