The impact of the financial and economic crisis on private equity and venture capital investments in Europe
AbstractThe paper deals with the analysis of the private equity and venture capital investment trends and activities in the European market, particularly in the market of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), in times of financial and economic crises 2007-2009. The analysis is based on data published by the European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (EVCA). The financial and economic crisis caused in 2008-2009 a rapid cooling of the European market. General Partners have decreased significantly in private equity investment level and number of enterprises financed in Europe as a whole. The financial and economic crisis has resulted in the level of investment in all sectors activity, reaching all market segments. The financial and economic crisis on CEE market showed a delay and a lower intensity in comparison with Western Europe. CEE market is, however, underdeveloped. This argument is supported by data indicating annual investment value, number of companies received private equity financing and the ratio of private equity investment to gross domestic product (GDP).
