Download: Winning an auction, mastering your exit, and 7 other private equity lessons to help shape your 2020/21 investments
Delivering over 100 buyouts, investments, follow-on acquisitions and exits involving PE investors in the last year, with an aggregate deal value of over £7 billion, provided a unique vantage point of not only the key trends in private equity, but also future indicators of success factors and risk. In this free report – which you can download below - we share those trends and insights they reveal, clustered into 9 areas pivotal to the success of PE transactions and portfolios, from ‘how to win an auction’ and 'developing a buy & build strategy' to ‘stellar exits’.
Of course, the COVID-19 pandemic presents unprecedented context, but past trends and terms can be illuminating for the new world ahead. We know from previous downturns that it invariably takes the experiences of a more challenging environment within portfolios to identify where deal terms were too bullish, or legal mechanisms require improvement.
We hope you find the review informative and useful. We would be delighted to answer any specific questions as it relates to your investments, portfolio or risks with you or your team – please do get in touch.
