“It’s no secret there are more buyers than sellers in today’s merger and acquisition market, so finding the right company at a fair price can be challenging,” said John Bisack, Co-Founder, President and Managing Director of Performance Improvement Partners, known in the PE industry more simply as PIP. “The use of technology to enhance portfolio company EBITDA is now a key strategic initiative.”
According to Bisack, there is a major trend at work in the area of technology solutions. PE investors have a growing interest in identifying new ways to enhance and improve the use of current technology systems when appropriate. Whether finding pragmatic improvements for existing technology or implementing new technology, a cost effective, value-based solution is the key to growing a business.
