Transaction Summary

  • Essex Woodlands is backing Bryan Morton, the former CEO of EUSA Pharma, in a proprietary deal to acquire several key assets of his old company to serve as a platform for a buy-and-build strategy. Bryan Morton followed a similar strategy at EUSA Pharma, a successful Fund VII growth equity deal.
  • We seek to transform the company into a fast growing trans-Atlantic specialty pharmaceutical company through acquiring and in-licensing products and companies with European revenue to leverage the current European infrastructure, as well as acquiring and in-licensing EU and US rights to specialty products that are in late-stage clinical trials and could be launched within three years to accelerate revenue growth.
  • Essex Woodlands made its first investment in EUSA Pharma (II) in 2015.
