While overall European buyout activity has seen a decline, Q3 figures highlight the resilience of the mid-market, according to the latest unquote" Private Equity Barometer, published in association with SL Capital Partners.
Despite European private equity activity over the three months to September showing a decline, this most recent period shows a level of resilience when compared with previous drops.
The number of transactions slipped by 17% and deal value dropped by almost 20% from the second quarter, from €23.7bn to €19bn. However, looking back at performance since the start of 2013, European private equity activity levels are consistent in their inconsistency, with quarterly aggregate deal value persistently shifting by a least €6bn, making this quarter's €4.7bn dip seem less severe. Indeed, it pales in comparison to the dramatic falls of Q1 and Q3 2013 (of €15.6bn and €11.63bn respectively).
