Investment success isn't just about the numbers.
It's about the people.
Specifically, the PE-CEO-CFO relationship.
Not every investment deal is made or broken on the numbers alone. The people—especially the relationships among PE sponsors and their portfolio companies’ executives—make the biggest difference.
AlixPartners’ latest survey findings shed light on how sponsors can sweeten the odds of success.
Recommended strategies include:
- Proactively assess those relationships and uncover dangerous misalignments between beliefs and behaviors in the pre-deal phase. Read more here.
- Skillfully manage portfolio CEOs and CFOs—including setting priorities and clarifying expectations—during those critical first 100 days post-deal.
The AlixPartners annual Private Equity Leadership Survey has for four years identified the gaps in communication, expectation and urgency between investors and the leaders of their portfolio companies. Not every deal is made or broken on the numbers alone. The people—especially the triangle between the Investor, CEO and CFO—are the keys to success.
AlixPartners leadership advisers routinely assess the impact of this three-way leadership dynamic in the deep data-driven analysis of portco potential and revenue opportunity.
