Early demand will not prove to be much. There is no point to publicity anymore unless there is money attached to any press release. I agree with ftd about the need to do this for manufacturing purposes but anyone who has talked to the company recently about new money apart from the massive dilution going on now has my ear. I encourage anyone else to do as I have done and let management know that dilution remains a huge concern. I am tolerant of a slower pace, setbacks, outright mistakes but at some point the math of share issuance trumps the desire to "go it alone". Don't know if we've crossed the line yet but what do others say?
I am not too optimistic on the early demand. However, the significant cash just raised might have been required to kick off manufacturing runs. After all, that was one of JJ's stated purposes for the addl shares authorization.
