Private Equity at it Again

CDW agreed to be bought out by Madison Dearborn Partner for $7.3 billion. This is a 16% premium per share price over the current share price. This is probably going to be the kick off of another week of PE purchasing. Of course CEO John Edwardson describes this as a new chapter in the CDW's history. In this new chapter I'm sure we should expect to see Private Equity's favorite subject: hyper value creation. Is this going to come with higher volume or prices, or less employees? Let's wait and see.
