    Right of First Offer:

    I believe this means that if ASTX decides to partner this drug, that they have to first offer it to Eisai. Eisai would have 3-6 months to decide an a deal or pass on it.

    It would be nice to see astx actually get a drug under their full control. This is maybe why they hint about the credit line they have? What would a deal look like today on this compound? They could asked for more upfront and take less on the royalities. Something like $500M (just a number) with milestones and a 15%+ royality?

    Could they get this drug approved on their own? This would be the best case for investors. If sgi-110 is the real deal and gained a good chunk of the market, $500M in sales, this would maybe have a solid $1.50 EPS, at a PE of 15(conservative), we're looking at $20+ a share. We can dream.

    As long as SGI-110 performs, Dr. M is in the driver seat. The thing he does real well, is these kind of deals. Look at Nipent. With Dacogen they were cash poor, they got a softer deal, than what could be expected today.
