This week witnessed the biggest private-equity offer in history, a buy-out of BCE, a Canadian telecoms operator, that would be worth a total of $48.5 billion. Virgin Media, a British cable company, faces a $22 billion bid. The value of takeover  deals—plenty of them involving private-equity firms—soared to $2.7 trillion in the first half of the year, almost half as much again as in the last six months of 2006. Optimists will take all that as further evidence of private equity's bright hopes. But it is also possible that the weather is turning and the debt that powers private equity's siege engines is starting—just starting, mind you—to become harder to scrape together. It may not happen this month, perhaps not even this year, but sooner or later the private-equity boom will come to an end.
本周,加拿大电信运营商BCE的并购案成了私募股权史上规模最大的一宗,该案总值可达485亿美元。英国有线电视公司Virgin Media面临着一项220亿美元的竞价。各类收购交易的价值——大量的交易都和私募股权企业有关——在今年上半年骤升至2.7兆美元,这大约相当于2006年前6个月交易量的一倍半。乐观人士会将这一切视作私募股权具有灿烂前景的进一步明证。但境遇亦可转变,促进私募股权的围城引擎运转的债务也开始——注意,只是刚开始——变得难以积攒。这种情况在5月份可能不会出现,甚至在年内也不会发生,但是迟早,私募股权的荣景会寿终正寝。
