    That and giving themselves raises and bonuses. They never miss those!

    Yeah, I'm back to not holding my breath then. I can't remember the last time anything they said materialized as expected.

    That would be the right thing to do - especially if you were looking for a potential bidding war for the assets but I will believe it when I see it. Hope your source has some credibility. Management sure doesn't

    My guess is based on history these guys will hold out as long as they can to release info. They are not under any obligation (other than possibly morally) to release that info to us so I wouldn't expect anything from them until they absolutely have to give it to us. May would be nice but if I were a betting man, I wouldn't be on it.

    Insider buying or options?

    Options have nothing to do with open market transactions. They are an "option" to buy the stock which means no stock is actually trading hands. Besides that, the company issues new shares if the options are exercised so if anything it would be selling in the market not buying in a cashless transaction which is what you would most likely see here if they were exercised anyway. The reality is, no one is going to do anything with those options until they are close to expiration or we get bought out anyway. So while it is my opinion they should be counted as dilutive regardless, the fact is there is no immediate impact to the stock because of their issuance. They are just sitting there waiting to take value away from us in the event of something positive here.

    Got to hand it to OHRP

    The thing I don't get is supposedly these guys are reasonably intelligent/seasoned "investors" and know how the process is supposed to work. It's like they are purposely holding this back. Really reminds me of Prolor Bird. I still can't believe Frost was able to get away with what he did there. I sincerely hope we are not seeing that here again.

    Charles, stop with the conspiracy already. It's bonus time. They did the same thing at the same time last year. Let it go.

    If we are in line for a buyout from Pfizer (or anyone else for that matter) it simply isn't relevant. It's a matter of an offer, an agreement on terms, a vote and an exit. CEO adds no value to the process. Like I said, just another face looking for free shares at our expense..

    Or if there is a buyout, it is just one more mouth to feed. Honestly I prefer Lack in there for status quo until results.

    Same as last year. Nothing is up. Not clear why Gary is included though. His bonus should be based on stock performance which means he should be giving shares back.

    Amazing how much damage these guys have done to their shareholder base. Going to take some time to build any sort of credibility. These guys have bent us over the proverbial barrel too many time the past few years. I am sure a lot of people like Freddy are sitting back and watching for roadkill.

    But you guys didn't get the deal of the century with Prolor (not to be confused with Prolar) did you Burnaka? What was I talking about? All of the run up in OPK is from Prolor. You're welcome.

    And an analyst with a PHD in Microbiology:

    "In addition, inking a deal on OXY-RPEG was always likely to take some time for PROLOR. My experience tells me that it typically takes 6 – 12 months to ink a partnering deal from the time that parties begin discussing to the time the ink dries on the agreement. I believe that PROLOR management only really began talking to partners early in the summer of this year about licensing out this program. Believe me, I have stated repeatedly to Shai and Avri that they should not be greedy here and that they should focus on demonstrating to investors that they are not simply likely to take the easy way out by resorting to some highly punitive and dilutive financing at a highly inopportune time in the market. If they need to do a deal that is heavily back end-loaded and doesn’t give them as significant an upfront payment as Zealand got, so be it.

    I definitely feel that this management team can and will get a deal done on OXY-RPEG. I was talking to them for over two years before initiating coverage and I visited them several times in Israel. I have experienced the so-called “Israeli discount” before, when I was covering XXXXXXX, but I believe that PROLOR management is very serious about overcoming that and convincing investors that this company is the real deal. If I didn’t believe in this firm and hadn’t been in meetings that they have had with institutional clients to see how they perform, and if I hadn’t taken many months to do my due diligence on their core technology platforms, I would not have initiated coverage on this company." Ha!

    My favorite quote by Shai (From October 2011): "You know the story well, the near term milestones (initiation of Phase II in children and Phase III in adults). Our growth hormone product, in our estimates, would be the first to the market of once-a-week treatment, and has shown excellent results in the recently completed Phase II. The story essentials have not changed , unrelated to the volatility in the stock price, especially in this type of market when investors are getting margin calls and liquidating positions. The company today is in possession of highly valuable therapeutic drug assets as well as an infrastructure for the development of additional pipeline product – each for a multi-billion dollar market, and the recent drop in the stock price makes the company a very attractive investment relative to comparable companies with leading drug entering into a Phase III for a $3 billion market."

    BTW, I held Prolor for years (bought most when it was $0.25) and watched it all play out up to this sham buyout. They did everything they could to keep the company out of the light.

    Shai (CEO) was Frost's lacky. He didn't scratch without Frost's permission. So no. What happened is he did nothing and the price tanked from the $7s to the $3s and Frost bought it for next to nothing.

    I don't know who this poster is but this was my post copied verbatim.

    The $3.50 run up is on 400MM shares. Had this taken place in Prolor it would have been almost 6x that on the lower share base. Yeah, still bitter and rightfully so..
