Sponsors and their portfolio companies need to adjust quickly to the COVID-19 outbreak. Here’s the new playbook.

SUMMARY

This report examines the impact of Covid-19 in the private equity sector and offers an outline of the emerging playbooks for private equity companies and their portfolio firms to react to this health threat.

Taking care of employees comes first, the research notes, and private equity firms need to ensure that the staff can prioritize their health following key guidelines from public-health authorities. Companies in the private equity sector have to offer appropriate training for employees to become familiar with new operating models and ensure they can do their jobs remotely.

Ensuring the continuity of key processes is also essential in the private equity sector while the coronavirus crisis lasts. Some portfolio firms in healthcare or retail are part of the front-line response or provide key products and services, the paper says. Therefore ensuring that their supply chains are running at peak performance is crucial.

Prioritizing the portfolio is also key over the Covid-19 crisis. This is the moment to review investment and portfolio actions in the context of the health crisis, the paper indicates.
