Welcome to our third annual survey of sponsor-backed going private transactions prepared by the Private Equity Group of Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP. We hope that you will find this information thought-provoking and useful.

We believe this survey is unique in that it analyzes and summarizes for the reader the material transaction terms of going private transactions involving a private equity sponsor in the United States, Europe and Asia-Pacific. We believe Weil Gotshal is uniquely positioned to perform this survey given our international private equity platform and network of offices throughout the United States, Europe and Asia-Pacific.
