US Buyouts Crawling Back


August 30, 2012

A slowly improving debt market is helping buyouts climb up from low bottom, reports the WSJ. Private-equity firms have acquired about USD 64.7 billion worth of US companies since January, the highest amount year-to-date since 2007, according to data provider Dealogic cited in the WSJ article. It is not clear how long the trend will continue say the experts in the text. They suggest most upcoming deals will be sub-5 billion dollar transactions.   (Image source: WSJ)
