    We talk about the FDA so often, remember Dr. Lerner and three other FDA folks were at the ADCOM meeting and were tasked with several questions. I feel since the greatest complaint came from the shortness of the trial that every month the FDA has been receiving updated information on the existing patients and may help the overall approval process.

    They are doing nothing because all potential partners want the FDA approval.

    Upon approval I would proxy fight not to have this company sold. They have no obligation to Medtronics and I will not let them steal the company. Since so many management options are highly priced I am sure they do not want this sold. They hire an operations guys and they have the manufacture
    ready seamlessly in place. Pharma you have no idea how valuable their science and patents are now or are going to be. The patent applications are also huge. Why do you want to give this thing away before they get traction? Does not sound like you.

    Conference Call

    I have listened to Rigdon for three years and they have just got to get a deal signed. He needs to have a partner inject capital into the company to get investors interested. This company has to validate its technology away from China. I know the oil price drop is having an bigger effect than he says as the price fall in oil is killing Russia and Iran, two Saudi enemies. It is also going to wreck havoc on U.S. production is oil goes any lower which I think it will. The biggest owners of oil in here are the hedge funds and they cannot get out. They have leased every tanker and have oil sitting off shore. Take a boat ride up to Philly from Norfolk.You can walk across the bay on the backs of tankers.

    Simple. They need a deal within six months. The market is tired of the promises.

    I came away from the CC with one theme. They are talking to a lot of potential partners. One which could be a major player for ETRM in Europe, Asia and Australia is the company Medtronics is buying, Covidien. They are a perfect company to partner with and they have enormous reach. The have huge manufacturing capability.

    Crooks no. Talented no. They stretch the truth and want us to think they are our pals. Nothing will get done in November and December, It never does. The 398 screw up is inexcusable, They had Phase III data in May.
    I still think they finance in Q1.

    Exactly. There was not vote to approval anything. If you read the transcript you would come away feeling very good about approval. There were 287 pages of a lot of information and anyone with a half a brain reading it would never short this stock.

    It is not a lame reply pal. And I know what Pharma said It did NOT receive
    FAVORABLE APPROVAL. They got two positive votes and one negative. None
    of these ever recommended approval. They received positive votes in the areas that count the most but the FDA does not have to use them in their decision. The panel for all devices is just there to evaluate and comment.

    They have so much to offer yet the world does not care with crashing oil prices. All they have to do is get one GE done and all sins are forgiven but that seems like a tough task where they are trying to sell it.

    Be careful They got a benefit/risk vote of 6-2-1. Safety was 8-1. Efficacy was 4-5. They voted on 3 questions and there was no overall vote.

    This is November. Nothing gets done until next year. I think going into the first quarter we will need to finance and if we get no traction on 121 in Q1 this will not be good. Do you believe some idiot paid $9.05 in the pre-market.

    The largest pension and health system in the country, California Public Employees Retirement System increased their position in the stock by 110,000 shares in the Third Quarter. While it is an investment, could you imagine them getting on board the reimbursement train for their employees. If anyone knows the costs of obesity it is fund like theirs.

    Knudson was stammering and stuttering as he is not a good speaker, but he probably had a bevy of lawyers in the office telling him what to say. Greg Lea was good too and seems very able. The first thing that hit me was the mention of the Lerner letter. Have you folks read it? It basically says safety first for devices and we have to structure trials based on that and not a huge efficacy beat over a placebo. Lerner is going to vote on VBLOC.
    Next they are setting up a major deal overseas. You have to be deaf not to hear that. Upon approval that will be done and we will get a huge upfront. FYI. The biggest #$%$ off shore are in Japan and China and we have not even sent them a postcard. It is a simple process to open and get a new site running. One day maybe two to get the surgeons up to speed. They can do 10 surgeries a day versus how many bariatrics??

    The FDA was on the call as they always are when they are in process but ETRM also has SEC folks to keep happy also. Knudson hit all the right buttons and explained this company and its goals succinctly. I am sorry no one asked about the technology or other targets the company is investigating. Upon approval we will learn of a new smaller more efficient device with longer battery life. And last you heard him say they will start the pricing at reasonable levels and will also apply to the FDA for the diabetes addition.

    This party is just starting and the folks who sold me stock today all I can say is thanks.

    PRICE VALUATION OF ETRM

    As per usual you are missing the big picture. Bariatric is NOT the target. Our target in the 30-35BMI person who won't diet, won't exercise because of a job, and realized pills do not work. Initially we will get the folks who are afraid of bariatric surgery but in the end we are going for the 25-50 pound overweight person who is headed for 40-45 BMI. We will be a " Face lift For The Body."

    Pharma..they have about 1 million of inventory which is most likely the device. The real aspect I liked was the time for retraining and the time to get new surgeons on board. That is quite remarkable.
