     NUMBER OF VENTURE-BACKED COMPANIES ACQUIRED IN THE FIRST
              QUARTER OF 2003 DECLINED TO 1996 LEVELS

May 13, 2003, New York -- According to Thomson Venture Economics and the National
Venture Capital Association, 65 venture-backed companies were acquired through merger or
acquisition for a total disclosed value of $1.34 billion in the first quarter of 2003. These figures
represent a decline from the fourth quarter of 2002, when 83 companies attracted $1.62 billion.

Mirroring conditions in the broader, non-venture-backed, domestic M&A market, the decline in
the first quarter represents the lowest dollar total since the first quarter of 1996, when 27
companies were acquired for $1.23 billion. The uncertainty of economic and global conditions
served to further depress an already lethargic exit atmosphere, according to venture capital
industry experts.

“It continues to be the same story we have seen for the last eight quarters in terms of exit
conditions for venture-backed companies,” said John Taylor, Vice President of the National
Venture Capital Association. “Compared with other industry metrics, the number of venture-
backed companies being acquired has held up reasonably well. However, the lower average
valuations are the result of a changing mix of successful growth-oriented acquisitions and the
exits of challenged companies.”

Notwithstanding the general state of decline, some industry sectors saw sharp increases in total
disclosed transaction values. In the first quarter, the IT Services sector, with 5 deals valued at
$287.3 million, saw the largest surge over the fourth quarter when 6 companies netted $6.2
million. However, this large spike was due almost entirely to a single deal – the Nextel
Communications acquisition of NeoWorld, Inc, a 3D graphics design firm. This $276 million
transaction was the largest of the quarter.

Biotechnology also made a strong advance from last quarter’s single undisclosed value deal. This
quarter 6 biotechnology targets accounted for $199.2 million in transaction value. Included here
was the fourth largest deal of the quarter - the $163.1 million acquisition of pharmaceutical
company U.S. Bioservices Corporation.

Software companies, though still thoroughly dominating the M&A picture, also experienced a
decline over the quarter. Twenty-two deals closed for a total of $566.11 million, a fall from the
previous quarter’s total of 36 deals and $655.39 million in value. However, four of the top ten
deals in the first quarter did come from this sector.

While California, the Greater New York area, and the Southeast remained atop the list, the Great
Plains region experienced a surprisingly strong quarter. Total deal value for targets in this region
nearly quadrupled over that of the entire 2002 period. In the first quarter 5 companies were
acquired for $160 million. In all of 2002, 8 Great Plains targets brought in $43 million.

Number of Venture-Backed Companies Acquired in the First Quarter of 2003 Declined to 1996 Levels

  • 1. Contacts: Emily Mendell, The Weiser Group for NVCA, 610-359-9609, emendell@weisergroup.com Joshua Radler, Thomson Venture Economics, 973-353-7139, joshua.radler@tfn.com NUMBER OF VENTURE-BACKED COMPANIES ACQUIRED IN THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2003 DECLINED TO 1996 LEVELS May 13, 2003, New York -- According to Thomson Venture Economics and the National Venture Capital Association, 65 venture-backed companies were acquired through merger or acquisition for a total disclosed value of $1.34 billion in the first quarter of 2003. These figures represent a decline from the fourth quarter of 2002, when 83 companies attracted $1.62 billion. Mirroring conditions in the broader, non-venture-backed, domestic M&A market, the decline in the first quarter represents the lowest dollar total since the first quarter of 1996, when 27 companies were acquired for $1.23 billion. The uncertainty of economic and global conditions served to further depress an already lethargic exit atmosphere, according to venture capital industry experts. Venture-Backed M&A Activity by Quarter, 2000-2003 Total Quarter Deals Value ($M) 2000-1 93 23,809.36 2000-2 91 26,380.42 2000-3 72 7,982.59 2000-4 55 10,150.65 2000 311 68,323.01 2001-1 72 80,75.30 2001-2 93 3,382.49 2001-3 89 3,733.32 2001-4 90 1,946.15 2001 344 17,137.26 2002-1 68 1,629.20 2002-2 79 1,958.53 2002-3 76 2,616.79 2002-4 83 1,619.50 2002 306 78,24.02 2003-1 65 1342.39 Thomson Venture Economics/ National Venture Capital Association
  • 2. “It continues to be the same story we have seen for the last eight quarters in terms of exit conditions for venture-backed companies,” said John Taylor, Vice President of the National Venture Capital Association. “Compared with other industry metrics, the number of venture- backed companies being acquired has held up reasonably well. However, the lower average valuations are the result of a changing mix of successful growth-oriented acquisitions and the exits of challenged companies.” Notwithstanding the general state of decline, some industry sectors saw sharp increases in total disclosed transaction values. In the first quarter, the IT Services sector, with 5 deals valued at $287.3 million, saw the largest surge over the fourth quarter when 6 companies netted $6.2 million. However, this large spike was due almost entirely to a single deal – the Nextel Communications acquisition of NeoWorld, Inc, a 3D graphics design firm. This $276 million transaction was the largest of the quarter. Biotechnology also made a strong advance from last quarter’s single undisclosed value deal. This quarter 6 biotechnology targets accounted for $199.2 million in transaction value. Included here was the fourth largest deal of the quarter - the $163.1 million acquisition of pharmaceutical company U.S. Bioservices Corporation.

Twenty-two deals closed for a total of $566.11 million, a fall from the previous quarter’s total of 36 deals and $655.39 million in value. However, four of the top ten deals in the first quarter did come from this sector. While California, the Greater New York area, and the Southeast remained atop the list, the Great Plains region experienced a surprisingly strong quarter. Total deal value for targets in this region nearly quadrupled over that of the entire 2002 period. In the first quarter 5 companies were acquired for $160 million. In all of 2002, 8 Great Plains targets brought in $43 million. The National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) represents over 450 venture capital and private equity organizations.
