July 20-22, 2010 - Thomas W. Janes Speaks at the Tenth Annual Private Equity Conference (Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago

The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago hosted its Tenth Annual Private Equity Conference. The theme of this year's conference was The New World Order of Private Equity.

Global private equity (PE) assets under management now stand at over $2 trillion, with committed but undeployed capital exceeding $1 trillion. However, standard industry activity indicators, such as fundraising, deal flow and liquidity events through public markets or merger and acquisition (M&A) activity, have remained restrained. The economic downturn has impaired the availability of credit and the financial condition of industry participants. Reduced limited-partner investment capacity, diminished prospects at portfolio companies and fewer potential lenders have inhibited general partners. Secondary market funds were the only subsector that prospered in 2009, with record capital committed.

April 12,2010 - Boston Buyout Dealmaker Spins Out of Lincolnshire

Thomas W. Janes, a longtime banker and buyout investor, is looking to stretch his wings by running his own buyout shop with backing from his old firm.

Janes, for the last seven years a managing director at New York-based buyout shop Lincolnshire Management Inc. and the head of Lincolnshire's Boston office, said he plans to use his new venture, Kerry Capital Advisors Inc., to invest in deals both larger and smaller than Lincolnshire would consider. “I’ve been in the business a long time. I’ve got a lot of relationships,” Janes said in an interview.

With credit markets appearing to be thawing from their two-year freeze, the time is right to launch the new firm, he said. “In the context of the deal world in which I operate it is now a much more friendly environment for pursuing transactions than a year ago," Janes said. “Three years ago would have been a terrible time. Three years from now would be too late.”
