Haynes and Boone's Jason Villalba in the Dallas Business Journal: Follow the money: DBJ’s quarterly private investment analysis

04/30/2010

Dallas Business Journal, April 23, 1010

Fueled by one big transaction, private investments in local businesses hit the highest levels for the first quarter of a year since the Dallas Business Journal began surveying investors a decade ago. But venture capital infusions in early-stage area companies remained tepid.

Local companies raised a total of $439.7 million between Jan. 1 and March 31, according to the DBJ’s exclusive survey of local private investments. That compares with $271.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2009 and $85.6 million for the first quarter of last year.

Haynes and Boone Partner Jason Villalba comments on the outlook for private investment in 2010.
