Private equity deal values in Asia-Pacific have doubled this year, while APC exits fell by 59% YTD, according to data from EY. Simon Kavanagh, Managing Director at BDA Partners shared his views with Private Equity International: “I think 2021 from a private equity exit point of view is going to be very strong, because there is this backlog of companies [in Asia] that have actually performed better than expected in 2020”. APAC’s deal values were skewed in part by several mega-deals, and “there is still quite a lot of appetite for those”, added Simon.
