No Shocker Here–Carlyle is Q3’s Most Active PE Shop

The Carlyle Group may have turned in a lackluster IPO, but David Rubenstein’s private equity firm was the busiest buyer in the third quarter.

Washington D.C.-based Carlyle was the most active of all PE firms during the time period and its deals totaled the most in terms of deal value, according to separate data from Thomson Reuters and Dealogic. Carlyle led or took part in 18 U.S. announced mergers during the third quarter, valued at $16.3 billion, Dealogic says. BC Partners, which had three deals totaling $10 billion, took second place.

Carlyle went public in May, raising $671 million. The PE firm barely stayed above its $22 IPO price but the stock has since gained. On Monday, Carlyle’s shares added 12 cents to close at $26.24.

Here’s Carlyle top 5 deals, according to Dealogic.
