            Private equity exits via IPOs in 2017

            In this latest report, we analyse the key deal terms of private equity exits across both the London Main Market and AIM in 2017.  

            Our original Private Equity Exits via IPO report (2016) illustrated how the trend for private equity exits via the public markets flourished in London, both on the Main Market and AIM. In the face of the political and economic uncertainty associated with the Brexit referendum and general election in 2017, the London markets endured as an attractive venue for private equity investors to achieve liquidity. In this revised report, we analyse the key deal terms of private equity exits across both the London Main Market and AIM in 2017.
