Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 31.180.170 von Aptamilla am 16.08.07 10:21:40na ja bis 5,-CAD gings schon ein bischen schnell
Aber nach dem Boersenumfeld wirds wohl bald unter
4,-CAD gehen.
Das gute ist das Neom seine Verbindlichkeiten
mit dem Erlös gesenkt hat.

Timing ist alles:lick:

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 31.182.894 von meeting am 16.08.07 12:38:35Ja,sehe dieses Unternehmen gut aufgestellt,keine Frage!Aber was hat ein Zulieferer mit der Immoblienkrise zutun???:confused:
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 31.198.385 von Aptamilla am 17.08.07 09:30:11Ganz einfach

1. z.Z. ist alles schlecht egal welcher Wert

2. Die Kreditvergabe bei Banken wird komplett
umgestellt (wie weiß keiner aber die Angst ist da)

3. Wer Schulden hat kann ins Trudeln kommen, da die
Banken wenn sie Geld brauchen Ihre Kredite einseitig
kündigen können.

4. Unternehmensdaten spielen keine Rolle
(wird sich erst nach den Turbolenzen ändern).

Der Wert ist gut Zahlen stimmen und keinen interessierts

Das Gute ist das wir gestern in Kanada so gut zurückgekommen sind.;);)
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 31.203.319 von meeting am 17.08.07 14:04:09Ich komm ja auch ganz gerne:laugh:.Kann mich aber mit dem sell-off in Kanada nicht richtig anfreunden.Da war das Volumen dick und fett.Übrigens bezahlt NEM vorzeitig und wird dafür noch bestraft.:confused:

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 31.379.289 von biotech_nett am 04.09.07 06:21:01Ich für mich zurre schon die 6 CAD mittelfristig fest.Die Zahlen waren hervorragend und werden in Zukunft noch besser.Da bin ich mir schon sicher.Einige Investmenthäuser haben dieses Unternehmen nun erkannt und kaufen sich ein.Bin mal gespannt,wann der Zauberfilter auf den Markt kommt.:)
In Toronto haben sich die Kurse mustergültig konsolidiert.Denke,das wir bald wieder steigen.;)

Cooler Beitrag vom Bullboaed kopiert:

Stockholders often get nervous just before earnings are announced for fear they won't live up to expectations. Pumpers and bashers feed on this vulnerability and sometimes exacerbate the fluctuations. If you believe NEM has the resources it needs to complete the work-in-hand, produce profits, and sustain growth for the longer term, these dips are a perfect time to buy stock at a reduced price. Think of it as a seasonal clearance event -- and who doesn't love a sale when buying a quality product?

Trust your DD, not my opinion or short-term fluctuations.

Auf gute Zahlen nächste Woche

Attention Business/Financial Editors
Neo Material Technologies reports third quarter 2007 financial results

<<
- Sales increase to US$63.1 million
- EBITDA at US$15.3 million
- Net income and EPS at US$5.7 million and US$0.06
- Adjusted Net income and EPS of $8.0 million and US$0.09
- Magnequench & AMR volumes at 1,097 and 1,882 tonnes respectively
>>

TORONTO, Nov. 12 /CNW/ - Neo Material Technologies Inc. (TSX: NEM) (the
"Company") today reported its financial results for the three-month and
nine-month period ending September 30, 2007. Unless otherwise specified, all
currency amounts are expressed as U.S. dollars.
For the three-month period ended September 30, 2007, the Company reported
sales of $63.1 million and net income of $5.7 million or $0.06 per share on a
basic and fully diluted basis. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation
and amortization ("EBITDA") during the quarter were $15.3 million. This
compares to third quarter 2006 sales of $41.2 million and net income, EBITDA
and diluted earnings per share of $7.5 million, $14.5 million and $0.09,
respectively. The year over year decline in net income was due to the
write-off of the balance of debt issue costs of $2.3 million relating to the
August 2005 financing. Adjusted net income is the sum of net income and the
write-off of the balance of debt issue costs. An increase of over 10% in the
effective tax rate as compared to the third quarter of 2006 also impacted net
earnings in this quarter.
For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2007, the Company reported
sales of $174.6 million and net income of $19.7 million, or $0.23 per share on
a fully diluted basis. EBITDA during the nine-month period amounted to
$44.3 million. This compares to 2006 nine-month sales of $117.8 million and
net income, EBITDA and diluted earnings per share of $19.2 million, $41.5
million and $0.23, respectively.
For both the quarter and year to date, operating income as a percentage
of sales declined from 2006 levels primarily as a result of higher input
costs, particularly for raw materials. However, on a dollar margin per
kilogram basis, the impact was offset by increased selling prices and as a
result of higher volumes, total gross margin increased.
At September 30, 2007, the Company had $9.0 million in cash and cash
equivalents. Long-term debt was $44.3 million as at September 30, 2007,
compared to $57.8 million at June 30, 2007.
On August 2, 2007, the Company completed a public offering of its common
shares resulting in the issuance of 17,600,000 common shares of the Company at
a purchase price of Cdn$4.60 per common share for gross proceeds to the
Company of approximately $77.0 million. The Company used the net proceeds
along with a portion of the new debt facility for the early retirement of its
$50.0 million convertible debenture at a negotiated total repurchase price of
$95.0 million. The debenture was put in place August 2005 as part of the
merger transaction between AMR Technologies Inc. and Magnequench Inc. The
debenture carried a 10% coupon and was convertible at Cdn$2.50 per share,
representing, at current exchange rates, an issuance of approximately
21,000,000 shares. The Company's ability to eliminate the conversion of
21,000,000 shares, and $5.0 million in annual interest expense through the
issuance of 17,600,000 shares, and the use of a new debt facility bearing
interest at a rate below 10 %, made this an accretive transaction for
shareholders.
Volumes at both divisions remained strong. Magnequench shipped
1,097 tonnes, a 3% year-over-year increase, while AMR Performance Materials
shipped 1,882 tonnes, representing a 21% increase compared to the tonnage
shipped in the same three-month period in 2006.

3:26pm ET (Dow Jones Newswires)

TORONTO (Dow Jones)--Neo Material Technologies Inc. (NEM.T) is "a very compelling growth play," Haywood Securities Inc. analyst Terry Thib said, with limited competition, a sustainable competitive advantage, and a strong management team.

In a research report Wednesday, Thib initiated coverage of the company at sector outperform with a C$7.50 target. Neo Material is trading at C$4.91 in Toronto Wednesday, down 2 Canadian cents.

He said Neo Material is one of "only a handful" of rare earth elements suppliers. The rare earth market is expected to grow at an average compound annual growth rate of 10% over the next five years, driven by increasing technology adoption, miniaturization, increasingly stringent environmental regulations, and energy efficiency initiatives, he said.

He added that the company has a "solid, sustainable" competitive advantage through its Chinese presence, process expertise, patent portfolio, and longstanding customer relationships. It's leveraging its customer relationships, scale, and ability to offer better price points to entice OEMs into substituting ferrite magnets in industrial, automotive, and household appliances, Thib said, adding another layer of growth. This could result in a near-doubling of volume, which should lead to "significant" shareholder value when coupled with incremental fixed costs.

He also said the Toronto company's management team consists of veterans who have guided the company through growth or experienced professionals with a "successful past in large-scale international operations."

He expects Neo Material will continue to perform, growing its core business while it works on a number of strategic initiatives "that hold the potential for significant upside."

Haywood doesn't have an investment-banking relationship with Neo Material, nor does Thib own shares of the company.

Neo Material A "Very Compelling" Growth Play: Haywood


3:26pm ET (Dow Jones Newswires)

TORONTO (Dow Jones)--Neo Material Technologies Inc. (NEM.T) is "a very compelling growth play," Haywood Securities Inc. analyst Terry Thib said, with limited competition, a sustainable competitive advantage, and a strong management team.

In a research report Wednesday, Thib initiated coverage of the company at sector outperform with a C$7.50 target. Neo Material is trading at C$4.91 in Toronto Wednesday, down 2 Canadian cents.

Ein guter Start in 2008
Increase of Chinese Government`s Rare Earths Export Tariff

3 January 2008
INCREASE OF CHINESE GOVERNMENT’S EXPORT TARIFF ON RARE EARTHS
Key Points:
• Chinese export tariffs on Rare Earths increased to between 15% and 25%
• The export tariff increase on current prices would equate to an international market price of US$12.82/kg of Rare Earths Oxide for the Mount Weld distribution
The Chinese Government authorities announced increases of the export tariff on Rare Earths effective 1 January 2008. The export tariff, which was originally introduced 14 months ago at 10% for all Rare Earths, has been increased as follows:
􀂃 Europium, Terbium, Dysprosium, Yttrium as oxides carbonates, or chlorides 25%
􀂃 All other Rare Earth oxides, carbonates, and chlorides 15%
􀂃 Neodymium as metal 15%
􀂃 All other Rare Earths metals 25%
The export tariff increase on current prices would equate to an international market price of US$12.82/kg of Rare Earths Oxide for the Mount Weld distribution.
Lynas Corporation (“Lynas”) (ASX code LYC) believes the increase of the export tariff highlights the shortage of Rare Earths and confirms the policy of the Chinese Government to protect the increasingly tight supply of Rare Earths in China. China is essentially the only current global source for these strategic elements until Lynas’ Mount Weld project comes on stream in 2009.
“With Lynas’ non China assets the company will benefit from these structural changes through the increase in the international price for these essential elements as well as continued international concern of security of Chinese supply” commented Executive Chairman, Nicholas Curtis.

About Lynas Corporation
Lynas owns the richest deposit of Rare Earths, also known as Lanthanides, in the world at Mount Weld, near Laverton in Western Australia. This deposit underpins Lynas’ strategy to create a reliable, fully integrated source of Rare Earths supply from the mine through to customers in the global Rare Earths industry.
The mining contractor has commenced mining with first ore placed on the stockpiles in December 2007. Lynas is in the detailed design phase of an Advanced Materials Plant to be established by Lynas Malaysia Sdn Bhd in the Gebeng Industrial Estate, Kuantan, Pahang, Malaysia. The company plans to become the benchmark for security of supply and a world leader in quality and environmental responsibility to an international customer base.
‘Rare Earths’ is the term given to fifteen metallic elements known as the lanthanide series, plus yttrium. They play a key role in green environmental products, from energy efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) to hybrid cars, automotive catalytic converters and wind turbine generators. They are also essential in the development and manufacturing of many modern technological products, from hard disc drives to flat panel displays, iPods and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 33.133.908 von winorloose am 22.01.08 18:55:00Hallo winorloose,
bisher habe ich mich an Deinen Einschätzungen und den von Aptamilla immer wunderbar orientieren können und das schon über einen längeren Zeitraum. Im Moment scheint ein wenig die Luft aus der Aktie raus zu sein und von Euch höre ich leider auch nichts mehr. Seid Ihr ausgestiegen oder geht da noch was nach Eurer Meinung. :confused:
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 33.443.363 von watts54 am 22.02.08 08:10:25Hi watts,

bin auf jeden Fall noch dabei, die Zahlen kommen ja bald und
irgendwann muss doch auch mal ein Newsflow losgehen. Die
Börsenturbulenzen am Jahresanfang haben NEM im Grunde völlig
unberechtigt getroffen, aber wer weiß schon wer hier auch
solche Perle verkaufen muss um Liquiditätsengpässe zu meistern.
Jedenfalls keine Kleinaktionäre. Ich erwarte gute Zahlen, dann
gibt es auch wieder was zu diskutieren :)

Schönes WE

3/6/2008
TORONTO, Mar 6, 2008 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX News Network) --

Neo Material Technologies Inc. (TSX: NEM) (the "Company") today reported its financial results for the three-month and twelve-month periods ending December 31, 2007. Unless otherwise specified, all currency amounts are expressed in U.S. dollars.

For the year ended December 31, 2007, the Company reported increased revenues of $240.5 million and net income of $28.2 million, or $0.32 and $0.30 per share on a basic and fully diluted basis, respectively. Operating income plus depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") for the year was $61.6 million. This compares to 2006 revenues of $162.6 million, net income of $27.8 million, or $0.35 and $0.33 per share on a basic and fully diluted basis, respectively, and EBITDA of $54.6 million. The reduction in earnings per share is due primarily to the increased number of shares issued and outstanding on a year-over-year comparative basis.

For the three-month period ended December 31, 2007, the Company reported revenues of $65.9 million and net income of $8.6 million, or $0.09 and $0.08 per share on a basic and fully diluted basis, respectively. EBITDA during the quarter amounted to $17.2 million. This compares to fourth quarter 2006 revenues of $44.7 million, net income of $8.6 million, or $0.11 and $0.11 per share on a basic and fully diluted basis, respectively, and EBITDA of $14.2 million.

At December 31, 2007, the Company had $17.2 million in cash and cash equivalents. Long-term debt was $40.1 million at December 31, 2007, compared to $44.3 million at September 30, 2007. The Company ended 2007 with net debt of $48.6 million, compared to $78.1 million at the end of 2006. Expected operating cash flow in 2008, combined with the anticipated exercise of 17.7 million share warrants generating approximately $44 million by July of this year, would allow the Company to retire its debt. As a result, the Company is well positioned with a strong and flexible balance sheet, which will enable it to pursue growth opportunities that will complement its strong organic growth profile.

Throughout 2007 and the fourth quarter, volumes at both divisions remained strong and reached record levels. Magnequench shipped 1,183MT in the fourth quarter, a 23% quarter-over-quarter increase, while AMR Performance Materials shipped 2,315MT in the quarter, a 33% increase compared to the tonnage shipped in the same three-month period in 2006.

Growth from "New Applications" at Magnequench continued to be strong, while the Company continues to gain further traction within the automotive, consumer electronics and appliances sectors. The outlook for the "Base Business" looks very promising given the strong results and positive commentary from leaders in the hard-disk supply chain.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 33.574.115 von winorloose am 06.03.08 23:30:04Mein Kommentar zu den Zahlen:
Umsatz wurde von 162 auf 240 Mio.$ gesteigert,
Nettogewinn nur von 27,8 auf 28,2,
EPS Fällt wg. höherer Sharezahl von 0,33 auf 0,30
(Warrants wurden ausgeübt)
Schulden fallen von 78,1 auf 48,6 Mio und werden in 2008
vollständig abgebaut

Der gewaltige Umsatzsprung wird leider durch eine ebenso hohe
Steigerung der Kosten (o.AfA) von 81 auf 146 Mio kaum gewinnwirksam.
Ob die angestiegenen Rohstoffkosten nicht an die Kunden weitergereicht wurden?
Die Fusion mit Magnequench ist jedoch abgeschlossen und die Warrants
und Schulden werden in großen Schritten abgebaut. Die Richtung
stimmt, der Kurs ist in meinen Augen unterbewertet.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 33.613.087 von winorloose am 11.03.08 20:09:53Danke für den Kommentar,
Umsatzentwicklung gut, in € nur befriedigend
Kosten kaum erklärbar

Ich stocke nicht auf - Kurs ist angemessen.
Bekommen die die Kosten nicht in den Griff? Was ist, wenn die hohen Marktpreise wieder um 40%-50% nachgeben? Ist bei den seltenen Erden wohl recht unwarscheinlich, aber bei den hohen Kosten wären die dann wohl schnell in Schwierigkeiten.

Grund, 50% der Aktien zu verkaufen, um so den Investierten Betrag wieder rauszuholen? ??
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 33.624.736 von mystreet am 12.03.08 21:03:58Das mit den Kosten kann ja auch positiv sein? Marktstrategie,
Restrukturierung, Forschung und Entwicklung.... Immerhin ist NEO
nach der Fusion und gestütztduch die Patente ein Big-Player mit Alleinstellungsmerkmalen. Wenn nur mal eine optimistische News
zur Nanoforschung kommt. Also ein KGV unter 20 ist hier doch echt
untertrieben.


Für mich eher Time to say: "Good buy!" :)
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 33.629.648 von winorloose am 13.03.08 13:07:46Hey Winorloose,
ich beobachte die langsame Talfahrt mit ein wenig Sorge. "Time to say goodbye" ist das ernsthaft von Dir gemeint oder hab ich etwas falsch verstanden. Steigst Du aus? Ich würde dann lieber auch den Gewinn mitnehmen, obwohl der ja doch schon mal um ein Drittel höher lag. Aber im Moment scheint keine Entwicklung nach oben zu gehen................oder!?http://img.wallstreet-online.de/smilies/frown.gif
:(
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 33.631.859 von watts54 am 13.03.08 15:57:34:)Ne, sollte nur ein Wortspiel sein!:)
Ich halte diesen Kurs für eine gut Einstiegschance (good buy!)
An`s Verkaufen denke ich erst wieder ab Kursen über 6$, wenn keine
guten News kommen. Die Aktie ist durch den Dollarabsturz und den
Börsentumulten zu Jahresbeginn übertrieben gedrückt worden. Immerhin
steht der Ca-Dollar heute pari zum US-Dollar!

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 33.654.831 von winorloose am 16.03.08 20:07:04Hallo Fachmänner!!!
Was ist denn jetzt los? Allgemeiner Sog oder wie erklärt sich die momentane Talfahrt nach Eurer Meinung. Good Buy ab welchem Preis? Oder good bye? Wäre schön, wenn jemand eine Erklärung für den Kurssturz hätte und wenn es nur ansatzweise wäre. Danke:confused::confused:
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 33.666.556 von watts54 am 17.03.08 21:55:44Kurz gesagt:allgemeine Börsenhysterie durch Banken ausgelöst und auf alle Indizes abgefärbt.Banal:Neo baut in diesem Jahr den Schuldenberg ab und schreibt schwarze Zahlen.Ist wohlbemerkt Marktführer als Zulieferer der Big Player und im Nanoumfeld vertreten.Die Kennzahlen stimmen.Der Kurs ist krass unterbewertet.Die Zukunftsaussichten sind hervorragend und die Risiken in allen Geschäftssegmenten kaum erkennbar.Fazit:dieses innovative Unternehmen ist ein klarer Kauf.Chancen überwiegen Risiken im vollen Umfang.Frohe Ostern:)
Das Management traut der eigenen Firma auch mehr zu.

About BUYINS.NET

WWW.BUYINS.NET is a service designed to help bonafide shareholders of publicly traded US companies fight naked short selling. Naked short selling is the illegal act of short selling a stock when no affirmative determination has been made to locate shares of the stock to hypothecate in connection with the short sale. Buyins.net has built a proprietary database that uses Threshold list feeds from NASDAQ, AMEX and NYSE to generate detailed and useful information to combat the naked short selling problem. For the first time, actual trade by trade data is available to the public that shows the attempted size, actual size, price and average value of short sales in stocks that have been shorted and naked shorted. This information is valuable in determining the precise point at which short sellers go out-of-the-money and start losing on their short and naked short trades.

BUYINS.NET has built a massive database that collects, analyzes and publishes a proprietary SqueezeTrigger for each stock that has been shorted, www.buyins.net/squeezetrigger.pdf. The SqueezeTrigger database of nearly 1,900,000,000 short sale transactions goes back to January 1, 2005, and calculates the exact price at which the Total Short Interest is short in each stock. This data was never before available prior to January 1, 2005, because the Self Regulatory Organizations (primary exchanges) guarded it aggressively. After the SEC passed Regulation SHO, exchanges were forced to allow data processors like Buyins.net to access the data.

The SqueezeTrigger database collects individual short trade data on over 7,000 NYSE, AMEX and NASDAQ stocks and general short trade data on nearly 8,000 OTCBB and PINKSHEET stocks. Each month the database grows by approximately 50,000,000 short sale transactions and provides investors with the knowledge necessary to time when to buy and sell stocks with outstanding short positions. By tracking the size and price of each month's short transactions, BUYINS.NET provides institutions, traders, analysts, journalists and individual investors the exact price point where short sellers start losing money.

Neo Material Technologies Inc. (TSX: NEM) (the "Company") today reported its financial results for the three-month period ending March 31, 2008. Unless otherwise specified, all currency amounts are expressed in U.S. dollars.

For the three-month period ended March 31, 2008, the Company reported increased revenues of $65.5 million and net income of $8.3 million, or $0.08 per share on a basic and fully diluted basis. Operating income plus depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") during the quarter was $16.4 million. This compares to 2007 revenues of $50.0 million, net income of $6.4 million, or $0.08 and $0.06 per share on a basic and fully diluted basis, respectively, and EBITDA of $12.9 million. Earnings per share, was impacted by the increase in number of shares issued and outstanding on a quarter-over-quarter comparative basis.

At March 31, 2008, the Company had $17.4 million in cash. Long-term debt was $36.0 million at March 31, 2008, compared to $40.1 million at December 31, 2007. The Company ended the quarter with net debt of $49.2 million, compared to $48.6 million at the end of 2007. Expected operating cash flow in 2008, combined with the anticipated exercise of 17.7 million share purchase warrants generating approximately $43.0 million by July of this year, would allow the Company to retire its debt. As a result, the Company is well positioned with a strong and flexible balance sheet, which will enable it to pursue growth opportunities that will complement its strong organic growth profile.

During the first quarter of 2008, volumes at both divisions remained strong. Magnequench shipped a record 1,242MT in the first quarter, a 20% quarter-over-quarter increase. During the first quarter, Magnequench experienced the negative impact of rising cobalt prices. While the period's results showed quarter-over-quarter growth, Magnequench has implemented a price increase effective May 1, 2008 to offset our input costs.

The 20% increase in total volumes quarter over quarter is the result of continuing growth in volumes going into new applications. The 5% increase in sales volume over the fourth quarter of 2007 is particularly encouraging as the first quarter of the year has historically been a seasonally slow quarter for the Company.

Sales during the first quarter were strong at AMR Performance Materials primarily due to the continued strengthening of selling prices and a significant contribution from DAMR and JAMR, which operated at near capacity for most of the quarter. AMR Performance Materials shipped 2,156MT in the quarter, a 27% increase compared to the tonnage shipped in the same three-month period in 2007.

"I am extremely pleased with the Company's growth during a historically slow quarter. Both divisions continue to ship increased volumes and we are not seeing any indication of a slow-down," noted Constantine Karayannopoulos, President & CEO. "While we experienced a significant increase in the price of certain raw materials at Magnequench during the first quarter, we posted quarter-over-quarter EBITDA, net income and earnings per share growth and expect to see this trend continue in subsequent quarters. Based on the current business climate and market demand for its products, management continues to have a positive outlook."

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 34.516.728 von watts54 am 16.07.08 07:47:27Kaum bin ich mal in Urlaub gen Norden,schon schraubt sich der Kurs gen Sueden.Fundamental ist alles top.Hab nix gefunden,was belastend auf den Kurs drueckt.Denke die kommenden Zahlen werden belebende Wirkung zeigen und denjenigen Chancen eroeffnen die noch nicht dabei sind.Die Abgeltungssteuer wird kommen!:cool:
ich bin schon seit dem Anfang
in Frankfurt dabei einige Stück
zu kaufen. Beim tief habe ordentlich nachgekauft
und bin so bei über 120% im schnitt
Nach und nach kamen mal immer mal ein paar Nachrichten
(Filter für Rothmanns, Samsung, Übernahme) und so weiter.

Trotzdem kann man mit der Narichtenpolitik bei Neo
meines erachtens nicht zufrieden sein, da nie ein vernünftiger
Ausblick in die Zukunft gewährt wird. Man hängt irgentwie in der
Luft.

Was heute aber bei dem Marktumfeld besonders wichtig ist
sind gut informierte Anlager.

Deshalb geht der Kurs jetzt runter und wird sich nach den
Zahlen auch nicht wesentlich ändern.
Die Zahlen werden wie immer gut sein aber auch nicht über den Erwartungen liegen.
Hallo zusammen,
bin gerade erst auf NEO aufmerksam geworden.
Kann mir jemand sagen, ob NEO von der REE-Ausfuhrreduzierung in China betroffen ist.

Der Kursverlauf überrascht. Was Vladimir wohl dazu sagt, dass er
vor wenigen Wochen noch über 4 $ pro Share gezahlt hat?
http://canadianinsider.com/coReport/allTransactions.php?tick…
Für langfristig orientierte Investoren wohl eine Gelegenheit.

Nur meine Meinung
winorloose
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 34.673.395 von winorloose am 07.08.08 17:48:02Also ich bewahre eine ruhige Hand.Kaufe eher nach.Der Kursverlauf ueberrascht auch mich.Hier regiert der Herdentrieb in verkehrter Richtung.Die Zahlen waren bisher immer korrekt.Die Schulden bewegen sich gen null.Die seltenen Erden sind fuer die Grossabnehmer unverzichtbar.Es wird mehr davon gebraucht denn je.Darueber hinaus sind die Abbaurechte noch auf Jahre in China vertraglich gesichert.Im Nanobereich warte ich sehnlichst auf einen Durchbruch.Bin aber zuversichtlich.Schade nur,dass die Informationspolitik sehr duenn gesaet ist.Bin immer noch gern dabei.:)
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 34.679.755 von Aptamilla am 08.08.08 09:44:04:confused:
Warum und wer prügelt denn so kurz vor den Zahlen den Kurs runter??


Meine sind dafür nicht zu haben.

Schönes WE
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 34.686.913 von winorloose am 08.08.08 17:31:56Kleine Stueckzahlen lassen Kurse steigen oder purzeln.Fundamental ist alles top bei Neo.Organisches Wachstum und gute Geschaeftszahlen sind schon die Regel seit vielen Jahren.Die Kursabschlaege sind so unverstaendlich wie die Ankoppelung vom Gas zum Oel oder vom Huehnerei zum Ueberraschungsei!
So sieht's aus: Mehr Umsatz, mehr Einnahmen, mehr Gewinn, weniger Schulden, anhaltende Nachfrage nach den Produkten.

>>

TORONTO, Aug. 12 /CNW/ - Neo Material Technologies Inc. (TSX: NEM) (the
"Company") today reported its financial results for the three-month and
six-month periods ending June 30, 2008. Unless otherwise specified, all
currency amounts are expressed in U.S. dollars.
For the three-month period ended June 30, 2008, the Company reported
record revenues of $83.5 million and net income of $7.9 million, or $0.08 and
$0.07 per share on a basic and fully diluted basis, respectively. Operating
income plus depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") during the quarter was
$16.7 million. This compares to 2007 revenues of $61.5 million, net income of
$7.6 million, or $0.10 and $0.09 per share on a basic and fully diluted basis,
respectively, and EBITDA of $15.5 million. For the three months ended June 30,
2008 and 2007, the weighted average basic number of common shares outstanding
were 101,083,892 and 79,354,030, respectively.
For the six-month period ended June 30, 2008, the Company reported a 34%
increase in revenues to $148.9 million and net income of $16.2 million, or
$0.16 and $0.15 per share on basic and fully diluted basis, respectively.
EBITDA during the first half of the year amounted to $33.2 million. This
compares to 2007 six-month revenues of $111.5 million and net income, EBITDA
and earnings per share of $14.0 million, $28.4 million and $0.18 and $0.16 per
share on a basic and fully diluted basis, respectively. For the six months
ended June 30, 2008 and 2007, the weighted average basic number of common
shares outstanding were 99,997,457 and 79,255,574, respectively.
At June 30, 2008, the Company had $17.4 million in cash. Long-term debt
was $19.9 million at June 30, 2008, compared to $40.1 million at December 31,
2007. The $9.3 million obtained in the recent private placement (issued at
CDN$4.21 per common share) combined with the exercise of 1.21 million share
purchase warrants and the cash flow for the first six months of 2008 was used
to repay $21.2 million of long-term debt. Cash flow for the balance of 2008
and the anticipated exercise of 16.4 million share purchase warrants
generating approximately $40.7 million during the third quarter of this year,
should allow the Company to retire its debt. As a result, the Company is well
positioned with a strong and flexible balance sheet, which will enable it to
pursue growth opportunities that will complement its strong organic growth
profile.
During the second quarter of 2008, Magnequench shipped a record 1,404MT,
a 22% quarter-over-quarter increase. Magnequench sales were positively
affected by an acceleration of customer orders prior to the Beijing Olympics.
AMR Performance Materials shipped 2,271MT, a small 2% decline compared to the
tonnage shipped in the same three-month period in 2007.
Despite the challenging economic environment, the Company continues to
see strong demand for its products, in part because of their many
environmentally friendly applications. Neo powders assist in decreasing the
weight and improving the efficiency of a wide range of small motors. The
newest generation of energy efficient light bulbs and flat panel displays
utilize its rare earth products. The Company's research and development
program has a pipeline of promising applications to fuel future growth and
profitability.

"Our operational performance remained strong during the quarter while we
achieved yet another record volume sales quarter at our Magnequench division,"
noted Constantine Karayannopoulos, President & CEO. "We achieved strong
results in the face of export tax and raw material increases, inflationary
cost pressures as well as a strengthening of the Chinese Renminbi. We continue
to monitor global indicators, particularly in the United States, however, at
this time demand for our materials across all end markets is robust and we are
targeting additional new applications to further grow our business."
Based on the current business climate and demand for its products,
management continues to have a positive outlook for the remainder of 2008.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 34.714.277 von Aptamilla am 13.08.08 08:50:41Hallo,

ja mir bleibt auch nur Schulterzucken. Wahrscheinlich wird die
Aktie einfach langweilig mit den beständig steigenden
Ergebniszahlen. Die Nanophantasie bekommt keine neue
Nahrung, die Marktpositionierung kann noch nicht in Margen
umgesetzt werden.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 34.714.769 von winorloose am 13.08.08 09:41:57Kranker Akteinmarkt.Alles einfach unfassbar hier.Die Naegel stecken bei vielen so tief im Kopf.Geduld fuer die Investierten und Kopfschuetteln fuer die Zittrigen!
Krank sind vor allem die jenigen, die bei einem
solchen niedrigen Aktienkurs verkaufen, die
müssen nicht ganz dicht sein!
Da hat mal einer locker 980 000 Stk.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 34.728.242 von meeting am 14.08.08 15:57:12Kaum zu glauben dass jemand bereit ist bei diesen Kursen zu verkaufen.Das grenzt ja an akuten Geldmangel oder glatten Kopfschuss.Ich gebe kein Stueck her.Vielleicht steckt eine Uebernahme dahinter und ich bin dann nicht dabei.Wer weiss.Bei dem KGV bzw.den einhergehenden Gewinnmargen koennte ich mir auch eine Dividende vorstellen.Hoffe,dass der Vorstand jetzt auch mal reagiert!:mad:
Ein Kurs von 1,69 € rechtfertigt höchstens eine Insolvenz,
es ist nicht zu glauben.
Ich halte selbst einen doppelten Kurs von 3,38 € für absolut
unterbewertet.
Das ist die scheiße bei amerikanischen Aktien, dass man keine
Hintergrundgründe bekommt.

Jetzt ist es raus, unsere Gesellschaft macht ne

Ihr lest richtig.
Ich würd eine Kapitalerhöhung zu 3,50 $ verstehen,
aber zu 2,50 $, wird der Laden ja verramscht.

Wahrscheinlich bekommt die gesamte Erhöhung natürlich

Na, seid ihr alle noch da?Unser kleiner verwegener Haufen ist wohl in Lethargie verfallen,oder?:)Hab meine Frustphase mittlerweile überstanden.War ganz schön hart der Absturz von über drei bis gegenwärtig unter zwei Euro.Die Ursache liegt aber nicht bei diesem Unternehmen sondern eher am schwierigen Marktumfeld.Ist momentan allgemein Kaufstreik weil die verdammte Subprimekrise jeden kleinen Aufschwung niederknüppelt.Hoffe dieser Virus lässt die Märkte bald ruhen.Ich bleibe Optimist,so oder so!Gruss an alle Neofans
Ja man kann erstmal nur sprachlos zugucken, was die
"Nieten in Nadelstreifen" da so laufen lassen, selbst
unter Staatsaufsicht bei der KfW....
Aber gerade unter diesen Rahmenbedingungen haben die
Rohstoffe doch durch ihre pure Existenz ein besseres
Fundament, als unverständliche Zertifikate.
Der Pala Insider kauft auch bei diesen Kursen weiter.

Sind hier Banken drin???

Das nun Rohstoffe so fallen, obwohl physisch präsent? Dei

Neo Material's Magnequench enters JV with Toda Kogyo

2008-10-20 07:25 ET - News Release

Mr. Michael Doolan reports

NEO MATERIAL TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCES MAGNEQUENCH AND TODA KOGYO JOINT VENTURE

Neo Material Technologies Inc.'s Magnequench division has entered into a joint venture agreement with Toda Kogyo Corp. Under the terms of the agreement, Neo Material's Magnequench division will hold a 33-per-cent interest in the joint venture with Toda Kogyo holding the 67-per-cent balance. Based in Tianjin, China, the new entity, Toda Magnequench Magnetic Materials Co. Ltd., is expected to commence production of rare earth magnetic compounds for injection-moulded neo magnets during the fourth quarter of 2008.

With an initial 30 tons per month of production capacity, TMT's mission is to accelerate the growth of injection-moulded neo magnets used in automotive/electronic components and high-speed motors. The joint venture allows both parties to work directly with customers in high-growth areas in the automotive and electronics markets.

By combining Magnequench's stable supply and development capabilities for neo powders with the production technology of moulding materials and processes developed and owned by Toda Kogyo, TMT will enjoy a significant cost and technology advantage in the injection moulding magnetic compounds market. As a result, TMT will aggressively pursue growth opportunities in new applications in its target markets. Injection-moulded neo magnets provide the optimum solution in motor and sensor applications requiring superior magnetic performance coupled with ultimate customization for complex magnetic shapes.

About Toda Kogyo

Toda Kogyo is one of the most advanced Japanese producers of iron oxide particles which are essential raw materials, or integral components of industrial and consumer products. Toda Kogyo also produces neodymium-iron-boron-based compounds using Magnequench's Neo powders.

NEO MATERIAL TECHNOLOGIES REPORTS THIRD QUARTER 2008 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Neo Material Technologies Inc. has released its financial results for the three-month and nine-month periods ended Sept. 30, 2008. Unless otherwise specified, all currency amounts are expressed in United States dollars.

For the three-month period ended Sept. 30, 2008, the company reported revenues of $71.1-million and net income of $7.8-million, or seven cents per share, on a basic and fully diluted basis. Operating income plus depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) during the quarter was $13.9-million. This compares with 2007 revenues of $63.1-million, net income of $5.7-million, or six cents per share, on a basic and fully diluted basis, and EBITDA of $16.0-million. For the three months ended Sept. 30, 2008, and Sept. 30, 2007, the weighted average basic number of common shares outstanding was 108,355,862 and 100,842,340, respectively.

For the nine-month period ended Sept. 30, 2008, the company reported a 26-per-cent increase in revenues to $220.0-million and net income of $24.0-million, or 23 cents per share, on basic and fully diluted basis. EBITDA during the first nine months of the year amounted to $47.0-million. This compares with 2007 nine-month revenues of $174.6-million, and net income, EBITDA and earnings per share of $19.7-million, $44.5-million, and 24 cents and 23 cents per share on a basic and fully diluted basis, respectively. For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2008, and Sept. 30, 2007, the weighted average basic number of common shares outstanding was 103,582,325 and 90,606,096, respectively.

On Sept. 8, 2008, the company reported in Stockwatch that 17,581,800 of the corporation's warrants were exercised on or before the expiry date of Sept. 2, 2008, representing 99 per cent of the total warrants issued on Aug. 31, 2005, which were exercisable into common shares at $2.50 (Canadian) per share. The total proceeds from the exercise of the warrants was approximately $44.0-million (Canadian), of which $40.7-million (Canadian) was received during the third quarter of 2008. A portion of these proceeds was used to retire the long-term debt of the corporation.

At Sept. 30, 2008, the company had a record $47.0-million in cash. Long-term debt was reduced to nil as at Sept. 30, 2008, compared with $19.9-million at June 30, 2008. As a result, the company is well positioned with a strong and flexible balance sheet, which will enable it to weather the current economic environment and also pursue strategic growth opportunities that will complement its strong organic growth profile.

During the third quarter of 2008, Magnequench shipped 1,178 million tonnes, a 7-per-cent, quarter-over-quarter increase. Volume shipped at Magnequench increased on a quarter-over-quarter basis despite a shift in sales from the third quarter to the second quarter prior to the Beijing Olympics. AMR Performance Materials shipped 1,825 million tonnes, a small 3-per-cent decline compared with the tonnage shipped in the same three-month period in 2007. However, due to gross margin compression, there was a more pronounced decline in operating income. During the quarter, selling prices of selected rare earth products declined with immediate effect to gross margin. Also, during the quarter, raw material costs declined; however the effect of this on product costs will not take effect until the fourth quarter. Third quarter operating income was negatively affected by this timing difference.

"Looking ahead, we have tempered our short-term sales expectations but look for strong demand for our Neo powders and rare earth products to return around the middle of 2009. Neo Material Technologies is extremely well positioned to weather the current economic climate with very low debt, substantial cash, solid customer relationships, innovative technology and a leading position in its chosen markets," noted Constantine Karayannopoulos, president and chief executive officer.

Teleconference call

Management will host a teleconference call on Friday, Nov. 7, 2008, at 10 a.m. (Eastern Time) to discuss these results. Interested parties may access the teleconference by calling 416-915-5762 (local) or 800-796-7558 (toll-free, long-distance).

Neo Material arranges 9.44-million-share buyback


2008-11-06 19:43 ET - News Release

Mr. Michael Doolan reports

NEO MATERIAL TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCES NORMAL COURSE ISSUER BID

The Toronto Stock Exchange has accepted a notice filed by Neo Material Technologies Inc. of its intention to make a normal course issuer bid.

The notice provides that Neo may, during the 12-month period commencing Nov. 11, 2008, and ending Nov. 10, 2009, purchase on the TSX up to 9,446,099 common shares in total, being approximately 10 per cent of the public float (common shares not held by insiders or related parties). The price which Neo will pay for any such shares will be the market price at the time of acquisition. The actual number of common shares which may be purchased pursuant to the bid and the timing of any such purchases will be determined by management of Neo. As at Oct. 31, 2008, there were approximately 118,794,314 common shares outstanding. The average daily trading volume (ADTV) of common shares for the most recently completed six calendar months is 572,812. All common shares purchased pursuant to the bid will be purchased for cancellation and all such purchases will be made on the open market through the facilities of the TSX.

Neo did not make any normal course issuer bid purchases during the 12 months preceding the date of the notice filed with the TSX.

Neo believes that its common shares have been trading in a price range which does not adequately reflect the value of such shares in relation to the business of Neo and its future business prospects. As a result, depending upon future price movements and other factors, Neo believes that its outstanding common shares may represent an attractive investment to Neo. Furthermore, the purchases are expected to benefit all persons who continue to hold common shares by increasing their equity interest in Neo.

Neo Material enters automatic share purchase plan


2009-01-12 17:15 ET - News Release

Mr. Michael Doolan reports

NEO MATERIAL TECHNOLOGIES INC. ENTERS INTO AUTOMATIC SHARE PURCHASE PLAN

Further to its news in Stockwatch on Nov. 6, 2008, about the commencement of a normal course issuer bid (NCIB), Neo Material Technologies Inc. has entered into a predefined plan with its designated broker to allow for the repurchase of shares at times up to March 16, 2009, pursuant to its NCIB, when Neo would ordinarily not be permitted to repurchase shares in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods, insider trading rules or otherwise. Subject to certain parameters and restrictions, Neo's broker may repurchase shares under the automatic purchase plan during the times referred to above, provided that the broker is not, at such times, in possession of undisclosed material information about the company.

Management and the board of directors believe that the NCIB is in the best interest of Neo's shareholders and that the NCIB constitutes a desirable use of the company's funds. At Sept. 30, 2008, the company had cash totalling $47.0-million, compared with $17.2-million at Dec. 31, 2007, and no long-term debt.

Neo Material investor Pala wants to double shareholding

2009-02-09 16:15 ET - News Release

Mr. Michael Doolan reports

Neo Material Technologies Inc. was today notified by press release issued by Pala Investments Holdings Limited, and which was followed by a letter delivered to the company, whereby Pala states its intention to make a partial offer to acquire up to an additional 23 million common shares in the capital of the company. Such an offer would represent an acquisition of an additional 20 per cent of the common shares in the capital of the company and, based on the company's information, if completed, would bring Pala's total ownership interest to approximately 40 per cent of the issued and outstanding common shares in the capital of the company.

As referenced in Pala's press release, the company has a shareholder rights plan in place. In its letter, Pala has requested that certain provisions of the rights plan be waived so that its potential partial bid will constitute a permitted bid under the terms of the rights plan.

A special committee composed entirely of independent directors will review and consider this request with the assistance of financial and legal advisers.

Neo Material Technologies' Board Unanimously Recommends That Shareholders REJECT Pala's Unsolicited Partial Offer
Tuesday, March 10, 2009 5:00 PM
Symbols: NEM

TORONTO, March 10 /CNW/ - Neo Material Technologies Inc. ("Neo" or the "Company", TSX: NEM) announces that the board of directors of the Company (the "Board"), acting on the unanimous recommendation of its special committee of independent directors:

- unanimously determined that the unsolicited offer (the "Pala Partial
Offer") by an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Pala Investments
Holdings Limited ("Pala") to purchase up to a maximum of 23 million
common shares of the Company at a price of Cdn$1.40 per share is
INADEQUATE from a financial point of view to the shareholders of Neo
(other than Pala) and unanimously recommends that Neo Shareholders
REJECT the Pala Partial Offer and NOT tender their shares to the Pala
Partial Offer; and
- unanimously recommends, in respect of any shares that may already
have been tendered to the Pala Partial Offer, that such shares be
WITHDRAWN.
See "No Need for Immediate Action" below.
Reasons for Rejection
After careful consideration and consultation with its legal and financial
advisors, the Board believes that the Pala Partial Offer is inadequate from a
financial point of view, to Neo Shareholders (other than Pala) and recommends
that Neo Shareholders REJECT the Pala Partial Offer and NOT tender their
shares for the following reasons, among others:
- GMP Securities, the Board and special committee's financial advisor,
has delivered an opinion that the consideration offered pursuant to
the Pala Partial Offer is inadequate, from a financial point of view,
to Neo Shareholders other than Pala.
- The Pala Partial Offer seeks to provide Pala with effective control
over Neo without an appropriate premium being paid for that control,
and no premium being paid for those shares that will not be
purchased.
- The Pala Partial Offer is, by its nature, coercive and if successful,
tendering Neo Shareholders will only be able to sell as little as 25%
of their shares and at most 50% of their shares.
- If successful, the Pala Partial Offer will have an adverse effect on
the liquidity of the shares, which may in turn have a negative impact
on the trading price of the shares.
- The Pala Partial Offer does not reflect Neo's strong financial
position, the value of Neo's recent strategic initiatives and Neo's
future growth and acquisition opportunities. As at January 31, 2009
Neo had a positive cash balance of US$50.4 million (US$0.44/share or
C$0.56/share).
- Pala has acknowledged that Neo's management has done an excellent job
in creating a company with the potential for growth over the longer-
term. However, if the Pala Partial Offer is successful, Neo risks
losing certain key management personnel which would adversely affect
the Company's government, business, joint venture and client
relationships in its principal manufacturing and marketing regions,
namely China, Thailand and Japan. It would also deprive Neo of such
management's intellectual and operational expertise, which is at the
core of Neo's competitive advantage and success.
- The Pala Partial Offer is opportunistically timed to take advantage
of a recent period during which share prices generally, including
those of specialty materials and metals companies, have declined as a
result of the current global economic crisis.
Directors' Circular

The Board's recommendation, as well as a detailed discussion of its reasons for rejection of the Pala Partial Offer, are contained in a circular prepared by the Board dated March 9, 2009 (the "Directors' Circular") filed today with Canadian securities regulatory authorities. The Directors' Circular will be available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and is being mailed to Neo Shareholders. Neo Shareholders are urged to read the Directors' Circular in its entirety.

No Need for Immediate Action

Neo Shareholders need not tender to the Pala Partial Offer until after the April 27, 2009 initial expiry date. If more than 50% of outstanding shares held by Neo Shareholders other than Pala have been tendered to the Pala Partial Offer and not withdrawn at its expiry time on April 27, 2009, the Pala Partial Offer is required to remain open for deposits and tenders of shares for not less than 10 days (the "Subsequent Offering Period") from the date of the announcement by Pala of such Subsequent Offering Period. The Subsequent Offering Period will provide any Neo Shareholder who is considering whether or not to accept the Pala Partial Offer with a sufficient amount of time to tender any of his or her shares after the results of the upcoming annual and special meeting of Neo Shareholders scheduled for April 24, 2009 are known. At the meeting, Neo Shareholders will be asked to approve the Company's new rights plan, under which the Pala Partial Offer does not constitute a "Permitted Bid". The Board strongly recommends that Neo Shareholders wait until after the upcoming annual and special meeting of Neo Shareholders, before considering whether or not to tender any of their shares.

NEO MATERIAL TECHNOLOGIES REPORTS REVENUE GROWTH AND STRONG CASH FLOW FOR THE YEAR DESPITE A CHALLENGING FOURTH QUARTER

Neo Material Technologies Inc. has released its financial results for the three-month and 12-month periods ending Dec. 31, 2008. Unless otherwise specified, all currency amounts are expressed in U.S. dollars.

For the year ended Dec. 31, 2008, the company reported increased revenues of $266.6-million and net income of $23.3-million, or 22 cents per share on a basic and fully diluted basis. Operating income plus depreciation and amortization for the year was $48.8-million. This compares with 2007 revenues of $240.5-million, net income of $28.2-million, or 32 cents and 30 cents per share on a basic and fully diluted basis, respectively, and operating income plus depreciation and amortization of $61.6-million. The reduction in operating income plus depreciation and amortization, and net earnings was most notable in the fourth quarter of 2008 and due primarily to the global recession resulting in a decline in demand for the company's products.

Neo Material, NIDEC to develop motors using Neo powders

2009-03-31 09:47 ET - News Release

Mr. Michael Doolan reports

NEO MATERIAL TECHNOLOGIES' MAGNEQUENCH DIVISION AND NIDEC CORPORATION SIGN JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND PATENT COMPLIANCE AGREEMENTS

Neo Material Technologies Inc.'s Magnequench division has further strengthened its strategic relationship with NIDEC Corp., a major Japanese micromotor manufacturer, by signing two key agreements. The first agreement (joint development agreement) will allow both companies to develop NIDEC's energy-efficient motor line employing magnets made with Neo powders. Under the second agreement, NIDEC will participate in Magnequench's patent compliance program through July, 2014.

NIDEC is the largest user of bonded neo magnets made from Magnequench's Neo powders. While it has an estimated market share of over 70 per cent in hard disk drive (HDD) spindle motors and over 60 per cent in optical disk drive (ODD) spindle motors, both of which employ bonded neo magnets, the majority of NIDEC's other motor applications use weaker iron-based ferrite magnets. NIDEC would like to expand its use of bonded neo magnets to other motor applications, as these magnets enable motors to become smaller, lighter and more energy efficient.

NIDEC would like to expand its use of bonded neo magnets to other motor applications, as these magnets enable motors to become smaller, lighter and more energy efficient.

Both companies will collaboratively develop the necessary motor specifications and replace ferrite-based motor applications by sharing expertise that can be used to identify applications where the improved magnetic properties of bonded neo magnets would be more energy efficient. Initial target "ferrite replacement" applications include office automation, automotive accessory motors as well as fan motors. The new motors are intended to augment NIDEC's high-end product portfolio, while expanding the use of Magnequench's Neo powders.

In addition to the joint development agreement, NIDEC has also formally agreed to participate in the program through July, 2014. Prior to reaching this agreement, NIDEC and Magnequench had been working together to prevent the use of unlicensed Neo powders in NIDEC's products on an ad hoc basis. This agreement, covering all of NIDEC's product lines using Neo powders, serves to formalize its co-operation.

"Our joint development program will benefit both NIDEC and NEM through the accelerated development of more energy-efficient neo motors and the more effective replacement of ferrite motors," noted Constantine Karayannopoulos, president and chief executive officer. "Furthermore, as the largest user of bonded neo magnets, NIDEC's commitment to support NEM's patent infringement program, positions us extremely well to enforce our patents and to minimize and eliminate attempts to infringe on our products."

The program in place has proven to be extremely effective in reducing the amount of unlicensed Neo powder used in the marketplace. As part of the program, participating companies submit products containing magnetic material to Magnequench. A test is then performed on the material to determine if it is made from an unlicensed source.

Magnequench is working with other companies to ensure broad sampling from all major users of bonded neo magnets, as necessary.

So, vor allem in den Patenten steckt wohl noch Musik...

NEO MATERIAL TECHNOLOGIES SIGNS DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT FOR BRAZILIAN RARE EARTH DEPOSIT

Neo Material Technologies Inc. has signed an agreement with Mineracao Taboca S.A. (Taboca), the Brazilian-based tin mining and processing subsidiary of Minsur S.A., the Peruvian privately owned mining company.

Under the terms of the agreement, Neo will have exclusive access for two years to Taboca's Pitinga tin mine located in the state of Amazonas, Brazil, for the purpose of investigating the potential to commercially produce a heavy rare earth concentrate. Pitinga produces primarily a tin (cassiterite) concentrate as well as a niobium/tantalum (columbite/tantalite) ferro alloy. Based upon work done to date by Taboca and Neo, the tailings that have been produced and accumulated at the mine as well as the yet-to-be-mined resource, appear to contain attractive quantities, concentrations and distribution of heavy rare earths. In addition to a sampling program throughout the resource, the project will aim to determine the optimal process to produce a commercial rare earth concentrate, suitable for further processing by standard rare earth separation/purification plants. The sampling and drilling operations will provide material for an extensive ore beneficiation and hydrometallurgical testing program.

Early indications are that appreciable and possibly commercially attractive concentrations of heavy rare earths in the form of xenotime, and possibly other mineral forms, exist in the tailings and/or the reserves. Xenotime is a heavy mineral, consisting of predominantly yttrium phosphate but also containing other heavy rare earths. Heavy rare earths typically command higher prices than light rare earth elements, and are in higher demand, in applications such as energy-efficient lighting, display panels, electronic ceramic chips and high-performance magnets for hybrid electric vehicle motors. In addition, as part of the agreement, Taboca has granted Neo a right of first refusal for the commercialization of the Pitinga rare earths.

"This development is in line with our strategy to diversify our access to key raw materials and meets a number of Neo's criteria and objectives in our search to secure additional sources of rare earths. In addition to its current products, Pitinga could also incrementally produce concentrates of heavy rare earths on a byproduct basis. One of the exciting aspects of what we have identified so far is that this resource is unusually rich in dysprosium and terbium, two very important, rare and high value heavy rare earth elements," noted Constantine Karayannopoulos, president and chief executive officer. "We look forward to working closely with Taboca in continuing our joint efforts to commercialize the Pitinga rare earths resource."

Ist ja auch nicht schlecht, mit Pala einen ambitionierten Investor
an Bord zu haben. Ich kann ihm den Versuch nicht verdenken, in
diesen Zeiten
günstig aufzustocken (und für sich selbst zu verbilligen).

Schönes WE

Neo Material to oppose poison pill cease trade

2009-04-17 12:41 ET - News Release

An anonymous director reports

NEO MATERIAL TECHNOLOGIES TO OPPOSE PALA'S APPLICATION TO THE OSC

Neo Material Technologies Inc. intends to oppose Pala Investments Holdings Ltd.'s application to the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) for a cease trade order against Neo's existing shareholder rights plan and the new shareholder rights plan.

Pala's unsolicited partial offer, which seeks to increase Pala's share ownership in Neo to approximately 41 per cent, would, if successful, provide Pala with effective control over Neo without paying an appropriate premium for that control. The Pala partial offer price of $1.40 per share, among other things, fails to take into account the value of Neo's recent strategic initiatives and Neo's future growth and acquisition opportunities. The closing price of Neo's shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange on April 16, 2009, was $1.44, and the current trading price is over $1.50.

Neo's special committee considers Pala's recent public announcements, which attempt to discredit Neo's management and the company's business strategy, to be misleading, self-serving and in contradiction to prior statements of praise for Neo's management and its performance. In Pala's offer circular, it praised Neo's management for doing "an excellent job in creating a company with the potential for growth over the long term." Similarly, Pala has indicated several times that its goal is to be a long-term investor in Neo. In Pala's recent application to the OSC, it has criticized the board of directors for not seeking a bona fide bidder for the company, which makes it clear that their objectives are short term in nature and that they have no real interest in the success of the company.

In evaluating the Pala partial offer as well as the new rights plan, shareholders should consider Pala's record of investing in Canadian public companies. Pala, a company indirectly owned by Vladimir Iorich, has increasingly taken on an activist role in its equity investments. Coalcorp Mining Inc. and Rockwell Diamonds Inc. are two recent Pala investments where Pala has failed to support management or the respective companies or add any strategic value.

Based on publicly available information, as of the date hereof, the share prices of Coalcorp and Rockwell Diamonds have declined by approximately 88 per cent and 82 per cent, respectively, since Pala announced its increased shareholdings above 40 per cent (in the case of Coalcorp), and launched an offer to shareholders (in the case of Rockwell Diamonds). Moreover, since increasing its ownership in Coalcorp, 13 directors have resigned from Coalcorp's board and a number of senior executives have resigned or have had their employment terminated.

Neo's ability to maintain strategic relationships in its principal manufacturing and marketing regions, namely China, Thailand, Japan and most recently, Brazil, and to realize its business plan are dependent on the management team. A repeat of Pala's "Coalcorp experience" could have devastating effects on Neo's business and shareholder value.

The special committee, and its financial and legal advisers, have reviewed Pala's application to the OSC, as well as other information recently published by Pala, and have found it to contain many inaccuracies, inconsistencies and omissions. For example, the existence of change of control provisions in the employment agreements of Neo's executive officers was known to Pala prior to the launch of its partial offer and these provisions were in existence well before Pala first became an investor in Neo. Also, Pala's assertion that management has not taken any steps to increase shareholder value is entirely inaccurate. For example, Neo recently signed an exclusive development agreement with Mineraco Taboca SA with respect to rare earth deposits in the state of Amazonas, Brazil. The joint development agreement and the patent compliance program between Neo's Magnequench division and NIDEC Corp., the largest Japanese micro-motor manufacturer, are other recent examples of Neo management increasing shareholder value through strategic initiatives.

The Pala partial offer, by its very nature, affects all shareholders, regardless of whether or not they tender their shares. If the Pala partial offer is successful, shareholders will, in all circumstances, retain less-liquid, minority-discounted shares in a company effectively controlled by Pala.

Pala made its initial investment in Neo in July, 2007, with full knowledge of the rights plan, which was approved by shareholders in 2004, and later ratified by approximately 90 per cent of the votes cast by shareholders at the annual meeting in April, 2007. The Pala partial offer has been structured to comply with the "permitted bid" provisions of the rights plan. The special committee believes that Pala's application to the OSC to cease trade the rights plan is inappropriate in light of such circumstances.

The new rights plan is being submitted to shareholders for approval at the company's upcoming annual and special meeting on April 24, 2009. In the context of Pala's conduct and the coercive nature of the Pala partial offer, the special committee believes that the new rights plan is important to protect shareholders from bids such as Pala's and its adoption is at the discretion of shareholders. Neo shareholders have the opportunity to consider whether or not to ratify the new rights plan and tender to the Pala partial offer. In the circumstances, the basis for Pala's application to the OSC is unclear and the application will be opposed by Neo.

Directors' circular

Neo's board of directors' recommendation to reject the Pala partial offer, as well as a detailed discussion of its reasons for rejection, are contained in a circular prepared by the board dated March 9, 2009, filed with Canadian securities regulatory authorities. The directors' circular is available on the company's website or on SEDAR. It was mailed to Neo's shareholders on March 10, 2009, and shareholders are urged to read the directors' circular in its entirety.

Hat wirklich einer 16 Stk. in Frankfurt
gekauft. Wahnsinn!!!:laugh::laugh:
Angebot wurde auf Can$ 1,7 erhöht!

Aus meiner Sicht nach wie vor viel zu wenig.

lg
Pala ist mal ganz gross über 4 CAD
eingestiegen. Jetzt hebt er den
Preis leicht an um seine Verluste zu
verringern.

Ich finde diese Strategie ist legitim.

Jetzt kommt es nur darauf an, ob wir
als Anleger an die Technologie bei Neo
glauben.

Das gute ist das die Nachrichtenlage
sich auch verbessert hat.

Ich für mein Teil glaube an die
Geschäfte und das jetzige Managment bei NEO.

Geht auch an Neo nicht vorbei:mad:
NEO MATERIAL TECHNOLOGIES REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 2009 RESULTS

Neo Material Technologies Inc. has released its financial results for the three-month period ending March 31, 2009. Unless otherwise specified, all currency amounts are expressed in U.S. dollars.

The company is not immune to the global economic recession and its overall results in the first quarter of 2009 were significantly lower than the comparable period in 2008. Despite these results, the company continued to generate positive cash flow from operations. For the three-month period ended March 31, 2009, revenues decreased sharply to $28.8-million with a resulting net loss of $4.4-million, or four cents per share on a basic and fully diluted basis. Operating income plus depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) during the quarter was negative $2.6-million. Revenues, net income, EBITDA and earnings per share (on a basic and fully diluted basis) for the three-month period ended March 31, 2008, were $65.5-million, $8.3-million, $16.4-million and eight cents, respectively. Operating loss for the first quarter of 2009 was $5.2-million, compared with operating income of $13.5-million in the corresponding period in 2008. Overall results suffered due to significantly lower product demand and weak rare earth product pricing, both of which impacted sales levels and sales margins.

Included in the first quarter results were $1.1-million of expenses related exclusively to the analysis and response to the Pala partial offer. The company continues to incur additional expenses related to the Pala partial offer in the second quarter of 2009.

"We are seeing signs of a recovery of demand in important end markets such as consumer electronics during the second quarter which we expect will lead to stronger corporate performance for the balance of the year," noted Constantine Karayannopoulos, president and chief executive officer. "During the downturn in the worldwide economy, we have continued to invest in new product development and have announced important corporate developments in both Asia and South America. We are well positioned, due to our excellent customer relationships, unique technology portfolio and strong financial position, to benefit from the anticipated recovery in world demand and to resume long-term revenue and profit growth of Neo."

The company had no long-term debt and a significant cash position of $49.1-million at March 31, 2009. Also during this period, the company repaid $5.3-million of short-term debt and the company's net cash position increased to $41.4-million from $38.5-million at Dec. 31, 2008.

Teleconference call

Management will host a teleconference call on Monday, May 11, 2009, at 10 a.m. ET to discuss these results.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 37.142.533 von meeting am 11.05.09 11:13:16Das war irgendwie logisch,dass Neo als Zulieferer in diesen Zeiten mit in die Verlustzone rutscht.Die Zahlen sind aber überschaubar und keinesfalls besorgniserregend.Vielmehr sehe ich eine sukzessive Erholung und positive Kooperationen mit Wert bei diesem Unternehmen.Eins ist aber noch klar!Pala wird von mir nicht mit Aktien angedient!:cool:
