SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 12, 2009) -

Who: Greg Shenkman, Managing Partner of Exigen Capital

What: Private Equity Podcast Report, Part 1

When: September 30, 2009


As the first guest of "The Private Equity Report" podcast series, Greg Shenkman, Managing Partner of Exigen Capital, discusses the current private equity market and new operational transformation strategies that can invigorate a disrupted sector. In this report, Shenkman highlights how the private equity market has been overly focused on deal making and needs to restructure its strategy, suggesting that private equity companies build value through operational innovation and company building.

Shenkman also discuses how the Exigen Capital approach, building joint ventures by leveraging business transformation expertise along with the vertical-specific capabilities of industry partners, validates this operationally-focused strategy.

Shenkman is the first of many industry leaders who will discuss their views in the Private Equity Report, a series of discussions about the changing world of private equity with an emphasis on value creation through enterprise transformation.
