PRIVATE EQUITY

Private equity provides medium to long-term equity capital to growing companies. As equity holders, private equity investors share the full risks and rewards of ownership, thus keeping their interests aligned with the existing business owners.

 

Private equity prepares the company for a major capital event, like an initial public offering (IPO) or the entry of a strategic partner. Return on investment is realized when the major capital event occurs, typically several years after private equity initial investment.
