Q3 2022 Middle Market Private Equity Update

Back to news articles

GCG’s Q3 2022 Middle Market Private Equity Update provides an overview of the latest trends in the private equity market.

Key findings include the following:

    • Private equity-based deal value and deal volume in the middle-market continue to be robust. Through 3 quarters of 2022, the deal volume is on pace to barely eclipse the 2021 record year. Middle-market PE Deal values for 2022 are on pace to drop 14 percent from 2021.
    • The lower end of the deal market has not been impacted as much as the upper end of the deal market and large-cap deals. Deal volume remaining robust while the overall value of the deals is down highlights the trend towards the lower end of the middle-market.
    • Private equity fundraising in 2022 is set to break prior fund-raising records and be approximately 10 percent higher than last year. Unlike the deal market, the fundraising market is being led by the larger funds ($250 million and up).
    • Private equity deal volume has remained consistent throughout the year and has not shown significant signs of slowing down as a result of increasing rates and economic uncertainty.
