Private equity PE typically refers to investment funds , generally organized as limited partnerships , that buy and restructure companies that are not publicly traded. Private equity is a type of equity and one of the asset classes consisting of equity securities and debt in operating companies that are not publicly traded on a stock exchange.
A private-equity investment will generally be made by a private-equity firm , a venture capital firm or an angel investor. Each of these categories of investors has its own set of goals, preferences and investment strategies; however, all provide working capital to a target company to nurture expansion, new-product development, or restructuring of the company's operations, management, or ownership.
Common investment strategies in private equity include leveraged buyouts , venture capital , growth capital , distressed investments and mezzanine capital. In a typical leveraged-buyout transaction, a private-equity firm buys majority control of an existing or mature firm. This is distinct from a venture-capital or growth-capital investment, in which the investors typically venture-capital firms or angel investors invest in young, growing or emerging companies , and rarely obtain majority control.
Private equity is also often grouped into a broader category called private capital , generally used to describe capital supporting any long-term, illiquid investment strategy. Bloomberg Businessweek has called "private equity" a rebranding of leveraged-buyout firms after the s. The strategies private-equity firms may use are as follows, leveraged buyout being the most important. Leveraged buyout, LBO, or Buyout refers to a strategy of making equity investments as part of a transaction in which a company, business unit, or business assets is acquired from the current shareholders typically with the use of financial leverage.
Leveraged buyouts involve a financial sponsor 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. Therefore, an LBO transaction's financial structure is particularly attractive to a fund's limited partners, allowing them the benefits of leverage but greatly limiting the degree of recourse of that leverage.
This kind of financing structure leverage benefits an LBO's financial sponsor in two ways: 1 the investor itself only needs to provide a fraction of the capital for the acquisition, and 2 the returns to the investor will be enhanced as long as the return on assets exceeds the cost of the debt.
As a percentage of the purchase price for a leverage buyout target, the amount of debt used to finance a transaction varies according to the financial condition and history of the acquisition target, market conditions, the willingness of lenders to extend credit both to the LBO's financial sponsors and the company to be acquired as well as the interest costs and the ability of the company to cover those costs.
It replaces the senior management in XYZ Industrial, and they set out to streamline it. The workforce is reduced, some assets are sold off, etc. The objective is to increase the value of the company for an early sale.
Taxation of such gains is at capital gains rates. Note that part of that profit results from turning the company around, and part results from the general increase in share prices in a buoyant stock market, the latter often being the greater component. Growth Capital refers to equity investments, most often minority investments, in relatively mature companies that are looking for capital to expand or restructure operations, enter new markets or finance a major acquisition without a change of control of the business.
Companies that seek growth capital will often do so in order to finance a transformational event in their life cycle. These companies are likely to be more mature than venture capital-funded companies, able to generate revenue and operating profits but unable to generate sufficient cash to fund major expansions, acquisitions or other investments.
Because of this lack of scale, these companies generally can find few alternative conduits to secure capital for growth, so access to growth equity can be critical to pursue necessary facility expansion, sales and marketing initiatives, equipment purchases, and new product development. The primary owner of the company may not be willing to take the financial risk alone. By selling part of the company to private equity, the owner can take out some value and share the risk of growth with partners.
A Private investment in public equity , or PIPEs , refer to a form of growth capital investment made into a publicly traded company. PIPE investments are typically made in the form of a convertible or preferred security that is unregistered for a certain period of time.
The Registered Direct, or RD, is another common financing vehicle used for growth capital. A registered direct is similar to a PIPE but is instead sold as a registered security. Mezzanine capital refers to subordinated debt or preferred equity securities that often represent the most junior portion of a company's capital structure that is senior to the company's common equity. This form of financing is often used by private-equity investors to reduce the amount of equity capital required to finance a leveraged buyout or major expansion.
Mezzanine capital, which is often used by smaller companies that are unable to access the high yield market , allows such companies to borrow additional capital beyond the levels that traditional lenders are willing to provide through bank loans. Venture capital  or VC is a broad subcategory of private equity that refers to equity investments made, typically in less mature companies, for the launch of a seed or startup company, early-stage development, or expansion of a business.
Venture investment is most often found in the application of new technology, new marketing concepts and new products that do not have a proven track record or stable revenue streams. Venture capital is often sub-divided by the stage of development of the company ranging from early-stage capital used for the launch of startup companies to late stage and growth capital that is often used to fund expansion of existing business that are generating revenue but may not yet be profitable or generating cash flow to fund future growth.
Entrepreneurs often develop products and ideas that require substantial capital during the formative stages of their companies' life cycles.
Being able to secure financing is critical to any business, whether it is a startup seeking venture capital or a mid-sized firm that needs more cash to grow. Although venture capital is often most closely associated with fast-growing technology , healthcare and biotechnology fields, venture funding has been used for other more traditional businesses.
Investors generally commit to venture capital funds as part of a wider diversified private-equity portfolio , but also to pursue the larger returns the strategy has the potential to offer. However, venture capital funds have produced lower returns for investors over recent years compared to other private-equity fund types, particularly buyout. Distressed or Special Situations is a broad category referring to investments in equity or debt securities of financially stressed companies.
In addition to these private-equity strategies, hedge funds employ a variety of distressed investment strategies including the active trading of loans and bonds issued by distressed companies.
Secondary investments refer to investments made in existing private-equity assets. These transactions can involve the sale of private-equity fund interests or portfolios of direct investments in privately held companies through the purchase of these investments from existing institutional investors.
Secondary investments provide institutional investors with the ability to improve vintage diversification [ clarify ] , particularly for investors that are new to the asset class.
Secondaries also typically experience a different cash flow profile, diminishing the j-curve effect of investing in new private-equity funds. In J. Morgan arguably managed the first leveraged buyout of the Carnegie Steel Company using private equity.
The first leveraged buyout may have been the purchase by McLean Industries, Inc. These investment vehicles would utilize a number of the same tactics and target the same type of companies as more traditional leveraged buyouts and in many ways could be considered a forerunner of the later private-equity firms. In fact it is Posner who is often credited with coining the term " leveraged buyout " or "LBO".
The leveraged buyout boom of the s was conceived by a number of corporate financiers, most notably Jerome Kohlberg Jr.
Working for Bear Stearns at the time, Kohlberg and Kravis along with Kravis' cousin George Roberts began a series of what they described as "bootstrap" investments. Many of these companies lacked a viable or attractive exit for their founders as they were too small to be taken public and the founders were reluctant to sell out to competitors and so a sale to a financial buyer could prove attractive. The success of the Gibson Greetings investment attracted the attention of the wider media to the nascent boom in leveraged buyouts.
During the s, constituencies within acquired companies and the media ascribed the " corporate raid " label to many private-equity investments, particularly those that featured a hostile takeover of the company, perceived asset stripping , major layoffs or other significant corporate restructuring activities.
Bass , T. Carl Icahn developed a reputation as a ruthless corporate raider after his hostile takeover of TWA in One of the final major buyouts of the s proved to be its most ambitious and marked both a high-water mark and a sign of the beginning of the end of the boom that had begun nearly a decade earlier.
It was, at that time and for over 17 years, the largest leveraged buyout in history. Many of the major banking players of the day, including Morgan Stanley , Goldman Sachs , Salomon Brothers , and Merrill Lynch were actively involved in advising and financing the parties. In and , a number of leveraged buyout transactions were completed that for the first time surpassed the RJR Nabisco leveraged buyout in terms of nominal purchase price.
However, adjusted for inflation, none of the leveraged buyouts of the — period would surpass RJR Nabisco. By the end of the s the excesses of the buyout market were beginning to show, with the bankruptcy of several large buyouts including Robert Campeau 's buyout of Federated Department Stores , the buyout of the Revco drug stores, Walter Industries, FEB Trucking and Eaton Leonard.
Drexel reached an agreement with the government in which it pleaded nolo contendere no contest to six felonies — three counts of stock parking and three counts of stock manipulation.
Milken left the firm after his own indictment in March Brady , the U. The combination of decreasing interest rates, loosening lending standards and regulatory changes for publicly traded companies specifically the Sarbanes—Oxley Act would set the stage for the largest boom private equity had seen.
Marked by the buyout of Dex Media in , large multibillion-dollar U. As ended and began, new "largest buyout" records were set and surpassed several times with nine of the top ten buyouts at the end of having been announced in an month window from the beginning of through the middle of In , private-equity firms bought U. In July , the turmoil that had been affecting the mortgage markets , spilled over into the leveraged finance and high-yield debt markets.
July and August saw a notable slowdown in issuance levels in the high yield and leveraged loan markets with few issuers accessing the market. Uncertain market conditions led to a significant widening of yield spreads, which coupled with the typical summer slowdown led many companies and investment banks to put their plans to issue debt on hold until the autumn. However, the expected rebound in the market after 1 May did not materialize, and the lack of market confidence prevented deals from pricing.
By the end of September, the full extent of the credit situation became obvious as major lenders including Citigroup and UBS AG announced major writedowns due to credit losses. The leveraged finance markets came to a near standstill during a week in Nevertheless, private equity continues to be a large and active asset class and the private-equity firms, with hundreds of billions of dollars of committed capital from investors are looking to deploy capital in new and different transactions.
As a result of the global financial crisis, private equity has become subject to increased regulation in Europe and is now subject, among other things, to rules preventing asset stripping of portfolio companies and requiring the notification and disclosure of information in connection with buy-out activity. With the increased availability and scope of funding provided by private markets, many companies are staying private simply because they can.
Although the capital for private equity originally came from individual investors or corporations, in the s, private equity became an asset class in which various institutional investors allocated capital in the hopes of achieving risk-adjusted returns that exceed those possible in the public equity markets. In the s, insurers were major private-equity investors. Later, public pension funds and university and other endowments became more significant sources of capital.
US, Canadian and European public and private pension schemes have invested in the asset class since the early s to diversify away from their core holdings public equity and fixed income. Most institutional investors do not invest directly in privately held companies , lacking the expertise and resources necessary to structure and monitor the investment. Instead, institutional investors will invest indirectly through a private-equity fund.
Certain institutional investors have the scale necessary to develop a diversified portfolio of private-equity funds themselves, while others will invest through a fund of funds to allow a portfolio more diversified than one a single investor could construct. Returns on private-equity investments are created through one or a combination of three factors that include: debt repayment or cash accumulation through cash flows from operations, operational improvements that increase earnings over the life of the investment and multiple expansion, selling the business for a higher price than was originally paid.
A key component of private equity as an asset class for institutional investors is that investments are typically realized after some period of time, which will vary depending on the investment strategy. Private-equity investment returns are typically realized through one of the following avenues:.
Large institutional asset owners such as pension funds with typically long-dated liabilities , insurance companies, sovereign wealth and national reserve funds have a generally low likelihood of facing liquidity shocks in the medium term, and thus can afford the required long holding periods characteristic of private-equity investment.
The median horizon for a LBO transaction is 8 years. The private-equity secondary market also often called private-equity secondaries refers to the buying and selling of pre-existing investor commitments to private equity and other alternative investment funds.
Sellers of private-equity investments sell not only the investments in the fund but also their remaining unfunded commitments to the funds. By its nature, the private-equity asset class is illiquid, intended to be a long-term investment for buy-and-hold investors. For the vast majority of private-equity investments, there is no listed public market; however, there is a robust and maturing secondary market available for sellers of private-equity assets.
Increasingly, secondaries are considered a distinct asset class with a cash flow profile that is not correlated with other private-equity investments.
Preqin Special Report: Making the Case for First-Time Funds
Outperformance First-time funds have outperformed funds of established managers in every year except one over the past 13 years. As closed-end funds are long-term and illiquid investments, many LPs do not feel comfortable committing significant capital to unproven managers, especially as many of these first-time funds focus on diverse and innovative, yet unproven, investment ideas. Every top performing and brand name GP has had to raise a fund for the first time. Whether these first-time funds were teams spun off from a balance sheet at an investment bank or insurance company, or individuals leaving a more established GP to start their own firm, there have always been LPs providing capital commitments to back these investment ideas. Many of the LPs that have supported these first-time GPs initial investment strategies and talents have been rewarded with strong and in some cases, exceptional fund performance, increased portfolio diversification, experience with niche strategies and other factors beneficial to their overall investment program. Covering areas such as first-time fund performance and fundraising, and with examples of LPs that have had success investing in these new managers, LPs reading this report can expect a data-driven overview of first-time fund investing. We hope you find this report useful, and welcome any feedback you may have.

Мы погибли, - прошептала Мидж. - Подождите, - сказала Сьюзан. - Прочитайте еще .
В качестве заложников? - холодно усмехнулся Стратмор. - Грег, тебе придется придумать что-нибудь получше. Между шифровалкой и стоянкой для машин не менее дюжины вооруженных охранников.
Рыжеволосая, - сказал Беккер, уклоняясь от ответа. - Рыжеволосая? - переспросила. Пауза. - Это Servicio Social de Sevilla.
После паузы, показавшейся ей вечностью, она прошептала: - Коммандер. И в тот же миг осознала свою ошибку. Она ощутила запах Хейла, но повернулась слишком поздно. И тут же забилась, задыхаясь от удушья.
Но, Сьюзан… я думал… - Он взял ее за дрожащие плечи и повернул к. И тогда он увидел, что Сьюзан вовсе не плакала. - Я не выйду за тебя замуж! - Она расхохоталась и стукнула его подушкой. - До тех пор, пока ты не объяснишь, что такое без воска. Ты сводишь меня с ума.

Его мощь основывалась не только на умопомрачительном количестве процессоров, но также и на достижениях квантового исчисления - зарождающейся технологии, позволяющей складировать информацию в квантово-механической форме, а не только в виде двоичных данных. Момент истины настал в одно ненастное октябрьское утро. Провели первый реальный тест. Несмотря на сомнения относительно быстродействия машины, в одном инженеры проявили единодушие: если все процессоры станут действовать параллельно, ТРАНСТЕКСТ будет очень мощным.
Профессор вертел кольцо в пальцах и изучал надпись. - Читайте медленно и точно! - приказал Джабба.
Сколько времени он уже занят поиском. Открылось окно - такие же цифровые часы, как на ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ, которые должны были показывать часы и минуты работы Следопыта. Однако вместо этого Сьюзан увидела нечто совершенно иное, от чего кровь застыла в жилах. СЛЕДОПЫТ ОТКЛЮЧЕН Следопыт отключен. У нее даже перехватило дыхание.
Новые обязанности Сьюзан были засекречены, в том числе и для многих людей в высших эшелонах власти. - Шифры, - задумчиво сказал Беккер - Откуда ты знаешь, с чего начинать. То есть… как ты их вскрываешь. Сьюзан улыбнулась: - Уж ты-то мог бы это понять. Это все равно что изучать иностранный язык.
