In our annual review of start-up dealmaking, we find again that licensed cancer products represented the bulk of alliances. Nonprofits sourced many of these oncology assets.
The year might have started off slow for start-up fundraising ($398.7 million in Q1), but during the second quarter of 2013 life science companies rallied and earned a whopping $907.2 million. There were several reverse licensing arrangements as well as alliances involving large molecule-focused start-ups.
Q2 2013 biopharma financing increased 139% to $11 billion over Q1’s $4.6 billion, thanks mostly to two huge transactions by Valeant to fund its $8.7 billion takeover of ophthalmics player Bausch & Lomb, the company’s largest acquisition to date. Options and antibody-drug conjugates featured prominently in the alliances.
Derived from Strategic Transactions, Elsevier Business Intelligence’s premium source for tracking life sciences deal activity, the Dealmaking column is a survey of recent health care transactions listed by relevant industry segment – In Vitro Diagnostics, Medical Devices, and Pharmaceuticals – and then categorized by type – Acquisition, Alliance, or Financing.
