Private equity firms and corporations can make strange bedfellows.
One day they beat each other in auctions, with the highest bidder walking away with the trophy asset. The next day they may be happily dealing with one another, with the PE firm selling a portfolio company to the corporation -- or vice versa. Yet another day they may be teaming up to create a joint venture or strategic partnership.
To say that PE firms and corporations are frenemies is oversimplification. Their relationships have more than fifty shades of grey.
Deciphering the nuances of relationships between PE firms and corporations is hence critical to navigating the deal landscape successfully.
For example -- financial acquirers need to be wary of the inherent advantages of their corporate rivals -- the proverbial “synergies” -- while at the same time be ready to play up their financial acumen and explore synergies within their own portfolios.
PE firms also need to learn how to identify orphan units within corporations -- and to convince corporate parents to sell them at a reasonable price, given the complexity of “carving out” the business from the parent.
Both sides need to hone skills in working together in a myriad of types of partnerships -- joint ventures, licensing agreements, etc.
Here Are Three Key Reasons Why You Should Join Us
Corporations historically are the preferred acquirers of many private equity firms’ portfolio companies. The reason is pretty simple -- generally speaking, corporations can afford to pay more than financial buyers (again, synergies).
But selling a business that seems to be a perfect fit for a corporation isn’t a shoo-in, either, and instead takes careful planning and an expert understanding of the inner workings of the M&A process at the corporate buyer.
Meanwhile, buying assets or units from corporations can be more complicated and time-consuming than a PE acquirer anticipates. That’s partly because of a lack of independent back-office functions at the corporate side or the deeply intertwined relationship between the unit and the parent leading to carve-out risk, expense, and uncertainty.
Lastly, a partnership between PE and corporations, if done right, can be highly profitable to both sides, but if handled poorly, can be futile if not detrimental. Many licensing deals have foundered when the licensor or licensee encounters unintended consequences.
You’ll gain valuable insight as our panelists assess the outlook for strategic dealmaking when you attend The Capital Roundtable’s all-day conference on “Best Practices for Dealmaking Between PE Firms and Corporations” on Wednesday, April 11, 2018.
