HEB’s insiders are looting the company:

While pumpers are mindlessly pumping HEB on various message boards, officers and directors have been engaged in a game of their own: systematically looting the company to the greatest extent possible. Last week, without even waiting for FDA action on the Ampligen BLA, HEB paid the CEO a $300K bonus and the CMO a $150K bonus (#msg-38179694).

The BoD had the audacity to grant these bonuses despite the fact that HEB cut the salaries of its non-executive employees in Jan 2009. Despite the fact that the CEO received more than $1M in compensation in 2008. Despite the fact that the CEO received almost $3M in compensation in 2007.

Want more? HEB pays each non-employee director $150K per annum merely to attend board meetings! You can find these and other details in the recent DEF14A filing: http://sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/946644/000114420409029059/v150612_def14a.htm .

I shudder to think how much insiders will pay themselves if by some miracle the FDA actually approves Ampligen.

the foremost piece of B.S. ever promulgated
in any area of human knowledge!”
