Pat, at the risk of engaging in a circular argument over semantics (which you are already doing, badly):
First, where did you get that supposed quote about ICX’s “strategy”? I’m not doubting they said something to this effect, but it just doesn’t seem like a direct quote.
Just because they haven’t yet released this particular information, doesn’t mean they have violated the doctrine of keeping investors and others (what others?) informed.
After the collection of any data in clinical trials, a certain amount of time is necessary to analyze and interpret the data, and put it into a coherent report form, and to actually write and publish the reports. This may take anywhere from several weeks to several months.
Just because people in the public (like you) are impatient and want to see the results right away, does not mean that they have violated any promises or breached any deadlines. You are looking at this from a completely SUBJECTIVE point of view: your own.
You said “if there are no information at the moment”. This is ENTIRELY WRONG. There IS information; you just don’t see it.
You’re engaging in the logical fallacy of thinking that what cannot be seen with your eyes, does not exist!
Think of it this way. Let’s say you are going on a three-week holiday to Nepal. Before leaving, you tell your family, “I will keep in touch with you so you know I’m safe.”
When you get to Nepal, you first take a ride from the airport to the hotel. You check into the hotel. You have a meal. You wash up and go to bed because you have jet-lag. You wake up in the morning and inquire about mountain tours. You have breakfast. You go into town. You shop for souvenirs. You take some photos of Katmandu. You take a ride into the mountains. You speak to a mountain guide. You go hiking in the mountains. You have lunch. You talk to some locals. You take a ride back to your hotel.
You spend 4-5 days doing things like this, which are entirely NORMAL for a tourist traveling in Nepal. Then, after 6 days traveling and sightseeing in Nepal, you finally go to a cyber-cafe and email your friends and family and inform them of your progress.
Note that you HAVE NOT VIOLATED your promise to your friends and family to keep them informed. You just had “more important stuff to do”, like seeing Nepal, before you contacted them.
Maybe from the friends’ and family’s point of view, for 6 days, you were violating your “promise”, and they became very concerned, and maybe even angry, that you weren’t in touch with them. But that’s from their entirely SUBJECTIVE point of view!
Since it was you, not they, who made the original promise, we have to look at the “four corners” of your original promise, not other people’s interpretation of it, to determine whether it’s being kept.
ICX said it would keep investors and the public informed of their results. It didn’t say they would keep everyone informed IMMEDIATELY upon collecting the data!
