"There is optimism in the market for 2014, notwithstanding a slightly weak first quarter" says Jim Keeling

The latest edition of Private Equity Director looks at some of the key topics we think will prove of interest to private equity directors:

  • Both values and volumes of private equity deals decreased in the first quarter of the year but, judging by the evidence from the latest survey, activity is set to accelerate once more in the next 12 months.
  • The years since the global financial crisis started have left their mark on mergers and acquisitions activity. We examine some of the trends and assess the balance between buyers and sellers when it comes to deal making.
  • IPOs are finally making a resurgence, after several years of stagnation. While they may be too risky an opportunity for many equity investors, they point to an increase in confidence which is necessary for a broader-based economic recovery.
