agreeing to an acquisition without itself committing all the capital required for the acquisition. To do this, the financial sponsor will raise acquisition debt which ultimately looks to the cash flows of the acquisition target to make interest and principal payments. Acquisition debt in an LBO is often non-recourse to the financial sponsor and has no claim on other investment managed by the financial sponsor.

The Morning Leverage: A Tasty Late-Night Snack For PE
While there’s always room for a late-night snack, it may not be the first sort of investment opportunity that jumps out at a PE pro.

Understanding Private Equity Performance
In the early years, private equity funds will show low or negative returns. The investment gains usually come in the later years as the companies mature and, with the help of the  General Partner , increase in value. The effect of this timing on the fund's interim returns is known as the  J-Curve Effect . In the initial years, investment returns are negative due to management fees, which are drawn from committed capital, and under-performing investments that are identified early and  written down . It can take several years for the portfolio valuations to reflect the efforts of the General Partners. Over ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

How do they choose between senior staff versus junior staff, and do they view the Board membership more as an asset to the portfolio company, or as a communication tool to respond back to the corporation? Is it used as a ...
WikiAnswers - What are some of the big issues facing the Private ...
Private equity is a subset of the funds management industry. Private equity firms draw down funds from their investors and use those funds to buy portfolio companies.

The big threat for the sector is consolidation amongst private equity firms who can't sell portfolio companies at a profit and attract new investors (who pay fees) in. Please see ...
