Exits: an evolving landscape

Given current economic conditions, US PE firms are likely to navigate the exit market vis-a-vis more unique approaches. In a bid to get liquidity for their LPs, and with the IPO market effectively down, trade sales to strategic players have increased, and buyouts and take-privates have also been outpacing exits. On the venture capital side, investors are thinking of M&A as an exit opportunity as well- with more activity in this area higher compared to the past few years. Our panel of GPs and M&A experts will discuss their strategies in this space.

  • Are GPs under pressure to sell, or are some firms taking a wait-and-see-approach? 
  • Given the dramatic decline in IPOs, what are some creative strategies GPs have used to exit, including trade sales, secondary transaction exits and selling to strategic buyers ?
  • Will there be a rise in traditional auction process-led M&A?
  • Will the exit market pick up pace in 2023?
