Note: For purposes of this report, we define the “middle-market” as companies with enterprise values between $10 and $250 million. Some third-party data sources do not present deal data in that size range on a standalone basis, to avoid excluding deals where transaction values were not disclosed (which is often the case for transactions in this size range). We reference overall trends as a proxy for what’s happening in the middle market.
