Yep, why doesn't everyone play the "I predict" game? Fun for all the family. I'll not join in, never do, They will do what they have to do, Fruitflow+Omega3 inflows change the dynamic of course, and none of us know if the cost of goods has to be paid up front, on 60/90/120 day payment schedule, or even on separate medium term finance, all possible. Cost of creating fruitflowplus website will have been born, possible set up cost for the packaging and the logistics operation, after which the cost should be pro rata.
MM's can do as they like, we all know that, but why would they buy shares at .295 if they are anticipating paying less soon, why would they want those shares when appetite has been dulled for two months since we were clearly told the deal they had in mind.
The question was rhetorical, could do without another "Oh Alf" sort of put down. I treat you with respect, don't particularly need another dose of superiority complex.
Let Mutters have his say, the company have already told us they need to raise cash ffs !
For the half year ending Sept 2015, we burned ~200k of cash, or about 35k / month
For the half year ending March 2016, we burned ~160k of cash, or about 25k /month
For April and May, we burned 77k, or 38k / month
Assuming the latter didn't include a payment from DSM it's reasonable to assume that we'd have been accruing for expected payments, but, with the best well in the world, we can't really expect to be doing much better than burning 20 to 25k / month, plus whatever upfront costs are associated with Fruitflow+, which hopefully will be minimal.
It's not far off the end of July, so, if we assume we've had ~25k from DSM for the quarter ending June then we're likely to be something like :-
113k ( cash in bank at end of May ) Less ~40 to 50k for two months cash burn at 20 to 25k/month Plus ~25k for revenue from DSM
giving something between 85 and 100k as I type, probably less because we'll probably have a "Cost of Goods" line in the accounts associated with stock levels which is likely to take a while to turn into an operating profit on FF+
We plainly need funding in the order of 200 to 300k to get the accounts signed off as a going concern. The 185k in the RNS dated 29th June might be enough to persuade the auditors, but it must be a pretty close thing and the fact that it hasn't been done yet makes me think more than 185k will be needed.
Mutters is being a bit playful when he talks about sells, but it's by no means impossible that the MM's are holding this above .24p to make sure that it gets away at that price.
They are certainly pushing this to the edge as far as cash goes! My prediction is a fundraising is to happen over the next month or so (its got to happen or else!) expect some fairly large (million plus) sells just before it gets announced. Be interesting what the final price is agreed at.
