That Go South
to Defend Your Firm in the Wake of an Unraveling Deal
In May 2008, Protein Sciences
Corp. negotiated an acquisition agreement by Emergent
BioSolutions (EBS). Soon after, EBS failed to garner its
shareholders’ support for the deal. Unraveling of the
deal led to suits and counter suits.
Hear from Daniel Adams,
President and CEO of Protein Sciences, on lessons learned when
a potential partner becomes an unwanted suitor.
Adams became CEO of Protein Sciences in 1995. He has
previously founded and managed biopharmaceutical companies
that have a combined market value of over $30 billion. He
co-founded Biogen (OTC-BGEN) and served as its first President
and CEO, founded and was CEO of Advanced Genetic Sciences Inc.
("AGS"), and co-founded Plant Genetic Systems in
1982 and alleRX in 1989.
Now the Company is in the
news worldwide because it is in the process of manufacturing a
vaccine for Swine Flu and it expects to be able to make 20,000
to 30,000 doses of vaccine/week beginning in early to mid
a BA degree in Chemistry from Cornell University and a JD
magna cum laude from New York University School of Law.
