German retail investors repose confidence in Dyesol equity

One of Dyesol's many assets - in addition to its strong IP portfolio, highly qualified staff, multinational partners, and game-changing technology - has always been its loyal base of private/retail shareholders who believe in what Dyesol is doing and understand the huge impact success will have on the planet.  
 
Recent share registry analysis has again confirmed this: 51% of shareholders are Australian private/retail investors and 39% are German private/retail investors.  These figures are both up considerably from last year where they were at approximately 30% each. 
 
Additionally, the number of Dyesol shareholders has grown from approximately 4,800 to almost 5,300.  What this means for Dyesol is that more and more individuals are hearing about its technical progress, reading its news, learning about the opportunity with Dyesol, and making individual choices to invest and be a part of future successes.  
 
When Dyesol grows the shareholder base and increase liquidity, it provides strong support to share price gains which have recently occurred as the market repeatedly rerates Dyesol stock with each of the recent Solid State DSC technical breakthrough announcements.
 
The unusually high number of German shareholders is also of particular interest and value and is a positive validation of its investor outreach strategy and initiatives - now more than 80 million Dyesol shares are held by private German investors.
 
These figures are telling because by no means are stocks the Germans' main investment vehicle.  According to the German newspaper "Die Zeit," about 10 million Germans currently posses stocks (direct or via funds), but each is only invested with a small proportion of their total assets.  Of the 4.9 trillion Euros controlled by private German households, only a little more than 600 billion Euros are invested in shares (including investment funds).  
 
The German's favourite instrument for wealth preservation and growth remains the traditional savings account, despite historically low interest rates.  Most are not, or only marginally involved in productive assets. This conservative, and respectably, defensive handling of their assets is likely a result of - in contrast to some other countries - Germany's compulsory retirement insurance.
 
With that background, the German support of Dyesol is something that really shines. It is also reflected in the high liquidity of the shares on the German stock exchange.  On average over a 30 day period (leading up to 11 September 2013), more trade took place in Germany than on the ASX.  
 
Especially now that the German solar industry has been hit so hard, the confidence shown by German private investors in an Australian solar company is really valuable and unique.  Dyesol is pleased that the German private investor community has shown such steadfast and growing confidence in Dyesol.
