Actually, PR is excellent at SIGA. Each quarter, SIGA hosts a conference call to answer all questions about the latest qtrs. earnings and events. Philip Bushnell, the CFO usually handles queries about numbers and often, calls to the company. Information is also sent out by interactive fax at 1-800-pro-info. All you need is a phone and fax to get information instantly. SIGA employs a top West Coast PR firm. Splitting the stock was not "stupid"; it made the shares more liquid so more funds and money managers could take block positions. Professional traders disliked the split PRIOR to the secondary; they would have preferred it vice versa. There's lots of professional interest in SIGA, and management is doing an excellent job of guiding the company's growth and strategies.

secondary offering?

i thought the secondary offering was put off... when is it? do you know earnings estimate, etc? have estimates been lowered because of the failure to meet them last quarter?

My understanding is that the secondary will be done if it can go off on terms favorable to SIGA. If the price is depressed, they won't do it. It pretty much leaves it to the underwriter to keep the price supported. So it's a good trading buy if the price dips. SIGA mngmnt. appears to be in no hurry to give away the stock at a cheap price. One savvy holder of SIGA stock calculates his estimate of SIGA's quarterly earnings 4 quarters out and multiplies by 50 to get a target price. Given that sales in TX are apparently going through the roof (and that's where Compaq's at), I'd expect operating EPS to be strong, and I'd discount any extraordinary items. SIGA is likely to look for another acquisition if the secondary goes off. They need another facility near clients outside California.

I don't know a date, but I expect the secondary to happen. Quick turn requires having adequate plant capacity to get an order to the customer in 30 days or less, and one way to gain time is to locate facilities near major customers. More sales staff means more orders; more orders means more factory capacity is needed.

I've not heard anything, but it seems unlikely. The shares are very underpriced here, and I can't see management entertaining a buyout at anything close to these levels.

did siga warn of lower than expected earnings or something. stock
price has been beaten down and volume has been somewhat substantial.
but i can't seem to find any news. i bought this one at 14.25 and sold
to cut losses at 11. did not think it would tank this low. looks like this
selloff is a little overdone and it is time to buy more. management
is pretty good and it is just a matter of time before this one takes off
again. industry looking strong. CHECK for yourself! look at slr, merx,
sanm etcetra. all i can say is it is time to buy this one back for a long
term triple or better...

siga made a pretty strong upmove today on what appears to be no
knews. if they make their estimate, this stock is so undervalued its
pathetic. looks good to me still and i plan to buy on any weakness.
