Device Valuations: Private Profits, Public Losses

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Recent medical device IPOs have fallen in value an average of 14%; but even at their current low valuations, returns to private investors remain healthy. For this reason, it is likely that new IPOs will be priced far closer to the valuations of the last private rounds than they were in the IPOs of 1996-97. This Start-Up analysis also reveals that, contrary to conventional industry wisdom, companies who went public with earlier stage products have generated higher returns to both private and public investors.
