Course overview
The private equity market operates within a complex landscape where the interplay of private and public company valuations significantly impacts both the initial cost of investment for PE firms and their ultimate exit strategies. Recent trends show a decline in private market entry multiples, even amidst a rebound in public market valuations. This divergence may signal attractive buying opportunities for PE firms and a potential future opening for delayed IPOs as a profitable exit strategy. However, falling valuations for existing portfolio companies add complexity. To adapt, PE firms are likely to focus on sectors less susceptible to market fluctuations, emphasize operational improvement as a value driver, and explore strategic alternatives like carve-outs and growth equity investments.sharemore_vert
