The middle market is humming along, according to PitchBook’s latest US PE Middle Market Report. Through June, about $214 billion has been invested across 1,635 deals. Both figures are slightly under last year’s pace but still ahead of the pre-COVID years. Middle market companies are being wooed by new faces—bigger buyout shops that are aiming lower, and private credit lenders, who are jockeying for middle-market deals amidst a slowdown in mega-buyout financing.
