NanoViricides Inc. Denies Rumor That It Is Being Acquired For $4.5B

NanoViricides, Inc. (NYSE MKT:NNVC) (the “Company”) denies the statement made in a blog post on the Seeking Alpha website that it is being acquired for between $2.25B and $4.5B.

The new article was filed by a “MathewRohlad” in his instablog on the Seeking Alpha website. He identified himself as an investor in “undervalued large growth potential stocks."

The article entitled “NanoViricides (NNVC) Acquisition In Review” claims that an anonymous source informed the author that an unidentified entity is “intent on acquiring NanoViricides” and that this phantom entity valued the Company “between 2.5 to 4.5 billion dollars."

The author has not contacted any of the Company’s executives prior to this posting, nor has Seeking Alpha attempted to verify any portion of the story with the Company.

The Company has no knowledge of being an acquisition target, and has not had any discussions whatsoever of such nature with any parties. Eugene Seymour, MD, MPH, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of NanoViricides, said “We find it odd that Seeking Alpha would publish one story claiming the Company has no value and a second claiming that it is about to be acquired for possibly up to $4.5B.”

The Company provides information regarding its achievements, major corporate events, as well as business strategy, via its press releases, the quarterly and annual reports, and other SEC filings such as the current reports. The Company advises our investors and shareholders to obtain their information from these authentic sources, and perform due diligence based on credible and authoritative sources. The Company further advises our shareholders and investors that they should not rely on false and baseless statements from unknown and phantom entities, such as this post, as well as the prior post by an admitted short seller, both published on the Seeking Alpha website. The Company has filed an action in the Supreme Court of the State of New York to compel Seeking Alpha to disclose the identity of the person who wrote and published a defamatory, malicious, and libelous article about the Company on February 11, 2014, on the Seeking Alpha website, as previously reported.
