Our friends at PriceWaterhouseCoopers are back with more interesting numbers quantifying the local Orange County capital investment and funding environment.
While the first two quarters of 2018 demonstrated generally strong deal flow, unfortunately it looks like deals and funding activity in the Los Angeles and OC region declined again last quarter.
As you can see, the dollar volume of that more recent period's 85 investments dropped 53% since Q2 of 2018, down to only $825MM.
(And that looks like the lowest dollar amount in years.)

Anyone have commentary or insights into this big decline?
Or forecasts for the coming year – hopefully more optimistic ones?
