VC-Backed M&A Snapshot – VC Exits Down in 2012

Posted On: February 7th, 2013

Sector Status:


Although overall M&A activity was up 43% in Q4 (see our Q4 M&A Snapshot), venture-backed M&A exits  declined somewhat.  Given the inherent variability of quarterly measures, Architect Partners doesn’t place too much emphasis in the quarterly decline.  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.
