Since the origins of the modern private equity industry in 1946, there have been four major epochs marked by three boom and bust cycles.

The first boom and bust cycle , from 1982 through 1993, was characterized by the dramatic surge in leveraged buyout activity financed by junk bonds and culminating in the massive buyout of RJR Nabisco before the near collapse of the leveraged buyout ...

peHUB » Venrock Raises $350 Million for New Fund
Venrock has closed its sixth venture capital fund with $350 million in capital commitments, peHUB has learned. Expect a formal announcement later this morning. At first blush, it’s tempting to say that Venrock’s fund-raising success was no big deal. After all, the firm was only targeting 58% of the $600 million it raised for its fifth fund in 2005. But I’ve got to give some major kudos here. First, Venrock reached its modest target very quickly — something that many rival firms have struggled to do. Second, it somehow managed to maintain its 25% carried interest structure. Third, and perhaps most ... market research, surveys and trends

Expert eyes will be on tomorrow's figures
Inflation and unemployment figures and the annual meetings of British Airways and Marks & Spencer should make up for a quiet results schedule this week. Experts will take the latest temperature of the fragile UK economy as a flurry of data begins today with the delayed second revision of official growth estimates for the first quarter of 2010. The Office for National Statistics put back the release two weeks ago after spotting “potential errors” in the data, which most economists expect to show GDP growth unchanged at 0.3% for the first three months of the year, down from 0.4% in the ­previous quarter. While the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Experts' views on FreeHand Surgical
As a private equity investor, we agree that a large shareholder base can be an issue. It can frustrate or delay decision making and reduce the company’s ability to respond quickly to opportunities.

Venture capital investors don’t like buying shares from other shareholders but look to direct funds to support the growth of a company. A number of shareholders in the company may be tired, having had their money tied up for as long as 10 years already, so they may ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
