Value Creation in Leveraged Buyouts - Analysis of Factors Driving Private Equity Investment Performance


 

Based on a dataset of over 3,000 leveraged buyout transactions, including performance data, Nicolaus Loos analyses how financial investors create economic value through their investments. He shows that various exogenous factors with respect to timing, industry, public market as well as deal specific factors can statistically be related to a buyout deal's performance. He also provides evidence of a 'GP effect' in leveraged buyouts, i.e. that certain characteristics of a Private Equity firm and its investment professionals as well as a firm's buyout strategy approach and certain buyout target characteristics are important success factors.



Dr. Nicolaus Loos promovierte bei Prof. Dr. Martin Hilb am IFPM Institut der Universität St. Gallen und forschte am Buyout Research Center am INSEAD. Er ist als Investment Banker für den Bereich Private Equity bei J.P. Morgan in New York, USA tätig.
