PitchBook publishes latest European PE Breakdown report

After a bustling 2018, Q1 European PE deal activity softened, but several GPs seized opportunities to take companies private in the lower-priced public equity environment, according to the latest edition of PitchBook’s European PE Breakdown report. 

As well as highlighting a significant increase in software buyouts during the quarter's, which accounted for 15.4 per cent of all deals – nearly triple 2014's full-year total – this edition of the report also spotlights the quarter's take-private buyouts and imminent structural shifts within private equity will likely see the strategy gain favour among investors. 

In addition, PitchBook’s analysts expand on the continent's exit and fundraising activity, accounting for the dearth of PE-backed IPOs and mega-funds and surging proportion of SBOs and middle-market vehicles.
