Date:1/15/2009

NEW YORK, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Berkery Noyes, a leading middle market investment bank recently released its 2009 Pharma and Healthcare Information and Technology M&A Trends Report. This report analyzes merger and acquisition activity in 2008 and compares it with activity during the two previous years of 2006-2007 for the pharmaceutical and healthcare information and technology markets.

Despite a downturn in the broad economy, Berkery Noyes' analysis shows that M&A in this sector remains robust. The aggregate value of transactions decreased slightly (9%) from 2007 values but a 16% increase in total transaction volume over 2007 levels indicates that a healthy level of activity and interest remains in the sector.

Financial buyers were very active in the first half of the year but decreased their activity significantly during the second half. However, overall financial buyer acquisition levels for full year 2008 were higher than the average level for the past 3 years in terms of both volume and value.

Strategic buyer volume remained strong throughout the year, and even with decreased financial buyer activity later in the year, the second half of 2008 was the most active second half in terms of overall volume for the past 3 years.

A notable trend identified by Berkery Noyes is that while the overall average deal value decreased from previous years (see figure 1 in the linked report), the observed median enterprise deal value increased during 2008 (see figure 2 in the linked report). This may suggest an overall increase in buyer selectivity as well as increasing activity and interest level and a broad upward trend in this market segment.
