Clearwater International Multiples Heatmap: Q2 2022

In-depth analysis of the acquisition multiples paid for European private equity transactions

Mergermarket is pleased to present the Clearwater International Multiples Heatmap: Q2 2022, published in association with Clearwater International and Unquote. The report identifies key themes driving European Private Equity (PE) activity on a quarterly basis.

In this issue:

  • European overview: The value of PE-backed transactions in Europe surged to an all-time high in Q2 2022 – despite tough macroeconomic conditions and mounting geopolitical turbulence. Deep reserves of liquidity and fierce competition for high-quality assets contributed to a quarterly deal total of €83.6bn, a 32% increase from Q1. TMT led the way, clocking up deals worth €22.7bn, the sector’s highest quarterly total since records began.
  • Spotlight on Nordics: The Nordic region saw strong buyout performance in Q2. Clearwater International partners Tomas Almgren and Lars Rau Jacobsen reveal where the opportunities lie and what the future might have in store.
  • Business services sector focus: From accountancy services and human capital to consulting and TICC, the business services sector encompasses an incredible range of cash-generating commercial activities. Opportunities abound and, as Clearwater International’s Rob Burden explains, competition for the most attractive assets remains hot.
