Excerpt:

Will CFOs and their executive management teams forge sensible deals if buyout firms begin to swamp them with offers?

An outbreak of heated bidding isn't far-fetched. It's been well documented that private-equity firms hold heaps of capital ("dry powder") to invest — more than $500 billion in March, according to London-based research firm Preqin.
