Resilience fuels rebound
CE Private Equity confidence survey, May 2015
We are pleased to share with you the results of our latest CE Private Equity confidence survey, which show that deal-doers in Central European private equity firms have regained some of the confidence lost last year. Investors are again positive about the region’s prospects.
- Confidence is recovering after its recent dip, a boost mirrored in economic expectations: nearly a third of respondents expect the economy to improve, up nearly three-fold from the previous survey’s figure.
- CE deal-doers expect to split their time evenly between fundraising, portfolio management and new investments over the next six months – the first time the survey has yielded such a response.
- Leverage liquidity is on the up, with a more than doubling of respondents to a third expecting debt to be more readily available in the next six months. Just 3% expect it to be harder to secure funding for a buyout.
