Hey guys, I'm currently an analyst at a BB investment bank looking to group share modeling exams and case studies (a mix from the megafunds and middle-market funds) for private equity recruiting. I have a handful I'm happy to share that were passed down to me from previously successful analysts. If it makes sense I'll create a dropbox or something and invite anyone who'd like to work together.

After reading all the comments below, this must be the most "interesting" post in the history of WSO!

Sounds great, have some I'd be happy to share as well .. goos initiative @MonkeyShenanigans

12/21/16

This sounds great, I'm very interested!

12/21/16

Absolutely. I'm very interested, too!

Don't have anything to share, but FWIW when I interviewed at KKR a couple years ago they just handed me a 10-k and IR presentation and told me I had 3 hours to build an lbo model and throw a coupler slides together about whether or not it would be a good investment.

Most firms will probably have some more direction than that, but doing the above is a very good way to practice.

that sounds savage as fuck but that's how they roll in the NBA ... hat's off to you for nailing that. in those cases it's all about the assumptions in your forecast (assuming you can already build a mean 3 statement model) and that means you need to practice a lot of those cases to make sure your assumptions would be reasonable and defensible to the interviewers. lbo is mich more than 3 statements though as a lot of important assumptions are also made in the debt schedules, PP&E & depreciation schedule etc. it's been a very long time since I built an LBO from scratch and by god I probably couldn't do it anymore. I better pull out (giggity) the old books/guides.

I set up a Google Drive account so that we can share the case studies with each other!

If you send me your email address, then I will give you access to the folder and you can upload your case studies as well as download the case studies from others!

It would be great if you could also throw SB my way so that others can find this post quickly/easily.

1/13/17

Hi @Kinghongkong, would love to get involved here and have case studies to upload. Great if you'd add me to the folder.
