This article considers industry concentration, syndication networks, and competition in the U.K. private equity market for management buyouts. It provides empirical evidence of the effect of industry market structures on syndicate relationships. This article also studies interfirm cooperation through syndication in the private equity market and determines if this decreases the extent of competition and subsequently affects the prices private equity firms are willing to pay to get buyout targets.
