Murray Devine Valuation Advisors Publishes 2019 Valuation Outlook

Philadelphia, August 12, 2019 – Murray Devine Valuation Advisors has released its semi-annual Valuation Outlook which looks at the high private equity valuations that have persisted in the first half of 2019, and what we might expect for the latter half of the year.

The 2019 second-half outlook, “A Pause that Refreshes?,” explores what have been continued high valuations this year even as deal flow has slowed – noting that this might just be the private equity industry taking a quick breath after many years of sustained growth.

“Anecdotally, sponsors remain cautiously optimistic and the data, in the form of steady and high valuations, bears this out,” noted Daniel DiDomenico III, Senior Managing Director at Murray Devine Valuation Advisors and author of the report. “While most sectors saw a pullback in deal activity during the quarter, investors gravitated to technology and software deals, which may also contribute to purchase price multiples that remain elevated.”

The report includes data on the median valuation multiples paid by U.S. private equity firms and M&A multiples inclusive of strategic activity as well. The data also shows trends in private equity deal flow, activity in specific sectors and highlights the top 10 PE deals based on size in the first half.
