August 19, 2009
If July and August are any indications, the second half of 2009 is shaping up pretty nicely for the Polaris portfolio, especially considering we are in a recession. (Yes, this post is shameless promotion, but given the events of the last year I am not going to apologize for celebrating good news).
Fresh on the heels of the highly successful LogMeIn IPO in July, today our portfolio company Athenix is announcing that it has agreed to be acquired by Bayer Crop Sciences in a fantastic outcome for all parties.
Congrats to Athenix, and my partner Amir Nashat!
