I'm just beginning the recruiting process at a number of PE shops and wanted to ask if anyone is willing to share some modeling tests/case studies? I want to brush up on my skills. Happy to share what I have as well.

I'd be happy to exchange a modeling case (prompt plus excel model asnwer) with you, however I can't seem to PM you.

Get a blank sheet of excel (worth noting you might not have access to macros), pick a relatively simple (in terms of financials) public company, grab the 10-k and a research report and build an LBO from scratch. Once you can do it competently in under 90 minutes, you should be ready for the vast majority of modeling tests.

Sometimes firms will have you do a more general or qualitative analysis of a company as well. I had to do this (make a few slides of analysis and recommendation on whether to pursue). Practicing doing that with some public companies could pay off as well.

I recently completed a take home case study for an experienced pe associate spot at BX NYC. They provided me with the ticker for a publicly traded manufacturing company and asked me to build a model and write an investment memo. I built from scratch a very basic take private lbo model with a simple sensitive analysis for IRR at different share price premiums, and provided a summary of the business and my recommendation (good potential investment but wait for the stock price to drop a bit) via a 30 pg PPT deck. I was invited to the final round at their offices and had to present my 30 pg deck in front of two partners (they flipped page by page through entire deck). Ended up not getting an offer.

Except they provided financials etc for me, still have my presentation interview pending for next week!

Jul 21, 2017

Can I also be added as well? I have 2 cases I can share

Jul 21, 2017

Hi 58_Let's PM each other, I have one.

Aug 2, 2017

There is one it's just that, either the guy who created it is too busy to check his inbox, or he simply got what he needed so no point in helping others.

Aug 3, 2017

Have no modelling cases but have plenty of dated primers on many industries. willing to share primers and would also appreciate it if anyone could share any LBO/PE cases, thanks!

Aug 4, 2017

Also interested. Apart from the WSO guide, are there other places for obtaining these?

Oct 9, 2017

This has been all over WSO recently, but check out: multipleexpansion.com, good LBO guide and example Excel file.
