CVC Capital Partners case study - Investment team

Hi all, 

 

I have a second round interview with CVC Capital Partners and this is when they give a modelling test and case study. I haven't received much instruction on what it is going to be like so would greatly appreciate advice from anyone who has had experience with this stage of the CVC process.

I am wondering if it will be a data dump and 2-3h integrated modelling test and case study (i.e. build an LBO to buy the asset in the case study and then present the LBO results as well as the assessment of the case study as if you were doing it to a mock IC), or building a 3-statement model for 1h and then doing a completely separate consulting-style case study for another 1h (i.e. test basic financial/modelling skills and commercial skills separately), or perhaps a DCF of sorts, etc.?

They have a mix of consultants and bankers in the fund, so they might also provide different modelling tests/case studies for consultant vs. banker candidates.

Any steer from fellow monkeys would be great. 

Thanks!
