Even without an exit, an exit multiple or cap rate can still be used as a proxy for future cash flows beyond the exit horizon, thus the analysis still has some... 13 1 year 10 months

The best way to generate deal flow is form connections and relationships with bankers at firms of all sizes. Many of our deals came directly from relationships at our business... 55 3 years 3 weeks

Some companies are hesitant to hire internally as it can easily upset a lot of people depending on the environment so they are very eager to hire externally for the "shiny new toy". I've seen that happen quite a bit. 9 3 years 7 months
