B&E Indicators

Issue Date - 23/06/2011
PE deal momentum continues in 2011
Although Indian PE activity got off to a slow start in 2011 (with only $800 million in recorded deals in the first two months of 2011), it picked up in March. In fact, the first quarter of 2011 ended with more than $1.5 billion in deal value. There were 95 PE deals in Q1 2011 against 64 deals in Q4 2010, representing a 53% growth in deal volume. Even on a y-o-y basis, the deal volume in Q1 2011 was about 50% higher than that in Q1 2010.

Small is beautiful
Fewer large deals (with deal value greater than $50 million) were recorded in the first quarter of 2011 compared to the previous quarters. In fact, only five large deals were announced during the first quarter of 2011 against an average of around eight deals recorded in the previous five quarters. Further, the share of such deals in the total deal volume dropped significantly from 10% in Q4 2010 to nearly 5% in Q1 2011.
