t whether you can afford not to."

Notes to editorsKey regional findings:
United States

  • Revenues of publicly traded biotechs were US$63.7 billion, an 8% increase but down from the 12% growth rate in 2011.
  • R&D spending increased by 7% in 2012, slightly below the 9% growth rate in 2011.
  • Net income increased 34% from US$3.3 billion in 2011 to US$4.5 billion in 2012.
  • M&As involving US-based biotech companies increased 5% in 2012 to US$23.8 billion (after adjusting for the two megadeals in 2011).
  • Total US funding reached US$23.3 billion in 2012, the second-highest total over the past decade, after 2011, when the industry raised US$29.7 billion. When excluding debt financing, capital raised increased by 16% on a year-to-year basis.
  • Europe

  • Revenues of European public biotechs grew 8% in 2012 to US$20.4 billion.
  • R&D expense decreased by 1% in 2012, an indication that many European firms remain in cost-cutting mode.
  • The European biotech industry reached aggregate profitability for the first time in its history in 2012, a largely symbolic milestone given that it was reached in part due to widespread cost-cutting.
  • Capital raised increased by 44% to $US4.2 billion, the highest total since before the global financial crisis. However, this increase was driven entirely by debt financing, which increased by 392% while every other category was down.
  • The value of M&As declined 28% to US$2.9 billion, with the number of deals with announced terms falling to 13 – the lowest level since at least 2005.
