Sirtris Pharmaceuticals: Living Healthier, Longer
Case Submission by Group 16
1.At the time Westphal joined Sirtris, what is your assessment of the odds that the company will ever
generate substantial revenues? If you were Westphal, would you have left Polaris for Sirtris?
2.Should Sirtris do the deal with the pharmaceutical company? Why or why not? If you do
recommend a deal, which equity stake (20% or 51%) would you prefer?
