If Life ends up eating Illuminas lunch that makes the acquisition of Ion Torrent a really good deal. But of course there is no guarantee for that. So what does the likelihood of that happening need to be for the deal to have positive expected value? Based on these numbers more than 12.5%.
i only saw a press release for the first milestone payment. Did IT actually meet the milestones for the whole 700 million?
