Venture-backed company exit activity was driven by a record-breaking M&A market and the biggest quarter for IPOs since the third quarter of 2000. The fourth quarter ended with 32 venture-backed IPOs, more than double the number of IPOs seen during the third quarter of 2010 The quarterly volume was driven by 17 Chinese companies funded by U.S. venture capital funds that went public on US exchanges. For full-year 2010, there were 72 venture-backed IPOs, the biggest year for activity since 2004. Over 400 acquisitions were completed during full year 2010, the biggest year, by number of deals, for venture- backed M&A exits since records began in 1985.

In 2010 Navasota Group saw the movement from abysmal to viable in the venture-backed IPO. The number of offerings has improved in large part due to Chinese venture-backed companies going public on U.S. exchanges.

The record acquisition level illustrates a recognition by larger corporations that there is considerable innovation within these venture- backed companies, while VCs and founders are acknowledging the acquisition as the smoother exit. However, volume is not the only important measure of the health of the venture exit market. There are also improvements in IPO performance and acquisition prices at the end of 2010 as well, and this momentum will continue in 2011 for even better returns.

There were 32 venture-backed IPOs valued at $3.6 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010, almost three times the number of IPOs seen during full year of 2009. Seventeen of the fourth quarter offerings were Chinese based venture-backed companies. The offerings spanned a diverse set of industries.

Half of the 32 IPO exits for the quarter were outside of Information Technology and Life Sciences, accounting for a total of $1.7 billion. Beijing, China-based SinoTech Energy, Ltd. (CTE), a provider of enhanced oil recovery services, was the largest offering outside of technology and life sciences, raising $167.8 million on NASDAQ.

For the full year 2010, 26 number of companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and 46 listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange.

Of the 32 IPOs in the fourth quarter, 20 were trading at or above their offering prices as of 12/31/2010. 42 venture-backed companies are currently filed for an initial public offering with the SEC.

As of December 31, 2010 Navasota Group saw 88 venture-backed M&A deals were reported for the fourth quarter, 36 which had an aggregate deal value of $5.7 billion. The average disclosed deal value was $157.7 million up 18 percent from Q3 2010. Fourth quarter volume marks a 21 percent decrease from the third quarter of 2010, but brings the total number of venture-backed M&A exits to 420 - the largest full year for M&A exits since records began in 1985. The previous record was set in 2007, when 380 venture-backed companies were sold.

The information technology sector led the venture-backed M&A landscape, with 72 deals and a disclosed total dollar value of $2.8 billion. Within this sector, internet specific and computer software companies accounted for the bulk of the targets with 32 and 21 transactions, respectively, across these sector subsets.

Deals bringing in the top returns, those with disclosed values greater than four times the venture investment, accounted for 45 percent of the total during full year 2010. Venture-backed M&A deals returning less than the amount invested accounted for 22 percent of the annual total.
