EMEA Private Equity Market Snapshot: Issue 3 2014
By Silvina Aldeco-Martinez, Paul Bishop and Ian Hazard
Welcome to the third issue of EMEA Private Equity Market Snapshot, a quarterly publication focusing on the private equity (PE) market in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).
In this issue, in addition to examining how the EMEA PE market as a whole performed in the first half of 2014, we focus on two notable trends. Firstly, we look at recent growth in the Spanish market and the decline seen in the French market.
We then analyze the increased interest Asian private equity investors have shown in acquiring EMEA target companies since the financial crisis, and explore some of the potential driving forces behind this trend.
In the appendix of each issue is a data pack which provides a top-down view of the market compared to its position at the same point in time last year. Included in the data pack are charts showing transaction numbers and volumes among EMEA-based PE and venture capital (VC) targets, transaction volumes and deal counts undertaken by EMEA-based PE firms and VCs, and sector-level multiples for private equity and the region’s broader merger and acquisition market.
