Partner Gabor Garai was quoted in an article that appeared in the Boston Globe on May 10, 2013 titled, “Markets draw life science start-ups.” The article discussed how rebounding financial markets are attracting an increasing number of life sciences start-ups looking to raise large amounts of money through IPOs — resulting in the anticipated biggest coming-out class for life sciences since 2007. The article highlighted the risks to going public, but noted that public offerings are emerging as the financing event of choice for start-ups that do not want to give up too much control to private investors or larger industry players. Mr. Garai was quoted as saying, “When it comes to drugs, the cost of getting anything to market has become inordinate. Right now, there’s more money in the public markets chasing deals than in the venture capital markets. We’re seeing the first signs of spring after a cold winter for IPOs.”
