  • Excluding KKR's Cotiviti acquisition for $11 billion in February, transaction volume still totaled $17 billion, representing a 356% YoY increase from Q1 2023
  • Private equity transaction count has also increased, although at a more measured rate than announced deal volume
  • Sponsors completed 51 FinTech transactions in Q1 2024, representing a 28% increase YoY and a 34% increase QoQ
  • Despite the uptick in Q1 2024 deal count, LTM transactions are down 11% from the prior 12-month period, highlighting just how muted FinTech private equity activity was throughout much of 2023
  • Take-private transactions have stalled out over the past year, with P2P deal volume for LTM Q1 2024 down 68% from the same period last year
