The 2Q 2017 US PE Middle Market Report examines private equity investment in the US middle market as it proceeds through the middle of the year. Ongoing pricing pressures from substantial sums of dry powder on top of competition continue to push deals into the core and upper middle markets, while PE sponsors are on pace to debut more companies in public markets than in quite some time. Sponsored by Madison Capital Funding and developed in partnership with ACG, 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: 

  • Analysis of varying shifts in investment across the US middle market by year, quarter and segment
  • An examination of how middle-market investment, like general PE strategies, are favoring IT
  • Datasets on middle-market fundraising and exits
Note: The report was updated on August 7, 2017, as there was an inaccurately formatted chart.
