Hey dear leader, FJ...

How about you do a proper comparison and include SV's options, too.

Salaries across the board are higher at POET.

Also - the 2021 bonuses were well earned considering during the year management's actions took the company from a ~$100 million valuation to nearly a $2 billion valuation. A proper NASDAQ uplist.

Enjoy that scotch!! It’s real! All that matters!

This other dreaming of winning it big on penny tech stocks was always a very long shot.

There is nothing Poet has that others are not doing just a different method. Whatever Poet says they have not signed up the big transceiver OEMs. Ok Adtran, Luxshare and a couple of tier 2
Players. No more interest in their light bar products.

Sorry not much hope Jmo.

Virtual shareholder meeting.

What a disappointment.

Absolute morons.

The best thing they could do right now for the rightfully disgruntled shareholders is offer the opportunity to get together, be given the chance to ask questions, and ideally build some camaraderie.

This week’s presentation was supposed to offer a Q&A but they didn’t take any online questions!

WEAK cowards.

My guess is the rabbit will be selling 20% of the SPX stake, bringing total ownership to 50%, for an amount between $5 and $10 million. If I had to guess further, the PR won’t state the % decrease and you’ll have to wait for the subsequent Q report to show.

Doesn’t totally fix their money issues but at least buys them enough cash to towards the end of the year.

Side note…one thing I’ve never seen anyone mention about the SPX JV is that their facility is “temporary” and 5,000 square feet. That’s obviously not enough space for a full production line. If I was Sanan and really wanted to squeeze out POET, it would be easy to do when upgrading to permanent space. Someone should ask management about those plans and potential disruptions to manufacturing.

Please. Please shut the lights out on your way out! And watch out the door don’t slam you on your ass. POET is dead and if they sell a piece or all of their interest , the money will be used to pay their salaries and allow them to spread more BS to us shareholders. Please Please let me sell at $3 and move on. But now I’ll settle for a loss and leave at $2.

KCCO7913 KCCO7913 1 week ago
The presentation was fine. I never really expect much from presentations like these. Normally just tiny nuggets of info.

I thought SV’s comments were a bit odd about 1.6T since they didn’t even have a 1.6T module at OFC. Their 800G won’t start shipping until late 2025 (at the earliest I’d guess).

Money is still a major concern, but sounds like they’re going to get the bulk of their cash needs in the next few months from selling a piece of the SPX JV. They mentioned licensing but I’m not sure that would be a meaningful amount of money up front to relieve cash concerns and who would that be with anyway? Best case would be a North American foundry (unlikely IMO).

I thought it was funny they laid out revenue scenarios but then there was an “*” and it said these did not reflect managements estimates or projections. In any case with those figures, maybe $10-20 million in revenue in the next couple years. Meanwhile billions of dollars worth of 800G+ transceivers will be sold by the other players. Clearly the industry is able to ramp production without POET despite what others claim ‘over there’. POET’s value proposition at this point is making it cheaper and easier. Easier…I believe. Cheaper…I think other methods are going to hit the mark.

POET desperately needs non-China customers for 800G+. SPX gets all the revenue from 400G engine sales for China territories. 800G/1.6T is comprised of 400G engines.

Besides a quick comment about being designed into CAI, I was surprised they didn’t discuss the light source business. To me, I think that confirms the timeline delay from CAI pushing out volume shipments to 2027.

I do believe in the value of this technology, however the investment value is the problem I see here. And management decisions ruined that. I just can’t believe Suresh is OK keeping Mika around. Also whoever structured the SPX deal should never be allowed to negotiate another deal either.

A module maker is worth about 3x revenue per the recent Lumentum/Cloud Light deal. In a couple years it’s likely the fully diluted share count will be approaching 100 million shares I’d guess.

Could this still be a 10x in the next 5 years? Yes, if they can finally execute to the plan with no more delays, bad deals, or surprises. Unfortunately for most current shareholders a 10x from here is really only a 2-3x on their investment. When you factor in time, that’s a horrible investment.

Okay I came all the way over here. I would have loved to go to OFC this year and looked into it, but it did not line up with my work schedule

Why don't you give me some more details on the light source. Was it test equipment like a keysight Tunable Laser Source? Was it a small, compact DBF laser array? I need discernible details, otherwise I think you're just a liar.

1) unfortunately I cannot come forward on Agoracom because I’ve been banned there twice and I’ve run out of email addresses to use.

2) for the low low price of paying for tickets to attend these conferences, you can get access to these presentations, slide decks, and technical papers.

I don’t need to post my proof. I’m not lying. I did not read the Terms of Service for the tickets, so I’m not sure I’m able to post copies of what was presented. The presentation slide decks showed “confidential” on them. The paper associated with the OFC presentation should be available to purchase in about 2 months via the Optica website.

Mr. MuffinCarnival,

You said, “It will be Starlight chiplets and not just anyone's external light source as suggested by a detractor who is not accepting that POET is making superior optical engines, via the OI platform, for anyone and everyone.”

At OFC last week, Celestial AI’s demo of its Photonic Fabric did not use a POET light source. Why? My whole point is that posters like you have made people believe that POET is the end-all-be-all exclusive supplier to CAI. I’m NOT saying CAI is NOT using POET anymore.

At Optica PECC last October, CAI’s entire presentation revolved around the Photonic Fabric. That’s because that is the core of all their offerings, even Orion. Orion wasn’t even mentioned in this presentation, or the OFC presentation for that matter.

Here’s a quote from a February 2022 article – “Celestial AI is developing an accelerator chip called Orion that’s designed to speed up machine learning applications. What sets the chip apart from the numerous existing AI accelerator products on the market is a technology dubbed Photonic Fabric. The technology transports data among the Orion chip’s circuits in the form of light, rather than in the form of electricity as most processors do.”

Here's a quote from yesterday’s article – “Unsurprisingly, most of Celestial’s traction has been on chiplets. “What we’re not doing is trying to force our customers into adopting any one specific product implementation. The lowest risk, fastest, least complex way to provide an interface into the Photonic Fabric right now is through chiplets,”

Another quote from yesterday’s article – “The challenge Celestial faces is timing. Lazovsky tells us that he expects to begin sampling Photonic Fabric chiplets to customers sometime in the second half of 2025. He then expects it will be at least another year before we see products using the design hit the market, with volume ramping in 2027.”

Unless I see something different from CAI or POET, I think you are wrong and misleading investors. I do wonder if you delete your posting history because part of you acknowledges some of your comments have been misleading.

To me, sounds like CAI has faced some delays. No big deal, that happens all the time in this space. Surely being a POET investor you should be used to that, too.

Clear as mud apparently. Maybe not for you because you think so highly of yourself.

“However, I am much closer to being accurate than most.” A bit pompous lol…

Even after the CAI article was posted which said the following…

“Lazovsky tells us that he expects to begin sampling Photonic Fabric chiplets to customers sometime in the second half of 2025. He then expects it will be at least another year before we see products using the design hit the market, with volume ramping in 2027.”

…the circus is still trying to convince posters there that CAI will be shipping their Photonic Fabric to “everyone else starting in 2024 maybe 2025.”


What’s even weirder is two of the main hypsters over there have completely erased their post history.

It’s quite comical to see the posts on Agoracom lately.

I’d like to be wrong, but POET doesn’t have time to now start a series of news releases to get the share price up. They thought the news last week would. Management has done that time and time again thinking their news would create buying. An OFC recap video or PR sure as hell won’t do anything.

Who the F would buy this stock when there is 0% trust in management who has proven to have horrible judgement…and there’s just a few weeks left until insolvency. (No need to argue that point because it’s true. Is it 2 weeks or 7 weeks until working capital turns negative…?doesn’t matter).

They need the money NOW.

I don’t think people understand that it is possible for shareholders to get completely wiped out but the company and its technology continue on. That is exactly what happened to Rockley.

Prospectus Supplement- Dilution consequences
posted on Apr 03, 2024 12:47AM

It was my belief that the company was waiting for the Annual filing before issuing any material news.Now it is likely that there will be a full update re' OFC conference, with positive news .

The Prospectus states that they can sell up to US$ 24,123,758 worth of stock, which at latest close of US$1.30 is about 18,556,737 shares, which represents a dilution of about 39%, taking current declared outstanding shares at 47,660,352.

However if the market cap' of the company is below US$75MN then they can only sell 1/3rd of outstanding shares , about 15,886,784 shares, or appx 33% dilution, which at current close of US$1.30 would realize US$20.65 MN.

All the above assumes they sell the full amount of US$24.12 MN.

One now hopes and expects that Poet will start releasing a series of positive news releases (technical & commercial) to increase share value and minimize dilution.

Not sure if supplement to Prospectus has yet to be approved before it becomes effective.

Hopefully Poet, or the broker, has some heavy duty investors lined up to take this whole offering.

This is definitely not the non-dilutive financing that was promised but hopefully it is cost efficient, and gives the company some runway to get the rocket launched.

wow, any thoughts on this, seems like this would create a lot of selling pressure on an already depressed PPS

LWLG is similar to Poet in the way they use their lips to promote their company. Which one will be the one with the proven wanted product? IMO, neither. I’ll continue to trade my traders and try to decrease my core a wee bit. I’ll be buying more trader shares when we hit around fifty cents a share shortly. Till then Poet will try to pump this up to around $1.60 to be able to cash in on warants. Afterwards the next offering will be another disaster for us but will be able to pay the salaries of the Poet Bozos.

Hey FJ, if Lebby/LWLG believed in Poet's Optical Interposer they would have bought a 5% or 10% stake on the fire sale PP that just went down at about measly buck a share with a full warrant, then they would get a board seat and better direct the Operations and most certainly the finances!!

The Plasmonic 400Gbs per lane NRZ is likely 3-5 years out for volume production

The Polymer 200gb per lane PAM4 is commercial ready TODAY

The Polymer 400gb per lane PAM4 will be commercial by 2025/2026

Hey FJ…since I’m not allowed in your fiefdom I’ll add a comment here.

The 400G per lane plasmonic/organic modulator is years away from commercialization. Your comment is not wrong.

But also understand that LWLG has silicon organic modulators operating at 150Ghz bandwidth which can hit 400G PAM4. Still, a few years away until the market needs that in general. I’d guess 2026 at the earliest will have the first prototype modules with 400G per lane modulators.

At least right now it solidifies EO polymer as a contender in this space for future growth. That’s the point. I’m aware of foundries who are unwilling to even start working with TFLN because that technology has physical limitations (let alone the integration issues). Liobates OFC presentation also indicated they are not close to having a commercial product.

You said POET started working with EMLs as a proactive measure. My understanding it was reactive. Sure…it shows the flexibility of the platform. But so what, really, when all photonics foundries can pick and choose KGD/components.

To get to 3.2T pluggables, POET will have to go beyond InP EAMs. They won’t be competitive at 3.2T.

Instead of commenting on LWLG’s 400G per lane news last week…how about the more relevant 200G modulator news. Mass produced in a silicon foundry on 200mm wafers (which foundry?! I think SkyWater). Excellent reliability (6,000+ hours!) and currently building their statistical database for their yet-to-be disclosed partner(s). Shoot, I haven’t seen more than 2,000 hours of reliability for POETs interposer. I do wonder if some of POET’s delays relate to reliability. Hmm.

Google last week mentioned they’re looking at polymer modulators for their heterogenous integration efforts. Hmm.

Ps…pretty sure POET started working with DML when their SiPh modulator efforts failed with Silux. Silux and Source Photonics appear to be making it work.

It seems to me Lazovsky likes to keep his tactical advantage very private, hence when they look under the hood , no starlight to be seen, mostly keep the name POET out of their grasp. If Poet has a cost and scale advantage and you want to hit the market running, you might do the same.

The bottom line is , Poet has to prove out the cost and scale advantage, if they can do that, they will have a winner in this photonics chiplet market (Ayar labs CAI, Lightmatter etc)

You guys know my inherent skepticism, I think what is confirmed here, that wasn’t entirely understood elsewhere, is that the light source is an external component, not integrated within the fabric. I know that sounds obvious, but for some reason it was not universally accepted.

So it makes sense to demo with an established technology, the FAU, versus one that might not be fully tested to the standard they may require, also demonstrates the flexibility of supply for external power source. Starlight might be the best option, but it will always be just that, an option, as technology always advances, it will have to evolve to remain relevant in an always competitive technology ecosystem. And CAI’s demo was for their Photonic Fabric, not POET’s Starlight.

POET hasn’t shown anything this past week that addresses the financial elephant sitting on their chest, That is all that matters for now.

I see chatter about this where I’m not allowed…lol

Yes CAI’s demo last week used a light source that wasn’t POETs.

It was a 24 channel FAU. In their presentation they had a zoomed in picture of it and it wasn’t StarLight.

Not horribly bad news, but it answers my previous question that CAI must have multiple sources of ELS.

Some people seemed to be under the assumption that CAI was exclusively using POET.

from what I have heard, the Celestial AI white paper at OFC does not indicate any Poet involvement in the light source

I wonder what imformation they are telling the people that provide them with supplies and the people who they will be selling products to?

considering how horribly dilutive Poet has been in its PP's, it may be better for them to just sell the company to a larger player with loads of Cash, unfortunately, negotiating from a weak financial position would likely result in offers in the 200M to 300M range which would only be like $4 to$6 per share, not very good for those long-term shareholders here, but perhaps reason to become a new shareholder today
