Let’s set the scene straight. Private equity companies are better at ensuring that companies function efficiently in order to generate good returns from assets. This can come as a great advantage to PPP transactions where in most cases the government is trying to get good value for money coupled with a sustainably cheaper service provided. Therefore, private equity companies can play a role in ensuring that the service is cheaper through local content and a lean management structure. And, lastly the exit period of the private equity company can fit with the typical concession period of PPP transaction.
