“One of the finest, most compelling accounts of what happened to corporate America and Wall Street in the 1980’s.” —New York Times Book Review A #1 New York Times bestseller and arguably the best business narrative ever written, Barbarians at the Gate is the classic account of the fall of RJR Nabisco. An enduring masterpiece of investigative journalism by Bryan Burrough and John Helyar, it includes a new afterword by the authors that brings this remarkable story of greed and double-dealings up to date twenty years after the famed deal. The Los Angeles Times calls Barbarians at the Gate, “Superlative.” The Chicago Tribune raves, “It’s hard to imagine a better story...and it’s hard to imagine a better account.” And in an era of spectacular business crashes and federal bailouts, it still stands as a valuable cautionary tale that must be heeded.
Que nous souffrions d'un excès de poids chronique, d'une addiction, d'un développement de carrière insatisfaisant, de relations avec les autres frustrantes à répétition, d'une créativité étouffée, nous avons souvent tendance à penser que seul un changement radical, rapide, spectaculaire peut nous sortir de là. Et nous voilà presque découragés à l'avance devant l'ampleur de la tâche. Ou alors, une fois passée la bouffée d'enthousiasme initial, nous retombons dans nos anciens travers - et nous reprenons les kilos perdus. Or il existe une alternative pour atteindre ses ambitions, une méthode simple consistant à se fixer des objectifs modestes et progressifs, si faciles qu'il est impossible d'échouer. C'est le kaizen, utilisé par des entreprises dans le Japon de l'après-guerre, et que l'auteur, psychologue, a mis en pratique avec des patients, dont il relate ici les histoires. Appliqué dans des domaines aussi divers que l'épanouissement professionnel ou affectif, le développement de la créativité, la prise en charge de sa santé et de son corps, le kaizen, explique l'auteur, constitue une sorte d'auto-entraînement menant à un succès durable. Une analyse de nos comportements pleine de finesse et de compréhension, des exercices pratiques et des astuces qui nous aideront à dépasser nos résistances.
“Private equity is more economically significant than ever, as institutions hunt for high returns in a risky world. Private Equity 4.0 examines the role, workings and contribution of this important industry in a straightforward yet revealing manner.” Dr. Josh Lerner Jacob H. Schiff Professor of Investment Banking Chair, Entrepreneurial Management Unit Harvard Business School A multi-perspective look at private equity's inner workings Private Equity 4.0 provides an insider perspective on the private equity industry, and analyzes the fundamental evolution of the private equity asset class over the past 30 years, from alternative to mainstream. The book provides insightful interviews of key industry figures, and case studies of some of the success stories in the industry. It also answers key questions related to strategy, fund manager selection, incentive mechanisms, performance comparison, red flags in prospectuses, and more. Private Equity 4.0 offers guidance for the many stakeholders that could benefit from a more complete understanding of this special area of finance. Understand the industry's dominant business models Discover how value is created and performance measured Perform a deep dive into the ecosystem of professionals that make the industry hum, including the different incentive systems that support the industry's players Elaborate a clear set of guidelines to invest in the industry and deliver better performance Written by a team of authors that combine academic and industry expertise to produce a well-rounded perspective, this book details the inner workings of private equity and gives readers the background they need to feel confident about committing to this asset class. Coverage includes a historical perspective on the business models of the three major waves of private equity leading to today's 4.0 model, a detailed analysis of the industry today, as well as reflections on the future of private equity and prospective futures. It also provides readers with the analytical and financial tools to analyze a fund's performance, with clear explanations of the mechanisms, organizations, and individuals that make the system work. The authors demystify private equity by providing a balanced, but critical, review of its contributions and shortcomings and moving beyond the simplistic journalistic descriptions. Its ecosystem is complex and not recognizing that complexity leads to inappropriate judgments. Because of its assumed opacity and some historical deviant (and generally transient) practices, it has often been accused of evil intents, making it an ideal scapegoat in times of economic crisis, prodding leading politicians and regulators to intervene and demand changes in practices. Unfortunately, such actors were often responding to public calls for action rather than a thorough understanding of the factors at play in this complex interdependent system, doing often more harm than good in the process and depriving economies of one of their most dynamic and creative forces. Self-regulation has clearly shown its limits, but righteous political interventions even more so. Private equity investment can be a valuable addition to many portfolios, but investors need a clear understanding of the forces at work before committing to this asset class. With detailed explanations and expert insights, Private Equity 4.0 is a comprehensive guide to the industry ways and means that enables the reader to capture its richness and sustainability.
Fairness Opinions A fairness opinion, by definition, is a letter prepared by an experienced investment banker, or business appraiser, that states whether or not a transaction?from a financial point of view?is fair. The fairness opinion speaks to the ?fairness? of the financial terms of a transaction, as of a specific date, and given a set of assumptions.1 ?Fairness? in this context, parallels the notions of unbiased, impartial, and just. As denoted by the colloquial term ?fair play? or the business phrase ?an arm?s length transaction,? a fairness opinion represents whether a deal is fair to shareholders, particularly a company?s minority shareholders, all material matters and circumstances considered.
