Aperio aims to fuel expansion plans by raising $10.6m

Aperio Technologies : 01 June, 2007  (New Product)
Aperio Technologies has raised a further $10.6 million to finance the expansion of the company’s sales, marketing and operations to implement its clinical market strategy.
To date, the company has raised a total of $33 million in equity capital.
The latest round was co-led by Galen Partners, a Stamford, Connecticut based private equity firm specialising in healthcare investing, and Advanced Technology Ventures (ATV) a bi-coastal venture fund specialising in healthcare and technology investments. Other existing investors also participated.

'As the recognised leader in digital pathology, with an installed base of more than 250 systems in more than 23 countries, and customers that include half of the top 13 pharmaceutical companies and more than two thirds of the top 14 rated US hospitals, Aperio is well positioned to unlock this market', said Tom Rodgers, a principal at Advanced Technology Ventures and a former vice president of corporate strategy at McKesson.

'Based on the benefits derived by the existing customer base, including increased efficiency, cost savings, and improved patient care, we believe Aperio will continue to dominate and lead this space with its pivotal technology'.

Zubeen Shroff, general partner at Galen, commented that, 'Aperio has done a terrific job in scaling its operations to address increasing customer demand'.
'They have solidified their leadership position in this rapidly emerging market by having superior products, successful go to market strategies, and being relentless in their focus on customer's unmet needs'.

Added Dirk Soenksen, CEO of Aperio, 'The additional capital investment by our existing investor team is an exceptional vote of confidence in Aperio and its technology'.

'We have benefited greatly from their proven experience in building healthcare technology companies and look forward to continuing to lead the industry in the adoption of digital pathology'.
