According to PitchBook's 2021 Annual PE Breakdown, deal volumes in 2021 smashed the previous record levels in 2019.
PitchBook's 2021 Annual US PE Breakdown was published today. $1.2 trillion in deal value for the year was up 64% from 2019's record year. Deal count of 8,600 grew 50% from 2019. While 2021 may have been an exceptional year given pent-up deals from 2020 due to COVID, it's unlikely there will be a material slowdown in deal activity given the amount of PE dry powder available, the ever-expanding list of industries that PE will invest in, and ongoing demand for exits / liquidity from business owners.
The question we have at RevDeal is: When will the M&A industry start to realize that more technology is needed to process these huge deal volumes, rather than demanding longer and longer hours from M&A professionals?
