It could be because UPS says they have finished up this phase of deployment..

But I think we can be encouraged that the tax credits have been kept in place, retroactively, for 2015, as well as being extended into 2016.

If I'm not mistaken, if a customer makes an order before the end of the year, it would be eligible for 2015 tax credits, even if delivery takes place in 2016...

So I'm wondering if we'll have a surprise announcement before the end of the year?

The latest PR announced a very sizable contract to provide CNG Virtual Pipeline systems to Xpress Natural Gas LLC (XNG) out of Boston and New York.. Initial contract value is $8.4 Million (contingent on certification of Quantum's prototypes).. with an option for $13 million for upgrades and additional trailers.

finance.yahoo.com

XNG appears to be a very credible company, with credible partners and customers..

xng.com

So, here we have over $21 million in contracts for a company which has a current market capitalization of $20 million..

I'm hoping that we've seeing the bottom and it will be upside from here..

CNG distribution infrastructure is lacking.. and it's going to need to roll out even faster to provide the kind of fleet and non-fleet CNG fueling services.. Virtual pipelines could prove critical to expediting availability of CNG fueling stations.

Hi Hawk,

The first low hanging fruit will be daily routes that return every day to a refueling station.

Mostly urban delivery routes.

Texas has several - one here near the Johnson space center.

Mostly unmanned and operated through refueling cards i.e Wright refueling cards (enables access to secure refueling facility) and credit card charging capabilities.

Some one will be wanting to buy this company.

The bond holders now hold the marbles.

This oil price and natural gas decline no doubt deferred the demand for QTWW's products.

It is good technology and will prevail - but with different owners.

I've never held a position in this stock - but I sure did like what it did.

The first makers of autos were scoffed at and went broke - it did not mean that cars were not the future.

I concur.. that bond holder is Kevin Douglas.. a major player who has been compared to Warren Buffet in years past..

I'm not sure he wants to bankrupt the company, or take them over.. But I do kind of believe he's going to shuffle up the BOD and possibly management as well...

But UPS was a major customer last year, and it appears that they will be again this year.. And with their virtual pipeline orders pending future approval and an initial $8.4 million sale, there is a future for their technology..

However, I'm hesitant to add more, and I'm wondering whether I should sell what I have and just not look back. I've been waiting for years to see these guys get their financial act together.. And it hasn't happened yet.

Those fleet deals are sometimes legislated and have stability and repeatability - especially with utilities.

They keep the concept alive and result in R&D with product enhancements.

Who ends up with the technology long term is a big question.

Certainly the bondholders will have some say - but how big a haircut they have to take will beexpensive with time and attorneys.

I think it is beyond this small time investors desire and influence.

It could well be that Paccar or Mercedes would have interest as well?

It's over for QTWW.. I can only assume that the assets, patents.. etc will be auctioned off to an acquiring company and any existing shareholders will be wiped out..

I'm out, and right now I never want to hear the name Quantum again..

Someone could write a novel about this company and its history of failed opportunities and mismanagement..
