KVH files SEC DEF 14

ragingbull.altavista.com

Special meeting to amend the charter to increase the authorized number of shares from 11mm to 20mm....

I feel expansion is likely. If the anticipated demand for the new products is anywhere near what it projected, I doubt the current facilities would be able to keep up. Nice problem to have, but.... Should we expect a secondary offering? or, private placement? or ???? KVH has been sensitive to shareholder value/dilution in the past.

Any thoughts?

Roy

New Low-cost, Low-profile TracVision C3 Sets Standard for Maritime TV Tracking

MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 18, 2000--KVH Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: KVHI - news) is pleased to introduce the new KVH TracVision C3, a low-profile, low-cost satellite television antenna that uses the company's integrated Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) technology for foolproof satellite tracking. Measuring only 14 1/2`` high with a 32'' diameter, the TracVision C3 is an attractive addition aboard hardtop vessels and houseboats that brings mariners high-quality digital programming from DIRECTV, the DISH Network, or other high-powered DVB-compatible satellite systems worldwide.

The low-profile TracVision C3 system delivers digital-quality TV, data, and music signals from high-powered satellite television services such as DIRECTV and the DISH Network to boats throughout the continental United States, whether docked, swinging at anchor, or underway up to 100 miles off the coast. It also works with high-powered DVB-compatible satellites worldwide, including ExpressVu in Canada, and both Astra and Eutelsat in Europe. With TracVision C3 and its preprogrammed library of satellite services, mariners can choose between hundreds of channels of news, sports, movies, and weather in addition to commercial-free, CD-quality music and Internet-style data broadcasts.

``TracVision C3 provides the benefits of our proprietary integrated DVB technology in a lower cost product,'' explained KVH vice president of marketing, Jim Dodez. ``With a suggested retail price of less than $3,500, TracVision C3 is considerably cheaper than comparable 18'' marine antennas while still providing outstanding performance and coverage up to 100 miles off the coast of the continental United States.``

Stabilization is critical to maintaining satellite contact in marine applications where a vessel can be subjected to pitch, roll and yaw. KVH's patented three-axis gyro sensor constantly measures and counteracts vessel motion. At the same time, KVH's integrated DVB technology provides instant and foolproof identification of the satellite being tracked. These two technologies ensure that TracVision C3 provides an uninterrupted lock on the satellite transmission, regardless of the vessel's motion. TracVision C3's DVB compatibility also permits the system to switch to a second satellite when necessary to receive local or premium programming broadcast from a different satellite at another orbital location.

``KVH has established and maintained its leadership position in the mobile marine communications industry by developing innovative and quality products that provide superior service and reliability while meeting the evolving demands for advanced technologies,'' continued Dodez. The company's stabilized antenna technology was recognized recently when the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) presented its Best Satellite Television System award to a KVH TracVision system for the third year in a row.

``We are tremendously proud of the recognition NMEA has given us,'' Dodez said, ``as the recipients of these annual awards are selected by a vote of marine electronics dealers, distributors, and other industry professionals to highlight excellence in design, performance, and reliability in marine electronics products.''

KVH Industries, Inc. is a leading provider of innovative high-bandwidth communications products. Using proprietary fiber-optic and satellite antenna technology, the company is developing next-generation systems with greater precision, durability, and versatility for communications, navigation, and industrial applications. An ISO 9001-registered company, KVH has headquarters in Middletown, Rhode Island, with a fiber optic manufacturing facility in Illinois, and a European sales, marketing and support office in Hoersholm, Denmark.

Roy,

Have you seen what KVHI has done since I bought it? Ouch. Overall market tenor be damned, I'm taking credit for this precipitous fall. I'm also starting to smell a bottom (although perhaps that is from last night's burritos and negra modelo) so I may add to my KVHI stash. You longs are on notice!

To the thread, thanks for the insight on this little gem. I look forward to outperforming in '01. I hope that you all get to take the time to enjoy the holidays.

Leading Antenna Designer John Seavey Joins KVH Advisory Board
MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 27, 2000--KVH Industries (Nasdaq: KVHI - news) announced today that John M. Seavey, a leader in the field of antenna design and engineering and founder of Seavey Engineering Associates, has joined the company's Advisory Board. In his new position, Mr. Seavey will provide scientific and technical guidance to KVH's staff in the development of next-generation, in-motion antennas.

Mr. Seavey, a graduate of MIT, has been responsible for a wide range of antenna developments during the last 40 years. Among his contributions to antenna engineering are advances in folding and portable antenna designs, dual-band printed circuit arrays, ultra-high power antennas, angle-diversity antenna technology, and more than 100 mobile satellite antenna designs. In total, his company catalog lists more than 1,350 standard antenna products and Mr. Seavey himself has been awarded eight patents.

``As a member of KVH's technical advisory board, John brings tremendous experience and a record of innovation that are invaluable as we develop next-generation, mobile broadband satellite antennas,'' remarked KVH president and CEO, Martin Kits van Heyningen. ``His input and guidance will be tremendous resources as we design ultra-low profile and photonic phased-array satellite antennas that will provide access to high-speed, two-way Internet services and satellite television signals aboard automobiles and other vehicles. All of us at KVH are excited by the opportunity to work more closely with this acknowledged leader in the field of antenna design and engineering.''

John Seavey commented, ``We've worked closely with KVH Industries for several years developing antenna designs that optimize the performance of their mobile satellite television and communications systems.'' ``Both their company and mine share visions of future generations of mobile communications systems that will be dramatically smaller, more efficient, and less costly than the current state of the art,'' he added. ``I look forward to being a member of the KVH Advisory Board and providing input and guidance to their strategic product development plans.''

KVH Industries Completes $5 Million Private Equity Placement; Financing to Fund Photonic Fiber and Mobile Broadband R&D Projects
January 02, 2001 08:50:00 AM ET


MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 2, 2001--KVH Industries KVHI announced today the completion of a private placement of 800,000 common shares priced at $6.25 per share. The State of Wisconsin Investment Board, a current KVH shareholder, purchased the entire placement, which will be used to fund the Company's current Photonic Fiber and Mobile Broadband R&D projects. KVH intends to register the shares through a filing of Form S-3 during the first quarter ending March 31, 2001. Needham & Company acted as placement agent for the financing.

"During the past year, KVH completed initial work on two exciting R&D projects that currently show great promise," said Martin Kits van Heyningen, President & CEO. "This transaction funds aggressive pursuit of both projects while our current business continues to generate increasing levels of cash flow. We're delighted that a long-time shareholder, The State of Wisconsin Investment Board, has furthered its commitment to our vision and that the transaction results in minimal dilution to all current shareholders."

The Mobile Broadband project being pursued by KVH seeks to develop solutions to allow automobiles to receive high-speed Internet service and satellite television while in motion. Leveraging its expertise as a leading provider of mobile communications systems, KVH is developing ultra-low profile antennas practical for these applications. These antennas would allow automobiles to receive services via satellite, and would take advantage of the growing market for mobile broadband, especially on minivans and sports utility vehicles.

The Photonic Fiber project is focused on developing a new class of products for high-speed optical networking applications. These products will combine the Company's proprietary D-fiber with newly developed electro-optic polymers. If successful, the resulting photonic fiber technology would offer significant improvements in speed and cost to the $8.1 billion optical component market. Currently, fiber optic products from KVH are used to meet the growing demand for highly precise, cost-effective sensors in robotics, electrical current sensors, and other OEM applications.

KVH Industries, Inc., is a leading international provider of innovative mobile, high-bandwidth satellite communications systems and navigation products. Its award-winning products address a variety of markets worldwide, including mobile broadband satellite communications, tactical navigation, and fiber optics. The company has headquarters in Middletown, RI, (USA) with offices in Illinois, Florida, and Denmark.

This press release may contain certain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. The actual results realized by the Company could differ materially from the statements made herein. Factors that might cause such differences include, but are not limited to: failure to develop and market fiber optic products; lack of reliable vendors, service providers and outside products; continued poor military sales cycles; unforeseen changes in competing technologies and products; worldwide economic variances; and poor or delayed research and development results. Additional factors are discussed in the company's Annual Report on Form 10K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 27, 2000 and in the company's Form 10Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 19, 2000. Copies are available through the company's Investor Relations Department or web site.

So where will the new year take KVHI? siliconinvestor.com

November, December have not brought holiday cheer to KVHI. Will the new year turn the company's share price around?

Since we won't know for another month, I thought I would engage in some WAGing about 4Q numbers to pass the time.

I find the timing of this private placement interesting. Done the first business day of a new quarter, the timing suggests it could have been done last quarter if that suited the parties' interests. If KVHI had a money-losing quarter, the dilution created by the private placement would actually decrease the EPS loss. (I suspect this accounting trick is precisely why AMZN repriced its employees' stock options a few months ago, but I digress). Accordingly, if KVHI had a money-losing 4Q, it would be a great thing to dilute the shares a little at the end and use a larger number for the EPS calculation, thus minimizing the loss from a per-share perspective. But KVHI didn't do this. This suggests that KVHI, at a minimum, had a break-even 4Q. I know this was the forecast, but given the weaker economy, I was unsure of the effect on the consumer products, which still make up a significant portion of revenues.

Back to lurking.
