Biopharma Dealmaking Quarterly Statistics, Q1 2013

A look at the financing, M&A, and alliance activity January-March 2013

Executive Summary

Biopharma financing reached $4.6 billion in Q1 2013, exceeding Q4 2012’s $4.2 billion total, mostly through follow-on public offerings, which made up 47% of the total funding. Conversely, M&A was on the decline with 18 completed transactions together valued at $4.8 billion, the lowest quarter since 2009. The $5.5 billion potential deal value aggregate for alliances more than doubled from the previous quarter, mainly due to Biogen Idec’s $3.25 billion buy of Elan's share of multiple sclerosis drug Tysabri.
