Tekcapital Plc (AIM: TEK), the UK intellectual property (IP) investment group focused on creating marketplace value from investing in university technology, is pleased to announce that portfolio company Lucyd Ltd, the developer of an eShop for innovative eyewear, has launched Loud 2.0, its new line of prescription-ready Bluetooth® music glasses.

Lucyd's new collection offers 10 exclusive, fashion-forward designs, coupled with more than 20 different types of proper corrective lenses, all day battery life, and a host of useful features.

Lucyd Loud correct your vision and are Bluetooth-enabled, making it possible to listen to music, make phone calls and use voice assistants from your prescription glasses. The voice assistant function enables a number of useful apps to be used handsfree, such as Uber® and Cashapp®.

It's perfect for cyclists, runners, athletes and people on the go, because you can still hear what's happening around you, while listening to your tunes and staying connected. As a result of their bone conducting feature, they're also great for any situation where you want your music, but don't want to carry or use headphones.

There is a premium article at Cube.Investments looking at TEK in detail. Might be of interest.

Don't think you've offended anyone - at least not here.

Good things about Tekcapital is they've got several shots at goal. They also search through tens of thousands of patents to find the most promising using industry experts. So a high chance some of their portfolio will come good. All for a crazy low market cap of £ 6.5m. Just one winner makes this a 10+ bagger.

Don't think the management teams at their portfolio companies would have joined if they didn't like the IP and market opportunity. Too much chance of reputation loss if the IP was worthless and the market non-existent.

Sorry about that last post…Yes, I know sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, but in my defence I had just come back from two hours of medical tests and was feeling a little grumpy! I apologise to anyone who was offended!

Anyway, whilst the tech sector is a high risk area, it is also somewhere to achieve high returns (and losses!). A bit like the old wild west in the gold rush, its definitely not for anyone with a nervous disposition or can’t afford to lose the money they are investing. It not guaranteed that our guys will get it right, but to me they seem to have the right background and experience to make these predictions. I certainly don’t throw money around as if in a casino, but do as much background research as possible and then take a calculated risk. I continue to be happy with my decision to invest in this company and feel it is just a matter of time and patience!

I do not pretend to have detailed tech knowledge, but instead have many decades of experience in judging peoples characters in business. To me I see a quality line up, with all the right experience, connections and intentions. Perhaps a little weak in raising their profile, but this is improving. Having said this, I would prefer it this way, rather than the usual AIM type director enthusiastically spouting a whole load of nonsense!

Hum, that sounds like a very difficult decision to make as to who to believe and will struggle with that one!

An unknown poster who can’t spell or

The chairman who was served as CEO of Siemens Networks USA (NYSE: SI) and Aviat Networks (NASDAQ: AVNW). He served also as a Senior Executive at Nokia Siemens Networks, North America

One director who served as Executive Vice President of General Motors and President of the Cadillac Motor Division, President of Infiniti Motor Company Ltd, President of Audi of America Inc., and President of Audi Japan.

The other director who helped create General Motors mobility division, “Maven”, and led all operations as COO, and was a Vice President at Zipcar, where he helped pioneer the brand globally. Avis Budget Group acquired Zipcar for ~ $500 million. Dan is CEO of Zagster, the micro-mobility company that operates 250 programs in 35 states.

All three following the developments in the autonomous vehicle space closely, working for very little, but stand to gain a lot with success/performance.

Whilst nothing is a certainty, I know who I would put my money on in relation to predictions…oh, I already have!!

Your right, though I would point out that's an accounting thing largely - an increase in net asset value. But the consulting side seems to be growing so hopefully that will generate cash in the future.

I despair of the other board's TEK musings. There's a poster there pontificating about Guident - a cash drain he thinks with no reasoning given. As a general rule of thumb software companies are often high margin and capital light. He can't even spell the company's name.

Hi Breq, I would further add that we are one of few new companies on AIM that actually generate profit, 5 million net last year so its also less risky. It will be exciting to see where we are in a year or so...

poortrader, yes TEK is one of the few shares on AIM that doesn't have to do anything highly unlikely, like say drilling for oil and finding a massive strike, to reasonably 10 bag on what we know already.

Salarius could be worth £55m on its own (£1 a share) if it signs up a few big snack companies.

Belluscura should significantly increase in value on FDA approval.

Guident may have a core IP position hence the very credible auto execs joining it.

Lucyd is a wild card but could be in the right place at the right time. People love cutting the number of gadgets they need - headphones plus glasses just to glasses.

Breq, that makes sense. There is also rumour that driverless cars may begin to make an appearance as early as 2021, though for me in the immediate term Salt and Oxygen are my main interests. With any luck we should be drifing towards the £1 mark by the end of the year

I see on the other board one poster in particular is trying to talk down Guident's potential. Comments like suggesting revenues are years away. He neither understands the automotive industry nor software patents.

Car companies have to plan 5 to 10 years in advance of any new models reaching the market. Their lead times for components, new factories, robots etc are that long. So although autonomous cars probably are that far away, the car companies have to line up their components - both hardware and software - many years in advance. I see Guident suggest selling commences this summer. That would tie in with likely fully autonomous car sales in 2025 to 2030.

A car company would not risk spending billions on hardware development without tying in ( licensing) the necessary software.

Salarius is the key investment. I can see other snack food companies signing up for this given the move to healthier products. This is a multi billion dollar industry and we are currently a £6mill company. Insane to be selling out at this price.

Hi rr1977, thanks for the info. Just wondering who the other investor was? I have not been able to find any info as of yet. Personally I would rather the stake in some of the umbrella companies were reduced if it avoids another share placing. I know this was on the cards a while back as it was confirmed in the investor call and I was told by yellow jersey that there is no timescale for this yet. I beleive the plan is to use service revenue to cover operating costs in future.

RE: belluscura

A point of clarification. As stated by Belluscura on CrowdCube it is emphasized that the X-PLOR does not need regulatory "approval" like one would need for a Class 3 drug or implanted device. To bring a Class 2 device such as an oxygen concentrator onto the US market they need to receive a "clearance" from the FDA that they agree with Belluscura's testing that the product is as safe and effective as a previously cleared oxygen concentrator. This lower standard of review is applied by the FDA on products deemed to be less risky to patients.

I did start to think maybe they hadn’t as I noticed that their holding of Belluscura 6 months back was 33%, then 2 months back it reduced to 29% and this month its 25%. So even after the dilution it would have been slightly higher if they had invested that £200k. I would have thought they would have published the actual figure of how much they invested.

Tek did not make the 200K investment. Investment came from a new outside investment group.

The video was uploaded 16th April and 29% was the position at the time. However, I guess that some dilution took place following the crowdcube fund raising, probably reducing the holding to the 25% mentioned?
