Private Equity Activity Set to Rebound in 2015

The study analyzes more than 13,000 private placement deals in the financial services industry between 2007 and 2014. The deals are analyzed based on various parameters, such as buyer type, seller type, buyer revenue range, seller revenue range, target revenue range, transaction value range, and average deal size. Geographically, the study is segmented into 5 regions, namely North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Africa and the Middle East. Each region is analyzed separately, and buyer profile, seller profile, deal rationale, and a note on investment climate have been provided. A few details about exit transactions have also been supplied.

Executive Summary

-With the increasing availability of exit opportunities, as a result of soaring valuations, and the relative ease of raising funds when compared to previous years, post the financial crisis, the private equity (PE) landscape changed in 2014. Limited partners (LPs) are willing to invest in PE funds that have an excellent track record as exit-related distributions can now be reverted as committed capital to PE funds. However, deal making for the PE industry is muted, with financial services (FS), in particular, witnessing a significant decline. This is due to various reasons, including un-attractive valuations, increased complexity, and the poor performance of the FS industry.
-Private placement (PP) in FS in North America continues to rank the highest in terms of deal volume, followed by Asia-Pacific and Europe. However, Asia-Pacific ranks the highest in terms of deal value, followed by Europe and North America.
-Large-value deals in FS have declined considerably since 2010; however, with the significant availability of dry powder and easily accessible low-cost debt, a few high-value PP deals are expected as FS companies stock up capital to meet regulatory requirements in 2016.
- While North America may continue to be the hub of PE deal-making activity after recovering from the 2008 crisis, Europe may drive PE deal making in the FS industry due to the need for capital and restructuring activities. However, PE investors will be cautious and selective while making investments in Europe. Asia-Pacific, Africa, and Latin America will continue to drive PE activity in their large untapped markets, while more information transparency will help drive activity in the Middle East.
