(Euronext Growth Dublin:MLC) (Malin), a company investing in highly innovative life sciences companies, is pleased to note that Mycovia Pharmaceuticals (Mycovia), a company in which Malin's investee company, Viamet Pharmaceuticals (Viamet), has a significant economic interest, has announced positive topline results from its two pivotal Phase 3 VIOLET clinical trials for oteseconazole, its drug candidate for treating patients with recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (RVVC).Topline data shows that Mycovia's pivotal Phase 3 VIOLET studies' primary and secondary efficacy endpoints successfully met statistical significance through Week 48. Mycovia also announced that it expects to have topline data from its third Phase 3 trial, an ultraVIOLET clinical trial evaluating the clinical effectiveness of oteseconazole compared to fluconazole, by year end. Data from all three clinical studies will be submitted as part of Mycovia's planned NDA submission in the first half of 2021 with an expected US launch in 2021.

These data present the promise of a safe and effective therapy for women suffering from this chronic infection where there is currently no FDA approved therapy,"�said Darragh Lyons, Malin Chief Executive Officer. "We look forward to the final Phase 3 data and submission of a NDA over the coming months which will hopefully trigger the initiation of economic returns to Viamet shareholders, including Malin." �Malin owns approximately 15% of Viamet and carried its investment in Viamet at an estimated fair value of #$%$80.1 million at 30 June 2020 under International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation guidelines.

    That is what is fun about this stock. You have to be inventive. You have to see how all the other bios are doing. You have to know Neil Woodford. BTW, before we call him disgraced, it might be smart to think what would have happened had been allowed to continue. Now, several of his bios are on fire. The man must have known what he was doing. I am just trying to be realistic here. Apparently, he saw something. Going 'Up Round The Bend" Creedence C R and a guitar lead that blew your mind, You have to plug in the pieces, read the Conferences, read between the lines, DO YOUR HOMEWORK, and pray that you don't forget something. By the time you are finished, your mind is lit up with possible SPAC's for future consideration. You have a working knowledge of Pharma's, public and private company's and many posters willing to do the digging for a bone. It is fun. Worth the ride for playing the game. I can't forget, Frustrating, but worth it. Sit back, enjoy, and check on your other stocks. Have a good evening.

    Awe! Trending. The amount of people checking out a stock compared to others. ACTG in 5th spot as I write. Could be a good or a bad thing depending on what's happening now. Looks like a positive this morning even though the volume is anemic. What's that song by Kenny Rogers. Don't Count Your Money Till The Dealings Done!.. Only problem, we have a slow dealer.

    Mycovia Pharmaceuticals Submits New Drug Application to the U.S. FDA for Oteseconazole for the Treatment of Recurrent Vulvovaginal Candidiasis
    - NDA supported by positive data from VIOLET and ultraVIOLET Phase 3 clinical trials evaluating oteseconazole in more than 870 women in 11 countries -
    - Oteseconazole’s Qualified Infectious Disease Product and Fast-Track designations allow for six-month priority review by FDA following its acceptance of the NDA -

    DURHAM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mycovia Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Mycovia”), an emerging biopharmaceutical company dedicated to recognizing and empowering those living with unmet medical needs by developing novel therapies, today announced it has submitted its New Drug Application (NDA) for oteseconazole, an oral antifungal product for the treatment of recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (RVVC). Also known as chronic yeast infection, RVVC is a debilitating infectious condition defined by as three or more episodes per year. Although RVVC affects nearly 138 million women worldwide each year and 6 million women in the U.S. alone, there are currently no FDA-approved treatments.

    “ “We believe, if approved, oteseconazole will provide an important treatment option for healthcare professionals and their patients. “

    We are thrilled to take this pivotal step in our journey to bring oteseconazole to millions of women suffering from RVVC,” said Patrick Jordan, CEO of Mycovia Pharmaceuticals and Partner at NovaQuest Capital Management, which formed Mycovia in 2018. “If approved, oteseconazole will be the first FDA-approved therapy for the treatment of this disease. We are proud to be at the forefront of a growing movement in healthcare to focus on undertreated conditions like RVVC, which can negatively impact so many aspects of a woman’s life physically, emotionally and financially.”

    Oteseconazole was designed to be highly selective for its pathogenic target, with fewer side effects and improved efficacy over current treatment options, including fluconazole, the current standard of care for vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC). Oteseconazole’s clinical development plan was comprised of three trials – two global VIOLET studies and one U.S.-focused ultraVIOLET study, including more than 870 patients at 232 sites across 11 countries. Both VIOLET studies met their primary and key secondary endpoints. Additionally, results from ultraVIOLET demonstrated oteseconazole’s effectiveness in treating acute episodes of VVC and reinforced its efficacy and safety profile in treating RVVC as compared to fluconazole. Combined Phase 3 data showed that oteseconazole protected more than 90% of participants from having a recurrence for nearly a year.

    RVVC is an area of tremendous unmet need for which there is currently no FDA-approved treatment. Research shows that fluconazole, the standard of care for VVC, is more than 90% effective in treating an acute episode of VVC1, but in studies of patients with RVVC, greater than 50% of RVVC women experience a recurrence following maintenance therapy discontinuation2,” said Thorsten Degenhardt, PhD, Chief Operating Officer of Mycovia. “We believe, if approved, oteseconazole will provide an important treatment option for healthcare professionals and their patients.”
    Given oteseconazole’s Qualified Infectious Disease Product (QIDP) and Fast-Track designations, Mycovia anticipates a six-month review following the FDA’s acceptance of the NDA. With this timeline and pending full FDA approval, Mycovia is preparing for a U.S. launch of oteseconazole in early 2022.

    The intrigue of this company is that it is impossible to evaluate it on an EPS basis since it is an asset play and many of the assets have yet to be revealed and/or evaluated. Those that have been flushed out have some assignable value attached to them but, with Starboard the behind the scenes Champion, lots of value has yet to surface.

    Starboard's street cred is high enough that I'm assuming they know how to best play their interest in ACTG....so I'm happy to hold and not be terribly concerned about EPS estimates....as long as the cooks are in the kitchen stirring the pot and doing all they can to maximize the company's ultimate value.

    Acacia Research Group ($ACTG) May 18, 2021 Patent Litigation Update


    First, Acacia Research Group ($ACTG) is my largest small cap position at the moment. It was nice to be back on the conference call asking patent related questions yesterday morning. I inquired about the floor on materiality that would trigger an 8K being filed because the company has a number of settlements so far in Q2. The company passed on answering my question, which is perfectly fine. Saying very little when you are involved in complicated patent litigation or ongoing licensing discussions is always my preferred strategy. Much has been written about their biotech positions acquired from the Woodford liquidation. Nothing has been written about their patent business.
    1) Acacia has their first trial under new management scheduled for jury selection on July 12, 2021 in the Eastern District of Texas with Cisco in their Orange/France telecom portfolio. A reasonably good Markman Opinion was issued on January 7, 2021. Inter Partes Reviews were denied in March 2021. Cisco has filed a round of ex partes reexaminations in April 2021 pending review decisions. Estimating patent damages a plaintiff will ask for ahead of trial is very difficult. The damages number is normally released in opening statements or in the first few days of the plaintiff’s trial presentation.
    Their second Monarch Networking portfolio with a patent acquired from Siemens had a Markman hearing and order issued on February 4, 2021 construing the four terms to their plain and ordinary meaning. A Unified Patents filed Inter Partes Review was filed October 1, 2020 and an institution decision is due by June 3, 2021. A jury trial is scheduled for November 15, 2021.

    2) Their Unification Technologies (Fio Semiconductor) portfolio had a Markman hearing March 5, 2021 with an order issued on March 12, 2021 construing the disputed terms. A scheduling order was entered with a jury trial scheduled for June 13, 2022 in the Western District of Texas in front of HJ Albright. Joint Motions to Dismiss (Settlements) were filed on April 27 & 28th with defendants HP and Dell. The remaining defendant is the largest one in Micron. Inter Partes Reviews were filed by Micron on December 22, 2020. Decisions on institution are due by the middle of July 2021.

    3) The important development that I am tracking and the reason for my conference call questions are pending settlements with Samsung, which indicates the parties have negotiated a global settlement/license across all of their portfolios. Notice of Settlements and litigation stays have been filed/entered on the court dockets in the R2 Solutions LLC (Yahoo/Excalibur) & Stingray IP Solutions (L3Harris) portfolios. I think the value of the deal could be borderline material especially if it included the Newracom portfolio, which includes 212 US patent assets plus their foreign counterparts. I am hoping the deal can be closed shortly and included in the Q2 2021 results disclosed in early to mid August 2021.

    The R2 Solutions (Yahoo) is in the early stages with the following defendants remaining:
    • Target
    • Walmart
    • Deezer SA
    • Workday, Inc
    • Fidelity Brokerage Services
    • Charles Schwab
    • JPMorgan Chase
    The Stingray IP Solutions (L3Harris) is also in early stage litigation with:
    • Signify NV
    • TP-Link Technologies
    There are a few one off small portfolios that are in various stages of litigation that I am working through. I believe the Newracom to be the most valuable portfolio Acacia has acquired to date and look forward to litigation cases filed and u

    What we need is some transparency to interest investors. However, I know that a certain amount of discretion should be used to keep adversaries at bay. The business, by nature, shuts out the ability to do diligence or research. As Oilman and Peter say, "show me the money". It becomes difficult to be on top of the game without a hint of progression.
    The short positions are not a problem at this level. They also probably having a problem gaging what will happen next. I do get the feeling that something big is in the works. The who, how, and when is the mystery. I personally have decided to keep adding shares down low and hope something happens within a reasonable time. There aren't many other stocks out there for me to invest in presently in my opinion. I guess, patience, and more patience. I don't worry much about book value as long as Starboard is in place. Good evening from West Texas.
