The article reports on the survey, conducted by accounting firm Deloitte & Touche company, which reveals that private equity firms pay high compensation for managerial talent but apply a quick hook if targets are not met. Most of the private equity firms admitted that they set aside 5%-10% of their investment as an incentive for the management team. Also, 59% pointed out that the reason for the failure to achieve the internal rate of return target was poor management performance.
