    I called and someone named Hillary answered.
    I politely asked if I could speak to HR.
    She said no, send an email.
    Then she asked if it was classified.
    I said no.
    She said, hey look, just send it anyways.

    From highway 50, down Bradshaw to the right turn into the town of Elk Grove there was almost nothing but ranch land. At the right turn there was an attorney that owned a ranch with 300 acres and 12 horses. I also worked in Folsom on occasion 15 and plus years ago.

    Companies usually get what they want. There's lots of boring information under section 951 - Frank Dodd and section 14a - Exchange Act - and other rules.

    There's several SEC sites that have a chapter per topic, including:
    SEC - Office of Investors Education and Advocacy
    Investor Bulletin:
    Say-on-Pay and Golden Parachute Votes

    "The rules require companies to provide a separate shareholder advisory vote to approve certain golden parachute compensation arrangements in connection with a merger, acquisition, consolidation, sale or other disposition, proposed sale or other disposition of all or substantially all assets."

    "Companies are required to comply with the golden parachute compensation shareholder advisory vote and disclosure requirements in proxy statements and other schedules and forms initially filed on or after April 25, 2011."

    Exelixis would have to follow the Frank Dodd Act and other 'fore set' rules.

    As said before: Such as times with the medical, the financial side is involved and can't be discussed completely or in length on a message board. A large law firm will have a large law library where one would find volumes with updates on financial matters. The web as well, but even professionals may not always find what they want on the web.

    Exelixis would be required to call a separate shareholder vote to approve golden parachutes in the case of M&A. Companies usually get the votes.

    I agree. I do believe that a general market correction will happen in the next two years. Many towns are becoming consumer retail cities where retail real estate demassification may develop similar effects to the prime loan housing crisis. Mall traffic is slowing as many are buying with electronic devices. Amazon will continue to roll. A few years ago, Folsom California was just a horse grazing town with a prison. Now there's thousands of retailers competing with one another.

    - low volume trading by the converts -- I use extended Level II and refer to several other data reporting sites.

    - R/G -- Roche Genentech

    - ISTs -- investigator sponsored - endorsement
    - will additional others be generous with terms - per our new cash. That was a question to compare from the 'Street'. The Street is hedgers on watch to see what MM does with cash.

    - Physically -- Home office to Cambridge

    I think that Wilder's strategy is what a non risk investor would do. I'm been on the same page beginning with - " the short volume will belie". I started posting very bullish since 3.60 with mention of Ispen, credit ratios, ASCO, and possible upgrades which are filtering in. Our now single convert hasn't been very active for almost a month - and the market makers had to adjust to this. Retail trading has increased in the last two weeks as seen on L II. The Street is wanting to hear, totally sponsored trails, but with cash from Ispen, will sponsors back as many $ ? Last year, the CEO of R/G said that Exelixis is a valued research partner, but between the lines, I interrupted no buyout from them. I think there's a possibly that Exelixis may set up shop again in Massachusetts.

    Secretary of State registration file number is 001153156. Lots of CEO connections to Cambridge Massachusetts. I spent a lot of time in Cambridge when I was younger. Now, I'm only a few stone throws from SF. My parents once owned areas of country land in Massachusetts with lakes and streams. I wish that I could go back in time just to fishing rods and a game of horse shoes with my parents.

    There's 30 States where a company can register corporate title establishment when their home office is in another State. About 1.5 years ago, Exelixis completed registration with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. One reason why this was done, was to advert any outside interest penalty as in conflict of interest for BOD members. A second reason could be tax considerations for product development and distribution. A third reason gets involved, which has to do a possible ongoing favorite partnership or a future partnership that would reflect back to conflicts of interest. There's many foreign drug companies that also have establishment in Massachusetts as well as US drug companies. Any possible friendly M&A might have bearing to either California or Massachusetts. I don't see a friendly takeover until several members of the BOD retire from the Board.

    Buyout

    The convertible debt isn't an impediment. Exelixis lacks in R&D, but they do have discovery units - one for compound patenting. R&D is often about establishing future income - sales. This could come about by an needed infusion of cash to increase sales. Add to that, monies to develop intellectual property. Company is seen to have had friendly table discussions per patterning360, although round table / panels are not allowed to mention names of companies. I've seen interesting talk on M&A legal sites, but hedge funds are always listening, so I take that with a grain of salt. We had mostly clean trading for the last several weeks with little evidence of convert trading which slowed down the MMs.

    Homeland Security is warning all Windows PC users to uninstall QuickTime as soon as possible. They are calling an "urgent need to action." Apple will not continue to patch security vulnerabilities. "DHS's United States Computer Readiness Team (US - CERT) put out a similar alert warning. Micro Trend and MSFT are now advising to uninstall QT.
    These cyber crooks are all ready into Yahoo's portals. On some security non Yahoo boards there's large numbers of "lookers" "readers" at any given time.

    Joe, your problem may be associated with SQNM, but you and many of us that use Yahoo finance have been infiltrated. Yahoo hasn't updated, but thousands of users were hit last year or the year before. "Many attackers have infiltrated the Yahoo web portal's. When visitors came by the sites, they discreetly download malware files to the visitor's computer." They find a task exe. file such as attask or QTTask - a remote file. I'm not giving advice, but I uninstalled both files and Quicktime. All problems solved immediately.

    My problem started when I had posted on Yahoo news. The article was about the CEO of Facebook and his opinion about gun ownership. I called him a hypocrite as he has 14/15 guards protecting his home. A poster threaten me and said that he was going to junk my id. I stated to get words added to my posts and post deletions on Yahoo central, not finance. From deep into his history, he stated that he once worked for Face and now Apple.

    Joe,
    I had removed the post because of some stupid grammar mistakes with the intention of reposting it later. Having a really bad headache - loud ear ringing. I was just wondering if either at home or at work your computers contain any attask or task programming. If you posted from work as a biologist the computers most likely have task programs. This is by far the most common way that personal information from using Yahoo can be obtained. I had this problem, contacted Microsoft and my personal security provider and was instructed to remove attask, which was a hidden program on my computer. Since then no one has been able to delete or add words to my Yahoo posts. I do understand that when a Yahoo finance poster removes a post, any later thread posts will disappear. I didn't see you post on that thread, so I thought that it was a spam reporting for Wilder and myself.

    Sorry - correction
    I'm so stuck on the letters MM. The CEO and market makers. It should be M&A.

    I owned the dogs, but my wife owned the horses before I met her. Hatch in common shows honesty. As evil as a bond holder, our 2 largest past holders were out for more than just a rate of income. They wanted the company to fail. JPM doesn't want to close the books. They want GS pushed aside to receive the income from a M&M.

    Wilder, no doubt we were both reported for spam and had our posts removed. Posts are still in our history. Both source sites do not contain malware, unlike the daily spam malware #$%$ that Yahoo allows.

    A few years ago I wrote a few Yahoo blogs (have copies) about JPM, their Highbridge arm and six other JPM hedge funds concerning manipulation and the CFTC. Read an older article - 2010 "Andrew Maquire exposes systemic fraud by CFTC and JPM.

    Highbridge often uses forex methods for gap indications. Slightly lower volume shown today points to an exhaustion gap. ASCO will have a lot to do with resistance. The medical side posters should be able to determine if we find support. Wilder and company may have updated thoughts about ASCO that could determine short term future pricing.
