Third Annual MasterClass™ on Adding Value
To Middle-Market PE Portfolio Companies
Enhancing Portfolio Companies --
How Top PE Firms Are Using
To Build Value
Attendance Is Limited!
Hartley R. Rogers, Chairman
Featuring 20 Expert Speakers Including --
Thursday, September 24, 2009
8:00 am – 4:45 pm
Designed to Meet the Needs of GPs, LPs, & Managers of Buyout, Growth Equity,
You know how the recession and the credit crunch have clobbered the portfolio companies of middle-market private equity firms -- as well as changed the rules. And you know how making operational improvements is the one way you can enhance your portfolio companies’ future value.
Yet, unless you know what strategies others are using to maximize value, and what management tactics are working best in today’s difficult environment, you’re in for risky trial-and-error.
You have to decide just how you’re going to guide each individual portfolio company you own. From a distance, or from the C-suite? As a consultant, or a coach, or a commander? By bringing in advisors, or helping hands, or SWAT teams?
It’s a nuanced decision in each instance, and this one-day MasterClass™ from The Capital Roundtable, Thursday, September 24, in New York, is going to give you the know-how and the confidence to make a wise choice.
You’ll also benefit with another money-saving technique -- registering early. When you sign up now, you not only assure yourself of a seat but also receive a $300 early bird discount!
20 Leading Operations Executives Lead the Discussions.
This full-day MasterClass is being chaired by Hartley Rogers, chairman of distinguished Philadelphia-based PE asset management firm Hamilton Lane. Hartley focuses on the firm's strategic initiatives and direction as well as its investment decision-making through his participation on the firm’s investment committee. In addition, he is co-head of its direct-investment group. Formerly, he was a managing director in the private equity division of Credit Suisse First Boston, as well as a managing director of Morgan Stanley & Co.
Joining Hartley will be an all-new team of 20 panelists to share their multiple perspectives -- so if you attended one of our popular two previous MasterClasses, you’ll gain even more ideas and insights at this September event. Four fast-paced panel presentations will feature PE operations partners from funds of different sizes, well-known consultants, plus prominent specialists in such areas as executive compensation and performance appraisal.
If there’s one commodity in short supply today among LPs, it’s patience. Not that they expect miracles on your part -- just effort. You have to demonstrate to your investors that you’re spending the time fine-tuning portfolio company operations, and not settling for whatever seems to be mainstream.
So after you attend this day-long MasterClass, you’ll be extremely well-prepared for making progress. It’s our Third MasterClass™ on Adding Value to Middle-Market Portfolio Companies, and the takeaway is all-new -- unique management strategies that have proven themselves in today’s recession.
You’re On The Spot.
From 360-degree reviews to 100-day plans, we’ll bring you first-hand reports on the mandates and metrics that are helping portfolio companies like yours. You’ll be able to listen and learn from the people who are doing it right, and see how your techniques stack up against theirs.
And if bringing fresh talent aboard is part of the solution, you’ll be ready for that as well. We’ll be covering how to evaluate current portfolio company management, find potential hires, and determine the right fit. We’ll also share when and how to reduce staffing costs -- e.g., a recent survey of PE professionals reported that 88% have recently cut portfolio company headcount and 75% have implemented salary freezes.
In just one information-filled day you’ll have the tools and connections to add value throughout the structure of all your portfolio companies -- avoiding the pitfalls and seizing the opportunities. You’ll get the answers to such crucial topics as --
There’s No Substitute for Attending This MasterClass.
Nowhere else will you find such a focused presentation of actionable advice and guidance that you can put to immediate use. Plus you’ll have plenty of time to network with both fellow attendees and our featured speakers between panels and over lunch, so you can easily make contacts and ask specific questions.
Come to this MasterClass if you are a --
