Private Equity Deals

Lessons in investing, dealmaking, and operations from private equity professionals

By Ted Seides

Jacket text

Over the past 20 years, the private equity industry went from a cottage industry to a powerful juggernaut that touches every corner of the global economy. Totalling $5 trillion of investments, private equity constitutes an important investment allocation for public and corporate pension funds, university endowments, non-profit foundations, hospitals, insurance companies, families, and sovereign wealth funds worldwide.

There’s no more important sector of institutional portfolios or the global economy to understand than private equity. Private equity owned businesses are everywhere around us and touch every aspect of our daily lives.

In Private Equity Deals, Ted Seides gives you an insight to the conversations that typically happen behind the closed doors of institutional investors and private equity managers. Through a series of case studies across different types of private equity transactions, Private Equity Deals shares the dynamics of deal making, companies, and ownership that make private equity a force in the world.
