Pear Ther­a­peu­tics explor­ing sale, oth­er ‘strate­gic alter­na­tives’ (Mobi­Health News):

Pre­scrip­tion dig­i­tal ther­a­peu­tics com­pa­ny Pear Ther­a­peu­tics is explor­ing “strate­gic alter­na­tives,” includ­ing a pos­si­ble com­pa­ny sale, merg­er or acquisition.

In a press release, the com­pa­ny said it hired a finan­cial advi­sor to look into actions that could “max­i­mize share­hold­er val­ue.” That includes a poten­tial sale, M&A, divesti­ture of assets, licens­ing or oth­er strate­gic trans­ac­tions. It may also seek addi­tion­al financing.

The com­pa­ny hit the pub­lic mar­kets in late 2021 through a merg­er with a spe­cial pur­pose acqui­si­tion com­pa­ny, then a pop­u­lar method of pub­lic exit for dig­i­tal health firms … In the third quar­ter, Pear report­ed $4.1 mil­lion in rev­enue and a $30.7 mil­lion net loss. The com­pa­ny also said it had approved more lay­offs, affect­ing 59 employ­ees, or about 22% of Pear’s work­force at the end of Sep­tem­ber. It had pre­vi­ous­ly laid off 25 work­ers over the summer.
