Article excerpts...

...John Caslione of GCS is quick to emphasize the importance of effective business operations.  "For our firm it includes not just making investments, but building up the [acquired] businesses themselves.  You have to look at it from business-building fundamentals, not just financial fundamentals, and be prepared to change your models without compromising your company's core business strategy."  The process of building up a firm "takes a lot more time and money than some private equity firms realize," he says.
