Supplementary notes

Private equity investors realize the return on investments through exit strategies. Several methods are available for investors to exit their private equity investments: Initial public offering (IPO) of the company on the stock exchange and subsequently selling the shares of the company to the public is one of them. Other ones include for example a trade sale or a secondary buyout.
