Biotechnology Valuation: An Introductory Guide

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This book is in very good condition. The dust jacket is lovely and clean with only a few small dents to the top of the back over. And all the internal pages are clean and crisp.

The first book to provide a simple and practical means of valuing biotech companies. It begins with a short history of the biotechnology industry; this is important as although it is about 30 years old, the first company went public only in 1996, so it is possible to plot the course of investment waves and dips. It also examines the European industry and its evolvement, and draws parallels between the similarities and differences between that and the US. Finally this book looks at the various companies which make up the biotech industry (therapeutic; life sciences; and the medical technology company) and gives tools for the investor to properly evaluate them.

Praise for Biotechnology Valuation
"Keegan states that the valuation of Biotech companies is as much an art as a science. This brief but comprehensive review of the skills and knowledge required, not of just the financial market and sentiment, but also of the technical attributes of a company and the drug development and regulatory hurdles that must be overcome, highlights the importance of the breadth of understanding required. Biotech investing is not for the timid, but it can bring substantial returns. Keegan′s book, punctuated with his personal experience and opinions, is a good place to start."
―Chris Blackwell, Chief Executive, Vectura Group plc

"A user–friendly, yet thorough discussion of a notoriously difficult topic. Dr Keegan′s book is a fine resource for both business types and academicians."
―Steve Winokur, Managing Director, CanaccordAdams

"A highly readable and comprehensive explanation of the technical and commercial parameters that influence biotechnology companies at all stages of development, providing clear context for selection from the toolkit of valuation methodologies the author recommends to assess company and product performance, or ascribe value."
―Dr L.M. Allan, Director, Bioscience Enterprise Programme, University of Cambridge

"A fabulous approach to a difficult topic."
