Even as private equity activity plateaued last year in Europe, deal value soared to an immense €430 billion. And it wasn't just the buy side—PE-backed exits eclipsed 1,000 for the first time ever, reaching a staggering €181 billion in value, as our 2015 Annual European PE Breakdown shows.
Fittingly, with so much to analyze, we've split our traditional European PE & VC Breakdown into two separate reports. This new report examines PE buyouts, growth deals and similar private investments, excluding venture capital. Given the narrowed focus, it offers expanded coverage and sections, including:
A spotlight on PE deal flow, exits and fundraising in the U.K.
European PE trends across sectors and deal sizes
Analysis of increased U.S. investment in European companies
