Apr 13, 2015
Check out the Q1 2015 Global Private Equity Deal Multiples and Trends Report presented by Pitchbook and Hilco Global

Working with Pitchbook, Hilco Global has published survey results on the 1Q 2015 PE Global Deal Multiples and Trends. The results offer a detailed picture of current deal structuring and investment multiples in the PE industry. Deal-making is examined through several lenses, including EBITDA and revenue multiples, debt-to-equity ratios, closing times and fees.

Some key findings from the report include:

  • PE firms are targeting growing companies: Almost half of all responses for Q4 deals were for companies with more than 10% growth in TTM revenue
  • The median debt percentage for Q4 surveyed transactions was 47%
  • Senior debt comprised over 65% of the capital structure in Q4 2014, compared to just 8% equity usage
  • Transaction fees continue to fall: Only 19% of Q4 survey responses included monitoring fees and 50% included transaction fees
