Canada PE & VC Breakdown: I

The 2016 Canada PE & VC Breakdown: I report, first of our two Canadian publications this year, analyzes trends across private equity and venture capital investment in Canada, assessing how activity has shifted over the past years in terms of sector, size and more. While some datasets of Canadian activity reflect trends similar to what we are observing in other markets, there are some distinct departures that set it apart, such as the boom in VC invested in the first quarter of 2016. Accordingly, the report breaks down such outliers by providing contextual yearly and quarterly activity to better amplify your knowledge of the PE and VC landscape in Canada. In addition, the report delves into PE and VC-backed exits, as well as PE fundraising.

U.S. PE Middle Market Report

The 1Q 2016 U.S. PE Middle Market Report examines private equity investment in the U.S. middle market, delving into activity by year and quarter within all segments. Over the past few quarters, overall PE investment in the U.S. has begun to taper down from unprecedented levels in spite of record fundraising. This pattern has percolated down into the middle market, with the glaring exception of deal flow in the lower middle market, which has never been more robust. Expanding on these trends, the report, sponsored by Madison Capital Funding and in partnership with ACG, focuses analyses across PE exit and fundraising activity to provide a comprehensive overview of PE activity in all segments of the middle market.

European Venture Industry Report

As the global venture slowdown is reflected in a decline in European VC activity, PitchBook's 1Q 2016 European Venture Industry provides a data-driven snapshot of current trends. Is the slowing of investment in Europe primarily due to broader macro concerns rather than the fear of overheating? If U.S. VCs are exhibiting more caution domestically, will they increase their sourcing in a more reasonably priced Europe? Sponsored by Merrill DataSite, the report delves into venture investment by sector and size, as well as stage and region, to provide context to those and other questions. In addition, it features updates on venture-backed exits and fundraising totals.

Private Equity ESG Survey

Environmental, social & governance (ESG) issues still are the subject of considerable debate in the private equity industry. Some early adopters already have well-established programs touting the success of their efforts; others have yet to see true value added by their ESG initiatives. Whatever your perspective, taking the pulse of where the industry stands on ESG topics is key. Sponsored by R.R. Donnelley, PitchBook's 2016 Private Equity ESG Survey draws from survey data aggregated over four years to assess dealmakers' attitudes toward ESG matters, as well as the level of concrete action. Given the population of respondents, this latest survey in particular highlights how smaller PE firms are grappling with ESG issues, yielding some intriguing results in comparison to prior years' results, which were skewed toward larger fund managers.
