SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Mission Creek Capital Partners, Inc., an independent investment advisory
firm headquartered in San Francisco, announced robust private equity
stock distribution activity and new client mandates. Mission Creek
provides comprehensive and customized private equity and venture capital
distribution management services for private equity institutional
investors, general partners, executives and entrepreneurs. Mission Creek
currently manages distribution mandates for institutional and private
clients with combined private equity commitments exceeding $4.0 billion.
Henri Moudi, Managing Director, said “resurging IPO and M&A appetite has
resulted in an attractive exit and stock distribution environment for
private equity and venture capital funds. The first half of 2014 was one
of the most active for IPOs since 2000, particularly for private
equity-backed companies with 104 initial public offerings. We anticipate
as these recent issuances come off lock-ups, the beneficial impact of
the JOBS Act on simplifying the IPO process continues to be fully felt,
and as the backlog swells of other private equity-backed companies
filing for new IPOs, stock distributions to limited partners will
continue to be active. Many private equity-backed companies that went
public in the years preceding the financial crises that saw their stock
prices fall below their IPO pricing, have now recovered and are also
adding to the overall increase in distribution activity.”
Global financial sponsor M&A exits during the first half of 2014,
according to Dealogic, was the highest on record at $196.3 billion,
surpassing the previous first half record of $185.2 billion set in 2007.
Global technology-focused M&A activity during the first half of 2014
totaled $144.9 billion, the highest first half since 2000. Given the
strong capital markets, reviving IPO environment and surging M&A
activity, private equity investors can often be overwhelmed by the
volume of distributions.
The effective and efficient management of stock distributions is a
crucial element of the private equity and venture capital life cycle
that is often overlooked. Distributions present private equity and
venture capital investors with many challenges that Mission Creek
focuses on addressing such as exiting during significantly negative
share price volatility around distribution dates. Mission Creek offers a
comprehensive and unconflicted private equity distribution management
platform that seeks to best manage, monetize and maximize the value of
securities distributed by private equity and venture funds based on its
clients’ specific risk parameters, hold guidelines and other objectives
on a separately managed account basis.
“Our team’s distribution management services and track record over the
past decade-plus have preserved and been highly additive to our clients’
overall cash-on-cash private equity returns,” stated Moudi.
