Die Zi Corporation erstellt Technologien und Software zum Lesen und Schreiben von chinesischen, japanischen und koreanischen Buchstaben, die in E-Mails, im Internet, von Pagern, Mobiltelefonen, interaktiven Fernsehgeräte-Boxen und ähnliche Anwendungen verwendet werden können.

Folgender, allerdings schon älterer, Handelsblatt-Beitrag beschreibt die Thematik ausführlicher:

Kanadisches Unternehmen entwickelt Software

Handys, Fernseher und Computer lernen Chinesisch



HANDELSBLATT, 03. Januar 2000



erm STUTTGART. „Alle sprechen von E-Commerce in China“, sagt Frank Chen. Noch aber stehen E-Commerce-Anbieter vor einer gewaltigen Barriere: Die Eingabeverfahren für Chinas Zeichenschrift sind zu kompliziert. „Deshalb sind auch Computer so wenig verbreitet." Nicht finanzielle, sondern kulturelle, genauer gesagt sprachliche Gründe trennen Anbieter von den potentiell 1,3 Milliarden E-Commerce-Kunden. Eingabeverfahren, die auf einer lateinischen Umschrift, dem in der Volksrepublik offiziellen Hanyu Pinyin, basieren, erfordern die Kenntnis eines fremden Alphabets.

Chens Zi Corporation – Zi steht für Schriftzeichen – glaubt mit ihrem Eingabeverfahren, den Schlüssel zu Chinas Wohnzimmern gefunden zu haben. Mit nur acht Basis-Strichen lassen sich bis zu 40 000 Schriftzeichen generieren.

Das Besondere an der Software, in deren Entwicklung das in Hongkong, Peking und San Francisco vertretene Unternehmen (Nasdaq Zica, Toronto Stock Index Zic) in den letzten sechs Jahren investiert hat: Die komplizierten Zeichen müssen nicht bis zum letzten Strich über die Tastatur eingegeben werden. Vielmehr macht das System schon ab dem ersten Strich Vorschläge, basierend auf linguistischen Häufigkeitsanalysen. Für ein Zeichen, das klassischerweise in 17 Schritten aufs Papier gepinselt wird, braucht ein mit Zi-Software bestücktes Handy, ein PDA oder eine Set-Top-Box nur halb so viele Eingabeschritte. Mit wachsendem Kontext nimmt die Treffergenauigkeit der Vorhersagen sogar noch zu. Einzige Voraussetzung: Die Reihenfolge der Einzelstriche muss der standardisierten Schreibweise entsprechen.

Zis Einstiegsprodukt war das chinesische Mailprogramm Zi-Mail, mit dem das Unternehmen 1997 den Sprung von Hongkong aufs Festland schaffte. Der Direktvertrieb zahlte sich nicht aus. Mit der Entwicklung der Zi-Software für beliebige Plattformen und dem Verkauf von Lizenzen gelang es aber 1999 wichtige Partner für den chinesischen Markt zu gewinnen. Chinas Computerhersteller Legend gehört ebenso dazu wie Ericsson, verschiedene chinesische Ministerien, darunter das Erziehungsministerium und das Ministerium für Informationsindustrie. Der Aktienkurs machte danach in diesem Herbst einen großen Satz.

Mit der Verbreitung von Breitband-Internet-Zugängen und mobilen Geräten, die nach und nach internetfähig werden, könnte die Nachfrage nach Zis intuitiver Sprachsoftware noch wachsen. Im Rennen um die Lizenznehmer hat Zi mit der amerikanischen Tegic Communications, die gerade eine verbesserte Version eines ähnlichen Eingabesystems für Chinesisch angekündigt hat, einen mächtigen Konkurrenten. Zis Patentverfahren gegen die Amerikaner ist bislang erfolglos verlaufen.

Nun wendet sich Zi auch an den noch härter umkämpften europäischen Markt, auf dem Tegics T9-System bereits gut etabliert ist. Zis Ezitext wird inzwischen ebenfalls für 13 verschiedene Sprachen angeboten. Ende Oktober verkündete Zi eine Kooperation mit der französischen Alcatel.

( BW)(ZI-CORPORATION)(ZICA)(ZIC.TO) Zi Corporation Announces ExpandedAsian Presence With New ODM Deals

Business Editors

CALGARY, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 6, 2004--


Three New License Agreements Broaden eZiText(R) Availability in Booming Chinese Market

Zi Corporation (NASDAQ: ZICA) (TSX: ZIC), a leading provider ofintelligent interface solutions, has strengthened its position in thebooming Chinese wireless handset market with three more licensingagreements for its user-friendly eZiText(R) predictive text inputtechnology. The three new Asian eZiText licensees, AnyDATA MobileCommunication Technology (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., Unirise CommunicationCo., Ltd., and Ya Hsin Industrial Co., Ltd., are all fast-growingoriginal design manufacturers (ODMs), the first based in China, theother two in Taiwan. All three are initially planning to launcheZiText-powered phones in China that, according to the China Ministryof Information, is the world´s largest and fastest growing wirelessmarket with the number of wireless subscribers in use reaching 315million through August 2004.

Under the terms of these new Asian agreements each ODM has licensed Zi´s eZiText technology for Simplified and Traditional Chinese, English and a variety of other languages. To date, Zi has over 100 licensing agreements with original design and equipment manufacturers worldwide. The three new licensees are expected to begin deliveries of eZiText product in 2005.

Noting the recent Chinese Ministry of Information Industry forecast that the number of Chinese mobile phone users would reach 350 million in 2005, Zi Corporation senior vice president of global sales and marketing Glen Morgan said "Asia in general, and China in particular, are of tremendous strategic importance to Zi Corporation. The current growth of wireless handset sales and service uptake in these markets is unprecedented. Lower cost, faster time to market and other efficiencies mean that the ODM channel is rapidly expanding and capturing a bigger slice of the manufacturing business. These new agreements only reinforce our leadership in this very dynamic Chinese market.

"These new licensees selected Zi because of the easy to use features built into eZiText, the quality of our technology and the local support we provide to our customers. The selection of Zi underscores our belief that manufacturers focused on the Chinese market prefer eZiText for Chinese text input" added Morgan.

In diesem Zusammenhang wundert mich immer wieder, daß sich die User hier im Forum viel intensiver mit Werten befassen,
die auf der Verliererseite sind (in der Hoffnung auf eine Trendwende), statt sich mit Aktien zu beschäftigen, die eine Turnaround-Chance versprechen.

+ 55,35 % gibt es auch wieder nicht.


Eigentlich müßte es noch viele TAIPAN-Leser geben, die erlebt haben, wie die Empfehlung dieses Börsenbriefes
ZI Corp Kurse von rund 40 € erreichte.


Nach einem 52 Wochen Tief von 1,96 USD erreichte die Aktie
heute wieder einen Kurs von 3,82 USD (Schlußkurs 3,80 USD)

Die Frage ist natürlich, wie es weitergeht.

Kann Zi Corp mit ihrem Patent vom China Boom profitieren und weiterhin eine überdurchschnittliche Performance erzielen? Oder sollte man besser Kursgewinne
realisieren?


Meinungen?
Danke! War nur eine kleine Position. Habe heute bei 3,15 € verkauft.

hallo curacanne,

Zi Corp hat sich gestern gegen den Trend recht stabil gehalten.

Sieht so aus, als wenn noch mehr drin wäre.
50 % Plus ist aber auch nicht von schlechten Eltern.
Die Aktie schwankte bisher recht stark.

In letzter Zeit kamen einige positive Meldungen zusammen.
Deshalb rückte Zi Corp auch stärker als bisher ins Rampenlicht. Die Umsätze sind für diesen Wert deutlich angezogen.
Nach einer scharfen Korrektur tut sich wieder was bei
Zi Corp

CALGARY, ALBERTA, Dec 22, 2004 (CCNMatthews via COMTEX) -- Zi Corporation (ZICA) (CA:ZIC) , a leading provider of intelligent interface solutions, announced today that Nokia has licensed its eZiText(R) predictive text input technology.

Zi`s user-friendly text input system, eZiText, enables handset manufacturers to provide end users with easy-to-use text input experiences on mobile phones. eZiText provides faster and personalized text entry through truly predictive one-touch entry and word completion, coupled with the ability to learn from a user`s usage patterns and behavior.

Glückwunsch an alle, die noch investiert sind!

Die Nokia-Lizenz allein kann m.E. allerdings nicht der alleinige Grund für die seit Tagen laufende Kursexplosion sein; denn dann müßte man Insiderhandel vermuten.

Möglich, daß da jemand an einer Übernahme oder Beteiligung bastelt oder daß Fonds eingestiegen sind. Es war ja auch kaum zu verstehen, daß Zi Corp bei diesem China-Boom derart zurückblieb. Jetzt findet der Wert die gebührende Beachtung.

Auch hier im Forum wollte ja von Zi Corp kaum jemand etwas wissen.

Zi Corp.: Aktie nach Nokia-Auftrag um 20 Prozent im Plus

Zi Corp. (Nasdaq: ZICA, WKN: 894201): Die Aktie des kanadischen Netz-Technologie Spezialisten Zi Corp. gehört heute zu den großen Gewinnern an der Wall Street in New York. Die Ursache für den Anstieg im zweistelligen Prozentbereich ist darin zu suchen, dass Nokia eine Lizenz des Unternehmens erworben hat.
Dabei handelt es sich um die eZiText Text-Input Technologie. Durch den Erwerb der Lizenz für dieses Produkt ist Nokia in der Lage, seinen Kunden Handys anzubieten, die sehr einfach zu handhaben sind. eZiText ermöglicht die Personalisierung der Mobilfunkgeräte. So ist es mit Hilfe der intelligenten Software z.B. möglich, die Geräte auf die individuellen Gebrauchsgewohnheiten der User abzustimmen. Das Handy lernt quasi, wie der Nutzer mit ihm umgeht.

Die Aktie von Zi Corp. konnte heute im bisherigen Handelsverlauf in New York um 20.94 Prozent an Wert hinzugewinnen und notiert damit momentan bei 6.41 US-Dollar. (dbr)
110 % steuerfreien gewinn bis jetzt, alles spricht dafür , daß die aktie einen deutlichen aufwärtstrend hat.

Zi Corporation Completes Acquisition of Assets of Decuma AB of Sweden January 26 2:30pm

http://www.pinksheets.com/quote/news.jsp?url=fis_story.asp%3… Ccc%5C2005%5C01%5C26%5C41325460.html%26clientid%3D168%26provider%3DCANADIAN_CORP ORATE_NEWS&symbol=ZICA
Zi Corporation Completes Acquisition of Assets of Decuma AB of Sweden

CALGARY, ALBERTA and LUND, SWEDEN, Jan 26, 2005 (CCNMatthews via COMTEX) -- Handwriting Recognition Solution Expands Zi`s Suite of Intelligent Interface Technologies
Zi Corporation (Nasdaq:ZICA)(TSX:ZIC), a leading provider of intelligent interface solutions, announced today that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of assets from handwriting recognition software specialists Decuma AB of Lund, Sweden. As part of the acquisition, Zi has acquired the intellectual property and customer agreements of privately held Decuma AB. The purchase price was approximately US$1.0 million paid in newly issued shares of Zi Corporation common stock.

Commenting on the acquisition, Zi Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer Michael D. Donnell emphasized the importance of the Decuma purchase for Zi`s long term expansion plans. "Our strategy of developing software to further simplify and enhance the use of wireless devices will be significantly strengthened by this acquisition.

"Decuma`s handwriting recognition technology will be an important complement to Zi`s market-leading eZiText(R) and eZiTap(TM) solutions. We are convinced that the combination of the technologies will further bolster our competitive advantage and increase our market share by enabling us to deliver an expanded suite of innovative products to customers," added Donnell.

The use of handwriting as an interface on a mobile device such as a PDA or mobile phone is becoming increasingly important with the evolution to 3G multimedia applications and services. The handwriting recognition software created by Decuma, with its patented Geometrical Invariant Technology (GIT), has the ability to recognize an individual`s unique writing style. Other handwriting recognition technologies currently on the market are based on a simplified, one stroke alphabet. The Decuma(R) solution uses a radically different approach that recognizes the different ways in which people write.

Research by Decuma revealed that writing styles were markedly different between Europe, the Americas and Asia. The Decuma solution enables people to write as they normally would using pen and paper. This is an important breakthrough in normalizing handwriting as a user interface. Decuma technology also enables the implementation of handwriting recognition in character-based languages such as Chinese and Japanese.

The Decuma product portfolio is comprised of three handwriting recognition software products: Decuma alphabetic, for English, French, Spanish, German, Italian and other western languages; Decuma Chinese for Simplified and Traditional Chinese; and Decuma Japanese, which supports Kanji, Hiragana, Katakana, English alphabetic characters and Arabic numbers. The company`s products are compatible with the Palm operating system, Windows CE and the Symbian operating system.

Zi Corporation to debut new user interface technology at 3GSM

New developments to boost handset usability while increasing operator revenues and data services

3GSM Congress, Cannes, France and Calgary, AB, Canada January 27, 2005 - Zi Corporation (Nasdaq: ZICA) (TSX: ZIC), whose technology empowers more than 103 million mobile devices worldwide, will unveil its latest suite of product advancements at next month`s 3GSM World Congress in Cannes. Visitors to the Zi stand (no. E21, Hall 2) will view a revolutionary new product that will radically change handset usability and drive consumer uptake of data services; the latest versions of its flagship eZiText® and award-winning eZiTap™ predictive text input products with new languages; and the recently acquired Decuma® handwriting recognition interface for Chinese, Japanese and alphabetic languages.

"The acquisition of Decuma and the announcement of our new user interface solution set the stage for Zi in 2005," said Zi Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing Glen Morgan. "Our portfolio of products will enable users for the first time to easily access all the functionality and capabilities of their phones and handhelds."

Zi`s new product offering addresses usability as the means for driving operator service revenues. This revolutionary interface solution helps wireless users access the full-breadth of applications and services of today`s increasingly advanced, feature-rich devices. Users can now take advantage of more handset applications and operator services - like MMS, mobile browsing and other data-centric services - all in a way that is quick and easy.

"Ease of use is a key theme for us at 3GSM. Visitors to our stand will see what we have achieved for operators, manufacturers and the end-user; not only that, they will be able to try our new solutions for themselves," stated Morgan. "3GSM is the perfect venue to introduce the newest advances to our predictive text input suite of products, to showcase Decuma handwriting recognition and to reveal a completely new technology to improve the user interface experience."

"Zi has achieved a number of significant advances on the product front in the last 12 months. eZiText and eZiTap are more fully featured than the offerings of any of our competitors and we believe this positions us as the supplier of choice," added Morgan. "As a company, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to further simplify and enhance the use of mobile wireless devices and solidify our innovation leadership position."

Zi`s product portfolio now includes more than 40 different language databases, an additional 70 language interfaces and the ability to meet texting needs in more than 130 countries. Demonstrations of all the company`s products will be available at the Zi stand during 3GSM.

A Unique Angle on Wireless

By TSC Investment Team
12/29/2004 11:53 AM EST
Click here for more stories by TSC Investment Team
Editor`s Note: This column was originally published as an alert to subscribers to Stocks Under $10 on Dec. 20. It subsequently rose 35% and was removed from the portfolio on Dec. 22.
Cell phones are everywhere. Global mobile media company Enpocket reports that 61% of Americans have cell phones, and the Street is expecting global handset sales will reach about 650 million units in 2005. Even so, making money in the space has never been more difficult for the passive investor, but we believe we`ve found an interesting angle.
Readers of Stocks Under $10 know that we made some pretty good money trading around Skyworks (SWKS:Nasdaq - news - research)), which makes the "guts" of cell phones, earlier this year. But pricing pressure, seasonality and inventory cycles have made gaming the stocks of wireless component makers like Skyworks, Nokia (NOK:NYSE - news - research) and Motorola (MOT:NYSE - news - research) more difficult of late.
However, we believe we found an opportunity to capitalize on wireless trends when we discovered Canadian wireless software maker Zi (ZICA:Nasdaq - news - research). A reader wrote in asking about the prospects for its technology, and after doing some research, we believe this is a company that is still in the early stages of its growth cycle and is not as prone to the cyclical nature of the business. We are going to buy an 800-share position in this Stealth Stock for the model portfolio here around $4.60, as we believe Zi can trade as much as 50% higher in 2005.
The company creates embedded software for cell-phone manufacturers that is designed to make using text messaging technology more convenient. The company has patented predictive technology that significantly cuts down on the time it takes to send a message, with its auto- fill function that fills in commonly used words. For example, a message of "I will call you later" takes 17 key strokes and a couple of mouse clicks on a PC. This same message sent via a cell phone requires 45 touches, give or take a couple of mistyped letters and some backspaces.
The technology is more complex than it sounds, but the company`s business model is relatively easy to comprehend. Zi earns about 15 cents on every phone sold containing its software, and that pricing has been firm in recent quarters after declining slightly last year. In addition, the company receives licensing and engineering fees for customized products and designs from manufacturers like LG and Nokia.
Zi believes it has 15% of the total predictive text market share right now and we expect that number to increase as its technology improves and more manufacturers sign on to use its technology. The company`s primary competition comes from Tegic Communications, a wholly owned subsidiary of cable behemoth Time Warner (TWX:NYSE - news - research) that currently has a majority share of the text software market.
The 15 cents on 15% of the 650 million phones is very quantifiable and not all that exciting. We are intrigued more by its growth prospects, which are supported by strong fundamentals.
Zi reported record revenue of $3.7 million and profit of 2 cents a share in the third quarter. The one analyst who covers the stock, Barry Richards from Paradigm Capital, is calling for sales to double from 2004 levels to $28.8 million in 2006. We believe the company has the balance sheet to support this expansion, with no debt and $10 million of cash.
On Dec. 14, Zi put some of its capital to work, acquiring the handwriting-recognition software technology of Decuma AB, a Swedish software maker, for $1 million. We believe management is looking to do more deals like this to increase its product offerings. Handwriting recognition, along with other software like its bilingual product that learns speaking tendencies in several different languages and increases its international possibilities, could generate more in the neighborhood of $1 a phone and help it take market share from Tegic. It also could help it yield $1 a share or more in earnings in the next couple of years.
Es ist ruhig geworden mit Postings zu Zi Corporation.
Ist noch jemand investiert?

Kann man bei dem jetzigen Kurs einsteigen.

Zi Corp`s Decuma Japanese handwriting technology selected for new Motorola 3G smartphone

06/09/2005 by Parthajit


Zi Corporation, a provider of intelligent interface solutions, today announced that its advanced handwriting recognition solution, Decuma Japanese, is embedded in the newly launched FOMATM M1000 3G smartphone, now available through Japan`s mobile operator NTT DoCoMo, Inc. Co-developed by NTT DoCoMo and Motorola, the FOMA M1000 is reported to be the world`s first-ever WLAN-integrated W-CDMA and GSM/GPRS dual-mode smartphone. The FOMA M1000 is manufactured by Motorola.

The Decuma Japanese handwriting recognition solution is expected to provide FOMA M1000 smartphone owners with a new interface capability that will allow them to significantly increase writing speed.

Die Aktie steigt in Amerika um 12,83 % auf 2,55 USD.
Die Meldung

Zi Corp`s Decuma Japanese handwriting technology selected for new Motorola 3G smartphone

hat wahrscheinlich viele Anleger vor allem in Amerika an die letzte Rallye bei Zi Corp erinnert, als es um einen Nokia Auftrag ging und der Aktienkurs sich von 1,50 auf 5,92 € (Fra) fast vervierfachte.

Anders ist die aktuelle Kursentwicklung nicht zu erklären:

Börse Symbol Währ. Vortag akt.Kurs Diff. % Handelsvol. gehand. St. Kurszeit

Das war damals die Meldung zu Nokia:

(# 23 hier im Thread)

22.12.2004 / 18:02
Zi Corp.: Aktie nach Nokia-Auftrag um 20 Prozent im Plus

Zi Corp. (Nasdaq: ZICA, WKN: 894201): Die Aktie des kanadischen Netz-Technologie Spezialisten Zi Corp. gehört heute zu den großen Gewinnern an der Wall Street in New York. Die Ursache für den Anstieg im zweistelligen Prozentbereich ist darin zu suchen, dass Nokia eine Lizenz des Unternehmens erworben hat.

Die Aktie von Zi Corp. konnte heute im bisherigen Handelsverlauf in New York um 20.94 Prozent an Wert hinzugewinnen und notiert damit momentan bei 6.41 US-Dollar. (dbr)


Der Handel in Zi Corp an deutschen Börsen ist natürlich
verschwindend gering.
Die Makler können sich deshalb einen Spread von 6,98 % (Fra) erlauben.

Die Zi Corporation erstellt Technologien und Software zum Lesen und Schreiben von chinesischen, japanischen und koreanischen Buchstaben, die in E-Mails, im Internet, von Pagern, Mobiltelefonen, interaktiven Fernsehgeräte-Boxen und ähnliche Anwendungen verwendet werden können.

Folgender, allerdings schon älterer, Handelsblatt-Beitrag beschreibt die Thematik ausführlicher:

Kanadisches Unternehmen entwickelt Software

Handys, Fernseher und Computer lernen Chinesisch

Mehr dazu unter # 2.


Eigentlich müßte es noch viele TAIPAN-Leser geben, die erlebt haben, wie die Empfehlung dieses Börsenbriefes
ZI Corp Kurse von rund 40 € erreichte.


Eine solche Empfehlung bräuchten wir mal wieder, damit mal Schwung in den an sich guten Wert kommt.

:) :cool:
Es geht munter weiter. Die Aktie war ja kaum zu haben in D. Habe mit Mühe und Not noch

400 à 2,23 € in München
1.000 á 2,15 in Frankfurt
und 1 auf xetra zu 2,10 erhalten (Teilausführung von 300)
(werden auf Xetra nur in der Mittagsauktion etwa gegen 13,55 h gehandelt).

Inzwischen ergibt sich folgendes Bild:

Börse Symbol Währ. Vortag akt.Kurs Diff. % Handelsvol. gehand. St. Kurszeit
Nasdaq ZICA USD 2,64 3,07 + 0,430 + 16,29 % 1,13 Mio. 691.159 07. Sep 16:39

Das ist aber nur die halbe Wahrheit. Die bid- und ask-Kurse liegen inzwischen deutlich höher.
Da kein Handel zustande kommt, erscheinen die allerdings nicht in der WO-Übersicht.

Ich will hier niemanden mit den Einzelheiten bombardieren, aber um einen Eindruck von der Aktie zu bekommen, muß das 1 x gestattet sein.

Stg bid 2,38 ask 2,55 €
Fra bid 2,34 ask 2,49 €
Mchn bid 2,38 ask 2,48 €

Ich hoffe doch, daß sich zumindest die alten Zi Corp Fans
wieder hier im Thread einfinden, die Aktie darüber hinaus
aber besser bekannt wird. Es könnte sich lohnen!

Trotzdem dient der Thread nur zu Information und Diskussion und stellt keine Kaufempfehlung dar.

:) :look: :cool:
Sehr schön:), wie steht das Unternehmen eigentlich finanziell dar?

R.R.:)
Du stellst Fragen. Ich bin auch nur vorübergehend hier.
Schätze mal, daß Du da viel mehr Einblick hast über die HP.

Sonst gibt es zu Zi Corp hier kaum Recherche-Möglichkeiten.

Das beste, was ich anbieten kann, ist der Link zu Onvista.

http://aktien.onvista.de/snapshot.html?ID_OSI=89396

Leider fehlen auch dort die meisten Daten.

Von 2002 bis 2005 arbeitete Zi Corp mit Verlust.

Interessanterweise sieht man für 2006 dann plötzlich einen Gewinn je Aktie von 0,17 €. Das ist doch schon mal was.

Leider ist Zi Corp kaum bekannt, und auch hier im Thread läßt die Frequenz sehr zu wünschen übrig.
Dabei bietet das Unternehmen mit seinen Nischenprodukten
Highlights, die gerade heute durch die Globalisierung große Chancen haben müßten, speziell mit Blick auf China und Japan.

Ich würde mich freuen, wenn jeder hier im Thread etwas zur Recherche beitragen kann und hinterher alle zufrieden sind wie nach der letzten Rallye von 1,50 bis auf 5,90 €.

In Amerika erreichte die Aktie heute in der Spitze 3,17 USD. Der 2. Tag in Folge mit Kurssteigerungen von mehr als 15 %.

Aber auch + 28,88 % auf 2,41 € in München sind nicht von schlechten Eltern!

:look: :cool:
München zum Schluss

2,51 EUR
+0,64 | +34,22%


Das gibt`s noch nicht mal bei Barnabus!

Bei einem angenommenen Gewinn 2006 von 0,17 € je Aktie
wäre das ein KGV von 14,76.

In Amerika aktuell

3,18 USD
+0,54 | +20,42%


Wie sehen die Charttechniker die weitere Entwicklung?
Gibt einen Grund für den Anstieg?
Wenn nicht ist das sehr gut;)






Bei 4 USD ist ein dicker Widerstand!
bei 3,45 USD dürfte es erstmal wieder gelaufen sein, es sei denn es kommen Hammernachrichten...:confused:
Ansonsten sehe ich keine charttechnischen Besonderheiten!
Den Grund für den Kursanstieg findest Du unter # 34, 36 und 37.

Der angepeilte Gewinn von 0,17 € pro Aktie für 2006 nach Verlust für die Jahre 2002-2005 ist m.E. eine vielversprechende Entwicklung.

Zu Deinen Fragen nach der finanziellen Situation:

Hallo alle zusammen,
bin schon seit vielen Jahren in ZI investiert und habe alle Höhen und Tiefen mitgemacht.

ich möchte hier mal eine Mitteilung des CEO Lobsingers vom Dezember 2000 zur Diskussion reinstellen:

TORONTO -- Despite hard-to-predict forces that are causing many
technology companies considerable heart-ache, Zi Corp. (ZICA) said it has
"clear vision" into 2001, and projects it will reach profitability in the coming
year.

Michael Lobsinger, the company`s chairman and chief executive, said Zi
Corp. will "definitely be profitable" in 2001, adding that within the next 30 to
60 days the company will be able to more-accurately forecast exactly when
the bottom line will turn black.

"With the contracts that we are anticipating signing in the first quarter of next
year, along with the new implementations that are going into the marketplace,
we should be able to tell in the first quarter of next year when we are going to
be profitable," Lobsinger said.


Nun sind wir schon im Jahr 2005 und die sind immer noch nicht profitabel( 1.Halbjahr -0,04 ct/aktie).

Und das obwohl sie in den vergangenen Jahren immer wieder neue Lizensverträge abgeschlossen habe, Awards gewonnen haben, die Software verbessert haben, usw.usw.

Ich glaube so langsam, daß die gar nicht Profit machen wollen, sondern sich mit dicken Gehältern auf Kosten der Aktionäre die Taschen vollstopfen.

in diesem Sinne

hallo feb,

So etwas gibt es auch. Das schlimmste Beispiel war US wireless. Nachdem sich der Vorstand dort die Taschen vollgestopft hatte, wurde der Laden dicht gemacht.

Allerdings bin ich bei Zi Corp noch optimistisch.

Der angepeilte Gewinn von 0,17 € pro Aktie für 2006 nach Verlust für die Jahre 2002-2005 ist m.E. eine vielversprechende Entwicklung, es sei denn, die Angabe kommt auch von Lobsinger.

Bis dahin gibt es hoffentlich noch eine schöne Rallye, und dann sehen wir weiter.

Hallo Nobody_III

Hast Du Dir mal die HP von ZI angesehen?

wirklich superprotzig gemacht.
Man wirft sich in die Brust, seit Jahren nur positive Meldung auf der Website (bis auf die Bilanzen !!!)
und dem entgegen seit jahren Verluste.
Das wiederspricht sich irgendwie.

Als der Kurs von 40.- € abschmierte hat sich der liebe Lobsinger brav bei den Investoren entschuldigt und Besserung gelobt.Passiert ist aber nichts. Seit dem dümpelt der Kurs zwischen 2.- und 5.- € rum.
Das bringt mich aber auch nicht weiter.
Ich bleibe trotzdem investiert bis Sankt Nimmerlein.

Ach ja noch was, wenn Du auf den unteren Link gehst
und zica eingibst bekommst Du die
Realtimekurse, sowie BID und ASK von ZI in New York.

Momentaner Kurs $ 3.07 .

Eine Super-HP kann sich jeder zulegen, der etwas von Technik versteht.
Das muß nicht zwangsläufig eine Garantie für Profitabilität sein.

Ich bin zu wenig involviert, um Dir eine definitive Stellungnahme zu Deiner Vermutung geben zu können.
In der jetzigen Umsatzgrößenordnung schlagen die Kosten halt noch voll durch.

Das könnte sich durch die u.a. Aquisition ändern:

Zi Corporation Completes Acquisition of Assets of Decuma AB of Sweden

CALGARY, ALBERTA and LUND, SWEDEN, Jan 26, 2005 (CCNMatthews via COMTEX) -- Handwriting Recognition Solution Expands Zi`s Suite of Intelligent Interface Technologies
Zi Corporation (Nasdaq:ZICA)(TSX:ZIC), a leading provider of intelligent interface solutions, announced today that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of assets from handwriting recognition software specialists Decuma AB of Lund, Sweden. As part of the acquisition, Zi has acquired the intellectual property and customer agreements of privately held Decuma AB. The purchase price was approximately US$1.0 million paid in newly issued shares of Zi Corporation common stock.

Commenting on the acquisition, Zi Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer Michael D. Donnell emphasized the importance of the Decuma purchase for Zi`s long term expansion plans. " Our strategy of developing software to further simplify and enhance the use of wireless devices will be significantly strengthened by this acquisition.

" Decuma`s handwriting recognition technology will be an important complement to Zi`s market-leading eZiText(R) and eZiTap(TM) solutions. We are convinced that the combination of the technologies will further bolster our competitive advantage and increase our market share by enabling us to deliver an expanded suite of innovative products to customers," added Donnell.


Wie man sieht, hat das Engagement ja auch schon Früchte getragen:

Zi Corp`s Decuma Japanese handwriting technology selected for new Motorola 3G smartphone

Der Kurs von 40 € ist wohl durch die Empfehlung von Taipan zustande gekommen. Übertreibungen dieser Art waren ja z.B. auch am Neuen Markt eher die Regel. Für Dich ist das natürlich bitter, wenn Du von Anfang an dabei warst.

Danke für den Link. Mal seh`n, was sich gleich in Amerika tut.
Hallo NOBODY_III

Komme heute leider nicht mehr dazu auf dein letztes Posting zu antworten, muss noch ein bisschen arbeiten.

Melde mich am Montg wieder.
Habe noch ein paar gute Diskussionspunkte

Schönes Wochenende
feb
Wie gewonnen, so zerronnen........

Die schönen Gewinne sind fast schon wieder weg.

Zum Schluß sah es an der Nasdaq so aus:

2,84 USD -0,13 | -4,38% Nasdaq NM


Ob es sich bei den Verkäufen nur um Gewinnmitnahmen oder auch um Leerverkäufe handelt, läßt sich nicht so einfach sagen.

Eins scheint aber festzustehen:

Bei Zi Corp wird gnadenlos gezockt und zwar hauptsächlich in USA und Can, wobei natürlich auch hiesige Profis dort mitmischen können.

Es gibt die Möglichkeit, kostenlos an die amerikanischen RT-Kurse heranzukommen.
feb hat den Link in # 48 reingestellt.

Sehr schnell wird einem dort eine zunächst kostenlose Analyse zu Zi Corp angeboten. Das kann anhand des Links
jeder nachvollziehen.

Im Handumdrehen wird einem die folgende Analyse per E-Mail zugeschickt:

VectorVest Stock Analysis of Z I Corp. as of 9/8/2005

Man betrachtet Zi Corp als überbewertet und stuft die Aktie gegenwärtig als Halteposition ein.


Interessenten sollten sich wegen Copyright die Analyse selbst schicken lassen.


Wie wir bei Onvista gesehen haben, wird für 2006 ein Gewinn von 0,17 € pro Aktie angestrebt.

VectorVest bewertet die Aktie anhand der letzten Zahlen. Die sind allerdings Vergangenheit. Es kommt nun darauf an, ab wann man Zi Corp anhand der Prognosen für 2006 bewertet wird. Dann sieht es wieder ganz anders aus.

Das voraussichtliche Gewinnwachstum sieht VectorVest als excellent an.

Inzwischen blüht der Leerverkauf der angeblich überbewerteten Aktie, die allerdings künftig ein hervorragendes Gewinnwachstum erwarten läßt.
Genauso kann man darüber urteilen, ob eine Ballard Power
überbewertet ist, die noch eine Entwicklungsphase von ca. 10 Jahren vor sich hat oder die meisten Nanotechnologie-Aktien, Biotechnologie-Werte etc.

Als Stop-Kurs gibt man USD 2,56 pro Aktie an.

Der Trader wäre natürlich gut beraten gewesen, die Gewinne nach den 2 Tagen Rallye sofort mitzunehmen.

Mittelfristig sieht das wieder ganz anders aus.

Meinungen dazu?

Bitte anklicken. Der Chart ist sehenswert!


Der Versuch, die Aktie in den Keller zu schicken, ist Gott sei Dank gescheitert.

Bei 2,76 USD setzte eine Gegenbewegung ein, und Zi Corp schloß auf Tageshoch von 3,00 USD (2,416 €).

Mal seh`n, was die deutschen Börsen morgen daraus machen.

Im übrigen frage ich mich:

Wo sind denn all die Aktionäre, die ein 52 Wochen Hoch von 8,00 USD erlebt haben?

Die Aktie steht jetzt bei 3,00 USD, und zum 1. Mal seit Jahren steht ein Gewinn von 0,17 € pro Aktie für 2006 in Aussicht. Das riecht doch nach einem turn around!


Trotzdem dient dieser Beitrag nur zu Information und Gedankenaustausch und stellt keine Kaufempfehlung dar.

Wenn es dabei bleibt, haben die deutschen Börsen Dienstag
ziemlichen Nachholbedarf.

Am 6.9. freuten sich die Zi Corp Aktionäre über ein Plus von 16,8 % und am 7.9. von 16,7 %, ausgelöst durch die Meldung über den Zuschlag von

Zi Corp`s Decuma Japanese handwriting technology for new Motorola 3G smartphone

Von 3,08 USD ging es dann aufgrund von Gewinnmitnahmen und möglicherweise Leerverkäufen um 17,2 % auf 2,55 USD am 28.9. zurück.

Erst die Meldung lt. # 57 analog dem Thread-Titel brachte heute wieder etwas Schwung in den Zi Corp - Kurs.

Die Aktie schloß 1 Cent unter Tageshoch mit einem Plus von 10,69 % bei 2,90 USD.

Kann sich diese Rallye wiederholen?

Die Aktie steht jetzt bei 2,90 USD, und zum 1. Mal seit Jahren steht ein Gewinn von 0,17 € pro Aktie für 2006 in Aussicht. Das riecht doch nach einem turn around!


Alles schön und gut, wären da nicht die Zocker über`m Teich, die zu schnellen Gewinnmitnahmen neigen.
Die Kurse werden nun mal an der Nasdaq gemacht und nicht
an dt. Börsen.

Mit folgendem Link läßt sich die Kursentwicklung an der Nasdaq ganz gut verfolgen:

Was tun? Mit den Wölfen heulen? Oder langfistig agieren, in der Hoffnung, daß wir das 52 Wochen Hoch von 8 USD mittelfristig wiedersehen?

Meinungen?

Das beste wäre natürlich, wenn Taipan seine frühere Empfehlung noch einmal aufgreifen würde.

Eigentlich müßte es noch viele TAIPAN-Leser geben, die erlebt haben, wie die Empfehlung dieses Börsenbriefes
ZI Corp Kurse von rund 40 € erreichte.
Das sieht doch ganz gut aus, zumindest in Frankfurt:

Bei einer derartigen Volatilität bieten sich Tradern gute Chancen, nicht nur in Amerika.

Allerdings braucht`s dafür auch die TOP-Meldungen, und die wird`s leider nicht alle Tage geben.

Nicht zu vergessen, daß sich die Gewinnaussichten dramatisch verbessert haben:

Zi Corporation Reports 2005 Third Quarter, Nine-Month Results
Thursday November 10, 8:00 am ET


CALGARY, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 10, 2005--Zi Corporation (NASDAQ:ZICA - News; TSX:ZIC - News), a leading provider of intelligent interface solutions, today reported results for its third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2005. (Unless otherwise indicated, all monetary amounts in this news release are in U.S. dollars).
ADVERTISEMENT


Total revenue for this year`s third quarter was $2.5 million with a net loss of $1.5 million, or a loss per basic and diluted share of $0.03, compared to total revenue in the 2004 third quarter of $3.7 million and net income of $0.7 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share. Gross margin as a percentage of revenue in the 2005 third quarter was 93 percent compared to 97 percent for the 2004 third quarter.

Chairman and CEO Michael Lobsinger said, "While this year`s third quarter financial results were disappointing, we believe they reflect the impact of a major shift we are seeing in the global mobile phone market. As often occurs in a vast and maturing global market, the major players are asserting their dominance while a number of the mid-tier companies are beginning to either consolidate or leave the market altogether. At the same time many of the smaller innovative OEMs, especially those in China, Korea and Japan, continue to grow. When you break down our revenue, you see that our revenue base is changing with the shift in the market. Revenue in this year`s third quarter from our mid-tier customers is down year-over-year, while revenue from all of our other customers is up compared to last year`s third quarter. Also, revenue in the third quarter was not impacted by the launch of our new product, Qix, even though we expect an agreement in the near future, nor was there any substantial revenue from our latest acquisition, Decuma, which announced its first major contract, to be embedded on Motorola smart phones with distribution by NTT DoCoMo in Japan and the recently announced Nintendo agreement.

"The entire management and new sales team is committed to effecting a rapid recovery in our financial results and is focused on increasing revenue and reducing non-essential expenditures," Lobsinger added. "We are optimistic about returning to a period of sustained growth and profitability and firmly believe we have the products, resources and talent to do so."

Lobsinger said that the Company is working closely with its existing and new customers to increase revenue by expanding the use of Zi products and technologies in new models and for new applications and added that Zi`s sales pipeline has never been better. At the same time, the Company is continuing to invest in Qix(TM) and in the enhancement and expansion of its predictive text and handwriting recognition solutions as these products will create important new customer and revenue opportunities.

"An excellent example of one such opportunity," Lobsinger commented, "is the recently announced license agreement with Nintendo for use of Decuma® handwriting recognition technology in games for the Nintendo DS handheld video game system. This represents an important strategic expansion of our market opportunities as it gives us an excellent entree into the video game market with the world leader."

Zi Corporation total revenue for this year`s first nine months was $8.5 million compared to total revenue of $10.2 million for the first nine months of 2004. The net loss for the 2005 first nine months was $3.2 million, or a loss per basic and diluted share of $0.07, compared to a net loss of $0.5 million, or a loss per basic and diluted share of $0.01 for the year-earlier period. Revenue from the Zi Technology business unit for the first nine months of this year was $7.9 million compared to $9.9 million for the same period a year ago. During the first nine months of this year other product revenue from e-Learning was $0.6 million compared to $0.3 million a year earlier. Gross margin as a percentage of revenue in the first nine months of this year was 95 percent compared to 96 percent in the prior year period.

The Company`s balance sheet as of September 30, 2005 showed cash and cash equivalents of $10.6 million, total assets of $20 million, total liabilities of $4.3 million, including just $46,172 in long term debt, a current ratio of 3.68:1, and shareholders` equity of $15.7 million.

Chief Operating Officer Milos Djokovic remarked, "We began offering our customers packaged suites of Zi products during the 2005 third quarter, which encourages broader adoption of a range of the Company`s products by our customers and provides an important platform for future revenue. And, in early October, we released directly to consumers the Zi Predictive Text Suite download for Series 60 phones enabling users, for the first time, to get all of Zi`s advanced predictive text features in a single package. The download is available for Series 60 phone users through Handango and its more than 100 download portals."

The Company believes that significant shifts in market share are occurring within the mobile phone market. Consolidation of OEMs and ODMs, together with certain participants abandoning the industry altogether, are resulting in the major OEMs gaining greater global market share. Historically, Zi`s customers have been predominantly smaller, Asia-based OEMs. During the past several years the Company added three larger OEM and ODM customers. And notably, Zi added one major customer at the end of last year that represents more than 30 percent global market share. While Zi has made important progress towards increasing its penetration in the major customer accounts, it is still at an early stage. In the third quarter of 2004, revenue from three customers, constituted 38 percent of the Company`s revenue. All other customers, which numbered 37, generated 62 percent of total revenue.

As a result of market share changes and Zi`s customer mix, the Company`s revenue for the 2005 third quarter reflects the majority of its accounts reporting a favorable 31 percent growth rate while three larger accounts and professional services revenue reflect a 74 percent decline in revenue year over year.

The increase in the year-over-year loss for the 2005 third quarter was due to the lower revenue and gross margin; higher selling, general and administrative expense ("SG&A"); an increase in product research and development expense; an increase in legal fees; and a tax provision related to a Chinese subsidiary. These increases were partially offset by an increase in interest income of $0.1 million.

For the first nine months of 2005, the increase in the year-over-year loss was due to lower revenue and gross margin; an increase in product research and development expense; impairment of a note receivable; increased legal and litigation; increased depreciation and amortization; and a tax provision related to a Chinese subsidiary. These increases were offset by a favourable settlement of litigation against prior counsel; a decrease in SG&A and an increase in interest income and other items.

During the third quarter and first nine months of 2005, Zi earned royalties from 51 and 67 eZiText® licensees, respectively, compared to a respective 40 and 57 in the same periods a year earlier. There were 30 new handset models embedded with eZiText released into the market in the 2005 third quarter, and for the first nine months of 2005 there were 156 new models released into the market, bringing the total at the end of the first nine months of 2005 to 960 compared to 677 at the end of the 2004 first nine months.

SG&A in the third quarter of 2005 was relatively unchanged compared to the third quarter of 2004 at $2.1 million, and SG&A expense in the first nine months of this year decreased to $7.2 million from $7.6 million in the prior year period. In the first nine months of 2004, $1.4 million in non-cash compensation expense was recognized upon issuance of restricted stock units and non-employee stock options. There was no non-cash compensation expense incurred in the first nine months of 2005.

Product research and development expense for the 2005 third quarter and first nine months were $0.8 million and $3.1 million, respectively, compared to $0.4 million and $1.4 million in the respective year-earlier periods. Gross expenditures on product research and development before capitalization increased by $0.4 million to $1.2 million for the third quarter and $1.1 million to $3.8 million for the first nine months.

The Company continues to invest in new product features and enhancements to software language databases along with continued investment in Decuma handwriting recognition software. In the three month period ended September 30, 2005, the Company capitalized $0.3 million in software development costs. In the third quarter of 2004, the Company capitalized $0.4 million in software development costs related to developing new and improved language database software. In the nine-month period ended September 30, 2005, the Company capitalized $0.7 million of software development costs. In the nine-month period ended September 30, 2004, the Company capitalized $1.3 million in software development costs related to developing dramatically new and improved language database software.

http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ecn?s=ZICA

Ähnliche Kursschwankungen hat es auch schon früher gegeben, und trotzdem ist der Kurs plötzlich doch explodiert. Das muß aber nicht heißen, daß sich diese Entwicklung kurzfristig wiederholt.

Tatsache ist doch, daß Zi Corp einige technische Spezialitäten anbietet, die besonders für die Boommärkte
Japan, Korea und China in Frage kommen.
Ich würde mich nicht wundern, wenn das den Anlegern wieder bewußt wird.

Nicht auszudenken, was passiert, wenn ein Small Cap Fonds
sich für Zi Corp interessiert.
Auch eine Übernahme würde ich nicht ausschließen, auch wenn das momentan nicht im Gespräch ist.
Aber welche Übernahme wird schon vorher angekündigt?

Zi Corp ist halt ein sehr marktenger Wert und eine Spielwiese für Spekulanten, die den Kurs leicht manipulieren können.

Das Geld ist Zi Corp noch nicht ausgegangen.
Aus dem Posting der 9 Monatszahlen hier im Thread:

Cash and cash equivalents $ 10,587,106 $ 12,889,335

Vielleicht schaust Du mal rein.

Auszug aus meinem Posting # 46:

Allerdings bin ich bei Zi Corp noch optimistisch.

Der angepeilte Gewinn von 0,17 € pro Aktie für 2006 nach Verlust für die Jahre 2002-2005 ist m.E. eine vielversprechende Entwicklung, es sei denn, die Angabe kommt auch von Lobsinger.

Bis dahin gibt es hoffentlich noch eine schöne Rallye, und dann sehen wir weiter.


Solltest Du andere Informationen haben, lass wissen.

Übrigens:

Es gelingt zwar nur wenigen, immer die Höchst- oder Tiefstkurse zu erwischen, aber zwischen dem gestrigen Tief von 1,51 USD und dem heutigen Hoch von 1,71 liegen immerhin 13,2 %.

Eine gute Gelegenheit für Trader!

Warum nicht mal "eine schnelle Mark" machen? Warum nicht mal mit den Wölfen heulen?

Irgendwann kommt wieder eine positive Meldung, und dann müssen sich die Shorties eindecken. Dann explodiert die Aktie und geht genau so schnell wieder runter, wobei Ausnahmen wie bei der letzten Rallye die Regel bestätigen.

Trader lieben diese Volatilität.

Ansonsten bietet die Aktie m.E. eine interessante Story,
was ja bei Börsen-Gurus immer für besonders wichtig gehalten wird. Leider steht Zi Corp zu wenig im Blickpunkt, so daß die Mehrheit der Anleger das überhaupt nicht registriert.

Es fehlt ein viel gelesener Börsendienst, der Zi Corp empfiehlt wie damals Taipan, als der Kurs über 40 € kletterte. (Siehe # 2 - 5)

Ich glaube nicht, daß Zi Corp damals "mehr Gewinn" erzielte als heute.

:confused: :cool:
Danke für die Info. Spannende Geschichte!

Allerdings sehr langatmig und für jemand, der nicht fließend englisch spricht, schwierig zu übersetzen.

Könnte vielleicht jemand im Telegrammstil die wichtigsten Infos zusammenfassen? Bitte.
DR.DIAMOND

Danke für den Link. Mich würde in diesem Zusammenhang interessieren, ob die Thematik in der Form schon länger bekannt ist. Das dürfte dann auch er Grund für den Kursverfall der Zi Corp Aktie sein.

Wenn das alles stimmt, dann kommt ein Verfahren auf Zi Corp zu, aus dem das Unternehmen nicht mehr ungeschoren herauskommt. Inwieweit die Aktien dann noch ihren heutigen Wert behalten oder zusammenbrechen, muß sich zeigen.

Wer auf Nummer sicher gehen will, sollte seine Zi Corp Aktien am besten verkaufen. Wenn ich das richtig sehe, sind die Anschuldigungen allerdings nicht so neu, so daß es keinen Grund zur Panik gibt.

Hinzu kommt, daß Mr. Steinberg seine 18,7 Mio Zi Corp Aktien (41 % der Zi Aktien) ja auch noch verwerten will.

Die Gefahr ist u.U., daß die Aktie eines Tages vom Handel ausgesetzt wird und der deutsche Anleger nichts mehr dafür bekommt wie z.b. bei U.S. wireless, wo die Manager mutmaßlich auch in die eigene Tasche gewirtschaftet haben sollen, gelinde ausgedrückt.

Mich würde auch sehr interessieren, was MrRipley als Zi Corp Experte zu dem Vorgang sagt.

Gruß

Hinweis: Dieser Thread dient nur zur Info im Rahmen des Diskussionsforums und stellt weder eine Kauf-noch eine Verkaufsempfehlung dar.
Nun weiß ich überhaupt nicht mehr, was ich glauben soll.

Trotz dieser von DR.DIAMOND übermittelten Infos stiegen die Zi Corp Aktien am Freitag, 18.11.05 um 13,2 % auf 1,71 USD und das trotz der enttäuschenden Quartals/9 Monats-Zahlen.

Heute ziehen die Aktien um weitere 12,50 % auf 1,89 USD an. (1,605 €)

Was ist los? Kauft sich Mr. Steinberg die Mehrheit zusammen?

Hinzu kommt, daß Mr. Steinberg seine 18,7 Mio Zi Corp Aktien (41 % der Zi Aktien) ja auch noch verwerten will.

Meinungen?
An 50,1 % würden Mr. Steinberg noch ca. 4,125 Mio Aktien fehlen.
Dafür würde er etwa 7,8 Mio USD benötigen.

Andererseits fragt sich, weshalb er so viel in ein Unternehmen investieren soll, dessen Management er gerade derart belastet.

Kommt darauf an, ob Zi Corp über- oder unterbewertet ist, und wer sollte das besser wissen als Mr. Steinberg?

Immerhin kommt die Aktie von 8,00 USD (52 Wochen Hoch) und hatte am Donnerstag, 17.11.05 ihr 52 Wochen Tief von 1,51 USD.

Meinungen?
Das könnte ein Grund sein warum die Aktie steigt.
Die Qix Trials in Europa die im März begannen könnten
kurz vor dem Ende sein.Wenn sie erfolgreich waren würde
das natürlich dem Kurs Auftrieb geben.Die nächsten Tage
bleiben spannend.

Zi Corporation and Virgin Mobile UK Announce First Consumer Trial of Qix Technology



Leading UK MVNO to Trial Innovative Service Discovery Engine and Its Effects on Service Usage and ARPU



Anzeige:

At CTIA Wireless 2005 today, Zi Corporation (Nasdaq:ZICA) (TSX:ZIC), and Virgin Mobile Holdings (UK) (LSE:VMOB), announced the first consumer trial of Zi`s newly launched Qix(TM) technology. Qix (pronounced "quicks") is a compelling new mobile service discovery engine which combines predictive text and content indexing to enable rapid discovery of contacts, features and services on a mobile phone.



Qix significantly reduces the number of key presses needed to use a phone, thereby enhancing the user experience for the subscriber and simultaneously driving service usage and adoption resulting in greater Average Revenue per User (ARPU). Launched last month at the 16th annual 3GSM World Congress, Qix will be bundled with Virgin Mobile`s Nokia 6630 handsets during spring 2005. The trial will compare service usage and ARPU between subscribers with and without Qix-powered smartphones.



Graeme Hutchinson, Sales & Marketing Director at Virgin Mobile, said: "One of the biggest challenges we face is to entice customers to start using the plethora of features and services on their phones, and to use them frequently. We believe that the Qix technology will make all mobile services easier to find and use. It provides for the first time an intuitive, fast search index for a mobile user, in the same way that an internet search engine like Google or Yahoo helps web surfers find what they are looking for."



"As the first completely intuitive service discovery engine, this carrier trial with Virgin Mobile is an important milestone for Qix and a key opportunity to gather first-hand consumer feedback on our product," said Glen Morgan, senior vice president of global sales and marketing for Zi. "In order to create the ideal customer experience, Zi invested in significant focus group testing when we developed Qix. We are confident that this trial will reinforce our findings and belief that Qix will drive service adoption and subscriber ARPU."



The trial will utilize the Symbian OS version of Qix.

Hallo DrDiamond,

Danke für die Info!

Hoffnung? Zu schön, um wahr zu sein!

Wenn man vom aktuellen Aktienkurs ausgeht, der RT um 5,73 % auf 1,48 USD nachgibt, sieht`s wohl eher düster aus. Der Kursverfall beschleunigt sich.

Wie siehst Du die Chancen?

@NOBODY III
Ich glaube die Chancen aus diesem Schlamassel herauszu-
kommen stehen nach wie vor gut.Vorausgesetzt man einigt
sich mit der Lancer Management Group!!Eigentlich ist Zi
Corp.eine solide Firma mit guten Produkten und vielen
Patenten.Im übrigen ist der weltweite Handykonsum noch nicht zu Ende und davon profitiert natürlich auch Zi.Vor
allem in China steht der Boom erst noch bevor.Das Beispiel
Nintendo zeigt,dass Zi auch in andere Bereiche vordringt.
Abzuwarten bleibt ob sich das neue Qix System durchsetzten
wird.Zusammenfassend kann man sagen Zi hat gute Voraussetzungen um sich in diesem schnellebigen Markt zu
behaupten.Wir müssen halt ein wenig Geduld haben.

Zi Expands Growing Presence in Asia-Pacific through New Licensing

Agreements for Its eZiText Predictive Text Input Technology

Zi Corporation (NASDAQ:ZICA - News; TSX:ZIC - News), a leading provider of intelligent interface solutions, today announced that it has expanded its presence in the Asia-Pacific wireless market. Zi has signed significant licensing agreements for its advanced eZiText® predictive text input technology with five wireless companies. Located in the People`s Republic of China, Malaysia and Korea, the five original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) will integrate eZiText into their own offerings to reduce key presses and enhance the user experience when text messaging.

Virgin Mobile Preliminary Market Trial Data Shows Boost in Mobile Usage With Zi Corporation`s Qix Software
Tuesday December 20, 8:00 am ET
Extension to Phase II Planned


LONDON & CALGARY, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 20, 2005--Zi Corporation (TSX:ZIC - News; NASDAQ:ZICA - News), today announced that preliminary results from the first live network trial of Zi Corporation`s revolutionary Qix(TM) service discovery engine indicate significant increased usage levels on the mobile phones involved - from simple voice calls to SMS, MMS and Internet access.
ADVERTISEMENT


Qix was bundled with Virgin Mobile`s Nokia 6630 handsets. Virgin Mobile began the UK-based trial earlier this year in the summer and following the success of the initial phase the operator is now set to commence phase II and extend the trial to more users in the New Year.

Graeme Hutchinson, sales & marketing director at Virgin Mobile, said "Virgin Mobile always puts its customers` experience first - and the clever technology of Qix helps make complex phones simple to use. Our customers tell us that Qix means they get much more out of their phone - no more delving through menus - they can easily find what they are looking for on their phone simply and quickly. The results show much increased customer usage. This success has us looking forward to extending the trial to more customers and other phones in our range."

Qix provides for the first time an intuitive, fast search index for a mobile user, in the same way that an Internet search engine helps web surfers find what they are looking for. Qix is an innovative mobile service discovery engine that sits on the phone`s idle screen and combines predictive text and content indexing to enable rapid discovery of contacts, features and services on a mobile phone.

Qix encourages greater Average Revenue per User (ARPU) by significantly reducing the number of key presses needed to use a phone, thereby enhancing the user experience for the subscriber and simultaneously driving service usage and adoption. Over time, Qix`s interactive memory remembers new user data, including new URL bookmarks and called numbers for future presentation. It also tracks frequently used personal selections over time and then presents them with priority over other information, providing easy access to favourite items of the user.

"This is great news for the mobile industry in general and Zi in particular," said Zi Corporation`s chief technical officer and chief operating officer Milos Djokovic.

"We knew we had something exciting in the labs earlier this year and Qix attracted interest from operators when we previewed it in Europe, North America and Asia. Virgin gave us the first chance to prove it in a live environment, for which we are very grateful, and the early signs are that it is delivering on its promises."

About Qix

Qix is a compelling new service discovery engine that sits on top of user-platform environments and operating systems. Qix provides a quick and easy method for accessing a phone`s full set of features, applications and services without having to remember where and how to find them via a phone`s built-in menu structure. Qix intuitively accesses a phone`s features directly from the idle/dialing screen using the standard keypad. Visit www.zicorp.com/qix for more product information.

Dear Friend,


After spending six very intense years studying thousands of “before and after” stock charts of the most powerful and outrageously profitable stocks over the last 4 decades [by the way I am not talking of stocks that gained 50% – 100% in under 12 months; I am talking of stocks that EASILY gained anywhere from 200% to 2000% in a few months]; the secret of identifying future stock market leaders moments before they exploded was discovered!!

Let Us Help You Own The Next Top 5 (And Top 50) US Stocks Within the Next 12 Months JUST When They Start Moving...Guaranteed!!


YOU should please keep in mind that we discovered this secret almost four years ago. You might wonder what we did after we unearthed this monumental money making stock market secret. Well, we did what any totally obsessed team would do - we went back and looked at all the thousands upon thousands of awesome “before and after” stock charts we had looked at before finding the life changing secret so that we would confirm that our findings were rock solid and unshakable.

Finally! Discover The Secret That’s Got Money Managers, Hedge Fund Managers, Traders and Individual Investors In Over 84 Countries Actually OWNING The Next Top US Stocks Just When They Start Moving.

To push the envelope even further, we spent months of sleepless nights looking at the kind of stocks that only returned 50% - 100%. Even though these returns were considered mediocre most investors, including so called professional investors, would kill for them. Could this secret principle guide us to stocks that easily made say: 200% - 500% while avoiding stocks that had a relatively smaller return? We also looked at the uncountable number of “before and after” stock charts of the stocks that lost investors’ money.


The conclusion (and this is a biggie so kindly pay attention); applying the secret, simple principles will by default lead you to nothing less than ridiculously profitable stocks JUST as they begin to rally; while avoiding the universe of weak and moderately strong stocks!!

Zi Corporation sells Oztime subsidiary to Archer Education Group Inc.
Wednesday December 28, 8:00 am ET


CALGARY, Alberta & VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 28, 2005--Zi Corporation (TSX:ZIC - News; NASDAQ:ZICA - News) today announced that it has sold its Beijing-based Oztime and English Practice businesses to Archer Education Group Inc., a Vancouver-based international education company.
ADVERTISEMENT


Zi will receive a significant non-controlling equity stake in Archer, a private company with schools in Vancouver, Toronto and Hamilton, Canada. Under the terms of the agreement, Zi receives 4.1 million shares of Archer, of which 1 million shares are subject to an escrow agreement and may be released upon attainment of certain financial objectives of Oztime.

Michael Lobsinger, Chief Executive Officer of Zi Corporation, commented, "We are excited to see Oztime as part of Archer given its sharp focus on the opportunities associated with international education and its record of success thus far. The sale of Oztime to Archer in return for an equity position alleviates Zi from the allocation of management and resources to Oztime and allows Zi to participate in Archer`s value creation."

"With the completion of this transaction, we can focus all our energy and resources on accelerating top and bottom line growth by maximizing the return on our predictive text technologies, Decuma® handwriting recognition products and breakthrough Qix(TM) service discovery engine," Lobsinger added. "We are well positioned with this industry leading range of products to increase our share of the global wireless market and to expand into additional market segments worldwide."

Jason Hiebert, Chief Executive Officer of Archer Education Group Inc., said, "Acquiring Oztime will accelerate our growing corporate learning business and give us a foothold in the biggest untapped market for our schools in Canada.

"With Archer`s network of schools including language, high school and post-secondary, we will now be able to offer Chinese as an option to enter the education system in Canada at a variety of levels. We plan to also integrate Oztime`s technology into our product offering to new and existing corporate clients. Additionally, we will incorporate Oztime`s technology into our own school network making us one of the most advanced, cutting edge education companies in North America," added Hiebert.

Zi Corp kann heute weitere 9,93 % auf 1,66 USD zulegen.

Bisher gab es nach 2 Tagen UP Trend in der Regel wieder einen Down Trend. Neues Jahr - neue Regeln? Who knows?

Dem Yahoo Message Board nach zu schließen gehen die Meinungen ziemlich auseinander. Den Optimisten, die zum Teil ein Kursziel von 10 USD für Zi Corp sehen, weil sie zu Kursen bis zu 8,00 USD eingestiegen sind, stehen gnadenlose Shorties gegenüber, die keinen Pfifferling für die Aktie geben würden und sich deshalb viel vom Leerverkauf versprechen.

http://finance.messages.yahoo.com/bbs?.mm=FN&action=m&board=…

"Leider" ist die Börse kein Wunschkonzert, und es sieht so aus, als wenn die Risiken für die Zi Corp - Aktionäre größer wären als die Chancen. Alles andere wäre eine positive Überraschung.

Ich würde mich gern irren, zumal ich selbst engagiert bin.

Zi Corporation Now World`s Number One Mobile Device Language Database Provider as New Languages boost Emerging Market Presence
Wednesday January 18, 4:00 am ET
Zi`s 54 language database ability means it supports more than two-thirds of the world`s population for predictive text messaging


LUND, Sweden & CALGARY, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 18, 2006--Zi Corporation (TSX:ZIC - News; NASDAQ:ZICA - News), a leading provider of intelligent interface solutions, today became the world`s number one mobile device language database provider when it launched six new language databases for its award-winning predictive text products.

Zi`s eZiText® for one-touch entry prediction and eZiTap(TM) for intelligent multi-tap entry are now available in four new languages for the Indian wireless market and two new languages for the African wireless market. Subscribers in these emerging wireless markets can now enter text more quickly and customize their mobile phones through the use of personal language.

With the six new languages, Zi is now supporting more languages worldwide than any vendor in the predictive text messaging market. Now supporting 54 language databases, Zi provides intuitive user interface solutions for more than two thirds of the world`s population. By integrating Zi`s powerful predictive text products into their phones, mobile phone manufacturers can enhance the text messaging experience for subscribers and drive increased usage rates for mobile operators. The six new language databases have already been delivered to a major Zi customer for use in its mobile phones.

"With mobile subscribers in both Africa and India growing at a rapid pace, these low penetration, high growth markets have specific language needs," said Milos Djokovic, chief technical officer and chief operating officer, Zi Corporation. "By supporting six new language databases, Zi is enabling mobile operators and phone manufacturers in India and Africa to provide subscribers with predictive text messaging products to help meet the market demand for new wireless services. By empowering mobile phone users with simplified text messaging functionality, wireless operators can increase adoption and usage rates among the subscriber community."

With Gartner predicting that the Indian cellular services market will reach $24 billion by the end of 2009 and other sources citing India as one of the fastest growing markets in the world, adding nearly 2 million new subscribers each month, Zi is helping mobile operators and handset manufacturers capitalize on this exploding market with specific language offerings for text input and messaging. In the Indian subcontinent, added to its existing language offering of Hindi, which has 340 million speakers, and Urdu, with more than 10 million, Zi is now supporting predictive text messaging technology for 227 million Bengali speakers, 66 million Tamil speakers, 50 million Punjabi speakers and 46 million Gujarati speakers.

In Africa, Gartner predicts wireless subscribers to grow from 92 million in 2005 to nearly 154 million by 2010. Zi`s new African language databases will enable more than 50 million Swahili speakers and 6.4 million Afrikaans speakers to more quickly use text messaging services.

Zi will be at the 3GSM World Congress, February 13-16 in Barcelona, Spain. For media interviews or tours at 3GSM please contact Brian Dolby with GBCS PR on +44 (0) 115 948 6901 or e-mail brian@gbcspr.com.

About Zi`s Predictive Text Products

Zi`s user-friendly text input system, eZiText, enables consumer electronic manufacturers and telecom carriers to provide end users with richer, more personalized text input experiences. eZiText provides faster and more efficient text entry through truly predictive one-touch entry and word completion, coupled with the ability to learn from a person`s usage patterns and new vocabulary.

eZiTap delivers users a fast and personal text input experience for SMS and MMS. As a user enters in letters through multi-tap, eZiTap searches the built-in dictionary and predicts multiple words for easy selection. Rather than typing the rest of the word, users simply select one of eZiTap`s suggestions and move on. eZiTap learns the words used and will predict those words in subsequent text entry. This is especially useful for names, slang, acronyms and other unique words.
Kurs RT 1,67 USD (+ 12,08 %)

Meinetwegen könnte der "Aufwärtstrend" aufgrund der Meldung dieses Mal länger als 2 Tage dauern.

Aber leider ist die Börse kein Wunschkonzert.

;)
Es sollten jetzt mehrere solcher guter Meldungen in kürzeren Abständen kommen dann würde sich der Aufwärtstrend fortsetzen und die Investoren hätten wieder
mehr Vertrauen in diese Firma.
Sehr schön, dieser Ausbruch nach oben.
Der 3. Tag in Folge mit +10% oder mehr bei guten Umsätzen.

Ja, ja, die bevorstehende Teilnahme an der Techmesse in Barcelona im Februar wirft ihre Schatten voraus.

Außerdem klingt der Einstieg in den indischen Markt nebst Afrika vielversprechend.

Canaccord hatte bei Kursen um 1,80 USD und später nochmal bei 1,59 USD am 06.12. zum (Leer-)Verkauf geraten. Diese Jungs müssen jetzt ordentlich short covern, wollen sie nicht noch mehr Verluste erzielen.:laugh:

Die Rallye nährt die Rallye.
Ich möchte einer Oberschwester ja nicht so gern widersprechen; ich wünschte, es wäre er 3. Tag in Folge mit + 10 %. Bisher liefen die Aufwärtsbewegungen immer nur 2 Tage.

Es wäre schön, wenn die Aktie diesen Rhythmus mal überwinden könnte. Aber damit wären die Trader oder auch die Shorties wohl nicht einverstanden.

Hier die letzen Daten:

Date Open High Low Close Volume Adj Close*
18-Jan-06 1.55 1.74 1.53 1.74 238,700 1.74
17-Jan-06 1.57 1.57 1.45 1.49 175,400 1.49

aktueller Kurs RT: 1,88 USD + 8,05 %

;)
Ok, knapp daneben. ZICA schließt dennoch ordentlich +7.5%. Wenn mir jemand Anfang der Woche gesagt hätte, daß wir am Donnerstag Abend bei 1.87 enden, nachdem wir die ganze Zeit lustlos in den 1.40-1.50ern herumpendelten...
Das hat nichts mit knapp daneben zu tun. Das würde ich ja gar nicht bekritteln.

Es geht vielmehr darum, daß Du behauptest, Zi Corp wäre 3 Tage hintereinander um 10 % gestiegen. Es waren aber nur 2 Tage.

Ich würde mich freuen, wenn zica mal 3 Tage hintereinander in der Größenordnung steigen würde. Lassen wir uns mal überraschen. Vielleicht klappt`s ja heute.

;)


Das waren noch Zeiten!

Heutzutage ist man schon froh, wenn die Zi Corp Aktie die
2 Dollar-Hürde nimmt.

Wenn sich der Nasdaq-Kurs von 2,09 USD hält, müßte die Aktie in Frankfurt morgen etwa 20 % steigen, um gleichzuziehen.

Heute wird in D ja noch bis 20.oo h gehandelt.

Niemand weiß, woher der plötzliche Kursanstieg kommt.
Im Yahoo Message-Board wird auf die charttechnisch gute Lage hingwiesen.

Gerüchteweise wird für nächste Woche mit Zahlen gerechnet.

Vielleicht weiß jemand mehr.

Eine Headline lautet:

THE GOOGLES/MICROSOFT OF CELLS IS ZICA

THATS THE NEWS. PEOPLE ARE BEGGINING TO REALIZED THIS.

Ein anderer User sieht folgenden Zusammenhang:

Anyone notice the article in USA Today newspaper (Money section) about Bill Gates thoughts on the future of cell phones in developing countries? I found it very interesting and wonder if this would have a positive effect on Zica.

Statement by Zi Corporation
Thursday February 2, 8:00 am ET


CALGARY, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 2, 2006--Zi Corporation (TSX:ZIC - News; NASDAQ:ZICA - News), a leading provider of intelligent interface solutions, today announced the Court of Queen`s Bench of Alberta Judicial District of Calgary has ruled in favor of Zi on a motion made by Marty Steinberg, Esq., Receiver for the Lancer Group of Funds.
ADVERTISEMENT


The Receiver had attempted to call a special meeting of shareholders in the summer of 2005 to change the board of directors. Zi applied to the Court and obtained an injunction of the Court of Queen`s Bench of Alberta, alleging the shares controlled by the Receiver were acquired in breach of Alberta securities laws, and that the Receiver should be prevented from using the illegally acquired shares to change the board.

The Receiver brought a motion to contest the Alberta court`s jurisdiction, and to seek to have all matters dealt with in a Florida court. The Alberta court, in a decision dated January 31, 2006, denied the Receiver`s application, affirmed its injunction against the Receiver and ruled that an Alberta court is the proper forum to consider matters under the Alberta Business Corporations Act and to consider the breaches that Zi alleges occurred under Alberta legislation.
Zi had previously agreed to a US venue for resolving certain contractual issues with the Receiver, and the Alberta court acknowledged that such agreement does not affect the Alberta court`s ability to handle matters under the Alberta Business Corporations Act and Alberta securities laws.

Meinungen zu dem Gerichtsentscheid?

Wenn das der einzige Grund für die 20 % Rally war, dürfte
der Kurs bald wieder nachgeben. Intraday ist die Aktie ja schon von 2,44 USD wieder zurückgekommen auf 2,32 USD.

Bleibt die Spekulation auf die Zahlen, die nun doch schon zwischen dem 6. - 16.2. rauskommen. Im Yahoo Message Board ist davon allerdings noch nicht die Rede.

LG added that Zi`s language leadership will enable them to reach new text messaging markets across the globe.

With eZiText Version 7`s upgraded language databases and improved engine, mobile subscribers can drastically reduce the number of key presses required to input text messages, improving the overall speed and quality of the entire experience. Available through Version 7 are Zi`s advanced prediction features, including; dual language messaging, learning and personalisation, and multiple candidate and next word prediction.

"As the only text input technology to provide true-full-word prediction all the time, eZiText continues to push the envelope of ease, speed and accuracy on today`s data-centric mobile phones," said Milos Djokovic, chief technical officer and chief operating officer, Zi Corporation. "With its innovative features, eZiText is the most comprehensive predictive text messaging product in the wireless industry. Zi is happy to continue its relationship with LG Electronics as the two companies expand to emerging wireless markets and capitalize on opportunities in existing markets."

Zi Corporation Announces World`s First Mobile Device Handwriting Recognition Solution With Text Prediction
Thursday February 9, 4:00 am ET


LUND, SWEDEN and CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 9, 2006) -
Doubles Language Capabilities of Decuma Handwriting to 31 Languages

Zi Corporation (TSX:ZIC - News; NASDAQ:ZICA - News), a leading provider of intelligent interface solutions, today announced the release of the latest version of its state-of-the art Decuma® handwriting recognition. Decuma Version 4 is a new predictive, personal and powerful pen-input solution now available for OEMs to embed. It adds predictive text capabilities, including word completion and increased personalization to handwriting input. It also more than doubles the language repertoire of the award winning Decuma software to 31 languages - including the complex Chinese and Japanese scripts. Zi Corporation will be demonstrating Decuma Version 4 at stand E40 in Hall 2 at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona, February 13 to 16, 2006.

Powered by Zi`s world class prediction technology, Decuma V4 promises to revolutionize pen-input for mobile device users. In addition to alphabetic languages, Zi`s prediction expertise extends to Decuma Chinese with phrase-level association and phonetic input conversion. The system is expressly designed for mobility, and to work optimally on small form factor devices such as mobile phones, portable gaming consoles and other terminals that otherwise produce poor and shaky handwriting results. Decuma recognizes 100% naturally shaped letters in upper and lower cases, numbers, symbols and punctuation, and even enables users to text in two languages at the same time without having to switch input modes

"Standard handwriting on mobile devices has never quite worked for some consumers. Conventional methods are too awkward, and the process is too slow and frustrating," said Milos Djokovic, Zi Corporation`s chief operating officer and chief technology officer. "With Zi`s unequalled predictive text capability, Decuma is providing a whole new experience in pen-input speed and usability."

Djokovic adds that, from a device OEM standpoint, Decuma V4 was specifically designed to allow OEMs to continue using their current pen-input user interface and to easily add support for prediction. Decuma also enables immediate time-to-market, being quick and easy to implement or use as a replacement for existing conventional handwriting recognition solutions.

Decuma languages include Afrikaans, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English (British and American), Estonian, Finnish, French (European and Canadian), German, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (European and Brazilian), Romanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish (European and Latin American), Swahili, Swedish, Tagalog and Turkish.

[posting]20.118.013 von DR.DIAMOND am 09.02.06 14:50:09[/posting]Rein theoretisch könnten die Zahlen wieder negativ ausfallen. Aber sie könnten entgegen aller Befürchtungen auch eine positive Überraschung bringen. Wer kann das schon ausschließen?

Ärgerlich wäre es, ausgerechnet dann nicht investiert zu sein. Oder? Ich bin ja schon froh, daß sich die Aktie überhaupt wieder so hochgerappelt hat. Nach Bekanntwerden
der Rechtsstreitigkeiten hatte ich ganz andere Reaktionen erwartet.

Ich fand auch diesen Hinweis in der Meldung ganz interessant:

Zi Corporation will be demonstrating Decuma Version 4 at stand E40 in Hall 2 at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona, February 13 to 16, 2006.

Die Kursreaktion auf die Meldung war zunächst recht ordentlich:

Zi Predictive Text Solutions Tapped for New Sony Ericsson P990 Smartphone
Monday March 20, 8:00 am ET
Sony Ericsson chooses eZiText and award winning eZiTap for P990
integrates advanced prediction innovations from Zi


CALGARY, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 20, 2006--Zi Corporation (NASDAQ:ZICA - News; TSX:ZIC - News), a leading provider of intelligent interface solutions, today announced that two of its industry-leading predictive text technologies eZiText® and the eZiTap(TM) FEP are embedded in the P990, the latest generation smartphone from Sony Ericsson. Zi Corporation will be demonstrating the P990 at CTIA Wireless (Booth 5821 North Hall).

The successor to the Sony Ericsson P910, the P990 sets new standards in smartphones delivering 3G/UMTS as well as tri-band GSM and GPRS connectivity. It is also one of the few WiFi enabled phones, supporting the IEEE802.11b technology.

"The decision by Sony Ericsson to embed Zi`s predictive text solutions in its new pioneering P990 smartphone confirms Zi`s position at the forefront of technological innovation," comments Milos Djokovic, chief technical officer and chief operating officer of Zi Corporation, "We are delighted with this decision which shows our chosen path is coming to fruition."

"Users of our advanced smartphones expect predictive text input capability as part of the overall feature set of the device," said Brendan Press, Head of Enterprise Marketing, Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications, "Zi`s eZiText and eZiTap FEP solutions are the cutting edge of predictive text technology and we are pleased to be able to incorporate them both in the new P990."

The Sony Ericsson P990 provides two user interfaces known as flip closed and flip open. Flip closed mode utilises the eZiText solution on the 12 button keypad and flip open the award-winning eZiTap FEP for the standard/default virtual and hardware keyboards. Zi`s technology offers advanced features which provide the user with truly predictive and seamless input capability, whether using the keypad, keyboard or handwriting. Zi predictive text features on the P990 include: dual language messaging, learning and personalisation, and multiple candidate and next word prediction. Eighteen of Zi`s fifty-four predictive text language databases are also supported by the P990.

To support the advanced capabilities of the P990 the device utilizes Symbian OS(TM) v9.1 together with the UIQ Technology 3.0 user interface.

"Up to Q3 2005 almost 48 million Symbian OS smartphones had shipped worldwide," said Simon Garth, VP of Marketing, Symbian. "We are delighted to be working with Sony Ericsson, Zi Corporation and UIQ Technology in bringing the P990 to market and believe the phone will be even more successful than its predecessor."

"In driving the uptake of advanced mobile data services the usability of the handset interface is the most important factor," said Peter Molin, Chief Technical Officer of UIQ Technology, "By adding Zi`s advanced text input to UIQ 3, our software platform, the usability of the device is significantly increased."

Zi Corporation Reports 2005 Fourth Quarter, Year-End Results
Wednesday March 29, 8:00 am ET


CALGARY, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 29, 2006--Zi Corporation (TSX:ZIC - News; NASDAQ:ZICA - News), a leading provider of intelligent interface solutions, today reported results for its fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2005. (Unless otherwise indicated, all monetary amounts in this news release are in U.S. dollars.)
ADVERTISEMENT


Total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2005 were $2.9 million compared to total revenues in the 2004 fourth quarter of $3.2 million. The net loss for the 2005 fourth quarter was $2.1 million, or a loss per basic and diluted share of $0.05, compared to a net loss of $1.9 million, or a loss of $0.04 per basic and diluted share in the prior year fourth quarter. Gross margin as a percentage of revenue for the 2005 fourth quarter was 95 percent versus 97 percent for the year earlier quarter.

Chairman, President and CEO Michael Lobsinger said that he believes the 18 percent increase in fourth quarter revenues from the 2005 third quarter may be a strong indicator that revenue declines from a limited number of customers in earlier quarters are beginning to rebound. "Even though revenues for the 2005 fourth quarter and year declined from the prior year periods, we believe Zi is back on a track of yearly growth," Lobsinger noted.

"We are confident we are addressing the impact on our business of a shift that has occurred in the mobile phone market. This shift is driven by pressure from the mobile operators to provide lower cost handsets to their mobile subscribers, as well as changes in market share among OEMs. These changes in market share are a result of the major OEMs increasing their dominance at the expense of the small and mid-tier OEMs, which historically have represented a significant portion of our revenue," Lobsinger said.

Zi also strategically expanded its product line in 2005, acquiring Decuma® Handwriting Recognition technology and launching its breakthrough Qix(TM) service discovery engine into carrier trials. In addition, the Company has been successful in securing key customers in new high growth markets such as gaming.

"To be successful in the rapidly changing and consolidating global handset market requires the ability to adapt and I believe we demonstrated that in 2005," Lobsinger added. "Thanks to the efforts of our new sales and marketing team we managed to penetrate major accounts outside of China, where we had previously been concentrated. Our new range of products and our sales and marketing successes bode very well for Zi's future."

Zi Corporation total revenues for 2005 were $11.4 million compared to total revenues of $13.4 million for 2004. The net loss for 2005 was $5.3 million, or a loss per basic and diluted share of $0.12, compared to a net loss of $2.4 million, or a loss per basic and diluted share of $0.06 for the year-earlier period. Gross margin as a percentage of revenue in 2005 was 95 percent compared to 97 percent in the prior year period.

Total revenues for 2005 included other product revenue from e-Learning of $0.8 million, which compares to $0.5 million a year earlier. Included in the 2005 net loss is a $1.4 million gain on settlement of litigation against prior legal counsel and a $250,000 impairment charge related to a note receivable.

The Company's balance sheet as of December 31, 2005 showed cash and cash equivalents of $12.2 million, total assets of $22.4 million, total liabilities of $8.7 million, a current ratio of 2.03:1, and shareholders' equity of $13.7 million.

In 2005, Zi earned royalties from 72 eZiText® licensees compared to 57 in the same period a year earlier. During 2005, 196 new handset models embedded with eZiText were released into the market, bringing the total at December 31, 2005 to 1,000 compared to 804 a year earlier. In the fourth quarter of 2005, 40 new handset models embedded with eZiText were released into the market.

Zi's core product, eZiText, is now pre-integrated on all major mobile operating systems and platform providers for smart phones including: S60, Symbian, Microsoft Smartphone, PalmSource and Brew. Qix(TM) is integrated with S60 and UIQ platforms.

At the end of 2005, Zi announced that Archer Education Group Inc., a Vancouver-based international education company had acquired its Oztime e-Learning business. With the completion of that transaction, the Company will allocate resources to accelerating growth by maximizing the return on its predictive text technologies, handwriting recognition products and Qix service discovery engine.

Chief Operating Officer Milos Djokovic said that during 2005, the Company penetrated major accounts; finalized a deal in Japan for Decuma software to be embedded on Motorola handsets in Japan; signed a licensing agreement with Sony Ericsson for its smartphone offering; implemented a program to market its suite of Zi products; announced a strategically important relationship with Nintendo for the use of Decuma Handwriting Recognition technology in games for the Nintendo handheld video game system, and launched an accelerated marketing strategy for Qix.

"Overall our new sales and marketing team made significant progress during 2005," Djokovic said. "Perhaps one of the most promising accomplishments for the future was the very positive results from the first phase of our field trial of Qix with Virgin Mobile in the UK. The results showed significant increases in handset usage for such tasks as simple voice calls, SMS (text messaging), MMS (multimedia messaging) and Internet access as Qix gained momentum and traction with consumers participating in the trial. Virgin Mobile is currently expanding into the second phase of the project. We have also begun marketing Qix to several European carriers that have expressed a desire to enter into commercial agreements with Zi.

Djokovic added that Zi also bolstered its relationships with several of the larger handset manufacturers and made real progress toward turning a number of those relationships into global agreements. "We believe our sales, marketing and development teams have created new momentum in winning new customers and building revenues."

The year over year reduction in the Company's 2005 revenue was due principally to a significant revenue decline from a limited number of large customers, partially offset by the remainder of its accounts reporting overall modest growth.

The increase in net loss in 2005 over 2004, was due to lower revenue of $2.0 million with a resulting reduction in gross margin of $2.2 million; increased product research & development expense of $1.9 million; increased legal and litigation of $0.8 million; increased depreciation and amortization of $0.2 million; a tax provision related to a Chinese subsidiary of $0.7 million; and an increase in selling, general & administration costs (SG&A) of $0.6 million offset by an increase in interest income and other items of $0.3 million.

SG&A increased for the fourth quarter of 2005 and year to $2.6 million and $9.9 million, respectively, compared to $1.7 million and $9.3 million for the same year-earlier periods. The increases in the fourth quarter of 2005 and year over year include costs associated with operations of the recently acquired Decuma Handwriting Recognition technology, costs associated with Sarbanes-Oxley Act ("SOX") and other compliance work and realized foreign exchange losses. Offsetting these increases over 2004 was the absence of $1.4 million of Restricted Stock Units and non employee stock options costs incurred in 2004. There was no non-cash compensation expense incurred in 2005.

Product research and development expense for the 2005 fourth quarter and year were $1.2 million and $4.2 million, respectively, compared to $0.9 million and $2.4 million in the respective year-earlier periods. Gross expenditures on product research and development before capitalization increased by $1.2 million to $5.2 million in 2005 compared to $4.0 million in 2004.

The Company continues to invest in new product features and enhancements to software language databases along with continued investment in Decuma handwriting recognition software. In 2005, the Company capitalized $0.9 million in software development costs compared with $1.7 million for the same period in 2004. The costs capitalized during these periods were related to software development to develop new and improved language database software.
