FINANCING REBO UND IN Q1


F IR ST Q UA RT E R CL O S E S B ET T E R T HA N P R E VI OU S QU A RT ER
The first quarter of 2009 finished with 77 financings totalling $521 million, up 54% Q/Q (Q4/08 at $338.5 million) and
down 44% Y/Y (Q1/08 at $748.2 million). March was the weakest month in the first quarter at $118.7 million, with
January and February closing at $216.8 million and $185.5 million, respectively. Does this rise in quarterly rise over
Q4/F08 portend what 2009 will look like? W e will be keeping track and discussing trends in our upcoming reports.

Sectors that attracted the most amount of capital in the first quarter are Video ($121 million) and social networking
($60 million), with gaming not far behind at $43 million. W e wonder if the interest in the video sector is a leading
indicator of where the next big innovation is located or companies’ looking to capitalize on the massive traffic online
video is driving?

Among individual companies, Twitter leads the pack in the quarter, raising $35 million, with Synthasite taking the
runners-up at $20 million.
