Since the beginning of 2008, PE investors have invested in 111 U.S. companies primarily involved in the Environmental Services industry, according to the PitchBook Platform. Over a third of the Environmental Services investments during that almost five-year period took place in the South, making it the most active U.S. region for the industry. However, activity in the Midwest has been gaining momentum since 2009, when it accounted for only 5% of the year's Environmental Services activity, with year-over-year increases in its yearly share of deal flow. This year, the region leads the industry's activity, responsible for 29% of the deals in 2012 to date.
