    Zero debt, Millions in bank, Nearly 700 patents and still going

    Pelo, your daily cries that Metabolix is falling flat look a bit desperate. I hope that you didn't short too much when the price dropped below $1.30 last year; it appears as if you are now desperately trying to break even. Metabolix is a company that already fell and is trying to get backup. While you’re spending every day here trying to talk investors into running; employees at Metabolix trying to generate value for shareholders. The reason investors aren't fleeing like you is because they see potential, potential in the products, the patents, the licenses and the technology.

    An investment right now in Metabolix is very similar to a venture capitalist's investment in any start-up. There is plenty of potential indicating the possibility of a 10x to 30x return but there is also the risk that the company won’t succeed. The shareholders who are sticking around are here because they know the story well and they believe that Metabolix will succeed. They may be right!

    Regarding “the story”… You like to make out that the whole ADM relationship was a complete flop and ADM gave the finger to Metabolix. Actually the split was a very friendly split. ADM received full ownership of the $400Mil factory that ADM built then they quickly turned it around and started leasing it. Metabolix received a bundle of cash from ADM; which they are using to start anew. It’s not as ugly as you make it out to be. The big ugly there was that ADM built a much bigger factory than they needed for Mirel and couldn't fully utilize it without finding a different product.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
