March 2024 Commentary

In these times of economic recalibration, where mid-market deal volume has reached a 12-month nadir, this data confirms the industry’s refocused efforts on value creation. This is driven by longer investment hold periods due to higher interest rate environments and multiple compression, resulting in a growing necessity to offset these effects with revenue growth and margin expansion.
