PENews Conference Call: Selling a Minority Stake in a PE Sponsor — Trends and Opportunities

PENews is our ongoing series of short, topical conference calls covering the issues most critical to private equity business professionals. On our call on May 25, 2017, Kirkland & Ellis partners Daniel Lavon-Krein, Don Rocap and David Lenzi gave an update on the rapidly growing and evolving market for sales of minority interests in private equity sponsor firms.

Topics included:

  • The "institutionalization" of the buy side for these deals, with the recent proliferation of private equity funds dedicated to acquiring interests in sponsors

  • Key tax and structuring considerations for sponsors

  • Recent innovations in structures and terms that have the potential to reshape the market
