Web 2.0 Weekly - 09-05-12

Published on

In the first week of May, $38.9 million was raised on seven deals. Over the last three months, four sectors, Media, Ad Network, Video, and Social Network, have seen the most activity, bringing in a combined $209 million on 25 transactions. Overall, capital market activity has trended downwards on the back of a declining economy and lower valuations. With any sustainable certainty and stability in the public markets, we would expect to see activity pick up as more institutions participate in private placements. Seven companies raised $38.9 million in the first week of May. EveryZing, a company in the video search sector, raised $8.3 million, followed by Gist at $6.8 million. All transactions except one (Resonate Networks) were greater than or equal to $5 million. The companies in our universe had mixed stock price performances over the past week (for stocks with prices greater than $1) (Figure 6), with 22 companies showing positive returns on the week. Tree.com (TREE-NASDAQ) led the group with a 27.5% return, while Beyond Commerce, Inc. (BYOC-OTCBB) had the worst return, dropping 21.8% in the week.
