Biopharma Quarterly Deal Statistics, Q2 2012

A look at financing, M&A, and alliance activity April – June 2012

Executive Summary

Follow-on public offerings continued to dominate, with 19 transactions making up almost half of Q2’s $2.7 billion financing volume. M&A dollars, up nearly four times that of Q1, totaled $34.7 billion, for 28 completed transactions, seven of which topped the billion dollar mark. In alliances, the Q2 potential deal value – also largely increased over the previous quarter’s – marked possibly the highest amount ever seen along with maybe the most expensive deal ever: Walgreen $6.6 billion agreement to purchase a minority equity share in Alliance Boots, bringing in over half of Q2’s value.
