"Pipes, " or Private Investments in Public Equity, are attracting tremendous interest on Wall Street. In recent years, these privatley negotiated transactions have become an attractive financing alternative for companies seeking capital and investors seeking high returns. In PIPE transactions, public companies issue stock and bonds directly (and often discreetly) to large institutional investors, rather than trying to raise capital in the stock and bond markets. PIPEs details how these deals are done, for what reasons, and with what caveats. The book describes deal structures, legal considerations, and terminology specific to investments in private placement transactions. It contains contributions by the foremost practitioners in this rapidly growing area whose participants have been closelipped, until now. PIPEs is a must-read for anyone involved with the equity markets.
