The 2015 Annual U.S. PE Middle Market Report examines private equity investment in the U.S. middle market, delving into activity by year and quarter as well as middle-market segment. Over the past few years, PE investment in the U.S. MM has risen to unprecedented levels, attributable to a honed focus on buy-and-build strategies as well as elevated valuations, among other key factors. Going in depth on that trend, the report, sponsored by Madison Capital Funding, also analyzes trends across PE exit and fundraising activity, the better to provide a comprehensive overview of PE activity.

Report Highlights Include: 

  • Investment in the middle market by year, quarter and segment
  • Breakdowns of activity by segments of the middle market
  • A special insert on U.S. PE-backed MM company inventory
  • 4Q 2015 League Tables
