LDC Regional Mid-Market Barometer

After a slow start to the year, the UK gained momentum as 2013 drew to a close - but not all regions profited equally, according to the latest unquote" Regional Mid-market Barometer, published in association with LDC.

It may not have been an especially pronounced recovery, but 2013 certainly seems to have marked the start of an upward trend for private equity in the UK's mid-cap engine room. On full-year numbers, the growth is almost imperceptible, with just one more deal having completed than the previous year (223 versus 2012's 222). But this masks the underlying trends somewhat. Deal activity in 2012 was heavily skewed towards a very strong first half, which then tailed off. In 2013, there has been a steady growth in deal numbers in each quarter, from 48 in the first three months of the year to 61 in the last. Value too was up on the full-year, but again modestly, from £6.35bn in 2012 to £6.6bn.
