Middle Market Overview

Although the economy and capital markets were in turmoil in the last half of 2009 , there is still a strong demand from investors for good middle market companies. This demand is driven largely by (a) private equity groups who have accumulated significant amounts of capital and are finding pressure to consummate transactions, and (b) corporate investors who are looking to supplement their slowing organic growth with strategic acquisitions.

Because of Sunbelt's large footprint (250 offices throughout the world), we are well known in the middle market acquisition community, and remain in constant contact with active middle market investors. At Sunbelt, we target a segment of the middle market, comprising privately-held companies with annual sales of $5 to $100 million.

Historically, the lower end of this market segment has been underserved by national traditional investment banking firms. This has been especially true when the public M&A market has been highly active. Due to the unique nature of our firm, all middle market clients have the opportunity to work closely with an experienced team of business intermediaries, many of whom have previously owned or managed their own middle market companies, and are experienced in the process of bringing middle market opportunities to the marketplace.
