The article reports on the findings of a survey from private equity consulting firm Gotham Consulting Partners about private equity professionals. It indicates that private equity professionals are spending some time on operational initiatives involving their existing portfolio. A stabilization in businesses is seen by Gotham founder Deepak Agrawal but notes that a number of private equity firms will be forced to scrap their plans and devise new strategies to salvage their investments. This may lead private equity firms to own companies a lot longer.
