Putting Middle Market M&A on Top: Past, Present & Future Who: James Gelfer, Senior Analyst, and Dylan Cox, Analyst II, PitchBook When: Wednesday, December 6th at 10:00AM PST Link to Register: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/1943150793854600194 Additional Details: Middle-market M&A dealmakers are facing as competitive a landscape as any time in the last decade. Dry powder in private equity vehicles has reached all-time highs, while public equity valuations and cash on corporate balance sheets continue to climb. At the same time, the M&A boom of the last few years has left fewer viable targets in the market, wrenching up the pressure on diligence and deal sourcing. Private valuations have soared along with their public counterparts, but opportunities remain in select sectors and segments of the market. In this presentation, PitchBook analysts will discuss these themes, as well as other key trends affecting the US middle market. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions in advance of and during the webinar.
