How are the current economic and political climates affecting how private equity investors are sourcing and closing deals?
Each quarter, we survey PE investors to get an inside look at deal terms, multiples and investor sentiment. In this edition, which normally would have included only those transactions in 1Q 2017, we decided to extend our scope, including deals completed through May 23 to make the datasets timelier and ultimately more useful.
75% of survey respondents reported forward-12-month (FTM) target-company revenue growth of at least 10% in 2Q 2017
Monitoring fees remain seldom used. Just 19% of PE deals included monitoring fees through the first five months of the year
68% of managers believe that current deal multiples are within a range that allows for typical PE returns, slightly down from last quarter
