The 3Q 2017 US PE Middle Market Report examines private equity investment in the US middle market as the year comes to a close. Ongoing pricing pressures from substantial sums of dry powder on top of competition continue to push deals into the upper middle market, while median M&A multiples for the middle market have risen to their highest level on record. 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
  • Spotlight: US PE investment in middle-market restaurants & bars
  • Datasets on middle-market fundraising and exits
