IVCA Releases Newest 'IVCA Viewpoint'

May 27, 2015

The newest edition of the IVCA Viewpoint was released last week via mail to all IVCA individual members and is available online.  This edition builds on our prior publications "I am a Private Equity Investor" and "Private Equity/Public Good: The Case for an Essential Industry".

Titled "Partnering for Growth", this new edition focuses on the importance and impact of the partnership that develops between investor portfolio company as they enable growth of a company.  It explores via case studies the partnership's shared goals of growth in revenue, employment and the bottom line.

Each case study identifies with a different scenario for equity investment in a private company:

  • Giordano's, with investor Victory Park Capital, is the study of a Turnaround Company.
  • Fieldglass, with Prism Capital and Madison Dearborn Partners, is a study of both a very early-stage investment and continued equity investments to enable exponential growth.
  • Navman Wireless, with Prairie Capital, is the story of a Carve-out Company from a corporate parent.
