It's Down, It's Up

Market worries earlier this week have left some in biotech shaken, FierceBiotech says.

The company filed to go public in March with plans to offer up to $60 million of its stock. 

The firm will withdraw its planned IPO after being told that it would have to take a 30 to 40 percent discount to its valuation, its CEO said. 

The $180 million offering is well above the firm's initial target for proceeds of $100 million.

The firm said in an SEC document that it plans to offer 6.25 million shares and expects net proceeds of up to $103.3 million.
