About Pepperdine Private Capital Markets Project
The Pepperdine Private Capital Markets Project is directed by Dr. Craig E. Everett, PhD, Assistant Professor of Finance at the Graziadio School of Business and Management, Pepperdine University. The primary research funding for the 2016 Private Capital Markets Report was made possible through a generous gift form Ed and Jean Wedbush. Dun & Bradstreet was an additional financial sponsor of the 2016 Report. Research Partners included the International Business Brokers Association and M&A Source.
The Pepperdine Private Cost of Capital Survey was originally launched in 2007 and was the first comprehensive and simultaneous investigation of the major private capital market segments. The 2016 specifically examined the behavior of Senior Lenders, Asset based lenders, Mezzanine Funds, Private Equity groups, Venture Capital groups, Angel Investors, Factors, privately held businesses, investment bankers, business brokers, limited partners and business appraisers. The Survey investigates for each Private Capital Market segment the important benchmarks that must be met in order to qualify for capital, how much capital is typically accessible, what the required returns are for extending capital in today’s economic environment and outlooks for demand for various capital types, interest rates and the economy in general.
The Survey results indicate that the cost of capital for privately held businesses varies significantly by capital type, size and risk assumed.
