Private Equity Strategies

Editorial

Monday, August 26, 2013

Welcome to the August issue of Private Equity Strategies. This month we have a power packed issue including news on regulation changes and several market trends that could lead the second half of the year.

Insider trends opens the issue with an in-depth discussion on M&A activity, and the potential impact crowdfunding will have on this and other parts of the transaction landscape now that JOBS Act rules are going into effect.

Following this theme we speak insurance and risk management advisors from Crystal & Company about often overlooked areas of transaction risk insurance, as well as changes in how the market uses and views those policies.

Regs Watch will take us through some other notable regulation changes.

In our Dealmakers Q&A we look at Waud Capital˘â‚¬â„˘s choice to merge two of its portfolio companies and still maintain a long-term investment in the resulting entity.

We also check in with the Small Business Investor Alliance on efforts to expand and improve the SBIC program with Congressional support. Attorneys for Schulte Roth & Zabel, John M. Pollack, David E. Rosewater, Michael E. Swartz and Pavel A. Shaitanoff have also contributed their top 10 considerations for portfolio companies looking to sell to a private equity firm.

Finally, as always, Quick Hits highlights new transactions and events to be aware of. Thanks again for your on-going feedback and tips, please keep them coming.

Best,

Bailey McCann
