Adams Street research shows that sponsor-to-sponsor deals have their merits

Mattias de Beau, Adam Street

Research by Adams Street Partners finds no evidence of sponsor-to-sponsor underperformance and that sponsors are a real and relevant source of deal flow for other sponsors. Moreover, such deals appear to offer stable returns with lower losses than non-sponsor deals.

The report, Examining European Sponsor-to-Sponsor Transactions, published at the end of last year, suggests that investor skepticism towards sponsor-led deals could be misplaced, in part due to the limited amount of information available.
