Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse Makes Significant Reductions Due to Uncertain Funding
Date:6/14/2013

PITTSBURGH, June 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse (PLSG) today announced a reduction in staff and levels of investment that were necessitated by delays in portfolio company exits caused primarily by the current overall investment climate and the uncertainty of state funding.

PLSG President and CEO, John W. Manzetti said, "As the region's only pure life sciences investment firm, the actions taken this week, which were approved by the PLSG Board of Directors, were necessary to protect the future of both our base economic development activities and our investments in both the PLSG and PLSG Accelerator Fund companies.

"These actions will remove expenses related to community and company support and services but still enable us to focus on investments. As our strong portfolio of companies achieve their awaited exits, the PLSG will return to historic levels of annual investment. We have centered our focus on the PLSG's premier Executive Program and have protected our ability to invest modestly until these returns are realized.  Our experienced and highly-focused investment team remains passionate and committed to the growth of the region's important life sciences sector."
