Is Amgen Looking to Acquire MannKind

Tony Hooper, who spent 7 years at Amgen as the executive vice president of Global Commercial Operations, was just added to Mannkind's Board of Directors. Yes, he isn't at Amgen anymore but these types of placements happen all the time on company's boards.

“Tony will be a terrific addition to our board of directors,” said Kent Kresa, Chairman of the Board of MannKind Corporation. “His commercial operations experience and his deep knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry will be invaluable to MannKind as we look to grow our company for the future.”

It wouldn't shock me if this is the first step in their due dilligence.

Hooper will be great for the commercial organization.

Nice take on this for the MNKD StockTwits board -

mike had such experience. They have followed best practices, and this is where they are. Nothing wrong with the resume of hooper, but thinking his addition will change the story is setting up for disappointment.

I would bet money this is part of the plan. Plus someone needs to hold Mike accountable.
