In recent years, global private equity firms have emerged as a significant force in the world of high finance. With buy-in from the high-net-worth individuals and funds they enlist in various ventures, they've made successful moves to take control of trillions in assets under management. Some project private equity holdings to reach $5 trillion or higher by 2025.
In a highly competitive business world, private equity firms and public and private companies are looking for every growth opportunity they can possibly pursue. This includes acquiring other companies, merging with actual or potential competitors, or divesting assets that no longer deliver value. These courses of action have major potential for revenue generation — and in some cases are essential for survival.
Mergers, acquisitions, and divestments are among the riskiest and most complex business transactions. Many often fail because market conditions change, deals are never closed, or businesses encounter insurmountable difficulties afterwards. Private equity firms face an additional risk – the institutional shielding of a firm may not always insulate partners from the financial consequences of ill-advised investment decisions.
