Leveraged Buyouts and Private Equity
Abstract: We describe and present time series evidence on the
leveraged buyout/private equity industry, both firms and transactions. We
discuss the existing empirical evidence on the economics of the firms and
transactions. We consider similarities and differences between the recent
private equity wave and the wave of the 1980s. Finally, we speculate on
what the evidence implies for the future of private equity.
