Value Creation in Buyout Deals: European Evidence

This report investigates the pricing and post-transaction performance of a large sample of European private equity deals executed between 1998 and 2014. These deals are benchmarked to similar corporate deals and to alternative samples of European companies that are not private equity owned and are matched on important characteristics. Our evidence provides an insight into how value is created at the portfolio company level thus providing an explanation of why private equity funds outperform public markets.
