This document provides a brief evaluation of the worldwide private equity investor database. Our team utilized a keyword tracking tool to identify investors who used spin-off-related terminology on their websites. As a result, we have produced a comprehensive Excel spreadsheet that can precisely identify relevant investors in the spin-off sector.
Spin-off transactions in private equity usually involve a parent company divesting a business unit or subsidiary, which then becomes an independent company. This process frequently occurs when the parent company determines that the spin-off business is outside its core operations or strategic focus. In this article, we are introducing two interesting spin-off-focused private equity funds from our keyword crawler-based spin-off-private equity investors list.
