Public markets

Legend Capital, the venture capital firm formed by conglomerate Legend Holdings, has exited China-based contract clinical services provider R&G Pharmastudies in a $174m initial public offering on Shenzhen Stock Exchange’s Chinext market. The firm did not disclosed how much funding it had provided for R&G but said it first invested through a 2017 series A round.

Pymetrics graduated from consulting firm Accenture’s FinTech Innovation Lab and had raised a total of nearly $57m as of 2018, from investors including recruitment firm Randstad’s Innovation Fund and professional services firm Marsh & McLennan’s Mercer subsidiary as well as Salesforce Ventures and Workday Ventures, on behalf of enterprise software producers Salesforce and Workday respectively.
