The short-term forecast
Download PitchBook’s Report here.
PitchBook analysts expect deal flow to drop fairly substantially over the next several quarters. The trajectory is similar to the drop during the 2008 financial crisis but doesn’t reach the depths that it did in 2009. If our forecasts come close to the truth, deal volume will dip to 2011 levels at its worst. Not great, but not cataclysmic either.
