Deal value has plummeted 66% to its lowest level in almost four years, according to the latest unquote" Private Equity Barometer. Indeed, deal value in Q1 2013 stood at €8.9bn, down from €25.7bn in the final quarter of last year. This is the lowest quarterly figure recorded since Q2 2009.
However, the collapse in deal value is largely due to the €1bn+ buyout market returning to its post-crisis norm, following a string of mega-buyouts last year.
