Global Private Equity Report 2017

Author: Bain & Company
Date: April 2017

Despite a host of disruptive events that made for volatile markets early in 2016, the private equity (PE) industry posted solid results for the year.

Exit activity was robust, but down from recent record highs, as the boom-year investments have finally been digested. With limited partners recycling gains into the asset class, fund-raising continued unabated. But as asset valuations pushed steadily higher, PE funds are finding it tougher to find and close good deals at prices that will generate satisfactory returns.

In Bain & Company’s Global Private Equity Report 2017, we highlight how some leading PE firms have begun adapting to this demanding environment: They are improving their odds of sourcing opportunities in their deal sweet spot, combining their operational and commercial due diligence to develop a realistic view of a target’s full potential, and crafting distinct “playbooks” they can repeatedly apply to portfolio companies to create value.
