Private Equity Investing In Education-Focused Companies

In this politicized age, it seems like people don’t agree on much to do with education. For instance --

57% of Republicans support charter schools, versus just 36% of Democrats.

Only 33% of Republicans think spending on public schools in their district should be increased, versus 58% of Democrats.

Just 28% of Republicans believe college is worth the cost, versus 43% of Democrats.

If you’re a private investor, those stats may make you feel nervous. For instance, you may not want to invest in a for-profit college during Donald Trump’s administration, if the next president may be Elizabeth Warren and the rules may change again.

One path forward lies in something everyone can agree on -- that the U.S. education system needs to do better at preparing people for joining the workforce.

Private Equity Investing In Cannabis Industry Companies

Last year, the legal cannabis market in North America reached $10 billion and now is predicted to more than double by 2022!

Forward-thinking private equity investors -- often backed by high-net worth individuals and family offices, and sovereign trusts -- have already made their entry into this rapidly evolving market, despite the fact that cannabis currently remains illegal at the U.S. federal level.

Early PE movers in cannabis companies have invested in enterprises that showcase a wide range of opportunities. Meanwhile, mainstream private equity firms are taking a closer look at investment possibilities in cannabis and readying for future moves. Once U.S. federal legalization opens the sector’s doors to institutional investors, it will be a game-changer for the whole industry. Register Now!

Best Practices for Creating Value in PE Portfolio Companies

Pinched between hyper-valuations and competition for deals, PE firms are under the gun to super-size their returns.

As a result, operating partners focus most heavily on finding the right executives for their portfolio companies, as well as on partnering most effectively with their management teams generating better business insights, and driving high impact and results.

in Dental-Related Companies

Dental service organizations are for-profit companies that manage the back office operations of dentists’ practices. Called DSOs, they provide nuts-and-bolts management expertise for dentists, and they oversee the profitability of day-to-day non-clinical activities.

As of last year, the DSO market amounted to a whopping $73 billion! Despite that giant size, only 7% of all practicing U.S. dentists were affiliated with DSOs in 2017!

So the opportunity for expansion for middle-market private equity firms who buy and build DSO platforms seems bottomless.

What’s more, the population of dentists is skyrocketing. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, it’s projected to grow another 20% before 2026, far faster than the average rate for all occupations in the U.S.

And the growth rate for the DSO industry is expected to be an astonishing 13-to-14% each year through 2024.
