What drives outperformance in private equity deals?

The latest findings from Ernst & Young's annual research on how private equity investors create value continue to show that private equity-owned businesses outperform public company benchmarks. We've looked at the largest 2007 exits and combined this year's findings with analysis of more than 300 deals globally from the past three years.

This session can help you to understand and apply the drivers of outperformance that private equity funds have used to create value in their investments. Brad Kuntz - “ co-leader of the study and the leader of Ernst & Young's commercial due diligence practice - “ will lead the discussion.
