Master RSI - 28 Jul 2010 12:29

Cyan offers flexible solutions for the remote monitoring and control of lights, energy meters and industrial telemetry.
Cyan's solutions are based on a comprehensive standard product portfolio of RF based gateways and nodes.
Metering: Gas, Electricity, Water
Lighting: Street, Tunnel, Architectural,
Industrial Telemetry: Process control, Thermo eco telemetry, Weather

Pre-close update, said:
That its "decisive action and substantial cost cutting" leaves the company in a strong position for 2010.
It has spent much time and effort in supporting prospective customers, with volume order confirmations expected in the new year.

Future prospects
Has successfully secured and maintained key partnerships, most recently with Future Electronics Inc, a top three worldwide electronic component distributor with divisions focussed on metering and lighting products.

Has successfully completed two equity placings to new and existing investors during the period, raising a total of 3.0 million of new money to fund working capital requirements to support customer trial orders and partnerships.

Directors Buying:
Over 4 Millions share were bought by directors during this month

For all this motives the shares at 1.15p are worth taking some aboard

lectricity Metering Networks
Electricity utilities and meter manufacturers are investigating ways of introducing Advanced Meter Reading (AMR) and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) to their businesses.

These technologies can significantly improve the information made available to energy service providers, including detailed energy usage profiles, diagnostic and status data from metering devices, and instantaneous usage from industrial and domestic consumers. This in turn helps to reduce the cost of taking readings, and prevent financial loss due to the fraudulent use of supplies. Load balancing can also be improved when information on instantaneous usage is provided. In addition consumers can benefit from improved information on their energy usage patterns by making better use of off-peak tariffs.

Cyan offers wireless Point-to-Point (P2P) and Meshing solutions for electricity AMR/AMI. Cyan's P2P solution use its ISM frequency band RF nodes (433/470/868/915/865 MHz). These allow a handheld meter reading device to directly communicate with each meter. Cyans meshing solution uses the same RF nodes to connect meters to a GPRS Gateway. A CyNet mesh network is formed around the gateway, which can be used to collate energy profiles, receive instantaneous readings, and send tariff updates to the meter. Cyan's GPRS Gateways can automatically monitor the mesh network and collect meter readings. Each GRPS Gateway has a RF node to connect to the local mesh network and GPRS modem for remote collection and monitoring from the backhaul system

Gas Metering Networks
A rise in energy prices and increasing focus on environmental issues has led to the demand for energy efficiency. As a result governments are legislating for the provision of Automated Meter Reading with a long term plan to move to fully Automated Metering Infrastructure

Cyan offers a wireless gas meter network solution that enables city wide deployment of wireless gas meters. The network uses Cyan's Cy-Net low power mesh network over ISM band (433/470/868/915/865 MHz). Each gas meter becomes an RF node on the network communicating with other RF nodes as well as mains powered concentrator gateways. The concentrators, Cyan's GPRS Gateways, automatically monitor the mesh network and collect readings from the meters.

Each GRPS Gateway has a RF node to connect to the local mesh network as well as GPRS for backhaul to remote central collection and monitoring system.

Cyan's range of gateways and radio nodes can be used in a wide variety of monitoring and control applications. The RF nodes have on board resources such as Analogue to Digital converters with 12-bit resolution, digital inputs and outputs, timers and counters.

These can be used with external circuitry to sense conditions such as temperature, humidity, and movement. The combination of these resources, the Cy-Net radio mesh, and GPRS gateway can then be used to report telemetry to a central point, and/or send control signals to each remote node.

Street and Tunnel Lighting
With the rise of energy pricing and new regulation, operators of public lighting systems are driven to reduce operating costs. These reductions can be achieved by remotely controlling each lamp and managing its brightness according to need and by decreasing maintenance requirements by detecting faults remotely.

Cyan's technologies and products provide a complete control and communications network and user interface to lighting manufacturers. This complete system solution allows lighting manufacturers to manufacture and sell RF controlled street and tunnel lighting systems.

this has been the dog of my portfolio for many years have they actually got any orders ?? no idea how they keep raising money to keep afloat still got about 100k of these be nice to get 2-3p for them one day

cielo - 03 Nov 2010 09:15 - 52 of 267

Its a winner today and yesterday

RXCBS - 03 Nov 2010 10:42 - 53 of 267

Are directors buying or taking instead of a salary as cash is tight ?
The clue is in the issuing of shares rather than the buying of shares

moneyplus - 03 Nov 2010 11:54 - 54 of 267

The directors have bought shares and are also taking shares in lieu. It's a very risky buy but I hold some as they must have great faith in their product and it's now very much in their interest to get the sp rising steadily. They are in the right markets and the rumours are that orders are about to come in from the cos who have been trialling the product maybe an Indian order. One good contract signed could be start of a transformation and I think that's why the directors are putting everything into keeping the co afloat! risky but promising --research well!!

required field - 03 Nov 2010 12:53 - 55 of 267

A good contract would double the sp.

required field - 11 Nov 2010 09:31 - 56 of 267

An initial order...the first of many I suppose....good start....

RXCBS - 23 Nov 2010 11:20 - 57 of 267

looks like slipped into the dog mode again ....

ptholden - 23 Nov 2010 19:15 - 58 of 267

It's been a dog since it was floated by Barry Muncaster, aka MDX and a few others.

hangon - 07 Dec 2010 13:51 - 59 of 267

Dir. purchases below 50k, IMHO say Stay-away....this recent purchase was 5k - DYOR
ptholden are you 1)likening MDX--CYAN - or is/was there 2)shared Direcorship?
(FWIW I was always suspicious of MDX, couldn't sell their film during BSE-crisis)
I'll agree CYAN goes Woof! -but it's still here, and whilst the Co is always "hoping" I don't believe they've shouted excessivly, thereby raising punters' hopes.....this co is dependent upon this "meter-reading" being rolled out....such things are dreams of energy-execs (since 1970's) but it's always been too expensive. Now we have proved that Gogl can get data by driving-by, so it's possible for "New meter-man" to drive by -OR- use the phone network text-msg facility.... this infrastructure is here...all that's needed is the willingness (and meter investment)
That's the stumbling block, IMHO =- in these times will the Public accept a hike (so power-Co's can make more profit?), to pay for the new kit?.
I doubt it, so there is still a Wall of Issues - and this Co is pretty quiet about the roll-out.....or, did I miss the Big Push?

If I did, then so did Dirs...otherwise, why not put in 50k at these low-levels...?

ptholden - 07 Dec 2010 19:26 - 60 of 267


Muncaster has either floated or been involved in the flotation of a quite few AIM comps, I don't think any of them have survived to provide the longer term investor a return; in fact entirely the opposite, CYAN is about the only one still listed. Anyone who got into this pile of dog poo at flotation will have lost the majority of their cash.

required field - 08 Dec 2010 08:40 - 62 of 267

Could be a star of 2011.....I'm expecting a lot more orders like that....

cielo - 08 Dec 2010 11:43 - 63 of 267

That is what they need orders and then more orders with good margins .......

Cyan wins China public lighting control order

Cyan has won an initial order for wireless monitoring and control of outdoor public lighting in China.

The initial order is for 10,000 modules, and installation will start after the Chinese New Year in Q1 2011.

The customer's initial project requires the replacement of 200,000 street lights in a single city and the installation rate is expected to exceed 10,000 units per month by Q4 2011.

The end customer is a large established Chinese lighting manufacturer which says it has already won, or expects to win, contracts in three further cities, albeit for smaller projects.

moneyplus - 09 Dec 2010 12:13 - 64 of 267

China cracked also India--the potential here is obviously massive imo. I held on here hoping the co would survive, the bod put money in and took shares in lieu so backed their technology----looks as though it's soon to pay off! next year a good one I hope. DYOR!

RXCBS - 09 Dec 2010 16:26 - 65 of 267

china cracked ????? and Q4 of 2011 before any 'real' sales I've been with this sometime and its always failed to deliver

ptholden - 09 Dec 2010 18:12 - 66 of 267

Probably took shares MP because there wasn't any money to take!

RXCBS - 11 Jan 2011 11:20 - 67 of 267

so whats driving the 20% rise today ???

hangon - 11 Jan 2011 12:15 - 68 of 267

Insider OR Hot air I suspect, no RNS and Dir buying (ie Cash) 7k early Dec2010......hardly a vote of confidence.
This is a sickly puppy tied to an old gas meter, badly needs a walk, which is what retail shareholders should have done years ago.
Any remote meter-reading will take years to roll-out and it's only the meter-maker that may make some dough, not this tiny chipper - all IMHO. If it came to it, there are plenty of Si chip designers that can manage similar projects and I suspect the roll-out would go to competitive tender - why would any Energy Authority let CYAN name their price?.
Does anyone serioously think China/India can't make meter-reading chips?

It would be nice to see some Brit. success; but as always Co's are left to fight solo until the cash runs out. . . . . will we never invest in ourselves?
Oh yessir, plenty of money for Olympics, for a hanfull of medals and then sell-off the stadium to friends - where is the mass-employment future in that?

cielo - 11 Jan 2011 15:03 - 69 of 267

Moving into a BREAKOUT from recent attemps to go over 1.15p


cielo - 14 Jan 2011 09:52 - 70 of 267

1.55p +0.30p or 24%

BREAK OUT well ahead with volume buying

The break out is doing wonders for the share price, one of the top risers of the day
