Jason, I believe the company is proceeding with "A" (and it should) because it gives a critical cornerstone for defending any one of its patents. This is just as important as all the tradeshows, marketing, third party testing, and University trials, IMHO. By NNLX having their own production facilities they pass the “machine or transformation” test without a doubt. Although the below referenced case was somewhat unrelated I have confidence that the "machine or transformation" test still holds a lot of water for a company like NNLX.
Sawjawfamily might have a few words about this, and you all know why ;-)
The other reason proceeding with "A" makes sense is beacuse it is the quickest way to get the product to market as demand picks up and build market share immediately. Running at full tilt I think that clean room can produce something crazy like 50,000 petris a day? (Correct me if I'm wrong). So NNLX already has the capacity to create supply. Why not exploit it ASAP?
Thanks for the responses. It is an interesting topic to see what others are thinking. I figure that if you are investor hoping for a buyout you might be hoping for a big return in the short run where one day the share price jumps if a buyout is announced. But, if you are thinking the compnay to produce and distribute themselves it might be a slow and steady increase over severeal years.
