With a couple of recent notable PE deals involving companies from Florida, we decided to highlight the U.S. regional data in the PitchBook Platform. Here are some key points on PE activity in the U.S. Southeast, which is on pace this year for its second most deals since 2008:
The percentage of B2B investments in the overall region's deal flow has increased each of the past four years (from 33% in 2010 to 42% in 2014 to date). B2C, on the other hand, is accounting for a decade-low 17% of activity this year.
Florida, the largest player in the region, is tracking to increase deal count for the third straight year. Elsewhere, North Carolina has seen its percentage of activity drop each year since 2011, from 22% then to 16% this year so far.
When it comes to exits, SBOs have jumped this year (already up 33% from 2013), while corporate acquisitions and IPOs are behind last year's pace.
