Private equity investments and merger and acquisition transactions in the country have witnessed robust growth during January-March period, as deals worth USD 29 billion have been announced in this space.

According to the data compiled by research firm Accenture , the total private equity investments during January-March of this year stood at USD 3.18 billion, while M&A activity for the first three quarters of 2011 reached at USD 25.82 billion.

In terms of deal-count, however, the total number of transactions decreased to 313 in the quarter to March 2011 from 389 in the year-ago period.

"The total deal value increased from USD 24 billion in the first quarter of calender year 2010 to USD 29 billion in the first quarter of 2011 mainly due to increase in average transaction size," the report noted.

A sectoral analysis shows that energy, finance and telecom were the most targetted sectors during the quarter.

Further, domestic deals were the flavour of the quarter, with 293 such pacts accounting for 94 per cent of the overall deal value. Besides, cross-border transaction stood at 20, which is six per cent of the total deal value.

Germany-based industry and infrastructure solutions company Siemens AG acquiring 19.82 per cent equity in Indian firm Siemens Ltd for USD 1.37 billion is another major transaction.

In the private equity segment for the quarter ended March 2011, the total announced deal value was USD 3.18 billion, which is a four-fold jump from the year-ago period.

The largest PE investment during the quarter was the USD 1 billion (about Rs 4,500 crore) commitment by Bain Capital and Singapore's GIC to Hero Investments, the Hero group holding firm which is to buy out Honda Motors' 26 per cent stake in listed two-wheeler maker Hero Honda.
