Published on

*Capital Market Activity: *The month of May closed with 20 financings
totalling $327.1 million led by the $200 million investment by Digital Sky
Technologies in Facebook. Excluding the Facebook transaction, May would have
been the lowest month in CY2009. The Facebook transaction aside, four
transactions (One Net Ent., Cyberplex, Peer39 and OpenX), were greater than
or equal to $10 million. The average value in May is $15.6 million (and $6.4
million excluding the Facebook transaction), greater than the average value
for April of $6.2 million on 21 financings. The March average was $6.5
million on 24 financings. If you are aware of any companies that have
recently raised money that are not on our list, please send me an email to
have them added to our database.

*Price Performance: *Most of the companies in our universe had positive
stock price performances over the past week (for stocks with prices greater
than $1) (Figure 12), with 29 companies showing positive returns on the
week. GameOn co. Ltd (3812-TSE) led the group with a 28.2% return, while
eolith Co. Ltd. (A041060-KOSE) had the worst return, dropping 13.7% in the
week.

W ithout this transaction, May would have been the lowest month for financing year-to-date at $127.1 million in 2009. From a sector perspective, excluding the Facebook transaction, Ad Network saw the highest level of activity over the last three months, with Media, Gaming, Video, and Social Network attracting the most level of interest. The other transaction of size that gained much real estate on business news was Disney’s investment in Hulu. Both transactions highlight traditional companies marrying into new business models that are testing the frontiers of how consumers choose and use media.

The Facebook transaction aside, four transactions (One Net Ent., Cyberplex, Peer39, and OpenX) were greater than or equal to $10 million. The average value in May is $15.6 million (and $6.4 million excluding the Facebook transaction), greater than the average value for April of $6.2 million on 21 financings. The March average was $6.5 million on 24 financings. For the last three months, except for four deals (Kaixin001.com, Collective Media, One Net Entertainment, and Facebook), all were below $20 million and a total of six deals were greater than or equal to $15 million.

The Ad Network sector has the next highest totals, with 12 companies raising $99.2 million. W e would note that the Facebook transaction at $200 million has skewed the results significantly in favour of Social Networks. Nevertheless, the following sectors continue to generate the most capital activity over the last few months: Ad Network, Media, Gaming, Video, and Social Networks.

Financings, Last 12 Months Source. Company reports Cumulative total nears $6.8 billion: Overall, on a cumulative basis, W eb 2.0 financings have totalled nearly $6.8 billion, with the majority of the financing coming in late 2007 and the first three quarters of 2008 (Figure 6). Financing for the first quarter of 2009 passed that raised in the fourth quarter of 2008 – reversing the downtrend since the second quarter last year. However, for the period ended Q1/CY09, total capital raised was below the Q1/CY08 level (at $748.2 million). The total capital raise in Q2-to-date was $477.1 million, buoyed by the $200 million Facebook transaction, and is well below Q2/CY08 totals ($1.3 billion). It does not seem likely the Q2/CY09 will be better on a Y/Y basis.
