Structuring and Implementing Executive Compensation Strategies in Private Equity Portfolio Companies: Trends, Tips and Techniques

Private equity sponsors devote tremendous time and resources to attracting and incentivizing talented management teams to create value within their portfolios. This commitment has only intensified in recent years as sponsors look to management to drive growth and generate returns in the face of historically high deal multiples. At the same time, the relationship between financial sponsors and their portfolio companies can give rise to employment-related risks unique to the private equity dynamic. Please join us for a discussion of trends, tips, and techniques in structuring and implementing compensation strategies specific to private equity portfolio companies, as well as an update on employment issues germane to those companies and their sponsors. Among other things, PwC will present findings from its 2018 Private Equity Portfolio Company Management Compensation Survey and, together with speakers from Norwest Equity Partners and Ballard Spahr, share key design insights for equity compensation plans implemented by financial sponsors.

The seminar will be followed by a reception. Hors d'oeuvres and drinks will be served.
