Private Equity tips for business sellersAt our recent Winter Conference in Scottsdale, a select group of private equity firms participated in a discussion on the state of the M&A Industry, both from a current prospective and looking forward to 2011 and beyond.  Although each participant had a slightly different point of reference, there were definite commonalities that bode well for middle market companies.  The discussion included how private equity selects their portfolio companies, multiples, financing, due diligence and “deal killers”.  I wrote a summary of our discussion and it appears in the most recent edition of our Client Newsletter Capital Ideas.  Use this link to read the article in its entirety.
