Industry Trends

+ As of September 2019, add-ons accounted for 68% of all US PE buyouts.
+ Two main factors contributing to this record ratio of add-ons / LBOs are heightened focus on the buy-and-build model, and increasing buyout multiples.
+ The first add-on acquisition for a platform is typically made within the first year of the platform itself being acquired.
