March 27, 2018

Foley Hoag LLP recently represented specialty pharmaceutical company CutisPharma, Inc. in its sale to NovaQuest Capital Management, L.L.C., a leading investor of life sciences and healthcare companies.

Founded in 1998, Wilmington, Mass.-based CutisPharma develops and commercializes compounding kits that help patients who are unable to swallow conventional oral dosage forms, such as tablets and capsules, and whose needs are not served by commercially available therapies. The company’s portfolio of kits is utilized in thousands of retail and hospital pharmacies across the United States. 

NovaQuest was formed in 2000 to provide strategic capital to life sciences and healthcare companies through its biopharma and private equity strategies. The acquisition of CutisPharma is considered an excellent fit with NovaQuest’s philosophy of providing strategic capital to businesses that reduce the cost of care, meet unmet medical need, increase efficacy, and improve quality of life.

Foley Hoag attorneys Daniel ClevengerJoseph Basile, Jonathan Romiti, Yashreeka Huq, Colin Zick, Nicola Lemay, Nicholas Romanos, Jennifer Audeh, Mai Zymaris and paralegal Cliff Esher advised CutisPharma in the transaction.
