Apax Partners issues 2008 Annual Report
26 June 2009
Apax Partners today issued its second annual report, in
accordance with the reporting guidelines detailed by Sir David
The aim of our Report is to provide greater transparency on Apax
Partners and the portfolio companies in which its funds
invest. This Annual Report also provides us with a platform
to communicate our belief that the private equity model is robust
and relevant in these turbulent times.
In our view, the private equity model is well suited to help
companies through this difficult period. The ability to act
quickly and decisively with an eye to the long-term health of
company fundamentals, rather than short-term concerns about share
price, is critical.
The number one priority for Apax Partners at the moment is ensuring
that our funds' existing portfolio companies are in a strong
position to weather the increasingly stormy economic climate and we
are allocating resources accordingly.
We believe that our team strength and our strategy will help our
portfolio, as well as Apax Partners, emerge out of the current
difficulties in a robust position.
