Merrill Corporation in partnership with PitchBook presents the 3Q 2017 European PE Breakdown

Pitchbook emea

European PE activity continues to mirror much of what we see in the United States, with deal and exit counts continuing to decrease year-over-year. Much like last quarter, the fundraising cycle remains hot. If the current pace holds, 2017 will mark a new record for capital commitments—even outpacing 2007.

This report offers a full review of all European private equity investment, exits and fundraising activity in the third quarter of 2017.

Highlights of the report:

  • Deal value hits €94.7B across 644 transactions during 3Q, even as annual volume slides
  • The UK is one of the few countries on pace to surpass last year's tally of completed deals

  • With a 40% increase in committed capital relative to the first nine months of 2016, the fundraising cycle has been remarkably strong—is it set for a downturn?
