JYRA RESEARCH, INC. - RESEARCH
QUESTIONNAIRE

COMPANY:
Jyra Research, Inc.

INDUSTRY:
Solutions for monitoring IT systems

ISSUE:
E-Commerce

INTERVIEW WITH:
Mr. Erfan Ibrahim
VP North American Sales

GSN:
WHAT ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES IN YOUR
INDUSTRY AND WHY?
TS:

Quality of Service (QoS) from the end-user perspective is the most
critical issue in the industry because it is the end-user of applications
that determines the profitability of an organization. Poor QoS for
mission critical applications can adversely affect the productivity of the
end-user and therefore the bottom line profitability of the organization
in which he/she works.


GSN:
IN LAYMAN`S TERMS, DESCRIBE WHAT PROBLEM
YOUR PRODUCT ADDRESSES AND HOW IT SOLVES THE
PROBLEM:
TS:

The Jyra SMA engages application servers the way an end-user would
and measures the time it takes to perform different transactions. The
SMA collects the response time data and produces web based reports
to demonstrate the QoS of applications from different locations in a
network. The SMA software is installed on personal computers
attached to local area networks from where end-users access
application servers to capture their perspective of application QoS.
This approach has the dual benefit of capturing end-user perspective
of application QoS without being intrusive on end-user computers. The
web based reports can measure QoS of critical applications such as:

HTTP Web server response
SQL Database query

As well as network services such as:

DNS Domain Name Service
FTP Download
Telnet setup time
TCP Acknowledgement time

The SMA also measures the delay on the network using ping and trace
route to identify the bottleneck as being in the network or application
server. This helps reduce the trouble shooting time and saves on repair
costs.


GSN:
BRIEFLY EXPLAIN THE EVOLUTION OF YOUR INDUSTRY
OVER THE LAST 10 YEARS:
TS:

Over the last 10 years IT organizations have evolved from
predominantly main frame systems to client-server architecture. The
computer network has been changing from offering connection based
services (dedicated links) to IP networks based on connectionless
services. There has been an emergence of Local Area networks
connected via Wide Area links to form routed networks with multiple
hops from end-user to application servers.

Additionally, the rapid growth of E-Commerce in the last five years
and the migration of enterprise and government organizations from
paper intensive to electronic based processes have made IT a critical
economic driver. This is leading to large investments in increasing
network and application server capacity as well as end-to-end
application and network QoS monitoring tools. The application
performance management industry is attempting to fulfill this QoS
monitoring need to improve network throughput and consequently the
profitability of the business that depends on it.


GSN:
IN YOUR OPINION HOW WILL YOUR INDUSTRY CHANGE
IN THE FUTURE?
TS:

The application performance management market will go through
significant changes in the next few years. Software vendors serving this
market will have to provide scalable affordable and easy-to-use tools
to meet the growing demand of Service Providers, enterprise
customers, and government agencies that are establishing large
multi-site IP networks with web based application services. The tools
of the future will not only have to be able to monitor critical
applications end-to-end, but will also have to be able to identify the
source of a problem in real time to minimize the effect on end-user
QoS.

There will be considerable flux in the application performance
management market as software vendors will merge, be acquired, or
restructure to make their products meet the stringent technical and
business requirements of their customers. There will definitely be a shift
in the APM market from products that could best be described as nifty
gimmicks to robust products that produce comprehensive data from
which intelligent IT decisions can be made.


GSN:
HOW WILL YOUR COMPANY RESPOND TO THESE
FUTURE CHANGES?
TS:

Jyra Research Inc. is already poised to meet the changing demands of
the APM market. The Jyra SMA offers the scalability, ease of use and
affordability that the IT organizations are seeking. Future versions of
Jyra SMA will offer enhanced support for monitoring critical
E-Commerce applications and deliver reports that allow IT
organizations to be more proactive. Jyra Research will continue to
provide software that can be easily deployed in different environments
with minimal technical support. This flexibility will ensure more wide
spread deployments and consequently better assurance of application
and network QoS.


GSN:
WHAT IS YOUR COMPANY`S VIEW ON CONTROVERSIAL
ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR INDUSTRY?
TS:

One of the key controversial issues in the Application Performance
Management industry is how to monitor the application and network
QoS, and what constitutes the end-user perspective. Several vendors
are taking the approach of placing packet-monitoring agents on the
client desktops and monitoring the response times based on round-trip
delay of application traffic generated by the end-user.

Another group of vendors are deploying packet monitoring software
agents housed in proprietary boxes attached to the end-user segment
as well as the application server segment and monitoring the transit
delay of application packets between the two boxes.

Jyra Research Inc. employs a unique approach to measuring
application and network QoS from the end-user perspective. Instead
of measuring the actual end-user traffic patterns, Jyra SMA performs
synthetic transactions from its remote agents placed in different user
workgroups and measures the application and network response time
directly.

Jyra`s approach is based on argument that application and network
QoS monitoring should not be dependent on the end-user systems
because their usage profile may vary from segment to segment leading
to irregular data collection. While each end-user perspective is not
uniquely determined by this approach, the synthetic transactions give
an effective measure of global QoS from different end-user
workgroups without requiring end-users to perform transactions.

Jyra`s approach also has the added advantage of being able to control
the timing of the transactions and therefore producing time correlated
reports from different perspectives. This is critical to gauging the global
QoS of E-Commerce Applications, web-based services from ISPs,
and Intranet applications in enterprise and government organizations.
Additionally, the synthetic transactions allow network and application
layer latency to be viewed simultaneously which helps in identifying
bottlenecks, a benefit that cannot be realized in passive packet
monitoring tools.


GSN:
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM OR ISSUE THAT YOUR
PRODUCT/TECHNOLOGY WAS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED
TO ADDRESS?
TS:

Jyra SMA is a service level-monitoring tool designed to measure
network layer latency and application layer latency, end-to-end, from
the end-user perspective. This capability is required by enterprise
customers, service providers, e-commerce companies, and
government organizations to monitor network and application QoS to
proactively identify and correct business disruptive bottlenecks.


GSN:
WHAT MAKES YOUR PRODUCT OR SERVICE UNIQUE OR
SUPERIOR?
TS:

Jyra SMA is unique in its architecture, data collection technique, and
scalability. The use of Java, a distributed directory structure, and
presence of intelligent data collection and reporting agents is truly
unique in the market. The ability to simultaneously monitor the network
and application layer from multiple perspectives with summary
reporting makes it stand out in the APM market. Jyra SMA is a
leading QoS monitoring tool for today`s IP networks deploying web
based application services.

For the E-Commerce market, Jyra SMA can monitor the web server,
the e-commerce application and the back end database to give the
overall QoS picture in this multi-tiered architecture. When this is
combined with a time correlated view of network latency through ping
and trace route, Jyra SMA offers a truly unique E-Commerce QoS
monitoring package.


GSN:
WHAT INSPIRED THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR
PRODUCT?
TS:

Four years ago when Jyra Research Inc. was established there were
several vendors who were offering network and application
management tools that were device centric. With the increasing
demand for QoS assurance on multi-hop IP networks carrying mission
critical application traffic, device centric monitoring tools fell short in
providing IT organizations the perspective they really needed:
end-to-end from the end-user perspective. Jyra Research Inc. was
established to fill this void by offering a product that would capture this
end-to-end perspective and depict it in a way that would allow easy
verification of QoS levels.


GSN:
WHAT NEED DOES YOUR PRODUCT ADDRESS?
TS:

End-to-end network and application QoS monitoring for IP networks
used by service providers, E-Commerce companies, enterprise, and
government organizations.

IBM CEO sees technology shifts, not slowdown


(UPDATE: adds CEO quotes, background, context)

By Eric Auchard

NEW YORK, Dec 12 (Reuters) - Despite a raft of warnings from major technology companies, the world`s biggest computer supplier sees a shift in favor of new Internet business tools rather than any overall slowdown in spending on technology.

``From my perspective, it`s a little too early to predict that what we`re seeing is in fact a slowdown in any (national) economy,`` International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM - news) Chairman and Chief Executive Louis Gerstner said in an interview on Tuesday.

``Having said that, if in fact it (an economic slowdown) does happen, I think what you`ll see is a reallocation of technology spending dollars, not a diminution,`` he told Reuters after making a speech to an industry trade show in New York.

Gerstner is the top executive at the world`s largest computer company -- the player with the most to lose if big corporate spenders stop buying its mix of computers, software and technical services. But whether or not markets actually see a major downturn in hardware sales, Big Blue can win either way.

RiverSoft jumps 27% to 120p in London debut

Internet software company RiverSoft (uk:rsft) surged as it made its initial public
offering in London on Wednesday. The stock rose in early trade to 120 pence -
a 27 percent increase on the asking price of 94 pence. The Surrey and San
Francisco based company, which manages the flow of Internet data across
networks, had originally hoped for a market valuation at IPO of £400 million. It
later changed its target to £216-287 million. The 120 pence price puts the
company at the higher end of that valuation.

http://www.ftmarketwatch.com/news/story.asp?guid={77B680F4-D…
RiverSoft has no plans for U.S. IPO
. . .
Pleased by investors` response to Wednesday`s flotation, he said he thought the company`s
strategy had been well received.

He was particularly upbeat about a contract with Hewlett-Packard signed earlier this year to
include RiverSoft software in HP`s OpenView network management product.

Three-year-old RiverSoft makes software aimed at helping to manage the flow of Internet
traffic, set up network connections and fix transmission problems for Internet Service
Providers and large companies with their own networks. Its competitors include established
U.S. networking software specialists Novell [US:NOVL] and Network Associates [US:NETA]
plus Micromuse, where five of RiverSoft`s executives have worked.

The unusual suspects by Telephony staff
Online Exclusive, Dec 17 2000
The companies Telephony rounded up for this year’s Ten to Watch lineup
represent everything but the ordinary. No typical telco mentalities or
predictable me-too alibis to be found here: The rap sheets of the
companies in this crowd provide proof that standing out from the crowd of
communications service providers these days means taking a risky road.

This Telephony staff report profiles companies we believe will make
headlines during the next year—maybe indefinitely. Their unifying
characteristic is their competitive disposition. All but one of the
organizations that make up this year’s Ten to Watch were founded within
the past five years, and several celebrated their first birthdays this year.
That means they’ve been brought up against a backdrop of contention
where they’re always watching their backs.

But while the companies profiled on the following pages might be
considered accomplices in their push for competitive ascension, the
technology formats each of them wields are very different. Some of them
are lighting the way with glass—laying fiber in the metro network or using
it to connect cities and hubs. Some are shooting mobile apps across the
spectrum. Still others are not banking on a single technology but instead
keeping their options open.

The customer hits of these outfits also is varied, as are the services they’re
aiming to provide. Because most are new on the scene, they’re typically
going for high-end markets that will give them the biggest scores. But
some are stepping into the shadows, trying to take over smaller territories
where their more established rivals don’t yet lurk. Some of them are
taking new slants on old standby services such as voice, while others are
angling for new ways to host and deliver data content.

The burden of proof is on these companies to show hard evidence of their
potential. They’re featured here because they’ve done something to
deserve it—maybe they’ve raked in a lot of dough, shown that they’re
technologically crafty or proved themselves worthy of a showdown by
putting a dent in the customer base of their adversaries. Now they must
deliver on their promises.

All about control

Riding on the cusp of a technological wave is among the most exhilarating
times for any company. Of course, there’s always the danger of getting
swamped by the crest or being taken out by the undertow.

But for Jerry Parrick, CEO and founder of Yipes Communications, the thrill
of being at the front of the metropolitan optical wave is unmatched. Having
served as chairman and CEO of Nokia’s high-speed access group and as
president of the former U S West !nterprise unit, Parrick is familiar with the
spotlight. The difference this time around is that he heads a company at
the forefront of a technology that’s familiar to many of his customers:
Ethernet.

Broken down into its basic services, Yipes provides enterprise users with a
gigabit Ethernet connection between LANs that can be located as close as
next door or across the country. And while a number of companies claim to
be charging into the gig-E market with big pipes, Yipes’ plan is about more
than throwing huge amounts of bandwidth at the customer.

"We have a very ambitious plan to empower customers to control this
network," Parrick says.

Indeed, it’s that control factor that makes the Yipes plan different than
many others. Coining the term "Just In Time Bandwidth," Yipes’ three
currently available services let users control the amount of bandwidth they
want on a dynamic basis. "We characterize it as an application-aware
network," Parrick says.

Though somewhat new to the metro market, Yipes isn’t without
competition, namely incumbent carriers that have been offering to extend
ATM-based services. In response to the gig-E invasion, ATM advocates
continually point to the technology’s inherent quality of service (QOS)
capabilities. However, while Yipes’ technology is based on the Internet, it
isn’t quite the same, Parrick says.

"What [ATM providers] will generally cite is the common knowledge of QOS
in the Internet," he says. "The fact of the matter is, the network
architecture we’re using has several layers of QOS."

The architecture includes queueing behind every port, which lets the
company identify different levels of QOS. In the WAN, because the
company is buying transit from the largest carriers offering the most
stringent service level agreements, it also can enable multiprotocol label
switching.

"We have not had a single incident where an MIS director said to us, "No,
you don’t have enough QOS." Parrick says.

Ironically, Yipes is kicking its buildout into high gear at a time when the
investment community has turned sour on a number of other plans. That’s
particularly true of competitive carriers—a fact with which Parrick is well
acquainted. Still privately funded, Yipes has received about $230 million,
mostly from venture capital houses.

"I would characterize it as too many entrants in essentially the same
market niches," he says. "I don’t think you can have 25 or 30 competitors
in the same market without there being a shakeout."

In the metro market, though, there’s still enough room for differentiation,
he adds.

"If I was just offering big fat pipes, then I could say that the service is
going to become a commodity," Parrick says. "If I start laying on the
capability that I give customers, I’m no longer talking about a big, fat,
commoditized pipe. That’s actually a value-add."

subscription basis. MSPs operate similarly to Application Service Providers (ASPs) in that they deliver services via a network that are
billed to their clients. Unlike ASPs, which deliver business applications to end users, MSPs deliver system management services to IT
departments and other customers who manage their own technology assets.

RiverSoft Joins MSP Association, Defining Standards For Management Service Provider (MSP) Sector

SAN FRANCISCO – Dec. 20, 2000
– RiverSoft, a provider of advanced IP network management solutions, announced that it has
joined the MSP Association, an international consortium of companies that was formed to define, shape and promote the emerging
management service provider sector. The Massachusetts-based MSP Association, launched in June at PC Expo in New York,
plans to define and promote the management service provider industry by sponsoring industry research, providing a forum for
discussion of industry issues, creating market education programs and defining standards and best practices.

Recognizing that the network continues to become pivotal to the success of new and growing businesses, RiverSoft’s technology
provides MSPs the ability to offer customers a wide range of network management services. The company’s technology helps
customers decrease the frequency and duration of network failure by quickly finding and isolating faults, resulting in less network
downtime and greater productivity and profitability. Through its Alliance Program, RiverSoft offers MSP partners sales, marketing
and technical resources to assist them in marketing their bundled solution.

“RiverSoft`s involvement in the MSP Association is a benefit for all concerned,” said Gary Read, vice president of marketing for
RiverSoft. “By utilizing RiverSoft’s knowledge and unique network management technology, MSPs can effectively monitor and
manage their customers’ networks and greatly expand their portfolio of managed services. We look forward to the opportunity to
work closely with leaders in the industry to help define and advance the management services field.”

Hallo, bin ab sofort auch hier an Bo(a)rd!

Heute haben wir wieder mal das Spielchen der market maker

fast wieder auf den Vortagesschluß runtergezockt.

Das einzig positive, das ich diesen Sachen abgewinnen kann
ist, daß es bei positiven Meldungen seitens Jyra relativ
schnell (d.h. innerhalb 1-2 Tagen)wieder über 2USD hoch

morgen liebe SPAZEN aktionäre
gestern ist folgendes geschehen.
die market maker sehen die an der börse liegenden STOPPS der börsenteilnehmer die ihre gewinne vor verluste absichern wollen.
auf deutsch sie legen eine stopp los order z.B. bei 0,49$
das heißt :
wenn nur EIN echter handel bei 0,49 existiert wird auch die stopp los order des anderen börsenteilnehmers ausgelößt.
die MM`s schieben sich gegenseitig 1000 stück zu 0,49 zu und schon können sie abfischen, da ja ein handel existiert
sollte nun ein anderer börsenteilnehmer sein stopp bei 0,45 zu liegen haben kommt dieser als nächstes an die reihe.
DIE MARKET MAKER sehen die STOPP LOS ORDER`s im ORDERBUCH und Sie machen sich einen Spaß daraus anderen
Aktionären Ihre Lieblinge wegzuangeln.

Somit manipulieren Sie den Kurs für einen Tag nach unten um EUCH Angst einzujagen.
Ich habe NIE STOPP LOS ORDERS im MARKT.
Stellt Euch vor dieser Aktionär war Arbeiten und sieht nicht was an der Börse los war.
Heute macht er den Briefkasten auf und sieht einen ausgeführten Verkauf zu 0,43.

Pegasus Research: Potenzial der Krise

Als einer der Ersten sah man die Kapitalprobleme vieler Dot.coms - trotz neuerlicher Warnungen gibt es in der neuen Studie auch wieder Hoffnung

10.01.2001(GH 100).
Rund ein Drittel der insgesamt 335 untersuchten amerikanischen Unternehmen sind von akutem Geldmangel bedroht und sollen binnen
eines Jahres vor dem Aus stehen, meldet das renommierte Forschungsinstitut Pegasus in seiner neuesten Studie. "Der finanzielle Druck
ist so groß wie noch nie zuvor", sagte deren Präsident Greg Kyle über die Ergebnisse. 2 Milliarden Dollar Kapital haben die an den
Börsenplätzen gehandelten Internet-Unternehmen verpulvert, das könne nicht so weitergehen, speziell bei solchen Unternehmen, die mit
wenig zusätzlichem Kapital ausgestattet seien, so die Prognose für die Zukunft. Also werden viele mit dem "Bauch nach oben" enden,
während es nur wenigen gelinge, schließlich neues Kapital zu beschaffen.

Neue Liste erstellt - Investoren interessiert
Todeslisten sind nichts Neues und auch nicht sonderlich originell, manch einer vermutet sogar, dass die vorschnelle Veröffentlichung
sensibler Unternehmensdaten ebenso zum schnelleren Aus eines Unternehmens führen können. Der Tenor lautet: Alle wurden in einen
Topf geworfen, die faulen wie auch jene Unternehmen mit Potenzial. Bislang waren die Voraussagen von Pegasus in den drei
Vorgängerstudien stets zutreffend, die aufgestellten Firmen wurden danach entweder übernommen oder stellten ihre Geschäftstätigkeit
ein.

Doch wer meint, die Investoren zögen sich auf breiter Front zurück, der sieht sich getäuscht: Viele smarte Finanziers schauen sich auf dem
gebeutelten Markt um und suchen nach lukrativen Anlagemöglichkeiten. Ein Grund mag sein, dass der Industriezweig, trotz der o.a. 2
Millarden Dollar, den Gewinn gegenüber dem 2. Quartal 2000 steigern konnte. Rund 10% höher lag der Gewinn im 3.Quartal und liegt
insgesamt bei rund 15 Milliarden Dollar.

bargain-hunters unterwegs
Was diese risikobewussten Anleger suchen, sind Unternehmen, die den brutalen Ausleseprozess überstehen und danach mit rosigen
Zukunftsaussichten boomen könnten. Bill Hambrecht, Chef eines Auslegers der Investmentbank Chase H&Q, ist in diesem Geschäft aktiv, er investierte bereits in verschiedene Internetunternehmen. Hintergrund der Investmenttätigkeit ist die Annahme, dass die Anlage in
kapitalstarke Firmen keine große Rendite abwirft.

Ein weiteres Argument liefert Ryan Jacob nach, dessen Jabob Internet Fund im ersten operativen Jahr einen Verlust von 80%
erwirtschaftete. "Wir hatten eine komplette Umkehrung nach dem 1.Quartal 2000, nachdem zuerst alles stark überbewertet wurde, sind wir
nun in einer Phase, in der das Allermeiste stark unterbewertet ist". Grund genug, sich zu engagieren, meint auch Paul Cook von Minder
Net Fund. Er glaubt, viele Dot.coms verfügten nun über die besten Bewertungen. Für eBay erwartet er ein Wachstum bis zu 81% in diesem
Jahr. Dennoch mahnt er zur Vorsicht, denn viele Dot.coms werden wohl beerdigt werden, so die Einschätzung des Fondmanagers.
Alles schon mal dagewesen
Nach Hambrechts Meinung ist ohnehin alles schon mal dagewesen. In den frühen 80ern gab es nach seiner Erinnerung eine
gleichlaufende Entwicklung während des Computerbooms. Was damals die neuen Applikationen für den Markt bedeuteten, könnte in
Zukunft die Kabellostechnologie sein, meint zumindest Hambrecht. Jedoch wird die Investorentätigkeit nicht noch einmal so ungezügelt
sein, sollte tatsächlich eine weitere Welle der Dot.com-Innovationen ausbrechen, lautet das Fazit des Pegasus-Autorenteams.

been selected by Jersey Telecoms to manage its growing internal and external IP networks. Using RiverSoft’s network discovery
and fault-finding technologies, Jersey Telecoms expects to improve the proactivity of its network operations center and ultimately
deliver enhanced customer service.

Jersey Telecoms will initially use RiverSoft solutions to manage its internal communications network and IP service backbone,
which consists of broadband routers, ATM switches and an ASDL service run on Cisco equipment. These infrastructures were
previously managed using Freshwater’s SiteScope and CiscoWorks 2000. Jersey Telecoms will continue to use these products
and integrate them with RiverSoft to deliver a more comprehensive network management solution.

Jersey Telecoms has also recently launched the first of two new co-location centers where RiverSoft will manage customer
equipment. RiverSoft’s technology will encourage Jersey Telecoms’ customers to house their network equipment within these new
facilities.

“Not only does RiverSoft provide excellent IP network discovery, but an easy-to-use front end with powerful graphical presentation of
the network,” said Ted Hefford, head of Jersey Telecoms’ Broadband Group. “With this comprehensive network visibility, and
RiverSoft’s root cause fault management capabilities, both ourselves and our customers can be confident in our ability to
substantially reduce IP network downtime as well as increase the availability and operational efficiency of our Island’s network.”

“Today’s service providers face the challenge of delivering high service availability to customers while keeping pace with continually
evolving network infrastructures,” said Mark Rivington, European marketing director for RiverSoft. “RiverSoft’s network management
approach cuts through such complexity, providing a level of automation and timeliness that offers tremendous value to providers of
business-critical networking services.”

About Jersey Telecoms

Telephone service was first established in the Offshore Island of Jersey in 1895 and since 1923, the telecommunications systems
in the Island have continued to be developed by Jersey Telecoms and are comparable with those of the most advanced countries in
the Western World. Over the past 10 years, £63 million has been invested to provide the Island with a modern, high quality network
and there is a further planned expenditure of up to £77 million for the next five years.

Jersey Telecoms’ fully digital exchange network in the Island is extremely modern and utilises the very latest technologies which
are upgraded on a regular basis to ensure Jersey is not left behind in terms of standards and new services. Digital connections
reach out to customers’ premises via an extensive fibre optic network, over which connections to the System X exchanges are
made, or sophisticated Local Area Network (LAN) connections provided. The use of the very latest Synchronous Digital Hierarchy
(SDH) systems provide the backbone for the inter-exchange connections and the submarine cables which link Jersey with the
outside world.

The JT GSM mobile telephone network now supports over 44,000 local users (in a population nearing 90,000) and connects with
more than 100 other foreign networks. As well as standard telephony, all major services such as ISDN, Centrex, Digital Private
Circuits, Telex, Fax & Data, Voicemail and Paging are also available to the Island community. The JT GSM network supports
mobile fax and data services as well as Short Messaging Service (text messaging) and a pre-paid mobile service.

Jersey Telecoms provides a number of Internet services to the Island which connect to the JT Internet Backbone Service, a fully
resilient high-grade connection to the world wide web. High speed Internet access using the latest Asynchronous Digital
Subscriber Loop (ADSL) technology was also recently launched ahead of BT last year.

YIPES GIVES BERKELEY INVESTMENTS` BUILDINGS
LIGHT-SPEED ACCESS TO INTERNET


Boston-based real estate investment and management company to use
Yipes` optical IP network for broadband tenant connectivity

SAN FRANCISCO, January 15, 2000 — Yipes Communications, Inc., the
defining provider of bandwidth on demand, today announced that Berkeley
Investments, Inc., a real estate investment, development and property
management company in Boston, has chosen Yipes to provide scalable,
high-speed Internet service to its tenants.

Berkeley Investments (www.berkeleyinvestments.com) owns more than $300
million in assets and manages more that 2.5 million square feet of commercial
property. Berkeley has established itself as an industry leader within the
converging worlds of real estate and telecommunications. Through its large
roster of new-economy tenants, Berkeley has developed a thorough
understanding of the telecommunications requirements of the high-tech sector.
Yipes will enable Berkeley to offer all tenants within their portfolio access to
cost-effective, scalable and reliable broadband services.

In the past, tenants have had to access the Internet mostly through ordinary
dial-up phone lines, far too slow to support serious Web surfing, multi-media
applications, or e-commerce. With Yipes` service, tenants will enjoy
state-of-the-art fiber-optic connectivity up to a gigabit per second-20,000 times
faster than a dial-up modem and at least a thousand times faster than the
typical DSL connection.

( BW)(IL-INTL-ENGINEERING) Next Five Years to Bring Tremendous Change to Telecom Industry



Business Editors

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 23, 2001--

IP over photons to come sooner rather than later

Despite the recent downturn in the stock market, technology continues to revolutionize the communications industry in response to
exploding traffic volumes and demand for enhanced services. This innovation will drive carriers over the next five years to an
IP-over-photon type architecture, according to Allan Van Buhler, vice president of global product development at Global Crossing.
"It depends on the type of carrier you are, but strong convergence continues to push toward a Layer 1 network fairly quickly.
Fundamental changes will take place in the near future, and incumbent carriers won`t able to stop it."
It`s not so much that new killer apps will emerge to drive the next-generation IP network, according to Van Buhler. It`s more a matter of
the converged network enabling carriers to do better than what they currently have in their sights--such as delivering efficient and reliable
VPNs, streaming content, and video services. The intelligence and network management for such services will reside both in the core
network and within the customer premise.

"You have to distinguish the network services you`re discussing when considering where intelligence will reside," Van Buhler says.
"Hybrid IP VPNs will be managed at the network level, not at the CPE. On the other hand, CPE in the future will help enable the routing of
customer communications around the edge of the network without entering the core by providing some nominal types of switching."
Van Buhler, who is overall conference chairperson for the Carrier IP World Forum next month in Miami Beach, says unified messaging
service is a good example of a killer app waiting to happen--one which will be propelled forward by the next-generation converged
network.
"Unified messaging is available today, but it`s not scalable or deployed effectively. It would become a killer application if someone could
do it effectively. What`s needed for this is a seamless, end-to-end IP network that allows for basic voice and data transport and
termination."
Bringing such enhanced applications into the core of the network and letting the network do it more effectively and efficiently is the key
deliverable of high-bandwidth, IP-centric architectures such as IP over fiber.
The Carrier IP World Forum, taking place February 12-15 at the Fontainebleau Hilton Resort in Miami Beach, Florida, is sponsored by
the International Engineering Consortium. The conference, co-located with the IN World Forum, will focus on challenges facing service
providers who seek to migrate to the IP-based network of the future. According to Van Buhler, the most important thing such service
providers need to do is believe in this vision of a converged, optical architecture for telecommunications.
"The ones who get left behind are those who are so skeptical that they wait on the sidelines while someone else figures it out," he says.
"To stay competitive you`ve got to keep moving forward."
"We haven`t seen anything yet," he adds. "What we`ve seen recently in the Internet will pale in comparison to what we`ll see during the
next five years. The pace of technology and innovation is astounding."

Topics to be addressed at this "convergence" event include evolving access networks, migrating to packet-switched topologies,
softswitch advances, achieving carrier-class QoS, managing next-generation networks, enhanced service creation and provisioning in
converged architectures, IP VPNs, and more.
Speakers include a wide variety of industry luminaries, including John Edwards, chairman and CEO, I-Link; Michael Bhurmann, senior
vice president and general manager, Software.com; Hassan Ahmed, president and chief executive officer, Sonus Networks; RJ Mahadev,
vice president of global softswitch product management, Level 3; Kjartan Pierre Emilsson, chief technology officer, OZ.COM; Bill
Morrow, vice president of group technology strategy, Vodafone AirTouch; Greg Santoro, vice president of Internet and wireless data
services, Nextel; John Young, vice president of network services, Sita/Equant Telecommunications; Kamran Sistanizadeh, chief technology officer, Yipes Communications; Patrice Carroll, senior vice president of engineering, WorldCom; Robert Klessing, founder and vice president of product development, Telseon, and many more.

Antarius
In den nächsten Tagen wird es im positiven Sinne ernst für
Jyra! Hier meine Begründung:

Im 10-Q vom 14.11.00 hat Jyra folgendes berichtet: "The
Company (Jyra) is seeking to partner with other companies
who have complementary products such as providers of
quality of service based billing solutions."

Ergänzend kamen zu dieser Zeit immer wieder Gerüchte auf,
Archie Adams würde sich häufiger in Frankreich aufhalten.
Jedoch konnte keiner etwas zu dem vermeintlichen Hintergrund
sagen.

Bekanntlich hat Jyra seinen Fokus auf Service Provider und
Telekommunikationsunternehmen gerichtet. In diesem Zusammen-
hang bitte ich die Aufmerksamkeit insbesondere auf Jyra`s
Press Release vom 21.03.00 ("Jyra Goes Mobile") zu richten.
Darin verkündet Jyra, daß man in der Lage ist mobile Netze
unter dem GPRS-Standard zu überwachen. Bekanntlich ist VIAG
Interkom gerade dabei, als erster Anbieter in Deutschland
GPRS einzuführen, um dem mobilen Internet zum Durchbruch zu
verhelfen. Weder Micromuse, noch Riversoft, noch Keynote
sind derzeit in der Lage mobile Netze zu monitoren.

Welches Unternehmen passt nun in diese Zusammenhänge?

Führendes Unternehmen im Billing-Bereich, d.h. im Management
von Abrechnungen, und dies insbesondere für
Telekommunikationsunternehmen ist die lange Zeit am Neuen
markt notierte LHS Group. Abrechnungssystemen kommt für die
mobile Kommunikation insofern hohe Bedeutung zu, als daß in
Kürze auch in Zentraleuropa die Zahlung via Handy (anstatt
in Bar oder per Karte) sich rasch verbreiten wird. Bei
Bezahlung per Handy wird der gezahlte Betrag dann mit der
Handyrechnung abgebucht. In Skandinavien ist dies bereits
heute Standard.

LHS wurde im vergangenen Jahr von der britisch-französischen
SEMA Group PLC übernommen. SEMA ist einer der größten
europäischen System-Integratoren und eines der größten
Outsourcing-Unternehmen (46% des Umsatzes). Der Telekom-
Bereich gilt als der wachstumsstärkste Geschäftsbereich von
SEMA.

Ich zitiere nun das Wall Street Journal Europe vom Mittwoch,
den 24.1.01 (Seite 5):

"Sema sells software to mobile-phone operators that helps
them manage their networks and bill customers. Despite
Sema`s recent travails, analysts say demand for this kind
of software is growing fast. Many operators are now
upgrading their networks to handle more data traffic using
a technology called general packet radio service, or GPRS,
and such companies are expected to order new network
management software."

In dem gleich Artikel wird ein Analyst der CSFB zitiert,
daß LHS in der ersten Jahreshälfte 2001 einen rückläufigen
Umsatz haben wird (-25%): "He added that the acquisition
of LHS may have caused Sema`s existing telecom business to
have "lost some of its momentum at a key point in the GPRS
buying cycle.""

Dies bestätigt, daß SEMA dringend aktiv werden muß, um den
"GPRS buying cycle" voll auszunutzen.

Meines Erachtens kann es sich bei der Lösung des Problems
nur um Jyra handeln. Dies würde auch die sehr positive
Stimmung im Hause Jyra erklären, die seit Anfang des Jahres
zwar von Mitarbeitern bestätigt wird, jedoch unter Verweis
auf "laufende Geschäftsverhandlungen" nicht begründet wird.

Eine strategische Allianz wäre aus Sicht von SEMA zum
jetztigen Zeitpunkt höchst attraktiv. Analog LHS muß es zwar
keine Übernahme sein (dies halte ich für äußerst
unrealistisch), jedoch könnte die Allianz durchaus eine
strategische Beteiligung von SEMA an Jyra beinhalten.

Für einen solchen Abschluß spricht auch, daß Jyra plant, in
den nächsten Wochen doch noch die Hauptversammlung für das
letzte Jahr abzuhalten. Vor dem Hintergrund eines solchen
Deals dürfte sich das Management endlich wieder zeigen
können.

Ich bin mir recht sicher, daß sich für diejenigen, die es
tatsächlich geschafft haben, trotz der frustrierenden

IDC Report Confirms Significant Benefits for RiverSoft Customers

Study finds RiverSoft customers save an average of $4.5 million annually


SAN FRANCISCO, January 25, 2001 – RiverSoft (LSE: RSFT.L), a leading provider of IP network management solutions today
unveiled the results of a Return on Investment study performed by International Data Corp (IDC). The report, “Quantifying the ROI
Benefits of IP Network Management,” investigates the tangible business benefits derived from the use of RiverSoft solutions in
today’s IP network environments.

The report was produced based on interviews with RiverSoft customers and focused on three areas of savings: efficiency,
productivity and availability. The results show that RiverSoft solutions allow service providers and enterprises to execute operational
change faster and for less cost while increasing network availability and reducing total cost of network ownership. According to
IDC, RiverSoft customers saved an average of about $4.5 million annually. Additionally, IDC estimates that customers typically
receive payback less than 3 weeks after implementation.

“In the networked economy, the availability of networked resources has become the yardstick by which corporate managers judge
IT performance,” the report states. With networks becoming more complex and qualified IT personnel difficult to find, network
management software must be able to keep pace with the dynamic nature of the network with minimal involvement of network
professionals. In particular, as businesses become increasingly reliant on IP networks, they are placing enormous demands on the
IP network infrastructures of their enterprises and those of service providers.

“Keeping these infrastructures performing at the highest levels with 24x7 reliability calls for a new breed of network management
system,” notes Elisabeth Rainge, Program Manager of Network and Service Management at IDC. “The new network management
systems must be able to handle rapid and explosive changes in network infrastructure with a diverse mix of devices, protocols and
communications links. Given the scarcity of qualified IT personnel, they should also function with minimal involvement of network
professionals.”

“RiverSoft represents the next generation of network management solutions designed to keep up with the dynamic pace of change
in network infrastructures,” said Gary Read, vice president of marketing for RiverSoft. “We believe that the results of this study
show our solution is not only scalable and reliable but brings about benefits that will significantly impact any business’ bottom
line.”

RiverSoft has taken the results of the commissioned survey, combined with other network management metrics gathered by IDC,
to create the “RiverSoft ROI Tool” which the company will be demonstrating at the upcoming COMNET trade show in Washington
D.C.
The interactive tool will enable prospective customers to calculate the return on investment of the RiverSoft solution prior to
purchase.

RiverSoft will be offering personalized consultations using the RiverSoft ROI tool at its COMNET trade show booth (#856) in
Washington, D.C. from January 30 - February 1, 2001.

Betr.: SEMA

die Überlegungen von Cenix teile ich soweit auch, ich denke nur, daß es nicht SEMA ist.
"Dies bestätigt, daß SEMA dringend aktiv werden muß, um den "GPRS buying cycle" voll auszunutzen."
auch das wird richtig sein, nur ist die Sache inzwischen andersherum: andere sind im Moment aktiv in der Hinsicht SEMA übernehmen zu wollen.
Schon in einer Pressemitteilung vom 12. Januar
( http://www.sharecast.com/news/scnews1.asp?StoryID=3502 )
und in einer weiterer am gleichen Tag wird berichtet:
"Rumours doing the rounds yesterday suggested Cap Gemini had approached France Telecom unit Compagnie Generale des Communications -- Sema`s single largest shareholder -- in a bid to buy its 16.8 pct stake in the Anglo-French group."
Nach 2 Gewinnwarnungen verdichten sich inzwischen weitere Übernahmegerüchte von SEMA:

Logica makes takeover approach to Sema
Exclusive: By Neil Thapar
Thu 25 Jan 2001

LONDON (SHARECAST) - Software group Logica has made an estimated £3bn takeover
approach
for its troubled rival Sema Group
. But this was before the latest profit warning
on Tuesday according to senior bankers.


Top City sources told ShareCast that Logica, worth around
£8bn, made an informal approach to Sema within the past
few weeks, though it is still unclear how much it would be
prepared to pay for control.

Logica`s interest has come to light following two profits
warnings by Sema in the past three months, more than
halving its share price since the first warning shocked the
City in November. Earlier this week Sema again said that it
expected profits to be about £95m for 2000, compared to
previously heavily downgraded forecasts of £99m.

Sema`s problems, stemming from a disastrous acquisition
last year, have already sparked widespread market
speculation of a takeover.

`Logica has made an definite approach and Sema`s
shareholders want out,` one highly placed source said.
. . .

selbst wenn an einem Geschäftsabschluß Jyras mit Sema etwas dran wäre, wären diese Verhandlungen erst einmal auf Eis gelegt solange Übernahmegeschichten laufen, wäre im übrigen nicht das erste Mal ;), daß Jyra sich dann erst mal abwartend zurückziehen müsste.
Trotzdem denke ich nicht, daß da überhaupt irgend etwas mit Sema läuft,

Ich teile aber sehr wohl Cenix Einschätzung, daß z.Z. irgend etwas sehr Wichtiges läuft, allein schon, daß Jyra bei einer kommenden HV seinen Aktionären - besonders den Großaktionären um Rienk v. Kamer herum - etwas bieten muß, damit sie noch bei der Stange bleiben oder sogar noch nachkaufen (denn die kommenden QZ Mitte Februar kann man ja wohl auch wieder "in die Tonne treten", das kann sich ja wohl jeder selbst ausrechnen bei der Anzahl der PRs im letzten Quartal).
Denn wer faßt denn diese Aktie noch an, ein "Fremder" doch sicher nicht, außer event. Daytraders und die Maketmaker, die sich hin und wieder bei Gelegenheit einige (tausend) Stücke hinlegen, um sie dann bei einer PR - wie die letzte zu Cisco - schnell mit Gewinn zu verkaufen. Eine Meldung wie die zu Cisco holt auch keinen "Hund mehr hintern Ofen hervor", denn die Jyraveteranen können sich an so manche Cisco-Jyra PR erinnern, die nichts an Kursbewegung aufwärts noch an "revenues" ! sichtbar gebracht hätten.

Davon abgesehen ist der allgemeine Markt sowieso im Moment so, daß die Aktionäre alle auf Verlusten sitzen und mit ihren verbrannten Fingern im Großen und Ganzen keine Aktien anfassen wollen.
Da greifen die Firmen jetzt schon selbst zur Hand und kaufen ihre eigenen Aktien zurück, weil sie keiner haben will:

unter anderem:
Other tech companies announcing buybacks this week include Keynote Systems (Nasdaq: KEYN - news), which provides diagnostic services to companies operating e-commerce Web sites, and Internet consultant Razorfish (Nasdaq: RAZF - news). Keynote, whose stock fell 80% in 2000, plans to repurchase $50 million worth of shares, nearly 13% of the total outstanding.

hat den markt und die Anleger aber auch nicht mehr interessiert (was üblicherweise positiv bewertet wird, wenn eine Firma ihre eigenen ! Aktien zurückkauft),
den Kurs hat`s nicht interessiert, dümpelt bei Keynote weiter vor sich hin.
Und es komme mir niemend mit dem Spruch, den ich ab und zu höre "ja aber!, die waren mal ganz oben" , ja Klasse bei 177 us$, da "freut" sich ja der Anleger, der bei 150 oder von mir aus bei 100 us$ noch gekauft hat mächtig, denn . . . sie sind nur noch 1/10 wert;
da geht`s uns ja mit Jyra "vergleichsweise" noch echt gut, oder,
mal abgesehen davon, daß bei einer "ordentlichen" event. kommenden Pressemitteilung demnächst das Aufholpotential enorm ist.

YIPES CTO WINS COMNET HONOR

Dr. Kamran Sistanizadeh named Ovations award winner for access network design and engineering


SAN FRANCISCO, January 31, 2001 — Yipes Communications, Inc., the

"I am honored to be recognized by ComNet and tele.com for helping to
implement the access network of the future, today at Yipes," said Sistanizadeh.
"By breaking bandwidth bottlenecks between corporate LANs and high-speed
backbones, our optical IP networks are pointing the way to faster, more flexible
and affordable data services that will enable a host of new Internet applications."

05.02.2001: Nächster Internet-Boom startet Ende 2001!!
Nach der Riesen-Miese kommen schon bald wieder Goldene Zeiten für
Internet-Aktionäre. Diesmal sogar auf dem soliden Fundament hervorragender
Unternehmenskennzahlen, denn die Umsätze und die Ergebnisse werden seitens
der Analysten schon bald wieder nach oben korrigiert werden müssen.

„Internet“ – dieses Wort hat sich im Jahresverlauf 2000 von einem
glücksgefühlauslösenden Nomen zu einer nur mehr in Verbindung mit Crash und
Verlusten gesehenen Buchstabenreihe gewandelt. Kursverluste bei Größen wie
Yahoo! oder CMGI von –84 % bzw. –96 % belegen das Debakel wohl eindeutig.

Zum einen war es klar, dass die überzogene Internet-Euphorie, die zu einer
massiven Aufblähung mancher Firmenbewertungen geführt hatte, ein Ende finden
würde. Dass dieses Finale allerdings so rasch und so jäh erfolgen sollte,
überraschte sämtliche Analysten. Doch nach einigen konjunkturbedingten ruhigen
Wochen könnte im Herbst ein neuerlicher Boom einsetzen.

Laut einer Prognose des amerikanischen Marktforschungsunternehmens Forrester
Research sollen die Ausgaben für Online-Werbung im Jahr 2001 doch stärker
ansteigen, als noch vor wenigen Wochen befürchtet wurde. So erwarten die
Analysten für unseren Kontinent ein Werbeaufkommen von 1,2 Mrd. Euro. Dies
entspricht einer Steigerung von 74 % im Vergleich zum Jahr 2000, in dem 0,69 Mrd.
Euro umgesetzt wurden. Während das erste Halbjahr 2001 noch relativ ruhig sein
könnte, sollte die zweite Jahreshälfte deutliche Zuwächse bringen.

Dieser neue Internet-Boom könnte primär von der Old Economy getragen werden.
So wurden im Jahr 2000 lediglich 31 % der Online-Werbeausgaben von
traditionellen Unternehmen getätigt und satte 69 % von New Economy-Firmen. Im
Jahr 2005 soll nach Ansicht von Forrester die Welt völlig anders aussehen. Dann soll
der Anteil der alten Wirtschaft auf 85 % der Internet-Werbeausgaben angestiegen
sein, die neue Wirtschaft hätte dann nur noch einen Anteil von 15 %.

Dieses Szenario, verbunden mit sich nun bereits stabilisierenden Weltbörsen, sollte
im 3. Quartal 2001 den Grundstein eines auf positiven Fundamentaldaten
basierenden Kursanstieges der Internetwirtschaft bilden. Damit würde das Wort
„Internet“ im Jahr 2002 nicht nur für Wachstum, sondern auch wieder für
Aktiengewinne stehen.

RIVERSOFT ANNOUNCES OEM AGREEMENT WITH CISCO FOR 2.5G AND 3G MOBILE WIRELESS MANAGEMENT

Cisco to integrate RiverSoft`s Fault Manager software into future mobile wireless management solutions

FEBRUARY 12, 2001

SAN FRANCISCO and LONDON - February 12, 2001 - RiverSoft (RSFT.L RSFT LN), a leading provider of IP (Internet Protocol) network management solutions, today announced that it has entered into an OEM agreement with Cisco Systems, Inc. Under the terms of the agreement, RiverSoft will provide Cisco with a tailored version of RiverSoft Fault Manager software that will provide specific mobile wireless network management functionality to support Cisco`s 2.5G and 3G network elements. The solution will ship to several customers this month and is expected to be generally available by mid-2001.

The RiverSoft advanced discovery, status monitoring and root-cause analysis software is designed to recognize and adapt to changes in networks with a reduced need for time intensive intervention by skilled network personnel. The software will enable the fault management of Cisco`s GGSN (gateway GPRS support node), PDSN (packet data serving node) and Catalyst switches.

The software will provide network managers with a correlation capability allowing them to quickly isolate and determine root-causes of network problems thereby significantly reducing problem resolution time. An additional benefit is the reduction in event traffic that will be sent to other OSS management applications, easing a significant challenge for wireless service providers.

"In our testing, RiverSoft`s technology was able to successfully discover our devices and their connectivity. Additionally, the software`s flexibility and powerful integration capabilities with other OSS applications made it a good fit to provide fault management for our mobile wireless solutions," said Jon Shantz, vice president of Cisco`s Mobile Wireless Group. "We believe that this application will provide Cisco`s mobile wireless service providers with a software tool that will positively affect productivity and performance."

"The Cisco OEM deal scores a bulls-eye for RiverSoft strategy. After all, if your goal is to gain widespread adoption of your network management technology what better way to move that agenda forward than to have Cisco as your champion?" offered Valerie O`Connell, managing director for enterprise management, Aberdeen Group. "Cisco`s choice of RiverSoft technology to safeguard reliability for its wireless customers is a testament to the effectiveness of RiverSoft`s network management innovation and to the sharp business acumen of Cisco.
Another win/win."

"Today`s announcement marks not only our entrance into the growing mobile wireless market, but a new relationship with a market leader," said Phil Tee, chairman and chief technology officer of RiverSoft. "We are extremely pleased that Cisco has chosen to work with RiverSoft in developing a solution for mobile wireless service providers. RiverSoft is clearly executing on its strategy to strengthen the OEM business. This agreement further validates the RiverSoft next generation technology and is an important milestone for the company."

One of RiverSoft`s stated objectives is to populate the marketplace with RiverSoft technology by signing major OEM agreements with established market leaders. The Cisco OEM agreement represents RiverSoft`s third major OEM partnership in the past six months. In November 2000, RiverSoft announced that Hewlett Packard Corporation acquired a license to use RiverSoft technology to power future HP OpenView solutions. In September 2000, RiverSoft announced an OEM agreement with Intel Corporation. These agreements demonstrate the strength and adaptability of the RiverSoft network management solutions and significantly expand the reach to corporate enterprises and service providers.

RiverSoft share price set to swell (hold Tuesday, subbed)
By Tony Glover
Mon 12 Feb 2001

LONDON (SHARECAST) - RiverSoft, a £340m newly-listed UK software company that has carved a unique niche for itself in the US, is winning a series of orders that the City believes will continue to grow its revenues for years to come.

Despite a burn rate of £2m a month, City stockbroker UBS Warburg has set a target price of 185p for the stock, even though it has already risen to 142p from 124p when the company had its IPO in December.

A deal with £140bn US-based internet networking giant Cisco announced this morning, is one of a series of contracts with companies including Intel and HP that analysts believe will increase the company’s future revenues.

Milan Radia, an analyst at UBS Warburg, said, "The Cisco deal will probably bring £300,000 in revenues for 2001, rising to £1m to £2m per year thereafter. But this is set to rise even higher by around 2004 as third-generation mobile phone networks begin to grow."

The Cisco contract comprises an exclusive agreement to provide fault management software for Cisco’s next-generation mobile wireless network management systems.
RiverSoft specialises in software that plays on corporations’ fears of their communications networks failing. It also provides damage limitation software to corporations such as British Airways and Deutsche Telekom, in the event that their IP network crashes.
RiverSoft says its software reduces the time spent identifying a network fault, from days to seconds.

Radia said, "There is now terrific potential for RiverSoft’s products among telecoms network operators. The big growth area in this sector is providing high-value data services to corporate customers. It is absolutely vital that these services are robust and reliable and this is what RiverSoft’s products can help ensure’.

He added that as they have no direct competitor in the UK - although there is a partial overlap with some of the software provided by UK-founded, US-based, £3bn Micromuse.
Before founding RiverSoft in 1997, RiverSoft chairman Philip Tee was chief technical officer at Micromuse.

FrontRunner ist bekanntlich Jyra-Partner.

FrontRunner hat die feinsten Adressen im britichen Telekom-
Bereich als Kunden und ist sehr stark innerhalb der gesamten
British Telecom-Gruppe beschäftigt (z.B. BT MNS, BT Labs,
BT Syncordia, BT Concert und BT Cellnet).


Hier Auszüge aus den Marketingmaterialien von FrontRunner
betreffend Jyra:


Jyra provide FrontRunner and their ASP partners with critical
advantage in pursuing high value video streaming business.

Especially Jyra provide FrontRunner`s customers with
competitive advantage over the major competitive provider
in this sector, Akamai.


Akamai

Akamai is a product that assists in the delivery of
broadcast transmissions over the Internet. This is achieved
by having a number of specialist devices hosted at key
locations within the Internet. Customers who are
subscribing to a broadcast transmission will then be
connected to a local Akamai device. The traditional
approach would be for the customer to be pointed to a
device situated in the broadcasting company`s premises.
Performance issues over the Internet would affect the
quality of the transmission.

The key financial benefit to a service provider is the
revenue derived from hosting the Akamai device. A smaller
but obvious benefit would be the reduction of bandwidth
consumed between the hosting site and the broadcasting
company as customers are attaching to a local device for
the transmission. The main benefactor of this system is
Akamai, the broadcasting company and the end-consumer.
Service provider still need to deal with the bandwidth
within their own network that the broadcast traffic is
consuming.

The most important point is that Akamai retain the lion`s
share of any revenue, purchasing only a number of commodity
services from the service provider. Akamai own the customer
they will always be able to source the required commodity
hosting and bandwidth services from the lowest bidder.

Jyra

Service providers derive their revenue by selling bandwidth
and hosting facilities. As the Akamai modal provides little
real increase in revenue and still leaves the network
traffic problem, a more constructive approach is required.
Broadcast transmissions require low levels of delay and
little or no loss of packets. In short a quality of service
that meets broadcast requirements. Service providers, by
using Jyra product, can configure their own systems to meet
this requirement.

End-to-end performance can be measured from key locations.
One of these locations could be the broadcaster. Jyra will
measure the delay across the network and highlight
pro-actively devices/links that are introducing unnecessary
latency. The information produced by Jyra can easily be
made available to customers via a web browser as part of the
service.

Jyra allows service providers to tune either their entire
architectures or individual VPNs to meet the performance
requirements of individual customers. The opportunities for
profit arising are immediate and revolve most crucially
around attracting end customers who have specific
requirements for premium or managed performance. These
include customers with any of the following requirements

Service providers can directly address streaming ASPs and
customers managed performance for the broadcasts. Jyra
allows service providers to offer Premium services for
Premium Customers: This capability allows service providers
to tune either their entire architectures or individual VPNs
to meet the performance requirements of individual streaming
or content customers. The opportunities for profit arising
are immediate and revolve most crucially around attracting
end customers who have specific requirements for premium or
managed performance. These include customers with any of the
following requirements; Live video-streaming customers,
event centered hosting, Real Time Market Data.

Service providers partnering with Jyra retain the lion`s
shares of content performance revenue and retain the
relationship with the end customer.

Jyra and FrontRunner

The chart below shows Jyra reporting a router configuration
error along the path of a video stream or any performance
sensitive content.

Jyra`s crucial differentiation is that it allows FrontRunner
to cross-reference the effect of his error on the streaming,
or content performance capacity end to end. See Chart below.

Jyra`s ability to report performance in this way is crucial
for network operating efficiency and also for providing
competitive statistics to support service providers
competing with Akamai.

Jyra will allow FrontRunner to demonstrate that they offer
superior and most importantly managed performance when
compared to Akamai. Jyra could compare and contrast the
performance available from streaming and content services
available from their partners with those of Akamai. Working
with Jyra, performance could be managed to demonstrate
dramatic real advantage to the customer over using Akamai.

The relative end to end capacity available between a point
of monitoring is well illustrated above where the time taken
to download a file equivalent to 100 128K streams is
illustrated. The brown line could illustrate performance
available from a stream running across a Jyra managed
network and the gray line, the same stream across an
unmanaged network.

Additional Jyra Profit Creation Modules:

1. Graded Levels of Performance: Jyra enables providers to
offer relative levels of performance for specific services.
Jyra provides FrontRunner with a means of measuring,
verifying, reporting and billing for services at different
levels of quality to different customers. Even simply
including Jyra`s reporting within a standard service has
the effect of radically reducing price erosion of the
service.

2. Performance Selection Gateways: Jyra enables providers
and customers a view of end to end performance and of
performance hop by hop across any network, even beyond the
owned network domain. This provides a visibility of the
relative effectiveness of different paths through networks
allowing customers to select the most effective and allowing
providers to look beyond peering gateways and manage overall
performance. This in effect allows service providers to
operate a bandwidth exchange allowing customer to select
the most performant and therefore profitable paths across
the Internet

3. Customer and Service Performance: On-line customer care
systems populated by Jyra reports can show each customer the
actual performance across the network between any of his
sites. The customer can identify the cause of any delay and
is guided about what to purchase i.e. more bandwidth or more
server capacity, in order to improve performance.

4. Performance Audit and Services: Jyra opens up revenue
streams through performance audit activity. Jyra automated
reporting combined with a lite weight version of our product
that can installed on a laptop and taken to customer sites
provides a ready stream of revenues. This service is
available through Cisco`s Professional Service Channel as
the "Performance SNAPSHOT" Service.

These performance models can be deployed in combination or
individually to greatly increase the revenue take form an
existing base of customer and to attract new high value
customers.

Conclusion

Working with Jyra and providing performance management from
within FrontRunner`s own network will attract high margin,
high value customers to whom FrontRunner will be able to
sell high value services. Adopting Akamai will reduce
FrontRunner to a commodity player as platform services such
as rack, bandwidth, and low level managed services become
free from major player.

Jyra hat einen neuen Director. Phil Bryant (seit 1998 bei

Kurzbeschreibung:
Mit der T-Aktie fing alles an: Das Spiel um Dividenden wurde zum Volksport, Klein- und Kleinstanleger mischten mit, jeder wollte dabei sein. Kaum ein Wirtschaftszweig fuhr in den vergangenen Boomjahren so üppige Gewinne ein wie die Finanzbranche.
Angeheizt wurde alles nicht nur von Banken und Analysten, auch die Medien - Zeitschriften, Verlage, Börsendienste - haben kräftig an der Charthysterie verdient. Nach dem Absturz der in immer wahnwitzigere Höhe getriebenen Kurse kam die große Ernüchterung.
Günter Ogger beschreibt die wahren Hintergründe, nennt Verantwortliche aus Politik und Wirtschaft, die die Gier nach mehr immer weiter anheizen, analysiert die dubiosen Machenschaften der "Big Player", die beim Abzocken die Fäden in der Hand halten und nennt die vielen Verlierer - Day-Trader, Hausfrauen, Pensionäre. Hier erfährt der Leser, was es mit dem Neuen Markt wirklich auf sich hat, wie mit Fonds abkassiert wird, wer vom "Berater" am Bankschalter bis zum Chefredakteur des Wirtschaftsmagazins tatsächlich das große Geld macht, wo und wie der (Klein-)Anleger meist das Nachsehen hat. Wer glaubt, an der Börse werde mit wirtschaftlichem Sachverstand und nach seriösen Regeln vorgegangen, muss sich eines Bessern belehren lassen.
Günter Ogger macht deutlich: Manipulation und undurchsichtige Manöver der Großanleger, Massenpsychose und nicht zuletzt purer Zufall beherrschen die Szene. Trotz aller Kritik geht es dem Autor nicht um eine endgültige Verdammung der Aktie:
Sein Anliegen ist vielmehr, dem Leser durch sachkundige, bestens recherchierte Informationen und konkrete Ratschläge rund ums Spekulieren den richtigen Umgang mit den riskanten Dividendenpapieren zu vermitteln. Denn: Aktien könnten durchaus sinnvoll zur Vermögensbildung breiter Schichten genutzt werden - doch nur wer wirklich Bescheid weiß und nicht auf zweifelhafte Meinungsmacher, Banker und Analysten hereinfällt, wird im riskanten Spiel ums Geld schließlich gewinnen.


schönes Wochenende trotzdem

P.S.:
1. ich kenne dieses oder andere Bücher vom Autors selbst noch nicht.
2. "Ähnlichkeiten" zu Jyra wären rein zufällig und sind meinerseits nicht beabsichtigt.
3. ich gehe als Jyraaktionär eher vom letzten Satz der Kurzbeschreibung aus, auch wenn uns allen der Untertitel schon seit Jahren sehr geläufig und bekannt vorkommt.
für das Buch von Günter Ogger gibt es jetzt unter der von mir angegebenen Seite eine Leseprobe!:
http://www3.buch.de/pages/functions.phtml?IdentNR=200454106&…

Leseprobe:
Die Party ist vorbei, die Verluste bleiben. Noch immer sitzen Deutschlands Aktionäre auf Bergen hoffnungslos überbewerteter
Börsentitel, noch immer haben viele von ihnen an den herben Verlusten zu knabbern, die ihnen der Kurssturz auf Raten im Jahr
2000 bescherte. Aber unverdrossen wirbt die Propagandamaschinerie der Finanzwirtschaft um weiteres Geld für die Börse.
Banken, Fonds und Vermögensverwalter rechnen uns reich und machen uns arm.
Dieses Buch will nicht die Aktie verteufeln, es richtet sich auch nicht gegen die Börse. Einziges Anliegen des Autors ist es, die
Leser zum vernünftigen Umgang mit den riskanten Wertpapieren anzuleiten und sie auf die Gefahren aufmerksam zu machen, die
auf dem verminten Gelände des Aktienmarktes drohen.

A number of sad consequences

Sub-2000 Nasdaq not technically much worse, but...

By Deborah Adamson, CBS.MarketWatch.com
Last Update: 5:34 PM ET Mar 12, 2001


LOS ANGELES (CBS.MW) - Amazing how much stock investors put in a number.

The Nasdaq index started with a "1" on Monday for the first time since December
1998, a most depressing development considering it began with a "5" just a year
ago.

While the number 2,000 isn`t technically important, investors` confidence and sense
of security is undermined by the tech-heavy index collapsing below that threshold,
experts say.

"It`s bad," said Robin Griffiths, chief technical strategist at HSBC. The breach is
"more psychological than anything, but I think it`s very important."

Nasdaq drops in recent memory "nearly always end at the place of capitulation,"
Griffiths said. "The break below `2000` means the capitulation leg has started."

Capitulation involves investors who staunchly held their stocks in the belief their
companies would bounce back. In a capitulation phase, even these stalwarts
buckle and sell as their portfolios keep dropping.

Al Goldman, chief market strategist at A.G. Edwards, calls it "irrational depression."
Hear Goldman`s analysis.

The Nasdaq "could easily fall another 500 points," Griffiths added.

But this "climactic" period is unlikely to last longer than two to three months, he
said. After such a time, beaten-down "gorilla" stocks such as Cisco (CSCO: news,
msgs, alerts) , EMC (EMC: news, msgs, alerts) and Sun Microsystems (SUNW:
news, msgs, alerts) could well rally.

However, Griffiths does put forward a worst-case scenario.

By overlaying the movement of stocks during the crash of 1929 onto today`s
Nasdaq, with adjustments, the index could fall as low as 800.

But the technical strategist believes that`s an extreme.

The country is much stronger economically today than it was during the Depression
years, he argued. Besides, while the tech bubble has burst, the industry itself is
quite real and promising.

Nasdaq in 1998

The 2,000 level breached Monday amounted to the Nasdaq`s high for 1998, said
Elaine Yager, a senior technical analyst at Herzog Heine Geduld.

But within three months from that July peak almost three years ago, the index
tumbled to 1,357 "when the Fed started reining in money supply," she said.

Yager calls the Nasdaq decline a "downside roller coaster."

The next support level for the Nasdaq is 1,960, then 1,900, 1,800 and 1,711, she
said.

However, "nobody`s going to pick a bottom here," Yager added.

In the meantime, the tech wreck has taken another one down: The S&P 500, which
has a good number of tech stocks. The S&P 500 is in a bear market with more than
a 20 percent correction, she said.

But what has been more startling is the failure of the Nasdaq to bounce back from
"oversold" conditions and stick to a rally.

"The damn thing is oversold and stays oversold," said Steve Todd, publisher of the
Todd Market Forecast investment newsletter, named the No. 1 market timer for the
past three years by Timer Digest.

Buyers are ignoring these oversold conditions, he said.

In technical analysis, being oversold means a market in which there was stronger
selling than was justified by the fundamentals. When indicators point to oversold
levels, the market generally rallies.

At this point, Todd doesn`t rule out a "secular" bear market. It`s a deeper, more
serious decline like what happened in Japan.

Although he`s not saying this decline would last for 20 years, it certainly could last
longer than the cyclical bear markets investors have experienced in the last two
decades. In the latter, the downturn was short, part of a regular adjustment of equity
prices.

This time, because the Nasdaq has shot up to more than 5,000 so quickly, the
downfall could be more prolonged and painful, he said.

Investors should be in cash, especially older folks, Todd said. For the bold, they
might want to consider some bargain stocks, such as Cisco and Oracle (ORCL:
news, msgs, alerts) , which are good buys right now.

As for people who are sitting on steep losses in technology, "it`s too late to sell. You
may as well sit on it," Todd said.

P.S.:
alte "in Jahren Leid erfahrene Jyrahasen" sitzen das ganz locker aus, oder etwa nicht?
http://beta.cnbc.com/stock/last10.html?sym=JYRA

"Klasse" wie man (die MM, market maker)das so an der OTC hinkriegen, den Kurs mehrmals an einem Handelstag mit jeweils nur 100 Stück um ca 10 - 15 % nach unten zu manipulieren!

Ansonsten scheinen event. auch einige Jyra Aktienäre mal eben für Path1 Aktien umgeschichtet zu haben wegen des anstehenden Nasdaq-Wechsels; zeigt nur das übliche Bild, dass sie (leider wieder einmal) überhaupt nicht informiert sind über "wirklich große Ereignisse", die in sehr naher Zukunft anstehen und bekannt gegeben werden.


Antarius
Antarius,

bin voll Deiner Meinung. All diejenigen, die eigenes
Research betreiben, sollten eigentlich wissen, daß die
derzeitige Ruhe bei Jyra vor allem damit zusammenhängt, daß
ein Großteil des Teams an einem Auftrag arbeitet.

Ich würde daher die derzeitige Situation als Ruhe vor dem
Sturm werten. Wenn Jyra den Auftrag tatsächlich bekommt -
und derzeit deutet einiges darauf hin - dürften die Glocken
schlagen.

Das mit den Umschichtungen in PNWK sehe ich genauso. Man
kann ja davon ausgehen, daß die meisten Jyra-Aktionäre auch
in PNWK investiert sind, da Path 1 schließlich ebenfalls
über LTR in Europa plaziert und "vermarktet" wurde und wird.

Da bei Path 1 der Hype derzeit größer ist und es auch noch
keine größeren Enttäuschungen gab, springen einige bei Jyra
ab und gehen in PNWK rein.

Allerdings sollte man immer bedenken, daß PNWK noch gar
keine Umsätze macht (Jyra hat dagegen welche) und auch das
upfront-payment von Barco nur eine einmalige Zahlung zur
Entwicklung eines Produkts darstellt und somit eher als
Übernahme von Entwicklungskosten zu werten ist.

Regelmäßige und stetige revenues fehlen auch hier. Insofern
hoffe ich, daß die PNWK-Aktionäre auch hier nicht - ähnlich
wie bei Jyra - enttäuscht werden und irgendwann die Geduld
verlieren.

Rein unter Bewertungsaspekten und von der Reife der Technologie
her würde ich derzeit Jyra den Vorzug geben. Allerdings erkennt
das der Markt derzeit nicht und es fehlt einfach der Hype.

Andererseits: Jyra bei 13 Mio. USD - das kann ja wohl nur
ein Witz sein. Der PNWK-Anteil ist alleine USD 3 Mio. wert.

Darüber hinaus hat die Firma strategische Partnerschaften
mit Yipes, RiverSoft, Cisco, PSINet, FrontRunner, Energis,
Vanco,....... alles keine schlechten Namen.

Jyra wird auf jeden Fall nicht von der Bildfläche
verschwinden und sie werden auch definitiv nicht bei 13 Mio
USD bleiben.

@Cenix

Wie lange bist Du denn schon bei Jyra dabei?? Denn:

es gab bei Jyra immer viele Versprechungen und nichts ist
passiert, es gibt schon lange grosse Namen auch veröffentlichte
und nichts ist passiert, Jyra macht Umsätze: irgendeiner
unserer alten Boardteilnehmer beschrieb diese mal so: die
machen weniger Umsatz als die Imbissbude bei ihm um die
Ecke... hat was.
Die Technologie ist sicherlich ok, bzw. das Produkt aber
verkaufen konnten sie das bisher auch nicht!

Path1: renommierte Personen im Board und im Advisory-Board!
Geld von Leitch (mehrjährig) und von Barconet (Geld - als
Jyraaktionär hat man bisher so gut wie nichts von dem ge-
sehen)ausserdem eine kleine Akquisition und mehrere Präsent-
tationen, eine Order über USD 300` usw. jetzt ein anstehender
Nasdaq Gang usw.

Eine von den wenigen Dingen die bei Jyra was wert sind
ist die Beteiligung an Path1 und auch das einzige mit dem
sie bisher nenneswert Geld verdienten.

Checker,

Kurzinfo über mich: bin seit November 1996 in Jyra
investiert und habe Path 1 auch direkt am Tag nach
dem ersten Listing gekauft. In beiden Fällen erhielt ich
die Informationen zu den Unternehmen über LTR Consultancy,
die ja sowohl für Jyra als auch für Path 1 die ersten
private placements in Europa arrangierten.

Aus Path 1 bin ich vor ca. 1,5 Jahren ausgestiegen. Als sich
bereits damals auch bei Jyra abzeichnete, daß nicht alles
wie geplant abläuft, bin ich allgemein mit OTC-Werten
vorsichtiger geworden. Ich bin in Jyra dringeblieben, weil
das ganze Produkt bereits viel reifer als bei PNWK war und
ich der Meinung war, das die ersten Umsätze und somit die
Profitabilität näher seien.

Was die Kursentwicklung anging war dies ganz offensichtlich
die falsche Wahl. Allerdings waren bei Jyra die Erwartungen
auch viel höher aufgehängt. Daher auch der tiefere Fall.

Andererseits ist es Fakt, daß Jyra im Vergleich zu PNWK
tatsächlich das reifere Unternehmen ist. Man hat einfach
Zeit verloren, indem man auf die falsche Vermarktungsstrategie
setzte (Cisco war ein Griff ins Klo, Wiederverkauf über
big Telco ebenfalls). Mittlerweile verfolgt man die richtige
Strategie (Technologiepartnerschaften wie RiverSoft, Savvion;
desweiteren eigene sales force), hat allerdings gute 1,5
Jahre verloren.

Dennoch werden die Umsätze kommen. Würde man weiter auf dem
Niveau der Dorfmetzgerei bleiben, so wäre bestimmt kein
Joop van Kammen eingestiegen, der übrigens auch für Path 1
im Gespräch war. Auch ein Archie Adams als CEO hätte den
Laden bei mangelnder Perspektive eher verkauft oder
zugemacht. Wer ihn kennt, weiß daß er als früherer
Aktienhändler bei einer angesehenen Londonder Investmentbank
nur in Geschäfte investiert, die ihm profit bringen. Er
denkt da eigentlich vergleichsweise sachlich.

Also, nur weil die Jyra-Vorstände angeblich die Aktionäre
um ihr Geld "betrogen" haben, ist der Laden nicht gleich
schlecht. Das Management hat einfach eine Strategie verfolgt
die nicht aufging - das passiert im normalen Geschäftsleben
aber immer wieder (selbst in Großkonzernen). Ich sehe eher das
Problem, daß die Aktionäre teilweise sehr unreif waren, und
das Risiko einer solchen Anlage einfach nicht einschätzen
konnten.

Ich dagegen sehe es sehr positiv, daß das Management nach
dem Tiefschlag des vergangenen Jahres in einem so schlechten
Börsenumfeld den operativen turnaround im Unternehmen
geschafft hat und Jyra wieder erfolgreich im Markt plaziert
hat. Daß man dafür weniger von Jyra in der
Börsen-Öffentlichkeit gehört hat, liegt nur daran, daß das
Unternehmen kapiert hat, daß es nicht durch Versprechungen
gegenüber Investoren, sondern nur durch volle Konzentration
auf das eigene Geschäft besser wird.

Die Ergebnisse wird man meiner Meinung nach in bereits naher
Zukunft sehen. Ich betone, daß es sich um meine Meinung
handelt, d.h. diese basiert rein auf dem von mir selbst
getätigten Research. Was Informationen angeht vertraue ich
im übrigen nicht auf dubiose "zuverlässige" Quellen oder
Mittelsmänner, sondern kontaktiere von Zeit zu Zeit das
Management persönlich.

Wie ich auch betont hatte, sehe ich das Potential bei Jyra
auch durch das im Vergleich zu Path 1 absurd niedrige
Bewertungsniveau. 10 Mio. USD sind ein Scherz.

Allerdings weiß auch Jyra nur gut genug, daß sie die
Investoren nur durch harte Fakten wieder von der Aktie
überzeugen können. Und genau daran arbeiten sie.

Für weiterführende Informationen stehe ich gerne zur
Verfügung.

@Cenix

Als erstes möchte ich bemerken, dass es auch in meinem
Interesse liegen würde wenn uns eine Jyra wieder alte
Kurse bescheren würde.
Deine Informationen die Du aus dem Management beziehst
sind mittlerweile etwas werthaltiger als noch vor 6-
12 Monaten, denn auch da wurden bewusst oder unbewusst
falsche Details gestreut, die der Holländer auch nur
weitertrug (er ist halt stark optimistisch und etwas
vorschnell).
Das Produkt von Jyra halte ich unvermindert für sehr
gut (vom Ansatz her - ich habe es nie live gesehen und
auch noch kein Feedback von Firmen bekommen die die
Möglichkeit hatten dies zu testen). Der Markt für das
Produkt ist ebenfalls da, das sehen wir alle die uns
im Netz bewegen.
Das Jyra das ausgereiftere Produkt usw. hat wie PNWK
halte ich für ein Gerücht, wenn ich mir die Management-
besetzung bei PNWK anschaue und auch einen Herrn A.
Lipper im Advisory Board dazunehme muss ich sagen: die
Aussage ist falsch!
Zeit wurde nicht verloren sondern hochnässig verspielt.

Schauen wir einmal was Jyra in nächster Zeit vorführt
dann werden wir sehen.

Die bessere Hälfte

Schon einige Zeit hören wir von Volks-
wirten und Unternehmenslenkern welt-
weit,die zweite Jahreshälfte werde mit
Blick auf die Konjunktur erfreulicher als
die erste.Die Wirtschaft habe schon
bald die Delle überwunden und nehme
wieder Fahrt auf.Bisher ist allerdings
nur vage geklärt,worauf diese optimisti-
schen Annahmen basieren.
Die Argumente beschränken sich auf die
Zinssenkungen in den Vereinigten Staa-
ten und mögliche Steuersenkungen der
neuen Bush-Regierung.

Die Telekommunikation –eine der
Schlüsselbranchen der New Economy –
präsentiert einige harte Fakten zur
Untermauerung der These auf der CeBIT
2001
.Die Branchenvertreter kündigen
ebenfalls eine bessere zweite Hälfte an –
General-Packet-Radio-System (GPRS)sei
Dank.Dem neuen Standard werde mit
Beginn des Sommers der Durchbruch
gelingen,heißt es in den Messehallen.
T-Mobil,D2 Vodafone und Konkurrenten
haben die Netze schon aufgerüstet.

Nokia,Ericsson,Siemens und Co.bringen
in Kürze die passenden Handys auf den
Markt.Kooperationspartner steuern
Software und attraktive Anwendungen
bei.
Betriebssystem,Fotobearbeitung,
Lokalisierungsdienste,Börsenticker,
eMails und Spiele sollen dann die Kun-
den anlocken.Ergänzende Technologien
wie Bluetooth machen das mobile Inter-
net komfortabel.
Die Mobilfunker echnen mit mehreren
Millionen GPRS-Nutzern allein in
Deutschland bis Ende des Jahres.Diese
werden dann mit Webpad oder Handheld
durch das WorldWideWeb surfen,oder
mit dem Webradio durch virtuelle
Klangwelten rauschen.
Die Aussteller zeigen durchaus interes-
sante neue Produkte,die leicht zu
bedienen sind und Möglichkeiten bie-
ten,die Laune machen.Das lahme grau
in grau der WAP-Seiten ist nur noch ein
kleiner Ausschnitt des Angebots.
Die Telekom-Aktien profitieren von den
Vorführungen auf der CeBIT.Was jetzt
noch aussteht,ist der Beleg,dass mit
neuen Anwendungen auch neue Um-
sätze sprudeln.Ist der Musikfan bereit,
für die Anbindung des Webradios ans
Internet zu zahlen,nur um mehr Kanäle
zur Auswahl zu haben?Akzeptiert der
Telefonkunde eine deutlich höhere Mo-
natsrechnung wegen der neuen Dienste?
Falls ja,könnte auch die Diskussion um
UMTS eine Wende nehmen und die
Chancen in den Vordergrund rücken.
Falls nicht,werden die Geschäftsmodelle
der Telekomanbieter scheitern.Die zwei-
te Jahreshälfte wird die weitere
Richtung weisen.

In diesem Sinne viel Erfolg
Ihr
Daniel Evensen

P.S.:
klingelt`s ?
villeicht noch ein nachtrag: als letztes jahr wap bei der cebit vorgeführt wurde hat es nicht funktioniert, weil die netze zu überlastet waren. dieses jahr heißt die technik gprs, aber funktioniert hat sie ebenfalls mehr nach dem zufallsprinzip, da die netze - welch wunder - überlastet waren.
sollte gprs etwa abermals am gleichen problem scheitern ? dann können sie umts gleich einstampfen, denn bis dahin sind die netze immer noch überlastet.
das datenvolumen im internet verdoppelt sich im moment alle 3-4 monate !

zur Erinnerung:

"Bekanntlich hat Jyra seinen Fokus auf Service Provider und
Telekommunikationsunternehmen gerichtet. In diesem Zusammen-
hang bitte ich die Aufmerksamkeit insbesondere auf Jyra`s
Press Release vom 21.03.00 ("Jyra Goes Mobile") zu richten.
Darin verkündet Jyra, daß man in der Lage ist mobile Netze
unter dem GPRS-Standard zu überwachen.
Bekanntlich ist VIAG
Interkom gerade dabei, als erster Anbieter in Deutschland
GPRS einzuführen, um dem mobilen Internet zum Durchbruch zu
verhelfen. Weder Micromuse, noch Riversoft, noch Keynote
sind derzeit in der Lage mobile Netze zu monitoren.

Danke für die Erinnerung!

Noch ein Gedanke: VIAG Interkom gehört übrigens mittlerweile
zu einem britischen Telekommunikationskonzern. Vielleicht
erhöht das ja die Chancen von Jyra mit dieser Adresse ins
Geschäft zu kommen. Die Briten sind ja zuweilen ziemlich
eigenartig und machen am liebsten mit ihresgleichen
Geschäfte.

Die bids/asks ziehen haben heute bereits vorbörslich
angezogen, obwohl keine konkrete News vorlagen. Irgend-
jemand versucht eine größere Tranche zu kaufen. Warum?

Schon "interessant", was sich da so einige einfallen lassen:
mal eben eine ID zum Posten geholt (somesa 29.03.01 23:03:02 )und dann ein "Techie-Geschwafel" hingeworfen, ohne Angaben von Quellen. Na ja versteh ja eh keiner, aber (angeblich) er selbst:
"Seriös" b.z.w. ernsthaft wäre es ja, sich mal hier auf dem registrierten Board einzufinden und wirklich sachlich zu diskutieren. Aber, dass kennen wir ja zur Genüge vom Path1 wallstreet- und den P1- und Jyra- us-ragingbull- boards: Eintagsfliegen IDs, so schnell sie kommen so gingen sie auch eben wieder b.z.w. "es ward nie wieder was von ihnen gehört".
Schaut man sich das Path1 board "von außen betrachtet" mit einem klaren Kopf an, bleibt einem bezüglich der angebl. sachlichen "Diskussion und Info" nur staunendes b.z.w. ungläubiges Kopfschütteln.
Vom Blickpunkt einer psychologischen Betrachtungsweise her äußerst interessant und "lehrreich" mit welchen "Spielen" (der Erwachsenen) hier nur so um sich geworfen wird. Ein Spiel lautet: "alles Mist was Du sagst, ich aber weiß es (besser) genauso wie mein Kumpel X, nur wir sagen es Euch nicht, weil Ihr es nicht wert seid".
MEIN GOTT WALTER! bitte schauen Sie sich diese Boards an, hier können Sie echte Feldstudien betreiben, wie es geht, eben das . . . wie man sich belügt, gegenseitig verklappst und betrügt. (Ich weiß schon, Jungs, hinter der Taxoseite, wo nach Kräften Path1 und Jyra auf Teufel komm raus gepushed wurde, stehen (standen) einige "unserer Landsleute" - sind ja nicht nur die dutchs an allen dran allein beteiligt, die connection macht`s auch; Motto: im Verbund läßt sich besser (ab)zocken).
Auch interessant wie da mal so eben "zufällig" einige "alte Boardkollegen" auftauchen oder sind es nur die anderen IDs, die aus den Schubladen geholt werden . . . zur Show einer Scheindiskussion (mit sich selbst)?
Da bin aber mal sehr gespannt wie sich "dort drüben" die "sachliche Diskussion" über die Technik von Jyras SMA entwickeln wird, oder sollte ich tatsächlich unverhofft überrascht werden, dass man sich hier auf dem Board der vollregistrierten Teilnehmer von Wallstreet-online einfinden wird?

Bitte meinen Herren leisten Sie uns "Mutigen"("vollregistrierte User" )hier doch mal Gesellschaft!
Ich bin schon ganz "Ohr" mal mit Ihnen über die "7 layers" speziell über "layer 2" u. "layer3" als auch über GPRS zu diskutieren.
Ist nun Keynote ein b.z.w. der entscheidenen Konkurrent oder eher Mercury oder . . .?
Wie interpretieren Sie den Kursverfall von KEYN auf nun knapp über 10$ !!? (nach dem alltime high von 177 $!!), wo doch KEYN 1300 Kunden hat und dazu noch soooo viele bekannte Namen wie Microsoft, Cisco und all die anderen Giganten!
Wie sehen Sie die Stellung von Micromuse zu Jyra besonders in dem Zusammenhang, dass sich Cisco letztendlich nicht für Muse entschieden hat sondern für Riversoft ( "RIVERSOFT ANNOUNCES OEM AGREEMENT WITH CISCO FOR 2.5G AND 3G MOBILE WIRELESS MANAGEMENT " ), damit für Riversofts "bundle of solutions" ("Cisco to integrate RiverSoft`s Fault Manager software into future mobile wireless management solutions "), das Jyras SMA beinhaltet.
Ist der Kurseinbruch von Muse um 50 % (nach dem letzten Split) auf diese Entscheidung und andere "Signale" zurückzuführen oder hat es allein etwas mit der "allgemeinen schlechten Lage des gesamten Technologiemarktes" zu tun ?
Wie sehen Sie die Situation, dass angesichts der Tatsache, dass die Mobilfunkbranche - gerade jetzt nach Einschätzungen in Folge der CEBIT - mit dem entwickelten und zu integrierenden Stardard GPRS, speziell die "großen Serviceprovider", die Mobilfunk- Service angebieten, jetzt (ver)besser(t)e Softwarelösungen und besseren Service für ihre (zukünftigen) Kunden anbieten müssen(!), wozu auch zur Vermeidung von längeren Wartezeiten b.z.w. Datenstaus in den viel gepriesenen UMTS Netzen auch das "montitoring" gehört!
Wie sehen Sie die Tatsache, dass im GPRS Bereich Jyras Produkt dazu in der Lage ist, aber nicht Keynote als auch Micromuse(`s allience) !!?

Bezüglich den oben angeführten Diskussionspunken dazu noch ein Hinweis auf eine Pressemitteilung.
Ich schlage vor, sie genauestens zu lesen, um anschliessend darüber b.z.w. über die möglichen erheblichen Folgen auf den hier angesprochenen gesamten Telekommmunikationssektors besonders des Mobilfunksektors zu diskutieren. Dies in ganz besonderer Hinsicht in Zusammenhang zu Jyra!

TELECOMMUNICATIONS
CeBIT buys brief reprieve for telecoms sector
By Tony Glover
Tue 27 Mar 2001

LONDON (SHARECAST) - General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) has finally arrived - or has it?
That is the problem telecoms analysts attending CeBIT, the world`s largest technology
show that is held in Germany each year, will ponder as they queue for their flights home
from Hanover airport this evening.


A couple of weeks ago, operators such as BT and Vodafone
complained that it was a lack of GPRS handsets that was
delaying the long-awaited arrival of GPRS`s "always-on"
high-speed internet links for mobile phones. Everyone at
CeBIT is now convinced that handset availability is no
longer an issue.

Manufacturers including Nokia, Ericsson, Samsung, Siemens
and Motorola showed sleek new GPRS handsets. Motorola
unveiled a range of GPRS handsets designed for each of the
five main user groups and says it will include GPRS capability
as a standard feature in all its phones.

But with handsets available there are two additional
questions. The first concerns the state of the GPRS
networks. At the moment the main UK operators appear to
contradict themselves by saying that the networks are up
and running but adding that they are still being tested.
However, as GPRS only involves a software upgrade to
existing cellular networks base stations, these teething
troubles should soon be over with.

. . .
. . .

Bezüglich der Aussagen des "Experten" auf dem anderen Jyraboard möchte ich die Meinung von jemanden hier wiedergeben, die ich heute per Email erhalten habe:


"Und was Jyra als seriöser Verhandlungspartner angeht: Warum wird Jyra von Cisco akzeptiert, warum von RiverSoft, von Yipes, von Vanco, von BAA, von Siemens, von Tele Danmark, von Orange,....? Bestimmt nicht weil die Firmen so klein sind und es nicht besser wissen. Zur erwähnten HP Openview-Gemeinde zählt übrigens auch RiverSoft. Und die haben Jyra im Gepäck. Also wo liegt das Problem? Ich sehe es jedenfalls nicht."

Also,
auch hierüber können wir auch auch mal dikutieren!

Wir freuen uns schon auf eine lebhaften und sachliche Diskussion mit Ihnen hier. Auf denn!

P.S.:
Meiner Einschätzung und Information nach können wir die Quartalszahlen ab Montagnachmittag erwarten.
Ich erwarte von den Zahlen als auch von einer event. (wie gehabt) seperaten Pressemitteilung zu den "Aussichten für die weitere Zukunft" nichts Umwerfendes.
Sollte allerdings demnächst die Pressemitteilung kommen, die den Abschluß mit einem - meiner "Vermutung" nach - sehr bedeutenden Telekommunikations- und (Mobilfunk-)Serviceproviders beinhaltet, dann
wird es einen riesengroßen Knall geben und "einiges - auch bei den "Experten" -zu Staub zerfallen" . . .
Um wen es sich dabei handeln könnte ist nicht ungemein schwer einzuschätzen,
man braucht nur den "gemeinsamen Nenner" nehmen, der in vielen der hier auf dem Board geposteten Pressemitteilungen der verschiedenen companies enthalten ist! Stichwort: GPRS
was mir im moment jedoch ganz und gar nicht gefällt ist, daß jyra es nicht geschafft hat, bis ende märz ihren jahresabschluß / ihr quartalergebnis zu veröffentlichen. mal sehen, ob dies vor börseneröffnung heute passiert.
viele grüße
gourmet
Das filing kommt heute und es gibt Gründe, warum es erst
heute kommt (ist übrigens immer noch in der offiziellen
Frist - man muß nach Handelsschluß des letzten Handelstages
veröffentlichen, und das ist nach SEC-Regeln vor Beginn
des nächsten Handelstages).

Cenix
das filing ist da:
- 258.000 revenue in q4
- eine menge shares zu 0.75 verkauft
- kleinere position in path 1 verkauft
- prognose 2001 - na ja
aber am besten ihr lest es euch selbst durch (ich habe es selbst erst überflogen)
"During the first quarter of 2001 the new sales team and strategy has provided
the strongest quarter in the company`s history. Average order value and the
quality of customers have both strengthened, with the result that management
are looking forward to continued exciting sales activity during the remainder
of 2001."
tja, das glas ist halb voll oder halb leer (je nach sichtweise). klar positiv die entwicklung (yipes und baa). q1 wird > 430.000 $ sein und das ist ja auch schon mal was.
problem ist (und das ist nicht einmal so jyra-spezifisch, sondern betrifft fast den kompletten tech-sektor), daß auch im jahr 2001 nur schwer die gewinnzone zu erreichen sein wird und weiterhin geld benötigt wird. und da schmerzt es schon, wenn jyra shares zu schleuderpreisen oder teile des notgroschens (path1) verkaufen muß.
alles in allem stehe ich jyra positiv entgegen, sehe jedoch einen steinigen weg in 2001 der sich nur durch weitere großkunden (und darauf hoffen wir ja alle) glätten läßt.
viele grüße
gourmet
gourmet,

Ich denke auch, daß wir jetzt genau in der gleichen Situation
wie vor exakt einem Jahr sind: erstes Quartal auf Rekord-Niveau
und was nun? Ich denke es liegt ganz allein an Jyra und ich
bin beruhigt, daß das erste Quartal trotz der schlechten Stimmung
an den Börsen und der negativen Konjunkturaussichten so gut
lief. Während andere Unternehmen im 2-Wochentakt Gewinnwarnungen
vorlegen, ist es sehr positiv zu werten, daß Jyra sich hiervon
nicht betroffen sieht und die Aussichten für 2001 sehr gut sind.

Wir kommen jetzt wohl wieder in eine typische Situation: Bei
schlechter Konjunktur laufen die kleinen Nebenwerte deutlich
besser als die bekannten Standardwerte, da die Kleinen eine
wesentliche niedrigere Ausgangsbasis haben und somit leichter
Wachstum erreichen können, während die Großen es schwer haben
ihre Marktanteile zu verteidigen.

Warten wir auf die nächsten Meldungen und auf Rienk Kamer`s Meinung.
Die angelaufenen Marketing-Maßnahmen und die geplante weitere
Verstärkung des Sales-Teams sind allesamt positiv zu bewerten.
Und Jyra weiß genau wie es vor exakt einem Jahr war: Ich denke
daß Archie Adams sich nicht noch einmal die Blöße gibt und
nach einem Rekordquartal im positiven Sinne ein Rekordquartal im
negativen Sinne hinlegt.

Daß Path 1-Anteile verscherbelt werden ist zwar für PNWK-Aktionäre
nicht so toll, für Jyra aber um so besser. So ist man zumindest
ein gutes Jahr auch ohne Kapitalmarktzugang liquiditätsmäßig
abgesichert. Zwar verliert man das Potential aus Kursgewinnen,
doch darauf basiert das Unternehmen ja ohnehin nicht.

Da keine negativen, sondern nur positive News im 10-K waren,
gehe ich davon aus, daß der Kurs zunächst nach unten abgesichert
ist. Was nach oben kommt liegt jetzt in der Macht von Jyra.

Ich bin bereit.

Cenix
@cenix: was das ergenis und die q1-prognose anbelangt stehen wir (denke ich) sogar besser da. das q1-ergebnis in 2000 war mehr das resultat eines überhangs aus dem (ganz üblen q4 1999) und davon gehe ich dieses quartal (gefühlmäßig) nicht aus.
und was die vorzüge der kleinen gegenüber den großen anbelangt stimme ich die voll zu (sofern sie das produkt zum überleben haben). ich denke ariba, brokat etc. müssen sich um moment mehr sorgen um das überleben in 2001 machen wie jyra, denn da geht es nicht um ein paar milliönchen finanzierungsbedarf. dennoch darf es keinen rückfall (schlechte ergebnisse) bei jyra geben.
viele grüße
gourmet
@gourmet

Was künftige Ergebnisse angeht, stimme ich Dir ebenfalls
voll zu. Jyra muß jetzt schon eine Serie von guten Quartalen
hinlegen. Enttäuschungen haben wir schon zu viele erlebt und
Jyra ist letztlich keine Katze mit sieben Leben.

Entweder die Jungs packen es jetzt oder sie können den Laden
verkaufen. Ich tendiere zu ersterem.

Heute (Dienstag) Nachmittag kam der neue Kamer Börsenbrief herraus; falls es sich noch nicht herumgesprochen hat: Kamer und seine Investorengruppe halten einen erheblichen Teil (!) von Jyra (u. Path1) Aktien, da "schippern wir deutschen Kleinanleger" sozusagen in "Nußschalen" zwischen "Ozeanriesen" zwischen rum, wenn Kamer mal zum "sell" blasen würde dann gute Nacht b.z.w. ca o,1 $,
hat er aber nicht!
er sieht Jyra sehr positiv, kommt sicher nicht von ungefähr, er kriegt bestimmt so seine Infos ;) was läuft b.z.w. laufen wird - man`s kann`s auch umgekehrt sehen, Jyra hängt ja auch "irgendwie" am Tropf der holländischen Investoren . . .
Anbei die Übersetzung meiner connection vom Holländischen ins Englischen mit Bitte um Nachsicht bei nicht 100%igem Englisch:

"After a detailed conversation with the new CEO Archie Adams my conclusion is that the company has found his way up; a movement upon which we have waited in the past months with extreme patience and at the end the deliverance of ultimatums.
Whilst the now reported results from last year of course are of little importance (we knew that things were going bad), we can put the case that the first quarter of this year is financially the most succesfull of the Jyra-history.
A handicap of thorough conversations with the management of an official on the Stock-Exchange listed company is that I may not publish a big number of details before the company herself has made those details public towards the Stoch-Exchange and the stockholders.
None the less we can conclude from the qualification about last quarter that sales must be more than half a million dollar and (a) big prospect(s) must have been brought in.
Awaiting the consent from the involved parties (in case of bigger companies sometimes a long lasting process) Jyra expects to make some announcements in the coming weeks about some important orders from important (I mean prestigious) prospects, which at this moment are final.
Farther a cooperation has been agreed with some big distribution-companies (one of them is listed on the Stock-Exchange). Previous mentioned "Arbeitsgeschafte" don`t mean much anymore, except for these with Riversoft and Yipes.
The new sales-force therefore is at work and has made - after warming up the last months - some good deals. Also in relation to some important "follow through order". At Jyra one is working on a qualitative expansion of the sales-force."

Nokia closes EUR 1.5 billion 3G deal with Orange – provides UMTS networks to Orange, France Telecom Group, in France,
the UK and Germany


(April 03, 2001) Reinforces Nokia`s 3G leadership position

Orange, one of the world’s largest mobile operators, owned by France Telecom, has selected Nokia as the major supplier of its advanced 3G networks for Itineris in France and Orange in the UK. At the same time, the 28% Orange-owned MobilCom has chosen Nokia as a supplier for its 3G network in Germany.

The companies have signed Letter of Intent agreements, with a total estimated value of € 1.5 billion. These groundbreaking agreements further strengthen Nokia`s position as a leading global 3G system supplier.
. . .
"Orange is a pacesetter in the telecommunications industry and we have already taken the lead in the development of the mobile Internet market in Europe.
. . .

Notes to Editors:
3G is also known in Europe as UMTS: Universal Mobile Telecommunications System. 3G is the future of mobile communications and in Nokia`s vision, IP-based technologies will eventually form the core of the future mobile network. Nokia`s GSM/UMTS system will gradually evolve to an all-IP system, having 3G GPRSnetwork elements as its base.

The 3G system will complement the existing GSM system, not replace it. It will be the vehicle that provides wireless access to multimedia services, and a way to provide more voice capacity, or a mixture of voice and multimedia services.

P.S.:
Orange?, war da nicht mal was . . .?
Nochmal ein paar abschließende Statements zum 10-K:

Die Informationen über das Geschäftsjahr 2000 sind
uninteressant, da im wesentlichen bereits bekannt.

Das 1. Quartal 2001 lag also auf jeden Fall über USD 435.000
Umsatz. Das ist m.E. sehr gut, wenn man bedenkt, daß alleine
4 der 11 Sales-Leute fast das ganze Quartal nur an einem
einzigen Kunden dran war. Dieser Auftrag soll wohl bereits
in trockenen Tüchern sein. Offen bleibt, ob Teile des Auftrags
bereits im 1. Quartal verbucht wurden und wie weit man den
Umsatz aus dem 1. Quartal 2000 übertroffen hat. Sollte
der große Auftrag noch nicht im 1. Quartal berücksichtigt
sein, wäre das positiv. Man hätte ein Rekordquartal mit
anderen Kunden hingelegt und einen Großauftrag als Polster
für die nächsten Quartale in der Tasche. Das gäbe
Kalkulationssicherheit.

Sehr gut auch, daß rd. USD 350.000 Umsatz alleine in den USA
gemacht wurden. Yipes scheint hier wirklich gut einzuschlagen.
Über Folgeaufträge (repeat business) kann man sich hier gut
etablieren.

Positiv ist, daß im März mit einer größeren
Marketing-Kampagne begonnen wurde. Sowohl mittels
Telefonmarketing als auch Direktmarketing werden Unternehmen
angesprochen; daneben wird ein offizielles Partner-Programm
für die channel sales aufgebaut.

Den Hinweis, daß man den Vertrieb weiter deutlich aufstocken
will und daß die Vertriebsaktivitäten noch in den Kinderschuhen
stecken, werte ich positiv. Es ist noch einiges zu erwarten
(muß auch). Ohne Zahlen zu nennen, hat man ja die Erwartungen
für 2001 hoch gesteckt.

Positiv ist auch, daß Joop van Kammen 45.000 Aktien über
Optionen beziehen kann. Meines Ermessens müsste man ihn noch
stärker über Anteile an das Unternehmen binden.

Der Verkauf von Path 1-Anteilen ist schlecht für
PNWK-Aktionäre (sorry), zeigt aber, daß Archie keine Lust
hat Aktien zu 0,75 USD zu verkaufen. Der Druck auf ihm, den
Aktienkurs auf ein erträgliches Niveau zu bringen wird
dadurch höher, denn Geld von außen wird Jyra auch trotz
steigender Umsätze brauchen. Dennoch ist über die
PNWK-Anteile sichergestellt, daß Jyra mindestens 1 Jahr
auch ohne weitere private placements weitermachen kann.

Alles in allem läßt sich festhalten: Wir sind genau in der
gleichen Situation wie vor einem Jahr. Sehr gutes erstes
Quartal, das zumindest einen Anfang darstellt. Allerdings
müssen die Zahlen jetzt von Quartal zu Quartal
weitergesteigert werden. Daß Jyra in der Lage ist ein gutes
Quartal hinzulegen, hat man auch bereits vorher gewußt.
Spätestens wenn sich abzeichnet, daß das 2. Quartal genauso
gut oder besser als das erste wird, werden die Leute wieder
auf den Zug aufspringen. Eine PR zu dem in Rede stehenden
Großauftrag könnte der erste Schritt in diese Richtung sein.

( BW)(CA-VIAWEST/RIVERSOFT)(RSFT.L) ViaWest Boosts Network Reliability with RiverSoft`s Network Management Technology; ISP Implements RiverSoft to Enhance Network Availability and Customer Service



Business Editors

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 4, 2001--RiverSoft (LSE: RSFT.L), a leading provider of Internet Protocol (IP) network management solutions, and ViaWest Internet Services Inc., a Denver-based Internet communications and data center technology
provider, today announced that ViaWest has deployed RiverSoft network management tools to map, monitor and manage its regional backbone network.
ViaWest implemented RiverSoft`s technology to enhance their network`s reliability and availability through RiverSoft`s network monitoring, issue notification and problem pinpointing tools.
"As an Internet communications provider, our network is our business. Any network downtime affects us and our customers dramatically," said Roy Dimoff, president and CEO of ViaWest. "RiverSoft management tools have increased our network efficiency. Their 24 X 7 network monitoring and updating has helped us achieve our goals of constant connectivity and superior service."
RiverSoft solutions help ViaWest reduce network maintenance and troubleshooting costs by simplifying management tasks and ensuring the company can continue to deliver high network availability and high service levels. RiverSoft products automatically identify and isolate
network problems, enabling ViaWest to quickly respond to market demands. This is important for ViaWest not only because the company faces rapidly increasing demands for bandwidth and connectivity from technology-dependent customers but also because ViaWest`s network is becoming more complex and larger over time.
"RiverSoft`s selection by ViaWest clearly states the value RiverSoft delivers to service providers seeking state-of-the-art solutions that increases both network availability and IT staff productivity," said Gary Read, vice president of marketing, RiverSoft. "RiverSoft solutions will allow ViaWest to secure and expand their market position by delivering a product that minimizes network failures, assuring maximum network availability."

Profit Partner

According to a recent study by Cahners In-Stat, the number of service providers will rise from 5,775 in 1999 to 14,250 in 2004. As competition grows, RiverSoft will prove to be an ideal partner for service-minded companies like ViaWest that must maintain competitive advantage in terms of customer service levels and network availability. RiverSoft`s cost-efficient and reliable network management solution accommodates the rapid growth and network evolution associated with service providers, allowing them to concentrate on their core competencies and maintain a competitive position in this rapidly growing market.

<PAGE>
WE FACE GROWING GLOBAL COMPETITION WHICH COULD MAKE IT DIFFICULT FOR US TO ACQUIRE AND RETAIN CUSTOMERS.

The market for Internet performance measurement and diagnostic services is new and rapidly evolving. The global nature of the Internet makes it easier for existing and new competitors to become visible to our customers and prospects.
We expect competition in this market to intensify in the future. Our competitors vary in size and in the scope and breadth of the products and services that they offer. Our primary business is the supply of enterprise-scale solutions to corporates and to network operators. Our primary competitors are the Netcare division of Lucent (previously known as INS InSoft), and Hewlett-Packard. Other competitors include Computer Associates, BMC, Compuware, Concord, Keynote, and Micromuse. The company also may experience competition from niche suppliers such as Freshwater, NetScout, NetIQ, Inverse Network Technology, Mercury Interactive, and Segue Software.

Some of our competitors have, and our future competitors may have:

longer operating histories;
larger customer bases;
greater brand recognition in similar businesses; and
significantly greater financial, marketing, technical and other
resources.


In addition, some of our competitors may be able to:

devote greater resources to marketing and promotional campaigns;
adopt more aggressive pricing policies; and
devote more resources to technology and systems development.

For our service provider hosted on-line web monitoring service business, we compete against a wide range of consultancy and service offerings, including WebCriteria, KeyNote, MIDS MatrixIQ Service and free services such as the Web Site Garage unit of Netscape, NetMechanic and Internet Weather Report. While the services may not be as comprehensive or complete as ours, and they may have less flexibility in reporting than we do, customers could still choose to use these services.

We also suffer indirect competition from increased competition and investment in network capacity. Customers may choose to spend more on additional capacity rather than better management of the existing capacity.

We suffer indirect competition from suppliers that offer to control or shape the network traffic on all or part of the network.(b] Customers may choose to believe that expenditure solely on control rather than independent measurement is an adequate solution.[/b]

Keynote warns on earnings, sets staff cuts

(UPDATE: Recasts, adds comments from company, changes dateline pvs San Mateo)

By Andrea Orr

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 3 (Reuters) - Keynote Systems Inc.(NasdaqNM:KEYN - news), which monitors Web sites` performance and enjoyed a burst of demand during the Internet heyday, warned on Tuesday it would report lower-than-expected second-quarter earnings and would cut 13 percent of its work force.
The San Mateo, Calif. company said results had suffered partly because of its high-exposure to dot-com companies, many which have gone out of business or slashed discretionary spending.
It said it expects to report second-quarter pro forma net income of $1.6 million to $1.9 million or 6 cents to 7 cents per diluted share, which would below than the consensus analyst estimate of 9 cents per share. It expects second-quarter revenue between $12 million and $12.2 million, slightly below the $12.4 million to $12.6 million previously forecast.
The company is also planning to take a charge of about $300,000 in its June quarter, related to severance costs.
Excluding the charge, the company said it expected to break even in the third quarter on revenues of $11 million to $11.5 million.
In a conference call with analysts on Tuesday, Keynote said it was seeing a decline in revenue from the dot-com sector, which at one point had represented 35 percent of its revenue base. The company said that portion had shrunk to 26 percent and may have to be reduced further.
Keynote maintains offices in 120 locations around the world, at which it regularly logs onto different Web sites and times how long it takes to get onto different pages. It also alerts companies about performance problems in remote regions, and produces data that is widely watched on major news days that produce a crush of Web traffic..
During the conference call, Chairman and Chief Executive Umang Gupta said Keynote say little competition from other monitoring companies and continued to get strong feedback about its services. But he said the company might have to switch from a flat-fee billing model to one that would charge customers based on how often they used the service.
``The question is, are there ways we can change our pricing that are not onerous to our customers, that will not actually turn people off,`` Gupta said.
Keynote stock, which once topped $162 a share, closed trading Tuesday down 7/16 to 10-3/4 and were quoted around $9-1/5 in after-hours trade, following the release of the earnings warning.


Top: 162 us$ !, aber den Mund voll nehmen:
"Keynote say little competition from other monitoring companies."

Keynote Systems, Inc.
NASDAQ: KEYN $10.75
Long-Term Attractive
F2001E EPS: $0.19, down from $0.41

Richard Juarez, eCommerce Infrastructure Services
“Keynote Systems announced that its FY 2Q01 results will fall short of expectations,” said Juarez. “The company also lowered its outlook for FY 3Q01. The company plans to reduce headcount by approximately 13% or 36 staff. The move is anticipated to provide annual run rate savings of approximately 10% to 12% on operating expenses, or $4.0 million to $4.5 million. Keynote will take a one-time charge of approximately $300,000 in FY3Q01 (June) to cover severance costs. We believe that the company will likely experience reduced demand for its services over the next several quarters as dotcoms continue to evaporate and enterprises rein in expenses and cut expenditures on URL measurement. FY 2Q01 revenue from dotcoms and ISPs is estimated at 26% of total revenue, down from 35% in FY 1Q01. We believe and the company confirmed that it expects continued customer and revenues losses from dotcoms. We are reducing our FY01 revenue estimate from $51.7 million to $47.4 million, and lowering our FY01 EPS estimate from $0.41 to $0.19. We believe that over the next two quarters the company will consume approximately $10 million to $13 million of its current cash balance of approximately $342.0 million. We believe the company’s cash is sufficient to enable them to reach operating profit in approximately FY 2Q03, two quarters later than our previous estimate. We are maintaining our Long-Term Attractive rating based upon the company’s net cash position of an estimated $11.80 per share at March 31st, 2001. To gain back investors’ attention and support, we believe that Keynote must 1) reverse the declines in customers, URLs measured, and revenue/URL, 2) pull forward operational profitability via more effective expense management, and 3) leverage and deploy its cash reserves more effectively.”


Sicher, KEYN ist in der Hinsicht (was deren bereits enormen Umsätze anbelangt) nicht zu vergleichen,
aber KEYN muß seine Gewinnerwartungen (auch auf Grund, dass etliche der dotcoms mit "Muttertags"webseiten Messung einfach pleite sind) zurückschrauben,
Jyra steht am Anfang,
in der Erwartung, dass es nun entgültig - erstmal - einige Quartale nur aufwärts geht!

Jyra`s Mobile Service Management Solution (SMS Mobile) Wins Corporate Licence Contract at BT Cellnet

BT Cellnet selects Jyra`s Mobile Service Management Solution (SMS Mobile) as the Monitoring Solution for its Service Management Program


London, UK - 3rd May 2001: Jyra (OTCBB: JYRA): a leading provider of performance management solutions today announces its Mobile Service Management Solution (SMS Mobile) has been chosen as the Service performance and availability monitor for BT Cellnet.
Jyra is now being developed as an integral part of the wireless GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) services offered by BT Cellnet.

Jyra SMS Mobile was selected because of its ability to measure the performance of mobile services from end-to-end and provide accurate reporting and real-time monitoring. Jyra SMS Mobile proved to be an effective solution in the mobile performance monitoring space, able to measure the performance of WAP and other advanced data services.

Incorporating Jyra`s SMS Mobile technology into its Service Management Program is assisting BT Cellnet in assuring higher quality data applications for it`s customers. The BT Cellnet Service Management Program is an initiative for advanced monitoring and management of converged wireless services. This is enabling BT Cellnet to offer a higher service quality to it`s customers when using both existing and future services.

Innovation and industry leading services means that over 11.2 million people are now using BT Cellnet to stay in touch. The BT Cellnet network handles over 30 million calls a day and covers 99% of the UK population.

BT Cellnet is forging the way ahead for GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) and 3rd generation services; it was the first to bring the mobile internet to customers and to make the first GPRS data transfer call over a live GSM network. BT Cellnet is excited about the power of GPRS. It is a big technological leap in the delivery of a new generation of mobile Internet applications such as news, share prices and full email and electronic diary access and paves the way for 3G services.

"We are delighted to be a supplier and to have formed a distinctive commercial relationship with BT Cellnet, especially at a stage in the market place when Mobile Internet is becoming a reality for corporate users". Mr Peter Lynch continued: " BT Cellnet and Jyra are demonstrating a commitment to work together to deliver superior GPRS and Mobile data and Internet solutions in a number of market sectors".

und der Kurs reagiert überhaupt nicht, obwohl der Deal durchaus endlich mal ordentliche Umsätze versprechen könnte.
Aber wieso sollte er auch sprunghaft nach oben gehen? Erstens ist es wieder eine der Jyra-typischen PRs aus denen wieder einmal gar nicht hervorgeht, wieviel Umsätze damit gemacht werden und zweitens kennt der leidgeplagte Jyraaktionär solche PRs ja (leider) zu Genüge: MCI, Cisco, PSINet etc. . . . haben (so gut wie) keine Umsätze gebracht.
Warum sollte der Aktionär glauben, daß es jetzt endlich die erhofften Umsätze bringt?

Dazu sei noch gesagt, dass man die ganze G3 b.z.w. UMTS Story für nicht risikolos halten sollte:
Die großen Telcos, die sich durch die Erwerbung der Linzenzen hoch verschuldet haben (France Telecom mit ca 72 Mill. € an der Spitze der Verschuldeten!) gehen ein hohes Risiko ein, die Banken sind nicht mehr bereit ihnen weitere Kredite zu gewähren, doch Firmen wie Nokia und Ericson sind bereit ihnen mit Kredite zu helfen, damit sie in der Lage sind ihre Netze weiter auf den neuen Standard (G3 u. UMTS) auszubauen - natürlich, weil sie ja auch ihr Produkt des neuen UMTS-Handys verkaufen wollen. Damit begeben sich selbst diese großen Telcos in das Risiko selbst Übernahmekandidaten zu werden!

has resisted going to Nortel for vendor financing. But as the costs of rolling out 3G
escalate and BT finds it has to pay at least as much again to build its 3G as it did to buy
the licences (£10bn), it may find it hard to raise the cash. Given BT’s imminent debt level of
£32bn and the banks’ reluctance to lend more money to operators to spend on 3G,
vendor financing may be its only option."

TELECOM REPORT

Being first isn`t always being best
High-tech pioneers tend to experience high casualty rate


By Jeffry Bartash, CBS.MarketWatch.com
Last Update: 4:54 PM ET May 1, 2001

WASHINGTON (CBS.MW) - The race, it seems, isn`t always to the swift. One look at the turmoil in the Internet and telecommunications industries ought to make that clear.

These days, it`s hard to avoid stepping on the bodies of the dead, dying and severely wounded on the high-tech battlefield, littered as it is with failed startups and onetime high-flyers. NorthPoint Communications, Winstar Communications, ICG Communications, PSINet (PSIX: news, msgs, alerts) , Teligent (TGNT: news, msgs, alerts) , Pets.com, eToys. The list goes on and on.

What all these companies had in common was the hell-bent desire to be the first to their markets, all of which were new and largely untested. The companies were certain their businesses held a large reservoir of untapped potential. All they had to do was draw it out.

In a rush to be first, many of these companies raised and spent huge sums on money to lure talented workers, build infrastructure and distribution channels, and market their services to customers. The old method of building a business slowly, one market at a time, matching costs to revenue, was tossed aside.

Many high-tech executives, in short, paid enormous sums up front, all for an uncertain reward to be reeled in years later. Naturally, when those rewards failed to materialize as quickly as finicky investors had hoped, they bailed out. Take a big balloon, blow it up and let it go - and you get a picture of what happened to many "New Economy" stocks.

The lesson: Being first isn`t always best.

Tortoise and hare

The mantra of being first to the market is an old one, but it always finds new life even though it seldom guarantees success (Just look at AT&T (T: news, msgs, alerts) ).

Most recently, the wireless sector had been caught up in a race to see which companies would be the first to roll out high-speed Internet service, the so-called Third Generation of wireless communications.

In Europe, companies last year spent an unfathomable $115 billion to buy wireless licenses in government auctions. Now those very same companies, such as Continental giants British Telecom (BTY: news, msgs, alerts) and Deutsche Telekom (DT: news, msgs, alerts) , are struggling like Atlas under the weight of enormous debt.


At the time of the auctions, the exorbitant prices almost made sense. After all, market research
firms were predicting tens of billions in wireless Internet revenue within a few years, and here was a chance for European companies to seize control of a market in which the U.S. lagged behind. Call it the "build it and they will come" strategy.

As it turns out, 3G technology was not quite ready for prime time, market research firms are now scaling back their predictions and companies have little idea as to how they will generate the revenue to offset the billions of dollars required to build out their high-speed wireless networks.

Just last week, a debt-saddled British Telecom basically begged the British government to return some of the money it shelled out for U.K. licenses (it spent nearly $15 billion in U.K. and German auctions combined).

The British government said no, but Reed Hundt, the former chairman of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission, believes European governments will ultimately have no choice but to bail out carriers that overspent.

"Nothing was more obviously stupid than the prices paid for 3G licenses in Europe," he said at a conference in Washington recently.


In the U.S., meanwhile, carriers that were once seen as falling behind in the wireless Internet race are now credited with resisting the urge to splurge. American companies, perhaps unwittingly, let European carriers take the point - and bear the brunt of the damage.

U.S. carriers can now learn from the mistakes of their overseas rivals and chart a more profitable, and less dangerous, course. There`ll be plenty of time to catch up.

Worthwhile wait

There`s the second lesson. Sometimes it pays to wait.

While a slew and old companies alike were rushing to embrace the Web, a few older blue chips such as General Electric, Home Depot (HD: news, msgs, alerts) , BellSouth (BLS: news, msgs, alerts) and Wal-Mart (WMT: news, msgs, alerts) were slow to hop aboard the Internet gravy train. Without a clear idea of how they were going to generate revenue, these companies reasoned, it made no sense to plunk down gobs of money on a newfangled business.

Once they figured out how to use the Web, they did so with a vengeance. GE Chief Executive Jack Welch, for example, has said the company is now using the Internet to shave billions off costs and generate billions in new revenue.

That`s probably an exaggeration, but the point is well taken. The Internet is saving GE (GE: news, msgs, alerts) money faster than startup high-tech companies are using the Web to generate it. It`s hard to beat that.

On the flip side are companies like Borders (BGP: news, msgs, alerts) . The book chain, fearful of its demise, threw up an online business a few years ago after Amazon (AMZN: news, msgs, alerts) exploded onto the scene. Borders spent millions to build its Web page - and lost millions in the process.

Last month, Borders decided to shut its own online site - and team up with Amazon! The brazen Internet book seller, it turns out, also overspent and is facing troubles of its own.

Jeffry Bartash is a reporter for CBS.MarketWatch.com in Washington

. . .

Damit wollte ich nur auf die weiterhin bestehenden Risiken von Jyra aufmerksam machen.(Was als "Dienstleister" im ein "natürliches" Risko bleiben wird, auch wenn man es auf der anderen Seite genauso sehen kann: die Telcos sind bei einem geforderten hochqualitativen Standard (QoS) auf sehr gute "Tools" angewiesen sonst gehen sie vor der Konkurrenz baden!)
Dass sich BT Cellnet aber letztendlich unten vielen Mitbewerber für Jyra entschieden hat sollte eignetlich dem letzten Zweifler klar machen, das Jyra Qualität ist und seine Zukunft damit erst begonnen hat. Außerdem sollte es den "Großen" wie der Telekom und France Telekom ein Zeichen sein auf Jyras SMS aufmerksam zu werden (!)
Doch entscheidend für den Anleger wird sein, was tatsächlich schwarz auf weiß an "revenues" auf dem Papier b.z.w. in den kommenden Quartalberichten - nächster am 15. Mai - stehen wird!
Meiner eigenen Schätzung nach halte ich - pardon - geäußerte Prognosen von 700 Tsd US$ für Unsinn, ich gehe von um die 500 TSD aus.

Wir werden sehen . . .

Ein erläuternder Hinweis zur PR von Micromuse zu deren Deal
mit BT Cellnet und den Zusammenhang mit Jyra`s Deal:

Grundsätzlich ist dies nichts Negatives. Tatsächlich werden
sowohl Jyra als auch Netcool implementiert, wobei Netcool
mehr die Basis bildet und Jyra sich voll auf den Part
Performance Monitoring konzentriert. BT Cellnet hat Jyra
(so wie es in der PR steht) in sein "Service Management
Program" aufgenommen, und da sind eben auch noch andere
Anbieter mit drin. Es ist durchaus nicht unüblich, daß bis
zu 5 Provider von Service Management Software im weiteren
Sinne (also z.B. auch HP Openview, das bei fast allen
großen Firmen läuft) im Konzert zur Anwendung kommen. Daß
Jyra nur den Part Performance Monitoring übernimmt, liegt
voll im Rahmen der neuen Strategie, nach der man sich
inbesondere auf diesen Part konzentrieren will, da man hier
die besten Wettbewerbsvorteile sieht (siehe auch letzter
10-K: "The primary goal of the Business Development activity
is to position our product as the performance monitoring
element within wider Service Provider and Enterprise
solutions. This positioning assists the Company`s sales
force by adding weight to our message and by allowing the
Company to leverage the sales forces of complimentary
suppliers.").

Mir ist nicht bewußt, wer momentan verkauft - auf jeden Fall
kotzt es mich auch gewaltig an. Es helfen wohl nur noch die
nackten Zahlen, die heute oder morgen kommen. Was man dann
machen kann, ist den Umsatz auf das Jahr hochzurechnen und
das vergleichbare Umsatzmultiple von MUSE zur Bewertung
heranzuziehen (das müsste so bei um die 50 liegen), d.h. bei
500 Umsatz im ersten Quartal oder konservativ 2 Mio. im Jahr
- kein weiteres Wachstum unterstellt - müsste die Bewertung
dann bei ca. 100 Mio. Marktkapitalisierung liegen. Eine
Bewertung nach dem CCA (comparable company approach) ist
natürlich nur dann sinnvoll, wenn man Sicherheit hat, daß
das Unternehmen überhaupt stetig Umsätze generiert.

Mehr kann ich dazu nicht sagen. Außer - wie gesagt - daß
mich der Kursverlauf auch gewaltig anwidert. Aber hier wird
momentan einfach nur gezockt. Solange kein breites
Marktvolumen mit neuen Anlegern erreicht wird, bleibt die
Aktie weiter Spielball der Zocker. Hoffentlich wird sie auch
mal wieder nach oben gezockt.

cenix
Nachdem das Ganze ja nur schrittchenweise weitergeht, wird es
m.E. Zeit das Bewußtsein wieder etwas zu schärfen:

"During the first quarter of 2001 the new sales team and
strategy has provided the strongest quarter in the company`s
history.
Average order value and the quality of customers have both
strengthened, with the result that management are looking
forward to continued exciting sales activity during the
remainder of 2001."

Was kommt heute?

Um den 10-Q zu verstehen muß man schon etwas mit den US-GAAP-
Regelungen vertraut sein und hier insbesondere mit der "percentage
of completion"-Methode.

Insgesamt hat Jyra nämlich im ersten Quartal Aufträge im Wert von
über $ 800.000 erhalten. Da die tatsächliche Leistungserbringung
aber nicht vollständig im ersten Quartal, sondern auch auf die
Folgequartale verteilt erfolgt, konnte in Q1 nur ein Teilumsatz
mit BT Cellnet realisiert werden. Weitere $ 450.000 wurden als
deferred revenue verbucht und werden in den kommenden Quartalen
umsatzwirksam realisiert.

Mit den $ 800.000 wurden meine Erwartungen übertroffen.

Bedenkt man weiterhin, daß die Referenz BT Cellnet einen hohen
Marketing-Nutzen hat, so wird einem klar, daß Jyra jetzt tatsächlich
loslegt.

Item 2. Management`s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and
Results of Operations (cont)

Jyra wireless solutions are being used to monitor performance of next
generation interactive mobile services such as General Packet Radio Service
(GPRS) - data over mobile telephones, as well as WAP based services.
Performance of wireless applications is increasingly regarded as a
differentiator for mobile telecommunication companies delivering innovative
interactive services. Now, as a result of GPRS, mobile telecommunication
companies can deliver high bandwidth services but must focus on delivering
quality of service and improved content.

New mobile services are creating revolutionary business opportunities by
providing a new channel to market for existing services and the possibility for
totally new services that can reach customers 24 hours a day wherever they are.
It has been estimated that in excess $15 Billion will be spent on GSM
transmission equipment this year as mobile telecommunication companies compete
to offer the best performing services delivering high speed e-commerce related
Internet applications to the mobile user.

Europe, for the moment, leads the world in wireless service delivery. European
manufacturers dominate the handset market and European wireless operators are
delivering among the worlds most sophisticated services to a greater density of
customers than anywhere else. The USA has led the Internet phenomenon. A new
era is approaching in which the two biggest growth trends the Internet and
Wireless is converging. As a result of this convergence wireless operators, to
remain competitive, must deliver networks that support higher and higher
performance Internet services to mobile phones. We believe the company to be
well positioned to take advantage of this emerging market with the
implementation of a customised system already taking place on client site.

Item 2. Management`s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and

. . .
The new sales team and strategy made Quarter 1 2001 the strongest quarter in
the company`s history with average order value and the quality of customers
both strengthening. To capitalise on these changes we exerted considerable
efforts in forming a significant customer relationship in the wireless sector.
This relationship was with with BT Cellnet. Establishing the relationship with
BT Cellnet was one of the highest priority activities for everyone at Jyra
during the first quarter of 2001.

BT Cellnet purchased significant quantities of Jyra product in the first
quarter of 2001. BT Cellnet will use Jyra`s product to monitor performance of
GPRS services across their wireless network. This win was strategic both in
terms of Jyra`s position within this account but also in terms of providing us
with a world class reference with which we can address the wider fast emerging
market for wireless performance solutions. During 2001 we shall be focussing on
the wireless market, we believe that the BT Cellnet relationship will add
significant value to our proposition to other wireless operators.

Results of Operations (cont)
. . .

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The Company`s bookings and orders (including service related backlog) exceeded
$800,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2001.
The US GAAP revenue recognised
by the Company for the quarter ended March 31, 2001 was $357,406 compared to
$434,957 for the quarter ended March 31, 2000. The balance of the order values
(approx $450,000) has been accounted as deferred revenue in accordance with US
GAAP.


Sales and Marketing expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2001 was $378,821
compared to $242,565 for the quarter ended March 31, 2000. This increase
reflects the enhanced sales force and increased costs associated with the
increase in customer orders.

General and administrative expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2001 was
$121,047 compared to $128,453 for the quarter ended March 31, 2000.

Research and Development expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2001 was
$234,208 compared to $266,091 for the quarter ended March 31, 2000. The Company
continued to work on its existing development program, and is actively
recruiting additional development staff.

Interest expense was $509 in the quarter ended March 31, 2001.

Earnings(Loss) per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2001 was ($0.07).
The number of weighted average common shares outstanding was 14,450,919.


LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Net cash used by operating activities was $1,079,626 for the three months
ended March 31, 2001. The primary expenditure of this cash was to fund
the operating expenses offset against initial revenue adjusted for
depreciation, offset by Prepaid Expenses, Accounts Payable and Accounts
receivable.

Net cash received from investing activities was $25,688 for the three months
ended March 31, 2001. These funds were principally received as a result
of the disposal of certain items of property and equipment.

Item 2. Management`s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and
Results of Operations (cont)
. . .
As of March 31, 2001, the Company`s principal sources of liquidity
included cash and available for sale securities totalling $2,298,252. The
Company currently has no outstanding bank borrowings and has no established
lines of credit.
The Company continues to meet its working capital
requirements through its product sales revenue and financing transactions
involving the private placement of equity securities.

As at March 31 2001 we had disposed of 36,018 Path 1 at an average price of
$9.19 realising gross proceeds of $331,060. As at March 31 2001 we held 241,000

Item 2. Management`s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and
Results of Operations (cont)

During January 2001 our Board agreed that we will look to maximise our
financial return from the Corporation`s interest in Path1, the only quoted
shares that the Corporation currently owns. The Board authorised the gradual
reduction of the shareholding, in an orderly fashion over time. The Board gave
its irrevocable and unanimous consent and authorisation for the initiation and
completion of various disposals over time in respect of the Corporation`s total
holding of 277,018 shares in Path 1 Technologies Inc. As at March 31 2001 the
Company had disposed of a total of 36,018 shares at an average price of $9.19,

REVENUES. Revenues increased to $59.3 million and $109.1 million in the quarter and six months ended March 31, 2001, respectively, from $27.1 million and $49.5 million in the comparable periods of the prior year. License revenues increased to $43.2 million and $79.6 million in the quarter and six months ended March 31, 2001, respectively, from $20.1 million and $36.5 million in the comparable periods of the prior year. The growth in license revenues was primarily due to an increase in the number of product licenses sold, reflecting the increased acceptance of Netcool(R)/OMNIbus and the expansion of our sales organization and product offerings. Maintenance and services revenues increased to $16.1 million and $29.6 million in the quarter and six months ended March 31, 2001, respectively, from $7.0 million and $13.0 million in the comparable periods of the prior year. The increase in maintenance and services revenues was a result of providing maintenance and services to a larger installed base of customers. License revenues as a percentage of total revenues were 72.8% and 72.9% in the quarter and six months ended March 31, 2001, as compared to 74.2% and 73.7% in the comparable periods of the prior year.

COST OF REVENUES. The cost of license revenues consists primarily of technology license fees paid to third-party software vendors and production costs. Cost of license revenues as a percentage of license revenues increased to 5.5% and 5.6% in the quarter and six months ended March 31, 2001, respectively, from 5.3% and 5.2% in the comparable periods of the prior year primarily due to higher third-party royalty costs offset partially by economies of scale. The cost of maintenance and services revenues consists primarily of personnel-related costs incurred in providing maintenance, consulting and training to customers. Cost of maintenance and services revenues as a percentage of maintenance and services revenues decreased to 43.5% and 41.4% in the quarter and six months ended March 31, 2001, respectively, from 50.2% and 50.0% in the comparable periods of the prior year. This improvement, which was principally due to a proportionally greater percentage of higher-margin maintenance revenues, was partially offset by increased personnel, facilities, and travel costs associated with expanding the customer support and technical service organizations.

Micromuse Says Things Are Tough, But Looking Up

. . .
However, repeating the company`s predictions issued during its conference call with analysts after it
released its fiscal second-quarter financial results last month, Brown said Micromuse expects revenue
for this quarter to grow by about 6 percent to 7 percent versus its traditional 9 percent to 10 percent.

``It was tough last quarter,`` he said. ``It`s tough this quarter.``

However, Brown admitted the company is known to underplay its current financial performance.

``Our track record is to underpromise and overdeliver,`` he said.

``All of telecom is not sick,`` he said, alluding to the tough economic environment many
telecommunications companies face and one that has lead to several declaring bankruptcy. ``The
pipeline is very good.`` he said

ein paar Anmerkungungen von mir zu dem "Zahlenspiel" von Cenix:

gehen wir davon aus, dass die Umsätze tatsächlich über das ganze Jahr gleichmäßig so bleiben werden, wie sie jetzt im 1. Quartal waren (zum Vergleich vom Vorjahr:
"RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Revenues for the first quarter increased 276% to $434,957 compared to $115,382 for the quarter ended March 31, 1999. In addition, the Company was pleased to see that bookings and orders (including service related backlog) exceeded $500,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2000, surpassing management forecasts and general expectations."
was eine kritische Anmerkung einerseits von mir sein soll in der Hinsicht, dass die Umsätze von QZ1-2000 nicht weiter gehalten werden konnten!, wäre nämlich sonst: total 2000 = 4 x 500.000 = 2 Mio us$ für schon 2000 gewesen!)

also bleiben wir mal dabei, dass die Umsätze diesmal das ganze Jahr über gehalten werden können (weil "echte" Umsätze allein schon durch BT Cellnet!),
so hätten wir sogar mehr als von Dir Cenix gestern noch angenommen, nicht ca 2 Mio $ für total 2001 sondern 4 x 800.000 = 3,2 Mio $( wobei ein ansteigendes Wachstum nicht berücksichtig ist, schon deswegen nicht, weil die Mobilfunknetze mit dem neuen Standard GPRS(G3) bereits ab Mitte des Jahres b.z.w. spätestens im 4. Quartal dieses Jahres laufen werden).
Bleiben wir weiter bei dem "Vergleich": "das vergleichbare Umsatzmultiple von MUSE zur Bewertung heranzuziehen" so wären es bei 2 Mio entsprechend einer MK von 100 Mio bei einem Gesamtjahresumsatz 2001 von mind. 3.2 also eine MK von 160 Mio $, was eigentlich "zur Folge" hätte, dass bei einer jetzigen MK von ca 14,5 Mio $ (Kurs ca 1 $) der Aktienkurs entsprechend zum Jahresende bei mind. 11 us$ stehen sollte (wir also ca Mitte des Jahres bereits schon wieder unsere Einstiegskurse sehen könnten :); bei einer grösseren Umsatz von z.B. dem Doppelten also ca 6,5 Mio Gesamtjahresumsatz entsprechend . . .

o.k., niemand glaubt in der Hinsicht mehr irgendetwas (dazu haben wir in der Vergangenheit schon genug "Superaussichten" gehört),
schauen wir mal, was so an weiteren Vertragsabschlüssen noch mit anderen Telcos (echten! und keine "pilot projects") zustande kommt und!:
lassen wir uns mal überraschen, was Rienk van Kamer in seinem nächsten Börsenbrief, der am 1. Juni erscheinen wird, zu Jyra schreiben wird; sicher wird er gut informiert sein (werden) über die wirklich real zu erwartenden Umsätze in diesem Jahr und . . . vielleicht schreibt er ja eine Kaufempfehlung für seine Leser, weil ihm die Aktie angesicht derartigen Aussichten als eindeutig unterbewertet erscheint ?

Antarius
Antarius,

kurze Antwort zu Deinen Ausführungen was die Umsätze in Q1
2000 angeht:

Du hast natürlich grundsätzlich recht - eine Schwalbe macht
noch keinen Sommer. Das gleiche unwohle Gefühl schwirrt ganz
entfernt auch noch in meinem Magen rum.

Aber dennoch ist die Situation dieses Jahr ganz anders.

Zum einen Stand der Kapitalmarkt am Ende des Q1 2000 gerade
vor dem Absturz, was Jyra und auch ihren Kunden die
Finanzierung verhagelt hat. Die Finanzierung ist heute
gesichert.

Zum anderen war Jyra damals noch eine "development stage
company", was man heute nach SEC-Regularien nicht mehr ist
(steht auch so im Filing). D.h. heute hat man eine komplette
Vertriebstruppe mit über 10 Leuten stehen, damals waren es
gerade zwei Personen. Der ganze Fokus ist heute viel stärker
auf Verkauf und Marktpenetration ausgerichtet.

Und last but not least: Jyra ist um die Erfahrung des
letzten Jahres reicher - so etwas will man garantiert nicht
nochmals passieren lassen.

Und wie gesagt: Heute hat man bereits Umsätze für das
nächste Quartal in der Tasche - in Q1 2000 hatte 434 Umsätze
und 500 Auftragsbestand - heute hat man 357 Umsätze und
über 800 Auftragsbestand! D.h. es kommt noch einiges.

Shortsqueeze (wenn jemand glaubt das Shortpositionen bestehen und die auf dem Kurs lasten, dann hier ein Beispiel
wie man dem Abhilfe schaffen kann). Alles andere (ist versucht und funktioniert nicht):

Kurz umrissen die Geschichte! Bei der letzten Aktionärshauptversammlung (19 Februar 2001) stellte der Vorstand von Medinah Minerals fest, das obwohl nur ein Bruchteil aller Aktionäre vorhanden waren, daß über 190 Mil Stimmrechte vorhanden waren, obwohl nur knapp über 80 Mil. Aktien ausgegeben sind. Daher schätzt man momentan die Summe der verkauften Aktien auf über 500 Mil. obwohl nur 80 Mil existieren! Erschwerend kommt der Umstand dazu, das angeblich fast 100% der ausgegebenen Aktien registriert sind. D.h. den Besitzern namentlich zugeordnet sind!

Der Vorstand beschloß darauf Gegenmaßnahmen zu ergreifen! Es wurde ein Reversesplit 1:1,01 beschlossen. Weiters wurden die alten Medinah Aktien eingezogen, eine neue Cusip Nr. wurde beantragt, und die alten Aktien wurden für null und nichtig erklärt! Das soll die Marketmaker zwingen reale Aktien über den freien Markt zurückzukaufen.

Man bedenke, wenn jemand versucht von etwas 500 Mil zurückzukaufen, wovon es nur 80 Mil gibt. Der Kurs müsste ins unermessliche steigen! die Marketmaker sind natürlich mit allen Wassern gewaschen und werden versuchen möglichst ungeschoren aus dieser für sie misslichen Situation zu kommen. Im Prinzip ist es auch ein Kampf Kleinanleger gegen die Marketmaker! Wer behält die besseren Nerven! Um die Aktionäre bei der Stange zu halten gab Medinah Minerals auch noch eine aktiendividende von 20% aus! Diese sind aber zum gegenwärtigen Zeitpunkt noch nicht ausgeliefert!


http://www.8ung.at/zockstocks/MDMN.htm


es liegt (wie immer an der Firma etwas zu tun) ansonsten
geht mal davon aus, dass es kein short interest gibt.
Zitat Jyra HV: Uns ist nichts von einer Shortposition

Wireless Remorse
By Rick Wray - London Correspondent

LONDON - Maybe it was the word "auction" they didn`t understand.

In bidding almost $15 billion to buy two third-generation (3G) spectrum licenses from the British and German governments, British Telecommunications was one of a dozen global telecom firms eager to be part of the European handheld high-speed Internet market. Companies spent an unbelievable $115 billion to get in the Euro 3G game.

Last month, in a bout of buyer`s remorse, BT decided it had bid too much and asked the British government for some of its money back. The government politely but firmly said no. Now, with the 3G market unlikely to take off anytime soon, the telecom giant faces the prospect of asking its shareholders to help pay off its massive debt.

With the collapse of global technology stocks and bond markets groaning under the weight of telecom debt, Europe`s major wireless firms that once bet their pocketbooks on 3G licenses are suddenly desperate for help.
This time, though, banking authorities are warning financial institutions against lending too much to the troubled telecoms. That has left some begging governments for favors and asking equipment makers to shoulder their part of an increasingly risky 3G field.

So much for a sure thing. In April 2000, when BT, Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone and others firms peeled off $35 billion to the U.K. government for licenses in the first of Europe`s major radio-spectrum auctions, 3G was supposed to unlock the undisputed wealth of the European wireless market. With hundreds of millions of potential cell-phone-crazy customers from Stockholm to Seville, companies acted like Getty heirs at a Van Gogh auction in their bids to secure a place in the market.

One year later, with technological hiccups hampering the smooth introduction of Europe`s 3G networks, the telecom firms are coming to terms with just how much they overcommitted - and are appealing for relief.

To date, European governments have been anything but accommodating. In Germany, where six licenses were sold for more than $45 billion in August, the government has rebuffed all requests for refunds. The United Kingdom shot down BT, saying that a refund could provoke losing bidders to sue the government.

The French government has proved most intransigent, despite its shambles of a 3G sale last year. Instead of an auction, France held a "beauty contest," offering four licenses for $4 billion each to companies that offered the best deal for consumers.

Only Orange and SFR, a unit of Vivendi, coughed up the cash. The French government declines a refund, explaining that 3G proceeds are earmarked for social spending. (There`s also the specter of possible protests from France`s powerful unions.)

Only Spain has been sympathetic. Last week, it pushed back the required rollout date for 3G services from August 2001 to June 2002 because of delays in the production of 3G equipment.

Even if the technology does work eventually, experts doubt consumers will spend enough money to make 3G pay. In a report published this week, Jupiter Media Metrix calculates that interactive wireless revenues will grow from $104 million to $7.3 billion in 2005. But considering BT alone spent twice that amount for its licenses, that amount seems paltry. Shopping via wireless devices in 2005 will amount to only $3.5 billion; compare that with shopping on PCs, which is expected to exceed $58 billion in the same year.

If 3G doesn`t deliver, some of those bid-happy telecoms could become acquisition bait or risk going out of business. Speculation surrounds the future of Dutch telco KPN`s mobile business, which could be a possible target for Telecom Italia Mobile. KPN has a partnership with Japan`s DoCoMo, and the Japanese concern also has working arrangements with AT&T Wireless and Hutchison in the U.K. An acquisition by Telecom Italia would cement a wireless network stretching across the Atlantic.

At the moment such megadeals are mere whispers around Europe`s financial centers. But some patchwork deals to share 3G costs have already been sewn up.
Earlier this month, French industry minister Christian Pierret said her government would encourage the successful 3G bidders to share the costs of building the infrastructure to support 3G services. German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder has also expressed his support for companies to share each other`s wireless networks "as long as it doesn`t harm competition."

German telecoms E-Plus and MobilCom already have struck a deal; another is in the works between German license winner Group 3G and BT`s German unit, Viag Interkom.

Recently, Europe`s wireless operators have turned to gearmakers for help. In April alone, Hutchison secured $1.1 billion of vendor financing from NEC, Nokia and Siemens; Orange cut a deal with Alcatel, Ericsson and Nokia worth $1.8 billion.

The telecoms are hoping for more deals, mirroring traditional industries such as aerospace that have been using vendor financing for years. But predicting the cash flow from 3G services is far more precarious than forecasting revenue from a commercial airline. At least with airlines, you know the planes can get off the ground.
3G has yet to prove that.

Germany Gives 3G Relief To Telcos
By Todd Jatras

News and views from Europe:

Germany has eased the financial strain on Europe`s debt-ridden telecom sector by allowing the six owners of its third-generation cell phone licenses to share infrastructure costs on building out the new networks. But the country`s RegTP telecom watchdog stopped short of allowing full, nationwide joint operation of 3G networks in Europe`s largest and most competitive telecom market. The looser regulations could present a problem for European cell phone operators thinking about joining forces--a merger between two 3G players in Germany would mean giving up one of the costly licenses for nothing. The six 3G license winners, the two biggest being Deutsche Telekom and Vodafone , each paid more than $7 billion last year for the licenses. More . . .

Die nationalen Gesellschaften T-Mobil und Viag Interkom und One 2 One und BT Cellnet werden die 3 G-Infrastruktur gemeinsam aufbauen und nutzen.

Kai-Uwe Ricke, Vorstand Deutsche Telekom für Mobilfunk und Online sowie Chief Executive Officer von T-Mobile International:
"Die Vereinbarung ist wegweisend und ein wichtiger Meilenstein für den schnellen, flächendeckenden und kostengünstigen Netzaufbau in zwei der bedeutendsten Telekommunikationsmärkten Europas. Letztlich profitieren davon Kunden, Aktionäre und die Umwelt gleichermaßen."

Die gemeinsame Nutzung der UMTS-Infrastruktur wird einen schnelleren und günstigeren Ausbau der Netze der nächsten Mobilfunkgeneration erlauben. Die Unternehmen rechnen mit beträchtlichen Einsparungen, mit einer wahrscheinlich schnelleren Inbetriebnahme der UMTS-Netze und einer deutlich geringeren Zahl an Basisstationen und Masten.

So werden die Netzbetreiber mit deutlich weniger Antennenstandorten auskommen als bisher angenommen. T-Mobil geht für Deutschland davon aus, dass bis zu 50 Prozent der geplanten UMTS-Standorte für eine gemeinsame Nutzung in Frage kommen.

Insgesamt rechnet T-Mobile International mit möglichen Einsparungen für den Netzausbau von rund 30 Prozent in Deutschland und Großbritannien.

Die beabsichtigte Zusammenarbeit steht mit den regulatorischen und kartellrechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen in Einklang und gewährleistet die Unabhängigkeit der Lizenznehmer. One 2 One hat daneben die Möglichkeit, BT Cellnets bestehende 2G und 2,5 G-Netze für sogenanntes "National Roaming" zu nutzen, ähnlich der Vereinbarung zwischen T-Mobil und Viag Interkom in Deutschland.

Insgesamt möchte T-Mobile International auf diese Art auch bei UMTS die Versorgungsauflagen weit übertreffen und eines der dichtesten und flächendeckendsten 3G-Netze Europas aufbauen.

BT Wireless, T-Mobile to cooperate on 3G roll-out in UK,

Tue 12 Jun 2001 07:29:28

LONDON (AFX) - BT Wireless and T-Mobile International, the mobile telecom
arms of British Telecommunications PLC and Deutsche Telekom AG, said their
operating companies in the UK and Germany intend to co-operate on the roll-out
of third generation (3G) mobile networks.

The companies are the first operators to announce such an approach in two
of the largest mobile markets in western Europe, they said in a statement.

BT Wireless said it sees potential cost savings of up to 30 pct over 10
years on its capital expenditure relating to 3G network develo0pment.

It also sees a potential to expand the network availability of next
generation mobile multimedia and data services more quickly and a reduction in
the required number of new masts and base stations.

In the UK, BT Cellnet has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with
One2One, a wholly-owned subsidiary of T-Mobile, and in Germany T-Mobil has
signed a similar MoU with Viag Interkom, which is wholly-owned by BT Wireless,
the statement said.


It is expected that definitive agreements will be signed at the end of the
summer after detailed planning activities have been concluded.

The agreement foresees a co-ordinated roll-out of 3G infrastructure and
sharing of new and existing base stations, including sites, masts and antennas,
in major urban areas.

It also envisages co-operation on the initial build of 3G infrastructure as
well as bilateral roaming on 3G networks, the companies said.

In addition, One2One customers will have the opportunity to roam on BT
Cellnet`s 2G and 2.5G networks in selected areas of the UK.

Peter Erskine, chief executive officer of BT wireless, said: "This is a
pioneering agreement - we are the first to drive the intelligently planned
creation of future mobile communications in two of the biggest mobile markets
in western Europe."

Kai Uwe Ricke, chief executive officer of T-Mobile International, said:
"This partnership is the most far-reaching co-operation agreed to date in
Europe."

BT Wireless said it estimates potential capital expenditure savings of
around 20 pct of the total 3G capital expenditure, or up to 30 pct of capital
expenditure related to 3G network components only.

BT announced on May 10 that it intends to de-merge BT Wireless before the
end of this year.

Dies sollte auch unsere Aufmerksamkeit verdienen:

http://www.freshwater.com/press/mercuryRelease.htm
Freshwater (zählt in manchen Bereichen zu den direkten Wettbewerbern von JYRA ) ist von Mercury für 147 Mio. USD in Cash übernommen worden!
Wieder ein Zeichen für die Konsolidierungswelle im Service Management-Bereich.
Anzahl der ausstehenden Aktien ist nicht bekannt, da Freshwater nicht public, d.h. nicht börsengelistet war. Allerdings kann man die Bewertung auf Jyra zurückrechnen. Bei 14.677.586 Aktien entspricht das einen Preis von rd. 10 USD pro Aktie.
Allerdings wäre dies kein fairer Vergleich, da Freshwater im letzten Jahr 15 Mio. USD Umsatz gemacht hat und profitabel war. In 2001 rechnet man mit 20 Mio. USD.
Freshwater wurde ebenfalls wie Jyra 1996 gegründet.

Micromuse shares plunge on earnings fears

NEW YORK, June 13 (Reuters) - Shares of software firm Micromuse Inc. (NasdaqNM:MUSE - news) plunged more than 20
percent on Wednesday amid fears that the company would not be able to meet Wall Street expectations for its fiscal third quarter,
analysts said.

Company officials were not immediately available to comment.

Shares of Micromuse were off 20 percent, or $9, at $34.40, on heavy afternoon trading on the Nasdaq, where the stock was the biggest net loser. Its 52-week trading range is $23.20 to $108.38.

``There are concerns about the company being able to meet expectations for the quarter,`` said Prakesh Patel, an analyst with WR Hambrecht & Co. ``They haven`t warned,`` Patel said. ``But that`s the concern.``

Patel said Micromuse`s Chief Executive Greg Brown was speaking on Wednesday afternoon at the Bear Sterns technology conference in New York.

RESEARCH ALERT - Micromuse cut to buy

NEW YORK, June 14 (Reuters) - Deutsche Banc Alex. Brown said it downgraded Micromuse Inc. (NasdaqNM:MUSE -
news) to buy from strong buy after the software company made cautious comments about business conditions.

The firm said comments by Micromuse`s management that customers are making smaller purchases is ``a new circumstance and worrisome....anecdotal evidence accumulates suggesting slowing business momentum.``

The firm said Micromuse`s corporate business ``appears solid,`` but its telecommunications sector is likely the weak area. Many equipment and services firms have been hurt by a cutback in spending by telecommunications companies during the slowing economy.

The firm expects Micromust to focus on maintaining and building market share at the expense of substantial top-line growth. It expects Micromust to earn 12 cents a share, on revenues of $63.6 million, in the third fiscal quarter, and earn 47 cents a share on sales of $241.2 million for the full year.

Shares of Micromuse lost $7.74, or 22 percent, to $27.28 in morning trading on Nasdaq, adding to weakness seen on Wednesday.

na, da wird ja echt viel Geld frei, um jetzt in Jyra einzusteigen ;),
dort strickt man ja event. schon am nächsten big deal . . .:)

und heute geht jemandem bei jyra die geduld aus. bisher 42.000 st. auf der verkaufsseite
derjenige hat es wohl versäumt ab und zu mal bei
http://www.jyra.com/solutions/casestudy.html
"vorbeizuschauen", um hier die Veränderungungen, besonders die kommenden im Auge zu behalten.

The Yipes - Jyra relationship began in Q1 2000 with the initial
implementation of the SMS solution across their fiber optic network at the
points-of-presence. Yipes provides a customer focused approach by
providing business customers with light-speed data services featuring true
bandwidth-on-demand. Yipes wanted to offer a Service Level Agreement of sub 10 ms from
anywhere to anywhere on their network and, should they not meet this SLA, offer a service
rebate. In order to do this they turned to Jyra. Jyra generates service level breaches
(exceptions) automatically and feeds them into the Yipes billing and customer case systems
enabling Yipes to offer Dynamic Service Rebates (DSR`s). Since the initial implementation Jyra
has worked closely with Yipes helping them grow this business model, with the latest
progression being the use of JyraScope. The JyraScope reports are published on the web
allowing Yipes to offer a true Quality driven service.

"The remarkable ability of Jyra`s Service Management Solution to scale with Yipes`
rapidly-expanding IP networks was instrumental in our decision to purchase it," said Dr.
Kamran Sistanizadeh, Vice President of Network Architecture at Yipes. "Jyra is providing
us with a critical tool to offer highly flexible and reliable managed services to our
customers now and in the future."

TELECOMMUNICATIONS
3G boost as IBM breaks speed barrier
By Tony Glover
Mon 25 Jun 2001

LONDON (SHARECAST) - A new IBM transistor that could revolutionise third-generation mobile phones is good news for 3G operators such as Vodafone and Orange. The new transistor will power chips that will be 100 times faster than the Pentium 4, the silicon chip that currently powers many personal computers.


As well as speed, the new transistors will also offer phone makers a 50% reduction in power consumption over current designs. The transistor uses a modified design and IBM’s silicon germanium chips, which can be built on existing manufacturing lines, to reach speeds of 210 GigaHertz while drawing only a milli-amp of electrical current.

IBM vice president Bernard Meyerson said: “Just as aircraft were once believed incapable of breaking an imaginary ‘sound barrier’, silicon-based transistors were once thought of breaking through a 200 GigaHertz speed barrier”.

The new chips would enable 3G operators to offer services such as low-cost, high-speed interactive gaming over 3G mobile phones and their introduction within two years should coincide with the roll-out of 3G networks.

WestLB Panmure analyst Benedict Evans said: “The new IBM transistor represents another brick in the 3G edifice that is now starting to take shape. The question regarding 3G handsets is one of getting sufficient power at the right price without sacrificing too much battery power.”

Angesichts der herben Kursverluste - auch im Allgemeinen aber in unserem Falle auch bei Jyra, hiermit die Übersetzung des letzten "Kamer financial newsletter" vom 1. Juni zu Jyra (die ich erst gestern erhalten habe). Kamer sprach sich aber nicht negativ gegenüber Jyra aus - eher das Gegenteil!:
(mit freundlicher Genehmigung des Abbonenten und Übersetzers)

""
The translation of what Kamer wrote on the first of June.

Here it follows:

"Things are coming to life at Jyra, about which management at last is making some announcements again. Most important is the confirmation that the leading mobile telephone-company of England, British Telecom-daughter BT Cellnet indeed has become a Jyra-client by incorporating the perfomance-technology of Jyra in the BT-service General Packet Radio Service. That`s the section that deals with WAP and UMTS.
More important than the technical details is the fact that the tiny Jyra was selected by the big BT Cellnet. That means a direct acknowledgement of the technological usefulness and quality of the Jyra-product.
And that - in our sceptisism - we wanted to see first, in order to be able to judge whether there still is viability in a Jyra-future. Conclusion, yes indeed.
In the long run, of course, this contract can lead to important cash flow.
The section marketing was reinforced by a contract with the British Convergent Network Solutions (CNS), which employes the Jyra-software for the measurement of performance within her concultancy-services for the networks and websites of big, well-established businesses that belong tot the existing clients of CNS.
Because of conscious management (bewusstes Geschaftsfuehrung) the first successes of the organized approach are in the homeland, England. We expect more news about improvements of this sort in the marketing- and distribution-activity, also outside England."

"Casually also the quarter-results were published. There was no suprise. We already knew that cash flow is starting off with great difficulty, but even so, it is going upward.
Revenue in the first quarter was about $ 500.000,00, costs about $ 1.000.000,00. Besides the sale of a handful of Path 1-shares a new private placement against $ 0,75 a share has taken place to stop the gap.
In future, as is to be expected, the upward sales-activity will see to that. In the mean time Jyra holds in reserve about
$ 2.000.000,00 (present value) of immediate salable shares of Path 1.
It all is somewhat minimalistic, but Jyra has taken a turn for the better. And that was my condition for my thumb up or my thumb down (hope I translated this last sentence well). A hesitant up, for the time being."

That was what Kamer wrote in his newsletter of June 1.
""

Im letzten (Juli) Kamer newsletter über Jyra:

""
Kamer wrote a short message about Jyra:

"Jyra reports in a phone call that the dynamic within the renewed salesforce and - strategy is increasing; number of prospects and orders also."
He also states that Jyra is in a very tough sector (tech, internet, small). That sector at the moment knows very little buyers.

P.S.:
für diejenigen, die das Path1-board nicht lesen:
inzwischen sind ein Dutzend "Boardautoren" (IDs ("Identitäten") - Nicknames) vom wallstreet-online Webmaster gesperrt worden, alle die gleiche IP-Adresse und damit mutmasslich der selbe Autor, der uns nicht nur auf den Path1-boards sondern auch auf den Jyraboards seit ca 2 Jahren! somit belügt und betrügt.
Vermutlich wird die Angelegenheit vor der Staatsanwaltschaft ein entgültiges Ende finden.
Noch was nachträglich:

seit dem Kamer letter, dessen Übersetzung ich hier ins board gestellt habe b.z.w. seines Erscheinens sind ja 5 Wochen vergangen und der Kurseinbruch (Verkauf durch ca 200.000 Stück - b.z.w. sofortige "Aufnahme" von Käufern sonst wäre der Kurs noch tiefer! ) ist erst vor kurzem gewesen.
Nach meinen Infos (keine wirkliche "Garantie" dazu, eher ein "Gerücht") soll ein Aktionär aus Übersee eine grosse Stückzahl aus . . . na, sagen wir mal "finanztechnischen" Gründen hat verkaufen müssen, die er sich aber wieder zurückkaufen wird.

Es sollte klar sein, dass "wir hier in Deutschland" nur "peanuts" sind als deutsche "Kleinaktionäre", wenn also jemand bei so einem "marktengen" Wert "notverkaufen" (event. unlimitiert) muss, rauscht der Kurs nach unten,
ganz zu schweigen, wenn Kamer seinen "Daumen nach unten" gemacht hätte b.z.w. machen würde !, dann fliegen gleich hunderttausende von Stücken auf den Markt b.z.w. aus den Depos und dann "gute Nacht", dann sehen wir schnell Kurse um 10 us cent.
Somit sollte klar sein wo das Risiko liegt b.z.w. die "Chancen".
Das BT Cellnet sich für Jyras SMS entschieden hatte ist fast eine Garantie für Letzteres vorausgesetzt BT zerschlägt/ verkauft sich - auf Grund der enormen Verschuldungen (auch durch die UMTS-Lizenserwerbung und die Notwendigkeit jetzt deswegen zum Aufbau desselben in neue Netzwerktechnik investieren zu müssen) nicht scheibchenweise selber.

Ansonsten nicht in den pessimistischen "Jyratunnelblick" verfallen und auch die "Konkurrenz" (wie z.B. Keynote - als auch Micromuse) mal beobachten, da sehen die Kurse ebenfalls "verheerend" aus.
