Editorial

Thursday, March 27, 2014

Welcome to the latest issue of Private Equity Strategies. This month is heavily focused on new regulatory changes for M&A and corporate finance brokers. Changes outlined in this two-parter signal a shift happening the SEC you won’t want to miss.

Regs Watch offers updates on a full scope of new guidelines, including calls for regulatory changes in the UK and a new video discussing what the current carried interest tax structure means for private equity. This month we also have a Regs Note which covers expiring tax provisions in the US tax code that could impact portfolio companies.

Movers and Shakers looks at new deal activity from Virgnia-based Quad-C Management.

Finally, we offer brief updates on recent transactions and people moves in Quick Hits. Our events calendar will look at the events kicking off 2014. Please send any updates or feedback on this publication to me at mccann@opalesque.com - I’d love to hear from you.

Best,
