01.15.07 Private Equity Enjoyed Record Fundraising Year in 2006-Buyout Firms Raised Most Ever Recorded; Venture Capital Firms at Highest Level Since 2001/ New York/First Call via COMTEX Fueled by a very strong fourth quarter, private equity fundraising surpassed prior years and reached unprecedented levels on the buyout side in 2006 according to Thomson Venture Economics and the National Venture Capital Association. For the year, 159 buyout/mezzanine firms raised $86.2 billion, the highest yearly total for these funds ever recorded. Venture funds also experienced the benefits of high demand for alternative investments, with 182 funds attracting $25.2 billion — the highest yearly total for venture capital firms since 2001 when 309 funds raised $38 billion.

On the buyout side, 2006 figures represented a 67% increase over 2005 when 129 funds raised $51.6 billion. Venture fundraising saw similarly strong activity with a 46% increase over the previous year’s $17.3 billion in commitments. During the fourth quarter, 36 buyout funds raised $30 billion — the largest single quarter figure ever and a 66% increase over the third quarter’s $18.1 billion. Fifty venture funds took in $6.7 billion in Q4, a 15% increase over the $5.8 billion committed in the third quarter. Despite the higher commitment levels, NVCA President Mark Heesen commended the venture capital industry on its restraint:

Fundraising discipline prevailed on the venture capital side in 2006, said Heesen. Many firms with solid track records actually turned away money this year once they reached their targets. This supply and demand dynamic has several forward-looking implications. First, the top venture firms can be very selective as to whom they bring on as investors, which does not bode well for public funds who can’t guarantee the confidentiality of data. Second, the capital being turned away from the venture industry is finding its way into buyout funds, creating excess liquidity. The question is: where will all this buyout money be deployed? One logical opportunity would be for these buyout funds to become active acquirers of venture-backed companies, essentially fueling a new exit market.
