Liquidmetal Technologies Inc (OTCMKTS:LQMT) has had a busy FY2014 since it has filed for about 14 patents along with Apple.Inc. Still the company generated just $603 thousand, amid gaining partnership with a number of companies. Currently, the company has been busy with developing prototype technologies for its partners. The company did report $10 million in cash, in its FY2014. This was a $7.9 million increase from last year, despite the costs of operations registering a $2.3 million rise. Despite this performance, the company had continued to decline in the days following the announcement of FY2014. The company believes that low revenues reflect on the number of investments the company has made in the year.
LQMT, however, does enjoy the superiority of patenting its Liquidmetal family of alloys. These make use of the advantages offered by amorphous alloy technology. There was some bad decision making by the company, in its initial years, which still haunt it today. The company had a great start with a billion dollar market value. Unfortunately, its initial product was not ready for the market and after bad management, the company crashed terribly and landed in the penny stock market.
LQMT alloys are high in demand in the industry since they offer a wide range of properties. The different mixes of the alloys are capable of being molded into exact shapes while overcoming the crystal properties of the mixture. In most cases, the material is seen to behave like plastic. The company still has great potential, if it can only market its products properly. There a number of applications, in a variety of industries; this would require the use of LQMT alloys to make substantial advancements. Its partnership with Apple has proved to be very fruitful, with regular business flowing in and the company finally being able to attract a good management team. The company was also able to pay off all its debts, with the initial amount it got from signing a deal with Apple. Once the patents get approved, the company would see substantial growth, both in and out of the market.
Liquidmetal Technologies Inc (OTCMKTS:LQMT) closed at $0.128 adding another 1.59% to its value.
