    Darren – I love the differences that the charts show between whats invested and whats sold. What makes ‘services’ so large? Is that a few major deals, or really that the market is more prone to service acquisitions?

    I’m guessing its a few, or a single, large acquisition – with the average acquisition size over $300m its certainly skewed.
