The article reports that increasing mergers and acquisitions in German industry by private equity has caused the German government to study regulatory issues and to plan to pass legislation regulating private equity. These laws may limit debt financing to 30 percent of current year net earnings before interest and may require guarantees that the acquired company's know-how would remain in Germany.
