ABSTRACT
The article discusses factors to be considered by private equity investors before buying reverse leveraged buyouts. According to Jay R. Ritter, a professor at the University of Florida, these stock offerings called reverse leveraged buyouts, will make up two-fifths of the new shares coming to market in 2008. Add in venture-capital-backed firms and the share rises to three-fourths of new listings. Often, by the time of the public offering the insiders will have extracted several times their original investment in special dividends or recapitalizations.
