Means of payment in takeovers : results for the U.K. and U.S. by Robert S Harris( )

10 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2,500 acquisitions in the United Kingdom and United States are used to examine means of payment in acquisitions. There has been a substantial increase in the proportion of acquisitions financed with cash in the United States over the period of the study from 1955 to 1985. Mixed bids are more common in the UK. Bid premia are significantly larger in cash than equity acquisitions and the differences cannot be wholly attributed to the nature of the bid. Cash acquisitions display a better post acquisition performance than equity. These results bear directly on theories of acquisition finance and cast serious doubt on several commonly cited factors
Financial intermediation in private equity : how well do funds of funds perform? by Robert S Harris( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper focuses on funds of funds (FOFs) as a form of financial intermediation in private equity (both buyout and venture capital). After accounting for fees, FOFs provide returns equal to or above public market indices for both buyout and venture capital. While FOFs focusing on buyouts outperform public markets, they underperform direct fund investment strategies in buyout. In contrast, the average performance of FOFs in venture capital is on a par with results from direct venture fund investing. This suggests that FOFs in venture capital (but not in buyouts) are able to identify and access superior performing funds
Private equity performance : what do we know? by Robert S Harris( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: We present evidence on the performance of nearly 1400 U.S. private equity (buyout and venture capital) funds using a new research-quality dataset from Burgiss, sourced from over 200 institutional investors. Using detailed cash-flow data, we compare buyout and venture capital returns to the returns produced by public markets. We also compare the evidence from Burgiss to that derived from other commercial datasets - Venture Economics, Preqin and Cambridge Associates - as well as recent research. We find better buyout fund performance than has previously been documented. This in part reflects recently discovered problems with data provided by Venture Economics, upon which several previous studies had relied. Average U.S. buyout fund performance has exceeded that of public markets for most vintages for a long period of time. The outperformance versus the S & P 500 averages 20% to 27% over the life of the fund and more than 3% per year. Average U.S. venture capital funds, on the other hand, outperformed public equities in the 1990s, but have underperformed public equities in the 2000s. Using individual fund data, we explore the relationship between absolute measures of performance - internal rates of return (IRRs) and multiples of invested capital - and performance relative to public markets. Within a given vintage year, performance relative to public markets can be predicted well by a fund's multiple of invested capital and IRR, so we are able to estimate the performance relative to public markets that would have been derived from the other commercial datasets, had the required cash-flow data been available. Private equity performance in the other commercial sources - other than Venture Economics - is qualitatively similar to that we find using the Burgiss data
