Amarin Quiet Period--Not due to NCE,but due to Partnership talks.
NCE is not a great reason for announcing Quiet Period-- .
Partnership talks is definitely a valid reason.
I believe that Partnership talks are going on with Pfizer and Merck.
It is possible that GSK,Sanofi and others may start bidding-knowing that Partnerships lead to eventual marriage(Lipitor marketing in 1996-98 with Pfizer by Warner Lambert ).
American Home Products(Wyeth) tried to buy Warner Lambert--but PFIZER outbid and paid 90 bil.$.
