Masterclass : Excellence in Private Equity & Deal Structuring


A strong understanding of private equity and deal structuring has become a necessity for all players in the financial eco-system, including the staff of sovereign wealth funds. Besides fund managers, small, growing companies, as well as established corporates need private equity or venture capital to fund their growth strategies. Private equity is now intricately linked to mergers and acquisition and buyout transactions in complex ways. For example, a small firm can now acquire a much larger firm with supplemental
private equity.

This practical course is presented from three standpoints: Firstly, from the point of view of private equity funds, secondly, from the standpoint of companies and entrepreneurs who are seeking private equity and venture capital and thirdly on deal structuring solutions. Case studies of private equity transactions in China and other Asian countries like India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan and Singapore will be used to illustrate key concepts.

The Master class will cover several deal structuring techniques relating to private equity, venture capital and buyout deals. Deal structuring issues and solutions will be illustrated and discussed for various stages and components of private equity transactions. Deal structuring diagrams will be used to maximize clarity of understanding.

On Day 1, participants will learn how private equity funds are established in conformity with global best practice, how investments are selected by fund managers, how due diligence is performed, how fund managers add value to portfolio companies and how investments are exited. On Day 2, participants will learn the investment strategies of buyout funds and how buyouts and leveraged buyouts are structured and executed.
