The development of devices applied to healthcare received double the number of financing rounds in 2014, with 51 deals, compared to 21 in 2013. The sector is taking shape and there is still a long way to go before it reaches maturity. Proof of this is the small but growing number of acquisitions by corporations.

En este año 2014 se han realizado 51 rondas por un importe total de $538M cifra que supera por mucho las 24 operaciones por un importe de $200M  realizadas el año anterior.

“Además este año ha crecido también el peso que las rondas venture tienen sobre el total de rondas respecto al año pasado, lo que nos muestra que el sector medical devices es un sector en expansión, en el que las empresas están haciendo grandes  esfuerzos por crecer e introducir nuevos productos al mercado, en un mercado que se caracteriza por una fuerte regulación que requiere de una gran cantidad de recursos” Comenta Diego Gutierrez de Abra Invest.

The information related to these companies is characterized by their lack of transparency and heterogeneity; thus, it is necessary to develop an advanced analysis which is as much predictive as prescriptive and is developed in a natural language custom, suitable to obtain greater clarity and knowledge of the investment scope.

Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

¿What are my competitors' priorities, strategies and expansion plans? Who's my competition? Which competitor is most likely to grow at a higher rate?
Which areas of activity/business models will receive the most investment? Which sectors are most attractive to investors?
Which companies are going to experience the most growth in the near future? Which companies are most likely to receive investment or be acquired?
