Private equity funds invest in the equity of companies that are not publicly traded. Some of the primary strategies employed by private equity funds may be used to develop new products and technologies, to expand working capital, to make acquisitions, to strengthen a company’s balance sheet or to take a public company private.
The term “private equity” covers a wide spectrum of activities, ranging from venture capital at one end to various forms of corporate finance at the other.
Private equity may involve the acquisition of a private company with the intent of providing its founders the capital necessary to improve the firm’s performance.
Or it may involve “privatising” a public company in an effort to undertake improvements that would be difficult to achieve, given the short-term earnings focus of the public markets.
When evaluating potential investments, we focus primarily on the quality and experience of the management team. A candidate company's key managers should have a proven record of accomplishment, an exceptional ability to communicate the company's story to various audiences, and a deep commitment to creating value for shareholders.
We also look for a strong proprietary position; a clearly defined market for the company's products or services; and a realistic exit strategy for achieving liquidity for investors.
