CEPRES 2017 US BO-Growth Revenue Multiple Chart V2
Dislocation in Western Private Equity Markets

CEPRES released their latest analysis this week showing that recently the US buyout market is driven by revenue growth, whereas in Europe buyout pricing is driven rather by operating income. The analysis used the CEPRES PE.Analyzer investment decision platform to analyze over $12 trillion of PE transactions to illustrate the disparity of buyout deal pricing drivers between North America and Europe and the higher end of the market versus the lower. The analysis shows US Buyout/Growth deals in the top quartile are priced with the highest premium paid for revenue since 1999, while EBITDA multiples are steady. Conversely in Europe, top quartile Buyout/Growth deals are paying a premium for operating income reflected in higher than normal EBITDA multiples, while revenue multiples are steady.

Protecting From the Crash With Private Infrastructure Assets

CEPRES today released an analysis demonstrating how Private (unlisted) Infrastructure can act as a Hedge for Corporate Bonds, whilst significantly outperforming on returns. Using PE.Analyzer to analyze thousands of privately held Infrastructure assets, CEPRES found that since 2002 there was a beta (co-movement) to the US Corporate Bond market of -0.9 and an alpha of 19.5%.

The results were derived from the new PE.Analyzer ‘Alpha Beta Framework’ that uses regression analysis to calculate the risk adjusted return (alpha), together with the correlation (beta) to an underlying market – in this case US Corporate Bonds. This new feature is ground breaking and brings private market investing to the same level as public market trading, because previously it was so challenging to perform this type of analysis based on reliable data.

Value Creation – CEPRES Proves Private Equity Gets It Right

CEPRES today released a unique analysis that demonstrates Private Equity is enhancing value in operating companies. By analyzing thousands of PE-backed Operating Companies, CEPRES found that since the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) there has been a steady and significant increase in Average Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of EBITDA for PE-backed Companies. Further, CEPRES found that increase in valuation of companies post GFC is driven more by EBITDA Growth than prior years.

Dr. Daniel Schmidt, CEO comments: “There has been significant speculation about the role of private equity managers as activist investors and whether they actually create value. Now, for the first time ever, we have hard evidence for investors (LPs) and fund managers (GPs) to benchmark their investee companies. It is positive to see such a clear trend and to have the ability to measure and compare these results when investing in private equity. There can be variations for different strategies, sectors, etc. and we encourage participants to get in touch for specific samples.”

The analysis showed that buyout investments exhibit increased returns versus the comparative stock markets following economic downturns.

Protecting From the Crash With Private Infrastructure Assets

CEPRES today released an analysis demonstrating how Private (unlisted) Infrastructure can act as a Hedge for Corporate Bonds, whilst significantly outperforming on returns. Using PE.Analyzer to analyze thousands of privately held Infrastructure assets, CEPRES found that since 2002 there was a beta (co-movement) to the US Corporate Bond market of -0.9 and an alpha of 19.5%.

The results were derived from the new PE.Analyzer ‘Alpha Beta Framework’ that uses regression analysis to calculate the risk adjusted return (alpha), together with the correlation (beta) to an underlying market – in this case US Corporate Bonds. This new feature is ground breaking and brings private market investing to the same level as public market trading, because previously it was so challenging to perform this type of analysis based on reliable data.

CAGR EBITDA
Value Creation – CEPRES Proves Private Equity Gets It Right

CEPRES today released a unique analysis that demonstrates Private Equity is enhancing value in operating companies. By analyzing thousands of PE-backed Operating Companies, CEPRES found that since the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) there has been a steady and significant increase in Average Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of EBITDA for PE-backed Companies. Further, CEPRES found that increase in valuation of companies post GFC is driven more by EBITDA Growth than prior years.

Dr. Daniel Schmidt, CEO comments: “There has been significant speculation about the role of private equity managers as activist investors and whether they actually create value. Now, for the first time ever, we have hard evidence for investors (LPs) and fund managers (GPs) to benchmark their investee companies. It is positive to see such a clear trend and to have the ability to measure and compare these results when investing in private equity. There can be variations for different strategies, sectors, etc. and we encourage participants to get in touch for specific samples.”

Brexit Silver Lining For Private Equity Investors

CEPRES today released analysis showing how dislocation between macro-economic cycles and buyout performance can lead to increased returns for smart investors. CEPRES analyzed market pricing of Financial Services companies following economic downturns and compared to investment returns of Private Equity investments during the same periods. The analysis showed that buyout investments exhibit increased returns versus the comparative stock markets following economic downturns.

CEPRES CEO Dr. Daniel Schmidt states: “With all the doom and gloom over Brexit and its impact on world markets, this could be a silver lining for PE investors in Financial Services companies. Smart Fund Managers (GPs) can take advantage of this type of market dislocation to deliver better returns to their investors (LPs).”

Protecting From the Crash With Private Infrastructure Assets

CEPRES today released an analysis demonstrating how Private (unlisted) Infrastructure can act as a Hedge for Corporate Bonds, whilst significantly outperforming on returns. Using PE.Analyzer to analyze thousands of privately held Infrastructure assets, CEPRES found that since 2002 there was a beta (co-movement) to the US Corporate Bond market of -0.9 and an alpha of 19.5%.

The results were derived from the new PE.Analyzer ‘Alpha Beta Framework’ that uses regression analysis to calculate the risk adjusted return (alpha), together with the correlation (beta) to an underlying market – in this case US Corporate Bonds. This new feature is ground breaking and brings private market investing to the same level as public market trading, because previously it was so challenging to perform this type of analysis based on reliable data.
