How We Helped a Leading Tech Platform Get Acquired by a Major Brand


When Workfront received an unsolicited bid to acquire the company, they had to move fast to facilitate the due diligence process.


Workfront needed to provide a secure platform to share documents and collaborate with multiple parties in a controlled manner.

Solution and Results

Workfront quickly set up a Venue data room to prepare for the upcoming M&A and be deal ready. Instant set up, an intuitive interface and 24/7/365 support streamlined a once complicated due diligence review process and ultimately helped drive the deal with Adobe across the finish line faster.

You never know when you’re going to need a data room, so you need one now. Filing in specific diligence requests is a lot easier when you have a running head start, and DFIN made it cost-effective for us to have their data room, Venue, at the ready. I’m grateful to DFIN for helping us to get the deal done.

How We Helped a Biopharma Company at Different Stages of Its Lifecycle


Biopharmaceutical company Synthorx had already used Venue when the company transitioned from private to public with a $151 million IPO in 2018.


One year later, promising trial results meant that several major companies were interested in acquiring Synthorx. It needed a way to quickly respond to inquiries while maintaining confidentiality.

Solution and Results

Although the Synthorx transaction was exceptionally complicated—involving scores of regulatory documents, highly confidential clinical data that had not yet been made public, and compliance with European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)—Venue handled all the complexity and made the deal possible. In December 2019, Sanofi acquired Synthorx for $2.5 billion.

When you have multiple potential buyers asking hundreds of questions every day, being able to easily upload and share the right information with the right people in a virtual data room is key to a smooth transaction. Several of the parties involved were already familiar with the Venue platform. We all felt very comfortable with the security and efficiency of Venue.

How Venue’s High Security and Collaborative Design Delivered for Biopharma


When COVID-19 began shutting down most U.S. workplaces, California-based Leading BioSciences, Inc. (LBS) was in the midst of a vital Phase 2 clinical trial to test the efficacy of its main drug.


A shutdown would have meant a delay or even an end to their study. To keep the study alive, LBS put DFIN’s Venue to a novel use —sharing and managing clinical trial data — that revolutionized the way they do business.

Solution and Results

Venue’s encrypted virtual data room met all of the stringent security requirements regarding patients’ protected health information. Because the software was so intuitive and easy to use, workers at the study’s 11 trial sites and independent study monitors quickly got up to speed.

Working with DFIN’s Venue left us questioning why we were doing things how we have always done them. Using the platform has certainly opened the eyes of our company and the industry in general. We found a new way to do business that offers efficiency and cost savings and is a long-term solution.
