Vitality Biopharma Hires Investment Bank To Explore M&A, Asset Sale Opportunities
Neil Morganbesser, DelMorgan's President and CEO, said “the right partner — either through M&A or a capital infusion — could be the key to unlocking Vitality’s explosive growth potential."
Vitality’s portfolio consists of cannabinoid drugs and new treatments for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Vitality CEO Michael Cavanaugh said he was “thrilled” that Santa Monica, California-based DelMorgan opted to help the company “evaluate strategic alternatives," including asset divestitures, potential financing deals and strategic partnerships.
DelMorgan has a “deep capital markets expertise and well-earned trust within the investment community,” which is essential in guiding the Los Angeles-headquartered company “through the process of evaluating strategic alternatives to maximize value for all of our shareholders,” added Cavanaugh.
