Download PitchBook’s Report here.
PitchBook’s latest US PE Middle Market Report is now out. Many of the overall deal trends mirror those of the broader PE market. One standout figure was early 2022 fundraising, which is off to a slow start. Only 33 middle-market funds closed in Q1, a visibly slower pace than the past three years. Middle-market dry powder levels fell by just 6.5% between 2020-2021 versus a 12.3% drop across the entire PE industry. About $423.1 billion was at the ready as of Q4 2021.
