More PE Dealmaking Expected This Year


May 14, 2015

PE insiders are expecting the availability of buyout financing to increase in the next 12 months, according to a global survey sponsored by RR Donnelley. The buyout sector that is expected to be most popular is Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT), with 26% of industry insiders expecting dealmaking to be steady. It will driven by the “continuous innovations” in this sector.  In contrast, the financial services and energy sectors are not that attractive with 26% and 24% respectively saying that there will be less buyout financing going forward.  On another topic, PE firms expect to do more buying than selling over the next 12 months, although the numbers are close.  The analysts said that 40% of respondents say that private equity firms will do more buying, 32% say that private equity firms will do more selling, and 28% say that private equity firms will do an equal number of both. Their views on the impact of regulation and deal drivers were also polled. (Image source: Donnelley)
