In May 2012, Merrill DataSite hosted the first in a series of webinars to address the current state of private equity investment globally. Through this second installment, our panelists will discuss the challenges in the private equity market from a European perspective.

The level of private equity driven M&A and IPO activity currently is certainly not at the pace one might expect. Increasingly, we’re seeing private equity firms holding onto their portfolio companies longer, often infusing additional capital and extending the terms of their funds. At the same time, prospective strategic and financial buyers are on the sidelines with a lot of un-invested capital. Given this environment, how have private equity experts adapted their process, and how might their insights apply to your transactions in the coming year?
Topics for discussion:
How the European market is different from other geographies in terms of the private equity landscape?
Whether there is a disconnect between buyers and sellers in terms of valuation.
How to successfully pursue a dual track to maximize valuation and bring deals to completion?
What economic factors are at play and how they impact exit strategies?
Which industries and regions present the best opportunities?
