Alzheimer's biotech Alzheon re-files files for a $40 million IPO

Alzheon, a Phase 3 biotech developing small molecule therapies for Alzheimer's disease, filed on Monday with the SEC to raise up to $40 million in an initial public offering.

The company had previously attempted to go public in April 2018 but ultimately withdrew the deal, which we attributed to a history of challenges in Alzheimer's drug development. This renewed attempt scales down the offering size from $70 million, and former bookrunners Citi and Piper Jaffray have been replaced by ThinkEquity.

The Framingham, MA-based company was founded in 2013 and plans to list on the Nasdaq under the symbol ALZH. Alzheon filed confidentially on December 21, 2017. No pricing terms were disclosed.
