Lower Middle Market Weekly Outlook

Private equity fees came into the crosshairs again yesterday when Gretchen Morgenson of the NYTimes published a piece outlining how some large pension funds helped pay for Carlyle’s collusion suit settlement. She writes, “Carlyle agreed to pay $115 million in the settlement. But the firm didn’t shoulder those costs. Nor did Carlyle executives or shareholders.

“Instead, investors in Carlyle Partners IV, a $7.8 billion buyout fund started in 2004, will bear the settlement costs that are not covered by insurance. Those investors include retired state and city employees in California, Illinois, Louisiana, Ohio, Texas and 10 other states. Five New York City and state pensions are among them.”

In other news, articles this week will be focused entirely on different trends and themes in the following industries: Health Care & Life Sciences, Industrials & Manufacturing, Business Services, TMT, Energy, and Consumer. Each day will focus on two of the industries.
