An Introduction to Private Equity
provides readers with an easy to read but thorough grounding in the key aspects of the private equity industry. It provides coverage of the industry as a whole, its organization, governance and function, then looks at the various segments within the industry, including LBO, Venture Capital, Mezzanine Financing, Development Capital and other components. The book then goes on to look at private equity from the perspective of the individual or the business, looking at how they value a business, how the transaction works and looks at some due diligence issued that should be considered before moving ahead. Finally the book will look at private equity in the future, and at how recent events are shaping the medium and long term.
