Private equity investors backed 32 companies that were delisted from the stock market at a value of £4.9bn in 2001 according to research from the Centre of Management Buy Out Research. Backed by Deloitte & Touche and Barclays Private Equity, the research showed the total value of public to private deals topped £4.9bn, the second highest figure on record. Deloitte’s Chris Ward said: ‘There is a large population of potential P2P targets which, in present economic conditions, will mean 2002 will be a year when increasing numbers of companies choose to delist and go private.’
