NYPPEX: Private Equity Cash Distributions Decline 20-75% in the 1H2016

RYE BROOK, N.Y., July 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — NYPPEX, a technology-driven financial services company that provides secondary private equity market liquidity, has just released its 2016 Midyear Secondary Private Equity Market Trends and Valuation Report.

Its findings included the following:

1. Secondary transaction volume increased significantly in the 2Q2016 and resulted in approximately $15.7 billion for interests in private equity funds worldwide for the 1H2016. Activity was driven by stability in stock and commodities prices, better than expected net asset values as of December 31, 2015 and strong investor demand.

2. Secondary “high” bid prices increased approximately 0.24% to 103.94 (% of NAV) for U.S. private equity funds as investors sought safe havens; however, declined 0.33% to 96.35 on average for European private equity funds driven by economic growth uncertainty.

3. Cash distributions from private equity funds declined 20-75% in the 1H2016, driven by 40%+ declines in IPO capital raised in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific regions accompanied by a significant volume of failed merger & acquisition deals.
