Bristol-Myers Squibb Co.'s purchase of Amira Pharmaceuticals Inc. for $325 million upfront and another $150 million in downstream milestones shows that prior licensing deals and multiple programs in a pipeline don't necessarily curb a start-up's acquisition potential, provided investors are thinking smartly about deal structures that create separate value streams for the various products in the portfolio.

Venture Eyes Ophthalmology--And Likes What It Sees

Ophthalmology has long been a bright spot for venture investors given the potential market size, health care burden, and high unmet medical need associated with many eye diseases. Based on a recent analysis by Start-Up magazine, there is no sign that trend is diminishing. Using Elsevier's Strategic Transactions database, Start-Up found that private backers have poured nearly $1.8 billion into 58 ophthalmology start-ups since 1999, with the money split nearly 50/50 in terms of device and drug investments. This trend is likely to accelerate as a number of new acquirers emerge to play in what was once a niche area.
