The IN VIVO Blog Selects First Annual 'Deal of the Year'
Date:1/8/2009

NORWALK, Conn., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The readers of The IN VIVO Blog, which provides news, insights and analysis on the biopharmaceutical and medical device industries, have selected a Deal of the Year for 2008 -- Alnylam Pharmaceuticals' RNA interference alliance with Takeda Pharmaceuticals.

More than 2,500 reader votes were cast in this inaugural competition, and Alnylam/Takeda led the polling from start to finish among the 13 nominees selected by The IN VIVO Blog's writers and editorial team at FDC-Windhover, an Elsevier company.

"In a time when investment capital is frozen, winning biotechs are figuring out ways of non-dilutively funding their operations -- not simply by avoiding selling cheap equity but avoiding the sale of product rights as well," said Roger Longman, Managing Director, FDC-Windhover. "Alnylam has managed to monetize its technology base without fundamentally restricting its own product opportunities or diluting its investors -- with its Takeda deal a perfect example of how it pulls off this impressive feat."

"The deal allows Alnylam to end the year with approximately $500 million in cash and sets the RNAi pioneer up for pipeline building down the road. And as for Takeda: it's now the sole big RNAi player in Japan and cements this pharma's place among the most active and creative dealmakers of 2008," Longman said.
