SRS Expands into Life Sciences

Apr 21, 2011

SRS Expands into Life Sciences April 21, 2011 By PEHub Administrator Shareholder Representative Services, a four-year-old, San Francisco-based service provider that represents shareholders in the post-closing period after a company has been acquired, has expanded into life sciences. Leading the practices is Don Morrissey, who in the past has served as senior vice president of corporate development at Replidyne and VP of legal affairs and business development at Caliper Life Sciences. Morrissey was also previously an attorney at Cooley LLP. PRESS RELEASE: SAN FRANCISCO, CA (April 21, 2011) – SRS | Shareholder Representative Services today announced that industry veteran Don Morrissey has joined the company to lead its life sciences practice SRS’ life sciences practice focuses on maximizing returns for sellers in their M&A exits. In the majority of these deals, a significant portion of the total consideration — sometimes hundreds of millions of dollars — is subject to the achievement of specific milestones, including regulatory approval and sales objectives. For this reason, overall deal value is highly influenced by post-closing management and the ability to negotiate disputes. Furthermore, earnout periods can last years, requiring the attention and expertise of the shareholder representative long after the deal closes. SRS has served as shareholder representative on numerous life sciences deals, including the recent acquisitions of Plexxikon by Daiichi Sankyo and Calistoga Pharmaceuticals by Gilead Sciences. Selling shareholders recognize that SRS offers the institutional knowledge, relationship management, and expertise necessary to ensure that their interests are fully represented after closing. “The post-closing period after the sale of a life sciences company is often complex, because determining whether progress toward the achievement of milestones is adequate can be subject to interpretation,”  said Paul Koenig, Managing Director of SRS. “Questions surrounding whether milestones are on track and if not, why not, can lead to disputes and sometimes even litigation. Engaging an expert to manage this process is critical because there is so much at stake. ” Don Morrissey has joined the firm as an executive director and head of the life sciences practice. Morrissey brings over 15 years of leadership experience in the life sciences sector, including serving as SVP of Corporate Development and General Counsel at Replidyne and VP of Legal Affairs and Business Development at Caliper Life Sciences. He began his career as an attorney at Cooley LLP. “Life science company executives and investors have long known how important it is to actively manage their alliances with larger partners to keep development projects prioritized and progressing,”  said Morrissey. “Now, the most promising projects often continue under structured acquisition arrangements rather than corporate partnering deals. But the imperative to engage the partner, quarter after quarter, year after year, doesn’t go away just because the management team does. That’s where SRS can help.” About SRS SRS | Shareholder Representative Services is the leading global expert in professionally managing the post-closing process to safeguard the selling shareholders’ interests in private company M&A transactions. As the shareholder representative, SRS manages all post-closing matters, including working capital and other purchase price adjustments, tax reviews, the handling of claims, disputes and litigation, communications with acquirers and selling shareholders, and management and distribution of escrow and expense funds. On deals valued in aggregate in excess of $16 billion, SRS has represented more than 400 venture capital and private equity firms and over 19,000 shareholders in 44 countries. No one has as much knowledge and experience in serving as a shareholder representative and navigating the issues that arise post-closing than SRS.
