To shed light upon the present economy, revelation shows the sudden birth and emergence of innumerable startup companies. Another fact showcased is that many of these end up as small and middle sized enterprises struggling to grow, mostly due to lack of funds. To start this venture requires capital, its working and developing also requires finance. A steady cash flow is not enough to invest in equipment, latest technology, more human resources and other requirements. The same is the concern of many organizations, which although large, have troubled cash flow and hence are unable to perform fully.
The companies often struggle with banks and insurance companies, as they have their own loan limits, and the interest over the debt might be high enough to repay. Several other factors are responsible, due to which the firms are unable to receive any financial help from the banks. To fill this wide gap, there are private equities that are increasingly looking forward to these opportunities. The investors use both debt and equity to acquire an emerging firm. Hence, these are not venture stage investments rather those, which help the company, grow.
Marc J Leder, co-founder of the private equity Sun Capital Partners Capital Inc. and presently it is Co-CEO, started this venture by investing in underdeveloped and struggling companies. Unlike him, other equity firms focus on evolving firms doing considerably well and having potential to incur more profit. However, he saw the talent and potential of some underperforming companies, found their weakness and accepted the challenge of improving its situations.
With the constant rise in the e-commerce sector, many investors have preferred e-tailers for buyouts. Since its growth trajectory is comparatively high and rapid as compared to other fields, large deals are happening between private equities and e-tailers. This also somehow hinders the growth of national and international economy since other sectors lack considerable funds. To balance this, there is a need of investors like Marc J Leder, who find it necessary to invest in companies from diverse fields. He is a leader and a supervisor who pays attention to every little detail, makes strategies as to what requires immediate alteration and how. He is a dedicated true professional who values his and other’s work.
The work of the private equity involves tons of research work, looking deep into the details of the company, its potential to grow, its current cash flow and much more. The task of private equity firms after acquisitions begins to multiply. Making new strategies to improve business plans and multiply its sales and services. A good management team is very essential for the regular functioning of the company. Their role is to look after it in the absence of leaders and investors and lead the workforce towards the directed path.
The private equity also has to preplan an exit strategy. The usual concept is to resell the acquired company after the span of five to seven years, or once it develops to attain a strong hold in the market.
