Thread: During my interview with @linqtoinc COO, Joe Endoso, he compared #Ripple to Coinbase, before it’s IPO. Coinbase was valued at $8B before it’s phenomenal IPO, which is lower than Ripple’s last venture capital funding round (at a valuation of $10B). 1/8

#xrp #PrivateEquity
“Coinbase went from $8B to $32B & got as high as $85B, before the stock market correction. That gives you a sense of what the possibility might be for price appreciation under strong, as well as adverse market conditions, for Ripple.” 2/8
“Not only are you investing based on your belief that the fundamental value of this company is going to increase significantly in the future bc of the use case they have for XRP & the international payments processing space, but also bc it is a special situation.” 3/8

Highlighting some of the projects we facilitate.

This one comes from a searcher...👇

This one comes from a search fund...👇

"We're acquiring a commercial landscaping business in the Southeast that does about $6M in revenue. We're looking to have a valuation of hard assets performed. It's a combination of trucks/vehicles, trailers, heavy equipment and mowers.

We'd really just like to confirm the asset value is generally in line with what the seller is saying."

1/ Check out our latest @Grayscale research report: The Postmodern Portfolio Crypto Allocation Thesis. A thread on key report insights:
2/ Crypto assets are becoming a key component of The Postmodern Portfolio by offering allocators a new category that extends the risk and return spectrum beyond traditional alternatives like #realestate or #privateequity.
3/ Crypto assets blend the dynamics of investing in emerging markets, the technology sector, and venture capital to provide exposure to the next wave of the internet– Web 3.0 Cloud Economies– which enable investors and users to have direct ownership and control over the internet.

I'm sorry to hear about your raised rent. 15% is substantial.

I'm all too familiar that it costs more to be poor, and the squeeze is real, especially in housing.


Response to question 🧵
When it comes to price-fixing and collusion, we know this wreaks havoc on our economy, often to the benefit of private equity firms and the detriment of renters and first-time home buyers. This issue occurs in urban and rural America, and Western North Carolina is hit hard.

So, no. I don't think poor people should continue to be subjected to manufactured inflation of housing costs by collusion.

Reminiscence thread #1. Almost 20 years ago, I led the legal team that advised @generalatlantic on this deal – USD 100 million investment into Patni Computers.…
$100 million may not sound like much today, but it was a HUGE amount in those days. In fact, this was then the largest #PrivateEquity deal in #India, in ANY sector!
I was ALL of 26 years old when I led this deal, and justifiably, VERY EXCITED to see the deal make the front page headline story in several top business newspapers!

Private Equity compensation, a thread

1/ PE compensation is, in my opinion, one of the most misunderstood concepts in PE most especially by young investment professionals that are joining firms who provide little insights into the long-term compensation schemes, which by the way vary greatly by PE firm. Let's start
2/ with the basics and for now I am only going to focus on mid-level investment professionals.. Partner-level schemes that include other comp like mgmt. fees, etc. will not be relevant for the majority of PE folks. At a high-level, PE comp will be comprised of 3 things: cash,

"In a 2011 Times Op-Ed, Warren #Buffett decried the treatment of #carriedinterest, which allowed him to report a lower tax rate than his secretary. A minimum tax on millionaires was proposed shortly thereafter & dubbed the '#BuffettRule.'”… #PrivateEquity
1. "The #carriedinterestloophole might finally disappear. Profits earned from funds owned by real estate investors & mgrs of #privateequity & #venturecapital firms are taxed as #capitalgains at about 20%, instead of as regular income, which is taxed at more than double that rate"
2. "#Privateequity executives are also worried that the Biden administration may limit the tax deductibility of corporate interest payments, which would be another hit to their business model."

Think it’s bad that U.S. companies supply repressive regimes with physical weapons?

There’s also technology, thanks to #PrivateEquity-owned government surveillance and censorship technology firms.…
After #PirateEquity🏴‍☠️ firm Francisco Partners bought technology company Sandvine, they fired staff, replaced leadership and started dealing with surveillance states & dictatorships

Between 2018-20, Sandvine raked in $100M from countries with horrible human rights track records
Last year, Belarus used technology provided by Sandvine to shut down the news websites, block social media platforms, and ban messaging apps while torturing protestors nationwide.

Sandvine asked for the product back too late — the damage had been done.…

In the early days of the coronavirus’ arrival in the U.S., nursing homes quickly became epicenters for the pandemic. By mid-July, 51,000 residents of long-term care facilities had died, representing approx. one-quarter of the total deaths in the U.S. (1/4)…
Pre-pandemic, private equity-owned long-term care facilities were short-staffed & provided a lower quality of care. According to a Gupta study, the total nursing & staff hours fell by 1.4 & 2.4 %, mostly driven by cuts to those providing “front line” care like CNAs and LPNs (2/4)
The way #Medicare and #Medicaid pay for nursing home coverage gets exploited by bad actors, creating a game of hot potato between the nursing homes and hospitals for people that are eligible for both programs. (3/4)

1/ I've been having a few conversations with people in #VC about the denominator problem and I wanted to share this bit of math to put things in perspective:
If you run a $1B endowment, you may have a 15% #PrivateEquity target . . .
2/ So that means you're looking to have $150M in NAV of private holdings . . . and on top of that, you've got undrawn commitments of another 50 cents to $1.50 for every dollar of NAV depending on your positioning ands assumptions
3/ An old rule of thumb says that you should have $1 of undrawn for every $1 of NAV, but Dean Takahashi and Seth Alexander wrote a great paper a while back that refined that thinking, although the rule of thumb still seems to work for most people

1/ Venture capital is a very difficult strategy.

We are all mesmerized by those few who've achieved success in the area but deal outcomes usually look like this:

• 65% fail with a capital loss
• 25% barely any return
• 6% a good return
• 4% incredible return
2/ While 94% of all investments don't have any decent returns, striking a home run (4% of deals) could be extremely rewarding.

Keep in mind successful VC investors usually make their profits in one lump sum — sometimes waiting 5 to 10 years at the time without any cash flow.
3/ Additionally, remember that selling privately owned business in start-up stages is a daunting task.

Sure, in recent years VC trends have become very popular, but traditionally these strategies score very low liquidity ranking. It's not easy to exit.
