Description of Business
Since we were incorporated in Delaware on December 28, 1995, SIGA has pursued the research, development and commercialization of novel products for the prevention and treatment of serious infectious diseases, including products for use in defense against biological warfare agents such as smallpox and Arenaviruses. Our lead product, ST-246�, is an orally administered antiviral drug that targets orthopox viruses. In December 2006 the FDA granted Orphan Drug designation to ST-246� for the prevention and treatment of smallpox. In May 2009, we submitted a response to a Request for Proposal (�RFP�) issued by BARDA with respect to the purchase of 1.7 million courses of a smallpox antiviral (the �BARDA Smallpox RFP�), and, in June 2009, BARDA informed us that our response to the BARDA Smallpox RFP was deemed technically acceptable and in the competitive range. There can be no assurance that SIGA or any other company will receive an award pursuant to this RFP.
