March 2023: PV Nano froze in time and now they're attempting to unthaw again:
Can they be trusted? Has their proprietary techniques been replicated by another company?
Seems to me, that's the $64k question.
Yes. I read through the mess of pages. A legal nightmare where agreement seems to be only that a lot of smart people see this company as having a unique product capable of disrupting the field of printing. This truly is a tiny mouse company. Can it roar loud enough to bring attention to itself?
I am still here... promising products..
Nice surprise: this nano-ink engine still runs. A vote is set for April 7 and proxy cards are, hopefully, in the mail.
They have an amazing product. Hopefully they can build a management team to match.
The PV Nano technology seems great, and deserving of the chance at surviving in order to improve the world. But the company management seems to be something between the Keystone cops and The Three Stooges. What a terrible example of how to run a company into the ground.
I don't know what the hell happened these past months, or even years, but whatever it was, it nearly destroyed this smallcap company. The lack of transparency has broken all trust. The latest mailing requiring a vote shows a sh-tshow of shenanigans, requiring, if not demanding, a vote to, apparently, dig the board out of the latrine it seems to have fallen into. At least the vote seems to replace the top idiots in charge.
More positive news for the Mighty PVNano Cell:
MIGDAL HA'EMEK, Israel, March 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PV Nano Cell, Ltd. (OTCPink: PVNNF) ("PV Nano Cell" or the "Company"), an innovative provider of inkjet-based conductive digital printing solutions and producer of conductive digital inks, today announced it will be exhibiting in the online LOPEC 2021 exhibition, March 23rd to 25th (https://exhibitors.lopec.com/industry-directory/2021/list-of-companies/companydetails/pv-nano-cell/?elb=864.1100.1824.1.111&uls=2).
PV Nano Cell will demonstrate in the online exhibition its 5D complete solution offering for the printed electronics, mass-production applications. The 5D technology includes complete control over the 3-dimensional geometry, 1 dimension of the ink chemistry and an additional dimension of the printing process. The company's 5D technology is already implemented in focused target markets including the automotive, solar and embedded passive components. The company will also be presenting its DemonJet – low volume manufacturing printer now installed at customer sites and used amongst other, to print embedded passive components such as resistors and capacitors. In addition, PV Nano Cell will present its latest digital ink developments in silver-based, copper-based and the most recently introduced, gold-based digital ink.
PV Nano Cell’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Fernando de la Vega, commented, “LOPEC was always a great exhibition for us to meet with new and current customers and we are happy to exhibit online and demonstrate our one-of-a-kind digital printed solution for mass production applications. 3D printing is flourishing and PV Nano Cell is best positioned as the 3D printed electronics enabler. Despite the Coronavirus situation, we managed to grow our business significantly over the past year primarily with a mix of mass-production customers in the automotive and solar markets. We are now co-working with a giant passive components producer to develop additive manufacturing processes to print on-demand resistors and capacitors."
PV Nano Cell’s Chief of Business Development Officer, Mr. Hanan Markovich, commented, "Two years ago we started our strategic shift from ink-focused business to solution-focused business for mass production applications. I'm happy to say we are now reaping the fruits of this hard work and see tremendous market interest and willingness to cooperate and jointly develop digital printed solutions. We are working with leading automotive, solar and passive components companies and expect to consequently grow our business and number of customers this year. We invite everyone to digitally meet us at LOPEC 2021 and schedule online-meetings with the team to discuss how we can help you digitally print electronics in mass production."
This might explain today's leap. Just heard on CNBC that small caps today, as a group, was up, signaling a possible starting gun that it's okay to take a look at the smalls. Nice to see PVNNF getting a vote of confidence.
PV Nano Cell (PVNNF) has a new website: https://www.pvnanocell.com/
Maybe that explains today's doubling of the stock price. Or maybe it's this quotation from this article:
This remarkable tiny company needs one big order to catch the attention of the business press. How to get their ink into every apple and android phone on the planet? Or onto each chip, no matter how small. But as a small company, they can't scale large enough to handle giant orders, right? A large company can't send them jobs to print and then send back finished product. Where does the printing take place? Perhaps they could license-out their patents, and/or machines, to let Apple, Samsung and every chip giant to use PV tech in each companies own house.
Is PV Nano looking to be the king of this or are they hoping to be bought and integrated into the perfect giant company which needs this specific type of ink? Can't quite figure it out.
PV Nano Cell Signs Agreement with Healthcare Giant to Develop Sensors Digital Printing Solution Using Resistor & Gold Inks
GlobeNewswire GlobeNewswire•June 10, 2020
MIGDAL HA’EMEK, Israel, June 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PV Nano Cell Ltd. (OTC: PVNNF), (the “Company”), an innovative provider of inkjet-based conductive digital printing solutions and producer of conductive digital inks, today announced that it has signed, under NDA, an agreement with a well-known, world-leading multinational healthcare company to develop a new inkjet printing technology for the fabrication of sensors using resistor and gold inks.
As part of the funded project, PV Nano Cell will develop two project-dedicated inks. The first ink is a high resistance ink – resistor ink and the second ink is a gold based ink. After the successful completion of the inks development, PV Nano Cell will develop the printing process technology to allow mass-production inkjet printing of the sensors. The resistor ink is based on PV Nano Cell prior work and knowledge, developing breakthrough materials and process technologies for embedded passive components.
PV Nano Cell’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Fernando de la Vega, commented, “We are honored to have been selected by this world-renowned multinational company for the project. The technology we are developing is expected to result in a dramatic drop in the current cost of fabricating the sensors. PV Nano Cell is working on further developing and expanding of its technology to print embedded passive components. We have already printed resistors and also capacitors using conductive and dielectric ink and believe this is a strategic development applicable to many markets and applications. As recently announced, sensor solutions provider HENSOLDT together with Printed Electronics (PE) provider, Nano Dimension Ltd., recently succeeded in assembling the world-wide first 10-layer inkjet printed circuit board (PCB). The board carries a high-performance electronic structures soldered to both outer sides. We believe such advancements prove the need and feasibility of embedded passive components.”
PV Nano Cell’s Chief of Business Development Officer, Mr. Hanan Markovich commented, “The technology we are now developing is expected to have a dramatic impact on the bottom-line cost of production of our partner’s sensors. The development is well on its way and we’re expecting to meet all milestones as planned. We look forward to finish the development of the two inks and start working on the printing process. During the project, our DemonJet printer will be used to print both the resistor and gold inks. We further plan to use our printer to print dielectric ink as well. Using our 10 channels print head, the DemonJet is capable of printing multiple materials and thus print embedded passive components.”

Proposal to Develop a Break-through Protective Technology against the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
DigiFlex, a PV Nano Cell Subsidiary, Submits to the Israeli Innovation Authority a Proposal to Develop a Break-through Protective Technology against the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Tue March 31, 2020 10:54 AM|GlobeNewswire|About: PVNNF
MIGDAL HA'EMEK, Israel, March 31, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PV Nano Cell, Ltd. (OTC: PVNNF) ("PV Nano Cell" or the "Company"), an innovative provider of inkjet-based conductive digital printing solutions and producer of conductive digital inks, today announced that it has successfully submitted to the Israeli Innovation Authority, through its fully owned subsidiary DigiFlex, a proposal to develop a breakthrough protective technology that will protect people from being infected by the Coronavirus and possibly other viruses.
As the Coronavirus pandemic expands, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends people wash their hands frequently, maintain social distancing, avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth and practice respiratory hygiene. All of these measures are required to avoid allowing the virus to enter a person's body. Furthermore, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently reported the coronavirus RNA was found in Princess Cruise ship cabins up to 17 days after the passengers left. The highly contagious nature of the virus combined with its survivability for weeks on surfaces results in high number of patients and casualties and has devastating world-economics implications. Current behavioral guidelines primarily focus on avoiding infection between individuals, but do not address as much the high risk that individuals are becoming infected by exposure to contaminated surfaces.
DigiFlex, a wholly owned subsidiary of PV Nano Cell, has today submitted to the Israeli Innovation Authority a proposal to develop a protective technology against the coronavirus and possibly additional viruses. The proposed technology is both cost efficient and can easily be used by the general population. The company is planning to use PV Nano Cell's patented conductive silver and copper inks - SicrysTM that are Single Nano Crystals based. PV Nano Cell’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Fernando de la Vega, commented, “In these challenging times we researched and found our single nano crystal technology could prove highly effective against the coronavirus, after we have already proved the antibacterial performance of these nano particles. Our single crystal technology combined with our complete solution approach know-how will enable us to quickly develop the first products. We will be more than happy to focus our efforts on fighting the coronavirus and helping as many people as possible. We have a detailed plan to optimize our chemistry so it reacts with the virus and eliminates it from surfaces protected by our inks. We have a vision and supportive plan to offer a complete solution that will support many additional applications, such as protective covers for doorknobs, wipes and many more. Our team did a fantastic job by putting tremendous effort in the past few days to formalize the plan and write the detailed proposal that was submitted today.”
PV Nano Cell’s Chief of Business Development Officer, Mr. Hanan Markovich commented, “We are very excited about this proposal and hope to have it approved as quickly as possible. Obtaining the financing for this solution development will allow us to move forward and introduce the first solution. We have carefully thought on not only the anti-coronavirus ink technology but also the ways to use it in a cost-effective, consumable manner in a wide range of applications. Our proposed technology addresses the many forms in which people may become infected by touching surfaces instead of being in close proximity to a contagious person.We also have a plan to make the technology accessible and useable by anyone with simple means. Furthermore, we believe our solution will prove effective not only in the near future and during the coronavirus crisis, but for regular use in the long term as well. We hope to see this technology regularly used in hospitals, public places and by the general public. Finally, we call for cooperation, support and help from potential partners and individuals.”

Seems like a rookie mistake. Spending too much prior to earning income. I'm beginning to see this too often in small companies.
Look at the bottom of the press release you posted a link to. Two IR firms and the CEO. Waste of money paying IR firms for nothing.
What press release?
I agree there is no demand and not sure why. The press I've read is all good.
