Kellen VanCamp's insight:

A growing issue is wether horses are considered livestock or pets. There is a thin line between livestock and pets, however if the horses are considered to be livestock that allows them to be slaughtered, and people are un sure if this is ethical or not.

Kellen VanCamp's insight:

Scinetist Tony Kolton is working thorough biotechnology to use pancreatic cells as a possible cure for diabetes. Kolton used a media formula to grow pancreatic cells. In the future it is believed that pancreatic cells will be able to create their own insulin using other cells.  If this is possible we are on our way to a big discovery.

Ethanol Producer Magazine – The Latest News and Data About Ethanol Production | ALS Animals | Scoop.it

Verenium Corp., a leading industrial biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of high-performance enzymes, has announced it has entered into a definitive merger agreement with BASF Corp., a leading chemicals company, under which BASF will commence a cash tender offer for all of the outstanding shares of Verenium's common stock.  This agreement has been unanimously approved by both Verenium's and BASF's Boards of Directors.

Under the terms of the merger agreement, holders of outstanding shares of Verenium's common stock will receive $4.00 per share, representing a 56 percent premium to the volume weighted average closing price of Verenium's common stock in the six months prior to announcement of the transaction.  Each of the directors and officers of Verenium has entered into tender and support agreements pursuant to which they have agreed to tender all of their shares.

The acquisition is an all-cash tender offer for all outstanding shares of Verenium common stock to be followed by a back-end merger.  The tender offer is subject to standard closing conditions, including the acquisition of a majority of the shares outstanding including shares underlying options and warrants for which notices of exercise are received prior to the expiration of the tender offer for which shares have not yet been issued. The tender offer is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2013.

BASF is the world's leading chemical company and its portfolio ranges from chemicals, plastics, performance products and crop protection products to oil and gas. BASF had sales of €72.1 billion in 2012 and more than 110,000 employees as of the end of 2012. BASF shares are traded on the stock exchanges in Frankfurt, London and Zurich.

UBS Investment Bank served as financial advisor and Cooley LLP served as legal advisor to Verenium.

Kellen VanCamp's insight:

Verenium corporation is a ethanol production company, and the stock prices for it are growing very quickly.  You can sell your share in the company and make money. in 2008 the verenium stock was at an all time low, but it has recently recovered to over the pre crisis prices. Now is a good time to sell your stock share and make a good profit.  Although, ethanol gas is a unique product manufactured by enzymes, so staying in the stock business even longer might pay off.
