The Shareholder vs. the Shareholders
Not having the ongoing management of the shareholders is a plus for the private equity CEO. No public earnings releases, analyst conference calls, important shareholder phone calls, preparation of fancy annual reports and the like.

I will disagree with every article written that says private equity companies are not under quarterly earning pressures. In many cases, it’s substituted with monthly EBITDA pressures and loan covenants that require NASCAR skills to stay off the guardrails.
