The cause for the rally earlier this month was due to Wanxiang Group Corporation, one of China’s largest automotive component suppliers, who stepped in offering up to $450 million in a non-binding MoU. A123′s liquidity is the main issue hindering the electric vehicle battery makerand why it’s trading at nearly 25% of book value; $1.27 a share. Without the deal, chances are A123 Systems could have seen a “Q” added to its ticker in the near future and become better known as A!@# Systems.
With widening net losses ($82.9 million in Q2 versus $55.4 million a year ago), Q2 revenue is also an indication why the shares in the Company have frightened away investors booking only $17 million, 53% less than the same period last year. The leprosy-affect of sales and liquidity is opening the door for a slew of day traders to start flipping AONE stock like two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame-seed bun.
