In this paper, we address the attractiveness and the economic impact of the private equity industry in Romania, since this industry is considered to be an alternative source of financing for companies covered by investment funds. Using data from two sources, we have been analyzed both economic and social impact of the private equity involvement beginning with the entrance of the fund, the investment period and after the funds divestment. This analysis has shown that private equity funds involvement in the case of Sicomed – Zentiva is a particular case that combates the global consideration on the social impact in the economy. However, the findings and the results of this research cannot be generalized to the entire economy. On the other hand, this study presents the notable aspects that have to be considered when the companies are willing to be restructurated through the involvement of a private equity fund.
