Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of Axial Radar!

Private equity investors are paid to discover value, and they’ll go wherever they need to go to find it.

Some will swim downstream to our end of the market in search of discounted multiples and growth potential.

Others will travel upstream to the public markets. Over the last 6 months, PE has invested $96B taking public companies private. This week’s featured Industry Trends article discusses the increase in public-to-private investment activity over the last 18 months. The article also reveals why public software companies in particular have garnered a disproportionate amount of attention from PE investors targeting take-private strategies. Scroll down to read more 👇.

Our featured buy-side members this week include an operator-focused investment firm, a holding company that has made more than 70 acquisitions, and a technology driven PE firm. On the sell-side we’ll introduce you to a middle market M&A advisory firm and a SF-based investment bank.
