Part 3: The future of biotechs M&As: The investors' perspective

19:00 EDT 2 Jun 2009 | PharmaTelevision

Dr Fintan Walton, CEO of PharmaVentures, asked a panel of leading industry fund managers how they are tailoring funds to ensure maximum return and the future of biotech M&A. They discuss:

· Benefits of the current investment strategies used and new models for M&A
· Big pharma - how they use their cash in M&A and acquisition and licensing of products
· At what stage deals are being financed, and who is investing in early stage companies
· Relationships with investors on risk sharing
· When the "IPO window will re-open"
· Exit strategies, and where the most successful have been coming from

This panel discussion was the 3rd in a series filmed by PharmaTelevision at the thought leadership conference, "Financing and Deal Making in the New Landscape", held by PharmaVentures and UKTI at The British Consulate General in Cambridge, MA.
