Date:8/15/2012

NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Venture capital (VC) funding in the Life Sciences sector, which includes the Biotechnology and Medical Device industries, decreased 39% in dollars and 22% in number of deals during the second quarter of 2012 from the same quarter of last year, according to a new PwC US report, "Dollar drought," that includes data from the PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP/National Venture Capital Association MoneyTree™ Report, based on data from Thomson Reuters.

Venture capitalists invested a total of $1.4 billion during the second quarter, the lowest level since the fourth quarter of 2010. Deal volume was also down, dropping 6 percent from Q1 to 174 deals. When compared to a year ago, dollars invested into Life Sciences companies during Q2 of 2012 decreased 39 percent while the number of deals declined 22 percent from the $2.3 billion invested in 223 deals during the second quarter of 2011.

For all sectors, venture capitalists invested $7 billion in 898 deals in Q2 2012, a decrease of 12 percent in dollars invested and a 15 percent decline in deals, compared to $8 billion going into 1,057 deals in the second quarter of 2011. The Life Sciences share of total venture capital dollars invested declined to 20 percent in Q2, a nine percent decrease from Q1 2012 to the lowest level since the third quarter of 2002.

"The long time horizon often required for a liquidity event, regulatory challenges, and large amount of capital often needed to fund life science companies likely contributed to this sector's investment decline during the past four quarters," said Tracy T. Lefteroff, global managing partner of the venture capital practice at PwC US.
