There was a major story a few days ago about LS9 in the Times Online:
I have previously written several articles that mentioned LS9, including:
Apparently as a result of the Times article, there have been a number of articles in the past couple of days on LS9. This naturally attracted the attention of investors, and I have literally had hundreds of hits to my LS9 story by people Googling LS9 stock. In fact, right now if you Google that (without quotation marks), my story comes up at the top of the first page.
So, in an effort to provide investors what they are looking for (the other LS9 story doesn’t provide this information): There is no publicly traded LS9 stock. LS9 is privately held. They have only taken on private equity. I have had some contacts with Greg Pal at LS9 in the past, so I wrote to ask him whether they were still accepting investments. His answer: We’re not accepting outside investment at this time. So, right now you are out of luck if you want to invest in LS9.
You might try LS9 competitor Virent. They are also private, but they might be open to outside investors. Contacting them may be worth a shot.
