What is
private equity?

Private equity refers to the business of administering and allocating capital mainly from institutions and endowments for the purpose of investing and acquiring ownership in companies.

These funds are managed by a team of experienced investments professionals who participate in the companies they invest in by selecting senior management and through the Board of Directors and different Executive Committees.

A key metric for sizing private equity investments is EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) which is generally a good proxy for the cash generation of companies. When private equity firm invests in a company, they work together with the company's management in order to significantly increase EBITDA, organically and by performing add-on acquisitions.

Private equity investments are of medium term nature, they must be divested after three to five years in order to return cash to its original investors.
