Private Equity and Venture Capital-Backed IPOs
PE and VC-backed IPO exits jump sharply
The number of private equity and venture capital-backed IPO exits reached 442 in 2017, a jump of 43% on the year - a big improvement from the previous two years of decline. That was matched by a 21% increase in the capital raised by PE and VC-backed companies to USD 64.7 billion, again the first increase in three years. That solid performance held the PE and VC IPO exit volume share of the overall IPO market at 26%.
However, a 25% fall in PE-backed capital raising prompted the combined PE and VC value share drop to 31% in 2017 from 37% in 2016. Cross-border PE and VC-backed IPO exits raised USD 8.6 billion from 24 deals in 2017, up from 17 deals and USD 13.3 billion the previous year.
