Three months ago, Trendlines completed an IPO on the Singapore Stock Exchange at a company valuation of close to $90 million.
Trendlines was founded in 2007 and has 46 portfolio companies in medicine and agriculture, and is managed by Todd Dollinger and Steve Rhodes (Chairman and CEOs). The Company canceled a planned $20 million IPO on the Toronto exchange last year. Instead, the Company was able to raise approximately $39 million on the other side of the globe.
Three months later, the incubator has a market cap of S$106.8 million Singapore, or about US$76 million. In the last three months, the share turnover enjoyed an average of $3.8 million a day. The 2015 financial report, which was released a few days ago, showed that Trendlines showed an increase of 11.7% in the value of its investment in its portfolio companies, reaching $84.5 million.
