Private Equity LP Interests

Equity investment in a fund (typically limited partnership interests) whose purpose is to invest in, and acquire a portfolio of, private operating companies. Private Equity is a relatively broad asset class that defines Private Equity funds which invest in the equity and debt securities of private operating companies and is most commonly associated with a fund, including multiple investments in leveraged buyouts. A typical Private Equity firm acquires majority control in a private company or through private placements in a public company with a focus on generating returns through the application of leverage, and from the addition of an experienced leadership team to drive operational improvements and revenue growth. The funds typically offer dividends and ultimately return capital to shareholders via portfolio company exits.

Venture Capital LP Interests

Equity investment in a fund (typically limited partnership interests) whose purpose is to invest in early-stage, high-risk start-up companies. The VC fund creates investment value primarily through equity ownership in selected companies which often have a novel business idea, or new technology that can be applied to large addressable markets, and ultimately scale into mature businesses. The typical venture capital investment occurs after the seed funding round as a growth funding round for a minority ownership stake with the goal of generating a return through an eventual company sale, IPO exit, or other secondary share sale. Venture capital is a subset of private equity.

Private Investment in Public Entity (PIPE)

A Private Investment in Public Equity, or “PIPE”, is a transaction in which investors purchase securities directly from a publicly traded company in a private placement, often at a discount to current market value. The sale of the securities is typically not pre-registered with the SEC, and therefore the securities are “restricted” and may not be immediately resold by the investors into the public markets. Investors will usually require that the issuer register the restricted securities with the SEC as part of the PIPE transaction within a fixed period of time. As a result, a PIPE transaction can offer the issuer the speed and predictability of a private placement, while providing investors with a more liquid security. Most PIPEs involve the issuance by the company of common stock, convertible preferred stock or convertible debt.
