Foley Partner Paul Broude authored an article titled “The IPO Window Is Opening” in the March 2010 issue of MX: Medtech Executive. Broude examines the reasons for a device company to consider an initial public offering for its growth plans, stating that 2010 may bring the promise of IPOs for medical device companies to fund clinical trials, regulatory approvals, and the protection of the company’s intellectual property. He adds that going public enables some medical device and life science companies to continue growing while creating an exit vehicle for management and other shareholders.
