Meridian Capital Sponsors & Attends Northwest Middle Market Growth Conference in Seattle
Published July 21, 2022
Meridian Capital was a proud sponsor of this year’s Northwest Middle Market Growth Conference hosted by ACG Seattle. The event welcomed 250+ investors and M&A professionals throughout North America to discuss recent and upcoming trends in the market.
There were several interesting themes and takeaways from the presentations and conversations at the event:
- Following record activity in the second half of 2021, deal volume in some sectors of the economy has slowed in the first half of 2022 as both investors and sellers evaluate recent market volatility and performance outlooks. Some sectors continue to experience significant deal volume.
- Record private equity fundraising and continued interest from debt providers is expected to drive continued capital availability and investor interest in 2022 and 2023.
- M&A activity and valuation trends are increasingly industry specific. Performing businesses in resilient or less cyclical industries are still expected to receive strong valuation premiums.
