Life Sciences Venture Capital Funding Overcomes Record Lows, Outpaces Other Sectors, According to PricewaterhouseCoopers

Despite the decline, Life Sciences investment has outpaced overall venture capital funding since the third quarter of 2008.

In the last quarter of 2009, biotechnology investments totaled $1 billion in 108 deals with another $719 million going into 87 medical device and equipment deals. Biotechnology funding declined by 7 percent year over year, primarily due to a drop in deal activity. However, funding for medical devices increased by 14 percent compared with the same quarter in 2008. This increase reflected gains in both deal activity and deal size.

Investments by Stage of Development
Early-stage funding for the Life Sciences sector exceeded $1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2009 for the first time. Increases in both deal activity and deal size resulted in this rise in early-stage investment. Late-stage funding declined to $717 million in the fourth quarter of 2009, compared with $1 billion in the same quarter in 2008. Late-stage deal activity and deal size both declined in this period.

"The need for venture capital is greater for early-stage companies that don't yet have an exit strategy. They need to funnel assets into the clinic to develop products that will make them attractive acquisitions or IPOs down the line," Lefteroff explained. "Later-stage companies are finding other ways to generate cash, such as partnerships and licensing agreements with larger companies looking to expand their product pipelines."

Funding by Subsegment
Historically, the biotech human subsegment has received a majority of the
