The media industry is a lot like a pyramid -- from a distance, everyone gazes up at the top. Those up close, however, realize that the real ingenuity – not to mention the largest number of building blocks – can be found at the bottom and in the middle.
This market structure is expected to become even more pronounced over the next several years, as the operative media buzzword will continue to be “fragmentation.” Private equity investors can capitalize on this trend, but it won’t be easy. You must become fluent in new distribution technologies, correctly foresee evolving information consumption preferences, and be able to pounce – selectively -- when a mega-deal like Clear Channel results in major non-core asset divestitures.
In 2006, the global media market already has received more private equity dollars than in either 2004 or 2005, for a variety of reasons:
At this special MasterClass, you’ll learn from a faculty of 20 people who work directly on private equity transactions in the media space. This includes private equity investors, lenders, attorneys, consultants, turnaround specialists, and portfolio company CEOs. They will share lessons learned from their own experiences, plus let you know what to expect from this dynamic market going forward.
The program is being led by George Cole, a managing director with Veronis Suhler Stevenson, a New York City-based private equity and research firm focused on the media, communications, and information industries. Prior to joining VSS in 2000, Cole was co-head and managing director of First Union (now Wachovia) Securities’ Media and Entertainment Investment Banking group. He will be giving a keynote address about the state of the media industry, with a particular focus on the current M&A and financing environment for middle-market companies. Expect him to touch on his personal experiences with such companies as Schofield Media, TMP Worldwide and Gallo Holdings – recent VSS investments where he currently holds seats on their boards.
The program is being produced by The Capital Roundtable, the country's only educational information organization focused exclusively on the information needs of the middle-market and smaller-market private-equity communities. It is being sponsored by the law firm of Loeb & Loeb, market leaders in representing media companies and their investors.
If you are a private equity or hedge fund manager, or if you are a senior or junior lender serving private equity sponsors, or if you provide professional services to the private equity community, this essential program is designed to give you information you need to make successful investment decisions, as well as numerous opportunities to build new valuable relationships with a host of expert speakers and inquisitive attendees.
And if you wish, the day before, you can attend a special three-hour workshop called “Fundamentals of Buying Out -- & Buying Into -- Media Companies,” in which four specialists will review key aspects of investing in the media industry, e.g., due-diligence, structuring, recruiting, distribution, and intellectual property.
