Paris, London and New York October 10th 2013 – Bryan, Garnier & Co, the European Growth Investment Bank, announces today the success of the Initial Public Offering of LDR Holding, a global medical device company on the Nasdaq Global Market under the ticker symbol “LDRH”. Bryan Garnier & Co acted as joint bookrunner with Piper Jaffray & Co and William Blair & Co., while Cowen & Co, Stephens Inc. and JMP Securities were Co-managers of the offering.

The offering of 5,000,000 new shares at $15 per share, the middle of the indicative range, provides LDR with $75m of gross proceeds. In addition, the over-allotment option has been fully exercised, resulting in the issue of additional 750,000 shares of common stock at the public offering price representing $11.3m. The market capitalisation of LDR is approximately $351m following the IPO. In the first day of trading, Wednesday, October 9th, shares rose 29% at $19.4 with significant volumes.

The high level of demand for the stock reflects the renewed appetite of investors for midcap growth companies. “The institutional demand gathered across Europe despite the Nasdaq listing and US-denominated stock sends a strong signal on European investors coming back to companies which have the potential to establish new market leadership. As a leading European independent investment bank focused on the growth sectors of the economy, Bryan Garnier demonstrates its capability to support global growth companies in their approach of European capital markets” said Greg Revenu, Managing Partner at Bryan, Garnier & Co. “Based on widely-recognised specialised equity research and investment banking capacity, Bryan Garnier has established itself as the leading healthcare franchise for growth companies in the sector in Europe, with transactions ranging from M&A to the public to private growth financing” added Hervé Ronin, Director Healthcare at Bryan, Garnier & Co.
