KKR is a private equity firm that invests in leveraged buyout and growth capital transactions. KKR provides its portfolio companies with capital, as well as strategic and operational support. KKR also makes investments in credit and real estate. KKR’s professional team is organized into three groups to invest in different sectors, regions, types of deals and investment strategies.
KKR is a private equity firm that invests in leveraged buyout and growth capital transactions.
- KKR is a private equity firm that invests in leveraged buyout and growth capital transactions.
- Leveraged Buyout (LBO) – An LBO is the purchase of a company using significant debt financing, which allows the buyer to make large cash contributions while maintaining control of the entity. For example, when Burger King acquired Tim Hortons for $11B in 2014, $3B was financed through debt and only $2B came from Burger King’s balance sheet.
- Growth Capital – Growth capital investment occurs when a company uses its own cash flow rather than external financing to fund its growth initiatives. This type of transaction typically has lower risk than an LBO because no leverage is involved; however, it also means that less capital can be invested into the business because more cash needs to be retained by management than if they had used leverage instead.
KKR provides its portfolio companies with capital, as well as strategic and operational support.
KKR is a leading global investment firm that manages a variety of private equity and credit funds. The firm has raised more than $24 billion since its founding in 1976, and it invests in many different industries. KKR provides its portfolio companies with capital, as well as strategic and operational support.
KKR also makes investments in credit and real estate.
As a private equity firm, KKR also makes investments in credit and real estate. In addition to being one of the largest private equity firms in the world with more than $75 billion under management, they have a variety of other business lines including:
- A real estate investment group that invests directly in commercial real estate projects or funds that do so.
- A credit group that provides capital to public and private companies through debt financing; it has made significant investments in mortgage-backed securities during the financial crisis.
- A distressed debt group that buys bonds at steep discounts from corporations facing bankruptcy or other financial distress; this is sometimes called vulture investing because these types of investments can be very profitable when executed correctly but have an image problem as a result. Plus, it’s not cool for any type of investor (except maybe Warren Buffet) to be known as “vultures,” so we’ll stick with distressed debt investors from now on! 🙂
- Private equity funds focused on specific industries such as technology & media or healthcare services; these typically require substantial due diligence before making an investment decision on behalf of clients who provide capital via KKR’s funds rather than directly into individual deals themselves like most PE firms do today since their focus tends toward smaller transactions where less due diligence may suffice for returns expected over time rather than immediate gains achieved through asset sales between closing dates…
