"This decision was reached after careful consideration of capital market alternatives and an analysis of the electronic market model, which provides increased visibility and liquidity to our investors," said Stephen M.

"We wish to thank The American Stock Exchange as well as our specialist on AMEX, Cohen Specialists, for the years of support and orderly trading."
"We believe that NASDAQ's electronic multiple market maker structure will provide BioSante with enhanced exposure and liquidity, while at the same time provide investors with the fastest execution and lowest cost per trade," said Phillip Donenberg, BioSante's chief financial officer.
