Foreword The empirical research contained in this book is unique. Daniel Pindur has put together a database of successful LBO transactions in the European market from 1993 to 2004. Next to insightful descriptive statistics of the representative sample, this database comprises purchase and disposal prices, interim cash flows and capital structure information. The novelty and granularity of this information enables the profound and first-time analysis of realized rates of returns on individual transaction level, and, even more important, the analysis of the various components and sources of such returns. The covered successful LBO transactions generated significant returns to the buy-out firms.
