About this book


Since 2000, technology companies have experienced dramatic losses in public market valuation. The question is whether this decline in prices opened the door for a concept hardly yet applied to this sector: leveraged and management buyouts.

Tilman E. Pohlhausen explains why buyouts of companies in the technology sector have barely taken place and why this is changing. He shows how the attractiveness of a buyout target can be estimated, what makes analyzing technology buyouts different from traditional buyouts, and why there might be opportunities for private equity investors in the European technology markets. The author provides a free MS Excel model on the book's accompanying web-site that allows the screening of major technology indices using a fully adjustable scoring model to identify potentially attractive buyout targets.
