From the Editors

A highly competitive environment places a premium on finding creative ways to get deals done. Once those deals have consummated, there is often a need to secure additional financing for add-on acquisitions through the proper structuring of incremental debt. Strategies for debt (re)structuring are also relevant for companies grappling with a liquidity crunch. And aside from the nuts and bolts of transactions and financing, funds and companies must also contend with ongoing regulatory emphasis on disclosure regarding a range of topics.

This issue of the Private Equity Report explores several recent developments in dealmaking, financing and disclosure pertinent to the private equity community:
