Where Private Medtech Investments Dollars Went in 2010

Overall in 2010, caution was the watchword for private investors, placing fewer dollars in fewer medtech deals compared to 2009. A total of $1.86 billion in private money was raised by medical device companies in 2010, a big drop from the $2.86 billion placed in the industry in 2009. Deal volume was down commensurately; there were 139 private medical device financings, compared to 207 in 2009. Investment dollars were apportioned, for the most part, in the usual fashion, with the largest proportion going into cardiovascular deals, followed by orthopedics. There were some surprises however, as a few categories, once avoided like the plaque, showed new investor interest.
