Why did KKR invest in Solar Deal?


Please comment on your view of the deal. My view was KKR was shark on the deal and acquired assets at great price.

From FT.com at: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/b8161c02-b157-11e0-9444-00144feab49a.html

Kohlberg Kravis Roberts has teamed up with German insurance company Munich Re to acquire a stake in 42 solar power plants in Spain and Italy, underlining how some of the larger private equity groups are rushing into Europe’s renewable energy sector. The US private equity group said it had sided with Munich Re to buy a 49 per cent share in southern European photovoltaic power plants owned by Grupo T-Solar, one of the world’s biggest producers of such power by installed capacity.

Is your business model in trouble?


HBR: Why is there so much interest in business model innovation right now?

McGrath: I see three main reasons. The first is the increasing speed of everything. Product life cycles and design cycles are getting shorter. When the pace of change gets faster, people realize that they need to look for the next big thing. The second issue is interindustry competition. Competition is coming from unexpected places. Who could have anticipated that the iPad’s success would put all kinds of display devices—like electronic photo frames—out of business? And the third trend is disruptions from business models that offer better customer experiences instead of simply products. Traditional toy retailers are struggling, but Build-a-Bear gets people to pay good money to provide free labor and make their product themselves. Maxine Clark, the entrepreneur who thought that up, was brilliant!

Last week, we spoke to Gary Reback, the lawyer that led the antitrust crusade against Microsoft in the late 1990s.
