ABSTRACT
The article explains the role of private equity firms in profit making through shareholders. This concept was started by The Blackstone Group, when it managed its initial public offering (IPO) of 133 million U.S. dollar shares of mutual units that stand for limited partner interests, resulted to 4.133 billion U.S. dollars in revenue from public investors. The article concludes that the example shown by Blackstone proves that private equity firms can earn money in various ways including investing with their own budget and shares.
