Press release from: Wilshire Park

Wilshire Park, a leading Venture Capital company, today announced the results of its Second Quarter 2010 Venture Capital Survey.

The Second Quarter 2010 survey analyzed the valuations and terms of venture financings for 236 technology and life science companies that reported raising capital in the second quarter of 2010.

During the second quarter of 2010, up rounds exceeded down rounds 55 percent to 27 percent with 18 percent flat. This was an improvement over the first quarter of 2010, when up rounds exceeded down rounds 49 percent to 32 percent, with 19 percent flat, and the fourth consecutive quarter in which up rounds exceeded down rounds.

An up round is one in which the price per share at which a company sells its stock has increased since its prior financing round. Conversely, a down round is one in which the price per share has declined since a company's prior financing round.

The Wilshire Park Venture Capital Measurements - which measures the change in share price of companies funded during the quarter compared with the share price of their previous financing round - showed a 30 percent average price increase for the quarter, compared to 21 percent in the first quarter of 2010.

The best performing industries in the quarter from a valuation perspective were software, internet, digital media and cleantech. With the continued improvement in venture valuations in the second quarter, and reported improvements in the amount of venture capital invested and liquidity for venture-backed companies in the quarter, there is reason to believe that the venture environment is improving.

Wilshire Park is a brokerage firm that is one of the foremost international investment banking, investment management, and wealth management firms offering a full menu of solutions for corporations, institutions, families and individuals of high net-worth.
