$CBBT For those who are questioning the patent application(s), remember that a patent application is unpublished and held in secret for 18 months following the earliest filing date. This is a benefit for the patent holder so that competitors cannot immediately start knocking off the applicant (the patent review process can be long). The inventor has some living and abandoned patents but those may not be the patents in question here. Unfortunately, we just DONT KNOW if there is a patent application or not. I would not place any significant valuation on a business based on a patent application anyway. A patent application could be narrowed or even abandoned later on. The value here is with the acquisition and anyone questioning the patent or lack of SEC filings is just trying to shake you out of your shares.
