Germany: Complimentary Munich And Berlin Seminars: Financing Opportunities For Technology And Life Sciences-Based Companies
Last Updated: 20 October 2016

Morrison & Foerster and Raymond James invite you to join us for a discussion on Financing Opportunities for Technology and Life Sciences-Based Companies in Munich and Berlin.

The U.S. capital markets remain an attractive source of capital for emerging companies in the technology and biotech sectors. Late stage (or mezzanine) private placements made principally to U.S. institutional investors have raised in excess of $44.9 billion for privately held companies in 2015. Although the U.S. IPO market has become more selective, there has been continued investor interest in offerings by non-U.S. domiciled issuers. In 2015, 27% of the IPO issuers on a U.S exchange were non-U.S. issuers.

A U.S. securities exchange listing provides a currency for issuers to use in connection with future acquisitions and stock-based compensation awards, and provides enhanced liquidity for existing holders. Finally, as a U.S.-listed issuer, a company will have many more financing choices available to it in the future.

We will discuss:

  • European view of the markets for High Tech companies;
  • U.S. markets for capital raising;
  • Current market conditions;
  • Financing alternatives for pre-IPO companies;
  • The late-stage (or "cross-over") private placement market;
  • The ReIPO" for companies listed on a European securities exchange that may not provide the desired liquidity;
  • American Depositary Receipts, or ADRs; and
  • Planning a U.S. IPO or a dual listing.

We look forward to an interesting event and inspiring discussions.
