After a slow 2001 in IPOs, Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison got off to a quick start last week by having a hand in the nation’s first IPO for 2002. To top it off, the firm turned around the next day and completed another public offering. “It was quite a week,” said Curtis Mo, a partner with San Francisco-based Brobeck who worked on both deals. “To suddenly see us start the new year with a bang was pretty refreshing.” The first deal involved the IPO for a San Jose, Calif.-based technology company. “The fact that it was a technology IPO in this market was pretty impressive,” said Mo. “I had a number of IPOs basically be put on hold during 2001 because of the market both for companies and underwriters I represent.” In the deal, Brobeck represented the underwriters, led by Bear Stearns, for the initial public offering of 5 million shares of Synaptics Inc. at a price of $11 per share. The stock reached a high of $13.64 on its first day, Jan. 29. Synaptics develops custom-designed user interface solutions for notebook computers. Working on the offering were partners Mo and Richard Leska. Associates Peter Buckland and Peter Park also worked on the deal. All four attorneys work in the firm’s business and technology group in Palo Alto, Calif. Greenberg Traurig represented Synaptics in the deal. Lead attorneys for Greenberg were Phoenix-based partners Robert Kant, Jean Harris and associate Brian Blaney. The second offering involving Brobeck last week was for Polycom Inc., a Milpitas, Calif.-based manufacturer of voice and video communication endpoints, video management software, multinetwork gateways and multipoint conferencing and network access solutions. In the deal, Brobeck represented the underwriters in a secondary offering for the company. Polycom offered 7 million shares at a price of $31.20 per share. Mo led the team. Also working on it were Brobeck associates Buckland, Park, Joseph Wyatt, and all of the business and technology group in Palo Alto. Representing the issuer were Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati attorneys Mark Bertelsen, Jose Macias, J. Rol Williams and Jennifer Jones.
