The article discusses the prospects of investment companies in the U.S. pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets. This year, secondaries for the sectors total $1.28 billion on 18 deals, up 18% from $1.05 billion on 13 deals in the same period last year, according to Thomson Financial. Still, unlike the market for pharmaceutical and biotechnology initial public offerings, which has seen its own slowdown, some follow-on deals will get done over the next few months because investors are comfortable with the track record of the companies involved.
