  • Inbox issue: thanks to a minor glitch in the system, we have managed to create 3 new "phantom" PMs in your inboxes. So if you notice that your unread message counter has gone up by 3 and yet there are no new PMs in your inbox, that's why.  It's our fault. You may be able to force the counter to reset by opening and closing other PMs in your inbox by clicking on the envelope icon. Sorry for the confusion.

Re: Questions about the release of the FDA Decision

Sorry you got stopped out but here are the answers to your questions:

1. Is it possible an FDA decision delay could still be announced prior to the 6/27 date? Yes, a delay could come but likely not at this juncture. What would be more common is the FDA just missing the date completely, it happens.

2. Does anyone know if FDA delay announcements ALWAYS occur > 7 days ahead of the announcement? No, see answer above.

3. When a decision is released does the FDA post it on a public website or is the company notified and they issue a press release? Both. Generally they will notify the company via a fax and the company will issue a PR shortly there after. They've made the mistake before of announcing in on their website even before the company issues a PR.

4. Can the decision announcement come during market hours or are they always after hours? It can come at any time. Even this afternoon. It will generally come during business hours East Coast time. Halting the stock is a NASDAQ decision but generally you will see a halt before the PR comes out.
