Private Equity investments in India touched a record high of $16.8 billion in 2015 (across 661 deals), 16% higher than the previous high of $14.5 billion (across 529 deals) recorded in 2007 and a whopping 50% higher than the $11.2 billion (across 530 deals) invested during the previous year, according to early data from Venture Intelligence, India’s longest serving research service focused on private company financials, transactions and valuations. The surge was led by continued mega investments in consumer targeting Internet & Mobile Services companies that accounted for almost $5.3 billion or 31.5% of the investment pie during the year. (Note: Venture Intelligence’s figures on PE investments do not include investments in Real Estate.)
