Alien Resurrection: The Post that Wouldn't Die

Justin Hibbard

My esteemed right-coast colleague is half right. Indeed, Alien could get bought out of registration. Filing an S-1 is an au courant way of setting the price in an M&A deal, as we've written before. But barring an acquisition, I still think Alien could not only get an IPO done but also see a significant rise in its share price afterward. Tim may be underestimating the current appetite of institutional investors for new kinds of tech plays, particularly RFID (and for that matter, Vonage's voice-over-Internet-protocol technology). I'm not saying these investors are right--I'm saying enough demand is out there to build a book for Alien.
