    I bought today. To answer Leanne's question below, I clearly think it's a good time to buy. There is no specific business reason today why it should go down, but elective procedures do go down in recessions, so if there is one there will be some temporary impact. Personally, I think that Covid and supply constraints have created pent-up demand for the type of procedures SNN offers, and since I like the future prospects of the company I bought.

    $MESO conversation
    To All New MESO shareholders and stem cell / MESO naysayers – a lot of us long-time shareholders (Minnesota, Left-e, Seanpierre1, Josephine, Frank/ Tarentella 123, Francesca, George, etc..) have been involved with Osiris for a very long time – some as early as the IPO, and others that have bought over the years. I first bought Osiris in 2011 after a lot of research and continued to buy over a period of years. When Osiris partnered with Mesoblast in October 2013, it was a huge disappointment in my mind – but in hindsight, is was a great decision by Peter Friedli. Peter knew that taking Prochymal – Remestemcel-L to market would have required a lot of capital/dilution. This enabled Osiris to focus on Grafix, GrafixPL, Stravix, etc. Peter was excellent at choosing the right partner for Osiris’ technology/science. NuVasive, Inc. $NUVA for Osteocel, Stryker Corporation $SYK for BIO4, Arthrex for BIO4, etc. until Smith & Nephew $SNN bought our Osiris in March of 2019. Peter was a co-founder of the Osiris along with Kevin Kimberlin. I would suggest EVERYONE search Kevin’s website – first and last name together dot com – to understand his background. I know some long term shareholders who had the opportunity to meet Kevin in the past at Osiris’ shareholders meetings. He is a very intelligent individual and his background is VERY IMPRESSIVE. The SCIENCE is ready for PRIME TIME. Anyone looking at the small sample size of the Covid-19 trial – need to look at the past trials and the success to draw any conclusions. Many of us have had the opportunity to tour Osiris’ headquarters in Maryland – their walls were lined with children that were saved by their SCIENCE. That was their motivation! Peter knew when to partner with the right company. We’ll see when/if MESO will partner with big pharma – hopefully it’s north of $75/share. Until then, do your own research and understand the science/history. We’re at a critical stage of stem cell therapies and MESO is the BEST horse in the race. Disclaimer: long a lot of $ATHX too! …. And the $MDXG Cheerleaders deserve a shout out to – you shouldn’t have drank Pete’s Kool-Aid and listened to Beef, Peter, Wendy, Frozen, BrianX, Homebuilder, etc. – they’re all clueless and people that follow them - continue to miss a great opportunity!

    While the departure is surprising, I can’t see it having much effect on the company’s continued growth. I happily added some shares at this price.

    Seems that SNN is down most likely because of the virus. People that need replacement parts are waiting until they can get in to hospitals to get the work done. At the end of this virus crisis SNN will do very well. Question is how much further will it drop? Neutral for now.

    Darn, it would have been sweet

    In April we
    completed the acquisition of Osiris Therapeutics, Inc., a fast-growing company delivering regenerative medicine products,
    including skin, bone-graft and articular cartilage substitutes. The Osiris portfolio delivered double-digit growth in the quarter
    and we expect it to improve the overall growth outlook for Advanced Wound Bioactives.
