Annual US PE Middle Market Report


Annual US PE Middle Market Report

February 1, 2017

The 2016 Annual US PE Middle Market Report examines private equity investment in the US middle market as it progressed throughout last year. Competition from strategic acquirers forced PE firms to look for value in smaller portfolio compnies, which in turn has prompted an increase in lower-middle-market deal value. Sponsored by Madison Capital Funding and developed in partnership with ACG and Deloitte, the report also covers PE exit and fundraising activity to provide a comprehensive overview of PE activity in all segments of the middle market.

Report Highlights Include: 

  • Investment in the middle market by year, quarter and segment
  • An update on legislative issues affecting middle-market businesses & investors by ACG Global
  • Q&A with Deloitte's Tim Mundy, national managing partner and PE Program and West Coast Asset Management leader, plus Frank Fumai, Audit Partner
  • 4Q 2016 middle-market league tables*
*These league tables were updated as of 3/2/2017 in order to clarify some deal attribution.
