Well . . . since last quarter VVUS produced $2 million in revenue with $53M in expenses. If I multiple that by 4 quarters it would equal $8M revenue for the year. That means Eisai's $65M milestone payment would be worth 8 years of VVUS revenues at the current rate. However, now they have cut their price in half, so they have to double sales to equal their last quarter. Wonder how that is working for them? Ouch!
Well . . . lets not forget that our South Korean partner's payment was $5M. Now lets speculate about the ROW partner and what their milestone payment might be - guessing larger than Eisai's. So I don't think we are talking about a one time event. Sorry, it's probably the word 'partner' that is so confusing and foreign to a VVUS groupie.
