    • they did a bad job of representing VaPHoooM!... Biotech market multiple for ones with a single product is around 8-15X revenue... the ones that deals with rarer diseases get richer multiple... we are bought around that regular multiple... just revenue... no premium given to the pipeline and the fact that VaPHoooM! has more than one product...
      I think they were heavy on the short side... they must also deliver shares for the call options that VaPHoooM! purchased from them...
      the lawyers should check on all these... how GS was not the right representative on the deal... they've got too much conflict of interest... The BOD got hoodwinked... imo!
      aloha, K
