BRIDGEWATER, N.J., June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Valeritas, makers of the V-Go® insulin delivery device, today announced that they have closed a structured debt financing with Capital Royalty L.P. which provides Valeritas with up to $100 million to further support the commercialization of the V-Go.
"We are pleased to have Capital Royalty as a financial partner," said Kristine Peterson, Valeritas Chief Executive Officer. "This financing gives us further flexibility to expand our US commercial efforts for V-Go and bring this innovative treatment approach to many more patients with Type 2 diabetes."
V-Go is a simple, fully-disposable device that delivers a continuous preset basal rate of insulin for 24 hours with on-demand mealtime dosing. It is designed to be easier to use and assist with blood glucose control in adult patients who require insulin.
"The V-Go is unlike anything else on the insulin delivery market for patients with Type 2 diabetes," said Charles Tate, Chairman and Founder of Capital Royalty L.P. "We see great long-term potential in the V-Go and our investment in Valeritas aligns with our continued focus on building customized financing solutions for healthcare companies with innovative commercial technologies."
This financing builds on Valeritas' previously announced $150 million equity financing in 2011 and strong backing of leading private equity and venture capital investors.
About the V-Go® Disposable Insulin Delivery Device
The V-Go® is a simple, fully disposable device for the delivery of basal-bolus insulin therapy in adults with Type 2 diabetes. The V-Go provides a continuous preset basal rate of insulin and allows for on-demand bolus dosing around mealtimes, thereby providing an alternative to taking multiple daily insulin injections.
Important Risk Information: If regular adjustments or modifications to the basal rate of insulin are required in a 24-hour period, or if the amount of insulin used at meals requires adjustments of less than 2-Unit increments, use of the V-Go Disposable Insulin Delivery Device may result in hypoglycemia. The following conditions may occur during insulin therapy with the V-Go: hypoglycemia (low blood glucose) or hyperglycemia (high blood glucose). Other adverse reactions associated with V-Go use include skin irritation from the adhesive pad or infections at the infusion site. The V-Go should be removed before any magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) testing.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
