Back to news articles

GCG’s August 2019 Middle Market Update provides an overview of the latest trends in the market, including recent performance of select sectors and the state of the middle-market M&A environment.

Key findings include the following:

    • Middle market private company transaction deal activity for August 2019 exhibited continued strength from first quarter lows reported earlier in the year. However, the data also shows a sharp decline over the past month in deal value and a declining deal volume, numbers which are worth watching going forward.
    • There was a significant shift in the underlying sector M&A activity from August 2018 to August 2019. Activity in the Healthcare and Financial sectors increased significantly over the period while other sectors slowed considerably.
    • GCG’s middle market public company index stock performance reflected negative performance between August 2018 and August 2019. This contrasts with the S&P 500 performance which is up 4% during the same time frame. Specific performance returns by industry are highlighted in the report.
