I agree with most of this post, however the already complicated negotiations regarding a partnership would never be complicated with a thoroughly impractical and impossible condition that the Share price of the junior partner reach a certain level otherwise neither partner would have any reasonable hope of concluding the deal. Could NWBO conceal a partnership until the price reached a certain level? Doubtful and why on Earth would they want to? Share price is irrelevant to partnering negotiations in most instances, one would think. CPXX was trading at $1.36 when its results were released and it shot to $20 plus and was bought out for $30 plus sixty days later. <br /> Gilead recently bought out a cancer company with a failed Phase 2 trial of its lead drug for $20 billion. So yes I agree $30 Billion is the floor of what NWBO would demand for a buyout if TLD results are good as we expect.
