Pfizer to buy ZLCS. I think NOT! Why would Pfizer cannibalize current pain meds business?
They are broke and if they have good news they will have to sell because they have no money to conduct phase 3 trials. This notion is totally wrong. Countless times in the biotech world we see companies being offered pennies on the dollar or ridiculous partnership agreements. Small companies have wised up to the bulling that has gone on in the past. ZLCS can do many stock dilutions to finance operation. Seeking Alpha tries to paint a picture that they are desperate and beyond hope even if they have good news!
If I were ZLCS I would file a shelf now for future stock dilution to keep options open. IF could news I would expect a dilution almost immediately after the news of phase 2 trials. A dilution buys them time to seek the right deal for a partnership or buyout!
