At the request of Patrick and a few users, I have agreed to start an "Ask CompBanker" thread. The purpose is to share responses to my historical and future PMs with the community while keeping the question asker anonymous. Anyone is welcome to send me a PM or post below with a question and I'll respond in this thread.
For those who are new, below are some of my other explaining my background. I'll do my best to answer any question posed, but my background is in the middle market and I've worked exclusively on M&A and Leveraged Buyouts my whole career. I've also taken the GMAT and applied to b-school, though I didn't matriculate.
Note: Comments in this thread will be deleted after I've responded. I will attempt to answer follow-up questions by editing my original response. Please look back at the original response if you find your follow-up question deleted.
