About the strategic nature of WHEN to release news. The Venture is probably a little bit easier to deal with in terms of compliance with disclosure rules etc. But it would be easy to quantify the witholding of news on the grounds of having to be absolutely 100 percent certain that the Milestones have indeed been met. There are too many clever people associated with the company now...even the Growth Point folks probably offered some advice on when and how to strategically distribute the news in a way that will gain the maximum impact on SP. I would imagine, that there is also a target price OPL would like to achieve before they allow or invite parternships, licensees or total buy-outs.
