Hemispherx announces voluntary stock purchase plan Hemispherx Biopharma announced a Voluntary Pay for Stock Plan. Hemispherx Biopharma is seeking to create ownership incentives as well as to provide additional cash for various operational activities. All members of Senior Management, all members of the board, and all employees volunteered to participate. Senior Management believes that this Plan creates significant shareholder value as the participants will voluntarily use up to 20% of their salaries to purchase stock from the company, creating long term incentives for them to reach corporate goals. In addition, the CEO/Chairman and President/CFO, will both voluntarily reduce their salaries further to a cumulative reduction of 50%. The plan goes into effect immediately.
