Some buyout firms are having a difficult time selling businesses as buyers are waiting for prices to fall, according to an article by Reuters. The article "DealTalk - Buyers' stand-off threatens to choke private equity" indicates that part of the problem is that buyout firms are unwilling to sell companies at current prices as it could mean they could miss out on the carried interest (profit share) for the fund. Moreover, the article suggests that some buyout funds may disappear as a result of poor performance. It's an interesting article.
