- The average value of transactions (global) declined from $ million in 2010 to $ million as of 2013. Europe witnessed the steepest decline, with the average deal value coming down from $ million in 2010 to $ million as of 2013.

Private Placements in the Packaged Food Industry

In terms of number of transactions, the North American region occupies about X % of all transactions over the 2007 to 2013 period. The region is behind APAC, which has higher activity in the PEVC space. AboutX% of all transactions have been from APAC. Europe accounts for about X %, and the remaining X % is from Middle East and Africa and LATAM and Caribbean.
On the deal value front, APAC has performed better than all the other regions. Considering that the industry in APAC is in the growth phase, the private placement and mergers and acquisitions (M&A ) are expected to witness strong activity.
