Timing is everything here. UQM's stock price just a couple days before the filing for 15 million shares was in the low $3 range. $2.44 seems much more reasonable in that light. Also, the filing preceded the announcement of the 45 million stimulus… More

This is about as textbook a case of a company on its way out as I have seen. Revenue has declined precipitously over the past 5 years, from $10MM to about $4MM a year. Expenses have not declined, and more interesting, R&D spend hasn't budged until… More

This is about as textbook a case of a company on its way out as I have seen. Revenue has declined precipitously over the past 5 years, from $10MM to about $4MM a year. Expenses have not declined, and more interesting, R&D spend hasn't budged until very recently. In the past few quarters, R&D is finally being cut, which is one of the bigger signs that this company is in trouble. Cash remains at about $8.5MM, but this company is pretty well known for burning $3-4MM in free cash per year, at the low end. Looks like prior government "investments" have saved them, but I wouldn't count on that moving forward.

"UQM Technologies, Inc., (UQM) develops, manufactures and sells electric motors, generators and power electronic controllers for the commercial truck, bus, automobile, marine and military markets. UQM's principal products include propulsion motors and generators with power ratings from 50 kilowatts to 250 kilowatts, auxiliary motors and electronic controls, and direct current (DC)-to-DC converters. UQM offers two basic frame size propulsion systems: the PowerPhase Pro for passenger car, light commercial applications, light duty marine and other lighter duty applications, and the PowerPhase heavy duty (HD) range of products for commercial bus and truck applications, and marine and other HD applications. It provides motor and controller systems for full-electric, hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid and fuel cell applications. UQM also provides units for non-automotive markets, including the energy management market, auxiliary systems, and motor and controller systems for aircraft."

They've begun tapping the equity markets again, but I am not sure how much stomach shareholders will have for additional dilution. No debt, but with a company that has this poor a balance sheet, I doubt they have a huge amount of access to credit markets. It might be more than year, but this company will eventually find itself in BK court.
