Tapping into Abingworth’s pioneering clinical co-development model, the private equity behemoth is using that experience to form Launch Therapeutics which will seek to partner with biotech and biopharma on "best‐in‐class, late‐stage clinical assets [and] bring life‐saving therapies to market better, faster and cheaper."
Private Company Edition: New capital for health care and life science innovations include a fund for royalty deals, additional anti-infective funding, early-stage money and public health-focused cash. Also, Day One reveals a $130m series B venture round and Notch closes an $85m series A round.
Public Company Edition: Merging with a special purpose acquisition corporation may be an attractive alternative to an initial public offering, but February’s vigorous IPO pace includes seven recent offerings that raised $480.8m in the US. Also, Cassava raised $200m and KalVista brought in $222.5m.
