Guidance for the Life Science Entrepreneur Looking for Strategic Investments in Their Business: Perfect Your Pitch

Posted August 16, 2018 by OCP | Post a Comment

This past week, David H. Crean, PhD, Managing Director and head of our Life Sciences and Healthcare Practice Group, spent time reviewing the >400 life science opportunities that were presented to him and our investment banking firm in 2017 in which entrepreneurs and business owners were looking for either capital financing, sell-side M&A, strategic advisory services or partnering/ licensing. Nearly invariably, each investment pitch lacked the complete and necessary material to tell the comprehensive story that would be compelling for an investor to write a check. These entrepreneurs are very smart and passionate about their mission but need to recognize and think like investors or strategic buyers. Investors see and hear many investment opportunities and you need to be differentiated and stand out from the masses.

How To Look Beyond the Obvious Acquirer for Your Business

Posted July 19, 2018 by OCP | Post a Comment

A wise advisor once said, “Obvious buyers are obvious”. This truism serves as a recommendation to sellers to seek beyond the obvious buyers when constructing a list of potential acquirers

Obvious buyers typically identified include a mix of direct competitors and the large players that dominate the sector. Many investment banks often provide sellers with a list of the 25 or so obvious buyers, resulting in the seller feeling a false sense of comfort because all the names of the potential acquirers that they are familiar with are on the list. And, while many of these companies may represent high-fit potential acquirers, the seller is missing out on engaging with a large number of less obvious, high-fit potential acquirers. These acquirers have a strong strategic rationale to acquire and a resulting high willingness to pay a premium purchase price.

How Family Offices Should Approach Investment in the Life Sciences and Healthcare Industry

Posted June 14, 2018 by OCP | Post a Comment

The fundraising landscape for healthcare and life science companies has changed dramatically over the past several years. Entrepreneurs and business owners in these industries need to look toward emerging categories of investors to provide the funding that was historically serviced by venture capital firms (VC’s). Corporate venture funds, angels and angel networks, government agencies, and foundations are all actively investing in these sectors and represent newer, non-traditional avenues for raising capital. However, the latest growing trend is the participation of family offices.

OCP Is Leading Growth in the San Diego Life Science Community

Posted June 04, 2018 by OCP | Post a Comment

"Working with life science companies is not like serving other industries. There are myriad legal and financial eccentricities - accounting for multiple financing sources makes accounting especially complex, for instances and protecting intellectual property is key. Early-stage companies may need their hand held as they focus on the science and outsource everything else." San Diego Business Journal

The Difference Between Strategic & Financial Acquirers

Posted June 01, 2018 by OCP | Post a Comment

When owners decide to sell their company, one of the first things they consider is building a list of high-fit potential acquirers for the business. With private equity (financial) acquirers becoming so abundant in the last 10 years (over 2,500 in North America), the list of potential acquirers to approach in the sale process is likely to consist of both strategic and financial acquirers.
