According to PitchBook’s second quarter Private Equity Breakdown, private equity deal-making collapsed in the first quarter of 2013.  Over the last decade, platform-type buyout deals have contracted from representing over half (51 percent) to about one-third (34 percent).  Exits of private equity firms from investments fell 67 percent by volume and 81 percent by dollar value.  The balance of 2013 looks better, with large funds raising capital while also expiring capital, cheap debt and aging portfolio companies.
