The 2Q 2017 US Private Equity Breakdown, sponsored by Merrill Corporation and co-sponsored by Murray Devine, analyzes how US PE firms have stayed unfazed amid sky-high public equities and an uncertain economic landscape, 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 2Q

Note: On July 18, 2017, the report was updated as there was an error in the depiction of exit activity. On October 3, 2017, the report was further amended as there was an overestimate in the number of active US PE firms. The analysis has consequently been revised as well.
