In Q2, AI had the second highest exit activity on record. Now armed with the data through June 2018, we’re performing a mid-year status check on how this year is shaping up.
Based on analysis on our AI research platform, we see that exit activity in the first half of 2018 is slightly down from 2017.
2018 Mid-Year AI Exit Activity Lower Than 2017 But Higher Than 2016
Let’s take a closer look at the number of AI exit events by year.
The above graphic shows 32 exits in the first half of 2018. For the past three years, Q3 and Q4 accounted for 46% of total exit events on average. If that trend holds, 2018 exits finish the year slightly lower than 2017, but higher than 2016. We'll see if the second half of the year changes this trend!
