News in brief: VC deals race ahead

Venture Capitalists are confident that deal activity will pick up over the next six months, with disposals of non-core subsidiaries providing the biggest source of opportunities, according to Deloitte & Touche's latest private equity confidence survey.

Almost half (47%) of the VCs surveyed expected an increase in transactions with only 5% anticipating an actual fall in deal flow. This compared with more pessimistic views about the economy as a whole, with 25% VCs expecting the economic climate to deteriorate and just 17% anticipating an improvement (last quarter these figures were 4% and 37% respectively).

Speakers at this year’s ICAEW Corporate Finance Faculty conference will include Ken Rushton, the FSA’s head of listings, Alchemy’s Jon Moulton and Philip Remnant, director of the Takeover Panel. The conference, due to be held on 25 and 26 November at the Meridien Waldorf Hotel, London, will analyse the major regulatory changes that have affected the corporate finance arena this year.
