The U.S. South has just surpassed 2013 in terms of completed PE deals, and with a strong finish to 4Q, the region could record one of its most active years since 2007, according to the PitchBook Platform. Here are a few highlights from our data on the region:
The B2B sector has already had over 180 completed deals this year, a decade high. The space has had a fairly steady increase in deal share, as well, rising from 29% in 2010 to 40% in 2014.
The energy industry, on the other hand, is claiming just 22% of PE activity this year, a low mark for the decade.
Texas continues to be the region's driver, but its neighbors have been growing their PE presence. Tennessee, which had a transaction close this week, is tracking for a state record in deal count and share in 2014.
