The last month of 2016 saw a final flurry of medtech M&A activity as companies rushed to seal deals before the New Year arrived. Medtech Insight's M&A data tracker recorded twice as many deals in December compared to the previous month, but that was not enough to boost the year's tally, which fell behind 2015.
Biogen signed a $2bn deal with UPenn focused on gene therapy; Thermo Fisher made its second major acquisition this year, paying over $4bn for FEI. Early-stage venture funding and FOPOs made up more than half of the month's total $1.6bn in biopharma financing, and big debt offerings from Wright Medical and Teleflex dominated device financing.
