Press Release (ePRNews.com) - RYE BROOK, NY - Oct 20, 2016 - NYPPEX, a leading technology-driven secondary private equity advisor, transfer administrator and data provider, has just released a Client Memorandum: Weak 3Q2016 Exits to Cause Lower Secondary Bids Ahead.
Its findings included the following:
1. The trend of weak IPO and M&A exit volume worldwide started in the 3Q2015 has continued through the 3Q2016.
2. This exit trend is causing lower distributions from private equity funds by 40-50% year over year according to investors surveyed by NYPPEX.
This exit and distribution trend is likely to result in lower secondary bid prices in 2017 on average, as projected by NYPPEX.
3. In the 3Q2016, Asia Pacific private equity funds experienced the highest volatility in secondary bids from -3.05% for interests in Distressed Debt funds to +6.73% for Natural Resource funds, driven by slower economic growth and demand from China. European private equity funds experienced increases in secondary bids despite the June Brexit vote. U.S. private equity funds experienced stable secondary bids driven by secondary investors seeking a safe haven.
Note: Secondary bid indications as estimated by NYPPEX.
4. If capital calls increase in the 1Q2017, NYPPEX projects limited partners will incur negative cash flows (capital calls vs. distributions) from more private equity funds, a similar scenario to the negative cash flow period of 2008-2012.
5. NYPPEX recommends that investors review cash reserves and access to liquidity vs. projected liabilities for calendar year end 2016 and 2017 budgets.
