New York, September 26, 2005 â Revere Dataâ¢ LLC, a fast-growing provider of independent research data and investment analytics, today announced a newly updated Biotech Pipeline Risk Report that identifies micro- to mid-cap biotechnology companies with promising but relatively low-risk drug development
The Biotech Pipeline Risk Report is designed to generate ideas for trading and investment opportunities in the Biopharmaceuticals sector. The updated Report is available on Revere Dataâs website.
Specifically, the Biotech Pipeline Risk Report identifies companies that meet all of the following criteria:
1. At least two Phase III or FDA-filed drug candidates
2. One or more drug candidates utilizing a mechanism of action already approved by the FDA in other
3. One or more drug candidates facing two or fewer alternative drugs with the same mechanism of
action for the same indication
4. An established strategic partnership with at least one blue-chip biopharmaceutical company
5. Market capitalization between $50 million and $1 billion
"The 16 Biotech companies profiled in the February 17, 2005 Biotech Pipeline Risk Report provided evidence that companies meeting the stringent report requirements demonstrated less volatility than Biotech companies with only one late stage drug in their pipeline," said Brian Hill, Director of Research for Revere Data. "5 out of the 16 featured companies had negative clinical results or FDA decisions in the past 6 months, dropping an average of 24.9%. Biotech companies dependent on single late stage drugs dropped an average of 51.9% over the same period after receiving negative results".

traded Biotech companies" said Glen Wolyner, Chief Executive Officer of Revere Data.
