Still haven’t seen any concrete news on Biofrontera. If we do see anything we will add it to the updates this evening or tomorrow.

That’s all from me, have a good evening all!

Biofrontera Stock

Biofrontera Stock has more than quadrupled in price from $5.60 to where it is now trading at $29.10, over 400% higher.

It had reached as high as $55 per share!

Now, we’ve done some digging and honestly haven’t been able to come up with much of a reason why other than they have filed an SEC form 6-k that foreign private issuers of securities are required to submit.

The purpose of this form is that it is used to relieve the burden of dual reporting for certain non-issuers.

However, I’m not so sure that is the reason for the enormous move, If I found out any more information I will be sure to update you all!
