    webcast by new CEO Thursday after market close

    I have a feeling that Turpin wants him to explain why there needs to be a dilution.....

    • First, I will say I am glad they are doing the call. In the past, AEZS mailed out proxy votes, then dropped news the day of the meeting... meaning you either didn't vote or made an uninformed vote. At least with this webcast, investors can have more information before voting (assuming we all don't want to fly to the company annual meeting).
      Dilution is definitely a possibility. They have maybe 11 months worth of cash counting the recent sale. They will either need to dilute, partner, or sell an asset in the next few months. I would hope they give Dodd at least a couple of months to work out a better deal than prior management was able to get.
      It will be interesting to see what he says about 130. I want him to give a time, and then meet that deadline. I don't care if he tells me 8 weeks instead of 6, if I can actually trust what he is saying. I had no faith in any of Engel's comments, and that trend needs to be reversed.
      I would love to see 130 sold for upfront cash, with milestone payments on NDA approval (and either retain rights for cachexia, or have huge milestone payments for that if it works out). They either need to do that or partner 108 very soon... otherwise investors will be diluted away (or find a huge investor willing to invest 30+m at above market prices... I could live with dilution if that kind of confidence was displayed along with it...)

    • I have a hunch it will be something good. No more of Engel's "Someday the market will come to recognize the value of our pipeline" B-S while they continue to dilute and miss time estimates. The recent PR's on 108 and Cetrotide seem to indicate that someone at Aeterna has finally figured out you can't keep diluting shares when your share price is near and all time low and you are still not attracting buyers. I think someone who is out a lot more money that we are pulled the plug on the German doctor to replace him with someone who will start taking investors seriously.

    • Turpin said earlier that the company has enough cash into next year. Dilution is not the point of this webcast. Dodd wants to people to know him. This is cool since he's trying to rebuild the relationship with the investment community. I'll know pretty quickly if this guy can turn it around.

    • Does that mean that the NDA dor 130 is delayed once more?The timing of the webcast is odd,,,,IMO
