Private Placement Industry Insights as of May 31, 2020

Monday, June 8th, 2020 and is filed under Industry Reporting

We recently released our May Private Placement Insights report. See the highlights from the report below, or if you are a Premium Reporting subscriber, log in now to see the entire report. If you don’t have access, you can request a free trial.

  • Private placement fund formation has slowed in the wake of COVID-19. Eight new private placements were added to our coverage in May, roughly half of the monthly level we’ve seen on average over the last few years. The first few months of 2020 were strong but with the slowdown in May, we are now flat in terms of new funds added to over coverage year-over-year and down modestly in aggregate target raise.
  • The slowdown was most visible in the 1031 category, where only four new funds were added to our coverage in May compared to well over double digit additions for the last several years. This may be partially due to a slowdown in real estate transactions overall as well as a lack of confidence in valuations. Also, fewer highly appreciated properties are being sold right now, which reduces the demand for 1031 exchanges at least in the near-term. The consensus in the industry is that demand will accelerate once transaction activity resumes and valuations are more reliable.
  • We are seeing more activity this year in preferred securities and private equity/debt funds, and we are also starting to see sector-specific opportunistic funds ramp up in the wake of the COVID-19 market disruption. Opportunity zone (QOZ) funds, which had paused for several months, are back on track with three in the queue to be added to our coverage soon. Recent events around the US could continue to highlight the importance of QOZ strategies.
  • As of June 1st, AI Insight covers 171 private placements currently raising capital, with an aggregate target raise of $16.6 billion and an aggregate reported raise of $8.3 billion or 50% of target. The average size of the current funds is $97.0 million, ranging from $3.5 million for a single asset real estate fund to $2.7 billion for a sector specific private equity/debt fund.
  • 14 private placements closed in May, having raised approximately 52% of their target and having been on the market for an average of 336 days.
  • Five private placements suspended offerings due to uncertainties related to COVID-19.
  • ON DECK: as of June 1st, there were four new private placements coming soon.

Private Market Update: COVID-19

  • According to a recent report by Preqin, COVID-19 has disrupted the private capital markets significantly across all categories.
  • Fewer private equity funds met their target fundraising goals and were able to close in Q1 versus prior quarters. Many had established high fundraising targets prior to COVID-19.
  • Private equity fundraising was actually up year-over-year, with the largest and most established funds securing the majority of capital raised.
  • Fewer private equity transactions were completed as managers held off on M&A activity anticipating that asset prices would fall in a recession.
  • The level of dry powder in the private equity industry is at a record $1.4 trillion as of April 2020. Additionally, 2019 vintage funds, which were originally projected to underperform prior vintages, are now more likely to outperform given the drop in asset prices.
  • Private debt fundraising declined in Q1. Direct lending and special situations funds accounted for the majority of fundraising within the category.
  • Private real estate fundraising fell in Q1 2020. Managers raised $81 billion from 51 funds versus $51 billion from 83 funds in Q1 2019.
  • Private real estate transactions also declined year-over-year, with 1,797 deals completed in Q1 2020 compared to 2,417 deals in Q1 2019.
  • Within the real assets category, infrastructure and natural resource fundraising actually increased, and the volume of infrastructure transactions was in line with the prior year. Energy slowed significantly, while social infrastructure sectors such as telecom actually saw increases in fundraising and deal activity.
  • Hedge fund launches have stalled from prior months, especially in the equity strategy sector. This makes sense given the recent downturn, although most hedge fund categories performed as expected. The Preqin All Strategies Hedge Fund benchmark declined 10.38% in Q1 2020, compared to the 20% loss in the S&P 500 Index.

Market Update: COVID-19 Impact on Private Placement Markets
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (the WHO) declared the COVID-19 coronavirus a global pandemic. Trade and travel have since grind to a halt with travel restrictions and stay at home orders issued across the globe. The US and global economies are in recession territory, with GDP in the United States now forecast to decline by 0.2% instead of expanding by 2.0% in 2020 as a result of COVID-19. While the full impact of the global pandemic may take years to determine, the one thing we do know is that it will have a significant impact on all aspects of investing both in the public and private markets. Transactions are slowing across the private placement categories and valuations, which require transactions, may be less reliable or difficult to obtain.
