    Who are the U.S. companies making heart/lung machines used in bypass? I know about Terumo from Japan.

    Regarding a buyout--

    That's not entirely true, a company has to also get CTSOs approval, or face the terms of a poison pill on a hostile takeover. If they want to face that then they could still proceed.

    Also, we can't entirely rule out Cytosorbents keeping control over both revenue streams, and letting this company develop its full potential on its own through multiple robust partnership deals.

    It seems the two current streams of revenue might be described as critical care (Fresenius interest), and cardiac (Terumo? interest). A buyout by either one doesn't seem likely, as the revenue stream of the other party's specialty wouldn't be as fully developed without the other's distribution channels and expertise. So I'm wondering if an even bigger player, a 3rd much bigger conglomerate might be able to leverage the two streams to a greater degree than either Fresenius or Terumo alone?

    Nobody knows the answer to your question, outside of the company of course. PR's of extreme significance can come along at any time.

    What do you mean by "are we likely to go with this plan"? The word 'go'. Go 'up", go what? What do you mean "go"?

    Benefits of increasing PPS BEFORE up-listing

    The percentage moves of the underlying stock in each scenario are still the same. It's still a .16% move for both:
    .25 to .29 = 16% gain.
    $6.25 to $7.25 = also a 16% gain.

    The fundamental improvement now will get us to $2 ($50) faster than the paper cut increments we were getting on the OTCBB before.

    Are you a subtle basher, because it seems like it to me?

    The benefit is to be able to qualify for a major stock exchange, the NASDAQ in this case. The requirement I'm referring to is minimum price per share. When it clears this threshold for uplisting to a major stock exchange it also clears the way for certain mutual funds, sector funds, and Index funds to be able to buy, as often they will have a minimum price requirement at their firms, along with belonging on a sector on a major exchange. Basically a higher priced stock lends an element of credibility that is missing on the penny stock boards.

    A whole new level of participants are invited to the party so to speak, participants with a whole new level of financial backing.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • But it doesn't appear to have any trades today, with a wide bid/ask spread , $5.40 x $5.75, and 0 volume.

    Am I missing something, or is this the way its trading already?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • I'm still positive on the uses their flagship device will be used for, and is being used for right now for that matter. However my earlier expectations of a few years ago don't seem all that realistic anymore. I never was one of the straight to $50 or more guys here, and that's straight to $50 with NO reverse splits!

    But I did think we'd be north of .50 by the time we did a reverse split and got listed on a major exchange, hoping for a 10:1, or less, reverse ratio. As I said my expectations for several years was not for this to ever be a "straight to $50" stock, but it was more like a steady climb to $3 to $5, with no splits. $3 would have made me "rich", and $5 "very rich" in my book anyway.

    However, with the 25:1 reverse split announced, and the PPS not being able to get past the low .20's, we're talking about a $5.00ish price range now post R/S. I find it quite hard to believe now that a "one-device" company, even if it is selling to multi-use indications, can go from $5 to $25, which is still in the 'neighborhood' of about $1 a share R/S. And even for my earlier expectations of reaching $3 to $5 a share without any reverse splits at all, seems to me, and ardent bull on this company for several years, to just be plain 'fantasy' now. To reach my original pre-split $3 expectations we'd now have to see a post R/S PPS of approximately $75 a share, and to see my original $4 expectation realized now it would take a post R/S PPS of approximately $125 a share.

    Like I said, no matter how bullish I am on this stock, and have been for almost 6 years, I now no longer consider it realistic to see a "one-device", albeit a multi-use device, company's stock price going for $75 - $125 a share.

    Does anyone know of any other "one-device", mutli-use, device company's stock price selling for $75 - $125 a share?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • another .01 to .015 more cents and all the future so called RS/S1 stuff will be priced in. I'm other words we are likely, very likely, near the floor. A double from here by or before Feb, 2015. IMO.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Will be climbing over each other to get back in when PPS reaches presplit .35 I can see it now. LOL

    z3peru, I'm fairly certain most of the bashers here, and especially the longer term ones, who change their IDs frequently but keep the same style of bashing, are long time holders of CTSO who trade in and out of shares. This person(s) probably keeps a core position waiting for the common belief that one day soon something really big will happen with the PPS, and bashes out of frustration for the time delays and disappointments. This person is a basic complainer, vocal and expressing negative opinions and yet still owns a lesser to greater amount of shares at all times. The basis for most of the bashing I believe comes from frustration about being a long time owner of a core position that has never hit the 10 bagger lift he thought would happen, and might even think one day still could. Unless a buyout happens or a $100 a price post RS happens we will continue to hear him dump his frustrations on this board. In a strange sort of way I take it as a positive that this basher(s) is still here. He apparently sees enough light at the end of the tunnel to stick around with a position. That's the way I see it anyway.

    R/S prediction

    shortsaretoast shortsaretoast Oct 24, 2014 7:55 PM Flag

    15 million shares shouldn't affect future issuance in any way I wouldn't think. Future share issuance would be based on a dollar value and not a share numbers value. No matter how many numbers of shares for issuance there are the dollar value needed will be assigned to that number of shares whenever the time comes they need to raise more capital. I don't think a RS needs to factor this in at all. They will raise whatever Cspital thry need with whatever the numbers of shares are, or be forced to do a secondary and increase the authorized shares

    If your're right and it is 10:1 with a post split of say $3 a share, where do you see this 2-3 years later? $30-$40?

    I'd like to see Chan defend against

    Because it's different when a household name bashes us. It's a tad bit different than BMA 'warning' us, don't you think? I heard of this guy a long time ago, before I heard of any of the analyst names, and none of their firms except Zacks and Merriman. I think it deserves a response from Chan even if it's an email that he knows will be shared on the boards (for free) if nothing else.
