Editorial

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Welcome to the June issue of Private Equity Strategies. This issue we will be featuring some new market sector coverage along with a few recent updates from stories we’ve covered before.

In a new feature - MicroCap Monitor we are looking at DelMar Pharmaceuticals, which has been making the rounds following a recent IPO. The company is gaining the attention of both private equity and alternatives investors based on recent cancer treatment trials in the US and abroad.

In our Dealmakers Q&A we speak with StoneCapital Partners to learn about community bank investing, which may be some of the cleanest assets available in the market today. An update from the Russian Direct Investment Fund features a new fund launched with the Abu Dabi Investment Company along with new interest in infrastructure.

In Regs watch we bring new you changes in regulation that may have a significant impact for private equity firms.

In Movers and Shakers Evercore Partners raises its largest fund to date for investements in Mexico. And in The Next Generation we highlight a bit of a row happening in the UK between the British Venture Capital Association and local business schools on the impact of PE investments on employment.

As always in Quick Hits we bring you the latest fund news and events. I welcome your feedback and hope you enjoy the issue and the summer season. Please send me any updates, thoughts, tips or comments.

Best,

Bailey McCann
