Healthcare and IT: McGladrey Quarterly PE Deal Flow Profiles
November 12, 2014
With $11.7 billion invested in healthcare through 79 transactions, 3Q saw both deal count and value decrease relative to the first half of 2014. However, 3Q is typically the quietest part of the year, and moreover, in terms of value, 1H exhibited a torrid pace of healthcare deal-making. New regulations and demographic changes are also effecting changes across the healthcare investment landscape. Healthcare: McGladrey Quarterly Private Equity Deal Flow Profile, one of the latest installments in McGladrey's and PitchBook's collaboration, explores these issues and overall trends in deal flow and value, exit activity and more.

Meanwhile, information technology may fall short of 2013's $99 billion invested through 400 transactions, yet last year's tally was swollen by several mega-deals. Compared to years prior, 2014 may yet exceed 2012's mark of $63.4 billion in capital invested, with high multiples apparently not affecting deal-making unduly. In the IT Quarterly Deal Flow Profile, McGladrey professionals deliberate on that trend as well as the role of debt and public markets, looking ahead to 2015.
