Jina Ventures Advises Swiss Pharma Contract on Strategic Sale to Covance Inc
Date:3/13/2009

NEW YORK, March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Jina Ventures is pleased to announce the acquisition of clinical pharmacology and research company, Swiss Pharma Contract (SPC) by leading contract research organization, Covance Inc (NYSE: CVD). Jina Ventures was the exclusive financial advisor to SPC in the transaction, which provides Covance with the facilities and services of Basel, Switzerland area-based SPC.

"There were bids for SPC from several global clinical research organizations, but Covance presented the most compelling opportunity for strategic long-term growth for SPC."

SPC was seed-funded by Novartis Venture Fund in 1998, and provides Phase I clinical trials to leading pharmaceutical clients and biotechnology companies in Europe, the United States and Asia. SPC's leadership includes Dr. Rolf Pokorny and Dr. Michael Seiberling, two industry veterans in the field of Phase I clinical trials.

On the heels of this transaction, Jina Ventures is poised for major growth in 2009, targeting the close of a second life sciences M&A transaction by mid-year and the launch of its second fund of US$200 million later this year. Jina's second fund is a cross border private equity fund designed to leverage global competitiveness for its portfolio co
