Will The ATAI Life Sciences IPO Bring Investor Interest Back To the Psychedelics Sector?

Although the psychedelic sector has come off its 2021 highs, we believe the sector is barely in the first inning of a major growth cycle. 

Several psychedelic therapy companies are in advanced US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clinical trials and we expect positive data from these studies to serve as a catalyst for the entire industry.

ATAI Life Sciences, a biopharmaceutical company that is focused on commercializing psychedelic therapies to treat mental health disorders, is considered to be a leader in the psychedelic therapy market and recent announced plans to raise $100 million in an initial public offering (IPO).

Billionaire investor Peter Thiel is a high-profile investor in ATAI and we are favorable on his involvement. Thiel is a large investor in other psychedelic therapy companies and we are favorable on this due to his track record of success.  

The IPO filing shows that ATAI has raised $362.3 million from private investors so far. With this amount of capital, we believe the company is well positioned to execute on its clinical trials and are favorable on the strength of its balance sheet. 

As it relates to ATAI’s IPO, the underwriters include Credit Suisse, Citigroup, Cowen, and Berenberg. Although a date for the IPO has not been announced, the psychedelic therapy company plans to list on the Nasdaq under the symbol, ATAI.

When compared to other psychedelic therapy companies, we consider ATAI to be a differentiated opportunity. The company describes itself as a drug development platform that was formed to acquire, incubate and develop psychedelics and other drugs that can be used to treat depression, anxiety, addiction and other mental health conditions.

ATAI has partnered with 14 companies that are focused on drug development and other technologies. The company receives a majority ownership stake from the drugs and technologies that it partners with and we are favorable on this structure. In return, ATAI helps with raising capital, working with the regulators, and conducting clinical trials.

We are excited about ATAI’s planned IPO and believe that our readers need to be aware of the opportunity. If you are interested in learning more about ATAI Life Sciences, please send an email to with the subject “ATAI Life Sciences” to be added to our distribution list.
