Private equity is a source of capital from institutions and people with high liquidity for investing and acquiring equity ownership in companies. The partners of a private equity firm raise and manage the capital for yielding profits for their shareholders. The typical investment horizon for private equity is four to seven years.

The capital may be used to purchase shares of public or private limited companies that are delisted from stock exchanges. These companies often undergo a private transfer of ownership. The minimum amount of capital required for investment may vary depending on the fund raised and the policies of the private equity firm.

How does a private equity firm work?

A private equity firm will usually acquire 100% stake in the target company. It’ll then use a combination of debt and cash for financing the acquisition. A major advantage of using debt is that the firm has to invest less cash. The return on equity, thus, is higher and the firm can undertake more and bigger investments. Once the target company has been acquired, future cash flows are used for paying off the debt. If the firm has resorted to leveraging, they would require a financial sponsor. Banks, typically, come forward to lend money to private equity firms.

The aim of private equity firms is to take over a company or business, enhance its value, and then sell off its shares. Such a firm would typically target 20% returns each year. There are several ways by which the private equity firm can improve the business of the acquired company. These may involve changing the management, improving production efficiency, reducing costs and various other possible actions. A private equity investment is usually less risky compared to venture capital because the acquired company is usually large. Chances are unlikely that its value will collapse in the future.


Phases in private equity

Typically, there are three phases of private equity investing. They are as follows.

Capital commitment: The investor inks a legally binding agreement for paying a fixed amount of capital to the fund house for a period of time. This is usually three to five years.

Drawdown: The private equity fund manager draws down i.e. calls the committed capital of the investor in increments. This is because the fund managers find attractive investments, usually with five to 15 days prior notice.

Distribution: The investor gets a distribution when the fund exits the investment i.e. sells off the acquired company. The distribution is largely in cash but may be used to offset the future drawdowns.

Private equity versus venture capital

A venture capital firm often has a similar business model like that of a private equity. The focus, however, varies. Venture capital funds mostly invest their capital in startup and young companies. These companies usually don’t have any track record of performance. Buyout and private equity funds, on the other hand, invest capital in a more established business that has a high potential for growth and value appreciation. They enhance the performance of the business over a long period of time via strategic management, structural changes, and operational improvement.


Private equity versus hedge funds

Private equity funds seek to create value in the long term. Hedge funds, on their part, have a shorter investment horizon that’s more in line with the stock market movements. Private equity firms usually invest and own everything of a company and have a fixed line of interest with the managers in the company. This ensures that both the investors and the company attain the growth potential over time. They succeed only if the company returns robust numbers.

A hedge fund is a pool of capital. The money is invested in stocks, bonds, commodities and similar financial instruments and typically doesn’t involve purchasing a controlling stake in the company. Hedge funds try capitalizing on short-term market movements. They use a complex trading strategy that involves derivatives, options, and similar other instruments. In many cases, hedge funds bet against shares of the company they don’t own i.e. short selling, expecting to bag profits from the falling share prices.


Private equity money back strategies

Private equity firms usually get a return on their investment in one or all of the following ways.

Initial public offering (IPO): Shares of the acquired company are floated in the open market for the public to subscribe. It provides a prompt return on their investment via the sale of shares.

Merger or acquisition: The company’s shares may be sold to another company interested to own it. The sale may also happen on an all-cash deal.

Recapitalization: In this method, cash is distributed among the shareholders i.e. investors, either from the cash flow generated by the acquired company or by raising a debt or other securities for funding the distribution.

Andrew T. Carr

Financial Services Practitioner

Good review of a great industry of study and practice. As a past practitioner of the investment industry, It is good to see a site that does a decent job of summarizing the business of being an investment banker and the investment banking function versus retail or commercial banking functions. Many people do not easily make the destination.

Rakha Purbawisesa


It's very structured and easily understood for a student who didn't know anything about investment banks like me. However, They could make it better with a more detailed differences between investment banks and the boutique one, and add more entertaining animations and pictures. But overall it's amazing! 4.5/5!

Esuabom Dijemeni

Great introduction to learn how to create a company's profile

I really enjoyed the course 'Create Private Company Profiles for Pitch Books'. Firstly, the course provides a practical example of how to create a company's profile by using a real company. The 1 page created is good for in-house presentation. Most investment banks will have a creative department that will beautiful the slide and make it more visually appealing to investors. It is a good course to learn the barebone of making a company's profile.
