Middle Market PE Trends Q2 2021

The M&A market continued its record setting year as Q2 2021 climbed to a historic finish for deal making. The second quarter recorded the second highest deal activity in a decade, a continuation of strong deal momentum post-pandemic.

Following mass shutdowns in 2020, the AIDC industry has experienced increased customer demand, driving business valuations to record highs. It is anticipated that with continued industry growth over the next several years, M&A activity will increase as new private equity firms enter the space and existing investors see to grow through acquisition.

Deal activity appears to have stabilized after an unprecedented 2020, when many buyers paused acquisition strategies due to macroeconomic uncertainty. The global M&A market has rebounded at an extraordinary pace, including a record-setting Q4, signaling an outsized deal environment moving into 2021.
