Abstract

This study analyzes the performance of private equity-backed European companies. The purpose of this research is to explore the impact of private equity investments on the variables of profitability and dimensional growth for the target companies. We prove that private equity back-companies show similar performances throughout Europe, while non-private equity companies do not. In most cases, we found similar performance in the different countries. There are homogeneous results in all countries because internationalisation has induced common practices over time.
