Differentiating Bids in the Era of Abundant Capital | 2pm

Cash on corporate balance sheets globally is at an all-time high, north of $6.8tn. Private equity is coming off the biggest year since records began in 1980, putting nearly $1tn to work, more than double the prior year. Is it possible to win a deal without being the highest bidder? Is the lighter regulatory burden helping PE firms? What deal terms are materially different? Is private equity driving more corporate risk taking?
