Shibolet & Co. and IVC Research Center PE survey for Q3/2015

$419 million in private equity deals in Q3/2015; $2.5 billion in the first nine months of 2015

Key facts:

  • Q3/2015 Israeli PE deal making drops 43% below the 5-year quarterly average
  • Technology sector attracts $1.8 billion – 75% of all PE transactions in Q3/2015
  • Foreign PE funds cool down in Q3/2015 – only 29% of all Israeli private equity investments

Omer Ben-Zvi, Partner at Shibolet & Co.  “On the one hand, it can’t be denied that private equity investments in the third quarter of 2015 were relatively low. This fact may be attributed to the volatility in capital markets in recent months, which is crucial when large deals in late stage companies are concerned. On the other hand, it’s important to note that the number of deals and volumes are very similar to those of the first quarter of the year, with the entire period constituting an especially strong first three quarters. Therefore, I wouldn’t conclude that the trend is turning, or that the Israeli private equity market is weakening simply based on the third quarter results.”
