Distributors Bringing in Private Equity Investments
March 21, 2013
Not usually the flashiest of companies, but important all the same, Distribution and Wholesale companies have received quite a bit of private equity capital recently. According to the PitchBook Platform, 281 Distributors/Wholesalers headquartered in the U.S. or Canada have received PE backing since the beginning of 2008. 69 of those deals have taken place since the beginning of 2012. Texas has led the deal activity in the U.S. since 2008 with an 11% share. Following close behind are California and New York, which accounted for 8% and 7% of the activity, respectively.
