    the deal

    VPHM raised money almost two years. Most people on this board have been bitching and complaining that the company needed a new value driver to add to their own product line. This seems like a pretty intelligent deal. We get all the benefits on the upside and, it sounded to me, that we can walk away from the deal if the FDA does something unexpected. The only money that has changed hands so far is $20 million. The $1.50-$2.00 haircut today bites the big one but I like the way management has structured this deal. We would be in LEV's position selling to a stronger company if management hadn't been prudent 2 years ago by raising money. Brilliant capital raise and great patients looking and waiting for the right deal.

    • I agree with you rdiggerg. Having watched for almost a year now as everyone has begged for the management to do something. Now that they add a potentially large revenue stream everyone is freaking out because the target doesn't yet have a drug on market. If they did VPHM would not likely have enough cash to buy it.

      I also like the way they structured the deal. They will pay more when there is approval and more again only after 600M in sales. Which pays for the whole deal anyway.
