Pepper Hamilton and The Deal recently released the results of a new survey of private equity executives which demonstrated the importance of operational improvement and the thought that private equity firms put into the process.

This was a topic of a recent webinar by The Deal featuring Pepper partner Bruce K. Fenton; 3i North America managing partner Ken Hanau; and Clearview Capital Co-Founder and Managing Partner Jim Andersen.

Global economic uncertainties continue to weigh on markets and M&A activity. In this environment, middle-market private equity companies must be more resourceful than ever in unearthing opportunities, maximizing in-house resources and paving the way for long-term performance. Private equity firms have had to refocus on operational improvements within companies rather than financial engineering to create value and returns. It's especially important to ensure that managers have a tried approach to tackle thorny due diligence issues pre- and post-close, metrics that can consistently track performance and - critically - experience in integrating acquisitions.

What strategies are private equity firms using? Which industries are these strategies most effective for? How are operating partners using technology to make their businesses more efficient? How much of a role do limited partners have in improving operations? What trends should you look for in the coming year?

Watch The Deal's live video webcast where we discuss these issues and many more.
