Session

TRACK A

9:00am - 9:45am HYBRID & CO-INDEPENDENT SPONSORS

  • How can independent sponsors work together as co-sponsors to maximize the likelihood of success and create value
  • Control – just because a capital provider wants control, does that mean there is not room in the deal for the Independent Sponsor?
  • Hybrid independent sponsor models (IS who have a strong family/personal balance sheet or small fund, but also need to raise promoted co-investment to close deals)
