GTCR

Participants will act as associates in a private equity fund seeking to perform a heavily debt-financed leverage buyout of a public company. Teams will first examine companies, trends, and characteristics of the industry before the target buyout company is chosen. The target company will be valued using discounted cash flow modeling, precedent transactions, and comparable company trading multiples. The final step of the project will be creating a leverage buyout model and an investment recommendation for GTCR.
