Welcome to the October issue of Private Equity Strategies, and happy fall! This month we are heavily focused on Microcap and emerging companies. A variety of new datapoints are emerging, and all of them point to Microcap as a hotspot for IPOs and deal flow. Microcap Monitor returns with David Bukzin, a Partner at Marcum where he works with private equity and microcap companies on a variety of accounting issues. He discusses dealflow trends and accounting changes on the horizon.
Following this theme we’ll crunch the numbers with a piece Perritt Capital Partners has submitted on active Microcap versus private equity.
Regs Watch will take us through some other notable regulation changes.
In our Movers and Shakers section we highlight Bregal-Sagemount’s recent investment in civic startup Accela. Civic startups have recently attracted the attention of VC’s and are a rapidly growing sector.
In Tools of the Trade, Deborah Prutzman, of the Regulatory Fundamentals Group has contributed a piece on what the SEC looks for when it examines a private equity or venture capital firm.
