Cadence Pharmaceuticals: From Startup to Billion Dollar Exit

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.

PRIVATE EQUITY:  Another Arrow in the Service Provider Quiver

A moderated panel discussion that includes the full spectrum of private equity types—from mid-market control, to lower mid-market mezzanine.

Come prepared to learn about local private equity resources and how private equity can potentially enhance your client relationships. Key discussion topics include:

  • What business objectives align with the various private equity types?
  • What do the various types of private equity firms look for when they invest?
  • How can bringing private equity to the table benefit a service provider’s business?

  • How do you introduce potential opportunities to private equity investors?


• Craig Dupper, Solis Capital
• Brian Kinsman, Bunker Hill Capital
• Gerik Degner, Alpine Pacific Capital 
• Lou Caballero, Bison Capital 
• Nick Lopez, Huntington Capital


Following the interactive panel discussion, there will be a user-pay opportunity to tee it up with the capital providers at a course to be determined, including greens fees and lunch. Limited to the first fifteen to confirm their reservation.
