Private Equity Distribution Management Firm Announces Strong Distribution Activity and New Client Mandates

August 16, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Investment Weekly News -- 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.
