  • The gene therapy biopharmaceutical company expects to raise net proceeds of $81.9M in the offering, which is due to close on February 10.
  • Seeking Alpha author Don Dion believes that while "there's no guarantee" that uniQure's main product, Glybera, will catch on, the firm "appears to have long-term potential for success in the gene therapy field."
