74% of value-creating deals delivered revenue growth - but, this value lever still received less focus than cost-cutting.

With a proven track record of creating value through cost efficiencies, private equity firms are in a great position to look at how a deal can create even more value by increasing revenues. Our Creating value beyond the deal: private equity report explores how leading PE dealmakers approach value creation throughout a deal.

The findings of the report reinforce our perspective that an effective value creation approach for PE, needs to focus on:

  • Driving value through revenue enhancement
  • Enhancing strategic clarity early on
  • Keeping a closer eye on talent retention and culture
  • Boosting exit opportunities through rigorous planning

    “The leading private equity players have a value creation model where they monitor and record the value creation achieved on every deal they do, including the levers for that value. It’s absolutely at the heart of their culture.”
