2010: Turnaround year for PEs

2010: Turnaround year for PEs

The Indian private equity (PE) space, which was going through a slide in 2008 and 2009, turned the corner last year. PE investments recovered to $8.13 bn across 328 disclosed transactions, from the lows of $4.25 bn across 250 deals in 2009—a rise of 80%, as per data compiled by Four-S. PE players in India spent 2010 doing what they were supposed to do—putting money to work and showing meaningful returns to LPs before they could bargain for fresh funds.
