Oncosil Clarification and Apology

Life is tough as a public company. Commenting on ASX bioscience companies can sometimes also be tough. This week I received a “shot across the bow” from Oncosil’s (ASX : OSL) lawyers in relation to my posts on the company (communication here, with some names/contact details obfuscated for privacy/courtesy purposes, including my own).

Optheapology

In a prior post I lightly dissed Circadian’s new name (ASX : CIR) – Opthea. In my defence, you surely knew it was coming… though I should clarify, for the avoidance of doubt, that I have always liked the name Opthea better than “sister company” Vegenics. Yuk.

Anteo Energy : One MILLION Dollars

Almost Antisensible : Correction

Normally I pride myself on being reasonably thorough when I comment on a company. In this instance (my prior post), I was sloppy and I apologise, I did not look closely at the other ASX disclosures around the deal and missed the Appendix 3B filing. I will not make excuses but I figure if paid-up…
