Steven M. Skolnick is extensively quoted in BioPharma-Reporter regarding potentially record-breaking numbers in biotech initial public offerings in 2018. Skolnick notes the strong market and economy are drivers behind investments and M&A activity, leading to a large number of successful biotech IPOs. While the first half of 2018 started off strong, Skolnick cautions that the political climate and normal market indicators may cause volatility in the latter half of the year.
