✏Entrepreneur s choice between Venture Capitalist and Business Angel for Start Up Financing Book Summary : The study extends the literature on venture capital by examining whether entrepreneur’s choice for an external investor and certain firm characteristics have an impact on venture success or not. The focus is set on the differences in value creation by venture capitalists and business angels for ventures of the high- and low-technology sector. The assessment of a data set including 252 Series A financing rounds by venture capitalist firms, business angels and collaborative investments of both investors conducted between 2005 and 2012 unveils value enhancing aspects for all three financing solutions. Overall, start-ups initially financed by venture capitalist firms perform best with regard to general venture success, whereas start-ups collaboratively supported by venture capitalists and business angels have the highest chances to exit successfully through a trade sale. It becomes further apparent that ventures located in one of the high-technology industries ‘internet’, ‘pharmaceuticals’ and ‘high-tech’, ventures that are longer established in the market and ventures whose Series A financing round was executed more recently indicate an enhanced likelihood of success.

✏Private Equity as an Asset Class Book Summary : Unfairly reviled, and much misunderstood, private equity differs from all other asset classes in various important respects, not least the way in which its fund mechanisms operate, and the way in which its returns are recorded and analysed. Sadly, high level asset allocation decisions are frequently made on the basis of prejudice and misinformation, rather than a proper appreciation of the facts. Guy Fraser-Sampson draws upon more than twenty years of experience of the private equity industry to provide a practical guide to mastering the intricacies of this highly specialist asset class. Aimed equally at investors, professionals and business school students, it starts with such fundamental questions as ’what is private equity?’ and progresses to detailed consideration of different types of private equity activity such as venture capital and buyout. Rapid and significant changes in the environment during the recent financial crisis have prompted the need for a new edition. Separate chapters have been added on growth and development capital, as well as secondary investing. Newly emergent issues are considered, such as lengthening holding periods and the possible threat of declining returns. Particular problems, such as the need to distinguish between private equity and hedge funds, are addressed. The glossary has also been expanded. In short, readers will find that this new edition takes their understanding of the asset class to new heights. Key points include: A glossary of private equity terms Venture capital Buyout Growth capital Development capital Secondary investing Understanding private equity returns Analysing funds and returns How to plan a fund investment programme Detailed discussion of industry performance figures

As Landstršm and Mason point out, the nature of venture capital has changed dramatically over the last ten years. The asset class as a whole has failed to return principal and the old model is under tremendous strain. The contributors nicely highlight many of these changes, especially how venture capital has scaled beyond the US. For those of us active in venture capital research, the chapters raise many interesting research questions that deserve further attention.Õ Ð Andrew Zacharakis, Babson College, US This Handbook charts the development of venture capital research in light of the global financial crisis, starting with an analysis of the current venture capital market and the changing nature of the business angel market. Looking at governance structures, the performance of venture capitalists in terms of investments, economic impact and human capital, and the geographical organization of business angels and venture capital global ÔhotspotsÕ, this book also analyses the current state of venture capital research and offers a roadmap for the future.

✏Value Creation in Leveraged Buyouts Book Summary : Based on a dataset of over 3,000 leveraged buyout transactions, including performance data, Nicolaus Loos analyses how financial investors create economic value through their investments. He shows that various exogenous factors with respect to timing, industry, public market as well as deal specific factors can statistically be related to a buyout deal's performance. He also provides evidence of a "GP effect" in leveraged buyouts, i.e. that certain characteristics of a Private Equity firm and its investment professionals as well as a firm's buyout strategy approach and certain buyout target characteristics are important success factors.

✏Power Tools for Negotiating International Business Deals Book Summary : Doing International Business? Here are the Tools! Power Tools for Negotiating International Deals is a nuts and bolts guide. This book is the handbook read before the negotiation. It is also to be used during the negotiation when a decision to stand firm or compromise must be made. Power Tools for Negotiating International Deals shows how international business works, where to stake high ground, what concessions to make, and what mistakes to avoid. Filled with checklists and case examples, these are the power tools needed for negotiating business deals in the global marketplace. When negotiating an international deal, there is often only one good opportunity to strike the bargain and make the deal. To do so, a businessperson needs tools to know what to ask for, what to counter with, and what to offer up as a reasonable compromise. That is how deals get done. Without knowing the terms that would make the best international deal, the deal may still get done and– it just will not be the best that could have been negotiated. Power Tools for Negotiating International Deals explains the key issues that need to be negotiated in an international business deal, be it a product sale, agency/brokerage, consulting agreement, distributorship, license, joint venture or consortium. Some of the topics covered in this book: the basics of international business deals negotiating international sales of goods and services negotiating international agency and consulting deals negotiating international distribution deals negotiating international license deals negotiating international joint venture and consortium deals James M.

✏Venture Capital Deal Terms Book Summary : This new book of investor Harm de Vries and VC lawyers Menno van Loon and Sjoerd Mol, who together have been involved in hundreds of venture capital transactions, explains all of the most common clauses used in VC deals. The book provides an in-depth look on how venture capital deals are constructed and how deal terms work out in practice. It includes many examples, as well as negotiation tips for both entrepreneurs and investors and a full term sheet template as annex. Furthermore, the book explains the economics behind the deal terms, which makes them easier to understand. The result is a practical guide to venture capital deals.All venture capital transactions start out with the execution of a term sheet, a document summarizing the basic terms and conditions under which a potential investment will be made. A well-drafted term sheet serves as a tool to focus attention of the parties on the essential deal terms, and serves as an instrument to investigate whether there is common ground between them with respect to the most important investment conditions before they spend further time, energy and money on negotiating a deal. Effective participation in the negotiations of a venture capital transaction is possible only once each party involved fully understands the scope and consequences of all the deal terms included in the term sheet.The book provides a clear understanding of the most frequently used practices, terms and conditions and will benefit anyone involved in venture capital transactions - investor, entrepreneur or advisor.Contents of the book:About the authorsPreface1.
