GREAT summary! I attended the meeting also, but in no way could I have written down/summarized things as quickly and as well as you did. It was hard enough for me to keep up with the speed with which Craig Wheeler speaks!

One expansion/clarification: you said "One shareholder commented that TEVA seems to get away with making statements that seem to have to support in fact". I don't remember my exact words, but I said something to the effect that TEVA repeatedly issued legal, but misleading statements. That got a laugh from the audience, which I appreciated, and got a "thumbs up" from the director sitting in front of me. I forget whether I was asking a question or making a statement at the time. Maybe you can tell me! :-)

IMHO, the Palo Alto guy was way out of line in a couple of ways 1) I don't think he initially identified himself, and 2) his use of the word "we" - as in "We want you to consider x,y, & z" (as you said, buybacks, dividends, etc.) - as if he was speaking for everyone. I guess he can report to his investors that he took his case directly to the Board, but given what I understand to be Momenta's situation, but his "presentation" sounded selfish and short-sighted.

It was my first meeting, and I came away very impressed.
