The Role of Private Equity for Firms Restructuring: The Going Private Strategy
Posted: 5 Jan 2013
Date Written: January 1, 2013
In this paper we consider the role of private equity for growth and restructuring processes, through the analysis of a comprehensive dataset of European going private deals during the period 1998-2007, for which we explore the post-transaction operating performance of companies gone private and potential variables that can explain this choice. We show that the presence of a private equity provider appears to positively affect long-term performance, especially when the target company is large and needs to embark on a complex restructuring process.
