    Jaw74 I understand that the recent results have not been that overwhelming. If you read the articles on the following link then it will give you a good understanding on the company and the challenges it faces.


    I think this company has a game changing future but dyor.

  • Potential new investor by JAW74
    Fri, 03 Oct 2014 09:54:00 GMT

    Hello, I've been reading up on Active Energy and think it looks interesting.
    Before putting money in I try and take a negative view until proven otherwise and I welcome any comments from this forum.

    WH Ireland has a target price of 6p.
    I argue that this is too high because they made an assumption of 310,000 MT shipment for 2014, and even higher for 2015.
    The half yearly results show the following shipments:
    H1 = 100,814
    Q3 = 52,544 (plus 13,000 on route)
    TOTAL to date = 166,358 (way short of the 310k target even with another quarter to go).

    Furthermore the Spain and Motenegro business looks disappointing.

    The new pelleting technology looks exciting but taking a new tech from R&D to commercialisation requires a lot of funding, and time therefore I don't see this being able to contribute to a rise to 6p at this stage.

    Your thoughts welcome as i do more research before making a decision... By JAW74
  • Richard Spinks Interview by DreamBeaver

    Just in case any pi's are suffering anxiety with this investment...


    Add to this his recent share purchase at 3.06p...I think it fair to say there is only one likely direction for the sp. Moreover sooner rather than later on the strength of the interview.

  • Almost 4,000 votes - update...! by dickie3times
    Sun, 15 Jun 2014 09:48:00 GMT

    Can penny shares be 'shorted' ?
    ....Yes , all the time...but the mm's need to 'borrow' your shares to enable the 'bet' to be transacted. IT's a bet rather than an investment and CANNOT 'win' for the 'shorter' unless the price falls.!

    IF the stock looks healthy and unlikely to fall, then the shorter will almost certainly 'lose'unless he can 'help' the stock down....Now how the hell can he possibly do that ?

    * OFF TOPIC but important that all AIM investors understand the pitfalls of investing in stocks that are being shorted down to rock-bottom levels?

    So you think that is 'cute', now you can buy at the lowest sp for months?'ve gotta be on:-

    ~ *3,995 voted so far ~THEY CAN'T ALL BE WRONG?
    (That's a lot of irate investors?)

    # Thanks to all those that have supported this HMGovt epetition !

    Many pi's are questioning the validity of 'short selling' and are voting in their thousands....the people have spoken, they are feeling hurt and disenfranchised.

    The 'not so quick' and 'unsavvy' cannot be blamed for having their life's savings 'shorted' away just because they cannot spend hours on end glued to their computer screens. Having to work during trading hours, investors cannot keep in touch with hourly movements on stocks that they have chosen for their retirement and had them locked into ISA's. What gives shorters the given right to play down stocks at their own leisure thus profiting at everyone else's loss....on perfectly good stocks with sound fundamentals?

    ..campaign heading for 4,000 !

    HMGovt epitition to make short-selling illegal (or better regulated?)

    **did ya vote?

    Full post:

    HMGovt-epitition (closes 24th September 2014, so still plenty of time to get those votes in)

    A lot of irate investors ... are voting for this campaign...?

    *How the big players transfers YOUR money into THEIR money !


    *Davide Serra,
    Chief fund manager and banking adviser to the Govt wants the FCA to investigate!

    Ever wondered why your investments often go down, even on GOOD NEWS ?

    IT is estimated that over 90% of AIM stocks are INFESTED by short-sellers !

    Many highly popular stocks are going down even when the news is positive !

    IF you think it will help....*post the link/s on, (including my full post if you want?)LSE, Advfn, twitter, iii, anywhere !

    At last this share is starting to provide some return. I would class myself a longer term holder in aeg as have held this share for several years - benefiting from a lot of the peaks and troughs. I believe this share is showing it's greatest potential and could be a multi bagger as we go in to 2015. Mr Spinks has a proven track record and for what he has already demonstrated with aeg, I cannot believe this share isn't higher. The recent media coverage has been tremendous. I have two questions,

    1. What do we think the 2013 results will show? Due next week.

    2. What's your thoughts for the share as we progress through 2014 and why are we still sat a market cap of c. 12m with such growth potential and strong management team?

    Appreciate your thoughts and would like to try and get this thread going with some valuable discussions.

    Your absolutely right Zeetruth; AEG are the first to ever negotiate such a deal, which makes me very proud to be part of this amazing bellwether storey.

    They are turning a profit, which is assiting in developing the long game with Canada, makes sense, the situation in Ukraine will improve it was just a shock to the system for the country but by all accounts they are getting around it. Who knows with Ukraine moving in the direction of the EU and away from Russian Gas they may have other options too, all in all I am happy at a solid 3p. Something for Canada (The Big Game) will come in the New Year without a doubt the deal is just a slam dunk for anyone who wants to secure feedstock and AEG are the first of their kind to do such a deal.

    Thu, 11 Dec 2014 13:09:59 GMT

    Increased woodchip production, growth in revenues, huge increase in gross margin, massively reduced finance costs, successful relocation to a safer and hopefully less disrupted area, successful installation of new high-volume wood chipping equipment, continuing strong demand from customers with new supply contracts on the horizon, strong likelyhood of turning a profit next year, and, all being well, further good news from Canada to be delivered soon. Virtually no sign of bad news, other than some local problems with access to ports which will reduce as we go through the winter. So, the share price drops on AIM! It's a mad world!

    Been re-reading the Trading Update on the AEG website at


    and realised that I'd missed the best news of all... "the Group has renegotiated its financing costs from their current level of $5.00 per metric tonne of delivered product to $1.00 per metric tonne with effect from 1 March 2015." Imagine what that will do the bottom line moving forward - an additional $4.00 margin per tonne!
  • RE: trading update released today... by Blazer
    Thu, 11 Dec 2014 11:54:15 GMT

    I agree this makes good reading. Most outstanding parts for me are - Commenting on the results, Active Energy Group Plc CEO Richard Spinks, said, " It should be noted that we are utilising the funds from our profitable Ukrainian operations to fund our continued investment in the Group's Canadian forestry joint venture, about which the Board remains very positive." Active Energy Group Plc Finance Director Brian Evans-Jones, further commented "I am pleased that my first communication with AEG's shareholders is to report the Group's first-ever quarterly operating profit. The team are reporting "operating profit" whilst funding the Canadian Forestry JV and the fuel pelleting technology. They have also successfully switched Ports from Mykolaiv to Yuzhny, (which is apparently more modern, secure and efficient). They also installed additional chipping capacity at Yuzhny to meet increasing demand. The only downside I can see is the new "importation programme" which has already caused port delays and slowed up the delivery volumes below target levels. I hope this doesn't upset our customers or prevent us from landing new ones as deliveries will be subject to logistics capabilities. All in all a good positive RNS. I personally want to hear more about the JV in Canada and the sale of permits. Zeetruth/ Seattle, your thoughts ?
  • trading update released today... by bukowski
    Thu, 11 Dec 2014 08:57:20 GMT

    ... includes some good news: "growth in trading volumes and revenues, improvements in operating efficiencies and reporting systems, and an agreement on improved financing terms". The best news is that Q3 gross margins are around 300% higher than in the first half of the year, and now exceed $20.00 per metric tonne - that's a huge uplift over previous numbers, and if it can be maintained gives the company a solid foundation to support its new business activities. I expect that it'll be published on the AEG website at fairly soon.

    -- 'The Board had anticipated significantly higher volumes in Q3:2014 and Q4:2014, which would have resulted in its first profitable full year, but due to the cessation of coal and iron ore shipments from the east of the country, the Ukrainian government implemented an importation programme for the first time, which caused port delays for all exporters. This limited export and delivery volumes to well below target levels, which has inevitably resulted in lower revenues and profitability than would otherwise have been achieved. The Board had hoped to make good this shortfall in December, however it now considers this unlikely.' --

    Tue, 25 Nov 2014 08:35:25 GMT

    Well worth a read this is money if not already done so, the below paragraph is just awesome. "What the group actually does to earn its money. Its wood chip business, acquired in June 2013, processes around 1,200 tonnes of logs a day into wood chip at its facility at Yuzhny Port in Ukraine, which is then exported in bulk cargo vessels across the Black Sea to MDF (medium-density fibreboard) manufacturers in Turkey" Two years ago it was lucky to ship 4,300 tonnes over the course of a year; now it does that in less than four days.
