Fail. Company executives would not manipulate the market to boost revenue from the sale of more stock, unless they have no fear of handcuffs which I doubt. Nor would an outside party bid up the price of the stock only to see it plummet when the new shares hit the market.
I'm own AVII but your explanation of why company officials or market manipulators wouldn't screw with the stock is laughable. There are thousands of examples available of just such shenanigans--although I don't think AVII is one of them.

Plus, they've just stated the the cashflow from the government contracts ramped up faster than expected.
Secondly a good partnership would provide far more money than they could ever raise in a secondary. Look at the deal NBIX got - share price now triple what it was, and the market CAP is still less than the value of the two contracts it secured.
Finally, I think if they were going to do a secondary, they'd have done it at the end of Boyle's watch.
