Reflections on Cytori- the years 2006-11

MacroPore was from an investors viewpoint- kind of "the dark side" of Cytori- not only because of the failed Medtronic partnership on bio-resorbable implants, but also because of excessive option-plans and failed guidances on revenues etc. The preceeding article "History" was a more objective article and facts driven- what follows is surely also "facts driven", but has definitely a more subjective colour, in view of unrealized potential of the technology that Cytori possesses ( Icall it the "regenerative goldmine"), which potential has not been monetized by the management by any reasonable measurement yardstick sofar- the least as per the present stock price at the end of 2011 of somewhere around 2$.

Cytori- its Board Members-past and present

First- some historical development-

Untill 2007 Cytori´s Board of Directors was more of an "good ol boys" club, although by SEC rules considered " pre-dominantly independent". The father-in-law of CEO Calhoun and Chairman of the Board, Marshall Cox "retired" in that year, meaning that the stock awards for BOD members could finally also be reduced to a "normal" level as happened with Management a few years earlier. In 2007 Ron Henriksen took over as Chairman, who is also founder, chairman and president of EndGenitor- a stem cell outfit.

Cytori- its Partners-past and present-Olympus

Partner Olympus, as a Company, has major issues to resolve after the accounting cover-up scandal emerged. Dont want to comment that here, but you can read all about Woodford, Kikukawa and tobashi in the Wikipedia article- Link here

According to Cytori management this scandal doesnt affect the relationship between Cytori and Olympus at all, which could be partially true, but new strategic developments will hardly be possible, since Olympus probably is like a ship after a fire in the machineroom, after which navigation, power supply etc etc is all non functioning. As we speak- late 2012- CEO Sasa has taken over and the BOD is newly installed. In some aspects the Olympus-Cytori relationship seems to be drawing to an end, but certainly not all. Time will tell.

Introduction to Cytori-The Company

Cytori´s Company slogan is: "Restoring Lives" - thereto its logo displays the slogan, which has been a few years longer around: "Where infinite possibilities meet"

Both logo and slogan are really to my liking and I feel will be proven to become reality someday on a large- i.e. global scale. In  this section of the CYTX-Investor.com page all aspects of Cytori as a Nasdaq listed outfit will be highlighted. We will be reviewing its history, which sofar hasnt been totally without some severe mistakes and dis-appointments , but the technology remains extremely promising and that is the key for this Company. If there is something missing, please let me know.
