International Private Equity
Written from a unique joint practitioner and academic perspective by renowned experts in the field, International Private Equity is designed to be truly international in focus, with examples and case studies drawn from Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia, and from a wide range of business sectors. The case studies, taken from the collection of the London Business School's prestigious Coller Institute of Private Equity, are used to exemplify and illustrate all stages of the private equity deal process.
To provide a context for these illustrative case studies, which make up the last section of the book, International Private Equity first covers all of the main aspects of the private equity model:
- Part one provides an overview of the subject and a private equity fund level analysis, including coverage of fund economics, fund performance measurement, private equity investments in emerging markets, fund due diligence, fund accounting, the secondaries market for fund interests and alternative fund structures such as fund of funds and listed private equity funds.
- Part two moves onto analysis at deal level, and covers topics such as valuation of private equity companies, deals analysis and due diligence, LBO transactions and modelling, post deal execution and the harvesting of private equity investments.
- Part three deals with early stage investing and includes chapters on Business Angel investing and Venture Capital.
