    it doesn't matter dad, if 7353 comes through...

    yep, that's in the company charter, which we don't have access to...this SEC S-8 doc was created to protect the options that are to be issued...normally they didn't have to write in these situations in the past, because it didn't apply. it seems pretty clear to me that they need to now...

    BTW-5mil = peanuts...

    nope, won't happen. once it becomes obvious that BB are going to try, the PPS will surge. right now i'm trying to read and understand what's in this thing, whereas, therefor, as such, etc. etc...

    here's the statement that superseded the original-

    "Any statement contained in a document incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference herein shall be deemed to be modified or superseded for the purposes of this Registration Statement to the extent that a statement contained herein or in any other subsequently filed document that also is or is deemed to be incorporated by reference herein modifies or replaces such statement. Any statement so modified or superseded shall not be deemed, except as so modified or superseded, to constitute a part of this Registration Statement."

    now there plenty of ways to STOP an acquisition, but this doc doesn't state it...for example, if someone starts accumulating a lot of shares, they (BCRX) could just issue more shares. this doc limits the shares. then there's the "golden parachute" ...none here. then there's the revolving board members, none here...i'm not a regulatory expert, but i'd swear this was purposely written for the BB's to protect them from facing any hurdles...i've got lot's of more reading to do, but life calls...

    "BCRX had a poison pill that was initiated at hostile TO of less than $25."

    with all due respect, i'd like to see that doc, and even if you find it, the newly released doc spells it out quite clearly...50% does it, at whatever price it closes.

    the door is open to the baker bros., now the question is, will they walk through it?

    being the youngest, i learned at a very early age that if you have something everyone wants, you better make the best deal for it now, or they're just going to beat the #$%$ out of you... or, they'll just steal it...

    now's the time stoney, 4430, HAE...take the best deal stoney, because after all, you work for the shareholders...

    so, if you think, well don't all these registration statements have that wording? the answer is "no".

    may i direct your attention to the S-8 filed on may, 12, 2014.

    none of that verbiage is there...

    yep, something is going on.

    the options that the big boys get are priced at 3.06. once that's distributed, then the news comes, probably a few weeks later, IMO.

    Baker Bros. own 17% of the company. that's on file. how much they bought in the last 3-4 months is unknown. they'd need about 23,000,000 shares now to take the company over. don't hold me to that number. if it's right, the bakers can buy us for roughly 100,000,000.

    or in layaways language, peanuts...

    back to the calculator...

    frankie- i don't know yet...still reading...

    For purposes of Article Four, the following definitions shall be in effect:

    (i) A Hostile Take-Over shall be deemed to occur in the event any person or related group of persons (other than the Company or a person that directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with, the Company) directly or indirectly acquires beneficial ownership (within the meaning of Rule 13d-3 of the 1934 Act, as amended) of securities possessing more than fifty percent (50%) of the total combined voting power of the Company’s outstanding securities pursuant to a tender or exchange offer made directly to the Company’s stockholders which the Board does not recommend such stockholders to accept.

    20

    (ii) The Take-Over Price per share shall be deemed to be equal to the fair market value per share on the option surrender date.

    B. With respect to each option granted under the Automatic Option Grant Program on and after March 7, 2006, each optionee shall have the right to surrender all or part of the option (to the extent not then exercised) in exchange for a distribution from the Company in an amount equal to the excess of (i) the fair market value (on the option surrender date) of the number of shares in which the optionee is at the time vested under the surrendered option (or surrendered portion thereof) over (ii) the aggregate option price payable for such vested shares. The distribution shall be made in shares of Common Stock valued at fair market value on the option surrender date.

    C. The shares of Common Stock subject to any option surrendered for an appreciation distribution pursuant to this Section IV shall not be available for subsequent option grant under the Plan.

    great...

    here's the good part-For purposes of the Plan, the following provisions shall be applicable in determining the parent and subsidiary corporations of the Company:

    (i) Any corporation (other than the Company) in an unbroken chain of corporations ending with the Company shall be considered to be a parent corporation of the Company, provided each such corporation in the unbroken chain (other than the Company) owns, at the time of the determination, stock possessing fifty percent (50%) or more of the total combined voting power of all classes of stock in one of the other corporations in such chain.

    (ii) Each corporation (other than the Company) in an unbroken chain of corporations beginning with the Company shall be considered to be a subsidiary of the Company, provided each such corporation (other than the last corporation) in the unbroken chain owns, at the time of the determination, stock possessing fifty percent (50%) or more of the total combined voting power of all classes of stock in one of the other corporations in such chain.

    like stoney said "stuff happens"...

    i feel bad for the people who went, they're likely to hear the same BS they hear every CC...all the phrases..."we got 2 shots on goal"..."some really interesting compounds"...blah, blah, blah...

    the reality is, they screwed up 4430 (stopped and started), 7353 (likely stopped and started), and 4161...and they're never going to admit it...(well they admitted to 4161) but hey, they really "knocked it out of the park" on PK/PD...
