Brinson Patrick Securities Develops Life Sciences Advisory Board

- Brinson Patrick expands focus on life sciences companies by appointing Gregory Hanson and Jack Florio to join Vivian Liu as advisors -

NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Brinson Patrick Securities, a boutique investment bank that focuses specifically on at-the-market (ATM) offerings, today announced that Gregory Hanson and Jack Florio have been appointed as advisors and will join its current advisor, Vivian Liu, in the development of a life sciences advisory board. The advisory board will provide Brinson Patrick's management team with additional perspective and understanding of the financial needs of the emerging life sciences community and will help Brinson Patrick to expand its offerings in this important industry sector. All three have many years of experience helping life sciences companies raise capital.

"The operational experience of our newly developed life sciences advisory board will complement our focus and commitment to the continued expansion of our ATM offering for the life sciences industry," commented Todd Wyche, founder and managing director of Brinson Patrick. "Vivian, Greg and Jack have held significant operational roles with various life sciences companies, and all three have a deep understanding of the benefit of ATMs. Their advice will be invaluable in helping us to offer an important financing option to life sciences CFOs."

Mr. Hanson is currently managing director of First Cornerstone, a board, management and financial advisory service for both private and public companies located in San Diego. He has over 35 years of experience in both the public and private sectors and currently serves as an advisory board member and acting CFO of a private company. Before being employed at his current position, Mr. Hanson has served as the CFO of Avanir Pharmaceuticals, Adventrix Pharmaceuticals, XXsys Technologies and Onsite Energy.

Jack Florio is currently the chief business officer at Swarmology, a company focused on empowering patients, companies and payors to improve the quality and cost of healthcare by enabling them to harness the power of social media. Prior to joining Brinson Patrick's life sciences advisory board, Mr. Florio served as Brinson Patrick's senior vice president in its San Diego office. Before joining Brinson Patrick in 2008, he spent eight years in the life sciences and biotech industry in various management roles and as an angel investor. He has worked in the life sciences industry since 1973 with a 30 year career with Eli Lilly and Company.

Ms. Liu has served as advisor to Brinson Patrick since February of this year. She is currently president and chief executive officer of FastTrack Pharmaceuticals. Prior to that, she served as president, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of NexMed.

Brinson Patrick has recently announced the increased use of ATM offerings by life sciences companies compared to previous years. ATM offerings provide an efficient means of raising equity capital over time, making them ideal for raising general working capital, funding specific projects, funding research and development and paying off debt. ATM offerings provide flexibility, efficiency, control, discretion and just-in-time capital with minimal dilution of stock when managed by an experienced ATM underwriter. With an ATM, an exchange-listed company incrementally sells newly issued shares into the trading market through a designated broker-dealer at prevailing market prices, rather than via a traditional underwritten offering of a fixed number of shares at a fixed price all at once. ATMs enable publicly-traded companies to tap into the existing secondary market for shares on an as-needed basis.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second.

Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
