Recent executive-level company changes and promotions in the biopharma, medical device and diagnostics industries.
In the fourth quarter, medical device companies raised $1.1 billion, a third of which was represented by follow-on public offerings. Acquisitions were strong overall, holding steady with 15 transactions - the same as Q3 - but only slightly less in money paid, $6 billion. In vitro diagnostic/research companies, like medical device, also ended 2010 on a high note, with funding totaling $511 million in Q4. The majority of the money spent on IVD/research acquisitions came from Thermo Fisher Scientific's buy of Dionex for $2.1 billion.
