Tranzyme Inc. Files for $75M IPO

DURHAM, NC – Tranzyme Inc., a clinical-stage biotech firm based in Durham, has filed for a $75 million initial public offering of stock. Tranzyme plans to use the IPO dollars to boost advancement of its lead product.

Founded in 1998, they will likely list on the NASDAQ with the symbol TZYM. In a market that has seen IPO’s all but disappear, this is an incredible step for Tranzyme and the North Carolina entrepreneurial community. Congratulations Tranzyme for this accomplishment!
