Barron’s [1] notes that Q3 2014 has been good to Private Equity firms:

$50 billion: U.S. private-equity fund raising in the second quarter, a near doubling from the first quarter

-3%: sequential decline in total equity financing for U.S. leveraged buyouts

$440 billion: callable capital reserves, or “dry powder,” rose to this level sequentially

-21%: decrease in exit volume in the quarter
