(Bloomberg) -- Carlyle Group Inc. is preparing to exit “a number” of investments as the market for private equity dealmaking rebounds, according to a top executive with the firm. 

“We are beginning to see the whole market improve on buying and selling,” Brian Bernasek, co-head of Americas corporate private equity, said in an interview with Bloomberg TV on Wednesday. “We have a number of businesses that we are looking to exit and have good conversations going in the back half of this year and into next year.”

Strong credit markets, stable interest rates and stable equity markets are giving dealmakers more confidence to transact, he said. Carlyle has announced the sale of four companies this year, including the sale of video game publisher Jagex to CVC Capital Partners and Haveli Investments, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
