Biopharma Quarterly Dealmaking Statistics, Q1 2019

A Look At Financing, M&A And Alliance Activity January-March 2019

Executive Summary

First quarter biopharma financing, at $17.96bn, demonstrated a 65% increase over Q4 2018. The $92bn in total M&A activity was led by Bristol-Myers Squibb's $74bn buy of top-tier public biotech Celgene. At $39.4bn in total potential deal value, alliance dealmaking started off 2019 strong, with most of the top partnerships in modalities outside the recently popular areas of immune checkpoint inhibitors or CAR-T therapies.
