They aquired 2 bio tech companys today,you know they are talking to Gern,since they are allready in bed with them,i dont think gern would even start to listen,unless the starting price was in the 60 dollar range.
Don't you think that a more realistic buyout by Merck would be their telomerase IP or a part of it? However, Dr. O. stated long ago that he was interested in partnerships for Geron. Frankly, I think he is getting into a position to get pretty much the type deal he wants. A total sellout is not in the cards, IMO.
