However, compared to the sequential basis, deal value was 5 percent lower than in the April-June quarter, according to the report. It added that the number of deals in the third quarter quarter was lower by 18 percent on a year-on-year basis.
Speaking about the development, Vivek Soni, Partner and National Leader, Private Equity Services at EY India, stated that a growth in pure-pay PE/VC investments of around 88 percent strengthened the growth in total investments in Q3 of 2023. The 3Q2023 recorded 31 large deals amounting to USD 10.7 billion compared to 15 large deals worth USD 4.8 billion in 3Q2022, added Soni.
“The Indian macro, while showing strong signals in terms of new highs in Index of Industrial Production, GST collections, advance tax collections, and heightened consumer confidence as we get into the festive season, is increasingly being counter-weighted by a deteriorating global macro, driven largely by recessionary fears in the US and Europe.”
