Charted Territory
Although deal volume didn’t hit record levels in April 2013, the values of the deals announced were healthy. Topping the list of the month’s top-10 transactions was the $15.8 billion Thermo Fisher Scientific (NYSE: TMO) acquisition of Life Technologies (NASDAQ: LIFE)—a deal that will most likely lead the year’s top 10 deals, as well. Two other deals reached or surpassed the billion-dollar mark in April: Bayer Healthcare’s (DE: BAYG) $1.1 billion bid for contraceptive device maker Conceptus, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPTS) and Catholic Health Initiatives’ agreement to fund a $1 billion foundation for the non-profit St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System in Houston, Texas. With Wall Street setting new records in May, the M&A momentum continues to build. Stay tuned. .

In the Pipeline
The current surge in the U.S. stock markets is boosting the number of private equity exits from all things pharmaceutical, it seems. Durham, North Carolina-based Quintiles Transnational Holdings made a big splash last week as it raised $947 million in its IPO, backed by Bain Capital LLC and TPG Capital LP. It was the largest IPO of the 11 priced out last week. Now all eyes are turning to Covidien (NYSE: COV), which announced last week that it will spin off its pharma business, Mallinckrodt, on June 28. The medical device maker plans to focus on its devices and supplies. Mallinckrodt will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “MNK.”…..Want to read more news?
