TRACK RECORD REB 1
Following the very successful sale of two affiliated companies, REB 1 investors were given the opportunity to exit in September 2005 as part of an owner buyout. After all costs (management fee, carried interest, etc.) the investors who were willing to sell have achieved an above-average return (top-quartile, private equity) along with capital growth after around four years.
