Companies raising venture capital saw improved valuations for the fourth quarter in a row, according to Fenwick & West‘s Second Quarter 2010 Silicon Valley Venture Capital Survey.

The survey analyzed the venture financing terms for 126 Silicon Valley, Calif.-based companies that reported raising capital in the second quarter of 2010.

The survey found that 55 percent of companies sold equity on more favorable terms, compared to 27 percent who saw less favorable terms than in the previous round of financing. About 18 percent saw valuations remain flat. In the first quarter, up rounds exceeded down rounds by 49 percent to 32 percent, with 19 percent flat.
