    Please help me on the numbers here. From the latest Q10 (Page 9+10) is stated that 1847 Series A-1 is outstanding at september 30th. One series A-1 converts into 2,437.57 common shares. This equals "only" 4,502,192 common shares to dillute (from ultimo september 2014)

    what am I missing?

    We dont know how many shares Tang wants to unload. I guess he will hold long quite a bit. But as Tamara has pointed out: Its a part of a plan to make RXII more attractive for institutionals. If Tang possesses half the Company it might be less attractive to enter.

    New money for biotechs

    I dont think so Hanna. But wise Money stays on the sideline until its clear that Tang sold whatever amount of shares he wants to sell.

  • Bessemer Venture Partners is rolling out a global fund with $1.6 billion to invest in a range of new technologies--including biotech.

    Best known for investing in some high-profile tech seedlings that grew into some big oaks, like Skype, Bessemer has been a busy biotech investor over the years as well. Its biotech portfolio includes Cerulean ($CERU), Aveo, Alnara and Verastem (Christoph Westphal). Big plays of the past include Isis ($ISIS) and Affymax and Sirtris (Westphal again, who knows how to make his partners happy). And Bessemer has been following up on some close relationships in the business, joining some more recent startup syndicates for companies like Stromedix--bought by Biogen Idec ($BIIB)--Allena and Alcresta, where it once again partnered up with Third Rock and Frazier.

    BVP IX follows a busy time for BVP VIII, with the partners reportedly counting 35 new investments and 21 exits, including IPOs for Cerulean and Proteon Therapeutics ($PRTO).

    "We work roughly on a four-year cycle. We were coming to the end of BVP VIII and we like to plan ahead and will start investing in this fund (BVP IX) in the summer time frame, so we don't slow down our investing pace," partner Byron Deeter told TechCrunch. Bessemer has teams based in Boston, New York, Silicon Valley, India, Brazil and Israel.

    Bessemer is topping up a new fund at a propitious time. New Enterprise Associates is putting together its own $2.5 billion fund, which follows new raises for the full slate of VCs still active in the wake of the 2008 crisis. With the IPO market still open to strong contenders, a tsunami of exits had opened the door to new funds like these--which promise to fill the sails of a fleet of new upstarts.

    "This is an exciting time," Bessemer notes in its release. "In almost every sector of technology, we see disruption as whole categories are reinvented and new categories born. As investors, we are believers in the transformative power of technology. Source: FierceBiotech

    It's not all about Tang

    Thanks Grabbngo. You are right - my bad - there is no other player than Tang. RTW sold out.

    Tang can take this into the dust, but he can also take RXII to a much higher level. Some time ago Tamara told us that a part of the strategy to attract institutional investors is to make sure that shares are divided on several hands. One/Two dominant player(s) with 50%+ / majority of shares) is not attractive for new institutional investors. I think that Tang is selling out in understanding with RXII - with the purpuse of making RXII more attractive for institutionals. (And I would like Geert to make much larger insiderbuys soon to confirm that my theory is right)

    I dont see how Tang can benefit from a low shareprice. But I do se how he can benefit from a high. Then I think that Tang holds a big portion of his Series A to benefit in the years to come according to the Progress RXII is actually making. A current marketvalue of 26 mio is hugely undervalued. Count in those unconverted shares and the marketvalue with current pps may be around 40 mio USD. Still much to low. I have the scenario of another RNA-i player Tekimira (TKMR) in mind in development in pps for RXII - and I hope we are very near the bottom.

    But it is pretty much about Tang. Isnt it.

    This conversion of prefered shares has effectively dilluted RXII with 10 mio shares in 2014 as Tamara points out. Shares sold out in the open market. Often in connection with company presentations, where Tang rightfully expect increased buying pressure. Because the technology works. But pps plummet as Tang uses these opportunities to dump 100ths of thousands of newly converted shares. Therefore the pps has plummeted from 7 to 1.23 in a year. Converting and dilluting 10 mio shares takes its toll.

    But as bbear points out at StockTwits. Tang is practically done with this conversion. They only can convert in all 11 mio shares. They did 10 mio in 2014, and has continued in 2015. Not a lot left. Pretty soon Tang has done his business. Another player has similar 11 mio shares to go, but my take is that he/they are holding his part.

    If not we are toast,

    But My guess is that if he had the same idea of converting shares, he would have started earlier getting more Money out of the process.

    Therefore my take is that in the near future RXII has the potential to rocket to much higher levels in a very short time. Buyes have been here all along, but Tang providing supply-side with 10 mio extra shares in 2014 is a tough one to fight

    It was the germans you helped us with. Huge an many Thanks for that. #$%$-ideologi is like fundamentalistic Islam. The idea of the pure and clean human beeing ctr the filthy and disbelievers. But Germany is now our friends and good neighbourhgs. (Our family take a hollyday a month from now in Germany - very nice people). Germany is a stronghold in Europe. Europe needs USA, but US needs Europes 800 mio people as well.

    The Toblerone bar shape got inspiration from the swiss Alp-mountain Matterhorn,
    A decade ago a slept with my wife in a tiny tiny tent just below that beautiful mountain.

    As a European I can tell you that practically no-one in Europe wants handguns among civil people. A strange idea to arm ordinary families with guns. Then criminals carry guns to. Only in America - and keep that "over there" please. Its quite rare that criminals in Denmark are armed. And if they are they get a much harder punishment when caught. And of course it wil be high priority for the police to catch those people.

    Value. I feel very well happy and peaceful having shares in a company undervalued in a fatcor 10+.

    Value is the key. Liquidity is a tecnical issue to be solved. And is already dealt with by the way.
