Latest From Sense Proteomic Ltd.
Astex Technology's takeover of Schering AG spin-out metaGen Pharmaceuticals provides the Cambridge-based firm with more cash, a stronger relationship with a pharmaceutical partner, complementary technology assets, and, potentially, an improved preclinical pipeline. MetaGen investors inch closer to an exit by trading stakes in an early-stage, unfloatable company for a piece of a more mature, well-funded firm several steps closer to an IPO.
The combination of Dutch firm Kiadis and Germany's Biofrontera, a technological fit, now needs to score with investors and provide the proposed new firm with enough cash to survive the biotech drought.
Procognia's acquisition of fellow Apax portfolio company Sense Proteomic could indicate a more proactive stance from VCs intent on consolidating their bets behind likely winners.
