Jan-Aug PE investment deals tally at $13.8 billion

"The overall deal tally for the January-August period stood at $13.78 billion, a significant 75 per cent increase in value terms over the same period last year. These deals highlight the increasing cash burn and need for investment in the e-commerce segment and also increasing pressure on large debt laden corporates to dilute their stakes to reduce indebtedness.”
