April 16, 2012

US PE funds raised USD 4.9 billion, which is 35% less than raised in the same period of 2011, according to the NVCA’s latest statistics as reported in the OC Register. The number of funds raising money declined by 9%. “U.S. fund-raising may not be off to a roaring start, but it’s also not stalled in the driveway,” said Laura Kreutzer, managing editor of Dow Jones Private Equity Analyst in the article, suggesting that PE funds have been busy exiting companies and will be able to raise new funds when the returned capital starts to flow.
