Investment capital (private capital) is a type of financial activity that consists in the acquisition by an organization that also specializes in investing in stable companies, in exchange for a controlling stake. Thus, the private equity capital becomes the main owner of the company, usually temporarily, since after some time the purchased shares are usually sold.

This action should not include raising new funds for the transferred company.

Private equity operations are usually targeted at mature, cash-flow-stabilized companies in which the previous owners want to sell their holdings either due to disagreements between former shareholders, or due to problems with succession of parent companies, or due to the sale of subsidiaries that do not consider strategic in industrial groups. In some cases, the transaction entails the withdrawal of the transferred company from the stock market.
Investment capital has a slightly different concept than the previous one. It is used to refer to the acquisition by an investor of risk capital of shares of current shareholders. This time, there is no capital inflow, but the venture capital becomes the majority owner, the most common cases being succession problems in parent companies or selling divisions, which are no longer a priority for large companies. In addition, this group includes operations known as management acquisitions (MBOs), in which managers use venture capital to buy a company from its current owners, taking the risk of a capital fund into new owners.
