Low number of Q1 VC exits reported

Trouble in VC land?

Unusually low number of Q1 VC exits reported - Silicon Valley Business Journal: "U.S. budget and world economic worries appeared to have made for a very small exit window for venture-backed companies in the first three months of 2013. Only eight venture-backed U.S. companies went public in the period, raising $672 million, according to a report from Thomson Reuters and the National Venture Capital Association. That is far below the 19 IPOs that raised $1.7 billion in the first quarter of last year. The number of public debuts was unchanged from the fourth quarter but the amount raised was down 52 percent."
