15:26 EDTGALEGalena responds to article by TheStreet.com
Galena Biopharma issued a letter to its shareholders in response to recent media attention stemming from an article by TheStreet.com. "Dear Shareholders: Due to the recent media attention on Galena Biopharma that we acknowledge is having an impact on investor confidence, we felt it necessary, as a service to our shareholders, to publicly respond to the discussions and set the record straight. The genesis of this attention is due to a single reporter, Adam Feuerstein from TheStreet.com, who clearly has an agenda when it comes to Galena. This can be evidenced by his numerous, tabloid-like articles on the company that have appeared over the past three years and are sensational but largely devoid of true information. The article this week is just another in the line, which for us have become noise. Mr. Feuerstein has never requested a meeting with the company to understand the details of our programs or the goals of the company. On the contrary, his requests for information are consistently accusatory and negative. As a result, we do not feel it is worthwhile to engage him or respond to other media outlets that serve to advance his agenda. However, we do recognize that you, our shareholders, deserve a direct response on the matters at hand. The only facts in Mr. Feuerstein's most recent article that are remotely accurate are that Galena previously engaged the DreamTeamGroup and that insiders at the company, including me, divested shares in mid January. All other accusations in this article as with his prior reporting on Galena are specious and conveniently arranged to create controversy."
