It's not exactly an acquisition of shares.Mela has granted 90,0000 options to it's VP of R & D, of which 60,000 vest immediately and 30,000 vest upon PMA approval by FDA.Note that thus transaction happened on May 23, 2011 and the option price was $3.05 .So apparently he was just given the shares as opposed to him just buying shares outright.
I believe this is the person who developed the algorithms, in which case, he deserves them.
A question we should consider is how many more shares vest upon approval by the FDA?Hundreds of thousands?/ Millions??
