Today's Pre-Open Stock Moves:

Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG) 76.7% HIGHER; announced that it has reached an agreement with Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) to utilize Plug Power fuel cells and hydrogen technology in its fulfillment network. At select fulfillment center locations, Amazon will begin powering its industrial equipment such as forklifts using the GenKey technology which will enable faster charging times, reduced costs, and support energy-efficiency in Amazons fulfillment operations. Revenues associated with the commercial agreements are expected to be around $70 million in 2017.

Unilife Corp. (NASDAQ: UNIS) 62% LOWER; received notice from a key customer for wearable injectors that such customer is putting a program with the Company on hold for reasons unrelated to the Company’s products. Given the relative importance of such program, such delay may negatively impact the Company’s ability to obtain financing or the amount of financing the Company may be able to obtain. The Company issued a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act notice (the “Notice”) to all employees of the Company and state and local government agencies, that if the Company is not successful in obtaining financing, the Company will be forced to permanently close both its York, Pennsylvania and King of Prussia, Pennsylvania facilities.

The initial cash consideration of $1.75 represents a premium of approximately 120 percent to the closing price per Innocoll Share on March 10, 2017, the last dealing day prior to the date on which the anomalous movement in Innocolls shares commenced (and a premium of approximately 28 percent to the closing price per Innocoll Share on March 15, 2017, the day prior to Innocoll initiating the commencement of the offer period).
