Private equity (PE) acquisition refers to the process by which a private equity firm acquires a controlling or substantial stake in a company. Private equity firms are investment firms that pool together capital from various sources, such as institutional investors, pension funds, and wealthy individuals, to invest in privately held companies or to take public companies private. Private equity acquisitions can provide capital and expertise to help companies grow, improve their operations, or navigate challenging situations. However, they often involve a higher level of risk and may result in changes to the target company’s ownership structure and management team.

This Webinar will be a high-level introductory session about the tax structuring of private equity (PE) acquisitions. Topics would include what a typical PE structure looks like and key tax considerations related to structuring of acquisitions by PE.
