Private equity investors’ response to whipsawing global public markets is more often than not “keep calm and carry on.” That seems to be the case in emerging markets, according to the latest annual data published by the Emerging Markets Private Equity Association. Although it may be somewhat immune from the immediate effects of public market gyrations, the private equity industry doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Macro themes, including slowing growth, currency fluctuations and an abundance of capital could factor more heavily into deal-making in the year ahead. For now, here’s a look at some big takeaways from EMPEA’s data.
Deal Activity Continues in Emerging Markets as Private Equity Investors See Opportunity in Adversity
5 February 2014, Washington, DC – Private equity investment activity held steady for emerging markets in 2013, and despite a sluggish start to the year, deal volume gained momentum in the last six months, according to the Emerging Markets Private Equity Association (EMPEA). This investment activity led to an overall capital flow of US$24 billion in emerging markets last year, representing 883 deals and a 7% decline in capital year-over-year from 2012. While fundraising was down with only 150 funds raising US$36 billion in 2013, a 19% decline in total capital raised compared to 2012, the relatively constant deal volume indicates that private equity investors continue to find investable companies across a diverse array of markets.
