How data analytics is transforming operational due diligence

It comes as no surprise that the market for PE acquisitions continues to be robust. Global deal value increased from $594.54Bn in 2015 to $825.77Bn in 2018 and that’s nothing compared with the predictions for 2019.

Buoyed by low interest rates, an eager supply of deal financing and a prolonged period of economic growth, PE has plenty of dry powder and has proved to be resistant to the impact of trade wars, tariffs and political uncertainty. However, not all factors are positive: Valuation multiples remain high and there’s considerable competition among PE firms to find and acquire those elusive “diamonds in the rough.” At the same time, corporate “strategics” looking for suitable acquisitions to support their growth, are offering a viable alternative for firms considering sale.
