Managing private equity portfolios in the downturn

I am posting notes taken by Shailen Chande at the last CVCA conference. This is the up date on managing private equity portfolios.

Portfolio company management:
- Critical to proactively manage portfolio company performance through a downturn - increased focus on dashboard reporting and managing expectations
- Cash flow "Quick Hits": Dial back growth; Focus on streamlining direct costs as opposed to SG&A; Aggressively manage working capital
- Very rarely are cuts too deep - need to react to current environment quickly and prepare for the worst - revisit downside case
