na dann lies doch mal den Quartalsbericht vom November bei www.pinksheets.com:
(oder hapert´s beim englisch?)
...The Company has not generated revenue from operations during the first nine months of 2001 or since its inception. During the third quarter of 2001, the Company began the quarter with $31,614 in cash. At November 1, 2001, the Company had a working capital deficit. The Company had approximately $29,000 in cash and trade payables of approximately $42,500 at that date.
In early July 2001, the Company terminated its investor relation representative and hired a scientific consultant to evaluate all of the patents and patent applications of the Company for relevance to potential commercial applications. The consultant first stated that all patents and provisional patents involving Field Enhanced Diffusion by Optical Activation (FEDOA) which covered diamond based fuel cells, diamond doping and the removal of impurities, listed inventors that are or were faculty members of the University of Missouri at Columbia. The University Administration asserts that all inventions created at the University by its faculty members are its intellectual property and not Rhombic's.
1. Provisional patents for the System and Method for Diamond Based Fuel Cells give substantial evidence that the described process using FEDOA is too slow to be economically feasible.
2. Provisional patent applications covering the doping of natural and chemically vacuum deposited (CVD) diamond using FEDOA is too slow of a process to be economically feasible. Additional research into electrical applications of these provisional patents could be used with other doping processes to explore potential commercial applications.
3. Provisional patent applications for a System and Method for Removal of Imputities from materials such as semiconductors using FEDOA would require significantly more research to determine commercial value. Although the process appears to offer an increase yield of chips obtainable from wafers, the commercial viability is questionable because the FEDOA is very slow for commercial applications.
4. Provisional patent applications for Carbon Crystal Growth Using Electric Emission Enhanced Showerhead Hot Filament Chemical Vapor Deposition offers an improved process for the CVD process, but the applications and inventors do not have enough data to determine commercial viability.
The conclusion of the consultant and the company was not to continue the patent process of the above listed provisional patent applications because of (1) the limited economic viability due primarily to the process speed of FEDOA; (2) the high costs of patent counsel and the direct costs to obtain domestic and foreign patents; and (3) the potential exposure to royalty payments to the University of Missouri with corresponding costs of defending ownership of the patents.
Upon the recommendations of the consultant, the company met with its patent attorneys and determined that the application deadlines to extend the patents pending on the Manufacturing of Disperse Composite Materials had expired. As a result, the President met with the inventors of the patents and determined a commitment of $ 500,000 to $1,000,000 in capital would be needed to begin a development program for any commercial applications that would provide specific patent coverage for any process developed. Due to existing financing problems that the Company was facing, Rhombic's President recommended a merger with a private research and development company that had capital and scientists. Unfortunately, Rhombic never received enough information from the company to evaluate a merger and Rhombic's President subsequently resigned.
The Company does not have any employees and uses consultants for matters pertaining to coordinating technology development and administration. The Company may hire employees during the next twelve months depending upon its success in developing prototype applications for sale and financing more development.
Cash at Beginning of Period $93,384
Cash at End of Period $ 1,593 !!!!
im übrigen hab ich ja dazu schonmal was geschrieben:http://www.ariva.de/board/...l&showthread=1&nr=52385&search=Rhombic&1
und jetzt sind sie jawohl absolut pleite,können noch nicht mal mehr die möglicherweise noch geltenden Patente ,die sie zurückerwerben müssten,weiterentwickeln (woraufhin der CEO zurückgetreten ist!)und alle anderen Erfindungen lohnen sich nicht oder gehören der Universität von Missouri.
Typische Starikone-Empfehlung ohne Recherche,sind auf dem Niveau wieder interessant!Guckt Euch wenigstens den ungebrochenen Abwärtstrend im Chart an.
Ach übrigens:die Adresse von unserem alten Superpusher Drogo hab ich auch wieder gefunden:Markus Schneider Auf der Breite 13 D-79865 Grafenhausen (von seiner kurzfristigen Homepage) Tztztztz....
