M&A Deal Activity DOWN Dramatically Thru 1st Half 2013

17-Jul-2013

This Report just released by PitchBook on Middle Market M&A activity by Private Equity for the First Half of 2013 was a BIG surprise to many.  Most market watchers were expecting a pick up in deal activity in Q2 after a drop off in Q1 from the spike in tax motivated transactions in Q4 of 2012. Investors were sitting on unprecedented amounts of dry powder that started expiring in 2013, large numbers of portfolio companies were still held after five+ years, easy access to debt at very low rates was available, all pointed to a pick up in deal activity.   This did NOT happen - Q2 was the slowest since Q2 2009!

See Huxley Nixon's Blog for some reasons this unexpected downturn occurred.
