I have a couple housekeeping items for ya this chilly Friday morning:
You may have noticed a big change on the Buyouts website. We finished up a redesign of the site that we believe brings it up to the standards of today’s best media platforms. The best part is, this will be an ongoing evolution, so as we add new functionality to our offering, we’ll incorporate it into the site. For example, once we get the PE HUB Podcast back in operation (which we will!), we have a special section just for that.
As always, hit me up with your thoughts, good and bad — I want to hear what you think. I’m at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Awards: Friends, it’s that time again. The days are shorter. The temperature is dropping. And Buyouts is now accepting nominations for its 20th annual Deal of the Year awards, honoring exceptional buyouts that were fully or mostly realized in 2019. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 10, 2020, but there’s no time like the present to apply.
Don’t miss this opportunity to be recognized by the editors of Buyouts for your outstanding work in 2019. Past winners include Vista Equity, Goldman Sachs, KPS Capital Partners, Carlyle Group, Providence Equity, Levine Leichtman and Arbor Investments.
Winners will be selected in six categories (and an overall Deal of the Year winner, which could come from an existing category or be completely separate):
· Deal of the Year
· Large-market deal of the Year
· Middle-market deal of the Year
· Small-market deal of the Year
· Turnaround of the Year
· Secondaries of the Year
· International deal of the Year
