GOING DOWN

Shares in Phosphagenics (ASX:POH) have taken a significant hit this morning, falling 92 per cent to an intraday low of 0.2c, after it lost a court case against big pharma company Mylan.

It told investors it was unsuccessful in all of its claims in the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC), after spending over $5 million in court costs.

0.2c is an all-time low, which is nothing to be sniffed at for a company that has been listed for 25 years. More than 115 million shares have traded hands in the sell-off.
