Biopharma Quarterly Statistics Q1 2010

In Vivo presents another quarterly review of pharmaceutical/biotechnology dealmaking - for the first quarter of 2010. Our data come from Elsevier's Strategic Transactions. During the first quarter of 2010, biopharma companies raised $2.6 billion through 94 transactions, slightly better than last year's opening, but a decrease of 43% from Q4 2009. Early venture capital rounds were the most popular type of financings, followed closely by follow-on public offerings and private investments in public companies, but FOPOs clearly brought in the most money, $1.1 billion.With less than half the M&A deal volume of the previous quarter - however, about the same dollar figure - Q1 2010's 12 transactions brought in $7.1 billion.
