I have no doubt that the company will be able to raise another $150,000,000 to launch Afrezza if it is approved although It may involve additional dilution and Al kicking in another $75,000,000.
The bottom line in regards to the share value is whther or not Mannkind can find a marketing partner.
At the time of the last F.D.A. decisions sans marketing partner the market cap was $1.22 billion. It is anticipated that Mannkind will have 420,000,000 shares outstanding at the time of the next F.D.A. decision in April 2014.
If Mannkind's maket cap is similar to what it was the last time this would equate to a share price of about
Anyone buying shares currently is betting on a partnership.
Mannkind would need to raise about $150,000,000 to market Afrezza if the company can't find a partner.
Just a thought!!!

"The Stage is Now Set for Growth: Focus on Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s"
“We began the quarter with a strong emphasis on the Company’s lead therapeutic program: a disease-modifying treatment for Parkinson’s. As the quarter concludes we are set to announce additional animal data in that program, as well as a number of updates on other aspects of our MANF Program. Parkinson’s continues to be at the core of the Company’s plans for the future while we evaluate the value of other MANF programs, including Myocardial Infarction, Traumatic Brain Injury and Orphan diseases. We will be providing updates in regards to each of these other programs in the near future.”
“A key area of internal focus over the last quarter has been on our recently licensed LymPro Alzheimer’s Diagnostic Blood Test, which has taken on increasing importance as the role of early stage diagnostics has been further validated by the FDA’s clear guidance to pharmaceutical companies regarding the need to focus therapeutic development on early stage patients. There are a number of disease-modifying drug candidates with blockbuster potential currently in late-stage development by leading biopharmaceutical companies; LymPro would enhance those programs by providing drug developers with a better way to efficiently conduct the NDA-enabling Phase 3 clinical trials required to gain FDA approval. We are finalizing product development plans in this area over the next several weeks, and will announce further details on those plans thereafter.
