Private Equity Practitioner Workshop

Private equity is a long-term equity investment in an unlisted company. It comes in two variants: venture capital and leveraged buyouts. While venture capital invests in companies in the early stages of their lives, the focus of buyouts is on mature companies.

The workshop will first look at private equity from the perspective of an investor in private equity funds; it will then look separately into the characteristics of the investments that venture capital funds and leveraged buyout funds make.

Taking the investor’s point of view, we will discuss: private equity forms; private equity nomenclature; the partnership agreement, including the compensation/incentive scheme; and the risk/return profile. Then we will look at the investments made by venture capital funds and discuss the venture capital method for valuation, information problems, value adding activities and the contractual provisions that venture capital funds put in place. On the topic of leverage buyout funds, we will discuss value adding activities over the last 20 years and financing forms currently in use.

The number of participants is limited. Please register as soon as possible.
