Mid-Market M&A: The Valuation Gap

Over the last year, a paradox has persisted in the North American mid-market: buyside interest in deals has been at an all-time high, and yet the number of deals has fallen. With corporate cash holdings and private equity dry powder still at high levels, the appetite for mid-market deals will remain robust. The question is: how can buyers and sellers close the valuation gap?

Mergermarket, on behalf of virtual data room provider, Firmex, interviewed six leading experts for insight on how big a part a valuation gap has played on North American mid-market M&A in the newsletter Mid-Market M&A: The Valuation Gap.

Points of discussion:

  • Factors contributing to the widening of a valuation gap in mid-market deal negotiations
  • Sectors seeing a pronounced gap
  • Effects of the widening valuation gap on private equity
