EY and SAVCA presents the second in the six-part “Excellence in Exits” video series dedicated to the exits experiences of Southern African private equity fund managers.

Professional services firm second in a six-part video series dedicated to the exits experiences of Southern African private equity fund managers. The videos come at a time when many funds in the region are at a mature stage and are preparing portfolio companies for exits.

This second video provides an in-depth look at the exits experiences and approach followed at Nedbank Capital Private Equity, and features a conversation with Clive Howell. The first in the "Excellence in Exits" video series featured
a collage of conversations with SAVCA members on exits, including
private equity fund managers from several institutions such as The Abraaj Group, Ethos Private Equity, Horizon Equity Partners and Metier.

Clive Howell, Head of Nedbank Capital Private Equity, states that his group places an emphasis on preparation: "We like to target buyers that are going to place value on the business. We've seen that with people that have a compelling reason or rational, you get a much better price".

Four other videos will be unveiled in the coming months, with each featuring an in-depth discussion with a private equity practitioner.
