From a U.S. regional perspective, the Mid-Atlantic states are on pace to claim the most private equity investments for a third straight year, according to the PitchBook Platform, collecting 19% of 2015 U.S. activity to date—a narrow lead over the West Coast. Here are some more takeaways from our data on the Mid-Atlantic region:
• Mid-Atlantic companies received quite the bump in completed transactions last year, closing 657 deals for a 22% YoY increase. The total nearly reached 2007's peak of 673, though this year's pace is a bit slower.
• Healthcare deals represent only 11% of the region's completed transactions so far in 2015, a low mark since 2010.
• New York continues to be the driving state, amassing 39% of Mid-Atlantic activity so far this year, which would be a decade high.
