Ten days ago I wrote that the dynamics highlighted by this year’s Catalyst Pharma Fast 50 show the sector is prime for further acquisitions and private equity investment.

Today Quotient Clinical, one of the companies which features in the Pharma Fast 50, announced it has acquired US-based SeaView Research for its complementary customer portfolio and to provide a broader set of services to Quotient's existing client base. This also establishes an operational footprint in the US for Quotient.

This is one of the first mid-market pharma acquisitions of the year involving UK companies; however, there is certainly more to come.
