With one quarter to go in 2019, deal value is set to surpass $100 billion for the second year straight. Mega-deals continue to flow unabated, with 185 already completed this year. While another year of such capital largesse may seem de rigeur by now, 2019 exits represent a new high: Annual exit value has exceeded $200 billion for the first time this decade. Despite their lumpiness, liquidity events for VC have ranged from outsized to more frequent than normal, with well over two-thirds of the year's exits sized at $100 million or more. Liquidity seems to be finally coming in tandem with massive investment flows in 2019.
