LATTER HALF OF 2009: FORGING FORWARD
DEAL VALUE ON PACE TO MEET NOVEMBER LEVEL
December starts at strong pace: Total transaction value in the Web 2.0 universe for the first week of December is $68.8 million. The number of financings stands at seven, averaging $9.8 million each. In comparison, total capital raised in November was $203.4 million, averaging $11.3 million (18 deals); October was $171.3 million, averaging $6.3 million (27 deals); and September was $232.8 million, averaging $9.0 million (26 deals).

Broad-based sector financing: Video, Gaming, Advertising, Collaboration, and Analytics experienced the most financing activity among our Web 2.0 sector categories in the past three months by number of transactions (six each). Social Networks remain strong with five deals in the past quarter. Infrastructure and Search round out the top three positions at four deals each over the past three months. The $400 million acquisition of Playfish skews the Virtual Worlds segment to the highest total.

Market pull-back abates – universe split between risers and decliners: Twenty-five companies in our universe had positive stock price performances over the past week (for stocks with prices greater than $1), while 22 companies showed negative 1-week returns.
