Private equity investors have sold 116 U.S. companies to strategic buyers so far this year, according to the PitchBook Platform. For these corporate acquisitions, billion dollar deals like the Atlantic Broadband sale have been relatively uncommon, making up only 13% of the corporate acquisitions in 2012 to date. Instead, corporate acquisitions that are $50 million to $250 million in size have bolstered the activity with a 54% share, a solid increase from the size bucket's 36% share of 2011's corporate acquisitions.
