About Aspertec
Aspertec 325 mg is an FDA-approved aspirin product being developed to provide high-risk cardiovascular and stroke patients with more reliable and predictable antiplatelet efficacy as compared to enteric-coated aspirin, while also reducing the adverse gastric events common in an acute setting. PLx is focused on completing manufacturing scale-up and label finalization for Aspertec 325 mg aspirin dosage form and preparing an sNDA for Aspertec 81 mg maintenance dose form.

About PLx Pharma Inc.
PLx Pharma Inc. is a late-stage specialty pharmaceutical company focused on developing its clinically validated and patent-protected PLxGuard™ delivery system to provide safe and effective aspirin products. The PLxGuard delivery system works by targeting delivery of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) to various portions of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. PLx believes this has the potential to improve the absorption of many drugs currently on the market or in development, and to reduce acute GI side effects—including erosions, ulcers and bleeding—associated with aspirin and ibuprofen, and potentially other drugs.

About Sidoti & Company

Sidoti & Company, LLC is Wall Street’s preeminent provider of equity research generally focused on companies with market capitalizations of under $3 billion. We cover over 250 companies across a range of industries. The companies covered by our traditional research typically have a history of profitability, maintain strong balance sheets, and tend to have limited, if any, coverage by other Wall Street firms.

Our approach affords institutional investor clients a combination of high-quality research, a small- and micro-cap company focused nationwide sales effort, broad access to corporate management teams, and extensive trading support. We serve nearly 500 institutional clients in the U.S., Canada and the U.K., including many leading managers of portfolios with $200 million to $2 billion of assets. We believe that these asset managers are generally underserved by other larger brokerage firms that typically target larger managers.

Sidoti also hosts a fee-based biannual conference in New York, and is a provider of company sponsored research.

We are a broker-dealer registered with the SEC and a FINRA member firm. We provide a broad range of securities-related services. In addition to our high-quality research, our sales and trading services are distinguished by prompt execution, a competitive commission structure and access to smart order routing that utilizes all available sources of liquidity. From time to time, we are invited to participate as an underwriter, dealer, placement agent or initial purchaser in securities offerings for issuers for which we provide research coverage. Given our knowledge of the companies we cover, we believe that we are able to contribute to these capital-raising transactions. We also assist our issuers with stock repurchase programs, block trades and organized (Rule 10b5-1) trading plans.
