Eligibility Requirements for PE firms registering for DealSource

All Private Equity firms must commit to staffing their table on Tuesday, October 22 between 5:30 - 7:30 pm (during the Cocktail Reception) to be eligible for DealSource. 

Because there are a limited number of DealSource slots, ACG Philadelphia strives to ensure that meetings between PE firms and Investment Banks are relevant and valued. 

  • Eligible for DealSource:  Firms must be equity investors who can demonstrate a history of leading change of control transactions.
  • Not eligible for DealSource: Firms who provide primarily credit or debt, or do not invest equity in a transaction. These firms can register for the PE Marketplace only.  Firms who do not meet the above requirements will be refunded their registration fee.

If you are unsure if your firm qualifies, please email (Stephanie McAlaine: 610.971.4806) or (Jen Simons: 610.664.3028)
