Invest Europe's transaction value analysis presents you with a brand new analysis of Venture and Buyout statistics. The report looks at the transaction value of Venture-backed and Buyout investments, including equity provided by the fund, co-investments, and leverage.
The transaction value is defined as the sum of the amount invested by the Venture Capital or Buyout fund, the amount invested by co-investors, and the leverage provided by banks or other sources, if applicable.
The findings are backing up our annual activity statistics published last year with record levels of investments for buyout, as well as in venture-backed companies.
The transaction value of Venture-backed investments has constantly risen over the last 8 years (2012-2019). Whilst the total equity* amount invested has consistently increased, the average equity* ratio per transaction has dropped by 6% since 2015: from equity provided by a fund representing on average 83% of the transaction in 2015 to 77% in 2019.
Buyout investments have reached record levels of transaction value for three years in a row. With €65bn equity* and about €83bn of leverage and co-investments, 2019 saw the highest transaction value of the past decade (€148bn invested).
*includes equity, quasi-equity, mezzanine, unsecured and secured debt provided by the fund.
