Description

The "Think Like Private Equity: How PE firms buy companies & maximize returns" panel is specifically designed for business owners and principals interested in gaining insights on what is different in a professional buyer's process. Why are PE firms generally successful when they buy a business?

  • Do they evaluate the financials of a business differently?
  • What is this "Quality of Earnings" term PE firms throw around?
  • What makes their legal professionals so efficient?
  • What kind of financing tools do they use?
  • What is a "roll forward"?
  • Do PE firms evaluate a businesses' team for unique characteristics?

This panel will answer these questions and more. Whether you are thinking about growing through acquisition or even positioning your company for sale to Private Equity in the future, these panelists work with PE almost daily and will give you an insider's perspective into what makes Private Equity firms successful.
