    Yeah, at 7.95% in a zero-rate environment.

    The only folks getting 0% rates are banks and folks keeping their money in the banks. Try getting a loan without security for 30M and see what the interest rate is. Banks are charging more for car loans....

    For a phase 2 drug company....less than what a home mortgage was a few years ago. That indeed, is a great interest rate. The lender has no guarantee that they'll get their money back other than they must also believe in the drug(s).

     

    So, yeah....that's a really good interest rate.

     

    I wouldn't loan them my money unless I thought I was going to get it back....Robert Garnett involved or not.

    The fact that they received the loan without diluting the stock speaks volumes. There should be extremely good news coming.
