Hemispherx Biopharma Inc Reports Operating Results (10-Q/A)

February 14, 2011 | About:

Hemispherx Biopharma Inc (HEB) filed Amended Quarterly Report for the period ended 2010-06-30.

Hemispherx Biopharma Inc has a market cap of $65.57 million; its shares were traded at around $0.4848 with and P/S ratio of 590.68. Hedge Fund Gurus that owns HEB: Steven Cohen of SAC Capital Advisors, Jim Simons of Renaissance Technologies LLC, Jim Simons of Renaissance Technologies LLC.

Highlight of Business Operations:

Our common stock is listed for quotation on the NYSE Amex. For the 12 month period ended June 30, 2010, the closing price of our common stock has ranged from $0.44 to $3.31 per share. We expect the price of our common stock to remain volatile. The average daily trading volume of our common stock varies significantly.

Provisions of our Certificate of Incorporation and Delaware law may make it more difficult for someone to acquire control of us or for our stockholders to remove existing management, and might discourage a third party from offering to acquire us, even if a change in control or in Management would be beneficial to our stockholders. For example, our Certificate of Incorporation allows us to issue shares of preferred stock without any vote or further action by our stockholders. Our Board of Directors has the authority to fix and determine the relative rights and preferences of preferred stock. Our Board of Directors also has the authority to issue preferred stock without further stockholder approval. As a result, our Board of Directors could authorize the issuance of a series of preferred stock that would grant to holders the preferred right to our assets upon liquidation, the right to receive dividend payments before dividends are distributed to the holders of common stock and the right to the redemption of the shares, together with a premium, prior to the redemption of our common stock. In this regard, in November 2002, we adopted a Stockholder Rights Plan (“Rights Plan”) and, under the Rights Plan, our Board of Directors declared a dividend distribution of one Right for each outstanding share of Common Stock to stockholders of record at the close of business on November 29, 2002. Each Right initially entitles holders to buy one-hundredth unit of preferred stock for $30.00. The Rights generally are not transferable apart from the common stock and will not be exercisable unless and until a person or group acquires or commences a tender or exchange offer to acquire, beneficial ownership of 15% or more of our common stock. However, for Dr. Carter, our Chief Executive Officer, who already beneficially owns 5.3% of our common stock, the Rights Plan s threshold will be 20%, instead of 15%. The Rights Plan will expire on November 19, 2012, and may be redeemed prior thereto at $.01 per Right under certain circumstances.
