LLR Partners-backed Phreesia files for $125 million IPO

Tom Paine

New York-based Phreesia, which uses a tabloid device to collect information from intake patients, eliminating the waste and lost information caused by hated paper forms, filed last week for an IPO pigeonholed at $125 million.

Philadelphia-based LLR Partner led a $30 million PE round in 2014. Phreesia has raised $92.6 million to date.

I’ll give a limited user endorsement because I’ve used the product in real life, not in a lab situation. For me, filling out the usual first-time patient info form is usually a nightmare because my handwriting is not very fine. Phreesia makes the process a breeze, and handles payment also. Since I used it a couple of years back, I believe Phreesia added connectivity, which greatly increases its potential for other applications.

I say a limited endorsement because I know there are competitors out there and I don’t know how they stack up versus Phreesia..

For the Fiscal Years 2018 and 2019, Phreesia revenue was $79.8 million and $99.9 million, against net losses of $18.2 million and  $15.1 million.

LLR has a 23.85% pre-IPO stake.

It’s product is long overdue.

Clinical Trial data leader Medidata, with Conshy office, to be acquired by Dassault for $5.8 billion

It really flies

Tom Paine

Medidata, which calls itself a Unified Life Science Platform, agreed yesterday to be acquired by French technology company Dassault for $5.8 billion in cash, 2% less than its closing price the preceding Friday.

New York-based Medidata, founded in 1999 and specializing in data and processes related to clinical trials, has an office in Conshohocken dating from an acquisition with some 100 employees, per LinkedIn. There is stepped up competition as larger participants enter the market. Medidata revenue increased 17% last year to $635.7 million while it reported net income of $51.9 million.

Other larger entrants in the market include Oracle, Veeva Systems, CRF Bracket (just renamed Signant Health), BioClinica, and IQVIA , the result of the merger between IMS Health and Quintiles.

Dassault had revenue of $3.5 billion euros in 2018. It acquired Quintiq, a supply chain software provider based in Radnor and the Netherlands, for $336 milion in 2014. Rumors about Dassault’s interest in Medidata date back to at least April.


Veeva Soars on Earnings Release

Veeva Soars on Earnings Release

Tom Paine

  California-based Veeva Systems (NYSE: VEEV), the Life Sciences Cloud company with east coast operations based in Radnor, announced 1st quarter 2020 results on May 29 . it was a blowout quarter in which revenue reached a billion dollar annual run rate at $245 million, up 25% year over year. First quarter operating income was $71.2 million, compared to $44.0 million one year ago, an increase of 62% year-over-year. Net Income grew 66% year-over-year.

Veeva also has offices in Fort Washington and Princeton. 

Veeva highlighted the continued success of ongoing product development, including the release of Veeva Andi, an AI application that delivers
insights and suggestions from within Veeva CRM, and the adoption of its relatively new Veeva Vault CDMS offering by a Top Twenty Pharma. Also, Veeva recently introduced Veeva Claims, for non-pharma clients to help them with end-to-end claims management.

Veeva raised its revenue guidance for FY2020 to revenues between $1,045 and $1,050 million, a $20 million upward adjustment. Its shares broke through to a new high after the earnings release and now trade at $162.20, giving Veeva a market value of just under $24 billion, and a remarkable price to sales (not price to earnings) ratio of 24.

The intense pressure resulting from being a “momentum stock” now plagues Veeva, a nice problem to have. Investor expectations become more and more demanding, and even a slight negative surprise could cause a dramatic decline in the share price
