At-the-Market Offerings (ATM) of Life Sciences Companies Perform Well in Weak Follow-on Financing Environment of Third Quarter
Date:12/13/2011

NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Brinson Patrick Securities Corporation, a boutique investment bank specializing in at-the-market (ATM) offerings, announced today that life sciences companies in the U.S. raised $25 million through activity of nine ATM offerings of common stock in the third quarter of this year.

Life science companies that utilized ATMs to raise capital in the third quarter included AEterna Zentaris Inc., Quebec City, Quebec; OXiGENE Inc., South San Francisco; Apricus Biosciences, Inc., San Diego; and XOMA Ltd., Berkeley, Calif.
