With average multiples hitting a record peak, European PE dealmakers appear to have quickly adjusted to the post-pandemic dealmaking environment – delivering record deal value during the first quarter of the year.
The Nordic PE market continued to see record levels of deal value in Q1, with valuations soaring even higher as the pandemic-driven uncertainty is giving way to optimism in many sectors, say Clearwater International partners Tomas Almgren and Lars Rau Jacobsen.
Working with the Clearwater team has been a pleasure. They delivered a faultless process, their extensive knowledge of the debt market and strong presence in our sector was fundamental to us being able to achieve our goal. Clearwater’s guidance and professionalism would benefit any business looking to enhance their growth potential.
