    Low float due to reverse split. Just wait until CDTI releases a decent business revenue related PR

    Kanis and Bell and Topsoe all will control roughly 70% of post split shares outstanding. That said all are insiders and knew very well when they bought their positions that it was a long term investment that(especially for Kanis) had little chance of selling in the open market without being part of a secondary or a sale of the company.
    Kanis wants post split $4-$6 which at the high range is only a $60 million market cap which could be achieved if Topsoe and CDTI work together to address markets.
    Also Kanis knows his first choice to sell his shares is Topsoe so the two could make it happen the time they choose.
    BEALE would love to "paint CDTI red and call it new" and sell the company for $50 million or above.
    He has no ties to SoCal and would like to show wallstreet he does deals and get a bigger CEO gig.

    Is this company for real? What will they do without Honda?
    The low valuation is appealing but lots of negatives including a history of very dilutive fund raises.

    Anyone know that their Spinel technology is for real or not?

    Things must really be looking up for CDTI! From the latest 8K issued after close on Friday, December 16th.

    Effective December 16, 2016, the Company adopted the Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. 2016 Omnibus Incentive Plan. The Plan authorizes the issuance of an aggregate of 2,250,000 shares of Common Stock.
     
    The Plan is administered by the Compensation and Nominating Committee of the Board (the “ Compensation Committee ”). The Investors include 4 employees and directors of the Company, each of whom purchased shares of Common Stock on the same terms and conditions as the other Investors, and who collectively purchased at the Second Closing 277,500 shares for an aggregate purchase price of $555,000.

    On December 16, 2016, the Compensation Committee completed its review of the total compensation of the Company’s executive officers. In connection with its review, the Compensation Committee approved revised compensation arrangements and equity incentive awards for certain of its executive officers.

     The base salary for Matthew Beale, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, was increased from $250,000 to $300,000, effective as of January 1, 2017. The Compensation Committee further approved with respect to Mr. Beale (i) a one-time cash bonus in the sum of $37,500 and (ii) a housing allowance in the aggregate sum of $25,000, payable in 12 equal monthly installments beginning on January 1, 2017. Additionally, Mr. Beale was awarded an option to purchase 480,000 shares of Common Stock.

     The base salary for Stephen Golden, Chief Technical Officer of the Company, was increased from $225,000 to $250,000, effective as of January 1, 2017. The Compensation Committee further approved with respect to Mr. Golden a one-time cash bonus of $37,500. Additionally, Mr. Golden was awarded an option to purchase 120,000 shares of Common Stock.

     Tracy Kern, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, was awarded an option to purchase 75,000 shares of Common Stock. ..... What ...... why no bonus?

     Each of the aforementioned stock option grants were made pursuant to the Plan and will vest 1/3 on the date of grant with the remaining 2/3 to vest in four equal annual installments, subject to continued service on behalf of the Company through the applicable vesting date.

    It warms my heart to see that things are finally going so well for CDTI and that their “executives” can be better compensated for their outstanding achievements. It would be interesting to know which executives and/or the directors purchased stock.

    TIC ….. Roger

    ps. It also warms my heart that Beals new compensation package still falls well short of what a former employee is making at his new job.

    OK ….. It's time for another one of my “cryptic posts” and sometimes “seemingly” random blather …... although I may “beat around the bush” a bit, I think its important for those still holding CDTI, to read this post and at least consider my views.

    My daughter and I just returned from a family wedding in Michigan ….. we found it a very pleasant and enlightening experience. It was especially nice to catch-up on the latest news from all members of my extended family. I always find it interesting to listen to various opinions and to share what we might think on a variety of subjects.

    I had previously mentioned that I was considering some tax-loss selling in early December but I've changed my mind. One of the prime positions I considered shedding was CDTI …. but no more. Is it because I made a critical mistake and bought the majority of my CDTI position in sheltered accounts? Yes, that has something to do with it ….. or maybe its because I have almost nothing else to sell at a tax-loss ….. its been a very very good year thus far.

    So ….. my current plan is to wait at least another “six to eight weeks” to see if the news for CDTI brightens a bit. If not, I'll likely bail on all of my CDTI positions (regardless of account) but ….. if the news does improve, I'll likely hold longer to see what else may be on the horizon.

    Best of luck Roger

    can cdti rise from the dead after years of destroying shareholder value? I think it has finally possibly hit rock bottom and looks kind of interesting. It has decent revenues and margins should improve with its new business model. it has partnerships in china and india. there is insider buying. as difficult as this is for me to say given the horrible history here -this company has a chance - it could even be bought out...

    Trumps comment today (12/6) regarding the currently estimated cost of two new Air Force One planes gives me encouragement.

    He stated that the $4B estimated cost for the two new planes, which are scheduled for delivery in 2023 and are part of another cost plus plus Air Force Contract, is “way out of line and we should cancel the contract.”

    If you bear in mind that these planes are based on an existing commercially available air frame it should become even more apparent just how efficient our military is at wasting money, assuring their jobs and/or funneling money to their buddies (and oft-times future employers). $1.65B has been allocated through 2020 for “development” of these planes …. think about that.

    The price of a brand new Boeing 747-8 is about $357M.

    Lastly, its extremely unlikely that this program would come in on budget ….. I can't recall a recent large Air Force contract that came in “even close to on-budget” or on time.

    Let's hope this is a precursor of things to come, but if not, it's just your money ….. that you have so generously given the government ….. with no regard as to accountability on how it's spent.

    Wow!
    No reason for this to occur with what all knew what is in the filings.
    Kanis would sell his entire position right now for 3.50-4.00.
    Topsoe had the choice to buy $5 million at $1.62 adjusted for split and only took $1.75 million.
    My firm has HTB allowing for no shorting of shares. Over $5 everyone should hit the bid.

    I'm getting really tired of hearing that Clinton won the popular vote.

    Did you know that in California (George's home state) Clinton beat Trump by 4,269,978 votes ...... so ask yourself do you want the idiots or liberals (the terms are interchangeable IMO) in one state to determine presidential election results?

    But more importantly how can George continue to live in such a high tax liberal environment .... remember George, when they run out of other peoples money the state of California is in deep trouble ...... think CALPERS.

    I returned today after closing my camp for the winter (gone 10 days)….. and found the following.

    YTD Dow +9.18%, NASDAQ + 7.57%, S&P + 7.78% and Roger +20.63% ….. much better than I expected. I now believe the market will continue an up-trend with maybe a dip when the FED raises interest rates in December.

    So ….. IMHO now is not a time for buying or selling ….. if you're not fully invested and want to jump on the band wagon wait for a FED announcement ….. just my opinion since I'm almost fully invested.

    I will do some tax loss selling in early December and if a dip does come I'll use the proceeds to invest. The question is where will I invest ….. in something I already hold or in something else?

    CDTI performance is disappointing (especially DuraFit) and it would not surprise me if they spun something off …. remember most of the Honda volume will likely disappear in April 2017 …. will Honda re-up in some way or will they be mostly gone?

    If you do the arithmetic regarding the Kanis, Bell and Topsoe loans you'll find out that Kanis now has about 5.286M shares, Bell has about 315K shares and IF ….. I say IF ….. Topsoe elects to convert their loans they will have about 2.08M shares. Topsoe could elect to be paid cash of about $1.3M for their interest at year end.

    So ….. If Topsoe converts the following applies: Kanis owns 26.43%, Bell 1.57%, Topsoe 10.4% and us 19.8% for a total of 58.2% of available shares …. leaving 8.36M shares or 41.8% of shares available.

    All of the above calculations include accrued interest for both Kanis and Bell converted debt and outstanding Topsoe debt.

    I should include, since dbtunr continually brings it up, that at last report CDTI owed Faunus $4.109M dollars which is SECURED by accounts receivable and inventory and is part of a revolving credit line of $7.5M. If Faunus elects to cease this credit line they must purchase from CDTI available receivables and inventory to cover outstanding loans at 80% of value with 20% retained as a reserve for any possible shortfall after disposal. I sincerely doubt this will happen ….. the biggest risk with Faunus IMO, is that they refuse to allow any further draw on this secured $7.5M credit line …. which, IMO, is only a remote possibility since they are being paid at +2.5% over prime on these loans.

    Youse guys do da arithmetic and tell me where I've gone wrong …. if youse can.

    As I recall you previously indicated you were somewhat of a computer expert ….. if so, I need your help in understanding something.

    I just read a wire service story in the local newspaper that Huma Aberdeen had PREVIOUSLY told the FBI that when Clinton wanted a copy of an email that she (Huma) would send the email to her personal Yahoo account in order to print them because printing them on the State Department system was too “clunky.”

    #1. Do you believe this?
    #2. If Huma had previously to this to the FBI (as written in the wire service story) ….. why has it taken so long for the FBI to access Huma's account content?
    #3. If it is found that any of these emails contained “classified information” should Huma be prosecuted?
    #4. Huma apparently did send emails to an unsecured server. What other reasons might she have had for doing this? Job security? A future book deal? Remaining employed at the State Department, the White House, the Clinton campaign staff or the Clinton Foundation?

    IMHO there's a lot more to this than we now know ….. weather it involves Clinton, Aberdeen or both remains yet be seen.

    Here's a little thought starter.

    President-elect Trump has stated that one of his objectives is to re-patriot the funds of American businesses now held offshore.

    If Trump is “allowed” to do this, what could be the impact? Let's assume that the amount of funds held offshore is only $2T. If those funds are returned at let's say a 10% tax rate, that would put $200B in the pocket of our Treasury ….. good news for the United States and perhaps for those businesses, since their money may then be held in a more stable economy.

    Now ….. think about the potential impact of such a move on those offshore financial institutions AND their linkage to American financial institutions. If we assume the funds held offshore are leveraged at only a 10% rate, and they were all be returned ….... there would be an immediate $20T impact.

    What could happen to the world financial “house of cards,” offshore liquidity and the economies of certain countries?

    Can you now begin understand why the “financial elite” backed Clinton and how most of our “foreign allies” also backed Clinton? In the final analysis its ALWAYS about money and power.

    Think about it ….. and TRY to restrict your responses to the content of this post..... America First ….. elections do have consequences!

    Wow SEC filing registering shares has CEO and CFO and others selling shares. Either they expct to dump on first pop or don't see much upside coming. I would not buy shares until all these little investors blow out shares. I don't see many holding for too long but maybe with $10 million in and a total of 16 million outstanding a value of $35 million is not that high. Comments?

    Let's change the subject a bit to another off-topic “thought starter.”

    As we all know Syria and Allepo are constantly in the news. That makes me wonder how is Syria sustaining itself financially? Who is loaning them the money and/or canceling their debt? The obvious answer is Russia and Iran but there could be “other undisclosed players.”

    How much of a long-term burden will continuing to finance Syria place on Russia's and Iran”s already weak economies? What will Russia and Iran get for continued Syrian funding other than oil deals and the purchase of Syrian land and/or infrastructure? In short, nobody with any brains is willing to lay out billions of dollars for many years without getting something in return ….. unless its the United States.

    If oil prices remain low Russia and Iran economies will continue to suffer and financially supporting Syria for many years will result in a lot of financial pain for them.

    In the past some have speculated that Russia's entry into Syria was a ploy to suck the United States into this disaster financially ….. under the umbrella of humanitarian aid ….. something I can believe. Let's hope that we don't end up being the bag holders.
