Acquisitions & Exits (IPO, LBO, SBO, etc.)

Private equity generates returns by selling its stake in a business for a greater cost than that which it was initially acquired for, thereby creating a capital gain.

This process is called an exit and is achieved through selling an investor’s stake in a company, usually through listing on the public markets in an initial public offering (IPO), selling to a strategic buyer (a trade sale or secondary buyout) or selling the company to the management (buy-back).

The following papers look at acquisitions, valuations, share prices and different exit scenarios, comparing their performance over time and analysing the impact of the investment once the exit is completed.
