Dear Ben,

nice to hear from you again.

» interesting observation. Thanks for pointing this out.

You are welcome.

» Maybe I missed it but I don't see this statement explicitly. Can you point me to the direction?

You are correct that there is no statement explicitly. The wording of the whole paragraph is not that clear understandable, to say it politely.
Maybe I read to much into it. But the example "if power for Cmax is 0.90, and for AUC 0.95, the resulting overall study power is at least 0.9 + 0.95 - 1 = 0.85" smells for me in that direction.

Regards,

Detlew
