CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Introduction to Private Equity is a critical yet grounded guide to the private
equity industry. Far more than just another introductory guide, the book blends
academic rigour with practical experience to provide a critical perspective of
the industry from a professional who has worked at many levels within the
industry, including insurance, funds of funds, funds and portfolio companies.
The book looks at private equity from the point of view of the individual or
the business. How is a private business valued? How is the acquisition
transaction processed? What are the due diligence issues that should be
considered before moving ahead? A valuable insight to a rather opaque market.
Introduction to Private Equity covers the private equity industry as a whole,
highlighting its historical development in order to put its recent development
into perspective. The book covers its organization, governance and function,
then details the various segments within the industry, including LBO, Venture
Capital, Mezzanine Financing, Growth Capital and beyond. Finally, it offers a
framework to anticipate and understand its future developments.
It provides a balanced perspective on the current corporate governance
challenges which are affecting the industry and draws perspective to understand
the evolution of the sector, following one of its major crises.
