Ailouros, wow, there's a name we haven't heard of in a while.

For the relatively new to this board: it's a Greek-named London investment firm incorporated in Antigua and Barbuda and run by a Canadian, and one of a long chain of sugar daddies for Saxe and Harary over the years.

A forty year old Israeli competitor Oran Safety Glass has 400 employees, including a large and expanding facility in Virginia.
They are delving into switchable glass for transportation using Niobium Oxide for a smaller particle. And claim that it requires less energy than EC, PLDC or SPD. Has less haze, requires less power, has a dynamic control (variable), and is half the cost of SPD, EC or PLDC.

POOR POOR N DIXON. HER FAVORITE STOCK PROMOTER BUYINS.NET (THOMAS RONK) siliconinvestor.com is a TOTAL FRAUD.

SOMEONE CALL SECURITY!! YET ANOTHER FRAUDULENT PROMOTER TIED TO RESEARCH FRONTIERS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
SEC Charges Company Insider with Multiple Frauds

Litigation Release No. 24297 / September 28, 2018Securities and Exchange Commission v. Thomas Carter Ronk, No. 1:18-cv-8908 (S.D.N.Y filed September 28, 2018)
The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged Thomas Carter Ronk with fraud in connection with multiple alleged schemes to peddle securities to investors and manipulate the market.

The SEC charged Ronk with disseminating false and misleading information in connection with unregistered offerings of securities in two microcap companies: Casablanca Mining Ltd. and Gepco Ltd. According to the SEC's complaint filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, Ronk touted the issuers' illusory business prospects and made revenue projections without any basis in fact. As Ronk solicited investors to privately invest in Casablanca and Gepco, he also secretly schemed to create the appearance of market interest and a rising share price in their stocks. Further, Ronk allegedly recruited the owner of a boiler room to induce buyers to purchase shares at higher prices. According to the complaint, this manipulative trading temporarily drove up Casablanca and Gepco's stock prices and enhanced the credibility of the issuers while Ronk's capital raising efforts were ongoing.

The complaint further alleges that Ronk engaged in a fraudulent offering of securities in a private company, Wealthmakers, Ltd. Among other things, Ronk, an owner and co-founder of Wealthmakers, misled investors about trading returns that Wealthmakers purportedly generated, along with the amount of seed capital invested by Ronk and other officers of the company.

The Commission charged Ronk with violating the antifraud provisions of Section 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 thereunder, as well as the anti-touting provisions of Section 17(b) of the Securities Act. The Commission is seeking a permanent injunction, disgorgement of ill-gotten gains along with prejudgment interest, civil money penalties, a penny stock bar, and an officer-and-director bar against Ronk.

The SEC's investigation was conducted by Brenda Wai Ming Chang, Howard Fischer, and Sheldon Pollock, with assistance by Timothy C. Nealon, under the supervision of Lara Shalov Mehraban. The litigation will be led by Mr. Fischer and Barry O'Connell.

"You cant redraw new lines in the sand. What is next years argument? PE numbers? One year its all a scam years later everyone is going to be fighting over REFR patents? I dont think so! You cant argue both ends here. You are arguing the company will never have enough sales to amount to anything. Then you take the other side and say its is so valuable everyone will fight over patents."

Since I said I was going to take a break from Nancy's board and post my replies here, I've kind of cornered myself into this awkward format, but I didn't want Finta's questions to go unanswered.

Sorry, Finta, but I can make both arguments and I am. The conceit of Harary's vision of REFR as the "royalty collecting, dividend paying machine" is that there's just one more hill to climb, they just have to get over the break-even point, and REFR shareholders get to feast on shrimp and crab balls on their private yachts in perpetuity thereafter.

Back in the real world, though, it just isn't that simple. Hitachi is not here to put REFR's interests ahead of their own. If they really have managed to turn the proverbial sow's ear that is REFR's SPD technology into a silk purse of something actually marketable, they're not going to just hand over a big cut of the profits to a company that contributed nothing to that effort, if there's anything they can do about it.

And it is most emphatically not necessary to concede Hitachi has succeeded in doing this, before pointing out that argument exists as a backup to the long-running bear case in REFR.

But go ahead, keep bidding up that stock. I'm sure it'll work out somehow.

REEFR Dilution Solution much like Xybernaut.. Current outstanding is 27,662,000 shares. When they had half as many shares outstanding the loss would double per share. REEFR Devotees have never understood basic REEFR math. If you double your shares outstanding, you halve your losses per share.

REFFR in the business of selling shares and not SPD film.!!

Xybernaut's Dilution Solution Expanding shares outstanding can make a shrinking loss look even better.

Rich Smith Jan 2, 2004 at 12:00AM

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. That's turning out to be the motto at wearable tech maker Xybernaut (NASDAQ:XYBR), which released the following, rather curious earnings announcement back in November:

"The net loss for the third quarter of 2003 decreased 41% to $4.7 million from the third quarter of 2002. The net loss per share also decreased to $0.03 per share from $0.10 per share in the prior year."

Now, hold on a sec. What was that again?

The net loss decreased 41%. So, Xybernaut lost 41% less money this third quarter than it did in the third quarter one year ago. Sounds pretty good, aside from the fact that the company's still losing money.

But wait! There's even better news. The net loss per share shrank 70%! That means long-term Xybernaut shareholders who last year saw a loss of 10 cents for each share they owned are probably delighted this year to see their company only lose 3 cents a share. Things are clearly looking up for this developer of portable computers and related software.

Or are they? How does a company lose X dollars as a whole, but a whole lot less than X dollars per share?

By diluting the bejeezus out of the long-term shareholders.

It only takes a glance at the press release to see what happened -- you don't even need to hunt through the filings on FreeEdgar to find it. The first table in the press release has an entry for "Weighted average shares outstanding" for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2002, and for the same period in 2003. In 2002, Xybernaut had 78,011,017 shares outstanding. By Sept. 30, 2003, that number had more than doubled to 158,635,685 -- for a grand total of 103.3% annual share dilution.

And if you double your shares outstanding, you halve your losses per share.


However, share dilution is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it can make your losses, per share, look better than they are on a company-wide basis. But if things turn around, and the company starts making a profit, then that profit gets divvied up among all the extra shares, too. Shareholders currently tickled at the narrowing losses per share may be less than thrilled when they see what 103.3% dilution does to their per-share profits.

Rich Smith owns no shares of Xybernaut. He might consider shorting Xybernaut but, as Bill Mann wrote, individual investors cannot practically short companies with stocks selling under $5.
