September 24, 2020; 1:00PM – 2:00PM PDT: Driving Value in Private Equity Portfolio Companies Post COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted most industries and businesses worldwide, including many private equity portfolio companies. Critical operational issues have become crisis management, contingency planning, supply chain, labor, capital accessibility, liquidity and cybersecurity among, among others. Typically, many of these issues are not addressed at the time of acquisition, particularly given the relatively short time horizon of PE-held entities. In the “new normal,” PE, as a $4 trillion industry, will have to focus on significant operational improvements and building the business enterprise, as financial engineering alone is not sufficient to drive value and returns.
Undoubtedly, the overall business decline will create distressed acquisition opportunities, both platform and add-on, and significant upside potential as the economies recover.
The panel of expert will discuss strategies and best practices in building corporate value in the portfolio post-COVID-19.
