Good stat on comparative seller remorse in private equity deals:
- Corporate sellers who feel like they’ve left money on table: 46%
- PE sellers who feel they’ve left money on table: 25%
Now, the latter group may be delusional while the former is realistic, so there are other possible interpretations here. Then again, to be somewhat more serious, if you don’t leave some money at the table it generally becomes awfully difficult to get a deal done in all but the hottest auctions.
