Join NACD-CT for our program, "Private Equity Company Boards and Independent Directors, Evolving Needs from Private to Public and Other Considerations." A discussion regarding the changing board needs of private equity backed company boards. What changes should be considered when a portfolio company prepares for an IPO, issues high yield debt or considers other strategic options. We will discuss the potential for conflicts and other issues that impact the board composition including situations where the sponsor invests in debt securities in the portfolio company, there are multiple equity owners or the company considers a financial restructuring. What skills are private equity firms and board consultants looking for as they consider independent directors and how do they fill these positions?
