In the 2018 Deal Flow report, the largest single deal belongs to PetIQ of Eagle. The under-the-radar local company had the largest reported deal in the state, with $78 million raised through a public offering during the year.

The company employs more than 1,452 people according to the SEC. It generated more than $528 million in annual revenue during its most-recent public filing. Cord Christensen co-founded the business in 2010 and serves as CEO.

The company focuses on several verticals, including veterinarian services and “veterinarian-grade” pet products.

PetIQ provides products and services under a variety of brands, including Betsy Farms – a maker of American-made dog greats, Pet Lock – a flea and tick prevention product, and PetAction – an off-brand competitor to Frontline Plus for Dogs.
