This report includes general domestic middle market M&A activity and commentary, as well as details of reported M&A transactions from the San Diego area.
Join ACG San Diego for breakfast as we hear from Ted Schroeder, former CEO and co-founder of local biopharmaceutical success story Cadence Pharmaceuticals. Ted will share the Cadence story, from its humble 2004 founding and initial funding led by Domain Associates, through the successful product in-licensing from Bristol Meyers Squibb, FDA approval, many rounds of private capital investment, an initial public offering and Nasdaq listing, and its recent $1.4 billion sale to Mallinckrodt plc. The Cadence story has something for everyone – start-ups, raising capital from VCs, pharmaceutical product in-licensing, IPOs, navigating the FDA approval process, managing a salesforce, and selling a company – so don’t miss it.
