The Private Equity Landscape – Redefined!
|This year, the C-19 pandemic has pressed pause on much of the global economy and markets, including the Private Equity funding landscape and deal-making. With recovery slowly emerging on the horizon, some excellent buyout opportunities for PE firms arise. Existing businesses and new ventures are adapting to the new normal, recognising more and more opportunities in the current crisis, and so investors’ optimism regarding long-term returns is increasing.|
More PE firms are resuming their deal making, however, what they’re looking for and their attitudes may be different. This is an opportunity for business founders as well, where investors may prefer to have more say in the business, focusing on providing advice, getting involved in contingency planning, or paying more attention to a viable exit strategy.
How we operate, including forming and managing the investor relationships and process of capital raising is likely to experience permanent changes, reshuffling its priorities around different industries’ valuation figures, confidence in returns, and growth strategies. Strategic partnerships and acquisitions are likely to become vital in capturing market share, and if your company has not considered them before, now it may be the time when your investors will expect that.

- KapVista’s Ecosystem EducationThe Research and development (R&D) tax incentive is the government’s key mechanism to stimulate Australian industry’s investment in R&D. R&D is often the first critical step in innovation, it drives technological improvements which lead to productivity improvements and increased economic growth. Unfortunately, companies tend to underinvest in R&D for several reasons, including:◆ not being able to capture the benefits of their R&D because new knowledge tends to leak out or ‘spill over’ to benefit competitors and the rest of the economy ◆ difficulties finding external finance because of uncertainties around the likely success of their R&D projects.This is why the government has a role to play in encouraging industry to invest more in R&D. The tax incentive offers a way for companies to invest in R&D while alleviating some of their initial reasons for not investing.
- What they don’t tell you about capital raisingSuccessfully raising venture capital is a goal for many business founders. An influx of cash can be vital not only to growth, but also liquidity and maintaining day-to-day operations. However, whilst many focus on the outcome of getting the capital, it is important not to forget the downsides, pitfalls, and challenges that are underway before a raise is completed.
- Mastering the pitch: What they don’t teach you about presentingWhether you’re only starting to plan raise capital, or have been doing this for a while, being able to present your ideas efficiently is a vital skill at any stage. Preparation is key – of course – however, what’s equally important yet often goes underestimated, is the thought and effort that must go into delivery and presentation.
