The Private Equity Era
Posted by Gordon Smith

Today was filled with preparations for Christmas, so I am a bit late to blogging. In looking at the current headlines in the W$J, I am struck by the number of private equity deals in the works. Albertson's, a piece of Texas Instruments, and Tommy Hilfiger all appear above the fold, so to speak. The most recent issue of BusinessWeek noted:

Nine of the top 10 biggest-ever private equity deals were announced in 2005, according to deal tracker Dealogic. (The largest is still the $25 billion buyout of RJR Nabisco in 1988.)

It looks like 2006 is shaping up to be the year of private equity.
