Blue Point Capital’s John LeMay Talks about Private Equity Investing and its Future
Friday, September 21
Cleveland Racquet Club
Pepper Pike OH
As we know, the Private Equity Industry ended 2017 with close to $556 billion in “dry powder” available for investment in privately held companies. Business valuations have increased to reflect increasing demand for private deals. Established PE firms have been busy converting their investments to cash and searching (with difficulty) for new desirable investments.
Blue Point Capital Partners does this work well. The firm manages over $1.5 billion in committed capital across its second, third and fourth institutional funds and currently owns 12 companies in its portfolio.
A twenty-year veteran of Blue Point, John LeMay will talk about Blue Point’s investment approach, recent transactions, their view of the next few years for PE investors and his activities with Breakthrough Schools.
Join John and an engaged audience and get insights to these topics and more along with Q & A at the Cleveland Racquet Club. Check in and complimentary breakfast starts at 730a, Panel starts at 750a. This event is complementary and by invitation only.
Moderator: David Brown, co-Founder of the Center, provides advice on the acquisition, sale or restructuring of family or founder-owned middle market businesses.
Program Host: Ben Calkins leads The Calkins Law Firm. He is co-founder of the Center.

CFE Sponsorship Opportunity
The Center for Free Enterprise is offering the opportunity for a new sponsor. This is the first offer of new sponsorship since it’s launch in 2015 and is first come, first served. CFE has hosted 17 consecutive sold out programs since its launch.
This new Marketing Sponsor will join Program Sponsor JP Morgan, and Founding Sponsors Red Hawk Associates and Calkins Law Firm. It will be consulted for future CFE programming and will benefit from considerable CFE-related exposure including at programs, on the new website, in various media outlets, and in the thousands of CFE newsletters that are emailed each month to members of the business community in Northeast Ohio. As CFE’s sponsorships are all industry exclusive, the fourth sponsor should not be a bank, asset/wealth manager, business intermediary or law firm.
Contact Ben Calkins (440) 796 – 4592 or David Brown (216) 374 – 8714 for additional details.
