Value judgement: What’s driving the growth in UK ‘take-private’ deals?

In this week’s newsletter, John Stephan, head of global M&A at BDO discusses the continued growth of UK ‘take-private’ deals with Private Equity Wire’s Paul Bryant. And as Stephan points out, much of that growth has been driven by a narrowing in the gap between public and private market company valuations.

We also focus on new research from Refinitv which reveals that Q3 was the strongest quarter on record for Europe VC activity, with EUR5.9 billion invested across 296 fundraising rounds, while in deal news, we report on The Carlyle Group and T&D Holdings acquisition of a majority interest in Fortitude Re from AIG for USD1.8bn.

And don’t forget to register for our forthcoming webinar on 4 December in conjunction with TMF Group – The Changing Face of Investor reporting – which will see Private Equity Wire Editor-in-Chief, James Williams discussing a variety of investor reporting topics with TMF Group Luxembourg Head of Client Services, Ramon van Heudson, Hereford Capital Managing Director, Bjorn Gravsholt and bfinance Director, Private Equity, Sweta Chattopadhyay.
