Monday Biotech Deal Review: July 19, 2010

Lots of deals this week. Some good news, some bad news. On the good news front, a steady volume of securities and M&A activity is continuing through the summer; and one Canadian firm benefits from the U.S. Defense Departments exploration of RNAi products as anti-virals. On the other hand front, though, a licensing option expired, a liquidation proceeded and marketing rights were voluntarily surrendered. See who’s who after the jump…

This week saw several interesting deals, including an $85+ million exit for Sentinelle, some “bio-bucks” made good for Cipher, a licensing deal for Amorfix’s vCJD technology, a $10 million malaria deal for BC-based Artepharm and a new name (Medwell Capital) to go along with BioMS’ new business model.

Monday Biotech Deal Review: June 28, 2010

We follow a number of trends here at the blog, and two of them showed up as Canadian deals this week. Add those to the Biovail-Valeant merger, Æterna’s offering and a whole slew of commercial deals, and it’s been a pretty big week in Canadian deal-making.

Monday Biotech Deal Review: June 7, 2010

This week saw a resurgence of deal activity on the Canadian landscape. Lots of good news here, including Resverlogix’s [$9.2m] haul and a $30m exit for Montreal’s Resonant Medical.  Not all was sunny though: Cynapsus downsized its unit price and Amorfix just downsized, while the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act got its own workout (har) this week.

Monday Biotech Deal Review: May 17, 2010

Lots of quarterly earnings announcements this week means a dip in deal activity. Still plenty of interesting stuff, though, including a new partnership and new listing plans for Tekmira. Meanwhile, for Medicago it’s graduation day, with a $10m present standby deal from Mom and Dad Yorkville Advisors on offer as it takes its symbol to the TSX big board from the venture exchange.

Monday Biotech Deal Review: December 7, 2009

This was a fairly busy week for Canadian biotech deals, including a new brain-y collaboration for MaRS; peace at Patheon; some overallotment and some underallotment; some diversification by Canadian pharma (even if not on quite the scale of Pfizer’s deal with Protalix); and some trans-Atlantic acquisitiveness of a Canadian company’s own devicing [sic., sorry].  Don’t stop now… Read more of this post

Monday Biotech Deal Review: October 25, 2009

B&W_BigNickelA very busy deal week coincided with a very busy work week (for those of us with day jobs), so allow me a particularly grateful thank-you to Jacob Cawker, who’s been an invaluable help with the Deal Review this and the last several weeks.  After the jump, licenses both inbound, outbound and just tied up (optioned); securities extended and accelerated (plus an actual common share offering, with the word “units” banished for one special week); and last but not least, a good volume of Canadian M&A (M&Eh?) from private to public to “just browsing.”  Read more of this post
