Private Equity Firms invest in companies in order to expand their portfolio and generate cash from the return on your company. They are usually involved as pure financial investors, less frequently as strategic investors. You cannot expect every private equity company to provide operational support for your business. Often they lack the technical and industry know-how. However, you will have to expect reporting requirements and regular business reviews with representatives of the private equity company. As a rule, you will be given profitability and liquidity targets that you must meet with your organization.
In addition to a purely financial investment, there is also the option of a strategic investment.
