A Mint article quotes Venture Intelligence data on Private Equity and Venture Capital Exits through IPOs:
In yet another successful year of exits, private equity (PE) funds sold shares worth $1.17 billion in 2017 as their portfolio companies went public, data from Venture Intelligence shows.
The figure is almost 25% higher than the $935 million they sold through initial public offerings (IPOs) in 2016. In 2015, PEs sold stocks worth just $287 million in IPOs.
These factors have led to an increase in the contribution of IPOs to overall PE exits, from a 3% share of overall exits worth $9.95 billion in 2015 to about 12% share of $9.97 billion exits so far in 2017, data from Venture Intelligence shows.
