VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Aug. 2, 2019 - PRLog -- While big, unprofitable tech IPOs dominated headlines this year, it might be time for potential investors to turn their attention back to the early-stage biotech sector. Barrons magazine estimated that since 2012, early-stage biotech companies that have gone public have, on average, raised more money and performed better than biotech companies whose initial public offering came closer to when they brought their products to market. Between 2001 and 2017, only 6% of biotech companies were profitable at the time of their initial public offering, according to an analysis conducted by Jay Ritter, a finance professor at the Warrington College of Business at the University of Florida. During the same time frame, the average three-year buy-and-hold return for more than 350 biotech companies that went public was 36.3% — beating the market by 14%.
