VC-Backed M&A Snapshot – VC Exits Down in 2012
Posted On: February 7th, 2013
Although overall M&A activity was up 43% in Q4 (see our Q4 M&A Snapshot), venture-backed M&A exits declined somewhat.

However, 2012 overall has been materially slower than 2011. 2012 had 75 venture-backed exits, which was down 23% from 2011 (98 deals). Take a look at our presentation for more details.
