Cowen Royalty Announces Name Change, Unveils New Website

STAMFORD, CT – June 25, 2012 — Cowen Healthcare Royalty Partners, a global healthcare investment firm, today announced that it has changed its name to HealthCare Royalty Partners (“HC Royalty”).

He continued, “Healthcare companies continue to look for innovative structured financing solutions to fund their corporate and development objectives. We believe we can offer them attractive solutions to achieve these goals and expect 2012 to be another record year for deal activity in the space.”

In connection with the name change, HC Royalty has launched a new corporate website and relocated to new offices in Stamford, CT.
