US PE Breakdown

April 11, 2017

The 1Q 2017 US Private Equity Breakdown, sponsored by Merrill Corporation and co-sponsored by Murray Devine, analyzes the trends developing in the year thus far, as well as those that have carried over from 2016, diving into datasets covering deals by sector, size and type. In addition, the report covers PE-backed exit activity and fundraising, sourcing exits by type and fundraising metrics such as median fund sizes and times to close from the PitchBook Platform. 

Report Highlights Include: 

  • PE deal flow by sector and size
  • Analysis of transaction multiples
  • Metrics on exit and fundraising activity
  • Tables highlighting select transactions and most active investors in the first quarter of the year

Note: The report was updated on 6/29/2017 as an error in the non-software IT versus software PE activity chart was discovered; the error has consequently been fixed.
