Putting a pin in exit plans

For the pack of digital health companies eyeing an exit, the path is looking a bit more treacherous. Amidst a public market cooldown, fizzling SPAC deals, and a big name acquisition facing DOJ scrutiny, many are favoring large infusions of new private funds. Last week, Rock Health portfolio company Omada Health raised $192M in their Series E, and the week prior Ro added on another $150M. Even public companies are taking advantage of private funds. In January, Sema4—a publicly-listed genomics company—collected $200M in private investment. Since private investments face fewer barriers (regulatory and otherwise) than cash from public markets, it’s easy to see why digital health heavyweights would go this route when expanding their positions in today’s digital health market. And with more digital health companies looking to make the transition to long-term sustainability, we’ll be tracking their trajectories to get there.
