Say About Us

Case Studies

Client Situation
  • Oncology focused, early-clinical EU biotech
  • First to clinically overcome tox problems previously associated with targeted pathway
  • Successfully raised a total of $50m privately
  • $30m spent, $20m remaining
Treehill Mission
  • Understand hurdles from an investor’s perspective to raising capital
  • Establish certainty about most financeable corporate & product development strategy forward
  • Support management & board decisions to change the company’s trajectory
  • World-class preclinical and phase 1 data package, in line with a large pharma buyer’s expectations
  • Not ready for phase 2. Lack of patient identification capabilities, high risk of failure
  • Shareholder base and pool of capital not suitable to support next development stage
  • EU-centric operations, not internalized into US or Asian hot-spot communities/ centers of excellence
Recommendations & Implementation
  • Strong fundamentals underscore significant value creation potential
  • Don’t start phase 2. Expand phase 1b. Augment biomarker capabilities, understand response drivers
  • Devise integrated product development and capital raising plan. Build storyline to near-term IPO
  • Broaden geographic coverage into US to further access to expertise, relationships, and capital
Client Situation
  • Global pharmaceutical major
  • Market-leading, profitable, growing asset non- synergistic with remainder of the group’s businesses
  • Existing regional partnerships, some lagging performance
  • Desire to dispose of certain geographies entirely
Treehill Mission
  • Initial “simple ask” to oversee transaction with one of the existing partners
  • Existing partners were no viable buyers due to competitive situation along supply chain
  • Significant upside opportunities identified but no plan to harvest and not factored into divestment considerations
  • Corporate memory on asset erased, team had been let go
Recommendations & Implementation
  • Re-instated prior team and corporate memory on the asset
  • Comprehensive reverse diligence across supply chain, regulatory, sales & marketing, financial, etc.
  • Creation of business plan and transaction materials for marketing as well as diligence
  • Developed alternative strategic pathways, including a “hold and build” scenario – which was the CEO’s concluding choice
  • Disposed 4 years later after implementation of growth, at a multiple of value
Client Situation
  • US listed oncology biotech
  • Platform tech with programs from late clinical to preclinical
  • Market cap from $1bn to $100m to $10m
  • Three CEOs in four years
Treehill Mission
  • Comprehensive plan to ascertain viability
  • Optimize capital allocation
  • Drive large pharma engagement
  • Phase III program non-viable; largest value in early-stage programs
  • Silos of scientific and business teams not integrated into cohesive strategic effort
  • Capital markets communication not in sync with pipeline prospects
Recommendations & Implementation
  • Abandon late-stage program; freeing up resources for follow-ons
  • Focused partnering campaign for mid-stage program; re-setting perception and yielding a significant partnership commitment
  • Value creation trajectory plan for early-stage pipeline, fuelling equity story
Client Situation
  • EU pharma family office with broad venture portfolio
  • Some assets close to value inflection points
  • Significant capital deployed across portfolio
  • $30m spent, $20m remaining
Treehill Mission
  • Portfolio review focused on transactability of most mature assets
  • Strategic plan to resolve gaps before transaction processes
  • Support management & board decisions to change the company’s trajectory
  • Mostly excellent science, clearly differentiated
  • Competitiveness of target product profiles limited; implications for exit structure and process
  • Several key gaps in bidder package
Recommendations & Implementation
  • Value realization strategy and tactical plans
  • Pathways to resolve regulatory, CMC and pricing gaps as relevant to the respective businesses
  • Several transactions since materialized
