This is a research and inputting data project using the web and Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.
Please see the attached spreadsheet, a portion of it is completed, so you can use them as example and guidance.
When you open the spreadsheet, there should be a list of names of the private equity/investment management firms. Next to the names should be their individual websites. Please use their websites for this project. It would be much easier, faster, and better if you have access to Capital IQ, an online database containing all the interested information. But this project can be done without using Capital IQ since it is expansive.
Within the investment target columns, I want to know how much the firms can invest in equity or capital. I also want to know what they require their target company to have for revenue and EBIDTA. EBIDTA is same thing as profits or net profits for this case. Those information should be available in their websites and/or Capital IQ. Leave it blank if the information is not available.
Next, I want to know whether or not they invest in the United States or not. Then I want to know what industries they are interested to invest in for their target companies. The industries are already inputed in.
Do not add or delete the rows and columns of the spreadsheet.
When you bid, please state whether or not you have access to Capital IQ. It is ok if you do not, but it is definitely easier if you do have access.
