Latest study - Value Creation in Buyout Deals: European Evidence
Adveq is pleased to introduce the latest study in the Adveq Applied Research Series from the Private Equity Institute at London Business School, which set out to examine the changing face of the global private equity industry.

In one of the largest studies of its kind, “Value creation in buyout deals: European Evidence”, researchers from the London Business School examined a sample of nearly 10,000 European private equity-initiated deals, executed from 2008 to 2014, in search of a better understanding of how portfolio outperformance is achieved.

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.

The evidence in this report 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.
