US Private Equity Outlook – Cautious Optimism

PE dealmaking in the US continues to be impacted by heightened interest rates, inflationary pressures, and economic and geopolitical instability, which in turn affect fundraising, deployment and exit activity. According to Mergermarket data, North American leveraged buyout volume dropped to 21% in 2023 – to $176 billion, the lowest total since 2020 – spurred by high financing costs and a valuation gap between buyers and sellers. But with expected interest rate cuts and dealmakers facing increased pressure by their investors to put dry powder to work, predictions abound that the deal market will return, with the PE market entering a new growth cycle this year.
