The Effects of Private Equity on Performance of European Companies
Epuri, Vladimir (2015) The Effects of Private Equity on Performance of European Companies. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)]
This dissertation investigates the effects of private equity (PE) financing on performance of target companies. The analysis is based on a sample of 1,014 European buyouts between 2005 and 2014 and a control sample of non-buyouts constructed using propensity score matching methodology. The endogenous nature of PE buyout decision is taken into consideration by using instrumental variable approach.
