  1. 1. SOFTWARE & SERVICES 11 AUGUST 2009 DAVID SHORE, CFA, MBA 416.860.6784 WEB 2.O WEEKLY david.shore@researchcapital.com Arun Thomas (Associate) 416.860.7666 DOWN RO UNDS EXCEEDED UP ROUNDS (IN THE VALLEY) FOR THE SECOND QUARTER SINCE Q4/03 DO W N RO UN D S E X C E ED E D UP R O UN D S 46% T O 32% Down rounds (defined as when a company is valued less than it was during its previous fundraising) exceeded up rounds 46% to 32%, with 22% flat for the second quarter. This is from a survey by Silicon Valley venture capital firm Fenwick & W est LLP. These numbers are slightly better than Q1/09 when down rounds outpaced up rounds 46% to 25%. According to Fenwick & W est, the last two quarters are the first since Q4/03 in which down rounds exceeded up rounds. As investors (VCs) are busy focusing on portfolio companies, they dedicate less time and money to new investments and in today’s credit markets, where cash is king, there is a great urgency to conserve as much cash as possible. Moreover, venture capitalists are raising less from their investors. W ith stock market valuations improving, as shown in Figure 5, we expect valuations in private investments to improve, albeit gradually. Total capital raised in August (so far) is $94.4 million: Gaming company Turbine, Inc. raised $50 million in August. RichRelevance, a company that offers comment/opinion on ecommerce sites, was a distant second at $12.5 million in August. Total capital raised in July on 31 transactions was $178.7 million, averaging $5.8 million, and June was $196.1 million, averaging $4.9 million. The average for August, month-to-date so far, is $7.4 million.
