Markets have been turbulent following the unexpected vote to leave the EU. And rightfully so - economic growth is based on the confidence to invest in property, plant, equipment or research and development now in order to generate profits in the future. If those investments are deferred or not made then that growth does not materialise. Spending will also be deferred by consumers uncertain about…

Currently they have 4 operational (ARTEMIS, HYLAS 1, HYLAS 2, HYLAS 2-B) with plans to launch 2 more in 2017 (HYLAS 3 & HYLAS 4).They have been heavily loss making so far but promise rapid growth that will deliver profitability to the company in the future:‘…management expects cash generation to grow swiftly as revenues exceed Avanti's largely fixed cost…

Thought I’d do a brief write up of the sessions I attended on Friday & Saturday at Mello 2014. These are based on the bullet point notes I made at the time which were the things that stood out to me rather than an attempt to capture the full nature of each talk.

Been following the saga here just because it is an interesting one to look at. Given the debt situation you would think it is nailed on that it needs a rights issue to re-build the balance sheet. That said there is a couple of reasons why this may not be the case: 1. It is highly cash generative and has a strong back catalogue of…

The issue I have with Versarien (LON:VRS) is that despite all the potential of Graphene they seem to have spent so little R&D on it. £300k is peanuts in technology research. I simply don't buy that all these university Research Departments are funding all the costs of research and letting Versarien (LON:VRS) use it for free. Equally, I don't buy that a Chinese manufacturer is…
