Private Equity Investing in For-Profit Education Companies
Total private equity transaction in the for-profit education sector volume increased in 2011 over the previous year. Investors are still finding opportunities in the post-secondary arena, and putting other high-growth education segments on their radars including education technology, online and corporate training, and outsourced education services.
Many middle-market businesses are trading at significant multiples. And lenders are aggressively financing transactions apart from the post-secondary market.
Join us on Thursday, July 26 for our conference -- “Private Equity Investing in For-Profit Education Companies.”
• Dow Lohnes
• The Parthenon Group
• Grant Thornton
The good news is that budgets are slowly coming back as the economy continues to improve. And the federal “Race To The Top” initiative has enabled a growing level of privatization in the K-12 segment, rewarding school districts for embracing alternative models, technological advances, and other programs offered by for-profit businesses.
You’ll hear what investors are viewing in both K-12 and post-secondary education, plus the most interesting areas attracting close attention, such as online learning, education technology and assessment tools.
Larry Shagrin, Partner at Brockway Moran & Partners in Boca Raton will chair this popular event.
Larry has over 17 years of private equity experience, including the sourcing, execution, and monitoring of growth-oriented buyouts in diverse industries. His recent education investments include Turning Technologies and Crisis Prevention Institute. Prior to Brockway Moran, Larry was involved with education related PE investments as a Managing Director with William Blair Capital Partners and The Palmer Group.
As at past conferences, you’ll hear from 20 top senior investors and other industry experts who will share what they’re doing and seeing and hearing. All in one compact high-energy day.
Please be sure to mark your calendar today for Thursday, July 26, and make plans to join us for this day-long event in New York City.
