HI Park--- utupua4 has it outlined. The CTO is good thru most of 2017 BUT that does not imply that they need it that long....sure the hell hope not.
Hi Judy---I made it one more Thanksgiving and for that, I am giving thanks.
Best 2U Judy....I think we will have a very rewarding Christmas.
A controlled launch is a smart, prudent way of entering the market with a new product.
In this case I think both MNKD and SNY wanted validation of:
(1) Ability to supply to demand....they had only one line initially.
(2) Confirm acceptance
(3) Get insurance on board
(4) Confirm efficacy one more time
(5) Slow and easy to confirm there are no "hidden" issues
(6) Message RX renewal as yard stick of acceptance
(7) Gain input from targeted endos and doctors
(8) Gather info from Clamp studies
(9) Gain access to improved labeling
Once these components are data validated a full launch would follow----which was supposed to have commenced during this Qtr.
MNKD stated they were in a "black out or quiet period" which indicates to me serious planning and negotiations are active and will be revealed soon.
If MNKD attempted to instill shareholder confidence and break their silence they would open the door to probing that would create huge problems ...however the silence has instilled lack of confidence and the consequential pps.
UNLESS Kevin, under all this self induced "apparent" mess there is a solid structure/plan that has been playing out and is about to be revealed. This is my belief and I sure the hell hope I'm right. If this "mess" splashes into 2016 my faith will be dashed.
OK you arrogant nat, what's your take?
That's exactly the way it works Kevin.
The "Old Guard" remains long enough to assist in the transition, allowing, in this case SNY, to obtain a good read on the day to day operations.
Sure as sheet Al Mann is not involved in this SOP.
Better have that prostate checked again.
Alfred Mann is considering Alfred Neumann because they are closely related with the name alphabet or is it Alphabet doing the CEO consideration?
is like watching this stock each day.
The vultures stay munching on the rabbit because there is no work or effort involved but sooner or later the free meal will be over.
You are down to the last morsels vultures and soon you will be the rabbit on the side of the road.
Well Kevin we see the MNKD world thru the same glasses which means we have either excellent business interpretation skills or we both are wearing wrong prescription glasses.
I'm anxiously awaiting the halt in trading for the announcement that will set me free.
