Midmarket private equity transactions in Q4 2010, at 58, were the highest in the past eight quarters, according to p.e. research firm GF Data Resources.
The total number of such deals—which GF Data defines as transactions with enterprise values of $10 million to $250 million—for the calendar year was 147. In Q4 2009, the research company reported 26 midmarket deals, out of a full-year total of 81.
A total of 100 of last year’s 147 midmarket deals were concluded in the last six months of the year, says GF Data. The average price of the transactions closed in Q4 was 6.1 times the trailing 12 months adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.
GF Data’s report is based on data from 155 p.e. firms and a database of 1,104 transactions closed between January 1, 2003 and December 31, 2010.
