Roundtable: Private Equity—Incubating New Plays
As public companies have shifted away from acquisitions to appease shareholders, private equity has stepped in to fill the void. But now we’re seeing private capital move out of high-dollar plays, such as the Permian and Scoop/Stack, and planting flags in less obvious locales. How is private equity adapting to the current environment, and where is it finding new sweet spots?

Spotlight: Private Credit Funds

Roundtable: The Push & Pull Of Public Markets
Wall Street pulled the plug on public oil and gas equities last year, and the sector is still demanding proof of cash flow before investing. High-yield investors seemed eager to fill the gap, but debt comes with a price. How will the public markets affect access to capital this year, and can an IPO get any traction?
