Operator- And our next question comes from the line of Anthony [Petrone] [ph].
Unidentified Participant- Hello, Mr. Rabin.
Gary Rabin - Chairman and CEO- Hi. How are you?
Unidentified Participant- I’m doing good. Hey, once again, thank you. When we’re talking like this, does that guy who mentioned my name, does he – does my name get out over everybody that’s listening on this?
Gary Rabin - Chairman and CEO- Yes.
Unidentified Participant- So the public would know my name, correct. So I shouldn’t use my id name on a computer, correct?
Gary Rabin - Chairman and CEO- I’m not going to advise you to what to do.
And THAT boys and girls is pernas 5 minutes of fame! : )
Amazing that they would take a call from the biggest idjiot out of 45,000 small fry stockholders. And did he call ACTC an outfit...LOL! My son is in Italy right now and I had to warn him that there are still Neanderthals living in the boot. Some way even live in swamp boats like this pitiful clown. He did find his 5 minutes of fame though.
Did you call-he didn't take your place. Your son is in Italy and you're worried about what prosciutto and pizza OD LOLX10. Mine is in Cambodia today back in Thailand tomorrow with a backpack-I wish he was in Italy-we have relatives there. Yours will come back wanting to be Italian. Mine will come back wanting Italian food!

Anthony Petrone: Hello Mr. Rabin. Thank you. When we're talking like this, does that guy who mentioned my name, does my name get out over everybody that's listening in on this?
Anthony Petrone: So the public would know my name, so I shouldn't use my ID name on the computer, correct.
Gary: I'm not going to advise you what to do. When you say your name it is public.
Anthony Petrone: I have been with this outfit, I don't know, when they were down in the pinks, a long, long time ago before you came on, and everything you say, and everything that I've been hearing, is all promising. It's like all giggity, giggity…. I mean it's got people just…. But I've got to ask you sir, and I'm not just a nickle-dime stock holder, let me say this. A couple of million I'm proud to say, and maybe that's not a lot of money, that's not a lot to some people, but I don't know, to me that's a lot. I firmly believe in what you're doing here, what's going on, but can I ask you something, and I hope not to be redundant. Where's the money at in this? I mean you would think, where are the big dogs at, Pfizer, Merck. I mean, has anybody from ACTC kind of like had lunch with one of these guys? You know what I mean sir? Any big dogs lookin, I mean any prospects, that's what I wanted to ask you, because this all sounds exciting, all great, but where's the money.
Gary: I appreciate the fact that you have been a long-time holder in the company and we feel very optimistic about this. One thing that's important for you to understand is, and I said in my opening remarks, and I've said it at every conference that I attend, there is no big pharma or biotech company that has an ophthalmology division that doesn't know everything about these trials. This company is in Phase I. We're a Phase I biotech company. At the inflection point of value creation from the transition from Phase I to Phase II, and then from Phase II to Phase III, and then from Phase III to commercialization are ENORMOUS INFLECTIONS one can value, logarithmic jumps, and I have made it clear on every conference call, that we are not going to enter into a joint venture with what looks like the golden goose just to get 10 million dollars in the door. This is a potential multi-billion dollar therapy. And obviously we've got a long way to go from here to commercialization, but you are incorrect if you think I'm going to rush out and do a deal with one of these guys that you mention just to get a deal done. You'd be foolhardy. We've seen too much promise in this therapy to just partner it out for a small upfront payment. It would be crazy. So, I recognize what that means for shareholders is that you could be holding the stock for a while before we announce a partnership agreement, BUT THERE ARE PLENTY OF VALUE-CREATING INFLECTION POINTS BETWEEN NOW AND THEN, so that's what we're focused on.
What is wrong with me?
I thought message boards were for sharing information. Todays burning question was "Who is Perna?" And I happened to know the answer. No insult intended I have nothing but respect for Tony's brilliant contibutions to this board. What is wrong with you deme, monthly cycle or menopausal? : )
