2016 Middle Market Outlook
November 17, 2015 - 1:00 PM ET

DESCRIPTION: This year through early June, private equity loan volume was $81.2 billion, of which M&A activity accounted for $47.8 billion. In the same period last year, PE loan volume was $158.4 billion, with M&A accounting for $75.5 billion. What should we expect to see in the latter half of 2015?

Join us as we discuss the trends in the large cap, middle market and lower middle market realms, including pricing and loan structures. We'll also discuss which sectors are seeing the most activity and how advisors can help source new deals and bring them to the finish line. In addition, how are PE firms doing deals after regulators last fall issued more clarity on the leveraged lending guidance and how is deal activity shaping up for the second half of the year? Also, how will the sale of General Electric's sponsor finance unit to Canada Pension Plan Investment Board impact the middle market lending landscape?

Join The Deal on July 21st as we'll answer these questions and many more. After just 60 minutes, you'll leave with a refreshed perspective on the key factors that will make a difference in your firm's success for 2015.
