    We are expecting the quarterly report at the end of July and I thought it worthwhile to devote this page to it.

    I start with a post, dated June 20. This was written on the Ozestock ASC site and attempts to reconcile suggested numbers:

    " Projections:----

    Simon, following on from post 699, ASC predicted NPAT of $23.2 mill. in the year to June 2003 (P/E of 5.3 based on a share price of 40 cents).

    If there were *no* growth during that year, then we need $5.8 mill per quarter, all cash.

    That would mesh in nicely with cash increasing to 5.8 mill. in the June quarter of 2002. That would be 11.5% growth on the previous quarter of 5.2 mill.: see post 699. That in turn was a 25% growth on the 4.2 mill earned before.

    Summary, Cash growth :
    2002, quarter:
    1: Negative.
    2: 4.2 m.
    3: 5.2 m. (+25%,actual).
    4: 5.8 m. (+11.5%,suggested, but could be low).

    2003, nil growth, $5.8 m./quarter.(Highly unlikely as budgeting for growth is proceeding).

    However, I believe that the 11.5% growth in q.4, 2002, is too low as ASC is only now taking off.
    Simon, you were budgeting for higher results and true, ASC is budgeting for strong growth. I believe we can accomodate the $A effect in these data.

    Earning $5.8-6.5 mill in the current June quarter, could result in a handsome return in 2003 and set the stage for 2004 and 2005.

    Based on these data, I believe that ASC's projected result of $23.2 mill. in the year to June 30, 2003, could be met.

    We need the June quarterly report for confirmation. This is to appear at the end of July.

    Those are my opinions.
