The role of private equity in global capital markets has had a profound effect on both the U.S. and global economy. It has emerged as a valuable tool for bringing capital, operating efficiency, and top-notch operating talent to under-performing companies that desire the strategic flexibility afforded by operating under private ownership. Although it has undoubtedly had a significant (and positive) impact on the businesses in which it has invested, its influence is far greater. It approaches to capitalization, organization, and operations are increasingly influencing the strategic decisions of publically-traded firms as such companies look for ways to enhance shareholder value and compete in cutthroat global markets.
