相关文章内容摘要

以制造增强免疫力专利药品 COLD-FX 著名的生物制药公司(CV Technologies),最近被投资者告入法院。接受投资者委托,已有两家律师事务所入禀法院,控告生物制药公司及其华裔执行长单婕更改财务报告,误导投资者。 ... [ 查看全文 ]

这回单婕博士恐怕有麻烦了。

单的CV Technologies是92年成立的,苦苦奋斗了十几年,到2006年中期的时候可以说达到了顶峰。该公司的主要产品Cold-Fx不但在加拿大销售稳健,而且也通过了美国FDA批准,可以在美国作为非处方药品来出售。作为加拿大的小型医药公司(2005年有员工40名),凭借良好口碑,同类药品销售第一的产品,美国市场的准入证,2005年TSX创业版最佳公司的光环,以及同年3000余万的销售收入,CV Technologies的股票一度升到4.7加币,市值峰值超过4亿!

然而市场风云变幻,刚刚打开的美国市场表现不佳,加上CV Technologies的2006年年终财务报表过高计算了利润,需要修改,所以CV Technologie的股票被从07年四月停牌,直到三个月后的七月才被有被批准恢复交易。然而目前的股票价格已经大不如前,勉强徘徊在1加币左右。所以才有了接之而来1亿加元的诉讼。

那么CV Technologies到底误报在什么地方?误报了多少呢?就目前的资料来看,误报是将2006年美国市场的盈利全部算作营业收入而引起的。问题在于,美国市场对于该公司是新市场,而新市场的获利金额是要考虑退货因素的。也就是说,只有在售出产品的退货期满之后,才可以最终确定获利金额。而CV Technologies将同期的美国市场的盈利直接算作营业收入了。据CV Technologies后来的报告,这个因素使得该公司多报了350万的纯收入!

比照该公司2005历史最高盈利纪录1000万,350万相当于公司峰值利润的30%多。

对单婕博士本人我是非常钦佩的,据报道,她15岁考上上海医大,拥有中国和加拿大两个博士头衔,辛苦劳作了十几年将公司渐渐做大,正在前途光明的时候却横生波折,深陷官司,真是世事难料啊。

本人无意评价单婕博士本人这整件事情里的责任,目前也为时太早,但是愿意继续关注事情进展。

华人在加拿大开辟自己的事业很不容易,尤其是做到一定的规模以后,风险就更大,希望CV Technologies这次是技术失误,那样应该还有机会从头再来。

CV Technologies 是92年成立的,十二年后的2004年实现盈利,当年的利润额是区区15万,而仅仅一年后的2005年,CV Technologies的利润就增长了67倍,到了1000万!而当时的人们谁又会想到这个创造了奇迹的仅有40人的小公司,在仅仅一年多之后就陷入困境了呢?

付出了十二年的不懈努力后才看到的胜利曙光在一年之间就暗淡下去了,怎么能不让人惋惜呢?

经验不足?

很多上市公司都浑水摸鱼。

上面的中文访谈的最后5,6分钟是很值得一听的。单博士谈到了自己的家庭,子女和初来加拿大时语言不过关的窘迫。很难将这样一个看似柔弱的女人与她十几年来所克服的困难以及付出的艰辛联系起来。单博士很不简单啊。

一定要诚实!否则终究会受到惩罚。

代价是很大的。

无论是从科技含量,公司成长速度还是公司规模来讲,单博士曾经取得的成功在大陆第一代移民里都是非常罕见的。

2005年,加拿大中华商会主办的杰出华商评选活动里,她是当年八位获奖人之一,比较之下,其他七位很难说是和她在同样水准上的。2006年的获奖者也和2005年的其他七位情况相似,没有很大的改观。

下面是2005年名单:

李贵鲜-华盛超市总裁
石家喜-加拿大特达公司总裁(为华人超市及主流社会各超市供货)
袁庆荣-加拿大华伦贸易公司总裁(有鞋王之称的劳保鞋专业户)
吴滨江-安河中医学院院长
杨钧--宏盛理财公司总裁
李江南--加拿大皇家天然品有限公司战略营销高级副总裁
孙善勤--新概念培训学院院长(Maria)

2006年名单:

2006杰出华商8位获奖者分别是:马开廉创业精神奖、庞海福效益提高奖、蒋志成新生意奖 、董国庆创新奖、 胡性刚国际经贸奖、肖成振优质奖 、陆炳雄社会影响奖、徐芳玲2006华商风云人物奖。

徐芳玲-麦唐纳地产集团公司(Macdonald Realty Ltd.)总裁
马开廉-加拿大华洪食品有限公司、福特实业贸易有限公司董事长庞海福-环球地产集团合伙人
蒋志成-理财顾问
董国庆-最佳中医诊所

Bio Business 的报道很有意思:

“I was always curious: ‘What is in these medicines?’ The herbalists couldn’t explain it—they could tell you what herbs are in there, but they couldn’t tell you how it actually worked. The lack of scientific research and documentation for herbal medicines means that they could never be accepted in today’s medical world. That bothered me,” says Shan, adding she also wanted to look at medicines from a prevention point of view. “We have made huge strides in modern medicine and have created many drugs. But somehow we have been focused on the curative and not the preventive side of drugs.”

Armed with a PhD in pharmacology from China (and still tackling the English language), Shan moved to Edmonton in 1987 to pursue doctorate studies in physiology at the University of Alberta. “Pharmacology is how drugs work, and physiology is about how the body works. I saw that if I had the knowledge of both how drugs and the body function, then I could get into some uncharted areas with herbal medicines, using a pharmacological research approach,” she continues.   
It was at U of A that she met co-founder Dr. Peter Pang, and together in 1992, they spun out CVT. The company, which quickly grew to include a group of 25 scientists in different disciplines (including phytochemists and pharmacologists), aimed to find safe and effective natural (evidence-based) remedies for cardiovascular problems (hence the company’s name: ‘CV’), among others areas.



...

In May 2003, CVT was about to lose its offices and in the process of laying off staff, she says. Weaned on government grants and private investors, the company had hoped to one day sell its IP to big pharma. Such a venture, however, was usually deemed too risky because CVT did not fit the traditional therapeutic model, adds Shan.

Though she had always wanted to keep her focus on the science and applied research, Shan reluctantly took over as CEO that year. She immediately put any available money on ColdfX, opting to commercialize independently, and hiring public relations and advertising experts to develop an official marketing strategy—and ultimately boost sales.   

The approach re-examined the company’s past word-of-mouth success among hockey players and athletes who used the product, and leveraged their testimonials in the media. In 2004, CVT signed celebrity spokesperson Don Cherry, a frequent cold sufferer who reportedly found relief using the product. The ad campaign that followed helped kick things into high gear. [CVT agreed to direct a percentage of future earnings to Rose Cherry’s Home for Kids, a charity founded by Cherry for his late wife .]

Among other milestones, 2004 marked the first year ColdfX was carried by national retailers (more than 4,000 of them, including Shoppers Drug Mart and Wal-Mart)—the brand was formerly only available in smaller, often independent retail outlets and pharmacies. It was also the first profitable year in the company’s history.

刚刚有看了一下CV Technologies2007财年头两个季度的报表,情况似乎比2006年要糟糕一些。

I know who she is and what's going on regarding her business. I wish she will be ok as well.

However, given her products, I don't think she will succeed in the future.
