    Could there be some credibiltiy to Roche partnership negotiations?

    Doing a little high level research on this subject:

    - Roche does have a diabetic group
    - As of Dec 5, 2013 Roche is ranked second among the big pharmas for number of partnership deals completed year to date
    - Roche announced over 375 partnering / licensing deals since 2005, with over 24 deals in 2012 alone
    - Roche was ranked 8th in revenue in 2012 among big pharma with $38.53 billion USD in sales
    - Roche is a Swiss based company and would provide MNKD with strong link to EU market and definitely assist in filing for EU approval
    - Roche has no products that would compete with Afrezza
    - English is a commonly spoken language in Switzerland, and therefore communications would be simplified
    - Roche is recognized as an attractive company to partner with
    - A survey measuring the partnering functions of the major pharmaceutical companies identified Roche as having particular strengths in deal structure flexibility, executive leadership, alliance management and manufacturing expertise
    - Roche looks for first-in-class or best-in-class opportunities that address diseases of unmet medical need and have the potential to revolutionize the standard of care (DOESN'T THAT SOUND LIKE AFREZZA?)
