Quidel Corporation Triple Winner in International MarCom Awards Competition

Quidel Corporation

Quidel Corporation has been honored with three awards for creative excellence from the international MarCom Awards competition, just announced. Quidel is the diagnostic health care manufacturer behind the industry’s most rapid and reliable in-office test for Lyme disease, the Sofia® 2 Lyme FIA test. The MarCom Awards is an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communications professionals, both corporate and agency. Quidel was cited for excellence while competing against more than 6,500 entries from the United States and several foreign countries. Quidel was presented with MarCom’s highest honor—a Platinum Award—for its soon-to-launch consumer-facing website titled “Lyme Disease Answers.” Created in tandem with its strategic and creative partner breakwhitelight, the website will provide consumers with the peace of mind that comes with increased knowledge of the prevalence, causes, warning signs and symptoms of Lyme disease as well as important information regarding the latest in Lyme disease testing and treatment. A Gold Award was presented to Quidel for its new series of attention-grabbing educational videos called “Quick Takes.” This soon-to-launch library of short and engaging videos, which will be regularly produced in the coming months with breakwhitelight, will help health care professionals and consumers alike enhance their knowledge of Lyme disease by providing the information, expertise and up-to-the-minute data needed to quickly and clearly confront this disease that afflicts as many as 400,000 Americans every year. Quidel was also honored by MarCom for a commentary by Roxanne Carfora, D.O., titled “An Epidemic Within a Pandemic.” Published in the August 2020 issue of Healthcare Business Today, the article calls Lyme disease one of the fastest-growing infectious diseases in the country and speaks to the needed partnership between medical science and consumers to understand the disease and to lessen its spread. Lyme disease can strike anyone at any age and can lead to a number of serious, life-threatening problems if not caught early. Leading the way in Lyme disease testing is Quidel’s innovative Sofia 2 Lyme FIA test. This test provides a patient as well as his or her physician with indicative results within minutes as opposed to days, which has historically been the norm. Performed in the privacy of a doctor’s office or local clinic, it is also the only test that can get results from a simple finger prick of blood. Given that the vast majority of patients tested are negative, not having to wait days for test results allows physicians and nurse practitioners to more rapidly treat those patients with positive results while more quickly pursuing other diagnosis and treatment for those who test negative. About Quidel Corporation Quidel Corporation (Nasdaq: QDEL) is a leading manufacturer of diagnostic solutions at the point of care, delivering a continuum of rapid testing technologies that further improve the quality of health care throughout the globe. An innovator for over 40 years in the medical device industry, Quidel pioneered the first FDA-cleared point-of-care test for influenza in 1999 and was the first to market a rapid SARS-CoV-2 antigen test in the U.S. Under trusted brand names, Sofia®, Solana®, Lyra®, Triage® and QuickVue®, Quidel’s comprehensive product portfolio includes tests for a wide range of infectious diseases, cardiac and autoimmune biomarkers, as well as a host of products to detect COVID-19. With products made in America, Quidel’s mission is to provide patients with immediate and frequent access to highly accurate, affordable testing for the good of our families, our communities and the world.

DealCloud Survey Shows Optimism as Private Investors Look Beyond the Pandemic

Intapp

Fundraising Expectations High as Firms Gear Up to Deploy Dry Powder Limited COVID-19 Impact on Portfolios DealCloud (an Intapp company), a leading provider of deal, relationship and firm management solutions for capital markets firms, today released the Fall 2020 edition of its Dealmaker Pulse Survey, which indicates that private investors have moved past pandemic concerns regarding impact on current investments and are now concentrating on sourcing and closing new deals. In addition, a surprising number of firms raising new funds expect to meet or exceed their targets, despite existing dry powder. “In the six months since our last survey, the focus has shifted from portfolio concerns to dealmaking,” said Ben Harrison, co-founder and president of DealCloud. “Investors expect founder-owned businesses to see significant deal activity, though private equity firms of all sizes recognize that finding quality assets at fair valuations will be a challenge with increased competition.” The survey also revealed that fundraising may be returning to pre-pandemic levels. Only 12% of investors postponed or suspended fundraising plans, and a mere 6% lowered the target for their next fund. Meanwhile, an impressive 26% said their next fund will actually be larger than originally anticipated. Other findings from the survey include: New platforms are the focus: 70% of investors said new platform investments are their primary focus over the next six months, compared to 35% six months ago Fewer investors expect valuations to decline further: only 35% of respondents said they expect valuations to decline, down from 93% in April The pandemic continues to impact the work environment: 47% of private equity firms have plans to return to the office, and only 40% have plans to resume business development travel, as technology-driven operations are seen by many as a bare minimum to remain competitive and cultivate key relationships For some, dealmaking evaporated: 30% of investors said their firm did not close a deal (platform or add-on) since March “Clearly, investors are eager to deploy dry powder, but questions remain about who is able to close deals in this environment,” said Chris Gaffney, co-founder and managing partner of Great Hill Partners, a leading growth-oriented private equity firm. “Many firms are finding ways to close deals even as business development teams remain grounded, suggesting that the relationship cultivation that has traditionally taken place face-to-face has become increasingly reliant on technology over the past six months.” DealCloud’s Dealmaker Pulse Fall 2020 Survey polled dealmakers to gain key insights into how capital markets firms are dealing with the effects of the global pandemic and thinking about opportunities for the fourth quarter, next year and beyond. The online survey was conducted via DealCloud Dispatch, the platform’s integrated marketing solution, amid the COVID-19 crisis from Sept. 21 to Oct. 5, 2020. DealCloud will host a webinar to provide more color on the results of the DealCloud Dealmaker Pulse Fall 2020 Survey: Dealmaker Pulse: Key Findings for Capital Markets Firms to Take into 2021 Thursday, Nov. 11, 2020 at 11:00am EST Register here: https://dealcloud.com/event/dealcloud-dealmaker-pulse-key-findings-for-capital-markets-firms-to-take-into-2021/ To see the full results of the DealCloud Dealmaker Pulse Fall 2020 Survey, visit dealcloud.com/pulse.

LEADING CALIFORNIA BUSINESS ADVOCACY ORGANIZATIONS WARNED OF CONSEQUENCES OF ANTHEM BLUE CROSS POLICY

California Rheumatology Alliance

The California Rheumatology Alliance (CRA) along with many other physician and patient advocacy organizations are working to enlist the business community to join in its fight against implementation of a harmful prescription policy from Anthem Blue Cross. The dangerous policy will make it nearly impossible for certain treatments (specifically infusion therapy) to be conducted in physician offices – under their care. The policy is being rushed to implementation on December 1, 2020. In letters to business advocacy organizations, CRA warns the business community of the looming threat to the California workforce. Recipients of the letter include, but are not limited to: California Chamber of Commerce (CalChamber) California Federation of Business & Professional Women California Small Business Association California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce “Anthem’s new policy transfers medications covered on the medical side of insurance to the pharmacy side. While more economically lucrative for the payers and specialty pharmacies, based on the hidden fees and price concessions - the patient is harmed, as are the businesses employing them,” stated Dr. Samy Metyas, CRA’s President. “Patients that delay treatment or go elsewhere (like a hospital) for care will experience longer waits, less oversight, and substantially higher out of pocket costs. Forcing patients to take on these added burdens, at a time like this, is shameful.” The letter to business advocacy organizations states in part: “…Delay or loss of medical treatment results in increased disease activity resulting in further increases in costs to patient health and welfare. Missed time from work, and lower productivity will cost employers immensely more than any savings promised by this policy change…. …As patient access to proper treatments is lost, it costs everyone more…” “As physicians on the front lines of medical care, we will fight for our patients,” Dr. Metyas continued. “As someone on the front lines protecting California businesses, surely these business-oriented organizations care for the wellbeing of its members too. Hopefully, we will join forces to educate employers and patients to avoid securing insurance policies that reduce access to care.” CRA sent a letter requesting a meeting last week to Anthem’s California Plan President, Beth Anderson that has so far, gone unanswered. “Doctors and patients are worried. From oncologists, to rheumatologists and ophthalmologists, – the dangers of this policy are very real,” said Dr. Metyas. “Anthem’s silence is creating more concern among patients, particularly now when a sense of security and stability is what people are seeking. It must reconsider.” The California Rheumatology Alliance is a specialty physician association comprised of rheumatologists from community practices and medical centers throughout the state. The majority of its members come from the Northern California Rheumatology Society (NCRS), the Southern California Rheumatology Society (SCRS) and the San Diego Rheumatology Society (SDRS). Membership has since expanded to include all those health professionals regularly engaged in the care of patients with rheumatic diseases. ### Please visit https://www.calrheum.org/ For more information, or to schedule an interview with a CRA spokesperson, please contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or daniel.rene@kglobal.com Contact Details Dan Rene +1 202-329-8357 daniel.rene@kglobal.com Company Website https://www.calrheum.org/

Comodo Announces Sovaton as Distributor Partner for South African Cybersecurity Marketplace

Comodo

Comodo, the world’s leader of next-generation cybersecurity announced a partnership with Sovaton, a value-added distributor (VAD) with a sole focus on IT security solutions to protect and defend IT networks, data management and compliance. Together Comodo and Sovaton will bring Comodo’s entire range of cybersecurity solutions to the MSP ecosystem. “ Cybersecurity is continuously changing, and we are always looking at solutions in the market. We understand that the traditional break-fix reseller model won’t grow business and the transition to a Managed Service Provider (MSP) and selling managed services presents a great opportunity for Value Added Resellers (VARs) to build additional revenue streams and improve margins. It’s no longer an option for MSPs, VARS and other channel partners to sell cybersecurity, it’s important that those entering the cybersecurity space understand what a solid security stack should entail. It’s more than simply switching antivirus, a well-rounded security portfolio along with trust can build new capabilities to deliver managed services. Comodo delivers solutions that address a layered security approach,” said Lisa Rice, General Manager at Sovaton. Sovaton will offer Comodo’s Dragon platform with AEP, which is a complete cloud-native framework that delivers a zero-trust architecture to protect and defend endpoints. Its patent-pending auto containment technology has active breach protection that neutralizes ransomware, malware and cyber-attacks. The auto containment runs an unknown executable in a kernel API virtualized mode, thereby offering attack surface reduction (ASR) which neutralizes ransomware attacks. The Dragon Platform also utilizes a Default Deny security posture with Default Allow usability to provide a most comprehensive protection against zero-day threats, while having no impact on end-user experience or workflows. Lisa said, “The best thing about the Dragon platform is its ability to stop and roll back ransomware, coupled with guaranteed four-hour SOC turnaround on threat determination should AI methods not succeed. While no security vendor can guarantee to stop zero-day malware from entering an environment, Comodo’s approach in auto containment is the strongest we have come across yet.” In addition, Comodo’s Valkyrie analyzes and gives a trusted verdict for every file – no other company will analyze and give trusted verdict for 100% of files on a network. Comodo’s platform shares intelligence and is therefore more secure than disparate products that claim best of breed but don’t share information. Comodo has architected its cybersecurity product to maximize intelligent sharing between every component of the platform, therefore providing superior security. Lisa continued, “Offering the right cybersecurity solutions to our channel partners to stay ahead of cyberthreats is key to enabling MSPs and MSSPs to help the SMB market. Keeping abreast of market trends and evaluating solutions is part of our strategy. We looked at various managed detection and response (MDR) solutions, fully managed SOC services, security monitoring, and endpoint and email protection platforms. Comodo checks the boxes of the areas we want to handle. Plus, the onboarding process has given us peace of mind that we have selected a quality vendor.” Alan Knepfer, President and Chief Revenue Office at Comodo said, “Our partnership with Sovaton was born when they were in the process of rebranding, analyzing their product set, restructuring underperforming products, and nailing down specific drivers to move with market dynamics. Promoting Comodo’s solutions will help them attract new prospects and expand their network while driving the importance of cybersecurity.” About Sovaton Sovaton are a Value-Added Distributor (VAD) with a sole focus on IT security solutions to protect and defend IT networks, data management and compliance. Operating through a network of reseller partners, offering them a single point of expertise and assistance as they deliver solutions to improve the efficiency of modern business. We understand that our future success will depend on understanding your business and the challenges you face, and we offer a comprehensive suite of security services and software to meet your needs.

Citybiz Interview with Tony Gruebl, President of Think & Jeff Musgrove, MD of Executive Advisory and PE & Venture Support

Citybizlist

In this second interview citybiz asks Baltimore-based Think’s Tony Gruebl, the firm’s president and founder, and Jeff Musgrove, managing director of executive advisory and PE and venture support, to discuss the company’s recent acquisition of Ventrue and why it puts the company on the path to offering services nationwide. In September, Think purchased Ventrue LLC, a Naples, Fla.-based shared services company for an undisclosed price. As part of the transaction Think signed a partnership agreement with Naples Technology Ventures (NTV), a venture capital fund that invests in technology companies. Think will provide technology and advisory services to support NTV’s acquisitions. The Ventrue and NTV deal opens new markets for Think, primarily with private equity and venture capital firms. Musgrove says potential clients are disruptors operating in insurtech, fintech and healthtech. Through Ventrue, Think can plug into these companies and advise them along the business lifecycle in three primary areas: diligence, integration and optimization. “I have been a big believer that there is a gap to be filled by a firm like Think in that space as a trusted partner to the PE or VC firm who can go in and perform those critical functions for them,” Musgrove said. “So, they don’t need to build it. We have the expertise.” To hear more from Gruebl and Musgrove, click the below video. Citybizlist is a publisher of news and information about business, power, money, and people in 13 major U.S. city markets, including Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Charlotte/Raleigh, Atlanta, South Florida, Los Angeles, San Diego, Dallas and Houston.
