We had the pleasure of speaking with Hugh Evans, a member of the board of directors of Collplant Biotechnologies (US: CLGN), about the company’s technology, market opportunity, and business prospects.

A disclosure by Roumell Asset Management piqued our interest in Collplant. According to a fact sheet of Roumell Opportunistic Value Fund, Collplant was the fund’s largest holding as of June 30, comprising 8.0% of net assets.

In light of Roumell’s strong investment track record and our respect for Jim’s long term-oriented, value-based investment approach, we sought to develop an understanding of Collplant by speaking with director Hugh Evans, a former SVP at 3D Systems and a former portfolio manager at T. Rowe Price.
