The private equity landscape is changing at a dramatic pace. Years of record capital inflows and unprecedented transaction leverage have given way to a far more challenging environment. Fundraising and financing both have become more difficult, while the economy continues to create headwinds for portfolio companies. Complexity has increased across the entire investment cycle - from opportunity sourcing, investment diligence and financing, to operational improvement and exit management.
Parthenon’s Private Equity Practice has worked with leading private equity firms since 2001 across a range of services and activities. We help firms decide what to buy and evaluate where to expand their investment activity. Finally, we work with our clients to realize the full potential of their investment theses through operating value creation of their portfolio companies.
We have worked on more than 1,300 due diligence assignments, supporting clients at every stage in the process with a rigorous, fact-based, and analytical approach. In the past three years alone we helped our clients complete more than 100 investment transactions. This record of successful investment support reflects the spirit of partnership that Parthenon brings to every engagement. Accountability and shared risk are core values for our firm, and we put them into action every day through consulting-for-equity, discretionary success fees, and other alternative compensation structures. Throughout the years, we have worked with more than 75 general partnerships, and our roster of more than 30 loyal and ongoing clients attests to the firm’s incisive insights, practical orientation and flexibility in aligning incentives with our clients.
