chairman, president and CEO of Icos (ICOS), is prepared to make his
second personal investment in a biotech limited partnership vehicle. He plans
to help Icos Clinical Partners L.P. meet its lofty goal of selling $100 million
worth of partnership interests to private investors (see B18).
While the company
declined to discuss the deal, citing the quiet period, a spokesperson indicated
that Rathmann is likely to participate in the financing. Rathmann, who
co-founded Amgen (AMGN) in 1980, invested in Amgen Clinical Partners
L.P., which raised $75 million in 1987.
