The firm, which is the European partner of Silicon Valley’s Draper Fisher Jurvetson, has now sold portfolio companies with a total enterprise value of $2.1bn since January 2010, including LoveFilm, Kiala and Zeus.
DFJ Esprit’s activity represents almost one third of all European venture-backed M&A over $40m during the period, it said.
The firm has also been busy on the buyside, with 10 investments in new companies and a further 20 follow-on rounds since July last year.
One of its most recent deals was a $2.3m Series A financing round forsports sales business SportPursuit.co.uk.
DFJ Esprit CEO Simon Cook said, “The continued strong success of our business on all fronts – exits, new investments, secondary portfolio acquisitions and fund raising innovations – is testament to the amazing team of entrepreneurs both within DFJ Esprit’s team and at our portfolio companies.”
