In the sample used, there is no difference in long-run stock performance between PE and non-PE backed firms. However, different variables explain the long-run stock performance depending on the firm being PE and non-PE backed. Operating margin affects the long-run stock performance for PE backed IPOs, while company size explains the long-run... (More)
