Executive Summary

Highlights from the Q2 2009 review of start-up dealmaking: Fundraising in the biopharma, medical device, and in vitro diagnostics industries totaled $864 million--a 25% increase from Q1 2009--with most of the money, 54% or $465 million, coming out of the device industry, which saw only $127 million the previous quarter. There was one acquisition--PPD paid $14.5 million in cash for Magen BioSciences. In the most significant alliance, valued at up to $527 million, GSK got rights to three compounds from Concert Pharmaceuticals, including two in the preclinical stage, which was the most popular phase of development on Q2 alliances.
